MMA's Great Debate Radio returns for Tuesday's show with UFC on FX 8 headliner Luke Rockhold and former UFC champion Josh Barnett, as well as all new topics, including Bellator, drug testing in MMA and Alistair Overeem's return.

Rockhold joins the show today to discuss his upcoming debut in the UFC against Vitor Belfort. 

The former Strikeforce champion will address his hopes of fighting for the UFC title, Belfort's TRT usage and the recipe to beat the longtime UFC veteran.

Also on today's show is former UFC champion Josh Barnett, who will stop by to talk about his desire to return to his old stomping grounds.  Barnett sounds ready to return to the UFC, but will it happen and who could he face if he does come back?

Barnett will also talk about his relationship with Dana White and much, much more.

All new debate topics also highlight today's show, including discussion about some of the biggest stories of the past few days.

Debate topics on today's show include:

—Bellator continues to take a hit in the media with new stories surrounding Alvarez, Leonard Garcia and Zach Makovsky—how damaging is this latest round of information to Bellator's bottom line?

—Ben Askren has also stated that since he's been with Bellator, he's only been drug tested once—big problem or making a big deal out of nothing?

—Alistair Overeem will return at UFC 164 in Milwaukee—do you believe he can still get to a title shot in the UFC or has that ship sailed?

—Josh Barnett wants to return to the UFC—how will the Warmaster do against the new crop of heavyweight talent?
