Today on the show we've got an unreleased episode from "the vault" . This one took a while to get edited as we were having some technical difficulties with a mixer at the time. We initially recorded this following John's win at Bellator ( Fedor vs Mitrione ) in San Jose a few months ago . The last weeks have been so busy it's actually taken quite a while to go back and get the audio sorted for this one.
We are one day removed from Memorial Day so I want to send a big " thank you " to all of the veterans past, present and future . You put your lives on the line and many do pay the ultimate price for our freedom back home so, again, thank you.
