"charles lavera" Discussed on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani

"When i look at this from stylistic perspective. It's really tough to call because both guys can finish. Both guys can stand. I mean all of our striking as approved immensely during this incredible run. He's been on and chandler just says that one punch life altering power in both guys showing that they can finish the fight on the ground as well obviously oliveras the more decorated jitsu practitioner chandler has never been submitted in his entire career. It really is a fascinating matchup. Jose and if you booked this fight every month for the next two years. I feel like we'd see a different fight every single time. So what's like the burning question or two questions you have heading into tomorrow night in regards to this title fight. The big question is how will try lavera fair when it gets in her on four and five if it makes it around for him because he's fond made events before but it's never god's those championship brown's and he's very very good reactionary jujitsu. Like i'll hurt you against the fence or hurt you standing hurt you in the clinch. And then while you're dazed he can lock on choke standing at snap. You down or you shoot in for lazy take down. Because you're hurt you can just grab your neck and choke you out. So i just because you're just because he closed the gap in you're on your feet is by no means. Are you out of danger. Game submitted by charles oliveira michael chandler. I wanna know what it's like when he faces. Someone of charles oliveira's caliber grappling. Because like i said. I asked michael chandler at the press conference historically. He does very well against high level. Brazilian black belts black belts black belt and i just but no one that michael chandler has fought as dangerous as charles oliveira. And like you said charles oliveira has looked incredible on the He can hurt you in the snappy down and choke you out. he's a man that if you give him one second of you've committing era charles oliveira will take advantage of that. Michael challenges not make a lot of errors. So this is just going to be a violent chess match and i am very curious to see who comes out on top because that michael chandler nocco. Dan hooker was amazing. But that set up was pretty rudimentary. And why is it rudimentary. I'm not. That's not a knock on michael chandler whatsoever. He just said it very well. There was jab jab jab cable with an over here Any caught dan hook cold so I don't think charles oliveira will make that mistake. But we've seen charles oliveira give up or quote unquote like is bodies given out of it. As higher level of grapplers he is. He's been submitted a few times. He's been finished a few times. he's missed wait a bunch of time. So we've seen him tap out and get knocked out finished and not make weight. So i'm jersey. If this charles oliveira is mentally strong compete with somebody of michael jealous mental fortitude and there's a million questions. I haven't i have and i again. I just can't wait for saturday. Yeah i mean. I kind of have the same question about both guys. If it gets in the third. Fourth ron's i mean i know all hasn't been like in this inside the championship. Bronze before he got into the third in his last two fights and he looked pretty damn fresh to me. Got the finish against kevin lee. And the tony ferguson fight. He looked great in that round. You know channel has gone five rounds before but at man is a piston man like soon as that fight starts. He just comes out like a cannonball fifth year. So i'm curious if we will see a more composed michael chandler or if he's going to go up and put a ton of pressure on olvera get on the offensive and try to break his will and look for that big shot early those questions and more. Obviously jose will be answered smart. I'd including who will be the new lightweight champion of the world. Jose be in humble opinion. i picked michael chandler when this was first announced and i've gone back and forth and i don't want to be a wishy washy individuals all to stick with my original pick and michael chandler I don't know if he gets it done inside. Five he has he's shown has been able to go five rounds and just kind of Smush a decision out of someone. He says his style of wrestling is more anti jujitsu. Which is a fair assessment I don i think he'll be he's he's is camps in sanford Such a level. Right now that i think he's ready. He is obviously he. Trains with gilbert burns whose incredibly high level grappler so. I don't think charles is going to have anything that he hasn't seen. It's just a matter of. I said if michael challenge one mistake charles. It's gonna be rough night for him. Same thing with charles oliveira. And i just think charles oliveira has left himself open for a few too many shots in the past on based on my decision solely off of a past past fights that i've witnessed from these two but again charles lavera has obviously grown as a man and a fighter whether those those windows are open against someone. Like michael taylor. I don't know. But i picked michael challenge to begin with. I'm a stick with it. Normally and i know you agree with me on this one. It's a close fight for a title like this. I always revert back to to be the man. You gotta beat the man mentality and we don't really have that here and the other is sort of like where that little bit of destiny siding with and you can make a strong argument for both of these guys. That destiny is on their side. So that's out so third for me. I go with my gut and my gut is telling me that the fight will get extended into the championship rounds and that chandler is going to have to play some ketchup down the stretch so at that said i will slightly lean towards olivera to win. I don't know if you've finishes that. Plus six fifty oliver by decision line looks pretty enticing right now so i do think of a finnish comes. It'll be chandler. Finishing olivera probably inside the first rounds. But i think olivera will be able to weather that early nasty storm. Hang on and get a close decision. But then this is a really tough fight to call as is the coleman event. Jose we get tony ferguson. Looking to get back in the win column for the first time in almost two years and he takes out a man who has lost over three years in benin darioush dariush has been cruising along since the lost alexander hernandez. He's won six in a row. Finally he's been asking for for a while he gets a shot at a top five opponent. A guy with the big name former interim champion in tony ferguson. So your thoughts in this main event. What is at stake for both of these guys tomorrow ratty lot more as a state for twenty years loses at three in a row. And if that's the case then we really have to put him in that category that we kind of we thought we discussed dominic reyes after the jerry loss like at one point we thought dominic grazes best heavyweight won't play a lot of people thought that twenty might be the best lightweight at questions already. Obviously been answering beams. The best tony's now on a two losing skid losing adjust engage losing child various dot anger hat. Because those just you.

