presents: Afternoon Press Box with guest Mike “The Hulk” Easton

Mike "The Hulk" Easton is eager to return to MMA action.

During Wednesday’s Afternoon Press Box, Darren and the boys were joined by one of MMA’s top bantamweights, Mike “The Hulk” Easton (10-1).

Easton spent all of 2010 sidelined due to injury, but the BJJ black belt said he will be able to start training again very soon.

Easton is friends and training partners with UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz, and had quite a few things to say about Cruz’s upcoming opponent, Urijah Faber.

Easton also talked about his relationship with Coach Lloyd Irvin and the impact he has had on his life and career.

In addition to the interview with Easton, the guys discussed the team aspect of MMA, Randy Couture’s retirement plans, GSP vs. Shields and more.
