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 >>

There isn't merely one, but two UFC events this week. First up on the docket is tonight's UFC Fight Night 45, an event held in Atlantic City, New Jersey that is headlined by a lightweight clash between two absolute go-getters in Donald Cerrone and Jim Miller. On Saturday, the UFC moves to Dublin, Ireland for the return of featherweight phenom Conor McGregor. Can he get past Diego Brandao? Is he really the future of the division? On one level or another, we're going to get some answers. Since our read news >>

It's hard to know where to start and where to end with topics for this week's chat. There's the scintillating win by Chris Weidman over Lyoto Machida, B.J. Penn's horrible final fight, what's next for Frankie Edgar, what's next for Ronda Rousey, winners and losers from both events, poor or at least suspect judging, Stefan Struve's future and everything else you could possibly imagine. Oh, and UFC 176 was cancelled, too. There's a lot going on, so join me today to discuss all of this and more. In read news >>
