Then, Calvin Kattar joins the show to talk about his UFC Moncton fight against newcomer Chris Fishgold, owning his own fight promotion in New England, pre-fight rituals, and more. Finally, “No Time” Volkan Oezdemir calls in and discusses his UFC Moncton main event bout against Anthony Smith, learning lessons from his loss to DC, training with Henri Hooft at HK365, and believing he’ll earn a title shot with a win in New Brunswick. Meanwhile, actor and producer Frank Grillo hangs out in-studio with Jim and Matt to talk about his new Netflix five-part documentary “Fightworld”, and the guys make their UFC Moncton picks at the end of the show.
