    I'll admit, I haven't played a fighting game like Mortal Kombat in well over a decade. However, it does feel funny that it seems that if you want to become the UFC's middleweight champion you're going to have to fight Yoel Romero at some point.

    On this week's "Beatdown" we discuss a variety of subjects including Israel Adesanya's comment's that drew the ire of many. We also discuss whether or not you can take subjectivity out of MMA judging.

    Checkout this week's episode wherever you might download your podcasts by searching for Between Rounds Radio. There you can get many of our shows including pre-fight roundtables, "Beatdown After The Bell," "MMA Stories with Jeremy Horn & Monte Cox," and many more.

    Yoel with 4-arms could literally take over the world as we know it

    He’s more like Shang Tsung...

    Since they’re both centuries old.

    Beatdown used to be part of my daily routine when I was starting to follow MMA closely.
