With no major fight cards this weekend, MMA's Great Debate Radio catches up with UFC middleweight Cung Le and Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney, who previews the upcoming summer series on Spike TV.

Cung Le stops by to discuss his potential return to action and also explains why he hasn't been back in the UFC since his huge knockout win over Rich Franklin last year.

With filming on a new movie just about to start, Le discusses his future in Hollywood and what it will take for him to step back inside the Octagon again.

Also on the show today, Bellator CEO Bjorn Rebney stops by to talk about the upcoming summer series for the promotion that debuts on Spike TV on June 19.

Rebney will also give updates on several fighters such as Paul Daley and why you're not likely to see Quinton "Rampage" Jackson inside the Bellator cage.
