Rear-Naked Choke Radio turns 11 years old as Joe Rizzo (@RearNakedChoke) and Jay Kelly (@JayKellyMMA) return to the podcast ethernet to talk MMA. It’s a hang in which the listeners get to know the hosts (and guests) as real people.

With UFC 223 in Brooklyn in the offing, Rizzo and Kelly break down the two title fights, as well as the possibilities for the men’s 155-pound and women’s 115-pound circuits. Women’s strawweight titleholder Rose Namajunas defends her crown against Joanna Jędrzejczyk. Lightweight kingpin Tony Ferguson puts his interim belt on the line against Khabib Nurmagomedov in a bout to determine the real champion while Conor McGregor sits idle.

Jason Kelly
Radio Host

Jason Kelly has been a lifelong fan of martial arts and was instantly hooked on MMA after watching the pay-per-view broadcast of UFC 1 at 12 years old. The Canadian dabbled in martial arts and MMA over the years, but the sport he excelled at was basketball. Jason’s introduction to MMA media started at MMA Religion, which led to his position as a feature writer on MMA DieHards. Jason eventually became the Feature Content Manager at MMA DieHards. His duties at MMA DieHards led to hosting MMA DieHards Radio and MMA Cypher Radio with Corey Charron, before going on to join Joe Rizzo's longtime-running show, Rear Naked Choke Radio. Following a short hiatus from covering the sport he loves, Jason joined the staff at Combat Press. Aside from his interest in MMA, Jason has a passion for hip hop, especially battle rap. He considers himself a hip hop connoisseur and is always up for a conversation on the subject.
