  1. Rener almost went through an entire appearance without trying to sell something.

  2. Before starting this. Im afraid Rener is gonna not stop talking making this dull and boring.

  3. ?The trainer is way too much in the conversation he's in like every interview Brian Ortega does and is So aggressive in the conversations butts in way too much! let the man get his time fall back a little Gracie!

  4. Seems Rener is piggy backing Brian's win.. He simply talks too much and IMO it's Brian's interview not his.

  5. I accidentally clicked on this, schaub is unbearable with rogans scrotum

  6. Is it me or does Brian's coach try to take too much credit for what Brian's done? I get he coaches him and helped him and what not. But he like speaks up for Ortega and acts like he is about to fight Holloway himself… I dunno I'm happy for Brian and certainly not hating. But he needs to simmer down a little bit and let the world know Ortega and let the man speak!

  7. Do the people invited to the podcasts get paid for being there? Not specifically in this podcast but in general. Im just curious, thanks.

  8. I was starting to think Brendan was going to go all PC from the gig on E but nope! and he even calls Joe Rogan out that he "better not go fucking PC on me" a few days ago. Loved this guy since Joe retired him.. or when he hooked up with Ronda. Legit laugh out loud moments with him. Wonder how his stand up is going but im sure he'll be in movies real soon

  9. The Gracie's are amazing people. You can tell how much Rener cares about Brian and I can see the dynamic here. There is a big history between these two. You can tell Brian has been in a bad place before and Rener brought him in and focused him on training. You can see it clear as day! And it makes me so happy there are people who have helped people like Brian change their lives.

  10. The number one featherweight is the actual champion you douchebag.

  11. B Shaub is weird as fuck. Not only does he cross his legs like a world class hooker, he rubs himself while doing it….what a fucking clown.

  12. How is this counting as this weeks episode, when this was already the Monday podcast? So you just uploaded it twice called it the new ep for the week?

  13. Is it not possible that he just happened to get lucky and land that elbow, well not exactly lucky but- I think Frankie wasn't thinking bout getting caught while working the inside pocket because Ortega wasn't known for his striking and has such long arms- I think Frankie felt safe and wasn't watching for it. If the next guy is watching for it, paying some respect to Brian's striking game- what will happen?

  14. A bunch of salty jealous bitches in these comments. No wonder Brendan never reads this garbage! Not like he has time anyway.
