This week on Heavy Hands, we've got one of the best events of the year to discuss, and--would you believe it--no terrible fight night card to preview! UFC 241 delivered, and so have we:

  • What adjustments did Stipe Miocic make for the rematch, and did any of them matter more than his seemingly impromptu decision to just whack Daniel Cormier's ribs until he was done
  • Nate Diaz looked rusty, Anthony Pettis looked surprisingly good, and then Nate Diaz won anyway
  • Borrachinha vs Romero, Yusuff vs Benitez--two thrilling fights in which everyone did their absolute best
  • Kai Asakura teaches us about the risks of Kyoji Horiguchi's hybrid style, and Casey Kenney does his Frankie Edgar thing against a much bigger man

You know how the cards have been absolutely whack for the last few weeks? Well, this is why. This week on Heavy Hands, we're breaking down the big fights of UFC 241. 

  • How much does DC's win over Stipe tell us about a rematch?
  • Can Nate Diaz do what he did to Cowboy Cerrone to one of the few guys who absolutely wrecked Cowboy Cerrone?
  • Yoel Romero vs Borrachinha, aka the Patrick Wyman Memorial Muscle Dude Fight. Costa's crazy aggression vs Romero's wrestling and peerless mind powers
  • Assuncao vs Sandhagen--a fascinating crossroads fight at 135

This week on Heavy Hands, we are surrounded by evildoers on all sides. Colby Covington dominated Robbie Lawler; Valentina Shevchenko is probably going to dominate Liz Carmouche, just much more patiently. Topics this ep: 

  • Can Shevchenko master her sinister nature and bring the fight to Liz Carmouche, or are we in for a serious staring match?
  • Vicente Luque is sharper, more careful, and more methodical than Mike Perry, who might still knock him out. FIIIIRE
  • Does Volkan Oezdemir have the takedown defense to stop Ilir Latifi doing his best Cormier impression?
  • After shutting out Robbie Lawler, is it time to ask whether Covington might even be a tough fight for the likes of Kamaru Usman?
