Bloody Elbow Radio, presented by Bad Boy, will be LIVE! at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT for another edition of the show. Join hosts Matt Bishop and MMA Mania's Brian Hemminger as they preview Friday night's Bellator 64 show with coverage from the site of the event, Caesars Windsor Hotel & Casino in Windsor, Ontario.
At Wednesday's open workouts, we spoke with the following people for today's show:
- Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren about his title defense, the state of college wrestling, what makes a good wrestler and more.
- We talked to his opponent, No. 1 contender and Season 5 tournament winner Douglas Lima about the fight, as well, and what he did in camp to prepare for Askren.
- We'll also chat with Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney about Bellator 64 plus a host of other Bellator issues, including the Cole Konrad/Eric Prindle fight, the move to Friday nights, how he'd evaluate this season so far, what type of crowd they expect Friday and the company's upcoming reality show.
- We'll also bring you interviews from the open workouts with featherweights Chris Horodecki and Marlon Sandro, both of whom will be competing on Friday's card. Horodecki talked about his move to featherweight, moving on without Shawn Tompkins, fighting in front of his local fans and more. With Sandro, we talked about his featherweight tournament fight with Alexandre Bezerra, wanting another fight with Pat Curran and more.
In addition to talking to many of the competitors on Friday's show, we'll also preview the event with our world-famous "Bellator Brian Breakdown," while also taking your calls, emails, tweets and comments.
We'll also discuss all the latest news in mixed martial arts, including Alistair Overeem's failed drug test.
