Between the Links returns in-between a memorable UFC pay-per-view event and a busy weekend ahead in MMA.

Host Mike Heck is joined by MMA Fighting’s Jose Youngs and Alexander K. Lee as they discuss the biggest stories of the week in the world of mixed martial arts.

This week, the panel discusses the Jon Jones’ latest run-in with the law, the police report that was made public, and how they predict the UFC will handle the situation, Alexander Volkanovski’s incredible featherweight title defense against Brian Ortega in the main event of UFC 266 this past Saturday and where he should sit on the current pound-for-pound rankings, Nick Diaz’s return to the octagon in a third-round stoppage loss to Robbie Lawler and where he could go from Saturday, Valentina Shevchenko’s next move, the better main event between Bellator 267, Douglas Lima vs. Michael Page 2, or UFC Vegas 38, Thiago Santos vs. Johnny Walker, and more.
