"It's got covering that, but I looked at the card and I was like, this isn't international fight. I saw the Brandon Marino today. And here's where I think the UFC drops along. We've talked about it plenty of times on this show. As Brandon, when are you going to find a single mile? When is there going to be a you have three Mexican champions right now? In the fourth going to lose the men and new years. But the fourth jockeying for position. There's money being left on the table but the UFC is leaving money on the table actively because they're so comfortable. Dana admitted it, I think, three weeks ago to press conference. Somebody asked him, he was like, yeah, we fucked up there. We should have did that. Brandon Moreno fighting on Mexican Independence Day weekend would be huge. Huge. Be huge. Can I ain't gonna be around forever? No, but it's a different market. Yeah, we were me and dean talked about Tyron Woodley how they dropped the ball. And this leads me to Alex being Sterling when we get to UFC two 88. There's so much opportunity to push Al jamine Sterling. Because at this point now, he should embrace a fully made with a character. You can't beat me. Yeah. Right? So you gonna hate me. I told Al Joe, you're the most respected champion in the UFC. I don't know about that. You are. Embrace it. Now after this fight with sahu though, which we're going to talk about, I was like, you don't think you disrespected now? Way too fight they're going boy Sean O'Malley. You don't think it's bad now? It's going to get worse. The best thing you can do is embrace it because you can't trust them to put you where you need to be. You need to be doing sway in the morning. You need to do The Breakfast Club. You be on the shade room. You need to be in a Kevin Hart in the coldest balls. Joe budden pod. You gotta do all those things. He does say less with cash. Like I see Al Joe there. And I'm happy 'cause I connected them a while ago and I'm glad that I'm working out. But they should be everywhere. Do you see don't care? They did Leon Edwards and Kamaru Usman. You remember where that fight was at? London. Salt Lake City, Utah. Holy shit. It was. Salt Lake. Yo, you had two black men. Two Lake city. Two black men fighting Salt Lake City in the championship fight. That's mandingo fight. Salt Lake City ain't answer that fight? Not at all. It was like we already got enough black people to jazz. We don't want to see no goddamn Tyron Woodley in a Brit, why was that fight in Atlanta? I'm obsessed. Kamaru

"In haiti just happens to be fighting. Tony ferguson Yeah it's this fight. Absolutely rosengren grew my best part of the weekend. We always funny if you look at the two rows these gentlemen have traveled in the afc. They couldn't be more dissimilar. I mean divas. Vigorito came in. He was a force right away. He was stopping fools left. And right really knocking people out in ways that we don't see a lot of flyweights violently knocked people out even last year fighter of the year for a lot of outlets including ours which is really impressive when you consider how he started the year missing. Wait for a title fight. That just shows you how good that body must have been to overcome that. Meanwhile other side brandon marino. Coming in through the ultimate fighter. Kind of get as baby raised. Sixteen he was the sixteenth seed out of sixteen on a season. He's this baby face assassin. He hasn't really looked like a fighter isn't really act like a fighter. Sassan baby the assassin. Calm but me. He's just this perennial underdog all throughout his career. He wasn't even in the ufc years ago. He was kicked out. But it felt like he really opened is in december with that fight was the biggest factor for you going into this rematch Harthill stamina pays whoever's in ernst betrays them. I is getting to be in for a long night. I mean that first bite was five rounds and neither man really faulty. just got her just. There was some lobos low blows. Yes there were some moments got endanger but the pace never neither man relented. They both made wait fair and square but they were both coming off a fight camp. Like what twenty twenty four and then right into the by cam and they both had really easy fights twenty one days really both really quick finishes so they just jumped right back into went through the motions. They were ready to go. This is not months later. Figueredo made way fan square hundred twenty five pounds. A little bit of a struggle looked like death. He weighed in at what. The cutoff is. Eleven o'clock or eleven o'clock you win in like ten fifty nine and fifty nine seconds. Yeah we were talking about like we were talking like iran. There's like what if the champion miss. Wade's he's an hour after all. This is look good so bad made weight fair and square. I can't not think that would play back cutting back bad on the scale. I feel like it's might be a rough night for figuring out. I don't know. I don't wanna say that he's so's at the pit. Oh wow okay. Picking the upset. I was picking i was. I thought won the fight. The first fight if it wasn't for the logo I thought it was. It was fantastic. Fight brennan ran proven. He he did he fight. Sergio pettis five rounds in mexico. City is cardio. you're not isn't can't question that cardio i think if if you if he can survive two rounds against figueredo tall task as he did in the i. If i can't do it again the second fight and figuring out starts to fade a start those lou punches and just like deplete the gas tank. I think it's moreno losing until they. Until that i saw figure right on the scale i was picking him. They have seen. That i'm flipping to ban rancho by. I'll say decision wamena zig zagging. I'm going with the champion. And i actually think he's gonna have an easier time. This time around. I feel like he overlooked brandon marino. A little bit used riding quite a high you going to the i. Yeah and also. We've seen him struggle on the scale and he always ends up doing fine after were so. That's where my pick is. Let us finish out this of big fights with of course leon edwardsville champion nathan. The prodigal son returns stockton's favorites on. This is the first time. We're seeing nathan since two thousand and one thousand nine hundred and i'm not gonna lie. I never expected this matchup ever never once pictured this in my head nate diaz leeann edwards. The idea of it is still weird a little bit it's easily. The lowest profile is in terms of you know power opponent nate diaz has had. Let's start with leeann edwardsville because he does have a lot on the line here. If you're that guy if you're this sort of hard luck figure this guy who can't get any respect at all even eight fights in one of the hardest divisions of the entire sport and no one will even say your name. would it comes to title contention. This has to be manna from heaven. Right like this has to be the best possible outcome for you. Does this feel to you like the weekend. We're liane edwards can finally break through in a way that hasn't absolutely if we was out there beats nate diaz Dominantly how can you like dana. White's art said the winner. This file fight the winner. Who's been in covington. That's probably who knows if culver come to wins. The trilogy is there to in the past up for another title shot if he went so By like hey like you said you said best like he did. Not only is he fighting back. I think these ranked if i'm correct. He's in what he has his own rules man. It doesn't drinking so matter. Fernandez as nate says even if he loses his title so even ideas like am. I lose still far from tyler is. I'm still every five. Minutes is for tyler. I don't disagree with him. If lean on edwards and go out there and do what he did already a if he goes out there in does why like the below mohammed. Fight was unfortunate. Really good before that hurt the law with the. Hey if he goes out there and headaches and puts them away like come on. He's a star. Josh tom saw- josh thomson style or like or hate. He ate that head deacon mazda. They did and he kept going. I don't know if that editors also meant he's got a lot of scar tissue. Saw sure i've learned that split open. What does landed was paul himself. Left elbow larry. When he gets into clinton's calling sylvia all after the rda fight. Okay got him. The clinton just kept throwing that left. Elbow pham liane edwards clinched up. And i'm just license. His head open with that left elbow like he did against garner nelson like he did against failed us artist. And i'm just seeing all these gash mocks you might want another doctor. Stoppage against nate diaz canadiens. He gets that scene in the same spot. Every single fight It's i think it's i think it's to lose. I think it's one of the bigger favorites on. This heart is five rounds to five round non title main so but with with five rounds i do favorably on edwards. Well so. I wanna actually hit on something. You just mentioned one of the biggest favors on the card. He's actually the biggest favor on the car. Nate is out here as a five to one dog on some sports desk would have known if dude he still had the whole phoenix crowded. Now the palm of his hand and he wasn't even trying at all One thing before you know it just felt like you made a pick pick picking on land. Well then let me ask you one thing real quick before i make my pick this welterweight division kind of clear cut right now come are very dominant champion very active champion like you mentioned colby covington..

