McKinnell brings inside insight from Las Vegas as to who T.J. Dillashaw may defend his UFC bantamweight title against first. Plus, they discuss the brilliance of Dillashaw dethroning Barao and bringing gold home to Team Alpha Male, Chael Sonnen losing Wanderlei Silva as an opponent due to refusing a drug test, but gaining Vitor Belfort (pending a Nevada State license), and World Series of Fighting arriving on NBC network TV. Does UFC featherweight champ Jose Aldo deserve more pay? Is Robbie Lawler gunning for Fighter of the Year 2014?
UFC middleweight headliner Cung Le stops by and discusses the Octagon’s return to China. Le doesn’t believe upcoming opponent Michael Bisping will stand with him for 25 minutes. He’s also respectful of “The Count” with a one-fight-at-time approach and won’t look past the well-traveled Brit. Finally, Le shares disappointment Chael Sonnen is preparing for a fight and isn’t available for promo work pointers. “I know one way I can please the fans—I’m gonna let the punches and kicks fly.”
