In this weekly podcast, MMA journalist Fernanda Prates will provide her unfiltered opinions on MMA-related matters and discussions, beyond the sport’s day-to-day headlines. Fernanda will respond to the "keyboard-warriors" and "mansplainers" she encounters on a daily basis on social media, from the vantage point of a female writer in a predominantly male sport. And, she'll maintain a sense of humor and a playful approach to the oftentimes serious topics covered in the world of mixed martial arts.
