Bas Rutten on Rogan's podcast [Pride related]

It was a good show, but probably could have been better if they had agreed on which topics they were going to discuss as opposed to going off the cuff. Bas could be a little hard to draw into a lengthly discussion.

Joe brought up the old days of Pride and asked what it was like being there seeing the best fights up to that point in mma. Here are some highlights:

- Mark Coleman v Takada was a worked fight, down to the minute and how Takada would win

- He confirmed fighters would get paid in cash backstage/Yakuza involvement

- Rampage had to be bailed out of jail before he fought Sakuraba

- He almost fought W. Silva on the 2000GP show, he wanted K-1 rules with mma gloves, but was turned down

- He would've comeback to fight SHamrock in Pride, and asked for him, but Shamrock turned down the fight

There were other cool stories about his bouncing days, fighting five bouncers, jail and other stuff.

btw, my 'friend' doesn't know how to copy a podcast into his ipod, can you guys help him out?

I've heard the story of Rutten sending multiple bouncers to the hospital. Bas was a bad mofo.

I don't even know where Rogan's podcast is. Can't help without knowing what it is.

Haha. I know iTunes, I just don't use it at all.

Been a member of the Rogan board for quite some time. A lot of cool people on it and interesting discussions without loads of trolls. Anyway:

Bas will be back on the podcast soon since he lives and his gym is located in LA where Rogan lives.
