Welcome to the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat, episode 112.

Ahead of us is one of the busiest weeks in mixed martial arts in quite some time. UFC 180 takes place in Mexico City with Mark Hunt and Fabricio Werdum battling for the interim UFC heavyweight title. Dennis Bermudez looks to take the next step against Ricardo Lamas. So is Kelvin Gastelum against Jake Ellenberger.

Bellator 131 is also on Saturday, but free on Spike TV. That card features UFC Hall of Famers Tito Ortiz and Stephan Bonnar battling it out along with Michael Chandler and Will Brooks fighting over the title essentially vacated by Eddie Alvarez.

We also can't forget WSOF's lightweight title is up for grabs with Melvin Guillard facing off against Justin Gaethje, also for free on NBC Sports.

Then there's Wanderlei Silva-Bellator situation, which is as bizarre as it is important.
