MMAWeekly Radio returns for Wednesday’s show with UFC on Fuel fighter Stipe Miocic, UFC on FX’s Ian McCall, Ken Pavia and lots of debate about the proposed Condit vs. Diaz rematch.
Stipe Miocic talks to the radio show about his upcoming fight against Phil De Fries and how he dreams of one day meeting one of his idols, Mirko Cro Cop.
Ian McCall joins the show to discuss his fight coming up with Demetrious Johnson and finally getting his shot in the UFC.
Ken Pavia talks about his role in the new Super Fight League, how MMA is perceived in India, and reaction to recent comments by UFC President Dana White.
The debate topics today focus a lot around the recent reports about a possible Condit vs. Diaz rematch:
- Carlos Condit and Nick Diaz have agreed in principle to a rematch. Good idea or bad idea?
- Does this set a precedent when it comes to agreeing or disagreeing with a decision regarding a rematch?
- How does a rematch between Condit and Diaz go?
- Both Renan Barao and Dustin Poirier won at UFC 143. Who do you believe will get a title shot first?
- Ben Askren will face Douglas Lima in April. How good of a prospect is Askren? Should he consider a move to the UFC?
- UFC on FX 2 and Strikeforce: Tate vs. Rousey same weekend…good idea or bad idea?
