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 197: Jones vs. Saint Preux event featured the two top pound-for-pound fighters in the world competing on the same night, but providing two wildly different performances. In the first half of this week’s episode we break down all of the results, including the long-awaited return of new UFC Interim Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones, and the latest dominating performance by UFC Flyweight Champion Demetrious Johnson.
In the second half of this week’s episode we continue discussing the awkward online battle between the UFC and Conor McGregor, the results of Bellator 153: Koreshkov vs. Henderson, The Ultimate Fighter 23, the retirement of UFC Flyweight Patrick Holohan, a long list of recent UFC cuts, ongoing issues with the Ontario Athletic Commission, 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.
