It's as if UFC 186 has already been forgotten, isn't it? What a crazy week in the sport. Former (!!!!) UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones has been stripped of his title, removed from his title fight from UFC 187 and is now facing felony hit-and-run charges in his new home state of New Mexico. This is an absolutely stunning development. What does this mean for Jones' future? Does the UFC have the authority to do this? Will this work to send Jones a wake-up call? There are so many implications to what's happening here. We'll break them all down.

I'm also in Las Vegas this week for the mega fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather. I thought Mayweather vs. Canelo Alvarez was big and it was, but that was more along the lines of a traditional boxing event. This is something the likes of which I've never ever seen. I can't believe how big this thing is going to be. We'll talk about this as well today.

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.
