Episode details

What a night! UFC 269 delivered a spectacular final pay-per-view event for 2021 as the UFC’s final premium offering served up one of the most unforgettable performances in UFC championship history.

That performance came in the co-main event, as Julianna Pena, almost universally considered a huge underdog, submitted two-division champ Amanda Nunes to capture the UFC women’s bantamweight title.

With all respect to Nunes, it was a huge feel-good moment to see someone defy the odds to make their dream a reality, but where should Pena’s incredible win stand in the pantheon of great UFC title fight upsets?

We discuss that very topic on this week’s show, as we recap a quite brilliant night of fights at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas – including Charles Oliveira’s finish of Dustin Poirier in the main event – and offer our takes on the big talking points that arose as a result.

We also take a look ahead to the final UFC card of 2021, as Derrick Lewis faces surging contender Chris Daukaus in a battle of knockout artists at the UFC Apex.

It’s a jam-packed show, with lots to discuss, so what are you waiting for?! Dive in and enjoy!
