Bloody Elbow 2.0 | Anton Tabuena

Welcome to ‘The Mookie & Crookie Show’, a spinoff of ‘The Level Change Podcast’ that goes a little more in-depth on major combat sports news, as well as takes a humorous look at the crazy world of combat sports social media. The show is hosted by Mookie Alexander and Stephie Haynes and airs every Tuesday.

Here is a summary of the topics discussed or questions asked, complete with the time stamps for when each interview or special segment begins. As always, we hope you enjoy listening to the show as much as we enjoyed recording it.


UFC 256 recap: Epic flyweight title fight, Do Bronx dominates El Cucuy, Kevin Holland is for real – 2:06

Q&A with John Nash – 20:25

There was a recent development in the UFC antitrust lawsuit. Brief us on what is going on with the suit.

*Joint list: what is it?

*What kind of unsealed docs might we expect?

Some fighters were excluded from this class, specifically, Nate Quarry. Was there anyone else excluded and why was Nate?

Dana came out and said the UFC has had its best year ever, that they’ve broken records. How have they thrived when other promotions are clearly struggling?

Cub Swanson hopes for long term insurance for fighters. Is that a pipe dream or could it be reality?

Anthony Johnson recently signed with Bellator after what was termed a “mutual parting of ways.” I’d imagine it all came down to the money. Do you think Bellator can offer more than the UFC?

At first, everyone was passing on signing Yoel Romero, but now there is renewed interest from several promotions. Who can actually afford him? (recorded before the news of Yoel’s Bellator signing)

Bellator and DAZN – What’s up with that relationship?

Joshua vs Fury seems like the fight to make. Do you foresee any major hiccups in making that blockbuster?

Thoughts on Zuffa Boxing never getting off the ground and whether Dana actually expected to amass all the top talent like he does in MMA

Warner Brothers/HBO Max Deal and how it could affect people in your line of work? (note: unions)
