In a special roundtable edition of Submission Radio, UFC Hall of famer Frank Trigg and MMA Fighting’s Davis St. Martin join Kacper and Denis to break down WSOF 23, Bellator & Glory: Dynamite 1, Fedor Emelianenko signing with Japan’s newest MMA promotion, and why Nick Diaz’s suspension is absolutely ridiculous.
– Popular journalist and the man behind MMA Fighting’s morning report, David St. Martin makes his first appearance on Submission Radio to help break down World Series of Fighting 23: Gaethje vs Palomino 2. David joins Kacper and Denis to talk about such fights as Justin Gaethje vs Luis Palomino and how it stacked up against the first one, David Branch vs Teddy Holder, Timur Valiev vs Tito Jones, Phoenix Jones vs Roberto Yong, Brian Foster vs LaRue Burley, and the controversial finish to Vagab Vagabov vs Brian Grinnell and what the consequence should be.
– MMA legend and UFC Hall of Famer Frank Trigg returns to Submission Radio to help break down Bellator & Glory: Dynamite 1 and what to make of Scott Coker’s MMA/Kickboxing spectacle.
Frank talks about the production value, what worked and what didn’t work, how it compared to the old school Pride FC shows, and whether or not the show could’ve had more of a ‘Scott Coker’ twist to it. With his vast knowledge of the sport, Trigg also weighs in on such fights as King Mo vs Linton Vassell, Phil Davis’ fights against Emanuel Newton and Francis Carmont, Josh Thompson vs Mike Bronzoulis, and Tito Ortiz vs Liam McGeary. Aside from his analysis of the fights themselves, Trigg gives insight into the personalities and mindset of certain fighters, including Tito Ortiz, Liam McGeary, and Emanuel Newton.
To round off the show, Kacper and Denis get Frank’s thoughts and also weigh in on Fedor Emelianenko signing with Nobuyuki Sakakibara’s new Japanese promotion, if Japanese MMA has enough life in it to still be successful, possible opponents for Fedor to fight, if Fedor will eventually end up in the UFC, as well as Nick Diaz’s controversial five year suspension.
