Well, we’re past the first month of audio interviews on Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Daily and so far, so good!
Both interviews are available to stream or download free right now — more than an hour of audio goodness for you. How benevolent am I?
Here’s what co-host and site co-founder Bryan Alvarez and I have done so far:
Bryan and I talked to the final WEC Lightweight Champion as he prepares to take on Clay Guida in June in his UFC debut. The man that threw the kick heard ’round the world in December was great to talk to and the 30-minute interview covered everything from taekwondo to the decision to fight Guida instead of wait for the UFC Lightweight Champion and more.
We got a good 15 minutes in before Bobby’s phone cut out and we never heard from him (seen above) again. Before that point, we talked his main event for Titan Fighting Championships, his contract status with Strikeforce and what he thinks about the Zuffa purchase, his view on wrestling and more. After the interview, Bryan and I previewed UFC Fight Night in Seattle and discussed the Jon Jones’ victory for the UFC Light Heavyweight title.
Next interview is set for Wednesday, April 6th and I’m working on a current champion for a major organization. A former champion is all but booked for Wednesday, April 20th and no, it’s not Nick Diaz.
