Bringing you the strange and wild world of mixed martial arts every night!
Welcome to Midnight Mania!
The UFC doesn’t do gimmick fights, unless it has the potential to make a lot of money! In which case, UFC President Dana White would be happy to jump right on board. In this latest example, Conor McGregor and Brock Lesnar can stand aside, because their earning potential pales in comparison to athletic excellences Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg.
Billionaire beef stems from social media rivalry and has been evaporating for some time. But just this week the two discussed cage fighting. White sprang into action, speaking to both parties and revealing he was very interested in making it happen.
while appearing on Show Pat McAfeeWyatt discussed some of the complications in booking such an unusual match, revealing that it must have been an unsanctioned show competition due to the size discrepancy. In fact, White compared the potential bout to the UFC’s early open weight class days.
“I’ve talked to both of them back and forth, [Elon and I] Dana White (trans BJPenn.com). “I don’t know, listen. First of all, if they both agree and both say, let’s start here. Elon Musk is six foot two hundred and twenty pounds. Mark Zuckerberg isn’t, okay. There’s a big difference, this thing is going to be like UFC 1 for Christ’s sake. “
He continued, “We have to understand the weight stuff, I don’t know how the committees are going to look at this thing… Well, it’s going to be an exhibition, it’s not going to be approved by a committee. There’s still a lot of things you have to work through to make this fight happen.” But what I love and respect is that they’re both down, they both want to do it. They both want to fight. For people who don’t fight fans, it’s fun. It’s fun to talk about. It’s fun to think about. You know me man. I’m in the middle trying. Putting the pieces together and seeing what we can do.”
It still looks like a very long shot, but even a jiu-jitsu match or padded sparring session will draw a lot of eyes. Or a new idea, maybe this is the big break Power Slap needs?!?
The biggest lesson I learned in 2023 is that Zhalgas Zhumagulov is the funniest fighter on the list.
Marlon Vera is very sympathetic towards Henry Cejudo’s potentially injured shoulder.
Both of these matches look great. Tucker vs. Lopes looks like a very technical encounter with good finishing potential, and it will end up being an unconscious Oleksiejczuk against Njokuani.
This is my home except I have to keep writing while standing up and down.
Renato Moicano plays a member of the ratings committee, and immediately puts them to shame.
I can watch this for 20 minutes.
Eddie Abasolo lost a rather controversial decision to the great Setthishai this morning, but dear sir, what a great elbow sequence!
Slips, rips, and KO clips
Little did I know that fighters below middleweight could even attempt to submit to breast milk, let alone land it. This is a big move for heavyweights only!
I hardly cry from the late stop, but this could have been recalled after the first elbow knockdown.
If you’re ever in Thailand during one of Tiger Muay Thai’s BBQ Beatdowns, it’s a lot of fun.
The amazing instincts of the beaver.
Midnight Music: Australian rock band King Jizzard and The Lizard Wizard have dipped their toes into metal on their latest release, which has a very long title but begins with PetroDragonic Apocalypse. it is fun!
Sleep well lunatics! More martial arts craze is always on the way.
