I thought he did. Great is is is leaping jab to his head kick was just so beautiful some techniques technique techniques he was thrown just so sharp and to do it against a guy like kelvin. Gas is is defense with his footwork. is is is management of spacing Is his covering what the left hand's from gas gasoline was really it was he was on Even with his takedown way at the double unders right by a nice steak down he He blew me away. I thought he did excellent. And i think he can be is on it. Perhaps down the line we shall see you versus either israel sonya. I love i love. I love guy. I really don't wanna fight him But we did a podcast together. Once this guy's just the man. I i can't imagine really.

Basically the you know. I just need to get a fight in. I was going to have to change careers. So took the fight with him. And i knew that possibly take me a ufc.

Now what kind of struggles struggle with is it like. Is it recent stuff in the past once once you're aware of it and you're you're dawson when my thoughts like leaves the room and my spring back. That's the skill set. That i took from the ball like i'm practicing. We do doing the same thing you've been doing a million times and my mind is like wanders out that room. I'm actually getting that. Skill sets like ability to recognize it. I i don't like obviously not judging myself on it like all right. Whatever you were thinking about the thought the seventy thousand dollars a day. We can't control this thing that we bring him back in the focus. I get unlike the amount of skill my my skill sets are jumping up again. Like boom getting better again. I'm getting a game. Because i'm actually president in a training session in my mind satellite want. Somebody gets repetitive. I mean how many times can you do a jab across foot high gig as of current will jump spin jigs trying to break that though that flow and then i realized i'm like men those little details like my watch interesting wine. I had such hung vetoes. That was out on it. You know like the showtime cap end fifth round. But he was like after these nice little basic happened in like a lost touch of that. I'm trying to force these are moos didn't happen also. My mind's gone boom twenty. Five minutes goes by from tina's by. I was a decision you mentioned. People reached out to mike to you after that after you talked about that. I'm wondering if you don't have to tell me. But like i wonder if a lot of fighters are like. Hey what's it like at the pierre fell know. How did they treat your feel like just on your social media. It looks great. And i bet there are some guys who are asking for your insight right now not yet for. I think that why. I'm surprised. I think a i don't fight weeks instead. Finally get some. I don't go into the messages like any one. Messages can literally take your thoughts and maybe they are check. My inbox africa's but I think hopefully hopefully. I'm showing everybody at this. There is options and we'll get better asher is made on these paydays of his life obviously eating at the resolve them on it. But he's able to take care of his family in a different way than he was before fight. So that's a perfect segue. I'd be remiss if i don't ask you about been longtime yours. What what were your thoughts. After watching that on saturday it took forever so actually fell asleep on the east coast so it was like ali and you didn't like the musical acts you felt like we always said weight training. I wake up in the morning. Set my phone. Damn man just couldn't believe it. Like i've spent decades ben in the head and didn't get knocked out his walk right through. It took me down like tell if he wasn't so i was like banking on him a golden and he did put. I mean boxing's. Boxing is lashing boxing weight. Jake paul had structure and ben was like clinging his feet together. You see the technical arrieta. He's got caught on south. Obviously a teammate. I'm glad he's ok if anybody can handle it. Then guys just like top scan. He knows who he is like when when he knows who he is great team around on his family's or studies when you're leaving the ufc. Were there any talks of you. Fighting jake paul de la hoya. Paul signed so same abrahams. Bring my daughter miami. We we started getting phone calls from everybody else somebody that was only with. Ufc reached out like a Signing thing let's talk about an option that might be on the table on what like Down no one's. I had nothing apple. Watch the w i'm so. We were trying to negotiate. April flat. So i could still have the seasons Twenty third so late april six Of april work out But kind of negotiation stop wanted to push back in like after seen the of This week man. He's gone through battle so we of lean that right so he wants to fight july third still despite what happened this weekend. Is that still a possibility for you or now that you can have now been that season out like my pfizer april june august that championship then once once the championships done hassle some free time to go out and that was another reason to like i. I have the options. Don't doing other things. How do you feel about this whole jake paul phenomenon. I'm ethnicially. i was like florida basketball player. He's like an he. He's got lucky Basketball player nine. He fights that aspirin a he makes them look like that and it just opens another lineup will use their. I hate to disrespect that. He's giving tie. I thought they're they're trying to like a a game on a little bit because i know jay too but i'm like man like we got down and kind of felt like boxing blue. Would you like to see. Turn for jake tie either jalen of because i was i was talking about and i think j. j. from base team tried before he's dre boxer. I mean that's cool. Willy has really does have an option like he put his name in at that drawing. Maybe it's jake making. It's one of his teammates. But there's another option for fighter our last thing before i let you go. You told me about like the management team that you were starting. How is that going. You know we spoke like four months ago. Had you feel like that's progressing. It's progressive man. I mean it's definitely like it's nothing that's going to happen overnight.

