Sarokin, Dan Hooker, Ronda Rousey discussed on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani


Yeah but they're coming. They're coming down on the bench. Chose is one of those those. I don't know. I don't know who are big inspiration was but i felt like she was kind of that. Those those new ronda rousey move missile all the fight when she was like nine or twelve or something i know she went to the gym and she is just one of those women. I think hanson's one of those two things. He's better than kate hansen. But just one of those there were just. This is what they wanted to do ever since they were like a young teenager twenty two. She looked amazing tonight. Yeah just blown away. I knew how good rookie and was. And that was the show showcased vice. Oh that was awesome but exciting for an blanchfield. And yeah can't wait. She's she's actually. She's what what was trying to say. Who macy barbara was. I think his arab lands. Macy bar was kind of just wanna build up like this. You know she's going to be the john jones. John jones of flyweight division. But i think she's more on that route than than ufc typing. No isn't giving her that. Same kind of hype. And i think she deserves it rather than maybe we'll say there's a few twenty five right now. That are making bannon fiero. She's a little bit older. But casey o.'neil twenty-three about stern twenty four and i get aaron blanchfield so the future's bright one twenty five cal pennington for mine not just because oh that whole fight flew under the radar but then just hearing the stories of her getting covert and being on a freaking respirator. Things i had no idea that she was battling and then to come back in you know. Have that grimy performance against Pans out who has been on a nice run that that was was an impressive performance and then hearing sort of the back story of how she got to that fight and i was flying under the radar anyways but sieber cal go in there and perform the way that she did super impressed with her so she would be my six player award winner. So there you go we got some Some compelling questions. We'll take a few meaning we try to so. I will just point out. One comment. That i saw from mr ed k. Who said aka you make pigs stab bat again. And you're being relegated one letter. Don't wanna let her out. Acknowledge this person i. I'm kidding i love. i love all the commentators. I love all the commenters you can. You can today or at a k. But that's what's at stake now. How how likely is rutan's next. Fight against the winner of dan hooker versus nasrat hack passed or will he face another unranked opponent. Now ak you. And i are going to have this discussion onto the next one tomorrow and i have for this and i'm going to save that for then but sean what do you think. Do you think sarokin will get the winner by by the way. We don't even know if dan hookers gonna make it's that bite at this point at that gives visa issues a very public right now. Hopefully monday fingers crossed can get vegas by thursday s. We have rough fight week for that man. But would you throw sarokin the winner of hooker and hack or would you. Would you go a different direction after that performance tonight. If it's up to me. I liked that i liked that fight. I think actually arm and that was one thing. I even forgot to mention when i was talking about arms. He sort of did the legwork early right like he sort of planted those seeds coming into this fight so he already had it set up to where dan's like legitimately kind of upset at him and like actually wants to fight him which that's the biggest hurdle of all when you get to these really deep divisions is convincing ranked guy to give you the shot when you're when you're not there when you're sort of on that periphery of the division. So i would love that. I think dan hooker has has had a really crazy slate of top contender. Fights really tough tough fights against the best guys in the division and he is due for the very similar. Like anthony smith esq. Hey come back to the back of the line. Work your way back up by a couple of these up and comers and then we'll give you another top five guy like to me if he beats nazaret even if he loses like i would absolutely love to to see that fight feels like a proper escalation for armand to me while not really messing with dan's trajectories. Well actually like the casey I i hope it's a hooker fight. I hope This is all the assumption hooker gets in gets in the country fine and makes wait fine or whatever that's another thing but Yeah Hopes in bites. I had of him. that's all. yeah. I think we're i think we're done with the building him up. I think this this is a big highlight. they needed. You know they gotta yeah. It's the last little push before. He's he's gone. He's running at this point to finish got it and iago's was had three five winning streak heading into the fight to so this again. This next cashman. This next question might seem kind of crazy. But i don't know is jake paul versus yoel. Romero apostle match should now be considering both showtime. Just ak your. Yeah you hells. Yeah you put you put that on the poster and it sells itself. Oh my god you put it on his that forty four year old honest glistening. That's the that's it sold. Imagine facing off going. Oh god promos. Go give me like a table. Read where. It's ariel in the middle in jake paul and eulogised grunting and saying one word answers the entire time earn him dead and the is like i'm so in on that that'll get five million views tomorrow down respect to jake. Paul jake take that fight that you might see my only issue with the question is it shouldn't be considering the matchup that we should now be hoping for because then resounding yes this is this is what is should be next or no. I mean look. There's a lot of good matchups for for jake paul. His team has him and his team have done a really good job of picking their opponents of far. I do think romero might be a little bit of a bridge too far. But i also don't i honestly i don't i wouldn't romera would kill him. This is where we are with no experience. Now jason fight right. He could versus that cuban boxing who knows i just i i just thought question was like oh let me think about this house. It up there in the universe. Let's let's be responsible for this. This possible opponent. That could put the fear of god into j just in the pre man like all of us have been. I would imagine that media days with yoel romero. Then dude is the most intimidating human being to speak to ever. It's just crazy. We talked to professional cage fighters for a living. And i think. I've never been as scared as i just talked to you over barrel such an intimidating dude. I'm like i'm thank god. This is a scrum. 'cause i i don't know if i can handle one on one i'll talk to one hundred without feeling me. Want to see the enersen fight. I wanna see the anderson. Jake paul fight. That's the pure semi. But sean you sold me area on the middle those to the table top right right and you all just staring a hole through the crazy is the whole time lucky be he knocks out your well and then maybe you know worrying but i'll has to join in you know. Oh well my fellow cuban. Yeah my fellow human omega on the. He can't do the fight but he can be the ballet. You know he can be right there. You know i mean we can just go full circus and do mas- vidal romero tag team. They switched every round. First round around. Romero we're getting them both leader logan. Yeah and the books yes. We should absolutely be considering that fight. Be more comments hybrid impact. Eighty davis is boring. You don't know him. A mixed for a reason. As case like i say it is the mixing of the martial arts philby mixes those martial arts and does it very effectively so yes. Hybrid impact eighty three. I'm what i don't like to go as far as say if you don't appreciate a or you don't know emma may i always feel. It's a little strong. But i would say you're you're maybe have may have somewhat myopic view of at least as far as what you find entertaining and again we all love ramsbotham stuff..

Coming up next
