Adrian Yanez Interview (2:40)

On this week’s episode, Gumby gets us started by chatting with rising prospect Adrian Yanez. Yanez talks not just about getting a big head kick KO and a performance bonus in his debut, but getting to do so on the same card as an idol of his. He also digs into his BJJ black belt in the gi and why he doesn’t grapple more often that he does – not that he has needed to lately. And, of course, there will also be some chatting about his main card slot opposite Gustavo Lopez.

Fights, Dogs, and Parlays: UFC Vegas 22 (21:49)

You’ve come to know and love it – Fights, Dogs, and Parlays is back for UFC Vegas 22. They’ll start by breaking down the headliner between Derek Brunson and Kevin Holland and sharing some really strong opinions on the lines. Plus, they’ll get into some of the other top fights including some Gregor Gillespie talk and the always popular Tai Tuivasa. Not only are Gumby and Shockwave giving you all their thoughts on some interesting matchups, but they’ll also be looking at which underdogs they think are ripe for the picking and putting together a parlay to make you wallet fat.

Anthony Birchak Interview (35:06)

Although his original opponent fell out, Gumby still wanted to share his interview with Anthony Birchak. Birchak discussed his now cancelled fight with Johnny Eduardo, but also shared a number of other nuggets. He talked about how he’s gotten back to what he’s good at in the cage and how he thinks that can lead to a positive run here towards the tail end of his career. Plus, he goes in depth on what made him leave the UFC in the first place and his thoughts on his time in Japan. Our man holds nothing back, so you aren’t going to want to miss this one.
