Alright so this is the last weekend that the barber shop is open for the year 2012. That being said we have to go out with a bang and what a better way to start things off then to bring our girl back from Women’s MMA roundup. That’s right Veronica “V-Rod” LoCurto is dropping back into the shop and with the recent events in Women’s MMA we have plenty to talk about. Of course we are going to talk the upcoming UFC Women’s debut fight with a title on the line. Liz Carmouche and Rhonda Rousey are set to square off in that history setting match and I can’t wait to get V-rod’s thoughts about this. Don’t get me wrong though, Invicta FC is set to put their second title on the line and we have one of the sides who are set to fight for that belt later on the show. We will take the first hour of the show and talk nothing but Women’s MMA. Phone lines will be open for this whole segment and you know we hope to hear from you with your thoughts on the future of Women’s MMA and if we will ever see more then one division of ladies inside the UFC, and of course the super fight between Cyborg and Rousey. Make sure you bookmark Follow the ladies on Twitter @WMMARoundup and Veronica at @vr0d


You thought C was for Cookie, but it’s not! C is for Carla Esparza and Champ. Two things that are going to be said in the same sentence, if Carla has her way at the upcoming Invicta FC 4 card, January 5th. Carla is on a 3 fight win streak with the last two coming under the Invicta FC banner. Carla is set to take on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Claudia Gadelha who is undefeated and knowing Carla that doesn’t mean nothing. The Cookie Monster is ready to bang and I am sure that the fact a bright new shiny belt is on the line makes it even more motivating. Did I mention that her last two wins have come by way of TKO? Yeah Carla isn’t here to play games. We will talk to Carla about her training camp heading into such a high level fight, women in the UFC, how this fight is different then any other one in her career, and of course what her goals are for the upcoming year (Something tells me that the first thing on the agenda is to grab up that new belt). You know we have to talk a little Team Oyama and her amateur wrestling career. Make sure to follow Carla on Twitter @CarlaEsparza1


Alright… for the second hour we turn things over to the fellas and our first guest is a man who has two amazing facts to drop on you. The first is that he has been on two episodes of The Ultimate Fighter. Yeah that’s right, he injured his knee on his first appearance in the first episode and lost to Al Iaquinta on his second appearance. Regardless of how those turned out Myles Jury is still undefeated in his career and 1-0 inside the UFC and he’s ready to finally come up in the barber shop. I guess it would be important to tell you that every one of his ten fights has ended inside the first round (Like I said with his hand raised.) Yeah Myles is a bad man and we got him and he’s ready to talk his match up against Michael Johnson. We will talk to Myles about the upcoming match, being back for his second fight in the UFC, the nerves of hitting the big show for the second time, and of course his training down at Alliance. We have to talk a little about Myles’ time inside the house twice, if he would ever do it again, and where he wants to end up at the end of the year. Make sure to follow Myles on twitter @FuryJury


Our last guest is a man who knows a few things about the barber shop and also a man who brings it every time he’s up in the shop. Antonio McKee AKA Mandingo, AKA El Negro is back and you know that means it could get more then crazy. Antonio is set to take on Shinya Aoki in a bout that was scheduled to take place back in 2011. We will talk to Antonio about how things are at the Body Shop, training for a guy like Shinya Aoki and how you look for training partners when facing such an opponent. Antonio is never one to shy away from the tough questions and usually brings them up on his own. You know we will talk to the current state of MMA with Mr. McKee, how things are going for him in CA with his amateur MMA promotion, how much longer we can plan on seeing him inside a pair of 4 oz gloves, if he is worried about going to the ground with Shinya. Antonio is a man who dominates in his fights and when you make him mad enough to turn on the switch someone could get seriously hurt. I’m going to be brave and say that phone lines are open the whole interview, all I have to say is get ready and make sure to follow Antonio on twitter @ElNegro01
