MMA's Great Debate Radio returns for Tuesday's show with plenty of fallout from last weekend's UFC 159 show, and one of the biggest winners from the weekend, Pat Healy, joins us as our guest.

Healy had to sit and wait like a lot of Strikeforce fighters for most of 2012, although he did finally get a fight in early 2013 before the promotion closed its doors for good.

He made the most of that moment before making his debut against the always tough Jim Miller at UFC 159 over the weekend.

What resulted was Healy picking up a victory over Miller, while also capturing two bonuses netting him an extra $130,000.

On today's show, Healy will talk about the long road back to the UFC from Strikeforce, and his impressions of the fight that took place with Miller.


Today's debate topics include:

—Did anything surprise you in the Jon Jones vs. Chael Sonnen fight at UFC 159?

—Has Jon Jones surpassed Anderson Silva as the best pound-for-pound fighter in MMA?

—Who should Jon Jones face next?

—Should Chael Sonnen consider retirement?

—More impressive debut runs—WEC fighters or Strikeforce fighters in the UFC?

This is MMA's Great Debate Radio for Tuesday, April 30, 2012
