Tristan Connelly Interview (2:44)

This week’s episode gets kicking with an interview with Canadian standout Tristan Connelly. He dishes on what it was like to make his debut against a fighter doing crazy flips, spinning kicks, and cage superman punches. Plus, he talks about the difficulty of being up a weight class on just five days notice. And as wild of a debut as that was, Connelly then shared the wild road he’s been on since – leading up to his second UFC fight. The result of the crazy road? A two weight class drop down as he makes his featherweight debut. Make sure to tune in for all of this one because it’s a good one.

Fights, Dogs, and Parlays: UFC 261 (26:21)

Gumby and Shockwave, as always, are hitting you with the top notch advice. If you’re debating who to pick in any of this weekend’s three title fights, they have you covered. Is there any way that Masvidal changes the tune of the welterweight rematch? Can Rose stay away from the power of Weili? Does Andrade have the takedowns to make it interesting with Valentina? They’ll answer all of these questions and also give you underdogs and parlays to make your wallet fat this weekend.

Jeff Molina Interview (43:44)

And the show closes with an interview with Glory MMA and Fitness flyweight, Jeff Molina. He talks about his issues with getting his UFC debut under his belt after winning his contract on the Contender Series. Then he dives into a discussion about just what makes James Krause so special and, furthermore, what helps him connect with the hottest coach in MMA right now. All of that, plus he dishes on what it is like to prepare for an opponent when there is so little tape on them.
