Remember, our new time slot from now on: Sundays 9 to 11pm EST.
Today on "MMA Nation" we'll be joined by ESPN's Jon Anik. As the host of MMA Live, we'll talk to Anik about the show's development, whether it's too close to the UFC and what the network views as successful metrics now that it has made the leap to television.
We'll also be joined by UWC bantamweight champion Mike "The Hulk" Easton. We'll talk to Easton about his controversial win over Chase Beebe, the growth of MMA in DC and his upcoming title defense against Ryan Diaz at UWC 8 on May 22nd.
I'll also be giving away a brief recap of last night's Washington Combat. A brief mention of Shine Fights will also be thrown in, time permitting.
And who can forget last night's Strikeforce: Heavy Artillery event? We'll be talking all the results and taking your calls. Topics to include:
- Is a potential Overeem vs. Fedor fight a bigger fight than Lesnar vs. Carwin?
- What's next for Andrei Arlovski?
- Am I the worst person in America for idiotically picking Brett Rogers to defeat my personal hero?
I'm also on Twitter: @mmanation.
AS A NEW FEATURE: We'll stream the show live over UStream.tv. Here's my channel. I'll embed the live stream player in this post when the show begins. If you want to ask a question for us to answer on air, leave a question in the comments section. We'll get to all of them.
"MMA Nation" is also available by podcast on iTunes. For now, iTunes is disabled, but the show will be posted on the station's website soon afterward. I'll be sure to put a post up when they're ready to go. And when we're back on iTunes, I'll put up a link to that as well.
Number to call: 800-636-1067
Talk to you then.
