"He had just very quickly. And every fight you look very intelligent fighter. IQ is very high. And the thing about his so versatile, in the way he can move, one of the most troubling things that fighter can be good, but if you get frustrated with not being able to read your opponent and you get frustrated, that can throw your entire game off. That's what happens to people like Max Holloway, Brian Ortega, people Chad Mendes, people like this, they just get completely thrown off because they don't know how to attack, right? And my fear is that if you're one dimensional final, in some ways, like Microsoft, he has one game plan, right? If you can't do that and he's frustrating you, what do you go to? Yeah. I'm just imagining how much they actually because as time goes on, I'm wondering how much research they do in the whole of these people's games, right? And I'm pretty sure, yeah, and I'm pretty sure volkanovski team is just very much capitalizing on number one because he keeps saying that bouncing it back. But how many holes are actually trying to look for in Islam's thing, but and how many times can you keep it bringing back up, right? I mean, remember, when you obviously, when you're doing training, these guys are not going a 100% to keep you down, right? They don't want to hurt you. So when he's unhappy, it's a whole different type of collaborate, right? It's an aggressive, they're punching you. All that takes an effect, right? You're breathing a different adrenaline. I mean, everything's different in the ground. So I think I'll come out with a window. Well, bottom line, what's the prediction? 5th round, I think decision. 5th round third decision. I think market share through the room, bro. Around third round. Exhibition? I don't know. I just think that's tough. I got Microsoft second round submission. Okay. What about you? I don't want to face me. Oh, okay. You just fight himself. Okay, come on. Great crap. Sitting in a cage watching other dudes fight. Yeah. Too bad. At a 145 pounds at that. Strike me all you want. I don't care what you got. One 45, I'll take you any day. Who's watching the last of us? What's he gonna do? Bro, you got a dangerous with watching the new show.

I don't know. We get tweets, though, at beating the book. This is from rob wort. He said, hey Gil was listening to PGA on serious yesterday when Willie Z hit that shot that bounced on the bricks 5 or 6 times, not sure who the announcer was, but he described it as plinko, made me smile and think the announcer might be a closet. A numbers game fan. Maybe so, felt very plinko ish. That was an act of God that that ball did not go in the water. Because it bounced on, it bounced on the brick on the brick again, and then back down. It didn't land on any grass. If you tried to do that 10,000 more times, you could not.

"You know, as long as guys aren't abusing it, which I think everybody stays up pretty good with it. Now, in celebrity boxing news, Lamar Odom is fighting the fake Drake. He's the guy. He's the guy that actually dresses up like Drake, and he goes to club saying he's drank. They call him Drake. Because he's great. Who do you think wins this fight? The fake Drake or Lamar Odom. I'm gonna go with Lamar Odom. Yeah. Have you ever trained with him? No, not another chair would have never met him. But that's funny that he's boxing. Everybody wants to be a fighter nowadays. Well, Lamar's two and O, he beat Aaron Carter and then he did. And then he beat one of J.Lo's first husbands. So he's two and zero. And now he's fighting the fake trade. So bad. That's funny. The nsync way, right? And then that was the brother of the guy in the Backstreet Boys. But he's a big man. Your boy band's right. Yeah, but he didn't even make the cut. He's the brother of the boy. Yeah, well, I mean, Michael's more of a B two K guy. Now, Brian Ortega versus Rodriguez this week, who do you think wins? I'm excited about that. I think Ortega wins. He seems like he only has issue with guys that are champions. Yeah. Yeah. He's beating everybody else. So, you know, I see him winning that submission of course I'm leaning towards that at some point in the fight. Now, when I saw you, you were on crutches. You had both knees amputated or something. Like, you were completely fucked up. And he's like, don't tell anyone. I had to take a picture from the waist up because he didn't want anyone knowing that his legs were he was in a wheelchair. How did you recover from that? What was wrong with you? That was when I was getting ankle surgery and knee surgery. And the, I was going through all that recovery phase. You know that's what you saw me leading up into all these fights. That's why I wanted a quick turnaround. That's what I wanted to get back to fight. And that's why this decision lost things so bad because I had such a long layoff I took two time to finally get healthy and I felt like I was really getting back in a groove and you know you won that fight. Shouldn't stand bro honestly as a big brother to you, okay? 'cause I've been around this game for a while. You won that fight, okay? No one gives a fuck about the win losses anymore. Everyone's gonna remember you won that fight. Plus you have a lot you have a lot of losses. So what's one more for real? Honestly. One more is still sucks. I don't even like seeing it. Especially one that I do that I knew I won. But yeah, nobody thinks that. It was white privilege, bro they gave it to the guy. Oh, man. It was.

