MMA's Great Debate Radio returns for Thursday's show with Daniel Cormier, Daniel Roberts and debate about Shane Carwin's retirement and the UFC 159 pay-per-view numbers.

Daniel Cormier stops by the show on Thursday to talk about his fight and win over Frank Mir at UFC on Fox 7 and how the nerves affected him that night.

He will also update his next fight and whether he intends on staying at heavyweight or moving down to light heavyweight.

Also on the show is former UFC welterweight Daniel Roberts, who hopes to earn his way back to the Octagon with his next fight against fellow UFC veteran Brian Foster.


Finally, new debate topics are featured on the show including:

—Shane Carwin retired from MMA this week.  What will his lasting legacy be in the sport?

—According to reports, UFC 159 did somewhere in the neighborhood of 520,000 buys. Are those numbers encouraging or discouraging considering the main event?

Chuck Liddell spoke out recently about fighters playing it safe and not going for the finish.  Does Liddell have a point with the current crop of fighters?

—UFC is developing new gloves to help stop eye pokes. Good move or bad move?

This is MMA's Great Debate Radio for Thursday, May 9, 2013.
