The MMA Mad Podcast

I took a trip down to Fighting Arts Academy in West Haven to sit down with Justin Sumter ahead of his next fight. Justin is preparing for his return to Dana White's Contender Series, hoping to score a contract to the UFC.

We've got a double feature for you this week!

First, we were joined by Liz Carmouche - the first women to ever enter the Octagon and the first mixed martial artist to compete in New York City. She fights again on July 20th and could be one win away from a shot at the UFC Women's Flyweight Championship.

Next, we were joined by Calvin Kattar just days after his huge win against Ricardo Lamas. Calvin is now ranked as a top ten featherweight in the UFC and the future is looking bright.

Enjoy!!

This week, we were joined again by old friend of the show and Mount Rushmore guest Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson. We started off with a very candid conversation about his recent loss and his first time being knocked out, then continued to break down the Welterweight division and some upcoming matchups.

Finally, of course, we wrapped with some comic book talk, discussing Avengers: End Game, Spiderman: Far From Home and the new HBO Watchmen series.

UFC 237 was pure madness and who better to join us than fellow UFC Strawweight and Mount Rushmore guest Cortney Casey. Truly one of our favorites here at MMA Mad and this week was no different.

She also happens to be teammates with Jared Cannonier, who knocked out the great Anderson Silva in the co-main event to a chorus of boos.

This was a fun one! I traveled to FAA CT in West Haven to interview my old friend Nick Newell ahead of his fight at CES 56.

Doubled up with Dan Dubuque who is headlining that event as he fights for the CES Featherweight Championship. Dan cross-trains at FAA and it was great having him and Nick on at the same time.

Then I completed the Connecticut trifecta with MMAFighting.com's Chuck Mindenhall - the best longform writer in MMA.

Enjoy!
