UFC 226 AfterMMAth (The Paul Heyman Edition)

UFC226 showed us how this organization can generate a very exciting, touching moment, Make history, and within moments cheapen it with a ridiculous, unnecessary and unwarranted “segment”, WWE style.

Let’s discuss my picks quickly and then see if we can talk about a thing or two in general. No promises.
