FIST-ta-CUFF Radio is back with show 112 and we’re still rolling, but we’re out of control. It’s like someone cut the break lines cause we can’t slow down! This show we have a man who is undefeated in his career, and he’s done it with one arm.
Our second guest is stopping by the shop with a shiny piece of bling from Bellator… Second hour we got our TUF inside man back to talk this last week’s craziness, and a man who is killing people in the cage and destroying mics in the booth is finishing up the show.
Nick “Notorious” Newell
Our first guest is none other than Nick “Notorious” Newell, a man who has amassed an undefeated record in the sport, but what makes this amazing is that Nick has done this with one hand. Nick was born with congenital amputation, which stopped his arm from growing past the elbow. The best part of this story is Nick has been on some Charlie Sheen since birth, cause the dude has been winning his whole life.
Nick not only competed in wrestling in high school, but also in college. We will talk to Nick about how his mother not allowing him to quit wrestling after his first practice has helped get him where he is, fighters being scared to fight him, his goals, having a college degree and more. OH did I mention Nick was set up to make his Shark Fights debut, but had to pull out due to an injury. Just wait you’ll see him soon enough.
Zach “Fun Size” Makovsky
You know I love when we have champs on the show and our second guest is bringing some gold to the shop. Zach “Fun Size” Makovsky is the Bellator 135 lb. champ and he earned the belt. The man not only won the Bellator tourney to become the inaugural Bellator Champ. Nick is on a seven fight win streak and has compiled an impressive record of 13-2.
Zach has fought for Elite XC, M-1 and even in Japan, but I would say he has found his home in Bellator for the time being. We will talk to the champ about fighting in and winning a tournament on the level that Bellator is. How his life has changed since becoming the champ, the current state of his division, how he got his nickname and plenty of other things. Just be ready for a great interview!
Second hour we got our new best friend back, that’s right Mr. Stephen Bass is taking up his normal seat in the shop. Stephen is back to talk another exciting episode of this season of The Ultimate Fighter. This season is just getting started and already there is beef between guys in the house, coaches are screwing with each other, and fighters are leaking info to the other team about their own teammates.
I can’t WAIT to see where this season goes… I do believe we are going to see fireworks folks, but hey don’t trust me, hear it from our man Stephen Bass as he breaks down this week’s episode and gives us his insight about all the madness that has gone down since the last time we spoke… You don’t want to miss his inside look!
Danny “Dee1” Davis Jr.
Last and not least, is a man that can destroy you with his fists or his lyrics regardless of the type of battle you want. That’s right Danny “Dee1” Davis Jr. is stopping by the shop and trust and bleed this conversation is going to be great. Danny has history with the show like the street has history with fighting, we go way back!
Danny has an interesting story as he grew up in the streets and turned it all around to dominate in the kickboxing world and to then make the switch to the MMA world. Did I mention that Danny not only is a professional fighter, but also kills it in the booth. Dee1 is the Rapper/Scrapper, so trust me when I say he is killing it with his music as well.
Look at a list of guys that Dee has opened for and what he has done up to this point with is mic skill. Youtube him and watch some of his videos yourself. We will talk to Dee about his recent Strikeforce debut, taking fights on short notice, and where things are going from here.
