Fighter vs. Writer: Matt Brown Tries To Find a Way to Get Excited About UFC 293 and Explains Why It’s So Hard for Fighters to Stay Retired
Manage episode 376144569 series 2459010
The Fighter vs. The Writer returns with UFC legend Matt Brown and MMA Fighting senior reporter Damon Martin discussing the fallout from UFC Paris and looking ahead at UFC 293.
Ciryl Gane got a big win in the main event at UFC Paris but did we learn anything about him that we didn’t already know? Does he need to take on a top grappler like Tom Aspinall, Curtis Blaydes or Jailton Almedia to truly prove he’s still an elite heavyweight?
Plus we react to Rose Namajunas’ debut at flyweight and the news that she plans to stay at 125 pounds for the future rather than making her return to the strawweight division.
We’ll also look ahead at UFC 293 and try to convince ourselves that Sean Strickland has a legitimate chance at upsetting Israel Adesanya. We’ll also tease what could be next for Adesanya if he wins — a grudge match with Dricus Du Plessis or could Khamzat Chimaev present a more interesting matchup if he gets through Paulo Costa at UFC 294.
Also following news that Paul Felder is plotting a potential comeback to the cage, Brown explains why it’s so hard for fighters to actually stay retired from the sport.
