8:15PM ET- Kicking off the show tonight we are joined by the No. 3 Ranked UFC Flyweight, Ray “The Tazmexican Devil” Borg. Just days before the biggest fight of his career we’ll preview Ray’s first attempt at UFC gold as he faces the pound-for-pound best athlete in MMA, Demetrious Johnson. While DJ looks to break the record of most title defenses in UFC history, Borg has his own plans to steal the show and become one the youngest champions at just 24 years of age. You’ll hear why the Jackson/Wink-trained Borg believes he is the one to dethrone “Mighty Mouse” and where he expects to have clear advantages.

8:40PM ET- Closing out tonights show is ONE FC welterweight champion, “Funky” Ben Askren. Coming off yet another lopsided display of dominance over Zebaztian Kadestam in Shanghai over the weekend, Ben made waves in the MMA community when it was announced that he would be retiring after his next fight. To the pleasant surprise of many, Shinya Aoiki has been named as Ben’s final opponent and we’ll be getting his thoughts on the Japanese grappler in regards to both name-recognition and skill. You’ll hear about the former Olympian’s long-planned decision to retire close to his current age of 33, and what the future has in store for him both inside and outside of MMA. Also, a brief reflection on his legacy in combat sports and much more.
