I can only speak from personal experience and due to the volume of combat sports I watch, very little of it gets me excited or out of my chair. I can also say without hesitation UFC 166 is one such an event.
Ultimately, we'll have to see how the fights play out, but in terms of pre-fight anticipation, this one is most certainly forcing me to think about what could happen, what it all might mean and how fun it all might be. That's what a special event should and does do.
However, there's some hand wringing going on about Bellator's pay-per-view. Innumerable questions and claims are made about the event and how, if it goes poorly, it would spell the end for Bellator. None of this could be further from the truth.
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.
