Live Chat: UFC 157 preview, Bellator 90 discussion and more

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

The day is almost here. The moment when the UFC makes history by staging its first fight between two female competitors is but days away now and while I can't speak for anyone else, the anticipation appears to be heating up.

One the one hand I am genuinely excited. I expect a Ronda Rousey route in the main event, but I am still curious about another challenge that's hard for me to determine any outcome. That is, will she sell at the gate and even more importantly, can she sell on pay-per-view?

To this day I believe it would've made more sense to put her on FOX first then move her to pay-per-view, but what's done is done and now the big test awaits. How much can she sell? I remain agnostic, but am willing to entertain evidence-based theories one way or the other.

Lest we forget, tomorrow is Bellator 90, which is a very, very good card. Mo Lawal faces a decent challenge in Emanuel Newton, Douglas Lima squares off against Bryan Baker and Rad Martinez tries to settle unfinished business with Shahbulat Shamhalaev.

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.
