The MMA Outsider: Episode 71

With UFC 153 in the books, what did we learn? Well, Anderson Silva is ridiculously better than Stephan Bonnar. Hopefully you didn't pay $60 for this kind of information. Regardless, Richard and John analyze the card, including Jon Fitch's impressive win over Erick Silva to get himself back into the welterweight title picture.

They also talk about the controversy of VADA trying to take over drug testing for the upcoming heavyweight bout between TUF 16 coaches Roy Nelson and Shane Carwin. Should fans trust the supposedly independent testing agency? Speaking of TUF, the boys wonder whether the UFC's pairing of Jon Jones and Chael Sonnen as TUF 17 coaches make sense given Sonnen's lack of accomplishments in the 205 pound division.

Also, joining the show is Demoreo Dennis, a 1-0 heavyweight training out of the Academy of Martial Arts in Oklahoma City. Demoreo, whose brother Myron has fought for Bellator, also trains at Team Takedown alongside several UFC veterans.
