Live Chat: UFC 162 preview, Bellator 96 talk, 'Fight Master' discussion and more

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

Sure, there's no UFC event this weekend. There's not even a UFC event next weekend, but as is usually the case, it'd be foolish to think there's nothing going on in the world of MMA.

For starters, UFC 162 is already heating up. The trailer the UFC released hyping the event actually does a good job of selling the fight on the terms it needs to be sold. And as we begin to ponder the possibilities of what could happen, we begin to grasp the enormity of the occasion.

There are also fights tonight. Bellator returns with the launch of their Summer Series, which includes the likes of Muhammed Lawal, War Machine, Seth Petruzelli, Renato Sobral and others.

Last, but certainly not least, Bellator's reality show kicks off tonight. I've seen the entire first episode. To say it's different than The Ultimate Fighter would be an understatement.

Oh yeah, GLORY also holds an event in New York City this weekend.

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.