"Get to the guys who matter most. Let's get to the scab. Actually, he has multiple scabs. He's scabs. Plural. Johnny Scabs in the D. Johnny. What's up? Jimmy. Why is everyone okay with that skinny little crackhead looking bitch? Thailand, Edmonton, going back to the world with his fat smack. How it looks like a mix between Mick Jagger and Iggy Pop. He's so sick looking homeless people give him clean needles when he's walking down the street. When you can only three green beans before you throw up. It's not a badge of honor. Everything is looking. Everyone's looking forward to Matt. Advance profile. I'm thinking somewhere between 11 53 and 11 54 should be enough time. Trying to convince those match. Funny is like an exotic dancer. Things you're just trying to pay for college. I heard that call from well the other day. It was like when someone eats something nasty tells you have to try it and you try and it's even worse than you thought. It was great to hear from everyone's favorite punching bag mat in L A yesterday. Probably safe to assume he blow his stimulus money on Lakers tickets and flat billed hats. Now he's back in the jungle, hoping to knock five K office child support debt. Until Matt decides that he wants a sweat, copper pipes or glass pipes. We can expect these benders that continue. War Jeff from Richmond, having the dirtiest policemen at the table. Johnny Scabs. It is smack off season, right. This is what goes on. During the actual event. Guys called the crack each other. If you're not going to be in the event, you're going to call up and crack each other. Scabs. Scabs has always run on that line. All right, so really quickly. With Devon can are coming up. Next segment. I want to talk about Nate Diaz. I'm not gonna lie right? Yesterday was an amazing day for the side Hustle. Amazing because episode 1 77 of the General podcast featured one of my favorite dudes ever. Nate Diaz? No, I do not play favorites. They pay me not to play favorites. Hit this a million times on this show. I don't play favorites. Nate Diaz is one of my favorites. I've been hyping him like that way before we even got together and finally had a conversation yesterday, in fact, was the first time he and I ever came together. And if you thought that I had a good Thursday, did you check out Neyts Act at the UFC 2 63 pre fight pressure. Some guys might walk out. Walk out through a smoke machine. Nate Diaz is his own smoke machine. My man pulled out a Bly's e of his own strain. His own strain. Dacron mid pressure on TV, and he burned the entire rainforest down. It was incredible. Now, Look, I get that It's a different time. I'm here for it. But Nate Diaz turning a media room in Arizona. Right before a fight into a foggy day in Frisco is beyond just being different. Alright, that's beyond it being a different time, and that's beyond him being a different guy. Because Nate is different, and by different I mean, bleeping awesome. Awesome and that's not just me. A number of his peers look up to and idolize him. Now, remember, Nate's got a five round fight coming up are really dangerous fight against Leon Edwards, but it is not a title fight. It's not Brandon Marino is fighting for the flyweight title as the co headliner. He is fighting for a championship, and even he is blown away by how cool Nate is the first time I met an anything, he's an amazing person, bro. Guests fighting for a championship. This guy's a peer. He's like, Hey, man, this is amazing, Like like he's a kitty kid like, Oh, man, He's amazing. He's an amazing person, Brow. Yeah, This is the first time I met anything. He's had an amazing person, bro. Like he loves him. This is not some fan in the lobby. This is a guy fighting for a belt. He's fighting for a title Saturday night. It's not. I can't overstate how utterly awesome that is, and how awesome Nate is. And how well respected admired he is by fellow fighters. But all that happened after Nate guested on my pod. And that all happened after he told this incredible story. I asked him, Nate, When was your first fight Your first fight? Not in the cage. I'm talking about your first fight in life, and he told this amazing story. Remember my 1st 1st event. Thank your first event. What was your first event? How did that go? I didn't know it would be guys at a baseball field. I was down there hanging out by myself. And, uh, if you catch a foul ball, you get a soda, So I was like someone had a foul ball and that men have been got the ball. And then probably sixth grader. Kids behind me. We're trying to get the ball to, but I got it first, and I was older than them into all these baseball kids with him, and I want to give those kids and by that, Yeah, you I went home, and I got my brother some of his friends. Are they gonna do the tripping at the park? You know, let's go. Let's go, punk ass is there like, all right, let's go. And my friend my home and my brother relative like six guys that were like, Yeah. What's up while you're talking to didn't look like they were just punking them out. And then he comes back to Hey, what served as that would supply you want to find them? I'd like you ever do it to fight, for example, like 20 minutes every probably like five minutes, But it's about 20 minutes punched him. I had so many times and I'm trying to say my home was done by him and had a lot. But anyway, my plan that story of what attacking them myself is going to fight somebody because I didn't go there planning on fighting the guy when they're punk them out with my brother and his friends. And then, uh, they made me find him. So that was But that's where it all started. That's where it all started. So good. That is amazing. It was amazing when he told it to me yesterday, and it's an amazing story and playback. 80 s one of the ultimate warriors like always ready for a war, getting his start fighting in a baseball field in sixth grade because the foul ball was his and because his brother Nick made him throw hands with a kid who tried to steal the foul ball. It's an amazing story, and there's more to that story as to why Nate, One of that sort is so badly, But I'm going to save that for you to find on the pod now speaking of fighting itself This guy's a fighter's fighter. He is the ultimate warrior, but I did ask Nate straight up..

