UFC 152 co-main event fighter Demetrious Johnson and Evan Dunham highlight today’s radio show along with plenty of debate about the injuries that caused UFC 153 to crumble yesterday.
Demetrious Johnson stops by to discuss his fight with Joseph Benavidez at UFC 152, as well as answering if he likes playing the underdog role in fights.
Evan Dunham will talk about his upcoming fight at UFC 152, the recent rash of injuries, and if he was disappointed that his fight got bumped off the main card onto the prelims.
Finally, the debate topics heat up on today’s show primarily discussing the UFC 153 news from Tuesday:
- In the wake of injuries to both Jose Aldo and Rampage Jackson, what should the UFC do about the now lacking UFC 153 card in Brazil?
- Should Frankie Edgar stay on the UFC 153 card or opt out all together?
- What do you believe is the biggest cause for the injury plague of 2012?
- Jon Jones says he’s not going to embrace the villain role and is ‘the nicest guy in the world’. Is Jones being treated unfairly right now?