"Days. Prior dispenser fish article came out. That's literally all i was thinking about. That's it but i get what everyone is saying in that night when i was watching it and i was like goddamn this is on. Abc calvin is taking insane damage. It's gonna freak a bunch of people out And i freaked me out a just. Because i article was so fresh in my mind Brown brought it up off. Elder brought it up. A bunch of other fighters brought it up that week and doing a lot of social media for it. So alexandersson i so. I had to watch that spencer fisher video a few times and then that same day did you watch the jen's pulver reaction video casey. Yes i did. That was like. I watched it back stage at the fire house. I got dan. This is just this. Is freaking me out right now. So in that night as little stressed out about it but i get i completely understand tyson's response and herbs response and everyone else response so i don't have an issue with it being stopped but if they had stopped in round three or four five i would have been like thank god but yeah with dana white's comments. He said he thought calvin cain was going to. I think i think that was an i have no. This is all hypothetical. I have absolutely no one has told me. This is just my me kind of putting points together at my own brain. I think that came out specifically because the spencer fish article came out and dana did a whole lot of interviews about it. 'cause shot to kevin iro yahoo. He pressed dan on it Jon morgan of anime junkie brought it up. A few other people brought it up and dane was saying like this happens to contact sport this and that and then now that it's on. Abc daynuss. mike up. He's afraid and taken to the hospital. Let them talk to one. He told He said that to him. I think it was make maynard. Or sean show remember who's one hundred campbell to dc. He said that's a calvin coach. She said that's calvin and it was kind of a point of focus on so a dana white does feel that way which i'm sure he does good on him and but be. I think that specifically came out because the spencer fish article came out and maybe he says a lot. And we just don't know. But i think that was a reason why that came out on youtube. Just my just my theory though. No one has ever told me that we talk about this but remember that bike cater is negative. His legs never went wobbly hit it went wobbly once but it wasn't like kevin lee barbosa leg kinda gave out. I mean there was no point where kevin of the fight that that was crazy drop was drop none. Yeah that's that's it's now cater in his next fight. I'm sure there's gonna be much shorter leash if he's taken being because on one one one one fight like that in your career okay. Two three five. We're back to dispenser fisher member. He had like multiple like wars war. War you know so cavs next fight that's gonna be the kind of. I guess we'll be questions that we not equality engaging has been saying for the last few fights who's got five wars left in me and he's had four straight quick finishes he's finished three got finished so even he's fully aware of a now anyway. He's talking about that speaking. Just engaging interesting gordon on the site and find do just also shot onto memory. Casey last week you're listening. Can you break up your question. Break of his attention. Dude agree with justin. Engages thoughts Title picture such mess. He felt not only orient ferguson. But every fire on the rosser disrespected making challenge the backup fighter. The fight against habib I don't for the challenge thing. I think that was more a lot to do. The marketing and kind signings big named free agent and giving him that spotlight that way. I don't think it was meant to be disrespectful whatsoever I just think they were. Try to build on michael chandler into do with deserving are undeserving and vice versa The like titled picture shouldn't be a mass but we know it will be. I think charles has done enough might. I don't have problems with fought channel. I don't have probably fog foggy. Any of those guys but habib is retired. But kristen what you make of the lightweight topic to right now. I think we're just as confused as i was a couple months ago. When we talked about this. I thought a lot of answers were going to be given after. Ufc two fifty seven. But now i'm just used. I'm confused by a lot of the moves that are being made currently. And i think that a lot of people are operating under the guys that doesn't portray is essentially the champion right like he's the uncrowned champion as he has given himself the title which i completely agree with. He has to be like the number. Two lightweight at this point behind could be at with could be and his looming Relinquishing of the belt. Which should be happening soon. I don't know that it will but they seem to be dragging this on for a really long time. there's going to be a need to fill that vacancy and for me. It makes sense. That dustin pori and charles oliveira get in there and scrap for the vacant lightweight title. Which is why. I was even more confused that they gave the offer. Michael chandler and charles lavera again on short notice like didn't they do that already. And charles oliveira said no. I'm not taking that. I can't cut weight that fat soon. I think it was at u c two fifty seven or something like that. They wanted that fight. Go ahead you know i was. I was confirmed yet. That's whatever though so he turned that down now they do it again. He's turned that down again. Because i agree with you. I fully believe that charles oliveira has done more than enough to earn a title shot. And if we're going based off of like mayor talk receipt definitely like the kids on a seven. Eight fight win streak. Why wouldn't he be right up in there. But i hope this is not a situation where they're gonna say well. He keeps turning down. The fights were given us over. Gonna move forward and it's going to be michael chandler versus dustin employees for the vacant lightweight title. Which doesn't doesn't even seem too interested in because he doesn't think that michael chandler has essentially earned it in the way that a lot of other contenders has done so and then there's just gauge..

"Dustin has a lot of options right now. Is there anything you want to say to dustin. As you considers his options he wouldn't win. Way gotta talk. Shots was very happy for that. So there's a flight to find him. There's no other guy in front of him but look what he's done on. I in warwick pony furnace. Did you all the other whites before. John's pick the that's the point. Solar it's Shoddy all right. So that was great stuff from all three men Don't have a lot of answers right now. But i do like to talk to them kind of feel and see where their head is at. I think the michael chandler thing being offered a fight. Ufc two fifty eight against some unknown opponent was super interesting. He is really endearing himself to the brass. Obviously the support as in the driver's. See right now. I don't necessarily agree with him that they wouldn't do the connor trilogy fight for the belt But i think this is what i know for sure. What i know for sure is imported next. Fight needs to be for a title now whether or not they want to give him. The title Once hubby relinquishes it fine sure i wouldn't have a problem with that the guy deserves it. you could make a strong case for the conor mcgregor fight Being for a title two weekends ago if they don't do that his next fight needs to be for the vacant title. That i know for sure now do they go with condor three for the vacant title. Do go with justin g- h. e. for the vacant title. Do they go with michael chandler for the vacant title to go which is all for the vacant title. I think from a meritocracy standpoint. No-one has a better case in charles. Lavera eight in a row. Seven of those eight wins. Were finishes i. I just don't see anyone out there with a stronger case than him. If you're going for business connors the biggest name. He's the biggest business you can make a strong case then for chandler versus kitschy And then there's a ton of other interesting options at one. Fifty five like feld versus ferguson. And guys like that. Of course there's not as out there and what are they going to do with him so a very interesting time at one fifty five and i look forward to seeing how it all plays out now of course as you know. The ufc was off this past weekend a rare weekend off. But they're back this weekend with show headlined by ulcer over reimburses alexander volkov interesting than that in many respects is the co main frankie edgar versus koi san hagen. You know how i feel about koi san hagan. This is a massive opportunity for him to take that next step at one thirty five and this is the first of several shows in a row for the ufc one championship on fridays. Well but Things are going to get really interesting. Now is suspect. We're gonna have a wednesday show I will most likely be on the road doing another. Nba game. yes. I'm going on a plane for the first time since march of last year for the first time since i came home from izzy versus romero ahead to book a flight. And i'm going to get on a plane and go to milwaukee that So all you people making fun of me for not leaving my house. You can't joke about that anymore. And so we'll probably do one from the road. Stay tuned for that. But i'm happy that we were able to give you guys wanna show if you want those full interview go to youtube dot com slash. Espn mma page. You know the site by now also continue to rate download subscribing review. It's very important. You may not think it's important but it is very important my friends i appreciate it very much.

