Raquel Pennington, Aldana, Pennington discussed on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani


Doesn't make a lot of sense to me right now so i think just going a bunch of different directions. Just give her. Just keep her busy so i have her. I just wanna see her again and hope she stays healthy and Yeah stays busy. And just you know bills that resume. She's still really young again. I know top prospect. We were all extremely fuse. Our praise of her on the On the post fight show and social media. everyone wants to take. This could be a future champions someday. Gotta pump the brakes a little. I agree she'll these content. I'll be shocked. Never lets uc title. But that's way down there. I'm talking twenty twenty three so a lot of possibilities in between now so no. I wanted to figure out. What do we do with raquel pennington. She has fought everyone in the top ten. Pretty much i had to go the rematch route. I do think for her. I would like to see your i think. Dna aldana again Especially if pennington. I don't again. They said she was doing some health. Problems enforc- lena. Despite so i can't imagine you want to make two quick turnaround but she did wanna fight on. Uc to sixty eight. That's lot is now. Donna was supposed to fight. Germain dead under me so I would would to see that rematch. I fight was entertaining. More entertaining than most raquel pennington prints and it was close. I don't remember that. I wouldn't call it a robbery but it was close enough that if you scored it for aldana. It wasn't like crazy. It was like okay you could. You could make an argument. You can one that fight. So yeah gimme gimme that one again. I think i think pennington's is i mean. She's just probably not going to get a title shot. but i do think i'll donna. Needs one more big win. And i think being penny again be great. Did miss wait for her last by too. So that's a bit of a is almost like a bit of a slap on the risk for me Saying well you. Do you deserve a big fight. But maybe one you've already had And so chance for her to get a win win back. So i think that's the way to go. If not at uc to sixty eight then you move on that card and you book a sometime later. Yeah i'm cool with that. You are go with this. Ak you know where i'm going with this. I'm going with montage. Quick jackson and first off the tip of the old cap. I don't have hat on now. But i'm gonna put one on do it and i'm tipping right now to jp confirmed that he did just do that. Does not radio magic. It's true actually. Yeah i'm looking at right. I pledge looked. It just happened to have a hat to the right of me on the line and red sox hat shock i as someone investors legally have to have one of those within arm's reach at all times so for this is true hat tip to jp bays. The man is a gamer. He had some moments. Early jackson state composed says he typically does he composed all the time. Just listen to man in any interview. He same demeanor all the time and then he just blasts his way to a unanimous decision. Win breaking a bantamweight record four knockdowns in the fight. I kind of thought the fight should have been stopped after the fourth knockdown like enough is enough. Let it go. Jp base still super tough. Mantell jackson i've been saying this for years. He's a problem since he was on the regional. Seen i said this guy could fight for a ufc title. The potentials there and he's only going to get better. I'm ready to step up in competition. I wanna see face somebody. Just outside of the top fifteen. My wildcard pica's mantell jackson versus cody. Stayman ak. let's give him that fight. I want to see if he could take that next step forward. I'm sure he learned a lot from the brett. John's fight cody's tough out. I think mantell that. Could i think he's that good. And if his mind is right if he can get himself where he needs to be mentally. I think he'd be cody statement. I think he'd beat a lot of guys in the top fifteen but it's it's on him. It's on him. He didn't show up for the brett. John's fight bretton. No take anything away from brett. He had a great performance. He shot mantell down. But you could tell mantell. Maybe the moment is all too much for them. We gotta get him to a point where he's gotta take these moments and see what he can do with them. I think now is the time. Let's get him in there with a guy. Like cody stayman. A guy with the name guy been in the top ten. And let's see what happens. That's perfect sarokin. Iago's level Matchmaking mike i i that's where statement is and this is not steam again is a guy who could end up. He's one of those guys who's gonna surprise us one day when you see like he has like twenty. Ufc fights and yeah maybe has never been. It's not a ton guy pushes the super tough test for everyone who wants to break into that top of the top twenty top ten so he. He's really well rounded great cardio a really good wrestler Yeah and and i think mental jackson would be favored in that fight but it would not be an easy fight by any stretch so My best friend exquisite wildcard. Nick thank you. Yours is very good as well. Thank you yes. Here's a very good. And next time you see. Mantell jackson like a photo of him. Just look at the build a look at the size of his fists. It's insane it's nuts. Brock listener hands. You could tell them this fight. I'll say i mean. He tells the hands pretty quickly. But you could see you know when you're still slow motion replays. You're like man this guy. Those hands are our boulders. Yeah absolutely so. Do we have any check the tapes or do we. Oh yeah. I'm sure we had a bunch we've had. We've been offer almost two weeks here. Yes well we don't have that many but we have some. We have one really good one from heads. A fellow clearly. A fellow contender series junkie. Like yourself i believe. I may has has been sending me a contender series matchups after after. There's been a two cards right to conserve cards. This season three three i believe. Has they've been sending me a match ups. Every time they nailed one O.'day osborne and cj bruguera uc to sixty eight november six..
