We're only talking about attractive. Like sexual attraction right. We're not saying you know if you're twenty or thirty pounds overweight like you look horrible. I Want WanNa look at you like I have a lot of friends that are fat but it is what it is. It's just it is what it is. And maybe they'll find somebody that's into that but you can't like decide that people are GonNa Change what they're attracted to that silly. You can't do that like they are attracted to people that put out more effort attracted to people that have the strength to get up at six o'clock in the morning and go to the gym before work. Something really hot about that. It's attractive to track if somebody takes care of themselves it is it just is now. It might not be you. But that's why the world's beautiful because we can all have different things that we like in different things we don't like but when a giant chunk of people are into this one thing like nice bodies. It doesn't mean that the it's all shallow or terrible or somehow another demeaning to people that don't adhere to those standards. No it's a competition. There's a some sort of a Physi- physical physiological competition between males and females in terms of trying to be attractive and that's one of the things they do. They make their body look better. Another thing they do is dress nice. They wear jewelry. They do stuff to make themselves. Look better the idea that making your your body look better is somehow or another. This is a bad standard to adhere to. When you take your big body that you're not taking care of and you wrap it up and all this crazy closed and all these ribbons and bows and he show your bare midriff. Because you're brave and you get your big Ole ass these genes like you're still looks pretty good. Don't get me wrong. Still a great honestly Adele. I thought Adele looked a little island. I thought she looked cuter. A little bit thicker now. She looks sort of looks. I mean granted. She looks healthier but she looks a little bit more. Just basic you know what I mean dislike every all the other popstars well in every movie where this guy kind of fuck up. Who's going to get in trouble? It's a Guy. Bill like you with a woman who's like two hundred and fifty pounds and she tells them what to do. So maybe it's like a thing like that's like when does it hasn't David Spade played a character like that. He's got a big wife or a big girl right. There's always a few of those things. So maybe that's you're saying maybe like to Dell with how that's right. Yeah Dude. Maybe that's you think is what big ones like. A Big Adele was big like gas control me Homie Down Navy and I wanNA know what her voice sounds like. What if she sounds horrible now because she had that operatic right? Yeah our full powerful voice. As conversation with a buddy told me like to have a ball gag. Put his mouth like really was about during sex. I think exactly. There's this a podcast. Yeah okay like what people are into him saying you know. I'm not saying that people can't be into big girls. There's a lot of people into big girls but a lot of people are into everything you know but that's okay too like a lot of people are into weird stuff. You gotta try out different things. I think if you can if you can get it. It's fun dude. People's brains are not the same right the idea that what you like. I'm supposed to like what I like. You're supposed to like you spend so much time watching pro wrestling. Yeah I watch it every now and then my God. It's crazy move. I can't yeah but you can were different. You can too you just you. Just haven't yet. I'll never give up on push to do a fight companion with a wrestling events sometime as a comic. You probably the greatest wrestling in terms of like. Who's a real evangelist? Your wrestling evangelist. You're always trying to get people to watch pro wrestling area. I don't think it's for everybody but I think I think I think you would love it. I don't think so without the the WRESTLEMAINIA event. The runner takers match. And that's a cell to him. I liked girls girls wrestling more realistic wrestlemanias great. What about the undertaker? You didn't like it was very cinematic. They've been doing things more like late because they don't have an audience. Yeah Ronda Rousey. She made a great transition to ww. She really did she really did. Yeah she's great at it. Well she's a pro you know like that's why she was a medalist in judo in the Olympics. That's why she was a beast she's a pro and she took to that like a pro like she really played the he'll well she played mean. Well yeah it was great and physically. She could do so much with her. Judo is so much shit in the way how strong she has wished you'd throw women around. It's pretty crazy and because of that. That's that's what really works when it looks like an like. She messed something up. Sort of is the best stuff That's what you sort of feel real right. Why don't you just watch real ship? Fuck do watch watch real stuff to. There's a huge crossover people that enormous r. m. a. an pro wrestling thinking like really respected journalists in big time. They were all they. Were all going crazy over wrestlemainia. I couldn't believe it area. Awani and Brad Okamoto. All of them are talking about. I could not believe it because I follow. I don't follow many people on twitter but I follow those guys. These ensure enough the one like wrestling journalist that I followed on it Was like this is crap. This is the worst wrestlemainia. Like I'm