    What are your views regarding an Open Weight Grand Prix or simply a Grand Prix catering to a selected weight division in the UFC. Would it be feasible and if so, would this also gain more attraction which is sorely needed.

    Considering Mario Yamasaki's latest quote regarding fans' thirst for blood and it's relation to his late stoppages, is it fair to say that he should be immediately relieved of his duties as an MMA referee?

    Hi guys. Appreciate your excellent podcasts. My question this week is regarding Joanna versus Valentina December 8 in Toronto for the vacant 125 title. What must each do to win? Thanks & have a happy Thanksgiving.

    Hey guys, fan of your weekly gig, it's on point and hope it keeps growing.

    My question relates to the Fly weight division & it's recent title fight that was announced.

    I know a lot's been said about this match up being made, TJ vs Cejudfo. I for one feel it's near farcical, and the fact that this could very well be the final fight for the division annoys me on a few fronts but one more so than others, the fact that we won't see Deivson Figueiredo step up and fight for what I believe would have been a rightful title shot. The mans been tearing it up, is undefeated and in his UFC run he's finished 3 of his 4 opponents by legit smoking his competition. I had hoped he'd meet up with MJ but alas, shit happens but felt he was a deserving opponent for the champ, regardless of who held the belt.

    Thoughts on him, his perhaps missing out on a deserved opportunity and his next step; does he make the jump in weight or the jump in Organizations?

    Here to support the Mario Yamasaki related question.
    Are we witnessing the rise of new "wild west" MMA era?
    Fighters are allowed to cut insane amounts of weight. Cheap shots aren't properly addressed and sometimes completely ignored. Refs talking about "blood for the fans". Corners don't know when (or simply refuse) to throw the towel.

    The UFC is pivoting to Asia! Recently we've seen a lot more activity in both China and Russia (which is kind-of Asia). Which one of these markets do you expect will become the most important for the UFC? China with it's booming economy and billions of potential viewers -- or Russia with its plethora of MMA super-talents and sky-high interest in MMA?

    Thanks guys for taking the time to do this each week. Always entertaining.

    I think the question we all really want answered is, when is Crave gonna Cut That Check?

    Due to unfortunate timing and other situations around the holidays, we have to postpone tonight's episode of The Trenches until Friday, November 23th at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT.

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

    What do you feel is the genesis behind the trends of decreasing effort or lack of investment by UFC management in promoting their fighters in recent years, and what consequences would this have for their business and/or the sport in general?
