Show 131 is an MMA smorgasbord. Kicking things off is a man who is currently the featherweight champion of the biggest and longest running MMA promotion in Mexico, Combate Extremo. He also trains and fights out of the Freestyle Fighting Academy which is one of the only MMA schools that has had four separate instructors qualify to compete in the ADCC’s.
Shah Bobonis is dropping in to chop it up about his current title defense bout coming up, his current stage of his career, and much more. While you wait for Sunday to roll around get over to the website www.fisttacuff.com and check out Shah’s Pro Point of View Blog where he talks the latest fights, his thoughts on the sport, and much more! Follow Shah on twitter @shahbobonis.
Our next guest is getting ready to step into the Bellator Cage in the first round of the season six lightweight tourney. JJ Ambrose is getting ready to take on Brent Weedman and looking to extend his win streak to eight. We will talk to JJ about the tournament, his opponent and the other fighters he could face later in the tourney.
However JJ has a lot of interesting background from his boxing and BJJ training (he’s a brown belt), training in Thailand and his adventures over there. We will talk the stand up side of the sport with JJ as well as his time on the mats, don’t miss it and make sure to follow JJ on twitter @SuperJJAmbrose.
Our next guest is not stranger to a microphone as he talks in one every Friday night for Bellator. He’s also no stranger to the cage, I’m talking about the Meeen Bean Manny Rodriguez. We have plenty to talk with Manny about from this year’s Bellator schedule, previous seasons, his time in the cage, being a bail agent, and whatever else you guys want to chop it up about.
Trust me I’m sure Manny can carry this interview on his own, but with Denny and Anton on the mic there will be no shortage of things to talk about. Check Manny out on Friday nights and follow him on twitter @manny_mma.
Eric Del Fierro
Last on the show is a man known to many as simply Coach, no not Greg Jackson but this man has a star studded team just the same! It’s Coach Eric Del Fierro. That’s right the head coach of Alliance is stopping in to talk all things MMA.
Alliance has built itself up to be one of the best gyms in the nation and we will talk to Coach E about how he helped build that, the roster of fighters he has under him at Alliance, how life has changed in the last 3 years coach for him, coaching the champ, and of course having to stare at Urijah Faber all day as well as seeing him across the cage from Dom at the end of the season. This is an interview that is going to be TUF to squeeze into 30 minutes but we are gonna try. Follow Eric on twitter @EricDelFierro.
