Welcome to “Spinning Back Clique,” MMA Junkie’s weekly show that takes a quick spin through the biggest topics in mixed martial arts. This week, host John Morgan is joined by panelists “Gorgeous” George Garcia from MMA Junkie Radio, as well as MMA Junkie’s Mike Bohn and Danny Segura. Let’s get into it!

SHOW TOPICS:

Former UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway had a sensational performance Saturday against Calvin Kattar in the main event of UFC on ABC 1. We know Holloway has already lost to current titleholder Alexander Volkanovski twice, but can you really deny “Blessed” another crack at the crown? Dana White’s promised big announcement on Khabib Nurmagomedov‘s decision turned out to be a bit of a dud

. Will Nurmagomedov stay retired, or will someone’s performance at UFC 257 coax him to return? The gigantic UFC 257 main event between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier is upon us. Simple question: How does this go? Nate Diaz has been out of action for more than a year. But it looks like he’ll be back sometime in 2021, and back at lightweight, against a mystery opponent for now. Who do you think that will be? Jon Jones is looking jacked as he gets ready to go up to heavyweight. When push comes to shove, how well do you think the longtime former UFC light heavyweight champion will fare at 265 pounds?

For answers to all of those questions, watch Episode 63 of “Spinning Back Clique” above.
