The Scrap has been on YouTube for a short while now. But it’s going to get a huge, much needed facelift very soon. As we start to focus heavily on YouTube content and creative shows to bring to combat sports fans, make sure you follow The Scrap on YouTube.
Below is what we currently have for content and all the exciting stuff we have planned.
WMMA Today Podcast & The Phantom Punch Breakdown
The only podcast currently on The Scrap is WMMA Today hosted by Drake Riggs and Steve K. The name of the podcast says it all; the guys deep dive on WMMA for the week live on YouTube and interact with fans in the comments.
If you’re a fan on women’s MMA, then the show is must-watch. No one does it better than these two.
James Lynch Interviews
The Scrap has one of the best interviewers in the game on staff in Canada’s James Lynch. He interviews UFC, PFL, Bellator, and regional fighters on a monthly basis and has his own playlist on our YouTube channel.

Creative Content On The Way
More Podcast/YouTube Live Segments
It’s time we interact more with other MMA fans around the world. So we’ll be recruiting and hand-picking the next podcast and YouTube Live segments that debut on our channel. We don’t want the same old that people see on every news outlet, it’s time to bring something new to the table.
There was a point in time where The Scrap only had interviews happening and we lost sight of the creative content. Now, there’s more creative content than ever, so it’s time to balance things out with bringing on more interviewers.
Soon you’ll be seeing more pro wrestling, bare knuckle, and boxing interviews to go with out extensive MMA library.
We love to highlight all of MMA, especially the local scene. So we’ll be investing a portion of The Scrap’s income to making highlight videos for certain fighters/fights so they can use for their own marketing purposes.
There’s nothing like a good highlight video, that’s for sure… And Lessard Productions makes some of the best ones.
Our goal from the start was to be a hub to spotlight those that need it most — regional fighters. With that in mind, we found that fighters need to know more about the ins and outs of the game. Things like understanding the business side of MMA, what questions to ask when they are being recruited, and how to navigate social media/marketing. It’s critical knowledge that often doesn’t get shared, so it’s time to change that.
Yes we want to remain a creative content hub, but we also want to make sure that our readers and fighters get more crucial knowledge of the sport we love. The more knowledge that’s spread, the more we elevate the game over time.
