UFCmania is thrilled to announce our collaboration with Luke Thomas – of BloodyElbow.com and WhoopAss radio fame – to offer the first online radio program that covers UFC events before and after each show.
"Any Given Saturday" will let UFC fans discuss the pay-per-view (PPV) fights and Ultimate Fight Nights LIVE on the air, as well as hear exclusive interviews with the top mixed martial artists in the sport past and present.
Former UFC welterweight contender and one-time ICON middleweight champion Frank Trigg will check-in from time-to-time during the half-hour, two-part show, and his company Triggonomics is on board as the radio call-in show's title sponsor.
In fact, the always controversial "Twinkle Toes" Trigg will stop in this Saturday at 2:30 p.m. ET for the inaugural episode to share his picks for UFC 72: "Victory," which airs on PPV at 3 p.m. ET.
But that's not all: BetUs.com, which is among the most trusted sportsbooks in the world, has also been kind enough to show its support with some cash giveaways to a few lucky listeners.
Don't doubt either that we won't have a few other surprises in store for listeners.
Luke – perhaps the hardest working "part time" MMA blogger, writer, ringside color commentator and radio personality – will be the host of "Any Given Saturday."
So how do you tune in this Saturday?
Here are all the particulars:
Saturday, June 16
2:30 to 3 p.m. ET (prefight)
6 to 6:30 p.m. (postfight)

Don't forget to also bookmark the page -- this is more than just a one-shot deal.
In addition, please don't make excuses about the phone number. It's the weekend ... cell phone minutes are FREE!
It's gonna be sick -- nothing like it exists ... until now.
Talk to you on Saturday.
