"alexander hernandez" Discussed on UFC Unfiltered with Jim Norton and Matt Serra

"Blazin reward points and have your food delivered directly to your door so you can sit there you can watch the fight and the prelims are about to start. It's Buffalo Wild Wings. Yes I just dropped the Frie- I'll cover while you get five second rule. Yeah yea I have not seen a card this good for a long time man because there's always cards were like all right. Boom boom will these fights. I am looking forward to the most. I want to see the other one so some of them. Some fights surprise you but I'm looking even from the early pre prelims consenting Gabor's Nico price that's a that's a fucking great fight and one. I bring up a lot. Is these young gun to Bryce Mitchell and Charles Rosa early. Prelims telling you this is as deep a card as I've seen certainly since maybe UFC two. Oh five some people would argue. This is the deepest carton. Ufc history there are about six or seven main events on this sweat co it stands to reason that call far as the former champion fighting. The karate hottie Michelle Waterson who by the way headline in her last fight they be fighting in a main event and Bryce Mitchell Charles wrote Sir fighting on. Ufc fight pass early on so yeah. It's one main event after the next and just just going to be crazy man. Seventy five fighters eight days your success. I met Francis Jersey Rosen's strike. I think that's the fight. Obviously against Ferguson. I WANNA see fight. Anybody all the five. I think he's the guy. I think I say this every time we talk about him but he's the guy that nobody wants to deal with. Because we fight conor you're fighting a giant name. It's a huge payday for everybody cowboys. Houston GATES. He's a big name but he's not on that level so you take your fighting this animal with with With a tremendous risk and not as much reward as as you would want from a guy like connor so I think just the fact that he's getting this title shot is is really great and it's not great luck but it's it's great that the lined up this way for him. Yeah I think you're right and a big reason why he's getting it. Is Tony Ferguson? Because Tony Ferguson. Believes that gateway is richly deserving of championship opportunity in the UFC interim belt or otherwise. Yeah but you're absolutely right about just engaged in Tony. Ferguson is very much cut from that. Same cloth two guys who just relish going into that dark place. That guys like me never wanted to go to as an athlete you know what I mean. They live in those dark places as you. You were a runner. No I mean I've always been a roller. I was the captain of my high school basketball team but if I went to a big public school there's no way I would have been. The captain logged any appreciable minute so athletic career was aided by going to a small school but I played varsity tennis basketball high school choice. Sean I'm five. Nine twin brothers like five eight and three quarters so that's really all the matter Shimmy right. Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's all that you definitely ruled the roost. Because you are taller you aren't you Jimmy. I tell people five eleven. Five six is probably more more true five six also but I feel like I'm sixty you do. But you're a former champion thank you. I've taken six kickboxing classes. You have a reason to feel alpha. You know what I find interesting guys is that I was reading that just engaging with not taking a short was fight against Khabib. I guess it'd be and he did Tony Ferguson. L. Because the style wise but it shows you his mentality because he knows he'll be fighting those take downs and that could be grueling. I don't think Tony's going for a fucking take down. He knows that this is going to be just a bond burner of just fisticuffs and elbow. Shore that Rashad Halloween Eddie? Bravo know what Tony's going to do. I'm not even sure. Tony knows acutely what he's GonNa do on fight night you know. He has really had a pension for sort of making adjustments and going with the flow of a fight. And it's just incredible the resume and the body work that Tony is put together and I hope I'm not a broken record when I am laying out Ferguson's credentials but it's like to do what he has done and to have never have competed for the sports. Ultimate prize is almost criminal crazies. A first ballot hall of Famer. Who put together the greatest lightweight winning streak ever right? He had double digit wins at fifty five before Khabib and yet no one talks about him as being on the Mount. Rushmore of is one of the four greatest fighters of all time and is prominently in that discussion. So Ferguson is putting a lot of his legacy on the line as well and I'm just excited for all the athletes. We talked to all these guys. I know you I mean. Could these guys sound anymore? Ready for these fights like they're all just chomping at the bit like the fans. You might be John. I'm wondering I'm looking at. I wonder if because of Tony at one point had one fight a year and in twenty six teen. He fought twice so maybe it was just like. I'm not saying OUTTA sight outta mind. No one forgets Tony Ferguson. Fighters that your first thoughts might be somebody who's been fighting more actively but you're right. I don't know why he hasn't spoken about in the top five fighter conversation every time. It comes up the first time that I heard about. Kabibi Tony Fighting. I was on a van with Joe Silva after Tony Ferguson had beaten Edson Barboza two thousand fifteen and so I said to Joe I said Oh you gotta give Tony a title fight right now. And he's like no. I WANNA do Ferguson. Let's go bieber. Magomedov essentially dates to two thousand fifteen. And you're right since then has been an active schedule and I think that's certainly is hurt. Him At least in the in the court of public opinion. Yeah well. I'm almost as excited even though again. There's no long standing dream of Ferguson. Fighting Justin Gage. He I think from purified perspective. I am looking forward to this more than I would've with Kazaa and again I'm saying that now because it's not happening but I I like watching gay Xi fight for a title and I think it's really fair so whichever one of these guys fights Habib after. It's a great fight but this fight. I'm looking for two as much or more than I would have against him fighting and the Gateway Bhatia Work Mattie outside the UFC right with successful title. Defenses and everything else. I'm just happy like you are Jim that he's getting a champion shot in the UFC. Because he certainly is earning