Between the Links returns ahead of an extremely busy weekend in the combat sports world.

Host Mike Heck is joined by MMA Fighting’s Jed Meshew as he defends his BTL title against fellow MMA journalist Drake Riggs.

This week, the panel will discuss the three big main events—Vadim Nemkov vs. Phil Davis at Bellator 257, Robert Whittaker vs. Kelvin Gastelum at UFC Vegas 24, and the boxing match between Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren—and which fight they would watch if they could only choose one, and their interest level in the Triller event overall, Marvin Vettori’s win over Kevin Holland at UFC Vegas 23 and if he’s earned the rematch with Israel Adesanya, if there’s pressure on Whittaker and Gastelum this weekend, the squabble between Dustin Poirier and Conor McGregor and their trilogy fight being made official for UFC 264, and the low key best fight of the weekend.

Who will leave the virtual BTL arena as the No. 1 contender for the most coveted title in MMA media? Find out at 6 p.m. ET / 3 p.m. PT on Thursday, April 15.
