This video is hosted from www.youtube.com
The Fight Nerd caught up with former Bellator welterweight champion Lyman Good after his split decision loss to Rick Hawn at Bellator 39. Hawn advances in the welterweight tournament, hoping to get his shot against Ben Askren, while Good is forced to sit on the sidelines and wait to see what Bjorn Rebney has for him next. We discuss his fight, if he agreed with the judges, what went wrong with his strategy, and who he would like to fight next.

The Fight Nerd caught up with "The Killa B", Ben Saunders of American Top Team, after his win over Matt Lee at Bellator 39. Saunders displayed excellent Muay Thai skills and left all of us scratching our heads as to why the UFC would cut him, but their loss is Bellator's gain. Saunders calls his opponent "the real Korean zombie" and breaks down the fight, talks about what it's like to see that much blood in a fight, and who he wants next (which could just be Lyman Good). more
The Fight Nerd caught up with Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney to talk about the upcoming fourth season of Bellator and all of the exciting new things happening during this run. We discuss their new network deal and if Saturday nights will interfere with UFC programming since they are now competing head to head, and get an update on their trip to New Jersey.
Rebney also tells us what he thinks was the defining moment for Bellator in 2010, which tournament he is looking forward to the most this year, and explains just what happened with the whole Strikeforce VS Bellator battle and why it won't happen. more
The Fight Nerd caught up with the ginormous Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva (and his translator) to talk about the opening round of the upcoming Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix tournament, which begins on February 12 at the IZOD Center in New Jersey. Silva talks about his first round opponent, Fedor Emelianeko, and discusses his thoughts on him since his first loss in 10 years to Fabricio Werdum, as well as if there are any holes in his game. Silva also predicts who he will meet in the finals of the tournament and talks about leaving American Top Team to start his own gym. more
The Fight Nerd caught up with Alistair Overeem at the Strikeforce New York Press Conference to get his predictions on what would happen in the epic heavyweight grand prix, thoughts on fighting Fabricio Werdum again, his response to all the fighters I interviewed seeing him in the finals, and what's up with Japanese MMA. Then I go too far and ask more about Japan which forces "The Reem" to almost melt my spine with his laser beam eyes. This is why you don't interview fighters who have an empty stomach -- they just might eat you! I also nerd out and give Alistair one of my classic Fight Nerd "Art of Fighting" shirts, which are still available for $25 shipped in the US if you email me (since I am too lazy to add a store function). more
The Fight Nerd caught up with Josh Barnett at the Strikeforce press conference in New York City, and asked him his thoughts on the heavyweight grand prix tournament. We also talk about his thoughts on Japanese MMA, his harsh response to Dana White's comments that Josh will not pass his drug test, and I give him the gift of a pack of pro wrestling trading cards. Let's see what Josh got! more
The Fight Nerd caught up with BJJ black belt Igor Gracie at the Renzo Gracie Academy in Manhattan, NY, to preview his upcoming bout against Richard Patishnock at "World Series of Fighting 2", which is scheduled for March 23 in New Jersey.

"The Fight Professor" Stephen Quadros caught up with The Fight Nerd in the first of this three-part interview to discuss Glory kickboxing and preview Glory 5 and 6, which feature Remy Bonjasky VS Tyrone Spong and Gokhan Saki VS Daniel Ghita respectively.