well. Listen I have no dog in the race or is it a horse in the race with about? I will say this if it will he wins. Obviously we want. We've been waiting forever for that. Fight happened with him in a beam. But I would be equally if not more just intrigued to see the fight between just engaging in Abib because of the way that the styles clash because nobody's able to take down just engaging ground and pound because there's wrestling's out good he uses it strictly to stay up and not the wrestle. Just can't take them down. Just get up and work as kicks in his punches and he's got such a good gas tank could he'll be he gets pissed. Holy could be a do what he does to everybody else to just engage or could just get up an inflict our age. Just fuck man. That's why they play the Games and obviously could be and Justin had the same manager. Elliot so they have intimate knowledge of each other and some have suggested the. Maybe that's why I was so ready to go because he was getting updates on copy before some other people. Oh no doubt. He is maximized the extra three weeks. He got but I think he was pretty damn ready to go on April eighteenth but yeah man. It's all in front of and if the Habib Tony Fight doesn't happen a six time because of just gateway at least a fighter will have gotten in the way of it instead of a of a global crazy circumstances. And I'll tell you another. I don't know if it's been signed yet. But Woodley Against Gilbert Burns on the twenty third. That's a fight that I can't wait to see either because Gilbert Burns looked incredible I mean it was a very brief fight against Damian Meyer. But he's one of the few guys that has any experience now fighting with no audience and he said it made him a little. We talked to him a little nervous because of the sound. You're hearing that. You're not use to hearing so everybody fighting for the first time without a crowd. It's give me interesting to see how they respond to that. Yeah and Gilbert Torino. Burns is on a roll. He could be top five and two divisions but it is a real part of this equation for the fighters and I've been asked a lot leading up to the fights atmospherically. What's it going to be like for you guys? Call the fights candidly for me. It's like I got forty six athletes to master so I focused on the preparation. The what it's going to be like in that atmosphere and that arena. We have a call later today to go over some marching orders. Ufc wise but it's going to be weird but you know Jimmy. These cancer pretty noise cancelling your focused on the action. I'm not sure it's GonNa feel as differ to us as people think it Mike. While I'm so claustrophobic I always wear one on one off and I feel like I'm getting a little hot here like it's going a little with. I always leave one off because I feel like I'm GonNa Fishbowl and I have to be for many reasons terrible play by play announcer because I'd be too distracted by the noise around me. I have to hear the outside. I can't have my headphones on Mighty. They would kill me. John me you something the quarantine. What's an average day for you. How you breaking up the day? What are you doing so You know we were doing the home schooling for a while. Now it's the distance learning that is more associated with the school so there's legitimate work that has to get done like our kids have legitimate work that has to be completed. So it's a big part of the undertaking. One of us is assigned to my one and a half year old son at all times. He's head to head smashes over the fifty five days or so but it's been really hard you know. I know people have much harder. Circumstances than I'm dealing with but just with the three kids getting restless. The older one is starting to get concerned. The daddy's leaving so the kids have sort of been at the at the center of everything that I've been doing but I can't wait to get out of here. Man Just I gotta get Outta here. I really do. I think I'm a better father when I have a little bit of that separation and a I'm ready to go and and hopefully I think the big question for us is when we get home. What exactly are we going to do? Are we in quarantine away from our kids for forty eight hours or so? We don't know exactly what the Protocols GonNa be. But that's probably at the forefront of my concern right now as to how to handle it when I do come home. Isn't it nice to be working though like isn't it nice to have something to focus on and because there's so many people that are just literally running in circles hoping for check because they can't work their jobs are not open so just to be mentally focused on something like man? I'm really lucky to have a job that I'm still able to do that. Is the RUB right there. And we were so prepared for April eighteenth that I felt like I had already prepped. Sixty percent of that show so while everybody else was shouting boredom I was completely immersed in pay per view preparation and have been really for the better part of a month. I've never been in a better place in terms of my fighter cards in my preparation for UFC to forty nine. I'm used to having a bunch of shows leading into these patients. Dark for two months so I'm just ready to go boys speaking about being prepared. I think this the the fact that just got push-back Justin's fight would would tony. I get to help them. I mean a lot for other people. It's only a couple of weeks later. That does mean a lot for if I can. It really does. And we make a big difference if he says he had eighteen or nineteen minutes. Pure hell for Tony. A few weeks ago in theory to see twenty-five minutes of Health Forum. Now right well he's got the same mentality regardless but I definitely yes. It could do nothing but help him. The fact that the fight got wander for a guy like Francis in Gato who I think is the athlete that I've talked to you guys about probably the most in our time. He has built over the years. He's been going hard for like sixteen weeks and I do think you get to a point where it's just too much. I mean all indications are that. He's handled it pretty well. But for him and Rosen strike. I mean these guys have been in camps since like January. One roses strike seems dialed in though man. We had him on here the other day he. I mean I'm thinkin `bout asking him you still used to your power believing your power now you're fighting arguably the most powerful heavyweight ever knew Z. Does it kind of missile? You Game Plan and I don't think this guy's GonNa be looking for any disguise. I don't think he truly believes innes striking and look at his last fight..

