Welcome to Midnight Mania!
It genuinely feels like the notorious attempts at reserving Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson — a struggle that was cancelled 5 periods and under no circumstances basically happened — imparted a lesson upon UFC President Dana White. When questioned about re-booking Donald Cerrone vs. Joe Lauzon following the match up’s next cancellation in as lots of months, White referenced that cursed bout and expressed no fascination in seeking a third time.
Donald Cerrone, nonetheless, has expressed desire in pursuing the match up further. Immediately after all, it is a fight that tends to make feeling specified their respective ages and information, and just about every guy is liable for a one withdrawal. Even though talking with MMA on SiriusXM, Lauzon took it a stage more, explaining that correct now it’s “Cowboy or bust.”
“I undoubtedly want this struggle now,” Lauzon said (via MMANews). “We spent too much time finding ready for Cowboy to not go and see it as a result of. For me appropriate now, it’s Cowboy or bust … that is the struggle I want, I imagine that is the struggle he needs. I recognize it sucks the way it’s labored out, and I’m sure Dana is upset with how it worked out. But I ensure you Cowboy and I are way far more upset due to the fact we’ve set in way far more energy than the UFC has. I assume it should continue to happen. I think just due to the fact it didn’t perform the initially two occasions, does not indicate it wouldn’t operate out the third time.”
White probably isn’t extremely happy with paying out partial purses for fights that really do not actually come about, but provided just how significantly of them selves both of those Lauzon and Cerrone have given to the business, possibly an exception can be built?
The two veterans have gained a favor or two.
This one’s a doozy. Andrea Lee’s ex-partner — you know, the a person with Nazi tattoos? — is taking excellent joy in Tony Kelley’s new ass-kicking at the arms of Adrian Yanez, spilling yucky personalized details in the course of action.
The next statement was deservedly mocked really a bit, and Midnight Mania will not stand for Georges St. Pierre slander (no disrespect to Kamaru nevertheless).

The notion that Sean O’Malley is so reminiscent of Jon Jones that it pisses off Daniel Cormier is hilarious. It may well not be real, but it’s still humorous.
