As always, the video above features clickable annotations and timestamps, and below is a rundown of what to expect on the episode. We hope you enjoy the show.

Dr. AnnMaria De Mars returns to the program (at the 3:54 mark) to discuss how she deals with the attention of being the mother of Ronda Rousey, the educational video games she creates, Ronda's brutal KO loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193 and the advice her corner gave her, why she considers Edmond Tarverdyan an idiot and a fraud, whether she believes Ronda can beat Holly in a rematch if she stays at Glendale Fight Club, her thoughts on Ronda's Hollywood success and if she'd prefer for Ronda to step away from MMA, Ronda's generosity, and lots more.

Tim Kennedy returns (at the 27:14 mark) to talk about his role in the new movie Range 15, fighting Randy Couture naked, Yoel Romero getting flagged by USADA, what this does to the UFC middleweight division, if a rematch between Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman makes sense and how he thinks it will play out, why he's been passed over for so many fights, not fighting Lyoto Machida due to being deployed by the army, why Michael Bisping will beat Anderson Silva, wanting to crush Anderson in one round, Vitor Belfort getting another title shot, and lots more.

Don Frye returns (at the 50:26 mark) to discuss his thoughts on Rizin trying to revive Japanese MMA, being asked to fight and his conversation with Jerry Millen, why Rizin won't be as big as Pride, potentially fighting Fedor, his crazy unknown fights before the UFC, fighting injured and fighters frequently pulling out of fights, if Cain Velasquez can return to form and become champion again, Ronda Rousey's loss to Holm and why Don respects Holly Holm, Scott Coker and Bellator not returning Don's calls, and lots more.
