Jimmie Rivera just received some unfortunate news with the Dominick Cruz cancellation. We got into that, UFC 217 and more.

Really fun episode this week!!

First, Robbie Fox (Barstool Sports) stops by to talk UFC 217 and Barstool HQ goings-on. He's quickly become one of the site's rising stars and it's always good to catch up with him. 

Then, Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson joins us to discuss his win over Jorge Masvidal, the drama with Darren Till and a whole bunch of comic book stuff.

Plus, Monica talks Rose Namajunas, favorite holiday traditions and more on a brand new Outside The Bubble. She hops on the intro and outro, as well. Stick around to the very end for a little bonus OTB.

Enjoy!!

This is your officially unofficial UFC 217 preview show. Cortney Casey is sandwiched between an intro/outro Coast-To-Coast combo. We start by discussion some big headlines outside of MMA, then finish with a bunch of UFC topics.

Cortney Casey looks forward to her UFC 218 bout against Felice Herrig and helps me break down every fight on the UFC 217 main card.

Mount Rushmore podcast guest David St. Martin joins me for an epic conversation about his new website TheDisorderly.com. Basically, he scours the internet for any and all intriguing stories from the world of sports and entertainment, then compiles it into one easy-to-read daily post. 

In this episode, we got into his plans for the site and the vulnerability that comes with putting yourself out there, creatively. We also discussed the rise of Barstool Sports, power-hungry redditors, nerdy Halloween parties and more.

One of the best DSM appearances to date and that's saying something.

Enjoy!!

Friend of the show James Lynch is now a full-time freelance MMA journalist and I couldn't be happier for him. One of the nicest guys in the business and a GREAT podcast guest.

Oh and Wonderboy was supposed to be on. We recorded. It was a fantastic interview. But it didn't record. Sorry guys. Wonderboy is doing great by the way... in case you were wondering.

Enjoy!!

I took a trip down to Underdog MMA in Hartford to interview podcast favorite Matt Bessette and his head coach Russell Leak. We got into anything and everything both inside MMA and far outside the cage. Truly one of my favorite episodes of all time.

Ken Rodriguez has been in the podcasting game for a long time. Like... a REALLY long time. Starting back in 2008, he's gone through the ups and downs of this wild and crazy medium, ultimately arriving at MMA Dude Bro, his ironically named intellectual take on MMA podcasting.

Ken and I have crossed paths on social media for years now and it was great to finally have him on the show. If you like the MMA Mad Podcast, you'll like MMA Dude Bro and vice versa. 

Today, we talked podcasting, got into some MMA headlines/discussion of upcoming fights, and more.

Enjoy!!

Another week, another technical difficulty. After recording a fantastic interview with the streaking Anthony Smith, I discovered that one half of said recording was lost. In other words, you could basically only hear me talking to the wind for 45 minutes. Devastating to say the least. My apologies to Anthony Smith (who was a great guest!!) but we hope to have him on again.

Lucky for you guys, podcast favorite Bryan Lacey stepped in to save the day, joining me on the intro and the after show, totaling over an hour of unfiltered, unadulterated fun. Seriously guys, this was a really great appearance. 

As if that wasn't enough, we threw an interview with Scott Askham in the middle. Scott is one half of this weekend's ACB main event vs. bitter rival Luke Barnatt. Should be a great fight so don't miss it! 

I'm particularly proud of my topical outro song so please stick around to listen.

Enjoy!!
