BJPENN.COM Radio returns tonight at 8PM ET/5PM PT with more great guests for your MMA fix!
8:15PM ET- Antonio McKee – @elnegro01 kicks things off to recap his son AJ’s victory at Bellator 166 and take a dive into the complexities of fighter associations. Antonio is a longtime veteran of MMA and has been routinely vocal about the imperative need for athletes to band together and bargain collectively with promotions, primarily the UFC. McKee expressed this concern long before it was a mainstream issue and we’ll hear some very intriguing observations about how this “MMAAA” thing should unfold.
8:40PM ET- Gerald Harris – @ghurricane joins us following his devastating slam knockout at Legacy FC 63. Gerald was once a very hopeful prospect in the UFC’s MW division. But after a single loss, Harris was cut and struggled to find fights, leading to his eventual retirement. After hearing news that the next season of TUF would be a season of ‘comeback’ fighters, Gerald immediately came out of retirement. Hungry and more motivated than ever, the stand up comedian/fighter/school teacher is guaranteed to be fired up!
9PM ET- Jorge Masvidal – @gamebredfighter returns to recap his dominant and yet controversial victory over Jake Ellenberger at the TUF 24 Finale. Masvidal had very effective striking throughout the fight and hurt Ellenberger on more than one occasion prior to the strange ‘toe-in-cage’ fiasco. We’ll hear his thoughts on the fight, wether he believes he’ll get the winner of Brown/Cerrone next, and much more!
9:30PM ET- Abel Trujillo – @killatrujillo closes out the show to discuss the recently announced matchup against Evan Dunham at UFC Fight Night 104 in Houston. “Killa” suffered some injury setbacks and has been out of action since May, so it’s safe to assume the Blackzilian is eager to step back in the cage and knock heads off “in this mug.” We’ll get his take on Dunham, the lightweight division, and more!
