Welcome to Crooklyn’s Corner, the podcast that’s basically a hodgepodge of topics focused on the combat sports and entertainment community. The show will feature special interviews, fantasy matchmaking/analysis and whatever else we can come up with to keep our listeners steeped in fresh and engaging content. The show is hosted by Stephie Haynes and airs when needed to fill gaps in our Bloody Elbow Presents podcast network.

Here is a summary of the topics discussed or questions asked. Time stamps won’t always be available as our conversations tend to be very fluid and bounce back & forth frequently. However, when fantasy matchmaking and analysis is the focal point of an episode, we will definitely timestamp when each fight breakdown begins. As always, I hope you enjoy listening to the show as much as I enjoyed recording it.


  • Jon Anik said after Moreno won the belt “That man is now a millionaire.” How accurate is that?
  • Nate Diaz’ drawing power and possible pay (if you happen to know)
  • PPV points and the champions/contenders (break down how it works and estimation of lower weights/women/higher weights purses)
  • Do we believe Tyron Woodley that this is going to be his biggest payday ever, since Dana said he’s wrong?
  • Dana backing down from fighter benefits talk (will we ever see anything happen?)
  • Paulo Costa calling off his fight over money
  • Thoughts on the reported numbers from Mayweather/Paul
  • ONE Championship going public
  • Ali Act/Unions/Associations: Are they feasible for MMA?
