He also talks about Phil Davis as a possible opponent and threat to McGeary’s title, fighting Frank Shamrock in a rematch, Fedor Emelianenko’s decision to fight in Japan, if Fedor is really the GOAT, if he would fight Fedor on the New Year’s Eve card, ways to improve Bellator PR, Nick Diaz’s suspension, Jon Jones’ return to MMA and getting his life together, Cris Cyborg’s drop to 140 and if she can eventually make 135, Holly Holm’s chances against Ronda at UFC 193, and more.
Jon Fitch makes his first appearance on the show (at the 26:40 mark) to talk about his fight against Yushin Okami at WSOF 24, Yushin’s big drop to welterweight, if he’s worried about Yushin making the weight, who has the better grappling, the new fighting system he’s been working on, if Rousimar Palhares should ever fight again, fighting Jake Shields for the vacant WSOF welterweight belt, his ongoing lawsuit against the UFC and what the outcome will mean for fighters and MMA, getting rid of exclusive fighter contracts, loving the UFC but never wanting to fight for ZUFFA again, NSAC’s abuse of power in handling Nick Diaz’s suspension, being a medical marijuana activist and why weed is better than pharmaceutical pain killers, if marijuana is really a PED, the current fighter revolution in MMA, and more.
