Podcast: UFC 170's Pat Cummins, Cody Gibson
TJ De Santis and Jeff Sherwood were back on “Beatdown” today on the
Sherdog Radio Network. With UFC 170 coming up this Saturday night
De Santis and Jeff turned their attention to the card that features
a women’s bantamweight championship main event between Ronda
Rousey and Sara McMann.
Joining them on the broadcast was were UFC new comers Pat
Cummins and Cody
The top of the UFC 170 card is headlined by Ronda
Rousey and Sarah McMann. However, the co-main event has gained
a lot of steam over the last week. Originally slated to compliment
Rousey-McMann was an intriguing 205-pound affair with Rashad
Evans taking on Daniel
Cormier. Following an Evans knee injury it looked like Cormier
would be tabling his light-heavyweight debut for another day. That
was until Pat Cummins entered the fold. The 4-0 mixed martial arts
and former Penn State Nittany Lion made waves calling out “DC” and
sharing a story where he claims that he made the Olympian cry on
the wrestling mat. Cummins, a relatively Unknown
Fighter a week ago, has not only put his name on the map but
has angered his opponent in a big way. Cummins joins “Beatdown” to
talk about the last few days and how it is all leading up to his
octagon debut Saturday night in Las Vegas.
Cummins is not the only fighter making their UFC debut on short
notice at UFC 170. Bantamweight Cody Gibson
has answered the call on two weeks notice to face Aljamain
Sterling. “The Renegade” joined the program to discuss his road
to the UFC, how he is handling the rushed training camp, and what
he knows about the Serra-Longo trained Sterling.
Benavidez joined “Beatdown” as well Monday to talk about the
latest at Team Alpha Male as well as his April tilt with Tim Elliott
on Baltimore’s UFC 172 card.
TJ and Jeff also recap the UFC Fight Night 36 card which saw
Souza, and Erik Silva earn main card victories Saturday night.
De Santis and Jeff discuss possible middleweight title shots for
Machida and “Jacare” and if either of their performances hindered
them despite getting victories. The guys also take listener calls,
emails and tweets.
