Today on the podcast, we'll look ahead at UFC 225. There are a million great fights on the card even outside of the two title fights at the top. Plus, Phil Brooks (CM Punk) won a defamation case just yesterday in Chicago, which is a hell of a thing to overcome during fight week. We'll get into all of it.

We're also dealing with the news that UFC President Dana White wants to get rid of the early weigh-ins. Is that good or bad? We'll discuss.

We're also coming off of a UFC Utica from Friday night. With the notable exception of the main event and a few other fights, it was a really bad card.

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.
