Independent. Uncensored. Unscripted. The Co-Main Event Podcast is a free weekly podcast about the latest news and rumors in the world of mixed martial arts, featuring longtime MMA journalists Chad Dundas (formerly: ESPN, Bleacher Report, NBC Sports) and Ben Fowlkes (USA Today/MMA Junkie). Since 2012, we've offered our unique brand of straight talk and unfettered analysis for the discerning fight fan.

Sometimes the show is serious. More often, it's just for fun. Sometimes our takes are smart. Occasionally, they're ... the opposite of smart. No matter what, our one stone cold, lead-pipe guarantee to our audience is that we're always honest.

How do we do it? Exclusively with the support of listeners like you.

Beginning in the fall of 2018, we launched a Patreon campaign to help keep the Co-Main Event (the CME, if you nasty) independent and ad free. We appreciate the hell out of everyone who has supported us so far. You make it possible for two regular dudes to run an MMA podcast that is beholden to no one. With a helping hand from you, the discourse remains free and the corporate fat cats are kept away from the door. We love you for that. Those of you haven't yet found your way to hopping on the CME Patreon Express? We're sweetening the deal starting in 2019.

Early in the new year, we'll be adding to our existing menu of patron benefits by launching weekly live chats for patrons at all levels, more short instant reaction and breaking news podcasts for $5 and $10 tier members as well as a new, top secret podcast series exclusively for the big dogs at the $10 level. It's going to be our most ambitious project yet and we're super excited about it. More details on that soon.

Need to know more? Feel free to visit our website, follow Ben and Chad on Twitter and like the CME over on Facebook. If you already know what we're about and are looking for even more ways to support the show (aw, shucks) shoot on over to iTunes and leave us a five-star rating if you think we deserve it.

Tiers
Acquaintance of the Podcast
$1 or more per month

Every little bit helps. Join this tier and you'll get access to the livestream of every week's show, our weekly live chat, as well as occasional other streaming events such as The Day of Reckoning Drinking Challenge(!!). And it's only a dollar! What's a dollar? That's barely even money.

Friend of the Podcast
$5 or more per month

Members in this tier get access to a whole extra podcast each week, one we like to call the CME Power Hour podcast. Plus you'll get access to live streaming events and audio extras sent straight to your inbox following select UFC events, all for the price of a fancy latte each month. This works out to less than 25 cents per episode, which is a screaming deal if you ask us.

One of Our Guys (or Girls)
$10 or more per month

You are truly special to us. That's why members of this tier get all the other stuff (Power Hour, streaming events, audio extras) as well as the monthly Tips For The Well-Rounded Fight Fan newsletter and our brand new weekly podcast – Road Agents: The Deadwood Rewatch. It's ... it's about the HBO show "Deadwood."


As an added bonus, $10 patrons can email us a topic (ANY topic) of their choosing and we will discuss it in a special audio extra that we send directly to you. Because we love you and you complete us.
