Robinson of ozy.com and author of “Fight: Everything You Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You’d Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking” and host of the newly released OZY CONFIDENTIAL podcast, and co-host John S. Nash is back, the financials analyst of our Show Money Podcast, aka: the man who knows everything there is to know about the history of MMA. Eugene and John are joined by their astute moderator, Stephie Haynes of Bloody Elbow’s Level Change Podcast and the Mookie & Crookie Show.
