Episode 60 - Jacob Miller

Another week, another episode of the Eye of the Storm MMA Podcast! Host Justin Pierrot returns to give you a rundown of UFC on FOX 21 with an additional perspective: He was there! That means there is a little more to this recap to enjoy. This week's episode also brings "Deep Month" on the Eye of the Storm MMA Podcast to a close, with Industrial-Organizational Psychologist Jacob Miller joining the show for the interview portion. Justin and Jacob look at the UFC's working conditions, why fighters are reluctant to organize, and what kind of union structure maybe necessary to best serve the fighters. If you're at all interested in the labor rights of fighters, this is one to listen to! Hear it below, on iTunes, or Stitcher!
