This is episode 128 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

UFC 184 was in the books and like most MMA events these days, it was anything but ordinary. UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey not only defeated Cat Zingano, but did so in a mere 14 seconds (or less depending on whom you ask). That means Rousey isn't just miles ahead of her bantamweight contemporaries, but light years. It's borderline unfair to ask them to face her. We'll break down everything that happened and what it means for the future.

The fallout of the bout has also been interesting to follow. Rousey's greatness is so unique and so astounding that sports media and fans are having a hard time putting it all into context. Is she the new generation's Mike Tyson? Can she beat other men? Is that an unfair question.

We'll also talk about Cris Cyborg's future, a slew of fights that have been announced, what's ahead on the MMA schedule, Quinton Jackson's new court battle with Bellator and more.
