Matt and Jim are off today.
That doesn't mean we don't have something for you to listen to.
Din’s Got Answers is a new pilot hosted by our pal and yours Din Thomas.
A little about the show:
Got questions about the UFC? Well, Din Thomas is here to answer them. Din will use his experience as a UFC veteran, analyst, comedian, coach to the biggest names in the sport, co-star of Dana White: Lookin’ for a Fight, host of The Din Diaries, and more to answer your questions about everything and anything UFC related.
On this episode, Din will focus on three questions. First, what is up with all the bromances in the UFC? Second, how important is a fighter’s coach and corner to their success? And third, Din gets into some WTF moments in the UFC, including the Chimaev vs Burns fight and Jake Paul thinking he can knock out Conor McGregor in an MMA fight.
Din kicks things off with how his personal bromance with Matt Serra formed. Then, he moves on to one of the best bromances flourishing in the sport today between Darren Till and Khamzat Chimaev. Next, Din hits on what went wrong in the most volatile bromance in recent history, Jorge Masvidal and Colby Covington. To close out the bromances answer, Din goes back in time as he touches on a former bromance between Jon Jones and Rashad Evans.
You’ve asked how important a coach and corner are to a fighter? And, Din has his answer. He begins with hitting on the two types of coaches, a developer and a groomer and then he stresses the importance of the relationship formed between a coach and fighter. To help answer this question, Din hollers at his homie Ray Longo, who is the head coach of the Serra-Longo fight team. Ray gives his inside experience of cornering Aljamain Sterling against Petr Yan at UFC 273 and also emphasizes how crucial the coach-fighter relationship is.
To wrap things up, DIn drops his answers to some WTF moments in the UFC. Including just how incredible the recent Chimaev vs. Burns fight was, and Jake Paul saying he would knockout Conor McGregor in an MMA fight.
