The Co-Main Event Podcast

Welp, here it is, CME Universe, the last episode of the Co-Main Event Podcast where you have to listen to Chad and Ben spend any significant time talking about Mayweather-McGregor. And really, is that so wrong? Heck, the damn fight turned out to be more fun than anyone expected, with Conor McGregor outperforming everyone’s expectations and Floyd Mayweather letting him do it for as long as he felt like it (but not a second longer). So this week your dudes talk about McGregor’s surprising performance as well as what’s next for the UFC lightweight champion. A UFC lightweight championship defense perhaps? LOL. Don’t make them laugh. Oh, also, your dudes hold heartbreaking discussion on Jon Jones’ lastest positive drug test and spend some cursory time contemplating this weekend’s UFC Fight Night.

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

Well, Co-Mainiacs, here we are. The moment is upon us. History unfolds before our very eyes. On this week’s Co-Main Event Podcast, Ben and Chad take a last, pre-fight look at the boxing match pitting Floyd Mayweather against Conor McGregor. How did we get here? How will it go? What’s next for the UFC lightweight champion and the fight company’s biggest draw? All of this stuff gets discussed. Don’t worry though, MMA purists, some of mixed-rules fighting’s biggest weekly headlines see the light of day as well. Junior dos Santos flagged by USADA? Masvidal vs. Wonder Man? Matt Brown vs. Diego Sanchez? All this stuff is on the schedule.

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Saying Stuff.

Perhaps you thought it was an ain’t shit going on kind of week, eh Universe? If that’s what you did anticipate, Ben and Chad don’t blame you. With the UFC clearing the lane for Aug. 26’s Mayweather vs. McGregor boxing match the waters are relatively quiet in the MMA world. Still, there was #enoughshitgoinon that your dudes managed to fill three rounds with it for this episode of the Co-Main Event Podcast. For starters they try to break down all the relevant storylines suddenly cropping up with just 12 days to go before Mayweather-McGregor. In addition to that, they talk about Ben’s latest story on MMA Junkie, about whether UFC fighters should still be considered independent contractors. On top of that, Georges St-Pierre’s middleweight title shot against Michael Bisping is now official for UFC 217, so you better believe that also gets some consideration.

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

Did you enjoy UFC Fight Night 114, CME Universe? Your dudes Ben and Chad hope you did because that’s all the live MMA action inside the Octagon that you’re going to get between now and Sept. 2. Fortunately, you’ll be able to fill you empty weeks listening to dudes TALK about fighting, at least. On this episode, for example, the guys turn their attention to big wins for Sergio Pettis and Alexa Grasso on the UFN 114 card. In addition to that they discuss the budding feud between Conor McGregor and boxer-turned-sparring-partner Paulie Maglignaggi. The Magic Man! They also take a long moment to consider August and whether it’s a good or bad thing that the month will give fans a break in the UFC’s hard-charging live event schedule.

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