Thursday’s edition of MMA Junkie Radio with hosts “Gorgeous” George and “Goze” is here!

On Episode No. 3,072 of the podcast, the fellas set the table for the last event of this run on “Fight Island,” UFC on ESPN 14, as well as the return of Bellator with Bellator 242, and more.


  • Bellator is back this weekend for the first time in five months, with Bellator 242 taking place Friday at Mohegan Sun with a bantamweight showcase in the headliner between Sergio Pettis and Ricky Bandejas fighting in a title eliminator. Aaron Pico also makes his return on the main card. What’s it mean to have Bellator back?
  • UFC on ESPN 14 features a pivotal and highly anticipated middleweight headliner between former champion Robert Whittaker and Darren Till. We break it down and talk about what’s at stake for both men.
  • UFC on ESPN 14 also has a trilogy bout 15 years in the making between legends, as Antonio Rogerio Nogueira takes on “Shogun” Rua. How possible is it that both men would lay down their gloves at the end of it?
  • MMA Junkie reporter Danny Segura joined the show to discuss the implications of Whittaker vs. Till, as well as his upcoming Spanish-language “Hablemos MMA” podcast, which is set to debut July 27.
