We're a day late this week because one of us took too much Benadryl on Sunday to record an episode - guess which one. We talk about quarantine movies and TV shows we've been watching, cutting down trees, new scotch, cigar pairings, submission underground, soup and much more. We also talk about UFC 249 and the fact that it's more likely that Kim Jong Un is faking his death than this card actually happens. Don't worry, we don't talk MMA until the very end of the show.

This week we would have been breaking down the results of UFC 249 - but since Disney and the coronavirus cancelled it, we had to talk about something else. We still discuss Tony Ferguson making weight for the cancelled event. We also go through a list of our top five favorite fighters who have never won a UFC title. Our lists overlap a bit, but for the most part they are unique to us because they are all fighters who have a significant meaning to us for different reasons. The only criteria is that they have fought in the UFC and never won a title or interim title. As always, we appreciate feedback, ratings, reviews and shares - cheers! --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/mmaontherocks/support

I kick off this special edition episode by interviewing BKFC 8 fighter Dave Mundell. Dave talks about his experience as an undefeated (2-0) bare knuckle boxer, how his MMA training helped him, being a part of the bkfc organization and most importantly - taking a bare knuckle boxing match just two weeks before his wedding day! After the interview with Dave, I give a full recap of BKFC 8 from the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa, Florida. I was there live as credentialed media to cover the event. I had conversations with Wanderlei Silva, former UFC heavyweight champion, Fabricio Werdum and BKFC favorite, Jason Knight. I talk about the action of the knight, big knockouts, who stood out, who couldn't stand up and who had the best game plans. Cheers!
