UFC's Jon Jones Open Workout
If the Ultimate Fighting Championship has a folk hero, it may well be Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. Having fought three times already this year and riding a four fight win streak with four straight finishes, Cerrone is the living embodiment of an “anybody, any time, any place” approach to fighting.

Listen to Richard Hunter talk with Donald Cerrone about his co main event fight Saturday with Eddie Alvarez:

Richard talks to UFC “Ultimate Fighter” cast member Randa Markos about tonight’s episode

vice-randa1

The 20th season of The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s “Ultimate Fighter” reality franchise is breaking ground on several fronts.

For one, it’s the first season to feature an all women cast. For another, it’s the debut of the women’s 115 pound straw weight division, joining the 135 pound women led by champion Ronda Rousey. Thirdly, this season’s winner will be crowned the inaugural women’s straw weight champion, which amounts to much higher stakes than just the customary six figure contract that past seasons’ winners have claimed. In fact, all of the women on TUF 20 enter the season as contracted UFC fighters, and no one has impressed early as much as Randa Markos.

Listen to Richard Hunter talk to Randa Markos about her first episode upset of Tecia Torres.

Richard talks to Miesha Tate about her return to the UFC cage Saturday

UFC Tokyo Press Conference

If it weren’t for Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate might be the most well known female fighter in the UFC.
Having twice fought and lost to the current women’s bantamweight champ Rousey, Tate still sits at #2 in the division’s rankings. Her popularity dramatically increased when she coached opposite Rousey on the 18th season of “The Ultimate Fighter”, and signing on with NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick’s sportsmanagement company has brought her lucrative product endorsement deals from high profile sponsors like Budweiser.

Saturday, she returns to The Octagon in a fight that will air live from Japan exclusively on UFC’s Fight Pass online network (2:00 am CT). Listen to Richard Hunter talk with Miesha Tate about her fight this Saturday:
