UFC 245! USMAN VS COVINGTON DELIVERS! HOLLOWAY BEATEN! NUNEZ TESTED!
4815

Mr. Campbell was up close and personal at UFC 245 as we all witnessed a great card with a fantastic main event which saw the two best welterweights in the world, champ Kamaru Usman and Colby Covington, both known for their wrestling, keep it on the feet for nearly five brutal rounds before the referee stopped the fight with less than a minute to go.  What's next for Usman?  Masvidal?  What makes sense for Covington?  Woodley?  Max Holloway, considered by many to be the GOAT Featherweight, lost his title via decision to Alexander Volkanovski and Amanda Nunez was pushed to five tough rounds but came out victorious against Germaine de Randamie.

In boxing we saw Terence Crawford get tested a bit before stopping Egidijus Kavaliauskas and the amazing Teofimo Lopez winning the Lightweight Title with a 2nd round KO over Ricard Commey...is he ready for Loma?

Thank you to our great listeners for helping this show grow!

JOSHUA RUIZ II, UFC DC, CHARLO KO AND COVINGTON VS USMAN
4427

Anthony Joshua makes about 85 million to box circles around an Andy Ruiz who said he didn't train hard enough and gained too much weight, WHAT?  While we can't say his name properly, Rosenstruik had a controversial and impressive victory over future Hall of Famer, Alistair Overeem at UFC DC.  Jermall Charlo has an impressive KO against Dennis Hogan, but when will he get a big fight?  UFC 245 is upon us and BC is heading out there to cover the event.  Unman vs Covington, who is going to win?  We get you ready for Saturday night!

CONOR IS BACK! CAN RUIZ DO IT AGAIN? KHABIB VS TONY, 5TH TIME A CHARM?
3724

It's the cam before the storm as we are getting prepared for some great Combat action to finish out 2019.  First things first and that is the Conor vs Cowboy fight is official for January 18th at Welterweight.  Should things go Conor's way, it will be interesting to see what's next.  Maybe what is next is the winner of the Khabib vs Ferguson fight, which is being planned for the 5th time in April...hopefully the 5th time is a charm!  Before that big title fight is the December 14th fight for the Welterweight Title between Usman and Covington on December 14th and last...and least is the Tito Ortiz vs Alberto El Patron fight for Combate Americas on December 7th.  Over to boxing where we have the big rematch between Andy Ruiz and Anthony Joshua on December 7th...who knows what will happen there and remember, that fight should start around 4pm eastern.  After that fight we also have Showtime Championship Boxing featuring Middleweight Champ Jermall Charlo defending against Dennis Hogan Saturday night!  Enjoy Donks!

19: WAS KSI VS LOGAN PAUL GOOD FOR BOXING? IS NATE IN OR OUT? DID UFC MOSCOW DELIVER? CONOR AND KHABIB AT IT AGAIN!
4837

KSI beats Logan Paul via split decision in a celebrity fight that did big business for DAZN, but did it help shine a light on boxing?  Did Devin Haney and Billy Joe Saunders squander an opportunity in their performance in front of a larger audience?  UFC Moscow is in the books.  Is Greg Hardy a decent prospect or overrated?  Did Zabit Magomedsharipov show enough to warrant a title shot?  How about that Inoue vs Donaire fight!  That fight has a legitimate shot at fight of the year.  Brian tortures me throughout the show, you don't want to miss it.

EP 10: JUSTIN GAETHJE DOMINATES, CONOR NEXT? FURY SURVIVES AND DEVIN HANEY SHOWS THAT THE FUTURE IS NOW!
4028

Justin Gaethje impresses yet again with 3rdstraight first round stoppage against a game Cowboy.  He has ascended to the upper echelon of the loaded lightweight division, right there with Ferguson and Khabib.  Will Conor McGregor step in to the octogon with such a dangerous opponent?  Michalle Pereira makes a great GIF but isn’t it about winning at the end of the day?  The best showmen back it up in the octagon with wins and they MAKE WEIGHT!  Next up is UFC Mexico City with Jeremy Stephens facing off against the Zombie killer, Yair Rodriguez.

On the boxing front, Tyson Fury had all he could handle with the tough, game Swede, Otto Wallin.  Fury won a decision but with two cuts on his eye totaling 50 stitches, was it worth it?  And finally, once again we learned that Devin Haney is the real deal and at 20 years old is already calling out Lomachenko!
