BJPENN.COM Radio is back in action, Penn Nation!
We kick things off with UFC bantamweight champ TJ Dillashaw. Last time the champ joined us, the super-fight against “Mighty Mouse” was all but finalized. Since then, the matchup has been shelved and TJ now faces former champion and rival Cody Garbrandt in a rematch at UFC 227 on August 4th. We’ll get TJ’s perspective on what went wrong with negotiations to fight Demetrious and if he feels that fight will eventually materialize. We’ll also preview the second bout with Cody, get TJ’s pick for the Lomachenko vs Linares fight this weekend, and much more.
Our second guest is the fan-favorite scrapper from Miami and good friend of the show, Jorge Masvidal. “Gamebred” returns to give us the full breakdown of yet another attempt to negotiate a fight against Neil Magny. We reported last week that Magny had declined the fight and subsequently the two welterweights went at it on Twitter. We’ll also get Jorge’s response to Michael Bisping’s denial of the incident between them in China, which you first heard Masvidal discuss here last month. Who Masvidal plans on facing when he returns this summer and more.
Closing out the show we are joined by Kyoji Horiguchi and his manager, Fumihiko Ishii. Following a sensational one-punch knockout against Ian McCall at RIZIN 10 over the weekend, Kyoji returns to recap the victory and give his thoughts on the stoppage. With the help of Fumi’s expert translation, we’ll also hear what Kyoji has planned for the rest of 2018, who he expects to face next, and the likelihood of what seems to be the inevitable rematch between himself and Demetrious Johnson.
Stay tuned every week for more of what you crave!
