After a few weeks off, The MMA Word mixed martial arts podcast is back on Fightline.com, and UFC 171 gave us all a lot to discuss. Johny Hendricks came back from a hellish beating put on him by Robbie Lawler in the third round of their welterweight title fight to win and become the new UFC welterweight champion. Here’s what is lined up for this week’s show:
–UFC 171 Recap: I give my thoughts on the card and which fights and fighters stood out with the most impressive and dominant performances, and who might be next for the new champ.
–Louis Gaudinot Interview: UFC flyweight Louis Gaudinot joins us this week to discuss his recent win in London over Phil Harris.
–MMA Headlines: Phil Baroni signs with Bellator, UFC heading to San Antonio in June, Terry Etim is out of the Bellator lightweight tournament. Nothing too crazy this week.
–UFC Fight Night 39 Preview: Shogun and Hendo are going to run it back on Sunday night in Brazil, so I’ve got another pre-fight rundown for the main card, which is just teeming with Ultimate Fighter winners.
