The Joe Show ft. Charles Bennett and Antonio McKee
By: Brad, Nick and Mike
January 6th, 2011Lots going on this week. Strikeforce announced its Heavyweight Grand Prix and the UFC cut a lot of fighters.
Join us as we discuss the HWGP and what it means for the heavyweight division of MMA. This thing could get really interesting.
Also, following UFC 125 the UFC let go of Brandon Vera, Marcus Davis, Phil Baroni and Antonio McKee.
The biggest shocker of the bunch was the release of Antonio McKee. I don't think anybody could honestly feel that he got a fair shake in his debut with the premier organization of the sport.
We decided to touch base with Antonio and get his thoughts. While he's upset with the news he feels that he gained a lot of respect from the fans following his loss to Volkmann.
Antonio plans to hit the gym first thing Monday and get back into the rhythm of training. He feels that he clearly won the fight and the loss will make him become something other than a decision fighter, a submission artist.
Also on the show was Charles 'Kid Khaos' Bennett. Bennett has recently regrouped and is attempting to start his career over with a fresh start.
With the help of Rashad Evans he plans to make his home at 145 and try out once again for The Ultimate Fighter.
Also, we get his story about what happened at Pride Shockwave concerning Chute Boxe.
Yes, Charles knocked Wanderlei Silva out.
The call in number is 1-877-JOE-SHOW.
