Pollock and Bohn chat about the main event, the sad nature of the fight, the future of Golden Boy MMA, how this promotion can continue, the production of the first broadcast, a rundown of the undercard results, and predictions on how this performed on pay-per-view.

*Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz
*Deron Winn vs. Tom Lawlor
*Gleison Tibau vs. Efrain Escudero
*Ricky Palacios vs. Walel Watson
*Albert Morales vs. James Barnes
*Jay Silva vs. Oscar Cota
I just finish watching the fight, this was one of the worst fight I saw in a long time. Nothing happened for most of the first round and when something finally happened, Chuck get hit with 3 punch and went down.
I get that bringing back those legends do help these smaller promotion but I feel this trend should stop before one of them gets killed in a fight. Chuck looked horrible and had no business in the octagon and tito didn’t look better but at less he won and save himself from being humiliated.
