KingRyanShow-1920x1080.jpg

The King Ryan Show debuted on FloGrappling three weeks ago, with the P4P #1 ranked No-Gi athlete hosting his own talk show twice a week. Gordon has brought in big names from various other fields, with the 3X ADCC champion picking the brains of Georges St-Pierre, Israel Adesanya, C.T. Fletcher, Mario Lopez and his coaches Tom Deblass and Miguel Benitez. I'll give you here a brief rundown of all the action that has gone down so far on The King Ryan Show

Episode One: UFC Legend Georges St-Pierre

Full Episode: TKRS Ep. 1 With Georges St-Pierre

Georges St-Pierre has held the UFC middleweight and welterweight championships, holding the record for the most consecutive title defenses in the welterweight division. The Montreal native has also trained extensively at the Renzo Gracie academy in New York under John Danaher, and is considered a founding member of the Danaher Death Squad. Covered in this episode were GSP's experiences rolling with both Danaher and Gordon, his thoughts on potentially doing grappling superfights, his training regimen and then this hilarious section about his fascination with dinosaurs -

Episode Three: Tom Deblass And Miguel Benitez

Full Episode: TKRS Ep. 3 With Tom Deblass And Miguel Benitez

These guys have literally known Gordon since he walked in the door for his first class, hear all about just how cocky The King was as a teenager. Topics covered include Big Gord getting catfished on Facebook, Gordon's early days as a "jiu-jitsu Kimbo Slice" and this hilarious story about when Tom broke a teenage Gordons leg -

Episode Four: The Last Stylebender Israel Adesanya

Full Episode: TKRS Ep. 4 With Israel Adesanya

The current UFC middleweight champion called in for episode four. We had some connection issues early, the episode kicks off with him jumping in his Mclaren to take a drive and things get good from there. We cover his grappling training, fighting his idol Anderson Silva, Fight Island and he absolutely went off on his rival Jon Jones in this clip -

Episode Five: ISYMFS With C.T. Fletcher

Full Episode: TKRS Ep. 5 With C.T. Fletcher

CT Fletcher is a legend in the weightlifting community, with Gordon being an avid weightlifter himself of course this interview had to happen. We covered why CT respects Gordon's ability to talk trash and back it up, his recovery from dying and having heart replacement surgery, their shared obsession with cars and there is some great weightlifting discussion between CT and The King in this video -
