Episode 30 - Danny “Last Call” Castillo

On the latest Majority Draw Radio, hosts Ryan McKinnell and Danny Acosta appreciate Chris Weidman’s masterful title defense against Lyoto Machida, wonder why Vitor Belfort is likely next for Weidman despite his PED troubles, remember B.J. Penn’s MMA-shaping career, and touch on Holly Holm and Dominick Cruz coming to the Octagon later this year.

UFC lightweight Danny Castillo of Team Alpha Male stops by to talk about being on the two cancelled cards in UFC history, gains he’s made in his game such as choking out a jiu-jitsu black belt in Brazil after his last fight, guiding younger fighters on his team with sobriety and hard work, and fighting “The Ultimate Fighter” 14 winner Tony Ferguson at UFC 177.

“I think I’m better than [Tony] Ferguson,” Castillo told Majority Draw Radio. “He’s ranked ahead of me but I don’t see why. I’m an 18 fight veteran with Zuffa. Like this kid has five fights. Sure he’s tough but the last guy he knocked out. Are you kidding me? The guy’s hands are down. You’ll knock that guy out. You lock me in the cage with some guy with his hands down I guarantee I’ll win KO.

“I’m not taking anything away from the dude. He’s tough. There’s a lot of things I need to worry about. He’s got a great d’arce choke. He’s got clean boxing. He’s rangy. He’s tough.  But I think everyone forgets I have 10 fights in the UFC. I’ve been around for a long time for a reason. It just happens to be I’m from Team Alpha Male and it’s hard to shine in a fucking camp full of stars. There’s a bunch of good guys there, but I’ve got the most fights on the team in Zuffa.

Episode 29 - Johny Hendricks

On the latest Majority Draw Radio, hosts Ryan McKinnell and Danny Acosta explain Chael Sonnen’s not-surprising HGH and EPO positive drug test, delve into the world-class main event between middleweight champion Chris Weidman and Lyoto Machida at UFC 175, and laugh at Vitor Belfort’s insistence he be granted a title shot in Brazil. 

UFC welterweight kingpin Johny Hendricks drops in for an update on his status, his excitement for Robbie Lawler versus Matt Brown, and his “sixty-percent” belief Georges St-Pierre will return to the Octagon among other topics. “Bigg Rigg” expounded on the difference between him and his competitive rival in St-Pierre.

"Here’s the difference between me and Georges,” the Texas-based champ told Majority Draw Radio, “That if I do clear out the division and Dana says, ‘Hey, Chis Weidman cleared out the division’… If Dana says, ‘Johny, want to fight Chris Weidman?’ I’m not going to say no.”

Hendricks later added, “If I wipe out the division, I won’t hesitate to go higher. I can’t wait to go higher."

With welterweight’s standing as one of the most competitive and historic divisions in UFC history, Hendricks related that will be no easy task.

“Any given night, realistically, whenever I look at my division, the welterweight division, there can be six different champions in the next six years, five years, four years,” he said. “That’s why I’m excited to be at the top of it."

Featherweight contender Jeremy Stephens returns to the show, discussing what could be his ticket to gold, a bout versus Cub Swanson. The Alliance MMA member respects Swanson’s hard-scrabble approach, but also has his confidence at an all-time high, ready to go five rounds with the perennial contender based out of Greg Jackson’s MMA.

Episode 27 - Ricardo Lamas

On this week’s episode of Majority Draw Radio, hosts Ryan McKinnell and Danny Acosta discuss UFC flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson and welterweight Rory MacDonald carrying UFC 174, UFC 205-pound champ Jon Jones feeling publicly squeezed by the company to accept a rematch with Alexander Gustafsson, the Chael Sonnen-Vitor Belfort-Wanderlei Silva can’t-get-licensed dance, and Scott Coker returning to MMA with Bellator. 

Former UFC featherweight title challenger Ricardo Lamas breaks down the challenge ahead of him in rebounding from five rounds with champ Jose Aldo. “The Bully” shares what he would have done different in his first chance at UFC gold and how he’s battling for respect he believes he deserves. 

“I beat myself in that fight,” Lamas told Majority Draw Radio of his Super Bowl Saturday showdown with the Brazilian 145-pound kingpin. “Jose Aldo didn’t beat me. But I know what I’d up be against again. I’m going to prove it against whoever I have to prove it to that I deserve another shot. I’ll be back in there with him.”
