"A pick up prediction. Her shoulders don't challenge done. No just any name his my end for you charles. Thirty one years old. Now how much longer do you think you have in the sport. I mean you've been doing this since you you're in the afc twenty part of that as a teenager in your mind. You wanna fight for ten more years Under percents is just the beginning. Final question last question for you charles. you have been compared to the reception and what you mean to people has Has has made people start to think of the late. Artem senna the race car driver to be compared to someone like that. A legend like that. What does that mean to you. is a big pleasure to have my name near to the item center and is represent Would things for me. And i'm so pleasure and i'm so good To have my name bear with the shahi in brazil charles. Congratulations again. peta bands. Thank you for the time. Look forward to the next one. Then you all right now. Let's say hello to who. I consider to be the number one contender in the ufc. Women straw way division and the young woman. Who had a fantastic win this past saturday night in las vegas against yuan shao non arguably one of her best. Not the best. I think we can all agree on the best but one of her best in the afc. Far and i think she cemented her spot. Is the number one contender for some reason. There's some reluctancy in in submitting that spot in making that announcement from the ufc brass but will get all those answers. All those questions from the one only carlos sparce. Who's kind enough to join us right. Now carla how are you. I'm getting great talk ariel. It is great to talk to you. And congratulations on the win. Would you agree. So when i was to potentially. You're you're number one top performance. Obviously the title win against rose will be number one. I think this was number two. Would you agree with that. A hundred percent for sure. Did you feel like you had to do something emphatic. Did you feel like you had to make a point. Get a finnish do something great in order to turn the nonbelievers into believers that you are infected in one contender. I'm definitely i feel like if i Mentality was going in the fight with rose made sense no matter what for the winner but i think you know if i went in and how kind of like a boring you know decision victory. It would have been like we're not. I don't think people would have been hyped as hyped up for the fight. So i think it's really got people it'd so i said leading up to this fight. Obviously not knowing who is gonna win that. This was the clear number one contender fight at one. Fifteen considering what you've done as of late considering your past with rose considering what john had done as of late her passes while it just seemed like the perfect number gentrified if for some reason they never came out and said that. And i know they don't do that all the time. Now maybe to you know Hedge their bets so to speak. But did that bother you that it wasn't a clear cut number one contender fight out of the public. A little bit in my mind was always clear. It was always number one contender fight especially since there was talks of Fighting for the title even before this fight so you know i would like to hope so and you know hope that they just make it happen but you never know what the you have c. Like obviously a lot of people. Just kinda cut the line and get in for that speaking of of the last few months When it seemed like they couldn't come to a deal with rose there for a second you were being put out. There is the potential next opponent for zhong li. Did you feel like that was a true possibility or did you think that you were kind of getting stuck in the midst of negotiation. I definitely got. It was true possibility. We they actually even had set up the fight to be announced that they were going to give us fight on like three weeks. Notice in i'm in like with suet and then you know they're like well. She needs at least five weeks to make waiter whatever. The case was in a day only had the last card. it was like in four weeks in. They were just waiting waiting waiting to hear like i was told from someone babe and saw the promotional flyer backstage at the fights like they're ready to like put it out but they never got an answer from her and obviously when they did it was a no for whatever reasons interested you disappointed. When that didn't come to fruition was a little bit disappointed. But i feel You know this is. I'm just going to be patient and and it was gonna come when you walk by the way when you watch the john rose fight on april twenty four three surprise by not only the result but the way in which the fight played out since you have seen no both quite well definitely. I think that caught everyone off guard you know. I think a lot of people may have thought that rose definitely could have won that fight but just in the fashion that she went like so early on against such like a tough striker outweigh leeann and joanna like go at it in a war like they're obviously some super high level athlete strikers to see someone just go in there and put her down like that in the first round. It's definitely a little surprising as you were watching that. Did you think that actually increase your chances to be next in line for a title shot. hide you defeated. Yonchon what you did because of your history with rose yet. Not only my history with rose but with joanna's history rose. I think you know way liangelo and had such a such an epic fight. The having a part two would could have made sense But i think with rose especially given the joanna had recently lost to her twice Obviously i have a win over rows. I think the fight Definitely dismay a lot more sense to you. Go into this fighting john. Did you think it would play out like that. I mean she's looked really good in the c. n. even prior to the ufc but the have the The success that you did on the ground And to stop stopper like did you all feel like the fight. You know did you. Did your whole team feel. The fight would play. I like this or were you expecting something differently. You always done every fight of expecting a war like can't be like i'm gonna win this fight in one or two rounds and it's going to be done like i was prepared for a tough fight especially seeing a fight with claudia and saying that she was able to really like neutralize her take downs in the second and third and she got her timing in. She was circling she. Was you know really judging the distance That was going to have to work a lot harder to get in there. I was prepared to go for. Take down to three four five to solidify. I had to but you know. I'm not complaining. That's for sure. What about the blood. How.

