I would love love LOVE for Joanna to fight Zhang in poland. Zhang got to fight for the belt in her home when she was the challenger so would be awesome if her first defense was in the challengers home. And Joanna is too tight with Dana and the UFC to not be granted the immediate shot (if healthy). My vote is always for her.
How can Alan Jouban comment on the Gifford fight which he has not seen? He still made good points but I would like to know his opinion on this specific fight. I personally saw no specific spot where a ref would typically stop an MMA fight….the closest was the end of the first round but that still did not look like a normal stoppage point. To me this fight should have been stopped by Gifford's corner after the second round. What is the corner there for if not this?Not sure about Karyn's points – specifically Davis feeling bad. If we remember Davis actually thanked the ref specifically in his post fight interview. Why? Because he was given the opportunity to continue looking great and KO Gifford in highlight real fashion. Yes, Davis said "thanks ref" when asked by Bisping if he thought the fight should have been stopped.Keep up the good work MMA HEAT.
I seriously cannot even pay attention to what is being said. Kinda distracted.

Weidman is fighting dominck Reyes not Johnny walker LOL
You are so right! I was talking to Corey Anderson about his fight with Johnny (the interview is up here on my channel) and I fully admit to getting confused! No excuse, but sometimes my head spins trying to remember it all every week!
is joubain really that stupid? So the UFC is doing abt all to get the asian market….but joubain thinks those fighters arent…what? seen? by who? omg..cte
I'm somewhat cynical as to that 'badass JJ' thing. She only switches that on when she feels like she can; Waterson being so gosh-durned NICE means she can act out however she likes with no push-back. There was none of that versus V-Shev, 'cos she knew better. My thoughts on the title picture: https://twitter.com/StaminaMC/status/1183809920568909824
I'm glad Joanna won. It was a great fight.
For me it depends on Tatiana's recovery from that neck stinger. If she can come back early next the Zhang vs. Tabib. If Suarez can't come back till later in 2020 then have Zhang fight Joanna. I'm fine with either although what I really want to see is Thug Rose make a return. Thug Rose vs. anyone but Joanna works for me. I can't stand to see JJ lose badly again.
Ok start watching the fights dude or ur going to loose listeners. Because Karyn needs someone that is going to watch the fights and talk about them. It’s like me having a podcast about buying and selling houses and I have never bought a house or Anything
It wouldn't be an episode of MMA Heat without Alan saying "I didn't watch that fight".
Oi Karyn… te amo muito…Deus abençoe imensamente. (João Pessoa, Paraiba, Brasil )
