Welcome to Midnight Mania!
All street fight stories have roughly the same introduction — a lot of curse words, general shouting, and posturing — so even here, the first 30 seconds can safely be skipped without missing much. Immediately after, however, the action heats up, and the impressiveness of the man in the white jacket cannot be overstated.
Sure, it appears that white jacket man’s foe has roughly the combat skill and athleticism of an underfed sloth, but the style points must be considered. While slipping all over the place in dress shoes, our champion handily beat his opponent to a pulp with one hand without putting down his food or spilling his drink!
Better yet, he antagonized his opponent the entire time, delivering a verbal and physical beatdown simultaneously. This is street fighting made into art, and I hope everyone appreciates it.
I included a similar spoof that highlighted MMA’s zaniness last week, but this one is much, much better!

Sounds like Chan Sung Jung’s eye surgery was a success!
Eddie Alvarez is not impressed with Figueiredo’s excuses.
You gotta be careful with cramps while cutting weight because they can spread all the way down to the VAGINA— Eddie Alvarez (@Ealvarezfight) February 28, 2020
Sounds like UFC is really banking on either Megan Anderson or Felice Spencer to win, otherwise they’re promoting names that no one — NO ONE — has ever heard of.
Per @raphamarinho, the UFC are expecting Amanda Nunes to compete at UFC 250 in Sao Paulo on May 9.— Aaron Bronsteter (@aaronbronsteter) February 28, 2020
Nunes intends to defend the featherweight title against a challenger that will be determined following the two featherweight bouts this weekend at #UFCNorfolk https://t.co/0eX8LaBAbO
There are definitely easier ways to work out the core and shoulders, but then, it wouldn’t be Tony Ferguson if the workout was simple.
Yoel Romero’s dog is absolutely massive.
Gotta love Frank Mir’s facial expression while finishing one of the few twisting footlocks in MMA history!

I was lucky enough to be there live at this bout, and it was a really incredible showcase. A couple interesting tidbits that the caption does not mention: firstly, these two are teens. I believe the winner was 16 years old and the defeated athlete 14. Second, this was the only professional Muay Thai bout on the card. The rest were local amateurs competing in exhibition MMA, boxing, and Muay Thai bouts, then these two kids stepped up and completely out-shined everyone.

Full disclosure: I thought Dugong was solely a Pokemon.

Video by @bertiegregory | A male dugong feeds on seagrass in the southern Red Sea. Dugongs are closely related to manatees, and they look similar, especially from this angle. Their bottom halves, however, are very different. The manatee has a paddle-shaped tail; dugongs have a fluked tail, like dolphins. It’s thought that because of this tail, dugongs inspired the stories of mermaids! The fish in this shot are juvenile golden trevally. They hang out with dugongs to snatch any invertebrates spooked up by the disturbance. Follow @bertiegregory for more on these awesome animals. #redsea #dugong #diving #underwater #ocean