"At all? That's not my life. I think it's everything outside the ring that my life destroyed a couple of times, but no, I think that's really overrated, man. I mean, I think partying and stuff does. I'll just tell you, I can guarantee you who's going to win this fight because the only two times I ever bet on Ortega. I saw her take a fight live against clay guida before he was even known. And I was like, that dude's a future champion. I just sometimes you see a guy you just know they've got. You know what I mean? I was like, yeah, yeah. So I bet on him, I think against Holloway, of course, he gets almost murdered in that fight. So I lose a ton of money on that fight. Then if there's other one he lost, I've been talking nasty I bet on him. Lost a fortune on that one, I'm sure he was just too big for a Vulcan house to too tall. So he loses that one. So on this one, by my bedding logic, I would bet on yair, 'cause I'd be like, I'm never betting on him again after he cost me that kind of money, two fights in a row, which means he would win. Now the question is, who will I actually put the money on if I bet because that will guarantee a win for the other guy? Well, I think it's a lock now because when you and I both go for the same guy. Oh, he's definitely going to lose. Yeah, for sure. Yeah. So I think I will win, which I'm almost sure which means that or take a little more or take us a lock. Yep. You heard it here first, folks. You got the two biggest fucking idiots in gambling. Betting on the trail to give us his prediction if he goes a lot of the trifecta of Chael also says dude, you can make a living Betty to get the show something's picked. He's been wrong like something like 60 times a row. It's the craziest thing ever. I want yer to win because I just like him better. I just like him as a firefighter. Brian's having it too good with that Cortez. He's got what happened. I was like, he already won. Exactly. He's enjoying life way too much already. He's got a good idea. What happened was I was walking to an event. And I saw Brian Ortega. And I go, oh, shit, this burner Tiger guy. But like to myself, I look, and I always love it to somebody. And then the guy goes, yo, and like kind of snuffed me a little bit. Because I almost walked into him, and then I take his started laughing. And they like high 5. All right, then in high 5. But I felt like that one. I love that you had to sell the point at the end when you realized you had nothing. And then they

"With that, teddy, thanks for doing this. It's great to see you as always, and I'm looking forward to seeing you next week. Me too, and that cause you just mentioned unbelievable. Yeah. Really? I mean, Vulcan outskirts not human. We know that, right? I was trying to describe to someone the other day. He's willing to become a zombie. He's willing to die and become a zombie. He proved that. He didn't talk about it. He showed it. He showed it when he was in that triangle, whatever the call. Guillotine. Guillotine. Guillotine. I'm fucking in bucking and jiving and shucking. And he said he told us on the show, again, if you haven't seen the interview, it's worth a listen. He said the flight started to flicker. All he could think was, oh my God, I'm gonna lose my title and one last ditch effort in this weird like hip bucking. He was like, I just went through a mental checklist of all the moves I knew how to get out of this and there were only a couple and I just started bucking wildly and that's what it looks like. He started thrust in his hips and next thing you know, it looked like he was having a convulsion. And then his reward for getting out of that mountain guillotine. Oh, right into Brian Ortega's signature triangle choke, which is why they call him T city. And he got out of that too. And you could see, you could see Ortega was almost like, I can't get them with that just beat me up until it's over. If I can't get those jokes at this stage, it's over. Those are my colleagues. And on a card with that, she may have who you mentioned. I mean, the next Khabib may be, I don't know. Whatever. But I mean, with that mentality with that ability on the mat and just and he's become an other dimensions to him too. That guy every time I want to see him because I want to see can he maintain his level of not excellence, but just beyond excellence like perfect, like he looks like one of those guys like Khabib became that you just can't beat. You know, and we always say everyone could be beat, you know? But he looks like the guy that really makes you say some guys, maybe they can. And then of course John, who I think is just an unbelievable striker. I mean, just a really, really, he could be a professional box. It's a car. Yep. Who will be down?

