Between the Links returns 48 hours away from the UFC’s championship triple header this Saturday night in Jacksonville.

Host Mike Heck is joined by MMA Fighting’s Jed Meshew as he looks to avenge his loss from last week’s show to fellow MMA journalist Drake Riggs.

This week, the panel will discuss the fallout of Jake Paul’s first-round TKO win over Ben Askren at this past Saturday’s Triller Fight Club event and if the loss did any major damage to Askren’s legacy, Robert Whittaker’s impressive win over Kelvin Gastelum in the main event of UFC Vegas 24 and how a potential rematch with Israel Adesanya could go, the UFC 261 main event between Kamaru Usman and Jorge Masvidal, which welterweight needs the win more, the strawweight title fight between Zhang Weili and Rose Namajunas, the flyweight title fight between Valentina Shevchenko and Jessica Andrade, the sleeper fight of Saturday’s card, and much more.

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 22.
