Hello Ariel and Friends,

Jamahal Hill.. I watched the videos he’s made about his views on what transpired between y’all. He kinda took a page out of your book by running a video and breaking it down. If I can be honest, he has some fair points. If we can’t get a full blown 10-7 can we get a 10-8? 10-9 maybe? Just wanna hear you address what’s been said.

PS. Couldn’t you still make picks for Parlay Pals by taking the O/U on the fight time?

Thanks a lot- Gilbert Hill

Hi Ariel,

I noticed when you were interviewing Luciana you were making fun of her alot. That is typical move a guy does to flirt with a beautiful girl. Do you realize you are doing this? Any of the guys in the back notice this also?

Hola Ariel,

How is this iteration of the show doing in the ratings department? As many of us have said, the show is at its absolute best these days. Can’t get enough of it.

Also any merch updates?

Gracias.

Shalom Ariel,

What are the chances we get another Dillon Danis in-person interview before his fight against Logan Paul? I really enjoyed the last interview, we were on the edge of our seats the whole time, not knowing what was going to happen. I know Conor mentioned in your last interview to give him another chance, he's a good kid. Can you give him another chance for Conor and for us, and give us 1 more interview with him?

Hey MMA hour crew,

With the premier league set to start this weekend, and your growing interest in the sport of football, I think it would be great if we could start a fantasy league for the MMA hour community. The best fantasy app to use would be the premier league app.

Keep up the great work.

Hello hello! If I told you Conor's return fight will not be until UFC 300 and it will be for a title, which do you think would be most likely?

1. Conor vs Justin for BMF

2. Conor vs Islam/Charles for 155

3. Conor vs Leon/Colby for 170

4. Conor vs Diaz for inaugural 165

Ariel,

What do you think is the peak for Jake in boxing? Do you think a matchup with Conor is realistic? If he had beaten Tommy, he would've been a ranked fighter, so do you think becoming ranked and beating other ranked boxers is something he's interested in and capable of?

P.S. was the DAZN sponsorship of the road show the reason for apologies for bad language?

Keep doin what you do. LEEEEEEROOOOOOOOOOOY JEEEEEEEEEEEEEENKIIIIIIIIIINS

Hi Ariel,

I need to know more about the absolute scenes I witnessed via your twitter account from the Oktagon MMA twitter account. I have to be honest, I never heard of this promotion before your retweet but the atmosphere at the outdoor fights looked incredible...

It looked like a mix between an EDM concert and a MMA fight.. what more can you tell me about this promotion as it looked like they had a highly successful event - full crowds, great atmosphere etc...

As a side note outdoor MMA events just in general look incredible, this one and the gladiator event I believe KSW put on come to mind.

Thank you,

Matt

Ariel & Crew - In your opinion, who would you like to see be on the cover of the UFC 5 game? Looking into your crystal ball, who may be a candidate for UFC 6? Thanks, love the show.

Hi Ariel,

Quick one today..

Does Danis fully redeem himself with a spectacular KO against Logan or cement himself as the troll GOAT (and laughingstock of the mma community) by not showing up once again? Or possibly the worst outcome.. he actually shows up this time and gets molly whopped?

Thanks!

Hi Ariel & team! First off, let’s go Buffalo!

This question is mainly for GC, unless everyone else is a fan, but how many times have you listened to Utopia so far and what are your thoughts? Any surprises? I wasn’t expecting to hear playboi carti myself.

Hi Ariel! Nardwuar is from Vancouver, just like you, and especially in recent years, his journalism has proven to be truly unique yet skillful. So much so that some journalists in MMA have emulated his persona. What does Nardwuar mean to you as a journalist, and how important do you consider standing out as a distinctive personality in successful journalism work?

Hello Ariel and Crew,

What's your thoughts on fighters moving up in rankings if they miss weight, and is it fair? For example, if (7)Johnny Walker fought (4)Jan Blachowicz, and Johnny pulls off the victory, but he missed weight do you think it's fair he moves up in the ranks considering he didn't make the 206 pound weight limit? Should he be rewarded with a higher number next to his name?

Hi Ariel,

How excited are you about Paul vs Danis? What’s the over/under on whether or not he even makes it to the fight? Thank you for everything you do and all the best to the boys in the back!

Much love,

Rob
