UFC 161 fighter Roy Nelson and World Series of Fighting’s Josh Burkman join Tuesday’s MMA’s Great Debate Radio show, and there should be plenty of debate surrounding UFC on Fuel 10 and Bellator’s new night for programming.
Today’s debate topics include:
• Fabricio Werdum said he wants to wait until after Velasquez vs. dos Santos 3 to decide what’s next. Good move or bad move?
• Thiago Silva knocks out Rafael Feijao: are you buying him as a legit Top 10 fighter now?
• Bellator will shift programming to Friday nights in September. Will they be as successful on the new night?
• Jose Aldo says with a win over Anthony Pettis he will move to 155 to challenge for the title there. Do you agree or disagree with that decision?
