MMAWeekly Radio Thursday: Tim Boetsch, Gilbert Melendez and Derek Brunson


Thursday’s edition of MMAWeekly Radio welcomes UFC 155 fighter Tim Boetsch, Strikeforce champion Gilbert Melendez, and new UFC fighter Derek Brunson.

Tim Boetsch talks about the disappointment of not facing Chris Weidman, and how he plans on earning a middleweight title shot.

Gilbert Melendez updates everyone on his shoulder injury and who he hopes to face in his UFC debut. Finally, Derek Brunson discusses his short notice fight against Chris Leben at UFC 155.

And MMAWeekly Radio is where debate happens with all new topics on today’s show:

- Robbie Lawler returns to the UFC against Josh Koscheck but which non-champion from Strikeforce will have the best success in the Octagon?

- Junior Dos Santos says he wants fighters built in the gym, not the laboratory when speaking about Alistair Overeem. Would a Dos Santos/Overeem fight be the biggest heavyweight fight in history?

- What is the one fight we didn’t get to see in 2012 that you wish had happened?

This is MMAWeekly Radio for Thursday, December 20
