It's UFC 166 fight week and we've got a stacked show to get ready for the event with co-main eventers Daniel Cormier and Roy Nelson joining us as well as flyweight contender John Dodson stopping by as well.

Cormier and Nelson certainly don't have any love lost for each other, and during our interviews with them we will explore that mutual disdain. Nelson will react to Cormier's request that he shave down his beard ahead of their fight. Meanwhile, Cormier will happily explain why it's not okay for Nelson to look like a casting extra from Duck Dynasty while fighting professionally in the UFC.

Also on the show, John Dodson explains what it's like to come so close to winning a title in the UFC, but coming up just short. He also tells why his motivation is more about getting a rematch with Demetrious Johnson right now than fighting for the belt again.

Finally, the debate topics on today's show cover the entire gambit of UFC 166: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 3. Who comes out on top in the main event and is this the greatest rivalry in heavyweight history? Plus we give our picks and predictions on the entire main card as well as discuss who is in the biggest must win situation on Saturday night.
