    Hi ant.
    Wondering about your opinions on European mma. Whether it's heading in the right direction. Or there is still a skill gap. Exclude russia.

    Was Dana White in the "right" for critiquing Oscar de la Hoya regarding the Liddell-Ortiz match.

    Do you think that full and unrestricted ped usage will ever be allowed in an mma organization? And would you agree in saying it would be the greatest thing ever since the glory days of Pride and pre-usada UFC?

    If Anderson Silva's middleweight legacy is tarnished because of the PED positive results, who is the best (clean) middleweight ever ?

    Who takes it Ant? The Spider or The StyleBender? Do you feel the age gap is gonna have a impact on this fight? If not what do you believe will be the deciding factor in this fight? Thanks always Ant, Bless you and your fam!

    I'm absolutely going with Israel, he is a master level striker already imo, but never underestimate a legendary striker such as Silva is the philosophy I'm going with in this fight.

    How does aikido work in MMA? How about Tai Chi?

    Hello Ant, Jason, and any Spouses who may be appearing in the background.

    Sage leaving the UFC got me thinking. Is it easier to build hype for a fighter Outside the UFC than it is Inside the UFC?

    Ben Askren has beaten relatively low-level competition in One FC and is being treated as a Top 5. Another example would be Nikita Krylov whom upon his return came with a lot of momentum behind him and got to face Top 5 Jan Blachowicz!

    Meanwhile, a super-talented fighter like Gregor Gillespie doesn't seem to be able to get much traction at all! And there are many other UFC-fighters who seem to be in the same boat.

    PS: Thanks for all the shoutouts you've given me. I almost feel like a sidekick

    Ant man how's it mate?
    So who do you see as Conor McGregor's next opponent? Obviously Cowboy has been discussed at length so do you feel this is his best way back to maybe starting a winning streak?
    Cheers pal☘️

    Spider is an OG with a top running... yet disputable... GOAT run... who is over the hill.

    So if you are wanting your newest prospect to become you're new cash cow... this is a perfect move.

    Casualz won't get the reality of Spider being over the hill.... but OG's will... & likely riot in forumz about it.

    On the flip... FTW if Spider takes him out. :eek: That's the possibility that we love though. Literally anything can happen.

    In a perfect world Ade become the new cash cow that the UFC has been needing imo. We need a young one at this point.

    Thanks Ben for filling in this week. I really enjoyed your article They Are Who We Thought They Were about the Tito/Chuck fight. That whole card left me with an existential crisis as well.

    My question for you is, can you think of any potential match ups that you would refuse to watch? Is there a line you just won't cross?

    For Jason, reading through your interview with Sityodtong of One Champion, do you think they have the potential to challenge the UFC for dominance in the MMA world at some point down the road? The numbers he cites are impressive if true.

    We're experiencing some minor technical difficulties in the transition and will be right back.