"Jeddah shoe ties. It up one to one good round. That is my point. You're not gonna be like actually psych after the fact or anything now you get the point limit. Okay live it up all right. So we're less than forty eight hours away and they will see to sixty three two title fights both a rematch from pretty close fights. We also have the return of nate diaz against the surging. Welterweight leon edwards. Who has in my opinion. Everything on the line in this one against native really has nothing to lose in this fight. So there's a lot of interesting matchups on this car james. We're going to begin with you. We know who's in the headline spot. We know what sells the tickets. What's on the marquee to sell this cards. The masses and all that is understandable but as a fans someone who covers the sport. James which fight on this card. Are you looking forward to the most. And why the opening fight of the pay per view. Paul craig jamal hill. Can't wait for this one. Know you guys have seen the videos of their altercation at the hotel. I dunno what. Paul craig said jemele hill but i love this stuff where fighters fired up. And there's you know some stop outside of the cage sort of leading into this and it's an important fight. I think the ufc knows what they're getting in. Both of these fighters here paul. Craig's had a pretty good run at heavyweight himself. He's a submission kenny's been submitting everyone in that division and jemele hill still undefeated the ufc. Right now and i think the winner this fight is gonna start getting those really big marquee names here and you know i think jamal hill is a great opportunity here to really propel himself into the contenders spot with the finisher over paul craig so this is the fight for me that i'm looking forward to the most because it's going to get the win. This fight is going to propel into that nice spot in the heavyweight division here You know hills looked awesome. The thing i like about jamal hills wells that he's a guy that you see do different things in the another fighters so fast as light heavyweight. He's got good nocco power just finished and his last fight and there's just again a good story line here. It's a good match making an houses ground game if this goes to the matt. How's he going to do against paul craig. We'd never really seen him tested there. So this to me is the is the. Maybe the most underrated fight on this card. And i'm glad to see the ufc. Put this on the pay per view where you know. We're gonna see to showcase quite well. So that's the fight for me. That i can't wait to see 'cause like i said. I think the winner is going to really be a household name in that light heavyweight division after saturday night jedi. You think like. I know you like to dig deep into the lucky bangers and ask you at least for the time being to hold onto that But in terms of like when you're looking at this car and you're just like damn. I can't wait for this one. What's the one that stands out to you. What stands out to me is apparently james Likes to witness murders because hillsdale acts of the brick softball crack. That is going to be interesting. For as long as ball craig's vertical. Which will be very short So i'm gonna disagree his his his choice there I'm going chalk here. And i don't care because i like they're good fights on this car. I'm super into the judoka. Brattle rebel fi like that fight is probably going to be awesome but easily the thing that the reason i'm tuning in outside of that i work in the space and sort of have to I want to rematch man Figgy small brandon marino leg. That was the second best fight of the year last year. The only reason lost is one of the four greatest fights of all time also happened in two thousand and twenty de fight was bananas and yet it just happened a few months ago but like i'll watch that fight every saturday you're going to say. Hey you're going to get one of these every saturday. Take my sixty five bucks. Y'all like i'm super in watch that again. Maybe it's different like maybe both men have adjusted their tactics but even if it's not if they just do the exact same thing again. That is going to be awesome so very clearly. That's that is my choice for the thing. I'm most excited about okay. So we have these two title fights you just mentioned one jed. We also had the main event outta sonya the minus two sixty favourite. I'm looking at right now. Against vittori figurados the minus two ten favorite against brandon marino and the odds on the comebacks according to the betting lines have brannon marino as the more likely challenger to leave. Glendale is a champion. He's run a plus 175 batori around the plus twenty so jed the anime betting community along with their money that they're wagering. Do they have this right. would you say marino is the more likely challenger to become an new on saturday. Or do you think pretoria's has the better chance of of walking champion. I think that it is corrected. Merano more likely. Don't want to be clear. I don't think either man is super likely I'm a little surprise. The odds don't favor vittori given that we literally just all the marina fighting the very clearly lost but four point deduction But no i think that's right. I give martin george very little chance of doing anything. Substantive tickets scissor Outta sonya this weekend which is embar. Why not like superstock. Don that fight Amid sign good good contender. But yeah i think merano look at marino. Can initiate more scrambles He has a chance here again. I don't think it's a great chance but that is one of the things that makes vicky small so exciting is. He's a violent mother effort and swings baseball bats but he also just kinda like has defensive lapses and we'll just sorta screw around points in time and that can get him in trouble so marinas definitely going to have more opportunity to succeed for the tory to succeed. He he's going to have to fight a perfect fight and is he's probably also going to have to have an off night so yeah i think moreno's the right choice. They're.

