This past Wednesday night we went LIVE on Facebook for The Cage Side with Christopher James Show, and we had a lot of fun. We spoke with newly signed UFC Straw-weight and Island Fights veteran Hannah “24K” Goldy about her upcoming short notice bout at #UFCNEWARK on August 3rd, her role as an inspiration to single moms, and what her plans are as she enters the ranks of the UFC.
We had a conversation with Cade Howell, the grandson of Hall of Fame boxing referee, and a legitimate boxer in his own right Tommy Kimmons about his upcoming professional debut at Island Fights 58 August 2nd in Pensacola. We talked about his grandpa, sang a few songs, and Howell gave us his impression of Karl Childers the character Billy Bob Thornton played in the film “Sling Blade”!
Bare knuckle fighting, we do that! Arnold Adams the reigning Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship Heavyweight Champion came through. We hit on his upcoming title defense at Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship 7 vs UFC veteran Chase Sherman, getting whoppings from our elders, and all kinds of topics.
