MMAWeekly Radio Wednesday: Danny Castillo, Aaron Simpson and Mike Pierce


Danny Castillo WEC 39A trio of UFC on FX 5 fighters join MMAWeekly Radio today as Danny Castillo, Aaron Simpson and Mike Pierce stop by as well as more of the best debate in all of MMA.

Danny Castillo will drop by to talk about his fight coming up with Michael Johnson, as well as the layoff and situation that surrounded the cancellation of UFC 151.

Aaron Simpson gives insight into his all Vegan diet, while Mike Pierce talks about wrestler vs. wrestler in his upcoming match-up at UFC on FX 5 against Simpson.

The debate on today’s show touches on several subjects including:

- ESPN’s 30 for 30 film ‘Broke’ looks at financial struggles for athletes after competing is over and Chris Leben recently admitted he is ‘flat broke’. Will this issue haunt MMA down the road?
- Frank Shamrock says Zuffa is ‘plucking the soul’ out of Strikeforce. How do you view Strikeforce under Zuffa ownership?
- Invicta FC and World Series of Fighting both have big shows coming up. Who is more likely to have long-term success?