"You remember for like eleven or so years. I did a show on mondays sometimes. It was called hawaii show for the most part. It was called the arrow. We spoke to nine ten eleven twelve thirteen fourteen of the biggest names in the sport at the time each and every week i mean it was incredible thing. Anyway i want to go back to those days just for one monday only and i think the the response has been great. I wanted to get some big names. And so who. Bigger than charles oliveira who bigger than michael chandler who bigger than dust emporia to To go old school with of course everyone's still talking about the one fifty five pound division coming off of two fifty seven dust. Emporia did to conor mcgregor on what michael chandler did to dan. Hooker of course We don't really know yet what they're going to do with hubbing amalgamate off and his belt and there's also charles lavera who's one eight neurone is coming off an amazing win over tony ferguson. Back in december and you got names like just gave out there as well. There's a lot to discuss regarding the one fifty five pound division. And so. I suspect if you're living on the east coast and this might be foreign to everyone else and i know there might be an east coast bias here but it is snowing a lot outside. I don't know if you know this. It is snowing a lot so you might be stuck at home. You might be shoveling right now. Fire up an old school addition of the hawaii show. And let me keep you company. I i We're gonna hear from dust emporia then we're going to hear from michael chandler. Were also going to hear from chazal era and his translator. They all have a case to be made for that one fifty five pound title. They all have interesting things to say. All three conversations were fascinating. And so i look forward to talking to all of them but i let us talk to the man who defeated conor mcgregor. Not this past saturday. Last saturday massive win for dustin paulie. Where does he go from here. Who want next as you want. The both izzy the champion. Already all those questions shelby be asked right now. Congratulations.

"Did play after. Was this news timing angry and presumably go find the right body shots he has also combinations and then he starts every combination with the body punch which leads to his opponent. Bring his elbows down which leads right hand which released a right hand hitting the head of his opponents so he goes by shot right hand overhead to the had been after that politics right hand gonzaga's left and hits him with his left hand so he goes from body right to left combo that's essentially what he did for the majority of fight here and that's how he pretty much despite. Its so it was in the tail end of the second round here. Susannah tries spur a left leg kick butt patches counters with a right hand. Then heads a body shots to high-kick apart pummels suzano saddam. Definitely out of it. He stumbling as he's drunk person in the bar. He can barely put his arms up. His legs are all wobbly. And the fight ends. Brutus zano gets a standing. Ko rate a posh wins the fight. Not expert here. We got the number four. Shinya yoki james nakashima a lightly ballad in mma. Now i always prefer striking too bossy. I love seeing strikers. Going at it one typified. I don't enjoy seeing though. Are striker wrestlers. Like i don't like the kamar mon verses the hurry mazowe all get pretty predictable. There i seen that metric so often over shirkers versus rustler's then for the most part russia's typically win that bouts and when and when a wrestler does win the ballots. I'm like well what expect the guy isn't gonna go. Striking all day is he. So when i saw matchup here it was It's bj pursued wrestling. And i thought oh. My goodness is awesome. I love grapplers going with one. Another even if people wanna dog on baskin his battle against Deeming my who was darn good was grappling submission another really grappling sufficient. I ever should go watch. Severely underrated is heavenly was charles oliveira and upon seeing kevin Tara a part of your brain is like what's charles lavera with the style. He fights with his high-level jujitsu. This dude i believe has a chance. And as he's like really long and lengthy has a chance to be summoned like bieb. I'm a firm believer. There is anybody right now in the afc who has a chance to be could be off. It would be travel. Aveiro because is bj. Skills is really darn good and this about between yoki anarchy okajima. This really is a crap. Crap about beatty delivers wrestling so should elke. He is ranked number four in the lightweight. Division james shema was formerly ranked number one in the water division and then he lost his rankings and moving down to lightweight so nakashima coming in as the bigger fighter here but she yoki man. This looks yoked. Jack man looks awesome. It's awesome he's thirty. Seven years old are proper gentleman vitamin this. It looks great so ilke. Mealy goes for a high kick but is blocked. Both are attempting kicks early on. And when i say takes me like soft lead kicks reported kicks or keep kicks none of both. These guys are like spitting roundhouse cakes and high kicks immediately early on the fight here but aol goes in for a clinch but nakashima presses forward and present onto the cage. The two are separated. Nakashima goes for a left but is countered immediately with hara hand by yoki. Winning into striking. Scene is here. Nakashima goes right baiocchi ducks under jumps on the back of nakashima and yuki is a position. Nakashima does go down on one. Knee gets back up. Strong body there by nakashima trying to go and maintain control on top of just pressing all his weight down on nakashima hoping the nakashima just collapses and then you can go on for a quick submission victory but he's able to do that. Nakashima is doing a really job. Control his body. he's not tumbling falling down. He's maintaining good balances himself so ilk then he gets back. Requisition tries to lean over. Put his way down then. Goes to fall on body triangle of nakashima. Oh elke reference head around the head of nakashima and she. Naoki is able to go get ahead squeeze in any wins the fight. Shinya aoki's wins the fight via submission in the first round and upon submission victory. He currently has the record for most submission victories in one championship. History with eight submission victories. So congratulations for shinya. Yoki there and with that victory he might move away up in the rankings ranking systems for one championship does get kind of confusing as in. I'm not really sure if you can move up and rankings if you're able to a fighter whose unranked because although james seem out the guy was ranked number one he was number one in a different division and he's moving down so she needed Here able to defeat and technically unranked fighter in la division. I'm not sure if he moves up in the rankings but congressional him. This guy was super enthralled upon the freeman hughes incredibly emotional no fighter was as emotional as him up on his victory competitive relatively compared to everyone else. So congratulations for shooting and man with a record defining victory and so before i get straight to the main event here which by the way is out versus. I'm staying here as best. i can. Capitan pechiney academy. And yes. that is the last name capitan particularly academy. And when you look at a lot of one fighters names a lot of them is just this big promotion for their own finds candidates in those one fighter who i watched in the last one event where it was like captain moi thai kickboxing academy and like his last name was actually more thai kickboxing academy. I was like what the heck no way that you're actually and look it up. There was singing young kickboxing academy and apprenticed This dude literally changes name in order to be academy kickboxing so it's like last name kickboxing academy. I'm like okay. This this really strange. It really is and the reason i'm talking about is because i'm looking at the promo package and something know about this fact which is so far off from the west packages so if you watch a lot of western packages will be belt or efc you kind of a good idea of what to expect. It's a guy talking about it and he thinks long lines of You know. I've been working really hard for a lot of years. I'm gonna go in there. I could beat him stand up. I can beat him the ground. Yea i'm sure fans that you know. I'm really messed a right then. All at once title like that's the general idea of mo- spider promos are in western shows. Michael chandler Gregor you the talking head of like i'm going to go in there. I'm gonna come out from the title. I'm show for pro family. You know typical stuff in one championship for some reason. There's a filter. And i recognize because as somebody who studied film in college. This do has like they have like a silver low contrast little saturation. Like everyone like everything. Looks gray looking. We have a camera shot. Questionable were a person's getting knocked out. It's only see how their body as you're getting knocked out in like everything's a gray. They put like kind of look at instagram to overthrow looking. Instagram filter overlooks. And also you hear the narrator. And i need to know i. I'm to look for this. I'll see like what are they seeing in other countries because this show primarily is dedicated to appealing to an asian audience. But i'm watching this english like this english version of the show where we have an english guy speaking over the the fight package explaining everything we don't we don't get any talking has the only talking head that would be similar to that of a western talking head in wasn't enemy show would-be mango. Who dislike talking about angelilli but other than her every single one of these packages is a gray instagram filter..

