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.
This time we actually broadcast it live as a Google Hangout. Next week we'll give you guys a heads up so you can ask questions but we wanted to do a trial run first.
Topics after the jump...
In this episode we talk about:
- Anderson Silva's refusal to face Chris Weidman or Jon Jones in his next fight and his stated desire to face Georges St. Pierre or Nick Diaz instead. Is this a good or bad thing? Who should he be fighting?
- UFC on Fox 4: It's ratings prospects (we both make predictions), the main card fights (with more predictions), what happened to Brandon Vera?, possibilities for the next UFC on Fox card -- should Jon Jones fight on Fox? JDS vs Cain?
- We look at Dave Meltzer's Google-search based analysis of the biggest stars in combat sports and what the UFC can do to build more stars.
As always let us know what you think and enjoy!
