So after Saturday’s UFC 250 event in Las Vegas, who took advantage of his time at the microphone? See below for this week’s Callout collection – and how realistic each is.

First, let’s take a look at the preliminary map …
Wants to fight: Ryan Hall or Bryce Mitchell
The legend: “I want to come back quickly, I want to come back soon. I want to fight on “Fight Island”. We already know the location – they already decided it was in Abu Dhabi – so the plan is to go there and fight again soon, and hopefully against a good guy. I gave two names: Bryce Mitchell and Ryan Hall, two grapplers. Ryan Hall is even ranked – it would be my first choice. But if he doesn’t want it, I know Mitchell is a badass (and) he doesn’t run from a challenger. I’m a challenger, so let’s go. ”
Reality: Herbert Burns may have started his UFC career with a knockout, but he returned to his struggling roots to score an impressive victory against Evan Dunham at UFC 250 and his post-fight suggestions for his next one. opponent have shown where his forces are.
Burns has very cleverly called a pair of grapplers that few people are ready to take on at the moment, which should give him a big chance to land one of them in his next fight. Mitchell will take on anyone and would have no qualms about testing his own impressive ground game against the Brazilian ace. But the fight that intrigues me the most is the Hall fight. The Wizard’s very precise ground skill set made him a staunch opponent at 145 pounds, which makes Burns’ call even more interesting.
Both clashes seem like valid options for Burns, but the Hall fight offers a fight against a ranked opposition and gives “The Blaze” the chance to catapult itself to the title conflict at 145 pounds while his older brother Gilbert is trying to win gold at 170. Two The burden of the Burns brothers’ title over a long period would certainly be an interesting tale, so sending Herbert to the quickest route could have some promotional sense here.
