It is Spooky Szn, people, and with that comes Trick or Treat. The UFC has responded with treating fans by spoiling us with putting on bigger PPV shows to wrap up another great year of MMA.
We crunched the numbers in the Untitled MMA SUPER-COMPUTER (not really, we don’t even have one of those), and simulated a UFC Lightweight Grand Prix…
In a huge week of fight announcements and withdrawals, one that stood out to me was that Derrick Lewis got a long-awaited title shot against Heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier. Truly, this is such a Derrick Lewis way to get a shot, and we will explain why, but I just want to say that Derrick Lewis is getting what he deserves.

UFC 229 is upon us, and our picks are in!
UFC 229 is this weekend, and the main event is one for the ages: Conor McGregor returns to the UFC for the first time in nearly 2 years to face Khabib Nurmagomedov. There gave been claims of mauling and knockouts from both sides of the exchange, and today we are going to give a scenario where Khabib beats Conor and retains his UFC Lightweight belt.
In this episode we discuss Bellator 206, Bellator/DAZN, Jon Jones vs DC at Heavyweight, USADA, and we break down (and make our picks for) UFC 229.

Happy Conor Week, friends. It is about time there is a UFC card and Conor McGregor is headlining. It is long overdue. Now, with that, he is not the sole story that is worth mentioning this weekend. Here, we are going to mention some other noteworthy storylines.
Our picks are in for Bellator’s biggest show of the year so far!
With a strong Bellator card this weekend on a UFC off weekend in the lead up to the much anticipated return of Conor McGregor at UFC 229, is Bellator trying to get a bump in views with Conor McGregor and MMA being in the news?
In this episode we discuss UFC Sao Paulo, Jon Jones & USADA, Alexander Gustafsson, UFC 230, a 165 lb division, the state of Bellator, and we make our picks for Bellator 206.
Our picks are in for UFC Sao Paulo!
This weekend, the UFC returns to Sao Paulo, and it is headlined by Thiago Santos and “Ya Boy” Eryk Anders (all-time nickname) in their Light Heavyweight debuts. Today, I preview that fight and give my prediction.
In a very unsurprising turn of events, USADA gave Jon Jones a 15 month suspension for his failed drug test. When applied retroactively, he will be able to compete as early as October 28th of this year, right before the MSG card.

This weekend, the UFC makes their long-awaited maiden voyage to Russia, home of current lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov. The card is far from great; it is actually kind of bad. So bad in fact that the UFC is only putting it on Fight Pass, which severely limits the reach the card will get beyond those in attendance and extremely hardcore fans. So, with a card that is lacking in big fights, is this a sign of how much the UFC is willing to invest in Russia?
In this episode we discuss UFC 228, Tyron Woodley as the Welterweight GOAT, Valentina Shevchenko and the 125 lb title, some UFC 229 & 230 talk, and more!
Our picks are in for UFC 228!
After Gaethje proved me wrong and destroyed James Vick at UFC Lincoln, he needs a step up to see how high he can climb in the division after two stumbles. Kevin Lee may be his next opponent.
Our picks are in for UFC Lincoln!
This weekend, James Vick FINALLY has the chance to prove himself against an elite guy at 155 after a rather disappointing result against Beneil Dariush in 2016. "The Texecutioner" (an all-time good MMA name) is facing Justin Gaethje, and although he's on a two fight skid currently, he's a guy that will be around the top as long as he is in the organization.
Hear me out, kids, because this isn’t a bad situation (almost) no matter how it plays out. And I am not by any means a Greg Hardy advocate, but this could be smart business, and the UFC is in the business of making money..
If you know nothing else about me as a person, I am a HUGE advocate of Mr. McGregor. He is among my idols, he changed the game, and has called his shots up until now, including this monumental bout.
