Roop returns to the Octagon on March 16 as part of UFC 158, where he’ll face Reuben Duran. The Arizona native has been away from the cage for over a year due to injuries. Roop discussed the layoff, how he feels he has improved because of the time off, and whether he feels pressure coming off back-to-back losses.
Volkmann was one of the more notable names in a recent 16-fighter layoff by the UFC. “Christmas” talked with TJ and Jeff about his feelings on being cut by Zuffa, his efforts to land a job with Bellator MMA, and where his head is at after signing with the World Series of Fighting.
