After the rollercoaster of the last few weeks it feels almost refreshing to return to the normal MMA news cycle, with the Co-Main Event Podcast sleuthing around for suitable topics with which to fill the hour. That is to say, this should be considered a slow week in mixed fighting circles as there is only one UFC event, and itâ€™s sort of a minor one. Nonetheless, Ben and Chad spend a round of episode 79 â€œbreaking downâ€ (in a manner of speaking) Saturday nightâ€™s forthcoming main event between Gray Maynard and Nate Diaz. In addition, they talk about Jon Jonesâ€™ recent proclamations that he wants to fight Cain Velasquez â€œwithin a yearâ€ and that he wants to retire by age 30. Ben Askrenâ€™s Monday meeting with the UFC is also a topic of conversation, though the show was recorded before any news could break there.
All that, plus MasterTweet Theatre, AYFKM and Just Sayinâ€™ Stuff.