"Is on. What the heck we move ahead to our next guest a very relaxed next right now. The tough tough fifteen lightweight in the world. It's a little strange because had things gone on the way they were scheduled to. We'd be talking about what happened at USC to forty nine. It's been a bit of a while road for assault but definitely for this man Alex Hernandez Alex how are you? This is the debut of massage table crowded. It goes right now on the table. So we're GONNA real intimate Look today but But Yeah I'm doing good man show and I just got back on the Mega already on the horse. But you know I kind of relaxed reset last week. A little bit with my body. Cool off 'cause you know just the. The toll takes on your body getting ready for camping for that week. So I just didn't things outdoors and start hitting it really hard The ladder into last week and then getting into this week. So got my dude here. There's yes he's he's working on the legs and we're getting back to man. Get back to work today. You see him in a really good place mentally right now. Probably Mo- mostly because of the massage right now. But how have you handled the sort of on again off again happenings with you? See to forty nine and April eighteenth and all that stuff. Yeah I mean that was a rollercoaster ride. You know like I said you know finding itself takes such a toll on you. You know you get the anxiety. The sleepless nights The physical toll the emotional toll and so the the whole the whole thing. I mean it was. It was Miami. It was like You know I am. I mean my own head. Coach fell out at one point. He got sick Thought LIKE AWESOME. Shit at some point where I was just having a fight through and and just train but every time I'd start revving up I get like insanely nauseous and really hot and so I mean getting tested. It's difficult really worry about that. Shit but I I just I mean it's like we were all kind of dropping at one point But again you know my employer in my opponents weren't really Pandering the fear or you know adhering to really any of the laws or any of the like a pandemic was going on at all so we just had a kind of on this Mountain of optimism. You Know Kinda keep that perspective with a UFC and Just push through you know not be a bitch and and that that's what I did and I got a fuck load better in the last two months. I mean I've been. I've been in Cambodia since you know since January I it seems so I hard for a long time now and And I've radically improved and I kind of justified or sort of confirmed that to myself. Isn't these last few days taking off resetting And not wearing a worrying about an opponent so much an event and just coming in having some phone with the guys in the gym. Really good to get in here. So we're kinda open the doors a little bit and And just ran through everybody. Just follow these poor bastards teammates just got humbled so that felt good. If you take the blinders off. Have some fun and just Just fuck people up I I am. I am in a pretty good Pretty good space are now. I've got a good workplace Before me right now and I've got a bunch of eager guys. I ready to get back in the gym So yeah we're not. I mean we've already kind of got over the whole idea and I'm just looking for the next thing now. The last time we spoke you were actually in the Middle East for that fighters for freedom tour and you were talking about viewing things in a different light through that experience. You know what the soldiers deal with overseas things. You may have taken for granted but I think the most important thing to you was being able to form your own opinions about a lot of these different global topics and not going along with the perceptions of others like looking back. How much is that? Experience helped you when it comes to the corona virus. And what's going on in the world right now? I mean so much I mean mild thing and it's kind of like a philosophy that transcends everything is that like stagnation death like like movements life. You need it and so for me. My biggest thing was like I'm just not going to pander to these fears and insanity that people are running with like I'm just GonNa keep letting my life these act saying. That's exactly what I did like. I train the same. I operate the same pretty much every capacity that Iran. The only thing was going to the the grocery store you know felt like apocalyptic now or whatever you know it's like a like the fucking world was about to burn down but but other than that like I stated my bubble always home gym home gym training partners. Fortunately it seems like Brazilian. Just don't give a fog so I I had the all the crew there you know we were. We were getting things done Pretty much the same and it was It was good. We just I just didn't I. Didn't you know indulge the fears? I just kept moving. I kept working and when I got sick I just kept working and Now fucking eighth. I should update Kobe's probably trying to deal with me right now. Figure out like the NFL to conquer my shit. I probably talked about so. I'm not I'm not I'm not like I'm just not worried about it. And and the more you know information comes out with the ratios death ratios and people start kind of realizing that we've been categorizing everything into this cove umbrella. You know the more I hope people kind of be like okay. This isn't maybe everything is cracked up to be is not the in. The world is not something to like really even hide from you know. Just just take care of yourself like like like anything else helps found within you know and And so I think we just need to operate assaults ourselves take care of ourselves beer best version of ourselves before we go. I don't know pointing fingers. Creating proxy conspiracies. Or whatever the fuck else like you just take care of yourself. Get back on track a lot and And so I think I think that helps. I mean without do with the Middle East thing I think is being level headed. You know just maintaining a level one. You mentioned that you were sick. Your coaches sick. Do you think I don't know if he got tested? You mentioned things about testing and really get into it too much. Do you think you had it at all or do you think you just my dad's my head coach did Abbott and breathing that dude's air. So maybe I did yeah Maybe by just fucked it out decision. I had to get ready for a fight. That's what I was GONNA do. I said that's what I was going to do. And that's what I did in the best shape of my life so I'm ready to Take on whatever challenge are ready to fight any opponent that's available here in the states. I'm ready for whatever I guess you know you're talking about. I guess maybe just perspectives and things like that with that trip or any other trip. I've done honor just One thing that I was able to do was have understanding and sympathy for The Russians leaving prematurely. I mean if they left me maturity but maybe they didn't you know those flight bans are coming up the likelihood. The fight was was slim. You know dim dim outlook for sure and then ended up happening anyways and so I have to go back to their country and get back to their. You know their