"Whole season already. So i find. I find that i find the starter. You're come back and fight seven weeks and then after that one fight in eight weeks and then we have season. Finale earned that one quest for fights. And then with the way i could deal. That's why financially myself in a great spot that's awesome Now one interesting thing about this scenario is your in atlantic city. That's where the the first few weeks are going to be in one thing that raised some eyebrows. The you're fighting apple twenty third. I do believe you had to arrive. Seven days in advance of when you're fight as you're literally in this like you know. Ufc two five days out a week. How or seventeen days. So you're in the midst of that now. you're almost at the end. What has been like. Initially the first two days was like i was like manage and delays like we had be in quarantine our room and so we can like get tested positive or negative. We get out to the bubble on the first few days. It was a little rough. Because i'm quite wait. I'm jumping in rome. Mitigating abuse using. I'm definitely taken care of. And then once we got out of the bubble man until you. I actually enjoyed it and it's been a while since i had this much time to like work through my thoughts and more obvious securities in positive things i have before fights goes before fights quick rush for five days. You got mad media you gotta steal train. He's doing away the boom on fight night here man i got. I got to like to work through all the thoughts and through all like assembly that that comes along or fight the so it actually feels good to like in the evening to me talking about to be like having nothing to do but train focused on the mission like this louis. Nothing to do here by train and washington dome and just hang out with duke again so it just reminds me of all days again. Does he like did he have to be there. Seventeen days out at all while so. That's a real team. You have to be here. Dukes never midst to flight. Except for the flight that fought on together in milwaukee. That was only time. He's n- he's never been in my corner like he was fighting the main event combing the event so i mean rider bellies early days early days before duke with fighting so to. Wow that's when was born. That's not got slammed on my shoulder. I separated my shoulder and a high kick knockout. The guy duke was event. He didn't see the light till afterwards. He's like your every time you out the show or call showtime as for showtime was born. I i didn't know that were you even like was he even training at the time or he was okay. He was so we was the komai event in milwaukee the main event so he was like his last retirement. Fight passing the torch kind wa. That is an as he bit. He's been there the whole time. What about your other cornermen. Have they also been all the time. So i had will usually searches mark formats. But he's fighting two weeks titles leave him for seventeen days honestly surprised said. It came now that i've experienced it. He would have been in. Amazing spot but christian rodriguez a screening of mine. Have miami tristesse performance out your stuff and are you allowed to like walk on the boardwalk and all that or is it really electric. Wow so they're really keeping this bubble legit. They spent a lot of money on his side. On cedar lake outta here. Like i mean there's all the cards are ears so my car. Teeter the next by car than ambulante classes all hotel rooms all the corners would fall us. They have a main room. That's like train room so we have like probably a train rooms. You'll have personal song. I mean they did a great job making sure we have everything we need to do. This professionally does it kind. I i've seen like the promo clips. And i see what they're doing. Does it feel a little bit like a few years ago for you where it feels like you are the new face up. Efl like they are really getting behind you. Are you feeling that love as well in kind of like the wc afc championship days. Definitely man like. I feel i feel all that love. And even the fighters having like crossing paths with the fires the nuance pigs as though man like i've earned that i i disagree of the work i put in in one hundred and forty five pounds one hundred fifty pounds one hundred and seventy pounds. Not like i earned that right And i still keep it like no matter. What should give him the past Form and. That's where i'm at right now. Mike i gotta go make sure this promotion my back. I'm gonna take promotion take everywhere. Do you feel so. We talked about like the pressure going into the last fight. Which was you know going out on a high note. Is there a new pressure now to make them realize that you are worth the investment. Like