The MMA Insiders: Jeff Novitzky/Anti-Doping and Jimmy Smith exits Bellator
Sam and Jason are back for the first episode of “The MMA Insiders Podcast” of 2018 and they discuss the recent appearance by Jeff Novitzky and Jimmy Smith on the Joe Rogan Podcast.
Up first, they talk about some of the things that Novitzky stated on Rogan’s podcast about the UFC anti-doping policy with USADA and the Jon Jones case. Sam tells you what surprised him about what Novitzky stated on the podcast and Jason explains why he found the podcast very informative about the UFC anti-doping policy.
Following the discussion about that topic, the guys transition over to Jimmy Smith exiting Bellator and the promotion bringing in “Big” John McCarthy to be a color commentator for Bellator. Sam and Jason talk about this move, whether or not they think Smith could be heading to the UFC, and thoughts on McCarthy being given this opportunity.
Also on this episode of the podcast, they answer listener submitted questions, Dana White’s interview with Kevin Iole, Alliance MMA reportedly purchasing Legacy Fighting Alliance, and Sam tells you what he thinks the Disney/FOX deal and rumored Netflix/Apple talks could impact Viacom and Bellator.

Best MMA show for the Hardcore fan!
Jason and Sam never shy away from any topic, it is part of my Monday night now that I listen to this before going to bed. All trending and popular topics are discussed, Bellator and other promotions are not left out. Sam gives a nice perspective into things. Love that this is a talk show, with no interviews/guests. Jason is a joy to listen to. TURN UP.

The amount of inside analysis on this show really separates it from the rest of the MMA-related podcasts that I listen to.

Unique Perspective From Behind The Scenes
MMA is a sport built on handshakes and secret contracts. MMA media as a whole is full people offering baseless assumptions and conjeture. Sam and Jason do a great job shining some light on subjects that otherwise remain dark, covering news and offering input grounded in real industry experience.
