Tim Kennedy is a decorated Army Ranger who wanted nothing more than to perform in front of the troops at the upcoming UFC show being held at Fort Campbell in Kentucky, and on today's show he'll explain why he wanted this fight so bad plus he extends his offer to the UFC to lead the security team for Chael Sonnen when he comes to Brazil.

Also on the show, Alexis Davis talks about her upcoming bout against Liz Carmouche and where the women stand in the UFC after six months inside the Octagon.

Finally, Ultimate Fighter assistant coach Bryan Caraway talks about the latest drama between Ronda Rousey and his girlfriend Miesha Tate — is the entire season being blown out of proportion or is Rousey being protected by the cameras?

Finally the debate heats up as we review what happened last weekend in Manchester, England at UFC Fight Night: Machida vs. Munoz as well as preview the upcoming UFC Fight for the Troops show.

The guys debate:

  • Do you believe Lyoto Machida will be a legitimate threat to the middleweight division in the UFC?
  • Did the referee make the correct call in the Melvin Guillard/Ross Pearson fight?
  • Should the fight between Jessica Andrade and Rosi Sexton have been stopped?
  • Chael Sonnen vs. Wanderlei Silva coaching TUF Brazil — good move or bad move?
  • Fight Pick: Tim Kennedy vs. Rafael Natal?
  • Fight Pick: Alexis Davis vs. Liz Carmouche?
