The Co-Main Event Podcast

As Ben and Chad sat down to record Co-Main Event Podcast episode 151 on Monday afternoon, the whereabouts of UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones were still unknown. Jones is sought by Albuquerque police in connection with a mid-morning hit-and-run accident that occurred on Sunday. All of this is to say, listen to the damn podcast NOW, before current events make it obsolete. In addition to Jones’ new legal woes, your intrepid hosts break down last weekend’s UFC 186, including the performances of both Demetrious Johnson and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson.

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

Luke Rockhold was the man of the hour on Saturday at UFC on Fox 15, battering Lyoto Machida en route to an important second-round victory. No surprise he continues to be the hot topic of conversation as of this week’s Co-Main Event Podcast. On Grand Ol’ Episode 150, Ben and Chad discuss Rockhold putting the clobberin’ on Machida, as well as what that means for the middleweight title picture, after Jacare Souza was forced to go slumming against Chris Camozzi. In addition to that, your dudes look ahead to UFC 186, where Demetrious Johnson once again finds himself in the worst position at the worst time.

A new week dawns for the Co-Main Event Podcast with--wait, what’s this?--Mirko Cro Cop as a potentially relevant member of the UFC heavyweight division?!? Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves, but the 40-year-old Croatian Copper did stave off his inevitable athletic demise on Saturday, with a come from behind victory over Gabriel Gonzaga. Ben and Chad take up that subject on episode 149, as well as what fans might be able to expect from UFC Fight Pass moving forward, now that the digital subscription service is well into its second year of operation. In addition, your dudes discuss Yoel Romero dropping out of UFC on Fox 15 and being replaced by Chris Camozzi against Jacare Souza. Oh yeah, and Luke Rockhold taking on Lyoto Machida in a presumed No.1 contender fight at the same event ... that should be pretty good.

If you ever wanted to jump on the mic and tell 5,000 Virginians to go f--k themselves, Al Iaquinta lived your dream last Saturday at UFC Fight Night 63. If you’ve ever wanted to jump on the mic and tell one friend to go f--ck himself while the two of you sit at your dining room table, well, the Co-Main Event Podcast lives your dream every week. On this episode, Ben and Chad talk about Iaquinta’s potty-mouthed star turn during last weekend’s event and also break down Chad Mendes’ unenviable position as (maybe) the second-best featherweight who’s ever featherweighted. Once they get done with that, they look ahead to UFC Fight Night 64 in Krakow (KRAKOW!) next weekend. Such as it it.
