Live Chat: UFC 226, PPV buys, Daniel Cormier vs. Brock Lesnar, more

This is the new MMA Fighting Live Chat.

Today on the show, we’ll talk fall out from UFC 226, including Daniel Cormier’s standing among the greatest of all-time as the new UFC heavyweight champion, Cormier’s pro-wrestling-reminiscent confrontation with Brock Lesnar after beating Stipe Miocic and the surprising, disappointing early news about pay-per-view buys.

We’ll also talk about the other important storylines coming out of International Fight Week, touching on Francis Ngannou vs. Derrick Lewis, big wins from Anthony Pettis and Mike Perry, Israel Adesanya’s coming out party and more. The list goes on.

In addition, UFC Boise is coming up Saturday with a big heavyweight fight in the main event pitting Junior dos Santos and Blagoy Ivanov. Bellator has a pair of cards to boot, in Rome and Thackerville, Okla.

There is plenty to talk about, so join us to discuss all of the above and much more. All is up for discussion, but we’ll lead off with this. The chat will start at our time of 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT.

Like Luke Thomas before us, we’ll post the video window as the event draws near and answer any questions you might have if you post them in the comments below. For the comments you deem the most deserving, please click the "rec" button. Comments in green will get first priority.

Please link this page and use the hashtag #chatwrappers on Twitter when you’re watching to tell everyone you’re taking part with us.
