Live Chat: Jon Jones's next title defense, UFC Saturday recap and more


There's never a dull moment with Jon Jones, is there?

Fresh off of his UFC 172 victory over Glover Teixeira, UFC President Dana White said Jones had unfinished business with Alexander Gustafsson. By all accounts and estimations, that rematch was a foregone conclusion. There was even talk of holding it in Sweden.

Now the talk is quite different. White revealed, and Jones more or less confirmed, that Jones doesn't want to face the Swede, but Daniel Cormier instead. The reasons aren't entirely clear, although for Jones, it appears his feeling that the victory was decisive enough for him is all that matters.

We'll break down every angle of this situation.

We'll also delve into last week's UFC double header plus take a look at UFC Fight Night 42, which has a very respectable main card and a hell of a main event.

Who could forget about the Wanderlei Silva-Chael Sonnen-Vitor Belfort fiasco for UFC 175, too?

I'm sure we can talk about Bellator 121, but I'm assuming no one wants to and who can blame them?

There's a lot going on, so join me today to discuss all of this and more. In terms of today's chat, anything is up for discussion, but I will lead with this and it all kicks off at 1 p.m. ET.

As is customary, I'll post the video window here as the event draws near and I'll answer any questions you may have if you post them in the comments section below. Be sure that you click the 'rec' button for those comments/questions you believe most deserve a response.

Be sure to link this page and use the hashtag #chatwrappers on Twitter or even Facebook when you're watching this to let everyone know you're taking part is this activity of ours.

Talk with you all at 1 p.m. ET.
