Stipe Miocic and Daniel Cormier fulfill the trilogy this weekend. Kind of feels like it snuck up on us, no? Plus, we love Derrick Lewis, but is he trying to do too much? And shouldn't some MMA company just give Michael Chandler whatever he wants?
Score one for the grizzled veterans, as Derek Brunson became the first professional fighter to crack the riddle of Edmen Shahbazyan on Saturday night. Plus, chaos ruled at UFC Fight Night 176 and--what's this???--a certified weirdsmobile fight between Derrick Lewis and Aleksei Oleinik is on tap.
Robert Whittaker reasserted himself as one of the UFC's elite middleweights--and reminded us he has no qualms about stomping a motherfucker's knee to shreds. Plus, Shogun and Roger Nog didn't make us sad, while Khamzat Chimaev and Tanner Boser arguably emerged as the Pandemic Era's breakout stars.
Joseph Benavidez likely saw his last, best chance at a UFC title evaporate when he got choked unconscious by new undisputed flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo on Saturday. Plus, what did we miss from Wednesday and -- hoo boy -- the UFC's Yas Island vacay looks to end with a bang.
The legend of Street Jesus collided with the best welterweight in the world at UFC 251 and ... well ... it was a long night in the Bread Game. Plus, Max Holloway maybe got jobbed (or maybe not!) and Petr Yan beat Jose Aldo into a living death there at the end.
Gilbert Burns is out and Jorge Masvidal (probably, almost certainly) in against Kamaru Usman in the UFC 251 main event. It was a circuitous route to the fight that should've been headlining this pay-per-view all along, but all's well that ends well, right. RIGHT?
Dustin Poirier and Dan Hooker went to battle on Saturday in the main event of UFC on ESPN 12. Did Hooker prove he belongs among the lightweight elite? Did Poirier revive his title aspirations? This week, it's an All Questions Considered episode of the CME.By Co-Main Event Podcast
Curtis Blaydes told us exactly what he was going to do to Alexander Volkov on Saturday night and then he went out and did it. He also warned some of you more punch-and-kick-oriented types that you might not like it. One person who didn't? Dana Frederick White Jr., though in fairness it was likely more Blaydes' comments on fighter pay that set the U…
Cynthia Calvillo established herself as a women's flyweight contender with a win over Jessica Eye on Saturday. Would we say she looked ready for Valentina Shevchenko, however? No, we would not. Next up: Curtis Blaydes fights Alexander Volkov, while Dana White says every UFC card is wonderful and if you're a fight fan, you'll watch them all.…
In July 1993, a gunman opened fire at the San Francisco law firm of Pettit & Martin, killing eight people and wounding six more. Several of the casualties were friends and former colleagues of Joe Anderson, who'd worked at the firm. Joe is an entertainment attorney, a fourth-generation Montanan from Shelby, and a serial entrepreneur. After the shoo…
Amanda Nunes, the female GOAT, continues to be leaps and bounds ahead of any competition the UFC can find for her. What are you gonna do? Meanwhile, Cody Garbs, Aljo and O'Malley make the case against Aldo. Oh, and Conor McGregor also wants more money and is retired again.
Jon Jones says he's vacating the light heavyweight title and going on hiatus during a public spat over pay with the UFC. Then he's suddenly out in the streets working as a social activist. Plus, Gilbert Burns finally arrives and UFC 250 takes its best shot on PPV.
Sportswriter Chad Dundas has covered wrestling and mixed martial arts for ESPN, NBC Sports, the Associated Press, Sporting News , and since 2019, full-time for The Athletic .

Apologies from some sound quality issues on this week's show, Co-Mainiacs. Hopefully, you will solider through with us.

Alistair Overeem weathered an early storm to defeat Walt Harris by virtue of his wily, veteran guile on Saturday. We discuss that, plus look back at the UFC's weird week in Jacksonville.
When it finally arrived, UFC 249 weekend served-up a downright unwieldy number of storylines. From Jacare's positive coronavirus test to "The Waiver" to Justin Gaethje's surprise destruction of Tony Ferguson, we discourse.
What's Dave McEvoy's starting point for Aerie Backcountry Medicine's wilderness first responder training courses? The assumption that, in the backcountry, “no one is coming to help you.” What's the corollary? That an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. “First of all, what you mostly want is to not need help. So wilderness medicine classes…
It's here (we think). It's happening (maybe). It's finally going down (in a matter of days). UFC 249 fight week is upon us leading up to Saturday's revamped and (twice) rescheduled fight card. Are you ready? Is the world?
The UFC plans to do three events in Jacksonville, Fla., from May 9-16. Can that be safe? One way or another, we're all going to find out.By Co-Main Event Podcast

Part One of this two-part episode features Montana entrepreneurs who are pivoting to help their commun…

With UFC 249 officially postponed after Disney and ESPN bigwigs pulled the plug on Dana White's Grand Plan to Be a Man, we look at what we learned about White, Disney, ESPN, MMA fans, media and managers. Plus, what will the sport look like when it finally comes back?By Co-Main Event Podcast
We're told UFC 249 is a go. We're told the main event will be Tony Ferguson vs. Justin Gaethje. We're told it will be for an interim title. We're told the venue you will be ... wait for it ... "somewhere on EARTH." So, yeah.By Co-Main Event Podcast
What do Bill Gates and a small county seat in central Montana share? Their respective kudos to the company, Eventgroove . Speaking at a Montana economic summit about technology's ability to connect buyers with sellers around the globe, Gates singled out Eventgroove, name-dropping one notable customer of this Harlowton event-tech firm: Microsoft.…
Khabib Nurmagomedov is "stuck at home" in Dagestan, which makes him a lot like the rest of us, when you think about it. So, he's probably out, but the UFC insists 249 is still on. Plus, Jon Jones in trouble again.By Co-Main Event Podcast
Well, here's something completely different. This week, from self-isolation and without much MMA happening worldwide, we went back and rewatched UFC 1. It was weird. Then we talked about it.By Co-Main Event Podcast
