We are back this week with another episode of your favorite MMA Radio show and we hope you are ready. You know one thing we never do on this show is choke, but our first guest is a guy who will choke you and not think twice about it. With 6 of his 7 wins coming by choke, I hope you can protect your neck. Cliff Wright Jr. is stopping into the shop and we are thinking about wearing neck braces or turtle necks. Cliff is getting ready to step back into the Bellator cage and after his last performance you know the man is looking to pick up his second win inside the promotion. If you watched Cliff’s last fight for Bellator you know the man is not one with any lack of submission game. We will talk to him about training for his upcoming fight, how he got started in the sport, what his goals for 2013 consist of, training with the likes of Biggie, Koch, and the rest of the warriors out in Iowa, and so much more. Don’t miss one second of this interview and make sure to follow Cliff on twitter @CliffWrightCR


When you need things busted up you know you could always use a Jackhammer and that’s what we got in the shop for our second guest. Jared “The Jackhammer” Papazian is back in the shop and ready to talk his next UFC fight against Tim Elliot at the TUF Finale. It’s been a minute since we had the chance to catch up with Jared which means just like Jared’s fights their won’t be much break in the action. We will catch up with Jared about life and what he has been doing since the last time he was up in the shop. Jared is making the drop to the stacked Flyweight division and you know we will talk to him about the thought behind the drop, who he feels is the #1 man in the division, and how ready he is to get in the Octagon and go to war. Jared is not the type to do anything but bring it, whether he is on a show or in the cage and you know you shouldn’t expect anything less this go around. Get ready for a great interview and a fight that should produce some serious fireworks. Before the show starts get over to twitter and follow Jared @JackHammer135


Our next guest is a man who looks to finish all of his opponents whether it’s by making you tap, or making you take a nap. The only time he has not finished an opponent is in a fight where he had two torn ligaments in his hand. Did I mention he had the injury before the fight even took place? That’s right California’s own Reuben Duran is stopping by to knock this interview out cold! Reuben is set to step back into the Octagon at the Ultimate Fighter Finale and I am sure he is aiming for another Bonus like he took home in his last UFC fight. We will talk to Reuben about his years of training, what made him decide to choose fighting as his full time job, where he wants to be at the end of 2013, and if he has his eyes on anyone in the division. I can’t wait to talk to Reuben about his early days in the sport where as an amateur he won Grappler’s Quest 6 times. Yeah dude is bad, I think that stat put that question to rest.

Our last guest is getting ready to make his long awaited UFC debut and it all goes down at the TUF finale. Vinc Pichel was supposed to make his UFC debut at the TUF finale last season, but when his opponent fell to the injury bug his debut was scratched. Well now Vinc gets a chance to finally step foot into the Octagon and I can tell you one thing I am sure the man is ready. Vinc was a part of team Cruz and has had some very exciting fights to get him to this point. Vinc is 7-0 as a pro and get this…. ALL 7 of his fights he has won by KO!!! If that stat doesn’t get you excited to watch this man scrap at the finale, you might as well just stop reading this now. We will talk to Vinc about finally getting his debut shot, having hands made of concrete, training at Alliance, and trust me there is way more to talk to Vinc about. If anyone gets to turn the lights out in the shop this week I think we found our closer. Follow Vinc on twitter @FromHellPichel
