Between the Links returns ahead of a busy weekend in the world of MMA.

Host Mike Heck is joined by MMA Fighting’s Jed Meshew and Damon Martin as they battle it out for a week’s worth of bragging rights.

This week, the panel discusses Dustin Poirier’s appearance on The MMA Hour and what the chances could be that he will face Nate Diaz next over a title shot against Charles Oliveira, Gegard Mousasi’s successful middleweight title defense against John Salter at Bellator 264 and where he ranks at 185 pounds worldwide, Ray Cooper III’s dominant win over Rory MacDonald at PFL 7, this Saturday’s UFC Vegas 34 card in the promotion’s return from a brief hiatus—scheduled to be headlined by Jared Cannonier vs. Kelvin Gastelum—the under the radar fight of the weekend, and more.
