Welcome to Midnight Mania!
Khabib Nurmagomedov has moved from his life of fierce competition. Now that his reign as a champion has officially ended “Eagle” focuses on coaching, Raise the next generation of champions.

Can Kevin Holland make this a fierce kickboxing fight, or can Marvin Vettoli find his way?

If you miss this weekend’s insane wheel kick finish, you have a second chance.
This is a great sequence from start to finish! High kick, liver shot, left hook on chin!
Highlights from one of the many legendary wars in Eddie Alvarez’s career:
Here is an important note. Big and strong doesn’t hurt your chances in a street fight, but such attributes don’t provide protection from being hit in the face.
