Chat Wrap: Sonnen-Shogun talk, Rampage to Bellator discussion and UFC on FUEL TV 10 preview

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

When it rains, it pours.

Some week's there isn't a ton to discuss. Others, like this one, are filled to the brim with all sorts of juicy topics.

First, we have news that Chael Sonnen will headline the first UFC on FOX Sports 1 card opposite Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua. It's not the worst fight ever, although an odd choice for a headliner.

Then word came down UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson - fresh off of picking up his Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt - will be defending his UFC title against T.J. Grant at FC 164.

Oh, and who can forget there's a UFC event this weekend, UFC on FUEL TV 10?

We're not even mentioning Bellator's signing of Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson as well as Bubba Jenkins.

And I must mention Sunday's Metamoris 2 event, which this site will be covering in detail on Sunday evening.

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.
