    Cliffs:
    - RC thinks Islam vs Moises wasn't exciting, DC laughs at him and says he should watch kickboxing if he gets bored by grappling
    - with Poirier and Oliveira fighting next, that leaves Gaethje and Dariush that have a chance to fight Islam...DC excludes Chandler because he's a "smart guy" to have avoided Islam's call-out
    - Gaethje should fight Chandler because that's already been hyped
    - DC says "unfortunately for Dariush" that leaves him to fight Islam and "I love Benny D, but everyone's getting smashed!"
    - RC says Dariush is another boring fighter but him vs Makachev could be exciting because Dariush may be able to beat Islam (DC rolls his eyes at this)
    - DC reminds us of the back-and-forth during Drakkar Klose vs Beneil Dariush and says Dariush wouldn't get that opportunity against Islam because Islam would ground him

    Based DC putting casuals in their place. There's going to be a lot of screeching and moaning before Islam's next fight: "BORING! HE DIDN'T FIGHT A """TOP""" OPONNENT!" But once Islam takes out one of the overranked, overhyped fake top 5 cans, these same whiners are going to be exposed as absolute morons. Tick-tock...

    I can't believe anyone would spend time watching this b level show. Ariel and DC was the goat show. This is terrible.

    RC is right. It was boring. It was dominant, but it was boring. They wanted Islam to smash Moises, he dominated Moises, he didn't smash him. I'm still a fan, but I'll call it like it is. I think if he fights chandler, he will get the best fight out of Islam and Islam will smash him. This is similar to Usman's issue early in his career. Before Colby, he never really had anyone to push him. If you don't push usman, the dog won't come out, he's said something along those lines. I think that's the same case with Islam. If you don't actually try to fight with this dude, make it gritty, he's just going to dominate you in a style that might be seen as boring. If you fight, I think we'll see the best Islam yet and he'll smash guys.

    Nothing MMA related can be B-level when hosted by one of the GOATs like DC!

    DC and Ariel was a tad better than DC and RC but since DC was and is the main attraction to the show it doesn't make that much difference to swap Ariel with RC

    Believe you me is by far the better MMA related podcast out at the moment. I like R.Clark but only when it comes to NFL, not saying he isn't a fan of MMA clearly he is, but this podcast seems to be lacking charisma.

    #14 Thiago took Islam into the "championship rounds"

    DC is hyping a fellow AKA member

    reasonable fight fans will wait until Islam fights a Top 5 before passing judgment

    Get used to it! Because that's how Islam's going to win the belt and stay champ....he's going to take them down, make them tired, and make them tap

    That's the thing. I think Islam will go to another level the way usman did. It just hasn't happened yet. I think it will. I was a fan of usman when he was considered boring too.

    Islam has to be more active, ufc is doing a big favor for him giving him such a high undeserving ranking, because ufc can't do their jobs correctly.

    Reasonable fight fans recognize talent when they see it. And I'm glad Islam took Moises to the fourth round to get his official first championship round in, because now if any of those overranked "top" 5-10 cans get tapped by Islam earlier than 4th round, it will be objective proof that they never deserved to be ranked in the first place, lmao.

    Said it before and 100% agree with DC that these are the fights to make.

    Where I disagree, however, is that Islam is going to steamroll Dariush. I think Dariush might be Islam's toughest fight in the division, stylistically.

    If I were Darius id take that fight ASAP !!

    try get him out the way and then coast for a while until the rematch

    if he smart he could dance around for a couple years as champ

    ESPN has all the money in the world and they can't find some decent MMA hosts that know wtf they're talking about.

    There's no objective way to say RDA, Tony, Conor, Hooker etc should be ranked higher than Islam.

    If you think Islam is over-ranked list how you would rank top LWs

    Dariush is managed by ali and wants time off for the birth of his daughter that's coming in Dec or something iirc.

    Also, Beneil is not a top 3 fighter. We know this.

    Islam is actually underranked, because he would be the absolute bookie favorite over any fighter in the division including the LW paper """champ""".

    Crazy stat they showed in this video - Islam has the 2nd highest win % in UFC LW history! (Of all LWs with 6 or more fights)

    First place is Khabib (at 100%) and 2nd is Islam at 90%.

    These guys are on another level
