It’s show 137 and we are kicking things off with a man who doesn’t pull punches, or slaps for that matter. Myron Dennis is dropping in on the shop to talk his XFL light heavyweight title defense against Matt Foster, June 1st in Tulsa at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. I don’t know Myron, but I do know that if you headbutt the man at weigh-ins he will slap you like you stole something (which we have to talk about)!
I can’t wait to talk to Myron about his past playing football for Southern Nazarene University, how he got into the sport, and everything that lays in front of him. From what I’ve seen this guy should be a live-wire on the show and you know we love em Live!!! Make sure to follow Myron on twitter @MyronTheFuture
Our next guest is a lady I have a ton of respect for and just so you know she doesn’t fight, she protects the fighters. Kim Winslow is back and it’s time to put the gloves on (The black rubber ones). Kim is still the only female ref on the big stage and I can’t wait to talk this fact with her. Kim has an amazing past from how she got into the ref game, her martial arts experience, and plenty more to talk about.
Kim has one of the toughest jobs out there and just for the record she isn’t too worried about your opinion but more with the fighters’ safety. Trust me you don’t want to miss the knowledge of the sport that Mrs. Winslow brings, you may not have liked her calls but trust me she isn’t in the business for fame, she’s in it for the love of the sport and to keep the guys and gals you root for safe.
At first they said our next guest was at a disadvantage and shouldn’t be allowed to fight, now after going 7-0 people are saying he has an advantage. If you don’t know, now you do, Notorious Nick Newell is back to talk shop! Nick is an amazing athlete who has no need for sympathy, cause if you give it to him he might just put you to sleep.
Nick just got done fighting a fight that shouldn’t be dubbed anything but a war. It was a war he walked away winning with a majority decision on nationally televised HDNet for XFC. I haven’t heard what’s next for Nick but whatever it is his opponent better be ready. We will talk to Nick about the new found fame, dealing with the band wagon flow, and much more. Nick is a great interview and we’re glad to have him back on the show. Make sure to follow Nick on twitter @NotoriousNewell
Wilson Reis is wrapping things up on the show and he’s here to talk a little about his time on this season of The Ultimate Fighter. If you haven’t been watching Wilson has been helping out friend and main coach Dominick Cruz. We will talk to Wilson about being on the show as a coach, having cameras around non-stop, how he is enjoying Vegas and much more. This season is still going so you know we have plenty to talk about, but we also want to talk about Wilson and him getting back to his winning ways.
Wilson just snatched up a win in Brazil and we will talk to him about his future and what is next for the BJJ BlackBelt. Phone lines will be open for all your TUF questions and anything you would like to talk to Wilson about. Make sure before the show that you head over to twitter and follow Wilson @Wilsonreis7
