This week on Heavy Hands we’re looking forward to the imminent UFC extravaganza, with three events taking place three days in a row, from December 10th through December 12th. There are too many great matchups to discuss on this episode, so we’re saving a few (including Aldo vs McGregor) for next week and reserving the bulk of this week’s show for the middleweight title tilt between Chris Weidman and Luke Rockhold, who is almost certainly the young champion’s toughest challenge to date.
It’s maybe the most technical, well-rounded matchup in middleweight history, and it’s a doozy to predict as a result, but we do our best! After that, it’s the number one contender’s fight between Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, and Yoel “The Preacher of Pain/The Cardinal of Carnage/The Vicar of Violence/The Pontiff of Punishment” Romero, two of the sport’s most explosive old men.
Wrapping things up, we give the quick skinny on Paige VanZant vs Rose Namajunas, Aljamain Sterling vs Johnny Eduardo, and Edson Barboza vs Tony Ferguson. Who says there’s too much of a good thing? Enjoy the show!
