BJPENN Radio returns at 8PM ET/5PM PT with another stacked lineup!
8:15PM ET- Kicking off the show we are joined by former title challenger and possible future UFC champion, “The Bullet” Valentina Schevchenko. Shortly after announcing she would be dropping down to compete in the newly formed women’s flyweight division, Valentina challenged Paige Van Zant to a title-elimination fight. However, Paige declined the matchup and we’re going to discuss the situation with Schevchenko in depth.
8:40PM ET- Next up, the increasingly infamous heel of MMA, Colby Covington. Following the reports that Tyron Woodley is in negotiations to fight Nate Diaz at UFC 219, you can bet that “Chaos” has plenty say about it. We’ll get his take on that news, the situation with Conor McGregor, and the harsh words Colby has had for Jon Jones recently. All that and much more with “Triple C.”
9:00PM ET- The queen of the 135 pound women’s division in the UFC, Amanda Nunes. While it was initially reported that “The Lioness” would be defending her title against Raquel Pennington next, Raquel officially withdrew from the bout days later citing a broken leg. We’ll discuss what’s next for Amanda, if she’s willing to help save the UFC 219 card, and what her reaction was to making the Forbes “30 Under 30” list.
9:30PM ET- Closing out the show, Long Island’s own “Raging” Al Iaquinta. After being forced to withdraw from a fight with Paul Felder shortly after it was announced, Al’s MMA career grows even more uncertain. We’ll hear Iaquinta stands in regards to MMA, what he expects in a prolonged contract negotiation with the UFC, and how business is going for him in the real estate world.