"Station i went to people were all genuine people on the streets. Were yelling out of their cars at me. Good luck you know this for this fight and that first main event you know. I'll never forget that. Finally headlining i want. It was such a dream for so long now. I'm looking at two posters on my wall with my face on it. So you know didn't get that title shot but the main event was it was made in it then it was title shots right. You know i. I had a a a sequence of things that me and my mom would always talk about like what i have to do before i can think about retirement and the one for sure was definitely get in as many main events as you can. You can do in the time you feel good about still fighting to one on super short notice against you know fighting a former champion know that that sticks out to me those those two main events and obviously stevie ray fight in scotland just whenever i would win on home turf lake. That it's crazy that the charles oliveira verified isn't really one because at the time at the time that was a fight expected to win expected to beat him. I think i might even been the favourite or slight underdog in that fight but now look at him. That one's aged well. At least i'm getting credit for it after the fact so aged mean the finest wines and we've been talking about how that age dwell for so long now i mean he's been on such a win streak that me and my buddies have been talking about. That's all era win and that was a year ago. Now i mean i was so stoked nothing against michael chandler. I really have nothing against that guy but when he won we lost our minds here. Bunch of my friends were over and that was great. it's a beat the champ. Yeah feather in your cap. By the way you mentioned your mom a legend on twitter. I would see her pop up from time to time just curious. Once you made it official. What was the conversation like with her. I'm assuming she was watching. Yes yeah she said you know very classy. And she loved how i handled in that. I that i'm choosing to go out. It's really important to me. And i think to my family and the people that love me and care about me that i always said. Listen guys when. I know it's time like i will leave the sport i i will and this is you know i was saying this. Even before there was commentary jobs and stuff like that. Like i knew i wouldn't i. I didn't want to overstay my welcome. I'd rather leave the party a little early and have an irish goodbye. Peace out before anybody sees me get too drunk at that party. And if i stayed too long get beat up too much longer. I want to keep everything intact but mama's very happy and very pleased at how it down and she's excited to see what happens from here and she gets to watch on. Tv doing commentary whenever she wants and she gets to see me a lot more. So i mean. It's all positive. She's going to my race in june virginia So she gets to see me. Compete now. doesn't have to walk away and go hyder. Is you know she can Much do that stuff much safer now while you are a class act my friend and Love to see all the love that you are receiving I mean i meant like you're you're you're fighters fighter right like all the fighters respect you and i think you saw that and They appreciate your heart and your determination and souvenir connor you about the the the the the the the rivalry or relationship between you and connor is a bizarre stand. What's going on there. perhaps you do. I don't i think he's just as as they would say man. I think he's just always been taken the piss to be honest with you you know. He's a. He's a true irishman. Obviously on the irish dragging. So i think he'd him and his boys or just having fun you know their disguise himself the dragon. How can we not roast them. A little bit But i think at the end of the day. There's no real bad blood there you know. I'm trying to go to his fight. So if connor sees this connor please. I'm trying to get tickets. But you're going to be quite a sellout so as a as a you know a president to the old irish dragon or the german ja- dragon. Whatever you wanna call me. My friend gave me some tickets for that show. So i cannot take the fan i appreciate. I was gonna mention the connor thing but let's just leave. It's i appreciate you Uber yeah i loved it. I loved it next time. Talk about josh. Fabien but will leave that one. Yeah cut a group floor all the best you paul. The great thing is will still see you at all. The events commentary all that stuff.

