Show 106 and the show is rolling full steam ahead this week with the huge announcement from last week. In case you missed the announcement, you can now catch the show officially on ProMMAnow.com (www.prommanow.com).
Yeah that’s right folks we are no longer playing games and the chance for survivors is NONE! We have another stacked show for you this week, but it’s rare when the line-up isn’t loaded like a New York Yankees batting line up.
Our first guest is a man who is no stranger to a microphone and no, we didn’t go get Justin Beiber, hence I said man, not boy, and this isn’t that show.
No, I’m talking about Mauro Ranallo, you might recognize the name and the face from Pride back in the day, as well as Strikeforce fights of the present and future. This man has been around the world covering fights.
It’s an honor to to have one a man like Mauro who has seen some of the most amazing fights in the history of the sport and been in some of the best venues in the world. We will have plenty to talk to Mauro about from his time in Japan with Pride, as well as his time with Strikeforce and now being under Zuffa. We will talk to Mauro about starting his career as a broadcaster at 16, his time in professional wrestling and much more!
One thing you can say about our next guest is that he doesn’t pull punches. Our next guest very well could be the baddest man we have had on the show. Gilbert Yvel will be dropping by. Gilbert is a beast on his feet and has been known for his signature “flying knee” and his incredible power with his limbs. Gilbert is now in Las Vegas teaching at the Throwdown Training facility and any gym gets that much better with a coach/fighter of Gilbert’s credentials.
We will talk to Gilbert about his career, teaching, style and you know I am going to bring up how powerful and damaging the man can be from his guard… So we will see what pointers and suggestions the man can give you listeners.
Our first guest of the second hour is a man that has gold around his waist and one hell of an impressive record to match it. We have on the Tachi Palace 145-pound champ Eddie “The Filipino Phenom” Yagin. Eddie just took on a very tough opponent in Joe Soto. He has had some serious wars in his career and if you caught his battle against Diego Saraiva, you know the man has heart and will keep coming regardless of what you throw at him. We will talk to The Filipino Phenom about winning the belt, his future plans, and you know we will get to know the Phenom like we grew up with the kat.
War Machine a.k.a. Jon Koppenhaver
Our last guest is a man who has made a name for himself already, but I would be worried about the motivation that he has to make an even bigger name for himself. Jon Koppenhaver a.k.a. War Machine is on the show and trust this will be an interview unlike what anyone else has done. We don’t want to talk about the past we want to talk about the future.
Jon is looking to get back into the world of MMA and start smashing kats again. So just know that we will have plenty to talk to him about, including his future in the sport, his goals, long term and immediately, and of course you know this will be one not to miss.
