JNPO: ESPN's Brett Okamoto spins 'round the UFC world


Josh Nason's Punch-Out returns for a special Saturday episode featuring past guest Brett Okamoto of ESPN.

On the docket this week is how ESPN dealt with the Ronda Rousey exclusive from Brett's side of things, including the realities of journalism in 2018 vs. what journalistic training has taught us in how news is supposed to be broken. We also went into Brett's column about Rousey, her feelings toward the sport, and how she has a lot left to give even if it's not in the cage.

We then move into how Brett is handling the weekly UFC shows and how prospects like Eryk Anders are affected going into his Saturday night main event vs. Lyoto Machida at UFC Fight Night Belem.

Finally, we wrap on our thoughts on champion vs. champion fights and a fourth potential champion vs. champion fight that is flying under the radar. 

The non-Radio Row Super Bowl weekend edition of JNPO is here.
