My Thoughts: Surprisingly, the guys stick mostly to fight talk with a few detours to talk about animals and movies. Bryan leaves around half way through. Joey Diaz calls in to the podcast. The guys watch the Fedor vs. Fabio Maldonaldo fight. A little bit of talk about politics, conspiracy theories, and cars to end off the epic five-hour podcast. Not as excruciating to get through as I anticipated.
