Rewind: Zahabi, 'Mighty Mouse' Johnson

Sep 10, 2012

The Sherdog Radio Network "Rewind" is back with another installment of interviews to add some insight and context to your fight week.

In this week's "Step Back: Down to Business" segment, host Jack Encarnacao is joined by Tristar head Firas Zahabi. Zahabi goes in-depth on the recuperation of UFC welterweight superstar Georges St. Pierre from ACL surgery, his outlook on the future, and what techniques he's stressing for the fight with Carlos Condit in November. Zahabi also discusses Rory MacDonald's condition as he heals from a massive cut, his other charges' upcoming bouts, the Fund a Fighter initiative to help fighters afford training expenses, and launching his own Montreal fight promotion.

Then, in the Sunday Sitdown, Encarnacao is joined by UFC flyweight title contender Demetrious Johnson. The son of an absent father and deaf mother, "Mighty Mouse's" journey to the Sept. 22 title flyweight title is full of tumult, resolve and optimism. Last week on The Sitdown, you got to know his upcoming opponent, Joseph Benavidez. This week, observe the interesting parallels and contrasts with Demetrious Johnson, in this week's probing Sunday Sitdown.
