He then talks about fighting at the UFC Apex again and why he will likely leave New York to find a new camp.
Tim Elliott joins the show to preview his UFC Vegas 39 fight against Matheus Nicolau. Tim talks about his fight in June falling through and why he turned down a few fights because he doesn’t have to fight. He also touches on UFC contracts and how they could be improved.
Charles Rosa comes on to preview his UFC Vegas 39 fight against Damon Jackson. Charles talks about his camp as he did some work at Sanford MMA for this fight and what a win over Jackson does for him. He also talks about him being a chef and cooking his own meals as well as talking about some other sports.
Jared Vanderaa closed out the program to preview his UFC Vegas 39 fight against Alexander Romanov. Jared talks about his training camp and how he didn’t get to train with the usual cast of characters. He then talks about the heavyweight division and where a win over Romanov puts him.
