Episode Info: Two top-ranked Middleweights staked their claim for the right to fight for UFC gold; Luke Rockhold was completely dominant against the legendary Lyoto Machida, and Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza took care of business swiftly and decisively against fill-in opponent Chris Camozzi. Jacare went into the card as the top-ranked Middleweight (behind champion Chris Weidman), and Rockhold leapfrogged him in the rankings with the bigger resumé-building victory. So who should fight for the title? Can Jacare lose his title shot, despite winning yet another UFC fight? But how can one ignore Rockhold's impressive victories over bigger names? The UFC rankers and matchmakers have a mess on their hands in the supremely talented Middleweight division. Meanwhile, young rising stars Max Holloway and Paige VanZant introduced themselves to the MMA world in spectacular fashion with dominant performances against tough opponents. Continuing the trend of uncovering hidden gems and young, up-and-coming title contenders, Beneil Dariush, Ovince St. Preux, Gian Villante, Aljimain Sterling and Tim Means all won big and burst onto the scene in their respective divisions. And the legend of Diego Brandao continues to grow, as does the the affection that the Fight Focus boys have for the hyperactive Featherweight; this time, Brandao looks great in his one-round fight, but it was his quirky reaction to his opponent's injury that illustrates the personality that the Fight Focus has come to adore. All that and more on the latest episode of the MMA Fight Focus podcast!
