MMA's Great Debate Radio returns for Thursday's show with debate about Chael Sonnen and the latest union threats to the UFC, along with guests including World Series of Fighting 4's Nick Newell and Tyson Griffin, as well as RFA Fighting's Jeff Curran.
Known as one of the most inspirational stories in all of MMA, Nick Newell stops by the show to discuss his new deal with World Series of Fighting and what it means to fight on the biggest stages in MMA.
Former UFC fighter Tyson Griffin also stops by to discuss his fight this weekend against JZ Cavalcante, as well as his hopes for a career rebirth in World Series of Fighting.
Finally, Jeff Curran drops in to talk about why he dropped out of his last fight, an apology to fans and his upcoming title fight at Resurrection Fighting Alliance.
The debate heats up on today's show as we discuss the latest union move to block Chael Sonnen from receiving a fight license ahead of his bout at UFC Fight Night 26. Has the union finally gone too far this time?
Also today we will debate the recent news that Ronda Rousey is in talks to join yet another major film franchise, but will this mean she's headed out of MMA for good?
Other debate topics on today's show include:
—Unions have filed a complaint in Boston forcing a special session to review Chael Sonnen's fight license. Have the unions finally gone too far in this vendetta against Zuffa?
—Ronda Rousey in talks to join Fast and Furious 7‑is she headed the same way that Gina Carano did leaving MMA?
—World Series of Fighting puts on their 4th card this weekend—how would you grade them as an organization thus far on a scale of 1-10?
