"conor mcgregor" Discussed on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani

"Fighting dot com reacting to some huge news tonight. Of course you have C. Two fifty went down in Las Vegas. A lot of great storylines came out of that event, but conor McGregor as he typically does. In a fight night he took to twitter and instead of reacting to the events like you normally does instead announced his retirement, the notorious said quote. Hey, guys, I've decided to retire from fighting. Thank you for all the amazing memories. What a ride it's been! Here's a picture of myself and my mother in Las Vegas Post. What am I? World title? Wins pick the home of dreams. Mags I love you whatever you desire, it's yours now as As you are probably aware. Conor McGregor has done this before in two thousand sixteen after pulled from UFC two hundred. That's when we got the infamous. I've decided to retire young banks for the cheese tweet, and then in March of last year right before allegations of sexual assault came from the New York Times against conor. McGregor and you're dealing with other charges against him and run INS with the law. He said Hey guys. Quick announcement I've decided to retire from the sport formerly known as Mixed Martial Arts today I wish my old colleagues well going forward and competition I now join my former partners on this venture already retirement proper Pinochle Adas on me fellas with that. Let's bring in Alex Kaley also from 'em. May Fighting Dot Com Alex Conham Gregor his timing always impeccable with these types of situations, so I guess the first question is as you roll your eyes. Do you believe anything kind of Greg tweeted tonight? Why do we have to do this Michael I? Mean I know why we do really well. Why why do we have to do this? Why must we indulge this man? Look he's provided us much entertainment over the years I'm not going to dispute that. He's provided US much website traffic. If we'RE GONNA. If we're going to lay, all the cards are on the table, and I'm sure the story provide some as well but I just. See why does he have to do this? Why do it after this? What was a very enjoyable? UFC Card C two fifty a fine event. I think we discussed in the post fight show. People can also find on Youtube and and may find dot com. WHY SPOIL IT? Why now I mean shouts to MOM's great I'm glad he tried to soften up this retirement announcement by dedication to his mother whatever But it's. It kills me that this is news. I know it is, but it shouldn't be. He's not retiring. He's going to fight again somewhere whether it's boxing where the for Friggin one championship I. Don't know I don't know what this guy has planned next. Does these things I'm not gonNA. Pretend I could get inside Conor McGregor mind. But. This retirement is S.. He's just keeping yourself in the news and we're talking about it so I guess it worked. Okay. When I first saw this tweet Alex I rolled my eyes like you like everybody else. Who saw it was just like. Oh, here, we go again. But then you kind of look at things in the landscape of the sport in the UFC right now and you think to yourself this comes at a very interesting time with big name. Fighters have SORTA dug in against the UFC about their proverbial piece of the Pie. John Jones your MC light heavyweight champion use the first one to sort of break down the fourth wall, so to speak after. After negotiations reportedly fell apart for a heavyweight fight with France's and Gano. Bone said he wanted more money, which is quite understandable. The greatest fighter of all time deserves more money Dana. White says that Jones wanted upwards of thirty million dollars said he had text messages to prove it John to those claims, asked for the text to be revealed, and then also asked to be released if the doesn't. Doesn't believe that he's worth the money these asking for and then this week even earlier today on Sports Center we've heard from ory. Mazar Dole, who is also called out the see for the way they are handling negotiations for his next fight, with as most would assume are open for the wealth way tile, anyone on sportscenter as well and started talking about percentages from different sports and all this. This stuff, so why do I mention this Alex? Because the timing seems very interesting with everything going on right now. McGregor comes back at the beginning of twenty twenty. He runs through Donald, surrounding and forty seconds to forty six, and it seems like Connor was lined up for a huge ears I in fights with gauge, trying to match, make the entire welterweight division and lightweight divisions right now. Is there a tien hair? Is Connor saying you know what John Jones? He's speaking up or Hey Mazda he speaking. What if I speak up? What happens now? Yeah Mike of Courses Related to this other unrest, general unrest that has been brewing, which does all the big names you mentioned? I just wish that that these guys realized that they could have done this before. I wish that there was actually an organized effort. I mean again. It's kind of all happening at the same time. I wish there was some way them or their management. Whoever it is that that would handle these things for them. Get together. Guys are stronger together. Each of you doing these retirements and walking away is is it's cute. It's cute. Okay, I look I know. These guys are grown men at their forceful. They're used to you know. Just achieving things and getting their way through again through sheer force of will, but that's not what gets done at this level at the corporate level. You guys got to have organization. You guys got to have a plan and I don't know. Maybe this is part of some plan that we don't know. Maybe maybe maybe they're on their opry on another level Mike that we can't understand and then they actually are doing stuff behind the scenes, and it's all going to materialize and makes sense. When Peters Union springs up this fall or something, but guess what I. Don't it okay? That's wishful. Thinking that's not the way it is as you said. It's just McGregor kind of riding this wave. He knows he's he's. He's always been a taste maker so i. think the fact that he's not the one leading charge or maybe. You know considering he's done it twice already. I think he feels a little left out, so he had to do this to to let people know. Hey, I'm the original shock collar on the original walking away from the sport guy so here I am again talk about me instead of John Jones Muscle Hendrikse who or reminded man Amanda Nunez Whoever I I. I'm I'm the one making the retirement news this week. That has a great point. I would agree with you on that one. The timing was a was very interesting..

