JNPO free podcast: The combat sports coronavirus era has arrived

This is a free show. Just click below to listen.

On Josh Nason's Punch-Out, old friend and co-founder of The Lapsed Fan Jack Encarnacao returns to have a chat about WWE's decision about holding WrestleMania in an empty gym, the UFC looking at an Indian reservation to hold an event before a U.S. government mandate shut it down, how AEW is managing to somehow avoid criticism despite their plan to keep running weekly shows, and the lack of communication around event cancellations and postponements.

We kicked off the discussion with an interesting Jack take on how our social distancing could be the future of pro sports and life in general.

We hit upon how MMA media and fans quickly changed their tune when the prospect of Tyron Woodley vs. Colby Covington was dangled out there, how that proves the UFC will be fine on the other end of this thing, and the sad reality that fighters and wrestlers needed to risk their health to earn some money.

We then wrapped up with a quick chat on Rob Gronkowski's WWE prospects and what episode of The Lapsed Fan newbies should check out.
