Live Chat: Nate Diaz's return, UFC 220 and Bellator 192 in review, UFC on FOX 27

This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

In an Instagram post, Nate Diaz strongly suggested a return to the Octagon was not merely possible, but perhaps even likely. What about the timing of this from Diaz makes it stand out? Who are likely candidates for him to face? We'll explore the details.

We're also coming off of a major weekend in MMA with both Bellator 192 and UFC 220 taking place. It wasn't the best night of fights, but there was a lot to enjoy. That said, can we say either event crossed the performance benchmarks that matter?

And the train doesn't slow from here. UFC on FOX 27 is Saturday with, frankly, one of the weakest cards for that franchise in UFC history. While lacking, we'll nevertheless dig our heels into that event as well.

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 our 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.