like Oh my God nuts. That's but isn't that always the case. Someone's going to say it's fucking terrible and someone's GonNa say the best thing I've ever seen right with fucking everything yep thing God damn it. Yep and that's like why. The Irishman shocked me. You know it's not like parasite where it's like. Wow what a crazy work of art. But it was a great scorsese movie to me and like the bad. There's a bad for everything now. And whoever got that out there that the Irishman bad made it better for me because it lowered my expectations. I saw people commenting about ozark. Negatively commenting about ozark. Mike Okay. This is just proof of my thing. That shows masterpiece gets a masterpiece. If you're into a dramatic thriller where you don't know where the fuck they're going shows it goddamn masterpiece. Every show leaves you hanging on the edge. You can't wait to find out what the fuck happened. Yeah it's a masterpiece and was reading. All these dismissive comments will say. Oh my God thank. You just puts it on perspective. Who Are we listening to? Who's writing that Jason? Bateman a monster. The fact that he's directing that is insane that's a great transition to Dir- directing one time though. His daughter had a cell phone and she was She had an android phone and she was making text to him. And like he's making a text to her and they would see the dot dot dot dot dot. Dot's you don't get those on android phone. Oh very interesting. You get those if you've got a phone bitch right. That's why Ian Edwards keeps android son. I don't want anybody to know what I'm texting from. Fucking computer he goes you tell me you could be Texas. Should someone's reading it on a computer? Why is it even on? There is right a text message in your laptop just felt violated like what is this. Why are you texting me here? Why is it showing up here? I'm trying to get away from my phone working over here doing. Yeah that's annoying right. I just got a new laptop and I can't figure out how to shut that off. You gotta you gotTa go into your settings. I couldn't yeah you can shut it off but sometimes it's turns on again. It's super annoying. It's weird too because apple figured out that the blue bubble looks better. It's really simple and so if a text message comes in it doesn't just say text message instead of I message. Now you also get a different color pitch. Imagine if it was black. But here's the thing is it's like a black with white letters is pretty dull. Yeah that'd be the best. But here's the thing well you can. You can do that to get nighttime mode. I gotta do that. You don't know about that. The I know I've mentioned this before but the thing that really bothers me about it. Is that the the color for the APP is Green They fucked up by putting the mail APP blue and you can't just have another blue APP. Yeah but when you do get a green bubble with a black screen is not as bad. The color combination of green on black is not as bad as a green on white. Green and white is kind of offensive. Looks wrong it doesn't belong with it. It's like they tricked us. It's very wise because all texts used to be green and then they realize Polish better sh- quickly quickly take the blue. They just took blue. They took it. But here's the thing if you have a an android phone and you send it through their messages APP You know the they're a little client. They used to send text messages. You can have it all kinds of colors you could. Actually you could change it. You could make it read. You can make a black you could. You could do a bunch of shits all customizable. That's why they like it but apple keeps you locked into the little system. I've updated my windows. Pc recently and they're trying to do something like that. I'm not letting my phone and computer my job and it's like hey by the way you know you can connect your phone when you sign up now and have all of this shit here like whenever I think about. Let's see those messages. I read them back to myself. And the same voice as the demon trying to convince Bruce Jenner to be A woman would that be do as I read? I read them. I can connect till phone. Come joing features you would know a little bit about this or something. I discovered last night. But there's a new popular game that's out and the anti cheat Like program that runs in the background of your computer is goes all the way down to the kernels of your computer which is something pussy but nothing wrong. They're now saying that. This is a new kernel the company that owns and runs it as base in China and the potential spyware racist. Nothing wrong with China. He stuff in your colonels. Lock into the Matrix. How long before the person gets in the Matrix the we have five years? Even I don't think so. I don't think we have five years for. We have bolts in the back of our head. That we tie into a clamp big old hose thing right here I was looking around. There's a this is a potential Jesus Christ University a Kovic tracking. Oh they're detest with less than thirty people below my God that is so crazy and track stroke patients in changes in your breathing and lungs or something like sounds in there that connect to a device. Which is your phone and let you know if somebody's what better way to get integrated with the grid then to create a virus. That makes you wear a mask taste where humanity can't touch each other. Gus stay away. No social context. So you're getting more and more addicted to your TV and your phone more and more addicted to your laptop..

