Took a little road trip to Brooklyn to meet up with long-time podcast guest and good friend/colleague James Lynch. It was great to finally record a live one with him and there was plenty to talk about after a wild UFC 223 fight week.

Podcast favorite Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson returns to the show for another great appearance. We talk Mario Kart, Fortnight, something called PUBG and super hero movies. We even get into some MMA and his upcoming main event fight against Darren Till in Liverpool.

Jack Shore is one of the hottest prospects out of the UK right now. He was already 7-0 before facing UFC veteran Vaughan Lee in his bantamweight debut. Now he's 8-0 with a slew of finishes and his eyes on the Cage Warriors bantamweight title. Next stop: UFC.

Enjoy!!

This one was a long-time coming. UFC Featherweight Matt Bessette has been a Mount Rushmore guest of the MMA Mad Podcast for years now. He and his wife, Ashley Bessette, have become friends of mine over the years. Schedules are always tough, but we finally found time to get together for an in-person podcast.

We sat down for an hour long conversation, marking Ashley's podcast debut. She was great. Matt is always great. You guys will definitely enjoy this one.

This week, I took a trip down to West Haven, CT to meet up with Nick Newell on the Monday before his highly-anticipated return to the cage. We were joined by Justin Sumter on the mic and about 20 of his students watching along... MMA Mad's first live performance (maybe?). Nick fights in the main event of LFA 35 this Friday, March 9th and you can catch the action on AXS TV.

We were treated to a brand new Outside The Bubble with my roommate Monica, who breaks down Rose vs. Joanna and Khabib vs. Tony. We also watched the new Gunnar Nelson "Beat It" music video. Monica thinks a summer country song should be next for the Icelandic gym.

Finally, as a favor to Monica for talking soooo much MMA with me, we did a full Bachelor recap in the outro. Feel free to shut it off after the Nick Newell interview. Also feel free to listen to it and pretend like you didn't.

This episode was a lot of fun to put together.

Enjoy!!

This week, we welcomed back one of our favorites in Robbie Fox. He's exploded in popularity since we first spoke, carving out his niche at Barstool and working his ass off to get to the top. Very talented in multiple different lanes, Robbie is always a great guest. Sirius XM show coming in the near future, without question.

This week, we got into Rough N Rowdy, Podcasting, Barstool's latest drama and MMA's latest headlines. Enjoy!!

This was a fun one, enjoy!
