It's not as crazy as last week, but things are heating up in the MMA world. The UFC returns to action in Canada this weekend, this time with a sensational main event between Rory MacDonald and Stephen Thompson. Bellator and WSOF are also in action with a handful of fights worth observing.

Fedor Emelianenko caused a stir this week when he said he was close to signing with the UFC. Is this true and more importantly, what does it mean if he does sign? We'll explore the possibilities.

Bo Jackson doesn't know who Brock Lesnar is, Michael Bisping wants Dan Henderson for his first title defense, the UFC could be close to finalizing a sale and more. We'll talk about all of this 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 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.

Be sure to link this page and use the hash tag #chatwrappers on Twitter or even Facebook when you're watching this to let everyone know you're taking part in this activity of ours.
