Kicking off the show is a fighter who already went through the toughest fight of her life and it was before she ever stepped into the cage. Jessica “Evil” Eye is opening up the show ready to talk about her recent signing to the UFC and her journey to get to this point in her career. Jessica is making her UFC debut against Sarah Kaufman at UFC 166 on October 19. We will talk to Jessica about her early life growing up, playing high school sports, and the day that changed her life forever. We will talk with Jessica about her current 7 fight win streak, her recent UFC signing, moving up a weight class, and taking on her third big name opponent in a row. We will also talk to her about her father’s reaction to her being signed to the UFC and much more. Follow Jessica on Twitter @jessicaevileye
They say an apple a day keeps “The Doctor” away, but I don’t think an orchard of apples could keep Kendall Grove from seeing the Doctor at Bellator 104 and lucky for you “The Doctor” is making a house call before then. Joe Vedepo is our second guest and ready to talk about his upcoming Bellator match up. Joe is a Vet in the game with his career spanning almost 10 years and stints in some of the biggest promotions in the world. We will talk with Joe about his time inside of Bellator and getting the call to take on Kendall, the invention of the Vedepo Choke, and of course we have to pick the brain of Joe when it comes to topics like the future of the sport, judging, and of course what he has learned over the years when it comes to MMA and what MMA has taught him about life.

Opening the second hour of the show is a man riding an eight fight win streak and looking to end his opponents seven fight win streak. Norman Parke is back back on the show and set to face Jon Tuck in a bout that was set to take place in April of this year. We will talk to Norman about his last fight and having his opponent changed, his upcoming bout being a rescheduled bout with Tuck, getting a chance to prepare for an opponent twice, and getting a chance to stay active. We will talk with Norman about having little time outside of the gym, his path in the UFC and getting a chance to grow into a contender, and of course if he had a chance to go home in-between his last fight and the start of this camp.
