It’s time for another one of our infamous and patented Care/Don’t Care Podcasts, with your talent: the astounding 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” and host of the ‘Ozy Confidential’ Podcast, the ‘Eugene S. Robinson Show Stomper!’ Podcast, and co-host of the ‘If The Shoes Fit’ Podcast, along with the indubitable John S. Nash, our chief financials columnist and co-host of our ‘Show Money’ Podcast he is also one of the co-hosts of the ‘If The Shoes Fit’ Podcast; the trio is moderated by the lovely Stephie Haynes, of Bloody Elbow’s ‘The Level Change’ Podcast and ’The Mookie & Crookie Show’ Podcast.

The format of the show is to review the prior weeks’ picks & then to announce each fight on the upcoming card, quickly commenting on which fights are hot, and which fights are not, based on relevancy to the sport as a whole.


Overall, this now whittled down 10-bout card saw two exhilarating first round finishes, four impressive KO/TKO’s, no submissions, five decisions – one majority, as well as one majority draw. Rounding things out, bonuses for putting forth POTN efforts went to Cheyenne Buys & Melsik Baghdasaryan; FOTN honors went to Jason Witt vs. Bryan Barberena. What a night of fights we have to share with you, join us to discuss all the action…
