Comparing Diaz & Ngannou’s Contract Situations | Hey Not the Face! - 01
EPISODE 01 What is Diaz’s current status and what happens next? (Define “exclusive matching period”) Promotions are claiming to be speaking to Nate Diaz, specifically Scott Coker, about possibly signing him. Ariel Helwani says that is patently untrue because of the matching period. Explain why that is (or isn’t) true. Why did it take so long for Diaz to become a free agent? Wasn’t he supposed to have a sunset clause? Tell me about the 3 fights a year guarantee from the UFC *Side convo about antitrust suit What’s different about Ngannou’s contract vs Diaz’s? How effective are Ngannou’s and Diaz’s management? Which fighter has the better options or higher earning potential? How likely is the UFC to make offers these guys can’t refuse? Is there anything that would improve Ngannou’s, Diaz’s or other fighters’ leverage with the UFC? What high profile fighter should we be keeping an eye on to follow those two?

The MMA Depressed-us 68: FOTY? 'Rockhold vs Costa'

The MMA Depressed-us 68: FOTY? 'Rockhold vs Costa'
2022 may have already provided fans with the MMA Depressed-us’ most perfect fight of all time, when Carla Esparza took the UFC strawweight title from Rose Namajunas. But it’s had some other pretty special bouts to catch our eyes. Most recently, a trio of wild contest had us thinking, “Damn, that’s quality MMA Depressed-us material.” We’re kicking things off with the ultimate in husky-boi crazy sloppy MMA with Chris Barnett’s amazing comeback win over Jake Collier at UFC 279: Diaz vs. Ferguson, at 8:58. To chase that, we’ve got a fight from just this last weekend, when Trevin Giles fought Louis Cosce at UFC Vegas 60: Sandhagen vs. Song, at 27:42. And finally, we’re wrapping things up with a top tier legendary ‘good-bad’ bout between Paulo Costa and Luke Rockhold at UFC 278, at 43:09. This time around we’re watching all three of these bouts on ESPN+. For those who want to watch along at home with us, just queue up each video at hit play when Zane says “Go.” If you’re watching the fights on another platform then keep your ears open for Connor who will try and tell you when round 1 begins.

Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are here with the MMA Vivisection PRELIMS SHOW, breaking down a set of 8 bouts on this 14-bout UFC Vegas 60: 'Sandhagen vs Song' Fight Night event. "The UFC is bringing a pretty hot Fight Night card back to the Apex facility in Las Vegas, NV this week. In the main event we’ve got a bantamweight war between Cory Sandhagen and Yadong Song. That sits alongside a middleweight banger between Chidi Njokuani and Gregory Rodrigues, and a scrappy featherweight fight between Andre Fili and Bill Algeo. By the time the night’s over, it seems guaranteed that fans will have seen a quality scrap or two." - Zane Simon 9.14.22 For those fans who wish to dive deeper into the MAIN CARD, check out that version of the MMA Vivi which already aired at 1PM Central today, Thurs., Sep. 15th., 2022, right here on our SC channel.

UFC 279: Diaz vs. Ferguson, Picks & Analysis | The MMA Vivisection PRELIMS SHOW

UFC 279: Diaz vs. Ferguson, Picks & Analysis | The MMA Vivisection PRELIMS SHOW
Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are here with the MMA Vivisection PRELIMS SHOW, breaking down a set of 8 bouts on this 13-bout UFC 279: 'Diaz vs, Ferguson' PPV event, formerly known as Chimaev vs Diaz... although three bouts on the main card have changed since recording the Vivi shows, none of the prelim bouts were affected leaving this show accurate despite the bout changes on the PPV portion of the card. "The UFC is back again on PPV this week, but it doesn’t feel like the matchmaker's got the memo. UFC 279 is headlined by a much-maligned bout between Nate Diaz and Khamzat Chimaev—a fight that seems primed to send Diaz packing from the promotion with a swift kick in the ass. In the co-main, former interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson tries his hand at welterweight against China Top Team star Li Jingliang. At least the catchweight bout between Kevin Holland and Daniel Rodriguez has all the look of a fascinating challenge." - Zane Simon 9.8.22 For those fans who wish to dive deeper into the MAIN CARD, check out that version of the MMA Vivi which already aired at 1PM Central today, Thurs., Sep. 8th., 2022, right here on our SC channel.

UFC 279: CHIMAEV VS DIAZ, Picks & Analysis |The MMA Vivisection
Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are here with the MMA Vivisection MAIN CARD SHOW, breaking down a set of 5 bouts on this 13-bout UFC 279: 'Chimaev vs Diaz' PPV event. "The UFC is back again on PPV this week, but it doesn’t feel like the matchmaker's got the memo. UFC 279 is headlined by a much-maligned bout between Nate Diaz and Khamzat Chimaev—a fight that seems primed to send Diaz packing from the promotion with a swift kick in the ass. In the co-main, former interim lightweight champion Tony Ferguson tries his hand at welterweight against China Top Team star Li Jingliang. At least the catchweight bout between Kevin Holland and Daniel Rodriguez has all the look of a fascinating challenge." - Zane Simon 9.8.22 For those fans who wish to dive deeper into the PRELIMS CARD, check out that version of the MMA Vivi which will air at 2PM Central today, Thurs., Sep. 8th., 2022, right here on our SC channel.
