MMAWeekly Radio weekend edition returns with a loaded show including former Strikeforce champion Cung Le, UFC welterweight Anthony Johnson, and an in depth look at UFC 136 and its fallout.
Cung Le talks about his move from Strikeforce to the UFC to fight Wanderlei Silva, signing a six-fight contract, and how often he intends to fight.
“They know that I am pushing hard to do the movies and I have some big ones coming out. (The UFC) said they will work around my schedule.”
But with such a busy schedule, is he ready to step in with an iconic fighter like Wanderlei? Le seems to think so.
“Go big or go home.”
Looking to get back in the Octagon before the end of the year, Anthony Johnson had a lot on his mind, notably his change in management.
“I just learned that MMA when it comes down to the money game and managers and stuff like that… there are a lot of snakes in the grass.”
The Weekend Edition crew also breaks down UFC 136 and the winners and losers of the fights. What does Kenny Florian do now, having failed in his third bid at claiming a UFC title? Is Frankie Edgar really the No. 2 pound-for-pound fighter in the world? Who should Edgar fight next? We break it all down.
