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. Tonight, we have an exception, as Combate reports that former Rizin Bantamweight champion Manel Kape (15-4) has signed a multi-fight deal with...

Michael Fiedel is deputy editor of TheBodyLockMMA.com and a staff contributor for Flo Combat. I recently sat down with Fiedel via Skype to discuss the ongoing situation with COVID-19 and how the pandemic has changed the landscape of MMA as we know it. I started by asking Fiedel how the coronavirus has impacted his work as journalist. “From a MMA perspective it’s freed me up to be able to write a lot, which normally would...

It’s looking less and less likely that Khabib Nurmagomedov will be able to make his lightweight title fight against Tony Ferguson, which is penned for April 18, 2020 at a location that is still to-be-determined. That’s because “The Eagle” is currently grounded in Russia due to the country’s lockdown regulations as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

They’ve fought twice (and have been booked a few times more than that), with “Bones” winning the first fight by unanimous decision in January 2015...
