Welcome to “Spinning Back Clique,” MMA Junkie’s weekly show that takes a spin through the biggest topics in mixed martial arts. In this week’s episode, “Gorgeous” George, “Goze” and John Morgan take a look at Conor McGregor, UFC 247, Logan Paul, Ronda Rousey and more.


  • What’s the deal with former UFC dual champion Conor McGregor and what can go down for him with Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal set to fight?
  • UFC 247 has two dominant champions atop the bill. Between Jon Jones and Valentina Shevchenko, which is most susceptible to a potential upset?
  • Logan Paul is hinting at getting into MMA and has raised some eyebrows at Bellator. Do we want to see it?
  • Former UFC women’s champ Ronda Rousey has basically said she’s done with MMA. But would we like to see her return, anyway?
  • And Cub Swanson recently had a bad injury in a grappling event. Are we OK with MMA fighters doing it as a side hustle now that we know these things can happen and put them on the shelf?

For answers to all of those questions, watch Episode 14 of “Spinning Back Clique.”