you know it's like starting a new job right like you wanna prove to the people that hey i was worth it you feel that. Does that something you think about now. Stop thinking about people's perception of me. That's kind of help me out a lot. I used to go out there like when the cameras are on looking to see the cameras are watching me or like race that focus. So i think i'm i'm emerged. Mature enough mark understand like if i focus on that now forms is in the suffered. Because i'm not always on what matters okay Last time we spoke as well you talked about working with someone to build up that mindset and and evolve as a human being as a fighter. Are you still doing that. Is this still a part of your maturation hundred percent In their night. I still have a drink. Alcohol since actually had some wine actually can show log all And also mindset coached. You were summarizing. The us's wells on the part of that part of their package to be with former to and the biggest thing that he was proud of is like he's after my interview he had like eighty fighters come in explode. Yes i'm like man. If i could do that because men everybody needs. Everybody needs family. Needs to know like it's like crazy how. How often how good it feels. Good to talk about this. So are you still working with that guy. yeah sangatte. what's his name again. Mike mica that's right and Did you feel like that. Performance was a byproduct of your of your work with him million percent of that first round. I've been before. I hit the snow. The blood right on my oil. Some of these old thoughts came up different fights different positions. I go i. can't you stuck on my back. Then it i watch the i regathered myself restructured myself. I looked again at the second round. Came out of my job. Let's keep presently what i gotta do to win this. Not all these other fights not his old battles fighting or stuff. That's going on now.

"All right. let's say hello now to the former w. e. c. lightweight champion the former. Ufc lightweight champion. The former ufc fighter. Who's making his debut. His highly anticipated debut. This friday april twenty. Third against cassius. Clay collared the first event of pflp new season. Which kicks off this friday on. Espn plus espn two. He's the one and only anthony showtime pettus who's in atlantic city. Lots of talk to her about. Anthony thank you so much for the time or it's great to talk to you as always so. I actually want to start almost in chronological order. Because the last time i spoke to you was right before your fight on december nineteenth which ended up being your last. Ufc fight when you walked out of the cage. That nine las vegas after the. W did you know in your heart that that was your last fight. Honestly all the emotions after now that. That's what one i bank on yourself. Pleasure contract out you know and There was a lot of pressure on that. I was kind of disappointed. Fans 'cause this is a grew up onto these lights I started my career off in the wbz deion ufc. One of the things that. I didn't know honestly like tony delay. You did know that it was the last on your deal right success. Was it hard to kind of blocked that out as Great performance but you know last five potential end of a chapter potential end of an era. Did you feel like there was a little more pressure on you to go out on. A high note was definitely. Yeah i mean you gotta feel that way. I mean i think that's what drew me like the site and again it was like it felt with a new feeling damn like this a long time where everything was writing on one site like since the title run you know it was like trying to get back china bounce back trying to find a way back into that one right there. Obviously my little bro. I'm like helping to find last krona decide after i'm only thirty. Four years old man and i still love china. I still love being part of the at all the the fighting by whether it's training teaching coaching on so merhamet. Now were you happy with your performance at night. The biggest thing i was happy about was My ability to bounce back the first round jump three jump round gauge. I slipped then he called me well like the only road punchy with was like right on the ground right there on so i had a face mask versity Regather myself and that's the skills that i've been working on so until going to use that muslim flex that muscle myself that that does work. So what's interesting is that fight happens. On december nineteenth and like about a week later european fighter. So things happened really quickly here. Why did they happen so quickly. Like did the. Ufc say you go because usually there's like a negotiation period. There's a whole process. This happened the blink of an eye..

