Greatest fight in featherweight history! One of the most skilled fighters to ever step foot in the ring or cage defends his title against the most dangerous contender he’s ever–what’s that? It’s over already? Oh.

Huh.

It took Conor McGregor a mere 13 seconds to lay 10-time champion Jose Aldo out flat on the canvas and emphatically declare himself the best featherweight in the world. On this week’s episode of Heavy Hands, we ask how much we can really take away from such a quick and one-sided victory, get a little sentimental about the potential end of Jose Aldo’s career, and break down the tactics–well, tactic that McGregor used to get the KO.

After that it’s on to Luke Rockhold, who put a beatdown on middleweight champion Chris Weidman, and Frankie Edgar, who made us look like fools for doubting him–again.

Finally, we give our predictions for next week’s lightweight title fight between newly crowned champion Rafael Dos Anjos and fan favorite Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. Should be a good one!

    I don’t understand how you guys think there is an “adverserial relationship” between Conor and UFC. Conor is bringing in far more money to the UFC than he costs the UFC. He is bringing added interest (however slight it may be) to every other fighter on his cards and beyond.

    While it may be an annoyance or challenge for top brass like Dana White to backtrack on promises to other fighters (e.g. Edgar) and find a palatable way to communicate what Conor’s terms for his next fight are to the rest of the UFC & public, the gentlemen on this podcast have lost the plot on the business analysis.
