    157 Tecia Torres, Todd Vance, & Shah Bobonis

    in MMA

    Show 157 kicks off with the alarms sounding, it feels like a Tornado is getting ready to touch down in the shop… I hope you guys are ready for this. Tecia “The Tiny Tornado” Torres is opening things up, and you know how much we love to talk WMMA! Tecia is set to make her Pro MMA Debut at Invicta FC 3, October 6 in Kansas City. She is set to take on Kaiyana Rain who is also making her pro-debut. This might be her pro debut but she is far from a rookie. Get ready for a storm, cause The Tiny Tornado is here. Follow Tecia on twitter @TeciaTorres
    Stepping into the cage might be one of the hardest things for anyone to do in their life, but overcoming PTSD or Post Traumatic Stress Disorder caused by War is something no one should have to battle and overcome. Our next guest Todd Vance did just that and is helping others to do the same. Todd has a very interesting story and one that involves a lot of Martial Arts. Todd took his first Muay Thai fight at just 16 years old in the Southern Cali area and amassed an amateur record of 11-1.
    It was not very long ago that we had Shah Bobonis on to announce that he was going to be scrapping for the XFC. Well guess what it all goes down next Friday September 28 and I can’t wait! Not only is Shah riding a 5 fight win streak into this fight, but the man is 8-2 in his last ten fights. Inside the cage Shah Floats like a butterfly, with the mouth of Ali.   Follow Shah on twitter @ShahBobonis

    NOI Series: Richard Hassan, NOI Pioneer (since 1949) in Philly Mosque No. 12

    in Culture

    The Allah Team Radio presents: The History of the NOI Series

    Interview with RICHARD HASSAN 
    (NOI Pioneer since 1949) 

    The Historical Origins of Philly Mosque No. 12 & Atlanta Mosque No. 15 

    In 1949, after being in prison with the Hon. Elijah Muhammad in Washington, DC, a barber named Mr. Charlie X Simms, returned to his barbershop in Philadelphia where he started teaching a group of youth, among them Jeremiah Shabazz, Karriem Muhammad and Richard Hassan. From there these NOI Pioneers would start the beginning of Muhammad's Mosque No. 12.


    As young brothers, Richard Hassan, Jeremiah Shabazz and others established and moved in "The FOI House". The Hon. Elijah Muhammad sent Min. Malcolm X (and subsequently Capt. Yusef Shah) to live with them in the FOI House and establish Malcolm's first Ministry as Philadelphia became a training ground for other NOI greats including Min. Louis Farrakhan, Imam W.D. Mohammed and Min. James Shabazz. 

    Bro. Richard Hassan will walk us through his first-hand experiences as a part of this inner circle, the history of Mosque #12, and how Min. Malcolm, Min. Jeremiah, Min. James X, himself and others established Mosque #15 in Atlanta in the Deep South.


    Join us to hear the testimony of this Great NOI Pioneer about his powerful experiences!

    in Sports

    The Pound4Pound Kings of Boxing Broadcast Journalism. ONTHEGRiND BOXiNG is the world's number 1 boxing podcast, and blogtalkradio's original boxing program.

    ONCE UPON A TIME WE HAD A COUNTRY

    in Politics

    I was speaking to a gentleman who as a boy witnessed the disintegration of Lebanon. Once known as the Paris of the Middle East. The banking center of the Arab world. He was about ten years old and this is what he recalled. The electricity went out and when it came back on there were tanks in the street and the country had a new government. When the bullets stopped flying everything was rubble. He and his brother moved to Iran under the Shah. He said Iran was like paradise. The people were happy and prosperous. They were modern. He blames Jimmy Carter for what happened to Iran and says he should be hanged for what he did.I recall Jimmy carter when the Shah was exiled he did not want to let him in. Then like in Lebanon the lights went out and when they came back on the Ayatollahs were in charge and the war with Iraq began. His brother was a commercial airline pilot and he was just retuning to Teheran. He was in the pilots lounge when when he was ordered to make a short flight. He walked out to the aircraft and it was packed with children standing room only. He asked where are the children going. He was told they are going to the battlefield to walk thru minefields. Now he is here in New York for many years. He loves the south. He told me that during the war of 1812 South Carolina sent more troops to fight for us than the entire New England states. Do American kids know that?. He respects red necks a term for hard working farmers with sunburns. Now he is afraid of what he escaped from twice is now here in the USA.out. George Washingtom sent Trump, Cruz and Carson.
