We’ve entered triple digits! This is the 100th episode of Wise Kracks! To celebrate, we have a fantastic guest on the show and tons of controversy to talk about. Let’s dig in! My cohost, Jon Orlando, and I discuss Joe Maddon’s rally mohawk that was never seen… because he was fired.
We also talk about what it would take for Ronda Rousey to return to the ring. Here’s a hint, it’s not money – it’s a specific opponent. Rousey has sung her praises in the past and almost had a super fight lined up with her. Keep thinking and then scroll down for the answer and to learn more!
Floyd Mayweather is back… Kind of?
He’s fighting Mikuru Asakura, a Japanese MMA fighter. We discuss if people are even still intrigued by Mayweather’s antics. To celebrate the 100th episode of the show, we are joined by Cayce Kerr. Kerr talks about life as a caddy on the tour, whether or not the LIV Tour will last, and more!
Ronda Rousey Could Return To MMA… If Gina Carano Comes Too
Ronda Rousey hasn’t competed in MMA since 2016 when she took on Amanda Nunes at UFC 207. Since then, she’s had a successful professional wrestling career and seems quite happy living that life.
However, she’s completely open to making her return to the octagon… as long as she fights Gina Carano. Rousey was recently on the Kurt Angle Show and said
“There’s only one person I would come back for. I’ve said it a million times. It’s not like it’s something new. I’d come back for Gina Carano. She’s the reason why I got into fighting. She’s the reason why I knew it was a possibility. I will always be forever grateful. If she ever was like, ‘Ronda, I want to fight you tomorrow at 205 pounds’ – like, whatever the hell she’d want.”
Rousey is not only willing to make her requested weight class but was also open to the idea of having it in a non-traditional setting.
“If she wanted to come into my backyard and do the Rocky thing, and we just do it in the backyard, I don’t care. I will fight Gina wherever she wants. And if she doesn’t want to, forever, I will leave that offer there. It’s a respect thing.”
What do you think? Should Carano entertain the offer?
Cayce Kerr Shares What Life is Like as a Caddy on the PGA Tour
Cayce Kerr comes back to the show at such an appropriate time with golf dominating the news. If you caught the show last week, we talked about the impact of the LIV Tour. This week, they get a voice from inside the PGA Tour on what’s happening.
One of the hottest topics has to do with the livelihood of caddies and whether or not they’d be allowed to go to the LIV Tour in any capacity.
“I think they have their plate full currently. I can’t see that being an issue at the moment. But, as a good attorney would say, there’s only two words to answer. We’ll see! They’ve got their plates full with the players.”
Cayce also discusses whether or not he thinks the LIV Tour will last and if any other players will leave the PGA Tour.
