The latest episode of BJPENN.COM Radio has arrived, Penn Nation!
Our first guest, coming off a devastating third round finish of Alistair Overeem at UFC 225 that likely cemented him as the rightful No. 1 contender to the heavyweight title, Curtis “Razor” Blaydes. We’ll recap the victory in his hometown of Chicago and discuss the heel-hook attempts by Overeem that injured the knee of Blaydes. What’s next for Curtis? He believes it’s the winner of Daniel Cormier and Stipe Miocic, but he’s also not against taking another fight before reaching the belt.
UFC Light-Heavyweight prospect and Jackson-Wink product Devin Clark joins us to campaign for a fight in Lincoln Nebraska this August against Anthony Smith. The “Brown Bear” has called out Anthony on social media, but has yet to get a response. We’ll discuss the possible matchup, why Devin chose Anthony Smith specifically, who else he has in mind if Smith declines, and more.
Former Bellator lightweight champion and UFC veteran, “Ill” Will Brooks, joins us to preview his Professional Fighters League debut against Luis Firmino in Chicago this Thursday. We’ll hear why Brooks chose to sign with the PFL, his thoughts on the revolutionary format of the promotion, his reignited passion for competition, and why he’s confident that with one win at a time, he’ll be the first PFL lightweight tournament champion.
Closing out this episode, UFC veteran and TUF Alumni, Ramsey Nijem. Ramsey is also set to make his Professional Fighters League debut in Chicago this week against Brian Foster. We’ll get Ramsey’s thoughts on Foster as an opponent, the potential for the PFL to change the game of MMA, and why he’s so excited to be a part of something that will truly benefit the athletes. We’ll also get the details on Nijem’s humanitarian work with refugees, and why he chose to use the platform of MMA to help those who hold a special place in his heart.
