Between the Links, Live Edition: Rob Font’s big win at UFC Vegas 27, Carla Esparza’s title hopes, Jon Jones, more

Between the Links returns for a special live edition ahead of a UFC-and-Bellator-less weekend.

Host Mike Heck is joined by interim BTL champion, MMA Fighting’s Jed Meshew, as he faces off against MMA journalist, and host of Best Camp of My Life, Fernanda Prates.

This week, the panel will discuss what they learned from Rob Font’s dominant decision win in the main event of UFC Vegas 27 over Cody Garbrandt and where both fighters go from here, and Carla Esparza clearly earning herself a strawweight title shot (but will she actually get it?). Also, they will react to another busy week in the life of Jon Jones, which includes bringing on a new “advisor,” the upcoming fight between Max Holloway and Yair Rodriguez on July 17, Cris Cyborg’s successful title defense at Bellator 259, and more.

Who will leave the virtual BTL arena with the most coveted title in MMA media? Find out at 6 p.m. ET / 3 p.m. PT on Thursday, May 27.

Audio-only versions of the podcast can be found on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, iHeartRadio, Stitcher and YouTube.
