MMA's Great Debate returns to talk about the fallout from UFC on Fox 8 as well as welcome in Bellator welterweight champ Ben Askren and top light heavyweight contender Muhammed "King Mo" Lawal.

Askren will join the show today to discuss his upcoming fight at Bellator 97 against Russian fighter Andrey Koreshkov, as well as his current standing with Bellator. Is he planning on staying with the promotion when his next contract comes up?

Also on the show, Lawal discusses his beef with upcoming opponent Jacob Noe and his expectations about fighting for the Bellator title soon.

Finally, UFC on Fox 8 goes under the microscope as we debate the impact of the show and ratings, and we'll break down some of the best and worst performances.


The debate topics on today's show include:

—Now that UFC on Fox 8 is over, how would you rate the show on a scale of 1-10?

—Did Demetrious Johnson do anything for his drawing power with the performance he put on over John Moraga?

—Rory MacDonald's win over Jake Ellenberger—no risks taken, boring performance or tactical brilliance?

—Georges St-Pierre says the media is trying to create conflict with him and MacDonald—is he right?
