Live Chat: UFC 200 main event, UFC 197 recap, Conor McGregor discussion and more

This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat, today at a special time of 12 p.m. ET (noon ET).

We don't yet know who'll headline UFC 200, but it's not that hard to figure out. Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz are not on the card and Jon Jones is the interim UFC light heavyweight champion. That means a rematch between he and Daniel Cormier, a fight UFC brass has already noted could main event the card, is the likeliest candidate. There's a presser for UFC 200 in New York directly after our live chat, so we'll offer plenty of speculation as to what the announcements can and will be.

We'll also recap what we learned from UFC 197. Is Demetrious Johnson or Jon Jones the best pound-for-pound fighter in the sport? What's gone wrong with Anthony Pettis? Was Jones's powerlifting routine a contributor to his flat performance? How far can Yair Rodriguez take things?

There's also Bellator 153 fallout, including what's next for Benson Henderson.
