Hector Lombard Interview - WOW

Posted 7/18/2012 5:07:00 PM

I spoke today to Fighter's Fury show favorite Hector Lombard, as he prepares for his UFC debut this Saturday. He will take on Tim Boetsch in the UFC 149 co-main event.

Hector has nothing but respect for a well conditioned, durable opponent like Boetsch. However, he is none too pleased with Mark Munoz recently saying he "recycled cans" in Bellator, and has a few choice words for MMA journalist Ariel Helwani.

My audio interview with Hector is attached to this blog. Look to the right side of the page and click play under his picture. The FIREWORKS start at the 2:30 mark, so make sure you listen to the duration. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Make sure you watch UFC 149 at a Quarterdeck Restaurant if you are in South Florida. I'll be at QDeck Sawgrass checking out all the action.



Mike Pierce Interview - UFC on FX 3

Posted 6/7/2012 12:08:00 PM

This week I caught up with the guy I consider to be the most underappreciated talent in the UFC's Welterweight division, Mike Pierce. He's fighting this Friday night at Ft Lauderdale's Bank Atlantic Center, at UFC on FX: Johnson vs. McCall.

Pierce will face tough Brazilian welterweight Carlos Eduardo Rocha. Before this bout was signed, Pierce made an interesting challenge, calling out any Brazilian welterweight. Well, he got his wish.

Mike and I discuss his recent misfortunes on the scorecards, his bout with Rocha, and his thoughts on South Florida so far.

Rashad Evans Interview

I had the chance to sit down with former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans for an exclusive interview. Rashad is an official "ambassador" for the UFC, promoting this weekend's live fight card at Ft. Lauderdale's Bank Atlantic Center.

Rashad and I discuss what's next for him after an unsuccessful bid for the title, the tough dudes he trains with at Team Blackzillians, his thoughts on Jon Jones' DWI arrest, and why Rashad doesn't lose any sleep when fans boo him or trash him on the internet. This is truly a must listen, as Rashad is one of the most insightful guys in the fight game today.

Dominick Cruz Interview

Posted 3/22/2012 4:36:00 PM

I spent 8 fun minutes today chatting with UFC Bantamweight Champion and TUF Live Coach Dominick Cruz. Cruz and I discuss tomorrow night's TUF matchup between Justin Lawrence and Christiano Marcello, the curveball he threw on live TV last week, and his bitter rivalry with opposing coach Urijah Faber.

Let me promise you one thing: Cruz doesn't pull any punches when I ask him about Faber. When I ask him his response to Faber saying he was robbed when they fought last July, Cruz says "Urijah is blind and he's a whiny baby." And that's just a small sample. To hear the rest, you've gotta listen to the interview.

TUF Live airs this and every Friday at 10:00PM EST on FX.
