Join Gary Thomas and Jack Bratcher Thursday night on the LIVE broadcast of The Cageside Beat podcast for a look into a jam packed weekend of MMA with “UFC on FX 2: Alves vs. Kampmann” taking place Friday and “Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey” on Saturday.

Our first guest of the night is Strikeforce women’s MMA 145-pounder Julia Budd (@JuliaBudd). We will talk with Julia about what’s going on in her own career as well as the Ronda Rousey vs. Miesha Tate bout. Julia is the last woman to fight Rousey, so she will surely have plenty of thoughts about the match-up and hopefully we can get her prediction on the fight as well.

Also on tonight’s show is Tachi Palace Fights promoter and author of’s “The Project Files” blog, Jeremy Luchau (@TheProject23). We will talk with Jeremy about the upcoming Tachi Palace Fights 12 card which takes place next Friday, March 9, in Lemoore, Calif.
