Editor's Note: This is a free show. Just click below to listen.

Our four-part journey through the 2019 MMA year continues with Paul Fontaine and I sifting through April, May, and June. 

On the docket for part 2:

  • On a pay-per-view headliend by two interim title fights, both delivered like "real" title fights as Israel Adesanya-Kelvin Gastelum and Max Holloway-Dustin Poirier provided a literal UFC 1-2 punch
  • Rory MacDonald won a fight and then questioned if being a religious man meant he didn't have the will to hurt people anymore...then fought less than two months later
  • Henry Cejudo and Patricio Pitbull both became two-division champions in hard-hitting fashion
  • The increasingly rapid decline of B.J. Penn
  • A controversy over whether spiking someone's head into the mat is legal
  • Sage Northcutt got his face crushed in his ONE debut
  • Big fights were made, guys got hurt, cards existed, and Dana White had his share of head-scratching decisions
