This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.
In a span of just five days, the UFC lost two main events in two events. The planned UFC 197 main event between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier was scrapped after Cormier withdrew from the bout due to injury. While Ovince Saint Preux was able to step in on short notice to save the event, it's not clear what's going to happen to UFC on FOX 19. Tony Ferguson is out due to fluid in his lungs, leaving Khabib Nurmagomedov high and dry. The UFC is trying to save the event, but as of the time of this chat, nothing is yet known regarding whether the event can be saved. We'll talk about what this all means and what could be next.
Speaking of Jones and Cormier, their war of wards spilled over into social media in a way it hasn't previously. The discussion seemed poisonous and ugly, so while their bout has been pushed back, it stands to be an even bigger rematch than before.
Rampage Jackson is back against Satoshi Ishii, the UFC heads to Croatia this weekend, and much, much 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 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.
