Enjoy the discussion of the Oscars, the UFC and Team Canada qualifying for the Soccer World Cup!
We welcomed our old friend Stephane Cappellini to conduct a podcast with us to breakdown the UFC fight card from Columbus Ohio and preview UFC 273.
We missed our usual Monday evening guest Jason Cameron who is at home recovering from an accident. We extend our best wishes and words of encouragement for a speedy recovery! Stephane did a great job in relief though and this was a fun podcast that you will enjoy!
This episode was supposed to focus on MMA and the latest fight cards but started with a couple of very topical subjects. The Oscars that took place this past weekend were upstaged by Will Smith taking offense to a joke about his wife(Jada Pinkett Smith) and delivered by comedian Chris Rock. He marched up and got on stage and slapped Rock across the face. When he returned to his seat he screamed twice at Rock to keep his wife's name out of his mouth and used some expletives to emphasize his point. It was all people could talk about all day today! Most observers thought it was a staged comedic bit until Smith(who eventually won best actor) repeated his warning so loudly and with such dramatic emphasis. Let us know your thoughts on the incident.
You will enjoy the lively discussion about the great feat of the Canadian Men's Soccer team winning their qualifying group and advancing to the World Cup for the first time in 36 years! This became another unifying moment in the country's history as the run that this team was on edged closer to solidifying the most coveted berth. In this proud nations sporting history this will be remembered as an incredibly defining moment of patriotism and nationalism. Congratulations to the entire team and surrounding staff that brought millions of fans from coast to coast together!
On the heels of the UFC in the UK this fight card had a lot to live up to and the live crowd in Columbus, Ohio did their best to voice their support or displeasure at every opportunity. The main and co-main events were overshadowed on the evening by an all out war between a home town favorite in Matt( The Immortal) Brown and Bryan(Bam Bam) Barbarena. Our host Darren Campbell said it was one of his top ten fights of all time in terms of a toe to toe brawl. The last two fights really showcased the contenders from the pretenders and definitely moved the winners into the upper echelon of their respective weight classes. Even though Curtis( Razor ) Blaydes has lost twice to the current champ Francis(The Predator) Ngannou and once to Derrick (The Black Beast) Lewis he has entered into the conversation of the title picture in the Heavyweight division. With Ngannou recovering from knee surgery the promotion will undoubtably hold an interim champion fight and Blaydes will probably be in the contest. His opponent for now remains a mystery but there will be a lot of speculation and the boys give out the names of the possible combatants. This was another fun card that was entertaining to watch and also a pleasure to breakdown with Stephane(Great Capo) Cappellini.