"Joined as always by the voice of MMA, the great teddy Atlas, teddy how you feeling. You know what? I could be I could have like a fever, I could have broken bones. I could be like on a stretch on my way to the ER. And I feel pretty damn good after that win last night. That was a good one. Congratulations to the Raiders, raider nation. It's like a fight that gets all beat up, but he wins. You know what, he don't feel a damn thing. He don't feel damn thing the next day. And I'm, you know, thank God my family's feel better. Get an over COVID and everything. And we've been over doing good and, you know, I always have my little situation with my back, but and I know you are having a low situation. You're so stubborn. You went and running when it's like 20° out. And you forget about something called black ice. And you know, you can't do that no more. You gotta stop. That's what the treadmills for. The drag nose for when there's black eyes, you go on a treadmill. You go on the federal, you go inside, you say it? Well, the treadmill, I use it today. I know you're a maniac. And you got him wrong, and you've got what my first thought when I got up when I finally peeled myself off the ground for the third time in the last week, I thought, oh my God, thank God I didn't break my hip. Can you imagine if I had to come on here and say, hey guys, I broke my hip. Can you imagine the old man jokes I'd hear for the rest of my life? And I fell down so hard, I was like, oh, thank God I didn't break my hip. No, don't listen. Thank God you're okay. Please choose the treadmill when it's cold like that or something. Seriously. We don't want something of a beautiful family. You know, but yeah, I feel good because with baby, you know, that saying that the great out Davis, the great laid out Davis said was, I mean, you talk about being on a button just find a way to win. Find a way to win in life. And in the football and in baseball and in boxing, find a way. Find a way. Sometimes it doesn't come down to strategy exes and all those talent anymore. Speed, everybody's dead tired. It comes down find the way. Find a way. Something inside you find a way. You refuse to lose. Find a way. And the rate is, you know, for all the weaknesses, everyone's got weaknesses, but you know for all the things that they obviously could be stronger in positions and this and that, they found the way. There's one thing that you can't put in there. That's hot. And they showed someone's heart, so much grit, really. Congratulations to all of them. Congratulations on my son teddy. I'm so happy for him. I'm so happy for all of them. They work so damn hard. Obviously everyone works hard, but these guys have a lot of things happen during the season. A lot of crazy things a lot of tragic things have been doing this season and you know what? How do you get in this position? How? Find a way. Will, you know, will we be skilled? You know, quite often, like, the great customer model to quote him or paraphrases quote to me was teddy will always beat skill. Unless one man goes so far superior that the other man's world never gets tested. Same thing in life, same thing in no team, whatever. And you know, when you get in the NFL, it's pretty comparable to talents out there. You know, some teams have more, no doubt about it. But it's fairly comparable. And then it comes down to execution and obviously technique teaching culture that's all part of it, but not only places will. And that was a great exhibition of that for people that maybe things are going bad in their life. And they've had some bad things. I mean, you had so many terrible things with this team. And what happens, they just kept banging away, banging away, not giving in, you know, it's never over. You know, you'll be better at that same it's not over towards over. You know what that really is defined for me what that means. It's not over to you say it's over. That's right. That's what it says to me. It's not over to you, say it's over. I don't give a think about this one says that one says, you know, even with the statistics might say sometimes, it ain't all over to you say it's over. And we don't say it's over. Well, you always got a shot. You know what? You know what that makes me think of teddy Alex Vulcan offski when Brian Ortega had him in that guillotine, a mounted guillotine, and I was like, oh, it's over. And even Alex was like, yeah, I can see the slight start the flicker, but he kept trying kept trying and refused to believe it was over and it wasn't. That's amazing. I mean, that's it. That's the one thing that machinery doesn't have that the genius of human life. Really, the miracle of human life. You know, whether you believe in God whether you believe in nature whether whatever you believe in. But the miracle and magic.

