The new Bloody Elbow Podcast starts now

As step 1 of that process, we launched the Bloody Elbow newsletter on Substack.

Step 2 begins today with the relaunch of the Bloody Elbow Podcast Network (formerly the BE Presents Podcast) on its standalone Substack.

We’re maintaining our regular podcast schedule with new episodes of the Care/Don’t Care Preview, The Level Change, The MMA Vivisection, The 6th Round plus special guest appearances like The Show Stomper and Show Money — ALL FREE.

If you’ve been listening to the shows on SoundCloud or YouTube, I’m afraid you’ll need to change your game up a bit and find them in the Bloody Elbow Podcast Substack.

If you’ve been listening on Apple, Spotify, Stitcher, SimpleCast or other popular podcast platforms, the RSS feed should still bring our shows to you through your existing subscription BUT you’ll still want to subscribe here so you can access the bonus content plus receive email notifications of each new episode.

We’re adding SPECIAL BONUS CONTENT to our regular shows ONLY FOR PAID SUBSCRIBERS – including the return of “Kid” Nate Wilcox to the 6th round for special post-fight commentary after the main show and the RETURN OF THE MMA BUNKER.

The MMA bunker was shut down at the request of SB Nation management when Nate’s comments made things too hot for a confident access reporter. That’s no longer our problem and Nate’s MMA commentary returns.

Subscribe today so you don’t miss a single episode, and if you can and want to help fund Bloody Elbow’s transition to the new in April, take the time to become a paid subscriber (or even Founding Member) of the Bloody Elbow Podcast Network Substack.

If you love the Bloody Elbow Podcast, tell your friends to sign up today so they don’t miss a single episode.
