The On-Demand Replay of Pro MMA Radio Episode 204 is ready now and available for our listeners 24/7. MMA Mania’s Jesse Holland joined Pep to recap UFC 147 and FX 4 and talk Anderson Silva’s recent explosions as we move toward UFC 148.
Ed Soares came in and gave us the lowdown on his stable of fighters, Anderson Silva, Antonio Nogueira, Lyoto Machida and Paulo Filho in his first radio interview after Anderson’s dominant performance at UFC Fight Night 14. Would Anderson take a fight with 205 champ, Forrest Griffin? Will he continue at 205? Could he ever fight at heavyweight? The answers may surprise you. Was Nogueira disrespected by Randy’s refusal to fight him? How did he get along with Mir while they filmed the new season of The Ultimate Fighter? We also covered Paulo’s comeback, Rampage’s current struggles and Lyoto’s path to a title and fighters who duck Anderson and Lyoto. Ed also discussed how he came to own Sinister Brand clothing…interesting story. Click on the link to check out their latest styles.
FightHype’s Percy Crawford came in and broke down his experience covering Affliction: Banned and whether they can compete with the UFC. Then Percy flipped the script and questioned me about the UFC event and who impressed and who disappointed.
