Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 53 (5/28/13)

New logo 53Episode 53 of the Co-Main Event Podcast is so chock full of heavyweight goodness that it barely slips in under the 265-pound weight limit. With UFC 160 still lingering on all our palates like a fine wine, Ben and Chad talk about the prospect of Cain Velasquez vs. Junior dos Santos III, the fates of Bigfoot Silva and Mark Hunt, the reintroduction of Josh Barnett to the division as well as Roy Nelson’s intentions to fight Stipe Miocic. With time remaining, they also take a good look at the performance of New Lightweight Superstar T.J. Grant, the emergence of Alexander Emelianenko’s beard and the bloodbath that was Jeremy Stephens-Estevan Payan.

Plus, MasterTweet Theatre, Just Sayin’ Stuff and AYFKM.

    Happy Belated Birthday CME. I’m a bad friend

    WTF is up with Sir Nigel’s voice in this episode?

  3. Not Ben Fowlkes says:

    And why is it that when Sir Nigel speaks, Chad’s voice is constantly distant from the microphone…..?

    Hmmm, the plot thickens CME-ers!

    • I’m as fond of Chad-as-Sir-Nigel conspiracies as the next guy, but this iteration has never made sense to me. If I’m pretending to be Sir Nigel, why would my own voice suddenly sound distant? Wouldn’t it sound the same? Doesn’t the fact that I suddenly sound distant imply a different scenario altogether … like maybe that when Sir Nigel comes in I’m forced to share a mic with a person who is really crappy at sharing? A person like Ben Fowlkes?

    CME is my favorite MMA podcast!

  5. Steeee-payyy!

  6. I always thought Sir Nigel was awful quiet during the rest of the podcast …

  7. John Callaghan says:

    Happy birthday guys. One year old! Really enjoy the show. Thanks.

  8. John Callaghan says:

    The recommendation of the documentary The Imposter was stellar. My wife and I watched it and our jaws continued to drop at a dangerous rate as the story unfolded. Holy Shit. We kept saying “this has to be made up. No way this is true.” A fun night. And you did a good job of not overselling.

    • The Imposter… Sir Nigel… Hmm…

    • I actually thought it’s overrated. I saw it before the CME advised me to go see it, but for me it didn’t really deliver. The plot is absurd, but the documentary does not answers the real questions. It left me quite unsatisfied.

      • John Callaghan says:

        I’d never heard of it before the CME so I was fortuneate to watch without expectations. And I agree the plot was absurd but in the “truth is stranger than fiction” way. And, as often happens in life, not everything can be resolved. But I do think the boy was murdered by his family.

        • SPOILER ALERT John! Lol!

          Staying on the topic, another documentary/movie (you decide) that was alluded to on the podcast; Catfish is also a fun watch albeit a few years older.

          • John Callaghan says:

            Shit. That was stupid of me. Chad and Ben took great care not to spoil anything and here I go blabbing excitedly like the first time I saw Dukes of Hazard. Sorry everybody. Catfish was really good. I’ve watched a few episodes of the as well and it’s good.

          • John Callaghan says:

            “a few episodes of the show” that should read.

  9. Also on the topic of the correct pronunciation of the word ‘Gif’, this from the invetor; http://www.theverge.com/2013/5/22/4354782/steve-wilhite-gif-creator-webby-award via The Verge.

    I am almost 100% sir nigel is a third person, when he introduces the show it sould like nigel, just less theatrical, which leads me to believe there is a third person in the room.

    Also what would be the point of Chad and Ben guessing incorrectly constantly.
