Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 7 (7/3/12)

With UFC 148 looming on Saturday and the CME podcast’s first ever listener contest set to debut next week, Ben and Chad put one hour, 10 minutes in the books for episode seven. Go ahead, complain all you want about the violation of one of their solemn vows, but you know what? Totally worth it for a week this big. During a supersized Ep7 your dudes discuss the world according to Chael Sonnen, whether or not it’s BS that Tito Ortiz is about to be enshrined in the UFC’s BS Hall of Fame and what to make of the idea that professional fighters ought to “go out on their shields” (as well the promoters who subtly imply they like it that way).

Plus, listener mail, tips for the well rounded fight fan and MasterTweet Theatre.

Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 6 (6/26/12)

In episode six, Ben and Chad discuss the true failings of Clay Guida’s performance against Gray Maynard at UFC on FX 4, break down how the recently retired Fedor Emelianenko will be remembered in MMA history (to the extent “MMA history” even exists) and debate the meaning of Saturday night’s UFC 147 main event. Plus, Sir Nigel Longstock and another installment of MasterTweet Theater, which seeks to answer that age old question: Is there a wombat at the Portland zoo?

Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 5 (6/19/12)

At least one host of the Co-Main Event Podcast thinks this Friday’s UFC on FX 4 card is like a bowl of cheese balls left on the bar at a Hell’s Kicthen tavern. The other suggests video of a tiger fighting a chimpanzee could outsell UFC 147 on pay-per-view. Which is which? Who said what? Does it really matter anymore? Listen to episode five to try to sort out all that, plus which UFC fighter is like the girl you call late at night when you feel like you need some company.

Also, listener mail, tips for a well-rounded fight fan and another installment of MasterTweet Theatre.
