MMAWeekly Radio is back for Monday’s show with UFC on Fox 5 fighter Jeremy Stephens, Bellator’s Felice Herrig and the best debate in MMA.

Jeremy Stephens conducts one of the first interviews he’s done since the events surrounding his arrest in October happened, and he talks about the week in Minnesota, and how he finally gets to fight Yves Edwards this weekend.

Also on the show, Felice Herrig addresses the change in her fight in Bellator when opponent Michelle Gutierrez dropped out of the bout due to injury but with some interesting circumstances surrounding it. Find out what Herrig has to say about the entire ordeal.

Finally, the debate heats up on today’s show with all new topics:

- Does Benson Henderson need to have at least a solid unanimous decision win over Nate Diaz to silence the critics of his UFC title reign?

- Michael Bisping says he’s the “unofficial Strikeforce champ” after sparring with Luke Rockhold – should fighters “out” these moments when asked?

- What do you make of the match-ups handed to Josh Barnett and Daniel Cormier for their final fights in Strikeforce?

- Dana White lashes out at fans who didn’t like his portrayal of a homeless person on Fox. Agree or disagree with his stance?

This is MMAWeekly Radio for Monday, December 3
