Episode 43 of the Co-Main Event Podcast finds Ben and Chad just trying to wrap their arms around all the awesome happenings of UFC 158 and hug it all so, so tight. Maybe all the excitement goes to their heads, as at one point Ben relates the story of being locked out of his hotel by a “manifestation” in the streets of Montreal and at another, Chad tries out his new Johny Hendricks impression. Once they get down to brass tacks, the guys talk up the not-so-dark, not-so-scary appearance of Georges St. Pierre’s dark place, the (possible) end of the strange saga of Nick Diaz (his retirement, his demands of a rematch, his dreams of a fight with Anderson Silva and, oh yeah, his taxes) as well as the notion that Hendricks might well be the guy to finally wrench the title from St. Pierre’s pampered-up, manicured grasp.
All that, plus AYFKM, Just Sayin’ Stuff and Listener Mail.
