Monday’s edition of MMA Junkie Radio with hosts “Gorgeous” George and “Goze” is here!
Covered in Episode 2,982 of the podcast, the boys look back at a big Saturday that featured both UFC 242 and Bellator 226; talk more on Cris Cyborg after her comments at Bellator 226; discuss Khabib Nurmagomedov as a possible “GOAT”; and much more:
- UFC 242 recap with a monumental win for Nurmagomedov over Dustin Poirier.
- Bellator 226 recap with the featherweight tournament’s opening round and an anti-climactic finish with a no contest in the heavyweight title fight between champ Ryan Bader and Cheick Kongo.
- Was Bader’s eye poke on Kongo really an eye poke? Bader doesn’t think so.
- Is Nurmagomedov the greatest lightweight in MMA history? And is he on his way to being the best fighter of all time?
- Cyborg made her first official Bellator appearance – and wasn’t shy about taking some more shots at UFC president Dana White.
- Poirier wasn’t successful at UFC 242, but he got a lot of support for his charitable work, including from Nurmagomedov and White.
