The Co-Main Event Podcast

An unexpectedly busy MMA weekend leaves the Co-Main Event Podcast with plenty to talk about this week. Donald Cerrone dropped to 1-4 in his last five after a hotly contested unanimous decision loss to Leon Edwards at UFC: Singapore. So, why do Ben and Chad feel like he’s embodying the “Cowboy” mystique more than ever? Plus, the Professional Fighters League showed off its wares and Bellator made a flurry of intriguing moves. Could it be that the two smaller organizations are outmaneuvering the UFC in the short term? Oh yeah, plus UFC 226 is coming up in a couple weeks. That show is so damn big your dudes have no choice but to start breaking it down a little early.

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

With Chad newly returned from his family trip, the CME is back to its normal schedule this week with a lot of stuff to catch up on. Firstly, there was UFC 225, which included big wins from Robert Whittaker, Colby Covington, Holly Holm and others. Chad and Ben spend a good chunk of this show talking about that event. Also, there was the Dana White Tuesday Night Contender Series, which saw disgraced former NFL player Greg Hardy score a UFC developmental deal after a 57-second knockout win. Oh yeah, the guys also set a very appropriate date for the next installment of the CME book club and announce some exciting upcoming giveaways. It’s truly something you won’t want to miss.

UFC 225 is right around the corner, so this week’s Co-Main Event Podcast largely concerns itself getting you ready for that event. What does middleweight champion Robert Whittaker have to prove--or gain--fighting Yoel Romero a second time? Is Colby Covington actually getting over on us with his “heel” gimmick? Does Alistair Overeem have legitimate beef for being left off the pay-per-view portion of the card? Oh, yeah--and CM Punk. What … exactly … can … we … expect … from … him? And do we care? Plus, you know Ben just returned from a weekend jaunt to Wyoming, where he took in some bare knuckle boxing. So Chad makes sure we all get to that bottom of that little pleasure cruise. Why? Because the CME Universe deserves it, that’s why

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.
