Rich Franklin at UFC 115UFC on Fuel headliner Rich Franklin and Bellator champion Zoila Gurgel highlight Monday’s edition of MMAWeekly Radio as well as all new debate topics.

Heading into yet another UFC main event, Rich Franklin talks to us today about many subjects including his willingness to step up for the promotion whenever they need him, and if he believes he’s going to get back into the running for another shot at Anderson Silva.

Bellator women’s champ Zoila Gurgel returns this weekend after more than a year away after suffering a major knee injury. Today, Gurgel talks about her return to action and her feelings on being placed on the Bellator prelims for this weekend’s card.

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

- Following the “fans want this fight” idea, should Nick Diaz face Georges St-Pierre when he returns from suspension?

- Zoila Gurgel on the prelims for her return fight at Bellator 78. Fair or foul move from Bellator?

- Does Miesha Tate have a point that it’s a “sexist” move for Gurgel to be on the prelims?

- Of all the fights announced over the weekend, what one intrigues you the most?
