Podcast: Francisco Rivera, T.J. Dillashaw
Wednesday brought another edition of “Beatdown” to the Sherdog
Radio Network. Joining hosts TJ De Santis and Jeff Sherwood were
UFC fighters Francisco
Rivera and T.J.
158 just a week and a half away, TJ and Jeff caught up with
Team Alpha Male product Dillashaw. The Sacramento-based fighter
joined the program to chat about his featherweight bout against
Tamura in Montreal, his new coach Duane Ludwig,
and how he feels he has gotten better without competing.
If anyone thinks bantamweights don’t have knockout power, show them
a fight that features Francisco Rivera. The CSW product joined De
Santis and Sherwood to talk about his contract extension with the
UFC. The WEC vet shares his story about nearly retiring from the
sport to work full time as a city employee of Buena Park, what made
him return to mixed martial arts, and why he feels being cut from
the UFC at one point was a good thing.
The guys take listener calls, emails, and tweets. They also take a
look at if transgender MMA fighters should be allowed to fight
fighters of their new sex. One transgendered listener even calls in
and shares her thoughts on the topic.
