You know the drill by now.
Hit me with your best questions below. Everything and anything goes. Questions only available to paid subscribers. Sorry, them’s the rules.
And 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 new mod around these parts, and his job is to select the best 21 or so questions. Deadline to get them in is once the show starts. Good luck, and make ‘em count!

I don't have a question this week, rather I wanted to use this opportunity for a PSA that can benefit all fighters. Inbetween rounds in a fight you will commonly see a fighter's corner rubbing ice on their chest, back, head and neck. These are the most common areas you will see the ice pack being applied, however this is not the best way to cool down a fighter between rounds, and may actually be damaging. Current science shows the best way to cool athletes down in preparation for further output is through the glabrous skin areas on the body, glabrous skin is hairless skin such as the palms of your hand, soles of your feet, and the skin on your face above the beard line. These areas are proven to cool your body temperature down at exponentially faster rates.
Please help spread the word, this is by far the cheapest, most effective, and easiest implementation fight corners can make immedietly that will benefit fighter health and safety. Dr. Andrew Huberman is the neurobiologist out of Stanford who I would recommend having on your show to discuss the science behind this, he has an episode on his podcast all about the science of cooling for optimum athletic performance which I hope people check out.
👋 Hola Ariel!!!
Although UFC 275 has two title fights, the fight I am most looking forward to is the rematch of Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk. I would like to know your thoughts on how different this fight will be due to it not only being a rematch but also being a 15 minute fight as opposed to the 25 minutes allotted in the first matchup.
Big news, I am currently moving back home after nearly 5 years! Meaning I am driving to Miami from Colorado as you are reading this. I have not heard Monday’s episode and will not be hearing today’s episode until Thursday, but I’d like to thank you and the crew in advance for helping me knock out 6-8 hours out of this 28 hour journey!
