In addition, he has practiced martial arts for a very long period and has earned black belts in both Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Taekwondo. Therefore, it makes sense that he would have a ton of workout-related stories to tell about it. In a recent episode, the UFC commentator shared one such tale with Stavros Halkias, a fellow stand-up comedian who was the guest on the podcast. The UFC commentator shared his workout with the multifaceted personality, Action Bronson.
