This is episode 127 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. 2015 continues to be the year of crazy, for better and for worse. UFC veteran and current Bellator fighter Josh Neer released a video of him savagely beating a personal heckler, which prompted a split reaction from the MMA community. Some were horrified at the brazen violence. Others thought an idiot who essentially requested a beating got exactly what he was requesting. There's another layer to the discussion that hasn't been had yet read news >>

This is episode 126 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. This might be one of the most important weeks in the history of the UFC. No, there isn't a big pay-per-view or apparel deal or some other business venture that proves how far the world's leading mixed martial arts promoter has come. Instead, it's about tackling the problem of weight cutting and, more specifically, performance-enhancing drugs. UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta and UFC President Dana White are set to hold a press conference toda read news >>

This is episode 125 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. What else is there to talk about but the recent rash of fighters testing positive for all manner of drugs, not least of which involve the performance-enhancing type? We already know about Anderson Silva's positive test (and even more troublesome follow-up tests that looked clean as a whistle). Now we have Hector Lombard testing positive for a designer steroid. The question isn't now isolated to what do we do about one fighter. The big read news >>

Welcome to episode 124 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. Say it ain't so, Andy. After an out-of-competition drug test in January, it appears former UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva has tested positive for not one, but two different anabolic steroids. The revelation is and should be shocking to most, fans and media alike. It's not that we don't accept a fair number of fighters in mixed martial arts are using, but to have the man many regard as the greatest fighter ever to pop - an read news >>

Welcome to episode 123 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. The UFC's banner month continues as we transition out of UFC on FOX 14 and into UFC 183, a pay-per-view event that features a main event between Anderson Silva and Nick Diaz. This bout has been labeled as everything between a superfight and a tune-up fight (for Silva). Strangely, it feels as delightfully saccharine as it is legitimate: the winner could get a title shot in either weight class. This is an anticipated main event, but read news >>

Welcome to episode 122 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. What a weird time it is in the sport, right? On the one hand, the UFC is putting their best foot forward with their best content available. They gave us a huge grudge match in Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier, a showcase of rising sensation Conor McGregor, high-end title eliminator in Alexander Gustafsson vs. Anthony Johnson and a semi-superfight with Nick Diaz vs. Anderson Silva later on. There's nothing about that that's bad. Yet, th read news >>

Welcome to episode 121 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. This is a huge weekend if you're a true combat sports fan. We all know there's UFC Fight Night: McGregor vs. Siver on Sunday. On Saturday, there's WSOF 17. On Friday, Bellator 132 kicks off on Spike TV. There's filler on all three cards, but good fights as well: Donald Cerrone vs. Benson Henderson, Patricio Freire vs. Daniel Straus, and Jake Shields vs. Brian Foster, to name a few. That's also not all. Showtime is putting together read news >>

Welcome to episode 120 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. It's never simple with Jon Jones, is it? He puts on what I'd classify as a fairly dominating performance against Daniel Cormier at UFC 182 only for news to break late Tuesday that he'd failed a December 4th drug test ordered by the NSAC. Jones tested positive for cocaine metabolites. He's since checked himself into rehab. That's news enough, but it gets weirder. The NSAC had the results on December 23rd, long before his January 3rd read news >>

Welcome to episode 119 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. This is it. The very last live chat of this year. And what better what to end this year than be discussing what could not only be an historic bout in UFC history, but one that kicks off the new year right? That, of course, is Jon Jones defending his UFC light heavyweight title against Daniel Cormier, which serves as the headlining bout of UFC 182. The rest of the card has a few intriguing bouts, but none quite like this. I actually read news >>

Welcome to episode 118 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. Well, that's it. It's the last live chat of the year. That means we should take a look back at the biggest, weirdest, most wonderful and worst stories of the year. That's everything from the return of Cat Zingano to the Reebok deal to War Machine and much more. In more contemporary news, former bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz is likely out for the year with another ACL injury, this time to his right leg (the previous two tears read news >>

Welcome to episode 117 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. UFC on FOX 13 took place on Saturday. The Ultimate Fighter 20 Finale came and went on Friday of last week. Theywere big stories. I'm sure you have questions about them. I'll answer as many as I can. Yet, I'd be disingenuous if I said these were the leading stories in the sport. They're big and we'll get to them, but it's not the most pressing matter. As you've heard by now, three (some of them former) fighters - Jon Fitch, Nate Qua read news >>
