While you wait for this weeks episode to air on Sunday, get caught up on last Sundays episode below. You won’t be disappointed.
This week we have a great line up, the first two hours we keep things all MMA Related and in the second hour we turn it all towards Lion Fight Promotions and two of the biggest stars on the card. So get ready cause the first hour we take you down and the second hour we plan on standing you up and lighting you up on the feet.
Our first guest is looking to make an impact on the World Series of Fighting, the same way he left his mark on the XFC. Nick recently signed with the WSOF and is slated to take on Keon Caldwell as the promotions 4th event. Nick is stepping into the fight with an unbeaten record as a pro and looking to keep it that way. Nick has a story unlike anyone else in the sport up to this point. Nick was born a congenital amputee, but he has never let that stop him from his dreams nor would his mother have let him even if he wanted to. Nick is looking to take on the best in the world and continue to prove that regardless how it may look on paper, when the cage door shuts you better be ready for a fight, because Nick only knows how to bring
a fight. Get over to Twitter and follow Nick @NotoriousNewell
Our next guest is a man who has been missing from the shop for one week. AJ Matthews is back and we are ready to talk the last episode of Fight Master, Bellator MMA’s new reality show. This week is the last week of fights for contestants to win their fight to get into the house. This week we see some of the bigger name veterans step into the cage to try and become the Fight Master winner. We will talk to AJ about who got in and who didn’t, if any of the match up results came as a surprise to him, we will also discuss who AJ will have joining him on Team Couture, and of course who he saw as his biggest threat in the house. Fight Master is just getting started and I will tell you from the looks of it, this could be the MMA show of the year that you don’t want to miss out on. Get to Twitter and follow AJ @AJ_MMA
Kicking off the second hour is a man who brings the fight every time he enters the ring. Kevin “The Soul Assassin” Ross is up in the shop and ready to talk his amazing career, his upcoming fight, and of course what the future holds for The Soul Assassin.

Our last guest is no stranger to the show and has even showed you her singing skills, don’t blame me just #BlameBiggie. Tiffany “Time Bomb” Van Soest is back in the shop and ready to blow it up. Tiffany isn’t your typical lady who is all about the shoes, she also wants to collect enough belts to match the collection of shoes. This upcoming fight gives her just another opportunity as she takes on Lucy Payne in a bout for the inaugural Lion Fight Women’s Featherweight title at Lion Fight 10 in Las Vegas on July 26, 2013. We will talk to Tiffany about the fight, becoming a staple on Lion Fight cards, and of course the level in competition she is currently facing at her age. Tiffany is nothing to look past and to think she isn’t even close to her peak yet.
