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

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.
