  1. Awesome podcast as always. Looking forward to these each and every week. I think the Lightweight Division will be pissed that Conor vs Floyd is happening. Conor knows that the lightweight division is tough and he doesnt want to face them. Also, he is taking advantage of the fact that Rent is due ladies and gentlemen. IMO, Dana might be the voice for having this fight but WME-IMG is so desperate to pay the bills back from spending 4.2 million that they will want to do anything in their power to make sure that happens. As much as I hate Conor, I am nervous for him, cause 5 time UFC Vet Tim Hague passed away on Sunday due to a boxing match lost against Adam Braidwood, in Edmonton, the site of UFC 216. No offense to DC but my dream main event for UFC 214 just got made. Megan Anderson vs Cristiane Justino in my mind to determine the FIRST real UFC Womens Featherweight Championship. I wonder if Germaine's stripping is a message to DJ to fight TJ cause they dont want to sit out TJ for long cause Cody injured his back. Even though, I know Germaine's people think she cant beat Cris even though Germaine spent the majority of her career as Womens Featherweight fighter. Megan is 8-2 on a 4 fight winning streak won the Invicta FC Featherweight Championship in January (but was upgraded to official in March). Megan trains at Glory House MMA in Lee Summit MO that is run by James Krause. I seen a couple of her fights and she is a badass. I think Megan has a chance if she takes Cris out of round 1. Cris was taken out of round 1 in her last fight against Lina Lansberg and her coach Jason Partillo was pissed about that. UFC should have waited for Cris and I think they are realizing that. For those that dont know Germaine vs Holly was made cause the original main event for UFC 208 was to have been Jose vs Max to unify men's featherweight championship but Max's team wanted a full camp. Just quickly on UFC fIght night 111. Holly got her confidence back. She is a badass who ran into tough competition. Alan can beat RDA for sure. RDA needed a decision to beat Tarec Saffedience. Colby Covington probably scored upset of the night over 7. Dong Hyun Kim. Fight of the night was Ulka Sasaki vs Justin Scoggins and Holly Holm and Li Jingang got performance of the night.

  2. I have to believe after the Holly fight in which she didn't win in my opinion and you know having eyes and all. lol Her confidence in her ability to take shots unquestionably has been diminished, and she is overly concerned with what a Cyborg may potentially do to her "if" Holly who she may have thought was not as good, or tough as she turned out to be in the gifted belt that turned out somehow in her favor.

  3. Always a great podcast. Loved the pics from the past.
    One note on the boxing vs MMA, — even if Conor lands a blow that takes Mayweather down, the fight is paused and the downed fighter has a few seconds to recover. It's not like MMA where you can attack and finish the fight.

  4. They need to make it so people cant turn there back in boxing they have this new Floyd Mayweather andre ward bull shit were they use that stupid shoulder roll but both of them do it so bad that there turning there whole back to the opponent. If they do that shit you should be able to hit them to the back of the head and that would stop people from turning there backs.

  5. As for the fight itself, Megan is a true 145er. She isn't a Bantam moving up. Anderson is 6'2, strong, has KO power, great Muay Tha, poor ground game though, was submitted by Cindy Dandois. But Cris Cyborg equals or overcomes Megan's strengh, is faster, well rounded in stand up or on the ground (BJJ, Judo, Wrestling) and a killer.

  6. I think McGregor will win 2 or 3 rounds. Maybe the first 3. When Mayweather tries to hug he will use his grappling experience to win that battle, maybe even finish Mayweather early which is his best chance. But then Mayweather will have his timing, Conor will start to gas and Mayweather who is in my opinion faster, will either finish Conor or win by decision. Having that said i hope i am so wrong when i say Conor will gas and Mayweather will finish him or win. I hope Conor knocks him out. Conor is a good person, Floyd is a douchebag. I hope all the people who say he has no chance give him the respect he deserves. And don´t say he has 0% chance. How many times throughout the years have we seen the best fighters in he world lose to guys who were less talented or skilled? There are so many factors that come into play that anything can happen. The best more skilled fighter can understimate their opponent, be out of shape, have an injury, personnal problems, can dodge left when he should have dodged right and it´s night night. Anyone, i don´t care who it is, anyone who gets hit right or with a shot they don´t see coming can get knocked out.

  7. Karyn this is old news! I really wish you would put more effort back into this channel. I use to turn to your interviews above everyone else to listen to what fighters had to say. Your in studio a lot. Which is fine I guess. I just miss your shorter segment pieces. I guess it makes sense why fox scooped you up. Your the best at what you did.
