The UFC is finally taking a few more breaks as they move into the the holidays this year, and the first of those is a week off for Thanksgiving. As such, we’re giving thanks by jumping in on one of the Depressed-us’ favorite fighters—a look at the UFC career of none other than former Brazilian title challenger Bethe Correia. More particularly, we’re focusing on that brief period of Correia’s career where the Team Pitbull Bros. product turned herself into a UFC title contender. We’re starting out with her battle against Jessamyn Duke at UFC 172, then jumping over to her fight against Shayna Baszler at UFC 177, before digging into her all too brief title fight with Ronda Rousey at UFC 190. But just because we can’t end the show on a low note, we’re following all that with her win over Jessica Eye a year later at UFC 203. As always, we’re watching all these fights on Fight Pass. So if you’d like to follow along with us, just start each video on “GO” after Zane counts them in. If you’re watching along on another medium, then Connor will try and announce the beginning of each first round so you can sync up there.

Bloody Elbow fight experts, Dayne Fox & Eddie Mercado, are here to breakdown the UFC Vegas 43 Fight Night event, which was broadcast from the APEX Center in Las Vegas, NV. The guys will have hot takes, possible next fights, as well as reactions to the overall event. The UFC showcased a Women’s Bantamweight clash in the main event of UFC Vegas 43. We had the No. 7 ranked, Brazilian BJJ grappling phenom, Ketlen ‘Fenômeno’ Vieira with a 12-1 record, entering the octagon to combat the returning No. 8 ranked, Miesha ‘2.0’ Tate; a pioneer in Women’s MMA — former Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Champion, former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion and former VP for ONE Championship. with a storied 19-7 career record. ‘Cupcake’ returned March 24 this year, after over four years away and went right into the top ten. Vieira was originally scheduled to face Tate on October 16, 2021 at UFC Vegas 40. However, on September 22, the bout was pulled from the card when Tate tested positive for COVID-19. Tonight the five-round headlining match-up finally took place. Meanwhile, the co-main event featured veteran Michael ‘Maverick’ Chiesa and up-and-comer Sean Brady, facing off in a Welterweight grappling master class. No. 13 ranked, Brady, who was listed on tapology tonight as being on a 19 fight win streak with a 14-0 official record was matched up with No. 6 ranked Chiesa, who possessed a 17-5 record heading into the bout, but was coming off a loss to Vicente Luque. Prior to the headlining bouts, we were graced with promising showdowns including, a Performance of the Night from Women’s Flyweight, Brazilian Taila Santos over Muay Thai specialist, fight veteran, Joanne Wood (formerly Jojo Calderwood) with our only finish of the entire event. In our main card opener, we had our Fight of the Night occur between Bantamweights, Adrian Yanez, who was on a seven fight win streak, and the Brit, ‘Dangerous’ Davey Grant. For much more detail on the main card and plenty of tidbits about the prelims, be sure to hit play on the show and hear what our fight experts have to say about the event tonight! Overall, this now 11-bout card saw 1 1st Rd finish, 1 sub, & 10 decisions, one split. Rounding things out, bonuses for putting forth POTN efforts went to Taila Santos; FOTN honors went to Davey Grant vs. Adrian Yanez.

"This week’s UFC card doesn’t necessarily have the feel of a banger, on paper, but it has some solid bookings all up and down. Miesha Tate looks to continue her comeback tour in the main event against Ketlen Vieira. While undefeated welterweight prospect Sean Brady gets a real chance to make a splash in the co-main against Michael Chiesa. Throw some JoJo (Calder)Wood in the mix and a surefire banger between Davey Grant and Adrian Yanez and it just might all shake out to be a pretty fun time." - Zane Simon For those fans who wish to dive deeper into the MAIN CARD, check out that version of the MMA Vivi which has NOW aired at 1pm Central today, Thurs., Nov. 18th., 2021, right here on our SC channel.

