Our own Jesse Holland stopped in to chat with Ariel Helwani at JarryPark.com to recap UFC 80: "Rapid Fire," preview UFC Fight Night 12 and ramble on about all things mixed martial arts (MMA).
Here are some specific discussion points:
- BJ Penn's victory over Joe Stevenson
- What to expect from a Penn-Sherk match up
- The way the Sherk situation was handled on the UFC 80 telecast
- Fabricio Werdum's place in the heavyweight division
- The rise and fall of Kendall Grove
- Mike Swick vs. Josh Burkman, Patrick CÃƒÂ´tÃƒÂ© vs. Drew McFedries and the rest of the UFC Fight Night 12 card tonight
- Andrei Arlovski, Mirko Cro Cop and Evan Tanner's UFC future
Check it out when you have some time right here (there's also an audio player included at the bottom of this post). It turned out to be a solid discussion.
Thanks again to Ariel for inviting Jesse to "The Park." He's alienated most if not all of his friends at this point in his life so it made him feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
That's what he said, anyway.