"It was supported. robbie all chill to be honest chow. His back him not for the same mazda and did i want to support him. I wanna i wanna wish well. I think he had a great chance to win. This fight Striking the boxing ability to stop the take down. Always been there. But you gotta give respecting. Gotta give his props. You know you could say what you want. But he's abided amid suggestions on a flight he does make the adjustments. He'll make you. He's wrestling to heal cummock strike in all white strike me. Dale wrestling diogo signal. Another acre do if five five around he may not rush super. You may not mean had the most blistering speed and the christmas technique but is very very effective. He's effective win. He's very good at will so You know modernizers to be be able to switch switch gears tommaso switch gears. He years against until till knocking down. He smart came up switched years. It's been other times of mazar. I didn't switch gears dame. Your maya kept goal for the san mateo. He can find a solution. They'd get a monitor and he basically got crushed against octa enough to lose and other fights where he didn't switch to gear But disappointed in my his best run. This is best friend. He's been in his biggest bag away from Ds fi to know on. Sorority fights darren till by. I'm not being fight. No that's their beef. That was very quick moment. We didn't see much media guy either. Die sorry So those today you gotta give props behead head you got hands and you got. He got crushed. Everything kicks hands. Body shots for words can take a pie which he can stop shots. You know zindi guard disrespecting. He was no terrified summation. So i think you've put it together is going to be. Who can make the adjustments. If he can make the just in their if switch stances or sorry coming for shots or body locks dead or strikes. A mistake if you can do that. Yeah he the last thing Obviously didn't go your way against liu k. And if you are heading into a new chapter of your life and career do at least you know the big story going into that as we discussed whereas the old tired kennedy go into that extra gear be aggressive you are aggressive and maybe an as you said like maybe was to a fall like maybe we're just a smidge too aggressive regretted. Nah i think i was right there. I saw a sign everything. I saw the shots. And can you say. Can you leave in peace. Will you leaving piece or do you do leave like marijuana. That's my assessment story. I still think i'm hall of fame. Have some one hundred. And i think that i can walk away with my head up and i i would rather have took an a lesson giving them all in a pride three feis where we watch me. Stand up there and we knew that wasn't me.

There was a tough match-up. I found a way to get around his hand.

He weighed for this fight. And i know who is so concerned. Snow concerns about the size. Can you at least say an. Maybe not but i i'd like to know are you at all fundamentally for a guy who three now regardless of opponent regardless of who is five. Does he have some skills like are you at all impressed. With the way he has come pills. Yeah i mean you can go to any title. Boxing or cardio kickboxing ninety minute session as you can look at skills there. We have skilled. Yeah he got skills but em off in a hurry just think he put a butterfly my stomach. Now i've been training walker boxes since two thousand and eight eric brown.

Head i had the time in the freedom in the money out of lived in la trade knuckle boxer hundred percent so i kept it behind closed doors because my pundits adversaries oppositions they had the times they may have the freedom. They made the funds to and train boxing. One hundred percents. I'm using my own little. I got almost enjoys saint-pierre. I watched a heated and were contract did for the fall. Cashback and i was trying to fight esp. But i took their formula. I'm own. I did this two thousand and six and that's how i won those titles and that's how willing to run trade eight. Look you can go back. Look cautious interviews aka said. I do eighty percents striking. I wanna take everybody now. I'm used are wrestling for conditioning. If i can't strike strike on and take him out. If i came most likely i'll be able to strike to grappler. He will be able to take me down. So i'm broken shoulder filo done so i did that now.

