    Tyson Fury vs Oleksandr Usyk is more interesting than anything happening in the MMA world right now. But we also talk about Edson Barboza vs Lerone Murphy and some other stuff.

    520 - Welcome to the Big Leages

    Is it too much too soon for Steve Erceg? Probably yes. But maybe not. Anyway, that's the main event of UFC 301.

    519 - And Still...

    The UFC is staging a solid but ultimately meaningless flyweight main event. Meanwhile, boxing has reached new heights of fascinating stupidity.

Smartest, hardest MMA Pod

You’re criminally underrated and under listened to, this is the smartest MMA pod out there. Keep it up or at least find a pill to help keep it up

Good analysis and entertainment

Connor and Phil are both fantastic analysts who do a great job talking about the more meaningful MMA offerings out there, mixing in great humor along the way. Can’t recommend this show enough for anyone interested in “the finer points of face punching.” Five stars.

Can you two shut up already

With all the charisma of the 2nd and 3rd chair tubas in your local high school marching band, these two dyspeptic mouth breathers break down fights and offer fight predictions with an accuracy not seen since Rousey took up boxing. I don’t know what these two look like, but there’s a definite “fat guy and skinny guy” energy to their voices. If this holds true IRL, it might explain why they seem to hate all fighters who look like they get chicks. Since almost all fighters get chicks, the boys here are rarely excited, interested, or complimentary re: their topics of discussion. They will offer a compliment to a retired fighter, but only for the sake of tearing down a current fighter. Usually this takes the form of an absolutely hair brained statement like “Israel Adesanya couldn’t hold a candle to Nate Marquardt in striking” or “Alex volkanovski is a poor man’s Chris leben.” It sucks—it’s not fun to listen to. But occasionally, they’ll hit a “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” topic (e.g. petr Yan fans are annoying) and you’ll find yourself saying “just do this more!” Alas, it’s time for a commercial break, and these two are so pedantic they literally need to explain the concept of Patreon to you. Dammit.
