Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 140 (2/9/15)

comainPod-AAll right, Co-Main Event Universe, Ben and Chad are going to do things a bit differently this week, for venerable episode Olde No. 140. As depressing as it is to admit, Anderson Silva’s failed drug test of a week ago is still the biggest news of the day, with this weekend’s uninspiring UFC Fight Night 60, WSOF and Bellator cards all failing to engender enough excitement to knock it from the headlines. As they do every so often, your dudes elect to eschew the CME’s normal three-round format this week, spending the first half of the show talking about Silva’s drug issues and then the second half juggling some UFC and Bellator talk. Along the way there is as much listener mail as they can wedge into the conversation.

Oh yeah, and MasterTweet Theatre happens as well.

    OH SHIT! Time to mainline 50cc’s of baboon adrenaline into my brain stem and enjoy a brand new CME!

    Dear Sirs,

    In episode 140, you discussed the idea of a middleweight tournament, but noted that athletic commissions would likely frown upon it. This could easily be skirted by spreading it over multiple events, like was done for the inaugural flyweight title a couple years back. But more to the point, why are one-night tournaments verboten in MMA, but not kickboxing? For example, Glory has recently done events in multiple states (including California and New York) featuring 4- and even 8-man tournaments, and apparently the commissions were cool with it. Why is there a double standard for MMA, especially since the potential for brain trauma is inherently higher in a striking-only tournament?

    Also, regarding Dana White’s comments that Wanderlei Silva has been Pete Rose’d out of consideration for the UFC Hall of Fame, let’s remember that this is the same hall that proudly displays hand-painted portraits of three confirmed steroid cheats, namely Royce Gracie, Ken Shamrock, and Stephan Bonnar (x2). Obviously the criteria for getting black-balled is talking shit about Dana and/or the UFC, but not cheating. Or more specifically, talking shit BEFORE you’re inducted, considering Gracie and Shamrock aren’t on good terms with them these days either.

    Keep up the good work,
    Mike Smith
