Welcome to Midnight Mania! Non-Coronavirus MMA news has been scarce in the previous week or two, as the pandemic quickly shuts down the entire world. Despite Dana White’s fabled relentlessness, good news has been even harder to find — all that’s left is cancellations and new obstacles to the few bouts still booked.
