Live Chat: Nick Diaz's situation, GLORY's future, Ronda Rousey's media day and more

This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

On today's episode, we'll discuss the late-breaking news from last night that suggests UFC welterweight/middleweight Nick Diaz could be on the verge of some kind of settlement with the Nevada Athletic Commission. The terms of any settlement aren't known, but the report indicates Diaz could be back in the cage by summer of 2016. To call that good news is an understatement.

In not so great news, Spike has dropped GLORY from their line-up. The future of the world's leading kickboxing organization in terms of finding a U.S. broadcaster isn't clear, but GLORY says the search is on. So, whose fault is it that the Spike-GLORY relationship didn't work? We'll talk it out.

Ronda Rousey also held her media day in Los Angeles yesterday ahead of UFC 193 bout opposite Holly Holm. There she deflected questions about her mother's comments about her trainer, but questions remain.

We'll further recap UFC Fight Night: Holohan vs. Smolka, talk the lawsuit against WSOF and more.