"Ado here is my conversation with the one and only Bob. Arum stick around. After my conversation with Bob Arum give you some thoughts on Donald Surani in his recent interview with my colleague Brad Okamoto but for now the one and only the often imitated the never duplicated the founder and CEO of top rank boxing. What's up with these days? Let's check in with the man himself. You know what's funny the first time that I've ever heard about the corona virus. I swear on my life it was through you. I was listening to the radio and you had a show. This was End of January. You gotTA show in February in China right before the while their fury fight and you called it off. And you said you're not going to travel to China in a contract some cockamamie disease you call the cockamamie disease and I was like wow. That's such a great line. Is Bob Airline to introduce me to happen was we had. I had gone over Last year In probably November issue to China Hainan Island deserted island of China's spotted giants. High cow is the place. Where the developing this fabulous resort and golf courses We made a deal with them to bring over a fight which happened to be. Ramirez postal at Chinese fight is on the card and put it on in conjunction with Chinese New Year The beginning of February. We'll do it in the morning on a Sunday morning so it could be telecast back day by Saturday night on Saturday night and everybody was enthused beautiful place. Everybody was looking for The the the the experience and then we got the first report that an outbreak of something called Corona virus or whatever they were calling at Brogan out in China but it seemed like it was just limited the Wuhan City giant. We were on an island. I wasn't concerned. I had arranged transportation for Ramirez. Go Style and then we got reports that the disease has spread out of who had They were I think. Fifteen cases reported on the island and even Macau at about twenty cases. And then we said we discussed with. Espn a either. This may be too dangerous. You know going over there is revenue was buried. That China wasn't talking much about the virus and So we decided to call off what respond the evangelist Cockamamie disease cleared up. And by that time unfortunately Freddie Roach and postel when we're already in on the island because they've got wanted to get a jump on the training and Ramirez leaving that night to go to the island and I stopped. Ramirez recalled it off and before I did. I called the devoutly people in China on the island. Lovely people uncomfortable and said look. We're going to have to postpone this. Call it because of this corona virus in our. I don't know what it is but seems like it's spreading and this was in January ended January and the Guy said thank God you call goal at all because more than half of our reservations at the downs have been canceled because people were already realising China's remember. This is the end of January where we knew this was something that not only was serious but was spreading out side of it. We knew it with our limited resources we know ESPN Unfortunately the Princeton in the United States Senate would go away. Would it K- it's it's. It's been an unbelievable a few months and I WANNA ask. I missed for not asking at the top. Are you doing okay as your family? Do they know that your anger wrongdoing okay. my son with his family is in he's a dean of education at UC Irvine. Narran Laguna there Hunkered down there doing well. Our daughter in Brooklyn she and her family doing well. obviously a worried about people in New York because it's spread so much in New York dead doing well so we're all doing well you know. I mean Todd My wife Son Stepson is he and his family has been locked down there and the daughter daughter my stepdaughter is with our family and the in Las Vegas and they're okay our all okay. Because we're doing the right thing to the best of your knowledge. How many events have you been forced? Top rank has been forced to either postpone or cancel in the midst of this. I know exactly I know exactly It started with Luckily Luckily we got the February twenty-second Fury A- and wildfire had been studying much of we were. We lost the event much We lost an event much seventeen. We lost an event in On much at twenty five and we lost the four events in April. So we've lost a seven events that we're GONNA make up once we get up and running and Start putting them on without spectators In starting June. And we'll get to that in a moment but I'm just curious. Are you able to estimate how much money you have lost result of the cancellation of those events? I nine Again when I got to get a bail out from the governor when GONNA look for a bail out from the government. It's hard to say how much you lose you know because we don't do it. By an event by event basis and again these events will be made up. So it's hard to say what we've lost but two of the events were in Madison. Twig on the fourteenth on the Seventeenth Saint Patrick's event. One of them was going to be absolutely huge. The one at the end of March in Las Vegas. I'm sorry that's the one at end of March was in Canada Quebec Canada with better. Be off the great A light heavyweight champion April we add number of events That we lost but the Big One was April twenty five which was the monster. Inouye the great bantamweight from Japan and thousands of people coming over from Japan was going to be a Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas to watch that fight and that was a big loss loss from the standpoint though loss of revenue. But it is what it is. I mean you know we I look at myself and the the the lack of income as collateral damage For something that will certainly not responsible but it's there and you gotta live through. I mean I'd never seen anything like this in my life. But you know you have to just soldier on. I was just GonNa ask you. You know you've been promoting boxing for fifty four years. Would you say that these couple months have