It's another episode of Heavy Hands, and another great fight card to break down. This week Connor and Pat are looking into the best fights from UFC on Fox 15, including Lyoto Machida vs Luke Rockhold, Cub Swanson vs Max Holloway, and Beneil Dariush vs Jim Miller.

After a brief foray into the Heavy Bag to talk about gameplans (and fighters who claim not to use them), your hosts carry that topic into the fight discussions, coming up with on-the-spot strategies for the three big matchups named above. How does Machida beat Rockhold? How can Holloway thwart Swanson? And is it possible that Beneil Dariush can squeeze the life out of submission-master Jim Miller?

All of that and more on this episode of Heavy Hands.
