Greatest MMA Podcast?

Being a Mma junkie. I love that I can come into work at 5am Monday morning, open up my podcast up and seeing one of the best Mma consistently posting episodes for me to ingest.

Love this show!

As an MMA judge, I love listening to this show and hearing feedback for how the big fights in the different organizations should have been scored. Whether you are a fan, fighter, coach, ref, or judge, you will learn a lot subscribing and listening to every show. Thank you Big John and Josh for sharing your knowledge with us!

Great Analysis, Poor programming

Love the enthusiasm and expertise Josh and John bring, but really wish they’d start off their episodes with reaction to the most important fights instead of the least important. Find myself skipping ahead by 30 seconds over and over again every Sunday, trying to get past the early undercard or Belator fights, trying to get to the main card and headline fights. Great that they cover the lesser known fighters, just save them for last and start with the fights most people actually watched the night before
