The MMA Outsider Podcast Episode 27 – Looking back at UFC 137 and forward towards UFC 138

I am probably busier than I have ever been in my life. I work five jobs and still need to find time to embarrass myself on the streets of DC.

And that was after a win, so just wait until he loses again.

After an awkward and poorly timed transition, we moved on to preview UFC 138, taking place this Saturday. The main thing to take away? At least you won’t have to pay for this card.

We’ll be back next week with guests and analysis. Maybe. If we feel like it. ”
