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.
Serious technical difficulties made yesterday’s episode unlistenable. So we’ve just blown it up completely, and recorded a replacement episode focusing on Conor McGregor and UFC 197 discussion.
As you’d expect We begin this week’s show discussing McGregor’s original teased retirement, the multiple responses from Dana White, and the most recent Facebook statement made by McGregor.
Then we preview as many of the fights on this Saturday night’s UFC 197: Jones vs. Saint Preux that we can, including Jon Jones vs. Ovince Saint Preux for the UFC Interim Light Heavyweight Championship, Demetrious Johnson vs. Henry Cejudo for the UFC Flyweight Championship, and a highly anticipated Lightweight fight between Anthony Pettis and Edson Barboza.
Finally, we break down the rest of the week’s MMA news including the results of last weekend’s UFC On Fox 19, Ben Henderson challenging for the Bellator Welterweight Championship, the short-lived suspension of Kimbo Slice, the arrest of Diego Brandao, some Bellator and Rizin results, and more.
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.
