Gray Maynard joins the show to talk about his desire to fight the winner of Benson Henderson vs. Nate Diaz, as well as a coaching spot on the Ultimate Fighter. Max Holloway drops by as well to talk about his win over Justin Lawrence and his growth as a fighter at only 20-years of age in the UFC.
The debate topics cover a lot of different subjects today as well including:
- Jon Jones says he could be ready to test heavyweight by 2013. Like the move, love the move or hate the move?
- Chael Sonnen says Dan Henderson is the greatest pound for pound fighter of all time. Does he have a point?
- Ronda Rousey’s team says they want extensive drug testing involved if they ever fight Cris Cyborg. Should fight teams be able to make these kinds of demands for fights to happen?
- Spike TV signs a deal with K-1. Will American fans buy into kickboxing the way they did MMA?
