Heavy Hands

Connor and Phil break down the surprisingly close fight between Robert Whittaker and Darren Till.

  • We're more convinced than ever that Whittaker has lost a step, but we think we also finally understand what bugs him about these last two matchups
  • Shogun and Lil Nog: MMA's version of Zeno's Paradox
  • How about Nathaniel Wood's hands?!
  • Derek Brunson is a perfect test for Edmen Shahbazyan, but more importantly, Connor loves Derek Brunson
  • He also loves Ed Herman and Gerald Meerschaert
  • KEVIN HOLLAND. KEVIN HOLLAND.

  • Could Whittaker have done better against Israel Adesanya? Does it matter?
  • Shogun vs Lil Nog 3000
  • Gustafsson vs Werdum: two men who apparently hate fighting
  • RIP Joe B
  • ...and more!

Connor and Phil break down the incredible action in UFC 251's three title fights, and look forward to the rematch between Deiveson Figueiredo and Joe Benavidez.

  • Jose Aldo came as close to beating Max Holloway as he ever will, and even closer to dying in the Octagon. Thanks Leon!
  • Jorge Masvidal was in better shape than we had expected. It didn't matter
  • Max Holloway is a liar. HE IS A LIAR
  • Could Joe B have won that first Figueiredo fight without the clash of heads?

Connor and Phil sit down to discuss Usman vs Masvidal and the other two title fights set for UFC 251.

  • So it's Masvidal vs Usman, in the end, only now on short notice. Can Masvidal force Usman back, or is he doomed to broken against the fence?
  • Max Holloway approaches his rematch with Alexander Volkanovski with the attitude of a man who has just dreamed his own death. We hate it.
  • Connor finally lets Jose Aldo go, just in time to realize that he might actually beat Petr Yan

  • Sean Woodson is still good, don't listen to Kyle. I'm not crying
  • Mike Perry. That is all.
  • We chat about some legendary fantasy matchups: Aldo vs Cejudo (???), Aldo vs Pettis, Fedor vs Lesnar, GSP vs Silva
