  2. Trevor found his footing once the night rolled along. I thought he did a good job. Stephen A, I agree with Alan, its a hard sell. I remember Curt Menifee would take over the main cards on Fox when Karyn would step away. I think the fact too it was confusing cause you would have to go here for the preshow, there for the pre fights, here for the pre fights on TV that were delayed 10 minutes due to Duke and Virginia almost going into overtime. It was ring around the damn rosey. TJ was whining backstage cause as Dana was talking to Aaron Bronester, the sound and video is on his twitter you can hear TJ said its fucking bullshit and Dana agreed. There was a narrative that Dana wanted to tell. TJ was sent to kill the division plain and simple. If that was Henry complaing too bad so sad.

  3. If u didn't have bad guy in alex than cowboy victory didn't feel like it did so understand the dynamics rda was hero against Colby in Chicago in other fight people didn't care as much of his fighting like chael said punch nd kicks r not enough we need storytelling in mma cowboy was the most popular fighter in Brooklyn because alex play his role perfect love the podcast

  4. I disagree with the Rua vs Glover match up. It does make a lot of sense rankings wise. And is a good and interesting match up. I certainly wouldn’t mind that fight happening. Rua has been looking good beating these young guys.
