UFC on Fox 30 looked great on paper and the fights themselves turned out to be banging on Saturday night in Calgary. Dustin Poirer defeated Eddie Alvarez in a rematch in order to become … the guy who gets to wait and see if Khabib Nurmagomedov gets injured. In other action, Jose Aldo and Joanna Jedrzejczyk both notched victories that were essentially finger wags at anybody trying to write them off. With that event in the rear view, Ben and Chad must now turn their attention to the rematch-centric UFC 227. On that card T.J. Dillashaw faces Cody Garbrandt for a second time and Demetrious Johnson meets up with Henry Cejudo once again. Because … well … it’s all anybody could think to do.

All that, plys AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

After nearly seven painstaking hours of UFC: Hamburg on Sunday, Anthony Smith made short work of Shogun Rua in their main event light heavyweight fight. Merciful, perhaps, if you were one of the superfans who sat through the whole thing, but not so for Rua himself. On this episode of the CME, Ben and Chad talk about the rise of Smith into a fun character on the 205-pound landscape, but also the politics of Shogun getting KOed at an event that felt like filler content. They also discuss the stakes of Nick Newell’s upcoming fight at Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series and next Saturday’s UFC on Fox 30 card. On Fox, Eddie Alvarez and Dustin Poirier will hook up for a rematch of their UFC 211 “no contest” and Jose Aldo faces a must win against Jeremy Stevens.

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.