"Fight to me that you've been a great point about poor as mileage and it could be a help to him. And dan hooker fight because that's second round between those guys which is absolutely ridiculous and maybe the emporia of old. If he was in that position he might have got finished in the second round. But the composure. He showed in. That moment makes so intrigued for this fight with connor. Because you know he doesn't freak out when he's in these moments anymore he's able to get through them. Is that something you notice as well as that just spark an extra bit of intrigue deal. It's a great point by you. And you're seeing me. Nod my head and i do think. The apex has an effect on certain fighters this tremendous calming influence. And i think pori age kind of walked out felt like he was better than dan. Hooker everywhere as humbly as he would say that and just very comfortable in that environment. Almost as if it's glorified success. You saw him. Talking shit to the broadcast team is paying. If i'm not mistaken and then going right up to dan. After the fact it's a very intimate setting and fight island is different right. I don't know how many fans are going to be in the middle building. Vip's are going to be in the building. But i do know that the thirty foot octagon is going to be in the goddamn building and there are going to be at least one hundred people around. The it's a different setting. And by the way conor mcgregor is going to be walking through that door and knock dan hooker so i can't wait to see how it plays out you know. I haven't had a chance to call that many of macgregor's fights i feel like i've been step-by-step with poor for his entire career. So excited to see connor. Make that walk and Come hell or high water man. However many kobe tests i gotta beat. I'm gonna be there. January twenty three great to rick pitino at the walking through the door. I dated of course. Michael chandler is gonna tape you against the aforementioned. Dan hooker on that car. That's a banger. That's a big win. Of course catchy and charles lavera out there as well on the outside looking in and as good as and as important as one fifty five has been for the ufc. Do you think this is like the most fascinating year to come in the history of the lightweight division. In your mind with with all these questions unanswered yeah. I don't know how you could argue otherwise you know in my inbox. Got a couple of doozy's yesterday right. I mean it's fascinating to see how it all will play out. And i also think islam akasha has an interesting name to bring up because one thing that i think a fan suggested. Maybe one of our podcast listeners. If you wanna shot could be if you really want to be the guy that maybe would draw a be back you know or if you're drew dober- whoever it's gonna be go beat islam akasha right. Go knock that guy out and maybe that'll get cobwebs competitive spirit going a little bit because you know that can't believe mukasheva future. Ufc lightweight champion. And they believe it's a matter of if not when or when not if i should say so fascinated to see what happens at fifty five to see if chandler you know can really be a factor because that's biting off a whole lot with dan. Hooker is the entry fight. So yeah man. The covered is the furthest thing from bear. And we're excited to to see how it all plays out here on a couple of weeks then. Of course the big question is whether or not habib comes back because you were there. You have c two fifty four. What a moment. That was mitch. Justin gage announces retirement. But the you have c. Dana white has has not close the door completely add. They're going to be meeting early next week. But what's your gut telling you john. Do you think we've seen the last of habib or do you think something. Entices him back in there. Well i think if you're asking me to. He compete in the next twelve months. I don't think so you know. I don't see much differentiation between twenty nine and thirty and l you know go start playing twenty nine black on the roulette wheel you know move on. I just don't see some value in one more win. You know what i mean. Especially if he made his promise to his mother. Now there's a lot of guys out there that provide intriguing challenges and maybe that would be something that that could be could speak to a now. That competitive spirit isn't necessarily there and the manner in which he disposed of two interim champions is such that you know those rematches don't make a lot of sense so i know he eventually Is going to get some sort of competitive edge. Maybe he can scratch it as a coach. I really don't know. But i think you'll see him. Maybe at a grappling setting at some point but in thirty six months. maybe. But i don't see him in the us in twelve months. And i hope i'm right on that. I think he had a great capstone on a great moment. I'm not in any great desire to see him rush back to the table. I'm with you on that one. I just got back from picking my son up at school. I know you get ready to pick your kids up from school in a few minutes. But i didn't want to get your take on a couple more things before. I let you go john first off and i've said this a million times now. Dana white deserves a ton of credit for what he did to get things back in twenty twenty one hundred percent but one thing. That's kind of irked. Be john is to see his relationship with the media deteriorate even more so than has been a long time. It's been interesting to watch. And i'm sure you saw the video or shut down the naysayers and prove people wrong et cetera. But i'm curious. What did you think. Think of that video because listen. There are some in the space who are negative john. You've seen it. But at the end of the day i feel like the majority of the media members we had questions and i think we're right to have those questions as this is all coming together so this notion that the may media tried to stop this from happening my opinion. It's a bit far fetched. But i wanted to get your thoughts on that. I if i could and do you think this relationship between the media. Dana white can improve. Because you know him better than i do. Yeah i mean. I think it's unfortunate and i think a lot of what you bring up as fair and i will couch what i say with the fact that i basically turned in my card as a broadcast journalist when i signed with the ufc in two thousand and eleven and essentially became a promoter. I will say though as somebody who works for the ufc and is a full time employees. I think a lot of us got a little bit defensive that maybe we weren't getting the national credit as a whole for putting these live events on in this climate. You know and when some of the mainstream sports leagues for lack of a better way to put it would come back they would do so with all this fanfare. And how are they doing this. And why wasn't the nba.

