The Break: ESPN's mixed bag, what T.J. Dillashaw really meant, Greg Hardy's odd choice of words

Ever have one of those weeks and/or weekends when, by the time you get to Monday, you can barely remember everything that happened? That’s more or less every week in the world of combat sports, where the realm of the bizarrely newsworthy is pretty much where we live.

Which is why MMAjunkie columnist Ben Fowlkes brings you “The Break” to make sense of what just happened, presented in the time it takes to grab a refill of coffee before the boss notices you’re missing.

This week, it’s a deep dive into UFC on ESPN+ 1, which ushered in the new UFC-ESPN era. And you know what? It’s wasn’t so bad – even with Stephen A. Smith. Also, for the record, T.J. Dillashaw lost even if he thinks he didn’t, though his night might not have been worse than Greg Hardy’s. Plus, why can’t Dana White just come out and tell us the flyweight division is done already? And whoever took Gregor Gillespie’s bags, fess up!

Check out the video above.

We’d like to say the news won’t always be like this, but come on, who are we kidding?
