Episode #49: Welterweight Gold
Jon Fitch says he is “too good anywhere” for most welterweights in MMA. We tend to agree. This weekend he will collide with Joao “The Brazilian Samurai” Zeferino for the vacant World Series of Fighting welterweight (170 pounds) championship at stake. As we anticipate the weigh-ins tomorrow and the actual fight, we talk a bit about being the first MMA fighter to be fully paid in bitcoin. Fitch loves cryptocurrency and he thinks it is bringing about a new form of commerce. In addition we talk about Zuffa, the legalization of MMA in New York, Joe Rogan, bringing the Muhammad Ali Act into MMA, and more! Tony Swish and Cello are your guys on the 1’s & 2’s while the normal gang sit in for this special mid-week roundtable. Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit’s Tiiiiiiiiiiiiiime!!!
