Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Paul Felder is a guy who wears a lot of hats. The 35-year-outdated veteran stays a prime-ranked Light-weight contender, but he also functions as a commentator and cornerman. Subsequent a frustrating split-determination reduction to Dan Hooker that ended his get streak, it was not a comprehensive surprise to see Felder depart his gloves in the ring.
Of program, this is MMA, and the first retirement not often sticks. Felder shortly expressed his willingness to return for any attention-grabbing worries. Seemingly, a shorter-detect, 5-spherical fight with a previous winner in Rafael dos Anjos qualifies, as “The Irish Dragon” jumped on the chance just a few days back.
Will he adhere all over following this bout? Even the gentleman himself is uncertain.
“I say 50-50,” Felder explained (transcription by using BloodyElbow). “I was pondering about that. What a way to just be like, ‘Boom! Mic drop.’
“(The odds will) possibly do maximize (if I win),” he continued. “If I drop, then I could want to have to get back in there for a single additional. It might eat absent at me, just form of like the Hooker battle that I was prepared to transfer on. And then it’s like, ‘No.’ I even now have not proven really what I’m capable of.”
Get or reduce, Felder understands that his time is virtually up, but the specifics depend on how almost everything shakes out following this primary event slot.
“I know I’m nearing the close of my vocation shortly, and this, I imagine, it is get-win for me,” Felder reported. “Because if I go in there and I can end and conquer RDA, a former champ, then it presents me a whole lot of marketing details to be obtaining these even bigger fights which seem to have been eluding me in the best five of the lightweight division listed here in the UFC. How do you not give me a thing big right after this if I go in there right after stepping up?
“If it doesn’t go my way, then I saved the day. I’m heading in there to test to gain.”
Anthony Pettis kicks the can:
Kelvin Gastelum vs. Edmen Shahbazyan appears like a very entertaining struggle of perilous strikers.
Khabib and his father get a mural in Dagestan.
With the bout in between Conor McGregor vs. Dustin Poirier inching closer to an formal announcement, is Michael Chandler vs. Tony Ferguson the fight to make? I’d look at!
Excellent coaching option for the next period of The Supreme Fighter (TUF)? The warmth would be genuine, but I truly feel like these two would be unwatchable collectively by episode three.
This Michelle Waterson fight scene is very interesting!

Generally, the go-to from this bolt cutter situation is assault the d’arce, but knees to a grounded opponent transform the match!
Be sure to y’all … stop fighting on concrete.
Head the guard rails.
