The MMA Word mixed martial arts podcast returns this week on Fightline.com after a very packed weekend of fights, from KSW, Legacy FC, One FC, World Series of Fighting, Invicta and The UFC. This week my guest is Jim Genia, and here’s what we discuss on this week’s show:
–We recap the busy weekend of fights, and breakdown the action from UFC Fight Night 33, and the epic war that was Hunt vs Bigfoot. We discuss where Shogun Rua stands in the light heavyweight division with his knockout of James Te Huna, and we also talk about the best performances coming out of Invicta FC 7 and WSOF 7 on Saturday Night.
–We also discuss what’s holding up MMA legislation in the state of New York, and the UFCs efforts to get an event held in the state. ***Spoiler Alert** I don’t watch the show Boardwalk Empire.
–We close out the show with a preview of this weekend’s UFC on Fox 9, headlined by a flyweight title fight between champion Demetrious Johnson and challenger Joseph Benavidez, and also features Lauzon vs Danzig, and Faber vs. McDonald.
