On the latest episode of Majority Draw Radio, hosts Ryan McKinnell and Danny Acosta draw the Georges St-Pierre-Michael Phelps comparison, speculate on what Gina Carano talks stalling might suggest, try to make sense of Chael Sonnen competing in Metamoris, and relate Scott Coker’s Bellator 2.0 to the timing of the UFC’s lower-end pay-per-view buy rate for UFC 174.

Featherweight contender Jeremy Stephens returns to the show, discussing what could be his ticket to gold, a bout versus Cub Swanson. The Alliance MMA member respects Swanson’s hard-scrabble approach, but also has his confidence at an all-time high, ready to go five rounds with the perennial contender based out of Greg Jackson’s MMA.

“I enjoy going into battle and doing something like that,” Stephens told Majority Draw Radio of a pending all-out scrap against Swanson. “If it does go all five rounds, man, it means I’ve given it my best, given it my all, I left it all out there for myself, for my family, for the fans to enjoy two great athletes just going at it.”
