The MMA Prospectus: UFC Nashville performers, good camps, & the LW struggle

New, 7 comments

Zane Simon & T.P. Grant of http://www.bloodyelbow.com/ are back to give you another episode of the MMA prospectus focusing on the great performances from UFC Nashville (I see you Benil Dariush, Ray Borg, Jonathan Wilson, & Scott Holtzman). We're also going to be talking about Sara McMann and OSP and why a good camp makes all the difference at a certain point, as well as cleaning up some general discussion topics we've hit on recently... maybe.

Well, it may not be fight week, but it's always fight talk week for us. And, surprisingly for a week with no actual fights in it, we've got a lot to talk about. Beneil Dariush, Ray Borg, Jonathan Wilson and more put on a great show for young guns at UFC Fight Night Nashville. While, on the other side Sara McMann and OSP had major setbacks, proving that a small camp can get you all the way to the top 10, but after that things get a whole lot tighter and the cracks really start to show.

We also attempted and succeeded (mostly... kinda) to re-start our discussion on just what it means to be a prospect in each division in the UFC, this week, we're looking at the lightweights and the fighters on the rise at 155 and what characteristics unite them and set them apart form the other weight classes.

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

And you can even find us on SoundCloud and iTunes just in case you needed a new audio track to set your alarm to in the mornings!
