The Ultimate Fighter Season 13 Discussion, Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley Preview, Lyle Beerbohm Interview
On this episode of Full Contact Fighter Radio, host Jeff “Wombat” Meszaros and co-host James Kellaris run down “The Ultimate Fighter” and share their thoughts on the latest developments. Is Brock Lesnar a good MMA coach? Could the fighters in the house probably beat him up if they were his size? That last question likely tells you what we think. What’s the deal with his coaching? What about his curiously out-of-date catch phrases and bizarre terminology? What about the fight? We chat about that until we’re tired of it, which doesn’t take very long. Then it’s time to talk all about Strikeforce: Diaz vs. Daley. Who’s going to win the main event between Nick Diaz and Paul Daley? We’re not sure but we agree the loser will be really mad. What about the co-main event between Gilbert Melendez and Tatsuya Kawajiri? Will Melendez sprawl and brawl his way to a decision? Beerbohm vs. Aoki? Jardine vs. Mousasi? Who’s going to walk home the winner there? Will the Jardine fight give us some clue how the fighters in Strikeforce stack up against the UFC roster? Maybe, or maybe not. It’s all that, plus a ton of off-topic rambling, including a rousing bit where we compare Fedor Emelianenko to a fighting chicken. Then it’s time to bring in the fighter as Lyle Beerbohm stops in to chat about his fight againt Shinya Aoki this weekend. Tune in and hear what he thinks of the match, Aoki and the recent purchase of Strikeforce by the UFC. Plus, you will hear all about his fancy pants! Get on board people!
