Welcome to The Fuller Fight Factor LIVE, a semi-periodical show focusing on the world of combat sports, health, fitness and overall awesomeness. In this special edition, host Justin Fuller is joined by Matt “Gutter” Van Buren.

Van Buren is a professional mixed martial arts fighter who is a veteran of Bellator and is scheduled to appear in the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter as a light heavyweight. The season debuts April 16 on Fox Sports 1. Van Buren is originally from Chesapeake, Va., and spent most of his career at Hybrid Training Center in Virginia Beach, Va., before moving to Southern California and joining Alliance MMA, where he trains with Brandon Vera, Phil Davis and Dominic Cruz, among others.

As is the case with The Fuller Fight Factor LIVE, there is never a scheduled agenda or list of topics. However, this episode focused primarily on “Gutter’s” time in Bellator, his training at Alliance MMA and, without revealing any spoilers, the upcoming season of The Ultimate Fighter, which will be coached by former UFC champions B.J. Penn and Frankie Edgar. This show is for entertainment purposes only, and the comments or opinions expressed here are those of their respective contributors and do not necessarily represent those of Justin Fuller, The Fuller Fight Factor or The MMA Corner.
