New Episodes Weekly
On Friday March 6th, Ignotainment Media Network will launch the ‘Let’s Get It On’ MMA podcast, hosted by two of the most recognizable voices in the sport. The inaugural episode will be available for download at 12:00 p.m. EST/9:00 a.m. PST at Ignotainment.com, as well as iTunes and the Stitcher app for Android.
With legendary MMA referee ‘Big’ John McCarthy and Bellator MMA announcer Sean Wheelock at the helm, Let’s Get It On will explore the various worlds of combat sports, from Muay Thai to MMA, boxing to grappling, and all martial arts in between. Basing the show off their unique standpoint as referee and commentator, McCarthy and Wheelock will go beyond the speculation and gossip that fuel most MMA websites and podcasts.
Let’s Get It On will offer a thorough and qualified education into how combat sports operates, both in the cage and behind-the-scenes, and why certain decisions are made, perhaps less obviously than from the public’s limited, outside view.
In the first episode of Let’s Get It On, McCarthy and Wheelock discuss three matches from the weekend as case studies for certain officiating and regulatory procedures. ‘Rowdy’ Ronda Rousey and Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino’s latest respective wins reopened the door to a potential match between them. McCarthy, who refereed Rousey’s fight, gives his opinion about the political and weight class issues currently preventing Rousey-Cyborg from becoming a reality. He also speaks on the three eye pokes that occurred between Norifumi ‘Kid’ Yamamoto and Roman Salazar, and how they affected his decision to rule the match as a no contest.
Finally, McCarthy and Wheelock discuss the light heavyweight title change at Bellator 134, shedding light on how judges awarded Liam McGeary a unanimous decision win over Emanual Newton, despite the Englishman’s significant time on the ground in bottom position.
Fans can expect this kind of analysis and informative explanation from McCarthy and Wheelock each week, on Let’s Get It On.
