Too bad

Very solid mma knowledge, but he has absolutely zero self awareness. Constantly making racist and sexist comments then lectures the world on racism and sexism. Try not mocking Jewish people and making some sexist comment on every female fighter out there if you’re going to lecture the world.

Top 3 podcast

Dan Tom is one of my top mma pod cast with protect ya neck. I love when he goes on a tangent and apologizes for it. His break down of fighters is perfect some I disagree with but majority of the time I will follow him off the edge.... thank you joseph d.

The Best Analyst you don’t know

Dan is the 100% the best analyst you haven’t heard of. If you’re a bettor, a fan of the sport, or just want to preview the upcoming card, this one of the best places to go. It’s a top 3 MMA podcast. More in depth than Anik and Florian, DC and Helwani, whoever.

I’m a big Dan Hardy fan, and Dan Tom is the only analyst I’ve come across that’s on his level. Outstanding pod.
