    It is a possibility that we will have 3 African born UFC champions in 2019 in Adesanya, Usman and Ngannou. How much of an impact do you guys see that having in terms of interest to participate in MMA from that region of the world?

    Name the opponents you guys would like to see next for the 3 GOATS. Anderson, Fedor and GSP.

    Do you guys see cross promotion between the UFC and other promotions as an actual possibility? If so, what would the UFC have to gain or benefit from doing such a thing?

    Frankie Edgar gets heavily criticized for getting too many title shots. But that's what comes with staying a top ranked fighter for so long. Can you guys see him getting a title shot at 145 or 135 next? I see both as real possibilities.

    What fight makes the most sense next for the MW title given the unfortunate situation this past weekend at UFC 234?

    Hey Ant, I'm feeling lost.
    When you can't trust the word of a cage fight promoter, what is there to believe in?

    @King in the North asked this question a few weeks ago already, I have it saved for a fun end-of-broadcast question.

    Hey Ant. What's your take on the relative level of competition of ONE FC compared to the North American promotions UFC/ Bellator or even PFL? (Aside from Eddie Alvarez and DJ, obviously)
    Burgos, I know you did a feature on Aung La N Sang so I'd love to get your take too

    LOOOOVVEEEEE having free fights with the One app and -- being on the East Coast -- I can pregame with ONE in the AM on Saturdays before watching UFC in the PM... but only one of their current champions has any UFC experience and it's mixed (i.e. Brandon Vera 8-7 UFC). The others (Aung La N Sang, Zebaztian Kadestam, Eduard Folayang, Martin Nguyen, Kevin Belingon, Adriano Moraes, Yosuke Saruta) collectively have one total fight in a major North American promotion, a first round KO by Sang in Bellator in 2012. There's plenty of great fighters that get their experience outside the UFC (Marlon Moraes immediately comes to mind) but I def want to hear your take.

    Also, any truth to the idea that because folkstyle wrestling is predominantly an American style, it gave Askren a huge edge to dominate in ONE bc those fighters don't encounter it as much?

    NCAA wrestling championships are a month away.

    Do any of the larger MMA organizations send scouts to sign prospects that are seniors in college (and on their last year of NCAA eligibility)?

    I appreciate the bump, Bobandy. We may be cutting back the show's length going forward, but we still want all the questions people have to throw at us.
