Our first guest is no stranger to the show and no stranger to the spotlight, Daniel Straus is back on the show and that means he’s set to be back in the Bellator Cage. Daniel is set to take on Justin Wilcox in the main event at Bellator 127, October 3rd. We will talk to Daniel about the match up and being the main event, how he stacks up against Wilcox, and how the match up came to be. We will also talk to Daniel about his time off since his last fight. Daniel has got to be hungry to get back his belt and you know we will talk with him, on how life has changed since his last fight, how camp has changed, and the journey to get back the Bellator Belt. If time permits we will get Daniels thoughts on the new boss, the loss of the tournament format, and a few other topics with the new direction of Bellator.

Our second guest is fast on his feet, you don’t get the nickname “The Gazelle” any other way. Walel Watson is back on the show and set to step back into the Titan FC cage. It’s been a minute since we’ve spoke with Walel and lots has changed since the last time we spoke. Walel has added a stamp to his passport with his fight in Finland, added another win by Submission, and signed with Titan FC to take on Anthony Gutierrez. We will talk to Walel about the fight, his goals for the rest of the year, and being with Titan FC. We will also talk to Walel about the new affiliation with 10th Planet, being surrounded by beasts, and what he would like see happen with the school and more.

Hour two is kicked off by “Baby” Joe Taimanglo as he gets ready to face Michael Parker, September 26, at Bellator 126. Baby Joe is on a two fight losing streak, but the last time that happened he went on a ten fight win streak… So that could spell a bad 2 to 3 years for the division. We will talk to Joe about the motivation that he has going in to this fight and if he feels like his back is against a wall. We will talk to Joe about his current match up and his goals for the rest of the year inside and outside the cage. We will discuss with him how this camp went and if he has changed anything up heading into the match up with Michael. Don’t miss this interview and don’t miss Baby Joe when he steps into the Bellator cage, but before that follow Joe on Twitter @BabyJuggernaut

Christmas comes early this year for fight fans as Hapa is set to take on Brendan Schaub on December 6, at UFC 181.
