    Main page contributor Ant Walker needs your questions for his mailbag column and the live chat show The Trenches which will air on our YouTube page Wednesday at 8pm ET/5pm PT.



    What do you want to talk about in the fight world? To quote Ant, "come get this work."

    What do you think of the growing popularity of bareknuckle boxing as a sport? Many former mma fighters have made the crossover, Does it stand to contend with mma or take some of its marketshare eventually, or is it more of a fad that wont last? Is the sport sustainable for fighters from a health perspective?

    Is Damir Ismagulov the most pillow fisted fighter ever? The guy throws nothing but bombs yet can't seem to hurt anyone.

    How would a fight between Dominick Cruz at his best and Henry Cejudo at his best go?

    We've answered that question directly a few times before. Basically, the synopsis of their feelings is that it's already peaked, and was considered a cash grab for a few fighters although one of the two major BK orgs didn't pay anyone anything.

    I don't mind revisiting it in light of the epic clash of Bigfoot vs Gonzaga. May the weakest chin prevail

    What are your thoughts on how women are treated in the UAE and how you feel WMMA will be received this weekend?

    So... Cyborg fights a legit 145 in Budd. Then? Cross Promotion Fights?

    Who should be first for Anthony Johnson at heavyweight? Top guys like Blaydes or maybe somebody lower down like Walt Harris or Tuivasa?

    * Ni hao fellow Gweilos! Will Chinese jetlag be seen as the Russian Winter of MMA? Will champs/high-ranked contenders have conflicts with the UFC about fighting in these time-zones that discombobulate the senses? Should it be a fighter's right's issue? This question has been sponsored by Zaleski dos Santos and Jessica Andrade fans worldwide.

    * Even the Chinese seems to love this intergender fight-talk, with Weili saying she will only fight Cejudo if he becomes a ladyboy! Silly as it is, this battle of the sexes spiel definitively draws a lot of casual interest. Should intergender promotion (not actual fights) be heavily used in hyping WMMA champs? After all, remember what a stir the Rousey comments caused about her KOing male fighters. Is this avenue a golden promotion-tool for females -- or are there genuine pitfalls by doing the "she could beat men" marketing gimmick?

    Will Bellator ever snag a UFC champ at the end of their contract?

    How's the neighborhood at Bellator for Cyborg?
    Putting it best:

    Cyborg is often treated as only fighting cans, I think much of it is due to either people not wanting that risk (and end up on 135) or whenever a new big name comes around it's sudden flatened by her. UFC's 145 was a scam, are we going to see a 145 division there?

    What's the total payout of the Reebok deal so far? And where did the rest of that money go?

    Does the UFC have any plans for backup fighters for Nurmagomedov vs Poirier?

    Do you guys think Weili Zhang's comments towards Tripple Cringe becoming a lady boy in Thailand was aimed partially towards Waterson?

    For stand up fight lovers...what promotion would you guys recommend? I've enjoyed the Karate Combat events so far.
