Fisttacuff Radio Show 145: Coleman, Alessio, Njokuani, Camoes


They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, I don’t think 30 minutes will be enough for our first guest. Eric Coleman is the man behind the lens for Bellator Fighting Championship. The man has taken some amazing shots and just think about all of the fights that he has photographed. You also have to check out the man’s Vlogs, they are 100% pure gold. We will talk to Eric about the work he has done inside of Bellator and how the job came about. Eric has also done plenty outside of Bellator as well, so we have plenty to talk about. I can’t wait to get a chance to see into the view of the man that captures the images we all view. Follow Eric on twitter @e_coleman


Our next guest is no doubt a veteran of the sport. Not only has he fought for the UFC, PRIDE, WEC, KOTC, and almost anyone else you can name, but he also made his UFC Debut at 20 against Pat Miletich. I am talking about John “The Natural” Alessio. Alessio is scheduled to take on Shane Roller July 7, at UFC 148. We will talk to John about being back in the UFC and of course his current match-up. With a guest like John the options to discuss are wide open. You might hear us talk a little about his camp and working with the crew over at Xtreme Couture, living here in Las Vegas, and his whole career. The man does carry a record of 34-15 and has fought a list of big names during his career. Tune in and follow John on twitter @JohnAlessio79


Our next guest is a man that has been on a few videos and interviews over here at FIST-ta-CUFF Radio. Anthony Njokuani is back in the shop and getting ready to throw down on July 11, at “UFC on Fuel TV: Munoz vs. Weidman.” Anthony was originally set to take on Paul Taylor but due to the recent UFC injury bug he will now square off against Rafael dos Anjos. Anthony is coming off a unanimous decision against John Makdessi and looking to extend his win streak. We will talk to Anthony about training, how life has changed with the baby, training with his brother (gotta mention Chidi) and plenty of other things. We will chop it up with Anthony about some of the recent issues in the sport as well so tune in and call in with any of your questions. Follow Anthony on twitter @AnthonyNjoku


Wrapping up the show is a man who is capable of wrapping you up on the mat. Back in the shop and ready to talk his upcoming fight, Fabricio “Morango” Camoes drops in to talk his exciting match up against Melvin Guillard at UFC 148. Did you hear who he is fighting? This is guranteed to be an awesome fight for the fans! I can’t wait to talk this match-up, his last fight, and just being back in the UFC and the energy it provides him. Fabricio is the head BJJ coach at Victory MMA in San Diego, so you know we have to talk the school and how things are in that part of his life. Trust me you don’t want to miss this show as Fabricio very well could bring the shop down! Follow Fabricio on twitter @FabricioCamoes
