Marvin Vettori defeated Paulo Costa in the main event of UFC Vegas 41 in one of the best fights of 2021, but was Costa’s performance was enough to negate the weight missing shenanigans from the week? That question, along with what is next for both Costa and Vettori are among topics discussed this week.

In addition, the panel talks Wednesday’s PFL Championship event and some of the big storylines to come out of it, along with improvements the promotion can make to make their product as interesting and fun as possible, Kayla Harrison’s next move following another $1 million championship victory, the UFC 267 main event between Jan Blachowicz and Glover Teixeira, how risky taking the interim bantamweight title fight against Petr Yan could be for Cory Sandhagen in the long run, and more.

Host Mike Heck is joined by MMA Fighting’s Jed Meshew to discuss those topics, and also reveals the first-round matchups for the upcoming BTL championship tournament on Between the Links.
