On this episode, Kendrick & Matt discuss the weekend that was combat sports with events such as Fury vs Schwarz and Bellator 222. Then, for this week’s interviews, they are joined by three great guests – Tatiana Suarez, Neil Magny, & Rick Glaser.
First up, Tatiana Suarez, currently #2 in the UFC’s Strawweight rankings, returns to the show to discuss why her win over Nina Ansaroff was frustrating but also important to her experience as a fighter. She also discusses how her neck stingers will keep her sidelined for a few months, why she’s not upset at getting passed over for a title shot right now, and when she hopes to return to action inside the Octagon. Tatiana also dives into her fascination with crime tv shows.
Next, Neil Magny returns to the show to give an in-depth breakdown of his dealings with USADA since he was flagged for an illegal substance that cost him a fight with Vicente Luque in May. Magny is determined to get to the bottom of how this substance entered his body as he is an advocate for stringent testing and has always competed clean himself. Despite the frustration, Magny discusses why the whole situation also created a beautiful personal life moment.
Lastly, we speak to Rick Glaser, a boxing insider who has been around the sweet science for many years to give some knowledge on upcoming big fights such as Fury vs Wilder 2, Spence vs Porter, Joshua vs Ruiz 2. Glaser also has a lot of information on PBC and their potential upcoming sale that could see Ari Emanuel & Zuffa with a major boxing promotion in their possession.
