After a day off, MMAWeekly Radio returns with a stacked show for Thursday with guests including Tarec Saffiedine, Michael Chandler, Rick Hawn and Javier Vazquez.

Tarec Saffiedine joins us to talk about his big win last weekend over Nate Marquardt, and his hopes for a bright future in the UFC.

Bellator champion Michael Chandler and challenger Rick Hawn stop by to talk about their title fight tonight, and the expectations of being on Spike TV.
