SIRIUSXM RUSH is adding a three-times-per-week Mixed Martial Arts talk show with a prominent fighter and a retired NFL player and MMA enthusiast among the hosts.
“MMA TODAY” will air every TUESDAY, WEDNESDAY, and THURSDAY 6-8p (ET), with former UFC Women’s Bantamweight champion MIESHA TATE co-hosting WEDNESDAYS with SEAN O’CONNELL and former GREEN BAY PACKERS linebacker A.J. HAWK co-hosting TUESDAYS and THURSDAYS with R.J. CLIFFORD.
“When I got the opportunity to host my own radio show on SIRIUSXM it was a no brainer,” said TATE. “Yes, of course I want to join the biggest radio company out there and have the chance to talk to MMA fans all across the country! I’m excited to share what I’ve learned from my time in and out of the octagon. SEAN and I will have a lot of fun talking about life, MMA and more! I can’t wait to begin!”
“I have always gravitated to anything related to combat sports. I watch fighting and football, and I jump at the chance to talk about both,” said HAWK. “I played in the NFL for 11 years and loved the physical nature of the sport, and I have watched and respected MMA and its athletes for many years. I’m excited for the future of all things MMA, and the opportunity to join SIRIUSXM RUSH and talk combat sports with R.J. is a dream come true.”
“MIESHA and A.J. are outstanding additions to the SIRIUSXM RUSH roster and this is an exciting step for us as we continue to grow the channel and deliver fans the best in combat sports coverage,” said SIRIUSXM SVP/Sports Programming STEVE COHEN. “As athletes they have reached the pinnacle of their sports, and they have a passion for MMA that many fans will identify with. MMA Today is a must listen for MMA fans.”
