JNPO: A final look at MMA's 2017, October-December


To many, 2017 was a down year in MMA but the sport did have some fun moments in the final three months of the year and on this 90-minute Josh Nason's Punch-Out, we walk down memory lane one final time to remember.

Joining me on this show is first-time guest and fellow MMAJA member Nathan McCarter of Bleacher Report.

On the docket:

- UFC 217 and the return of Georges St-Pierre, plus the triumps of TJ Dillashaw and Rose Namajunas

- Demetrious Johnson's breaking of the all-time UFC title defense record in highlight reel fashion

- Conor McGregor being Conor McGregor in feuding with Marc Goddard and helping Bellator pop a good ratings number

- Anderson Silva gets flagged by USADA...again.

- The coronation of Cyborg Justino as the sport's top active female star

- The great UFC 218 where Max Holloway, Francis Ngannou, Eddie Alvarez and Yancy Medeiros made big impressions

- Some quick hit thoughts on Ronda Rousey's appearance at the Royal Rumble, Stipe-DC thoughts, and plenty more.
