MMA's Great Debate Radio returns with a stacked show for Tuesday including UFC 160 fighters T.J. Grant and Mike Pyle as well as recently retired UFC lightweight John Cholish.

With a title shot on the line in his fight at UFC 160, T.J. Grant stops by to talk about his rise to the top of the lightweight division since dropping down from 170 pounds.

Grant will discuss his upcoming fight against Gray Maynard, and the possibility of facing Benson Henderson next.

Also on today's show, veteran fighter Mike Pyle will talk about his resurgence lately where he's knocked out three opponents in a row.  Can he make Rick Story the fourth victim?  Pyle speaks about the fight and his place in the UFC's welterweight division.

The final interview of today features former UFC lightweight John Cholish, who retired over the weekend following his fight against Gleison Tibau at UFC on FX 8.

Cholish has made a splash since his retirement announcement, speaking out about fighter pay issues. On today's show, Cholish expands on that conversation by breaking down dollar by dollar what it costs to be a UFC fighter.

The debate on today's show heats up as well with several hot button subjects being discussed, including Vitor Belfort's latest win, Nate Diaz's controversial tweet and much more.

Today's debate topics include:

—Vitor Belfort wins again, but the questions about TRT continue to cloud his performances. Will those questions ever die down or will it continue to haunt him forever?

—Should Vitor Belfort get the next shot at the UFC middleweight title?

—Nate Diaz fined and suspended for tweeting homophobic slur but shows no remorse for action. Do you agree with Diaz's stance?

—John Cholish spoke out about fighter pay problems in the UFC.  Do you think this is a widespread issue fighters just aren't talking about?
