Between the Links returns with a historical matchup ahead of a bustling weekend in the world of mixed martial arts.

Host Mike Heck will oversee a tag team matchup this week as Jed Meshew teams up with fellow reporter Fernanda Prates to take on the pairing of Shaun Al-Shatti and Jose Youngs.

This week, the panel discusses Anderson Silva’s successful return to the boxing ring over Julio Caesar Chavez Jr. and if it was a win for MMA, what could be next for “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung after his UFC Vegas 29 main event win over Dan Ige and if another crack at the featherweight title could happen, the chances Nate Diaz could jump the queue into a welterweight title fight with Kamaru Usman, and the most interesting event of the weekend between UFC Vegas 30, Bellator 261 and PFL 6.

Who will emerge victorious in the first two-on-two BTL matchup? Find out at 6 p.m. ET / 3 p.m. PT on Thursday, June 24.
