We're days past UFC 196: Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz and we're all still absorbing what the results mean. Did McGregor manage his weight improperly? Is he too enamored with his own power to fully develop his striking? Does he need to bring in better training partners? Or, is this all a big overreaction? We'll discuss his future plus what Diaz can expect in the way of big main events for his foreseeable future.

Then there's the women's bantamweight division. UFC President Dana White suggested Holly Holm's management failed her. It also looks like Miesha Tate will make her first title defense against Ronda Rousey. Is that the right call? Is Holm's loss bad or good for the division?

Their fight isn't for another month, but things are already heating up between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier. Will Cormier shock the world and defend his crown or is Jones simply too much and ready to take back what used to be his?

We'll talk about all of these issues plus your questions and comments.
