Rear-Naked Choke Radio: UFC Cutwoman Swayze Valentine

It ain’t Valentine’s Day, but it’s a lovely day in the RNC Radio house.

In this heart-filled episode, UFC cutwoman Swayze Valentine (@swayzevalentine) lent time to Joe Rizzo (@rearnakedchoke) and Jason Kelly (@JayKellyMMA) to give an in-depth interview, yet show her personality and be an instantaneous reoccurring guest.

Audio available for download on iTunes or on Stitcher Radio


Valentine dug deep to share the painful parts of her past, both physically and emotionally, to allow her fans and our listeners into her life.

While succeeding in a male-dominated industry, there’s the obvious sexism the Alaskan faced. Valentine, however, went through much bigger obstacles. From a bitter custody battle, to being shunned and complimented by her peers. Valentine persevered, through moose, windows and all, to be on RNC Radio and give you a glimpse into a life that is soon-to-be scripted, if Rizzo’s heart has it’s way.
