In a special live edition of Sportsnaut’s Scrap Report, the top combat sports podcast today offers up some bold UFC 295 predictions, takes a look at the Jake Paul fight news, and other big stories from the fight game this week.
This latest edition of the Scrap Report kicks off at 6 PM ET/3 PM PT and will feature UFC 295 predictions from hosts and fight sports experts Jason Burgos and Anthony Walker. However, before they delve into the top scraps from the card inside New York’s Madison Square Garden, they will look at a few other notable stories for the week in fight sports.
On Wednesday, after much speculation, combat sports disruptor and YouTube personality Jake Paul revealed his opponent for his return to the ring in December, and it is a fighter who is a relative unknown — especially compared to the Ohio native’s previous foes. Burgos and Walker take a look at whether the booking is too much of a high-risk, low-reward proposition for “Problem Child.”

Also this week, the UFC announced the headliners for their first three pay-per-view events in 2024, which are UFC 297, UFC 298, and UFC 299. The bouts will feature some of the promotion’s most popular stars, like Sean O’Malley and Alexander Volkanovski, and include belts being on the line. On this week’s podcast, our hosts will debate which of the trio of main events is really worth your time and hard-earned money.
Walker and Burgos also look at the news about the other superstar fighter who almost stepped in to face Islam Makhachev on short notice at UFC 294, who should be next in line for the winner of the UFC 295 main event between Tom Aspinall and Sergei Pavlovich, plus much more.
