On Saturday, the superfight of the year goes down when UFC lightweight champion Islam Makhachev puts his title on the line against featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 284. It’s a battle of the top two pound-for-pound fighters in the sport, and so of course, the No Bets Barred boys are here to break the action down.

Co-hosts Conner Burks and Jed Meshew dive right into the action, discussing their excitement level for this mega-event and their thoughts on who wins this historic matchup. Then it’s on to the rest of the card, including their best bets for the co-main interim title fight between Yair Rodriguez and Josh Emmett, a Wolfpack Wager, and a couple of gimmick parlays, including Conor’s Outback Steakhouse Aussie Parlay.
