MMAmania presents 'Darce Side Radio' podcast with guests Pat Barry, Lance Palmer and Shannon Knapp


Each week, show host Michael Stets shares his mixed martial arts (MMA) opinions on the latest hot topics, event previews (and reviews), key storylines and, of course, interview many of the best fighters and personalities in the sport today. On this week's show, Stets will be joined by UFC heavyweight Pat Barry, WSOF featherweight Lance Palmer and Invicta FC president Shannon Knapp.

With three fight cards on the horizon this weekend, Episode 16 of "Darce Side Radio" podast has you covered with a guest from each of the three promotions.

On this week's episode, Stets interviews UFC heavyweight Pat Barry about his match-up against Soa Palelei at UFC Fight Night 33, Lance Palmer about fighting for the inaugural WSOF featherweight title and Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp on Invicta FC 7 and Janet Martin's departure from the promotion.

The audio player is embedded below (just click play). All interviews are marked for the lazy who wish to jump ahead. Here is what you can expect to hear on Episode 16:

Pat Barry: The UFC heavyweight stops by to discuss his disdain for flying, his match-up against Soa Palelei at UFN 33, his lack of consistency, the majority of his fights ending inside of three rounds whether a win or loss, his Invicta strawweight girlfriend Rose Namajunas, his buddy "Cro Cop" fighting in GLORY and if he would pursue kickboxing again after his MMA career.

Lance Palmer: The newly-signed WSOF featherweight talks about his match-up against Giorgi Karakhanyan at WSOF 7 for the promotion's 145-pound title, how Duane Ludwig has helped improve his striking, his Team Alpha Male teammates upcoming fights on the UFC on FOX 9 card and if his Alma Matter, Ohio State, will make the BCS championship game.

Shannon Knapp: The Invicta FC president joins the show to preview Invicta FC 7, discuss the promotion's TV possibilities, the UFC's announcement of their 115-pound division, and matchmaker Janet Martin leaving the promotion.
