"So this person was not be from this country. Let me explain something to you guys from Europe here very quickly. I see a lot of people in Europe look at NFL highlights and say, oh, these guys don't know how to tackle. Please understand not one of your rugby players would make starting squad. They can barely make the NFL to begin with. And it's not because they're not good athletes. It's because you dogs in Europe. Do not understand what you are looking at. I'm not asking you to like American football hell after yesterday's results. I'm not sure I like it either. You have to understand this is a country of nearly four hundred million people are very best athletes. The guys who they get measured at the combine what does the combine when you are graduating from college and or declaring for the NFL draft, they go and measure. I know we have to stop your physical skills finish the answer. And here's what happens they test your jump. Your speed. On the forty yard. Dash your bench press, all the physical things that tell us although bench press is not necessarily in much of an indication of strength. Nevertheless, there physicality is beyond compare beyond compared. Oh, yes. It is somewhat situated in the sense that it's meant for athletic short bursts rather than long five around fights. But they're all different kinds of athleticism is you sane both dot as athletic as a thorough Bjornson. They're different kinds of athletes. The guys who play in the NFL and the guys who are all pro in the NFL are stunned athletes, some of the very best in the entire world. Greg hardy is one of them. First of all we have him see him in a five round fight. So we don't know in part of that is how you manage your energy, which we can also tell you he didn't really manage his energy all that. Well, how good of a fighter? Greg hardy will be I don't know how good of an athlete. He is. That's pretty high level, folks. Make no mistake about it. And if you're from America, and you ask that question. Shame on you. All right. But nevertheless, thanks for sending it on that. Highly positive note keep the questions coming using the hashtag the our always call eight four four eight six six two four six eight. It'll be a couple of weeks before see you on this program. I'll be back for the beat on Thursday until next time. Stay frosty..

"Should they be truck and seeing how along the fighters lots of continue? I appreciate some fights the most significant Novus, but surely I'll fight it should have a fight. And so that to continue. Thank you. Right. You have a problem with stoppage. Now having some time to reflect on it. You know, I I went back last night in saw it again. And I do think it was a bit early. But I didn't think it was criminally early. Like, I didn't think TJ got robbed like it was clear that TJ was hurt. He was wobbling. And I think since the initial touch I think it was like twelve seconds. It goes that that's a who does attacking him. And I think, you know, twelve seconds might not sound like a lot. But if you're just counting one to me. Yeah. And the whole time I not your was saying, hey, I was going for that single. But he was going for the single for twelve seconds. And he couldn't get it at menu. You think you're gonna take down so Huta to maybe I'm not saying he what it is a tough ask is, especially when you've been rocked. Yes. So I think if they would have let the fight I wouldn't I wouldn't hate if they would have let the fight go on longer. I think in in these championship fights. And when when there's so much steak, I think it's okay for fighters to to take a little bit of a beating, you know, you don't wanna take now like the Dan Hooker scenario where you got somebody. That's so ya. Right. There's really nothing at stake. You already losing a lot a lot of the fight. Just call it. No. In this case, you know, let the fight go on a little bit. But I didn't think it was the worst stoppage in the world. So I went back, and I watched the Sironi and Hernandez stoppage. Hernandez was wrestling when they stopped at two now. How thoroughly he was wrestling not very he was hurt, obviously. But this idea that like, oh, he was still wrestling. Therefore, that's intelligent defense. We'll sort of like, yes, if he was just laying there. Well, that would be terrible. But that you're moving is not necessarily enough as to be really kind of coordinated and affective that you're reaching is not all that much. Look could he have probably let it go a little longer. I think that much is incontestable. Yeah. He could have let it go a little bit longer. And I don't think it would have been the end of the world. But this idea that it's some kind of egregious stoppage. You know, this is some kind of, you know, I don't know. I don't want the war stoppages the top of my head. But you know, we're it's the uniformly bad. No. I know. So I got out there and said this was a terrible stop it. He also said he thought Greg hardy looked amazing like, oh, he can definitely files. Like that was not the lesson. I took from this. I mean, I don't know about that. Maybe in the future. He will. I'm not writing them off. Right. But I didn't look at that performance particularly inspiring. So there's a lot of times you get these media narratives that begin to carry their own weight. Sorry, is it was it was an a plus stoppage. No, probably C plus B minus somewhere in there. But that's a passing grade. Yeah, for sure I would say like in the scale of okay am bad. It's a few degrees on the okay side. But you know, I don't think it was the worst thing in the world. It's not it's just totally made up phenomenon that I don't buy it. All sorry. New. I now this next caller asked two questions in one. So obviously a pertaining TJ hudo and couple of other guys. All right. All right. Guys. It's Ricardo from Toronto. I just wanted to get you as a -pinion on aftermath of teaser dose on video. I personally think he's gonna get that rematch at one hundred twenty five pounds 'cause he made a pretty strong case for it in the post fight press conference..

