Here it is: the first live chat of 2013. That means the order of business will be recapping the final UFC event of the year as well as grading everything we saw in 2012. To help facilitate discussion, I'd ask that you grade the year in MMA in the poll at the bottom of this post.
But we can't just look back. The train continues to roll on as we have Invicta FC 4 this weekend and Strikeforce directly after. Last, but not least, UFC 156 the fist weekend in February. Past is prologue in MMA, which means all the fights you could possibly handle and then some.
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.
