The Co-Main Event MMA Podcast

Back to form this week for the Co-Main Event Podcast. Even though there still #aintreallyshitgoingon, Ben and Chad get deep into three rounds of mixed martial arts discussion. How is Ben holding up in the wake of his recent birthday? Can Chad make it through the show, considering his lingering cold? There’s a lot of subtext happening here. In addition to that, your dudes discuss the impending (and now official) return of Jonathan Dwight Jones, the injury mishaps that befell UFC Fight Night 76 and just Whas Really Goin’ On with the UFC’s apparel partnership with Reebok. Don’t know if y’all noticed but, man, they really stepped in it again last week.

All that plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

Another week where there #AintShitGoingOn, but the Co-Main Event Podcast bravely marches on. Pretty noble, right? Ben and Chad forge ahead into another week of listener questions. All are considered, but only the strong pass muster. On this very special GRAB BAG edition of the CME, your dudes field queries about Ronda Rousey, Ronda Rousey’s mom, Ronda Rousey’s coach and Ronda Rousey’s love life. In non-Ronda Rousey talk, they also discuss the Nick Diaz White House petition, TJ Dillashaw’s ongoing feud with Urijah Faber and when the time will be right for Bellator MMA to make its move. Plus much, much more.

All that, plus Sir Nigel Longstock stops by for MasterTweet Theatre.

It’s up to you this week, podcast pals. The Co-Main Event shifts into All Questions Considered mode for its latest episode and you know what that means--ain’t shit else going on. Ben and Chad put the trajectory of the show in your hands, answering as many of your questions as they can in one hour, fifteen minutes. As you might imagine, things get pretty random. Not only do they take your queries about Ronda Rousey, Conor McGregor, Daniel Cormier, Paige VanZant, Sage Northcutt and others, but they also talk a little Game of Thrones, the world of other podcasts and even hand out some advice for newlyweds. This is not your father’s CME podcast.

It’s all your questions all the time.

This week’s Co-Main Event Podcast is recorded in the immediate wake of UFC 192 and immediately in advance of what everyone believes will be Jon Jones’ reinstatement to the UFC. Current champion Daniel Cormier just got a big win over Alexander Gustafsson over the weekend and Ryan Bader spoiled the return of former champ Rashad Evans. So it’s pretty safe to say there’s a lot going on right now, light heavyweight-wise. Ben and Chad talk about all that stuff, as well as welterweight Johny Hendricks’ failure to make weight and the ramifications that might have on his intended opponent, Tyron Woodley.

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.
