Packed schedule this time around, with two events to recap, one to preview and a host of headlines and other news items to cover. Thanks for joining in!

In the first segment, I recap UFC: Fight for the Troops 3 and UFC Fight Night: Belfort vs. Henderson—a couple of fantastic fight cards, even if they didn’t look like much on paper. I’ll also preview this weekend’s UFC 167 event, which is chock-full of exciting contests, not to mention a UFC welterweight title fight. In the second portion, I cover some recent news items in and out of the cage before wrapping things up in the third segment with a look back at Dale de Souza’s An Ultimate History.

What does Tim Kennedy’s win over Rafael Natal do for his career prospects? Where should Alexis Davis end up in the women’s bantamweight mix after defeating former title contender Liz Carmouche? And how many more fights can we expect Yoel Romero to dominate like he has thus far in his brief MMA career?

Which famous UFC knockout was relived (in a way) during last Saturday’s card? Which welterweight fighter should have every UFC fan’s attention? What’s next for Dan Henderson now that he’s lost three straight and is a UFC free agent? What are Vitor Belfort’s title-contention chances at this stage of the game?

I’ll answer all of these questions and delve into a range of other newsworthy topics, like the Newark Star-Ledger’s recent series about MMA, Vitor Belfort’s use of TRT and the UFC’s role in its continuation and the NFL’s current locker-room scandal involving members of the Miami Dolphins.

Thanks for listening!
