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.

UFC Vegas 27 Recap:

1. Bruno Silva, who was a -500 favorite gets a POTN bonus. Rob Font does not. And the FOTN? C’mon now.

2. Court McGee gets a win. The benefits of being a “lunchpail” type of fighter and the advice of a 70-year-old widow

3. Chris Barnett doesn’t get the win

4. I have a lot of problems with how Edmen Shahbazyan’s team is handling his (very) young MMA career and I’m going to tell you about it

5. Norma Dumont, Felicia Spencer, Amanda Nunes and what UFC Vegas 27 might tell us about the UFC women’s featherweight division

6. Carla Esparza sends a message to Dana White, but he and the UFC will probably ignore it because the market in China is more profitable for the UFC

7. Rob Font makes the UFC bantamweight division a lot more interesting after dismantling Cody Garbrandt

8. Begging for bonuses is a worse look for the UFC than the promotion thinks

9. Raulian Paiva was taken to the hospital after what sounds like a terrifying weight cut, “…I was passing out and wouldn’t wake back up.”

10. When a fight gets canceled for health reasons, like Yancy Medeiros vs. Damir Hadzovic was at UFC Vegas 27, that’s a bit of a vague reason? No?

More from the Daily C’mon Now MMA Podcast:

1. The Amanda Ribas COVID-19 timeline is a mess. Why did the UFC book a fighter for a bout when they still had COVID-19? Is Angela Hill going to get paid? When did Ribas first test positive? There’s a lot of things to be concerned about here.

2. The 10-8 score in the ‘Chandler vs. Oliveira’ fight had some confused. That confusion remained after the judge read the scoring criteria and explained his reasoning. Fans, commentators and fighters need to understand the scoring has changed from the old days.

3. MMA media shouldn’t provide Joshua Fabia with a soapbox from which to pontificate, but it should challenge him

4. Eugene Bareman is wrong to say Robert Whittaker should go to the back of the line to face Israel Adesanya

5. Is Sean O’Malley getting the Michael Page treatment from the UFC?

6. Daniel Cormier on why Jon Jones shouldn’t get Conor McGregor pay, but should instead get Khabib Nurmagomedov pay - I discuss
