The Fighter vs. The Writer returns post-UFC 300 with Alan Jouban and MMA Fighting senior reporter Damon Martin reacting to the biggest moments from the historic card. While it wasn’t the main event, Max Holloway still stole the show after he demolished Justin Gaethje with a last-second knockout in the “BMF” title fight. The spectacular finish has been replayed millions of times already but is that the greatest moment in UFC history? Also who should be next for Holloway following this momentous win? We’ll also discuss Alex Pereira beating his fifth UFC champion in only eight fights as he continues his ridiculous run since transitioning from kickboxing to MMA. What’s next for Pereira and should he actually consider heavyweight? Plus we’ll talk about Kayla Harrison’s unbelievable debut where she took out former champion Holly Holm inside two rounds. With the win has Harrison already jumped to the front of the line for a title shot against Raquel Pennington? We’ll talk about that and so much more in the aftermath of UFC 300 on the latest episode of The Fighter vs. The Writer!
