EDWARDSVILLE, Ill., June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Champion fighters Ben Askren and Joe Warren have been tapped as Sean Wheelock's new co-hosts for one of the top MMA podcasts online. The show, formerly known as 'Let's Get It On', will now be dubbed 'Lineup MMA' and will be available at LineupMMA.com along with iTunes, Google Play, and all major podcast outlets. Since its infancy, famed referee 'Big' John McCarthy anchored the show alongside Wheelock. McCarthy, who recently moved to Las Vegas to take-on a more rigorous refereeing and judging workload, announced he would be leaving earlier this month.
According to Wheelock, "Big John will remain an executive producer of the podcast and we're both really excited about Ben and Joe coming on board; the stories we'll cover, you're not going to hear on the cookie-cutter MMA shows." Both Askren and Warren are known to be very outspoken, often providing controversial commentary about other fighters and promotions. Askren is the former Bellator welterweight champion and the current ONE Championship 170lb champ. Warren is a former two-division Bellator champion, with titles at both featherweight and bantamweight.
The show, produced by LineupMedia.fm, has consistently been amongst the most-listened-to MMA podcasts online. "I am really excited about joining the podcast with Sean and Joe. We've all known each other for many years, and have a very natural chemistry," said Askren. The trio developed a relationship during their time at Bellator and have remained friends ever-since. Warren continued, "We are going to talk about stuff on this show that no one else will touch, and provide insight on topics that only fighters can know. It's going to be a blast."
The podcast launches Friday, June 3rd, and will be available at LineupMMA.com, along with iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, Podbean and LineupMedia.fm.