I talk show where they had the one fight in quickly Q matches. They done the one fight this time. It would have been half the length of J D S versus Kane one. It didn't want it that they had a much better presentation. It a really I thought a pretty good card to be honest with you. So people were bellyaching about. It I liked it. But here's what I think..

"I was getting one hundred thousand dollars a five I was going in there. Like, all right. I'll fall down the first round. Like, I'm not gonna stick around in your company for very long, no fighter thinks that way. Especially if they put in the proper training and everything that everyone whether I'm going to win or lose I'm going in there every time to try and win, you know, I'm going to give it to my all. And if they're guys that are willing to go in there and take a fall, they won't last long in the company and they'll get booted. How's your relationship with UFC amazing? Interesting. I talked to a lot of guys when they were tired, and they usually have okay. I don't want to over generalize. But often they have hard feelings station. You don't seem to. Well. No. I mean, I've I'm honored to have worked with the highest onslaught of MMA. Everybody behind the scenes was was very nice to me. And I've always been a yes man to the company. I've been fortunate enough to not have to have a real job if you will and just focus on training. Like, I said, I mean, I don't have a huge house, but I own a house. I don't have a very expensive car. But I have I mean, I had these things I've been able to put food on the table for myself, my kids and not really have to stress about bills. So it could have been worse enough. I was working a toll booth or something like that, you know. Interesting. If I hear what you're saying. I don't want to be sports organization unfairly on the other hand if you reached six in the world. And should be. I mean, that's that's one thing that I am slightly bitter about is that if I was the six if you're the six in the world in the NBA, or if you had spent eight years in the NBA like your good pay good six you could be sixty. Yeah. But I mean, if you spend eight years in the NBA like, you would have quite a lot of money, you know. The issue. Do you believe in things like unionization at all? I think I think the NFL and the NBA those are all places like that. I call it NFL money. They start getting NFL money until they got unionized. You know? But the the sport is still very young compared to the NBA and the NFL and like, you know, I'm like. You know, if I if I was younger it started later, maybe I would get these these big dollars. And then on the other end of the spectrum. I was like man if I started MMA earlier, and I was older. I would have I would have known more and been able to crush those guys out of the pioneers. You know, these big stars. Now, I like in that middle. Whereas I'm gonna tough guy, you know. Favorite fight would be what the people remember, of course, two thousand thirteen you beat max Holloway. Is that your favorite win? Well at the time, I know it's not my favorite win. What's your favorite one? Probably probably the Matt Greis fight. That was a dogfight. Yeah. Because I remember as soon as that final bell wrong just being like and gasping for air because I had left it everything. I had in the gones there. Yeah. You You know? know? Least favourite fight. Not so much because of the way the judges put it, but when it was over he just that was an unpleasant experience..

