It's very rare that I lead chat discussion with Bellator news and notes, but this week is one such time where that makes sense. MMA's number two organization does their best to recover from their abrupt albeit temporary pivot away from pay-per-view after the cancellation of Tito Ortiz vs. Quinton Jackson.
The reality, despite the hemming and hawing from some fans and media online, is a great card. I don't know if it was ever pay-per-view ready, but it's more than a fine fit for Spike TV.
The questions I have are: will Tito Ortiz finally go away? Who is next for Rampage? Why is Bellator rushing to pay-per-view? And perhaps most importantly, why does everyone seem to not understand a thing about Bellator?
We'll, of course, get to all UFC news and notes.
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.
