During their preview of UFC 228, Jason and Daniel will tell you which fights outside of the main event interest them the most and they tell you which betting underdog they believe has the best chance to win. Plus, they will give you their picks for all of the fights and have an discussion on whether or not a loss by Diego Sanchez could lead to Dana White asking him to retire.

Following the UFC 228 preview, the guys answer a listener question about their top ten MMA and boxing fights in 2018. And if you want to have your question on next week’s podcast, you can tweet them to Jason or leave a comment below in the comments section.

Finally, Jason and Daniel wrap up this week’s podcast by having their weekly Buy/Sell segment. They hit on four different MMA topics including if Sage Northcutt’s next fight could take place outside of the UFC and whether or not they believe Darren Till will make weight for UFC 228.

    Where will these MMA free agents sign with? Alvarez, Barnett, Belfort, Northcutt, Soto, Kaufman, Bigfoot Silva, Erick Silva, Tibau, Tom Lawlor?

      And I’ll add Grabowski. I hope Alvarez goes back to Bellator even if it’s a 1 fight deal to fight Chandler for a 3rd time. I wanna see Barnett sign with Bellator. Lawlor and Tibau I hope sign with Rizin. I wish Bellator would sign Kaufman for their 145 division. Soto and Bigfoot will prolly sign with ACB or Rizin. Norcutt re signs with UFC. Belfort is bound to sign with Bellator. Grabowski maybe ACB. Erick Silva maybe ONE.

      These are my predictions/gut feelings

      Alvarez – Bellator
      Barnett – RIZIN
      Belfort – RIZIN
      Northcutt – Daniel and I discuss Sage’s free agency on this podcast
      Soto – Guessing LFA
      Kaufman – Likely UFC
      Bigfoot Silva – He’s fighting tomorrow in China per Sherdog
      Erick Silva – Signed with LFA
      Tibau – Has signed for Golden Boy MMA event
      Tom Lawlor – PFL

    If the Rays didn’t rebuild and tried to make playoffs this year. They still probably wouldn’t have made it even if they won 90 games.

    Do you think some MMA promotion will take a chance on Fedor’s brother? Maybe even the UFC like they did Greg Hardy? KSW, ACB, M1, or Fight Nights?

    I’m pretty sure this is the last fight on T-Wood’s contract. Bellator where you at…

      Looks like Woodley’s a free agent after tonight. In 2014 he signed an 8 fight deal and that started with the Rory fight. The 8th fight would be tonight vs Till.

    Do you know when Fedor’s brother Ivan will make his MMA debut? For sure it will happen in Russia. Maybe his first few fights will be in Russia.
