Any questions for Luke Barnatt?

My 'best friend' Luke returns to the podcast on Friday as I'm meeting him in London for Lunch and to record a podcast. 

We also have the exclusive rights to announce his next fight which we will be doing. 

 

Luke has been one of the guests of the year in my eyes and this will be another cracker. 

 

May not be available to download before UFC 205 so staying away from that does anyone have any questions for Mr Big Slow?

 

Thanks!

How's the takedown defense going? That seemed to be the weakest area of his game. Always a stud on the feet. And how long until he's back in the UFC?

Does he like spam fritters? Phone Post 3.0

Are you for or against Brexit and how do you compare that to Trump being elected?

Who do you think will get a call back first, you or John Maguire?

Any chance at all you can make 170lbs or is it a physical impossibility?
 

In th past, what kind of injuries have you walked into a fight with and where do you draw the line on the type of injury a fighter should not be ignoring and pulling out?

PEDS: Without going into specifics, have you tried them and do you think we will be seeing a problem as fighters transition from less regulated smaller shows to the big show which does random pee & blood?

Good question. 

He was working with Phil Davis at Alliance before his Bellator title but will ask him

Many thanks. 

He was 231 lbs when we did the last podcast in Spain so I'm guessing 170 would be very tricky!

i know him well enough to ask about PED's etc so will ask all. Cheers 

231......

Did you have any clue about Josh having a drug problem? Phone Post 3.0

When he was 231 he could still run 2 miles in 10 minutes!

2 Miles is like 10 steps for that human giraffe

True dat!

What podcast is this?

 

 

First. What's the podcast so I can listen to it. 

I love to he all about his background. 

***How he got into it 

****who he trains/ trained with 

****where he's at with his Bjj and grappling 

*****what his favourite techniques are 

I'd like if the focus was mainly on fighting.   

Thats why I love listening to fighter , to hear there ideas about it.      You won't get it anywhere else.

Journalists maybe , but they're a distant second and far too many of them. 

Fighters are really interesting people but make sure you milk that cow dry in that area. It can be so interesting and great to see a glimpse through their lense. 

I get that some fighters are so tired and want to just not think about fighting after doing it so hard so often with the training but that's the stuff I like to listen to. 

Politics , social issues , I like to here their take too but not if it's going to cut into the time that could be spent talking about the combat area. 

****Whose your favourite fighter /most influential 

*****where the sports going in terms of evolution/technique/style. 

****What style is the best if you had to pick one 

****if he could get specific about certain techniques would be great,especially discussing common techniques people get wrong and why. 

 

ect....ect.  

 

Im looking forward listening
