UFC Unfiltered UF182: The Great Mark Henry Talks Frankie Edgar, Conor McGregor, and More
One of MMA’s best coaches, Mark Henry, calls in and talks to Jim and Matt about Frankie Edgar’s loss to Brian Ortega and bouncing back to fight Cub Swanson in Atlantic City, Conor McGregor, Khabib Nurmagomedov, how he comes up with his codes for striking combinations, Ali Abdelaziz, Zabit Magomedsharipov, Renzo Gracie stories, and a lot more. Plus, the guys discuss Dana White saying DJ vs. TJ is now not happening, Josh Barnett getting cleared by USADA, Sean O’Malley’s foot surgery, and a bunch of recently announced fights.
Olympian, strongman, powerlifter and former WWE wrestler Mark Henry joined me on Thursday to preview the Arnold Classic 2018 Strongman competition. This year’s battle won’t feature Eddie Hall, but Thor Bjornsson (‘The Mountain’ from Game of Thrones) and Brian Shaw are back and likely to be the top two contenders. We also discuss the use of the Rogue elephant bar for the deadlift competition, the future of strength sports and more.
