UFC on Fox 30 looked great on paper and the fights themselves turned out to be banging on Saturday night in Calgary.
After nearly seven painstaking hours of UFC: Hamburg on Sunday, Anthony Smith made short work of Shogun Rua in their main event light heavyweight fight.
Junior dos Santos out-dueled Blagoy Ivanov in the main event of UFC Fight Night 133 on Saturday, though the unanimous decision win wasn’t exactly the home run needed to declare the former champion well and truly “back.”
Ben and Chad discuss the catharsis of seeing Daniel Cormier win the heavyweight title, even if it meant toppling somewhat likeable dude Stipe Miocic.
Donald Cerrone dropped to 1-4 in his last five after a hotly contested contest at UFC: Singapore. So, why do Ben and Chad feel like embodies the “Cowboy” mystique more than ever?
With Chad newly returned from his family trip, the CME recaps UFC 225 and looks at Greg Hardy’s upcoming DWTNCS bout. Also, a date for the next book club!
Your dudes discuss Robert Whittaker and Colby Covington’s heel gimmick. Plus, Ben regales us with tales of bareknuckle boxing in Wyoming.
After 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?

Yeah, 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.
