Former UFC champion Frankie Edgar joins MMAWeekly Radio for Monday’s show as well as debate surrounding all the events up to and after UFC 151 was canceled last week.

Frankie Edgar stops by to discuss his move to the featherweight division and if his time at 155lbs is officially over.

The debate portion of the show today features topics surrounding UFC 151's cancellation including:

- Jon Jones responds and says he will take the full blame for UFC 151's cancellation. Should Jones take the brunt of the blame for this happening?
- The UFC opts to put Vitor Belfort in against Jon Jones at UFC 152 after Lyoto Machida turns the fight down. Good move or bad move?
- Should Lyoto Machida receive more criticism for turning down the UFC 152 bout against Jon Jones?
- Should the other fighters that didn’t get to fight at UFC 151 be aiming their anger directly at Jon Jones or should it be aimed at the UFC?

This is MMAWeekly Radio for Monday, August 27
