  2. Awesome podcast as always. Megan Olivi did a good job hosting the panel in the studio. Kenny and Rashad were hilarious. Laura caught up with Brian's coach Rener Gracie for the prefight show on Saturday and he took responsiblity for the fact that every one of Brian's wins were in the 3rd round. Even his win over Mike De La Torre when he debuted at UFC on Fox 12 Robbie Lawler vs Matt Brown that was over turned cause he got caught with droetzarine and did 9 months. It felt like to me Cub entered the fight with a chip on his shoulder cause he felt like he should have been granted the title shot instead of Jose Aldo which was an easy out IMO. Of course Dana wants to resign Cub. I can see Scott Coker trying to get Cub for his featherweight division where the Bellator Featherweight Champion is Patricio Freiere.

    Marlon Moraes vs Aljomain Sterling was a very under rated fight on the card. I think Marlon has finally entered the matchmakers respect. He got a win that should put him in the top 5. Possibly in title talks for 2018 depending on if Jimmie Rivera gets passed John Lineker at UFC 219 Cristiane Cyborg Justino vs Holly Holm. Marlon has won 14 of his last 15 fights. Only hiccup was his UFC debut against Raphael Assauncao.

    Jason Knight didnt look himself. Something was off. I know he lost a tough battle to number 3 Ricardo Lamas in his last outing. Gabriel Beneitz did everything right. It was his night.

    Liz Carmouche vs Alexis Davis was my favorite fight of the night. That could have been fight of the night. I think the fans in the arena knew Liz won cause she did more damage to Alexis. I saw a media scrum Liz did for mmajunkie and she was talking about how she was happy womens flyweight is here cause she was showing up around 129-131 lbs fight week and they werent happy with her. She had to put on weight to make 135.

  3. swanson's pay is 50k+50k…..a total disgrace 4 such a great and entertaining fighter…..of-course dana want's to keep him!…ufc has all the leverage….cub's got a kid on the way…..hope bellator offers him a great deal…..i like the podcast but would be nice to listen to a podcast were the host's are not depending on being on dana's good side…..
