Ringside Report Network
Ringside Report focuses primarily on Mixed Martial Arts with a strong emphasis on the top promoter the UFC. MMA is a sport that has been growing at a phenomenal pace for the past several years. It's reach is growing with more and more regional promotions starting up all over the US. Wrestling Uncensored is a conversation about Pro Wrestling between Dave Simon and Professional Wrestler, Johnny North available once per week. They discuss and debate the latest storylines in the WWE and other companies and are not afraid to provide their own brand of honest criticism from the perspective of a true fan. Both guys have been watching Pro Wrestling since they were kids and bring that child-like emotion into their back and forth that has people "tweeting" about the shows for days after they are broadcast. Host Dave Simon's enthusiasm for Combat Sports is engaging his audiences. We're finding fans of one sport listening to the other show just because of the way Dave entertains. Listeners to both shows are mostly in a male 18-49 year old demographic. We have people either listening live to the Internet stream or downloading the podcast from across Canada and the USA as well as Europe and Asia.
Ringside Report Radio. July 9, 2010

This is the July 9, 2010 episode of Ringside Report Radio hosted by Dave Simon and Kevin "Big Tuna" McKough.

Quebec's best MMA referee and one of the world's best, Yves Lavigne, appeared via telephone on this episode to talk about the sport of MMA in Quebec. Lavigne went hard at the Quebec athletic commission, detailing the many discrepancies in the Quebec MMA rule book. Lavigne explained that knee strikes and submissions are technically illegal in provincial law but fights under the unified MMA rules continue to occur because of ignorance of the law while legislators refuse to actually write MMA rules into law.

Dave and Kevin discussed the Japanese-based Dream promotion and gave a full preview and predictions for DREAM 15 including Gegard Mousasi v. Jake O'Brien and the main event of Shinya Aoki defending his lightweight title against Tatsuya Kawajiri.

All this and much more MMA talk on this 2-hour episode of Ringside Report Radio.
