Appreciate Jimmy in the UK
Admission. Didn’t actually take to JS in his short stint at the UFC. Think his ‘love in’ intro with JR put me off. However, I’ve grown to love him. This show/podcast is great! Bursting with energy and informative. Rapidly becoming favourite MMA podcast from across the pond 👍🏻
Interesting and relatable
Listen at least a few times a week, and it’s very interesting to listen to and very relatable! Fully recommend it!
