This is in my top3 podcasts I don’t have a favourite one so it might be my favourite

Spoilers in the feed!

Great podcast but why put spoilers in the title? I live in the UK and so often can’t watch live. The titles (when I’m subscribed) have ruined a few main events (seems unnecessary). Otherwise good podcast, thank you!

Best MMA Podcast

Big John and Josh have great chemistry and there’s no hidden agendas it’s just straight to MMA talk. Great breakdowns of upcoming fights from all promotions, with a little bit of homer bias for Bellator stuff but overall this is by far the best MMA podcast.