been the most challenging times of your boxing promoter? Career real you would the truth. No because we were it. Were at a position where we're ends. Edyta WE CAn't do anything about scheduling events will not going to violate any law when not going to jeopardize the health of the end result is that we haven't done any events and if you ask me the truth it's probably the most relaxing time that I've had Since I started promoting boxing In nineteen sixty six. So I mean I gotta be honest about you. Get up in the morning. You don't bother to shave. Make them folk couple of calls You'd do programs like this you know. I never assumed before night but I gotTa Stop. And then he goes swimming in the afternoon. You read books newspapers magazines. You Watch the television news than the evening. You watch great great stuff that you'd never ever watch without this on television will the great streaming services. I mean I've watched some unbelievable Entertainment and so again you you can you know. Look at something as being chicken shit because of How bad it is the fact that you can't put events on. Would you gotTa Make Chicken Salad and you have to get on and enjoy it the best way that you can. Obviously I know you weren't around during the Spanish flu but I'm wondering in your early days as a promoter. Did you ever talk to anyone? Who PROMOTED BOXING DURING THE SPANISH? Flu because there were boxing events. Unfortunately some boxers died as a result of the fact that they were boxing during that pandemic that was the last serious pandemic of this kind onto hit the world One-third of the world population was infected by the virus. Did you ever talk to anyone about what it was like putting on Events? And can you use that information? In This Day and age the truth I was born in. Nineteen thirty one. By the time I grew up and was out in the world. I had been lured with tales about The Second World War and all the destruction the horrible things that happened before during and after the war I had never heard really except vaguely about the Spanish flu. I had no idea that so many people die during the Spanish flu. When I heard the word Spanish flu I just believed in my own mind that it was just another situation. That was a little bit more virulent than the usual flu. Seasonal flu that we experience almost every year so the answer is no. I never thought nobody ever in boxing older guys like Harry Markson Teddy Brenda and the Jack Solomons and I knew a malone talk with a mall. There was never ever even a remote mention of the Spanish flu so now here you are mentioning June. And I'll ask you about that in a moment but I'm wondering if prior to June like you know in April and all this were you at all tempted to look at other locations to look at overseas spots. Islands Tribal land things to keep the train rolling along or once you had to cancel those events at Madison Square Garden. Or You guys just shut down until further notice where you ever tempted to try to figure out some alternate plans based on my experience in China. An hike out where cancel the event. I realized pretty soon after during February that this would be a long term problem. That would be something that affected everybody around the world and.

"You two thirty eight stack I left Don hanging. Prior to the brakes. Let's go back to Don in L A. And it'll be joined in a matter of moments by bread Okimoto of ESPN. Don, what's up? Oh man. Yeah. Thanks for keeping me, man. You know, I was I just wonder your opinion like there's a contrast between stand up fighters that learn how to grapple if these survive like the great GSP started out as a striker. But then you learn jujitsu wrestling cetera et cetera. Versus a guy like a Conor McGregor that gets humiliated, on the ground doesn't seem to put in the time ever. You know, I mean, I didn't mind when that Chechen guy like you would talk now crushing them like a python. You know, it's just what gets into guys me and my background is more from striking. I'm just an old Geezer, but still, I work on grappling. Just so I won't get humiliated got, you know, I know I understand what you're coming from Don. But. Maybe the most dominant fighter in the history of the sport. He's an incredible wrestler. He's got an amazing strength. His grappling is second to none. So I have a feeling that both you and I would both be humiliated, anyone would be humiliated. And so actually CONNER one around counters, the only fighter to everyone around against Habib in the UFC. So he didn't do as bad as a lot of people say, after the fact and even my partner chill son. And I was watching the fight with him. He thought that his wrestling was actually not that bad. And I don't think hunter was at one hundred percent. I'm not giving him excuses. But I think the second time around, I think he'd actually have a closer fighting in beep as crazy as that sounds, he's not fighting Habib. Of course in September it's just Emporia, but I have a feeling they will flight before it's all said and done. All right. Let's go to the phone lines and say Hello to my colleague. Brad Okamoto, who is somewhere in Chicago. I think on route to the United Center bread. How are you? I'm great man. And yes, I end in route actually sitting in the in the car in front of the hotel waiting for one Michael bisbee to joint base with you here allowed British accent, the background. I apologize before that is Michael Vistan crashing your radio show. I have been in that spot before he is always late. And so, I feel like we have another ten fifty minutes before he emerges. But probably let's stick with the one eighty five to five pound team here for a second because just moments. Go get Chris Wyman pop in out of nowhere until said he has officially decided to move up to a five breaking news, not related to thirty eight but I was wondering what do you think of this move for wideman? Yeah, I think, you know, I think it was it was going to be coming at one time or another for Chris.

