Join us after UFC 288: ‘Sterling vs. Cejudo’ wraps up…

for our 6th Round Post-Fight Show, hosted by resident Bloody Elbow Fight Analysts, Zane Simon and his cohort, Eddie Mercado. The guys will recap all the action that just went down between UFC Bantamweight Champion, Aljamain Sterling and top-contender, Henry Cejudo, complete with hot takes, possible next fights and reactions to the overall UFC 288 event.


We brought the show back to LIVE VIDEO recently — and have a plan on how to keep the train rolling forward. For every Fight Night event, the show will air live on our Bloody Elbow Podcast YouTube Channel (formerly known as: Bloody Elbow Presents Channel). For every PPV event, the show will air live on our Bloody Elbow YouTube Channel (“The Big One”) directly after our all new FREE LIVE stream PPV Watch Parties! Which will debut for UFC 288: Sterling vs Cejudo, Live From The Prudential Center In Newark, New Jersey, on May 6, 2023.


Can’t catch the live events? We’ve got you covered, on Sundays (starting with UFC 288), we will be publishing enhanced video packages of the shows, with added on bonus segments the guys will be recording after the shows usually wrap up. Zane and Eddie have implemented a new ‘numerical star rating system’ for reviewing the bouts on the card during these segments, which is highly entertaining. All you need to do is join us at BloodyElbowPodcast.Substack.com, share your email with us so we can notify you when new shows drop, and pledge your support to our podcast team — so we can keep bringing the shows to you, especially in video.
