Matt Mitrione at UFC 119MMAWeekly Radio returns for Monday’s show with TUF Finale fighters Matt Mitrione and James Head as well as plenty of debate following the fallout from UFC on Fox 5.

Matt Mitrione stays with us for almost 30 minutes today to talk about why he took the short notice fight against Roy Nelson, why he didn’t fight Daniel Cormier, and his opinion of VADA and drug testing in MMA.

James Head also stops by to talk about his upcoming fight against Mike Pyle, and how the move to welterweight is like a all new start to his career.

Finally the debate heats up as we dissect UFC on Fox 5:

- Did Benson Henderson silence all of the critics with his performance at UFC on Fox 5?

- Who should get the next shot at the lightweight title – Anthony Pettis or Gilbert Melendez?

- Should B.J. Penn or Mauricio “Shogun” Rua retire from MMA?

This is MMAWeekly Radio for Monday, December 10
