On this week's show, we take another look at the world of MMA. During the Bellator 158 MMA event in London, Evangelista "Cyborg" Santos suffered a sudden defeat against his opponent, Michael Page via a well placed knee strike. The ending of that bout gained lots of news coverage, mostly due to the way that Page celebrated the victory. But it wasn't until news broke of the severity of Santos' head injury did people react in a different way.
We also talk about the news of Brock Lesnar failing two drug tests, one test before UFC 200, the other one immediately after the UFC event. What Lesnar failed for has not been revealed. But Lesnar himself claims, "We will get to the bottom of this." It has yet to be announced if this will affect his return to the WWE for his upcoming match at Summer Slam 2016. For us, it brings up the discussion of Performance Enhancing Drugs(PEDs) and how they have impacted the world sports and competition.
The latest entry into the "Horrible Events in History" file comes in the form of the Dyatlov Pass Incident. Doug brings us the story of nine ski hikers in the Ural Mountains on February 2, 1959.
