    Due to a family emergency, we've passed on recording an episode this week.  Instead, we have a repost of our Greatest Fighter Ever episode from 2018. Who is the Pound For Pound Greatest MMA Fighter Of All Time? In order to solve this intricate puzzle, we've seeded the Top 16 fighters and held a single elimination tournament to decide the G.O.A.T. Is it Jon Jones? Fedor Emelianenko? Georges St-Pierre? Anderson Silva? Jose Aldo? Demetrious Johnson? Conor McGregor? Daniel Cormier? By the end of this week's episode (and after a whole lot of arguing), we'll have it all figured out. Hopefully we'll be back next week to recap UFC 267, and preview UFC 268.