"You two thirty eight stack I left Don hanging. Prior to the brakes. Let's go back to Don in L A. And it'll be joined in a matter of moments by bread Okimoto of ESPN. Don, what's up? Oh man. Yeah. Thanks for keeping me, man. You know, I was I just wonder your opinion like there's a contrast between stand up fighters that learn how to grapple if these survive like the great GSP started out as a striker. But then you learn jujitsu wrestling cetera et cetera. Versus a guy like a Conor McGregor that gets humiliated, on the ground doesn't seem to put in the time ever. You know, I mean, I didn't mind when that Chechen guy like you would talk now crushing them like a python. You know, it's just what gets into guys me and my background is more from striking. I'm just an old Geezer, but still, I work on grappling. Just so I won't get humiliated got, you know, I know I understand what you're coming from Don. But. Maybe the most dominant fighter in the history of the sport. He's an incredible wrestler. He's got an amazing strength. His grappling is second to none. So I have a feeling that both you and I would both be humiliated, anyone would be humiliated. And so actually CONNER one around counters, the only fighter to everyone around against Habib in the UFC. So he didn't do as bad as a lot of people say, after the fact and even my partner chill son. And I was watching the fight with him. He thought that his wrestling was actually not that bad. And I don't think hunter was at one hundred percent. I'm not giving him excuses. But I think the second time around, I think he'd actually have a closer fighting in beep as crazy as that sounds, he's not fighting Habib. Of course in September it's just Emporia, but I have a feeling they will flight before it's all said and done. All right. Let's go to the phone lines and say Hello to my colleague. Brad Okamoto, who is somewhere in Chicago. I think on route to the United Center bread. How are you? I'm great man. And yes, I end in route actually sitting in the in the car in front of the hotel waiting for one Michael bisbee to joint base with you here allowed British accent, the background. I apologize before that is Michael Vistan crashing your radio show. I have been in that spot before he is always late. And so, I feel like we have another ten fifty minutes before he emerges. But probably let's stick with the one eighty five to five pound team here for a second because just moments. Go get Chris Wyman pop in out of nowhere until said he has officially decided to move up to a five breaking news, not related to thirty eight but I was wondering what do you think of this move for wideman? Yeah, I think, you know, I think it was it was going to be coming at one time or another for Chris. It was just a matter of what and you know that that guy has had so many setbacks in his career at terms of of injuries. And you and I have talked about this in the past. It's sometimes when you hit when you hit a certain number of those, you do start to wonder if maybe the way cut, you know, not that, it's, it's the reason for them.

"So. Stance stand by for that. I I didn't want to start with this topic again this week because it feels like we've started with Conor McGregor the last couple of weeks. But as we are taping this at around two fifteen pm eastern time on Wednesday afternoon. April third, it seems like the most talked about thing in MMA is the back and forth between Conor McGregor hubby muggy made off on social media. And in particular Twitter yesterday Conor McGregor sent out a tweet mocking. I guess you can say Feb Raga made offs wife. And then shortly thereafter, he deleted that tweedy. Also sent out a tweet about a family member of his in an truly there after he'd Lou that tweet, and then today Habib after those tweets, obviously, blew up because nothing stays deleted on social media now has responded and has said some things about Connor. And it just really feels like this has gotten really really. Ugly. And this has turned. It reminds us of what happened back in October and in the build up to their fight at U of C to twenty nine and it's it's bringing back those emotions, so I wanna get your take on that Sandu. I also wanna say Hello to our colleague Brad Okamoto who's in Las Vegas right now. And welcome him into the program bread. How are you? Doing good. How are you guys doing great good to have you back on the show? So so like, I said, you know, I I didn't wanna start with this. But I feel like we have to start with it. Because it's the biggest story happening. Right. This moment. Do you share that sentiment on me? Like this. This is family religion. This is even worse in my opinion than some of the stuff that was said and done leading up to that fight a UFC two twenty nine and it's just it's not why we love the sport. Right. Like, I think we all love trash talking. I think we love feuds and the culmination of feuds and heat if you will. But this feels like it's getting really uncomfortable and could turn very very ugly and going to a really dark place very soon. Do you agree? Yeah. Totally agree. I mean, I really don't have much more to add I agree with you. The trash talk can be fine and Conor McGregor is brand of trash talk has been fine up until about you know, a year ago. I mean, I thought he was always great at identifying things that that could bother his opponent like logical warfare. If you will always always very strong. But I mean, this this is just. It's I mean, there's nothing good about it. There's no good that comes out of this is just being sensitive like saying, oh, you know, I'm offended by this by that. No, this is completely unnecessary. It it goes against sort of. I think what we like about both guys, and we'll be like about this sport. So I'm in agreement with you. I think it's lazy banter, quite frankly between them, I you know, I mean Connor going on Twitter rampage last night, where he's posting photos of, you know, select photos of sparring match with a retired boxer there.

Again, grabs the microphone and says there's a lot of hope out there. And that hope feels good you give me twenty five minutes your time Saturday night, and I'm gonna make it worth your while gangster topic gangster line and nobody cuts.