homes their families. I can understand that and so for it wasn't something that I liked dwelled over. It wasn't something like talked on. I just got back to it. And and my flip. Yeah makes you deal with me? Did but yeah I was just. I was just ready for the next thing. So that's that's what we did. Yeah I thought it was kind of interesting because you know the market chef fight was the one that was lineup and then once we figured out he was off the card. Omar Morales was slated to be your new opponent. I mean he's undefeated at a great win on the contender series got to win in the UFC. No disrespect to Omar but to go from top fifteen guy to a surging prospect. Like Omar. Were you happy with that match up because I was a little surprised to see that name? If we're being honest here and that goes back to the rollercoaster ride and I just had to like this camp was able to take over my mind and kind of get back to this cavalier state of not giving a fuck at all I was. I was training and prepared to fight like a man who had nothing to lose. I wasn't worried about shit and so You know there's a fight on fight off okay now. My opponents out of the country for sure out. Okay now I don't have a location. I don't have an opponent that goes by for a whole week. Try not to check out then. Okay now we got a list of names. I thought Michael Johnson was going to be the name and then the next day it was like this. Is Omar Morales Guy? You got ten minutes. Do you want him or not. Okay what happened the other ones? Those other guys are off the table. Do you want sky? Not I mean fuck you I wanna fight so just give me the guy. I don't care who it is. Just give me the guy okay. This guy's got the Guy Meikeljohn. Scotty Guy Everybody got guy they lined up the car and you know and then one week before fell out but it was just you just had to be malleable and and roll with the punches. You know multiple whatever you know everything else because all I can do is try and and and sometimes that's not even really picking your opponent is just who you got able and who do they want you to fight and it seemed like that's who they wanted me to fight so what. I was going to do by the same token though I've never had an opponent that wasn't top fifteen guy I've ever got fought since I've entered the AFC. And I didn't come off of you know another giant organization just came out of fucking you know the with a humble record of under ten fights everybody that I fought At the time assigning was top fifteen ranked opponent. You know. Even if they weren't by the time we actually got to the card. What we were negotiate. They.

"You're staying home but at least staying active and trying to make the best of this crazy situation. We've got a fantastic lineup of guests for the show this week but the MA wheel just continues to turn doesn't like a lot of news has come out over the last several days we got the NFL. They have canceled or postponed their twenty twenty season. They reportedly released about a third of their roster on top of that. But they're going to be paying a a stipend to the remaining fighters on the roster and I certainly understand the decision to do that. I was a little surprised. Did so early. But if you really take a look at the roster from top to bottom there's lot of international fighters so being able to pull off a a season especially under this format would have been very difficult to do. Bela Tor they have postponed. Bella tour to forty four which is supposed to go down on June six in Chicago headlined by the rematch between Michael Chandler and Benson Henderson. So that fight. That card is going to be pushed to another day. Bell Tower is however looking to kick-start things back up June maybe July sometime in the summer and host events from a Hollywood sound stage. It's kind of like the old days of studio professional wrestling perhaps like WCW Saturday night back. In the day for US elder statesman that grew up during that time maybe they can have the the cage on one of those circular things that spins around between fights but a that'll be pretty interesting to see once that comes out and of course with the UFC may ninth is very much a thing. We found out earlier this week. It's gotta be called. Ufc Two forty nine and as a reported on Tuesday multiple sources confirm to me and other members of the site that the event will take place somewhere in the state of Florida. I WANNA give a shout out to Lynn for creating the greatest fight graphic of all time when it came to that event you can check it out on our instagram page. But you know the from from what we gathered. The fighters the teams. They're scheduled to fly into Jacksonville Florida to get ready for fight week. Although the actual physical location has not been revealed at this time. We don't know what the Hell is going to happen. But we're going to keep posting all that but of course you'll see to forty nine two point. Oh we'll be headlined by Tony Ferguson. Versus just engaged for the interim lightweight title Henry Pseudo versus dominant crews for the bantamweight title. And how Tony Ferguson? Successfully weighing in this past Friday at one fifty five on the nose there is only one L. Kukui. We're GONNA be talking about that. The event itself in a whole lot more this week. On what the Heck's let's run down the lineup. Let you know how this is all going down this week later on the show. We're going to chat with Frankie. Edgar the former. Ufc lightweight champion. A little more than ten years ago captured that title by defeating. Bj Penn at UFC. One twelve in Abu Dhabi. We're going to talk to the answer all about that. What he's been up to during these quarantine times plans to move to one thirty five and much more. Ufc reporter Laura. Sanco is going to return to the show to talk about all the changes that have happened in the UFC. Over the last couple of weeks she was actually supposed to come on last week. And there's a bit of a story there plus we're GonNa talk about a whole bunch of other things. Ross GonNa talk to Gilbert Dherinia Burns. This guy has been trying to get a fight. Since he defeated Damien. Maya finished him in the first round of Brazilian as of now he hasn't been able to find that fights. We're GONNA check in with the reigning twitter champion Gilbert Burns later on the show. Dominic radius is GONNA join us a couple months removed from that awesome fight with John Jones. Ufc Two forty-seven in February as you all know by now. John Jones got. The decision is still the champion. But it's one of those controversial decisions that we're still talking about but we're going to check in with the devastator in around twenty five minutes or so but first we're going to check in with Alexander Hernandez who was supposed to fight on both iterations of the April Eighteenth version of you have to forty nine. I it was going to be is on market. Jeff in Brooklyn then undefeated. Omar Morales was going to be his opponent at Tachi Palace before the event was just off the table for April eighteenth altogether his name as you may have noticed was not on the fight card for May ninth air.

