Milestone episode of the MMA Mad Podcast!! At long last, we finally have our first active champion on the podcast.
(9:25) UFC Heavyweight Champion Stipe Miocic returns to the podcast, this time with the belt. We talk Cleveland sports, his big win over Fabricio Werdum in Brazil, and his upcoming fight against Alistair Overeem at UFC 203.
(19:40) UMMAF Official Ryan Brueggemann joins the program to discuss the current state of amateur MMA, clearing up a number of misconceptions and painting a more accurate picture of the ammy landscape. This serves as a pseudo follow-up interview from last week’s Olympic episode, so I highly recommend you check that out prior to this interview.
(53:51) Ty returns with some aftershow discussion about UFC 202, the Rory MacDonald Bellator signing, and the upcoming Condit vs. Maia FOX card.
