JNPO: UFC lightweight title, McGregor's future, ESPN+, Spencer Fisher


Several days after Dustin Poirier's convincing TKO win over Conor McGregor at UFC 257, we still don't know what's next for the UFC lightweight title and what direction Dana White wants to go in next.

On this edition of Josh Nason's Punch Out, I talk about that, the ESPN+ follies, the future of Conor McGregor and Spencer Fisher with MMA Fighting deputy editor Steven Marrocco

We discuss whether White made a blunder in not putting the title up for grabs in the Poirier-McGregor clash, what title fight we would like to see, the options for McGregor at this stage of the game and some of the well-documented issues ESPN+ ran into Saturday.

We then talk about Steven's tremendous feature on Fisher as he battles a slew of physical injuries from his fighting days. Learn how the story came together after seven years, the reaction to the piece, and the follow-up that will help guide fans and others on corrective measures that can be taken to help fighters when they hang up the gloves.
