A former student of Renzo Gracie, Harold Perrineau is now part of the most popular show on FX, Sons of Anarchy. Perrineau joins today’s show to talk about his new role as big bad Damon Pope on Sons of Anarchy as well as his love of mixed martial arts.
Following the cancellation of Strikeforce this weekend both champion Gilbert Melendez and opponent Pat Healy stop by to talk to us about their disappointment in the events that lead up to the show being scrapped.
Finally the debate heats up today with all new topics including:
- Did Showtime make the right call saying they would not air the Strikeforce event without a viable main event?
- Should Pat Healy wait for Gilbert Melendez to return or should he take another fight on the Nov 3 card?
- Ultimate Fighter ratings drop to 872,000 viewers for episode 2 but Dana White insists FX is happy. Is it time to sound the alarm for TUF?
- Dana White reveals top five PPV draws – any surprises in the list?
