Leading into the 76th episode of Josh Nason's Punch-Out, I was planning on talking to Jack Encarnacao (Sherdog, The Lapsed Fan, Boston Herald) primarily about Saturday's Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight and a little bit of Brock Lesnar.
Then, Tuesday night happened and all hell broke loose. Lucky for you, that means an even bigger show.
- For the first 20 minutes, Jack and I talked about the recently wrapped SummerSlam four-day weekend and some of the key talking points coming out of it including the SmackDown debut of Bobby Roode.
- I asked Jack whether we can only truly appreciate the greatness of Lesnar after he's gone and the key to his staying power and success in 2017.
- We then took another 20 minutes to break into the latest Jon Jones UFC-USADA debacle which threatens to effectively disrail Jones' career and legacy.
- We then finished up with discussion on the big fight of the year: McGregor vs. Mayweather. This isn't a technical deep dive by any means, but we both have different views on the fight and we unpacked the best case/worst case scenarios for both the UFC and McGregor.