"And I accept that going into the fight that I'm going to take damage, and I'm cool with it. Like, I'm okay with dying in there. You know? And that's not the way I should be going about life at this point. You know, I've kids if I was single I would still be like, yes, let's if I was single didn't have kids, you know? No, I am single sorry. If I didn't have kids I would be I was still going to be fighting. I think so how much did the kids play a factor in this. One sounds like a lot. Yeah. I mean, I've. They're going to be four and six in April getting up there. Yeah. So. You know, I plan on being like a great grandfather one day, and I wanna play with my grandkids. And and be alert and witty with everything. I've done my research on the sport. And you know, there's. You know, you bring it's a little banged up. You know, when you first got into it. What did you think? A what did you think your exit was going to be like and be what was your thoughts about when the exit would come like what were the circumstances under which you have thought like once you're full on it because I could make some money. But once you were like, okay. This is a career flew the next two years. What did you envision the exit to be I actually envisioned? My my. Exit kind of being like a lot of fighters. Great fighters, and it's a sad one where they become champion. They have got a big name. And it's kind of like Kay. You want seven hundred thousand dollars a fight even if you lose and you're like. All right. You know, what I mean versus like ending like I did with a win and stuff like that. You know? I think I think that's very big in the sport where guy should've hung it up a while ago. But it's like going to get another paycheck. You know, watch like Ladele and Ortiz and the simply I don't want to Smerch what they are two. They are pioneers and institutions, but at this stage, it's like what is what is keeping them around other than what must be a lucrative, payday, right? Yeah. I mean and their case like it's like they were fighting on a master's league, though, it wasn't like one of them was going against a young stunned. No, it didn't matter Ladoga. Really? He did you're right. So you were trying to avoid something like that in the early on. Yeah. Yeah. How bad are the injuries that you've had? I've fractured my tibula or fibula one of the two. My nose. I mean, deviated septum few stitches fractured my thumbs. I mean, nothing crazy. You know, I think I probably have a concussion and a few, you know, but it's all the training that goes into that fifteen minutes to fight, you know, just constantly getting contusions on my foot, and on my shins from sparring, you know, because the way we Spar Long Island. That's like, yeah. Like, we're gonna kill each other for fifteen minutes. We're going to really stimulate this fight. But we're gonna put on bigger stuff. That's all you know. So it's a double double edged sword because I'm going against the best guys on Long Island to try and get really really good look to become the best, you know. So sometimes you're not coming out of those spunk. Sessions the same way you went in, you know, sometimes you get a little banged up in those sessions and. Ego into fights damage and hurt the internet experts are going to hear this and say, well, why are you sparring like that then? It's kind of just get comfortable baby..

"Stance. Switching if you're ready to be in a position that's an important part of your offense. But if you're not it might get you in trouble, and you got a game plan or within the sky you saw over and over again you come into 'em. He's going to greet you with right hands. If you're clinched is going to be in a lot of right hand attacks. He likes that. Right. So you can go either side, by the way but start right kick to the body and the southpaw stance. He likes to go to the head. If it's part of the larger repertoire again taking advantage of Hernandez, his heart step you'd get too close to him or he Bleene down just making a knee counter possible. And he was telegraphing for taking these wide steps and that closing the distance and the right way, catching Hernandez on the exit. He would throw a punch maybe landed. Maybe it didn't. And it would just stand there. So only what set them on fire same Cy Clinton tax would just been over. And then flurry as Hernandez Lynn linearly retreated, which is part of Hernandez on the exit not really getting there. So if you're not exiting properly, and then you're retreating a straight line due to guy like he's going to say. You up. So when somebody tells you Donald Surani we won via head kick, bro. Do not sell. This man short do not sell one of the winningest if not the winningest fighter in UFC strikeforce pride WBZ history. Do not sell him short by saying he landed a head kick, bro. Because there are so much more to his game. There is so much more to his offense. There's so much more to what he's capable of doing that. Frankly, that's a bullshit answer. And I won't accept a dos. Aronie is a bit of a throwback. But in the best way possible throwback like vintage throwback like this thing. It's better like a fine wine. Everyone's trying new tricks. He stays with what works. I take my hat off in a perverse sense to Donald cowboy Surani that is the Monday morning analyst. All right. Let's bring him in. Our next guest, man. He's shocked me shocked me at media day when well after me actually, let me back up I talked to him today. And I thought well, this was a great interview. He was very very nice.

