    Hey Ant,
    Who's your favorite ninja turtle and why?

    Also, who do you like in the Gus Jones rematch?

    Hey Ant,

    Which would be more competitive: Conor v. Khabib 2 or Khabib v. Mayweather?

    Sup Ant,

    I just wanna know how you work as a MMA journalist and how your martial arts experience helps with it.
    Also what do you think about the state of MMA journalism, I often read a lot of criticisms in the forums.

    Hi Ant. Enjoy your articles. Have you tried the DAZN app yet? If so what are your thoughts. If they add Rizin I'll check it out.

    Hello benevolent, non-violent Overlords!

    It seems that we're entering an era where it's more common and prevalent for UFC fighters to jump ship to other organizations. How do you think this trend will evolve (will it abate or escalate) and what will be its long-term consequences for the UFC and the MMA landscape as a whole?

    Question 1: What did you think of the Fedor vs Chael fight? Fedor’s Throws and vicious stand up looked liked his old self.

    Question 2: Black Beast with a quick turn around. Good or bad? DC disrespected that Popeyes chicken.

    Question 3: Yushin Okami fighting again what are your thoughts? Is he washed up?

    How do you feel about all this Mayweather/Khabib talk? Obviously that fight isn't happening. But do you think Floyd talking about the UFC and its champs is ultimately good for the sport?

    Any thoughts on Islam Mamedov purported sickness at PFL 9 after he won the quarters, taking him out of the semi's vs Rashid Magomedov?



    EDIT: Thanks for answering my question! Must have happened when Tavares rocked him in Round 1.

    Great show, guys, and thank you to everyone who submitted questions this week. Some more from this thread may make their way into tomorrow's 'Ask Ant' column, and we'll be back with another next Thursday!

    Love the rant about the tape delay, it's one of my biggest gripes with Bellator (with prelims being geoblocked for international viewers, so we are forced to look for illegal streams lol).

    Yeah, I was laughing and nodding along with that.

    Don't know if you saw it but he answered your question in his column on the front page
