Alistair Overeem

Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 65 (8/20/13)

New logo 65Consider it yet another significant hurdle cleared by the UFC on Saturday, as the organization’s Fight Night 26 show ferried Fox Sports 1 into the world with the violent, crowd-pleasing stuff of promoters’ dreams. As the fog of war dissipates, the Co-Main Event Podcast swoops in to sort through the particulars. So, Chael Sonnen got a big light heavyweight win just in time to drop back to middleweight, huh? And you say Alistair Overeem is looking more fireable than ever after his knockout loss to Travis Browne, is that it, old sport? And FS1’s ratings seem to be a smashing success? Yes, well, Ben and Chad will be the judge of that, as they break down all these topics and more during the next seventy minutes or so.

Plus AYFKM and Just Sayin’ Stuff.

Sounds: This week’s soundtrack comes courtesy of podcast listener Dirty Mike Newstead and his rock outfit Withdrawal. Hear more of their stuff here.

Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 64 (8/13/13)

New logo 64Episode 64 marks another early arrival for the Co-Main Event Podcast, this one recorded and put in the can just as news broke that Jason “Mayhem” Miller had allegedly been arrested for domestic violence. So, that’s about typical as it concerns breaking news constantly occurring just as the podcast is finished. Fortunately, there was more than enough preexisting MMA news to fill this episode as Ben and Chad laid it down on Sunday afternoon. Topics discussed here include the pending debut of Fox Sports 1, the returns of both Chael Sonnen and Alistair Overeem as well as Ronda Rousey’s recent claims she’ll only fight for another couple of years before transitioning to career No. 2 (or wait, career No. 3? Eh, who’s counting?). In the middle, the guys mix in some talk about last Saturday’s World Series of Fighting 4 card, which included promotional owner Ray Sefo losing to Dave Huckaba, Lew Polley badly missing weight and Tyrone Spong getting his second professional MMA win.

All that plus AYFKM, Tips for the Well-Rounded Fight Fan and Just Sayin’ Stuff.
