kreed82 says:

2000? I thought anderson debut was 97

kreed82 says:

Lol this fight between adesaya and silva will be a dud quote me

Ps i hate the way thomas always tries to shoehorn gsp into goat talks. He came out of retirement to face a MW because it was bisbing who wore the title. As soon as whitaker was ready he developed some life threatening condition. A condition which would be healed if ufc sceduled he and mcgregor i bet. Goat for going 5 rounds with every elite WW what a joke

ray hudson on bein sports for soccer – one of the best all time commentators:

Grape says:

The interim title made Colby Covington next in line, unless injured, otherwise it’s b.s..

thelonghornguy says:

I think it's a great idea to have Phoenix on the show. I've noticed more diverse discussions, not just bc she's female, but her logical & sometimes alternative viewpoints, she's not afraid to voice her opinion.

Vince Marino says:

LAVER…..Like WAIVER or FAVOR….Rod Laver was only the greatest tennis player of his era…won the grand slam twice…read up Luke.

Grape says:

Luke Thomas Mispronouncing Rod Laver’s name was rude…top Tennis player in the world for 6 years and 11 Grand Slam Titles warrants saying his name correctly.

ablock3002 says:

love when octomom is on

Grape says:

How does beating Anderson Silva get anyone a title shot? Silva has only won 1 fight in the last 5 years. Is he even in the top 10?

PhatBottiTuning says:

Why doesn't someone cut out the 60 seconds of dead air that has been on every MMA beat video since the beginning of time?

trent d says:

Israel would destroy Till.

NotoriousVC says:

The A+ Team.

Miles C says:

Phoenix I love you

diesel dave says:

MOAR PHOENIX – Let her run this show.

Bobby Annable says:

I need Phoenix to put me in a head and arm triangle so I can get a whiff

Oisin O' Regan says:

UFC 234 is a very weak card over all….the main and co main are intriguing match ups and worthy fights, but after its literally like they threw together 10 fights to make up the card, banking on the top 2 fights being enough to draw people in

Josh Loreto says:

Danny the goat

Mikey B says:

Summer games for me is diving, winter games is skeleton


have helwani on as a guest please

medscommajay says:

Demetrious Johnson went to the devastated Ray Borg after he defeated him and congratulated him on becoming a father, and told him that being a father was the best thing ever. That always resonated with me as a sign of great sportsmanship.

Gustavo Jauregui says:

I always respect Chuck's input

Ben Livingston says:

Its about the first UFC ppv with full espn coverage.

Mikey B says:

Regarding that word "owed" I have an example where it did make sense. Remember when Whittaker told Bisping he owed him a fight? That's a real example of where a fighter actually was owed.
