Spinning Back Clique LIVE: Grasso-Shevchenko 2 controversy, UFC/WWE merger, more

Check out this week’s “Spinning Back Clique,” MMA Junkie’s weekly live show that takes a spin through the biggest topics in mixed martial arts, with a new special start time of 11 a.m. ET, which will lead straight into our live-streamed coverage of the Dana White’s Contender Series 63 weigh-ins in Las Vegas.

This week’s panel of Farah Hannoun, Brian “Goze” Garcia and Mike Bohn, as well as special guest Nick Tylwalk, will join host “Gorgeous” George Garcia live at 11 a.m. ET (8 a.m. PT) to discuss and debate:

  • Alexa Grasso’s draw with Valentina Shevchenko and the controversial scorecard that led to it.

  • Noche UFC seemed to be a successful themed event for the promotion. Should those happen more often?

  • Noche UFC wasn’t perfect, including a bad stoppage by Chris Tognoni that led to replay and a no contest. Was the issue handled right?

  • Former UFC bantamweight champion Aljamain Sterling has been trying to make a case for a rematch with new champ Sean O'Malley. Does he have a shot?

  • The UFC and WWE now are under the same parent umbrella, TKO, which became a publicly traded company this past week. Wrestling Junkie’s Nick Tylwalk will help us navigate the merger and who has more to gain.

  • And much more …
