Episode 478: Can't wait for the new shapes to drop

Nov 29 • 01:05:48

The Trillers revolutionized modern hand-to-hand combat with the Triad or whatever over the weekend, and the results were a real mixed bag for the former UFC fighters on the card. Not to worry, however, since we all return to the world of Serious MMA this weekend. Bellator has a super compelling men's bantamweight title fight on Friday, pitting Sergio "YOUNG SERGE!" Pettis ...

Death in the West: DB Cooper 50th Anniversary Episode

Nov 24 • 29:47

Hey Co-Mainiacs, just a reminder that Chad's other podcast, "Death in the West," returns for a second season in January. This week, DITW dropped a special teaser episode for the upcoming season that commemorates the 50th anniversary of the legendary DB Cooper hijacking in the Pacific Northwest. Give it a listen!...

Episode 477: Holloway-Rodriguez was art. Hang it in the Louvre!

Nov 15 • 01:16:06

Max Holloway showed out, but perhaps needed to dip deeper into the ol' bag of tricks than we anticipated to defeat Yair Rodriguez in ANOTHER FOTY candidate UFC main event. And did it surprise anyone that while all this happened, Conor McGregor was EXTREMELY ONLINE? No, it did not. Over in Bellator, meanwhile, Cris Cyborg housed a 40-to-1 underdog and had some words with Ka...

Episode 476: Are there even words to describe Gaethje-Chandler?

Nov 8 • 01:19:06

Somehow Justin Gaethje vs. Michael Chandler exceeded even our loft expectations. That was just bananas, and now they better damn well let Gaethje fight the winner of Chucky Olives vs. Dusty P. Plus, we are sure Rose Namajunas vs. Zhang Weili should've been scored 3-2. Just ... you know ... we're not sure for who. And finally, after besting Colby Covington, does Kamaru Usma...

Episode 475: All hail the great and powerful Glover

Nov 1 • 01:16:46

You know what, in this sport, we'll take the feel-good stories where we can get them. Glover Teixeira winning his first UFC title at 42 while being universally liked and and unyielding positive is a feeling we want to hold onto. Perhaps the only downer here was the Janny Blackjacks (also seemingly a good dude) had to lose. Plus, Petr Yan starts off scary and only gets scar...

Episode 474: Getting nervous for Costa, excited for Fedor & pumped for UFC 267

Oct 25 • 01:09:44

Marvin Vettori was surprisingly businesslike all week, considering all the nonsense Paulo Costa was pulling, and that approach extended to the fight. Vettori notably wouldn't share his wine with Costa after the bout was over, though, which seems kinda unfortunate. Plus, can you really believe we're out here strategizing another fight for Fedor? And what's on tap for UFC 26...

Episode 473: Your Qs on Conor McGregor, UFC: Ladd vs. Dumont, Bellator GP & More

Oct 18 • 01:11:29

It's amazing how naturally the phrase, "Conor McGregor punched a DJ," rolls off the tongue at this point. Yeah, that just feels right. That feels like something McGregor would do. This week, on an All Questions Considered episode of the CME, we take your questions on Connie Mac's latest run-in with the law, Aspen Ladd's stinker against Norma Dumont (and the weird coaching ...

Introducing: Doin' The Damn Thing

Oct 14 • 01:28:05

The maiden voyage of Doin’ The Damn Thing is frankly jam-packed with CME goodness. We spend the first part of the show discussing the first couple episodes of Ken Burns’ new PBS doc on Muhammad Ali and some of the ways it either changed or reinforced our views of one of the most iconic figures in all of sports. We also talk to our friend Dan Brooks about the death of Norm ...

Episode 472: Fury & Wilder had a classic

Oct 11 • 01:11:47

Episode 471: These are not the Weirdsmobiles we came to see

Oct 4 • 01:20:23

Well, shit, what can you do? Seemed like Thiago Santos and Johnny Walker kind of forgot to fight during the UFC's main event on Saturday night. That happens sometimes, but it certainly wasn't what we wanted to see from these two strange purveyors of violence. Over in Bellator, Michael Page defeated Douglas Lima via the sort of split decision that didn't tell us much about ...
