My Thoughts: The podcast starts off slow with Bryan talking about things he heard other people say and things he read in books. The two talk at great length about the Tim Kennedy and Yoel Romero UFC fight and the subsequent controversy, and MMA and boxing. Worth listening to once you get past the typical Bryan conversations where he’s spewing quotes.
