UFC lightweight king Benson Henderson stops by to talk about his year in 2012 and his award as MMAWeekly.com’s Fighter of the Year. Henderson will also tell what was his favorite highlight of the past 12 months.
Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney will also drop by to preview their upcoming debut on Spike TV, what to expect this year, and updates on Eddie Alvarez and Paul Daley.
Finally the best debate in MMA returns with all new topics including:
- Did Cain Velasquez prove his first fight with Junior Dos Santos was a fluke with his performance at UFC 155?
- What’s more interesting now – a trilogy with Velasquez and Dos Santos or Velasquez vs. Overeem?
- Ticket sales have been slow thus far for Ronda Rousey’s debut. Does this speak to her overall selling power or something else?
- What fight are you most looking forward to in January?
