Bringing you the weird and wild from the world of MMA each and every weeknight!

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

In the south of Brazil, the Rio Grande do Sul state is currently experiencing severe flooding after continuously heavy rain fall. The region is expected to continue suffering flood conditions for the next month, which could displace up to half a million people.

Thankfully, at least one hero has intervened, as UFC Middleweight contender Michel Pereira was recently seen helping those affected. Today, more footage released of Pereira, as the Brazilian can be seen rescuing a large amount of dogs — likely trapped or abandoned — from dangerous conditions. In the clips above, Pereira is seen carrying a dog off a roof with a flash light in his mouth, carefully navigating his way to the deep waters. In another clip, Pereira is helping pull a boat containing half-a-dozen dogs through the flooded streets.

Pereira posted a couple times on social media to update the world on the struggles of Rio Grande do Sul.

Translated via Google Translate, the latter post reads, “These are some sad scenes. These are some cool stuff. But there are scenes that you and I need to see to understand how much Rio Grande do Sul needs us right now.

We’re several days into this seemingly never-ending struggle. The water stinks. Water hurts from being cold. Water makes everything difficult. But today alone, 26 dogs and 3 guinea pigs were rescued.

We’re here for you. Let’s get this out of here. Keep donating, keep supporting”

In the cage, “Demolidor” has been nothing short of spectacular. Pereira has won eight straight bouts, mostly in highlight reel fashion. He’s been particularly excellent since moving up to 185 lbs., stopping his last three opponents in less than four minutes combined.

Now ranked at No. 13, a Top 10 opponent is probably next for Michel Pereira whenever he returns to action.


What are the odds Sean O’Malley vs. Merab Dvalishvili ends up headlining the one-off UFC Sphere event?

Daniel Cormier has a chronic case of foot-in-mouth syndrome.

Jose Aldo has the greatest takedown defense of all time, and it’s not even close.

Championship hustle from Alexa Grasso.

Amir Albazi tried to big dog the Raw Dawg, and it didn’t work out.

Dan Ige wants all the ultra tough unranked Featherweights. BMF material!

Are you hype for Oleksandr Usyk vs. Tyson Fury?

Slips, rips, and KO clips

It took me a couple watches to see the shot that finished him.

Mike Trizano was a skilled Featherweight who put on some good fights! Thought his position on the UFC roster was deserved.

A strong sprawl and a head kick on the break — good tools for a kickboxer making the transition.
