    Ben Askren, Shawn Bunch, Mike Kogan, & AJ Matthews Read more

    in Sports

    This week the show is kicking off the show is a man who could have arguably the best wrestling in the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. Our first guest is undefeated in his MMA career, has defended his championship belt 4 times and is 9-0 under the Bellator banner. “Funky” Ben Askren is opening up the show and we have plenty to talk about. 
    When it comes to world-class wrestlers Bellator has A “Bunch,” I don’t mean a bunch as in a number I mean a “Bunch” as in Shawn “Bunch The Great” Bunch. Shawn isn’t the typical Wrestler who came to MMA after their time on the mat was over, this has been a part of the plan for a very long time. Shawn about made the crossover to MMA back in 2009, but decided to try and make one more run at the Olympics. 
    Our next guest is a man who represents some of the biggest names in the sport of Mixed Martial Arts. If you have ever seen Roy Nelson, King Mo, or Jason High fight well it’s because of Mike Kogan. Mike is one of the sports top managers and the list of his clients could go on and on. We could have easily filled a full hour with Mike about his insight into the game but we only have him for a single segment. 
    AJ Matthews is back this week and even though we saw AJ lose his fight on last weeks episode we still have plenty of Fight Master to watch and discuss. We will talk to AJ about the shoulder injury, dealing with being injured while on the show, and the things we didn’t get to talk about last week like; getting ready for a fight with a new team, how he handled the weight cut leading up to his fight, and of course the nerves leading up to actually walking into the cage.

That’s right he’s undefeated with 4 wins coming by way of submission and his last by way of TKO. 
     
    It’s nothing new to hear about a wrestling standout making the switch to MMA fighter, but rarely do we hear about a boxer dropping the lace up gloves for the 4 oz style. Our second guest is a man who is doing just that. San Diego Heavyweight boxer Rich Power was billed as Americas next great white hype and now is making the crossover to the cage. Rich is a man who has the power and speed to make an immediate impact on the sport. 
    Kicking off hour two is a man we told you to watch out for a long time ago and we are not changing our stance anytime soon. Isaac De Jesus is back on the show and set to be back in the Tachi Palace cage. Isaac is a man who brings a lot of stand up and kickboxing experience with him into the cage.

    This week we kick things off with a man who has become a staple of FIST-ta-CUFF Radio over the year, and all we can say is get ready for the “NewBreed.” Erik Koch is opening the show and we can’t wait. Koch is set to take on Dustin Poirier August 31 at UFC 164.    Our next guest has no problem rolling over the competition and with that being said his nickname fits him perfectly. Pascal “Panzer” Krauss is our second guest of the night and the second guest set to step in the Octagon at UFC 164. Pascal’s journey into combat sports started when he began boxing at 14.   This year was the first year of Bellator testing the waters with their brand and reality TV combining to make “Fight Master.” Everyone waited to see who would be a part of the show, how the show would actually look when the final product was finished, and if it could breathe new life into the MMA reality world.AJ has been our man on the inside of the warehouse all season and we couldn’t be more proud of him and how he has shown heart and grit all season.

    Tiffany Van Soest, Ulysses Gomez, Nick Piedmont, AJ Matthews

    in MMA

    Tick Tick Tick BOOM!!!! You should already know what that means, yep Tiffany “Time Bomb” Van Soest is back at the shop and this girl is blowing up! Tiffany is set to step in the ring October 13th, at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV for the leading Muay Thai promotion in the US Lion Fight Promotions. she will take on a veteran and all around martial artist in Jeri Sitzes.  
    Our next guest made his UFC debut on very short notice, but we aren’t having him on to talk about MMA, Ulysses “Useless” Gomez is stopping in to talk grappling.  Useless is a beast on the mat and that’s why we figured it would be a good idea to have him on to break down the upcoming Metamoris BJJ event. 
    Nick “Nicky P” Piedmont is ready to scrap come Friday October 12, at the Commerce Casino. I know Nick’s nickname is “No Limit” but Nicky P just has a ring to it we can’t shake. What might get shook is his opponent come October 12. Nick is taking on Sevak Magakian and the experience might be in Sevak’s favor, but Nick has never worried about that. 
     AJ Matthews is set to make his third fight in a row for Bellator, and the man is looking to make it a Hat-trick in the form of wins. Charlie Rader was on the recieving side of a vicous KO from AJ in his last fight, and I can only hope AJ plans to trump that win this time around. AJ is training out of Alliance and that means we have plenty to talk about.