"We goes another one they are on the clinch face to face where do you think the attacks gonna come from say with me class the right side, boom now Seru this one gets blocked a little bit by Hernandez. But Sironi knows if I just stay on him and follow back straight. Look at this path, man. Look at this path. It's crazy. It's a straight back. Thrown his all over him man straight, and then hooks every time every time. This is a big problem. It's a lot of unnecessary damage. He did not need to take. All right. We're almost done. Throws a right hand here. Or do you think sororities offense is gonna come from? While look at that. Just throw the right hand can't do it because he has his left hand hanger up. You see that's preventing it a little bit. That's a nice adjustment from Hernandez. It's not enough. But it's definitely something. He's not a bad fighter. He's just young and inexperienced. He's going to be very good. This is just a bit of a wakeup call. Right. Surani throws that this is a nice elbow. Look at gear watch Hernandez a stepping in that direction, and he greets them with the excuse me the knee. That's really really nice, right? Does it again same side attacks in the clinch? You see so many people being like, okay, we throw combination has to be this side this side, then back to the side and the back to the side alternating can be good. Keep it the same side on occasion can be good. If they keep presenting those same vulnerabilities, which he does. And then again, right hand, right elbow, skews me. So look at this. What do you think he tries to throw an elbow? Once it got blocked. Right. So he goes, right, elbow, right? Niece. Me right, knee, right, elbow, all same side of tax. And he's trying to get away from him not quite a linear path, but pretty close here. They are again clinched up. This would absorb it like such head on the right side this time, right? You're looking here. Head on the right side. What's it gonna do? Let's see turns into him prevents the takedown has a frame here. Look at look at this wide open lane, man. What is what is blocking the face here of Hernandez nothing? So what's the road and gonna do crack? Right. It's the same. It's the same fight over and over and over and over again that tells you that there is a something he just doesn't know how to do. Right because John Jones gets hit with a few of these that shit goes away. Take it all away from you may with it gets it with a couple of these. I mean, not this version, but the the boxing version that just goes away after around three or four takes everything away from you. But at inex-. Appearance fighter who's trying to do things that he's not really in a position to be able to do just yet. Even though he might be massively talented as a wrestler of super aggressive and very powerful. He's got a lot of strengths. But there's just too much of a skill gap. And again same side on the clinched attack just over and over again Saronic can feel these Volna r- abilities, and he gets away again with the right hand. Do you guys? See all these patterns, they just keep emerging. I think we're almost done here. So here this is the very end of the fire close to it. Right. So we're Have with. you know, a quarter of the way through third of the way through the second round. So he goes to the body setting it up this is so nice, by the way. What side is this from? Oh, yeah. It's the right side. Now, he's hitting it because the guy standing in south boss, so it makes it more possible. But just sorta point that out. There's a nice shot. Backing out is circling rone's cutting off the cage a little bit nice jab. Right-hand follows him back straight goes back to the body all the same things we've been seeing before this one, by the way, this is part of the story to these ceremonies..

He had a big problem exiting the pocket and took a lot of unnecessary damage as as a consequence here, we are there clinched up remembered Sereni likes to look from the right side Sironi is here. Head to the left. Right. He's bought. Let's see what he does. Here is going to switch out boom cracks in with the right gets his head off the centerline and stays on that right hand side, by the way. Hernandez backs out and then just comes right into Greeson with the right pop some again with the left. So this is exactly what I'm talking about clinch attacks from the right side. Here's the second thing you see Hernandez breaks to clinch. Okay. Fine. Surani Greeson with a right hand on the half beat again, not on this one. But on the right there catches them here. And then the guy stays boop surrounding throws two more shots again same pattern over and over and over and over again, let's go the next one here they clinched up. Again, Sironi is going to get the nice frame on his Ilbo on the inside right here. Right. That can be devastating. If you get it. Right. They break away. He pushes he leans out. So only MRs what the right again, all the Clinton tax on the same side. He follows up with the punch and then as he exits he's still kind of backing out straight in a linear way and eats a head kick as a result. He never exits at an angle, he always exits. That's not true. He exited angled. Sometimes just not enough. All right now, we go to let's see what he does here. He south ball. You see him try to get the outside lead foot angle. Right. Goes to the body. I thought this body work was pretty nice actually he didn't follow it up with much needed it too far away. And it didn't change it up because he's taking these hard steps in these big jumps into space. But it's a punch, and then just kind of stays there. Look Surani knows if I just follow this guy with combinations. He'll be there. And he switches dances to get to get to that position over and over and over again, watch this. We'll see what this one is. Boom Greeson with the knee, which you see. And now watch him. I think he's gonna flurry here. Let's see how just coming forward. Blitzing him. Here's another one. Let's watch. So remember, what does he do is greeting with knees all attacks in that right hand side greeting him with a right hand catching on the happy. Let's see how he greets or they clinch. This is commonly how it goes watch. It gets out of the way. Those jabs time highly unusual for Sironi, but look Hernandez just brakes and stays there. So Sarojini just takes advantage of it and blitzes and back. Look at this line that he's in. Backing up and he turns a little bit here. But that's one the cross best when the straight. Yes. We'll yeah. To cross it's his right hand. Yes. Yeah. So the cross and then his left hook. Boom filing circles at an angle here, the are clinched, again, we'll see what happens again, what are you looking at right hand side, if you are going to fight Donald Sironi, you have to understand an overwhelming amount of his offense is gonna come from that right side at distance in close kicking range. You have to know that he doesn't do a lot of offense on the other side. You got to be prepared. So cracks him with an elbow here. And let's see he just stays there a little bit. He gets out of the way that which was nice by Hernandez. But we're just knows if I keep following this guy. Here's your straight. Then you're hook. He'll catch. You'll catch him every time so Rony does it over Amazon like a broken record because it is a broken record over and over and over and over again. Here..

