On the 23rd. of March, 2019, the UFC put on an event in Nashville, Tennessee, USA – UFC Fight Night 148, UFC on ESPN+ 6. Welterweight Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson faced off with Anthony ‘Showtime’ Pettis as the headliner of a fight card that was overall rather lackluster. However, there were some moments that are worth talking about.
The co-main consisted of Heavyweights Curtis ‘Razor’ Blaydes who last fought Francis Ngannou in a rematch on 24, November, 2018, where he lost via TKO early in the first round, versus Justin ‘Big Pretty’ Willis who won his last bout via unanimous decision, which was against Mark Hunt December 2, 2018.
On this episode of the show, Zane Simon and Eddie Mercado of The 6th Round podcast join Flyin’ Brian J to discuss the nights violence and nonsensical post-fight antics.
This post-fight show is aimed at recapping all of the action from this event with the live viewer serving as the co-host. We go over post-fight ratings, talk about technique, discuss WTF moments from the card, and give out pretend bonuses.
