Despite the pandemic, the UFC has kept on rolling with show after show after show but have also had to deal with a slew of main event changes the last five weeks. 

On this week's Punch-Out, MMA Fighting video producer and on-screen talent Casey Leydon and I talk about the state of MMA as we end the year and whether the sport is still interesting to new fans with all of the changes at the top of the card.

We also talk about Casey's background, the changes at MMAF the past year, how the sport is still struggling with COVID-19, some Dave Meltzer stories, and even some of what we're liking on TV these days.

Then, I opine for a few minutes on whether Impact Wrestling can be trusted with this AEW angle that is set to kick off in earnest this week as well as some thoughts on Yoel Romero and the UFC parting ways.
