The MMA Mad Podcast

I'm currently uploading this from an AirBnB in Valencia, about halfway through my Spanish expedition. We've tackled Madrid y Avila and Ibiza is awaiting our arrival. But if you think that's going to stop me from uploading a podcast this week, you are sadly mistaken.

First, a little Outside The Bubble w/Monica to discuss Mighty Mouse, Matt Hughes and more. Then, I'm joined by my friend Ben, and later Nico, Guillermo and Alyssa to discuss La Tomatina, Real Madrid vs. Valencia, and the differences between Spanish and American culture.

Really cool episode, check it out!!

We took the podcast setup on a little road trip to Providence. Well... part of the podcast setup anyway. Your faithful host forgot to bring the cables that connected the microphones to the recorder, so we were forced to record on my iPhone.

*Sorry for the lesser audio quality*

The conversation was great though!! Perfect PartyCast, bouncing from topic to topic with two of my best friends and top bantamweight prospect Dinis Paiva - better known as "Sweetbread" to fans. We talked a little McGregor Mayweather but the rest was all over the place in the best possible way.

We're coming back strong after a little break and you won't be disappointed in the results.

First, I take a trip down to Jimmie Rivera's gym in NYC to discuss everything from UFC Long Island to a possible title shot in the near-future. It was a really cool space, you guys should check it out!

Then, my friend Matteo Urella returns for a conversation about all things MMA and podcasting. He's been one of my biggest creative influences for years and the first guest to ever tackle the long-form conversational style on this show. For those unfamiliar, you will love him. Everyone else already knows what's up.

This was not a good episode... It was a GREAT episode. Two of our favorite and most frequent guests join me for truly amazing conversations. And I don't say that lightly.

First, Cortney Casey joined me to talk about the whole Texas Athletic Commision fiasco. We also got deep into the importance of exciting fights and the effects of a concussion, recap the events of UFC 214, and much more. With a hot dog and slice of pizza in tow, Cortney delivered an awesome podcast appearance from the parking lot of a Costco.

Then, my absolute favorite interview with Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson. His podcast appearances are well into the double digits now and none come close to the depth of this one. Nearly an hour of exploring the mentality of a truly elite mixed martial artist. Seriously guys, this one is a MUST LISTEN.

Finally, shout out to Kevin (Coast To Coast) for giving me three hours of his time, only to have the recording malfunction after the fact. It was a great appearance. Next one will be better.
