The Hammer MMA Radio - Episode 310

We begin this week's episode by previewing the seventh UFC event in the last thirty one days. While UFC Fight Night: Rodriguez vs. Cacares isn't the highest profile UFC show, there are three Featherweight fights (Yair Rodriguez vs. Alex Caceres, Dennis Bermudez vs. Rony Jason, and Cub Swanson vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri) that give us more than enough to discuss.
