Episodically speaking, the Co-Main Event Podcast turns 40 this week, amid the rush that was Saturday nightâ€™s UFC 157 and the advance jitters of next weekendâ€™s show at Saitama Super Arena. Ben and Chad celebrate accordingly, talking up Ronda Rouseyâ€™s first round armbar victory over Liz Carmouche (and what it might mean for the overall future of womenâ€™s MMA), the stinkfest Lyoto Machida and Dan Henderson forced us to suffer through and the sudden gnashing of teeth over the UFCâ€™s release of Jon Fitch (which was pretty much the most classic response ever from the collected MMA industry). The guys also talk about Brendan Schaubâ€™s lackluster victory over Lavar â€œBigâ€ Johnson, the relative ins and outs of Johnson’s penile nickname and how awesome it was when Kenny Robertson tapped Brock Jardine with a DIY submission hold. Oh yeah, and Chad sends a special fuck you out to the hapless clowns in the South Dakota state government. At the risk of repeating ourselves, allow the CME to say it again: Fuck you, clowns.
All that, plus Just Sayinâ€™ Stuff, AYFKM and â€“ like we always do about this time â€“ listener mail.
Direct downloaders can celebrate their freedomÂ right here.
