Episode 39 - Scott “Chuckino” Boudreau

While the UFC may have taken Easter off, the Eye of the Storm MMA Podcast certainly didn't! Justin caught up with multi-time, multi-belt IBJJF World Champion, BJJ black belt  and Budo MMA owner/head coach Scott "Chuckinho" Boudreau to talk about his martial arts journey, his approaches to both coaching and competing, and that time he was in a band called Naked for Jesus. A great conversation with a fixture of Metro Vancouver's martial arts community, with some great tips in there for would-be coaches and gym owners. There's also an update on co-host Christiaan Allaart and how his 6 month training excursion is going! So be sure to give it a listen, a rating, and a review either below, on iTunes, or on Stitcher Radio.

Additionally, former Eye of the Storm MMA Podcast guest Ryan Gibson, of Hammerhead Sports Management could really use some help. Ryan was diagnosed with ocular melanoma - that's right, cancer of the eye - and was forced to sacrifice his eye in order to save his own life. Unfortunately, Ryan lives in the US, where health coverage even if you have insurance is spotty at best, and the surgery to remove his cancerous eye was shockingly expensive. To that end, a GoFundMe has been established to help Ryan pay for the $20,000 surgery. If at all possible, I humbly request that you help Mr. Gibson out in any way you can. He's done a lot to help MMA fighters like Justin Gaethje get some serious sponsorship money, and the least we can do as a community is give back.

Episode 36 - UFC 196 Cliffs Notes/Robin Black Replay

It's a time-pressed episode of the Eye of the Storm MMA Podcast, but that doesn't mean we're not bringing you worthwhile content! Hosts Justin Pierrot & Christiaan Allaart quickly go over the major UFC 196 fallout, but don't want to leave you hanging with a teeny, tiny podcast. That's why there is a replay of one of the guys' favorite interviews to date, with the Fight Network's Robin Black from October 2015, added in for your listening pleasure! If you haven't heard the interview before, it offers a great look at how far the game had come, and predictors of how MMA technique has evolved since from Canada's top fight analyst. Check it out below, and don't forget to listen, subscribe, and review on iTunes and Stitcher!
