There weren't any major fights last weekend, but the train rolled on just the same.

We opened the show by setting up the show, talking more about Brock Lesnar, how many PPV buys UFC 116 likely did and mentioned Dan Gilbert's tirade against LeBron James and how it relates to Dana White.

Segment two is where we caught up with UFC light heavyweight contender Vladimir Matyushenko (a fuller write-up of this interview is coming). Matyushenko talks about Fedor's popularity in Russia, going to the BET Awards and why he deserves a title shot if he beats Jon Jones.

Segment three we go back to the phones and cover too many topics UFC-related to list here. And by the way, thanks to all the callers from across North America who are making the show better with their contributions.

In segment four we take a look into UFC 117, talk about any potential impact Dave Batista might have on Strikeforce and field yet more listener calls.

Segment five is a return to Brock Lesnar and what makes him such a special athlete. We also look ahead to James Toney and Randy Couture's heavyweight showdown at UFC 118.

Last, but certainly not least, we field a few more calls before going into the main event results from DREAM.15. I explain why I don't talk much MMA from Japan on my show as well as talk about whether Gilbert Melendez should fight a rematch against Shinya Aoki.

We are on Facebook, I'm on Twitter, James Kimball is on Twitter, Othello is on Twitter and the show's podcasts can all be found here. Email me here. Thanks for the support. SPREAD THE WORD.