"And i feel like if he mixes it up and keeps you know makes volkogonov gas about what's coming at him he's going to go for the take on. Is he gonna work from the clench. Is he going to you. Know easy. Going to just strike on the author. I think he's gotta keep talking ski guessing because if he just turns into a striking fight with just a kickboxing fight. Could brian ortega win. Sure he's got that kind of ability. We saw his last night with the korean zombie. But i think you're taking a lot more chance in that kind of a fight. I think if he goes out there and maybe even pulls guard just tries to mix things up and make vulcan hausky. guess it. what's coming with him. I think he's got a better chance. But i still lean towards vulcan ski to win. I think that even though he had to really close fights with max holloway the second one more than the first one. You beat max holloway. You're a damn good fighter. Invoke off ski is a beasts. He's a monster again. I think it's gonna take a special kind of guy to beat him but if ortega's going to get the job done i believe he's gotta mix it up. He cannot be one dimensional in this fight. I agree with you in the sense that brian ortega needs to mix it up and i think i do believe we saw that in his last fight like you said it gets crean zombie. He is growing. I see his striking as i studied film for him. Ics striking getting better and better except one great thing about a striking is. He's never been scared. He's always been gained. He's always down. Stan the pocket and throw i mean being down against guido pushing forward putting his chain endanger landing that knee knocking them out. The kid has the right mentality and now he's getting better and better than his striking. I believe he's been working a lot of noise with kevin ross. Who's a really good way. Tie american tie fighter as well. I think that showed in his last fight against the korean zombie. What i do love switching from conventional to south pole. I feel i can stance has changed a little bit too. Is a little bit wider longer. And using his rate sticking his jab out. You know luring people in you know. I think standing southall will take that inside. Kick that vulcan. He loves to do against the conventional fighter. He loves to really measure up with that insight. Tick and then fire back with hands us. That insight kick to measures guys up to close at distance. If you stand south ball you still have a inside kick but that is to me. The kickers advantage ryan. If i'm brian ortega i'm standing southpaw. I'm i'm tapping on what my job. I'm landing big kicks from the outside. I'm landing teeth on landing by this guy. Tries to close the distance and i'm doing straights followed by uppercut to make sure i can Neutralizes level changes. And i am threatening the take down. I think he could get it done on his feet th and take downs on there as well. I'm leaning towards. Brian ortega winning this fight. In my opinion. It's a really compelling match and i think that it all i think a lot of depends on how are you. It's weird to say this. I think it depends on how. Brian ortega approaches. If he approaches it the right way i agree. He can absolutely get the job done. And we'll be talking about an new the end of the night But again i think it depends on how you approach if he just goes out their hands walking out skating. That's a dangerous game to play Because walkin oscar does pack a big punch and you know we know tough that guy so yeah this is a really. This is a really close right. I'm leaning towards volkan. Obviously you got ortega. We'll see which one of us is right after. Ufc two over. Gil before i let you go. You're always a very busy guy at the scrap. Packer always coaching.

"You know in fact. I think he dropped you a couple of times in that last fight you know so. It's hard to say you won the fight. Yeah you want the scorecards. According to these reference to these officials who may have got it wrong right. That doesn't sit while with everybody and they have a good. They have a good debate. You know we. We agree on that right there But he does i in order to break through and get the the respect he deserves. He does need to make a statement but he doesn't. In my opinion. I think is important for him more important for him to win right. This is a guy you don't want to rush on and make a mistake because you feel pressured to make a statement right so yes you know you want your stock to go up. You want to be the entertaining fighter. Yes you want more money but this is a fight where you don't make any mistakes right. You don't make any mistakes. Even max. Holloway was a little bit conservative. Against frankie agar. Because he didn't wanna get taken down right he had to make sure he just picked them apart enough. I think he can let go more. But why risk take down. So i think we may see vulcanized. Who's a little passive who just relies on his striking and punches and keeping a close he finds. That's almost as style. But i think it might be the right approach for this fight and and against brian ortega guy who can just snag your neck a guy who can just turn it around with the grappling. You know i. I don't know if it's this is the one where you have to really make that statement to make everyone happy before you really lock into. W i think brian ortega's showed so much improvement in a striking the last time but then again not that he needs my advice but i feel like i think brian's biggest chance to win this fight as mixing things up a little bit..

"Oh you're on draw. She's gonna come in with their big hook. She's going to storm her and energy. She's gonna get dirty in that clinton and it's not going to be so easy to grow to slam rose. This is a this is the lady who's who's done so much great damage to a lot of people. This is gonna be tough one for valentine and she just made it. Look easy you know. So it's it is hard. It is hard as much as we respect. Learn murphy and you know but but that's that's the kind of stuff that fuels fighters right that jennifer. Maya was talking about her this way as well. Oh man i dunno. She's gonna have any sort of chance but she's the one who's done the best against her lately now. I don't know she did great against her and she might have went around or to. I'm not too sure. Jennifer maya but she came in there ready knowing that she's the underdog you know no pressure and laura murphy needs to have one of those buster douglas rocky moment right where you know. Everything's against her. Everyone is against their. She used that. If fire and and again i think you know fighting is ninety percent mental. Sometimes you know and and the will to want it and the will to win. And that's what she needs to really lean on and she really needs to try to bring that out of her into into listen to our conversation right now and just be excited to prove us wrong right you know and just you know. That's what she needs to do. And these things happen in them and may now and that's the beauty of our sport in every so often the person on top they lose it just it always happens. Actually it just happens. No you're absolutely right. You're absolutely right And then of course we got the main event featherweight title on the line. Alexander vulcan. Hausky taking on brian ortega. This is such an intriguing fight. Gill because you know coming into this. You know when when. Brian taylor lost max holloway. I thought okay. We're going to have to wait to see how. Brian can improve and grow from this and a few fights and he comes back in his next fight against the korean zombie and he looks totally. Reinvented as striking with so much better. He looked. I mean he just looks like a brand. New fighter was ridiculous. I was like shocked at how great he looked coming off of that loss which was pretty one sided. Fight with max holloway. And you look at alexander. Volkan oscar. This poor guy. He cannot seem to get the respect he deserves. I understand you beat a very popular fighter. Mac holly the first fight absolutely believe alexander one f. I gotta be honest. I scored her from exxon away And again it was a very close fight. But but this guys kind of living in the shadow of max holloway. Even though he's beaten twice you can argue whether or not. He beat him the second time. But max was such a popular such a favorite champion. This poor guy just doesn't seem to get the respect. He deserves it. You feel like he's gotta go out. In my opinion he's got to go out and really put it on. Brian ortega he cannot let this be a forty eight forty seven. He cannot let this be a split decision. I think alexander bulkin ski to define himself as federal way champion and kind of get the respect. He deserves. He's got to go out there and really take this fight to brian teigen. He's really got a win. This with in my opinion. that's so interesting. How you put it that way. Champion needs to take it to the challenger right where the challenge are usually needs to go out there and make a statement and take it from the champ but you are correct you know alexander broken out. He did win. The scorecard. Against max holloway right. He won the scorecards. But it's when you use the word beat everyone doesn't want to accept that now beat him up. You know in fact. I think he dropped you a couple of times in that last fight you know so. It's hard to say you won the fight. Yeah you want the scorecards. According to these reference to these officials who may have got it wrong right. That doesn't sit while with everybody and they have a good. They have a good debate. You know we. We agree on that right there But he does i in order to break through and get the the respect he deserves. He does need to make a statement but he doesn't. In my opinion.

