The Co-Main Event Podcast

Even with no UFC event scheduled for this next weekend, the Co-Main Event Podcast has plenty to talk about. On this episode, Ben and Chad break down Max Holloway’s anti-climactic win over Charles Oliveira from the main event of UFC Fight Night 74 and discuss the literal ins and outs of the often overlooked but vitally important esophagus. They also look into Michael Bisping spoiling much of the positive political capital he’d built up recently when he questioned the cojones of sudden UFC retiree Frankie Perez. In addition, they discourse on Ronda Rousey’s newly announced bout with Holly Holm.

All that, plus AYFKM, Just Sayin’ Stuff and MasterTweet Theatre.

By now, the cat is probably well out of the bag that there is no new CME this week, after Ben decided to go on vacation with his family to some mountain lake. Just picture him, swinging comfortably in his hammock sipping Jameson, not a care in the world as his bedraggled wife chases their two children around the cabin, trying to keep them from eating rat poison or tumbling down a set of stairs. Meanwhile, Old Man Fowlkes sways in the breeze, oblivious.

But look, Ben and Chad didn’t want to leave you high and dry this week with no CME-related entertainment at all. For that reason, they’ve planned a special announcement regarding NEXT week’s podcast, as well as a chance for you to revisit one of the more unique and popular single episodes in the show’s history.

What’s the announcement, you ask? Wouldn’t you like to know, you grubby little orphans. To find out, you’ll have to experience it in audio format ...

The MMA world will get a chance to catch its breath this weekend, or maybe come down from the weird herky-jerky meth high that was watching Glover Teixeira choke Ovince St. Preux unconscious on Saturday at UFC Fight Night 73. This coming weekend will be the first Saturday in some time without a UFC event, so now is your chance to take your kid to the zoo, maybe sit down and have dinner with your people, like a real damn family.  Unfortunately, since we know you guys, we know you’ll spend it watching old King of Cage events on Fight Pass. Ben and Chad will be here for you, though, because Ben and Chad will always be here to discuss things like Teixeira’s prospects, Ronda Rousey’s suddenly Robust-ish contender crowd and the latest effort to unionize UFC fighters.

All that, plus AYFKM, Just Sayin’ Stuff and MasterTweet Theatre.

Rondamania is running wild as Ben and Chad sit down to record episode No. 165 of the venerable old Co-Main Event Podcast. It’s no wonder that the UFC’s dominant women’s bantamweight champion dominates much of the conversation this week, just as Ronda Jean Rousey dominated the shit out of Bethe Correia last Saturday at UFC 190. Your dudes break down the actual fight and the terrifying possibility that the competitive gap between Rousey and her peers is actually widening, then attempt to deal with her budding superstardom and whether the UFC can keep the Ronda Train rolling if she continues to pick the bones of one of its shallowest divisions. Also, you didn’t think crazy-ass SOB Rousimar Palhares was going to escape notice, did you? Oh, because the CME has some shit to say about that dude, too.

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Saying Stuff.