"We just covered the last bell tour championship fight slash events. I'm also by the next week. I'll be covering the final one championship events. Which is the big bang. Partout butts right now. i'll be covering the last. You see pay per view events of the year and this event while while while you c two fifty six was certainly a spectacular show from top to bottom and what better places started off with. Then with the main events. Davison figueredo versus brandon. Moreno for the ufc flyweight title now. Before i talked to me spite. I gotta say they're proud. I am really proud of where the flight division was earlier this year to where is now a lot of that has to go towards some grado some of that also to go like fighters to hand we pseudo. I saw richard video from emma on points whereas talking about how like how the ufc fighter division it went from his super boring division. That people were not interested in with a dominant fighter as a champion in johnson. And the fact that. I remember this. I remember reading this up in the sense that dana white's and some other execs really disappointed in upset that damaged johnson would rather fight. Ray board than t dillashaw interesting. I thought it'd be dream fights. Tedious dillashaw versus johnson. Silt dream fights. I would not know who would actually win between those two fights and of course at dilshad when he was We now not dillashaw. The guy is a cheater but during this time as deep ethnic champion one could argue that he was probably the most exciting fighter at the time and was on a roller coaster. The guy had a whole lot of heat behind the dude. Meanwhile we'll dementia johnson who everyone accepts is a great champion but it is. He can't pull the numbers in he doesn't bring people in into the seats and i'm not knocking johnson. The guy is great. I still say he is the greatest fights of all time and the postal pressure. Somebody asked in white white. Hey what was the thing that made the division really good. And then i give really big thing almond tweaked would just tweaked some aspects of the fight vision. I didn't know what the tweaks are guessing. It's some some top fighters from afar region. Were being let off. A couple of doing a couple of being laid off in a couple of them started being a new one coming in like some forgotten. Brenham right over here and so looking at the current state of the fight division. It's in a really good position and it's especially in a really good position after this fight which by the way one of the night and is a candidate for five year with greater is brenham ran on both. These fighters are coming off this one month ago one month ago the both won their respective ballots in dominant fashion dominant fashion. So here is coming here as a huge underdog. David figures coming in as the heavy favorites. And it's without a doubt. The most flyweight bouts i've ever seen in the history the ny believes In the bottom left hand screen of the when you watch the events issues twitter issues. Twitter's the twitter reactions and what people are saying. The comfort team are saying. It's an abso spectacular fight. If you've got social media he were going to say. Wow that was without it that easily. The best fight of the night and some a really tough competition and twenty frigates. Charles lavera and mckinsey numbers Roba those fights could could have also been fight of the years or five the contenders. But we're gonna refrigerator was brandon here. And here's how. I viewed the fights The view the fight between relatives. Forget it. it's up to you. But the i would say the majority of people bleeding figueredo one that fights but it's really close. A really was now dips. Instigator was able to figure. It didn't really win. The fin the fights it was a majority draw with one person voting forfeit weirdo and in the third round. There was a low blow which deducted one point from for your radio. So hypothetically speaking peel political f- figueredo did not get the minus one deduction points. It was a real possibility very probable. That davison figueredo. What on the fight still. And so without the minus one points it would be figured a winning the minus one point it figuring winning one judge over the three and two other judges scoring as a draw and they probably scored it in favor of radio but the only reason why they didn't do that is because my point here so i think it was very obvious is how i view. It's there's a figure when the fights in the when i look at the judges but also looking at it. I say figueredo rounds one through three. He won one two three fifth round. Those are the three rounds. I believe davis regardless truly one. Now those other close by believer laredo edged amount just a wee bit it was in the third and fourth round where things convert extends fights was virgo. He lo- kicked he locust low on moreno in his private parts. It was loud. It was stiff and i am shocked are batum right. I was able to recover within the span of two minutes. And eight seconds of this bout here. And you could hear joe rogan kc coriander like. Oh my goodness random random and can even.

So if you're gonna order the pay per view or not watch along with us on december twelfth and that's at seven. Pm pacific ten pm eastern. That's what time the start however goes in iowa ducks early as always last time. I think we call a full nine fights with you guys. Part of it was because we went in three fights in on the prelims and the main card had six fights so Not that we mind one bit because we love fight night and should be a ton of davis. Big rattle of course will be fighting. Joseph ben evita's and ilkka koi. He signed up a few weeks ago. He's also on the card. tony ferguson. versus charles. Lavera will be reminding you that for the next couple of weeks. Perhaps you could share tweet with your friends as well because it's going to be a fun night bites are i goes so listen. We got a few minutes before we get to our first guest. Tj lavon from mtv Let's hammer through this quickly. I know some of this is it beats you down nick. The as ninety nine point nine nine nine nine is he coming back onto twenty twenty one. I think they'll announce something. But i think it'll never happen. Just because there's there's too much on that kid's life To get them to follow these guidelines and i'm not just talking about recreational easing on. I'm just talking about the app and checking in and telling people where you're going to be at knowledge that i just don't see him doing that at at a can't remember a time where he actually follow those rules. It's always been very difficult. So i think this is just an era of obama made. It doesn't suit him. I don't see it happening. Liane edwards has the bona. So don't know what's going to happen with Shimane I'll keep hitting refresh to see their navien announcement of somebody stepping in or it may be again. I what happens is by time that it's announced a week's gone by and they already know they've had the mild symptoms or if they got hammered. pretty good. That's why you'll see a lot of them do what they're doing this where it's joker hermansson biting marvin batori. Marvin victoria was supposed to fight a few weeks against all those sousa but when kevin harlan fell out they brought matori up a few weeks and then guess what kevin harlan goes. you know. it's not that bad when i'm going through. I'll be ready in two weeks to take the tories spot so it could be that they just preserve the matchup when we get it at some time in january. There's no more december cards after those on or The old switcheroo. I don't know what do you want. Well it's scary because liane edwards. His case was horrible. When you hear him describe it and he said he lost twelve pounds or something like that. Like we've heard some of these guys that have just kinda hit pause and just waited a week or two and then just right back in their training camp seemed pretty pretty bad. So i don't know about that. It's safe for him to really get back in there. I think he might unfortunately need to take a little bit of time. Which sucks because it's been a little snake bitten with with everything that's been going on and and you want to see the guy fight but at the same time you wanna see one hundred percent liane edwards and i don't know what we have right now by the way homes that while this goes for any fighting on december nineteen actually fighting anytime soon with the way the ronas kicked up. And let's face it man. I know these fighters go into the octagon by themselves but there with the team and then they come home to people. I'd bet you there's a lot of people are just gonna go. You know what. Hey we'll we'll get we'll we'll we'll do it in january. We tried. we couldn't do. It would have to do it in january. Now it's fight week and you're already quarantine you're here in vegas. A lot of them. Want to power to get that check. I get it. I bet you a lot of especially the ones coming from foreign land but hop on a plane It could be that they're just like hey you know. I'm good for now magazine. Hey brian data that. Here's a nice one. He got his dad that The jeep rubicon. That fancy one man. You see the wheels. Did you see what he did that. That was really really cool. Is that if you'll recall is the one that's always kind of giving him his head nod of approval the handshake of approval towards his career towards his fight. He doesn't say much. But brian values every one of his words while bryner take ahead to make a choice at one point george whether to stay on the streets or again the main i love that commercial. That was really cool to see that obscene that A lot with different athletes. And it's always pretty touching. I remember. i mean granted. This isn't like a a fighter to but i always thought it was cool in rampage gave tiki that a woody allen The dow was always really cool. Yeah for sure. And i think it wasn't just because he was his manager i think tiki just been in his corner so much you know. He did the whole season of up with them and then individually in in fights ever since he kind of broke away from that wolf layer. Camp.

