cody "the bear" johnle ,

great listen!

great podcast with some humor about my two favorite things, alcohol and mma. bill welker knows his stuff

DirtyTaint717 ,

Highly knowledgeable closet hipster

A go to podcast for anyone who didn’t catch the fight. Pun game is pretty weak, but Bill definitely knows MMA. Great job explaining other promotions too. Despite declaring he isn’t a hipster, Bill tests coming out of the hipster closet with his talk of sour beers, pumpkin ales, and brewery tours. His reviews of bourbons, tequilas, and Japanese whiskey are awesome but a clear attempt to hide the fact he keeps a bottle of beard oil in his cardigan. Jeff is a great cohost even though he mispronounces fighters names unless he wants to bang them. Who knows? It may pay off for him one day. Definitely a go to MMA podcast.
