Our next guest not only steps into the Legacy cage for the third time this year, but this time for the Lightweight Title and to remain undefeated. Carlos Diego Ferreira joins us as our second guest on this episode of FIST-ta-CUFF Radio. Ferreira was originally born in Manaus, Brazil. In 2009, Ferreira moved stateside, where he began teaching and competing in BJJ. After making a splash on the westcoast BJJ scene Diego made his MMA debut in 2010 and hasn’t looked back since. Ferreira made his LFC debut two fights ago against UFC vet Carlo Prater, proving that he was much more then just another undefeated fighter. We will talk to Carlos Diego Ferreira about his journey to the states and what made him decide to move to the US, as well as his early days growing up in Brazil. We will also talk to him about his BJJ career and the decision to become a fighter. We will talk the title fight, along with his goals inside the sport. Follow Diego on Twitter @diegobjjtx
Our next guest has not only won Grapplers Quest 6 times, but started training Martial Arts at age 7. He later added boxing to his game at 14 and by the age of 19 was training in full MMA. He has fought inside the cage for King of the Cage, but as far as the UFC and now Reuben Duran will be making his Tachi Palace debut at TPF 17 against Evan Esguerra. Reuben is looking to get some wins picked up on the regional circuit and we will talk to him about not only that goal, but how difficult it was for him to find a fight after being released from the UFC. We will discuss with Reuben how the game is different inside and outside of the sports biggest promotion, his goals heading into the new year, and plenty more from his background, to some of his traditions inside of training camps, to who he roots for when it comes to the gridiron.

Our last guest is back on the show and ready to talk about his upcoming Title fight for Tachi Palace Fights. Jared Papazian is set to take on Russell Doane for the Tachi strap and we have a lot to talk to the Jackhammer about. We will discuss how this fight came to be offered to him as his last outing saw him step into the World Series of Fighting cage on short notice and walk away with the win. Jared is the type of fighter that regardless of the outcome always leaves it all in the cage. We will discuss with Jared his current contract situation, his goals heading into 2014, and of course how things are different outside the UFC. Jared has been around the world of Martial Arts since a very young age and we will talk to him about how his view of traditional Martial Arts have changed through his career in MMA, if he is a fan of any other sports, and tons more.
