This is an extra-long two hour episode that begins with a huge preview of UFC 186. There hasn't been a ton of mainstream interest in this event but we break down the entire card from the UFC Flyweight Championship main event to the Fight Pass exclusive Women's Strawweight fights.

Following that Rob Veevers takes over the middle segment of the show to discuss MMA in Canada, including a likely Titan FC event in June, a Global Warriors event in Ontario next month, and some discussion as to why live MMA has essentially disapeared from the province of Ontario.

Finally we wrap up this massive episode with a full recap of last Saturday night's UFC On Fox: Rockhold vs. Machida, and a preview of Friday night's Invicta FC 12: Kankaanpaa vs. Souza.