"conor mcgregor" Discussed on SI Boxing with Chris Mannix

"On in boxing and now a man who i wish was called the boston leader it's sort of like getting who punched in the face i welcome back to the sl boxing podcast glad you could join me this week lot to get into in the world boxing couple of big fights coming up over the next couple of weeks all heading into deontay wilder against tyson fury that big match up on february twenty-second to break it all down and more i i welcome back keith idaho senior boxing writer over at boxing scene dot com keith what's up man a chris how're you doing i'm good man i'm good just a lot of interesting interesting stuff in boxing going on right now but it few days in boxing and in the land of mythical matchups it's been pretty interesting i guess i want to start there just just this past week we had conor mcgregor returned to the UFC reestablish himself both as a high level UFC fighter and one of the biggest draws in all of combat sports the UFC reported that mcgregor did i think roughly two million equal of two million pay per view buys with their their system a big number especially who's fighting a guy with a thirteen losses who's heavily favored to go up against but all of a sudden instead of talking about mcgregor in UFC fights were kind of pivoting back back to gregory inbox and you may wonder putting out a tweet saying or social media posts saying that he's ready to fight him in two thousand twenty two rematch manny pacquiao wants him at twenty twenty leeann now bob arum says that terence crawford is ready to fight a to fight match against a matchup against mcgregor where crawford would step into an MA eh octagon first and then mcgregor would fight him in boxing so give me your overall viewpoint of this what do you make of now all these boxers again clamoring for a shot conor mcgregor well not the type of fights were looking to see of course chris i don't have any interest in i couldn't imagine anyone else in their right mind would have any interest in seeing floyd mayweather and conor mcgregor box again there would be interest of course if floyd for some reason would be willing to fight him in a UFC or some sort of variation of mixed martial martial arts rules type of fight that isn't going to happen we well know that so so let's take that off the table i can't see conor mcgregor fighting manny pacquiao i just there there are too many options for manny pacquiao and boxing matches i mean against boxers i don't think manny would even entertain fighting him some sort of MMA fight but there there are there are appealing options for manny pacquiao in boxing now that he's with PBC there's the earl spencer fight there's danny garcia there are people that he can be matched against later this year when he comes back to the ring ring and then the one that was thrust upon us yesterday by bob arum is the turns crawford conor mcgregor fight which makes a little bit more sense it ah because terence crawford has a wrestling background he wasn't a high level wrestler as far as i know he he wrestled in middle school i mean i played basketball in middle the school with what does that mean exactly it's not like he could compete with it's not like he could compete with the conor mcgregor at the highest level in some sort of mixed martial arts fight now terrance crawford is a very competitive guy you know he he said all the right things yesterday but to be honest chris i think this is just more just a smokescreen from bob arum mm-hmm because they want you to take attention away from the fact that terence crawford does not have any boxers to fight there's no known opponent for his next fight they've they've already satisfied his mandatory commitment to the WBO by fighting kavaliauskas last month at the garden he can't get any of these fights against the PBC fighters that he wants at least for the time being in your aerospace manny pacquiao we thought there was a possibility that he could fight shawn porter all of a sudden him and show importer or such good friends that they can't fight that was the one PBC top-ranked fight that we thought we could see at welterweight they decided that they don't wanna do it so what is there for terence crawford at this point so so here's bob arum pulling a page out of his old promotional tricks and you know making story into into something that we know is not going to happen happened turns crawford is not going to fight conor mcgregor an m a fight i and then fighting a boxing match second it makes no sense why returns they would make a lot of money and people people would be interested in it and i'm not saying wouldn't draw mainstream attention and all that but what does that really do for tarrant crawford legacy or career he's thirty two years sold christie's go he'll be thirty three years old and september he's starting to get to the point where he's going to move out of his physical prime without having fought the type of fights at welterweight talk that we want to see him in i just don't see how fighting conor mcgregor in a UFC fight does it will make him a lot of money and i'm not saying that's not an important factor in this but other than and that what purpose would it serve tarrant crawford to do that yeah i don't think it serves crawford much if any purpose except as you said to make a boatload of money any in a couple of major events that would be watched by a lot of people but it doesn't advance him in the boxing world all it doesn't advance him as the top fighter that he wants to be in all of boxing i think i think the only fight in boxing that makes sense for conor mcgregor i think it's a fight that unfortunately we're getting more and more likely need to see is that rematch against floyd mayweather i don't know about you keith and it's i've just been getting i've been getting pretty strong sense that not only is floyd gonna come come back this year but there's a pretty decent chancy fights twice in two thousand twenty and those two people that come