Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 61 (7/23/13)

New logo 61Don’t mind telling you, Universe, there are a lot of unknowns on this weekend’s UFC of FOX 8 card, which means the Co-Main Event Podcast had its work cut out for itself during episode 61. Witness Ben and Chad trying to sort out whether the legend of Rory MacDonald is more hype than substance, if Jake Ellenberger can make a run at the 170-pound title before it’s too late and just who the hell is this John Moraga dude everybody keeps saying is fighting for the flyweight title. Your dudes pick over this show like a couple of grizzled lab techs at a crime scene, all the while looking for answers about why Dana White would shout at the hapless people from SI Now, why anybody would think reanimating “bare knuckle boxing” was a good idea and why Joe Riggs would tell those stories about other fighters’ bathing suit areas.

All that, plus MasterTweet Theatre, AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

SOUNDS: The music you’ll hear between rounds this week comes from listener Dmitri Kalmar and his band Driven Mad. You can find more of their music at

    Ben – Why in the hell are you eating at the The Pressbox? The Pressbox has the worst service of any restaurant in Missoula. The food is somewhere between gruel and cafeteria food. The only positive about that crater of a resteraunt is its proximity to campus. Other than that the service is horrible, the food is worse, and generally it is full of either A.) Old alums trying to relive/remember their glory days, or B.) on UFC PPV nights – UFC Bros.

    I am disappoint Ben.

  2. Quick observation…in the “early days” of the podcast i felt Master Tweet Theater was all about the game! Whether Chad Dundas or Ben Fowlkes could guess whose tweet it was. Now it really has very little to do with them. Its all about Sir Nigel reciting crazy tweets! (and every once in a while we get treated with the best Michael Bisping impression on the planet) I love the evolution of MTT and look forward to it every week!

  3. Check out the video below regarding “bare knuckle boxing”

    It’s boxing in a YAMMA pit fighting bowl using gloves with holes cut out so as to expose the knuckles

  4. You guys FRIKKIN RULE for using Driven Mad on the show!!!!!!

    I’m SO proud, that it would be embarrassing to admit to another man how proud I am. Thank you for making this grown man feel like a little school girl all over again. What?

    This is even better than my hard-earned Cage Potato t-shirt!!!!

    The Co-Main Event is the Kimo of podcasts. All others are Joe Son. CME 4 Life!

    • I always figured our tiger tattoos and man-on-the-street builds made us more like the Mark Hall of podcasts, but I’ll take the Kimo comparison walking away.
