Live Chat: Jon Jones development, UFC 206 talk, Tim Kennedy and USADA, Urijah Faber's legacy

This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

Despite there being a lack of events, there's still a lot going on. For starters, it appears Jon Jones could be headed for partial exoneration. As his attorney Howard Jacobs has explained, independent USADA tests confirm he was taking a contaminated product? Will USADA and the Nevada Athletic Commission care? We'll find out. In the meantime, he's been tweeting bizarre things that indicate, at a minimum, he's competitively frustrated.

Long-time WEC and UFC veteran Urijah Faber also announced this week he's retiring. What makes him notable was not merely his record of success, but noteworthy failures. He was an entrepreneur, something of a trailblazer, a credit to combat athletes everywhere and a memorable figure.

Beyond that, Bellator signed Ralek Gracie after his brothers reportedly tried to distance themselves from his Metamoris business, Tim Kennedy this week revealed he felt compelled to shower in front of a USADA representative, UFC 206 still has no co-main event and more.

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 a special time of 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.
