Our first guest is set to make his World Series of Fighting debut against Strikeforce Vet Gesias Cavalcante. That’s right Tyson Griffin is kicking off the show and we are looking forward to talking to Tyson about his career, and the new multi-fight deal he just signed with the WSOF. Tyson is a veteran in the game with wins over some of the best in the sport. We will talk to him about getting ready for this fight against Cavalcante, signing with the WSOF, of course we have to talk about the early days of his career, and what his goals are inside this sport at this stage of his career.

It’s been a while since our last guest was on the show or in the cage, but “The Diablita” is ready for both. Michele Gutierrez is set to take on Jordan Nicole Gaza on August 23rd in North Dakota, for Crowbar MMA. Michele has not been in the cage since April of 2012 at Invicta FC 1. We will talk with Michele about the time off, being back at Alliance MMA, and what her goals are inside the sport of Women’s MMA. Michele is looking to get back to having her hand raised and we will talk with her about how often we will see her in the cage now that she is back in the gym and training. Get ready for an interview with Michele that you won’t get anywhere but right her on BJPenn.com from FIST-ta-CUFF Radio and make sure to follow Michele on Twitter @mgutierrezlv
Bellator’s new reality show “Fight Master” was back this week and we are past the fights to enter the house. We have our man on the inside AJ Matthews back in the shop to talk about the things we got a chance to see on the televised part of the show, but AJ is also here to share what we did not get a chance to see. This week we saw the fighters move into the warehouse, which is the same building where the fights took place in. We will talk with AJ about how Coach Shamrock’s last spot on his team was filled. The show this week featured two fights, one being AJ’s teammate. We will get his thoughts on the fights that happened as well as his thoughts on the bracket system used by the show. Follow AJ on Twitter @AJ_MMA
The man wrapping up the show is also the same man looking to dethrone the UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson. John has been waiting for his shot at UFC gold and this fight was rescheduled to take place on July 27, 2013 at UFC on Fox 8. John has been on a very nice winning streak and has a lot of momentum coming into his title shot. We will talk to John about his life before fighting and his journey to get to this point, his days wrestling in college, and of course how he feels he matches up against the champ. John is training out of the MMA Lab and we will discuss what he has done differently heading into this fight, if this fight brings any new nerves with it, and much more.
