Anthony Johnson at the TUF 8 FinaleIt’s election day in the U.S. but the debate doesn’t stop on MMAWeekly Radio with all new topics on deck today plus Anthony Johnson and Carla Esparza join us as guests.

Anthony Johnson scored a “Knockout of the Year” candidate with his one-punch shot to put away D.J. Linderman over the weekend, and on today’s show he’ll talk about the knockout, the eye poke and how he felt about Linderman’s corner during that exchange.

Johnson will also talk to us about his desire to fight at heavyweight and a potential bout against Andrei Arlovski.

Invicta title challenger Carla Esparza also joins the show today to discuss her upcoming championship bout at Invicta 4 in January, and what it’s been like to work with the all women’s MMA promotion thus far.

Finally, MMAWeekly Radio is where debate happens and today we have all new topics including:

- Can Jon Jones be as successful at heavyweight as he’s been at light heavyweight?

- Do you believe we will one day see Georges St-Pierre vs. Rory MacDonald?

- Rate your interest level in a potential fight between Anthony Johnson and Andrei Arlovski?

This is MMAWeekly Radio for Tuesday, Nov 6
