Rizin Fighting Federation is seeking the assistance of the Association of Boxing Commission and Combative Sports and Jason Floyd lets you know the type of assistance they are looking for on this week’s edition of The MMA Report Podcast.
Jason also tells you something else the Association of Boxing Commission and Combative Sports has cooking in terms of the regulatory side of the sport and tells you about the civil lawsuit that heavyweight Mark Hunt has filed against the UFC, Dana White and Brock Lesnar.
Also on this week’s podcast, Jason has interviews with fighters who will be competing at Bellator 170, Shamrock FC 282, New England Fights 27 and Apex Fights 13. Bellator 170 fighters Georgi Karakhanyan and Emmanuel Sanchez will preview their fight against each other and Karakhanyan will let you know if he plans to remain at featherweight.
After those interviews, Jason talks with Shamrock FC 282’s Kelvin Tiller and Garrett Gross. Tiller will be headlining the event as he faces Kevin Sears in a heavyweight bout and Gross will be facing Deron Carlis in a lightweight bout. Tiller will discuss his decision to move up to the heavyweight division and Gross talks about some of the changes he has made in preparations for this fight.
Then you will hear from undefeated featherweight Aaron Lacey. He is scheduled to return next month at New England Fights 27 against Chris Jacobs and he talks about his quick rise up the New England Fights featherweight rankings. And finally, he will be joined by amateur heavyweight Billy Swanson to discuss his title fight against Justin Goodin at Apex Fights 13 and find out if he is considering a move to the professional ranks.
