Midnight Mania! Man wins street fight one-handed without spilling his drink

Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight!

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.

Insomnia

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.

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.

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!

Slips, rips, and KO clips

This thread is still going, but about a dozen Mike Tyson fights are currently available to watch for anyone who would like to learn more about the early “Iron” years.

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.

Always be aware of the choke!

Random Land

Full disclosure: I thought Dugong was solely a Pokemon.

Midnight Music: Joseph Benavidez fights for a world title in less than 24 hours, so tonight’s song is in honor of “Beefcake.”

Sleep well Maniacs! More martial arts madness is always on the way.
