It’s time for another infamous and patented Care/Don’t Care Preview with your talent: John S. Nash, our MMA Financials Analyst and co-host of Show Money of Bloody Elbow, who will be permanently filling in for Nate from here on out, and as usual, Eugene S. Robinson of ozy.com and author of Fight: Everything You Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking but Were Afraid You’d Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking.
The guys are trying out an all new format with the show for the third week now. We have added the illustrious Stephie Haynes of Bloody Elbow as Host of the show. As host, she will play the role of moderator/fact finder/director of fight affairs and announce each fight as we go, as well as introducing an off-topic discussion point; this week being a non-event week, for the holidays, the topics will be:
1:50 - The UFC (oof-see) replacing regular commentators with fighters to take over commentary in the booth
8:27 - 'Baby It's Cold Outside' is at the center of a controversy. Is the song getting the virtue signaling treatment, or has it been rightfully yanked from radio play?
16:39 - UFC 233 cancelled, leaving only one fight card (UFC Fight Night: Cejudo vs. Dillashaw) for the whole month of January. Love it or hate it?
22:48 - Oscar De La Hoya vs. Dana White in battle of promotions. Goldenboy vows to stay in the MMA space. Dana says ODLH is a coke-sniffing dumbdumb. ODLH challenges Dana to three rounds of boxing. And go!
32:04 - Thoughts on Rock & Roll HOF inductees: Radiohead, Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks
38:00 - Best Christmas movie of choice
We know change is hard, and we have been throwing a lot at you this past couple months or so with our podcasts and videos, but hopefully this new format with John, Eugene and Steph will be something you can look forward to every fight week on Tuesdays at 2:00 PM CST on SoundCloud, YouTube and iTunes, and on Bloody Elbow. Stick with us and keep listening. We appreciate your loyalty.