"He had basically as soon as her sorority it I would say roughly halfway through the first round. It was a rap for him. Not only was Hernandez. These two are related. Hernandez will take a hard step and then kind of angle, and then sit there and Surani be like you're still in front of me pop pop and he hit him the same way every time. Although sometimes in different size, namely, straight and hooks or a hook and a straight got him over and over and over and over with them, look at Frankie, Edgar Josie Aldo might be kryptonite for Frankie Edgar, but for most people, Frankie Edgar is there kryptonite why? Because he does a lot of moving and a lot of fakes and a lot of feints sets up behind the jab hits across and he's gone dominant. Crews says the same thing he's bopping and doing this. And he'll hit you with a dart. And then he's gone. He's at an angle and exiting the pocket. So that when you go back to throw they're not there anymore. Hernandez did not and so Donald Surani caught him over and over and over and over and over with it that was really it was just he was just observing what he guy was they say jujitsu, they say it all the time take what the guy gives you. He's giving you the fact that he's not exiting properly any set them on fire with it three same side Clinton tax. I mentioned this before you'll see what the right hand what he was doing was. So we're would align his head on the side. He want to throw. Which is typically the right side. So that would prevent him from getting hit. He would have an overhaul on this one or some kind of bicep controller and control. If you different things he would do they would separate and then he would get his head to position where needed to be. And he would crack him every time or with a right hand from there. But it's the same side that keeps getting hit over and over and over again, again, if he's giving you an open target if you can win the clinch Hernandez was doing a good type of firing knees in the clinch, but he was getting controlled from the chest up in terms of strategy and that physically controlled, but he was being controlled by. He would just contorts him or push them a certain way Hernandez. I don't know. It didn't seem to me it occurred to him to challenge it strategically. So now he's sitting in this position. And now, they would sort of jockey? And you would see would see you would see Sarojini swim inside for a collar tied two of them, depending or bicep depending what he needed to do get his head to the side where he couldn't be hit push out and then hit from the right side over and over and over and over again last flurry as Hernandez linearly. Retreats? Why is this important? So number one, he's not exiting. So you could crack with a good one shot, maybe a two-shot sometimes he wouldn't exit and then would backup in a straight line. And you could hear Joe schilling. The whole time Shasta Joe schilling who is super underrated as a cornerman super underrated. As a guy who can help other strikers and Emma may be their best. I very much believe that you can hear him saying fire fire going after him. So you'd see Sironi just blitzed the guy because he was unprepared to circle in the directions that would get him out or sometimes he would exit, but he would exit in an obvious way and Surani would greet him to exit to the left left took right straight and catch him every single time. These things happened over and over and over again when I was watching fights I was making notes about what was happening, and then adding time stamps, and I just kept adding it to every single thing that they did. Because it wasn't highly varied offense the same things. Kept appearing. Crazy. All right. Let's go shall we? Let's get the first one. This will be I think taking advantage of Hernandez. You know, what fuck this pin? Not that. Great. Apple your pen is overrated. All right. So here we are. I'm gonna show you things in the order kinda listed here..

