Tim Wheaton and Frazer Krohn sit down to discuss the latest goings-on in the world of MMA. They touch base on UFC 276 after Frazer missed last week’s podcast. They go deep into the problems of eye pokes in MMA, why nothing is being done about them and the troubles they bring. After Sean O’Malley and Pedro Munhoz fought to a no-contest following an eye poke, the guys get heated as to why promotions need to do more to protect their fights, reduce eye injuries and reform the sport.

Is Israel Adesanya wrong for fighting a boring fight? The guys have the answer to that question too off the back of UFC 276.

UFC Vegas 58, Lightweight Division and Alexander Volkanovski

The guys then discuss UFC Vegas 58 where Rafael Fiziev pulled off a huge knockout victory over Rafael dos Anjos in the main event. They ponder what might be next for Fiziev after running a Twitter poll.

The podcast crew then consider the state of the lightweight division, how strong it is and they play matchmaker to work out who might fight who next.

Tim and Frazer then discuss the likelihood of Alexander Volkanovski moving up to lightweight. They give some statistics about his height and reach compared to the rest of the division with shocking results! Questions are asked as to whether he would actually be able to compete at 155lbs and if not, who he should face at 145lbs.

UFC Long Island

UFC Long Island goes down this Saturday and is headlined by Brian Ortega and Yair Rodriguez. The guys discuss how they think that this fight might go down, where each man’s keys to victory lie and what could be next for the winner.

Jack Shore and Ricky Simon are on the menu for the boys to break down after this as it’s a fight that excites fans massively and is certainly going under the radar.
