The Co-Main Event MMA Podcast

Just so much news this week that is right in the Co-Main Event Podcast’s wheelhouse, you guys. Seriously, sometimes it seems like the MMA Gods are scripting this shit just so Ben and Chad can poke fun of it on their unscripted weekly podcast. From Jose Aldo’s broken, not broken ribs to Yoel Romero maybe, possibly warning people not to go with “Gay Jesus,” this week was a doozy. But the MMA world’s depressing unbelievable weirdness is your gain. On this episode, your dudes talk up all that stuff, plus wonder about the future of the 37-year-old Lyoto Machida, who dropped to 1-3 in his last four at the hands of Romero last Saturday.

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

Call episode 159 of the Co-Main Event Podcast the first of the Kimbo Slice Era of mixed martial arts. Errr, wait, the second Kimbo Slice Era of mixed martial arts? Whatever. The Sliceman knocked Ken Shamrock into the black land on Friday at Bellator 138, setting promotional cable television ratings records and making us all kind of feel bad about ourselves for watching. In the aftermath of The Greatest Fight of All Time, many people have cried “fix!” because, well, they were looking for ways to seem like bigger suckers than just watching the thing in the first place. In other news, your girl Joanna JÄ™drzejczyk laid a straight up Eastern European beatdown on Jessica Pe-NAY on Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 69. Ben and Chad talk about that, and then look ahead to Lyoto Machida vs. Yoel Romero at next weekend’s Fight Night 70. Cuz this shit just never stops, you know?

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

The Co-Main Event Podcast bows down before new UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum this week. Werdum defeated Cain Velasquez as something approaching a 5-to-1 underdog on Saturday at UFC 188 and at this stage Ben and Chad can only marvel at how it all seemed like too much for Velasquez--the altitude, the layoff, Werdum’s all-around skills. In addition to that, your guys discuss Eddie Alvarez’s amazing comeback performance against Gilbert Melendez in the evening’s lightweight co-main. And that’s about it. Oh, wait. What’s that you say? Ken Shamrock and Kimbo Slice are also fighting this coming Friday? You didn’t think the CME was going to record a whole episode and NOT spend a round talking about that … did you? … like some suckers? Nah, you guys know better than that.

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

In order to record this week’s episode of the CME, Ben interrupts a madcap schedule of dancing to indie rock bands and Chad pauses his white-knuckle wait for the birth of his son. Really, they have no choice. What, you thought they were going to ignore Old Man Dan Henderson’s big win over Tim Boetsch last Saturday at UFC Fight Night 68? You thought they might not catch the UFC announcing the very sort of drug testing program the CME has been asking for for years? You thought Cain Velasquez’s heavyweight title unification bout against Fabricio Werdum this weekend at UFC 188 might fly under their radar? Fat chance. The guys serve of an hour’s worth of sizzling hot MMA news and commentary just for you. 

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

Picture it, CME Universe. There you are, walking along, minding your own business, just doing your thing, landing your low kicks, everything going your way, when--boom--all of the sudden Carlos Condit jumps out of nowhere and elbows you … right … in … the ... face. That would suck, wouldn’t it? Yeah, that would suck. Also, in this situation, you are Thiago Alves (Pronounced: AL-vez, it turns out). This week, the Co-Main Event Podcast follows the re-routed road map that was Alves’ face after his bout with Condit last Saturday at UFC Fight Night 67, and takes a few moments to mourn the testicles of Ryan Jimmo, which had arguably an even shittier night than Alves’ nose. In addition, Ben and Chad look ahead to next weekend’s Fight Night 68, where Dan Henderson will fight Tim Boetsch for some damn reason.

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