Thank you for being a part of this journey of The Brandon Watlington Show! Two years of doing a show that I love and want to give me all to is a blessing and so makes me thankful for the opportunity! Plus having amazing listeners like YOU!
We're looking back over the years at the best and "what in the world" moments of The Brandon Watlington Show.
Kicking off the show is a fighter who already went through the toughest fight of her life and it was before she ever stepped into the cage. Jessica “Evil” Eye is opening up the show ready to talk about her recent signing to the UFC and her journey to get to this point in her career. Jessica is making her UFC debut against Sarah Kaufman at UFC 166 on October 19.
They say an apple a day keeps “The Doctor” away, but I don’t think an orchard of apples could keep Kendall Grove from seeing the Doctor at Bellator 104 and lucky for you “The Doctor” is making a house call before then. Joe Vedepo is our second guest and ready to talk about his upcoming Bellator match up.
Opening the second hour of the show is a man riding an eight fight win streak and looking to end his opponents seven fight win streak. Norman Parke is back back on the show and set to face Jon Tuck in a bout that was set to take place in April of this year.
Imagine being able to attend a seminar with Brandon Vera, Alex Gustafsson, Demian Maia, Erick Silva, Wilson Reis, and Stipe Miocic all in one day. Well guess what Bad Boy and Alliance MMA are making it happen on October 19, at 795 Thi
Richie and Brandon discuss life. Funny moments discussed during a half hour show. Calls to the show are welcome anytime. Please call in if you hear something that you would like to discuss with the hosts of the show. Some topics will include current events, video games, life in general and tv shows along with movies and entertainment items. Richie will constantly be asking stupid questions and I will be doing my best to answer them. He has a funny way of saying things so you want to tune into this one.
The guys talk about the rash of injuries that have hit the UFC as of late and how it impacts the sport as a whole. Also the guys look at the cards that have changed and which fights have been impacted and if it makes some of the events better or worse.
Tim Boetsch is comnig off the biggest win of his career over Okami. Tim will talk about his mindset during the fight, what he had to do to make the comeback and how it makes him feel to hear Dana White tell other fighters about Boetsch's comeback. Also he'll talk about Bisping and if he'll continue to seek that fight after Lombard, how Hector sizes up against him and the thoughts of Lombard being offered a title shot if he can beat Tim.
"I think of Dana said Hector's getting a title shot if he beats me, I think he should grant me the same thing. I want a title shot when I knock out Hector"
Brandon Vera is one of the sport's most talented fighters who never found his full potential. Brandon stays honest when he tells us about not being where he should be now, why his training is different and what about this fight with Shogun is so important. Fighting a legend or fighting on national TV.
"Everyone keeps saying it's such a huge deal, it's the main event on Fox. I don't care, the biggest thing is I'm fighting Shogun...Dude, I'm fighting Shogun, everything else is second. I'm fighting Shogun!"
"I eat, sleep, wake up thinking about Shogun."
Brandon also tells us about how his training camp changed and his thoughts on where he wants to be by the end of 2012.
The guys talk TUF live and if the format works for people who have watched the show since it's first season. Ronda Rousey is impressive, but does she have enough talent to fight against to really show her skills? The guys also tackle the all heavyweight main card of UFC 146.
Mike Dolce always gives us something to think about when it comes to nutrition and this time is no different. Check out an exclusive diet? tips that he gives MMA Weekly listeners including how he would set up YOUR day to lose weight.
Mike also tells us about the Thiago Alves fight and gives us a look behind the scenes when Vitor was told Rumble wouldn't make weight. Mike tells us what was more insulting than even him not making weight.
Brandon Vera is coming off of a big win against Eliot Marshall. Find out what was going through his mind as he almost lost by submission in the final moments of the match and what he did to mentally prepare himself to no tap out to the painful submission. Brandon also shares with us the reason he had to pull out of his fight with Thiago Silva recently and when we can expect to see him in the cage again.
