MMA Tete-A-Tete: Mir To Strikeforce, UFC 149's PPV Performance, Grading UFC On Fox

Luke Thomas of MMA Fighting and I are back with another installment of the MMA Tete-A-Tete: Coarsening the Discourse. As always if you enjoy this sort of gum flapping, subscribe to the MMA Nation YouTube channel.

Topics after the jump...

Topics discussed:

  • Frank Mir's surprising move to Strikeforce to face Daniel Cormier
    Is this a harbinger of more UFC to Strikeforce jumps to come?
    Why did Mir agree to this fight?
    What's a win mean for Cormer?
  • The UFC 149 PPV performance
    Worst event in years, will it hurt PPV numbers for upcoming events like UFC 150?
    Why making wholesale changes to a card means you can't afford any bad fights.
  • Grading UFC on Fox
    We complain about Shogun vs. Vera.
    We rage against the gods and ask why UFC 150 wasn't cancelled so Edgar vs Henderson 2 could headline the fourth Fox show.
    What does the resignation of the Fox Sports president mean for the UFC/Fox deal
We also struggle with some technical difficulties and I put a graphic up that sits right over my mouth for the whole video.
