"Events in Sudan, these last few days have moved swiftly and in the general direction of downhill. At least 185 people are known to have been killed in fighting which began this past weekend, perhaps ten times that many injured, these are almost certainly woeful underestimates. I made calls to generals burhan and hamadi. Urging them to agree to a 24 hour ceasefire to allow Sudanese to safely reunite with their families. And to obtain desperately needed relief supplies. A 24 hour ceasefire agreed on Tuesday, barely lasted 24 minutes. It is difficult to expect much better of another ceasefire agreed for later today. Citizens of Sudan's capital Khartoum report outages of water and electricity and shortages of food and medicines. We're safe. The power has been out. That was something, you know, it's like, I don't even know what it is anymore. All of which is by way of noting that in such fluid circumstances, it is not possible to entirely insulate and explain as such as this against the possibility of being overtaken by events. The event that it would be vastly preferable to be overtaken by would be an agreement by all concerned to knock it off, but as of this recording, this seems depressingly unlikely. With due acknowledgment that things are inevitably more complicated than this, there are two protagonists whose character and motivation are crucial to what has happened and what might. One is general Abdel Fattah Al burhan, the other is general Muhammad hamdan dagalo. I will continue to function until the reigns of power are handed over to an elected government, I simply wish to serve my people truly unfaithfully after that I will have no political role. Abdul Fattah Al barhan is the commander of Sudan's armed forces and has also been these last three years the de facto president of Sudan, as head of something currently trading in the grand tradition of old school military junta's disguising themselves with blandly bureaucratic sounding corporate identities as the transitional military council. Muhammad hamdan dagalo is usually known as hemeti, which will stick with from here out for reasons of clarity. Hemeti commands a paramilitary outfit called the rapid support forces or RSF, which evolved from the Arab militias which became deservedly infamous as the janjaweed during the Darfur war of the early years of this century and were also dispatched abroad to Yemen and Libya as a semi deniable Sudanese mercenary legion. The janjaweed commander of the Darfur war period Ali Muhammad Ali Abdel Rahman also known as Ali kushite is currently answering for his conduct in The Hague. Albert and hamiti have not always been opponents. Indeed, they connived in Sudan's most recent coup's day tar in April 2019, they unloaded overstaying tyrant and war crimes in IT, president Omar al-Bashir, and established what looked a maybe vaguely promising joint civilian military arrangement to steer Sudan towards democracy. In October 2021, the pair elbow decide the civilian politicians and declared the military unequivocally in charge. Al burhan as head of state, his deputy. A competent and independent government will take care of the country onto the upcoming elections. The current spectacular falling out between Albert and meti is a byproduct of and reason for the recent failure to form a new transitional government, which was supposed to have occurred this month. It is a fundamental principle of functional democracy that a nation's military serves the government as opposed to the other way around, as has more often been the case in Sudan. Accordingly, Hermes RSF would need to be absorbed into the Sudanese military proper and presumably at least as Albert imagined placed under the command of Al burhan. Possibly more to the point, Hermes considerable business empire, which includes a lucrative line in gold mines, might therefore end up being rested from his control. And both men have still more tawdry reasons for wanting to cling on to power. Al burhan and tometi have been frequently and plausibly implicated in the same atrocities in Darfur for which Omar al-Bashir was indicted by the International Criminal Court. The path from out of office to in the clink is a fairly well trodden one. May also have a case to answer at home or abroad for the 2019 incident in which the RSF attacked civilian pro democracy protesters occupying a stadium in Khartoum, killing and or raping dozens. To be clear, are both unregenerate thugs, though Albert probably has the better table manners. If they have decided that this is a zero sun winner takes all sorts of contests, the prognosis for Sudan's 45 million people is bleak. The Sudanese armed forces commanded by Albert are believed to number just north of 200,000 troops, and Mehdi's RSF may be around 70,000, but probably better trained better equipped and more motivated. And it is clear enough that RSF counts among its allies, the Wagner group, the Russian mercenary racket on which the RSF seems increasingly modeled. It has been credibly reported that the RSF has helped run Sudanese gold to Russia via Dubai to fund Wagner's participation in Vladimir Putin's rampage in Ukraine, visited Moscow last February as the invasion began. Russia does have long-term ambitions in Sudan not least of a Red Sea naval base, but it is at least presumable that Russia perceives a short term interest in causing diplomatic and strategic headaches in places other than Europe. The heads of state from the other countries have convened so that we can take charge of not just the organization, but also take charge of the situation. In our region. Various regional leaders have volunteered themselves as interlocutors. President Salva Kiir of South Sudan, president Ismail Omar guelleh of Djibouti, president Abdel Fattah el sisi of Egypt, prime minister William Ruto of Kenya, all will be reasonably concerned about the prospects of any lasting war over spilling Sudan's borders, causing further disruption to that which is already disrupted. Of Sudan's 7 neighbors, 5 are beset by armed conflict of some kind. In the immediate future, it is much easier to imagine how this could get worse than it is to perceive grounds for optimism.

