Show 127 and we kick things off with a lady who plans to bring it February 17 at Fight Time Promotions. Jessica Aguilar is taking on Lil Patricia Vidonic and looking to extend her three fight win streak to 4. With a record of 12-4 and almost 6 years in the sport Jessica is no rookie to the world of MMA. Not only does she have all that experience, she has a name with the fans.
2010 and 2011 saw Jessica pick up awards from the Women’s MMA Awards (Fan favorite in 2010 and Female Flyweight in 11.) Trust me we will have plenty to talk about from being a woman in MMA, training, Diet, and her upcoming fight against Lil P. You can follow Jessica on twitter at @JagAtt.
Our next guest comes from Croatia and is what some are calling a new force in the UFC Heavyweight Division, Stipe Miocic. Stipe is set to face Philip De Fries Feb 15 at UFC on Fuel TV 1. Stipe has been dominating his opponents and looks to walk out of the octagon undefeated after this fight.
He dominated his first five opponents and won his sixth fight by submission. Just so you know the man went the distance with Joey Beltran and won, that’s a task for anyone making his UFC debut. Stipe also was a Division 1 wrestler, Golden Gloves Champ, and played baseball… (Hell I even heard the kid has a decent stick). We have plenty to talk to Stipe about from training with Joey, being in San Diego to train, the UFC, other sports and what drove him this way and much more. Follow Stipe on twitter at @smiocic.
Second hour kicks off with a man who’s comfortable up in the shop, I mean he has been here a few times and the man is fast, like a Gazelle. Yep Walel “The Gazelle” Watson is ready to drop back in and chop it up. Walel is set to take on T.J. Dillashaw in what should be an explosive fight on the UFC on Fuel TV 1 card. You know I got plenty to hit Walel with from his last fight and if he felt he won, losing on the big stage and how it motivates a guy to get back in the cage, his upcoming fight, and you know we got to talk about Team Hurricane Awesome.
Walel always brings it every time he is on the show and this time will be no different. Walel is looking to get back on track in the winners column which usually means a big finish in his next fight back. I am sure he’s ready and I hope you listeners are ready for 30 minutes with The Gazelle. Follow Walel on twitter @135Gazelle.
