Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 181 (11/30/15)

comainPod-ADid Benson Henderson’s UFC career come to a close last Saturday in South Korea, with a split decision victory over Jorge GAMEBRED Masvidal? As always with The Man They Call Bendo, it was kinda hard to tell. There were some mixed (?) messages being sent, but your boys at the Co-Main Event Podcast are here to try to do some decipherin’. In addition to that, Ben and Chad look at Jon Jones’ return to the land of walking-based interviews as well as the fact that UFC 194 is just sort of quietly sneaking up on us–ready to jump across the lectern and snatch our belts away when we least expect it.

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

Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 180 (11/23/15)

comainPod-AThis week’s Co-Main Event Podcast is awash in the weird come-down after UFC 193, a heady period where the likes of Neil Magny and Kelvin Gastelum are thrust forth as a main event fight for a televised card from the world’s largest mixed martial arts promoter. You know what? It was long–long as shit, if you want to know the truth–but the Magny-Gastelum fight itself wasn’t half bad. In addition to that, Ben and Chad look ahead to Benson Henderson’s bout with Jorge GAMEBRED Masvidal, which at least knows its place on The Fight Pass dot com. In case you haven’t noticed, there are also some strange happenings over in The World Series of Fighting. Your dudes take a look at allegations being made on that side of the street to close out the show.

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 179 (11/16/15)

comainPod-AWell, what in the good goddamn just happened? That’s probably what you’ve been asking yourself these past few days since witnessing Holly Holm’s shocking second-round knockout of Ronda Rousey at UFC 193. Have to be honest, Co-Main Event Universe, your intrepid CME co-hosts have been asking themselves the same thing. And do you know what Chad and Ben ultimately decided? Why, they decided there was just no good way to discuss the crazy happenings of last weekend without going FIVE ROUNDS.

So here it is, probably more CME Podcast than you ever wanted or ever deserved. On this supersized episode, your dudes talk about what kind of champion Holm figures to be for the UFC, where Her Rowdiness goes from here and exactly what the hell the women’s bantamweight division is supposed to do now. In addition to that, they talk about Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s victory over Valerie Letourneau and then, because they absolutely must, look ahead to Neil Magny vs. Kelvin Gastelum at next Saturday’s UFC Fight Night card.

Do they have it in them? Only one way to find out.

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 178 (11/9/15)

comainPod-AIt’s the big enchilada, Co-Main Event Podcast fans. On Saturday night at UFC 193, Ronda Jean Rousey puts her women’s bantamweight championship on the line against Holly Holm, allegedly at some mondo stadium in Australia. Per usual, that means your dudes Ben and Chad talk about all the things that might happen when these two finally meet. In addition to that, they recap Vitor Belfort’s victory over Dan Henderson on Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 77 and puzzle over Bellator’s latest bookings. Ken Shamrock vs. Royce Gracie? Kimbo Slice vs. Dada 5000? That’s just ridiculous …

Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 177 (11/2/15)

comainPod-AAs the MMA world prepares to dive back in for the push to the New Year, the Co-Main Event Podcast steels itself for what lies ahead. On this week’s episode, Ben and Chad look at Vitor Belfort’s main event bout against Dan Henderson in Brazil this weekend. It’s pretty much the last chapter (maybe) in MMA’s dalliance with testosterone replacement therapy. They also talk about the surprising fun to be had in Jon Jones’ ongoing Twitter beef with UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier. Also, there’s a Bellator MMA event on tap this weekend. The dudes discuss what a good and interesting card it is and then wonder if Bellator is really in the business of putting on good and interesting MMA cards.

In this stunning historical fiction debut set in the world of wrestling in the 1920s, a husband and wife are set adrift in a place where everyone has something to hide and not even the fights can be taken at face value.

Late summer, 1921: Disgraced former lightweight champion Pepper Van Dean has spent the past two years on the carnival circuit performing the dangerous “hangman’s drop” and taking on all comers in nightly challenge bouts. But when he and his cardsharp wife, Moira, are marooned in the wilds of Oregon, Pepper accepts an offer to return to the world of wrestling as a trainer for Garfield Taft, a down-and-out African American heavyweight contender in search of a comeback and a shot at the world title.

At the training camp in rural Montana, Pepper and Moira soon realize that nothing is what it seems: not Taft, the upcoming match, or the training facility itself. With nowhere to go and no options left, Pepper and Moira must carefully navigate the world of gangsters, bootlegging, and fixed competitions, in the hope that they can carve out a viable future.

A story of second chances and a sport at the cusp of major change, Champion of the World is a wonderful historical debut from a new talent in fiction.