up are mcgregor in a rematch i which would be the the equivalent for floyd of kind of shaking off all that rushton taking what would be a doubtedly a very easy win forum at a big payday and then that rematch with manny pacquiao wacky out before the end of the year i just i've just had too many people not necessarily firsthand information but second and third information that they believe that's the direction that floyd's floyd's gonna go and i look i didn't i didn't have any interest in floyd mcgregor the first time i was very vocal about it that it was nonsensical but i i feel the same way the second time i don't have any interest in it but i do think that's where it's trending right now well here's the thing chris if he were to fight manny pacquiao if he were to come back for a fight and you know may or july or whenever and decided to fight manny pacquiao again you could make the argument that manny pacquiao claims that his shoulder injury he was a big reason why he was not as competitive as people might have expected in their first fight a manny pacquiao obviously has looked better in recent years he just beat keith thurman who say what you will about where thermal wasn't his career was ten years younger than him an undefeated welterweight champion so pack yao has accomplished some things since he fought fought mayweather the first time and whether anyone believes it or not is using that excuse to say that their rematch would be competitive and they are the two biggest names in boxing and they're rematch i don't think it would do the type of business necessarily that their first fight did but it would still do bigger business than any other boxing match that can be made read whereas the mcgregor may whether rematch there is as you said there was no point in them fighting the first time other than making a lot of money which is again a huge factor what possible reason could anyone have for wanting to see that again there's no there's no conceivable reason why they should box again the first fight was not remotely competitive competitive he stopped him in the fight conor mcgregor is no better of a boxer today than he was an august two thousand seventeen it would be farcical if they kind of farcical that they fought the first time it will be even more so the second time but i do think that if he comes back and fight manny pacquiao even though floyd will turn forty three next month and many pack yao was forty-one there will still be interested in that fight because they're the two most no names in boxing yeah i would agree with that i think that in floyd skin the case of floyd versus how you can make a reasonable argument that a nearly three year layoff for may weather coinciding with packy out fighting at a reasonably high level i mean he was in the conversation fighter of the year last year with wins over adrian owner in a win over keith thurman that sort of levels the playing field a little bit and back you'll be more active and all that stuff so i could certainly see that being a sellable and understandable fighter i'm with you on mcgregor i i just feel like we're going to see it i just feel like that mayweather okay whether dana white they're gonna get together and roll the dice and believe that there's two million people out there that will pay to see that particular fight i i'm not a fan of it but i unfortunately i feel like that is that's a possibility in the world of in order of real boxing i reported yesterday dot com that alvarez has turned his attention in to riot murata the japanese fighter who is hold a secondary middleweight title is kinetico's searches for his next opponent in two thousand twenty previously they'd been in having some conversations about billy joe saunders internally but as cannella has been vocal about wanting to fight over in japan murata would be the guy that you fight over in japan he he is enormously popular and kello barada fight would do probably fifty thousand people plus inside the tokyo dome or some other venue like that so keith heath what do you make of turning his attention ought to mirada for his next fight well it would be an enormous event in japan chris as you said because the tokyo dome can hold somewhere between i'm fifty five and sixty thousand people for boxing they would clearly sell that out i while it would be an enormous event japan and and they would all make a lot of money i go back to almost what i said about mcgregor terence crawford what does that do for canelo alvarez legacy and i'm he's obviously taken a lot of difficult difficult fights i'm not criticizing his resume by any in any way but what is this fight do for him why would he if he was going to move back down to middleweight middleweight the fight that everyone wants to see as we've talked about ad nauseam is the third fight against gennady golovkin maybe you know depending on who you ask maybe they wanna see him fight jamaal charles moore or they wanna see him fight dimitrius android and then see him fight glove can again but those are the fights people want to see canelo alvarez in at middleweight no one wants to see him fight morada morada has lost hassan and dam and lost to rob brent and while he came back to avenge both of those losses you can't take away the fact that he lost those two fights he's just not that good he's a very popular fighter in japan he's a top ten middleweight but there's no reason whatsoever for canelo alvarez defied him and canal is gonna make a lot of money no matter who he fights so you couldn't make the argument what's going to be such a big event he's gonna make so much money he's gonna make money no matter who he fights so i just don't see how this helps him in any way and then it would require i guess him for the you know this mexican unholiday the cinco de maya weekend i guess it would be may second this year that's been a big thing for them to fight in las vegas on that weekend either before after or on the actual actual day so are they going to go away from.

