UFC 165 wrap-up, Silva vs. Weidman rematch talk, Bellator 101 preview and more

Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sport

Well, that Saturday fight was a bit unexpected. No one suspected Jon Jones vs. Alexander Gustafsson would be a bad fight, but I'm not sure many can claim to have known it'd be quite that good. Naturally, the scoring is controversial, but that just means we have more to talk about.

Bellator's last show was decent and the upcoming one has the potential to be good. More importantly, the ratings on Friday night have been surprisingly good. I'm not really sure why, though.

There's also tons of loose ends to consider: the Silva vs. Weidman rematch press tour, GLORY 10 is this weekend, 'Big' John McCarthy blasts the inestimably great Keith Kizer and more.

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 3 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 3 p.m. ET.
