The MMA Analysis is FINALLY back to preview UFC Fight Night 106: Belfort vs Gastelum, but first they talked about the terrible fight that was Woodley vs Thompson and then the much better fights that took place at UFC 209 including the ageless wonder with two first names Dan Kelly.

The MMA Analysis did a live fight companion podcast for main card of Bellator 172. Fedor was supposed to fight Matt Mitrione, then just before the card started Bellator announced the fight was off as Mitrione was in the hospital for kidney stones. That put a damper on the night and was a sign to…

This week we’re back in the… studio (?) for a recorded version of The MMA Analysis. Jay, Brad, and Wes tackle UFC on Fox 23, a solid card featuring the 74th women’s main event in a row, and give out a consensus bet for the card. They also briefly talk about the carnage that was…

The MMA Analysis was unable to put out the normal event breakdown this week so they decided to do a live fight companion during the main card of Ultimate Fight Night 103: Rodriguez vs Penn. Listening to the guys was much more entertaining than hearing Daniel Cormier and that’s a guarantee so give it a…

Rather than your typical year-end show, The MMA Analysis spices things up a bit around this time of year. The beginning of the new year gives us the opportunity to look back to 2016 and see all the stupid predictions we’ve made. Then, we go ahead and try to top those. First up, the UFC…

In the final MMA Analysis of 2016, Brad, Shaun, and Wes take a look at the stacked year-end card going down on December 30th. In addition to breaking down the return of Ronda Rousey, they also recap UFC on Fox 22 from last weekend, and talk about the interim lightweight title business going on at…

With the final UFC card before the holidays on the horizon, The MMA Analysis crew was fully prepared to offer a holiday gift of a pair of losing bets as this week’s consensus plays rather than the usual one. However, despite six pick em bouts on this UFC on Fox 22 card Jay, Brad, Shaun,…

This weekend brings us another multi-event slate from the UFC, and The MMA Analysis is here to break everything down for you.

This week, The MMA Analysis tackles the TUF 24 Finale and its “mystery” main event. Lance makes one last hosting gig before he travels to Bulgaria for his experimental surgery, and Brad is the one missing from the podcast instead. You know it can never be a full house when the MMA Analysis goes down….

In a special holdiay edition of the MMA Analysis, the only difference is that all of us Rockstars gather together during the morning instead of the evening. There are still drunks (Brad), people falling asleep (Sean), fraudulent grades (Jay), and the newest co-host Wesley, poor Wesley, who is stuck with the rest of us. Still,…

UFC 205 is so big that Lance Fischel even decided to show up for the podcast for once. It took him a few minutes, naturally, but he got there eventually. With a full crew present, The MMA Analysis gives you a thorough breakdown of UFC 205 from the three title fights at the top of…

It’s Vegas week for The MMA Analysis! If you’re in Sin City anytime from Thursday-Monday, you can meet up with the crew (sans KING Kevin Casey, as he had prior commitments), and help us feed our alcohol and degenerate gambling addictions. Saturday night in particular will be a treat, as some of the worst minds…

The focus of the MMA world for the past few days has been the fantastic card the UFC is putting together for its debut at Madison Square Garden. However, this weekend the Octagon will host a great fight at the top of UFC Fight Night 96, as violence overlord John Lineker squares off with John…

The band is back together for the first time in months, as Lance, Jay, Brad, Sean, and New Shaun are all here to break down UFC Fight Night 95 (aka UFC Fight Night: Cyborg Kills Another Chick). Why they all chose this card to show up to is a mystery, but at least there seem…

After a crazy card took place in Cleveland last weekend, the Octagon’s first trip to Hidalgo has quite the act to follow. It may not be able to match the madness of UFC 203, but with action fighters like Dustin Poirier and Michael Johnson atop the card, it should be able to provide plenty of…

