On To the Next One | Matches To Make After UFC Mexico City

UFC's return to Mexico proved to be an unpredictable one and it was certainly a memorable Saturday as Brandon Royval and Brian Ortega both scored impressive upset wins in rematches to reinsert themselves into the flyweight and featherweight title pictures, respectively. What does this mean for the careers of Brandon Moreno and Yair Rodriguez, who fell short against their rivals and now find themselves in the unfamiliar position of having lost consecutive fights in high stakes situations? With Mike Heck on vacation this week, MMA Fighting's Jed Meshew steps in to join host Alexander K. Lee as they determine what comes next from a matchmaking perspective on an all-new edition of On To the Next One. Future matchups are discussed for the four men at the top of the card, as well as for Daniel Zellhuber following his impressive win over Francisco Prado, Yazmin Jauregui after a bounce-back performance against Sam Hughes, one of the lightweight division's most exciting up-and-comers Manuel Torres, and more!

No Bets Barred: Best Bets For UFC Mexico And PFL Vs. Bellator

Wow! UFC 298 is in the books and with it an impressive new champion in the featherweight division as Ilia Topuria slept Alexander Volkanovski to claim the crown. But the greatest sport in the world never sleeps and even coming off the best event of the year thus far, there's still more to come as this weekend features a double header with the two premier promotions in MMA: UFC Mexico and PFL vs. Bellator: CHAMPS. And of course the No Bets Barred boys are back with a full breakdown of this double-stuffed weekend. Conner Burks and Jed Meshew kick things off with a recap of UFC 298 and Jed's calamitous weekend, before diving straight into the UFC's return to Mexico. Can Brandon Moreno beat Brandon Royval a second time to keep his lead in the Battle of the Brandons? How will the rest of the Mexican fighters do in front of their countrymen? And how many flyweight fights is too many fights on one card? Then it's over to PFL vs. Bellator where Conner and Jed discuss the chances of a Bellator clean sweep in the marquee matchups, some massive underdogs that maybe shouldn't be so big, and even a little Wolfpack Wager for good measure.
