The Hammer MMA Radio - Episode 339

Former UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre is finally returning to the UFC, and while that is obviously big news, we just can't help but start this week's episode discussing Derrick "The Black Beast" Lewis and his knockout victory over Travis Browne at UFC Fight Night: Lewis vs. Browne.

In the second half of the show we do indeed get to the impending return of Georges St. Pierre, as well as the rest of the week in MMA including the cancellation of Fedor Emelianenko vs. Matt Mitrione at Bellator 172, Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino's USADA exemption, the announcement of The Ultimate Fighter: Redemption, and the most recent round of fighters who were not re-signed to UFC contracts.

Hosted by Steve Jeffery, David Abraham and Greg Persson.

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.
