The format of the show is to review the prior weeks’ picks & then to announce each fight on the upcoming card, quickly commenting on which fights are hot, and which fights are not, based on relevancy to the sport as a whole. This format of “Caring” or “Not Caring” about each bout is geared to our listeners who consider themselves to be “Casual MMA Fans”. This effort is in the hopes that we can steer you towards fights that affect rankings, title contention, have significant meaning, or are sure to be “must see tv” fights; therefore saving you the tedium of watching every fight on every card – or perhaps missing out on something you might have otherwise skipped. ... AND SOMETIMES, LIKE THIS WEEK, THEY STRAY OFF TOPIC INTO POP CULTURE AND FILM.

UFC Vegas 40 REACTIONS – 4:00

Overall, this now 10-bout card saw only one exhilarating first round finish, three impressive KO/TKO’s, two sweet submissions, and five hard-fought decisions including our main event, one split. Rounding things out, bonuses for putting forth POTN efforts went to Jim Miller, Nate Landwehr, Bruno Silva & Danaa Batgerel; FOTN honors went to No One Tonight. We actually have a decent evening of fights to share with you, join us to discuss all the action...
