The MMA Depressed-us 61: Bethe Correia Retrospective
The UFC is finally taking a few more breaks as they move into the the holidays this year, and the first of those is a week off for Thanksgiving. As such, we’re giving thanks by jumping in on one of the Depressed-us’ favorite fighters—a look at the UFC career of none other than former Brazilian title challenger Bethe Correia. More particularly, we’re focusing on that brief period of Correia’s career where the Team Pitbull Bros. product turned herself into a UFC title contender. We’re starting out with her battle against Jessamyn Duke at UFC 172, then jumping over to her fight against Shayna Baszler at UFC 177, before digging into her all too brief title fight with Ronda Rousey at UFC 190. But just because we can’t end the show on a low note, we’re following all that with her win over Jessica Eye a year later at UFC 203. As always, we’re watching all these fights on Fight Pass. So if you’d like to follow along with us, just start each video on “GO” after Zane counts them in. If you’re watching along on another medium, then Connor will try and announce the beginning of each first round so you can sync up there.

UFC VEGAS 43: VIEIRA VS TATE | 6th Round Post-Fight Show
Bloody Elbow fight experts, Dayne Fox & Eddie Mercado, are here to breakdown the UFC Vegas 43 Fight Night event, which was broadcast from the APEX Center in Las Vegas, NV. The guys will have hot takes, possible next fights, as well as reactions to the overall event. The UFC showcased a Women’s Bantamweight clash in the main event of UFC Vegas 43. We had the No. 7 ranked, Brazilian BJJ grappling phenom, Ketlen ‘Fenômeno’ Vieira with a 12-1 record, entering the octagon to combat the returning No. 8 ranked, Miesha ‘2.0’ Tate; a pioneer in Women’s MMA — former Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Champion, former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion and former VP for ONE Championship. with a storied 19-7 career record. ‘Cupcake’ returned March 24 this year, after over four years away and went right into the top ten. Vieira was originally scheduled to face Tate on October 16, 2021 at UFC Vegas 40. However, on September 22, the bout was pulled from the card when Tate tested positive for COVID-19. Tonight the five-round headlining match-up finally took place. Meanwhile, the co-main event featured veteran Michael ‘Maverick’ Chiesa and up-and-comer Sean Brady, facing off in a Welterweight grappling master class. No. 13 ranked, Brady, who was listed on tapology tonight as being on a 19 fight win streak with a 14-0 official record was matched up with No. 6 ranked Chiesa, who possessed a 17-5 record heading into the bout, but was coming off a loss to Vicente Luque. Prior to the headlining bouts, we were graced with promising showdowns including, a Performance of the Night from Women’s Flyweight, Brazilian Taila Santos over Muay Thai specialist, fight veteran, Joanne Wood (formerly Jojo Calderwood) with our only finish of the entire event. In our main card opener, we had our Fight of the Night occur between Bantamweights, Adrian Yanez, who was on a seven fight win streak, and the Brit, ‘Dangerous’ Davey Grant. For much more detail on the main card and plenty of tidbits about the prelims, be sure to hit play on the show and hear what our fight experts have to say about the event tonight! Overall, this now 11-bout card saw 1 1st Rd finish, 1 sub, & 10 decisions, one split. Rounding things out, bonuses for putting forth POTN efforts went to Taila Santos; FOTN honors went to Davey Grant vs. Adrian Yanez.

UFC VEGAS 42: HOLLOWAY VS RODRIGUEZ | 6th Round Post-Fight Show
Bloody Elbow fight experts, Zane Simon & Eddie Mercado, are here to breakdown the UFC Vegas 42 Fight Night event, which was broadcast from the APEX Center in Las Vegas, NV. The guys will have hot takes, possible next fights, as well as reactions to the overall event. The UFC showcased a Featherweight Tilt in the main event of UFC Vegas 42. We had future Hall-of-Famer, the former UFC Featherweight Champion, Hawaiian born, Max ‘Blessed’ Holloway. He won that title defeating José Aldo at UFC 212 while holding the interim title, then defending that title three times. He is #1 in the UFC Featherweight rankings and #7 in the UFC men’s pound-for-pound rankings. He has a storied list of arguably the most decorated and impressive UFC career accomplishments. Not that it’s any surprise, but Max entered the Octagon a massive favorite against his combatant, Yair ‘El Pantera’ Rodriguez, who was returning after two years away. Yair was on a two-fight win streak however, and if he were to come away victorious tonight, he would have gotten a shot at that title Gold, hoping to gain the second championship for Mexico. You may recall that Rodriguez was the winning alum from The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America’s 2014 tournament. He was currently ranked #3 in the UFC Featherweight rankings. Meanwhile, the co-main event featured Heavyweights, Ben Rothwell, with a record of 39-13 and Marcos ‘Pezão’ Rogério de Lima, with a record of 18-7. Both men were entering the Octagon today with one win each under their belts. Prior to the headlining bouts, we were graced with promising showdowns including, Featherweight up-and-comers, Felicia ‘Feenom’ Spencer vs. Leah ‘Nidas’ Letson, Welterweight prospects, Miguel ‘Caramel Thunder’ Baeza vs. Khaos ‘The Oxfighter’ Williams, and for the main card opener we had Bantamweights, the ‘Kung Fu Monkey’ - Yadong Song vs. Julio Arce. We had plenty of exciting prelim bouts to discuss tonight as well. Overall, this now 11-bout card saw 5 1st Rd finishes, 8 KO/TKO’s, 1 sub, & 2 decisions. Rounding things out, bonuses for putting forth POTN efforts went to Andrea Lee & Khaos Williams; FOTN honors went to Max Holloway vs. Yair Rodriguez. Join us to go over all the face-punching action!

UFC VEGAS 42: Holloway vs Rodriguez, Picks, Odds, & Analysis | The MMA Vivisection PRELIMS SHOW
Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are here with the MMA Vivisection PRELIMS SHOW, breaking down a set of 7 of the 6 bouts on this dwindling 11-bout UFC VEGAS 42: 'Max Holloway vs. Yair Rodriguez' Fight Night event. "The UFC delivered two smoking hot cards over the last couple weeks, with UFC 267 delivering a remarkable title fight upset and UFC 268 giving two champs a chance to defend with gritty performances.
