Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

GOOOOD MORNING, POTATO NATION! It’s Time for Episode 3 of The Bum Rush Radio Show

(Goldstein during his Taxi Driver phase.)

If you’re looking for something to help you cruise into the weekend, we’ve got you covered. Episode 3 of "The Bum Rush" features more of our terribly inaccurate fight predictions, an insider round table featuring the usual suspects: Ben, Mike, Chad and Chad’s hype man, ReX13 discussing current MMA news and last weekend’s UFC card and an interview with UFC 116 slam master, Gerald Harris.

Find a cold, dark corner to hide in and keep your laughter to a minimum and you may be able to avoid your boss long enough to get through this damn thing.

As always, your input is appreciated. Let us know who you want to hear on the show, what we’re doing mediocrely and what areas we need to step up our games in.

We’re working to get the show on iTunes by next episode to make it more easily accessible and to make it at least seem more legit.

Only real balance blog show on the lesnar/carwin fight I've seen.

You may be correct there. And i *promise* you, i will be using that threat at the first opportunity.

Not hating on ya Rex, but if you're posting articles and appearing on the podcast then you are in there. Jump somebody's shit next week. If BG disagrees with you, threaten to fuck his jawbone loose. It would be excellent radio and you might get asst editor as a title or something. Win/win.

And I think you are dead wrong on the vanilla gorilla. He is THE #1 HW in the world now, and I think he comes back even harder on Cain.

Purppick>> Yeah, i know, i was having an off week. Damn, gimme a break--i hadn't had anything to drink. These bastards want to tape the shows in the middle of the afternoon.

The hawk says DeNiro but the chest beaver says Robin Williams all the way.

Here are my thoughts about episode three that you been dyin to hear.

1. I listen on a 4gb Nano that is busting at the seams, so the sixteen minutes of dead air at the end are not appreciated. I use the nano because I am cheap and it is small and I can secret it in my anus if things go sideways. Don't use up my precious available memory.

2. A little dry on this run, at least up until the roundtable. Funny it up a little. You are CP, act like it.

3. I am looking foward to having BR on itunes.

4. Ben and that fucking Dundas pwned the roundtable.

5. Gerald Harris is all over the podcasts this week. He should split the ko bonus with Branch, since he did as much to contribute to the slam as Harris.

6. Rex, take the dildo out and assert yourself a little. It's a roundtable, not a circle jerk.

7. You seem to be distancing the Bum Rush from CagePotato a little. Big mistake. Tie it togetther a little. You are the proprietors of the most unique mma site out there. Own that shit.

Thank you, and here's looking foward to episode four.

Nevermind, Mike. I read the title of this article again. You obviously know both movies, as well. And Ben's (is that what he looks like?) faux-hawk and an army green jacket does make him look a little like Travis Bickle, sorta. I guess.

M Russ. Can you please get this on itunes as a Podcast? This sucks to download it.
2DaDeath- July 9, 2010 at 11:47 am

I've totally seen both movies. And for YOUR reference:


Now who's the young'n? Bitch. (j/k)

 I'm guessing 2Da is a young'n...For reference:hxxp://
ReX13- July 9, 2010 at 11:12 am
2DaDeath>> C'mon, you know Travis Bickle, right?
2DaDeath- July 9, 2010 at 10:53 am
Taxi Driver phase? What the hell are you smoking guys?

That's clearly from Good Morning, Vietnam.
ReX13- July 9, 2010 at 10:48 am
Agreed, you'll get more listeners quickly by streaming, but i do like having a direct link to download it.

steampunk has good points. Lots of the Potato Nation is going to be less interested in the show if it's just two weeks of articles.

Ok, guys, are we trying to be funny? Cause i wanted to be, but i was doing it wrong. You know what? Doesn't matter. I'll just be wildly inappropriate next time (if you ever invite me back).

There's got to be something to distinguish BumRush from every other MMA podcast out there. What is that, exactly?

Damn, 90 minutes? Seriously? I think you need a timekeeper to make sure answers stay under twenty minutes. Just sayin.

Ben>> Did you get through the entire thing without saying "no homo"? I must have missed it. Also, did you tranq the dog?

Mike>> Technical production is better every time. Still say you should have really short clips (10-20 seconds) between each segment. Are you getting fighters to record CP/BumRush shout outs when they interview with you?

Viva Hate- July 9, 2010 at 10:48 am
Damn of all the days to forget my headphones!

You know it would be a lot easier if you guys would send everyone Cagepotato edition Bose noise cancelling headphones…………..just sayin.

You asked, so I'm gonna tell.

Simplify the intro, it started cool but then went on for a minute and a half. This is the internet and the age of youtube, I started to lose interest before it even started. ;)

Sounds very much like a radio show, which, is cool, but you guys were a little light on the humour I thought, so depending on which way you are trying to go with this, it was either dry and informative or relatively boring. If you're going more for talk radio sports show about MMA its pretty good. Good background while doing other stuff.

It listened like a compilation of every article I've read in the last week, but for someone who maybe doesn't have the time to keep themselves up to date I could see where the appeal would be.

LOL but what the fuck do I know? ;P

Be much easier to goof off at work if this were a stream...just saying.
ReX13- July 9, 2010 at 7:15 am
Ben>> Figure out what to call me. You never say the same thing twice, playa.
