You’re the UFC. With your Conor McGregor molded champions losing this weekend, live and in public, if you will, do you need to change your promotional strategy from big mouths to silent but violent? - 1:56

You’re the GOAT GSP. After winning the Middleweight Championship, your coach Freddie Roach wants you to drop down to Welterweight, but UFC Boss Dana White wants Whitaker as your next opponent. Now that you’re the Bull of the Woods, what do you do? - 5:16

You’re the fighter formally known as Joanna Champion. Your crushing defeat to Thug Rose summoned the ghost of Ronda Rousey future to yours. How do you exorcise it? - 12:27

You’re UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson. With GSP snatching the GOAT crown from you, does your legacy demand a fight with UFC Bantamweight Champion TJ Dillashaw….at his weight class? - 17:12