I'm good man? I'm good just a lot of interesting stuff in boxing. Going on right now actually. Few Days in boxing and in the land of mythical matchups. It's been pretty interesting. I guess I want to start there just this past week. We had Conor McGregor returned to the UFC reestablish himself both as a high level UFC fighter and one of the biggest draws in all of combat sports the UFC reported that McGregor. Did I think roughly two million equal of two million pay per view buys with their their system big number especially. He was fighting a guy with a thirteen losses. Who's heavily favored to go up against but all of a sudden instead of talking about McGregor in UFC fights were kind of pivoting back to Gregory. Inbox may whether putting out a tweet saying or social media posts saying that. He's ready to fight him in two thousand twenty two rematch. Manny Pacquiao wants him at twenty twenty. And now Bob. Arum says that Terence Crawford is ready to fight a to fight match against a matchup against McGregor where Crawford with step into an Ma Octagon first and then McGregor would fight him in boxing. So give me your overall viewpoint of this. What do you make of now? All these boxers again clamoring for a shot Conor McGregor. Well not the type of fights were looking to see of course. Chris. I don't have any interest in. I couldn't imagine anyone else in their right mind would have any interest in seeing floyd mayweather and Conor McGregor box again. There would be interest. Of course if floyd for some reason would be willing to fight him in a UFC or some sort of variation of mixed martial arts rules type of fight. That isn't going to happen. We well know that so So let's take that off the table I can't see conor McGregor. Fighting Manny Pacquiao. I just there are too many options for Manny. Pacquiao and boxing matches I mean against boxers. I don't think manny would even entertain fighting him some sort of MMA fight but There are there are appealing options for Manny Pacquiao in now that he's with PBC. There's the Earl Spencer fight. There's Danny Garcia. There are people that he can be matched against later this year when he comes back to the ring and then the one that was thrust upon us yesterday by Bob. Arum is the turns Crawford Conor McGregor fight which makes a little bit more sense. It because Terence Crawford has a wrestling background He wasn't a high level wrestler. As far as I know he. He wrestled in middle school. I mean I played basketball in middle school with. What does that mean exactly? It's not like he could compete with. It's not like he could compete with the CONOR McGregor at the highest level in some sort of mixed martial arts fight now Terence. Crawford is a very competitive guy and you know he. He said all the right things yesterday but to be honest Chris. I think this is just more just a smokescreen from Bob Arum because they want you to take attention away from the fact that Terence Crawford does not have any boxers to fight. There's no known opponent for his next fight. They've already satisfied his mandatory commitment to the WBO by fighting Kavaliauskas last month at the garden.

They decided that they don't WanNa do it So what is there for Terence Crawford at this point? So here's Bob Arum pulling a page out of his old promotional tricks and You know making a story into into something that we know is not going to happen. Turns Crawford is not going to fight conor McGregor an M A fight? I and then fighting a boxing match second. It makes no sense. Why returns they would make a lot of money and people would be interested in it and I'm not saying wouldn't draw mainstream attention and all that but what does that really do for tarrant Crawford legacy or career. He's thirty two years old Chris. He's gone he'll be thirty three years old and September. He's starting to get to the point where he's going to move out of his physical prime without having fought the type of fights at welterweight that we want to see him in. I just don't see how fighting CONOR MCGREGOR IN A UFC fight. Does it will make him a lot of money. And I'm not saying that's not an important factor in this but other than that. What purpose would it serve terence to do that yeah? I don't think it serves Crawford much if any purpose except as you said to make a boatload of money in in a couple of major events that would be watched by a lot of people but it doesn't advance him in the boxing world all. It doesn't advance him as the top fighter that he wants to be in all of boxing. I think I think the only fight in boxing that makes sense for Conor McGregor. I think it's a fight that unfortunately we're getting more and more likely to see. Is that rematch against Floyd Mayweather. I don't know about you Keith. And it's I've just been getting. I've been getting pretty strong sense. That not only is Floyd GonNa come back this year. But there's a pretty decent chancy fights twice in two thousand twenty and those two people that come up are McGregor in a rematch. I which would be the equivalent for Floyd of kind of shaking off all that Rushton taking what would be a doubtedly a very easy win forum at a big payday and then that rematch with Manny Pacquiao. Before the end of the year I just I've just had too. Many people not necessarily firsthand information but second and third information that they believe. That's the direction that Floyd's GonNa go and I look. I didn't I didn't have any interest in Floyd McGregor the first time.

And they're rematch. I don't think it would do the type of business. Necessarily that.

I'm not a fan of it but I unfortunately I feel like that is. That's a possibility in the world of in order of real boxing. I reported yesterday dot Com. That Alvarez has turned his attention to riot. Murata the Japanese who is hold. A secondary. Middleweight title is Kinetico's searches for his next opponent in two thousand twenty previously. They'd been having some conversations about billy Joe Saunders internally but as Cannella has been vocal about wanting to fight over in Japan Murata would be the guy that you fight over. In Japan. He is enormously popular and Kello. Barada fight would do probably fifty thousand people plus inside the Tokyo. Dome or some other venue like that. So Keith what do you make of turning? His attention ought to Mirada for his next fight. Well it would be an enormous event in Japan. Chris as you said because the Tokyo Dome can hold somewhere between fifty five and sixty thousand people for boxing they would clearly sell that out I while it would be an enormous event Japan and and they would all make a lot of money. I go back to almost what I said about. Mcgregor Terence Crawford. What does that do for Canelo Alvarez legacy and I'm he's obviously taken a lot of difficult fights. I'm not criticizing his resume by any in any way. But what is this fight do for him? Why would he if he was going to move back down to middleweight? The fight that everyone wants to see as we've talked about Ad Nauseam is the third fight against Gennady Golovkin. Maybe you know depending on who you ask. Maybe they WANNA see him. Fight Jamaal Charles Moore or they WANNA see him fight Dimitrius android and then see him fight. Glove can again but those are the fights. People want to see Canelo Alvarez in at middleweight. No one wants to see him. Fight Murata Murata has lost. Hassan and dam and lost to Rob Brent and while he came back to avenge both of those losses. You can't just you know..

