MMA legend and pioneer, Frank Shamrock stops by the show to discuss his new show “Gym Rescue” and the shoving incident that took place with an angry gym owner. The original UFC Light Heavyweight Champion chats about his days in Japan, fighting Bas Rutten, leaving the UFC, his relationship with Dana White, being inducted into the Hall of Fame, who he’d rematch, the Diaz/Silva fight, Jones vs Cormier, and more!Pat Cummins is quickly becoming a mainstay at Submission Radio, and stops by again to talk about his recent win over Kyle Kingsbury at UFC on Fox 12, as well as what’s in store for Durkin’s UFC future. Being one of the fastest rising Light Heavyweights in the UFC, Pat explains how he felt knowing that he had a key role in the retirement of Kyle, and why it’s not such a bad thing. Cummins shares his plans for UFC title gold and how soon he thinks it will take to him to accomplish the feat, as well as who he wants to take the title from (hint: it’s not Jon Jones). Pat also weighs in on the Jones vs Cormier matchup and who he thinks will win, his own Brazilian Jiu Jitsu game, improvements to make from the Kingsbury fight, his favourite fighter to watch, the secret behind a good takedown, his bromance with Dennis Bermudez, and what really happened to his missing tooth!
Manager of Nate Diaz, King Mo and Royce Gracie, Mike Kogan returns to Submission Radio to talk about the latest developments in Nate Diaz’s comeback to the UFC….or lack thereof. Kogan explains how Nate has expressed interests in such fights as the winner of Donald Cerrone and Jim Miller, and as recently as a few weeks ago offered to step up against Josh Thompson at UFC on Fox 12 when Michael Johnson withdrew due to injury. Kogan also talks about fickle MMA fans, not wanting to take the Diaz situation to social media, the Nate/Diego Sanchez fight, the Nick Diaz/Anderson Silva fight, Scott Coker taking over for Bjorn Rebney, and gives updates on Paul Daley’s VISA and King Mo’s relationship with Bellator ahead of his September 5th fight against Tom DeBlass at Bellator 123.
