On the inaugural episode of What the Heck, UFC commentator Jon Anik (3:56) discusses what life has been like amidst a global pandemic, the current status of UFC 249 and Jon Jones’ latest troubles with the law.

Bellator MMA’s Valerie Loureda (27:39) joins the show to talk about her breakout 2019 in the sport, being a big part of Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s preparation for the epic UFC 248 title fight against Zhang Weili and being comfortable in her own skin.
