The format of the show is to review the prior weeks’ picks & then to announce each fight on the upcoming card, quickly commenting on which fights are hot, and which fights are not, based on relevancy to the sport as a whole. This format of “Caring” or “Not Caring” about each bout is geared to our listeners who consider themselves to be “Casual MMA Fans”. This effort is in the hopes that we can steer you towards fights that affect rankings, title contention, have significant meaning, or are sure to be “must see tv” fights; therefore saving you the tedium of watching every fight on every card – or perhaps missing out on something you might have otherwise skipped.

UFC 270 REACTIONS — 1:21

Overall, this now 11-bout card saw five exhilarating first round finishes, three exciting KO/TKO’s, two sweet submissions, and six hard-fought decisions, including our two title fights. Rounding things out, two fighters were awarded for putting forth POTN efforts: Said Nurmagomedov, and Vanessa Demopoulos; FOTN honors went to Brandon Moreno vs. Deiveson Figueiredo.
