Connor and Phil break down the incredible action in UFC 251's three title fights, and look forward to the rematch between Deiveson Figueiredo and Joe Benavidez. Jose Aldo came as close to beating Max Holloway as he ever will, and even closer to dying in the Octagon. Thanks Leon! Jorge Masvidal was in better shape than we had expected. It didn't matter Max Holloway is a liar. HE IS A LIAR Could Joe B have won that first Figueiredo fight without the clash of heads?
Connor and Phil sit down to discuss Usman vs Masvidal and the other two title fights set for UFC 251. So it's Masvidal vs Usman, in the end, only now on short notice. Can Masvidal force Usman back, or is he doomed to broken against the fence? Max Holloway approaches his rematch with Alexander Volkanovski with the attitude of a man who has just dreamed his own death. We hate it. Connor finally lets Jose Aldo go, just in time to realize that he might actually beat Petr Yan
Connor and Phil are joined once again by the scourge of the British Isles, Kyle McLachlan, to discuss Hooker vs Poirier and some great matchups we never got to see. Dustin Poirier is not shot, but also, Dan Hooker is not bad Sean Woodson is still good, don't listen to Kyle. I'm not crying Mike Perry. That is all. We chat about some legendary fantasy matchups: Aldo vs Cejudo (???), Aldo vs Pettis, Fedor vs Lesnar, GSP vs Silva
A short discussion of how exactly we expect Poirier to destroy Hooker, and then Connor tenderly consoles his dear friend Phil, who was wrong. Dan Hooker thinks fighters who retire on the stool are marshmallows, which is a position no one asked him to take before stepping into the cage with Dustin Poirier Mike Perry vs concrete Phil has first nice, big cry in a long time. There, there. Josh Emmett can't hurt you. and more!
