It’s time for another of our infamous and patented Care/Don’t Care Podcasts, with your talent: the astounding Eugene S. 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’, the indubitable John S. Nash, our chief financials analyst and co-host of our ‘Show Money Podcast’, along with our lovely co-host, Stephie Haynes, of Bloody Elbow’s The Level Change Podcast and The Mookie & Crookie Show.
The format of the show is to review the prior weeks picks & then to announce each fight on the upcoming card, commenting on which fights are hot and which fights are not, as well as introducing an off-topic discussion point or two. This week’s topics are as follows:
