Serious technical difficulties made yesterday's episode unlistenable. So we've just blown it up completely, and recorded a replacement episode focusing on Conor McGregor and UFC 197 discussion.

As you'd expect We begin this week's show discussing McGregor's original teased retirement, the multiple responses from Dana White, and the most recent Facebook statement made by McGregor.

Then we preview as many of the fights on this Saturday night's UFC 197: Jones vs. Saint Preux that we can, including Jon Jones vs. Ovince Saint Preux for the UFC Interim Light Heavyweight Championship, Demetrious Johnson vs. Henry Cejudo for the UFC Flyweight Championship, and a highly anticipated Lightweight fight between Anthony Pettis and Edson Barboza.

Finally, we break down the rest of the week's MMA news including the results of last weekend's UFC On Fox 19, Ben Henderson challenging for the Bellator Welterweight Championship, the short-lived suspension of Kimbo Slice, the arrest of Diego Brandao, some Bellator and Rizin results, and more.

No Episode This Week

Sorry everyone. We had a corrupted file for Episode 295.  I spent about five hours trying to it, and even uploaded a version of it Wednesday night, but I hated the sound of it so much that I just deleted it.  

It's been an ongoing issue for the past month, but this week was too much to condone.

We'll be back next week to recap UFC 197, and hopefully it won't sound like garbage.