"You also get in the judge's head. You also get everyone, there's no such thing as a fair fight. And everybody kind of was against you, and the only way to really cemented it was to put him away. So, you know, I guess that's something to think for the rematch. No, I know that you said you were gonna hit Dana with the belt afterwards. If you try to put the data saying you have to fight, like great fight oh yeah, you know, he's had great fight. You know, he's fine. He's finding my book. We're cool now. So, you know, it is what it is. So you and Dana are cool, you and Rogan are cool. Come up to you and you guys make up, you and Misha? Nah, she's still a shill for that other company in Asia. So who gives a shit about her, you know, the only reason she's famous is because she put all those leaked Internet photos. Supposedly leaked, but we all know that they were at least she put that up there to get publicity and notoriety. So she's just one of the fakest people I know mayhem like she was selling fights off drama with Rhonda and that she wants to talk shit about me for selling fights with drama. It's like the girl is such a hypocrite and two face and she makes no sense. Now Ali Abdul Aziz said he has, you have his respect. Seem like he's been extending an olive branch. Are you buying it or do you think this is a some kind of a ruse? I'm not buying it. And you know, I never buy anything that Ali Abdel asleep.

"And even though he's never been finished, I'm gonna be the first 'cause nobody's actually ever really ran up on him and got his understanding of him. I understand Chris wade, I understand Chris wait. Don Frey? Anything you want to say? Don Don great, man. I'm going to put some money on you there, Jenkins. Do it. I want to know, so you're down the final four, correct? Final four 5 9 versus two fights left familiar now. Ten of us with ten alternates. So it's about 20 of us. Now we're down to the final four. So do you get is it just a million for the winner and everybody else just gets like 5000 or is it in steps to get the million? If I gave you, that's to get to know him. Depend on, I mean, shit. Three of the four guys in the finals are all have the same agent. Me, me, Chris wade. And the Russian boy all have Ali Abdel Aziz is our agent. So we're probably all getting pretty pretty handsome. And me more handsomely than them. 'cause I am more handsome than them in a better fighter. But that's neither here nor there. What are we negotiating for coming up to the lead up to this fight? So you'll get, you know, some people got 50,000 a show in 50,000 a win. And then you would add, maybe you got a 100,000 a show in a 100,000 to win. And then you would dance and then maybe you got 250,000 a show. And 250,000 a win. And then your fads and maybe you get 500 in the finals to win and 500 and to ain't saying that that's the numbers. I'm just saying, you know, if I was asking for a friend, you know, that's kind of how it works. Okay, so good. You're getting paid either way, man. That's what I get to eat either way, yeah. Those tournaments may always stunk when 15 guys walk away with ten grand and then somebody gets a million. It always like Chris lytle lost The Ultimate Fighter finale to Matt Serra on the comeback season and he got $10,000 and Sarah walked with two 50, I think..

"And then after I'm done, you know, UFC, I'd love to get into politics, maybe be a governor, maybe, maybe look to join a congressional race but you know, I'm a fighter at heart and I want to fight for people. Now, there was a video, a picture of you with like Ali abdel-aziz and Trump, I think. So who do was there? It was found was there. I believe he was there. No duct lift gauge. He was their job. She was there now, but if you have like, beef with Ali, you call them Ali. Abdullah sleeves and he went after you. Did they tell you listen, don't get no fight in the White House like you can tell you. Hey man, if you guys got a squash to be, let me go here. Yeah. We he doesn't have the privilege because he's, you know, a terrorist snitch and and allegedly, you know, he here at it out all his friends from Egypt. So he does not have the the invite to ever go to the White House. But you know, before my fight in Vegas, would would lie, you know, Donald Trump, the greatest president history was having a rally at the Las Vegas Convention Center. So off we went to one of his rallies. One of his, you know speaking engagements and were able to hang out with them backstage a little bit and then go listen to him speak onstage as fire up 30,000 Las Vegas and and you know just enjoyed our time there. But you know like I put all that personal stuff aside you know like that's that's business and yeah we have we have a relationship where we hate each other with that guy that you're talking about. But you know, when I'm in front of The Prestige United States. I'm always on my best behavior. Adam, I'm not going to do something to jeopardize, you know, our relationship. I'm not going to put him In Harm's Way. I'm not going to do something that's going to make him look bad, or make me look bad. So, you know, I'm the ultimate business meant so but then tell you, hey you, what did you want to say to each other or anything? No, he knows. Better than to look at me, dude. That guy is the biggest slime ball in the world. Maybe tried to come and fight me one time at the Palms, which it got, you know, the I know that one of the outlets picked it up TMZ and it was a big thing. But he tried to swing on me at the Palms, man. Like, dude, you're not even a fighter. You're a manager. What's your record as a fighter? He was like, one in three is a fighter. The guy's a complete joke and the fact is going to come and try and swing on the number one fighter in the world was absolutely laughable. So, you know, I have nothing against the guy, you know? It was fun, right? It was with this amount of time. Yeah. Yeah. He was with this but yet, why is it not going to try and swing on me? Because he knows what's going to happen. If he swings on me that he's going to get repercussions that he's not going to like so you know why do you have your manager coming to swing on me? So it's just a joke man. The guys are clamped clowns. I mean nobody. Who trust that guy like that guy is the most dirty. Fricking Shady guy in the world. And then there was a time that you and Matt Hughes went to the White House and you guys, he might give friends Matthews somebody with a began Lambert, home, three days later. You said the train is coming, get out of the way, and especially you Matthews, who got hit by a train like that was like the, like the one of the worst things..
