On this week's show, Stets is joined by Al Iaquinta, Stephen Koepfer and Luke Rockhold.

Darce Side Radio is back with a solid lineup of guests for Episode 32.

A new MMA TV series called "Choke Artist" has been in the works the last several months, and a sizzle reel is currently being pitched to networks. Al Iaquinta is playing the lead role of Judd Pulaski in the project and he along with producer Stephen Koepfer came on the program to talk about the show, and shared their experience in filming the reel that has been garnering a lot of attention and buzz and could very well be picked up by a network or streaming service in the near future.

In addition to waxing about his new challenge as an actor, Iaquinta previewed his current task at hand, a lightweight matchup against Mitch Clarke at this coming weekend's UFC 173 event. A win over Clarke would make that four in a row for the Serra-Longo fighter and improve his UFC record to 4-1.

Koepfer was an in-studio guest this week and in addition to coming on with Iaquinta served as Episode 32's co-host. The president of the American Sambo Association is the head instructor at NY Combat Sambo in New York City and produced the documentary NY MMA that came out in 2011.

Rockhold came on to promote the new art exhibit he is featured in called "Optical Panacea" at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The AKA fighter also shared his thoughts on who is potential next opponent may be.
