Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Only a day after Dana White revealed that Holly Holm vs. Aspen Ladd is no longer happening, a report has come out that Holly Holm vs. Amanda Nunes is in the works for UFC 237 on May 11 in Curitiba, Brazil, according to Combate, via BloodyElbow.com. Here’s what Nunes had to say about it:
It will be good for me. It has everything to happen. Let’s see if they call me offering it. She’s the only UFC champion I haven’t beaten yet. It will be a good fight… if it happens.

Also according to the same report, Nunes’ fiancee, Nina Ansaroff, will take on Tatiana Suarez on the same card. The co-main event for UFC 237 is a strawweight title bout between Rose Namajunas and Jessica Andrade. It would make for a historic night for women’s MMA. Nunes has won 8 fights in a row, and holds two belts after knocking out featherweight champion Cris Cyborg at UFC 232. Holm, a former bantamweight champion, is coming off a win over featherweight contender Megan Anderson.
Imagine having Daniel Cormier as your high school wrestling coach
It’s Friday night in Salinas, Calif. UFC champ & Gilroy head coach Daniel Cormier has been coaching kids for 3 hours at a local HS wrestling tourney. Still a few more hrs to go. Every so often ppl ask for pics. He wouldn’t rather be anywhere else. Incredible how into it he is. pic.twitter.com/XCvnkN5Hvm

All I can see is the bend on this wrist
This man is an old Dagestan lion. He’s a cancer survivor. This is what you get when you talk about people’s family, nation and religion. You get with a 5 piece. The art of war. Now guess who got the last lick, it wasn’t you. It was an old Dagestan lion pic.twitter.com/LTGFjRefGs

Forrest Griffin and his cat crack me up
Time will tell if Ben Askren is all he cracked himself up to be
Slips, Rips, KO Clips
Wanderlei Silva was a savage in his time
This guy is unkillable