I don't know if it's this is the one where you have to really make that statement to make everyone happy before you really lock into. W i think brian ortega's showed so much improvement in a striking but then again not that he needs my advice but i feel like i think brian's biggest chance to win this fight as mixing things up a little bit make vulcan ski. Think about the takedown. Make him worry about the grappling. Because ortega is such a phenomenal graph. Were ridiculous. Submissions world-class jujitsu. We know that about him..

"Enough tko dude i. It's yeah it's you know. Lay kicks picking him apart. You know just you know being able to just stay on the outside and just outworked. Brian is what i think is gonna end up happening. So i'm looking at mybookie right now. I had my bookie has volkan oscar as a minus one sixty favorite so here. He is a slight favorite. Brian ortega plus one thirty underdog and that's typical across the board. He looked at some of the other sites in there around the same. So everyone's in agreeance with this. You know Brian coming off of a victory of korean zombie. But that was. When was that like back in twenty twenty twenty dollars tober of last year. Almost a year ago Before that he had a bad loss to max or if you remember that fight back in december of two thousand eighteen. But max holloway tuned his ass up dude max with even coaching him in the middle of a fight saying let one point like no no. Don't do that do this. No just fucking should not really talking shit but like actually coaching him like dude. Don't be doing that so like a big brother talking to a little brother you know and yeah you can. I heard someone say. I think he was kenny. Florian on their podcast he mentioned. You can improve your striking quickly over time if you add if you try at it you know what i mean but versus like you're grappling. You know what. I mean like someone could be a high level grappler and you might not ever be able to catch up to them. You can try and try and try. But you're not you know like the zeno and curtis blades fight. No matter how much wrestling zeno puts in. He's never going to be able to catch up to curtis blades because he's just got to know all the tricks you know right but striking you can you can grow by leaps and bounds and and and brain showed.

