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

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

McGregor’s noodle arms will never not be funny to me. This is one of the many cultural memes that earmark this fight and make the whole farce palatable- at least we get a good laugh out of it. If you can’t enjoy McGregor whipping his arms back and forth like a slinky toy in video games, next to John Travolta and Drake, in the club, on the dance floor… then what are you even doing online?

If you can’t see the above video, head over to MMAMania’s Facebook page to check it out. In the meantime, enjoy this shot of McGregor Junior, running the show like a young Boss Baby. Like father, like son.

This baseball brawl got real pretty quickly. Check out how fast that catcher changed levels for a double-leg. It didn’t work exactly as planned, but he didn’t have long before everyone else pile in anyway.

Here’s how the bad blood began: an extremely dangerous pitch at the skull.

A reminder of what remains the best punch I’ve seen a baseball player throw (skip to the 50 second mark)

That’s just wrong

I was on a betting website the other day and I saw some of these crazy prop bets. Fortunately, or unfortunately, I’m too poor to take advantage, so y’all go crazy for me.
