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 MMA Junkie 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, we’re in awe of the two interim title fights at UFC 236. We’re not sure what we did to deserve 10 rounds of Dustin Poirier vs. Max Holloway and Israel Adesanya vs. Kelvin Gastelum, but we are so, so grateful. Also, did T.J. Dillashaw really go rogue in taking EPO on his own?
Watch the video above.
We’d like to say the news won’t always be like this, but come on, who are we kidding?
