Bloody Elbow Radio, presented by Bad Boy, was live Tuesday afternoon to discuss the latest in MMA. Hosts Matt Bishop and Forrest Lynn talked about all the fallout from Saturday's UFC 130, including the Quinton Jackson controversy, and also had a discussion about professionalism in the MMA media.
We were joined by middleweight Jake Rosholt, who is coming off a controversial disqualification loss to John Ott at Titan Fighting Championship 18. We talked with him about his appeal to the Kansas commission, the knee itself and whether he thinks Ott milked it. We also chatted about his career progression and why he's fighting so much in 2011.
"You know, do I think he (milked it)? Yeah, I think he did. Can I judge him or is it my place to judge him about what he did? No. It was his own decision. If he was hurt that bad, he was hurt that bad, but I sure think that he played it up a little bit. I don't understand how you can watch the video and not think that he did. The guy popped right back up, walked to the center, threw his thumbs up, the ref comes back over to him and says it was an illegal knee and he starts getting wobbly. So yeah, I think for sure he played it up a little bit."
We also were joined by Dave Herman, who'll make his UFC debut when he faces Jon Olav Einemo on the main card of UFC 131 in Vancouver. We chatted with him about his fight, his love of aviation and more.
Bloody Elbow Radio returns at 4 p.m. ET Thursday to preview "The Ultimate Fighter 13 Finale" and to talk the latest in MMA. We'll be joined by notable MMA trainer Duke Roufus.
