Welcome to Midnight Mania!
I loathe to say it, but Jake Paul may possibly just be the greatest winner of Saturday night’s Mike Tyson vs. Roy Jones Jr. occasion. By scoring an certainly remarkable knockout opposite previous NBA star Nate Robinson (View IT!), Paul highly developed his experienced record to 2- and generated a ton of hype. Tyson himself even argued for a YouTube-tier title belt!
Immediately just after the struggle, Paul neatly had two names completely ready to go: Conor McGregor and Dillon Danis. The former bout is nevertheless a lengthy, lengthy way from going on, but the latter? Danis, the jiu-jitsu trainer of McGregor, is at the moment recovering from a knee damage on the Bellator sidelines, leaving him considerably readily available to box.
For Paul, battling Danis is an chance to build beef with McGregor, whereas it’s a large income opportunity for the grappler. The battle would make feeling to the stage that it looks probably.
Daniel Cormier likes the YouTube boxer above the professional fighter.
Danis has still to demonstrate a lot kickboxing in the cage, but he’s been education with a experienced fight staff for yrs. At the extremely the very least, he’s a important stage up from fellow YouTubers and former basketball players.
Is Cormier on the money or off his rocker?
Saenchai demonstrates the correct way to do a legends fight: book him in opposition to overmatched young foes.
Usual Nate Diaz: is this a combat announcement or retirement article? Who can say!
Seems like UFC Vegas 18 nevertheless has a primary celebration … for now.
Anthony Smith vs. Paul Craig sounds like a fairly pleasurable battle. Smith need to get, but then, is not that the case with lots of Craig’s wins?
Brian Kelleher shoots his shot:
On a associated money observe for fighters:
