The annual Josh Nason's Punch-Out four-part series looking back at the year in MMA comes to an end with October, November and December 2021.

In the finale, Wrestling Observer/Fight Game Media podcaster and writer Paul Fontaine and I recap all the news, results and happenings including:

  • The UFC wrapping up an incredibly successful financial year with three straight months of sold-out pay-per-views which did big business at the ESPN+ box office
  • Glover Teixeira and Jose Aldo continuing to flip off Father Time as the former won his first UFC light heavyweight title while the latter continued his run toward another title shot with a dominant win over Rob Font
  • Kamaru Usman's march toward being crowned the best welterweight of all-time continued with another win over rival Colby Covington at a memorable UFC return to MSG
  • Charles Oliveira continuing his run toward the lightweight GOAT conversation with a UFC title defense against Dustin Poirier at another memorable PPV that also saw Julianna Pena dethrone all-time great Amanda Nunes and much more
  • We look ahead to some potentially big storylines and points of interest for 2022.

All that and more awaits. Just click below to listen.
