#10006 - All In or Knocked Out - Episode 6 "After The Bell"

Author: Two Plus Two Publishing
Sat, Nov 19, 2016


On April 24, 2016, Olivier Busquet pummeled JC Alvarado for 15 minutes, taking $150000 from his bank account, and adding it to his own. Terrence met with both the winner and loser in the days following the fight. As expected, the defeated JC was feeling down and disappointed. But despite being the dominant winner, Olivier had mixed emotions about the fight as well. (Featured guests: Olivier Busquet, JC Alvarado)

#10005 - All In or Knocked Out - Ep 5 "Everyone Gets Their Fifteen Minutes of Pain"

Author: Two Plus Two Publishing
Fri, Jul 29, 2016


Four ounce gloves. Five minute rounds. Punches, kicks, elbows, and knees to everywhere on the opponent's body save the groin, back of the head, and spine. This is what Olivier and JC, two complete novices to the sport of mixed martial arts, have agreed to after six months of training, with a $270000 wager on the line. In Part 5, those six months come to fruition. The poker players turned fighters enter the cage on an April night in Las Vegas, and the result is a violent blood-soaked affair, well beyond the poker community's expectations.

#10004 - All In or Knocked Out - Episode 4 "Ready To Rumble"

Author: Two Plus Two Publishing
Tue, Jul 12, 2016


For decades, Las Vegas has been home to the world’s biggest biggest prize fights. But tonight there are no world champions fighting in Sin City. Instead, two complete beginners put up a combined $270000 to duke it out in a MMA gym located five miles off the Las Vegas Strip. It’s fight day for JC and Olivier, and the big-money bettors start to filter in to witness the spectacle in person. We go behind the scenes inside both locker rooms as both sides do their final physical and mental preparation, and as the starting bell sounds, the poker community holds its collective breath in anticipation.

#10003 - All In or Knocked Out - Episode 3 "Arriving in Vegas"

Author: Two Plus Two Publishing
Thu, May 19, 2016


It’s 24 hours until fight time. The bets have start pouring in from the poker community and are coming in nearly equally on both sides. One fighter starts to see the fight as “50/50”, while the other thinks he’s a big favourite. The coaches from both sides have arrived in Las Vegas and are feeling good about their fighters — so good that it’s almost implausible. We check in with both fighters to see how they are doing mentally and physically. Both men are going into the fight confident, but both acknowledge the potential to lose. Is this fight about the process, or the result? (Featured guests: Olivier Busquet, JC Alvarado)

#10002 - All In or Knocked Out - Episode 2 "Seek Discipline and Find Your Liberty"

Author: Two Plus Two Publishing
Tue, May 3, 2016


As Olivier and JC approach fight day, we take a look back the early days of their poker careers and exactly how they became the high-stakes pros they are today. Both men start feeling the physical and psychological strains of the training camp. Finally, JC drops a serious allegation, and tempers flare as things start to get personal.

#10001 - All In or Knocked Out - Episode 1 "The Tweet"

Author: Two Plus Two Publishing
Wed, Apr 27, 2016


In the premiere episode of All In Or Knocked Out, we meet professional poker players Olivier Busquet and JC Alvarado. Olivier and JC became the talk of the poker world in late 2015 when the two agreed to a high-stakes bet not on the felt, but rather in the mixed martial arts cage. Neither man had any formal experience in MMA, but that didn’t stop them from putting up a staggering $270000 to see who would come out on top. In this first episode, we talk about Olivier’s rowdy college days and his idea to challenge the poker world to an MMA fight. We explore JC’s rough upbringing in Mexico and how his love for the martial arts blossomed. Finally, the bet comes together and the two men begin training for their imminent showdown. Check out allinorknockedout.com for updates, future episodes, and more information about the series. www.allinorknockedout.com Special thanks to Angus Lee aka Murphy Chops for the music.
