Kid Nate and Dallas Winston are back with another iteration of MMA Tete-A-Tete: Coarsening the Discourse, this time speculating how the Bellator champions -- Pat Curran, Michael Chandler, Ben Askren, Emanuel Newton -- and top lightweight Eddie Alvarez would fare in the Octagon, and also reviewing the highs, lows and standout moments from last weekends UFC Fight Night: Shogun vs. Sonnen fight card.
Was Uriah Hall's loss to John Howard, who more than triples Hall's experience in the UFC, against stout competition and overall, really an upset? Was Conor McGregor's win over Max Holloway substandard? What's the score with Alistair Overeem, who's suffered back to back TKO losses in fights he handily dominated early? Is Chael Sonnen a totally different technician nowadays or has Mauricio Rua been robbed of his physical abilities? If Dallas Winston were to captain a Hug Booth ... would you get in line? These pivotal questions about MMA and mankind in general are addressed in our signature awkward and bumbling style.
