Submission Radio returns for the final episode of 2015. This week’s show features interviews with Randy Couture, Johny Hendricks, Max Holloway, and an extensive roundtable discussion with Bloody Elbow’s own associate editor, Karim Zidan.
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.
Randy Couture returns to the show (at the 3:48 mark) to give his thoughts on Conor McGregor knocking out Jose Aldo in 13 seconds, if Aldo deserves a rematch, the Frankie Edgar match up, whether McGregor can hold power over the UFC and co-promote with the company, if it’s possible to hold two title belts simultaneously, if Ronda Rousey can make the necessary adjustments to win a rematch with Holly Holm, how the UFC handled Miesha Tate’s title shot, his thoughts on fighters attitudes towards retirement, and much more.
Johny Hendricks returns to the show (at the 51:35 mark) to talk about his fight against Stephen Thompson at UFC 196, how he convinced the UFC to let him stay at welterweight, working with Louis Giordano to fix his weight issues, why he decided to leave Team Takedown, where he’s training now, Stephen Thompson’s striking, how close he is to getting another title shot, Georges St-Pierre wanting to return when Johny was set to move to middleweight, wanting to fight GSP at UFC 200, and lots more.
Max Holloway makes his first appearance on Submission Radio (at the 29:40 mark) to talk about his win over Jeremy Stephens at UFC 194, Jose Aldo’s loss does to his legacy, why he doesn’t believe McGregor really injured his ACL when they fought, taking on Conor McGregor in Ireland, having his own Irish fans, what a fight against Frankie Edgar at UFC Hawaii would mean, potentially fighting Jose Aldo and how the fight would go, and much more.
Karim Zidan (@ZidanSports) joins the roundtable discussion, to not only discuss the big stories from UFC Orlando (at the 1:15:11 mark), but also shed light on why Fedor Emelianenko will face Jaideep Signh at Rizin, but also why you shouldn’t be surprised.
