Live Chat: UFC 159 recap, Jon Jones vs. Anderson Silva, commission talk and more


My civic duty is over. While jury duty held me up last week and prevented this lovely discussion time of ours, that's all over now. Time to get back to work. And no, we didn't find them guilty. It was a civil case.

A fair amount happened while I was away. UFC 159 took place later in the week, in all it's glory and mediocrity. There's now debate over who is the best fighter alive, even if it's premature. Either way, Jones' manhandling of Sonnen was as impressive as it was expected.

A series of gruesome and unfortunate eye pokes marred the event. In the process, they've fomented questions about whether the gloves we use or rules we implement are improper given the realities of the sport.

Leonard Garcia lost again, which means he's due for a title shot.

Oh, and Floyd Mayweather is fighting 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.
