- Review previous weeks’ Cares and suggest reactions to hits from that event.
- Each fight is announced on the upcoming card, quickly commenting on which fights are “HOT”, and which fights are “NOT” – indicating whether they are interested in the bout or not. (This is based on various criteria, including relevance to the sport as a whole).
This breakdown of “Caring” or “Not Caring” about each bout is aimed at our listeners who consider themselves “Odd MMA Kids”. We strive to direct you to fights that impact ratings, hold titles, have significant meaning, or are sure to be exciting “must see TV” fights; which saves you the tedium of watching every fight on every card – or maybe miss out on something you could have otherwise.
Here’s a look at what happened…