Let's call this the last match and will debut this week because we had a couple of fighters who retired this week. Who if they stick to their retirement. This is maybe the last time we ever see them in. Mma everyone does it. Benefit is Carlos condit so I think condit's name has popped up more on our show than vitas. I don't know i don't recall. Benefit popping up as often in conduct definitely someone. We saw a lot of potential match. It a lot of people wanna see you know running back with robbie lawler bacteria as a lot of legends matches for him so but guy. There are officially. I think shutting the door and then for mass speaking purposes. I know. I don't think anyone missed this news so Happy trails happy trails to to the most entertaining high level. Almost universally liked fighters. I don't know anyone really who's interviewed them or worked with them That has like a poor word to say about them so That's this is the last match for these guys until you know. Hopefully hopefully they're on to better things and not Not during alkyl boxing. We're fight circus. That's yes Well said i approve of said segments And there's a couple of other names we should probably throw in there as well luke. Sanders announced retirement so happy trails to him. Look sanders you'll see better. And he's he he. He had us. He put his time in there. He put his time in in their yup and a big shot to another former. Ufc veteran and ended his career a two division. Cbs champion map set announces retirement. I did not know that. Yes after his inverted triangle. Arm bar slick. Asa mission win over ryan delacruz at sixty four. He announced his retirement. Right after the. Drop the gloves and everything. I need to do so good on that beset. Napa set one of the first people in the sport to give me an opportunity to interview him what he was bell tower at the time he was just rolling through and this is a guy who missed so many years just kept winning fights and finishing fights. Everyone's wondering one. Is this guy going to get his shot. One guy going to get a shot goes on the contender series gets finished by kurt. Hollow another guy who were like. When's he gonna get his chance to get back to the ufc there and then beset gets a shot at ufc. Boston goes oh into a couple of really competitive fights and goes on ends career the way that he wanted to and then carlos condit i mean good lord aka how we throw win certain fighters you see him and you just like that dude is about that life when i saw carlos condit fight for wbz. The first time. I was like that dude is about that life and i was immediately host young so yeah i didn't know going out on top that's always great to hear. And and for all these guys. Karl condit joseph benefit as luke sanders and say. Look if we see them fight against someday great. We welcome them with open arms but Hopefully these are. Mma retirements that stick and these guys are able to move onto the next stage their lives with with their health. Mostly intact and Any news we hear them. The future is is nothing but good news about their. You know they're they're a business and personal endeavors while said so. You have see vegas thirty seven in the books at least from a matchmaking perspective. Join us next week because we got a big show. Everybody we've got a big show in fact which is something. I didn't even know until brennan fitzgerald mentioned it on the card on saturday. We're going to be here for the next nine weeks. Whoo last night or saturday night was the first of ten consecutive saturdays for the sea. So we're not going to be taking a break anytime soon. So stick with us. Get excited because next week. The of is back on pay per view. Ufc two sixty six exciting card. Three five round fights. two title fights headlined by alexander. Volkov ski bursts. Brian ortega balancing shevchenko defends. Her flyweight title. Against lauren murphy. And a lot of people just feel like bouncing to go in there and just steamroller and murphy i. Lauren is a maga. she's alive dog. But i think she i think she gives valentina a little bit of a tougher fight than people think. She's just a she likes to make fights dirty and grimy. i think that's i think valentine will win. I'm not gonna go crazy. But i feel like lauren is going to be more competitive than people think. Of course the rematch. Seventeen years in the making robbie lawler versus nick diaz five rounds non-title only the second time this has happened in ufc history. We've got curtis blades versus giardina roseanne. Strike just on. Drudge versus cynthia. Caviar huge pfeiffer. Cynthia cavallo i. If she wins she could get a title shot despite coming off of a loss to kaitlin keagan in her previous fight featured prelims marl. Mariah's versus douala's willie holy cow. That is a crazy fight. Hopefully we get dan. Hooker versus nasdaq hawks. Shamila brahima versus chris. Dacas roxanne modifier tyler santos men and fiero versus myra bueno silva we'll see the you've debut of diaz protege nick maximov taking on karl rogerson euros taken on jalen turner matthew symbols burger versus martin.

Nice early prelims. Yes so we have a nice long night ahead of us and we're excited for it. I'm i'm very excited for this card. Aka this is. You've said this is the year of okinawa. This is the year that he gets everybody's radar speaking of disrespect. It off ski. Might be the most underrated fighter in the sport right now. I'll just say one of our panelists. A rogue panelists. You might say. I think anyone if anyone's followed like any of our programming probably this out but i still try to maintain some element of mystery one of our. I think our road pal has him. Fourth. what am i crazy is that is that not real. You keep talking about. How regis that could be wild. Look this up. Do you have the reckonings staying blowing up right. Now i will. I'm a click away. I'm a click away. I if you look at our rankings. Someone has him behind holloway they do. Aj mckee and brian ortega. Oh my lord this is a thing. This is real.