This week the MMA Analysis kicks off with one of the truly great intro songs in the history of all things ever created. Cleveland deserves no less, since the city is sure to befall some horrible tragedies after an unexpectedly good summer. Will the first of those tragedies be Stipe Miocic dropping his UFC heavyweight…

The guys broke down the unbelievable fight that was Conor McGregor vs Nate Diaz as well as touched on a couple of the other fights on UFC 202. Then they previewed UFC on FOX 21 delving deep into a bunch of newcomer’s fight camps and back stories only the way we know how. Lance bullied…

We hope that our longtime listeners will listen to this week’s episode of The MMA Analysis Faithfully, while new listeners will greet us with Open Arms. If not, it’s okay, we can agree to go our Separate Ways. Just remember when it comes to MMA podcasts, only The MMA Analysis can bring it Any Way…

The MMA Analysis is back to take a look at this weekend’s UFC on Fox 20 card. While the main event between Holly Holm and Valentina Shevchenko, and the co-main event featuring Edson Barboza and Gilbert Melendez are getting most of the headlines, once again the MMA world has missed the script. The real battle…

Hey fans, it’s Canada Day long weekend and Independence Day long week weekend, so what better way to spend it than listening to your favorite Canadians and Americans break down some fights. The guys broke down the UFC Fight Night 90 and The Ultimate Fighter 23 Finale cards as well as touched on the sad…

At first it seemed like any other MMA Analysis: We were making fun of Lance not showing up, then breaking down some fights, but then a funny thing happened… LANCE ACTUALLY SHOWED UP! That’s right folks, the forearms feared all around the world of Women’s MMA are back! In honor of this momentous occasion, we…

With no UFC upcoming this weekend, Jay, Brad, and New Shaun (Lance has been fired, and Old Sean is back on probation) were able to dive deep into UFC 199 to recap the most entertaining MMA event of 2016. Some of the big moments covered include Michael Bisping’s shocking win, Dan Henderson’s brutal KO, and…

With Lance celebrating the birth of his second child, Sean decided to rejoin the podcast for once. On a weekend where the Fox card features some of the greatest MMA Analysis official nicknames in the sport, this one still turned out alright without our usual host.

This week is a big one for The MMA Analysis. Not only is the patron saint of the podcast fighting this weekend, but Old Sean returns from the dead to break down this most important of bouts. There are also a pair of consensus bets dished out, and some talk about recent MMA news since…

This weekend, the UFC is putting a phenomenal fight on free TV, so the MMA Analysis figured it would follow suit with a special free edition of the show covering UFC Fight Night 81. Oh, and if you have yet to pay for all of those episodes you listened to thus far, fear not, the…

The MMA Analysis had its regular host back this week as Lance just could not miss breaking down the epic UFC card this weekend in South Korea. In true union fashion however, one of the co-hosts had to take the night off, and this week the roulette wheel landed on Jay, while Sean remains missing…

Holly Holm pulled off one of the biggest upsets in MMA history on Saturday night, and the MMA Analysis spends almost as much time discussing that single result as breaking down the upcoming UFC Fight Night 78 card. Jay, Brad, and Shaun still manage to find some time to sneak in a consensus bet for…

The MMA Analysis is back to recap Bellator 145 and UFC Fight Night 77. The guys discussed the hardest hitters in each division and then depressingly broke down UFC 193 with the lone bright spot being the American hero Jared Rosholt.

