Your Talented Trio of Hosts

- Review our ‘Cares’ while offering up our UFC Fight Night ‘Holloway vs Allen’ reactions to bouts from that event.
- Announce each fight on the upcoming UFC Vegas 71 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.
If you haven’t taken a few moments to check out the WorkShyIndividual.com site, it is truly impressive, informative, and superbly compiled and displayed. We bow down to the talents of Mr. Beaton Finley in his voluntary & passionate efforts to track the stats for our show.~ June M. Williams: BE Production Mgr, Ombudsperson, Podcast Syndication & Lead Fixer
