UFC 144's Ryan Bader stops by to talk about his win over Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson as well as what he’d like to do next in the light heavyweight division.
Also on the show, 2012 NCAA champion wrestler Logan Stieber talks about his win over Jordan Oliver, as well as answering the question about if he has any interest in doing MMA in the future.
The debate in the Sixth Round also features new topics:
• UFC 149 is headed to Calgary with Jose Aldo as the headliner. Who should face Aldo on the card?
• Silva vs. Sonnen 2 appears to finally be close to official. Will this be the biggest rematch in UFC history?
• UFC going to Canada 6 times in the next 2 years and they are doing a soccer stadium show in Brazil. Bigger market for the UFC…Canada or Brazil?
• Better super fight GSP vs. Silva or Silva vs Jon Jones?
