When I started this show with Rich the day after UFC 100, I never had any intention of staying. The show was really made to be Rich's and I was going to co-host until it was off and running. Things change of course and just under 2 years later, here I am continuing the great show because of the listeners that enjoy the show.
One thing I have always wanted was to grow the show and create a larger audience. Going under the MMA Weekly banner will allow us to do this. I can't tell you how excited this makes me. For as long as I have been a fan of this sport, I have been visiting MMAWeekly.com. To ever think that I would one day be a part of such a long running and successful website never entered my mind.
Joining the MMA Weekly family is an honor. I can't think of a more respected website for MMA news that I could join and make an immediate impact. I'm excited and energized to make a splash in MMA and this is the perfect platform.
The deal is done. All you have to do as a fan of the show is to sit back and relax. This will open up doors for us that have been almost impossible to open previously. We will now have access to more fighters, prizes and content with this partnership. It also ensures that I won't be going anywhere any time soon.
As I said on the show, you can continue to listen to the show the way you always have (on iTunes, Zune, download from the website or whatever) or you can switch to the MMAWeekly feed and get a higher quality version which will show up on the MMAWeekly iTunes feed. You can also download that version of the show from the Radio page as well.
For the immediate future, it's business as usual. We'll still have a live show that you can call into or chat with us during and we'll still try to inform and entertain. I hope you are all as excited as I am.
The first show that will be on MMA Weekly will be April 17, 2011. I hope you all join in on the celebration.
