We talk about Max Holloway’s impressive decision win over Frankie Edgar at UFC 240, where Cris Cyborg might land next and try not to get our hopes up for possible schadenfreude from Covington vs. Lawler.
Month: July 2019
We talk about Leon Edwards’ unanimous decision win over Rafael dos Anjos from UFC on ESPN 4 and what it’s going to take “Rocky” to break through in the minds of MMA fans. Plus, UFC 240 goes down Saturday in Edmonton and — sigh — Jon Jones is in trouble again.
Sometimes it seems like Germaine de Randamie is forever shrouded in controversy. Even her 16-second TKO win over Aspen Ladd Saturday at UFC Fight Night 155 likely won’t be good enough to make her a No. 1 contender, owing to outcry over an early stoppage. In addition to that, we talk about Urijah Faber’s surprise win over Ricky Simon and look ahead to UFC on ESPN 4.
We discuss all things UFC 239, including: Jon Jones’ lack of urgency against an injured Thiago Santos, Amanda Nunes pulling a Holly Holm on Holly Holm, Jorge Masvidal becoming a “breakout” star after 16 years and 47 fights and much, much more!
After Francis Ngannou dusted Junior dos Santos in 71 seconds at UFC on ESPN 3, is he a little bit of takedown defense away from being a transformative figure in the heavyweight division? Plus, we look at UFC 239’s dueling title fights.
