Welcome to Midnight Mania!
UFC President Dana White was a guest star for Peyton and Eli Manning during the “ManningCast” production earlier tonight (Monday, Dec. 5, 2022) during the showdown between the New Orleans Saints and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. . In a competitive game, legendary quarterback Tom Brady led the Buccaneers to victory at the last second, closing the game 17-16.
White is a lifelong fan of Tom Brady, which, along with the UFC’s partnership with ESPN, was apparently enough to earn White a guest starring role on the “ManningCast.” White talked football with the quarterback brothers. Still a promoter, however, White couldn’t resist showing off his latest toy: Dana White’s Power Slap League!
The two Manning brothers seemed a bit confused by the new sport, but who can blame them? Check out their reaction below:
Otherwise, the only thing of note coming from White’s appearance on the “ManningCast” was a lot of fan criticism, as well as speculation that White was sweating the money line due to a major Tampa Bay bet. (It would not be the first time!). All over Twitter, White’s knowledge of football was questionedand more than one person labeled White on “Worst Manning Cast guest to date.”

An interesting look at the mindset of Jon Jones. Ignoring all of his non-combat issues, “Bones” has always been a fascinating and effective mix of ruthlessness and strategy inside the Octagon.
Derek Brunson reflects on the gambling scandal:
UFC always too late. They should have banned us from betting on fights a long time ago. It would have saved me a lot of money with my trash**

In fact, it’s been a lot of fun watching Bryan Battle continually exceed expectations. Do you think he gets his fourth UFC win here?

Elbows, choke, armbar – good luck defending it all at once!
Any truly elite wrestler who can get decent at 1-1-2 will absolutely abandon their opponents. For athletes with this background, the fundamentals are all that is really needed up to the highest level.
Anthony Cassar had been waiting for a while to make his professional debut.

It doesn’t look like Junior has really recovered from the first blitz that knocked him out.
A great moment from the 2008 Olympics.
Midnight Music: I liked the entire Fountains DC album from earlier this year, but the single below really stands out to me. I remember the Smiths and the Stone Roses!
Sleep well fools! More martial arts madness is always on the way.
