Hammer 277: New Champions and Preview of Dos Anjos vs Cerrone

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.

Following three consecutive nights of newsworthy UFC events last weekend, there is already another one coming up this Saturday night. We spend the first half of this week’s episode trying to digest the fight results, the hype, and the two new champions crowned during UFC 194: Aldo vs. McGregor, UFC Fight Night: Edgar vs. Mendes and UFC Fight Night: Namajunas vs. Van Zant.

Then we look forward to this coming weekend’s UFC On Fox: Dos Anjos vs. Cerrone 2, where Donald Cerrone has his first UFC Lightweight Championship shot, as well as a chance to avenge his previous loss to current champion Raphael Dos Anjos. We preview the title fight, the long-awaited Junior Dos Santos vs. Alistair Overeem co-main event, and the rest of the card.

Also, check in next week for our annual MMA awards episode.

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 SportsThe Itunes Store, Stitcher, MMAPodcast.com, Player.FM, find @SteveJeffery on Twitter, or just email us.
