Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 69 (9/17/13)

New logo 42Don’t know if you heard amid all the boxing chatter last week, but there’s a pretty cool mixed-fighting show this Saturday night too, as UFC 165 emanates from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario. This week the Co-Main Event Podcast reckons on whether Alexander Gustafsson really will turn out to be the stiffest test of Jon Jones’ career at said event, or if everyone is just excited for this fight because they’re both so tall. In addition, there is last week’s announcement that B.J. Penn is back (and headed to 145-pounds?!?!) to consider, though who is to say how seriously? Oh, and also, the boxing match. Seemed like a lot of people watched it, and a lot of MMA people even took the opportunity to say nice things about the sweet (albeit elderly) science. So … uh … what’s with all the high profile boxing people continuing to talk shit about MMA? Ben and Chad will discuss.

All that, plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

    You guys think Keith Kizer is going to give any of that marijuana suspension money back? Dude spent that money on salt and pepper toupees a long time ago.

  2. SuperstarPecanbar says:

    Ben’s Just Sayin’ Stuff was hilarious.

  3. Thomas says:

    I agree with you guys about MMA media shouldn’t talk about Boxing. I think this going by your section of the podcast talking about boxing, it’s obvious you have no clue about the sport. Chad basically saying MMA is bigger then Boxing 51 weeks out of the year, had me cringing. The MMA bubble is real, I guess.

  4. Ryan says:

    I can’t find a single story on the Mayweather undercard boxer that pulled out when he found out there was drug testing. Anyone have a link?

    1. Thomas says:

      Yeah, I was searching everywhere. Reddit, twitter, wiki, google. Couldn’t find anything.

  5. James in Detroit says:

    BJ should be 1-1 with Edgar, just sayin’…

  6. MMArs says:

    I don’t know if it’s more baffling to me that Chad legitimately seems to think MMA is a bigger deal than boxing “51 weeks of the year” (Newsflash: No. Just no.) or that you guys never once hinted at the fact that in reality-land, BJ Penn did not lose to Frankie Edgar twice. He lost the second one, for sure, but in Abu Dhabi, there is no way a reasonable human being could give Frankie more than two rounds (personally, I only gave him one).
    Fun listen as usual, but man, you sure made me facepalm a couple of times this week.

    Does Douglas Lima have Killer Bee’s ticket he’s now 2-0 with two knockouts? When is the CME youtube stream coming out or at least a TV show on a none MMA affiliated TV station or is Ben afraid to put his god dam shirt on.
