MMA Junkie Radio #2992: Unpacking UFC on ESPN+ 19, PFL Playoffs 1, more

Monday’s edition of MMA Junkie Radio with hosts “Gorgeous” George and “Goze” is here!

On Episode 2,992 of the podcast, the guys unpack a busy weekend in MMA, first and foremost the results of UFC on ESPN+ 19, as well as PFL Playoffs 1, Bellator Europe 5/230, and Rizin FF 19.

The rundown

  • Yes, Joanna Jedrzejczyk won by unanimous decision over Michelle Waterson nearly by clean sweep on the judges’ scorecards, but she certainly didn’t run away with it. The UFC on ESPN+ 19 headliner is hard to describe, actually.
  • As for Jedrzejczyk’s fight with the scale prior to the matchup, what was that all about anyway?
  • It turns out Cub Swanson wasn’t just a stepping stone for Kron Gracie after all. (No, Kron, you didn’t win.)
  • James Vick and Thomas Gifford were the victims of absolutely brutal knockouts. As far as Vick goes, that’s four losses in a row for a guy who was on the rise not long ago. Where does he go from here?
  • Deiveson Figueiredo submitted Tim Elliott with a guillotine choke, but did he hold it for too long? Elliott sure seemed to think so.
  • Does Henry Cejudo need to relinquish one of his UFC titles, or can he defend them both?
  • 2019 PFL, Playoffs 1 was a night that certainly didn’t unfold the way everyone thought it would. You mean we’re NOT getting Kayla Harrison vs. Sarah Kaufman in the women’s lightweight final???
  • At Bellator Europe 5/230, Melvin Manhoef and Alessio Sakara proved they have plenty more to give.
