“Let me just say one thing, he got a squad, I call them the MMA pies, they a bunch of pies, they going in the oven. Now let me just say this, we got tentatively, right now I’m in talks with, and thanks to this big a** fool, we got Big Country Roy Nelson vs the Nigerian Nightmare, Samuel Peter.”

“We got Big Bob Sapp, thanks to this pie face, vs Big Baby Miller. Two nights, two fights, each fight, we gotta fight em in the ring, and then we gotta fight em in the cage.” Shannon Briggs confirmed on the podcast.

The most bizarre thing about this fight will be the fact that the fighters will face each other in the boxing ring first, and then the MMA cage. In a never-before-seen event, both Rampage and Briggs are trying to prove that their combat sport is better than the others.

It will be interesting to watch the former UFC Light Heavyweight champion, dubbed as one of the best strikers in MMA by Bruce Buffer himself, take on the former Lineal heavyweight champion of the world.
