Fight Opinion Radio #43: Ed Fishman

By Zach Arnold | March 23, 2007

Print Friendly and PDF

We have an outstanding interview this week with Ed Fishman, former PRIDE USA President. In this 70-minute interview, Ed discusses the Fishman Companies lawsuit versus Dream Stage Entertainment. There are some very intriguing facts coming out of this interview that you have not heard anywhere else. We have interviewed a lot of power brokers in MMA, and I think this interview will certainly go down as a historic one in the annals of FOR archives.

Plus, we have business discussion about the IFL. What changes would be recommend take place for the IFL to succeed in North America? And to cap everything off, it’s the return of the world famous Grab Bag, the highest quarter-rated segment in all of MMA radio. 100% demographically tested and approved with anger and intensity.

Music on this week’s radio show is provided to us by Retaliate. Definitely check out their site and listen to their music. Thumbs up to them.

  1. [...] If you want to do a little more reading about this whole thing, you can go through the archives.
