We're on the way to Halifax to cover the first ever UFC event in Eastern Canada, UFC Fight Night: MacDonald vs. Saffiedine.  Since we will be on the road, this week's episode is up a couple of days early. UFC Fight Night: Nelson vs. Story from Sweden also takes place the same morning, so we preview that card as well. 

There's also big news coming out of last weekend's UFC 178: Johnson vs. Cariaso. We break down the Flyweight Championship fight, the ascension of Conor MacGregor, the debut of Eddie Alvarez, and the successful respective returns of Dominick Cruz and Cat Zingano.  

We'll be posting new shows throughout the week on our podcast feed following the various media events in Halifax.  .

This week we are joined by Last Word On Sports writer Aaron Robbins to discuss roughly one million recent MMA events.  First up we preview the upcoming UFC Fight Night: Bigfoot vs. Arlovski show from Brazil. 

Following that we look back at last weekend's head-to-head UFC and Bellator shows. While there were great fights and some intriguing future matchups coming out of those shows, we had a hard time focusing on anything but the insane video packages, mysterious masked-men, and overall confusion coming out of Bellator 123.

Finally, we hit a bit of other news including the upcoming World Series of Fighting event, and Thiago Silva's return to UFC following some pretty intense legal issues.

This week Rob is joined by Steve Jeffery, host of the regular weekly edition of The Hammer MMA Radio. They discuss the breaking news of the unfortunate injury to Josh Hill that took him out of the Bantamweight Championship match at next week's World Series of Fighting 13.  

Then Rob breaks down the rest of the week's Canadian MMA news, as well as how UFC Fight Night: MacDonald vs. Saffiedine in Halifax is shaping up.  

Note: This week's episode was recorded and broadcast live in a public courtyard, which is why there's the buzz of people in the background. It won't be a regular thing.
