Submission Radio returns, after a week of absence, with an action-packed episode! On this week’s show, we chat with Luke Rockhold, Tim Kennedy, Judo Gene Lebell, and break down UFC Dublin, Reebok’s disastrous Irish t-shirt, and Jon Jones being reinstated back in the UFC.
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.
Luke Rockhold returns to the show (at the 33:50 mark) to discuss his upcoming middleweight title fight against Chris Weidman at UFC 194, his early morning experience with USADA, his advantages over Weidman and Chris’ speed issues, dealing with Weidman’s pressure, why the wrestling won’t be a factor, Chris’ huge weight cut affecting his performance, the pressure of having the greatest middleweight title fight of all time, how their resume’s stack up, if Weidman’s hype is warranted, facing Anderson Silva in the future, sparring at AKA, why he roundhouse kicked and smashed iPhones, and much more.
Tim Kennedy returns to Submission Radio (at the 3:35 mark) to discuss his recent reality TV show about catching war criminals, pissing off ISIS, the situation in Syria, what he would do if he was president, recent American shootings and gun control, Johny Hendricks’ disastrous weight cut, why Hendricks is actually one of the biggest threats at middleweight, the real reason why Dan Henderson doesn’t want to fight him, Vitor Belfort being allowed to fight at UFC 152 despite having raised testosterone levels, why the UFC can’t stop him from speaking his mind on Reebok and why his fight kit is unavailable, the possibility of him going over to Bellator, fighting Zombies with Danny Trejo and Ron Jeremy, and more.
