Lupita Godinez Interview (2:23)

To kick off the show this week, Gumby is sitting down with Lupita Godinez who is making her promotional debut at UFC Vegas 24 – on short notice no less. She’ll be taking on former UFC strawweight title challenger Jessica Penne, which is no easy task for her first bout. Godinez shares how she feels about the contest and that she knows she’ll be ready. For those that had seen her LFA title victory over Vanessa Demopolous, you know she isn’t kidding. She also shared her pre-fight routine to loosen up, and it’s a unique one.

Fights, Dogs, and Parlays: UFC Vegas 24 (15:19)

Gumby and Shockwave have been dropping winners into your ears week after week after week. If you aren’t tuning in for their favorite segment on the show yet, you’ve been missing out. On this week’s breakdown, they give you what you need to know about a not-so close to call main event, but a very tough co-main. Jeremy Stephens is riding a 5-fight winless streak and is bumping up a division. How do they like him to fair given the circumstances? Only one way to find out. Plus, as always they are hitting you with an underdog and a parlay to make that wallet good and fat for spring break.

Julius Anglickas Interview (29:25)

To close out the night, the Lithuanian-born Julius Anglickas stops by the show. He prepares for his Friday contest against Gregory Millard at Bellator 257. He talks about that fight and how he sees it as a possible reserve fight for the light heavyweight grand prix that is in full swing. He also talks about the new Bellator ranking system and what he thinks about having rankings in place at all. His take is not one you hear often, so you’re going to want to tune in.
