Three Amigos Podcast

Since Bellator 141 is our premium MMA offering for this weekend, we've taken the liberty of uploading our show featuring Jimmy Smith, Sean Grande and Raymond Daniels for your listening pleasure. It is from three weeks ago, but serves an important function in letting our Bloody Elbow listeners in on some great stories from Bellator's commentary team. We hope you enjoy this episode of the Three Amigos Podcast. Here's a brief summary of the segments:

Sean Grande (interview starts at 31:35 mark of the audio) discusses his first official foray into MMA commentary, talks a little basketball, gives a peek into his high-school/college years and much more.

Jimmy Smith (interview starts at 1:15:35 mark of the audio) discusses working with a new "Sean," how the new & improved Bellator is sitting with him, what his high school/college years were like and how he almost left the promotion after a dispute with Bjorn Rebney.

Raymond Daniels (interview starts at the 1:58:45 mark in the audio) discussed his upcoming title bout with Nieky Holzken in the main event of Glory 23 and talks about the current kickboxing landscape and future opportunities.

The hosts look back on UFC 190 and discuss Ronda Rousey's career trajectory, Cris Cyborg being the only real threat if she can make the weight, look forward to UFC: Nashville, newly announced fights for upcoming fight cards and give an overview of the newly revealed details of the anti-doping program headed up by a partnership between USADA and the UFC.
