Ep.79: Matt Bessette & Duane Finley


This episode was all over the place, but I’m tremendously proud of it. Two somber interviews with some laughs in between for balance. Enjoy!!

(4:43) Matt Bessette sheds some light on the frustrations involved with being on the cusp of a UFC call-up. He’s at a crossroads that reaches beyond a simple career decision. This is about his life. Somber interview but an important one. Hopefully the precursor to an Octagon debut.

(27:47) The debut of Outside The Bubble w/Monica!! In this (likely to become a recurring) segment, I spoke with my roommate who knows little to nothing about the world of MMA to get some predictions for the UFC 205 title fights. The predictions were based on intangible factors that can only be seen by someone who truly lies outside the bubble. So place your bets accordingly!!

(40:20) Duane Finley is the Senior Editor for FloCombat. He’s also a close friend of the late Josh Samman. I wanted to speak with him about Josh and gain some perspective on the tragedy from someone who knew him so well. This was a powerful one.

(53:33) In this week’s After Show, I got into everything from Hilary vs. Trump and TV Talk to the Dallas Cowboys and Greg Hardy’s MMA debut.
