It's the fight week to end all fight weeks. With four UFC cards right around the corner, we're doubling up on the Vivisection this week and giving you two cards worth of insight in just one video. Nothing is skipped over or left out when the best analysts in the game put their heads together, also Kid Nate is on hand to keep everything from going way off the rails and get us in on time. It's the best of all worlds, really.

As always, if our Ooyala player isn't working for you, you can watch the whole show over on YouTube. While you're there, give us a "Like" and subscribe to MMANATIONDOTCOM for more Bloody Elbow interviews and analysis.

Oh, and we've got a SoundCloud page and an iTunes account, just in case one of us causes seizures in people with epilepsy (hint: It's Conor).
