Listen: Artem Lobov, Paul, Jay Deluca discussed on The MMA Beat
"But I'm not, Nope. I'm not at all. I'm eating this up. And that's one thing that like says, Jay DeLuca is coming out Hartson in the most distasteful thing that I've ever seen in promotion, etc. It's just like. Were you not around last year? Like two thousand eighteen you can point out several examples just from between two men and you know, which to men I'm talking about a much more distasteful promotion than this. So I think the moralizing some degree, like let's just have fun, right. Like this is how I got into the sport was pride circus fights in just ridiculous. The attributes in all of this has been part of combat sports forever. Maybe the pe- in, in your mouth is taking it to some degree of too far. But it's also funny, right? Like it's just I think it's funny coming from. Someone who Poly's, not the biggest guy, and he has very New Jersey New York voice in. It's just funny hearing that sort of thing directed at a gentleman who is European who's, I dunno the whole every dynamic. Also ally enforce if you watch that whole press conference, I Paul him on analogy like you said, has that thick New Jersey accent? So that just adds to it, and then he's wearing like an old time. It gangster suit would like hat and like, don't point your finger at me while he's pointing his finger at Artem. It's at. And that's what I'm getting hours, just. It seems like Paul is very, very good at upsetting people, and it's you was trying to piss you off. He would be able to succeed at pissing you off is so thoroughly that it would be so frustrating. And it it's funny watching that bounce off of Artem. I will say I it's a guilty pleasure air love it. Let me ask you. Why does this feel like such guilty pleasure because it does like I tweeted out about earlier this week after that presser instead. I'm all in on this and I got a lot of people saying you should be better, Sean. Like why is this feeling guilty pleasure? Well, I don't think it's a guilty plea. I don't I don't like the phrase guilty pleasure, because if you like something you like it just like own it like you shouldn't feel guilty about enjoying a spectacle. And that's what it is. It's a spectacle, it's not like they're fighting for a championship for like the best, bare knuckle boxer in the world. Like they don't like each other. They're gonna talk trash, and they're gonna get in a fistfight it when I say fistfight like a legitimate fistfight like without gloves. They're just gonna throw down in a ring with a little bit of tape on their hands and that's how they're going to settle this blood feud. So I don't I wouldn't feel guilty about it. If you don't like it, just don't watch it. I, maybe the those pictures of Jason and Jason night and Artem Lobov after where their faces are just like all gashed up and a lot of and everything that to me was more jarring than the build up to this fight. I mean I saw that face like Jason's. Lip is split open his eyes swollen and every. One is it would it that to me was much more. I feel weird watching these people do this to their bodies rather than I don't like watching this because of what they're saying to each other. That's that's how I took. That's all I'm taking it. I think that's fair. Right. Because you just said you wanted to see what Artem would look like in bare knuckle fight against an actual boxer to me that feels like it feels like the result of this. Yes. Probably the most guilty pleasure of all because our improbably is going to get really messed up because he's boxing, a boxer. Yup. Yup. But he's saying all the right things man. He's like, maybe he's not it's different set situation.."
