Anthony Birchak, in RNC Radio tradition, re-joins the show a week after appearing ahead of his performance at UFC Fight Night 68 in New Orleans.

Audio available for download on iTunes or on Stitcher Radio

Birchak (@ABirchakMMA) finished Joe Soto in 97 seconds as part of an epic UFC card. It was one of seven first-round finishes on the night.


RNC Radio (@RNCRadio) has a rich tradition of bringing back a guest from the previous week’s show, giving listeners the unique perspective of hearing fighters before and after their respective bouts.

Birchak (12-2) was driving through the desert while he took time to talk with Joe Rizzo (@RearNakedChoke) and Jay Kelly (@JayKellyMMA). He was on his way to the UFC offices to talk about what is coming next for him in the competitive bantamweight division.

As always, feel free to comment below or send feedback about the show to @RNCRadio or @CombatPress on Twitter, or on Facebook at RNC Radio or Combat Press.
