Submission Radio returns with another action-packed show, featuring interviews with Chael Sonnen and Andrei Arlovski. Legend of the MMA community and founder of ‘The Underground’ Kirik Jenness also joins Kacper and Denis on the program for a roundtable discussion, covering such topics as TUF’s relevance in today’s UFC, if Fedor is too old to make a successful comeback, and if Dana White really saved Miesha Tate’s career by denying her a title shot against Ronda Rousey.
As always, the video above features clickable annotations and timestamps, and below is a rundown of what to expect on the episode. We hope you enjoy the show.
Chael Sonnen makes his first ever appearance on Submission Radio (at the 25:00 mark) to talk about his new commentating gig at WSOF, Holly Holm’s boxing and kickboxing titles having zero validity, Anderson Silva’s ridiculous NSAC hearing, predicting that Jones/Johnson would never happen, setting the blueprint for self-promotion in MMA and everybody copying him, if he’ll ever return to MMA, the promise he made on his father’s deathbed about winning the UFC belt, why Fedor is terrible, the testosterone era in MMA, UFC 193, grappling competitions and who his next opponent at Metamoris will be, Kanye West saying he’ll run for president, what ‘Front Row Brian’ actually looks like, and much more.
Andrei Arlovski returns to Submission Radio (at the 3:32 mark) to talk about his recent win over Frank Mir at UFC 191, why he was disappointed with his performance, the negativity that came post-fight, his response to critics, what he did right, why he underestimated Mir, pre-fight distractions, being lighter than usual, how badly he injured his hand, if the Mir fight hurt his chances of getting a title shot, if Fedor deserves an immediate title fight against Fabricio Werdum, wanting a rematch with Fedor upon his return, how successful Fedor can be at his age, if Junior Dos Santos will ever be the same after the two Cain Velasquez losses, if he would fight Alistair Overeem despite being teammates, and much more.
Kirik Jenness joins us in our roundtable discussion to break down whether or not Dana White really saved Miesha Tate’s career (at the 1:17:02 mark), if Fedor is too old to return to his glorious, winning ways (at the 1:31:01 mark), and if The Ultimate Fighter is still relevant and serves a purpose (at the 1:44:20 mark).
