This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

Today on the program we'll react to all of yesterday's late breaking news, namely, that Yoel Romero will face Robert Whittaker at UFC 213 for the interim UFC middleweight title. In addition, while some attempts are being made to make a fight between Demetrious Johnson and T.J. Dillashaw at flyweight, Johnson is balking at the news. Should that fight be made? If yes, why? We'll discuss the implications for both weight classes as well as what it means for Michael Bisping and Georges St-Pierre.

There's also a UFC event this Sunday live from Stockholm, Sweden when Alexander Gustafsson returns to action against Glover Teixeira. We'll discuss the implications for that bout and that weight class.

Who could forget the drama and news coming out of the UFC Fighter Retreat this week as well? There's Cyborg vs. Magana, Leslie Smith talking to Kobe Bryant, Kajan Johnson vs. Reebok and much more.
