This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

Today on the podcast, we'll look at the latest report from Variety magazine on the UFC's next television deal. What do we make of what was reported? Will fans have to pay for another streaming service? Is being on ESPN+ that prestigious? We'll discuss.

Plus, UFC Atlantic City is this coming weekend. The card is actually not bad and worthy of examining for both the lightweight and featherweight divisions.

In addition, Bellator's ratings for Bellator 197 were low to the point of being worrisome for the health and future of the organization. What's going wrong for the Viacom product? We'll get into the details.
