Ahead of an intriguing UFC card on FOX, trainer Ray Longo and’s Jordan Breen joined GPB to help dissect the event at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

Longo, UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman’s trainer, shared his thoughts on the three men potentially next in line at 185 pounds — Luke Rockhold, Lyoto Machida and Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza. Rockhold and Machida meet in Saturday’s main event, while Souza faces late replacement Chris Camozzi. Longo also spoke about Al Iaquinta and why judge Doug Crosby should never be assigned to score fights involving the Long Island, N.Y., trainer’s fighters.

Breen, considered one of the smartest analysts in MMA, talked about what intrigues him about the sport these days, including a long dissection of the upcoming UFC event in Newark.