"We are back so. Fighters is under divider currently all of this. has to be. There is good enough so. This time last year he was unranked now he's right for Senate now in the Light Division and I'm really happy for him. I think he's he's writing. He's developing the second win. It is the secret after longtime hasn't pretty much a journeyman in his career, and now he's slowly sliding his way into hopefully the top five depending on if he wants his next match up here. So it'll be imported in by buddy about com. trolls deliver calls at Twenty Goodson and doesn't Pori. I'm ready. Just give me a call. Likely Contender Charles Lavera knows who he wants to fight next in the octagon. Unlike, many athletes has struggled. Stay active. Burn across. Lake Charles Air looks to take advantage of the situation to take some time off and nursing a shoulder injury for the past months now all the gold up DOE Bronx wants to jump right back into action with his submission. Win Over Kenley back in March. Oliveira scores his seven seven streets. Stop in the Octagon and now looks at the divisions contenders for his next outing and interview with eiji fights. Troll of calls out both former interim champions, Tony and portia for a match in the near future. I thought I thought injured against Kevin Lee. Oliveira said I a soldier either shoulder injury, and the pandemic helped me take some time after a couple of one hundred percents, and the took some time off to to see came back actually to stay in shape and Beret, just waiting for a call I call that conor McGregor, but it didn't work. There Must Paul felder who defeated me, but he doesn't know what he wants. He says he's retired Paul. Fellow says he's not. Popular says that he isn't a retired he December tired. So he going to say I'm in I'm in my best moments. Seven straight wins five ice missions to my knockout over continued I. Don't ever leave it in the hands of the judges. have been reaching out to the letting them know I'm ready. Just give me a call I'm gets anyone in the top five I I would have a war on poverty because of style. Until he's a former champion. And we and even though he lost his whites, he has he was on twelve win streak before Shirley. Those would be good names. For a submission victory over Kevin Charles Alabama who is twenty, nine, eight one contest also scored victories over so middle tweets during his oppressor street in couldn't Jim Miller Klaipeda and Nick, Lens thirty olds last loss is a Tiki of defeats on or from felder back in December of two thousand seventeen, so good thing therefore causal now does he deserve a fight against US import or Tony Ferguson? All I, believe so. I believe that he is good enough to defeat any of those people. I say. So there was this to me makes the most sense all. Doesn't Pori in Las Vegas that Hooker graphite by by the by contender there? It is I. Don't see. How doesn't partiers as manager or even or anyone? From Spike camp is? It's. The one thing. The one thing that's bad of air is although he has wins over ethnic Lands Kevin Lee Jared Gordon. You any like not worthy wins. With the exception of being Kevin Lee who right now Kinley? He's outside the top ten rankings. We don't know whether Kim back. When you look at Star parable of star power somebody in the realm of black. Ferguson just engaging. Can't Oliver all those fighters. Yes I believe he can. If he fails fighters, now will ever be book those because of Star Power. Now that I think he's really lacking starting now, though is here now as soon as Paul felder. He's ranked number six in the division right now. He's ranked number six. He just lost the Dan Hooker. Oliveira says he's outing. For a Paul. FELDER fights I don't see why popular will like to go match against Charles Lavera. Because the failed right now he's calling every single fights and the July shows. and. He says he expects a long career for rock assery now. FELDER says he's about semi retired. So. Let's think about if if let's say. FELDER was inactive feathers active idea if there's an active then now replace all over being number six, and so this fossil match our Dan Hucker. A Ferguson just engage you. That's a really good division there. Could be fighting anybody right now. Are than engaging ferguson and potentially connor just because he's a big name. And, also pori almost feed. It could be in that one round Full Garden Gag. Ethan took on him. So! When I look at the line here I don't expect Charles Oliveira. To fight against could be. In the next year I think Oliveira will finally if you were to all, his fights ruined all fights, he a title fight against the champion at the time in the year twenty two. That's how I believe I think trousers very. Here's a lot of. He's a lot. I go through the I. It fell is unavailable. Odd Book, Charles Oliveira Instead Hucker. To be a part of your candidate own see Oliver Hooker. That's a complete tossup. Our choose Oliver winning that my right now over there is so good. All of your has everything. His trekkie abilities on point. He is such an aggressive fighter here. Kobe competence aggressiveness. All were dynamic and that Charles Oliveira throws up. Weird Hi, donkey kicks in the KIKES. Olivero gives you more room in a dense Kevin Lee there. Kevin only had no breathing room. I remember seeing anybody pressure fighter as Charles Oliveira did against Kevin Lee. So, let's not Oliver Versus Hooker my personal pick would be Olivero. That'd be my personal. Take right there and then if all were defeat Dan Hooker. Maybe. It makes more sense. Here's if they were light divisions. You can interchange those fighters times in rematches you could have. Ferguson research disengaged fight. Two more times, and not be titled You can have to Bite against doesn't Pori you beat by engaging twice? You can have could be Ferguson, personalized and Conor McGregor. His name is always being thrown around there, even even though he's like, he shouldn't be fighting for the title or top by his name is always out there and he's a big name. So Olivero he sally's line. He's waiting in line, hoping to get his opportunity. In a dream scenario, it'd be all barrel defeats. Data, Khokar, then from Oliveira. He then defeats. Dustin Pori or twenty, four hundred or twenty ferguson the same year that a year later beyond that he then find tickets, the number. Two Guy who could we just engaged? And then could be. That's Harper now. If could be engaged to go at it. Gay T and could be worded finish belt because right now over a skillset..