Welcome back. Thank you House Vegas. I enjoyed a lot more the second time around. Because your guy didn't get whipped right. It was a lot of fun. I mean I had heard so many things about what to expect at a conor McGregor fights and it lived up the high the build up to the fight after Holly Home Finish. The second fight was done. The temperature in the room changed the you could feel the tension Shinde anticipation like the UFC rolls out the metaphorical red carpet for Conor McGregor. They were changing the lights into the colors of the Irish flag. The Irish Irish music. Got Everyone so hyped. It was exciting. I love being there and then the knockout of course deplace went wild. It was so cool to see person. Did it live up to the hype I mean. I think it did like Eric. A lot of people texting me. I mean did you see that. Hey I know you're there. I'm sorry it only. I'm sorry. It only lasted forty seconds. And I'm like no. That was great. I don't don't care that only lasted forty seconds. Yes you would like to see a bigger sample size just to see for the future. How he looks at welterweight but see that and at forty seconds the way he you did this to be in command from start to end it was sick? I'M NOT GONNA lie like it was sick. I don't care that ended prematurely. Yeah I feel like most people who were there even felt like they got their money's worth all right. What's the tip okay? So this is something that I have tried to integrate into my life past few weeks so we all have our to do. WAS I. Don't off your to do with sky area but I'm a big to do guy and a thing I've noticed is that we liked to put really small tasks on our to do list things that we know so we can get done because we're all wired to feel like we're being productive all the time. We love the feeling of being productive and that being productive getting things done crossing off the list. Then we're having a good day. We're doing what we're supposed to do. But what I have noticed. Is that those small task. Those easy task often what we do I to get them out of the way because they they don't require much mental capacity and the tougher task the ones that we really should be dedicating our time to the more creative tasks. Whether it's you want you I want to read you want to write. You have to come up with ideas for things for work or for whatever it is. We often leave those on the back burner because we're to secretly Lee avoiding them and we don't want to use the brain Pavley rather feel productive and get stuff don rather than maybe dedicate our time to focus to one single task so what I recommend. Is those hardest things and your to do list that you have to do that. Require more brain power. You have to bring herself to do those I for me personally. I do these things in the morning. This is when I wake up super early around like five. Am Eastern so. I try to front load the things that I WANNA do. My creative projects that I feel will make me better so that I can be uninhibited before text messages emails. Were things start coming in. I dedicate my time my time in the morning to those things. There are things out there that you guys want to do in the spirit of minimalism and making changes in your life and focusing on the important things. I strongly recommend that you front load your day with those important portent projects creative tasks that you feel. Make you better great advice in fact when I came back from Las Vegas because I was away for so long I felt like had a lot that was piling up so I did write down all the things that I needed to do yesterday when I got through most of them stuff not related to the job bills. Whatever I felt a lot better when it went to bed like when he I went to bed Monday I felt anxious? I wrote them all down and then Tuesday night. When I went to bed I felt a lot better? So it's something I'm going to start doing and not even know that this was going to be your typical tip of the week. How about that? How about that in SYNC I? It's a big. It's a big game changer. I mean I think we just love feeling like we're productive like we're getting things done an and are often yes. We are getting things crossed off our to do list. You know like paying the bills or these task delight don't require much thinking beyond you know pressing a few you buttons we often. There's we say especially around New Year's we say there's all these things that want to do and then when we finally sit down to do it you know at seven o'clock. PM It's like my brain tired long day.

