Brandon Vera - UFC 105UFC light heavyweight Brandon Vera and Titan Fighting’s Braulio Estima join MMAWeekly Radio for Wednesday’s show along with the best debate in the MMA world.

Brandon Vera will discuss his fight with Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua at UFC on Fox 4 as well as his hope to build on the performance as he continues on with his UFC career. After winning multiple Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu championships, Braulio Estima will make his MMA debut this weekend at Titan Fighting 24.

He’ll stop by to talk about why he’s moving to MMA and why now?

Also the debate topics are all new covering the news happening in the MMA world including:

- Dana White says GSP vs. Anderson Silva will ‘probably’ happen if GSP beats Carlos Condit. Is this the biggest fight in MMA history if it happens?
- Frankie Edgar will officially move down to featherweight. Do you like the move, love the move or hate the move?
- Miguel Torres was released from the UFC after his loss in May. Did the UFC make a mistake releasing Torres?
- Dana White is ‘warming up’ to the idea of women’s MMA. Which would you rather see in the UFC…a women’s division or a 115lb division?
