Our first guest is a man known in the cage, on the mat, and also on the big screen. Din Thomas is kicking things off this week and I can’t wait to talk to a true legend in the sport. Din has fought some of the best in the sport from Jens Pulver, Caol Uno, BJ Penn, Clay Guida, Kenny Florian, and plenty more. Din holds an impressive record of 25-8-1 so you know we have plenty to talk about. Din runs two schools out of Florida and also holds the rank of Black Belt in BJJ under Ricardo Liborio. We will talk with Din on his time in the sport, his future, and you know we have to talk about being a big time movie star now as well. Make sure to follow Din on twitter @DinThomas
Our next guest is one of the sport’s most colorful men and one of the best guys to learn JJ from when it comes to putting it to use in the cage. Eddie Bravo is back and you know what that means, it means one of the best interviews you will hear this week is going down. Eddie does it all from teaching some of the best up and comers in the sport, to working with the established elite in the game. 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu is not a gym it’s a movement and one that has swept the world! We will talk with Bravo about 10th Planet, the legacy he is leaving on the sport, his time with the UFC, and if he would ever go back to work for them. The only thing you know when it comes to Bravo coming on the show, is that you never know where the conversation could go. Follow Eddie on twitter @EddieBravo
Kicking off the second hour is a man who’s undefeated and waiting on his call from the UFC. Steve Swanson is on the show and you might recognize the last name, but this big brother has made his own name and is waiting for his big opportunity. Steve is 9-0 and just picked up his last two wins in less then 20 seconds… Now you’re wondering what I have been thinking… how is this man not in the UFC? We will talk to Steve about his current streak, what’s next for him, and of course what he expects to happen in his career as 2013 approaches. This is an interview that I can’t wait to be a part of as something tells me that we will be talking about Steve long after this interview is over.

ERIC DEL FIERRO
We have to close out this show with a huge name and it doesn’t get much bigger then Coach Eric Del Fierro. Coach Eric Del Fierro is the head coach at Alliance Training Center where some of the sport’s biggest names train out of. We will talk to Coach Eric about what is in store for the gym and his fighters in the coming year, and of course if he plans to open a third location. That’s right for those of you that didn’t know Alliance isn’t just holding it down with one location, they’ve got two and I can only imagine what else is in store. We will talk to Coach Eric about having to take care of not only two gyms, but also the stable of fighters that continues to grow by the day. You want the best, well we got him.
