Tonight, MMAWeekly Radio welcomes UFC newcomer James
Lee, who is set to face Alessio Sakara at UFC 80 in England, as well as Manny
Gamburyan, who defeated Nate Mohr in his return to the Octagon at UFC 79. The
action starts at 9pm EST/6pm PST.
James Lee made an impressive debut to many American fans at
the Pride U.S. show in Las Vegas, finishing veteran fighter Travis Wiuff by
guillotine choke in the first round.
While new to UFC fans, Lee has been a mainstay of promotions
like King of the Cage for many years and now he looks to make an impressive
debut in the growing 205-pound weight class taking on new American Top Team
member Alessio Sakara.
Also on the show will be Manny “The Anvil” Gamburyan who
made an impressive return to the UFC after a shoulder injury, defeating Jeff
Curran student Nate Mohr in the first round by ankle lock.
Gamburyan will talk about his return to the cage as well as
his goals for 2008 in the UFC’s lightweight division and if Nate Diaz is still
on his radar for a possible rematch.