What else to burgers chili dog? Chicken tenders? I remember you had two bags, and you and you were holding too. Yeah. Yeah. It was cookout. Throwdown every meal. I mean, you know on on on certain occasions what we spent all day out calories. Consumed date, you know, the kind of giving you the clipboard and study, this is all your body chemistry lines. Go by calories, especially you know, because focus on a lot of high fats. And when you get a lot of Fettes you eat a lot of calories. You know? But you know, most of that. I think it depends on where your calories are coming from. You know, they give me the whole breakdown and everything how much my body burns per day. Just sitting doing nothing burn like thirty one hundred calories. But then I I don't like like, I don't I don't like. The average even thousand that's faster metabolisms thirty. I think but they say that. But then for like an average male my age, or whatever it was like twenty seven hundred over. I was like thirty two thirty one in. I don't know. I don't I don't count calories. I mean, that's just kind of pointless over prediction on the Super Bowl. Patriots. The rams. I don't watch okay page. How many years has it been that patriots are in the Super Bowl? I feel like every at least have of since I've been alive. The patriots have been in a Super Bowl. Yeah. And they always lose. So we're about John Jones. Are you are you guys laughing that off the dole jacket thing? I heard you say something about look at one point. We're entertaining. Like, not not a fight because he's heavy. But something about you won't beat me up. And yeah, yeah. Yeah. I mean, but we'll have. I'm just going. You know, you'll talk talk low share Matola Masha back down. I mean, I I don't you know, I'll really like him necessarily. I mean, I don't really, you know, I got some respectful skill set for sure, but I'm not like in a way this whole, you know, kinda have drug tests. You know, I'm kind of pop in.

"I say potential because John still has to be licensed by Nevada State Athletic commission. But that's the fight. They're trying to put together he says, I think it's goddamn mazing. All these people are suing that if me and John Jones fight he's gonna get me out of there in one round. He doesn't hit any harder than whose demure and Hector Lombard. He's not any better of a wrestler for the most part of guys that I fought and he's not any better jitsu guy than all the guys. I fought he puts together better than anyone that's in the game right now. But he doesn't. Wow, me anywhere, especially the fight that just had. I wasn't impressed. And I don't mean it wasn't a fantastic performance. Because it was but I didn't watch the fight and thing I couldn't handle that. I saw guy that has holes that can be exploited as long as you attack it in the right way. What's he gonna say? Well, but it's just a killer something that he was on the the UFC tonight as a guest analyst. And he was like, what are you? What are you talking to me? John Jones, like eight don't use this as a platform to. This is my moment. Type of thing. Don't be using this as a platform to better your career type. I think something like that, you know. Show after two thirty to play the clip Chris. All right. All right. You had it ready? No, no. All right. Who said it to him? But it is. Well, John Jones entities. Who me? He's like, he's a nice guy. I don't think he was. I think he was just, you know, maybe a little nervous of being an analyst and those guys coming out of what the funk, but hey, man, I wanna see that fight. I watched that fight. I watched the fight tomorrow. I would too. I mean, he's a well rounded guy, he's fighting better. Now that he's up this week Klis and. You know, listen, this is the sport of upsets, he's got a skill set on them very much on Jones. Where do you think the problem is if you're John Jones, what do you got power coming out? And but like what what's the what is the thing that have these Smith is going to do to put John in trouble over the course of that fight if you had to well, I think it would. It would have to be on his feet. I can't see him taking him down and having his way with him. Because I think his his grappling is too strong. I could see I could see John Jones, you know, using his his wrestling than than his ground game from here on out, right hurting, a lot of people, Iran. I mean, I think that's the why take a chance when this guy's in this, you know, he's swinging with a lot of dangerous guys and he's battling. And you know, he's gonna nickname Wyan heart. I mean, you don't get that by not being a fucking. Plus it you get that writing a chicken liver. Correct. Chivvy? You know when John was out for a while. I think it was when he got suspended the first time, whatever was he I interviewed and he was talking about he was doing a lot of ju jitsu and one of his goals was to never be punched. Again, he wanted to get to the point where he was so good at his grappling gypsy that nobody could ever land another punch on him. And it's interesting you're saying that like, I think you're right. I think the wrestling and the the grappling is going to become a bigger part of his career as he goes forward. I mean heating smoke. I mean, he did. I mean, he handled the fight everywhere. It was but he really smoked you know, his Guston on the floor. I mean smoke them. They got the floor on that list when settled twenty seconds. So, you know, standing up it was still, you know, he might hurt his leg, and it will go and he's having his way. But it's not like he was put it autumn. And he got on top. It's just a matter of not even minutes. I mean, he's he's advances position and was dangerous. All how so listen, man. I think..

