Last week I had the chance to talk with UFC Featherweight from right here in Tampa, Florida, Aalon Cruz. This hard-working young man, who maintains his regular job at local grocery chain Publix, tells about life as a fighter that can’t fight due to the Coronavirus pandemic. During the interview, we were chatting about another Florida based UFC fighter Niko Price. Price suddenly joined us on the comment thread, and I brought him on as a surprise guest since he and Cruz are friends and periodically train together.
This episode was fun and with the addition of the always up for a good time Price, became a great show. We even discussed who had the best man-bun!
