Welcome to the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat: Episode 103.
There are number of ways to describe this weekend's UFC 177. Some of them are charitable, others are not. What we can say is measured against is some semblance of a pay-per-view standard by the UFC, this event falls dramatically short. That isn't to say there aren't salvageable pieces to it, but as a UFC product placed behind a paywall, they're going to have some issues convincing customers to cross that hurdle. But, we'll also break down the fights, too.
We are also on the heels of two UFC Fight Nights. That means we have to figure out what's next for Michael Bisping, Rafael dos Anjos and other winning fighters. Figuring out where the losers go is worth a mention, too.
The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America is out. I watched the first episode and will tell you what I discovered.
Oh, and hey, Ben Askren fights for a ONE FC title this weekend.
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.
