Heavy Hands

Connor and Phil have no idea what is going to happen between Tyron Woodley and Gilbert Burns. It's a weird fight. In fact, the whole card is kind of weird, but not uninteresting. 

  • Gilbert Burns has the grit to emulate Nate Marquardt, but does he have the technique, or the chin?
  • Ivanov vs Sakai is a weird fight by heavyweight standards, which is to say that it might look sort of like a normal fight
  • Mackenzie Dern gets a bounceback
  • Katlyn Chookagian seeks to revenge herself on the sinister Shevchenko family
  • ...and more

Connor and Phil talk about heavyweights, and then it's on to more uplifting matters, like robberies.

  • Of all the ways Walt Harris vs Alistair Overeem could have gone, we got both of them. And it was sad.
  • Angela Hill--ROBBED
  • Edson Barboza--ROBBED?
  • Chito Vera--probably not robbed, it was really close. In fact they were all pretty close.
  • Eryk Anders vs Krzysztof Jotko reassures us that the earth is healing, and that there will always be a middleweight division

Connor and Phil lavish terrified praise on the newest version of Justin Gaethje, lest the next one come and find us.

  • Was Tony Ferguson finally shot, or did Trevor Wittman build the perfect machine to destroy him?
  • Henry Cejudo, the greatest combat athlete of all time, greater even than legendary pankratist Arrhichion, who paid for victory with his life, finally seems to know what he's doing, and then retires
  • How does Alistair Overeem beat Walt Harris? other than taking him down, obviously
  • Edson Barboza at featherweight.
  • Chito vs Yadong. Chito vs Yadong. CHITO VS YADONG.

Connor and Phil talk UFC 249, and it's such a relief to have another UFC event to discuss, that thinking of Tony Ferguson hardly even makes them cry.

  • Tony Ferguson finally gets his shot... at oblivion. Justin Gaethje might not win, but if he does, it'll be the saddest end to a legendary win streak in history
  • Dominick Cruz would've been an easy pick over Henry Cejudo in his prime, so what's stopping him now? other than age, inactivity, and fourteen new debilitating injuries
  • Calvin Kattar vs Jeremy Stephens. Hell yeah
