MMAWeekly.com has announced that the SoundOff will be back on air Tuesday, September 5th at 9 pm EST. The show went off air May 31st as SoundOff host and MMAWeekly.com co-founder Ryan Bennett passed in a tragic car accident. Since that time ‘The Fight Network’ has worked hard to get things set to put the show back on air and they’re finally ready.
The show will be hosted by Damon Martin who is a regular writer on MMAWeekly.com and he will be joined by Jeff Cain. It is still unknown whether Frank Trigg will be back.
For those of you who haven’t listen to any MMA radio, I definitely recommend checking this show out today at 9 pm. SoundOff has always been the best radio show around and with ‘The Fight Network’ running it I’m sure you can expect big things. Also unlike the Beatdown which is only on 1-2 times a week, SoundOff is a daily radio show which is streamed live Monday through Friday.

Last week the MMA community suffered a great lost when Ryan Bennett was involved in a tragic car accident that claimed his life and injured his wife and four kids. The WEC has decided to host a benefit show in Ryan Bennett’s honor with all proceeds being donated to Ryan’s wife Tonya.
MMA media personality Ryan Bennett died in a car accident on Wednesday at the age of 35. Bennett’s vehicle rolled on a Utah highway and he was pronounced dead at the scene. His wife and two children remain hospitalized. Bennett was the co-founder of MMAWeekly.com and a former UFC broadcaster.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Ryan’s family and friends…
