Welcome to your super special, bonus Friday edition of the Three Amigos Podcast. This episode is a little off our normal, beaten path in that it focuses solely on gaming. With the upcoming release of the new UFC game, we decided to give our listeners a fairly thorough breakdown of the game, at least the beta version we were given access to. As if that weren't enough of a fun ride, we've also got a fantastic guest, UFC flyweight champion and gamer extraordinaire, Demetrious Johnson, discussing all things gaming and game streaming.

Here is a summary of each interview segment, complete with the time stamps for when each interview or special segment begins. As always, we hope you enjoy listening to the show as much as we enjoyed recording it.

In the second and final segment, UFC flyweight champ, Demetrious Johnson (interview starts at the 18:45 mark of the audio), takes over the guest chair to discuss all aspects of his own gaming activities. Some topics covered were:

-When he first got into gaming
