Rick Story, Martin Kampmann, and Gerard Roxburgh join the Panel – Friday at 9:00 p.m. ET on HDNet
DALLAS (June 2, 2011) After spending several weeks away from the show, Bas “El Guapo” Rutten returns to “Inside MMA” this Friday night! Rutten was spending time on set, filming the upcoming Kevin James MMA movie, “Here Comes the Boom.”
Welcoming Bas back – alongside Kenny Rice – are two top UFC Welterweights and the director of another upcoming MMA film.
Rick Story joins the panel fresh off the biggest victory of his young career, a unanimous decision victory over Thiago Alves at UFC 130. Story tells the panel what’s next for him, now that he has reeled off six straight victories in the octagon.
Also on the panel is another UFC Welterweight, veteran Martin Kampmann. Kampmann is one of the longest tenured fighters in the UFC with 12 total fights dating back to 2006. After suffering back to back losses to Jake Shields and Diego Sanchez, he’s looking to get back on track at the UFC’s next live event.
Also on the panel, Gerard Roxburgh, the director of the Evan Tanner documentary “I Was Once a Champion.” Roxburgh discusses the making of the film, which is gathering a lot of buzz in anticipation of its premiere later this month at the LA Film Festival.
Plus, Ron Kruck has a complete recap of UFC 130 from Las Vegas, and we take a look at Joe Ellenberger – brother of UFC Welterweight Jake Ellenberger – as he returns to MMA after two year absence due to a rare blood disease.