"conor mcgregor" Discussed on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show

"Night in Las Vegas Forty second. Tko Win over Donald Cowboy Surani. It was as one-sided as it could possibly get I mean dumb. Tony didn't land one significant strike nineteen eighteen to nothing he was out struck and it was just a whirlwind and it was exactly what connor needed to do. The whole week could have gone better. In my opinion he was on his best behavior. Sure when he was late he apologized press conference he was early he was charming. He was endearing it was back to the old mystic Matt. He wasn't upset he wasn't aggressive. He just seemed grateful and happy to be back and then of course he had to perform and get a nice when he did that. Be Magical on the Mike. He did that and now. The big question is who's next. That's part of the fun when you're covering connor. It's not just the build up to the fight itself it's not just the actual. Oh fight itself. It's the debate speculation as to who is next when he'll return what the stakes will be all that stuff more so today on the program we will discuss all that as we. Now start to spin forward as we put to forty six behind us we'll be talking to PT Carol of Emmy Fighting Dot Com hosted the euro-bashing Bash. She was in Las Vegas covering this fight is great to see him back. In my opinion the best European MMA journalists out there right now in a man who knows connor better than anyone has has been covering him long before his. You have see debut. So we'll get his thoughts on Saturday where he goes from here and in particular how the Irish fans now now feel about connor as he tries to make up for lost time and get back on track truly because one of the stories heading it. Saturday was the Irish fans losing in faith in him hoping him and turning their backs on him all this stuff and more We'll how do they feel about him now will will will get the pulse of the nation from PC cow cowboys. I let's say hello to mile pound New York Rick who was also in Las Vegas to take it all in for the ESPN MMA social channels finals. If you will near Creek are you there. M here my friend how are you that wasn't your first connor flight right. It was not my first connor fight. It was my first connor fight in this capacity right. UN to one eighty nine. I've been to one eighty nine. I went to two. Oh five I okay. If you'll recall I brought. This is the Brian Kello- C two five when you're great blunders now if we're going to pull back the curtain like that we'll talk about about how. You took a photo with Brian. In what was it two thousand thirteen. Didn't you remember no no. It was actually two. Oh two it was before the Diaz fight so what was that twenty twenty sixteen six forty six. But how's that a blunder on my part. How was I supposed to know? I mean you're standing in the presence of greatness and yet and even know it I mean I took the picture. You didn't invite the guy they're giving us battle raps and stuff. It was crazy was writing songs about the Rick's pics challenge or the rix takes challenge as was everybody. It was it was a mania at the time. Anyway sorry hey to start to get us off track. But yes I've I've been to several CONOR McGregor fights This was the first I was in a in a working capacity and working for ESPN. Social handles is conor. McGregor back or as Stephen a Smith said and pissed off the world. By the way I had no issues with whatever stephen a Smith said I think everyone is. You're looking like dumb asses by complaining about this so much because if anyone else would have said what he said. Anime said all right cool. Yeah whatever but because it's him how dare He. How dare he talk? Talk about mixed martial arts. Whatever I'll talk about that later if there's time Charlotte do agree with the notion that you know? He's not truly back or did he do enough to you. Know make you believe that that he is back. I believe that Connor is back in. And I'll you know there are some caveats to that. I I'll start with agree with Stephen a Smith's like we didn't learn anything different about CONOR McGregor game right like we know. Conor McGregor is is an elite striker. We know that he has the ability to put people out and he did that to cowboy. Sironi Noth- nothing new there to learn. But what I did learn. Is that his preparation. His mindset the things that he came into this fight saying and doing were a lot different than the way he came into the Habib fight and I believe that conor McGregor is significantly more dangerous than the CONOR McGregor that came into the hobby. That is what I learned. I learned that. Connor is focused. I training as hard as he's ever trained and you know in his interview with you. He said the training was always good. It wasn't the training that was the problem is what he was doing between the training and I fully believe that between the training now he is keeping his head on his shoulders and he is doing what he needs to do. So Connor is back. But I didn't learn anything new about his game. That is the same dangerous guy. That took out Eddie Alvarez. That's the I I didn't learn anything different. He didn't add a new wrinkles. It was too short a fight to understand any of that but I do believe that mentality that he had on that rise is back and I agree to a degree but I do feel like one of the big questions was you know against Habib. He looked flat. He didn't look like himself. And so to your point we we did learn that he can return to his old self his old form his foot was a balloon. I'll stop it and buy like for that again. Everything he says is is scrutinized. And that's fine but I'm going to take what he said. At face value. He was drinking. He was partly because I heard all this stuff leading up to the fight but just never from him that he would legit shit disappear before the fight. Now be is a better fighter than conor. McGregor make no mistake about it right now is the best in the world and you can make a strong case that he is pound for pound number one on and you can make a case that he's one of the great ever in the history of the UFC. But to me. On Saturday. I saw the old connor the way he started the fight The way he was all week his demeanor. What did I say to you on the Monday after I came back and I know this is kind of a week? Move because if you're going to say you should say before the fight. But what did I say to you on the Monday of the fight after I saw on him face to face in Vegas you said that the old connor was back. I said less than two minutes right. He