    Tune In at 7pm For Another Edition of Alchemist Radio

    in Sports

    Tonight on Alchemist Radio, hosts Bryan Levick will speak to former UFC middleweight title contender and TUF season one contestant Nate Quarry. Also joining the show will be Titan FC CEO Jeff Aronson who will discuss this past Friday night's Titan FC 27 event.

    Quarry is best known for his time on the first season of The Ultimate Fighter and working his way up the middleweight ladder to earn a shot at then champion Rich Franklin back in November of 2005 at UFC 56. These days Quarry is busy being a single dad and working on his comic book, "Zombie Cage Fighter."

    Aronson is riding high after a very successful first event in Kansas City this past weekend. Titan FC 27 was Aronson's first foray as a promoter and the card which was televised live on the CBS Sports Network featured five finishes out of seven fights. Titan FC 28 is scheduled for April and will feature a light heavyweight bout between Vinny Magalhaes and Jason Brilz. Mike Ricci, who defeated Jorge Gurgel via 1st round TKO at Titan FC 27, will return to face George Sotiropoulos.

    Speaking of Ricci he will join the show to discuss his dominating win over Gurgel and what he expects from Sotiropoulos. The win over Gurgel improved Ricci's record to 9-4 and no doubt caught the attention of fans and UFC executives. It will be a quick turnaround for Ricci, but Tri-Star head coach Firas Zahabi will no doubt have the 27-year-old Montreal native ready for April.

He has a record of 27-10 and will look to win his 28th fight when he faces Jose Figueroa on the main card of Titan FC 31. Stinson certainly knows how to finish his fights as he has won 19 by KO/TKO and six via submission. They will lead off the televised portion of the card which will air on the CBS Sports Network beginning at 10pm EST. Figueroa is a former M-1 lightweight champion and presents a tough test for Stinson.

    in Sports

    Tonight on Alchemist Radio Bryan Levick welcomes three young and exciting fighters along with the sport’s most powerful woman.

    Anthony Birchak was the reigning MFC bantamweight champion, but is now preparing to make his UFC debut at UFC 177 this Saturday night against Joe Soto on the preliminary card. You can watch Birchak, who is one of the most exciting fighters in the sport on Fox Sports One.

    Chas Skelly is coming off his first UFC victory this past Saturday night against Tom Niinimaki at UFC Fight Night 49. That win evened his UFC record at 1-1, but he’s got little time to savor the win as he is stepping in on short notice to face Sean Soriano at UFC Fight Night 50 on September 5th.

    Keith Johnson defeated Mike Bronzoulis via third round rear naked choke at Titan FC 29 this past Friday night on the CBS Sports Network. The welterweight was making his Titan FC debut and was very impressive, controlling the fight from the opening bell.

    Shannon Knapp is preparing for Invicta FC 8 which will take place on September 6th and be headlined by a bout between Atomweight champion Michelle Waterson and Yasuko Tamada. In the co-main event Stephanie Eggink and Katja Kankaanpaa for the strawweight title that was vacated by Carla Esparza who is now competing on TUF 20 for the UFC 115lb. title.

    Ludwig, Poirier, Dodson, Iaquinta on Alchemist Radio

    in Sports

    Wednesday night on Alchemist Radio, hosts Mitch Ciccarelli and Bryan Levick talk to five exciting guests in the world of mixed martial arts. The current lineup includes Team Alpha Male head coach/UFC veteran Duane “BANG” Ludwig, UFC flyweight contender and TUF 14 winner John Dodson, UFC featherweight Dustin Poirier, UFC lightweight and TUF 15 finalist Al Iaquinta and BJJ black belt Fred Moncaio!
    Ludwig joins us fresh off the heels of UFC Fight Night 26 where one of his premier fighters, Urijah Faber defeated Iuri Alcantara in a thrilling three round battle. Ludwig has done incredible work for Team Alpha Male since becoming the head coach and the camp’s winning streak is looking to continue at UFC 164 as Chad Mendes battles Clay Guida.
    Dodson is arguably the most athletically gifted fighter in the flyweight division. Currently ranked third in the division, Dodson gave champion Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson all he could handle at UFC on FOX 6 in January but ultimately dropped a decision to the champ. Dodson will look to work his way back up the ladder as he squares off with Darrell Montague at UFC 166 in October.
    At 24 years of age, Poirier is still considered one of the brightest young stars in the UFC’s featherweight division. His only losses are to elite featherweights Cub Swanson and Chan Sung Jung and to rising lightweight star Danny Castillo. Poirier is looking to make a claim at the top of the division as he battles top ranked Erik Koch at UFC 164.
    Speaking of UFC 164, our next guest Al Iaquinta takes on Ryan Couture in hopes of earning his first UFC victory. Iaquinta was a finalist on TUF 15 and one of the best fighters to come out of that season. He was defeated by Michael Chiesa in the finale but make no mistake about it, Iaquinta is a force to be reckoned with at 155 lbs.
    Moncaio is a BJJ black belt and undefeated MMA prospect. Pro debut this weekend.

Woodley has been a man on a mission and is determined more than ever to become the next welterweight champion.

    Dennis Bermudez will look to extend his winning streak to 7 when he faces Clay Guida at UFC on Fox 12 in San Jose on July 26. The Long Island resident has captured 4 bonuses in his 7 UFC fights.

    Saturday night in Las Vegas, Moraes chopped down Josh Rettinghouse with some nasty leg kicks and put together some nice combinations to become the first WSOF bantamweight champion. Moraes has now won seven fights in a row and is 5-1 in the WSOF. At 25-years-old the future looks extremely bright for Moares.

    Gordon trains alongside UFC fighters Al Iaquinta, Gian Villante and UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman at the Serra/Longo gym. Gordon possesses a 6-1 record and has fought primarily for the New Jersey based Ring of Combat promotion. You can see Gordon alongside all of the other UFC hopefuls beginning April 16. The coaches are former UFC lightweight and welterweight champion BJ Penn and the man who won the lightweight title from him, Frankie Edgar.

    Ludwig was named 2013 Coach of the Year at the World MMA Awards because of his great work with the fighters at Team Alpha Male. Fighters such as TJ Dillashaw, Urijah Faber, Joseph Benavidez, Chad Mendes, Danny Castillo and TUF 18 winner, Chris Holdsworth have all sung Ludwig’s praises and credited him for helping them achieve great things since he took over the team. Ludwig helped  lead both Faber and Benavidez to title fights, but both were unsuccessful in their attempts. He recently announced he’d be stepping down as their head coach so he could move his family back to Colorado where he would start his own gym.
