Live Chat: Mayweather vs. McGregor press tour discussion, Gegard Mousasi to Bellator

This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

Today on the podcast, we'll be delving into (what else?) the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor press tour. Yesterday's stop in Los Angeles gave us our first understanding of how the two would interact. Neither man was himself. Mayweather was dialed up to 11 while McGregor was partly constrained by the event's structure. Still, there are three days left of the tour as they stop in Toronto on Wednesday. What did we learn about the two from watching them in LA? Can we expect anything different? If so, what and where?

There's also big MMA news this week with top-ranked middleweight Gegard Mousasi leaving UFC for Bellator. What does it say about both organizations that this happened? We'll explore.

Plus, last night was Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series and this weekend is both Bellator 181 and UFC Glasgow. We'll talk about these as well.
