EPISODE DESCRIPTION

Fans have been posting and e-mailing about a new Carson's Corner interview with Charles McCarthy for some time, and Bob Carson delivers the goods with this episode in hall-of-fame fashion!

Bob and Charles spoke shortly before his fight with Michael Bisping all the way back at UFC 83 more than fifty events ago. Since then, a huge amount has changed in the life of The Chainsaw both personally and professionally and this in-depth update will give you all the details on his life after retiring as an active fighter. How has he adjusted to life outside of the cage? How permanent is his decision to step away from fighting, and how often is he tempted back (if ever)? What does he think of other fighters from the early days of the sport now struggling financially due to their inability to adjust to a more normal life? Does he have any advice for others contemplating retirement? Charles shares his experiences and perspective on walking away from fighting the right way.

Chainsaw also has a huge amount of expertise and knowledge as a competitor, trainer and grappler and he shares plenty of it during this discussion. As someone who fought Bisping, what does he think of his old foe's disproportionately criticized foul on Jorge Rivera and subsequent complaints by "Ranger Up" members, and did they cross the line? Would it be fair to call Charles a somewhat sadistic grappler? What does he think of "trolling" on the MMA forums? What about his new Cage Junkies website venture?

There's more in this interview than can possibly fit into this mailout. McCarthy is one of the most thoughtful and discerning athletes associated with the sport of MMA to date - check it out!!
