After a 2 week break we’re back! September is all about Bushido and that’s the topic of this weeks show.
The lightweight division is almost non-existent in the United Stated. In the UFC Jens Pulver once was the man that held the title. On top of that people all over the world considered him the man at 155, Due to a contract dispute Pulver left the UFC and was stripped of his title. 2003 came upon us and Pulver suffered 2 tough back to back losses to Duane Ludwig and Jason Maxwell. Since then “Lil Evil” has gone 5-1 and is position to establish himself as one of the best lightweight fighters in the world. Listen to Jens talk about being down and out and how he feels about possibly making history. No one has ever hald a UFC title and then gone overseas and won a Pride title. Jens looks to make a huge step towards that goal on September 25th.
Yves Edwards is also in the mix for the Pride lightweight title. Unlike Jens, Yves never held the title of UFC champion, but many consider him the peoples champ. Yves has dismantled everyone that has recently stepped in front of him. Franca twice, and more notably one of the craziest spinning high kicks in martial arts history, a vicious KO of Josh Thomson. Make sure you check out this weeks Evolution to hear the ThugJitsu expert talk Pride and his fight with Joachim Hansen.
