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.
It’s finally here. UFC 194: Aldo vs. McGregor takes place this Saturday night, and it is possibly the deepest fight card in history.
The event is headlined by UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo defending against Interim UFC Featherweight Champion Conor McGregor in the definition of a grudge match, while UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman defends against the other best young Middleweight in the world, Luke Rockhold. We spend the first half of this week’s episode previewing the two title fights.
In the second half of the show we continue our look at the rest of the UFC 194 card, including an important contender’s matchup between Jacare Souza and Yoel Romero, as well as high-profile preliminary fights featuring Urijah Faber and Tecia Torres.
Hosted by Steve Jeffery, David Abraham and Greg Persson.
