    Hi guys. Enjoy your show! I have some questions.

    1. The Korean Zombie put on a masterful first round KO of Edgar the other day. Who should KZ fight next? What's his path to a title shot?

    2. Who should Izzy fight next?

    3. Who should Usman fight next?

    4. Realistic assessment of Cerrone v McGregor would be appreciated.

    5. Other fights coming up that you're excited for and would like to highlight?

    6. In addition to enjoying the UFC I love watching fights from other organizations like One, Rizin, PFL, Invicta, Bellator, KSW etc. I think competition is healthy for all involved and would like to see these other organizations have success. Can you kindly comment on other organizations. Perhaps list them and mention whether it's publicly available information that they are healthy for the long run. Which ones do you enjoy watching the most? How you think they are doing going into 2020?

    7. Along the lines of the above question, is there an accurate way of determining how the other organizations are doing? For example, Bellator. I've read that they have a contract with Dazn ($30 million per year for broadcasting rights, from what I've read in comments). Is that guaranteed? If Dazn defaults on those payments is Bellator done? Or could they find another financial partner? I'm interested in hearing some unbiased thoughts on all these other organizations because I really enjoy watching them all whenever I can.

    Happy holidays!

    Is Ant really a casualty of the new California Law restricting freelancing? If so care to comment on this subject? Good luck BTW!

    Plus ummmm who fights Izzy and do you think Reyes has a chance?

    Dana teased 5-6 big fights for 2020 during UFC 245 media week. I can only think of about four, do you think we're in for some surprises headed into 2020 (possibly something involving Zuffa Boxing)? Or just another Dana White "BIG" announcement?

    Triple C abandons the UFC Flyweight division! They essentially kept it because of him. What do you think the future holds for this tumoltious divisions? Can Benevidez or Figuero shoulder his matle or will the UFC dissasemble it again?

    I would like to point out that the Early Prelims for UFC Korea held a to-ranked flyweight bout. So they seem unwilling to give it the promotional push still.

    With the faltering of Yadong, who do you guys think is the brightest prospect in MMA who is still in their early 20ths? Who will rule the future?

    Yadong 22 years
    Edmen Shahbazyan 22 Years
    Armen Tsarykian 22 years
    AJ McKee 24 years
    Salahdine Parnasse 22 years
    Christian Lee 21 years
    Or anyone else?

    We've gathered older questions from @Buff, @$$$money and @Glove about a potential tournament, and then potential openweight tournament, for the UFC. Would you watch a UFC tourney?

    The guys are excited about the question from @europe1 about punishing camps for their fighters that fail drug tests. They like him.

    Will Rory MacDonald bring new eyes to PFL and make it viable for future years, or is Season 3 the end for it?

    I wish there were tourneys all the time... Seems just about the only legitimate way of doing things these days, what with all these Instagram champions these days.

    What do you think about Ponzinibbio being removed from the UFC rankings when there were a lot of fighters who have been ranked for at least 2 years without having a fight?
