There's a reason I didn't do any UFC 99 talk (check the comments), but the rest of the show went well:
I open the show with discussion of the Washington City Paper profile piece then go into detail about Faber vs. Brown II.
Tim Kennedy joins the show to talk Nick Thompson, back to training full time, the future of the Army Combatives program and more.
My producer Othello and I discuss the abortion that is Tim Sylvia vs. Ray Mercer and the culpability of Monte Cox in the sordid affair.
In the fourth segment, we discuss why Gina Carano and Cris Cyborg are not the top two female fighters in MMA and why Molly Qerim is significantly hotter than Gina Carano.
We end the show with a discussion of why the UFC Gyms could either be a over commercialized disaster or the types of initiatives that help bring MMA closer to the mainstream.
