Charlie Brenneman was one of the unfortunate fighters who was part of the now canceled UFC 151 event, and he’ll talk to us about how he found out he was no longer fighting and why some of his anger about the cancellation was aimed directly at Jon Jones.
Authentic Sports Management leader Glenn Robinson also stops by to talk to us about his roster of athletes including Alistair Overeem, Rashad Evans and much much more.
Finally the debate heats up on today’s show with all new topics including:
- Vitor Belfort says he’s old school and has no problem with short notice fights. Should more fighters adopt Vitor’s philosophy?
- Alistair Overeem will not wait for a title shot and wants to fight as soon as possible. Good move or bad move?
- Frankie Edgar says he may bounce between division much like Dan Henderson. Should Frankie stick to featherweight or be willing to move back and forth?
- World Series of Fighting will debut in November and it’s rumored to land on NBC Sports Network. How big is this deal in the landscape of MMA on television?
