After a two month hiatus, Calvin and Brandon are back for another episode of the Sharp Edges podcast. It’s been a long two months but we finally have some live sports action this weekend in the United States as the UFC is set to return on May 9th.
This week’s episode starts off with some talk about the current Coronavirus issue. Brandon has been doing some extensive research over the past couple of months and gives his input on how he feels the Coronavirus situation will pan out. Calvin, on the other hand, just hopes that sports will get back to normal sooner rather than later.
Taking a look at the first live sporting event in the United States in nearly two months, Calvin and Brandon go through every match set on the UFC 249 card. Even the early prelim fights have some solid matches, one of which really intrigues Brandon.
Heading into the second wave of prelims, the card starts to get stacked. Brandon’s favorite pick of the card was set for the prelim fights. However, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza tested positive for Coronavirus shortly after the podcast was recorded. Therefore, his match with Uriah Hall has been canceled.
Once we get to the main card, we are treated with two title fights. However, Calvin’s favorite fight of the entire card isn’t one of those title fights. Instead, Calvin is excited to see an all-out brawl between two of the biggest hitters in MMA history when Francis Ngannou takes on Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
After giving out their favorite picks of the entire UFC 249 event, Calvin and Brandon take a quick look ahead to UFC Fight Night: Smith vs Teixeira which will take place on Wednesday, May 13th. Listen in to see who you should be betting on this weekend and next week. Come back next Friday as Calvin and Brandon will have more updated talks on the Coronavirus and discuss next weekend’s UFC event.
