    Lets get to it...

    Since the announcement of Brock retiring... Like 20 minutes ago. Who should be Cormier's last fight... Stipe 2 , winner of Ngannou vs JDS or a Jones Super-Fight?

    Hi Ant. Invicta is doing a one-night tournament Friday. Eight fighters vying for the Strawweight belt. One-round fights in the quarter & semifinals. Three-rounder final determines the winner. Do you think the one-round fights will be fairly easy to score?

    * How do you even count significant strikes against a guy like Lineker!? His iron jaw never cracks no matter what bombs you throw at him. What I'm asking is, should significant strikes only be assessed on their instinsic power-level, or should they be assessed on how much they damage the opponent? Considering the disparity in durability between fighters it seems like a rather nebulous classification to me. And yes, I am salty about the Lineker vs Sandhagen decision!

    * Do you think that the UFC is giving Al Iaquinta to Cerrone because Al is the most beatable top LW for Cowboy? It seems like a pretty terrible stylistic match-up. I don't see how Al could counter his kicks and knees at all. Are they railroading their golden boy?

    * Dana White seemed very exasperated with Dmitrii Smoliakov pitiful performance against Greg Hardy. That seemed rather odd, since it looked exactly like what you could have expected from Dmitrii based on his past UFC performances. Is Dana trying to hide that fact that he knowingly booked a gimmie fight to pad Hardy's record? Or is White truly that ignorant about his own fighters?

    * I'm sorry guys, but we desperately need a weekly "One FC WTF!?" segment on this Podcast. Have you read One's latest "Agent Qualification and Eligibility Criteria"? What are your slackjawed reactions and analytical ruminations on this subject?
    • Currently a resident in Asia for at least one (1) year

    What are your thoughts on the Heavyweight prospect Juan Adams? I think a fight between him and Greg Hardy is inevitable.

    The durability and longevity of Glover Teixeira is amazing to watch. I was thoroughly impressed with his performance this past Saturday. Is he the best overall gatekeeper the Light Heavyweight division has ever seen?

    What did you guys make of Rory MacDonald's bizarre post fight speech after his draw against Jon Fitch?


    Hey Jason. Any relation to Shane Burgos?

    Can we also have a comment on why 41 year old Jon Fitch seem to be in the athletic prime of his life?:p

    I have to say though, it's refreshing to see an MMA fighter who says that God is preventing him from hurting people, instead of "God totally helped me murder-punch KO my opponent, dude!":D

    I voted that I don’t care. But, my feeling is he’s done.

    So the PPV system is what ended Brock's UFC Career, not USADA that everyone thought.

    Thanks, ESPN. <CanYouSeeMeNow><CanYouSeeMeNow><CanYouSeeMeNow><CanYouSeeMeNow><CanYouSeeMeNow>



    EDIT : No wonder he signed a brand-new deal with the WWE for 4 years 60 million dollars..

    Yep. Have to wonder what this means when it comes to Bones and Conor....

    'Cause if PPVs are now going to be online, it seems the UFC is headed to a WWE-PPV-style business model (with ESPN being their "network" as opposed to the WWE Network).

    I think Big-Names and their leverage have been made basically NIL right now.

    When the show begins, feel free to jump in the Youtube chat and talk with the hosts while the show in live. Ask them questions, respond to what they have to say or just chime in however you wish.
