The Sherdog Radio Network may still not be live, however Monday brought a jam packed edition of "Beatdown" to the masses.

Jack Encarnacao and Jon Luther returned to The SRN in taped form Monday. On the program were MMA personalities involved in this Sunday's UFC Live 5 card in Milwaukee.

Despite coming off of a loss to UFC 133 victor Brian Ebersole, Chris Lytle finds himself in the main event Sunday night against Dan Hardy. "Lights Out" chatted with Jack and Jon about the welterweight showdown. Lytle also expounds on the age old question if it's better to win or be entertaining in mixed martial arts.

Team Alpha Male product Joseph Benavidez faces Eddie Wineland Sunday night in a bantamweight matchup. Benavidez breaks down the upcoming bout and if he feels it's a benefit having his teammate Urijah Faber hold a win over the Illinois native. Joseph also talks about possibly moving down to 125 pounds in the future and if he keeps an eye on the budding division.

Cole Miller looks to prove that he "doesn't suck" Sunday night in Milwaukee. The American Top Team product dives in to his matchup with T.J. O'Brien with Encarnacao and Luther. "Megrinho" also reveals his aspirations for moving back down to featherweight in the future.

Fighters aren't the only men involved on UFC Live 5 card. AMA Fight Club trainer Mike Constantino will be in the corner of UFC lightweight contender Jim Miller as he takes on former WEC lightweight champion Benson Henderson.
