This week we kick things off with a guest who will want to talk a lot of MMA. I am sure we will talk everything from the amateur side of the sport to the big leagues of the UFC. Cyrus Fees from MMA: Inside The Cage is stopping by to talk a little about his show and his love for MMA. With plenty of things going on this week from the announcement of Diaz vs. Henderson, to Anderson Silva being out for the remainder of 2012, and even two champs not wanting to defend the interim belt until they fight the real champs. Phone lines will be open all segment and I’m sure Cyrus, Denny, and I will have plenty to make you pick up the phone and call in.
The rest of the show we will be thinking and talking all Bellator. Ryan Martinez isn’t your typical MMA story. Don’t get me wrong he has the starting of most MMA stars, as a senior in high school he was ranked #3 in the world. After high school the man’s story changes a little. I won’t spill all the beans on this one, but lets just say Ryan also graduated from the school of hard knocks! We will talk to Ryan about his time on the mat in high school and what led him to stray from college and ultimately what changed his life. This is an interview that I am super stoked to be a part of, simply because this has to rank in the top ten best MMA stories in my opinion. Ryan is set to make his Bellator Debut August 24 against Mike Wessel. We will talk his upcoming fight, where he is at with his career, and his future goals. Make sure to follow Ryan on twitter @970King and get ready to have a new favorite fighter after you hear this story!
#DubStepSucks, that’s right I said it and you better be ready to hear it all through this interview as Manny “#DubStepSucks” Rodriguez steps into the shop for another entertaining go around. Manny is not only one of the men calling the action for Bellator, but he is also the former King Of The Cage Heavyweight World Champ, and he coaches Dirty Boxing at Alliance. Okay so I know he sounds like a man who does it all, but he doesn’t dance to DubStep, EVER! I can’t wait to talk to Manny about this year in Bellator, who he thinks you should keep a close eye on and of course we will talk what he has going on outside of MMA. If you aren’t following Manny on twitter yet, get over to his page @Manny_MMA and let him know #DubStepSucks
