MMAWeekly Radio returns on Tuesday with Bellator champion Ben Askren, UFC featherweight Tyson Griffin and a full wrap up of UFC 132.

Ben Askren is not a Nate Marquardt fan. At all. And he’ll tell why during his interview with MMAWeekly Radio, while Tyson Griffin discusses his win over Manny Gamburyan and who he wants next at 145lbs in the UFC.

Also UFC 132 goes under the microscope with discussion about several fights on the card including comments from Dominick Cruz, Tito Ortiz, Melvin Guillard and Carlos Condit.

Ben Askren attended a UFC event, and he kept calling out Johny Hendricks while both were at the arena. Ben Askren was in Vegas at a UFC event and was cornering one of his teammates at The Ultimate Fighter 19: Finale.

I blame the wild hogs. Former Bellator welterweight champion and current ONE FC headliner, Ben Askren, was in town over Fourth of July Weekend and made a stop by The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 19 Finale, which took place on July 6, 2014, inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada (results here). And that's about as close to the Octagon as "Funky" can get. That's because the "bald man" was uninterested in signing the talented mat rat, which is unfortunate, considering Askren -- a 2008 Oly more

Ben Askren is one of the finest mixed martial artists on the planet, and his skills are so far only matched by his caustic tongue. The 13-0 fighter is not one to shy away from verbal wars, and he spends his time out of the cage poking and prodding at other fighters and promoters, attempting to stir up some controversy while finding amusement in the resulting chaos. While in attendance at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas for The Ultimate Fighter 19 finale, the current One FC welterweig more

Like Obi Wan said, "Now that's a name I've not heard in a long time..." Mixed martial arts (MMA) fans haven't seen former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) lightweight Roger Huerta for over two years. Probably because it took him that long to wake up from one of the nastiest soccer kicks in the history of the sport (see it again here). But time heals all wounds. The 31-year-old Huerta (21-7-1, 1 NC), just 1-6 over his last seven, has been paired off against undefeated newcomer Christian Holle more
