The dynamic trio gives fans their daily fix of all-things MMA

UFC veteran and crew deliver raw commentary, expert analysis

Las Vegas, NV (September 30, 2007)– Tune into TAGG RADIO on Monday October 1st at 9:00 a.m. (pst) for an interview with Gilbert Melendez who will talk about his win this past weekend at the Playboy Mansion.

Colorful banter aside, the website and show produces rather intriguing discussions appealing to MMA diehards and casual fans alike.

“We bring together people who are not only passionate about MMA but extremely knowledgeable from a first-hand perspective,” said Brian Garcia, a.k.a Goze. “We’re the only daily radio show featuring a professional fighter as a co-host.”

And they make sure all aspects of the sport are covered. In addition to interviewing top fighters like Randy Couture, Matt Serra, Ken Shamrock, Babalu Sobral and Royce Gracie, the TAGG RADIO crew has also featured some of MMA’s top personalities and key players like judges, coaches, cut men and other experts.

Listeners have tuned into interviews with the likes of UFC judge Richard Bertrand, MMA journalist Loretta Hunt, the UFC broadcast team: Joe Rogan, Mike Goldberg, Eddie Bravo, and Bruce Buffer, and established women fighters like Lisa King of Oxygen’s Fight Girls series.

The show launched in April and has already produced an avid following. The guys attribute the show’s success to the fact that it’s really much more than a radio show — it gives fans the chance to really get to know their favorite fighters.

Listeners are encouraged to call in with questions and comments and can also log in to a chat room (TAGG RADIO Combat Chat) where featured fighters have been known to show up to rap candidly with fans.

The website also offers a forum, fighter rankings and a free archive of all past shows.

One other aspect that sets TAGG RADIO apart from other radio shows and further displays the team’s commitment to the sport and its development is the fact that the show sponsors fighters like Frank Trigg, Tiki Ghosn, Gilbert Melendez, Cub Swanson, Michael Guymon and “Fight Girls” fighters Felice Herrig and Lisa King.

“No other radio show sponsors local fighters,” said Goze. “We feel we owe it to the MMA community to support new talent and take established talent to new places.”
