This is episode 141 of the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.
Today we're going live just after the UFC Marketing and Development presser, which means we're pushing back our start time by two hours. This presser is supposed to cover the latest in what will be the new drug testing program with Jeff Novitzky as well as much more related to fighter health (and who knows what else on the 'marketing' side of things). We'll have immediate reaction to all of it once it's over.
We'll also look ahead to UFC Fight Night 68, featuring Tim Boetsch vs. Dan Henderson as well as Ben Rothwell vs. Matt Mitrione, among other fights. It's far from the strongest card, but it's happening, so we'll take a look. We'll also look back at Carlos Condit vs. Thiago Alves and more from UFC Fight Night 67 this past weekend.
Last, but certainly not least, we'll probably cover Jose Aldo discussing why he doesn't like the Reebok deal. This is significant since he is the first champion to openly criticize the program.
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 3 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.
