In an eventful weekend of combat sports, UFC 289 delivered beyond expectations, while Sunday’s boxing card headlined by Floyd Mayweather fell short of the mark. Beyond the on-field action, the post-main event chaos between Mayweather and John Gotti III’s teams added to the disappointment.

Joining the latest episode of Heck of a Morning, MMA Hook’s Mike Heck shares his reactions to UFC 289, highlighting the remarkable victories of Amanda Nunes, who has now retired, and Charles Oliveira, who defeated Beneil Dariush in the co-main event. However, the focus also shifts to the “embarrassing” Mayweather vs. Gotti III boxing spectacle. Furthermore, listener questions cover a range of topics, including the debate on the women’s GOAT (Greatest of All Time) now that Nunes has stepped away, Nunes’ ranking compared to Bellator champion Cris Cyborg, the possibility of Oliveira securing a rematch with Islam Makhachev, potential contenders for Oliveira’s lightweight title, the vacant UFC women’s bantamweight division, and more.
