In a rare off week for the UFC, the promotion has generated plenty of headlines. UFC 294 witnessed Islam Makhachev’s powerful knockout victory over Alexander Volkanovski, which has caused quite a stir. Furthermore, there is speculation surrounding the middleweight division following Khamzat Chimaev’s win over Kamaru Usman, as well as the shakeups in UFC 295 due to Jon Jones’ injury.
On an exciting new edition of Heck of a Morning, Mike Heck from MMA Fighting tackles questions about the tumultuous week for the UFC. The cancellation of Jones’ fight with Stipe Miocic and its replacement with Sergei Pavlovich vs. Tom Aspinall for the interim heavyweight title takes center stage. The discussion revolves around the potential impact of losing Jones vs. Miocic on the card and compares UFC 295 to other memorable fight cards at Madison Square Garden. Additionally, listener topics include the hypothetical matchup between Tyson Fury and Francis Ngannou, exploring Ngannou’s chances of being competitive. Furthermore, the show delves into possible headliners for the UFC’s December 2 event in Austin, as well as the promotion’s anticipated return to China the following week. To top it off, a range of Free-For-All Friday questions from outside the world of MMA add an element of surprise.