And then he got the shingles. And he had to pull out. You got the shingles? And then you have to pull out now he gets a hernia like fifteen hours before the car and has to go and have surgery today when he's supposed to be headlining. I mean, this is as Astra says against my heart breaks for Robert Whittaker as I told you I consider him the most underrated champion in the U of C as tough as they come. But the men just can't catch a break horrible, Mark in New York. What's on your mind? Hey, there really enjoyed the Expos sneakers, by the way. Thank you. Appreciate that. Those the best part of my day so far. Yes. It was mine too. I can't wait for the Montreal Expos come back. It's going to happen. But anyways, I wanna just a couple of quick questions. One. Do you think the winner of the female out between the scene if she is she wins or you're gonna have Taylor? Roles are really get paid. And also don't ask style under the best kickboxer being the UFC. I appreciate the call. I don't think that the winner of that fight is going to get page hearing that pages in the works for another opponent. Why stop under best kickboxer in the certainly up there. He's fought on the highest stages possible. The biggest stages possibles far as kickboxing's thirty five for glory. Didn't have the best ending his kickboxing career before he decided to focus fully on mixed martial arts. But there's also been go on sake who's made the transition over and others as well. So I don't know if I'd consider them the best, but certainly up there. I think that's a fair. You know, that's a fair assessment to say that he's one of the best Josh in queens. How are you? Great that some some crazy news. We just got there concerning wherever big it's the card. It's horrible. I'm so depressed right now. I was really looking forward to that fight. Yeah. I think as you said on your show this week the best the best card part about the car today was that we have a little middleweight tournament going on. So now that that one's kinda out the window after this. Is there another division out there that you think would we could set up? You know, if you're matchmaker set up a really good foremen tournament main and combing. Perfect for that welterweight as well. Lightweight is the first one that comes to mind bantamweight, certainly needs it. I wish they would just stick with the bantamweight contenders fighting for the bantamweight belt, and and stop with this this nonsense of having pseudo go up just let him stay there. So those are two or three that come to mind every division could use a tournament every division. All right. We gotta take a break coming up in just a few minutes. We're going to be joined by chills. Son. Who is in Melbourne? We'll get his take on Robert Whitaker getting out of the the main event on just a couple of hours notice is a horrible turn of events. We're gonna talk to him. We're gonna talk to Brad Okamoto. We'll talk to all of you. Don't go anywhere. One eight eight say's peon, we'll be back after this. Gentlemen. Welcome back to the program.

"Trying almost take a breath every once in a while with how everything unfolded within ten minutes, the pay per view event was off the air and with licensing rights, and fees and different things. Sportscenter initially with the still images. I think at some point, you know, via social media, and how people can go back and rewind on their TV now. And and take those images we're going to see them on social media more than you're going to see them on TV outlets. Probably in the next ten hours twenty four hours. But it was ugly. And I think it could have been a lot worse than right here. I want to say and not being there. We'll hear from Brad Okamoto coming up in about twenty eight minutes. Whatever they did to plan for events like this. The people who were involved the people who are still at T mobile arena in Las Vegas sorting things out watching video seen who was involved seen again. Three people arrested who came over the top and went after Conor McGregor. Mcgregor has refused to press charges charges. Still can be brought against those three. But the fact that spectators really didn't get involved at no point. Did we hear about anything else? Escalating back in the tunnels of the arena and the locker rooms anything like that a tip of the cabinet job. Well, done to all the officials who are involved law enforcement arena officials folks did their job. Caters they did their job. Habib. I don't care. You know, once I was at a holiday party. A worker said something to me that he shouldn't have said. I went after him didn't get physical. But I got up in his face. The next day at work. I'm told by my boss. I don't care what he says to you in the future. You're not allowed to go after them. You don't ever go after a person like that? Folks. I disagreed. I disagreed one hundred percent. I didn't talk to that guy at work for two years outside of anything that was professional within the workplace. Nothing personal. Didn't those were my guidelines? Those are my ground-rules from that moment going forward. Personally, Habib called everything in the book McGregor made it personal talking about him talking about family members below the belt sophomoric, immature, whatever you wanna call it. It was all about the buildup you and I going out and paying sixty four ninety nine four UFC two twenty nine. All the stuff that should not have affected a professional fighter. He went out. And did what he was supposed to do did what he wanted to do what he said he was going to do and winning the fight. But what he did immediately after. I can't help. But think he had that in his mind somehow some way that he was going to go do something. Now the way he did it immediately going over the top of the octagon and confronting people not one person, but people multiple people. That shows you right there. I think in terms of the mentality professional fighter or not. He wasn't all there in that moment. We talk about all these things all the promotion leading up to fights like this. It's for us to go out and purchase the fight. It's for people to go to Las Vegas spent all their money spent a lot of their money on being in an arena. For most of us the rest of us in record breaking numbers. We're not even prior to the fight. Dana white saying, we're gonna break numbers. We're going to break records with our numbers in terms of in-house, and in terms of pay per view buys. People to go to Las Vegas. It's been what almost over four hours since the fight wrapped up. Nobody's talking about anything since then. Eight seven to nine three seven seven six we allow you we want you encourage you to join us on sportscenter allnight to share your thoughts on it right now. We welcome in Kevin in jersey. Kevin. How's your Sunday? So far. Pretty good. Pretty good little crazy after that melee. So