After a week off, the MMA Analysis is back to break down UFC Fight Night 77. However, more importantly, Lance and Brad had a golden opportunity to make fun of Jay’s boyfriend Khabib, and do so at length. Unfortunately, Sean was not around to talk about his boyfriend Magnymedov, but you can’t always get what…

UFC 192 leads into a bit of a lull period for the UFC, but there are no off weeks for The MMA Analysis… except maybe next week, which we will likely take off because there will not be much to talk about. There was plenty to discuss from this past weekend however, as UFC 192…

For everything Bellator Not-So-Dynamite lacked in entertainment, last week’s MMA Analysis made up for it. This week, your co-hosts were still hungover from the excellent show put on last week, and they only had UFC Fight Night 75 to talk about. The show — which does feature friend of the podcast Kyoji Gucci Mane Horiguchi…

With the choppy UFC schedule of late, the MMA Analysis has been forced to put out some episodes with more filler than normal. However, this week your hosts are back back at what they do best, breaking down fights and making bad jokes. The targets are a plenty too, from the ever-present needling of some…

The UFC event this week will be a big one for the MMA Analysis. Not necessarily because of the fights, but because 3/4s of the podcast will be in Nashville to catch the festivities live. If you end up in the area, stop by and say hi to Lance, Jay, and Brad. You can also…

Sometimes the universe sends you signals. For instance, UFC 190 this Saturday features both Magnymedov and the Headbussa himself, Clint Hester. Combined with the omnipresence of The King, this may make for the greatest podcast intro, and podcast, ever recorded. Or we just break down UFC 190 and give out some bets. Either way, you…

The busiest week of the year for the UFC results in a busy week for the MMA Analysis, but somehow your hosts manage to cram 20 fight breakdowns into just over an hour and a half. There was still plenty of time left over to talk about show favorites Neil Magny and Khabib Nurmagomedov too….

With no major MMA events this week, the MMA Analysis decided to bring one of the co-founders of podcast sponsor Dude Wipes on to the show. Ryan Meegan joins the crew this week to discuss Dude Wipes, their work in MMA, and some of the biggest news in the sport recently. Lance, Jay, Brad, and…

After a weekend of MMA featuring Kimbo Slice and Ken Shamrock, UFC Fight Night 70 and Bellator 139 are left with the unfortunate task of trying to measure up. The whole MMA Analysis crew is back together this week to attempt to inject some fun into a rather bleak set of fights, and with podcast…

With a big weekend in MMA on the horizon, the MMA Analysis crew turns in one of their longest shows ever to break down the historic Kimbo Slice vs. Ken Shamrock bout. Apparently some Ultimate Fighting Champion organization is also putting on a card this weekend, and that gets discussed as well… but Kimbo vs….

With a full crew once again, this episode of The MMA Analysis tackles UFC 188, featuring a UFC heavyweight title headliner.

Usual MMA Analysis host Lance was busy time travelling this week, but Jay, Brad, and Sean more than fill the void with their breakdowns of UFC Fight Night 68.

The MMA Analysis rejoices at the return of Carlos Condit, one of the most entertaining fighters in all of MMA. Lance, Brad, and Old Sean were up to their usual tricks, while backup executive producer New Shaun partially filled in for Jay Primetown. The important thing to remember is that both Condit and Do Bronx…

Perhaps the best MMA event of the year deserves the best MMA podcast around, so the MMA Analysis breaks down UFC 187 on this show. The rare UFC card which is stacked from top to bottom brings a surprising amount of serious fight discussion from your co-hosts, but they still find time to debate the…

Be sure to listen in to this episode of The MMA Analysis early, since UFC Fight Night 66 takes place on Saturday morning from the Philippines. Even without Jay for a portion of the podcast, Lance, Brad, and Sean managed to take way too long breaking down a card that has not seemed to garner…

Finally, the MMA Analysis is back in your lives! Lance, Jay, Brad, and Sean overcome the ghosts of podcasts lost to preview UFC Fight Night 65.

The MMA Analysis makes its triumphant return this week to break down the hotly anticipated UFC 186. Well, maybe the card is not that exciting, but after a week with no show there are people dancing in the streets for the podcast to be back.

With Jay Primetown out a his prom committee meeting, Lance, Brad, and Sean were left to fend for themselves this week on The MMA Analysis. With the quality of the UFC Fight Night 64 card, that resulted in more hijinks than fight breakdowns, although your hosts did manage to sneak a few of their plays…