Bloody Elbow fight experts, Zane Simon & Eddie Mercado, are here to breakdown the UFC Vegas 42 Fight Night event, which was broadcast from the APEX Center in Las Vegas, NV. The guys will have hot takes, possible next fights, as well as reactions to the overall event. The UFC showcased a Featherweight Tilt in the main event of UFC Vegas 42. We had future Hall-of-Famer, the former UFC Featherweight Champion, Hawaiian born, Max ‘Blessed’ Holloway. He won that title defeating José Aldo at UFC 212 while holding the interim title, then defending that title three times. He is #1 in the UFC Featherweight rankings and #7 in the UFC men’s pound-for-pound rankings. He has a storied list of arguably the most decorated and impressive UFC career accomplishments. Not that it’s any surprise, but Max entered the Octagon a massive favorite against his combatant, Yair ‘El Pantera’ Rodriguez, who was returning after two years away. Yair was on a two-fight win streak however, and if he were to come away victorious tonight, he would have gotten a shot at that title Gold, hoping to gain the second championship for Mexico. You may recall that Rodriguez was the winning alum from The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America’s 2014 tournament. He was currently ranked #3 in the UFC Featherweight rankings. Meanwhile, the co-main event featured Heavyweights, Ben Rothwell, with a record of 39-13 and Marcos ‘Pezão’ Rogério de Lima, with a record of 18-7. Both men were entering the Octagon today with one win each under their belts. Prior to the headlining bouts, we were graced with promising showdowns including, Featherweight up-and-comers, Felicia ‘Feenom’ Spencer vs. Leah ‘Nidas’ Letson, Welterweight prospects, Miguel ‘Caramel Thunder’ Baeza vs. Khaos ‘The Oxfighter’ Williams, and for the main card opener we had Bantamweights, the ‘Kung Fu Monkey’ - Yadong Song vs. Julio Arce.

Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are here with the MMA Vivisection PRELIMS SHOW, breaking down a set of 7 of the 6 bouts on this dwindling 11-bout UFC VEGAS 42: 'Max Holloway vs. Yair Rodriguez' Fight Night event. "The UFC delivered two smoking hot cards over the last couple weeks, with UFC 267 delivering a remarkable title fight upset and UFC 268 giving two champs a chance to defend with gritty performances.

Bloody Elbow fight experts, Zane Simon & Eddie Mercado, are here to breakdown the UFC 268 PPV event, which was broadcast from Madison Square Garden, NY, NY. The guys will have hot takes, possible next fights, as well as reactions to the overall event. The UFC showcased the rematch for the UFC WW Championship in the main event. We had reigning Champ, Kamaru Usman, who was on a 20-fight win streak (the longest active streak in the division), sporting a 19-1 fight record, defending his title in this rematch against returning contender, former Interim UFC WW champion, #1 ranked Colby Covington, with a 16-2 record. Meanwhile, the Co-main event featured our 2nd title fight rematch battle tonight for the UFC SW Championship featuring current champ, Rose Namajunas, with a record of 11-4. She was determined to triumph once again over the #1 ranked contender, Weili Zhang, with a 21-2 record. Prior to the title fights, we were graced with a promising showdown including BWs, former UFC LW champion, #8 ranked BW contender, Frankie Edgar, with a 23-9 fight record vs. the #13 ranked Marlon Vera, with a 17-7 record. Not to be forgotten, was an exciting matchup between FWs, Shane Burgos, & Billy Quarantillo, which was a banger, setting a new record for the most significant strikes landed in a 3-Rd FW fight. We had a highly-anticipated LW match between Justin Gaethje & 1st-year UFC phenom, the former 3-time Bellator LW champion, Michael Chandler, in what was now our main card opener. This fight had FOTN, or maybe even FOTY written all over it. Our featured prelim bout was a clash between MWs Andreas Michailidis and the spectacular UFC promotional debut of kickboxing sensation, Alex Pereira... which did not disappoint, as part of our 9-bout undercard... which had plenty of bouts worth discussing. Overall, this now 14-bout card saw 2 1st Rd finishes, 7 KO/TKO’s, no subs, & 7 decisions, 1 split. Rounding things out, bonuses for putting forth POTN efforts went to Marlon Vera, Chris Barnett, Alex Pereira, & Bobby Green; FOTN honors went to Justin Gaethje vs. Michael Chandler.

