UFC 129: St. Pierre vs. Shields Preview and Eddie Alvarez Interview


On this episode of Full Contact Fighter Radio, host Jeff “Wombat” Meszaros and co-host James Kellaris run down the card for “UFC 129: St. Pierre vs. Shields” where UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre takes on former Strikeforce champion Jake Shields.  Who will win?  Listen and hear what we think!  Who is the better grappler?  Who’s the better striker?  Is Shields really an underdog?  Or will the world be incredibly shocked this weekend?   Plus, what about the fight between UFC’s 145-pound champion Jose Aldo and Canadian super-striker Mark Hominick?  Will Aldo stand and trade strikes with the “The Machine”?  Or will we finally see his skills on the ground?  What about Randy Couture vs. Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida?  Will Couture use his patented “Wall ‘n’ Brawl” techniques to crush the Brazilian karate-fighter?  Or will Machida leap in from ten feet away and knock Couture’s head clean off?  Who knows?  Also, is Couture really retiring after this match?  We’re not so sure.  Tune in and hear why, then hang around as Bellator champion Eddie Alvarez stops by for a rousing talk about his last fight, his next fight and his thoughts on the rest of the lightweight division.  Catch his thoughts on the fights coming up this weekend and his opinion on him vs. Gilbert Melendez, Frankie Edgar vs. Melendez and more or less every other lightweight match up we can throw at him.  If that’s not a show, we don’t know what it is.  Honestly, we don’t!