"Casey lied in in the in the which is currently Parked in cleveland. I'm ready to get yeah. I don't think i'm going to be on the show anymore. Because like thousands music right there. Great Thank you for tuning in right now. I assume everyone twenty and just saw an incredible performance by one giga chakaodza. A putting away veteran longtime lightweight contender and recent featherweight contender It's obosa via strikes in the third round after a pretty competitive pretty competitive first two rounds but First of all. I was right. I giga win this fight. Let's let's make sure we. We emphasize that. I believe you picked barbosa. I did and i went. That's fine and i wish jed was here because he said both was going to destroy godzilla which at that was a little unreasonable bar. Boza would mixed martial arts and he just didn't he He he thought he. He bought a glorify of smart gloves. And by the way. It's not a bad grandpa. i know We've seen we know probably a little more well rounded. We probably just seen more of him. As far as i go into the final. Four you guys not a bad grappler. All he got to use a little bit this fight. Of course after hurting hurting barbosa on the feet. So it's not like he likes straight out grappled him but he said he looked pretty comfortable down there Going for choke and then and then finishing of course with With strike as has tried stand so really Jose what did you think of the fight. in entirety. Not just the results about two and a half rounds of action. I thought barbosa had an absolutely atrocious game plan. Get these punches to the body for whatever reason He was finding some success with leg. Kicks i think the calf kicks. I think it was late in the second early in the third round and gigi just adjusted and bar. Bosa didn't because like even the the abroad cast normally watch the fights broadcast on but If if one of the fighters that is calling the fight has fought one of the fighters involved in the fight. I do like avenue on just because they will have some sort of insight. It's actually fight. And even paul felder. An michael busy made made a point to say as soon as edson started to find success with those calf. Kicks gigi just switch stances and adjusted and ettore. Bosa just didn't and you try though these hooks to the body and gig takada was just kind of circling away and just kind of slapping that kick in and it kind of pushing him away violently so it was just weird weird weird game plan for from ed's barbosa whereas seems like giga came with a perfect one and even when edson was finding success. Giga was the one who folic veteran that adjusted on the fly and edson just didn't whether he just didn't have time or not is another thing maybe just got hurt early just never recovered but on the fact that giga almost finished in with that choke won the I can't remember which ron i was like man. Kenny jacuzzi submits hasn't are both my head going to explode but awesome performance from giga. I really wanna see him. Fight max holloway. Or yea rodriguez right now because dude look like world-beater dono if he beats either of those two individuals because especially max he puts together game plans like no one else can adjust on the fly like no one else. But i i just really wanted to see gidget. Qazi fight someone that Can just bring every aspect to them and they out in that fight yes after the fight he called for while he said i'd like to be reserve for the upcoming alexander volkov ski brian ortega featherweight title fight and then said in a pretty long winded way. He wants to fight. Max holloway by the way fighters do not volunteer to be the reserve for a title. Please do not unless you're getting guaranteed show and win money to be reserved than by all means do it. If you're not getting that guarantee it's cool to be a company guy or company gal. Do not volunteer to be reserved. You you will get nothing out. Sorry it's i know. I know that's got a cynical thing to say. Cool being company guy. it's cool. That's the cool thing to do now. I mean they've your sam alvin. I mean it's last you a long time. They'll talk about him in a little bit. I guess it will for christie bass thirty. I'm sorry this is the ultimate fighter. Twenty nine finale not using as let's call by card really is and that was headlined by repair. The word fight Casey do kind of agree with jose. That may maybe Barbosa it wasn't his best strategy tonight against you. God's yeah pretty much agree with everything. Jose said I still i still think. Giga is better mixed martial artists but Sorry edson was a mixed marsh artists but but he made this a kick boxing match with small gloves and Yeah and that's what's gonna happen I'm not saying as a lose every time. They were in strict kickboxing match. But he'll lose more than you'll win and that's just a dumb dumb. He's really good. But i think i really think gig Got into his head and got into ego when no we heard those comments earlier about geico saying you know what what does that. ever done. la blah blah. This you know and you know Isn't a fighter. He takes personally you know. And then he fought. P didn't fight the right fight and that's what happens and we got we got bonuses. Let's play the game casey. I know you'd like to guess. I saw them as well. Casey go ahead. Let's let's have a Is there is there a fight tonight. Yeah there's five Total Sort under undis- undisclosed fight of the night. It's not an official one. But they're going gonna give him some extra money. I go ahead. I really bad. I'm really bad. I only watch the main card. So i i'm actually oh really okay. Jose main guard. Yes are are jose wanted. It is al-hassan mir shark gives you qazi sabatini All one bonuses. I thought i think.

