Fighter vs. Writer: Alan Jouban breaks down everything UFC 280; Matt Brown previews Jake Paul vs. Anderson Silva


After an eventful weekend at UFC 280, Alan Juban joins the latest episode Fighter vs Writer to help destroy everything that has unfolded in Abu Dhabi.

Zhuban, who worked as an analyst on the broadcast team last Saturday, looks back on Islam Makhachev’s dominating performance as he defeated Charles Oliveira to become the UFC lightweight champion, and shares his thoughts on Aljamain Sterling’s victory over T.J. Dillashaw.

Zhuban also discusses Sean O’Malley’s controversial victory over Petr Yan and whether he should get his next title shot over post-retirement former champion Henry Cejudo.

Also on this week’s show, Matt Brown joins the podcast to help announce the upcoming boxing match between Jake Paul and Anderson Silva.

While Paul has largely outperformed the competition at this point in his career, Silva presents by far the toughest challenge to date.

But which Silva will appear?

Will the same Silva who defeated Julio Cesar Chavez Jr enter the ring with Paul, or will the legendary Brazilian decide to play with his food, as he did in many past fights that cost him money?

Hear what Brown has to say about the match as he gives his prediction for the fight.

All this and more in the latest issue. Fighter vs Writer!
