This week’s topics include the breakdown of and fallout from UFC 189: McGregor vs. Mendes.
In a special roundtable edition of Submission Radio, Tommy Toe Hold and “The Wrestling Observer’s” Dave Meltzer join Kacper and Denis to discuss the grand event that was UFC 189.
The team discuss topics such as Gunnar Nelson vs. Brandon Thatch, if Gunnar can still be a force in the welterweight division, Brandon Thatch being the favourite, Dennis Bermudez vs. Jeremy Stephens, the flying knee KO, what you do with Jeremy next, what the loss means for Dennis and if his title campaign is over, Robbie Lawler vs. Rory MacDonald, Rory almost passing out after the fight, the world picking Rory to win and him never living up to his expectations, if a third fight would make sense, Lawler’s nasty lip cut, if Robbie will be a champion for a long time, Conor McGregor vs. Chad Mendes, Sinead O’Connor’s singing and the live entrances, if and how well Conor passed the ‘wrestler’ test, chad freezing in front of Conor, if Chad’s short camp actually made a difference in the fight, if the fight was stopped early by Herb Dean, if UFC 189 was the UFC’s biggest ever event and if it lived up to the hype.
Also on the show is discussion on the UFC’s new logo and visual presentation, the new PPV intro and music used, Cris Cyborg vs. Ronda Rousey and if the fight will ever happen now that Cyborg will retire in 3 years.
