Frank Mir comes to talk about his boxing fight on the Askren-Paul undercard. The interview was recorded when he was supposed to face Antonio Tarver but still a ton of good information about the move to boxing and how the fight offer came together. Frank then touches on his BKFC deal and when he may fight for them. He concludes the chat by discussing his daughter’s MMA career and him passing the torch to her.
Drakkar Klose joins the show to preview his UFC Vegas 24 fight against Jeremy Stephens.

The lightweight contender also talks about the lightweight division and him thinking about dropping down to featherweight.
Chase Sherman closes out the program to preview his UFC Vegas 24 scrap against Andrei Arlovski. Chase talks about getting a more well-known name on short notice but all the stress that was involved after one of his cornermen tested positive for COVID-19. Sherman also talks about his recent USADA suspension and how he expects to finish Arlovski to make a run up the heavyweight ranks.
