May 8, 2013

The Sherdog Radio Network was live Wednesday with another edition of “Beatdown.” Joining TJ De Santis and Jeff Sherwood on the program was UFC featherweight contender Nik Lentz.

On May 18th Nik Lentz will step in to the UFC’s octagon for the third time as a featherweight. At a perfect 2-0 in the division the American Top Team product looks to further his win streak against Brazilian fighter Hacran Dias. This marks the Minnesotan’s second trip to Brazil to face a Brazilian in as many fights. Lentz chats about the bout and what he knows about his opponent. Lentz also talks about leaving The Academy in Minnesota, what life in Southern Florida has taught him, and how eating clean has changed his life. “The Carny” also shares how he earned his unusual nickname.

De Santis and Sherwood take listener calls, emails, and tweets. The pair also discuss the news that former UFC interim heavyweight champion Shane Carwin has retired from mixed martial arts competition.