"It's really good that the combative arts are now. Much more open with each other. There's still some walls there where everything's kind of segmented. But relative to how it was when you were wrestling in the army, it's so much better. Now terms of finding people in having access to the technical experts in verse combative arts of bringing them altogether. Yeah. You gotta have an open mind. That's one of the biggest things I think of being a coach, especially from a traditional combat sport. As we have a lot of us have closed minds in always say that the literal illiterate of the twenty first century aren't people that cannot read as people that can't learn unlearn and relearn is in MMA. You have to lose you have done. Learn the rest of moves that are going to get you choked choked out you have to unlearn the boxing. That's not that's gonna get you knocked out of the ju jitsu that's gonna get you knocked out. It's gotta be catered to anime. So a lot of people don't consider consider his that karate are are karate coach mantle to be like a secret weapon 'cause nobody's training. Really like that. In a person. That's a really enjoys. Karate for 'em may making sure he's studies. How's it going to work in MMA? And that's what that's what he does. So even you know, even Henry just before he fought on Saturday last person who called was Patricia pit bull because he really respects him. And he Patricio gave him told him. You're gonna knock out have confidence in your hands. Go to the body. You're gonna hurt him early hurt him early and soon as TJ switch stances and he hit him to the body. Then he hit him to the head. You know, it was thirty seconds. But you Henry Henry was coming for the kill early. He looks powerful. He looked fast. What do you make of the criticism of the stoppage? I'll tell you candidly up on my cards on the table. I didn't think it was a great stoppage. But I think it's I think it's probably okay. No, I, you know. Obviously anything could have went a little bit longer. But I think the result might have been the same would have been the same. Probably just more damage on them. And Henry was Henry was hurting him. He hit him with the kick. The head kick hit him with the left. Kgo eight one behind the ear. You gotta right straight right over the ear. And there's a YouTube video that's called what really happened with the T J dillashaw versus Henry pseudo. And they break it down perfectly. How how many shots he took? And and how he wasn't maybe defending himself intelligently? His were the wrong hand was up. Henry was over here. But he was looking over here. So now, he explains it perfectly. And I'd rather have that's probably the best video for us to watch. 'cause he breaks it down blow by blow. Do you want? This remiss to happen at one thirty five as a coach. You know, I get the economics of it. I don't know how much I love the idea. Yeah. You know, it's kind of like working against the save in the flyweight division. You know? But it's not that Harry doesn't want to say the flyweight division. It's more for that one match. I'm not so sure how much Henry likes to conquer. He's a conqueror. You know? He conquered the Olympics retired and next day. He conquered the flyway division and yesterday again, and you know, challenges for the the next title. But that doesn't mean he wouldn't go back. I think go out there BT j just to get that bell. And the able to say, you're the double champ champ. Which would put you in one of one meaning Olympic gold flyway gold bantamweight gold in I think that's kind of. That's what he wants for his legacy. He it's not more about that accessory belt..

"I always tell this story is that if kinda started with wrestling, so I brought Patrice finally got a true soon in Henry together after years of training both of them separately. I got together brought Patrice it to the Olympic training center. So in in Colorado Springs, shadow to the Olympic training center. USA rustling, we we all came in train there and threw them to the wolves early Patricia. So he's he's going against Olympia and stuff in the room. So after about a couple of weeks of that is shoulders were shot. So he said, Eric, I my shoulders are shot. I can't keep up my said. Well, what do you want to do? Well, let's try kicking. May I can kick if my shoulder shot list dry kicking. So I said, okay. Let me give one of these Olympic taekwondo coaches to help you. And then it started like that. And then for Melinda. Olympic taekwondo when he went back to Brazil it evolved into he had a karate kid on his team. Who said, hey, let me introduce you to my coach from he's the number one. He's the head for the believe for Brazil for the karate team team Brazil's karate team his name is Mandelson mono Santana. So then he started training Patrice you. Then when Patrice you'll be Benson Henderson. That's when Henry paid attention because he was like man, Eric you shouldn't let Benson. Genesis too big for Patricio. And then he paid attention and watch this fight as like, wow. That style. I liked that style. I like his attitude. How is I like the wide stances arm? And then as they get I called him up us. You gotta come down here. Now. Now, you gotta come. I got I want you to train this style, and he came down, and he started training with Patrizia between all those guys. And that was where he made that change for Wilson. Hey, so it's cut a funny. How I tell the story that was wrestling that broke karate to Patricia around the way all the way back to Henry..

