The Show Money crew is back to spew their sometimes educated, sometimes random theories on the only show exclusively dedicated to the business of MMA.

The Show Money crew is Paul the economist, Jason the lawyer, and John the man who knows everyone and everything in MMA. In today’s episode, the guys share their takeaways from WME-IMG’s first year of UFC ownership and John makes us give actual letter grades (Paul’s grade scale is different). Was it right to give Michael Bisping the Georges St-Pierre fight over Tyron Woodley? And what are the takeaways from the Bellator NYC pay-per-view numbers?

For those interested in specific parts, here are the start times for each segment:
WME-IMG’s first year of UFC ownership – 0:35
The GSP-Bisping-Woodley situation – 21:10
WME-IMG first-year grades and what comes next – 30:47
Bellator’s second-ever PPV and first under Scott Coker – 44:23
