After the pleasant dream that was last weekend (no shows! zero!), it’s once again fight week, as MMA fans gear up for two UFC events. Wednesday’s UFC Fight Night 45 is headlined by Donald Cerrone vs. Jim Miller. So, that’s probably not going to suck. Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 46/UFC: MeGregor vs. Brandao/UFC: Dublin is a little more difficult to get your arms around. With a main event pitting Conor McGregor against replacement opponent Diego Brandao and the UFC still seemingly sending mixed messages about whether it actually wants anyone outside the fictitious nation of Ireland to tune in, Ben and Chad aren’t sure what to make of it. Plus UFC 176 got “postponed” so maybe they’ll surprise us and have that on Saturday night instead.
All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

Sounds: This week’s music comes from noted MMA artist Chris Rini, who created the awesome Cain Velasquez-Bigfoot Silva woodcut that we’re going to be sending out to the grand prize winner of the second annual White Elephant Essay Contest. Rini also makes music. Or did. His band The Equation is now defunct, but you can still follow him on twitter @riniMMA and check out his MMA art at rinimma.myshopify.com.
