Anthony Pettis at WEC 48MMAWeekly Radio returns for Tuesday’s show with UFC on Fox fighter Anthony Pettis, Bellator champ Pat Curran and the best debate in all of MMA.

On today’s show, Anthony Pettis talks about the recent rumors surrounding both Gilbert Melendez and Eddie Alvarez getting title shot offers ahead of him, and also tells one of the funniest stories in the history of the show.

Pat Curran stops by as well to talk about his return to action after a long layoff due to injury as well as Bellator’s big move to Spike TV.

Finally all new debate topics on today’s show including:

- Gilbert Melendez will get the next shot at Benson Henderson at UFC on Fox 7. Do you like, love or hate this match-up?

- Strikeforce scores 310,000 viewers for final show on Showtime. Reaction to the ratings?

- Rory MacDonald continues to say he wants to “embarrass” Carlos Condit and he was humiliated in their last fight. Is MacDonald hyping the fight or is this a whole new demeanor for the young Canadian?