But there are there isn't a featherweight rankings yet because the division hasn't been filled out or whatever this such. Alright just threw me off with let me see here. What's going to happen? And for MandA not a lot of people. I mean, Holly home is definitely that styles make fights. That's an interesting fight. Because you know, she would you know, I I mean, she's very skilled standing, and she's more of the matadors he's inches out. Just got the kicks.

She was supposed to fight on the twenty second of September. But she pulled out due to a knee injury. Like in August of. So I I would assume she. Four months ago. She's probably getting ready to fight again. Okay. Does she have anybody lined up and has she fought Holly outta hollies? Esta has she fought against you can't fight your main because that someone's gonna fight Amanda. Right. Well, I mean like like you're saying I mean Holly is definitely an interesting matchup against Amanda. But she's already matched up. Can't Lavera could be in the mix germane to renovated probably guy beat random over that just because calendar hasn't fought and the one that you say earlier we talked about dean Thomas he was on. Joe Rogan's podcast one. Is he going to be in here? He'll be on Thursdays show next week so Wednesday for. Cowboy come in. I think how I mean still trying to lock it down a particular time, but he would be on Thursday shows. Well, so he becoming almost so he becoming the same day as all right? Why? No more than Marya here usually comes in with a posse though. So does have some chance, you know? Don't you worry? We'll he'll say, hey, listen, man. My buddy Deane Tom is coming to town.

I don't usually I've I've been on a lot of planes, and is probably one of the worst have out everybody the whole night or just coming in everybody got quiet, and I was on the way back coming home. How how long how long was the turbulent? I listen on YouTube on like it was like twenty five minutes. I go on YouTube and turbulence videos, by the way, was the entire that house that it's fun. People scream. Yeah. It was socially twenty-five, thirty minutes when I was going into my gig in Seattle, I had to fly, you know, they come through Portland or whatever and an hour before like we're going to have the flight attendant sit seal like you have an hour of fucking bad Pacific northwest turbulence that was horrible to planes tilting. Yeah. But I've also saw diagram once on the outside of somebody drew a diagram didn't computer animation. This what you feel inside what it's just jostling shaking.

"We are back one thing. We should mention too much has not been officially seven the blue. But rose will defend her belt against Jessica on drudge those according to Dana white who is yes, he is an employee of the of C I understand who she is ranked number one over you ought to JJ who's been dropped down to number two. I guess after three straight losses now. Yes. The two rows. And then she just lost Valentina. But that was up close, obviously. But he is still a loss. And you wonder what does that do to join his psyche? If anything she was twelve am I wrong with twelve now, she's twelve and three. Yeah. I can check. I think you're right unless you had an loss earlier in her career now she was undefeated undefeated. And I wonder what these losses due because that first one was such a devastating loss. First round tap out due to strikes and the second one was very good. She said she was better trained, and she the way cut wasn't as bad. And they went the distance that you lost. She clearly lost as she clearly lost the sheets. She won the second one. Well, she might be somebody thought that are Lobski one twenty seven fucking thirty twenty seven over Walt Harris, she was fourteen and then she lost a rose twice. Then we forgot she BT Chautauqua is and then she lost three of four. But okay. Okay. So she did come back and have a win after did you teasha by decision? That was decision. Yes. She's not not anybody out. And I think that for fighters who are always winning or losing by decision at adds a lot around. Oh, for sure I mean, her knockouts came earlier. Against Jessica Panay, Carla spars owner I fight, but they were volume knockouts. You know, I it wasn't like she was just one punch knocking people out that size. It's a little tougher. But that's what's interesting about Jessica on drums who who has ridiculous power at one hundred fifteen pounds. She just knocked out the Carolina. What's what's her record? Let's double check. The. She is nineteen and six one three straight clogging daily, teasha tours and caroliina she knocked out with. Pretty devastating fashion. And what Jimmy exactly who do you think Amanda fights next? Oh, man, put up the where where am I I'm guessing calendar if she's hoping is defeat I wanna say she's nine an hour. My completely often which division we're talking about. Now now that she's a chill bantamweight. Now. She's a chance there's really nobody else's featherweight and the beating was so bad. You can't justify a rematch yet with looking right here. You had it on the road one. No, no. I just had I had scroll down. So you could see the rest of the she'd never fought Holly amend, Holly. She hasn't right? No. That could be that. That's number two. Germain matched up to Aspen lad, those. She has coming up. She's not Holly take again. That's an interesting holiday take because she's going down to fighting number seven. But why not hold out for cancer gun is already? On their Nghien. Megan she counted as Richie she's not a bantam, she fed away..

