Team Lloyd Irvin's Mike "The Hulk" Easton has long been recognized as one of MMA's top bantamweight fighters.

Darren McFarland, Ed Clay, Chris Pappas and NFL vet, Brad Hopkins, along with the best and hardest-hitting MMA radio show intro music, are back! The fellas were back in the studio Thursday as they welcomed MMA veteran, but a UFC newcomer, Mike “The Hulk” Easton, to the show.

Easton, long considered one of the sport’s top bantamweights, will make his UFC debut this weekend in his hometown of Washington, D.C., at UFC on Versus 6, when he takes on fellow newcomer, Byron Bloodworth.

Easton discussed his long journey to the big show and what it means to him to be able to make his Octagon debut in front of his hometown friends and family. He also talked about fighting on the card alongside friend and teammate, Dominick Cruz.

In addition to talking with Easton, the guys discussed the UFC on Versus 6 main event between bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz and Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson. They also discussed UFC light heavyweight champ Jon Jones‘ victory over “Rampage” Jackson last weekend and Jones’ next title defense against former friend and former champion, Rashad Evans. All this and much more on this episode of Round One MMA Radio!
