The MMA Vivisection: 2021 UFC rewind

New, 1 comment

Zane Simon & Boxing Busch are using this UFC off-week to take a look back at their main event/title fight picks from the year so far, what they got right, and what they got really really wrong.

Normally our off-weeks from the UFC’s ever aggressive event schedule mean it’s time for an episode of the MMA Depressed-us. Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, we just couldn’t make that show happen this time around.

Instead, Connor & Zane are here for a redux of the MMA Vivisection. Looking over this year’s main event UFC fights, including Ngannou vs. Miocic 2, Usman vs. Burns, McGregor vs. Poirier 2, and Holloway vs. Kattar, among many more. Thrill as we ruminate over our few successes, and numerous failures.

For those of you following the picks made on the show, we started tracking them with the July 13th, 2020 Vivisections for ‘Kattar vs. Ige’... Standings for our last event, UFC 260: Zane & Connor both went 6 out of the 9 bouts we were left with.

So far, here are the overall standings:
Zane is now 241/373 and Connor is now 229/373