"And when I watched him fight Hinton Barral for that first time when he was I think he's like twelve and one and hidden Barral was or maybe like twelve in two or something in Barral was like thirty two and one and he just had to get the call to get pulled up last minute, and he's a super underdog. And when I wash them go out there and put that display on did, I shed a fucking tear. It was the most like magnificent thing I've ever seen. And it wasn't just a skill is the fact that he rose that occasion. And put on the way he did. I mean that was like. Beyond glorious and like magnifying, but a person could do so ever since. Like, I gotta watch this do. So then I like started, you know, going through the archives dillashaw and just just really get into. And then I started mixing my style up like him. How for not point I start really switching stances. And so he was the guy you kind of got me to start switching stances heavily. And then I got his go my legs. I did my right and started of picking up some of those moves by still mixed in like kind of a little GSP. And then of course, you know, you guys like the Greg from the scene, and that's like holy fuck. That's a whole nother style right there. And so I started trying to pick up McGregor style movement characteristics, rather? And then you get even guys like fucking could even their pressure on the ground. And I just a little things the way I do on the cage to defend him one day. And then also just kind of a little bit more fish in my grip. So I'm I'm very respectful, these guys games, you know. And certainly not a buff thinking that like I've got all the answers because these guys paid the way for a reason so guys crews like really really hard guys to train for or hard guys to figure. Out there. You know, that's a good guy to kind of want to at least learn something from because he seems like a very very hard guy to prepare because he strikes in every way, and he's extremely hard to figure extreme more than anything. I wanted to be unorthodox. I wanted to be unique and unorthodox. And so I put my own flavor on on their on their foundations. You did. Well, then we're really fun fighter to watch. And they have a lot of faith and you put in you up against cowboy. And again, if it's the main event of the prelims, they know people are gonna be watching that fight. That's always a good fight. And cavalry never fights down there. So you're his first fight back lightweight in a long time. So let's see how he handles that. That's a fifteen pound cut from what he's having to use to. It's not typical ten pound drop. So we'll see if that affects or cardio at all try this time. I heard you against me last time partner who I bet against you. That's what I heard all. You know what dude? I wasn't familiar. You had one fight with door news rush. Rush. Right. And you start them. But there wasn't a lot to really base it on. And I I seen a little bit more tape on mercy. But I'll tell you, man. I'm I'm put me on the spot. I'll be on. I'm I think about this. I'm gonna think about this, Alex. And listen, I hold you very if it was just how exander you tell him. What's that? If you're gonna just take out. I'm on the fence. Not going to be on the fence. I'm on the fence right now. But I'm gonna think about this because I was just watching both fights before we called, you gotta think about eighty gotta really think about it. But I do listen, it's exciting and Alana is going to be on it and. Listen, you're gonna listen this episode end of it. You'll have this. You'll find out what's. It's very tough to picky. Cowboy too though because he just he he wins a lot of people don't expect them to win. And then he won't look as good for a fight because he fights every two weeks. So a couple of fights. He'll look like, oh, no. He's lost two straight. And then he just starts winning again. He's a really really hard gotta best as well..

My won't and Lewis Georgia. Parents split when I was three. So I moved over there. And then when my mom died when I was ten I moved over to Texas with my dad, all okay. And then you got involved obviously in mixed martial arts when when you were there, what got you involved in it. I just started wrestling. So my dad Russell through high school, and maybe a little before, but he rests the rice school and me being we come from like a series of short jeans. And so I I grew up playing basketball back home. And then I kinda realized I was just too short and I sucked. And so we thank God. Let me in, you know, more suitable sports. So wrestling was great because also like a terrible lay bloomer probably Peabody details like twenty three and so power pound needs something to my vantage. And so I got into wrestling weighing ninety eight pounds freshman year and just kept at it. And that was probably the most testing terrifying. Years of my life though, like freshman sophomore year of having to getting wrestling and just take on all the qualities of that sport livers, you know, I I grew up wrestling relatively felt like that was my entire life there for about six years, and then ended up not doing it in college and then found found jitsu Moi tie. And then found my head coach I've been listening to the beginning Jason guarantee that'll haunt academy. And and the rest of kinda history just sort of you're sort of picked up for fun wrestling courses like that phenomenal base. I guess you get through an entire immature career and. Part of the way into professional one to badge start scrapping with those guys. And it was kinda like all right? Maybe go in and try amateur bout. There's this TV show and south Texas for amateurs, I did. And then got my first bout did that enough? And then it was like, okay. I mean, we go ahead and do professional someone professional, and then you know, kind of kept on that way. And you've talked to about really like loving TJ dillashaw, we're extra talking TJ and a little while while I mean, he is really one of my favorite guys to watch. What was it about him that kind of resonated? Yeah. So I and I do I do love TJ dillashaw, but I don't blow his dick like core may have me..

