We return for another MMA podcast. This time we are previewing the massive card in Montreal, Quebec, UFC 154. How big is big you ask? 13 fights! Including 5 on the main card. The highlight of course is the epic showdown between the Interim Welterweight Champion, Carlos Condit (28-5), against the returning Welterweight Champion, Georges St-Pierre (22-2).

Quite frankly this is a massive fight and one that will affect GSP’s legacy far into the future. If he wins this fight, then the Anderson Silva fight must happen. If he loses, then GSP must recapture his belt, perhaps by first fighting Nick Diaz and working his way back toward Condit.

But there are other exciting fights on the card including a #1 contender eliminator between Martin Kampann (20-5) and Johny Hendricks (13-1), the streaking Francis Carmont (19-7) against Tom Lawler (8-4), and England’s very own John Maguire (18-4) fighting Matthew Riddle (10-3).

Also, we have announced a contest for our listeners. Help us name this podcast. We’ve had lots of ideas submitted from fellow MMA junkies from around the world and we share the most memorable ones. The person that submits the best name will get … a … vote of gratitude?

Finally, as part of a global network of MMA fans around the world, we welcome on Eirik from Norway to give us his perspective on the big fight as well as the outlook and future of Norwegian MMA. And, as always, a big thanks to our friends over at MMAShare.com
