Our compilation show is a deep dive with host, Trent Reinsmith, into the bigger news and goings on in MMA, both inside and outside the cage; presented with a critical, unbiased eye.
Here is some detail on what’s going on here... the “regular” ‘C’mon Now MMA Podcast’ is a daily podcast of varying lengths, which can be found here: cmonnow.substack.com/. This show, however, is a compilation of some of the best topics covered on the daily show over the past week.
This week’s “Best of” edition topics include:
- What is going on at the UFC Apex as far as positive COVID-19 tests?
- Could someone like Jack Hermansson be in danger of being released by the UFC?
- What Dana White left out when he discussed the release of Yoel Romero and get ready for more watered down UFC cards in 2021.
- I don’t care about the farce that is Mayweather vs. Paul.
- If there’s one thing I would encourage fighters to band together about, it would be being bullied into taking long UFC contracts. Try to force shorter deals, maybe 2-3 fights, so you can negotiate or renegotiate every year or so.
- It’s the rare MMA good guy story as PFL tournament winner, Emiliano Sordi uses his $1 million to feed his community during pandemic.
- Dana White might be a good president, but it seems as if he is a terrible leader and that could cost the UFC big time. White needs to trust the UFC’s leadership group and allow them to succeed.
- If Dana White wants to protect the legends of the sport from themselves, the UFC should pay them enough so they can retire.
- Francis Ngannou is not happy, but is that his own fault?
- One takeaway from UFC 255 was that Joe Rogan has overstayed his time as the color commentator. He has become a distraction and he should go.
