I Don't Like Mondays
NOT THE PUBLIC PODCASTS
You smell that? That's the smell of victory, a Chris Weidman victory. The former Middleweight found a way to exorcise his demons rallying over Kelvin Gastellum at UFC Fight Night: Long Island. But what's got Rhys fired up is the big one: UFC 214. The grudge match to end all grudge matches. Jon Jones v. Daniel Cormier, Volume II.
Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather went on a four-city World Tour and the Earth managed to stay intact. The tour had it's ups and it's downs, but did it manage to sell the fight? Rhys also tackles the recent card in Glasgow (FREEEEDOOOOOM!) and the card this weekend in Long Island.
Two UFC cards in two days had the potential for a glorious weekend. Instead, we get a card-breaking case of sinusustitututs. Ok, we also got Justin Gaethje, destroyer of worlds, and the 40-year-old who most makes you ashamed of your own athleticism, Yoel Romero, squaring off against Bobby The Reaper Knuckles (a.k.a. Robert Whitaker). All in all, an up-and-down weekend in the world of MMA. But that's kind of the way we like it.
