Santino's World: UFC/PFL star, Jordan Johnson, talks fights, being the "Daddest Man on the Planet", cooking, and more.

Jordan Johnson joins me on this episode of Santino's World of MMA. Jordan was an Illinois state champion and University of Iowa wrestler under Tom and Terry Brands before he transitioned to MMA, where he went 4-0 in the UFC before signing with the PFL, where he was the runner up in the $1 million light heavyweight tournament. Jordan and I talk about his MMA career, which brought him to Arizona from Iowa to train at the MMA Lab. We talk about how he slept in a pantry, a travel trailer, a garage, and then trained with Vitor Belfort and Stipe Miocic. In addition to fighting, we talk about social media, cooking--he's the best average cook there is--dressing like he's a middle-aged father in the 1990's and more. Jordan's hilarious, but also a very hard worker. As a coach, I've rarely seen the dedication he brings to the room, or the intensity. Have a listen. Why not?