"Enjoy all right. Let's say hello now to the one and only tired woodley who has definitely been in the news as of late a lot to get to with tyron. Woodley appreciate his time as always first often. Thank you for the time to talk to you again. Slow okay. Wow so we could start in a million different directions here but of course we just saw you front and center this past weekend in atlanta the the ben aspirin jake paul fight which unfortunately for you and the team didn't go your way before we get into your involvement in it all and and how this has become somewhat personal for you could ask. What did you think of the way. The fight played out. I mean it doesn't matter. No somebody that works at the post office or heavyweight champion of the world somebody punched in the face really hard new ice bollard hours love. Go down madam stunning. So you know. He was pricing bensinger body. Actually what he was doing kind of the game play. We wanted for banned. Russia usa reaching out when he loved just punching. Or just you know fainting so lose thinking about having a partial body pressure body and then working his way maybe clinton dirty boxing with sean a gas tank working body a little bit and not letting them outside now leading dietrich. He got out to a story so detained the peso like i said anybody harsh heart and hit somebody that could put him out so It doesn't mean he's now sudden the he knockout been is not quite known for his hands. Now he some no legendary fighters jumps all the all the ropes of years years of china's there. Okay and so. I'm just wondering i mean i love the relationship that you have with ben and i love how tight you guys have been for so many dating back to missouri days friday saturday. Did you think in your heart of hearts. He was gonna win. Because i mean. Most people were not predicting him to win. I know relax area. He relaxed all the time. He never like i do would. I'm good. I'm just restaurants but i would never see anything different alexi. We're doing this college. I've never really seen it gets hired in the competition. And he's always done it. So i know is. Training partner in college has as coaching college and party in the may. That's him so i would. I got loved different and identify. You know he had a chance to be allow autozone later i was always gonna be around four and eight in the mean at swinging. Somebody bis Hit dirty box and pushed into stunned. And they all over you and being unorthodox. I thought that would help them out a bit but you know. The cars filled the way that they did unfortunately just put a whole community. We had more time for another time. Like milwaukee around in the cloud is just so disgusting. What society due for cloud so many people that are in may guys on his for cloud is other entertainment other rappers of the celebrities. Celebrating his nike is a show. I get it but like five. Meet it if you really wanna fight somebody you to say you beat somebody find a world champion nash over knock him off for out fights on mighty it. Actually you know will get in your face and make real heritage for you and then if you beat me you can really say your fighter but the second being done in the fight. He got on a conference call. I wanna see tire fight jay. Now's brain light now. Was all that talk. You're talking now. Everybody that he's talking about is opposite. Image dose import geoghegan gonna rigorous innate years. Not fight me. i'm your same way. I mean you had a lot to send a lot world less fight and that's a creek is because some people are really built for this and so people act it's not even intimate firefighting youtuber is a man fighter. Man you wanna touch that. Handle it okay. So that was literally my next question. Because i saw his tweet tha dc of all people saying like off my boy will see to dc stays out of most the just like don't disrespect. Somebody like especially like i can be rock and do all the paint from that background. I don't get it twisted. Ua senior desert espn. You're talking. You may all split. But i used to. People are living. That's what i did. I got my name for gang. Fighting i was fighting before it was. I was verified in the street before i got verifiable instrument. J. you'd have to steam. You wanna go around and a fight you wanna say. You beat greats. His dogs had was his dog. Says a fight. Let's go after doot boxing. Mma or bolt trolleys year of wrestling box or whatever you want to dumb wrestling chess checkers and get it all do it. I don't think he wants to do it. They offered me. They offer me to fight him in november. Obviously i couldn't do it because i'm your unconscious with usc but for this on at the holiday dana somebody guys on those on works out but Let me beat this dude. So dana was asked about your future. The press conference in it seemed like he was leaning towards. You know maybe party ways so you don't know where you stand right now with. Ufc you know. I just. I'm just gray. Area will be ruled. She's like like. I said in the past that the press conference is sometimes i felt like i was right of looking back i could have been like always and looking and waiting just because i don't trust a lot of people is. This is where. I felt like these could have been done differently. So i'm always as the businessman. Just somebody that. I grew up with his lifestyle. You gotta look over your shoulder. You gotta watch. I'll see you whitney in a bar paid the whole scene. I'll tell you what edges are. I'll tell you who the suspect. Who would i'm that guy. I'll do that every time. So i take that into business. Take that into every arena man. That's protecting me over a lot of stuff a lot of times so she could happen to cut. We kept me a lot of getting say so. I felt like that went into a lot of has actually the lot of miscommunication and then you have several different people. Speaking on your behalf and didn't is the internet. Dennis the media. This wasn't a lot of direct contact so for some of those things. I felt like it was on me some of the things. I don't feel like it was on me. And i don't regret As a man. Like i was doing what i was doing right but i do look back. I did for the to the point where it was so far it was so much of me going heads up that it became almost irreparable me. I know you said you don't necessarily have regrets. But that was. I don't know if i've ever heard you say that about your time in the ufc that may be. You could have done things a little differently and of course what happened happened. The past is the past. But i'm wondering. Because i used to hear rashad evans talk about you and say like man. Maybe if you meet them halfway it'll be better for you in the end and whatnot. Would that be advice that you'd give to a young kid at twenty four year old coming into the sea like hey. Maybe don't do this the way i did it. I you know. I give a lot of people device like this. I'll tell though you know a lot of people that in a ucs related to me. Like i got a first cousin Obse really i got trained. We'll meet as a fighting the fighting. So what i do. Is i say you know right now. My relationship with little shaky so anything you need from me. I got you want to train a guy shoot but your affiliation when we don't make it too tight because i want to get into the youtube association. I want your journey neuropathy. You'll see to be yours your own and you know they just outta love respect dan. This is not going to hurt me or help me be affiliated but it could if i get into a standoff for so she would know the brass and you so tightly tight with me. I don't know if that's affects you. Would it be fair to say that. What i love that. You're gonna take some time off and go train and just have fun but of mind the thing that interests you the most and is like burning inside of you. Is this jake paul flight. This is what you want he. I mean 'cause 'cause it's like it's like Ti will disarm always loom in news..

