UFC Fight Night: Rodriguez vs Penn is in the books, and UFC legend B.J. Penn went down hard to the up-and-coming Yair Rodriguez. We begin this episode by recapping all of the results from that event.

In the second half of the show we discuss last weekend's Invicta FC 21: Anderson vs. Tweet, the upcoming Bellator 170: Ortiz vs. Sonnen, Mark Hunt's lawsuit, and the announcement of yet another UFC Interim Championship.

The Hammer MMA Radio - Episode 333

The UFC will be returning for it's first show of 2017 with UFC Fight Night: Rodriguez vs. Penn on Sunday, January 15th. This will be the long-promised return of BJ Penn, and this episode we preview all of the fights on the card. Some more in-depth than others.

This will also be the first UFC event to feature the 2017 changes to the MMA rules and judging systems, so we try to make sense of the changes in the second half of the episode, as well as previewing the
upcoming Invicta FC 21: Anderson vs. Tweet.
