It was an off week with no UFC or Strikeforce events, but there was still plenty to discuss.

We opened the show with talk of Impact FC and the rather regrettable decline of Ken Shamrock. Callers weighed-in on whether it's time for "The World's Most Dangerous Man" to quit and we tried to figure out what it all meant.

In segment two we caught with AOL FanHouse's national reporter A.J. Perez. We talked to Perez about his article on the death of MMA fighter Michael Kirkham in South Carolina.

In the third segment we caught up with Eric "Butterbean" Esch. We talked to Butterbean about a potential Kimbo Slice vs. Mariusz Pudzianowski bout in Moosin, why he'd be able to easily KO Pudzianowski and more. You can listen to the interview here, but a full write-up is coming tomorrow.

We then took more calls on a ton of topics including a potential Fedor vs. Overeem bout, the failure of Mayweather vs. Pacquiao to be booked, Jake Shields to the UFC and more.

Last, but certainly not least, we heard from our good friend Chad Dukes. Chad argues a Lashley vs. Batista pay-per-view bout on Strikeforce is capable of 200k buys. We also look ahead to UFC 117 and comment at length about what a fantastically stacked event it is, yet will only do a modest amount of buys.

UStream video of the show is here. And by the way, we're going to try integrating callers into the UStream feed next week. Fingers crossed that it works.

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.