"And then you guys can just react to whatever you vote moved you the most on that particular night. Ian high was we discussed shoe face Felicia Spencer, defeated. Megan Anderson, Vincent, Luquet defeated, Derrick Krantz, and your pants Krantz, Charles Lavera defeated, Nick, Lance and Dhabi Rommel's defeated Austin Hubbard what stood out to you goes. Spencer's fights sheet pretty much dominated from beginning to end. If you would've told me she won the fight I would have been, wow, good for her. But the fact that she came out and just was so aggressive from the gecko and really only think about was maybe one big right hand that was landed. And it wasn't even landed that hard on her. But other than that she was all over the whole fight was real impressive performance, and, Dan, you call this to me that it kind of play out how you saw it. Kind of I will, I will say you could probably cosign for me here. I don't wanna get want to be like, oh, he's just hedging and I tried to abuse terms. I say it sincerely guys. But I kind of had a feeling it was going to play out that way. And I say that to you George because when I when I met him at pick when our little peeking behind the curtain for your folks on when we, we kind of go back and forth. Sometimes George reached out and said, hey, you picking her and I said, I just feel like this could be a bad thousand matchup at the and it really just really just showed that with Holly home was able to experiment with take down for the first time in a fight and able to dominate somebody for three rounds. Well, this girl, I mean. We saw Felicia man. She gets after she hustles her butt off, man for to get those take downs. And when I saw that in the footage and my oh, okay, I'm pretty confident she can do that, here. And she's a black belt and taekwondo can stay safe on the feet. But yeah I don't wanna. I should've just said all change my pick as well. But all I did. All always thinking was ooh Cheang. Okay. So I manage to use it in my picks but I was just staring at the staff picks right now. Right. And I realize I went three and three I didn't make that change. So. This space it when it comes to happen. All right. Look, I was impressed with Luke. I dare Krantz went out there and just made the best of a five day camp through a couple big right hand couple, right? Hands and worried Luke gave for just a bit. But look, it was able to get get off and win. Charles a lavar is just the stud, but what he needs because he's got a five nine five win streak. He just needs to be people better rank higher than him. Otherwise, is gonna kinda stay on the outside fringe. Top ten he needs to now finally get an aim watery. Merle day is he's got a look. He's got the, the studious look with the glasses. And he comes in. He knows that a submission game. And he the, the flying ease that guy should just be way more popular than he is. But every time they stick a Mike but. Little all in Portuguese, and then the transition school, he said, blowback come on, man, just say, how hard is it to learn one sentence in English to fight fill in the blank in Brazil? What do you think Rochester, Rochester will go nuts? Everyone runs the Twitter. It's possible. The guy hits you back on Twitter and goes on down the same way cyborgs that I'm down to Felicia Spencer, boom and maybe you get what you want. Otherwise, the you've see the pimp. We'll just tell on that particular. We'll just tell that particular ho- you'll go, where we take you go. You know what I mean?

"Oh, yeah. Jacker manson. Sorry. Good. Kevin. A couple of points. I agree with Greg hardy thing, I don't think a lot of people were giving them craft for the second chance. I just think you're pissed off. Because he's getting like Coleman event spots is getting fed cans like that's what I think the problem is. And who's compared sage north cut? They Greg hardy man, North Dakota and compete in alleged hold life. He's never cashed out in a fight and look like a sloppy bomb. I mean, he's always in the fight. So I don't know anybody compared him to drag Cardi that don't make any sense and second point is John Fitch. I didn't really like ROY McDonald's comment. I felt like he was kinda taking away from John Fisher's performance. Like, oh, I didn't really want to be there. And I couldn't pull the trigger above. We couldn't pull the trigger. Because John was on you like blue and John Fitch makes everybody look like that. And his little I didn't have it in me, blah, blah, blah. No, you don't have it in. Because John Rich's is an avid and seven Anibal will keep take a punch you try to get him out of there your big time. But you weren't prepared for him to come at you like that. So I didn't really like his comments there in my third point is Jack her mansion, well, what a performance I like how he wants to the ground. And you prove everybody wrong about that grounds of like, you don't go to the ground with Jack Ray like that's the big narrative. Can you believe you went to the ground with Jack rate like amazing? He's got skills. And if he hurt jock Ray. And especially if he has I wouldn't have been shocked to see him as many times you would have done it in on in top game. You know what? I mean, what you don't want is the other guy on top of you and definitely taking your back. And then it's like now, it's really really high risk business. But but him hurting them and attacking on the ground that way whether from ground and pound or just being on top. I mean, jacker Manson's got some skills to. I heard people saying opposite. Like when Chris Ryan was by Jack, right? Saying why didn't Chris widened come in stepping in blast double-leg when he was pressing when shocker is precedent for it. So hard can't let someone press for that hard. You gotta either step in and clinch or step in and attack. Let's take down. I like how Jack did that every time jock? Right would press it for a lot. You always jab or you'd press in and clinch. And when I said there for Chris to do that we were saying you can't you can't take down jock rate too. Good of jujitsu guy in the ground. And I say they called in to Jimmy Smith show earlier. And I said Michael Chandler did the same thing versus the Javanese your guy. Remember the guy? Yeah. A really good dangerous guy, and you do and what a chance to do. We took them down and beat the hell of my top Charles Lavera. I mean, I think he's probably one of the most dangerous you guys in the world do snag snag submissions office back like, it's good as anybody. What it Paul feather? Do took them down beat the hell out of them. So this kind of narrative don't go to the ground with guys, man. If you're in top position, you got such an advantage. It's so hard to get some it when you're on top. I feel like some of these guys are like they're afraid to go to the ground with people man, if you get submitted when you're on top position you need. You gotta get some work done you need to really work on your ground game. Because there's no reason you should be submitted. If you've got opposition. When you're sweating greasy from that facts, that's lean your rained down punches on top..

He went out there and had a really nice kick to the head on. Oh, sorry. Yeah. Basically he caught him with the backheel. I was thinking he had kicked him. But he did but caught him with the backheel, and then he had a spinning elbow, and boom that was it. I mean, it was all so fast. Like, I couldn't believe it. I wanted to see much more. And I know that I sat here and said, hey, let's got hands watch out. I don't care about that. I just care about seeing more out of both of them in and finding out if this dude is internet I in so far it looks like he is. But still, you know, he's only to see he has lost before. It's not like he's undefeated spotless record or anything on that. But still man I mean, I can't say enough about this guy. I'm really really excited for him. And you know, the lightweight division with some of the other guys that we've talked about recently like Dominic Ray is in Alexander ratchet. Helix great what I'm trying to figure out in my head is I mean dot guy looks like a guy that has potential to give the champion some trouble. So do you keep them in Brazil or do you start bringing them stateside and promoting them here? Good question. Now, I think you gotta bring him. Stateside one thing you have to. Yeah. But but I speak English needs stars. Because we talk about the Aldo's of the world and a few of the other one Anderson silver might have is last fight against is. He styles on Saturday. So we do need some new first blood. So maybe this is their way of saying, look, we'll keep him here. We'll keep highlight on. But now eventually cost came over. You know, what I mean like or he was going to do the New York fighting. He did the fight with your hall. So I I think you just gotta do it. You gotta put him on a pay per view though now. Yeah, I agree with what you guys are saying, you know, to the regional note as as far as like how he looks and antics or tracking. But go set I think that's going to transfer to what goes said about taking him and putting him in other markets like US markets, and you I really don't think you can pick and choose too much in this day and age even Jose Aldo. There's there's conflict about that. And the guy's a legend only has like what three more fights if that left, and, you know, the people always really gonna stay in Brazil, right? We were just doing it ourselves. So I I don't I'm not too worried about that. I think he will be able to do what goes said and and translate well because here's my tumble yesterday of this. And I want to talk about the finish real quick before we move on. But here's my barometer slash hypothetical litmus tests, can you picture them in the pride entrance with a fighters. Walkout before the event. Yeah. Yes. Totally right. He's a guy you can picture Ray. Like, he's he's a character kind of stands alone..

