The MMA Word mixed martial arts podcast is back with another episode on Fightline.com, after an eventful with weekend in fighting with UFC on Fox 10 going down this past Saturday, and UFC 169 on the horizon. Here’s a breakdown of this week’s show:
–I was in attendance at CES 21 at Twin River Casino in Lincoln, RI on Friday night, for the epic bantamweight fight between New England rising stars Andre Soukhamthath and Kin Moy. I recap the night’s action from the local mma event in Rhode Island.
–UFC on Fox 10 Recap: Yet another Benson Henderson fight leaves some fans scratching their heads as to how he got the decision. This time around, he went to the judges scorecards in an extremely close contest with Josh Thomson in the main event of UFC on Fox 10. I give my take on the decision and give a round-by-round breakdown which ultimately lead me to score the fight 48-47 for Henderson. Stipe Miocic also won a decision over Gabriel Gonzaga and Donald Cerrone landed a head kick that knocked out Adriano Martins. I give my thoughts on the card and some of the better performances from the prelims.
–Interview with Andy Main: Andy Main takes on Akira Okada this Sunday at Pancrase 256. I talk with Andy about the fight, getting acclimated with the time difference, his gym, Pure MMA in New Jersey, and his time on Season 12 of The Ultimate Fighter.
–Pre-Fight Rundown for UFC 169: Barao vs Faber and Aldo vs Lamas headline a very good pay-per-view card this Saturday? night in Newark, and I break down the action set for the main card and give my picks on whether or not we see a new champion crowned this weekend.
