UFC 216 comes our way this weekend from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The event will go on, the UFC says, just days after the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history struck the Las Vegas strip. It casts a macabre shadow from which to try to view an evening of MMA action, but that’s where we are in this country at the moment. On this episode of the CME, Ben and Chad look at Demetrious Johnson finally getting his chance to break Anderson Silva’s record for consecutive UFC title defenses. They also talk about Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee squaring off for an interim lightweight title and perhaps the opportunity to be a future opponent for Conor McGregor. Speaking of McGregor, the fighting Irishman made his first public appearance since losing to Floyd Mayweather in a boxing match. He had some ideas about who he’ll fight next. A lot of ideas, actually.
All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.
