UFC Denver: Revenge of the Nerds

7/14/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com UFC Denver is officially in the books and the Fighting Nerds have logged another TKO victory. Jean Silva cut Dober open over his right eye and then targeted it relentlessly until Herb Dean was forced to call in the ringside physician. It was a FOTY contender, easily. At some point, Zane will reluctantly embrace this team. Rose Namajunas showed that ther…

UFC Denver Main Card: Thuggin' Love

7/11/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com The UFC is back to business after a brief, one-week respite. We return with a card on the road, to the mile-high city where Tracy Cortez will be able to let us all know if two days really is enough time to acclimate to that altitude. And Thug Rose will be able to answer the question of where her flyweight ceiling is. MMA Vivisection & 6th Round is a rea…

Jackson-Wink Double Feature

7/4/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com Since this is an off-week for the UFC, you already know what that means—another hilarious episode of The MMA Depressed-us. With the retirements of both Andrei Arlovski and Michelle Waterson-Gomez, the boys figured this would be the perfect subject matter for today’s show. There’s no better way to kick off your 4th of July festivities than with a triple …

UFC 303: All the Changes

6/30/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com UFC 303 came and went like a fart on the wind. After the card was ravaged by injuries, most notoriously by Conor McGregor’s bum pinky toe, it would continue to transform into the unrecognizable mess it became. Midway through the card, Brian Ortega withdrew from his co-main event bout with Diego Lopes. Apparently, his weight cut went a lot worse than any…

UFC 303 Main Card: Magic Man

6/27/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com UFC 303 is here, sans Conor McGregor and Michael Chandler headling. In their place, we get a rematch between the two dynamos known as Alex Pereira and Jiri Prochazka—not a bad replacement at all. As a matter of fact, there’s quite a few matches we like on this card. All in all, it’s a very solid card, and it will be just fine without McGregor. The UFC, …

UFC Riyadh: Saudi 5000

6/22/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com UFC Saudi Arabia is in the books and it provided some very high points among some very mid fights, but Bobby Knuckles is victorious and that is all that matters today. His first-round destruction of Ikram Aliskerov summoned up memories of what got him the belt once upon a time, and it keeps his name forever in the title mix. We are not mad about that! MM…

UFC Riyadh Main Card: Sports-washing Edition

6/20/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com UFC Riyadh is here and while it’s not terrible, it’s nothing to write home about either. But it is infinitely better than the originally planned March card that was ultimately postponed to this weekend. That card was so bad the Saudis sent it back. This current iteration was so much better before it was ravaged by cancellations, some coming within the l…

UFC Vegas 93 Main Card: Warehouse Wars

6/13/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com If you thought UFC might reward you this week for making it through last weekend’s UFC Louisville card, you’ve got another thing coming. If it is even possible, this Apex event is worse than the last one and that’s saying something. You’ll understand when you get to the alternative stats portion.

UFC Louisville: Blue Balls

6/9/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com UFC Louisville is over and if you were pulling for the underdogs on the card, you ended up with a mixed bag. The undercard saw the favorites come away with the most wins, but Dominick Reyes shined bright on the main card with a sensational TKO win over Dustin Jacoby. I know, I know, it’s just unranked Dustin Jacoby, but when you haven’t had a win since …

UFC Louisville Main Card: Spatial Holographic Matrix of Suck

6/6/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com UFC Louisville is such a bad card. It’s like the matchmaking brass threw darts to set the bout sheet. At the top we have a nothingburger middleweight bout—our only ranked fight on an “away card”—between No. 4 ranked Jared Cannonier and No. 7 ranked Nassourdine Imavov. There’s nothing wrong with this fight other than the fact it shouldn’t headline an eve…

UFC 302: Diamond Dogs

6/2/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com Well, UFC 302 is finally over and not a moment too soon. That event was the longest in history and absolutely lackluster to boot. The two fights most were interested in played out in completely opposite fashion. Sean Strickland jabbed his way to a completely forgettable decision that drew numerous boos from the crowd and had social media wishing they’d …

UFC 302 Main Card: No Gillys for Old Men

5/30/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com It’s UFC 302 fight week and perhaps the last hurrah for lightweight living legend Dustin Poirier. It’s hard to believe the longtime fan favorite has been in the promotion for nearly 14 years, the vast majority of his adult life. As Zane so aptly put it, “He’s been fighting his whole adult life. It’s all he knows and he’s very good at it”, fighting is hi…

The MMA Depressed-Us: Road House

5/23/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com Road House was the Little Engine that Could back in 1989, when it became a cult classic. “Pain don’t hurt” became the motto of every wannabe macho man on the planet. And then it got rebooted. They replaced the perfectly cast Patrick Swayze with a too-quick-witted Jake Gyllenhaal and gave the role of the big bad to UFC superstar Conor McGregor and made a…

Forget UFC, Fury vs. Usyk is the show

This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com UFC Vegas 92 is in the books and even though there was plenty of action, it had no hope of keeping anyone’s attention once Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk took center ring in Riyadh. But for the hardcores that stood fast and loyal to the UFC brand, you’ll be rewarded with plenty more cards just like this. MMA Vivisection & 6th Round is a reader-supported p…

This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com Hi. Stephie, the producer here. Just wanted to drop a quick note that this week’s written portion is going to be super brief, consisting of just the bout sheet and the alternative stats. Since I just got in from the airport a couple hours ago, this seemed like the best plan. Hope you all enjoy the shows and have a happy fight weekend. MMA Vivisection & 6…

UFC St. Louis: A very hot night

This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com UFC St. Louis just wrapped and boy oh boy, there were a few jaw-dropping moments and a fighter that was clearly rushed along way too soon. We saw Derrick Lewis score yet another TKO, we got a contender for best fight of the year in Trey Waters vs. Billy Goff, we saw Veronica Hardy notch another win and we saw Robelis Despaigne completely and utterly exp…

UFC St. Louis Main Card: Urban Fervor

5/9/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com UFC St. Louis is here and unsurprisingly, it’s a decent enough card. Why did I say ‘unsurprisingly’? Well, that’s because it’s not being held in the Apex Center. Of course it’s going to be better. Are we getting a fairly meaningless heavyweight main event? You bet your caboose we are. Derrick Lewis will be sharing center stage with Rodrigo Nascimento an…

UFC 301: Fit for a King

5/5/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com UFC 301 has wrapped up a completely weird card. The fights weren’t terrible for the most part, but there were some real headscratcher moments dotted throughout. For starters, the venue never filled to capacity—or anywhere close. As a matter of fact, there were a lot of empty seats in the arena. The pacing was weird too, and there were some odd moments l…

UFC 301: The PPV that isn't really a PPV

5/2/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com UFC 301 is here, and while it’s not a terrible card, it’s certainly not worthy of the PPV moniker, nor the hefty price tag associated with the promotion’s numbered events. There is a title fight resting atop the main card, but it’s not the type of scrap that’s going to encourage new eyeballs to settle on televisions across the world. If anyone but the h…

UFC Vegas 91: Good Card Withdrawal

4/28/2024
This is a free preview of a paid episode. To hear more, visit themmadrawpodcast.substack.com UFC Vegas 91 is thankfully in the books and while it wasn’t a complete dud in practice, the only feeling that seemed universal by the Twitter (I will never call it X) standard was one of apathy. When there are two guys that are both coming off a loss for a main event spot, you just know some trickery is afoot. MMA Vivisection & 6th Round is a reader-supp…
