UFC Bantamweight Champion Aljamain Sterling defended his championship at UFC 288, and while he gets less respect than Rodney Dangerfield, it's hard to fault a win over former champion Henry Cejudo. We discuss the results of that fight, and the rest of the UFC 288 card, in the first half of this week's episode.
Then in the second half of the show we run down the rest of the week in MMA, including a great One Championship event, Irene Aldana replacing Julianna Pena against Amanda Nunes, our preview of the upcoming UFC on ABC: Rozenstruik vs. Almeida, and more.
Finally, in our Hammer History segment we look back 500 episodes to early June 2013, and an underwhelming The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 2 finale, as well as big money moves for Rampage Jackson.
