This is the Promotional Malpractice Live Chat.

On today's podcast, we'll go into detail on the UFC defying expectations and scoring not just a deal with ESPN's OTT service, but linear ESPN. The TV ESPN. A deal is expected to be announced today for $1.5 billion for five years for exclusive rights to UFC content on the ESPN networks. What does this mean and how did we get here? We'll explore.

Plus, UFC Liverpool is this weekend. What can we expect from the event and what's important to look out for? We'll go over the details.
