    UFC 296 Preview! Round-Up with Paul Felder & Michael Chiesa

    To start off the show, the guys discuss this past Saturday’s UFC Fight Night main event, as bantamweight Song Yadong defeated Chris Gutierrez by unanimous decision. The pair also touch on the light heavyweight co-main event, as Khalil Rountree Jr. defeated Anthony Smith by TKO.

    After that, the duo answer 5 rounds of fan questions.
    1. Do you think that Colby Covington is being underestimated going into this fight?
    2. Do you think Ian Machado Garry is distracted heading into the fight with Vicente Luque?
    3. Is there anyone at welterweight that you would pick straight up to win against Shavkat Rakhmonov right now?
    4. It would be nice to know honest opinions on the Paddy Pimblett vs. Tony Ferguson fight and reasons why it could go either way?
    5. Alexandre Pantoja’s fight with Brandon Moreno is one of the wildest battles I’ve ever seen. Given the fact that at one point he was an Uber driver and a man smoked in his car. I must ask what is the side job that you (Michael Chiesa) or Paul Felder had where a rude customer deserved a knee?

    Then, the duo answer 5 rounds of fan questions.
    1. The most intense staredown in the history of the UFC followed by an amazing display of skill in the main event. What do you think about the stoppage, what’s next for Jiří, is it possible for him to get to a title rematch?

    5. Who would win in a staring contest between Alex Pereira and the booger eating kid from across the street that was always in your business?

    UFC 294 Recap & Is Taylor Swift Dating A UFC Fighter??? Round-Up with Paul Felder & Michael Chiesa

    UFC 294 Recap & Is Taylor Swift Dating A UFC Fighter??? Round-Up with Paul Felder & Michael Chiesa

    Paul Felder and Michael Chiesa are back at it again on this episode of UFC Round-Up after one of the biggest cards of the year in UFC 294!

    To start off the show, the guys give their thoughts and takeaways from this past weekend’s UFC 294 main event, as Islam Makhachev defeated Alexander Volkanovski by first-round knockout to defend his lightweight belt. The guys also discuss the middleweight co-main event, as Khamzat Chimaev beat Kamaru Usman by majority decision, in a fight Usman took on short notice.

    Then, the duo answer 5 rounds of fan questions.
    1. After defending the 155-pound title, should Islam go up to 170 and who can stop him there?
    2. I feel like the biggest story coming out of the weekend has to be the Khamzat situation. Seems like the consensus is that he gassed out after round 1 again and needs another true test at 185 before stepping up to the champ.
    3. One question about the doctor, did they accidentally bring in somebody with a PhD in art history instead of a medical doctor? I’m no surgeon but I’m pretty sure “nobody kicked you in the balls” isn’t on the MCAT® exam.
    4. Which fighter on the current roster do you think would have a chance to pull Taylor Swift and get millions of Swifties to tune into the UFC?
    5. The guys react to the powerful message from Alexander Volkanovski in his UFC 294 post-fight press conference on why he took his short notice fight against Islam Makhachev.

    UFC 294 Preview! Round-Up with Paul Felder & Michael Chiesa

    Paul Felder and Michael Chiesa are back at it again on this episode of UFC Round-Up!

    To start off the show, the guys hit on the short-notice changes in the main and co-main event at UFC 294, which takes place this Saturday in Abu Dhabi. First, the pair start with discussing Alexander Volkanovski stepping in on 12 days notice to fight Islam Makhachev for the lightweight title in the main event in a highly anticipated rematch. Next, the duo break down Kamaru Usman fighting Khamzat Chimaev on short notice in a middleweight bout in the co-main event after Paulo Costa had to withdraw from the fight due to an elbow infection.

    After that, the duo answer 5 rounds of fan questions.
    1. If Alexander Volkanovski takes Islam Makhachev to another competitive 5 rounds and loses, will Volk’s legacy be overshadowed by these 2 losses at lightweight? Does Islam go double champ at welterweight next or is he back at Charles Oliveira?
    2. Who do you think has a better shot at an upset, Alexander Volkanovski or Kamaru Usman?
    3. If the Usman vs. Chimaev winner gets to fight Sean Strickland for the middleweight title next, who should Dricus Du Plessis fight next or should he wait till he gets his title shot?
    4. Do you have access to some production companies to film Justin Gaethje in case Volk wins, knowing he would have to wait that much longer for another title shot? And what do you think he’d break first at his house should that happen?
    5. What’s one movie, album, play or TV show that someone recommended to you that was so bad that the only proper way to process the awfulness of the art was to do this (an angry picture of a cat)?

My favorite dynamic duo

The best thing about a PPV is having the before and after podcast with these two. Your fun chemistry together, wit, superior fight breakdown and knowledge make this my favorite show. Sign me up for when the cooking show starts. This sounds dirty but it's not meant to be… I want to be the meat in your sandwich! LFG❤️‍🔥

You guys are in for a treat today…

One star for clout chasing & misleading fans. Lost a fan & listener. Won’t be coming back. Sorry Paul, cut bait on Chiesa & I’ll listen again

JoeCo199517 ,

Don’t bait fans

Chiesa thinks it’s cool/funny to bait fans about UFC 300.

Don’t waste your time with podcast. Michael is okay with getting your hopes up for nothing
