The Boys at the Hammer feature weekly coverage of all things MMA. They have one of the premier radio shows in the world of MMA broadcasted weekly on Wednesday nights on 93.3 FM, CFMU and here at Last Word on Sports.
Last weekend’s UFC 193: Rousey vs. Holm featured a shocking upset in the main event when Holly Holm knocked out Ronda Rousey to win the UFC women’s Bantamweight Championship in front of a record breaking 56,000 Australian fans.
Needless to say there is a lot to digest from that night, and it takes up a big part of this week’s episode.
Although overshadowed a bit by the Rousey and Holm media explosion, the UFC does return to Mexico this coming weekend for UFC Fight Night: Magny vs. Gastellum. We spend the last part of this week’s show discussing the more interesting fights on this card, including the up-and-coming Welterweight contenders in the main event, and a likely number one contender fight between Jussier Formiga and Henry Cejudo.
Hosted by Steve Jeffery, David Abraham and Greg Persson.
Listen to us Wednesday nights at 6:30pm on CFMU 93.3 FM, and online at http://www.thehammermma.com, Last Word On Sports, The Itunes Store, Stitcher, MMAPodcast.com, Player.FM, find @SteveJeffery on Twitter, or just email us.
