The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returns tonight, Saturday, June 1st, 2019, with some decent bouts worth catching. The top two fights happening at UFC on ESPN+ 11 are scheduled to take place in the light heavyweight division. The main event features former title challengers, Alexander ‘The Mauler’ Gustafsson and Anthony ‘Lionheart’ Smith, and the co-main event is now set to be Jimi Manuwa vs Aleksandar Rakic after Ilir Latifi was pulled from his scheduled bout against Volkan Oezdemir. Perhaps the best part of this main card offering is that the card takes place midday in the United States, although the event is being held at the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden.
On this episode of the show, Zane Simon & 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.
