Heavy Hands

A short discussion of how exactly we expect Poirier to destroy Hooker, and then Connor tenderly consoles his dear friend Phil, who was wrong.

  • Dan Hooker thinks fighters who retire on the stool are marshmallows, which is a position no one asked him to take before stepping into the cage with Dustin Poirier
  • Mike Perry vs concrete
  • Phil has first nice, big cry in a long time. There, there. Josh Emmett can't hurt you.
  • and more!

Connor and Phil break down the upcoming card, which is QUITE strong, and review Eye vs Calvillo, which was QUITE BAD.

  • Alexander Volkov is among the most skilled heavyweights in the world, and that doesn't look like it will be enough
  • Phil's hatred for Josh Emmett reaches unprecedented heights as he contemplates the possibility of Shane Burgos getting aboslutely deaded 
  • Jessica Eye is incapable of change
  • plus our breakdown of the very exciting Fili vs Jourdain and more

Connor and Phil preview the surprisingly interesting Eye vs Calvillo card, and mourn two great perennial contenders who will contend no more.

  • Jessica Eye is going to win by being just big enough not to lose the only kind of fight she knows how to have
  • Can Ray Borg build on the boxing he showed against Ricky Simon? Is Charles Jourdain a problem for Andre Fili?
  • Felicia Spencer's terrible corner, and the maturity of Amanda Nunes
  • Assuncao and Formiga... we love you both. RIP
  • Aljamain Sterling shocks the world, prompting the UFC to knuckle down on putting together Yan vs Aldo for the vacant title

Tommy Elliott (@Muay_Khaoboy) of the Fight Site joins Connor and Phil to break down the big matchups of UFC 250.

  • Does Felicia Spencer have like... any chance? Any shot at all?
  • Raphael Assuncao seems tailor-made to beat Cody Garbrandt, but has he gotten too old for the former champ?
  • We are all confused, frightened, and excited by whatever may happen in Aljamain Sterling vs Cory Sandhagen. 
  • plus, the slow demise of Tyron Woodley, and more
