The MMA Tete-A-Tete: Welcoming Dakota Cochrane To The UFC, Tate Vs. Rousey, UFC On FX 2, More

Luke Thomas of MMAFighting.com and I are back with another installment of the MMA Tete-A-Tete: Coarsening The Discourse where we wear silly hats and flap our gums about cage fighting.

In this installment we cover:

  • Dakota Cochrane and what the UFC's acceptance of him means
    Luke and I agree that this is a big step forward for the UFC and that letting the kid fight is the right thing to do. We also blush and giggle like school girls.
  • UFC 144 wrap-up
    We look back at the UFC's return to Japan and IIRC I ranted at some length about something tangential.
  • Tate vs. Rousey: ok to market on sexuality?
    Luke and I both say.....YUS!
  • UFC on FX: future of flyweights
    We look at the UFC flyweight tournament and talk about the hard road the division will have going forward and breaking through to a UFC fanbase that has shown a marked reluctance to follow the little fellows.

Also my video feed freezes with about 5 minutes left so I'm especially ugly in this one. At some point a Constable knocks on my door looking for my landlady. Enjoy!
