Is this the end of Showtime? Where does Anthony Pettis go from here? Kayla Harrison continues to dominate, is it time for tougher competition? Valentin Moldavsky is the new interim Bellator Heavyweight Champion. Is it only temporary until Bader is back? And Ciryl Gane did his thing and showed he is a legit threat in the UFC’s Heavyweight division.
In The Rant this week we aren’t so angry. Instead we take a look at some of the fights and moments of 2021 so far and a look ahead to which fights excite us the next few months.
Side note: Enjoy the huge storm in the background during our recording. Those aren’t lighting effects. Real life in Tampa!
