    Kamaru and Lawler are both with Hooft and Tyron and Ben are both with Roufus?

    If so kind of cool that they'll all be in camp together for fights on the same night. In the same weight class no less.

    You should do both gi and nogi, they complement each other. Nogi tends to be faster paced as you can't grip/slow down people as well as you can in the gi. Be ready to get smashed for a while. Just passed the 10 year mark this week training BJJ.

    Ariel really made it. Surreal thinking back to when he was first coming up

    Man as much as Ariel is hated by the fighters he stuck to his code, asking questions no one else wanted to and not budging when put under pressure by dudes that can feasibly rip his head off his shoulders

    I like Ariel. I’ve listened to the MMA hour for years (probably before Weidman beat Silva).

    I feel he skirts into real journalism but not really. Besides “announcing” fights, he occasional union talk. Mike Russell was the one who broke all of that Ali revelations that Conor was spewing off.

    No one is going to really look into the JBJ PED issue. It’s officially swept under the rug now as we march to UFC 235. Look at that smug post by JBJ, despite the smoking gun.

    Everyone stays away from the Checnyan oligarch connection to MMA fighters.

    Interested to see the reaction to Greg Hardy.

    Too bad, Colby Covington disease is a real thing. Play ball or don’t get paid/fight.

    Nick, Nate, Colby...

    Also, Ali seems to have a lot of power behind the scenes. Jeez.

    Khabib
    Conor has a newborn and a booming whiskey company. Would not be surprised if he took the year off

    I would also guess Khabib, what is up with his potential suspension though? I thought we would have known by now. LW belt held up once again smh.

    if dana had a big fight lined up for khabib, the whole hearing/suspension drama would be over. probably a slap on the wrist, but i think with how much khabib called out dana there isn't a urgency to get him back

    oh also i think Luke Thomas and Chaels MMA "shows" are alot more entertaining. Ariel got the MMA news beat covered but id rather hear either one of them discuss current events

    Will do thanks for the advice. Wow congrats on 10 years that’s amazing. Yea I’ve been tapping like crazy to avoid injury and honestly I’m learning a lot relatively quickly. I’ll make sure to incorporate both styles early so that one isn’t foreign and I’m decent in both styles.

    Luke Thomas new mma hour is better

    Ariel used to have great content but he’s jumped the shark and is pretty much a puppet

    The best show imo is the A Side with Shaun al Shatti and Marc ramondi

    The mma beat is my second favorite show

    seems like after Ariel cried for his pass back from dana he turned into more of puppet
    hopefully, espn will allow Ariel to be more vocal and share his opinions, but i doubt it with their history
