Nothing like watching a couple of 135-pound dudes try to rearrange each other’s faces for 25 minutes to get you primed for another week of talking about mixed rules fighting, right, Universe? Oh, yeah, and by “135-pound dudes” we mean 135-pound-ish, since by now you all know that John Lineker showed up overweight for his main event bout against John Dodson at UFC Fight Night 96. This makes five times that Lineker has missed weight for a UFC fight, and in two different weight classe--which is like truly some lifetime-achievement type shit when you think about it. Speaking of lifetime achievements, also on this episode of the Co-Main Event Podcast, Ben and Chad talk about the surprising success of Michael Bisping headed into his UFC 204 title defense against Dan Henderson. Oh, also, did you hear Conor McGregor found himself another fight? You won’t believe what happens next!
All that, plus AYFKM and JSS.
