BJPENN.COM Radio is back, Penn Nation!
We kick things off with head coach and founder of the American Kickboxing Academy, Javier Mendez. Grooming talented athletes into champions for over a decade, Javier is undoubtedly one of MMA’s most passionate coaches. We’ll talk shop with Mendez and get his take on several of his star pupils. You’ll hear an update on the future of Cain Velasquez, Luke Rockhold’s relationship with AKA, Daniel Cormier’s plans before retirement, and much more.
Then 12th ranked UFC light-heavyweight Dominick Reyes returns to discuss his recently announced matchup against Ovince St. Preux at UFC 229 on October 6th in Las Vegas. The undefeated Reyes had been campaigning for a fight with OSP following his win at UFC Chile back in May and now the Cobra Kai student has received his wish. We’ll get “The Devastator’s” take on the importance of this opportunity, competing on the biggest card of the year, and a friendly challenge he’s made towards Conor McGregor.
Closing out this episode we are joined by No. 3 ranked heavyweight Curtis “Razor” Blaydes. Following this weeks announcement that Curtis will be facing Francis Ngannou in a rematch on November 24th in Beijing, China, we’ll preview Blaydes’ chance at redemption against the former title challenger. Does Curtis believe that a win over Ngannou solidifies him as the next contender for the strap? Of course, but he’s not getting his hopes up based on the politics of matchmaking, i.e. Brock Lesnar.
All that and much more!
