Francis Ngannou's contractual status with the UFC has dominated the storylines leading up to Saturday's "title unification" bout against Cyril Gane. But what happens when these two guys actually get in the cage together? How will the fight go? What's the best case scenario for Ngannou? What's the worst? We discuss. Plus, Brandon Moreno and Davey Fi…
 
It's another FREE Power Hour for all the little Co-Mainiacs this week. On this episode, it's all power rankings all the time this week, as we head into Saturday's Fight Night event featuring Giga Chikadze vs. Calvin Kattar. Among our topics: We'd make a list of suspects who might want to throw a Molotov cocktail at Conor McGregor's pub, but this sh…
 
Giga Chikadze's Fight Night main event against Calvin Kattar coming up on Saturday may well have gotten more interesting this week, when Max Holloway pulled out of a featherweight title shot at UFC 272. Right now, Chan Sung Jung and Henry Cejudo are both pursuing that open slot against Alexander Volkanovski, but you know how this sport is. Who's to…
 
For the third year in a row, the UFC wishes fans a Happy New Year by raising prices on its PPV events by $5. That's a 25% increase in just a few years. On this episode of the Power Hour, we ask: Will the ballooning sticker price ever hit a breaking point for fans? So far, it has not. On the bright side, at least we can be assured fighters will get …
 
If Dana White had actually read "The Art of War" he might understand that it is a bad idea for him to continually engage Jake Paul on the battlefield where Paul is strongest. Unfortunately, the longtime UFC president just comes out of every skirmish in this feud looking more and more out of touch. Plus, we wonder: Is the UFC really gonna let Franci…
 
Due to some family obligations, we're not going to be able to record that new episode of the Proper we promised. Instead, please accept this free episode of Doin' the Damn Thing. For the final pod of the year, your dudes talk about our favorite TV shows, movies and books of 2021. Also, an abbreviated Kraken Up, with the NHL shut down amid a holiday…
 
Derrick Lewis became the UFC's all-time knockouts leader with his win over Chris Daukaus on Saturday night, for whatever that's worth. On the other side of the country, Jake Paul walloped Tyron Woodley in their hastily arranged boxing rematch. We discuss those fights, and welcome Sir Nigel Longstock to read UFC fighters' letters to Santa Claus duri…
 
CME listeners had a lot to say in the wake of UFC 269. You filled up our inbox, so we had no choice this week but to take listener mail throughout the episode, while we discuss Charles Oliveira's submission win over Dustin Poirier and Juliana Pena's shocking upset of Amanda Nunes. Plus, not for nothing, but doesn't it seem like you could make some …
 
The UFC offers up the final PPV of 2021 this Saturday, with two title fights on the main card of UFC 269. Charles Oliveira defends his lightweight title against Dustin Poirier and Amanda Nunes puts the women's bantamweight title on the line against Juliana Pena. Should be a banger. Plus, look at 35-year-old Jose Aldo out here slowly but surely remi…
 
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 Serg…
 
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!If you like it, you can subscribe her…
 
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 a…
 
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 Co…
 
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…
 
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…
 
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…
 
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…
 
Boxing owned the weekend, no doubt about that. Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder crafted a classic in their trilogy fight, capturing the attention of the sports world in a way it feels like MMA can never quite muster. Plus, does Mackenzie Dern need to decide what kind of fighter she wants to be? And what will you watch this weekend? The UFC? Bellator? …
 
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 d…
 
UFC 266 was a hell of a fight card, basically from start to finish. While there weren't any surprises in the evening's "big three" bouts, Alexander Volkanovski and Brian Ortega put on an absolute crackerjack in the main event and the prelims were just flat wild. Oh yeah, and Jon Jones made his fist official appearance at a UFC function in months an…
 
Anthony Smith had some words for Ryan Spann in the cage Saturday night, after Smith scored a first-round submission victory. "Lionheart" admits he let some of Spann's pre-fight trash talk get to him but now says he no longer gives a fuck. Plus, UFC 266 is right around the corner and Yoel Romero finally made his Bellator debut and maybe didn't know …
 
It took Anderson Silva a little under one minute, 30 seconds to leave Tito Ortiz in the black lands during their boxing match Saturday at the Trillers. Silva styled on Ortiz so badly, some people thought Tito took a dive. That's gotta hurt. Plus, we look ahead to this weekend's #JSF UFC event and Yoel Romero's impending Bellator debut. Learn more a…
 
Derek Brunson went out this weekend and reminded us all that he is a very good fighter who thus far in his UFC career as only lost to the elite in the middleweight division. So, that was good for him. Bad, though, for Darren Till, who now drops to 1-4 in his last five and needs to find some answers quick if he hopes to have much future as a high-le…
 
It turns out, Tyron Woodley boxes a lot like he fights in MMA, which is to say watching him was one of the more frustrating experiences in all of combat sports. So, yeah, Jake Paul improved to 4-0 or whatever. Also, is it finally, actually GigaTime in the octagon? And, holy shit, UFC 268 is stacked ... for now (card subject to change). Learn more a…
 
Jared Cannonier edged Kelvin Gastelum in a competitive and entertaining UFC main event on Saturday night, then immediately hopped on the mic and announced that he's "broke." Is that a good look for the UFC? That's a bad look, right? Plus, does Kayla Harrison actually have this whole shit figured out? And ... uh-oh ... Sunday, Sunday, Sunday, it's J…
