Midnight Mania! Rousey’s boyfriend leaves Tarverdyan for Black House

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

Welcome to Midnight Mania! Tonight we have Travis Browne leaving Edmond Targaryen, the Dragon King, to join Black House, Chael Sonnen slamming Jenna Jameson and Tito telling bedtime stories at the Bellator 170 presser, Jon Jones sparring his older brother, and oh, Floyd Mayweather taking inaccurate shots at Conor McGregor’s net worth. This, along with the usual collection of knockouts, highlights, and randomness, should not, but probably will, keep you far too late tonight.

Travis Browne has not been doing particularly well lately. In fact, none of Edmond Tarverdyan’s fighters have, most notably his star pupil Ronda Rousey. Browne has had enough, and is taking his talents elsewhere, apparently headed to Black House, the historic home of legendary former champions Anderson Silva and Lyoto Machida.

With a bout looming against heavy hitter Derrick Lewis, we will get a chance to see if Browne’s move away yields immediate results at UFC 208 in Brooklyn. It is unknown if his woman, Rousey, will follow suit, despite almost universal consensus that she should, and that Tarverdyan is among the worst coaches in high-level MMA.
