BELOW THE BELT with Brendan Schaub: Episode 1

Showtime Sports releases its first installment of its new digital talk show series.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Want to hear Brendan Schaub talk about boxing? I don’t, but maybe you do.

In Showtime’s grand release of its new digital series, a bi-monthly talk show hosted by the former MMA fighter, Schaub previews this weekend’s heavyweight title fight between Deontay Wilder and Luis Ortiz alongside Paulie Malignaggi. The two apparently developed some kind of rapport while covering Mayweather-McGregor last summer.

Schaub also interviews UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar who will be taking on Brian Ortega this weekend on UFC 222.

The show is billed as covering the latest news in combat sports and pop culture as a multi-platform program — complete with road trips, fight camp visits, sketches, animation and pop-culture spoofs. The opening intro was particularly terrible, but maybe the substantive content is much better. I couldn’t tell you, I was unable to make it through the first two minutes.

Anyway, here’s some good ol’ content for ya! Enjoy!
