BJPENN.com Radio is brought to you tonight by the Gi Exchange and kicks off tonight at 7 p.m. with another star studded lineup. Get over and check out the Gi Exchange at www.TheGiExchange.com and also their upcoming BJJ Tournaments For Us, By Us!!!
Kicking off the show we have MFC Champion Anthony Birchak (11-1 MMA) who will be making his UFC debut against Joe Soto at UFC 177 next weekend. Anthony has been on a tear lately, riding a 5 fight win streak, that consists of 4 finishes, he looks to carry that momentum into his UFC debut.
Next up we have Alan Jouban (10-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC), who is fresh off his UFC debut win over Seth Baczynski earlier this month. Jouban finished the veteran Baczynski in the first round of their fight, showing much promise for the Black House fighter. The win extended Jouban’s win streak to 3, with 2 of the wins coming by way of KO.
Next on our lineup is TUF Lesnar vs. Dos Santos winner, Tony ‘El Cucuy’ Ferguson (15-3 MMA, 5-1 UFC). Ferguson’s last outing in the octagon led to a one-punch knockout against Katsunori Kikuno back at UFC 173 in May. He looks to carry that momentum into his bout against Danny Castillo at UFC 177 this upcoming weekend.
Last but certainly not least, is arguably the best striking coach around, Duane ‘Bang’ Ludwig himself. While Ludwig is retired from competition, his star pupil TJ Dillashaw will be stepping into the Octagon this weekend at UFC 177 to defend his bantamweight title against Renan Barao in a highly anticipated rematch. Dillashaw defeated Barao back in May in spectacular fashion to dethrone Barao. Also coming up for Duane Ludwig is Chad Mendes’ rematch against Jose Aldo at UFC 179 on October 25th.
