It’s SHOWTIME! No I mean really, it’s Showtime. That’s right, Anthony Pettis is back on the show and it’s been a while since he was up in the barber shop. You know we have plenty to talk about with Anthony from his injury, to the time he spent in the hospital after the surgery and more. Anthony is currently ranked in the top ten of the deepest division in MMA and I know he won’t rest until he sits atop the rankings with the UFC gold around his waist. We will discuss how Anthony has stayed motivated with the string of bad luck and his current feud with Cowboy and how that fight is now official. We will also talk his new gym, TV show, and of course the restaurant. Make sure to follow Anthony on twitter @ShowtimePettis


Next up is a man that I think is one of the best talents outside of the UFC and one I have no doubt will be fighting in the octagon soon. Dakota Cochrane is in the shop and I can’t wait to talk to him about his career and of course his most recent wins. Dakota is the only fighter signed to RFA that has fought on every RFA card, and after his latest win I hope we see him on RFA 5. Dakota was undefeated as an amateur and won his first 4 fights as a pro. We will talk to him about being signed to the RFA, losing his first two fights, but coming back to wreck shop as of late. You know we have to talk to him about fighting and beating Jamie Varner on 4 days’ notice. It’s not often that I get excited about talking to fighters, but this is one interview I am pumped for. Dakota is the fighter that I am telling you to keep an eye on this next year and make sure to tune into the show to get to know Dakota Cochrane and follow him on twitter @DakotaCochrane


The second hour gets kicked off by a man who knows a thing or two about kicking. Think I’m joking??? Just ask his last opponent. Chidi “Bang Bang” Njokuani is back on the show and it’s been way too long. Chidi is coming off a very impressive performance at RFA 4. Chidi was the first person to finish Phil Dace and you know we will talk to him about the fight. Chidi dominated the whole fight and as someone who was there live all I have to say is go watch it. Chidi doesn’t need his last name to get him to the big show because his talent alone will be enough. We will talk to Chidi about being signed to RFA, his goals for the upcoming year, and when he wants the call to the big show to happen. Get ready for one the baddest strikers in the game to break it all down inside the shop this week. Follow Chidi on twitter @ChidiBangNjoku


Last but not least is a man who has done so much for soldiers through his love for the sport. Todd Vance is back on the show and if you remember last time it was awesome! This time I don’t expect anything less as Todd has a lot more going on and we will try to cover all of it. We will talk to Todd about his work with soldiers with PTSD and how he is using MMA to help them find a new outlet. Trust me Todd is making moves like he owned a U-haul company and we aren’t the only one taking notes. Todd has been working on some very special things and I hope we can fit it all in, inside the 30 minute time frame. Make sure to tune in cause Todd brings it.
