Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 258 (5/29/17)

comainPod-AAfter a week off to collect themselves–and in the case of Ben, go on vacation with his family–the Co-Main Event Podcast is back with a vengeance. Doesn’t hurt that there are oodles of top-shelf MMA happenings to discuss, either. That’s right, we said oodles. On this week’s show, Ben and Chad look at Alexander Gustafsson’s 21-minute beatdown of Glover Teixeira at UFC Fight Night 109 on Sunday, which maybe revitalized Lusty Gusty’s title hopes after a few rough years. In addition to that, they talk about Germaine de Randamie’s recent declaration that she won’t be defending her women’s featherweight title against Cris “Cyborg” Justino and what that means for the futures of both GDR and 145-pounds (spolier: it’s not good!). Lastly, they look ahead to the main event of UFC 212, where Jose Aldo and Max Holloway will do their damnedest to unify the men’s featherweight crown and begin to move the division away from Conor McGregor.

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 257 (5/15/17)

comainPod-AUFC 211 was a barnburner, Universe, and this week’s Co-Main Event Podcast has your wall-to-wall coverage. Stipe Miocic’s first-round TKO over Junior dos Santos to put a second successful defense of the heavyweight title in the bank? Check. Joanna Jedrzejczyk foiling the brute strength of Jessica Andrade by breaking a bunch of her own already insane UFC striking records? Yuuuuup. Demian Maia eking out a split decision win over Jorge Masvidal and reportedly sewing up that long-sought-after welterweight title shot by turning himself into a human backpack for 15 minutes? Got that too.

All of that, plus AYFKM and JSS.

Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 256 (5/8/17)

comainPod-ANot gonna lie to you, Universe, parts of this episode of the Co-Main Event Podcast don’t sound great. This week’s recording session was beset by technical difficulties, mostly with Ben’s microphone. Fact is, the ol’ Behringer C-1 may be on its way out. Can’t blame it, really, what with Fowlkes sitting there breathing on it for 256 episodes. In any case, you’ll run into some terrible hiss, which gets gradually worse toward the end of the first half of the show. Good news is, it gets a little better from there. If you can force your ears to stand it, you’ll hear Ben and Chad discuss this weekend’s UFC 211 main event, pitting Stipe Miocic in a rematch with Junior dos Santos, Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s title defense against Jessica Andrade and Yair Rodriguez taking a massive leap up in competition to fight Frankie Edgar. You know what? We’ll go ahead and get this audio situation figured out before next week. How’s that?

All that, plus AYFKM and JSS.

Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 255 (5/1/17)

comainPod-AAnother relatively slow week in mixed martial arts means another #aintshitgoinon episode of the Co-Main Event Podcast. This week, Ben and Chad fill an hour, 15 minutes with almost nothing but your listener mail questions. Well, your listener mail questions and one episode of MasterTweet Theatre featuring the inimitable Sir Nigel Longstock. So buckle in for that. Per usual, you guys bring the heat with your questions, slanging fire queries about Justin Gaethje’s move to the UFC, whether Yoel Romero should use this lull in the middleweight division to challenge Daniel Cormier and whether it’s OK to like to watch bad people fight and more!

Oh, yeah, and did we mention MasterTweet Theatre?
