Verbal Submission MMA Podcast: Doug Merlino

verbal_submissionWelcome to another top MMA podcast hosted on The Verbal Submission has been around for over five years now 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 Richard Perry are highly opinionated and rarely agree on anything, so expect constant debate

In today’s episode, we spoke with journalist and author Doug Merlino, who has a book coming out this week titled: “Beast: Blood, Struggle and Dreams at the Heart of Mixed Martial Arts” which follows four American Top Team fighters at different stages of their careers over a two-year period, Jeff Monson, Daniel Straus, Mirsad Bektik and Steven Mocco. ┬áThe interviews start at about the 5:00 mark, so sit back, relax, and enjoy!
