The Hammer MMA Radio

It was looking like a quiet fight week, right up until a handful of current and former UFC fighters announced a Class Action Lawsuit against the UFC this past Tuesday. While it's still early in the process, we spend the first part of this week's show discussing some of the allegtions.

Following that we look to Brazil for this weekend's UFC Fight Night: Machida vs. Dollaway, a fun event that also includes Canadian Bantamweight Mitch Gagnon challenging the former contender Renan Barao.

Finally, we analyze the results of last weekend's The Ultimate Fighter 20 Finale, and UFC On Fox: Dos Santos vs. Miocic.

Then we take a look back at last weekend's excellent UFC 181: Hendricks vs. Lawler 2 card, which was a night full of great fights, two Championship matches, a new Welterweight Champion, and the controversial announcement of former WWE wrestler CM Punk coming to the UFC that seems to have overshadowed everything else.

Finally, we try to squeeze in results from Invicta FC 10 show, including the Women's Atomweight title change.

UFC 181: Hendricks vs. Lawler 2 is this weekend featuring Johny Hendricks vs. Robbie Lawler for the UFC Welterweight Championship, and Anthony Pettis vs. Gilbert Melendez for the UFC Lightweight Championship.

As it's a rare weekend with no upcoming UFC or Bellator events, we spend some time this episode discussing the current state of the major MMA promotions.  We touch on the growing competition between UFC and Bellator, the volume and presentation of televised fight cards, possible market oversaturation, and more.

Then we get into more of the week's news including newly signed UFC fights, the Roufusport controversy, and Vitor Belfort passing his first random drug test leading up to his UFC Middleweight Championship fight.

Finally we take a look back at last weekend's UFC Fight Night: Edgar vs. Swanson, a night in which Frankie Edgar made a statement, Bobby Green confused us, and Paige Van Zant quietly stole the entire show.
