Welcome to episode 110 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

This weekend features not one, but two UFC Fight Night cards in far reaches of the globe. On the one hand, there's UFC Fight Night 56 in Australia, headlined by an important middleweight clash between Luke Rockhold and Michael Bisping. This seems like do or die for Bisping in terms of being a contender given his age. At the same time, Rockhold could certify himself as a future contender for champion Chris Weidman with a dominating performance.

The very next day back in Brazil, UFC light heavyweight Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua will square off with Ovince St. Preux. That wasn't the original bout as Jimi Manuwa was supposed to face off against the Brazilian, but injuries forced a change. Either way, Rua is in interesting territory in terms of what's left in his career.

We also can't forget GLORY 18 is also on Friday with that organization's lightweight title on the line.