just is your continuing. Are you wrapping up? Are you saying good morning? You're saying good night. Wrapping up I had a long workday of able to get out in time to see McGregor. I missed the whole undercard little upset about that his great. But I was able to catch the McGregor for beat site. So I'm happy about that. Let's talk first. You're you strike me. You sound like somebody who's into the fighting. What did you take away from the three plus rounds and the submission? Couple of things I think the beep actually outboxed him, which is incredible. I would've never thought that going in. But the biggest takeaway from this fight was her being not calling the fight in the second round. He needs to be there to protect these players and McGregor took a beating in the second round that fight should have been called on the McGregor fan. And I'm saying it right now, I'm looking at my girlfriend has going on it should have been called in the second round when he's on his back catching blows left and right. So you're more, you know, more about this. I'll tell you right now, you know, more about this than I do. You're more educated. You you have you can speak intelligently about how he went about fighting. But you have a little bit more of an appreciation the fact that he was able to rebound go another round and sort of almost start turning things. Not that the fight was ever in his favor, even a person like me can say that. But you know, when he got through the third round, you're thinking, okay, he's he's tired. But he might be able to get this to go the disk. I was hoping he was going to be able to do that. But the fight should have been over. I mean, some of these these reps and these judges, I mean, I thought Vegas did it right? I think New York does a terrible job of these fights Vegas has a history of doing better than most. And I think they made a big mistake. Big big mistake. And Kevin you'll be one to talk about that. But that's not a point. That's going to be brought up in casual conversation or in conversation over the next forty eight hours. You're absolutely right. Everything else is going to work that but that fighting is over in the second round. And I would love to see what happens if I can find one more thing in there. That was a tactical hit. There's no way that that was not a planned attack on Conor McGregor. The way these guys simultaneously rushed to the cage when jumped onto mcgregor's corner. Those guys were occupies they knew they wouldn't be in the ring to protect him. It was all a plot. I can't wait for the investigation to happen for them to see how technical they really acted. And I really hope to be in his crew are in trouble. I hope they get data white alluded to the fact that he may never be allowed in the country again. So Kevin if this was over in the second round the way you said, it should have been this happens. I think so I think this happens in the second round. I think this was a plot. I think could be as competent as he was. I think he knew it was going to despite the way he handled it again, I remember Gregor fan. He'd beat him from the start up from start to finish. He won the fight. He won the fight. He outboxed in which I'm so impressed. Kevin appreciate the phone call. Enjoy your Sunday. Hopefully, you're on the couch watching a little football. What makes a man I've got Alan. I've got Connor. I've got Troy on the other side of the glass. What makes a man decide? I'm going to go into a situation where it's three four five six ten against one. And I'm going to do what I wanna do. And I I want to do damage. I'm going to get to one guy, and he had one guy in particular picked out, but you have to understand I go in. Yes. Connor and Allen might be on their phones. Watching me do what I'm doing. But they're also going to try to step in. And within. Going over the top. And then over the top. Yeah. Understand that he was really putting himself in harm's way. Or at least you think that? Kevin in Chicago in the windy city. Kevin welcome in. Hey, what's up Steve nature, heavy points to make? So basically the counter type train got exposed the first time you face it in prime wrestler. He got he got gift deponent's. He got he got fast track to the title with favourable matchups goes back to the Socrates quote back in three seventy BC. Zeus outstanding runner. You're not be the equal of an average wrestler. I know the casual fans like to watch this strikers by wrestlers dominate the sport of may dominate combat. So it's always been I know the casual fans don't like to see the wrestler and grind out wins and use their grappling meditate control their opponents, but wrestlers dominate. I mean counters biggest one was Eddie Alvarez. Who is a war torn veteran doesn't have the best chin? And Jose Aldo. Another war war-torn veteran who doesn't have the best chin. When he goes up against a prime could be with good wrestling. You got dominated. So same thing with their until. About a month ago with Tyron Woodley as a good wrestler, and it's got whooped. It's time for the money, man. The money changers are Emmanuel Dana white to bring the sport back wrestlers Deo. It's they deserve their spotlight. Guys. Those guys are they you know, they might be the best inside the octagon entertain you and and and and win their matches. But are they the best guys Conor McGregor is a showman Conor McGregor is what gets the pay per view buys up to the numbers at their act? That's why I don't like I don't like watching amateur wrestling. It's all about the love of the sport. There's no money involved to get money involved in boxing, MMA sport goes out the window. It's all about money Abe review by then rating. Subash crap amateur. Wrestling wrestling world championships coming up. It's all about the best man win. They all got an equal opportunity. You win the world team trials, and then you get chance to run recipe, your countries, and I'm amazed. It's all about popularity. It's about money and appreciate the phone call from Chicago from Kevin it's about this. This is an organization that wants to make it's money from Dana white on down. It's about making the money. It's about the showmanship. It's about a lot of the other things. So I understand if you wanna call in and say, you know, what he's not at the same level in terms of being in the octagon and being a fighter and we talked earlier and and Conor McGregor. No matter the age or experience right now. And we have people defending him and saying different things his suspension that might be eighteen months. Two years for the other guy for Habib McGregor ages in that time, and I don't care. In terms of age. It's how much they fought how much they put their bodies through and McGregor. If you don't think he's at the skill set to begin with with the top tacticians inside the octagon. Those skills aren't going to improve..