"And this would put you on the map, it don't get me wrong. Just came over to tough guys on. Fortunately, not a lot of guys know those guys besides the people that are like the die hards like us. We know those guys are the average fans all I know that cowboy guys wacky or whatever they they like him they they know him. So I mean how. That for the motivation for his any different each fight is the biggest fight of your life. But this is feeling different. Finding a guy with this recognition marriage, exciting thrilling, there's nothing more to it. You know, people keep asking me about about the about the name. And I keep saying I don't give a shit about his name or the promotion, the venue the city. No disrespect, of course, New York and Brooklyn the credible. But I mean, like, I'm not I'm not building this up in my mind like that. I don't pay attention these guys. I don't I don't watch a lot of footage in my spare time, I don't watch ten fights in my spare time there's a few guys I like to watch and study and any late, and I pay attention my own growth. But if I spent all this time doing on the patch, I've already accomplished shit. He's accomplished. And there would be no space for me to focus on the future. So Cowboys cowboy and I separate that entirely from whatever like image is built up or or you know, the media behind it or all that other shit. You still just a poor sold out STAN across from me in my cage. And so. I'm not worried about I'm not worried about anything that that his title brings to the table. And at the end the day should just another man. Sure. Sure. I think Cowboys just the the range of fighters that he's fought and just little level of experience and the level of competition. He's faced would you say that this is the guy who's probably faced the toughest it has he faced the better fighters of all the guy's face before. Cowboys is is the most dangerous forty five. So yeah, pretty good array of a folks scrap with say, he's probably the most. Well, he's coming. He's coming back though. I mean, he was five and four a welter weight and he's coming back down, and maybe know mentioning fighting Connor maybe if he ever did that he wants to be accustomed to fighting lightweight again. But I wonder if he's coming down because he just was not not enjoying being hit by guys that size will this way cut at this point have any kind of an effect on because you're you're obviously such a fast fighter in your move soil. You know? I don't know it seems like he's he's almost temperamental in his decisions. You know? And he's always looking for for an escape, it seems you know, things aren't going well from if I let me run a seventy things are going. Well, it seventy on me when get back to fifty five, and I guess things we're going to be finished that big fight Perry. But he's always looking for something else. And against me looking guy with a hundred percent of his focus on one thing in one mission one of one purpose, and I'll be damned if I got a guy who put sixty percent, seventy whatever the hell, it is and the one splits his time because he's seeking out..

"I'm definitely taking full advantage of that. So you at least recognize the cowboy is a pretty big to main event a big stage to be on. Yeah. Huge. You know, I don't I don't see him as any more threatening than turn. All do. You know, I have most respect for that fight as I do this one. This just happened to have a bigger name behind it. He's also name and wake ac- to the game. So for me, this is like the perfect step up in competition for my career to catapult me into the next limelight. The next level of, you know, just competitive fear and talk and say, I apologize. It's the main event of the ESPN prelims the main event, of course, it's on the T J pseudo card, but it's still a big spot to be in. I mean because cowboy normal doesn't fight on the prelims. No, I so the way that that same interview referring to him may junkie the way they laid it out, which I'm hoping is the case, we're actually I'm we're on actually SPN, and then the pay per view is kind of like an ESPN. Plus is that correct? Yeah. Yeah. That's that's that's fucking brilliant. I wanna be happier about that. And I think it's just again as a testament that the shares the same vision idea of you know, me being the future of this as Asian not just a division. Well, you are ten in one. I mean, you're you're obviously, I mean this'll be third fight in in the US. The first fight you had against dare us. I have to ask you about the opening of like you came out like you're about to touch loves through a beautiful kick to the body. Now was that intentionally just to try to relax him for a second. Or did you change your mind as it was happening? No. And I'm really my back in the talk touches their backhand. I was I was just framing. Yeah. Yeah. So it was more of a range depth shot. I've been planning the entire week that I need to disrupt cadences aggressively as possible 'cause they're uses a slow stalker. You know, he likes to he likes to build momentum. And then corner his opponent and keep them caged. And then when he feeds off that and gets his his his confidence, and aggression, you know, based on based on his opponent dwindling. I guess the cage. So for me I wanted to disrupt all that immediately. And I thought putting a foot hardwood? What helps so? Okay. Yeah. The idea was to charge as fast as I could being the bunch and then kind of project the next the next shots to follow. So once once I landed that, and then I saw that overhead of the hook. I'm merely new you know, you and I had to completely different speeds. And so it was only a matter of time before I caught that hand you gotta tough wrap on that. Because Rogan when we saw it just now, wait a second. And he go to and then we watched it again. In Rogan, call to the same way. All we faked the touch so it did look. But then when you look at it, you did have your arms out. It's not like you had your hand up palm towards him to go within are used to punch clubs. I think he went to was met with a foot in the fucking face. Pander that shit. You know, I can't tell you what he was thinking. But my intent was never to the pool like quick one over his head. I just I just try to line them up. It was like I haven't those are my scopes, I was nearing him in. And then I shot a shot. Now cowboy Cowboys a huge name. I mean is the names like this the McGregor the the DA's, and and then like right on like Neath that I'm gonna say that a little bit mcgregor's up there. But I mean Cowboys right there. He's huge. He's huge in the UFC, people know who cowboy Surani is this would be a huge feather in your cap..
