Roundtable: UFC Fight Night 'Mendes Vs Lamas'

By Jack Encarnacao Apr 3, 2015

The UFC hits Fairfax, Virginia on Saturday for a rare afternoon broadcast on Fox Sports 1, and the Sherdog Radio Network "Roundtable" convened in an attempt to shine daylight on the chances of a range of fighters in the sport's toughest divisions as they look to either establish or fortify their positions.

Host Jack Encarnacao was joined by's Jordan Breen,'s Luke Thomas, and Wrestling Observer and Fighting Spirit contributor David Bixenspan for a detailed, top-to-bottom discussion of Saturday's fight card, headlined by Chad Mendes and Ricardo Lamas in a five-rounder and, for both, a bid to keep title once-dashed title hopes alive.

Listen as the panel go in unanimously on a slight underdog in one of the night's most important fights, and offer educated guesses on how Julianna Pena is likely to look coming off a grueling knee injury and if Dusitn Poirier is likely to reap rewards moving up to 155.

Plus, thoughts on a career crossroads for Gray Maynard and the stylistic edges at play in razor-close fights like Michael Chiesa v. Mitch Clarke and Liz Carmouche v. Lauren Murphy.

Ain't no better way to prep proper for an afternoon of high-stakes UFC fisticuffs than with the latest Sherdog Radio Network Roundtable, available for download here.
