Josh Nason's Punch-Out: MMA Year In Review (April-June)



With the most newsworthy and eventful year in MMA history now a wrap, Josh Nason continues his annual year in review process one quarter at a time. 

After looking at the table-setting Q1 with Paul Fontaine, Josh is joined by Bloody Elbow's John Nash to reconstruct an eventful April-June, tackling the following:

- The incredible UFC 199 that featured a big title change upset, the announcement of both Brock Lesnar's return and Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz II, and Ariel Helwani's MMA Fighting crew being put on the banned list for several days​​​​​​ afterward

- The drama surrounding Conor McGregor being pulled from UFC 200, his "retirement" on Twitter, the new headliner of Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier, and the circumstances that led to Jones vs. Cormier II being pulled from UFC 197 to begin with

- Benson Henderson's rough welcome into Bellator

- The UFC's new morning weigh-in policy and how it's affected the game

- The UFC 198 Brazilian megashow and why UFC hasn't been back to the country for a PPV since then

- The impact of the deaths of Kimbo Slice and Muhammad Ali...and more!
