  1. AJ FTW putting bullies on notice! Can't wait for the celebration podcast. Baloney that you didn't get a post fight interview in the octagon, but I hope you get that ranking. p.s. KB were you going to tell Alan the mio kinda looks like pee?

  2. Good podcast as usual. LOL! I think TMZ probably wanted to talk to Alan about his modeling work and or promote his fight with Mike or the latest in the Floyd/Conor crap. Whatever! Glad to see Alan in that mentality. Please take care of Mike, he needs some humbling. He should be happy that he is kicking off the FOX Main card. Doesnt matter where u put Alan, he kicks butt whatever. Their fight will be interesting cause I predict the winner to get a top 15 and possibly be ranked when they are updated.

    round 1: This card kicked butt. I think at first UFC didnt have confidence in Max and Anthony. Why else did they put that fake title on the line. Dana was talking to Max about Brooklyn. I think Max is worried that Jose will put out, as he has that reputation of backpedaling. There has to be something going on behind the scenes of Rousforpts. Why did Anthony get down to 146.5 and say screw it and be back up to 148. Was his team scared of Max or didnt give a damn cause of the "interim' tag.

    Round 2: What to say about Cub vs Choi but damn? felt like a fire was lit under both guys especially with the backstory of how this card went into a promotional nightmare. Fight of the year. Would like to see these guys go 5 rounds in the future. Will be interesting to see what happens with Cub next. He told Megan Olivi he would like to take time off and see what happens when Jose vs Max happens. Hes on a 3 fight win streak. Could we be talking about Cub challenging for the Men's UFC Featherweight Championship in 2017.

    Round 3: I think we have seen a new cowboy since his team decided he should be fighting at Welterweight. I think the lost to RDA was probably the best thing that happened. He only has to cut I believe dont quote me but 5 lbs cause he walks around at 175 lbs. Tyron was hilarious at the table with KB and The Count, I thought he was going to shit himself cause Cowboy could be a 3rd threat for his title in the near future. Crazy he wants to be on UFC on Fox 23 Valentina Shevencko vs Julianna Pena, to be honest I could see it as we dont have a co main really.

    Round 4: UFC Albany was a good card. The pacing was incredible. I think the fans booed Black Beast's fight cause we have been spoiled to believe that the heavyweights dont go past the first round. This went to a 4th round. It showed that Black Beast has the stamina to go 5 rounds. Although everything the commission was pulling probably got to Derrick. MMAfighting.com is reporting that fighters were sent to the hospital even if you needed just stiches. I think they were over cautios due to the lawsuit of the russian boxer who was in a coma back in 2013 and has brain damage. Some of the fighters didnt get a chance to change. They didnt even have their wallets or phones. It was hell. For 1 fighter, Ryan Janes, he didnt get out of the hospital under the card wrapped and he was the 2nd fighter.

  3. You are correct in that Aldo has gone through many of the contenders, but he has lost late in his career as Champion while Max lost early in his against a guy who starched him in a baker's dozen. Max has great stamina, is always making the fight, figures people out, and actually finishes his opponents unlike Aldo. You are seeming to put Max in the same category as Cerrone when he has never even fought for the title and lost miserably "with all due respect to the man Cerrone" The man has not lost against anyone in what is the longest? win streak in the UFC. I feel completely confident Max would/could defeat Edgar and the others, but not only that possibly finish all of them if not win clearly unlike Aldo who lost to a guy Max went all the rounds with when he was but a pup in the game. I feel great saying this as not only would I like Max to win between the two as he is much more enjoyable to watch all around including outside the cage, but legitimately see him out fighting Aldo in their upcoming bout.
