As the sport of Mixed Martial Arts continues to grow, so does the number of podcasts covering it.
While that’s undoubtedly a good thing, the fact that pretty much anybody can start one up means that the quality can vary dramatically between them.
To help you sort out the wheat from the chaff I’ve listened to as many MMA podcasts as I could lay my hands on, and whittled them down to 10 that I think are worth a listen.
Update: It’s been a couple of years since I first wrote this article and there’s been a few changes over that period as some of the original entries are now defunct, while other frankly better podcasts have emerged in their place. Read on to discover the all-new top 10!
