On the Mat
“On the Mat with Daniel and Alex” is a place where we talk about martial arts: traditional martial arts, mixed martial arts, combatives, the business of martial arts, and more. On every episode our hosts, Daniel Martine and Alex Rodriguez, discuss topical issues within the martial arts industry and will interview legends and leaders in the martial arts community. Start enjoying the podcast by listening to our newest episode.
On this week’s episode: Daniel and Alex talk about the Bernard Hopkins – Chad Dawson fight, and try to figure out what is in the future for Hopkins. They also talk about the inaugural Invicta FC fights from this past weekend, recapping Marloes Coenen vs. Romy Ruyssen, and Sarah Maloy vs. Michele Gutierrez. And finally, can Daniel stump Alex on this week’s Martial Arts Fun Fact?
We are also including last week’s episode, an interview with Hapkido Grandmaster and own of Martial Arts Family Fitness Dave Wheaton.
