  1. I love luke and chuck but don't like tom. He isn't engaging enough to want to listen to him. The show misses ariel big time

  2. If you only count champions that have successfully defended their belt at least twice – the list of champions looks quite different:

    HW:
    Couture
    Sylvia
    Lesnar
    Valsquez
    Miocic

    LHW:
    Shamrock
    Ortiz
    Couture
    Liddel
    Jones
    Cormier

    MW:
    Franklin
    Silva
    Weidman

    WW:
    Miletich
    Hughes
    St Pierre
    Lawler
    Woodley

    LW:
    Pulver
    Penn
    Edgar
    Henderson

    FW:
    Aldo

    BW:
    Cruz
    Barao
    Dillashaw

    FW:
    Johnson

    Key notes:
    Notice that McGregor isn’t on the list since he never defended any belt and current champions such as Holloway and Whittaker haven’t had enough fights yet because I’m only counting 2-defences and that doesn’t include winning the belt.

    Also, though unrelated, the only person to have won on two different weight-classes on four separate occasions during completely different time-lines is Couture.

    In addition, if we were to only count five or more successful defences than the list drops to only a few names: Ortiz, Jones, Silva, Hughes, St Pierre, Aldo, Johnson.

  3. I'm so in for this new line-up (throw Chuck in there too), although unless Shaun is moving to NYC I assume it's a one-off.

  4. Downgrade if they start talking about soccer, Meanwhile… Ariel is confessing that "I just want to talk MMA"…. yeah.. If I wanted soccer I'd listen to a soccer podcast. Sorry Guys. MMA Media is dying… especially when they move to futbol…. Don't turn into an MMA junkie podcast… Question picked out of individual interest… It may resonate with some but by all means not all… guys.. it's an MMA podcast… focus… you are everywhere here. I like all three personalities, but I don't want to hear three sports guys drinking talking sports… I want MMA thoughts and I believe more resonate with my sentiments. Cheers.