"Out of sonya while the flyweight champion davis figueredo the challengers barbara victorian brandon marino nate diaz leon edwards will be there dana white. It should be fun but before that we have ourselves an interim title match up and let me just say the stakes are very high more on that later on but let us introduce the participants. I back on the show. He has been victorious here before and this man is absolutely everywhere. Let us alot once. Again to your friend and mine the greats james lynch james. How are you sir. Doing awesome mike. Thanks for having me happy to be back. Great to have you here. And now we introduce the reigning defending interim bt al champion looking to continue his reign of terror. Another win last week against jose. Young's mr jed michou may twenty eighth appearance on the show. How are you sir. I'm doing really well. You know why. Because i don't know if you saw the news there's some more fight circus news out you know we've been talking about the phone booths fight will. It's not phone booth multi. It's phone booth left way so imagine next weekend promo bom couldn't be more excited and while normally we would lead into this more but we are in a time. Crunch we're going get right into this thing. Let us begin with the groaning in the moaning this past sunday floyd mayweather return to the boxing ring for an exhibition. Boat with logan paul. And who would have thunk it and went the full eight rounds and people were not too happy about it. So james let us begin with you. I know. Boxing is in your cup of tea overall. Unless it's a massive massive fight but i'm sure you're at least somewhat paying attention to this craziness. So what was your reaction to this. Fight the attention it received cetera. I don't have an issue with the fight. A lot of people do a lot of people. Wanna say it's bad for boxing. It's bap combat sports to me. It's it's own thing at the end of the day. This is You know it's an exhibition fight. I almost want to call it a bit of a wrestling match in a way. Not in that it was scripted in that its own thing. I don't really consider it. A boxing fight like it would be say jake paul mooney which is actually an official professional boxing fight. Look floyd mayweather. He's there for the cash. Grab logan paul's there for the through the clout. They both got paid. I don't have an issue with it. It had nothing to do with anything going on an or boxing. So all this outcry. Avoid bad for the sport. I mean. good for them. If they're gonna make some money they're getting people interested. This is the two thousand twenty one version of celebrity boxing. I didn't have a problem with it. I didn't watch it live cut. The replay wasn't gonna spend my entire sunday evening. Dedicated this thing. But i did catch it. After the fact it was fine it was a sparring match. Good for them and also one last thing like no one watches leading whether fights apparently. Because everyone's like expecting some crazy early knockout or something. That's not floyd style. He's a defensive fighter. You gotta watch floyd mayweather fights before you start saying that. This was a boring fight. What did you expect. it's mayweather jed. You're all in eventually on jake. Paul ben aspirin. You seem to be all in on jake. Paul tyron woodley were you at all in on logan paul. Getting in there with floyd mayweather not in the slightest still haven't watched it so My opponent year. He's got the one up on me And when i say still haven't watched it. I that will be true forever. I'm never going back and watch his fight another issue with it like by james You make money in your not swindling or hurting people Far be it for me to tell you how to make money so good for them. They there was a lot of interest in this thing. We we talk about all the time on the show. mike This for whatever reason this damn thing passed the test. I got a lot of phone calls and text messages on sunday from people asking. Hey what what's the deal with. This fight wins it happening and honestly shocked the hell out of me. I know that both of them are big names but at least with the been aspirin thing that the been aspirin jake paul fight like that. There was some level of interest there because it was. It was a guy who'd never box before against a guy who balked like twice before the end actually fought anybody in combat. Sports like there was something there that i at least consumer value in There was nothing interesting to me about. Watching floyd mayweather whose objectively horrible human being Just fleas money out of people in boxing against the dude who had never box in lost to like the other guy. Logan paul is a youtube right and he lost so like this was just a huge waste. I never a never understood the appeal. But i guess that's why i'm not in the business because it obviously had some good for logan paul. He outweighed the dude by forty pounds and made it to the final bell by hugging him lot again. I don't actually know that that's what happened. But that is what the internet told me on twitter when it was going on so i assume that the internet doesn't lie because the internet never lies Good for them they They made some money and logan. Paul is probably going to get to box a lot of people now because he survived with the greatest boxer of this generation. Which dog shit. He's let's be super clear. Floyd mayweather juniors not the british boxer of all time for damn shirt. He's not even the best boxers generation so super good boxer not here to save trash but like the sober Given him are way too much into this whole thing was not my cup of tea. Jed would it have been better if floyd starched him. In five rounds like kind of carry them and then just put them away and five like would would this beginning this much attention if the fight went the way like it probably would have had been an actual professional fight. No chance if floyd had decided to open up with offense at any point like real offense and try and put them away. I assume he could have just because he's very talented boxing. Even though he is a defense i fighter. I mean Who who the hell's the duty cheap shot at At knocked insecurities. Yeah go victoria tease. Thank you You know he can crack when he needs to and he's fighting against a guy who's not as good drawer certainly so we probably could have gone finish. Avi like wanted to But based on my understanding from everything. I read after the fact that people talking about it. It seemed like floyd super. Didn't care about this one and that this was just a transparent money. Grab and you know good for him. I guess james the big narrative coming out of this is well. Logan politics when eight rounds of floyd mayweather and he's like the big winner like he should be. There should be standing on a podium and getting a gold medal and a shiny gold belt. And.