"Still trying almost take a breath every once in a while with how everything unfolded within ten minutes, the pay per view event was off the air and with licensing rights, and fees and different things. Sportscenter initially with still images. I think at some point, you know, via social media, and how people can go back and rewind on their TV now and take those images we're going to see them on social media more than you're going to see them on TV outlets. Probably in the next ten hours twenty four hours. It was ugly. And I think it could have been a lot worse than right here. I want to say and not being there. We'll hear from Brad Okamoto coming up in about twenty eight minutes. Whatever they did to plan for events like this. The people who were involved the people who are still at T mobile arena in Las Vegas sorting things out watching video seen who was involved seen again. Three people arrested who came over the top and went after Conor McGregor. Mcgregor has refused to press charges charges. Still can be brought against those three. But the fact that spectators really didn't get involved at no point. Did we hear about anything else? Escalating back in the tunnels of the arena in the locker rooms anything like that a tip of the cabinet job. Well, done to all the officials who were involved law enforcement arena officials folks they did their job. They did their job. Habib. I don't care. You know, once I was at a holiday party. A co worker said something to me that he shouldn't have said. I went after didn't get physical. But I got up in his face the next day at work. I'm told by my boss. I don't care what he says to you in the future. You're not allowed to go after them. You don't ever go after a person like that? Folks. I disagreed. I disagreed one hundred percent. I didn't talk to that guy at work for two years outside of anything that was professional within the workplace nothing personal didn't talk to him. Those were my guidelines. Those are my ground-rules from that moment going forward. Habib called everything in the book McGregor made it personal talking about him talking about family members below the belt sophomoric, immature, whatever you wanna call it. It was all about the buildup you and I going out and paying sixty four ninety nine four UFC two twenty nine. All the stuff that should not have affected a professional fighter. He went out. And did what are you supposed to do? Did what he wanted to do did what he said he was going to do and winning the fight. But what he did immediately after. I can't help. But think he had that in his mind somehow some way that he was going to go do something. Now the way he did it immediately going over the top of the octagon and confronting people not one person, but people multiple people. That shows you right there. I think in terms of the mentality professional fighter or not. He wasn't all there in that moment. What we talk about all these things all the promotion leading up to fights like this. It's for us to go out and purchase the fight for people to go to Las Vegas spent all their money spent a lot of their money on being in an arena. For most of us the rest of us in record breaking numbers. We're not even prior to the fight. Dana white saying, we're gonna break numbers. We're going to break records with our numbers and terms of in house, and in terms of pay per view buys..

"That could be got in in his face earlier this week right okimoto joining us on the shell pennzoil performance line in your professional opinion is there any way this was staged or being used as some sort of a hype moment to prep for this weekend's fight well i think that there's always a possibility that conor mcgregor is looking at it that way that he he creates big moments and every moment is bigger than the last and so how do you keep creating these bigger moments what will you had to just get more and more outlandish and so maybe his mind you know this is a way to promote a fight some day and you know obviously i i don't think it's the best way to go about it i i do not believe it stage as i mentioned you know a fighter who's competing this weekend his name is michael he's got a very important flight he's fighting at that he is the former champion he was actually sitting right next to the window the connor blew out with that with that dali and you know i spoke to people who were with him he was transported to the hospital in an ambulance they listed it as minor injuries but he had hit cuts all over his face he has to go back now cut wait make wait for tomorrow the fight was in jeopardy if he doesn't fight that means he doesn't get paid you know putting him in that type of jeopardy i don't you know you'll see you're not going to allow that to to to book a fight that that has not even been booked yet talking to brad okamoto on the shell pennzoil performance line you talk to dana white dana is going to be on get up tomorrow at eight thirty am eastern on espn for those who want to hear from dana white but he said this was the most disgusting thing that's ever happened to the company where would you rank this because i'm sure there are some things that we can all remember in the history of the.
