Rankings Show: The Colby Covington reckoning, plus our biggest surprises of 2023

The knives are out for Colby Covington, but why have the past few days felt so different than when any other polarizing MMA figure loses?

Old pals Jed Meshew and Damon Martin join co-hosts Shaun Al-Shatti and Alexander K. Lee this week to unpack everything UFC 296. The gang hits the absurdity that was Strickland vs. Dricus du Plessis (around 11:05), as well as the reckoning Covington now faces (around 20:51) and where his third title loss ranks among the great ya-blew-it nights in UFC history. Then, the boys discuss Leon Edwards snatching the No. 3 spot from Jon Jones on the pound-for-pound list (around 1:02:43), Shavkat Rakhmonov’s ferocious ascendance to title contention (around 1:19:49), the biggest rankings surprises of 2023 (around 1:30:58), and much more.
