Phoenix Carnevale joins Jim today in-studio to talk about Conor McGregor's return to the UFC in his fight against Donald Cerrone at Welterweight, the reported Ferguson-Khabib fight, and hypnotherapy.
First, they're joined by #10 Strawweight Cynthia Calvillo, who's fighting #9 Marina Rodriguez in Washington, DC this weekend. She talks about sacrificing holidays for weight cuts, training in Thailand, her departure from Team Alpha Male, and her American Eskimo dog (check out the Fight Pass show to see him!).
Then, Matt calls from a motorized cart in Disney World, where he and Jim have opposing thoughts on Baby Yoda and their burgeoning Cameo careers.
Then #10 Bantamweight Rob Font joins to talk about his matchup with Ricky Simon. The last time we saw Font was when he was with his buddy Calvin Kattar in Moscow - and guess who's in the background of this interview?
Font talks about traveling to Russia, his long layoff from fighting (through no fault of his own), John Lineker dropping out just days before their fight in June, and the state of the suddenly-loaded Bantamweight division.
