Brad's favourite era of his career was his time at the WEC before the UFC bought the organisation. We go into detail on his fights with Top Miletich Team member Kyle Dietz, the victory over the fighter many experts hold as Greatest of All Time Demetrious Johnson - his victory over "Mighty Mouse" put a stamp on the division We talk about his scraps with Scott Jorgenson, and Ivan Menjivar, and how it felt to move into the biggest organisation in the World
His amateur boxing career comes up, and leads to a fascinating technical breakdown of how to generate striking power; truly a gift to any fighter listening in.
To me the most impressive component of Brad's arsenal was his Mental strength; we deep dive into what it takes to become exceptional, and the importance of what Brad calls "Winning when you're losing"
