    Round 52 - Bellator 274 Press Coverage & Exclusive Interviews with Logan Storley and Davion Franklin

    This weekend, Inside The Clinch had the honor of attending their first live event as part of the Media Team. It was an incredible experience and we look forward to returning for future events. Nonetheless, this past weekend was stacked with events in every major promotion including UFC, Bellator, BKFC, Boxing, & more!

    We also have the honor of being joined by Bellator's main event winner, Logan Storley. He pulled off a big upset with a 5 round UD against Neiman Gracie. He won just about every round and had the fans jumping out of their seats! He is looking for that title shot next and he sure has earned it.

    To conclude the show, we are also being joined by Davion Franklin, the 5-0 heavyweight quickly climbing the Bellator Heavyweight rankings. He faced his biggest test to date and passed with flying colors. He shared that he was sick with bronchitis going into this fight, and was still able to throw volume and power well into the third round. Davion announces his next fight date and shares some experiences with the Jackson Wink gym.

    Round 51 - UFC 270 Recap, Eagle FC 44 Recap, Bellator 273 Recap, Strickland vs Hermansson Prediction, & more!

    On this weeks episode the guys give their reactions to an epic UFC 270 card- the first PPV event of 2022 and it delivered. Francis Ngannou gets the job done and defeats his former training partner Ciryl Gane but with his wrestling?? What does this mean for Ngannou’s future in the UFC and does he now have leverage? In the co main, the flyweights battle it out for the 3rd time, and once again, they deliver in spectacular fashion. Does it make sense to make a 4th Brandon Moreno vs  Deiveson Figueiredo fight? Michael Pierra, Said Nurmagomedov, and Michael Morales each pick up dubs in exciting fashion. What a great start to the new year! 

    With the absence of UFC last week we had all our eyes on Khabibs promotion.  Eagle FC as they now officially had their first event in the USA - Eagle FC 44. Bellator 273 featuring Ryan Bader vs Valentin Moldavsky and Benson Henderson vs Islam Mamedov. Though an overall exciting event it was filled with many controversial decisions. 

    Fortunately the UFC is back this weekend! The guys give their official thoughts and predictions on the main fight- Sean Strickland vs Jack Hermanson

Great podcast

This is a great podcast and my favorite for keeping up with everything happening with mma and ufc. Jonathon and Eric really stay up to date and know what they are talking about. They have interesting takes and interviews with guys in the ufc. I would recommend to anyone who follows ufc or wants to know more about the sport

Great hosts! For true fans of the sport! 👊🏼

Listened to “Round 7”. Epic intro! Love the music and announcer. You too have really done your homework. The love and energy you have for the MMA sport is definitely felt. The chemistry and humor between you two great. Love a good debate and the fact that you both don’t always agree and have differing opinions makes for a good conversation.

This podcast is like news reporting for all things MMA, but it feels like having a drink and talking with two of your Bros. Fighting sports have changed over the years so it is awesome to have content like this that keeps you up to date.

I agree with you that fighters who are not active should not be in the pound for pound rankings. The suggestions you make for the fighters are spot on. It’s good to be able to see the octagon from all angles.

This podcast is for the true UFC fan. Enthusiasts who care about the sport and want to know where it’s going for the future.

I don’t like it

I don’t like hockey, so why is there a podcast about it
