This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.
Today on the podcast, we'll go over the complete and utter insanity that is the revelation by Paulie Malignaggi that Al Haymon has spoken to Dana White about a potential Conor McGregor vs. Malignaggi boxing bout. It is insane that this is a real possibility unless it's merely a leverage play for the UFC lightweight champion. Either way, the rumors about the bout have raised serious issues about fan preference, preference vocalization and more.
After a quiet weekend, there's also two MMA events of note this weekend. First, Bellator 185 will feature the return of Heather Hardy and the organizational debut for Gegard Mousasi. Second, UFC Gdansk promises a solid welterweight main event between Donald Cerrone and Darren Till. We'll talk about both cards.
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.
