This is the big one, folks and it doesn't require a ton of explanation. Starting tomorrow (Thursday), the UFC is going to begin staging the first of three back-to-back-to-back events on consecutive days. This is the first time the organization has tried this in its history.

Tomorrow we'll be treated to a Fight Pass show headlined by Rose Namajunas vs. Paige VanZant. The rest of the card is decent, especially for a show exclusively streamed online.

Friday is the finale for The Ultimate Fighter. That show is headlined by a featherweight contender match up between Frankie Edgar and Chad Mendes. The winner is, ostensibly, supposed to get the winner of the UFC 194 main event.

Lastly, there's the crown jewel of everything: Jose Aldo vs. Conor McGregor and the main card that goes with it on pay-per-view. The UFC 194 main card might be the best main card ever in UFC or MMA history.

If you're a true fight fan, there's quite a bit to like here. We'll talk about all of it on today's chat.
