Call in to speak with the host
On this edition of Beards on MMA, we welcome Jon Jones. Not that Jon Jones, but Jon Jones. Which Jon Jones? Why, Jon Jones from New York. Wait what? This Jon Jones is completely unconnected to MMA - He's an Outsourcing Manager in Video Gaming. Last September, he inadvertently rose to prominence when UFC 151 was canceled, and he started to receive a steadier than usual stream of hate, insults and general threats. Rather than ignoring it all, he's taken it in good humor, even dishing back. In some cases, people even fail to see he's not the UFC's Jon Jones and continue their tirades. Why you ask? He's the owner of Twitter handle @jonjones - That's why. What makes this guy tick, and what keeps him in such good spirits despite all the unnecessary hate? Has Bones ever acknowledged his existence? We'll see. Following that, we welcome on World Series of Fighting's Jade Porter. Jade makes his promotional debut at the upcoming World Series of Fighting 6 card against Alexandre Pimental. Both fighters have not fought in around 6 months, and we'll talk to Jade about signing with WSOF, what it means for his future, and how he's approaching his fight.
(NOTE: JADE PORTER WAS UNABLE TO MAKE THE SHOW AND IS BEING RESCHEDULED)
We'll also talk briefly about UFC Fight Night 29 tomorrow, including the twisted tale of Thiago Silva, and if we get time, the recent sponsorship woes lamented by the likes of Cole Miller and Renan Barao's management. How can you resolve this issue? Pro Matt has an idea, which seems easy in theory, but is probably far more difficult than his feeble mind can comprehend.
