Welcome to episode 114 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

Never a shortage of topics, is there?

It's the Wednesday after three mostly major events in the world of combat sports. Metamoris 5 took place on Saturday, with MMA stars Jake Shields and Rory MacDonald turning in respectable performances in their own right. There was a lackluster main event, but most of the card ended up having value.

Manny Pacquiao defended his WBO welterweight title against Chris Algieri in Macau, China in what is one of the bigger boxing routes you'll see where someone doesn't actually get stopped.

UFC Fight Night 57 took place on Saturday as well with a whole host interesting results. Frankie Edgar is your clear top contender in the featherweight division, but will he - and should he - get the nod over Conor McGregor? That is the key question.

Paige VanZant had a breakout performance of sorts, Cub Swanson goes back to the drawing board and we all go into Thanksgiving.

You should list what you're thankful for in the world of combat sports. I'd like to read aloud the best entries.
