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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

“The Gangster of West Linn” certainly has a verbose way about him, but one can hardly deny his effectiveness.

For the second time in a week, Chael Sonnen has taken to Twitter to deliver a multi-Tweet rant targeting his former opponent, Jon Jones. To recap the first exchange: Jones took offense to Sonnen’s “has-been” comment on Youtube and fired back, prompting Sonnen to go on his first tangent towards “Bones.”

Read it all HERE!

Apparently, Sonnen’s first rant was not enough to settle the beef. Since last night, Jones has been voicing his displeasure with UFC and and even threatened a hiatus from the sport, which has proved the latest fuel for Sonnen’s tirade of jokes and trash talk. Of course, there’s mentions of Jones’ numerous vehicular struggles as well:

NOBODY is gonna care if you WALK AWAY from the UFC, Dum-Dum
Just promise not to DRIVE AWAY, ok???

As far as I can tell, you haven’t put anybody in the hospital by

Is there any chance Sonnen and Jones ever fight again? Not at all, and the first result was definitive to say the least. However, in the world of Twitter debates at least, Sonnen remains undefeated opposite the divisional king.


Apparently, several of the top coaches in MMA are cowards. How shameful!

Brian Ortega has to be among the biggest Featherweights on the roster. Strangely, it seems like the average size of Featherweights in particular continues to grow — remember when Jose Aldo was considered big?

Michael Bisping has been consistent since day one!

Hmm … does this sound a bit backwards to anyone else?

Dana White on a potential Jones/Ngannou fight: “Obviously that’s a fight that people would love to see and these guys are taking a lot of smack back and forth, I don’t see that fight happening.”

So then how come the fight can’t happen?

Fighting comes with some unforeseen consequences!

This story happened a few weeks ago, but it still teaches a valuable lesson: high school wrestler > would-be kidnapper trash.

I have yet to see a boring Tim Elliott fight; sign me up for these scrambles!

Love the Brandon Royval vs. Tim Elliott fight, high scramble potential. Royval is a problem off his back.

On this day … a very pretty left hook counter from “Golden Boy!”

On this date in 1999, @OscarDeLaHoya caught Oba Carr with a nasty left hook for an 11th round TKO.

An entire thread of clips of Roy Jones Jr., perhaps the flashiest combat sports athlete of all time!

Midnight Music: For my money, “Crimson and Clover” is one of the coolest and most unique songs to chop the charts.

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