JNPO Classic: How I helped Jorge Rivera charge his iPhone


On the August 4, 2011, edition of ESPN NH's WGAM MMA Show, yours truly was ready to hit the road to UFC 133 in Philadelphia, PA.

After hearing of co-host/producer PJ Huot's nose hair trimmer incident, we did a full preview of the card which includes my continued mispronounciation of names like Alexander Gustafsson.

We then talked to now-retired UFC middleweight Jorge Rivera, getting the true story about how I helped him charge his iPhone at UFC Boston, his thoughts on three planned fights with Alessio Sakara falling through, and how the gameplan had changed for his UFC 133 opponent Costa Phillipou. He told us about his relationship with Ranger Up and thoughts on a possible retirement.

We wrapped up the show with a review of the big Strikeforce show that was puncutated by Dan Henderson's memorable knockout of Fedor Emelianenko.
