On this episode of Full Contact Fighter Radio, host Jeff "wombat" Meszaros and co-host James Kellaris share their poorly-thought-out predictions for the finale of The Ultimate Fighter, this Saturday. Who is the guy that Stephan Bonnar is fighting? How do you even pronounce his name? What is he doing on the main event? Does this reek of Rashad Evans vs. Sean Salmon? What about the rest of the event? Then it's time to talk about "Strikeforce: Henderson vs. Babalu 2" where Dan Henderson faces Renato "Babalu" Sobral for the second time in his career. Will he be able to handle Sobral for a second time? What happened in their first fight? Does that even matter? Tune in for the answers to these burning questions, as well as a smattering of off-topic banter.
Then hang around as we discuss the rest of the card, where Matt "The Law" Lindland fights Robbie Lawler and Antonio "Big Foot" Silva faces Mike Kyle. Like that isn't enough, we bring in Scott "Hands of Steel" Smith to chat about his match with Paul Daley, and share his opinion on the rest of the event. How do we provide such quality week after week? Our guess: fearless determination in the face of insurmountable obstacles.
