Disagreement is not something to be feared, but rather embraced. Our differences are what make us human. They don't separate us; they bring us together.
And that is why Patrick Wyman is still on this show despite being totally wrong about Stipe Miocic vs Alistair Overeem.
In fairness, it isn't an easy fight to call. Miocic is relatively new to this game--especially compared to Overeem, the heavyweight division's most experienced veteran--but he is durable, and well-rounded, and dangerous. Still, I think Overeem is a tough matchup for his first title defense, especially given the recent changes his style has undergone. We hash it out on this week's episode of Heavy Hands, gently making our cases for each of these two elite heavyweights.
There is time also for the co-main event, a rematch between Fabricio Werdum and Travis Browne, as well as Urijah Faber's bantamweight showdown with top prospect Jimmie Rivera. Is Faber finally reaching the end of his road, or will he shut the gates in Rivera's face as he has so many others? Joanne Calderwood vs Jessica Andrade has us feeling all giddy, too, and we cap things off by answering listener questions at the end of the show.
All in all, this episode has everything you've come to expect from Heavy Hands. Fight breakdowns, silly banter, fan interaction.
And Pat being wrong. That too.
