Live Chat: Vitor Belfort vs. Dan Henderson 3 and Bellator 145 previews plus more

This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

Today on the chat, we finally get to look ahead to fights this weekend. First up on Friday is Bellator 145, which is a tent pole event, although lacks a bit in star power. Still, the main card has good fights, particularly the two top bouts on the card. Will Brooks defends his title against Marcin Held and Patricio Freire also puts his title on the line for the third time against Daniel Straus. Both of these should be excellent fights and we'll talk about them both.

Then on Saturday is UFC Fight Night 77, which features a third meeting between Vitor Belfort and Dan Henderson. Belfort's disgraceful interview on Inside MMA has somewhat quieted the questions about his unchecked TRT usage before his UFC 152 bout opposite Jon Jones, but to be sure, questions remain. That card also has a few other gems on it worth noting.

In news and notes, Ronda Rousey's coach has filed for bankruptcy and claims he earns no income, Tim Kennedy seems to be coming back, there's still no word on Fedor's opponent, no word (yet) on GLORY's new broadcast home, and much more news and notes.

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.
