Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 308 (5/29/18)

comainPod-AAfter a short break for Memorial Day, the CME is back–and just in time to discuss the retirement of Michael Bisping. Bisping announced his exit from MMA on his own podcast on Monday, nicely teeing-up Ben and Chad to discuss one of the UFC’s most unique careers on Tuesday. In addition to that, they look at Darren Till’s “win” (?) over Stephen Thompson at UFC Fight Night 130, which didn’t exactly launch Till into the stratosphere like perhaps matchmakers hoped it might. Oh yeah, and Bellator 200 crowned a new middleweight champion (Gegard Mousasi!) and prompts your dudes to ask: How long we gonna let Michael Page simmer before finding him some competition?

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

Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 307 (5/21/18)

comainPod-AYeah, so Kamaru Usman’s unanimous decision win over Demian Maia in the main event of UFC Fight Night 129 wasn’t exactly a crowd-pleaser. Usman largely wore Maia around the cage like a hat, but compared to the two first-round stoppages in the previous fights, it fell flat. Still, some interesting stuff for Ben and Chad to talk about did come out of it. What to make of Usman now as one of the UFC’s seemingly endless string of young, talented up-and-comers who feel like they could be nice puzzle pieces … if only the UFC could harness their potential? In addition to that fight, your dudes look ahead to Friday’s Bellator 200 and Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 130. Which will you watch if you’ve only got one night to spare?

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 306 (5/14/18)

comainPod-ABen and Chad take back everything they said last week about how maybe UFC 224 and Bellator 199 wasn’t going to be all that. As it happened, shit was *flames emoji*. Amanda Nunes crafted her third straight women’s bantamweight title defense with a beatdown of Raquel Pennington in the UFC 224 main event. Fast-forward a couple days, however, and the hottest topic of conversation appears to be Pennington’s corner sending her back out for the fifth round after she told them she was “done” following the fourth. In that event’s co-main event, Jacare Souza and Kelvin Gastelum got themselves into a real slobberknocker. Not to be outdone, Bellator 199 was also full of crazy stoppages, including Ryan Bader’s 15-second KO of Mo Lawal in the main event and Aaron Pico getting another first-round finish as well. All things will be discussed this week. All things.

All that, plus AYFKM and JSS.
