Verbal Submission MMA Podcast: Shannon Knapp, Josh Shockley, Georgi Karakhanyan, John Crouch

Hello everyone and welcome to yet another MMA podcast hosted on This time around, the site is bringing in The Verbal Submission, a podcast that’s been around for over three and a half years and is hosted by yours truly. What can you expect from this show?

  • Get to know new fighters – We search out top prospects and lesser known fighters to help give them a chance to showcase themselves
  • Compelling interviews – We have a wide variety of guests, from fighters to coaches and more and we don’t ask the same boring questions.
  • Entertaining MMA discussion – Myself and co-hosts Gerry Rodriguez and Ben Thapa rarely agree on anything so expect constant debate

In today’s episode, we speak with Invicta President Shannon Knapp to talk about her promotion’s new deal with UFC Fight Pass. Next up, we chat with debuting UFC fighter Josh Shockley, who’s slated to open up the UFC 174 preliminary card this weekend. The interviews continue with World Series of Fighting Featherweight Champion Georgi Karakhanyan, who will defend his title in 12 days against Rick Glenn. Last but not least, we spoke with MMA Lab head coach John Crouch, who had five fighters compete on this past weekend’s UFC Fight Night 42 card, including former lightweight champion Benson Henderson, who won the main event via fourth round submission. The interviews begin at the five minute mark in case you want to skip ahead. So sit back, relax, and enjoy!
