Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Michael Chandler’s signing UFC is probably the biggest pickup of the year for the promotion. He joins the already light talent category, but after Habib Nurmagomedov retires unexpectedly, maybe the time is perfect to accumulate even more division! The UFC is referring to Chandler’s signing as a major move, injecting him directly into the title mix as a backup for the lightweight title last week.
After UFC 254 is over, who will it fight?
Chandler gave his opinion on the lightweight category while talking to The Schmo, “There are a lot of different options right now,”
More than anything else, Chandler is chasing the excitement factor of a match against the Accent, which would certainly guarantee at least one bonus for someone!
“At this point, with the way things have changed tonight, I think the battle with Justin Gaetje has always excited me more than anyone in the entire division,” Chandler concluded. “More than Conor or Habib, although the mystique of beating Habib and taking his 0 is something special, or fighting Conor on the most lucrative card of the year and earning the most money, the red panties, as he likes to he calls her. It’s all great, but when it comes to straight-up wrestler-wrestler, hand-to-hand combat, mano mano, American blue-collar wrestler in a small town against American blue-collar wrestler, it’s me and Justin Gaette cage against each other, so is exciting to me. “
In the end, the battle really makes sense if Gaethje is looking for a quick turnaround. However, Ferguson is always on the waiting list and is obviously ready for work, so “El Cucuy” can make the first blow to the former Bellator champion.
One thing is for sure: The light is still in order!
MMAmania.com is having trouble embedding Instagram videos for some reason (we’re working on it!), So stealing Instagram videos that were posted on Twitter is the best I can do. Nevertheless, Connor McGregor will work!
I don’t know if I believe that or not, but the idea of Habib choosing to pass Justin Gaetje with a concrete move is great … but is it too early to say that maybe Gaetje should train more BJJ? Khabib is Khabib, but he immediately gave up terrible positions.
A great tragedy of our time is that Khabib vs. Ferguson was stolen from us by the gods of MMA themselves. El Cucuy still has hope!
Chase Hooper tried to make up a joke for Borat after Shavkat Rakhmonov’s debut victory (WATCH!) And he paid for it.
UFC Europe really shouldn’t have done Jessica Eye that way.
Alex Oliveira did more than we thought during combat week.
Sending positive thoughts to Alex “Cowboy” on Oliveira from the UFC. His manager Alex Davis (@Alexdavismma) tells me that Oliveira’s 2-month-old son fell ill last week and was admitted to the intensive care unit. Oliveira used her fight money from UFC 254 to move him to a private hospital.

Fiches, tears and KO videos
Speaking of Rakhmonov, here he is in the welterweight category, who opposes a different download with another slippery pass back into the M-1!
A brutal, focused focus on destroying the leading leg here:
Hitting is always great!
I sent this video recently and it is a real presentation of my household every night.
