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 >>

Welcome to the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat, episode 105. I'm back, y'all. Vacation was weird and wonderful (and desperately needed), but I'm back. I'm so excited to do this chat today and reconnect with all of you. In terms of discussion topics, is there any shortage? Of course not. UFC 178 is this weekend and despite losing its exquisite main event, is still a fantastic fight card in its own right. Speaking of that original main event between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier, both of those li read news >>

Welcome to the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat, episode 104. This is an insane week for MMA fans and really, combat sports enthusiasts. We're fresh off the heels of UFC 177, which as an entertainment product after the fact was decent enough (although utterly lacking as a promotional vehicle). However, we're also just two days away from three fight cards. First, UFC Fight Night 50, which is just a sensational card almost in every way. The same night is Bellator 123, which isn't nearly as strong read news >>

Welcome to the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat: Episode 103. There are number of ways to describe this weekend's UFC 177. Some of them are charitable, others are not. What we can say is measured against is some semblance of a pay-per-view standard by the UFC, this event falls dramatically short. That isn't to say there aren't salvageable pieces to it, but as a UFC product placed behind a paywall, they're going to have some issues convincing customers to cross that hurdle. But, we'll also break read news >>

There's never a slow week. Just when you think you're going to be talking about Fight Pass cards across the planet, Bellator releases arguably their most successful fighter and public figure only for said figure to sign with the UFC and be booked in an insane match-up with far reaching implications. We'll discuss why Bellator President Scott Coker did it, why it matters, what could happen if Alvarez defeats Donald Cerrone at UFC 178 and much more. But, lest we forget, there is, in fact, not one, read news >>

With all the news that breaks in between episodes, you'd think these chat were separated by weeks, not a mere seven days. Since we last did this, reports surfaced Gina Carano is in preliminary talks with Bellator while the organization itself is considering adding women. Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier said unspeakable things to one another in a leaked video from the off-air portion of their SportsCenter interview. Metamoris 4 took place and the results left us all with plenty to digest. War Machin read news >>

Well, we did it, gang. We made it all the way on this little podcast thingy of ours to episode 100. This is where I'm supposed to say 'I couldn't have done it without you' and make it sound like I mean it, but I don't really have to try. It's incontestably true. From the very beginning, it's been your questions, challenges, gripes, compliments and role as my collective partner in this operation that has enabled us to arrive at the position we are today. Given the occasion, there are some announc read news >>

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 lac read news >>

After yesterday's Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) hearing involving Vitor Belfort and Chael Sonnen, what isn't there to say? Did the punishments fit the crime? What message did the NAC really send, if any, at all? Were you surprised the UFC announced Belfort vs. Chris Weidman for UFC 181 minutes after the conclusion of Belfort's portion of the hearing? We'll break down all angles of whatever the hell that was yesterday. Of course, there was also monumental news announced this week unrelated to read news >>
