WARNING: Explicit content, motherf*ckers!
The analysis on this week’s Heavy Hands is as in-depth as ever, but an air of giddiness suffuses everything. Because NATE DIAZ DID IT. We just can’t believe what we saw, and we take great pleasure in breaking down every aspect of the shocking upset, including Diaz’s excellent jab, his underrate footwork, and the masterful jiu-jitsu with which he ended the fight.
Of course, we have to ask what’s next for Conor McGregor. Has he wandered too far down the puncher’s path, or is this fight a saving grace for him? Is it possible that McGregor will prove to be a front-runner for the rest of his career, or is experience the cure?
To wrap things up we discuss Miesha Tate’s own upset win, breaking down the choke with which she put Holly Holm to sleep in the fifth round of her bantamweight title fight. A few questions from our wonderful listeners, and that’s the show.
