    HOAM | Khamzat Chimaev Hinting Move To 185 — Is That the Right Decision?

    Khamzat Chimaev is teasing a return to the middleweight division after the massive weight miss that led to the top of the UFC 279 lineup being shuffled around. Since it was the first time Chimaev has ever missed weight, is it the right decision for him to make the move up now?
    On an all-new edition of Heck of a Morning, MMA Fighting's Mike Heck reacts to Chimaev's "185" tweet, a potential matchup with Paulo Costa, and if that be his next opponent should Chimaev want to return before the end of the year. Additionally, listener questions include the many roles the staff has at MMA Fighting, Bellator Dublin, Yoel Romero's future if he defeats Melvin Manhoef, the top fights to show newer fans, what the most intriguing fights are for the remainder of the year that are on the books, Raul Rosas Jr. and Bo Nickal's potential UFC debut opponents, and more.
    You can listen live to Heck of a Morning Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 10 a.m. ET on the MMA Fighting Twitter Spaces.

    DAMN! They Were Good | Celebrating The Career Of Jose Aldo, 'The King of Rio' And The Featherweight GOAT

    DAMN! They Were Good | Celebrating The Career Of Jose Aldo, 'The King of Rio' And The Featherweight GOAT

    DAMN! They Were Good celebrates the careers of the most exciting and influential fighters in MMA history, and this episode, we are covering the career of one of the greatest fighters of all time, Jose Aldo.
    During his 18-year career, Aldo was the undisputed featherweight champion of the world for 2,405 days — second most all-time behind only the great Anderson Silva — and amassed an incredible nine title defenses. The former UFC and WEC featherweight champion’s career spanned multiple eras, establishing him as one of the all-time greats even if he had chosen to retire after UFC 200, as it was rumored he might. Instead, Aldo continued fighting and dropped down to the bantamweight division where he remained a top contender until his retirement this past weekend.
    Host Jed Meshew is joined by Shaheen Al-Shatti, Guilherme Cruz, Alexander K. Lee, and Steven Marrocco to remember one of the most important careers in MMA history.
