Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Let this go down in history as the fastest feud in light heavyweight history.
In the aftermath of Jan Blachowicz’s knockout victory over Dominick Reyes (look!), Some are unimpressed by the new boss. Notably, Jon Jones suddenly began to question his move to heavyweight in favor of regaining his title, while former champion Daniel Cormier recently discussed the Polish athlete with Ariel Helwani on their podcast.
“Jones beats Blachowicz. Too slow. (Blachowicz is) too slow to beat … because the thing about Jones people don̵
Blachowicz did not appreciate the remarks from the retired “DC” and offered to give Cormier a closer look at his abilities.
This is precisely how the fighters get sucked back into the mix, but Cormier seems quite firm and satisfied in his current stance, respectfully arguing away from the potential opportunity.
No champion of chance, congratulations on a great win. You are the man! Now you are the king, you shouldn’t worry about what an old retiree is saying. Great job getting that title! https://t.co/9upejqah5P

Fortunately, Blachowicz didn’t hold a grudge for long, immediately dropping the matter and offering respect himself.
While Blachowicz may not have secured his next title challenger with this little swap, he may have a future in conflict resolution!
Guys, stop with the jokes. This is simply “gross and useless” and hurts Paulo Costa’s feelings!
Chael Sonnen would never try to instigate a fight or annoy Jon Jones. Never!
Izzy would have whipped JJ. If there were 5 hits, IZZY wins all 5.

The conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan forced Rizin star Tofiq Musayev to join the army.
Just a little explanation here.
It is not Musayev’s fault. It is a government rule. Remember Korean Zombie / Do Hoo Choi Mandatory Military Service.
Same case but now it appears Azerbaijan is calling reservists to fight in the Armenian conflict. https://t.co/Wfxg3ILRdo https://t.co/ruTZxmTxm4

Great animation meets good technical analysis!
Darren Till who usefully delivers tonight’s portions of “Weird and Wild!”
Dustin Poirier is rightfully still a bit salty about his negotiation woes.
Slips, rips and KO clips
Fantastic use of struts along the strings:
Another great use of the uppercut, this time on the counter after making a clean shot!
Taunting is a high risk, a high reward.
Mark your calendars!
