On this episode of MMA 2 the MAX, Robert and Riverside Joe review the exciting UFC 218 event, where Max Holloway once again defeated Jose Aldo to make his first defence of the UFC Featherweight championship. What’s next for the champ and the challenger? Is this truly the “Blessed Era?” Is Aldo done? Did Francis Ngannou punch his ticket to stardom…literally? Did Alvarez vs. Gaethje live up to the hype?
Plus, we preview next week’s UFC Fresno card. Who do we think wins in the main event between Cub Swanson and Brian Ortega?
Lastly, as always, we announce our Beer of the Week…and it’s not an IPA!
MMA 2 the MAX: UFC 218 Review
About MMA 2 the MAX
An MMA podcast, focused on reviewing fights from UFC, and sometimes Bellator! Listen as hosts Robert Taylor and Joseph Hudson discuss the UFC fights right after they happen, sometimes in sloppy drunken detail! They’ll also discuss the biggest news, from fight announcements to major signings! Not to mention, they give you their thoughts on weigh-ins, outside the fighting world stuff, and much more.Title
Robert has been a long time MMA fan from back in the early days of the UFC. Growing up a pro wrestling fan, the transition to MMA fandom seemed organic. A fan obsessed with stats and random trivia, he hopes to entertain the masses with his analysis.
Joe is a huge fan of footwork and distance, but even he throws those ideals to the side for an entertaining brawl. A fan since before the first Ultimate Fighter, he truly found his hardcore fandom while watching Griffin vs. Bonnar 1. He enjoys nothing more than discussing the finer points of MMA.