"The mind controls the body controlling the flow. If you can get enough flow and you can get all that other. That's where i get to thinking about and that's show tonkin was born in. I was in this flow state. Nothing else mattered. But that moment right there and recently. I've lost that ability and i'm kind of getting back to that and it's crazy i didn't even know it before but now i can actually see it now losing track. I'm losing my ability to be in this conversation. Her or in this training session or whatever it is. He doing my daughter. I see it like you drift. And you're like all right. Let me pull myself back. When did i drift in Focused back on this one right now. So it's interesting to hear you say this because i'll be honest with you. I mean you look at your record at your resume. Regardless of wins or losses you have literally fight everyone who never turned it down. You've never turned down an opportunity. You've never said no. And you look at that roster. It's just unbelievable. The guys who fought and then when this fight came about. I mean you can make a case that out. Moreno is the least known guys since the. Wc days right. i mean it's just been a murderer's row and initially. I was like wow you went from surani burner. I know that might sound like a a knock on. I'm not trying. Knocking is just no. I mean he's not a household name like forget and all these guys and so when you got that offer what did you think. Did you need to get up for him or because of the you didn't need it was like it's a blessing you know what i'm saying like i i'm i'm blessed to be part of this car. I'm blessed to be part of the And guys like that need fights like this to get known. That's how i got down. You know how to take the big fights. I had two big names and everybody knew she's killers like there's no there's no easy pfizer's now like all depends on what Fighters show up that night. You know like he could be on his a game in. No you get a cold night before the fight. And that's that's the story. They wrote Five fifteen minutes so every fight is dangerous on. But i think where i'm at right now looking to jump back to that title my living right back in that top ten top fifteen where ryan even looking at that no more. It's just progressing in one side field. Like i got that everything clicking on the right the right single cylinders. That's when i go back to my timer it takes fights like this Kabwe three weeks notice we got in there. I had a great time in that fight. And i was only working with mica probably like two or three months before that marcia from yet made by may two three months before that flight so i had a little bit tools. I was using it more my personal life for china up my personal life and fix our with my family. My mom my daughter my fiance my brothers and then Now switching gears towards my career in bro. It's crazy now like the drills. He's doing a little small things. That like you think are irrelevant to fighting man. You relate back to that when times get tough and you're in your sparring sessions and you're like damn i can't out getting tagged up the ability to bring yourself back in light all right. Let me get back to my game plan. My my my skill set. It changes everything you don't you don't lose a whole practice Because of a shitty of one should he thought no you practice and you get better at any better at recognizing that thought it all the other. It's kinda deep up. I mean yeah no i love it once i once once on these fighters understand it there minutes so so so freeing as a fighter again if you want the entire conversation with anthony pettis and of everyone that you heard from today go to the espn emma youtube channel. They're all they're unedited for your enjoyment. Obviously appreciate you listening on the pot as well. We've got another big weekend of mma coming up. There's one championship on december. Eighteenth their cfc on the eighteenth as well cast w with their final show of the year and of course the final ufc fight card of the year. And what a card. It is as of right. This second. Fourteen fights on this car. There were fifteen but we lost one. We'll see what it ends up with. Action kicks off at four. Pm eastern on espn plus seven pm. Eastern just listen to this main card wonderboy thompson against jeff. Very important fight fighter. One seventy both guys haven't fought this year. Both guys obviously players at seventy neil undefeated in the ufc josie aldo against marlin vera. I think bound gonna fight for a bantamweight title before it's all said and done. That's a huge vital. One thirty five michelle against chaos williams too terrifying guys cast has had a great year ahead. A is always fun. Human highlight reel rob font against mom rice fascinating fight again at one thirty five. Alex moreno against anthony pettus spoke about pets. Big fight from renault. Greg hardy gets marshon. Deborah