Midnight Mania! Dumbest Champion That Has Ever Lived

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

Sean O’Malley is in the midst of his UFC 299 victory lap.

Having put on a master class against the absurdly durable Marlon Vera (watch highlights), O’Malley is doing the usual tour of podcasts and television appearances to talk about his performance, boxing Floyd Mayweather, and all his other future fight plans. During an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, “Suga” went in a surprising direction with his post-fight media: roasting former champion Henry Cejudo.

The two have traded verbal blows in the past, but they’ve never been booked to fight. Furthermore, now that Cejudo has lost two straight, he’s fairly removed from the Bantamweight title picture, opting to call for a Brandon Moreno grudge match rather than challenge another ranked 135-pound contender.

Despite the circumstances, McAfee brought up “Triple C,” and O’Malley couldn’t help but unload some hate.

“That was a long time ago, when Henry did that,” O’Malley began, referencing a previous run-in with Cejudo. “That was a little bit more when he was relevant. Henry has got to be the number one dumbest, shortest champion that has ever lived. He’s so stupid! Every time he talks, I think he’s getting dumber. Dude is so stupid, and I cannot believe he won a championship belt.

“He talks and he talks, says some of the dumbest s—t ever. But yeah, that was a long time age, he’s really dumb and short — whatever.”

At this point, the chances of O’Malley and Cejudo ever colliding in the Octagon seem very slim. The only way anything comes of this beef is if one of these two men — who both live and train around Phoenix, Arizona — drives to the other’s training room and throws down!

Maybe “Suga” could knock out another UFC champion in the gym?

Dustin Poirier deserves all his flowers after the awesome Benoit Saint Denis knockout.

We’ve seen enough randoms get low kicked by professional fighters. Who’s going to be the first idiot fan to volunteer for a Jon Jones oblique kick?!?

Shavkat Rakhmonov is ice cold.

A pair of very skilled Bantamweight veterans with very different styles will throw down!

Jon Anik was right, these people suck. You know with 100% certainty that if any of them happened across Arman Tsarukyan randomly on the street, they’d compliment his last win and ask for a selfie.

There’s only two people (that I can think of) it could be …

Jake Paul vs. Mike Tyson got its own terrible SNL joke — a special honor.

Slips, rips, and KO clips

Never saw it coming …

Here’s one way to end a round in emphatic fashion!

This is probably the best spinning back kick KO I’ve ever seen. It reminds me of Renan Barao!

This guy reacted to the most terrifying kind of accident like I react to traffic.