predicted a very quick finish. Yeah very quick for two reasons A.. Because I felt it I sensed it he was locked in. I saw him train. I saw him like meditate for an hour. He just sat there on the ground And was just by himself knowing owned bothering him he just seemed truly locked in and was doing this for the right. Reasons wasn't doing this to shut anyone up. Prove anyone wrong with doing it for himself and his team to to the to prove that he could get back right not for any other reason. I thought that that was promising. And also just like Stevens said Don. It's doesn't show up and I don't know how you can defend Donald Sironi in this particular regard. Listen the guy historically doesn't show up when it's a big fight and once again just like the RDA fight just like every other big fight. He did not show up. And when did I really realized that he wasn't gonNA show up when he was at the press conference on Wednesday and he's standing up and slamming the table. You guys don't understand we're going to blow the roof off this place. That to me was the guy whose trying to convince himself that he was gonNA show up that to me was a guy who was trying to convince himself that he was ready for this. He wasn't isn't ready for this and once again all he did was reinforce that narrative so my question then is can both those things be true. Connor be back if you're saying. Donald cerrone folded folded in the way that he did. What does that? Tell us about conor McGregor if anything like it shouldn't tell us anything because he's he has to be able to exploit that he has to be able to you know rise to the occasion and take advantage of that and again I'll say even though they won't admit it. I do feel like mental warfare was being played I do think he was disarming him and that stripped stripped away even more of Surani's killer instinct at the press conference shaking of the hands. And how did he come out. How did he come out about a hell right? Certainly I didn't know what hit him. Yeah Look I've never been hit with shoulder strikes. I don't know what that feels like. I would get. I would probably crumbled to the ground right if someone hit me like that at like twenty percent of that but I've asked enough fighters who have told me that should not have had the effect that it had on him now of course we can't ignore the fact that he lost his two via via Tko. was I stopped in his last two. All that stuff amore. He's clearly on the tail end of his career but for Karnal look way to act like that to to the build up that he did to perform that way. I mean it just. That was a home run of a week like you cannot to me. You couldn't have scripted that week better for him. It was the perfect storm and truth be told it was the perfect opponent. It did exactly what it needed to do. there was some gripes about who was or wasn't leading in but there's no doubt that was the perfect opponent now in Heinz with with the benefit of hindsight hindsight and seeing the talk about comedy. Now Okay so like I said the the fun part about it as as we try to move on from to forty six this debate because because you know we have John Cavanaugh saying I like H. E. At one seventy The maswadeh talk which is very clear based on the the polls that have done and all that stuff Very clear that the fans want Mazda right very very clear your Russmann out there. You've is out there even audie just kind of throwing out Aldo As random as that was if it was up to you who you going within y Maggio.

And this report came out less than twenty four hours after Conor put out. On Twitter that he is quote, unquote, retiring so not enough info has come out yet. But just another band look from McGregor. He was already arrested in Miami a couple of weeks ago, for slapping someone's phone out of their hands a fan trying to take a picture. We know what happened last year in Brooklyn with the boss incident that caused people to get seriously hurt McGregor as great as he is. And his personality is why he's the base of that sport.

Women to close out WrestleMania for first time

"WWE is going to make a little history with wrestlemainia this go around at outta MetLife. Big. It's a big deal. It's a huge deal for the first time ever. It's an all woman main event, it's a three way match, you know, with Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey, whose champion were raw women's champions around the rousing shallow flair and Becky Lynch does the freeway match. It would be the main event. Some would call it the final match while from us. Call the main event Seles match. Yeah. So. You know, some folks thought maybe Brock listener. And Seth Rollins will be the main event, it's not universal title. This is for the raw women's championship. And you know. It says a huge deal. This is great not just for the business. It's just for the restaurant business, but it's great for women's wrestling because women's wrestling over the past several years has come such a long way, not just from WWE other companies to and the women aren't just looked at as as it used to be years ago. When it just I candy, he's a legitimate athletes. These are legitimate performance legitimate WB superstars, and these three ladies Shala flare rows and Becky alleged. They're gonna tear it down. It's going to be great. It's going to be great. And to do it at MetLife. Another just we're wrestlemanias. Always at these big big stadiums. Just like the SuperBowl, isn't pack them. Okay. You're gonna have close to eighty thousand people. Okay. At wrestlemainia people from all over WorldCom. And that just makes me so proud like as a former wrestler, a former wrestling broadcaster. You know, how many years it's taken? But it's finally like I was saying during the break to you and Andrew bogusch. Not really awesome. How so many worldwide mainstream sports verticals in sports, broadcasts companies, and and worldwide entertainment companies supporting with w w pro wrestling does on their websites on TV just a little while move says, you know, you're going to have Roman reigns. And all ladies the ladies in the main advantages named ought to be a sports center on ESPN on TV. I mean, so and and they're going to be doing suffered ESPN they did stuff last year too. So I'm just saying I just so it's just so refreshing that it's the the entertainment value is respected by the sports world. And the athleticism is is respected by the bulk of the sports world. So, but this is a huge thing. I mean, this is huge. And it's it's happy for I don't be rude. I'm happy