  1. another example of 2 analysts giving Jones the get out of jail card. Too scared of the UFC repercussions? Its a sad world we live in where justice has been muddied so much we cannot tell the difference between good and evil anymore

  2. I don't understand why people say DC was winning the second fight before he the KO? All judges gave first round to Jones, 2/3 judges gave the second round to DC, but Jones was winning the third round before the KO. Just because you fight going backwards doesn't mean you are loosing.

    Not only that DC is known for his cardio, but lets be honest he was slowing down in the third round, his output dropped, ( just as the first fight) with Jones landing 31 of 52 significant strikes ( 59 %) which is double as much as DC's 5 of 26 ( 19%).

    DC's fighting is not as effective without the wrestling and I don't think he can outwrestle Jones (in mma), quite the opposite if you look at the first fight.

    Thank you for the podcast.

  4. So cool that Karyn and Alan were able to squeeze in one more podcast in the year to react to Jones vs Gus 2. Fight week gave me such a headache cause it felt like they were trying to justify Jon's actions and the fact that there were issues with his test. Dana was commissioned shopping lets be honest. If Nevada had their way, the fight wouldn't have happened at all. Felt for Alex cause they knew darn well he was filming his tour of the Grand Canyon when the shit hit the fan. I think Dana was trying to keep the egg on his face cause there was nobody on standby incase something happened. I thought Anthony Smith was the perfect fighter to be on standby. The fact he made his analyst debut with Karyn and the gang to keep his face out there was amazing and surprising. Not to take away Amanda's success but all of a sudden, Dana thinks she is hot stuff. I mean come on, Cris and Dana have had a volutile relationship. At one point, when Cris called out Ronda Rousey, he called her Wandeli Silva in a dress and accused her of being on drugs. Amanda hasn't been promoted by the UFC really well: UFC 200 vs Miesha Tate, it was supposed to be the co-main event but Jon being an ass pushed it to the main event. UFC 207 vs Ronda, Amanda as the UFC Women's Bantamweight Championship defending for the first time yeah right! Ronda was back. UFC 214 vs Valentina Shevenckho (casual fans have whined that Valentina should have won). It didnt matter who beat Cris, Dana was going to love them cause Cris is only in the UFC just to spite Scott Coker and Bellator. Would Julia Budd be the Bellator Women's Featherweight Champion if Cris was there, no? I thought about why women went down to 135 lbs and avoiding Cris, Cris is a monster and was on a 21 fight unbeaten streak, who would want to face Cris when she is on that roll? With Amanda winning hope Dana and the UFC decide to keep the Womens Featherweight Division around. I hope Cat vs Megan is rolled back. I felt for Cat. This was the first time since 2010, Cat did 3 fights in 1 year due to her personal issues outside the cage. Cat had volunteered to be on standby incase something happened. I know how tough Cat is. She wouldnt just quit a fight she pushed so hard to have. Cat made a statement on the scale. She was 144 lbs, under championship weight.

  5. Oh for some reason I was under the impression that Karyn will be staying with FOX instead of joining ESPN. So glad to hear you'll be working together with Left Hook Larry! Happy New Year guys! Looking forward to 2019!
