What the Heck: Episode 7 with Calvin Kattar, Shane Burgos and Diego Ferreira

On this week’s episode of What the Heck, no. 10 UFC featherweight Shane Burgos (9:10) breaks down a memorable UFC 249 event from a fighter’s perspective, what stuck out to him in Justin Gaethje’s impressive win over Tony Ferguson, plus he talks about teammate Lyman Good testing positive for COVID-19, and expecting to have an announcement soon to compete “next month.”

One of the big winners from UFC 249, Calvin Kattar (26:56) discusses his second-round TKO win over Jeremy Stephens, his opponent missing weight and what the negotiations were like, having one of his coaches test positive during his antibody test, and wanting big opportunities moving forward.

Top-10 UFC lightweight Diego Ferreira (46:06) joins the show to reveal what life has been like during the COVID-19 pandemic — including having to postpone his wedding because of it — what happened with his scheduled fight with Drew Dober after UFC Oklahoma City, why he dislikes Alexander Hernandez, when he’d like to return, and his thoughts on UFC 249.
