NEW YORK (WFAN) — In this week’s edition of the “Outside the Cage” podcast, hosts Pete Hoffman and Ike Feldman recap the chaos from Saturday night’s epic UFC 218 with light-heavyweight prospect Dominick Reyes (at the 19:12 mark) and move forward to this weekend’s card in Fresno, California, with another up and comer in Alex Perez (37:00).

It’s been a great year for Reyes, who’s not only undefeated in 2018 but has two dominant finishes. The calm California native spoke about his journey so far as a young fighter, playing collegiate football at Stony Brook and the unveiling of his wicked ground game.
