Mark Dellagrotte stars in the new film “Here Comes the Boom” which opened in theaters last Friday.
On today’s show, Dellagrotte talks about turning from trainer to actor, how he thinks star Kevin James would do in a real MMA fight, and the possibility of it actually happening.
Brian Rogers will join us as well to discuss his upcoming fight in Ohio next weekend, and how the Bellator model of tournaments takes any of the guess work out of who deserves a title shot.
Dave Jansen will look to move on in the Bellator lightweight tournament this weekend, while Dave Morgan hopes to make his biggest impact in the sport with his debut for the promotion as well.
And MMAWeekly Radio is where debate happens with all new topics today including:
- Does Dana White have a point by saying Chael Sonnen got the fight with Jon Jones because he’s “the one that stepped up”?
- How much of a difference will moving off Friday nights make for the Ultimate Fighter?
- What do you make of the FX exec’s comments saying “Spike better watch their ass”?
- Fedor posts on Facebook asking if he should return to fighting. Should Fedor fight again?
