    And FYI @europe1 some pieces of your questions were cut down in transit and while being read just to make them easier to get through. I did included your lamenting the "woebegone city" when I submitted them.

    Interested in your initial breakdown of Usman v Covington. What must each do to win?

    I like him less, but it does create some hype and drama for the next fight. I get why he does it.

    I demand answers to my Genki Sudo question. The 3.5 dimensions must be explored! Embrace the lightwaves.

    I would love them to get to that one. It's lower on the list so bring it up in the chat towards the end of the show to make sure they get to it.

    I "like" him less every time I accidentally catch any of his pandering, douchebag antics.

    As far as my opinion of him as a fighter, which I try to remain largely objective about, it definitely improved as a result of his dismantling of Lawler. I thought Colby was pretty smart money to begin with, a lot of people did, but I was surprised by the completeness of his performance.

    Dislike him? Yes. Would I tell it to his face? Probably not.

    I voted “no change”. He’s clearly a capable MMA athlete, with an awful shtick. His dig at Hughes was classless. Neither his in-cage performance nor his post-fight antics changed my opinion of him.

    Like him more.
    Totally backed up his talk.
    Had an excellent strategy, an excellent execution of the strategy.
    Yes, he doesn't have power, but even Woodley admitted, you can't fault a guy for not having something he wasn't born with. He's worked hard to get where he's at. A lot of the "power" fighters don't have the skills he has. And virtually noone is a 100% complete fighter. But Colby is pretty well-rounded overall.
