Welcome to The White Belt MMA Podcast, a weekly look at the biggest topics in the MMA world.

On this episode, we review the very controversial UFC 167 main event, as well as the other fights on the main card, before touching on a few headlines and highlights from the world of MMA and wrapping up our discussion of Dale De Souza’s outstanding series, An Ultimate History.

How did I score St-Pierre/Hendricks, and which round was maybe not as decisive as some initially thought? What’s next for Robbie Lawler after his defeat of Rory MacDonald, and where do Johny Hendricks, Carlos Condit and Matt Brown fit in? When, if ever, will Rashad Evans get another chance at the UFC light heavyweight belt, and what does the loss on Saturday night mean for Chael Sonnen? Tyron Woodley looked explosive in his knockout victory over Josh Koscheck, but is there a way other UFC welterweight fighters could circumvent his dangerous striking?

Ben Askren is now a free agent in the world of MMA. Will the UFC end up signing him, and if so, why the initial cold shoulder from UFC President Dana White? The UFC announced last week that it was introducing the women’s strawweight division to its offerings. Why is this actually the best division to arrive next for female fighters and the UFC alike?

I’ll answer all of these questions, and much more, on this edition of the White Belt MMA Podcast. As always, follow the podcast on Twitter @mmapodcast and look for past episodes on The MMA Corner and iTunes.
