“The Man with the Shirt” can now add Rear-Naked Choke Radio to his resume.

Jeff Wagenheim (@JeffWagenheim), MMA writer for Sports Illustrated and the Washington Post, as well as a mainstay on The MMA Beat, joined Jason Kelly (@JayKellyMMA) and Joe Rizzo (@rearnakedchoke) to guide us on a reflective journey through the UFC tripleheader with the power of his signature Hawaiian shirt.

The trio discussed Conor McGregor’s 13-second knockout victory over Jose Aldo in UFC 194’s main event to become the new featherweight champ, the night’s co-main event that showcased Luke Rockhold defeating Chris Weidman to win the 185-pound title and other bouts from the weekend’s record-breaking show.

‘Wags,’ Kelly and Rizzo also highlighted the cards that preceded UFC 194, UFC Fight Night 80: Namajunas vs. VanZant and The Ultimate Fighter 22 Finale: Team McGregor vs. Team Faber.

Along with revisiting the 34 UFC fights that took place over a three-day period, the trio looked at what’s next for the weekend’s winners and losers.
