All around me are familiar faces
It’s that time of the week again.
Hit me with your best questions below. As always, everything and anything goes. I’ll answer ‘em on Wednesday’s show.
Again, try to keep them short and sweet, if possible. That increases your chances of having the question answered.
And remember: my mate Louis Gilmour is the mod around these parts, and his job is to select the best 21 or so questions. Good luck, and make ‘em count!
See you TOMORROW on the MMAFighting YouTube channel!
Bonjour Lord Ariel,
It feels like yesterday Kamaru Usman was considered by many to be the #1 lb for lb fighter in the world, then came the infamous headshot KO loss to Leon "Rocky" Edwards. Considering that devastating defeat, followed by the recent resurgence of Jones, Volk and Islam in the lb for lb rankings, my question is where would a dominant victory over Leon on Saturday put Kamaru in the lb for lb discussion? If he wins the trilogy it would be his 7th title victory in one of the most highly competitive divisions in the UFC. Would it be enough to jump Islam or Volk?
Thanks for being the #1 lb for lb show in combat sports.

Can we cut the shenanigans with New York Ric? It is one thing to say he does not not enjoy the product more with a live crowd in attendance, but to say a live crowd in a packed arena has NO effect on the viewing experience is objectively wrong. If he thinks Yan vs Merab had the same viewing experience as Strickland vs Imavov, I say he's lying. Although I may not agree with all of Ric's takes, this one is just egregious. Can he concede on this point or will he double-down til the end of time?
Much love to Ric and the rest of the crew.
