Fighter vs. Writer: Alan Jouban Reacts to Bad UFC Louisville Stoppage, Hopes WWE Event Changes How UFC Uses APEX

explicit

The Fighter vs. The Writer returns with UFC analyst Alan Jouban and MMA Fighting senior reporter Damon Martin discussing the latest in combat sports including the stoppage in the main event at UFC Louisville where Nassourdine Imavov defeated Jared Cannonier but not without some controversy. We’ll discuss the stoppage and if referee Jason Herzog blew it by ending the fight before Cannonier was truly done and what that does for Imavov going forward. We’ll also talk about the WWE event that took place at the UFC APEX on Sunday night with a packed house filled with fans, which is a much different look than the typical UFC cards in the same venue. Jouban explains why that event might force the UFC’s hand to make some changes moving forward with future APEX cards. We also talk about the latest with Conor McGregor after the UFC 303 press conference was cancelled at the last minute, which led to speculation that perhaps he wasn’t going to fight Michael Chandler after all. Now that it appears the fight is still happening was this all part of McGregor’s plan or could something else be happening behind the scenes?
