Between the Links returns with a historic matchup.

Host Mike Heck is joined by MMA Fighting’s Jed Meshew and Alexander K. Lee as they battle each other and journalist E. Spencer Kyte in a special triple threat rules matchup on the program.

This week, the panelists react to Ciryl Gane’s impressive third-round TKO stoppage win over Derrick Lewis in the main event of UFC 265 to become interim heavyweight champion and give their thoughts on the future unification bout between Gane and Francis Ngannou, discuss Jose Aldo and Vicente Luque’s outstanding performances on Saturday and what should be next for both fighters, the recently confirmed boxing match between former UFC champions Anderson Silva and Tito Ortiz at Triller Fight Club’s Sept. 11 event, Bellator and the PFL’s events on Friday and what fight stands out above the rest on both cards, and more.

Plus, special guest Ariel Helwani joins the show to judge the knockout round and crown a winner.