"At some point if premise goes out and starts his guys because he's only eight and one. So he's got a record. He's a previous champ. And. You know, like we said, you know, there was some moments. We had you as testing that leg again. He took his back. So we'll see. Yeah. I totally see what goes saying. And I think that's fair. But I will say in Michael channel news defense of of whether he under underestimated miss estimated, whatever word you want to try and use their. To be fair. Brent premises a weird sample size man that dude's only fought once a year since two thousand thirteen and that was the only and that was the only year where we fought more than once in his whole professional career. So we really didn't know a lot about him. He got his finishes in the first round and had three only only two decision to three around. You know, three round decisions. Never went five five rounds. We really didn't know a lot about. Brent premiss end. And it's and I think he he he he showed his worth he gained a lot of respects. He he seemed genuinely game Michael Chandler's respect, which says something, you know, you don't want to be competitive on the opposite. Michael China's a nice guy you just don't want to have to sign the contract against him. He's not not nice. If you've got to fight him in that cage. Right. And he here and his respect, and it was not depth to that division. So he'll see another title, and I'm actually excited to see him go against the, you know, the classic Bill names if you will. And I will say kind of to what goes saying, I did see more chatter, of course, Patrizio fioretti was coming at coming up Michael channel right after it. And generating a lot of talk. And I think the way Chandler looked against premiss at least from what I'm gathering and reading on on on the whole Twitter sphere. People are are more excited at the prospect of of that fight despite it's a one forty five over one fifty five or they got to keep those guys away from each other outside of the cage. Yes pit bulls. Don't mess around. Yeah. All right. Let's switch over to UC on FOX, which was thirty one. Last addition on big FOX, Fox Sports will cover the premiums for UC to thirty two and a couple of weeks. All I'm going to skate through the bottom until we get to some of the fights that I think we need to discuss we also don't wanna run out of time because we have Kayla Harrison joining us in about forty minutes, and Derek Brunson will join us thirty minutes after that interview begins so they'll still be a few other pockets, but still it's hustle to it yesterday. We had some technical difficulties. So we weren't really able to discuss any of this versus start off with the bonus is that night Zakim Silva in Jared, Gordon got fight of the night performance of the night. Went to our Quinta and Charles Oliveira, six hundred sixteen thousand was your total gate, and the total attendance in Milwaukee at the Feis inform was nine thousand and ten so on atoms defeated crystal roadshow. These were heavyweights Mike Rodriguez defeated Adam mill stead light heavyweights there to finishes on the fight pass. Then moving over to the prelims on big FOX, Fox Sports one. Dan. He gotta win over Jordan Griffin. Out of extreme couture. Good friend of the show. Congratulations to Danny gate Zak coming got to win over Trevor Smith. So it's feather way to middleweight another midway fight had Jack joker Hermansen skews me. Like my breakfast coming out defeated Gerald Mischer. Submission guillotine choke there in round one in now when we go to to lightweight bounce back to back Joe came Silva defeated Jared, Gordon and your car close defeated Bobby green. Zac auto to round out the prelims on Fox Sports one defeated Dwight grant. And now we move onto the main car Charles Lavera is now one in one with Jim Miller he submitted him..

"No, it doesn't on Yom Kippur, eve to atone for all your sins of making us look look. Look at that thing for the past win would have been like four years, five years. I'm so attached. There has to be there has to be processed on documented, right. You're going to donate it, but it's going, oh, for sure. That was always the plan. Oh, was I knew when I eventually cut it, I was going to donate it. Why not? Why wouldn't you just let it go to waste, but it's coming countdowns on can win it. Okay, the clock real quickly. Yes, I'm just gonna call out some of the fights for fight night one, thirty seven. Livia had not Sousa. Finally, making her debut former Invicta gallon, credible fighter. Yeah, maybe an atom. Wait to be honest what fighting it away and just incredible. They're minus six fifty who'll steep price, Alex chambers. I think I don't think chambers has anything for. I think that might be one to look at to parlay in, but that's that's heavy, heavy money too heavy odds to be giving to a person making their debut in Libya. The one play that I that I like at this very moment. Unfortunately, there's no props out Tullus late. This is an underdog to Hector Lombard. He's retiring five is actually to retirement fights on this card. Yes, ladies in have been done done. I'm as well. He was as high as one fifteen. I saw this morning. I think he has a good chance of beating Hector Lombard. I'd almost want to wait to see the props, but because I wanna give you some kind of pick. I'm gonna go late as an underdog. I think he could get done by knockout actually rather than submission. I think he might be getting a knockout. I'm fading Hector Lombard, big time on this one. Ryan span is another one I like, but he's minus two forty. Don't love him. There Tronoh against Dunham who's already as you said, got one foot out the door. He's minus three, twenty five. Don't love him at that price. Either. Charles Lavera is minus three eighty. Don't love him at that price. There's a lot of of plays that I like, but can't can't pull the trigger at the at these numbers. Henin Barau is minus one twenty five over Andre. You'll at plus one. Oh five. I think Andres game and I think he's he's live in this fight with Barral, but I'd like to see him at a little bit of a higher underdog price. Alvie minus three twenty over little nog who's plus to sixty. I really like alvie here. I think a little nog hasn't competed in a very long time. I'm definitely fading him, but I don't know if I lay three, three twenty on Sam AVI against anybody. Really. I'd like to see that price comes down before I do it. So really tell us late is the only is the only one I play and I be waiting for some props to see in this one unders just to give you the main event. Honours plus one twenty-five Santos's minus one forty. Five. I think that's about right. I would say wait for the prop for that one. Not to go the distance, but I said that about the last fight with Santos and Holland and it didn't go well, but I can't see. I cannot fathom Eric unders and does not finishing. Fight five round five round event like this past the this has to finish the price is going to be steep, but maybe that's one that you parlay with Libya outta Sousa, throw something small on that for now Balas at plus five. That's that's my only official right now to to give everybody status rep Ford for. Okay. Catching three and four wouldn't have made a lot of money from last week because as I said, the prices were steep here. We've got an almost even even money bet on, tell us. All right, good stuff. That's this weekend. We are at a time. Thank you. Is your New York, Rick. Thank you. Mr. Jake, you hit my music. My wonderful music there. She is so much has happened today. We talked to the likes of Johnny nj. Chris cyborg. We have talked to the likes of Chuck. Ladele AK, don't call me Chuck lie del.
