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.

Due to a live scheduling issue this week's episode is up a few days early. It's also a longer show than usual and the first half covers the results of this past weekend's cursed, but actually pretty solid, UFC 177: Dillashaw vs. Soto Pay Per View.

Later in the show we preview three upcoming fight cards all taking place on the same weekend including UFC Fight Night: Jacare vs. Mousasi, Bellator 123, and Invicta FC 8, as well as cover some recent general MMA news.

Following weeks of mainstream hype, the Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier fight at UFC 178 has been delayed until 2015. We spend some time figuring out what impact this will have on the next few UFC cards (and it doesn't look good). There's also a bunch of other news including a rumored play for Gina Carano by Bellator, and War Machine being on the run yet again.

Also the UFC returns this Saturday night for the first time in three weeks. We preview all of the fights on the UFC Fight Night: Bader vs. St. Preux card, including some serious must-win matchups for established fighters like Gray Maynard and Tim Boetsch.
