After the 10-decision catastrophe that was UFC 169, Episode 22 of "Darce Side Radio" podcast returns to sort through the aftermath from Super Bowl Weekend in N.J. and what may be next for those who went the distance, and the few who didn't.

Abel Trujillo, UFC 169's double-bonus winner will join the show to talk about his "Fight of the Night" against Jamie Varner that woke up the Newark crowd after the seven straight decisions that preceded it. Veteran MMA broadcaster and FUSE TV producer Mike Straka will stop by to discuss his visit to Los Angeles last week for a Motley Crue interview and his new gig as commentator of the CFFC promotion in NJ. Lastly, Lion Fight CEO, Scott Kent joins the show to preview Lion FIght 13, which is taking place this Friday on AXS TV.