doesn't get me all that excited but hey whatever floats your boat. And there's a bunch of great names on the on the prelims as well including julian robertson. Doing really well one twenty five doron win many dc anyway like i said something for everyone and a great way to end twenty twenty. This was the card by the way that was supposed to be headlined by the words for my before to not getting it. We were also supposed to get a fight from kayla harrison on thursday in titan fc but unfortunately just found out today wednesday that her opponent joseph cotten weighed in. Actually she didn't away. Harrison weighed in at one fifty. Five cotton didn't even make it to the skill. She had to be hospitalized because she couldn't get under. Get this a hundred and eighty pounds. She couldn't get under a hundred and eighty pounds for a one fifty five pound fight. That's insane kayla tells me she tried to still get on the card. She even offered to relay in an hour. One sixty five commission said no as a right this second. She tells me she's still trying to remain on the card against someone. But that's just something i've never heard of. I mean twenty. Five pounds is is insane. So we're not getting kayla harrison's titan. fc debut at least as of right now maybe that changes the next few hours but at least as of right now On thursday night now. Like i said at the top. This is the final show of twenty twenty and yes. We're getting one more show on monday with c. But i i just wanted to say a few things about this year. And if i could you know maybe break the fourth wall for just a little bit. And i sort of alluded to this stuff from time to time and i've touched on it throughout the year but obviously no one predicted this year would go this way. I mean here. I am doing the show in my house. I used to go to bristol. Used to go to the south street seaport to do these shows. We don't do that now hopefully next year. We will and i'll be honest.

"And twenty. Hello everyone welcome back to the final wednesday wanna show of the year again. We've got another dc in hawaii coming your way on monday but this is the final wednesday interview. Show if you will. And i'm going to offer some thoughts about this crazy year at the end of today's show but i do wanna get into today's interviews because we got a lot and a lot of interesting stuff now later in the program. We're going to be hearing from anthony. Pettus anthony pettis fights this weekend on the final. Ufc fight card of twenty twenty. Finding a guy named alex on. I gotta tell you. I'm really excited to share this interview with you for two reasons number one today. Yes today. December sixteenth two thousand and ten ten years ago today. One of the most famous moments in may history happen the showtime kick glendale arizona final. Wbz card final wc fight final wbz round final wabc. minute anthony. Pettus goes off. The cage. Hits benson henderson knocks him down on route to winning the. Wc lightweight title. We all thought he would. Fight the winner of frankie edgar versus gray maynard that was happening on january first of twenty eleven. Of course they fought to a draw. He had to fight klaipeda because he didn't wanna waste he didn't want to sit around and waste time He ends up losing to klay good as a mess of situation. Eventually he got that title and he was a pretty solid champ before losing of course to. Rda you've seen one eighty five. But i'll never forget that moment. One of the most iconic moments in the history of the sport the time. I was working for verses which used to be the outdoor life network than then versus now. Nbc sports network and I was working on pre and post show with molly kerem. Who now of course is the host of i take. And you're i favor and we were in attendance for the final. Wc car wc great promotion. You can watch some of their old Fight cards on the ufc fight. Pass app and it was the final one for the blue man and all those great fighters and this is the final fight in a twenty three year old ampex polls off. Just surreal against a guy. By the way benson henderson who hails from arizona so he was the fan favorite. Just an amazing moments. I talked to anthony pettus about that on the anniversary of that kick but more importantly i talked to him about his journey and especially as of late. This man has come a long way. I've talked anthony pettis at least thirty times over the last ten years. I've never heard him sound like this. Never he is. he is a different guy. He's been working with a sports psychiatrists and it has opened them up to a whole new world so honest so revealing talked about his alcohol abuse. Marijuana abused talked about depression talked about turning everything around. He's only thirty three going into a big fight against toronto. Talked about not feeling entitled but feeling grateful and honored to be on a ufc card especially the last one of the air. Just