Throwin Down With Andy: Episode 23

Merry Christmas Everyone!  I truly hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas.  I’ve been back from Diego Garcia for a little over two weeks now and I have been meaning to post another podcast, but life sometimes gets in the way.

Anyway, here’s episode 23.  In this episode, I’m flying solo once again.  I talk about the recent UFC on Fox, future guests on the show, as well as some past guests.

    good stuff…UFC is the holy grail, unlike Pride which was about the promoting the fighter UFC is about promoting the brand. Because of that they can under pay the talent because the talent isn’t as important as the brand. Where else can they go, Belator and OneFC make a great alternative but none of the fighters in these organizations wouldn’t bail for a chance to fight in the UFC. They have gotten behind a few fighters, McGregor, Rousey more so than anyone in recent memory and they pulled in big box office bucks but now both are talking retirement and there is no one with the charisma and talent combo to fill the void. Just like Waterson said, the pay was an embarrassment but she did it because it was her chance to fight in the UFC. Even her daughter told her that she wouldn’t be her favorite fighter unless she won in the UFC.
