Zane Simon, Connor Ruebusch, and Phil Mackenzie get together for another non-fight week to watch the worst MMA they can find. This week we’re watching Travis Browne vs. Fabricio Werdum 2, Kazushi Sakuraba vs. Gilles Arsene, and Gilbert Melendez vs. Shinya Aoki.
The UFC and other major MMA promotions are on holiday this week, which means the MMA Depressed-us is back on the job. This time around we’re watching a forgotten battle of elite lightweights in Strikeforce, as Gilbert Melendez defended his title against Shinya Aoki. But first, to start the show, we’re watching the heavyweight rematch nobody wanted or needed with Travis Browne vs. Fabricio Werdum 2 (the UFC 203 fight), and to balance things out in the middle a Kazushi Sakuraba less-than-classic Pride fight against Gilles Arsene.
All bouts can be found on Fight Pass. Just sync them up to our countdowns to follow along. And as always, if you enjoyed the show, give us a “like” over on YouTube. Maybe even subscribe to our channel, MMANATIONDOTCOM. That way you’ll always be among the first to get the latest BE shows, interviews, and analysis.
