- Ben Askren’s retirement — ONE Championship titleholder Ben Askren stepped away from MMA after a first-round stoppage of Shinya Aoki last week. Should we admire Askren’s accomplishments, or do we still have to sit and wonder what he would have done in the UFC? Does he come back?
- UFC 218 preview — Max Holloway on Saturday night defends the featherweight title for the first time against the man he took it from this past June, 145-pound great Jose Aldo. Alistair Overeem meets Francis Ngannou in the Detroit co-main event. Eddie Alvarez vs. Justin Gaethje is happening, too!
- Tae Hyun Bang prison sentence — Tae Hyun Bang received 10 months of jail time last week for being involved in a fight-fixing scandal in November 2015. Does the lack of mainstream coverage of this story prove the UFC is not mainstream?
