Demetrious Johnson stops by to talk about his upcoming title defense against John Dodson and what it means to headline a UFC on Fox card for the first time.
Up and comers Tyler King and Brian Camozzi also stop by the show as two young talented fighters, one a former NFL player and the other making his pro MMA debut this weekend.
The best debate in MMA returns with all new topics:
- The news season of the Ultimate Fighter begins tonight – rate your interest and excitement level and will you be watching throughout?
- How important are the ratings for the first couple of episodes to the future of the Ultimate Fighter?
- Fox will rebrand Fuel TV and Speed and move sports programming off FX – is this a big deal or no deal at all for the UFC?
- Bellator peaked with almost 1.2 million viewers for their first show on Spike – encouraging numbers or should we wait to judge?
