This week on the show Maine and Emil talk about tons of matchups that have been announced since the holiday break has concluded, as well as an Interview with Jay Regalbuto.
The entire news section of the show is matchup heavy. We talk about Keenan Cornelius Vs. Roberto Jimenez booked for Who is #1 on FloGrappling. The announcement of the Queen of Mats for AJP, Nick Rodriguez Vs. Victor Hugo, Edwin Najmi Vs. Gilbert Burns. We also talk about some crazy registrations for the IBJJF 2020 European Championships, with Mikey Musumeci registering for Roosterweight and Bruno Malfacine also registering for the same division. This years Euros looks to be a huge one.
In the preview segment of the show we talk about the welterweight matchup between Benson Henderson and Marcio Andre, and what we think Marcio Andre’s pathway to victory is. In the Co-Main event we talk about the Flyweight Black Belt Gi Title bout between Karen Antunes and Talita Alencar, and Alencars aggressive style early, in contrast with Karens speed. We also run through huge amount of black belts also featured on the event.
In the next segment Maine sits down with Jay Regalbuto, one of the best BJJ commentators in the business and Nicky Rod’s Coach for his 2019 ADCC to talk about BJJ commentary and his plans for 2020. We talk about Jay’s preparation for BJJ events, and how he goes about researching the athletes he is going to commentate on. He also talks about his time with Nicky Rod and how they worked together to get Nick in a place to make his historic 2019 ADCC run, as well as some upcoming matchups that he is featured on.
In the outro of the show Maine and Emil talk about travel and BJJ travel, and about how great it is to live so close to so many major airports.
