Live Chat: UFC 209 talk, BJ Penn's future, Nate Diaz's boxing license and more

This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

Today on the program we'll get to a variety of news items. Stipe Miocic is upset with the UFC over his paycheck, Nate Diaz is getting a boxing license in Nevada (it appears), there's been a change to the 'Brock Lesnar Rule' by the UFC in the USADA program, UFC 209's top of the card is shaping up to be quite excellent, UFC middleweight Tim Kennedy retired, B.J. Penn's future is in doubt and so much more.

Plus, Chael Sonnen returns from hiatus and makes his Bellator debut this weekend against Tito Ortiz at Bellator 170. Ortiz isn't doing much media, creating for something of a quiet exit.

Oh, and WSOF postponed a show.
