  1. Yes, the UFC doesn't have all the best fighters

    44.4%
  2. No, those losses don't tell us anything

    16.0%
  3. A little Column A, a little Column B

    The northcutt loss? Wasn't he low level to begin with and expected to have a few losses anyways? He was never a world beater but only a good looking rising fighter with promise but needed alot of work. His loss holds no real bearing on the level of UFC fighters imo

    They were in ONE for a reason. Eddie is faded and Sage was always a hype job.

    Look at ONE's roster. Their champions wouldn't be in the top 15 in the UFC with the exception of MM and the division no one cares for.

    Brandon freaking Vera is ONE's HW Champ.

    So Youtube is giving us the problems, which at least means it's not on our end. We're still working on it, thank you for your patience.

    We're testing a different setup to see if we can get it working that way.

    There is more talent in the UFC than outside the UFC. That being said, simply being signed to UFC doesn’t mean you’re a world-beater. Lastly, Alvarez is a shot fighter, and Northcutt is not exceptional in any way, so their losses are not very meaningful to the UFC-vs-The World discussion.

    Unfortunately, due to outages beyond our control, The Trenches will not be airing tonight. We apologize for any inconvenience. We might air a supplemental show on Friday with Jason Burgos and a replacement host depending on scheduling, I will update this thread with more information as I get it.

    Thanks everyone. We have your questions saved and prepared to answer, and keep voting on the poll so we can come back to it.

    The UFC has the best fighters but outside of the top guys, they obviously have a bunch of filler that isn't as good as the top fighters of other orgs

    Alvarez is an overachiever and Northcutt is overrated

    I'm actually convinced the UFC is purposely letting competition outbid them on damaged goods, just so they overpay athletes. What is One going to do with Sage and Eddy now?
