The aforementioned upset came from blue collar Zach Freeman, who balances a full-time day job with an MMA career. The “Altar Boy” used slick boxing followed by some lethal jiu jitsu to take out highly touted prospect Aaron Pico in a mere 24 seconds.

Freeman joined the podcast to talk about his current state of euphoria.

Also this week, the guys speak to legendary NFL running back-turned-MMA fighter Herschel Walker. The 1982 Heisman Trophy winner talked about his new-found love for mixed-martial arts and who he’s got in the McGregor-Mayweather super-fight.
