New, comments

Sorry cry babies! John S. Nash + Eugene S. Robinson are back with an all new format for a new edition of the infamous & patented Care/Don’t Care Preview for UFC 231, featuring Max Holloway and Brian Ortega out of Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

It’s time for another of our infamous and patented Care/Don’t Care Preview with your talent: John S. Nash of Show Money of Bloody Elbow, who will be permanently filling in for Nate from here on out, and as usual, Eugene S. Robinson of and author of Fight: Everything You Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You’d Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking.

The guys are trying out an all new format with the show starting this week. We are adding the illustrious Stephie Haynes of The Three Amigos Podcast and The Wonder Twins Power Podcast here at Bloody Elbow as Host of the show. As host, she will play the role of moderator/fact finder/director of fight affairs and announce each fight as we go, as well as introducing an off-topic discussion point; this week’s will be: Was Sofia Coppola the only thing wrong with Godfather 3? and some additional chatter about 1920s movies. - 37:44

We know change is hard, and we have been throwing a lot at you this past month or so, but hopefully this new format with John, Eugene and Steph will be something you can look forward to every fight week on Tuesdays at 2:00 PM CST on SoundCloud, YouTube and iTunes, and right here on Bloody Elbow. Stick with us and keep listening. We appreciate your loyalty.
