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

On this episode of the podcast, we’ll preview UFC 168, talk about Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva’s positive PED test, discuss an exciting new addition to UFC 171 and go over my 2013 year-end awards.

Will Jim Miller return to his once-vaunted status in the UFC’s lightweight division? Will Josh Barnett come full circle and get another UFC heavyweight title shot, or will Travis Browne realize his full potential at Barnett’s expense? Is Rousey-Tate really the rivalry it’s being made out to be? What will happen in the much-anticipated UFC 168 main event between Chris Weidman and former champion Anderson Silva, and what, if anything, will lure Silva back to the cage after Saturday night?

Is anyone else getting sick of the many layers of garbage comprising the UFC’s relationship with testosterone replacement therapy, and are you really surprised Bigfoot Silva was popped again for pharmaceutical enhancement?

Tyron Woodley has looked like a man possessed in his UFC welterweight run, but what can UFC 171 opponent Carlos Condit do to neutralize Woodley’s many offensive weapons?

Finally, who were my male and female fighters of the year? How about my fight of the year?

We’ll answer these questions, and talk about much more on this episode 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.
