Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Kamaru Usman has proven his guts many times inside the Octagon, but even making it to the cage at UFC 268 is already an achievement. While on Podcast sent in fullThe Welterweight King revealed that he broke his arm three weeks before his second feud with Colby Covington.
“Yes, I broke it before the battle,” Usman revealed. “Yes, I broke it three weeks ago, and I didn’t throw it a day until the battle. I didn’t throw it until right backstage, when you warm up before the fight. I haven’t thrown my right hand in three weeks… I broke it on someone’s head, Justin Gaethje. ”
I expect Covington to declare the above HEARSAY! and request an X-ray within the next 48 hours.
Injured or not, Usman continues to cement his legacy at UFC 268, knocking out Covington twice on his way to a decidedly unanimous victory. Currently, there is no clear competitor for Usman’s title, though Leon Edwards may have the best argument. Meanwhile, Covington is also unregistered, but he is next targeting his ex Jorge Masvidal.
A little boxing to liven up your Wednesday night!
According to the big man himself, there were talks for Fedor Emelianenko and Shane Carwin in 2016.
October 2016 was supposed to have a pre-booked opportunity and the Fight Nights team, which is working on Fight Night 56, asked me to do a video call.
No one wants to make video calling Fedor, not even me. I just called him one of the GOATs and that would be an honor.

Flip, tear and KO clips
Sometimes the front kicks don’t really hurt at all. Other times, they will completely ruin your day!
One can only wonder what exactly is the background of this clip, although the lesson is clear: don’t throw crappy punches!
