MMAweekly Radio is back for Monday’s show with UFC on Fuel fighters Stefan Struve and TJ Dillashaw as well as plenty of debate in the Sixth Round.

Stefan Struve talks to the radio show about his upcoming fight with Dave Herman, the fighter pay issue, and being exciting vs. fighting smart.

TJ Dillashaw dishes on the lesson learned from his last fight against John Dodson and what to expect from Walel Watson this Wednesday night on Fuel TV.

Finally, Damon, Jeff and Erik break down some of the hot topics during the debate in the Sixth Round:

- Nick Diaz tested positive for marijuana and faces disciplinary action. Reaction?
- With this latest move, do you believe Nick Diaz will return to fighting?
- Two new fights announced for UFC on Fox 3. Which are you more excited about? Koscheck vs Hendricks or Belcher vs. Palhares?
- The formula seems set for the next UFC on Fox 3 card. No huge names, no huge paydays, match-ups look very exciting on paper. Good idea or bad idea for ratings?
- Eddie Alvarez has commented that his future with Bellator is cloudy. Should he pursue a move to the UFC?
- UFC on Fuel 1 happens in a couple of days. Events midweek…love it, like it or hate it?
