Kicking off the show this week is none other then Cub Swanson. Cub is coming off a unanimous Fight of the Night win against Jeremy Stephens. Pushing Cub’s win streak too 6. If anyone has proved they deserve a shot at the title it’s Cub. We will talk to Cub about his career, his current win streak, and of course what it would mean for him to get a shot at the champ and get his rematch. Cub has really come into his own as a fighter and a human being. We will get Cub’s thoughts on how he’s grown in the cage as well as in his day to day life. Get over to Twitter and follow Cub @CubSwanson
Nick “No Limit” Piedmont is our second guest and he’s ready to pick up his next win as he steps back in the cage for the WFF. Nick is set to take on Nicholas Rhoads in a rematch that has the pair sitting at 1-1 with each winning by Rear Naked Choke. We will talk with Nick about being back in the WFF cage and this being his 3rd fight this year. Nick is focused and motivated by the looks of how active he has been and taking a fight like his next one only proves that more. We will ask Nick what his main focus is this year, getting back into the big show, and balancing training at the level he has with family time and daddy responsibilities.

Wilson Reis is our first guest for hour number two and we have more then enough to talk to the UFC Flyweight about. Wilson was set to take on Tim Elliott August 23, at UFC Fight Night 49, but injury forced Tim out of the fight. Wilson is now set to take on UFC newcomer Joby Sanchez on just days notice. We will discuss with Wilson having his opponent change at the last minute, how life has changed since joining the UFC, how his BJJ stacks up against other fighters in the UFC, and what the rest of the year will hold for him. Get ready to get an inside look on how things change for a fighter when an opponent changes just days before a fight. Follow Wilson on Twitter @wilsonreis7
