Your magic number is five.  That’s the number of guests for the best two hours of Jay Kelly’s week, when he co-hosts MMADieHards Radio with Joe Rizzo.  Find the player above to catch the show live weekly from 8:30-10:30 p.m. ET, 5:30-7:30 PT, and jump into the chat room to enhance your listening experience.  Otherwise, catch the archive right here, or via iTunes or Stitcher.

When it takes until the second paragraph to tell your listeners that the great TOMMY TOE HOLD is on the show, you’ve done something in the industry called “burying the lede.”  Yes, the hottest person (caricature?) in MMA joins the fray.

Ahead of Tommy, whose next video hit around the same time as the live broadcast of MMADieHards Radio ended, are a couple of atomweights to set a torrid pace.  Laura Sanko and Jessica Philippus are both 105-pound fighters in Invicta, and together they make Team Fancy.  You’ll learn the story behind the nickname after the show kicks off with Laura’s Top 10 Reasons To Watch Invicta Instead of the UFC.

Yes, Laura came up with the whole thing herself.

Bruce Hoyer explains what happened when South Dakota Representative Steve Hickey visited his Next Edge Academy in Sioux Falls, along with Invicta’s Shayna Baszler, after Hickey’s controversial remarks comparing MMA to child pornography.  Find out how Hoyer and Baszler responded and what they did to educate their publically elected official.

We close it out by looking ahead to UFC 158 as John Makdessi joins the show.  Makdessi (10-2) is looking for his second straight win in the UFC on March 16 in Montreal, where he takes on Daron Cruickshank in a lightweight match.  John’s appearance mark the continuation of the streak of shows in which Jay has had a Canadian guest.

But this time he is outnumbered by Americans.

*NOTE: Due to technical issues, Jessica’s appearance was limited, and she has agreed to come back on next week, along with Ottavia Bourdain.

Garza tells the story of how he went from one of 28 candidates trying to get into the TUF house to the one who grabbed the bonus dollars in the show’s finale on Not A Women’s MMA Show with Shayna Baszler and Bruce Hoyer on the MMA DieHards Radio Network.
