Heavy Hands

Merry Christmas and a happy new year! Fights are happening soon.

Up to now, UFC 232 has been a shambles. After yet another failed PED test for erstwhile light heavyweight champ Jon Jones, the UFC, and the commissions which are supposed to regulate them, conspired to move the card from Vegas to LA on a week's notice, not even bothering to tell most of the fighters on the undercard about the expensive change. 

Of course, the fights are still happening, so we set (most) of our complaining aside and look at the matchups, as such. And--let's be real--UFC 232 is one hell of a good card. Just be sure to blame Jon Jones for this episode being late.

Topics this week include:

  • How close was the first fight between Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson, really?
  • Is greatness still within the Mauler's reach, or is a full, proper camp enough for Bones to overcome his size?
  • Cris Cyborg's underrated technique, and Amanda Nunes' bantamweight physicality
  • Is Alexander Volkanovski ready for Chad Mendes, and if not, would he ever be?
