Podcast owned, operated & recorded by Stephie Haynes, John S. Nash, & Eugene S. Robinson | Bloody Elbow Presents Podcast Producer: Stephie Haynes; Production Manager, Syndication: June M. Williams

The format of the show:

  • Review our UFC San Antonio ‘Cares’ while offering up reactions to bouts from that event.
  • Announce each fight on the upcoming UFC 287 PPV card, quickly commenting on which fights are “HOT”, and which fights are “NOT” – by indicating if they care about the bout or not. (This is based on several criteria, including relevancy to the sport as a whole).

This format of “Caring” or “Not Caring” about each bout is geared to our listeners who consider themselves to be “Casual MMA Fans”. We endeavor to steer you toward fights which affect rankings, title contention, possess significant meaning, or are sure to be “must see tv” exciting fights; therefore saving you the tedium of watching every fight on every card – or perhaps missing out on something you might have otherwise skipped.