Bloody Elbow fight experts, Zane Simon & Eddie Mercado, are here to breakdown the UFC 267 NON-PPV event, which was broadcast from ‘Fight Island’, Abu Dhabi. The guys will have hot takes, possible next fights, as well as reactions to the overall event. The UFC showcased the battle for the UFC LHW Championship in the main event. We had current Champ, Jan Blachowicz, on an impressive 5-fight win streak, sporting a 28-8 fight record, coming back to defend his title for the 2nd time - after handing Israel Adesanya the 1st loss of his career. On the other side of the Octagon, we had the returning contender, hoping to make good on his 2nd attempt at championship gold - with his 1st resulting in unanimous decision defeat to Jon Jones at UFC 172 in 2014. Teixeira was coming at this as the #1-ranked contender with a 32-7 record & some heavy hands. Ultimately, the belt is now coming to England, after Glover submitted the Champ just 3:02 into the 2nd-Rd via Rear Naked Choke. The 42-yr old newly crowned champ is now the oldest 1st-time champ & 2nd oldest champ in UFC history, as well. Add to that, most subs & most finishes in the LHW Division! Meanwhile, the co-main event featured our 2nd title fight, for the UFC Interim BW Championship, between #1 ranked, Petr ‘No Mercy’ Yan, with a record of 15-2, who was looking to redeem himself after his DQ loss to Aljamain Sterling by reclaiming the BW belt against #3 ranked, Cory ‘The Sandman’ Sandhagen, with a 14-3 record. Also on the card, we had a highly-anticipated LW match between Islam Makhachev & Dan ‘The Hangman’ Hooker. We also had a WW tilt between, ‘The Leech’ Jingliang Li, & the undefeated phenom, Khamzat ‘Borz’ Chimaev. In addition to that, we had an exciting showdown between top-10 HWs, Alexander ‘Drago’ Volkov & Marcin ‘Tybur’ Tybura; as well as the LHW scrap between #7 ranked Magomed Ankalaev vs. #8 ranked Volkan ‘No Time’ Oezdemir in our main card opener. Overall, this now 14-bout card saw 2 1st-Rd finishes, 2 KO/TKO’s, 4 subs, & 8 decisions, 1 split. Rounding things out, bonuses for putting forth POTN efforts went to Glover Teixeira & Khamzat Chimaev; FOTN honors went to Petr Yan vs. Cory Sandhagen.

"The UFC may not have been bringing their best fights to the table for their recent Fight Night offerings, but that’s just because they’ve been saving it all for their big PPV level events. UFC 267 may be free on ESPN+, but it’s headlined by a rock solid light heavyweight title fight between Jan Blachowicz and Glover Teixeira. In the co-main event Petr Yan takes on Cory Sandhagen for the interim bantamweight title. Throw some Islam Makhachev vs. Dan Hooker in there and the return of Khamzat Chimaev and it should be a fantastic day of action for the UFC." -- Zane Simon For those fans who wish to dive deeper into the MAIN CARD, check out that version of the MMA Vivi which NOW aired at 1pm Central today, Thurs., Oct. 28th., 2021, right here on our SC channel.

EPISODE 20 What made you start educating yourself so intensively on the scoring and judging criteria? Give us a rundown of changes to the criteria that have happened over the last 3-5 years Is the criteria universal or does it change overseas where promotions also act as their own commission? 10- 8 scoring criteria You famously scored round 2 of Mackenzie Dern vs. Marina Rodriguez a 10-9 rather than a 10-8.

EPISODE 19 Name some MMA fighters that are on their way to or already have generational wealth. Bonus if you leave Conor McGregor out of the conversation. Moving forward, now that the ESPN deal has netted both the UFC and ESPN such lucrative results, is there a possibility we see another megastar rise like McGregor, or is the UFC stomping out the need for such PPV magnets? Francis Ngannou’s situation is a tricky one. Discuss the finer details of contract extensions for champions and why Ngannou not signing a new deal might not matter in the long run because he’s still the champion. Can he give up the belt to get out from under? Georges St. Pierre hasn’t fought since 2017, but the UFC has managed to put the brakes to a proposed charity boxing match he wanted to do. How long do they have control over him in that regard? Is there a statute of limitations on his contract? We’ve discussed unions and/or associations many times and have come to the unfortunate conclusion that fighters are selfish creatures by necessity because of the UFC’s stranglehold on the entire market. Is there some other way outside unionization that could make their position more tenable? More and more fighters are airing their extreme financial woes including Francis Ngannou, who stated that he had to borrow money to stay afloat. The UFC blames the media, but to my knowledge, the media isn’t telling these fighters to get on the mic and say these things in interviews. Will any of these horrible stories of near destitute scenarios be enough to draw attention from govt. institutions to make a more fair and just environment? You mentioned that Joe Silva used to basically hold fighters hostage to their contracts by offering fights while they were under commission suspension. Please explain that and if that’s even legal. And by commission suspension, would that apply to USADA suspensions or strictly the AC suspensions? What are your thoughts on this new World Fight League that a network of former promoters, former NFL, NBA and MMA athletes are putting together? Does this have IFL written all over it? Do you see any red flags already? If somehow we get to see the Ali Act instituted in MMA, give us an idea of what that would look like. What would change? Are there any updates on the antitrust suit? Has any new documentation been revealed? Dana White said that Fury-Wilder 3 was what boxing needed, as though the sport is somehow in the toilet. What is the health of boxing like right now? Is there trouble on the horizon, or is Dana just spinning his wheels to make the UFC look better?

