Heavy Hands

Connor and Phil abase themselves geeking out over Jan Blachowicz's big win, and also there was a matchup-of-the-year main event too, I guess.

  • Paulo Costa opted for a dick measuring contest and got smoked. It was as gay as it sounds
  • For the first time ever, the UFC has a light heavyweight division who is, certifiably, Actually Good
  • Brandon Royval is a madman and you must watch every one of his fights
  • And more!

Connor and Phil break down the impending clash between Israel Adesanya and the King of the Bitchs himself, Paulo Costa.

  • The sexual tension is as high as the stakes. How does Adesanya deal with relentless pressure, attrition, and durability that Brorrachinha brings to the table?
  • In the co-main, Heavy Hands patron saint Jan of Rivia could be a uniquely difficult test for would-be champ Dominick Reyes
  • Kai Kara-France and Brad Riddell fill out the City Kickboxing roster for this event with two unique expressions of high level kickboxing

Connor and Phil break down a top heavy but solid fight night card, and lament the seemingly inescapable fate of Tyron Woodley.

  • You think losing 15 rounds straight is rough, imagine losing 10 rounds and then the next five are to Colby Covington
  • Cowboy Cerrone's been on a slide, but Niko Price is literally only good at one thing
  • Could Gerald Meerschaert's willingness to grapple be the key to throwing Khamzat Chimaev off, or is it just a less elaborate method of suicide?
  • Johnny Walker vs Ryan Spann hurts so good
  • and, of course: KEVIN HOLLAND ALERT

Connor and Phil are probably a little too hard on the quality of the next UFC card, but that doesn't stop them from digging into a whole smattering of different matchups.

  • Angela Hill probably should have beaten Claudia Gadelha, but Michelle Waterson looks like an open door into title contention
  • We are surprised to discover that we love Khama Worthy
  • Matt Schnell and Tyson Nam each specialize in winning the one style of fight which the other always loses
  • The rise of Tediumreem, the continued silliness of OSP, and the sheer brilliance of Michel Pereira, the only freak athlete in the UFC who uses his power responsibly

Connor and Phil curse Aleksander Rakic for turning to be a REALLY boring version of Thiago Santos, and delve into a little MMA armchair psychology.

  • Styles make fights, but what makes a style?
  • How do Connor's worn out old archetypes translate to wrestling and grappling, or are they entirely different worlds?
  • Phil Mackenzie revives the legendary Fighting Temperament Cheeseblock: https://i.imgur.com/W1P9oNB.png
  • We mourn the final days of Brutal Bob Lawler, and console ourselves by celebrating Neil Magny, a true pro who keeps getting better
