Fight Opinion Radio #74: Judge Jeff Thaler

By Zach Arnold | February 1, 2008

Print Friendly and PDF

We’re 24 hours away from UFC 81 in Las Vegas, Nevada, and we have you covered with a full preview of this weekend’s event. How much interest is there really in the show? Will Brock Lesnar be able to become a major star? Not only do we have our own predictions, but Caleb from MMA Predictions stops by to talk about which way fans are going in terms of predicting the outcome of the Lesnar vs. Mir fight.

Also on the show this week is the debut of Judge Jeff Thaler. Jeff takes a look at two cases on the Fight Opinion court docket, the Zuffa LLC lawsuit against Randy Couture and Xyience filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceeding. We cover all the legal angles on both stories and leave no questions unasked.

Plus, we finish off the show with the world-famous grab bag, talking about the death of The Godfather and putting the history of PRIDE into context. Was PRIDE the biggest scam in the history of MMA?