Bloody Elbow fight experts, Zane Simon & Eddie Mercado, are BACK tonight – Sat, Oct 23rd, to breakdown the UFC Vegas 41 ‘Paulo Costa vs. Marvin Vettori’ event. The guys will have hot takes, possible next fights, as well as reactions to the overall event. (SPOILERS...) This afternoon the UFC brought us yet another (the 9th in a row actually) Fight Night card from the smaller octagon at the APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, airing LIVE on ESPN+. The UFC Vegas 41 event showcased top-ranked MW Championship foes, Paulo ‘The Eraser’ Costa, (No. 2), & ‘The Italian Dream’ Marvin Vettori, (No. 5). Neither combatant had fought since their defeats at the hands of Israel Adesanya at UFC 263 & UFC 253, respectively. The main event contest became a 205lbs catchweight/LHW bout just a few days ago, when “The Eraser” failed to make weight. This brawl became an instant classic. Costa was warned about his hands more than once & had a point removed for an early eye-poke in the 2nd Rd. We got a solid 5 rds of action, pressure, blows, strikes & aggression from both men. After all of that, the judges decided Vettori was the unanimous victor, it was close, but this felt like the right call. Prior to that, our LW Co-Main event today had Grant ‘KGD’ Dawson enter the Octagon on an 8-fight win streak against Rick/y ‘The Gladiator’ Glenn. In a solid back-n-forth effort from both men, it went the distance resulting in the judges deciding on a Majority Draw, which is always a major bummer for everyone involved. On the 8-fight prelims card, our featured prelim won FOTN for the overall event -- Gregory Rodrigues proved victorious with a standing TKO via punches in the 2nd Rd over Jun Yong Park. Gregory hit Park with gigantic right hands, rocking him & sending him stumbling, took advantage of his foes weakness, followed it all up with a massive uppercut which put him to sleep standing. Also, in our 4th bout of the night, we had Jai ‘The Black Country Banger’ Herbert strike the crap out of Khama ‘The Death Star’ Worthy over the course of about 2+1/2 mins or so - 1st Rd stoppage. Overall, this massive 14-bout card saw 2 1st Rd finishes, 4 KO/TKO’s, 1 sub, & 8 decisions, 1 split. Plus, 1 majority draw. Rounding things out, bonuses for putting forth POTN efforts went to Alex Caceres & Marvin Vettori; FOTN honors went to Gregory Rodrigues vs Jun Yong Park. Here’s a look at the fight card, updated fight records & results — UFC Vegas 41: ‘PAULO COSTA VS MARVIN VETTORI’ ESPN+ MAIN CARD | SAT. OCT 23rd. 14. Marvin Vettori (18-4) DEF. Paulo Costa (13-2) — Unanimous Decision (48-46 x3) — *POTN BONUS: Vettori 13. Grant Dawson (17-1-1) vs. Ricky Glenn (22-6-2) — MAJORITY DRAW (29-28, 28-28) 12. Jessica-Rose Clark (11-6) DEF.

Connor Ruebusch & Guest Host, Dan Tom from MMA Junkie, are here with the MMA Vivisection MAIN CARD SHOW, breaking down a set of 6 bouts on this massive 14-bout UFC VEGAS 41: 'Paulo Costa vs. Marvin Vettori' Fight Night event Main Card. First of all, this card is just one more off-week card in what feels like years of off-week cards. But, if last week was a 2 out of 10, this week is a 9. Last week’s card was as low as we can go. But hey, this card isn't as bad as all that. We have two guys who have recently both lost to Israel Adesanya, who are both pressure fighters, Paulo Costa and Marvin Vettori, headlining our main event. Plus, there are a couple of pretty solid matchups peppered on this card to keep it interesting, and maybe even exciting this week. Not to mention, this card starts earlier in the day than most of our Fight Night cards, which is always a nice change of pace. To add to that, let’s just say the prelims are pleasantly surprising. For those fans who wish to dive deeper into the PRELIMS CARD, check out that version of the MMA Vivi which aired at 1pm Central today, Thurs., Oct. 21st., 2021, right here on our SC channel.

