MMAWeekly Radio returns for 2012 with a big show to kick off the new year with guests including Ronda Rousey, Keith Jardine and the debut of ‘The Sixth Round’.

For only having four fights, Ronda Rousey has stirred the pot quite a bit in her short time involved in MMA. She’s calling out Strikeforce champion Miesha Tate and isn’t shy about the attention she’s gotten from it either.

Here what she has to say about that as well as answering the question if she’s the person to take the reigns from Gina Carano as the face of women’s MMA?

Also, a focused Keith Jardine talks about his fight with Luke Rockhold this weekend in Strikeforce. Why should he even get a shot at the middleweight belt? Jardine tells you why on today’s show.

Tuesday also marks the debut of the new format of MMAWeekly Radio called ‘The Sixth Round’ where Damon and Jeff go head to head on the best debate topics in MMA.

The debate topics for Tuesday’s show include:

– What legacy does Brock Lesnar leave behind in MMA and the UFC?
– Who do you give bigger credit to for the main event result…Alistair Overeem winning or Brock Lesnar losing?
– How great of a shot does Alistair Overeem have against Junior Dos Santos?
– Is Nate Diaz a legit threat to the lightweight title?
– Was Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone simply outmatched or was he overhyped?
– Will Jon Fitch ever get back to a title shot after his loss to Johny Hendricks?

This is MMAWeekly Radio and the Sixth Round for Tuesday, Jan 3.

    1) Lots of potential, big draw, little skill outside of his original wrestling base
    2) Both equally; I’m sure Brock would have jumped on top of Alistair had he caught him with something in the first few minutes too. Nobody _wants_ to lose
    3) A very good one if he can avoid them boulders on the end of JDS’ arms
    4) If Nate shows up in the zone like he did December 30th he’s a threat to anybody
    5) Poorly enacted game play, better man won that night
    6) Jon Fitch talked a ton of **** for 2 years after his loss to GSP and then gets KO’d by a guy who, according to him, he shouldn’t have even been fighting. Couldn’t care less what Fitch does next; he’s a great grinder with a terribly boring personality.

    1) The Legacy of a Quitter for MMA, and the Legacy of a Tool for the UFC.

    2)Allistair winning. He brought and executed a flawless gameplan.

    3)Junior is a striking specialist, but won’t change his game up if it’s not working. If Overeem can avoid/endure the first 2 rounds, he will most likely win.

    4)Nate seems unshakable, at 155 his range and accuracy should dominate with strong bjj to back him up.

    5)Cerrone lost the mental game and fought out of his zone. Nate put it on him and deserves credit for beating a tough opponent. Cerrone is not hype.

    6)Fitch’s only chance is to put a Hendricks on his next opponent. If he grinds out a victory, he’s gonna grind himself into ‘who was that guy again’?
