Welcome to episode 108 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

We're in the eye of the 'time off' storm, as the break between UFC shows is halfway over. That doesn't mean, however, there's nothing going on.

Anderson Silva discussed his return yesterday and what he's expecting from himself, including another potential title run.

While the break is on, UFC 179 is not that far away. Even if you're not necessarily over blown by Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes, the Conor McGregor factor hangs over the entire thing.

And who could forget to discuss Mike Goldberg? After being gifted an opportunity to call a NFL game, he finds a way to blow the entire opportunity.

Oh, and while Bellator 129 this week isn't the biggest show they've ever done, it does mark the return of women's fights to the organization.
