No fights last weekend, but Jim and Matt are back to business to talk to two fighters with huge fights: Cory Sandhagen, who just booked Frankie Edgar in Raleigh in January, and Chase Hooper, who's making his UFC debut at UFC 245.

First, 20-year-old featherweight Chase Hooper talks about how he got into UFC, navigating his way through a development deal, and The Mandalorian.

Then, Jim and Matt talk about the rumored Jones-Reyes fight, Luke Rockhold's next steps, and Jimmy tells an amazing story about hanging with Robert Deniro and Christopher Walken in the making of The Irishman.

Finally, #3 Bantamweight Cory Sandhagen joins to talk about his fight with Frankie Edgar, his blossoming career as a podcaster himself, why all the legends are moving down in weight, and what's in store for Henry Cejudo, Aljamain Sterling and the rest of the bantamweight division.
