The debate topics on today’s show include:
- Frank Mir received a therapeutic use exemption for TRT prior to UFC 146. Does TRT taint a fighter’s legacy in the long run even though it’s legal to use it?
- UFC 147 has received very little fan fare thus far. Should this be a PPV card or put on free TV?
- Rate your interest level in the rematch between Rich Franklin and Wanderlei Silva on a scale of 1-10?
- Brett Rogers signs with Bellator. Good move or bad move on their part?
