Never underestimate the power of the Darce side!

The weekly show is back for its second installment, stacked once again with guests, including interviews with boxing welterweight superstars Manny Pacquiao and Brandon Rios, as well as mixed martial arts (MMA) referee and judge Rob Hinds and Marc Raimondi from New York Post.

The video player is embedded below for your listening pleasure (just click the play button). Here is a quick preview of what you can expect to hear.

Pacquiao: Stets spoke to the welterweight powerhouse at Tuesday's NYC presser (story here) and (photos gallery here) about his next opponent Brandon Rios, his loss to Juan Manuel Marquez last December and fighting in Macau, China.

Brandon Rios: Pacquiao's opponent in the Nov. 23 Welterweight showdown also spoke to Stets at Tuesday's presser in New York City. He touched on what a win over Pacquiao would mean to him, having more power in his hands than Juan Manuel Marquez and his fan-friendly fight style.

Marc Raimondi: A regular of the show, The NY Post's MMA columnist stops by to discuss the Bellator media call to promote the Rampage Jackson vs. Tito Ortiz pay-per-view (PPV) card on Nov. 2.

Rob Hinds: The longtime MMA referee and judge comes on the show to break down the scoring in the UFC 163 co-main event between Lyoto Machida vs. Phil Davis, discuss how judges actually assess rounds and dispels the commentating myths about how rounds are scored, that are often heard while watching a fight.

Prepare to be educated!
