So check that out. The link has a lot of different ways for you to listen in. Luke's show is always a good time, and for those who are also MMA fans, the show itself starts at 9pm EDT with a preview of the big, big, big upcoming UFC 129 show, so you'll want to be there for the whole thing.

On the Rampage: Vic Darchinyan TD 5 Yonnhy Perez

+
Ferocious Vic Darchinyan practically chased Yonnhy Perez out of the ring last light at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles, California, earning a technical decision after five rounds when Perez was unable to continue due to a cut suffered by a headbutt. The fight was the consolation bout for the Showtime bantamweight mini-tournament recently thrown into chaos when Joseph Agbeko was forced to withdraw from the finals against Abner Mares because of injury. But the fight was no consolation for Perez, 117 3/4, who was hammered with zeal by Darchinyan. From The Cruelest Sport

That's a grand total of...$94,663.75. In other news, Mayweather still hasn't fought in a year.
