Vanessa Demopoulos Interview (2:04)

To kick off this week’s show, Gumby sits down with Vanessa Demopoulos as she gets ready for her fight on January 15th. She talks about her mentality surrounding MMA and the tough times that came following her Contender Series and LFA losses. She also discusses her feelings on her short notice debut and why she’s so happy to be back at her natural weight. And, of course, she discusses her upcoming fight at UFC Vegas 46 and why she thinks she has an advantage over Silvana Juarez Gomez.

End of the Year Champion Predictions (13:02)

Each of every year Gumby and Shockwave hit you with their predictions on who will be champion when the new calendar strikes January 1st. We may not have foreseen that so many new champions, and even interim champions, would be crowned this year, but we’re going to make out predictions for the next year anyways. As usual, one of our host is expecting a few more changes in the title climate than the other. And one of the hosts has some longshot picks that you may not have seen coming. Don’t miss this segment and be sure to shout at the hosts on Twitter about it.

TJ Brown Interview (31:22)

Just like Vanessa Demopoulos, TJ Brown will also be competing on the January 15th UFC Vegas 46 card. Also like Demopoulos, he joined TTP this week for a chat. He talked about the relief of getting a win over Kai Kamaka by split decision when he was 0-2 so far in the UFC. He also shared why he (and seemingly everyone who joins the team) jives so well with James Krause at Glory MMA and Fitness. He then shared a little bit about how he expects his upcoming fight to go with Gabriel Benitez. Check it out.
