We're still basking in the glow of UFC 198 and the crazy event it was. Cris Cyborg made her UFC debut, Ronaldo Souza moved into the top contender spot (arguably) at middleweight, Bryan Barberena proved tougher than anyone thought and Stipe Miocic became the UFC heavyweight champion of the world. What went wrong with Fabricio Werdum? Who is the greatest heavyweight of all time? We'll talk about all of these results and more.

Then there's UFC 199's main event, which is now gone. It was supposed to be a rematch between champion Luke Rockhold and challenger Chris Weidman, but Weidman pulled out due to injury. That marks the fourth time in 25 months he's pulled out of a bout due to injury. What does this mean for the event? What does this mean for Weidman's career and future? We'll get into the details.

Last, but not least, there's a Bellator event on Friday, Bellator 155. Their middleweight title is up for grabs, plus there's a great featherweight contender bout.

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.
