When I jokingly said on The MMA Beat that if Nick Diaz vs. Anderson Silva was booked, I'd have to question my religious beliefs, I never thought people would take it seriously. But many did, and I'm not entirely sure I can blame them.

Diaz vs. Silva isn't the perfect superfight or the best kind of superfight that can be made. It's also arguably not even a superfight, but quibbling about the context is a useless exercise. It's the kind of fight that doesn't get made often that the game sorely lacks these days. It's also a testament to the pull of star power and why we enjoy the fighters we admire even when they're coming off of multiple losses.

But that's not until 2015. Coming up sooner rather than later is UFC 178, a card the UFC seems intent on stacking. Hear, hear. Moreover, Sherdog.com has reported UFC is trying to acquire the contract of Eddie Alvarez to book him in a bout opposite Donald Cerrone for that card.

Lest we forget, the jawing back and forth between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier is already at a crazy level.

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.
