Live Chat: Chael Sonnen's failed drug test, UFC 174 preview and more

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Listen to today's chat via MP3.

I'll get to this one straight away. We have to talk about Chael Sonnen and his failed drug test that is forcing him to be removed from the UFC 175 event.

TRT is arguably the defining issue of this era of fighting. It's certainly one of the chief ones, at a bare minimum. I've never seen an issue as thorny. It involves medical science, ethics, questions of oversight, promoter facilitation or rejection, the nature of competition and more. Even better, the practice has essentially been outlawed and we're still dealing with its aftermath. It's the most insane thing I've ever covered.

Lest we forget, there's also a UFC event this weekend. The flyweight title is up for grabs, Andrei Arlovski returns to the UFC, Tyron Woodley and Rory MacDonald battle for welterweight supremacy and much 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 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.