Jed is not what this so we have guys. We have a full card. It's a busy weekend we've got what. Pf l. tonight invicta tonight. You've see on saturday. And then paul woodley on sunday. We're to a good event guys. It's not look too far ahead a good. You've seen event edson barboza Gaza which i think is a perfect piece of matchmaking Maybe i'm wrong. I'll go to you first. And just what were your initial impressions of this fight when it was. My initial impressions were finally. I'm pretty sure. I've tweeted this four or five times asking for this fight specifically after brian ortega and korean zombie fought. This became my new. I'm just gonna tweet about this until this becomes a reality. I think the first one time i did. It was after giga one. On the first jacksonville card it was one of those first pandemic fights. I can't remember who he fought. I think it was a very last minute. Opponent is like one of the. I think he's a fighter actually went up in weight to fight him news. He was much more short giga kinda clowns on him for fifteen minutes and then immediately like man. I would love to see him fight. Edson barboza was also fighting later that afternoon. I think that was when edson barboza quote unquote lost to dan. Ebay and get jacuzzi had said he wanted to fight edson barboza ever since 'cause if you remember ads barbosa decapitated beneath dare you. She was one of the knockouts of the year. When it happened in giga in benito dare user i think main trading partners like if one of them gets a fight the other one flies in justice specifically trained. So i've been asking for this fight for a little better part of the last eighteen months so i am absolutely ecstatic. That not only that it's happening but it's twenty five twenty five minutes rather fifty minutes. Yes this is a main events worthy fight. I think it'd be really disappointing. This was just Shove dan komen somewhere even on a paper view. I think we'd all rather see it on a main card. It's a great showcase. I think it'd be on. Espn it will be on espn okay. So that's this is a ufc on espn card. Loss of exposure now Our own damon. Martin spoke to giga earlier this week. Recently and one of these was that you know he thinks a barbosa looks great when he's kind of fighting guys who aren't like at his level and strict he's talking about the fight of bits and he's not super impressed with the with everything he seen from barbosa jed truth to that that against a more technical striker like yoga. We might not see. Kind of the freewheeling. Aggressive proposal usually no categorically insane. Esenboga has fought honestly quite arguably the best run of competition of any non champion in the history of the ufc. Like he's looked good in these look. Bad hasn't has not had anything to do with them being quality strikers or not it has everything to do with how they fight at not saying anything mind-blowing whatever edson barboza is the best fighter in the world when he gets to fight at his base in range and when he doesn't he is much less effective and dj. Godsey is a great fighter who has not been anybody anywhere near the quality that it's more bose's competed against and also doesn't really fight in a style that will make our bows uncomfortable. I'm stoked about this. Findings can be awesome with the idea. That barbosa like He's lost a good strikers. No just engaged isn't what you'd call it. Good striker hits yard and declawed him like he's he's fought fine and beaten really quality strikers being quality guys doing everything. He has a clearly defined weakness. Fortunately exploit that. So we're gonna get an awesome display of kicking. It's gonna be great. That definitely is flicking. The giga kick versus. You know whatever Whatever kicks that barbosa chooses to break out. I i do want to sit on it. So i want to say the exact quote because i'm representing gaza properly here because you're right i mean to say he hasn't fought high levels. Striking competition is somewhat insane. I'm like some of the names. Of course he fought. Pol felder just gave g dan hooker and that's just recently. That's just recent anthony prentice. Yeah so a lot of good names. But i guess he gets saying from a technical standpoint. I guess guys who haven't done Excelled like you know traditional marsh Certainly striking martial arts outside of emmy so. Because they said he's done he's done everything against way lower level strikers there levels in this game in the striking especially what has he done in kickboxing or karate. What his accomplishment. I understand that it's beautiful when he's doing spinning beautiful highlight kicks again. Someone that never did any high level striking at a fight. All this for me is nothing casey. Now they've kind of hear that full quote. Does it sound more or less insane kickboxing this weekend. That thing glory that okay but with with the question is it gonna be often fight that we're asking. What are you asking is Questioning the level of striking competition that barbosa has faced supposedly in mma. It's now i mean. I understand what you're trying to say isn't barboza is basically hate saying this. I agree with jed. He said everything right. Okay no barboza when you look at his resume. It's frigging incredible. He's he's on that that that that kind of short list of unbelievably good anime fighters who might never fight for you if the title you know just because davis comic mustafa he's that level clearly incredibly a level talent just the way. The matchmaking works he just loses to that champ right before to get to that championship fight. Losing the guys. I could be before it'd be champions like that Gauging guys who know really good fighters I don't know i just there's barboza. He's looks amazing. Forty five I thought he'd beat dottie. Beat mr felder..

"brian ortega" Discussed on MMA Junkie Radio
"Time for november. But dana was asked about this in houston. Says we've talked to new york weekdays. We're going to be all right. Because new york defines indoor activity as sports and entertainment as well as dining and a broadway show or a supermarket. Whatever and they were going to actually have a vaccine like mandate or something like that and so channel would say look. I'm not anti tax. I'm just waiting for fda approval. But i think. I mentioned this last week here on the show that i looked into it. And let's look at. The approval was close. At least on the fis vaccine. So i think that vital be okay in november. If it doesn't happen it can in december a couple of weeks later.
