Bellator made big news on Tuesday when they announced former UFC commentator Mike Goldberg along with former PRIDE, WWE, Glory and current Showtime boxing commentator Mauro Ranallo had signed with their organization. Sean Grande, on the other hand, is out. Is this good for the company? Will this meaningfully change things? What can we expect from both Goldberg and Ranallo? We'll delve into this territory.

Plus, we're coming off of UFC Auckland, heading for UFC Singapore. There's not a whole lot to breakdown with either, but the rest of the summer is coming together. It's not the best summer the sport's ever seen, but it's not the worst. We'll go into the good, bad and ugly of the summer season.

UFC President Dana White has responded to Demetrious Johnson, suggesting he's not the top pound-for-pound best, but that Conor McGregor is. What's that all about? We'll discuss.