"So something happened trusting mom the worst think how crazy that is the walk on those teams up there just walking up there. It gets windy up there the nerve to steal. You gotta have a jab your xenos guys. What what what are they. Call not the segues. But what are those days called a you stand on that you control just just at your feet. It's like a board but arizona up. Yeah records the one that you control right. You see people like leon. I don't know what the this thing is. Just the i've seen some guy do that. Man up there do seriously at least with a little bit of balanced but with that other thing like once fall. 'cause you're gonna kinda going up and back. You're jerking forward and backward dmitri. Johnson just texted me and he says you gotta goes. Yeah so. I think we might. We might have to do that. You can do it again. Disney now or does he mean like just in the future. I thought he meant like in the future like tomorrow or later today or something. Well that's kind of been the shoot as a message and will definitely catch up with him soon but you is in good. Spirits is able to shake off the loss. Fine i mean look. He's the meters. Johnson were allowed. He's one of the greatest ever regardless of what happened at night. You know everything he was just doing was some ending it. But he's had a braley career and has off adrian mariah's for that win. I hope they run. It back. wanted to tell us to christian lee folks. We read crushingly yesterday. And you can catch our interviews in full the one we don't do on junkie radio over at youtube dot com forward slash junkie video. And he doesn't wanna give eddie alvarez shop it alre as as i should give it shot eddie hours like that fight. That went to no contest that he should have just one that because he was on his way to win. Then he took a loss in a decision But i think what you're saying is i'm albina is still you know what i mean like. Okay you know. I didn't go three or four note. But i'm eddie alvarez and this would be good for the division and i'm so against that traditionally i really love number one contenders the fight champions but when i looked at it i was in. The wadi may have a point and this might benefit christian lead to It would help. The division would help the promotion. It would help christian lee as well as it would Lavas m but one championship is getting that division going and they could use something like this. And that kinda hurts for pete bell anthony pettis to not be involved going forward even if he comes back and wins in doesn't qualify. It'll kind of suck because he'll help carry that division and he'll help the motion as well. There there is some if it's to like there. S recall like legacy tight bites. They're not with a win streak. They're not the number one contender a they're pretty damn good still and they've been very very good over the years and sometimes you go. Yeah i need that. To solidify me you know so you can see criminally kind of giving us that opening like a look at the fans. I'm in but i don't think he deserves He's playing at right he didn't in any way looks scared But i think the second might might about adrian Mariah's to nine understand what you're saying. It is one of those weird scenarios at. I could see how it could benefit christian lead. Just because he can be taken even more serious you know when people see that the skin on his wall. It'll help his career as well. So it's one of those weird scenario where it kinda does work. But i understand if they don't go that route hell that might almost be widely on edwards took via the n. Word should not be fighting mate the as he should either be fighting for the title. Rana back with below or someone else. But i think the uc's made it painfully clear that it's going to be covington verses who's mon- and against maslow's out there three-piece soda sure you know. Maybe that could happen. But when you get a chance to fight a as you get a lot you there's a lot of benefit to it regardless of he's not ranked in the division or been active activated or anything else. That might have just been a smart play on where the stabilty eyeballs and then continued his progression. You know a when they can meet the champ. The these fights do happen sometimes. They're a little bit more common than we think. Behind the scenes by shot up nearly from toronto is called overboard. The what i was describing. Oh yeah i think. I said it too but i thought that i might be wrong All right so davis figueredo versus brandon marino. Combing event tomorrow night we talked a little bit about the tory israel at assignment before Dimitrius johnson's fought shock. That goes on with the dettori. You got here on. Snap picks now while you're right if he loses iowans you'll never go against that assign the again wins now. I said like two or three times when it applied the henry so good. Oh when i can't go on against any me miata on it in anaheim california in a friendly way. But i thought i had a case. Okay dimitrios johnson like that's one of the roads t. j. dillashaw. I was kind of starting to cement his spot at one of the top back way to. He's job the.

"One hundred percent I've i have asked people in. I've gotten many different answers for me. Personally it is a figueredo and brin. Wow that is the hipster pick. That is such a hipster peg more than the return of nathan more than izzy versus batori to more now mazing. Let me let me put a caveat on this. I like all three of those a lot like. It's not oftentimes that like the top. Three are fights that that. I'm extremely extremely interested in even if their title fights all three of these fights. Have something very very intriguing for me like all of them a lot but for me. It's figueredo an marino. I just think that a lot of times people think the rematch does not live up to the first and just go in assuming that i have full confidence that this fight is going to be amazing. The style of these two fighters is going to produce either an all time classic again. I don't think there's any I don't think there's any impossibility to the idea that they could replicate the first fight or one of them is gonna get a finnish win and i think that's also exciting also. I am very very excited about that. I i think there's a high chance that we get another classic or finish from the champion or the challenger. And i think both can do it too. That's another thing. I think both items can finish this fight song very excited. It feels like and it's understandable considering fighting the main event. Then who's fighting in that third fight nathan. Leon it feels. Like this is really i mean almost criminally flying under the radar because the first one fight of the year contender if not j. chicken. Jonglei league is the fight of the year. I don't know what that sound was. Did you hear that as well underway. Okay good But i will say the other thing that feels like it's flying under the radar and almost forgotten is the fact that trigger took that fight on three weeks notice. Now i know brennaman did as well. The big differences figuring cuts more weight. didn't get to go home. If you call for greater had to stay home a soothing have to stay in. Vegas did get the home cooking. Didn't get to see his family. Marina went back to tijuana. So i'm curious. How much of that factors into things like now he. Has you know plenty of time to bury it. Six months off between fights all like i don't i think there's a very good chance when you see fights like oh you. The first one is going to play out like the second one. Is this one. I wouldn't be surprised if the second one plays out. Nothing like the first one given the fact that it happened on three weeks notice and he didn't get to go home and and and You know rehydrate and and all that stuff so that to me is somebody that i feel like we're not talking about enough. He also Him and his manager volleyed smell talked. About how sick. He was before like he was extremely ill. I mean you know. It's their account of it. Like you know who knows what the the reality of the situation is but as described by them He was in a rough state. So yeah i think. I think there's a high potential for a for a really good performance out of figueredo but i also think brandon Marino is the type of guy who fights to the competition if he's in there with with an absolute beast. I think he will. Rise to that. And i'm really excited. You really really extended got fight. Okay so let me ask you this And i feel like i know the answer because you sort of alluded to it between the combing and main which fight has a better chance to see a new champion a comment in my opinion. No discredit to marvin vittori. Who i think is being underrated but israel out of sonya and his team to me are not the type to rest on. Their laurels are not the type to look at the first fight. And underestimate marv inventory. They are a team that always prepares properly for an opponent. And i also personally think notes no secret that a thought out of is a great fighter from from the beginning of his career I think he's gotten only better. I think there's a lot of good takeaways as well as some bad as you can take from the report formats against But i think that he will be prepared for this fight. I think he has the tools to beat marvin in the site. And i do not think he will underestimate marvin. I do not think he will take anything away from the first fight. Marvin has said a lot in the media and and I think it's it's something you could easily assume he has said You won the first fight and that is going to. There's things that he is reading from that he's gonna have some success against israel. I don't think that should be the takeaway. I think israel has had just as much opportunity as marvin to improve. And i think because of who he is as a competitor. I think because of the team that he comes from at city kickboxing c. Has improved just as much as marvin harris. And i think that will be the difference in the fight so as much as marvin has improved i think israel has improved just as much And i think you'll be champion for a long time at middleweight. I agree with that. I also think that we're about to find out. Just how big confidences. Because you know is. He's coming off his first loss. I know it was at midway first loss in may. Of course i lost in the afc. Mark on this winning streak. Marvin has convinced himself that he should have won. The first fight is he feels like it wasn't even a question. It was just some judge who got a wrong in that led to the split decision. But it's very rare in the fight game that the champion is coming off a loss. The challenger is on a winning streak. This only happens. When of course the the champion moves up. Removes down wait. He goes back or she goes back to defend their title. This has You know we should ask our friends over at the stats and info it. Hasn't you know like i taught. My headed obviously happened when japan loss to george saint-pierre When they fight. Ufc ninety four and then he came back your fight Kenny florian at at one. One i believe you were there in philadelphia but but like it's a it's a weird thing so we're gonna get a chance to see like how big of a factor confidence can be in these fights. Does it surprise you. Then though i'm looking at.

