Live Chat: UFC 147 and UFC on FX 4 Previews, Pacquiao vs. Bradley Discussion

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

I'll be honest and confess I don't understand the argument that the fallout from Manny Pacquiao vs. Timothy Bradley is any meaningful help or benefit to the UFC. People aren't exactly going to start liking a new sport just because they're frustrated with an old and actually pretty different one.

Besides, most people have already sampled MMA. They already know whether they like it or not. Sure, a handful of folks might abandon boxing for MMA, but a handful is hardly anything to write home about. Oh, and let's not forget where MMA's biggest fight of the year takes place: Las Vegas, Nevada. I don't want to see any MMA fans complain if we get a terrible decision there that night. You can't gloat about the ills that plague boxing when, at least in this case, they're the same ones affecting MMA. Don't believe me? Check UFC President Dana White's Twitter feed for proof.

Join me at 1 p.m. ET as we look ahead to next week's back-to-back UFC nights with UFC on FX 4 and UFC 147. We can also talk Brock Lesnar's chances of returning to the UFC, UFC 148, changes to The Ultimate Fighter format, how a robbery like Pacquiao vs. Bradley can take place or whatever you want to talk about. The floor is yours and all questions, comments, gripes and witty retorts are welcome.

Remember: you can login to the ScribbleLive service with Facebook or Twitter. If that doesn't work for you, you can also just register a screen name with the chat service.

Talk to you at 1 p.m. ET.
