SFLC Podcast – Episode 206: Campbell McLaren, Aspen Ladd & Tony Ferguson
A jam packed episode of the show! We kick things off with one of the people behind the origination of the UFC and the CEO of Combate Americas, Campbell McLaren (@CampbellCombate). We get you all fired up for the organization’s debut in Mexico this Thursday Night, Combate 10, LIVE and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass in the US. Not only that, we get Campbell’s take on the UFC sale, Lorenzo Fertitta’s reaction to he and his team’s bid to purchase the UFC before WME-IMG bought it, the current state of the UFC, and his thoughts on the UFC Hall of Fame!
We then chat with Invicta Bantmweight Aspen Ladd (@AspenLaddMMA), someone you guys have been asking me to have on the show since her big win this past Saturday over Sijara Eubanks to remain undefeated. We talk about her career, her goals, the big win and her team at MMA Gold and how they have gotten her to this point. Keep your eyes on Aspen Ladd in 2017.
We wrap things up with “El Cucuy” Tony Ferguson (@TonyFergusonXT) as the fight we all want to see will be happening! March 4th in Vegas, the co-main event of UFC 209, he will take on Khabib Nurmagomedov for the interim UFC Lightweight Title! Tony is ready for this fight, just like the rest of us are, the UFC has given him what he has asked for. He also talks about becoming a Dad and how that has impacted his career. Always enjoy chatting with “El Cucuy”.
