By TJ De Santis Mar 17, 2014

TJ De Santis returned to the Sherdog Radio Network Monday for another edition of “Beatdown.” De Santis recapped a busy weekend in mixed martial arts as he was joined by Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney, newly crowned Bellator featherweight champion Pat Curran, and striking coach for UFC welterweight Johny Hendricks, Steven Wright.

Pat Curran was headed for a loss Friday night in Hammond, Indiana. After a competitive first round champion Daniel Straus took over in the 5 round affair. However, Pat Curran wasn’t ready to table his title aspirations. With just 14 seconds left in the fight ended with Straus succumbing to a Curran rear-naked choke that seemingly came out of now where. “Paddy Mike” joined TJ Monday to talk about the fight, the epic comeback, and what he had to do to snatch the title from the jaws of defeat..

Bellator’s season 10 continues this Friday night. CEO Bjorn Rebney joined TJ De Santis to talk about this week’s upcoming card which features a light-heavyweight unification fight between champion Attila Vegh and interim champion Emmanuel Newton. Rebney also discusses various tournament bouts, and recaps last Friday’s Bellator 112 card.

Johny Hendricks became the UFC’s welterweight champion Saturday night in Dallas when he defeated Robbie Lawler. Striking coach Steven Wright was in the corner of Hendricks at UFC 171. The Team Takedown instructor joined TJ to chat about the contest, the strategy implemented as the fight played out, and how important the final round was in securing the title.

TJ also takes listener calls, emails, and tweets. He also tries out a new segment called “Quick Hits.”
