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 >>

Welcome to episode 116 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. Quite a weekend in mixed martial arts, wasn't it? Top prospects stood out at RFA 21 and Invicta 10, but the real action took place at UFC 181. Robbie Lawler finally fulfilled the promise of his career by claiming the welterweight title on Saturday night. I scored the bout for Johny Hendricks, but am entirely sympathetic to the idea it could also be Lawler's fight. I don't think this is a judging scandal...with one exception. Anthon read news >>

Yesterday, the UFC and Reebok announced a new uniform and, as part of that, a new UFC uniform policy. Among a variety of other changes, Fighters won't be able to have their own sponsors as part of any official UFC activity, from fights to weigh-ins to 'Countdown' shows and much more. The changes won't go into effect until July of next year. In the meantime, there's a lot to unpack. We don't know what the final sum of money Reebok is offering and UFC claims they're only taking enough money from t read news >>

Never a shortage of topics, is there? It's the Wednesday after three mostly major events in the world of combat sports. Metamoris 5 took place on Saturday, with MMA stars Jake Shields and Rory MacDonald turning in respectable performances in their own right. There was a lackluster main event, but most of the card ended up having value. Manny Pacquiao defended his WBO welterweight title against Chris Algieri in Macau, China in what is one of the bigger boxing routes you'll see where someone doesn read news >>

Welcome to the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat, episode 113. Seriously, it's hard to know where to start with this given the amount of topics and issues going on in the sport. I suppose first and foremost would be actual fight results. UFC 180 saw Fabricio Werdum earn a version of UFC gold, Kelvin Gastelum cement himself as a true contender and Ricardo Lamas affirm himself as a top featherweight fixture. Bellator 131 produced sensational television ratings, crowned Will Brooks as the undispute read news >>

Welcome to episode 110 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. This weekend features not one, but two UFC Fight Night cards in far reaches of the globe. On the one hand, there's UFC Fight Night 56 in Australia, headlined by an important middleweight clash between Luke Rockhold and Michael Bisping. This seems like do or die for Bisping in terms of being a contender given his age. At the same time, Rockhold could certify himself as a future contender for champion Chris Weidman with a dominating read news >>

Welcome to episode 109 of The Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. As I previously pointed out, the UFC 179 fight card was generally not good. However, the main event was nothing short of incredible. Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes gave fight fans the kind of treat they've been looking for on Saturday night in Rio de Janeiro. Conor McGregor gave people something, too, but it was a mix of intrigue, over exposure, frustration and genuine glee. We'll talk about that largely dreadful event, the crown jewel read news >>

It wasn't exactly Daniel LaRusso and his YMCA-brand of karate getting worked by the Cobra Kai and their dirt bikes, but it was still pretty humiliating. That's according to former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre, who returned to the gym earlier this week after a long and grueling recovery from knee surgery, which came on the heels of his second blown ACL. Ariel Helwani dishes to UFC Tonight: "His coach tweeted out picture of him training. He’s been c read news >>

Welcome to episode 108 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. When it rains, it pours. After a two-week hiatus, the UFC returns this week with UFC 179, an event headlined by featherweight champion Jose Aldo and Chad Mendes. The big news at the moment, however, is that UFC heavyweight champion Cain Velasquez has injured himself yet again and has been removed from the UFC 180 fight card in Mexico. As a replacement, Mark Hunt steps in and will face Fabricio Werdum for the interim UFC heavyweight read news >>

Welcome to episode 108 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. We're in the eye of the 'time off' storm, as the break between UFC shows is halfway over. That doesn't mean, however, there's nothing going on. Anderson Silva discussed his return yesterday and what he's expecting from himself, including another potential title run. While the break is on, UFC 179 is not that far away. Even if you're not necessarily over blown by Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes, the Conor McGregor factor hangs over the en read news >>

Welcome to episode 107 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat. If you can believe it, there's no UFC this weekend. Or the next. Depending on your perspective, it's either a bad thing or a good one. I'd submit there's no such thing as being on the bad side. For starters, there's Fight Pass or your DVR or YouTube to keep you busy. There's also Bellator 128 and WSOF 14 this weekend. Moreover, part of what's enjoyable about a fight is the agony of waiting for it. It's seeing it marked on a calenda read news >>

Welcome to the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat, episode 106. Arguably the best show of the year took place on Saturday, that being UFC 178. You know it's an excellent event when you're not sure which direction to go in terms of talking points because there are so many. What about the triumphant return of Dominick Cruz? How about the perseverance of Cat Zingano? Conor McGregor did everything he said he was going to do, did he not? Where is Donald Cerrone know in the lightweight division? Or for read news >>
