MMA's Great Debate Radio returns with another stacked show including guests Carlos Condit, Clay Guida and Jamie Varner as well as all new debate topics.

Carlos Condit will drop by to discuss his upcoming fight against Martin Kampmann at UFC Fight Night 27. He will update the progress on his wrestling and talk about what a chance at redemption means against Kampmann.

Also on the show, Clay Guida responds to criticism that he's received about his recent fights, and how a win over Chad Mendes gets him into title contention.

Jamie Varner also joins us today to talk about his bout at UFC 164 against Gleison Tibau as well as answering about a potential fight against his teammate and friend Benson Henderson.

Finally, the debate heats up today with all new topics including discussions about Bellator's bizarre move to apparently let welterweight champion Ben Askren leave the promotion without a fight.

Today's debate topics include:

—Bellator walking away from champion Ben Askren saying they won't make him an offer at this point. What do you make of Bellator's move?

—Will Lyoto Machida be a legit contender in the middleweight division?

—Is the UFC making the right move putting Chael Sonnen against Wanderlei Silva?

—Out of both fight cards next week—UFC 164 and UFC Fight Night 27—who is the fighter in the biggest must win situation and why?

This is MMA's Great Debate Radio for Thursday, August 22, 2013
