As the sport of Mixed Martial Arts continues to grow, so does the number of podcasts covering it.
While that’s undoubtedly a good thing, the fact that pretty much anybody can start one up means that the quality can vary dramatically between them.
To help you sort out the wheat from the chaff I’ve listened to as many MMA podcasts as I could lay my hands on, and whittled them down to 10 that I think are worth a listen.
Update: It’s been a few years since I first wrote this article and there’s been a few changes over that period as some of the original entries are now defunct, while other frankly better podcasts have emerged in their place. Read on to discover the all-new top 10!

1. THE CO-MAIN EVENT PODCAST
Where Can I Find It: Co-Main Event Podcast
When Is it Broadcast: Monday’s
How Long is it: 1hr+
Description: USA Today’s Ben Fowlkes and ESPN’s Chad Dundas chew over the big topics in MMA with a side-helping of humor.
Comments: In 2016 there’s more competition than ever in the MMA podcast space, but for my money The Co-Main Event Podcast is the best around at this moment in time. Fowlkes and Dundas are highly regarded journalists in the sport with years of experience to draw upon and have a natural chemistry together along with a great sense of humor which makes this one an easy, enjoyable listen.
