Live Chat: UFC 219 in review, Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Conor McGregor in Tweets and more

This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

Today on the live chat (the first of 2018!), we'll go over all of the results from UFC 219. What to make of Cris Cyborg's win over Holly Holm, the ensuing fallout with the JacksonWink camp over a photo caption and who will face her next? We'll get into all of it.

Plus, Khabib Nurmagomedov looked as dominant as ever in facing and bulldozing Edson Barboza in that night's co-main event. Later on Twitter, he and UFC lightweight champion Conor McGregor had a back and forth that was both entertaining and somewhat unusual. Will or should Khabib be next for the champ or is it Tony Ferguson who deserves a crack at McGregor first? Given Ramadan's start in May, who and when will Nurmagomedov fight next?

We'll get into that plus Rizin results, Mackenzie Dern officially signing with and ready to make her UFC debut and much more.
