The UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) returns tonight, Saturday, June 8th, 2019, with an outstanding PPV (Pay-Per-View) card from top to bottom. Having given us some decent fight cards thus far in 2019, perhaps none have been as interesting as the main card scheduled for UFC 238. The main event features a Bantamweight title fight between Flyweight champion, Henry “The Messenger” Cejudo, against surging 135-pound contender, “Magic” Marlon Moraes, for the vacant UFC Bantamweight belt. UFC 238’s co-main event also has a belt on the line — UFC women’s Flyweight champion, Valentina “Bullet” Shevchenko, putting her strap on the line against a surprising challenger in Jessica “Evil” Eye.
On this episode of the show, Zane Simon & Eddie Mercado of The 6th Round podcast join Flyin’ Brian J to discuss the nights violence and nonsensical post-fight antics.
This post-fight show is aimed at recapping all of the action from this event with the live viewer serving as the co-host. We go over post-fight ratings, talk about technique, discuss WTF moments from the card, and give out pretend bonuses.
