BJPENN.COM Radio Ep. 107 // Eddie Alvarez | Alberto Del Rio | Eduard Folayang
Eddie Alvarez joins us for an in-depth conversation regarding his recent move to ONE Championship. “The Underground King” discusses his reasoning for parting ways with the UFC, his goal of capturing every major title in MMA, and how moving to a company with the values of ONE Championship is like a breath of fresh air. We’ll also get Eddie’s thoughts on potential matchups, the upcoming lightweight tournament, moving up in weight under the company’s hydration protocol, breaking into new markets, and all that means for expanding his already well-known brand.
Alberto Del Rio joins us for a lengthy and incredibly entertaining conversation. The former WWE champ transitioned to MMA promotion when he became the president of Combate Americas, helping to build the promotion one of the largest in North America. While Alberto enjoys his position within the company, the lust for competition has led to an announcement that he will be making a comeback to MMA in 2019. We’ll discuss the continued growth and success of Combate Americas, his suprisingly seasoned background in combat sports, the decision to return to fighting, and a whole lot more.
Eduard Folayang closes out this episode following his decision victory over Amir Khan to recapture the vacant lightweight title at ONE: Conquest of Champions. “The Landslide” will recap his performance in Manila, discuss his rise to superstardom with the Filipino fans, the next challenger to his title, and his thoughts on potentially fighting guys like Eddie Alvarez and Sage Northcutt. We'll also get Eduard's thoughts on a rematch with Martin Nguyen, the exciting new talent being acquired by ONE Championship, and what that means for the rest of the athletes on the roster.
All that and much more!
