The format of the show:

  • Check out the “worries” of the past few weeks while offering reactions to fights from this event.
  • Announce each fight on the next card and quickly comment on which fights are “HOT” and which fights are “NOT” – indicating whether or not the fight is important to them. (This is based on several criteria including relevance to the sport as a whole).

This format of “caring” or “not caring” about each fight is aimed at our self-identified “casual MMA fans” audience. We strive to take you to fights that impact rankings, title shots, have significant meaning, or are sure to be exciting fights that you need to see on TV. This saves you the boredom of seeing every fight on every map – or perhaps missing out on something you might otherwise have skipped.