"Can he do that over. The course seventeen eighteen nineteen twenty minutes if at Defending the take downs effectively as he did last time. Because marvin did take down but is he was able to get back to his in the fed on multiple occasions so very difficult fight but i do believe the confidence will help tori the questions about losing. Your first fight will be on the minds of eta sonya but i believe the champion is good enough competent enough in order to kind of try to move past it in approaches fight in the way that he approached every other championship. Fight these ad. I think that the fascinating thing about this fight to me is is there. A blueprint out now as to how to beat is route sign in you decide you know the size in all. This stuff is vittori big enough strong enough to do what john did against. Because now they're fighting at similar way or are we gonna see you know with the all fired up in doing less media. Leading up to this. Like are reinitiate throwback to quote. The old is either fired a busy busy that we saw gets powell cost. Who goes in there to prove a point that he's levels above all the weights. And do we see a virtuoso performance. I can't wait to see. I'm all in on this main very excited for it. In one more thing area last fight against behove which in the apex small octagon this time out back into the arena. Big optima will make those take a little difficult to really try get from auburn vitor. Even against kevin holland in apex was able to take him down so much easier. Because the space is limited and dc. We remind people about davidson figueredo. Shortlist for that fighting is brand marino fight of the year my fighter of the year. Twenty like we remind everyone about feel like people have forgotten about davis trigger. All i mean. I feel like people have actually forgotten. Just how good. This guy was last year. What he did for the flight originally resurrect. It feels like it was ten years. Now there's resurrected the flyweight division had that classic Moreno ends in dry here. They meet again. I feel like not enough people. And it's understandable is the nathan returning. We'll get that in a second. There's some big names on the car. Daime my bomb. We're not talking enough about this fight. This is an incredible rematch of a fight that blue. Everyone's expectations out the window. And a fight that i think if not for zhang relievers Check is the fight of the year. Twenty twenty. I can't wait for this fight and i'm curious this the other part that we're not talking about remember. Dc figueredo took that fight on like three weeks notice to cut way quickly. Had to come right back all that stuff. And i and i know marino but hey like that was a lot for that guy. He couldn't go home. Remember that like. I'm curious to see if he proves a point that hey that was all well and good on three weeks notice or whatever was two weeks notice on. But i'm the superior fighter here. He stated vegas after he had that beautiful performance against peres marino stayed in trained as he had just won his own whole same night sort of so yet. When when we're talking to mexico yes he went to sorry. You didn't stay went to mexico. He was able to get right. Back is what. I was trying to say into another fight after his performance over roy out it all worked out perfectly right it was stored but they was radel stated vegas was able to behold remember. He got the fifty thousand dollars cash. Everything was coming out of really fast so easy to maybe start buying into the hype drinking the kool aid. Like i'm the man. I'm the man i'm going to do this because i'm the guy. He was shown that night that brandon marino stuff. As i think what happens is though we don't see rematch made this point before area where the rematch generally live up to the first fight if it can even become a fraction of what they did in the apex at night is going to be a fantastic fight. I remember sitting there next to rogan It feels like there are thousands of people in the apex because people are going absolutely insane for eight hundred twenty five pounds light which is not something that you get a lotta lotta times. You'll for as good as dj was a lot of times. The interest in the title fights wasn't as high as we all expected. Thought it should be but they get excited for davison figueredo in this wannabe a crazy fight. I always trust there going to be a crazy fight. He's to earn their because marino is a. He's as tough as they come. But figgy figgy has got big power. Says that he's gonna make everything right. This rematch operational figgy figgy figgy. Can't you see sometimes it was just hypnotized me also hypnotizing me the hair. I don't know if you know this d. c. former Hairstylists former sushi chef. Always have trouble with us ship out the tires yes time. Save point the guy. Here's every time. Do you like you like for his hairstyle and abilities more than anything else keeps saying the same thing come abed. they'll use that again now. What the return of maitha d. As in a bizarre turn of events the third to last fight on this card is for some he said a five round fight nathan d diaz versus Edwards does nathan. Have a chance here. It feels like no one's giving nathan the chance. Dc is that silly. Do you think he has not asking for a prediction. I know you like to sit on the fence. You like to be friends with everyone but does he have a chance against leon edwards. Yes chance is very difficult. This is about as tough fight as did has could've taken nathan the as taken to combat but it's five ron because that's.

