  • Longtime guy Asks: JR if you were an NBA GM and you, and your team of evaluators ran a risk assessment on the drafting of Lonzo Ball, as good as he is....is it worth all that comes with it? Thanks as always
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Some teams will obviously think that Lonzo's Daddy's baggage is worth it. Those issues can be easily dealt with.

  • Robertmcq Asks: Is the ufc slowly creeping more towards the entertainment side of sports? Seems like it's about selling ppv's by using guys that sell and not necessarily the champ vs number one contender Anymore
    J.R.'s Answer:

    UFC is gong through a transition period with new ownership at the helm. Not unlike WWE, UFC is challenged to develop new stars tht will 'move the needle.'

  • jakefromstatefarm_116 Asks: JR, how much you wanna bet that Jones-Cormier will be called off at the last minute yet again? All this hype, and yet no delivery. I am looking at two possible scenarios that could happen. Either Jones will get popped once again or DC will get an injury. And also, how many more chances will UFC give Jones. At least there should be tough consequences.
    J.R.'s Answer:

    I hope that you are wrong. U/FC really needs Jones right now.

  • Robertmcq Asks: With the UFC hiring a strength coach for their complex (sound familiar ?) do you think the ufc should just pay the young fighters living wages and in turn start their own performance center? My real question is will these kill the team/gym concept that UFC fighters use? I would think it would.
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Fighter camps aren't going away. This is a good move for UFC as any thing that they can do to help make their fighter's lives better, the better.

    J.R.'s Answer:

    I've heard them on occasion and they seem to do a nice job.

  • Ahmed Chowdhury Asks: College Football is in 5 months, and I have a question for you which is related to Heisman Trophy. There are only 8 players in College Football who are running to become a Heisman Trophy winner for next season. These 8 players are, Sam Darnold, JT Barrett, Lamar Jackson, Mason Rudolph, Mike Webber, Shane Buechle, Quinton Flowers, and Wilton Speight. My question is, who is your pick to win the Heisman Trophy? I have Lamar Jackson to win. Because there are no players since Archie Manning, who won the back to back Heisman Trophy. Please Answer Both Of My Questions. Thanks. Have A Great Weekend.
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Firstly, there are no 'official' Heisman Trophy candidates as any school can create a campaign to promtoe their athletes in the Heisman race. Baker Mayfield is one of the leading candidates based on how he's fared the past two years. Your only eight players statement is factually inaccurate

  • Ahmed Chowdhury Asks: In your opinion, do you think Russell Westbrook deserves to win the NBA MVP? I picked Lebron James to win. However, I think we should have a co NBA MVP, which is James Harden, and Russell Westbrook. Thanks.
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Westbrook is the clear cut winner IMO of the NBA MVP. If he's not then something is drastically wrong with the system. It's not even close.

  • jakefromstatefarm_116 Asks: Jim, thank you so much for taking questions even though that these are tough times. God bless you and Jan. I just wanna ask how often you watch UFC in recently weeks and what do you think about Cormier and Johnson this Saturday?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    Deep waters for DC to survive but he;s who I'm pulling for without question.

  • Jeremy Samples Asks: Looking forward to attending both Orlando Ringside shows! Are your BBQ products available at the shows? Also, with Baseball season coming up, do you follow the sport? Any favorite teams?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    We hope to have some products on sale at our Orlando shows but that;s still a bit up in the air. I generally tag into baseball during the playoffs so I don;t have a dog nt the hunt right now.

  • Hotty Toddy Asks: Your thoughts on GSP making his return to UFC? Who would like to see him in the Octagon with?
    J.R.'s Answer:

    UFC, like WWE, needs all the main event attractions that they can muster so getting GSP back is huge. I;d love to see him fight Bisping or Nick Diaz.
