Zane Simon & T.P. Grant are back to talk about this week's batch of young talent, and most particularly, about a prospect laden UFC card going down this weekend. Most notable this week are Curtis Blaydes, Francis Ngannou, & Marcin Tybura in the UFC. And out of it we have Alexey Kunchenko, Magomed, Ankalaev, Abubakar Vagaev, Vlad Popovskiy and many more.
