  1. Love podcast Karyn. Keep it up. I have a question. Why aren't you or the ufc talking enough about the return of Chan sung jung The KZ? Screw the superbowl. KZ is one the most exciting fighters of all time. So pumped and excited for his return.

  2. Am I glad KB is going to be back on Fox. I was worried that she was replaced by that Grisham guy or punished because she was covering Bellator.

    Also to settle things between Valentina and Karyn there must be a dance off. Valentina stated in another interview she danced to Reggaeton previously and I'm sure KB has too. My money is on KB.

  3. In all her Muay Thai fights she would dance on her way to the ring to the same music she played at Denver. Bullet said it was her tradition, that she was known for it. It does look a little better as she is walking than standing in one place. There are plenty of videos on youtube with her dancing. She does gypsy dance, folk dance's etc. she said her mom put her and her sister in dancing school at the same time she started her martial art training when she was five years old. Alan commenting on something he knows nothing of sounds a bit sour to me.

  4. The Bullet x Pena fight was turning out as I predicted, except for the ending. I had said I thought this fight was going to resemble Joanna x Claudia 2. Where Pena like Claudia was going to start the fight full throttle for the first two rounds and then Bullet like Joanna would pick her apart the last three rounds. Pena's gas tank was emptying and had she not been submitted I feel like that's how this fight would have happened. It appeared to me as if Bullet employed the MMA version of Ali's "Rope a Dope" by clinching with Pena. Bullet using the cage just as Ali used the ropes and let Pena use up tons of energy while trying to score a take-down. Michelle Waterson commented after the fight that Pena's arms were tired from the clinching and prevented her from being able to put up much of a defense against Bullet's armbar. I'm not sure if this was one of the actual game plans or if Bullet reacted on her own but it sure worked out pretty good.
