Joseph Benavidez will fight Demetrious Johnson at UFC 152 for the first ever UFC flyweight championship, and today he’ll talk about the match-up as well as a ton of other topics.
The debate heats up on today’s show as well with the following topics being covered:
- Jon Jones tweets out he’s not fighting at UFC 151 because of ‘the old man and his knee’ and also says he’s not fighting to be loved. Does Jones have a point in both messages?
- Jose Aldo suffers minor injuries in a motorcycle crash but will fight at UFC 153. Should the UFC have provisions in contracts to avoid these types of situations?
- Rate your interest level in the heavyweight bout between Daniel Cormier and Frank Mir?
- ONE FC has gone back to the PRIDE style rules for soccer kicks after controversial endings at their last show. Good move or bad move?
