This is episode 137 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

It's the live chat after Mayweather vs. Pacquiao. We can talk about that and, to some extent, I'm sure we will. Even after being over, there's still a lot to contend with in terms of boxing's future, pay-per-view, what it means for MMA and more.

But there's also more familiar combat sports to get to as well. Stipe Miocic and Mark Hunt are set to face off this weekend on a card that is not good at all, but at least the headlining bout is of serious significance. It's also one that portends fireworks.

The future of Jon Jones also continues to be a discussion topic. His manager, Malki Kawa, has said there's a chance he may never return to the UFC. I don't exactly buy that, but it was unexpected he'd even say such a thing to begin with. We'll talk about what it all means.

Lastly, there's Metamoris 6 this weekend. The card is good, but the event has not been promoted as it has in the past. There's a rumored injury in the main event and the organization is heading into this event with a bit of a damaged reputation given some of the comments made previously by Ralek Gracie. Oh, and there will be virtually no one in the audience, which is really weird.

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.
