Live Chat: Chael Sonnen and Vitor Belfort NAC hearing recap, Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier preview and more

After yesterday's Nevada Athletic Commission (NAC) hearing involving Vitor Belfort and Chael Sonnen, what isn't there to say? Did the punishments fit the crime? What message did the NAC really send, if any, at all? Were you surprised the UFC announced Belfort vs. Chris Weidman for UFC 181 minutes after the conclusion of Belfort's portion of the hearing?

We'll break down all angles of whatever the hell that was yesterday.

Of course, there was also monumental news announced this week unrelated to that. Jon Jones will now face Daniel Cormier after Alexander Gustafsson suffered a knee injury in training. Fresh off of his win over Diego Brandao, Conor McGregor is set to face Dustin Poirier. Both of those fights, mind you, are on the same card.

And maybe, just maybe, the UFC will announce the signing of Gina Carano this week.

Oh! Bellator is on Friday, too.

There's a lot going on, so join me today to discuss all of this and more. In terms of today's chat, anything is up for discussion, but I will lead with this and it all kicks off at 1 p.m. ET.

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.

Be sure to link this page and use the hashtag #chatwrappers on Twitter or even Facebook when you're watching this to let everyone know you're taking part is this activity of ours.

Talk with you all at 1 p.m. ET.
