Following an action packed weekend at UFC 164, MMA's Great Debate Radio returns with a stacked show for Tuesday with guests including Ryan Bader and Joseph Benavidez.

Bader will stop by to discuss his main event bout against Glover Teixeira at UFC Fight Night 28, and what a win will do for him in the ever-competitive 205-pound division. He will also discuss the hype surrounding Teixeira, and if the ranking he's received recently is justified.

Also on the show, Joseph Benavidez will preview his fight this week against Jussier Formiga and how obsessing over winning a title may have cost him a belt on two different occasions.

Finally on today's show, the debate heats up as we break down the events that happened last week at UFC 164 as well as look ahead at some of the key fights for UFC Fight Night 28 on Wednesday.

Today's debate topics include:

—Following Anthony Pettis' win at UFC 164, Dana White says he doesn't see a third fight with Benson Henderson happening. Fair or foul?

—Now that Anthony Pettis is champion, who should be his next opponent—Jose Aldo or T.J. Grant?

—Was the stoppage in the Josh Barnett vs. Frank Mir fight too early?

—Fight Pick: Joseph Benavidez vs. Jussier Formiga

—Fight Pick: Yushin Okami vs. Jacare Souza

—Fight Pick: Glover Teixeira vs. Ryan Bader

This is MMA's Great Debate Radio for Tuesday, September 3, 2013