really fascinating stuff from anthony pettus. I'm looking forward to sharing that with all of you also spoke to kevin harlan coming up. That great win over. Jacques race soza on saturday. Ufc two fifty six five. No in twenty twenty five no the last seven months because this first fight was in. May what a run for kevin han. We talk about who he wants next. Talk about his incredible years plans for twenty twenty one. He's a character. He's one of the breakout stars of twenty twenty looking forward to that. Also we talked to brandon marino who've course fought in the main event on saturday to a drug. It's davis figueredo. One of the best fights of the year. One of the best flyweight title fights of all time if not the best and unfortunately he lost his opportunity to win the title in his first title. Fight what a journey was for him. We had him on the show a couple of weeks ago. But he's probably gonna get an immediate rematch and a lot of people think he won that fight of course got nailed below the belt at one point in the fight. He's a great guy a smiley character. A happy go lucky character. I think he's one of the breakout stars of this year as well. And so i guess. Thoughts on the fight in also davis Tell me on monday which you can see on. The espn may youtube channel. That he was battling all kinds of illnesses going into that. Fight all the hospital stuff which has gotten him some heat from the fans. Which i think is unfair. I mean the guys just telling the truth and you're saying he he's. He's making up excuses he. He didn't lose the belt. What is it makes us for any of it So that's coming up as well. But i of course big news. This week reported on monday. Your romero has in fact signed with belts now. I see a lot of people trying to do. A whole like victory tour against me. 'cause i said last week on the dc in hawaii show. That belt or wasn't interested in neither was felt. That's a fact. in fact. Scott coker spoke to may junkie a told him that on either wednesday or thursday. That's a hundred percent fact but after the anthony rumble johnson signing and after listening to our show. That's a fact as well. His managers can say whatever they want. Coker changes mind. He liked the idea of rumble. Fighting romero now is that one hundred percent. The next fight will see. I think they're leaning in that direction. There might be some talk tournament all this stuff. The point is anyone claiming that i was wrong. Anyone claiming that. I had nothing to do with it. You're just.

Anthony Pettis To Fight Nate Diaz

"Odds. It's probably as they get worse. You know throw going three to five. I would say they'll probably hang a three three and a half is pretty standard for cormie fights as he is usually usually in championship main event fights for that five around duration so i would say it's probably right around three and a half <hes>. I'm not going to get involved. Both of these guys you know they can put the lights gourmet. That's the fact and you know nobody has really been better in that transition game of of pulling off stoppages in really winning the fight pillar to post if it went to a decision or if it didn't got finished along the way so i'm not gonna probably be getting involved in this either way from a betting perspective as the current prices but you know from a pig perspective man and you're never gonna get me to bet against a new corey unless he's fighting one john jones and that's the stance at i'll take on this one as well all right so we definitely have a lot to look forward to here in the main event now of course be pulling for steeping. Maybe i'll put i don't know maybe i'll put the emotional hedge on cormet here in this one but we've got some very good fights on the card otherwise anthony pettus and nate diaz pedestal right now minus one thirty favourite over at the sl. What are you thinking about this fight here christian yeah making his return polarizing guy and polarizing figure in the sport hasn't fought since the mcgregor series back in two thousand sixteen march fifth and august twentieth and you know if you kind of take those out of their <hes> the last wind comes in other take away his mcgregor win but it is what it is last wins have come in two thousand sixteen in two thousand fifteen nate diaz because of who he is is in the persona that he brings to the table largely gets a pass when it comes to the tactical version of it being mixed martial artist. He's a boxer man and and i'm not trying to take away from what he is but you know losses against rafael dough sanyo's josh thomson <hes> benson hernandez rory macdonald decay kim <hes> <hes> you know not exactly the murderers row of a resume india's largely gets a pass because people just absolutely love him on the other side. I feel like if it's just kind of won't we'll go away but he keeps fighting. Despite you know having to kind of the same analysis
