Episode 54: Faber, Shevchenko, Ortiz, GDR, Hall, Coker, Hardy, more

Ariel Helwani's MMA Show starts off with a recap of a jam-packed weekend in MMA. Ariel's old friend, Andre "Touchy" Fili, first joins the show to discuss what he calls "the best weekend of his life" (8:40). Next, UFC featherweight Ryan Hall talks about his weekend win in Sacramento before passionately explaining why he deleted his Twitter account (31:30). Then, just days before his Saturday fight in San Antonio, Alexander "The Great" Hernandez looks ahead to his matchup with lightweight Francisco Trinaldo (52:50). Next, Bellator President Scott Coker announces some big news about the male featherweight division (1:08:00). UFC legend Tito Ortiz then explains why he is ending his retirement to face Alberto del Rio in Combate America later this year (1:27:25). After that, just days after tying the record for the second-fastest KO in the history of her division, Germaine de Randamie explains how she's moved on from her rocky past and why she's adopted a positive mindset (1:47:30). Plus, she discusses a potential fight with UFC featherweight champion Amanda Nunes. The man of the hour, bantamweight Urijah Faber, then discusses his return to the Octagon and what it's like now fighting as a father (2:27:12). Julianna Pena then talks about her win this weekend, her first fight since giving birth in January 2017 (2:48:10).

Lastly, UFC heavyweight Greg Hardy talks about his boxing workouts at Floyd Mayweather's gym, if he still has the itch to play football and if he feels accepted by the MMA community (3:14:10).
