MMA Dude Bro Podcast

BJJ black belt (& instructor at the world-famous American Kickboxing Academy) Clint Cronin grew up an avid fan of professional wrestling, comic books & computers. Little did he know back then how those interests would parlay themselves into an adult life that has taken him around the world, experiencing people & places that most would only see in a movie. During our conversation, Clint shares with us: how he feels combat sports (jiu jitsu in particular) represent the 'last honest jobs’, the reason HE feels AKA has become a scapegoat in the MMA media for alleged dangerous training practices, how achieving the rank of black belt served as merely a starting point rather than a destination in his jiu jitsu journey, how Los Angeles has gradually replaced the Bay Area as California’s MMA hub … and  much, much more.

PLUS, on this double-mega episode, Dave & Ken look back on UFC Fight Night Pittsburgh, UFC 215, GGG vs. Canelo Alvarez – and other miscellaneous happenings of the last few weeks. They also take a moment or two to remember the late great WWE Hall of Famer Bobby ‘The Brain’ Heenan. Hashtag, MMA Dude Bro!
