MMA News, Strikeforce Preview and Rhadi Ferguson
On this episode of Full Contact Fighter Radio, host Jeff “Wombat” Meszaros and James Kellaris discuss the latest hot news in the world of mixed martial arts. First, the UFC has announced that Brock Lesnar and Junior Dos Santos will be the next coaches on The Ultimate Fighter and will then collide for the No. 1 contender slot and a shot at Cain Velasquez down the road. Will Dos Santos smash Lesnar? Can Lesnar learn enough striking to deal with the onslaught the Brazilian will bring to the cage? Tune in and hear what we think, then hang around as we roll onto the topic of the Strikeforce heavyweight tournament, where Alistair Overeem will take on Fabricio Werdum and Fedor Emelianenko will face Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva. Who will reign supreme? Can Overeem retain his title as he runs through the tournament? What about Josh Barnett vs. Brett Rogers? Or Andrei Arlovski vs. Sergei Kharitonov? Will any of these fights look like a scene from “Best of the Best” part 2 (or 3?). We’re not sure but we’re ready to discuss it with a level of strict sobriety that borders on tedious. Then, hang on as we bring in Dr. Rhadi Ferguson, who just won his third professional mixed martial arts fight in Strikeforce. What’s it like talking to a man who went to the Olympics twice and graduated with a 4.0 GPA in mechanical engineering? Tune in and hear for yourself. Wow. It’s another show worth telling your neighbors about even if they’re still mad that your cat craps in their rose garden.
