My favourite part about Monday’s

As a young female I am always made fun of for watching MMA and people don’t take me seriously. Your show welcomes me every Monday and Wednesday and makes me feel apart of the action as well as the community. You guys are opinionated and hilarious, offering interesting insights from both fighter and journalist perspective. Thank you!

Helwani has Changed

I feel since Helwani has moved to ESPN, he hasn’t been the same man...he used to fight for the story and talk about controversial issues in the sport. Both DC & Helwani have to be more objective when talking about the UFC.

Getting too corporate

As someone who exited the media industry, I see what is happening to this show and it's typical. Not only is the sound getting worse but the shackles of time mean there is a lack of freestyle... I love you guys but get it together...
