At the beginning of this edition of the podcast, Sam Caplan explains why this is his last episode as the co-host of The MMA Insiders Podcast and Jason Floyd explains some changes in how he covers mixed martial arts on a daily basis.

After getting their announcements out of the way, the guys immediately get into what is going on with former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. Sam offers some insight into mixed martial arts contracts and explains why St-Pierre may not be a free agent like the fighter says he is.

Other topics from this edition of the podcast include the World Series of Fighting canceling two events, layoffs at the UFC, recent Dana White comments and Sam ends the show by talking about the time Frank Shamrock nearly became the President of Bellator.

    Sad to see Sam go, but hope he will be back in guest co-host role.
    Excellent show like always guys. Will continue to listen it.
    Thanks for debunking WSOF Ray Sefo spin about 2 show cancellation.

    I knew WSOF NYC card would have 3 title fights on it. I predicted it on here like a week ago. But will the event actually happen due to the multiple lawsuits?

      That is a question that really only the New York Athletic Commission can answer. Clearly, the World Series of Fighting has to answer some questions from the Nevada Athletic Commission right now based on the reports that are out there. And as I started earlier this week this podcast, multiple people I have talked to in the industry are convinced that Ali Abdel-Aziz is still part of the promotion.

        I’ve been saying that I think he is still working with WSOF. I didn’t buy it then and I’m not buying it now. That he doesn’t still work for them.

        And did you hear what Ray Sefo said on the MMA Hour? He said I’d have to get together with Ali and the others to decide. He said that when answering one of Ariel’s ?’s

        I am guessing you did not listen to this episode of the podcast as I played the clip for Sefo briefing mentioning Ali.

        I just listened to the first 5 mins to know why Sam was leaving the show.

    On the Bellator/ Bamma co promoted event. Will the Bamma fights be shown on Spike?


    Happy Trails Sam Caplan, and if I ever win Powerball, I will surely hire you and Jason Floyd and some hot chick to do a once a week YouTube show covering MMA.
