Best MMA podcast

This is my favorite mma podcast because they actually talk about mma, but also because Jim & Matt are hilarious. This podcast really has come into it’s own, especially Matt who was a little rough in the early goings but now has smoothed out his on-air delivery and has built great chemistry with Jim. Unfiltered Army stand up!
