Welcome to this special 200th edition of Three Amigos Podcast fun. With the UFC 229 card looming ever closer, we thought it would be a good idea to get Severe MMA’s Sean Sheehan back on the show to discuss Saturday night’s card and what the buzz surrounding the main event has been like in Ireland.
We also covered:
- Bellator 206 fallout in the UK following mammoth error that saw the main event pre-empted with episodes of the children’s cartoon, Peppa Pig.
- Daniel Cormier postponing his retirement to take another fight with Jon Jones to wrap the trilogy, as well as the UFC’s likely decision to strip him of the light heavyweight belt.
- Yesterday’s pre-fight press conference with specific topics:
- Conor’s claim that he may be making $50 million for his title fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov
- Our estimates of the pay-per-view buy rates
- Favorite moments from the presser
- Fight predictions and picks
- Pettis vs. Formiga
- Lewis vs. Volkov
