Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 185 (12/28/15)

comainPod-AYou hold in your hands–metaphorically, at least–the last CME Podcast of 2015. With no way to adequately sum up the rollercoaster ride of this year in MMA, Ben and Chad don’t even try. Aside from some short recollecting during listener mail (listener mail!) this episode sticks pretty much to business as usual. Because business never stops, right? This week your dudes take a look at Saturday’s UFC 195 welterweight title bout between Robbie Lawler and Carlos Condit, which promises to be good fun for everybody except maybe the guy who loses. In addition, they puzzle over the debut of Rizin Fighting Federation (including, after all this time, Fedor Emelianenko vs. Jaideep Singh) and the strange Christmas Eve announcement that Anderson Silva and Michael Bisping will fight on The Fight Pass Dot Com in February.

All that, plus AYFKM and JSS.

Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 184 (12/21/15)

comainPod-AWelcome, ladies and gentlemen, to the Co-Main Event Podcast Christmas special. On this very special episode of the CME we all sit around a roaring fire sipping cocoa with marshmallows while we think back fondly on the year gone by. Nah, not really. You think Ben and Chad have an ounce of Christmas spirit in them? This week, like every damn week, your dudes soberly break down the latest MMA action, including Rafael dos Anjos’ successful UFC lightweight title defense over Donald Cerrone, Nate Diaz calling out Conor McGregor and Alistair Overeem cruising into free agency by putting Junior dos Santos on ice. OK, fine, not that soberly. They wanted to make it worth your while, after all.

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 183 (12/14/15)

comainPod-AHey, CME Universe, how about that Conor McGregor, huh? Turns out he’s pretty good at throwing the old left hand. So good, in fact, that he’s the new UFC featherweight champion, the company’s biggest star and perhaps the first fighter ever with the proper ability, smarts and grapefruits to twist the organization’s arm until it pays him what he’s actually worth. Sad thing about Jose Aldo, though. He collapsed on the canvas like a tipped-over stack of bricks just 13 seconds into a fight we’d all been waiting nearly a year to see. Was that a letdown? That’s just one of the approximately 1 million McGregor-Aldo related topics Chad and Ben take on during this episode of the Co-Main Event Podcast.

Give it a listen. We guarantee you’ve never heard a CME quite like this before.

Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 182 (12/7/15)

comainPod-AThe Co-Main Event Podcast ain’t hurting for topics this week, what with three UFC events on back-to-back-to-back nights. From Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor finally (we hope) doing the damn thing at UFC 194, to Chris Weidman defending the middleweight title against Luke Rockhold to Frankie Edgar vs. Chad Mendes to Page and Sage renewing the love affair for the ages–it’s going to be a pretty big week. In accordance, the CME podcast is also going big. Ben and Chad do five rounds for episode 182, trying to squeeze in all this hot MMA action.

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.
