On this episode of Full Contact Fighter Radio, host Jeff “Wombat” Meszaros and co-host James Kellaris review “UFC 120: Bisping vs. Akiyama”, where Michael “The Count” Bisping won a decision over judo expert Yoshihiro Akiyama after nearly being knocked out in the first round. What was Akiyama thinking trading strikes with Bisping? Does judo even work in mixed martial arts? Tune in and hear the inflammatory answers to these questions, plus a rundown of the rest of the card including an explanation of the fight between Carlos Condit and Dan “The Outlaw” Hardy where Condit knocked Hardy out cold, despite getting hit with the exact same punch just seconds before. Also, if you were perplexed by the outcome of Mike Pyle vs. John Hathaway, you weren’t the only one; but we called that one dead-on, my friend. Why was Hathaway out-classed by Pyle but totally able to shut down Diego Sanchez in an earlier fight? We’ve got a theory you’ve got to hear. Plus, what was up with Cheick Kongo constantly grabbing the shorts of Travis Browne? What fight were the judges watching? How was that a draw?
Tune in and join the outrage, then stick around as we move on to chat about “UFC 121: Lesnar vs. Velasquez” where current UFC champ Brock Lesnar and heavyweight Mexican sensation Cain Velasquez will collide for the heavyweight belt. What’s gonna happen? We have our guesses. What about former Strikeforce champ Jake Shields vs. Martin “The Hitman” Kampmann? Who’s gonna take that one? Tune in and hear a rousing evaluation, then hang on as Kampmann himself stops by to weigh in on his match and the rest of the card. Wowzers! If you ask for more, you’re just greedy.
