Live Chat: UFC Fight Night weekend preview, GLORY 17 recap and more


There's a double header of UFC content again this week, although this one is spaced far more apart than the previous attempt. We'll have a show from New Zealand in the very early morning here stateside followed by a Fox Sports 1 show headlined by a featherweight clash between Cub Swanson and Jeremy Stephens. There are a few other decent fights sprinkled in between the two cards.

Glory 17 and Last Man Standing (technically speaking, two different shows) are in the books. Artem Levin looks to simply be untouchable at middleweight, the Americans actually had a decent showing and Rico Verhoeven is undoubtedly heavyweight's best kickboxer.

We also have a few other issues floating about: UFC President Dana White wants to induct the entire first cast of The Ultimate Fighter into the UFC Hall of Fame, Metamoris might? end up on Fight Pass, GSP won't commit to a return to the Octagon yet and more.

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.
