No Bets Barred: Best Bets For Saturday's Heavyweight Double Header With UFC Vegas 68 and Bellator 290

No Bets Barred: Best Bets For Saturday's Heavyweight Double Header With UFC Vegas 68 and Bellator 290

explicit

After taking a week off, the UFC is back and, for the first time in 2023, so is Bellator! UFC Vegas 68 takes place late on Saturday, headlined by a heavyweight title between Derrick Lewis and Sergey Spivak, but before that, all-time great Fedor Emelianenko makes the final walk of his career, challenging Ryan Bader for the heavyweight title at Bellator 290. And as always, the No Bets Barred boys are back as well, covering all the best betting angles for both cards. In this episode, co-hosts Conner Burks and Jed Meshew dissect both fight cards and answer important questions like: does Derrick Lewis have anything left, is Johnny Eblen as good as he looked his last time out, and should you bet Tatsuro Taira at -1150? Plus, you'll hear Conner and Jed react as the betting line on Ryan Bader PLUMMETS in real time. Tune in for Episode 33 of No Bets Barred.

HOAM | Reaction To Dana White's UFC 287 Fight Announcements, Max Holloway vs. Arnold Allen

HOAM | Reaction To Dana White's UFC 287 Fight Announcements, Max Holloway vs. Arnold Allen

explicit

Over the last few days, a slew of massive fights have been announced for the UFC, including two big ones for UFC 287 with Alex Pereira vs. Israel Adesanya 2, and Gilbert Burns vs. Jorge Masvidal. On Monday evening, another big fight was confirmed in the featherweight division between Max Holloway and Arnold Allen for the main event of the promotion's April 15 fight card. While the matchup is great on paper, was it the right fight to make for the division? On an all-new edition of Heck of a Morning, MMA Fighting's Mike Heck reacts to all of those bouts, and why the Holloway vs. Allen matchmaking is very risky right now. Additionally, listener questions include a potential Leon Edwards fight against Masvidal if both guys are victorious in their next bouts, Bellator 290, if Fedor Emelianenko is the greatest heavyweight of all-time, Shavkat Rakhmonov's next move if he defeats Geoff Neal at UFC 285, who Dustin Poirier's next opponent could be, and much more. You can listen live to Heck of a Morning Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 10 a.m. ET on the MMA Fighting Twitter Spaces.

DAMN! They Were Good: Fedor Emelianenko, Heavyweight GOAT? Celebrating The Last Walk Of ‘The Last Emperor’

explicit

DAMN! They Were Good celebrates the careers of the most exciting and influential fighters in MMA history, and on the second episode of 2023, the MMA Fighting crew remembers the best of Fedor Emelianenko as he prepares for the final fight of his legendary career. Starting his career in 2000, Emelianenko rose to prominence in Pride Fighting Championships, claiming the heavyweight championship, and the title of "Baddest Man on the Planet" in 2003, a title he held until his loss to Fabricio Werdum in 2010. In 2017, Emelianenko moved to Bellator MMA where, after a 23-year career, he fights for the final time this Saturday, in a rematch with Ryan Bader. In honor of Fedor's impending retirement, host Jed Meshew is joined by MMAFighting's Shaheen Al-Shatti, Alexander K. Lee, and E. Casey Leydon to remember their favorite moments of the GOAT’s career.
