Here is the full episode of Fight Companion from October 21, 2016. This is one of the best fight companions they’ve had in a while. Yves is an old school lightweight MMA fighter, he has a great fighting IQ and he is a funny dude. Joe Schilling is an amazing Muay Thai fighter who also competes in MMA once in a while. Hearing them speak about their past experiences and some of the behind the scenes stories is awesome. If you have the time I recommend listening to the whole episode, it’s totally worth it if you a a hardcore MMA fan or even a new fan trying to learn more. – aGIANTmonster

Johnson “Look, I sent Jimi 12 hours of sleep so he could get his thoughts right.”
Johnson is a funny ass dude.
Rogan and Cerrone talk in depth on his combination against Rick Story. There are also rumors that Cerrone might face Lawler at UFC 205 in New York. That will be an amazing fight.
