Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Conor McGregor’s relationship with Artem Lobov was like a brotherhood. McGregor was still in Lobov’s corner shouting instructions and pulling strings to get Lobov into a contract with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Conversely, Lobov was still working for the Irish star as a sparring partner, and he beat Paulie Malignaggi in a bare-knuckle boxing match as part of the feud between the boxer and McGregor. Never forget: Lobov getting slapped was behind the infamous cart incident at UFC 223.
Now Lobov is suing McGregor for millions.
What about Dillon Danis, McGregor’s other well-known training partner? Danis first rose to prominence as McGregor’s jiu-jitsu coach before establishing himself further as an internet troll. Anyway, McGregor again confirmed earlier today on Twitter that he is still pals with the black belt.
Next up for the grappler is a celebrity boxing showdown against YouTube star KSI on January 14, 2023. He’s been looking for a high profile opportunity like this for years now, but KSI is the first outside of the MMA world. to take the bait. Responding to McGregor, he promised to do “serious damage”.
McGregor, on the other hand, did not take the bait. He has answered“Brother, you’re a friendly little nerd, I don’t care. He [Danis] should be back doing mma if he does that little burger match with you. I don’t care about this kind of boxing, I’m sorry. Had a good time.”
Will you tune in to Danis vs. KSI?
The Perth map takes another hit! It also continues the chain of terrible luck for Alex Perez, whose fights are regularly canceled for one reason or another.
Sounds like a good old mid-weight slime knocker.
Another fight announcement with some bonus comments:
Charles Oliveira isn’t too devastated by his loss to Islam Makhachev. I can’t wait for the return of “Do Bronx!”
Nothing like a great defense on display.
Take a look at UFC 283… I may like Mauricio Rua, but is 2023 ‘Shogun’ vs Ihor Potieria worth your $16?
With UFC PPV being $80 now that’s obviously insane… That means you’re paying $16 per fight on a 5 fight main card… Imagine paying more than the cost of a movie ticket to watch a fight of 15 minutes between Katlyn Chookagian and Manon Fiorot

Is half a million dollars an unreasonable demand for a very popular Top Five ranked middleweight?
Deron Winn reacts to his unexpected exit from the UFC:
Being released after a freak accident on their property the week before Christmas. The “it’s not a personal matter” man has never been so real ♂️ https://t.co/386BPSsgVj

Slips, tears and KO clips
There’s nothing better than an athlete who can get stunned and fight back as if nothing had happened.
Brutal heel at the connection of the temples …
How to make a failed withdrawal attempt count:
