We have Derek Suboticki in the house to break down the state of MMA as it stands today. Starting out with Strikeforce, we take a look at what the future holds for the promotion, it’s stars, the women’s divisions, and Cris Cyborg. The Melendez / Masvidal event gets disected and critiqued, and we look at the very long list of things that could be done better.
Then it’s onto UFC 141 – Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem, their less than satisfactory random drug testing, who we think will win and who we want to win. Nate Diaz vs Cowboy Cerrone is declared fight of the night before it even happens, and we wonder if spreading talent too thin has resulted in undercards no one gives a shit about. Before wrapping it up we talk about the UFC’s continued fight against piracy including Lorenzo Fertitta’s support of SOPA and what the UFC needs to do to successfully transition into the Internet Age.
Many names are mangled and mispronounced in this 90 minute episode, perfect for listening to on your way home for Christmas.
