Bloody Elbow Radio, presented by Bad Boy, will be LIVE! at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT for another edition of the show. Join hosts Matt Bishop and MMA Mania's Brian Hemminger as they discuss all the latest news in mixed martial arts, including Brock Lesnar vs. Alistair Overeem, Nick Diaz being pulled out of his UFC 137 main event fight with Georges St. Pierre and Carlos Condit taking his place, Josh Koscheck filling an for an injured Diego Sanchez against Matt Hughes and much, much more.
We'll also preview the weekend in MMA with a full preview of "Strikeforce Grand Prix: Barnett vs. Kharitonov" which is headlined by two Strikeforce World Heavyweight Grand Prix semifinal bouts, the first sees former EliteXC champion Antonio Silva battle two-time U.S. Olympian Daniel Cormier and the second sees former UFC kingpin Josh Barnett face Sergei Kharitonov. Also on the card, Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza defends his middleweight crown against Luke Rockhold.
Also on tap is a preview of Bellator 49, which features four quarterfinal bouts in the promotion's welterweight tournament and kicks off the company's fifth season.
We'll be joined by Zach Arnold of Fight Opinion to discuss the UFC's return to Japan in great detail and get his thoughts on what he calls a "vanity show."
