Sound

Love your show but sometimes i cant heard john and then josh is blaring! 😬

Jefferson Nichols ,

My new go to.

I’ve recently found for some reason I can only listen to MMA podcasts from people who have been in the business. These guys have been in the business forever and actually understand it. One of the few podcasts where it’s not constant neckbeards bashing the ufc and Dana white for clicks from fellow neckbeards. If there is any politics its objective and pertinent. Really a breath of fresh air from the typical negative content that seems to run the media.

Likeable guys; unbiased analysis

Imagine if you could get your MMA news and analysis from an OG fighter and someone from the pioneer circle of MMA. Imagine no more, this is your show with Josh Thomson and Big John McCarthy. Let’s get it on!
