ONE Championship’s Eddie Alvarez (45:53) previews his upcoming fight against Iuri Lapicus at ONE on TNT 1 on April 7, discusses his long layoff from competition, the crazy changes in the stock market with GameStop, his thoughts on ONE airing on TNT and his opponent, whether of not he would work with AEW to cross promote, and the scheduled boxing match Ben Askren vs. Jake Paul.

UFC light heavyweight Jiri Prochazka (1:13:17) discusses how he reacted to his scheduled Feb. 27 main event with Dominick Reyes being postponed, when he expects it to be rebooked, why he wasn’t overly happy with his octagon debut win over Volkan Oezdemir, Jan Blachowicz’s upcoming title defense against Israel Adesanya, and predicts whether or not he’ll be champion before the end of the year.

Finally, UFC strawweight Kay Hansen (1:34:59) talks her upcoming March 20 matchup with Cheyanne Buys, her much debated decision loss to Cory McKenna in November, dropping out of high school to chase her fighting dream, similarities shared with Buys, how she sees the fight playing out, thoughts on this past weekend in combat sports, and more.
