MMAjunkie.com Radio (noon ET): UFC 152's Swanson and Brenneman; Rob Cardenas
MMAjunkie.com Radio today welcomes to the show Bellator featherweight champion Pat Curran, the UFC’s Darren Elkins and Keith Wisniewski, and MMAjunkie.com assistant MMA editor Matt Erickson.
Elkins had a five-fight win streak snapped against Chad Mendes in a short-notice fight in April, but looks to get back on track later this month in his home state of Indiana against Hatsu Hioki at UFC Fight Night 27. Wisniewski, who helps train and corner Elkins, will make a long-awaited return soon, as well, when he fights Marcelo Guimaraes at UFC Fight Night 28 in Brazil. And Erickson will help recap some of the biggest news in the sport of late, including this past weekend’s UFC 163, the upcoming UFC Fight Night 26 and Bellator’s first pay-per-view. Plus, as always, we’ll take calls from Junkie Nation.
