Heck of a Morning: What should headline UFC 282 and UFC 283?


With glaring holes in the main event slots for December’s UFC 282 and January’s UFC 283 events currently, what fights could fill those slots — especially with so much lack of clarity in the heavyweight division?

On a brand new edition of Heck of a Morning Mike Heck from MMA Fighting answers listener questions on what could be the headliner for those two PPV events and how Jon Jones plays into it. Also, Mike Heck discusses what might happen if Francis Ngannou does not resign with UFC. Additionally, listener topics include Khamzat Chimaev’s next move, where Eddie Alvarez could end up after parting ways with ONE, the stacked UFC 280 lineup in October, the loaded up weekend slate with upcoming events from the UFC, Bellator, ONE, BKFC, and more, what would be one singular main card to put together from those, some of the best women’s fights of all-time, and more.

You can listen live to Heck of a Morning Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 10 a.m. ET at the MMA Fighting Twitter Spaces.
