Oh, joyous day! After what feels like an eternity of mediocre fights, the UFC is finally back with a bang for UFC 290. As always, the UFC likes to go big on International Fight Week and this time, the No Bets Barred boys are joining in on the fun. We’ll be breaking down all the fights for this weekend because we clearly have nothing better to do.
Co-hosts Conner Burks and Jed Meshew start off by expressing their sheer excitement for UFC 290. They even manage to squeeze in a little chat about Sean Strickland because who doesn’t want to talk about him? Then it’s straight into 290 talk with Conner and Jed clashing over their opinions on the top three fights! Oh boy, lots of dissension in our ranks this week. But fear not dear readers (all two of you), there’s one thing we can all agree on – Alexander Volkanovski, Yair Rodriguez, Brandon Moreno, and Alexandre Pantoja are going to put on one (Mike) Heck of a show come Saturday.
Would you just look at that! Tune in for Episode 52 of No Bets Barred where we engage in verbal warfare while discussing everything MMA related.
New episodes of our oh-so-witty podcast drop every Wednesday and can be found on Apple Podcasts (because Spotify pays us peanuts), Google Podcasts (let’s hope they don’t expose our search history!), Spotify (where people pretend they listen but don’t really), Stitcher (if you’re still living under a rock), or wherever else you find your favorite podcasts if those platforms aren’t cool enough for ya’. The latest episode awaits your desperate ears below.
