Co-Main Event Podcast Episode 81 (12/9/13)

New logo 81One show on the Fox family of networks down, another one coming this weekend. Episode 81 of the Co-Main Event Podcast finds Ben and Chad reveling in the unexpected glory of Mark Hunt’s slugfest with Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva last Saturday on Fox Sports 1. Twas that rare heavyweight fight that goes a full five rounds, while seemingly getting better at every step along the way. In addition to that, they inspect Mauricio “Shogun” Rua’s revitalizing knockout of James Te Huna, wondering aloud if the “old Shogun” could truly be “back.” With the time remaining, they look forward to next Saturday’s card on Fox Heavy, where Team Alpha Male sends everybody on the roster into the fray.

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

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.
