This is episode 143 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

We don't usually hold the chat on Friday, but these are extraordinary times, y'all. I'm here in St. Louis for Bellator 138, an event headlined by Kimbo Slice vs. Ken Shamrock. We'll break down what we can expect from this fight, the larger card, and how success or failure can be defined.

We'll also get into UFC Fight Night 69, headlined by Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Jessica Penne for the women's strawweight title. The card itself is not great by common UFC standards, but we'll get into a title fight being on Fight Pass, Dennis Siver vs. Tatsuya Kawajiri and much more.

We'll also get into Gilbert Melendez taking on Al Iaquinta on short notice as well as other news and notes from around the world of combat sports.

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.

Be sure to link this page and use the hash tag #chatwrappers on Twitter or even Facebook when you're watching this to let everyone know you're taking part in this activity of ours.
