Cookie Monster | Art of MMA #33

What Rob Font did to Cody Garbrandt? Impressive. Cyborg dominating Leslie Smith? Expected. But the performance that absolutely stole the show this week? Carla Esparza! Her dominant TKO win vs Xiaonan Yan put her in immediate title contention! Of course, we talk about the news and all the craziness of the Diego Sanchez/Joshua Fabia situation in This Week in MMA before we breakdown UFC Vegas 27 as well as Bellator 259 and Invicta’s return. And then since there is no UFC, Bellator or PFL this week, we turn our attention to this weekend’s CFFC action!

πŸ‘‰ Special shoutout to Paul Felder. Thank you Paul. Loved watching you fight. You always brought it! Check out our original interview with Paul way before the UFC – https://artofmma.com/interview-paul-felder/

πŸ‘‰ And just a heads up… Our good friend Bradley “Featherstone” Desir is back in the cage this Friday night at XFC 44 vs LaRue Burley! Tune in Friday night on Fox Sports 2!

PS – Yes, we know ONE has a card. But with Empower delayed, we opted not to make picks for the previously recorded event airing this week.
