Welcome to episode 117 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

UFC on FOX 13 took place on Saturday. The Ultimate Fighter 20 Finale came and went on Friday of last week. Theywere big stories. I'm sure you have questions about them. I'll answer as many as I can.

Yet, I'd be disingenuous if I said these were the leading stories in the sport. They're big and we'll get to them, but it's not the most pressing matter.

As you've heard by now, three (some of them former) fighters - Jon Fitch, Nate Quarry and Cung Le - filed a class-action lawsuit in California against Zuffa (and the UFC) alleging the company engaged in illegal anticompetitive activity, hindering growth in the industry, suppressing fighter wages and more. We'll break down exactly what the plaintiffs in this case are alleging, what they want, what could happen and what this all means.

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.
