Friday Night's Big Event In Albany Features Wantagh's Gian Villante; Reporter Megan Olivi Talks UFC 206, And More

NEW YORK (WFAN) — We here at are proud to debut the first of what will be many episodes of the new “Outside The Cage” podcast.

Hosts Pete Hoffman and Isaac Feldman kick things off by previewing UFC’s Fight Night 102, which will be held Friday night in Albany. It will mark the second event in the Empire State in the last month, joining UFC 205, which took place back in early November at Madison Square Garden.

Gian Villante, who hails from Wantagh, New York, will be facing newly announced opponent Saparbek Safarov on Friday night. Originally scheduled to fight at MSG, injuries knocked the hometown boy off the biggest card in UFC history. Now, Villante is facing a dangerous foe on short notice.

Also joining the guys in this episode is UFC host and reporter Megan Olivi, who shared a behind-the-scenes perspective in advance of UFC 206, which will be held Saturday night up at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Olivi talks about interviewing the face of UFC, Conor McGregor, Ronda Rousey’s expected return at UFC 207, and working in such a testosterone-driven business.