"And he has no interest in watching a lear. Latifi fight anyone next. He wanted to throw that out there. Another about how about if we went back down to light heavyweight and delete say went back up to light-heavyweight how about the sabres latifi. There we go. There's a there's a people chopping chopping fit for. After saturday i liked the latifi romanoff fight something that that one's kind of interesting to me. Because i feel like a lot of that would take place on the feet It'd be holding him. Down doesn't hold enrollment on down there. No way i mean. And if he does that'd be impressive in its own right like even if that was like a boring fight of somebody who out wrestled romanov and hold him down for fifteen minutes. That to me would be exciting because i just don't think that's possible alec. I kneel ian He just picked one salikov versus li liang. Let's go to these and they will be done Just a few of these. Our friend jack porter. Let's see anything. New latifi versus alexi olympic is it is a new one Matt ravelli airframe at rivoli. I think he wanted. Santiago navy versus loser of kevin. Leeann sean brady. And he said happy birthday k. Patrick austin is always just throwing out a bunch. He says fiar versus anthony every week. It's nicky as sal conferences. Nick d. as you can't an nick diaz from any show Montana versus roxette boza versus ben rothwell bows overspend rocker. Okay i saw. I saw latifi brisk rothwell so okay. Yeah that'd be a little more. I think that'd be mortar. Rothwells liking thank you would wanna fight buzzer Patrick also see positive versus magni da and biza versus francisco go aldo ways up although yet. Yeah okay let's see. Is there anything new here Mason jones versus the loser of austin hubbard versus vince patel. I thought i was the loser. I thought about winner. I i would have given the winter either. One of those two. I think would be fine and christian lee also suggests that man and fiero fights tracy cortes. Yeah i could see it. I could see cortez getting getting If my if my My amazing aldridge. Cortez match never happens. I could see her getting either dellarosa or or feudal and last but certainly not least our good friend weekly contributor. John george said good to be back good to hear the best damn. mma podcast on the weekends sing it. He said goodwin for ponzi and he only suggested one matchup for one while harris said if while harris gets another chance in the afc him verses. Jared bandera. I don't think that's easier fight as people think it would be. No i don't think so. Either a slug fest waiting to happen and he would have to win that one. Or he's when we were talking about on the on the post by show but like all we want to get a winnable fight. The bandera popped into my head just because he has experience and a lot lower named and walt harris. But then i was thinking about vendors actual fleiss. And i'm like that's not that's like a h- a more high risk low reward walt harris. That's not the feel good match match. That i think i think some listeners might think it is. Yeah i i think it's a tough fight. Jared some monster dude. I knew we haven't even seen his wrestling in the afc at not at all and he's a very good wrestler. That's what i'm saying. He's he can grapple to and that's not we want while terrorist fighting right now. So now but jared van zyl just crazy enough because even like what. I interviewed him after his last minute goes. My plan was to take was take this down and just down and just because that worked out. Well so we'll see we'll see what happens there He also wants to know Which main card fight were looking forward to the most next week and this is the easiest question could ask me. It is the flyweight title. Fight between davis and figure it out and brandon. Marino the rematch. That is the fight. I'm looking forward to the most next week. Yeah it has to be kind of enjoy. Edwards deflating the nate diaz hype. That's also gonna be fun. But i'm kidding i'm i do think ed's gonna win that fight i shouldn't i shouldn't say so flippant about but i'm happy for edwards. Got that fight. I think it's very winnable and it's a high profile fight so good for him Other than that. I mean the maya fight could be his last fight right. I think it's supposed to me. So this is this segues sorry. Is that the as that the cnn. Let's see an yes. Okay so this sort of ways into mind because positive positive you some of your Your business well versus miami. Muhammad winner was pretty popular pretty popular pick. But again if maya wins i don't i think he just goes out on top. I think just like i leave the gloves and thank you. Thank you all for the fight. And i'm going to go and we will chill now. Maybe maybe that's why i'm willing. I'm liam willing to leave my in for this week. Just because we don't know like even says i'm done doesn't mean he's done so who knows for. Now he stays in the pool he could go with wall street toward belfour and be like. Hey dana white. I'm not going anywhere. Give him my eight eight fight contract. Dana pay up. I wanna buy deal. I just submitted this guy in forty five seconds gave my eight fight. The are very very classic damian maya type post-flight speech So yeah you're right. It is possible mohammed definitely if mohammed beats puns. And that's a very very logical matchup and i'd to see muhammad call for it. Frankly i don't think he would. I think again. If you beat by a there'd be some kind of nice speech honoring honoring my but i would hope at some point. He would also call upon view. I think that makes so much sense for him. Right now So that was one of the popular picks. The others won't read all these all. These consensus picks but Yeah rosen stroup versus Volkov if he beats gone. Or i guess we'll kind of loses. I wanted to play on. Somebody just said khan volkov winner loser but you're right. I just don't see them doing the matchup again so soon it wasn't controversial. It wasn't particularly entertaining diverse blades. That was the most popular bird matchup for sure though he was also thrown into the volkhov winner. Loser mix ponzi was lawler. Yes the leads. Eight versus deke. Overbooking i think was the most popular. One thing i got. People are logical our listeners. Yourself logical. They're so smart and then one. Did you mention luis pena at all in your in your dmc list. I don i got. I got at least three people asking for claudio versus Luis pena. I don't know there's some beat between these two guys. I'm not aware of because Want to see it but l. celica congress. Randy brown Rodriguez for jordan right. Which i think would be fun matchup as well. Yeah so senseless listener picks. I see you guys will the these could be..

