You know how you’re always like, Hey, that thing Ben/Chad was talking about on Tips for the Well-Rounded Fight Fan sounded cool, but now I can’t remember what it was/where to find it/where I left my car keys. Oh well, guess I better hit ’em up on Twitter for a reminder? Yeah, no. From this day forward (and hopefully backward too, if we can swing it) the Co-Main Event Podcast will begin cataloging our TFTWRFF right here in this very post. Each time we do Tips on the CME, we’ll add them to the list below, date them and provide handy links to where you can find the source material for said tip. Seem OK? OK, go …
