Live Chat: UFC 199 and the wild 48 hours in mixed martial arts afterwards

This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

Beginning with the opening bout at UFC 199 and for roughly 48 hours afterwards, the sport of mixed martial arts went crazy. Inside the Octagon, Michael Bisping defeated Luke Rockhold in the easiest fight of his career, Dan Henderson and Urijah Faber had potentially fought for the last time and more. Outside of the Octagon, Brock Lesnar was reported to be coming back to the UFC, Conor McGregor vs. Nate Diaz 2 was made official and Kimbo Slice died. A reporter, videographer and photographer from this site were thrown out of UFC 199, lost their credentials, literally made international headlines and then were reinstated.

To put it mildly, it's been insane and there's so much to discuss.

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 a special time of 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.
