The Hammer MMA Radio

This week we are joined by UFC lightweight "The Quebec Kid" Olivier Aubin-Mercier, coming off of his third straight UFC win last weekend at UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. Oliviera.  Olivier discusses when he'd like to fight next, online criticism to his last fight, his Reebok sponsorship, the videogame he's currently hooked on, and more. 

In addition to Olivier's fight, we also recap the rest of the fights from last weekend's card, including the strange esophagus tear in the main event, and a Fight Of The Night from Patrick Cote and Josh Burkman.

Finally we take a few minutes to discuss some of the week's MMA news including Anthony "Rumble" Johnson's awful Facebook rant, Alexis Davis' pregnancy, and this Friday night's Bellator event headlined by Melvin Guillard and Brandon Girtz.

Hosted by Steve Jeffery, David Abraham and Greg Persson.

The UFC is returning to Canada once again for UFC Fight Night: Holloway vs. Oliviera. This event from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan features a lot of the most promising Canadian UFC fighters, so we've asked The Parting Shot Podcast's Carlin Bardsley to help us preview the entire show from top to bottom.

We also briefly touch on some of the week's strangest MMA news including the latest on Anderson Silva's ridiculous plea to the Nevada Athletic Commission, the return of The Barncat to the UFC, as well as a female fighter who's been unknowingly fighting (and winning) for months while being pregnant.

Hosted by Steve Jeffery, David Abraham and Greg Persson.

This weekend is UFC 190, and the UFC Women's Bantamweight Champion Ronda Rousey takes a break from Hollywood to fly down to Brazil for a good old fashioned grudge match against Bethe Correia.  This is an enormous seven-fight Pay Per View main card, so it takes most of this week's episode to get through it all.  

After the break we return with a quick look at the upcoming World Series of Fighting 22: Palhares vs. Shields event, as well as the highlights from last weekend's UFC On Fox: Dillashaw vs. Barao 2.  

Hosted by Steve Jeffery, Dave Abraham, and Greg Persson.
