Episode 39

In this very special episode, we have guests, Dr. Duncan French and Dr. Roman Fomin.  Duncan is the Vice President of the UFC Performance Institute and Roman the Director of Sports Science.

We cover the state of Human Performance and the role the UFC Performance Institute plays in MMA and the progression of sports science in general.  Brian and I also discuss what the heck we were doing there and the interesting projects we have planned with the UFCPI team.

This one is sure to be a nerdfest of epic proportions.
