Live Chat: Conor McGregor fallout, Nate Diaz rumors, UFC Sydney preview

This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

Today on the podcast, we'll get into all of the news surrounding Conor McGregor. What to make of the alleged 'punishment' he received from UFC? Is his apology sincere? Does it matter? How do we evaluate referee Marc Goddard's role in all of this? We'll examine the issue front to back.

We'll also get into the rumor mongering surrounding Nate Diaz in a potential return bout against UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. Why would the UFC make that fight and what does it mean if they do?

Then there's Anderson Silva issuing a statement over being flagged by USADA, Michael Bisping fighting Kelvin Gastelum in China and more.