Woodley would have been another one good to bring back that show But we're always going to want to tune in to see what happens because there's unfinished business. But the longer we wait the less it really means kinda like floyd manny little bit and look out for that interview on our youtube page. If you wanna the whole thing with mike bond. Who was doing a tour of south florida. Sanford emma american top team anime masters to be begins down there by a few other spots as well go to youtube dot com slash anime junkie video. The all extended press conferences donkey. Radio highlights and interviews that are done by all of our staff youtube on fourth flash may just video. It gets pretty tenths at time. Covington is all in on. Even somebody i mean slings. My left and right i would prefer would stick to the fighter. Themselves models models that is month was But he makes it personal. And i'm like covington lau all still just throwing a lot of personal shade out there. I think he's just at these in a moment. He's in it for the moment. I don't know what he's thinking long term. But you and. I have been around in different instances and He can be a completely different guy. the type of guy where you look at them and go that guy. There's no way he would be capable of saying some of things that you see him say is just in the moment amazon. Trying to give an excuse to say that it's okay. But i think he just figured out. This is what i'm gonna do. If i'm gonna do it all in and you just shove this gypsum in all in and we'll see what comes out of it but i'll tell you what we keep winning bite's gonna matter which say you know we're gonna wanna tune in we'll see you know those mom fight with a little bit of a wakeup call. But at the end of the day mons a beast and kobi's given him the best fight he's had date so even in his loss he kinda looked good. So we'll see what happens here but was a time period where dana. I couldn't wait for him being gone or lose. And now i think you start to get a little hip to. We might have some them. I also noticed. Another thing is deliveries a lot smoother. As he's been a pretty good trash talker but he never read the elite with like the mcgregor's in and some of the others that is really trip up over their words. It's always a smooth. Delivery has always had a pretty good smacktalk but he'll sometimes he gets to appoint were every answers a witty line and it doesn't have to be with point with mike bond and he was slowing so good on him. You know good on him. We need more of those guys I don't know any news about mom versus covington. But i hope that that's one of the fights against gay because of you look out into. The future of champions have been active. We got two title fights coming up with marvin vittoria. In israel out of sonya davis figuring versus brandon marino. Amanda nunez is going to defend about against julianna pena conor mcgregor's Sorry sunday what am i thinking We just had the the coronation of lightweight tile with charles oliveira michael chandler. But we know in. God is defend against somebody are either jones lewis at this point lonzo shares on the books. So i just hoping we see coming. I don't even care if they go. November new york vegas december. Whatever not that. I personally know that those official dates with that was the pattern. The last year's i wouldn't mind that did have a quick turnaround.
"brandon marino" Discussed on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani
"I missed it i missed. I missed the whole episode. There's other parts of the question. You guys can probably wanna jump on. What's your what are you. What what what's your case case. He doesn't watch the ultimate fighter. I what's your season ak on my favorite. What's your most memorable not including a ninety here up pretty good answer. I like i'm filing policies ten weights of course with thing. Most people would be their number to enter elsa a sick parliament that loves season six widely regarded as the worst season or at least one of the worst seasons. Now's the sarah hughes metzer an accuracy. The two seasons were When they debuted their fifteen The fifteen hours when. I'm carla carla That's that's one of the few seasons. I wanna watch the. I've watched the quality of the fighters in the house. Or that's tough. I think angela hill number sixteen to like most Brandon marino's number sixteen or whatever quality those the fighters and that house was just a d. best. I don't remember who the coaches were that year with the coaches Gilbert and at yeah even important. That's one of the few years where the coaches were not important at all. It was actually about the the people in the actual contestants to fighters and the my second paper season was Because the coaching matchup beef and equality the fighters in there were very good was Being and mayhem. That was a great feeling. That's not as a very underrated season because that was the debut of the forty five and thirty five dollars. And those mayhem in building. John fighters is being in mayhem. Were fantastic coaches. Get antastic like there's a lot of fighters that you'd like. John jones was a bad coach. But it's like if michael was a coach. It's just hard to teach when you're just naturally good at something. I think teases a really good coach. Unlike the earlier season it was Was rather than like ken. shamrock who member. He had left the lions dan. He was like the best. Jim north terrible coach terrible terrible so yeah translates to show what it is what it is. don't offer watch but i the miller. The miller season is a perfect example of what them doing something different because that was say jesus had one. Ufc fight back back back back back in the day by gsp right. I think the wonderful yeah. And then when another organizations bully beatdown built up his own kind of almost like almost across over an stars post at running dream as he did as run and strikeforce. The bra all that stuff. yeah. I love that. They brought him in. Because this is what. I wished they would focus on bringing coaches. Who will be good coaches and good tv personalities. As opposed suggests we have two guys who are set to fight. Let's put like what we're doing with our take on you guys who i tell you could not care less about being on the show And just because they have a fight coming up said oh can we can extra build by having the amount of reality show for two months which is insane. No i'd much rather they go with someone like bringing a chasing miller may maybe not now. But i'm saying that kind of personality who's like he's not. He's not a big of see name because what he knows how to be on tv he knows how to create compelling television. Bring back shell sewn and put matt serra back on tv. I'd love these guys as coaches. But we don't have to worry about that. So that's one thing again i up. They should but so pick someone outside. The us debut via the ultimate fighter as coach. Kenny harrison john. Whatever like that would be very interesting to because they're both att fighters. So you try to figure out what goes on that. I'll go with the mvp. I think mvp mvp. Yeah picks trump against him name. James gallagher would be a very interesting one. Because he's you know he's long personality and he's at krause's jim so that's like great coaching staff and he's able to be so mad so mad house he thousand three hundred that he was at You have see in houston because You had a bunch of his teammates fighting so he was always around with krause. And i think he he so him and cross had to like answer with the like the public to watch the ceremonial wyans. And i think cross went. This is what i saw. I like my perfume. James crowds talking to john. Like how do i get in. He goes. I'm sure they could get you in. They definitely won't let him in. And it was like james gal who was like they could have just sneaked in through the side with james grouse. Because you know delatour fighter. But he was around. Sam go casey but back to this question this whole the the season one season one is it. Is it actually really good. Oh yeah or is it. Just like the oregon over innis about. It's it's super entertaining because everything's new and that just because everything was new now even now they also have. They had weird like contests games install so good they had no somehow these contests were like really physically like exit like they were really physically. Dangerous somehow ever got injured on this. I do not know how but failed. Ultimate fighter one. If you lost you left the house saddam hussein. Instead of 'cause people forget people forget. Those guys didn't even know that they were going to fight on the show they all thought. Oh we're going to fight on. The fanatic is just two guys are gonna make it to the finale and fight for contract. It wasn't until like a few episodes in where you guys well. We've done some reality show contest and now you guys could pick someone to guys to find what what we're funding the house. It even legal of a bunch of people weren't even like on weight like some like some fighters they got voted off. Didn't even fight. They just got voted off and they just without ever fighting so season. Sco funny to watch because this tomfoolery happening way so so by the end of the season it was just two people living in a big house back. It wasn't just two people in three is when they started to fighters around which is the one. Maybe we should keep them around to help train. Its season two. Was that famous montage of like the try workout to get in the house because remember. They had to like what they were all in the house they had to kick. We'll start of having them like show their jujitsu in grappling..
