The debate topics include:
• Shane Carwin retired from MMA this week. What will his lasting legacy be in the sport?
• According to reports, UFC 159 did somewhere in the neighborhood of 520,000 PPV buys. Are those numbers encouraging or discouraging considering the main event?
• Chuck Liddell spoke out recently about fighters playing it safe and not going for the finish. Does Liddell have a point with today’s current crop of fighters?
• UFC developing new gloves to help stop eye pokes. Good move or bad move?
