On this week’s Majority Draw Radio, hosts Ryan McKinnnell and Danny Acosta recap Anderson Silva‘s communiques from Brazil, the weekend in Bellator and World Series of Fighting, and go on a tangent about the virtues of a Mark Hunt UFC heavyweight title shot.
Bellator bantamweight champ Joe Warren joins the show and provides some insight into what’s made him the self-proclaimed baddest man on the planet following becoming Bellator’s first two-division champion.
“Everyone thinks they can beat me,” Warren told Majority Draw Radio. “It’s kind of funny. Everyone wants to fight me. Pitbull wants to fight me. Half of Bellator thinks they can kill me. That’s good — keep thinking, when you get in the cage with the baddest man, it’s a different story.”
Former Strikeforce middleweight champ and UFC welterweight title challenger Jake Shields stops by to discuss his successful World Series of Fighting debut. Shields’ first-round rear-naked choke over Ryan Ford was his first finish since 2009. The American Jiu-Jitsu fighter didn’t buy Ford’s excuse of a broken arm.
“It’s possible, but I kind of think it’s B.S.,” Shields told Majority Draw Radio. “He was doing knuckle pushups at the weigh-ins and looked perfectly fine. You never do know. Even if he did, if you fight hurt, you take the responsibility. It’s something you should deal with quietly and privately.”