"Mike Easton was a team leader of in guy. This was long before you said it was like two thousand seven or eight something like that longtime ago, and we were both onset together. And this was back in the day when you could do vis, you know, and he had done it. He had weighed in he done IV's. We went from the way to the TV station, and he had done something to plug the IV. But it was blood was still leaking. So he had a towel over his hand the whole time and someone was asking him what's up with the towel? He's like decoration, but they have to keep the towel on from the thing from leaking. So people do all kinds of crazy things to trick opposition it happens. All Mike eastern. Actually that was one of the last fights. We watched was Mike Easton, Jay. Yeah. We lost that fight like last week last fights man, you guys have to be on cloud. Nine that go about as well as could possibly could have almost too fast. Yes. The. It's actually read it was so fast that people are like all well, we didn't what what can we really say about Henry, you know, what I mean? There are some of the haters are out. Yeah. We'll we'll we'll I can say is that when I was saying all week long that he was ten times better than what he wasn't his last fight. And I still evolving. That's something to see when you're in training camp from one week to the next. I was like, wow, he's getting better. And better that first week. Along was the. It was about it was supposed to be eight weeks in the cut that week off. So so it was seven out Sitate a truth. I kind of liked it almost sixty seven weeks because usually around and that eight weeks around that sixth week is when a lot of my fighters start getting injured. So the fact that it was we were already on our way here under an at the end of the six week. We're coming for a fight week. I was like, wow. This seems almost better seemed like perfect Tommy all the stars aligned. And from the first week. I remember sparring. He only sparse seventeen minutes and. We are a little worrying like wow, seventeen minutes were violent twenty five minute match. Obviously at six weeks is that we were worried, but we had to stop it. Okay. He's new use. Going pass these seven minutes. He's mounted these guys are beaten up on them. We were switching guys in. So we just stopped it. And the next week was twenty minutes. The next week was twenty five minutes the next week. He was wrong through six seven guys. You know, non stop, you know, round after round just smashing everybody. And I was like, wow, I can really to witness. It was a was a treat. Go see on the tape with the pseudo with dillashaw, not the fight itself. But ahead of time. He was saying he could pick up all of his different. You know, Christina has a lot of leans forward. Does this shoots the left or any different kind of what we what were you seeing on tape that you knew Henry would would be a bad match of form. Mow his wrestling. I think.

"And I've got a great Monday morning analyst plan for you dunks as well. All right. So I believe Eric is here we put that away. I believe Eric is here, and we're going to move him in Ceuta here. Just momentarily think there, Mike and them up. How about that? You have seen on ESPN events. Right. Pretty good. I think I would say all in all it was a little nerve wracking when they had to kill time at the end of the Duke. UVA game. Good thing. It didn't go to overtime. There wasn't a lot of other channel options for them to push that broadcast. But it was a great lead in. Although if you've not seen Zion Williamson, I don't know what you're doing. But I think generally the ESPN embrace was I'd give it like. B plus a minus. I mean, I'm sure the folks they're one a higher grade. And again, I'm pretty satisfied with the numbers apparently, adding nearly six hundred thousand subscribers for ESPN plus over the weekend, some people having some ESPN plus issues, which we'll talk about a little later in the sound off or maybe with some of your tweets, but. But mine was flawless the event went off. Really, well, it felt bigger than it. Ordinarily would have been like it would have been a big event. No matter what. But the ESPN handshake. So to speak made it feel a little bit bigger. The crowd in Brooklyn was pretty good. So all in all a great start to the ESPN era and a half to say Henry pseudo the crown jewel of the whole experience to be quite honest with you. I wasn't sure how that fight was going to go. I guess I was leaning a little bit dillashaw. But man, Henry pseudo is not to be trifled with them here to talk about him. Now is his guest my favorite person in the world. That's strong statement. But he's pretty close. He is as coach his mentor is friend. It's Eric about a scene. Thanks for having me, my friend. The trademark white glasses. The story behind those actually was the story. Actually, the glasses started in Brazil on the ultimate fighter. Brazil first week one of the fighters got cut, and I didn't want the you know, you live in your house with your opponent. So I didn't want them to see where he was cut, and it was close to Halloween, and I say, you know, what I got a pair of glasses with with a SCO on it. I go I bet that would distract your opponent from looking at the cut on the side of your eye. So he wore the glasses all week ended up fighting in. We avoided them seeing where the cut was then the next week. I had left the glasses inside the the workout room the practice before the next team came in which was at the time Verdun team. And then they took the glasses, and they did like a voodoo thing against with my glasses. I had a bad Dan ended time, and they did candles around. All the other fighters pitchers, those it was kind of like for reality. And then. The glasses became a thing. Like when they took my glasses. We went lost four straight, and I got him back, and then we won four straight. And then we won the shows then. I'm blind without ochre. All right. Did you wrestle with context? No, no. No. I didn't. How'd you Russell? I'm joking. They're not. Okay. So they're just for sugared. They just were the there my business card fair enough. They pop I one time did an interview at a local news station when Mike eastern on remember him..
