Daniel Straus will stop by to talk about his fight this weekend with Alvin Robinson, while also telling why he decided to fight when he has a title shot earned sitting in his back pocket.
Felice Herrig talks to us about her grudge match against Michele Gutierrez coming up in Bellator, and why the two former friends are now bitter enemies.
Featherweight prospect Kurt Holobaugh also joins the show to talk about his upcoming fight, and what it’s going to take to get on the radar of UFC matchmakers Joe Silva and Sean Shelby.
Finally today’s debate lands on women’s MMA coming to the UFC, Alistair Overeem and MMA’s return to Japan:
- Dana White is now “committed” to bringing women’s MMA to the UFC. Why do you think he’s had a change of heart?
- How soon do you believe Ronda Rousey could headline a UFC pay-per-view?
- Alistair Overeem wants to get licensed and fight right away even if it means not getting a title shot. Good move or bad move?
- DREAM will return with New Year’s Eve show. Is this a good sign or bad sign for the future of MMA in Japan?
