Our Editor's Take

Full-combat contact sports fans are getting in the ring with The Bloody Elbow Presents podcast. This program is a daily recap of mixed martial arts (MMA) news. It comes from the folks behind the Bloody Elbow website.

Bloody Elbow Presents follows different storylines in this podcast. There are previews of UFC events and interpretations of fights and fight cards. The hosts talk about contracts and offers for the biggest names in ultimate fighting. John S. Nash often joins sports journalist Stephie Haynes. Nash is Bloody Elbow's chief financial columnist. Eugene S. Robinson also adds in his commentary. Robinson wrote the book Fight: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ass-Kicking But Were Afraid You'd Get Your Ass Kicked for Asking. This podcast has a similar sassy attitude to that book title.

The show has different themed episodes. The Bloody Elbow Presents podcast recaps top matches in Las Vegas and elsewhere. And "Care/Don't Care" podcast episodes preview UFC events. They share which fights "are hot" and "are not." It's the best way to settle in for the best fight nights and know which main cards to watch.

This podcast has segments that have the style of a radio show. And it sometimes has the mood of a live-watch party in its "sixth round" post-fight shows. Any episode is the way to get ready for the main event with this MMA podcast. Fans of Bloody Elbow Presents may also want to listen to two other related podcasts. Nash hosts the Hey Not the Face! podcast. And Robinson hosts the Eugene S. Robinson Show Stomper! podcast.

Is CSAC going under? (FREE episode)
This is FREE episode week!California’s athletic commission is experiencing what appears to be a slow death. Fight Opinion’s Zach Arnold wrote extensively about it on Bloody Elbow and the word he used was “atrophy”. That seems like a perfect word to describe what happens when higher taxes, mergers, attempts to force sanctioning for promotions like Power Slap and a spate of other factors create the perfect storm for collapse. Aside from a few Bellator shows and a Top Rank boxing card here and there, there’s not much action happening on California’s sunny grounds. We discuss it.We also dive into the WWE-UFC merger that left over 100 people without jobs thanks to a gutting of WWE’s office personnel roster. We looked back on the highs and lows of Noche UFC and we looked forward to a few fights on the UFC Vegas 79 card—weak as it may be. Here’s a look at the three fights we chose:Bloody Elbow is fighting for the sport, the fighters and the fans.