First of all, this card is just one more off-week card in what feels like years of off-week cards. But, if last week was a 2 out of 10, this week is a 9. Last week’s card was as low as we can go. But hey, this card isn't as bad as all that. To add to that, let’s just say the prelims are pleasantly surprising. The featured prelim is well-suited for this slot on the card. It is an exciting middleweight bout between ‘The Iron Turtle’ Jun Yong Park and Gregory ‘RoboCop’ Rodrigues. Park is coming into this bout on a three-fight win streak, has good wrestling skills, efficient boxing, a really decent jab and Rodrigues, the black belt, has decent wrestling as well, and a lot of defense training on how to respond to that jab and is on his own three-fight win streak.

Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are here with the MMA Vivisection MAIN CARD SHOW, breaking down a set of 5 bouts on this 11-bout UFC VEGAS 40: 'Aspen Ladd vs. Norma Dumont' Fight Night event Main Card. "It doesn’t look like the UFC is about to course correct on their low-quality Fight Night cards anytime soon. However, UFC Vegas 40 may just be their least enthralling entry of the year. In the main event, Aspen Ladd takes on Norma Dumont in a featherweight fight that’s hard to distinguish from anything in the prelims. Andrei Arlovski vs. Carlos Felipe in the co-main event only furthers that vibe." -- Zane Simon For those fans who wish to dive deeper into the PRELIMS CARD, check out that version of the MMA Vivi which airs at 1pm Central today, Thurs., Oct. 14th., 2021, right here on our SC channel.

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 39 Recap * Steve Garcia breaks Charlie Ontiveros * Lupita Godinez uses her wrestling to set up her win * Damon Jackson remains composed * NSAC doctor did a good job * Chris Gutierrez vs. Felipe Colares left me disappointed * Matheus Nicolau found his timing and Tim Elliott’s team screwed up * Randy Brown is making moves * Marina Rodriguez continues her roll in 2021 * Mackenzie Dern needs to work on takedowns and she’s still a title threat * Jason Parillo is a great coach * Is Carla Esparza Next? * Can Mackenzie Dern fix her wrestling? * Is Marina Rodriguez a candidate for 2021 Fighter of the Year? * Why did NSAC nix the James Krause fight? * Was the UFC with James Krause fighting? * What’s up with Jon Anik and bloodshed? More from this week's daily shows: * Maybe it’s time to book Henry Cejudo vs. Alexander Volkanovski * Finding fault with Chael Sonnen’s idea that UFC keeping Jon Jones is the biggest punishment * Herb Dean’s defense of not stopping the Alexander Volkanovski vs. Brian Ortega fight falls short * MMA media dropped the ball * Why did UFC release Anderson Silva, but not Georges St-Pierre? * Dana White should be surprised that Jon Jones was arrested for domestic violence - to say otherwise minimizes and normalizes Jones’ arrest * Why I think Mackenzie Dern should name the sponsors she lost when she was pregnant * Why is the UFC rewarding Aspen Ladd? * Is Bellator paying a premium to its fighters for fighting five rounds main events? It should. * BKFC doesn’t answer health and safety questions, just blocks me on Twitter If you enjoy our show, "heart" us here on SC, or "like" & share over on whichever BE Presents Podcast Channel happens to be your listening platform of choice: * YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/BloodyElbowPresents * iTunes & Apple TV: itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/blood…&i=1000421882228 * iHeartRadio: www.iheart.com/podcast/269-Blood…Presents-30639274 * Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/55S2dpKYVqndaPTUojkELm?si=oGGPZ4kESkWZigLNnEg1ug * Stitcher: www.stitcher.com/podcast/bloody-e…esents?refid=stp * TuneIn: https://tunein.com/podcasts/Sports--Recreation-Podcasts/Bloody-Elbow-Presents-p1190843/ * OverCast: overcast.fm/itunes984162015/bloody-elbow-presents * Player FM: player.fm/series/bloody-elbow-presents * & Amazon Music: https://music.amazon.com/podcasts/b53e5086-2334-497c-82c0-24ddb5e0cfbb/Bloody-Elbow-Presents ...
