The bracket for the upcoming Bellator bantamweight Grand Prix was revealed by the promotion last week and the guys give their take on how the bracket could play out, who they consider the favorite, and the impact of Sergio Pettis withdrawing from the tournament due to injury.
Up next, you will hear the conversation Jason had with Cage Warriors featherweight champion Jordan Vucenic (starts at 28:20). Jason speaks with Jordan about his successful title defense earlier this month at Cage Warriors 34 and what could be next for him.
Then the guys discuss the UFC heavyweight division and play matchmaker for the top ten UFC heavyweights. Who do they see Jon Jones making his heavyweight debut against?