for Charlotte flair and Becky Lynch of these ladies they paid their dues a lot of years. Lot of skin in the game. A lot of. A years. Lots of years, okay before WWE, Rhonda Rousey, she's new to the game. She'd been paid dues and the wrestling business. Great great MMA. She's a UFC hall of Famer. She's a amazing grand champion judoka. Which is a a junior champion. So amazing athlete and she brings massive stop power. But I'm old school wrestling traditionalists, and those two other ladies paid a lot of dues flair and Lynch, but Ronda Rousey is helping draw draw the helps draw the main event, obviously because I'm a stop out. Yes, she does. But not as popular as the other two amongst wrestling fans. No rescue domino. You said and you're right. And the reason is because bring name power put the wrestling fan or fans of Becky Lynn me the reason is because of respect. Yeah. Because they know like I just said the wrestling fan knows that those ladies paid a lot of deuce and Rhonda hasn't. But that's not the main reason she she's her character, which is good. They have for doing this more out of health the fans and a bunch of nerds in their basement. She's going that route which is called cheap. It's easy to do that works. It's fine. So that's helping hurt that helps her as a heel as a bad guy dead girl, get that heat. But the fans also know when she talks on a Mike is just terrible is no juicy. There's no other way to put. She's yes. I'm sorry. She's great, and my disrespecting handing she's done athletically, or what she means in for the WWE attached. But I mean, I just look at I look at the other two is just better overall. When you put everything in place. I, you know, I look at them as better overall women rested. And I just want to say this to like anybody who thinks wrassling. I listen, you watch any stuff leading up to the smack just for example, what Shala flare Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey, go on YouTube goal. WBZ's website watch the physicality that's happening with these ladies. Yeah. Okay. Watchhouse fifties kicks and punches are that will watch. And so anybody who thinks any different is a dumb ass. It just doesn't stand and they have this archaic thinking, and it's it's sad because that's kind of like uncalled Alec. It's like wrestling's embraced now. It's it's sitting here on a national sports radio show. And we're talking about this. You'll have you'll have broadcasters here on CBS sports radio. Talk about wrestlemanias that leads to on WFAN here. Locally to know wherever you might anywhere anywhere. You live right, right. Talking about this. Because it like I said they're fixing to be on ESPN. Right. It's it's clearly it's clearly more mainstream and has got more mainstream as we've gone along here. And I, you know, put all that, you know, everything you said is true TASR. I just think you look at the growth of the women are the women's wrestler. The woman wrestler in professional wrestling is just remarkable. Because you mentioned in terms of now, I remember the days of sable, right? And not even not even go back where you know, you mentioned candy and everything was calling that stuff. You know that birthday. We'll see. So. So it's so significantly different the way that they're treated and appreciated now much significant. Yeah. And they've earned it. I mean, and they do a great job. I mean, we've interviewed you know, we interviewed Charlotte all week. That's right special winter, she was doing stuff a special, which is which the WWE designate job their outreach into the communities, and helping those that need it, and she talked about that. And and we know how big of a star Becky Lynch's and Ronda Rousey, she's got some work to do in terms of. I don't know if it's ever gonna get there with her on the Mike, but we know how great of a of a physical specimen. Well, then the thing is I do think like just a my opinion that I think they if if if if something McConnell McGregor happens would w w at wrestlemania guy the table set here, you get this main event here like we said earlier, I talked about this earlier. And I'll talk about more on my podcasts on the tashaun get deeper in the woods on the wrestling. But the thing is like you got you got one of the girls listing Becky Lynch and who's probably gonna win the championship. At wrestlemainia, and for those that don't know harmonica. Her name is she's the man so speculates as you know, Muslim. She's the man that's like the gimmick. And 'cause she's the man, but she's a woman. But it's it's just a gimmick. Right. But anyway, she's from Ireland. Okay. We know Conor McGregor is from Ireland. We know Rhonda rows economy McGregor offer ends. I could see something happened where I would strongly predict if f Conor McGregor gets involved. You know, and everybody's gonna hack this for me on this radio station. Just throw some credit over here to task. I would think that Conor McGregor helps Becky somehow some way maybe if he's involved win the match that'd be cool and win the championship. Because then they could go down the road where Rhonda's pissed at McGregor, and they could do something potentially further down the

"Uh his body what's it gonna look like it's going to have more muscle because he wants to go for that knockout you can try and compete with the speed a little bit and low uh well i think he's confident is power regardless and i think he knows it he'll give up the speed and therefore i think he's probably more on the con more on the side of please get my body to where it's best condition unusually that's lean mass verses jack mass i mean in the past there's been some cardio machines you know that have had a autonomous what guy member sean shirker go for it rounds pretty good in that he was a jacked as the could as they could get but um you know that wasn't often the case so i think he was just probably most concerned with uh how many rounds i can get out of this body i really feel i really feel like conor mcgregor knows that this fight is not going the distance he's predicting the knockout himself so he knows he's not gonna i'll point for mayweather he doesn't wanted to go the distance i mean really if you think about it those guys get punched in the had a lot of these are bigger gloves so they don't go down as easy either and floyd of course if you're going to use uh you know the mental warfare against him and said he doesn't have power okay will that also means that means it's going to abusing for tora i think connors best bet is hagler earns ask.
