JNPO: 2017 MMA Year In Review, July-September


While the first half of MMA's 2017 was relatively dull, the second half of the year was full of intrigue -- mainly due to a boxing match featuring the UFC's biggest star.

On a new edition of Josh Nason's Punch-Out, The Fight Network's Cody Saftic returns to talk about July through September 2017 which featured:

- The build-up to the biggest fight of the year money-wise in Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor including the fight itself.

- Jon Jones' triumphant return to the UFC in winning back his light heavyweight title and then the crushing news he was flagged by USADA yet again.

- The UFC struggled with main events falling through on fight week due to issues like sinusitis and bad weight cuts

- Lots of free agent signings, fight announcements, event results, Dana White guarantees that were later rescinded, and more.
