    We don't take questions from posters that are banned dozens of times and can't seem to take the hint they need to find somewhere else to post.

    Ant, if you could change one rule in the UFC, which would it be and why?


    2nd question option...


    Hey Ant, which fighting style or specific techniques do you feel are underutilized in MMA that could make an impact? Much like the front kick that Anderson introduced to Vitor's face, or the recent emergence of calf kicks

    Who is Jon Jones facing in his next title defense?

    With the Anderson-Walker booking, the list of potential opponents is growing smaller

    Could it possibly be a HW fight?

    This is a good question. I'm genuinely curious because we discussed Anderson as a top contender since he's on a bit of a streak, other guys are already scheduled and Jones wants to fight. With DC busy in a month, it's possible Jones will wait till the MSG card to fight him but LHW is really stuck.

    I should probably have read what the topic was about before I commented.

    The last question, he says it every show. In addition to being the Sherdog lead correspondent, he's also script writer for MMA on Point, the wildly popular YT channel that has all sorts of content.

    Come on, combat sports questions. These are for a writer from the main page, don't be that guy.

    No, but it's up there. I'm saving my best one for the Jordan Breen AMA.

    * Genki Sudo just got elected to Japanese parliament. I am not kidding. Does this mean that World Peace is finally upon us?

    * Ticket sales for UFC Newark were the lowest they've ever been in the eight times that the UFC has visited that woebegone city. Despite Colby's stick and media-attention, it doesn't seem to have transformed into viewers/sales. Do you think this lack of being a monetary draw will hinder Colby's rise or is attention and the admiration of the Imperial family alone enough to make him a UFC star?

    * Matt Hughes says that he's fine with Colby insulting him over his near-death incident right after beating up his pupil Robbie Lawler. Yet Rashad showboating during a fight is just unacceptable! Ant, Jason from the Bronx, What say you?

    * Why is one of the most dominant champions in MMA history struggling in ONE? Is it the ring? The competition? The weight-cutting (he seems to get regularly out-powered) The time-zone? Loss of competitive drive? Tell me, what is the answer! What is the answe!?

    PS: Do you agree in my prediction that Kindag will be DJ's easiest fight in the tournament? Considering Team Lakay's forelove for giving up the hooks and their backs while trying to scramble?

    Like always, thank you for good questions. I know at least two of these will make it on the show.

    How do you think LHW will look at the start of 2020, Bones still champ? I think if Walker can get another impressive finish against Corey Anderson then he will be next for the shot. Does he even stand a chance against Jones though?

    I can try to use that as a follow-up to the chitoortiz question, that works well. Time permitting, of course.