"I hate it running. I couldn't swim. And i didn't have a bike so i went from not having a bike ever as an adult except for when i was in college I've never swam like a length of a pool until like a year or so ago. When i started doing it a little bit for training but i do one length take a break one length. Take a break now. Swimming miles in a river while During the pandemic. I started wanting to run more and then got interested in completing a marathon. I was like you know what. That's something is a bucket list thing. I feel like as an athlete. I should be able to check that off. That i've completed a marathon and i was starting with a half marathon and i signed up then. They all kept getting cancel. But i was running more and more miles and perhaps so. I started watching youtube videos to see what workouts can i do to make. These runs more interesting so i started looking up tempo workouts and just different. How to real runners you know do their training and upon doing that. I started stumbling. On all these triathletes. Doing a lot of their different workouts. Through that i've found this guy lionel sanders who's one of the best guys in the world is canadian athlete. And he's one of the best triathletes in the world. Dude is an absolute machine started watching all his youtube does does a really good job having a youtube series sky. Talbot his buddy films him as a really good videography started getting upset with them then reached out to him on. Instagram started talking he's obsessed with the ufc. And i got him tickets for the one in arizona. That's where he lives now is in arizona and just slowly but surely about peleton got into writing that. That wasn't enough. Got a real bike got. A trainer started hired This guy david tilbury davis's or professional triathlete coach And just started snowballing. And i got more interested in that than even going to the gym to do. Mma wow then. The rda fight came up. But i was in really good shape because of this race. Prep and Yeah so i just. And then i started getting in and following other guys and women and just their journeys in how tough they are and it's very similar to in that it's not just one discipline that i'm focused on just like mixed martial arts where i've got blend my time amongst a whole plethora three things of different training in different ways to do each one of those trainings and different intensities and not to mention eating so much and i'm losing weight while the day so and i'm home. I'm seeing christine all the time where our relationship is amazing right now. I get to see ashes before school. Take her to school or take school. I make her breakfast. And then you know when. I'm on the road. It's not so bad. Because i've been home all the time right. Yes just it's good and obviously they'll be you know it always sucks. I was just starting to make some decent money as a fighter so financially. I'm not hurting but it's always. It's always you to lose out on on big paydays but once i started doing movies. That'll that'll cover that stuff. Is that part of the dream about the next step yes okay. How soon are you actively pursuing that right now. Yes so i guess i can talk about it more and more now so i'm in the. Hbo show the hbo mac show hacks with jean smart Caitlyn olsen's in it. It's out now. It is how larry it's about an aging standup very famous standup female comedian. Whose limiting in vegas and she's trying to obviously update mall. She doesn't want to but reluctantly she gets an a. Younger female writer who's a comedian to help her kind of update her jokes and get her to reach out to a more broader younger audience. Because she's losing some space dessino. That's all i'll say about that and I come in later in this. I haven't been on the show yet. I'm in one episode but I got to work on you know the paramount lot in la for weeks on set with all these actors and have a real speaking part and do some real scene work and working with some guys to give me some more jobs. I mean nothing is other than that has really kicked off yet. But i just retired. I'm just now getting refocused. And doing that and i think it'll help that. I'm you know. I i can live a healthier lifestyle doing what i'm doing whereas the fighting the fluctuation of the weight one day i'm one day i'm hundred and seventy five pounds so i think this is good for long term health in in the long run when you look back at the fighting career any regrets. There's certain fights that. I know i probably shouldn't have taken. We were just mean christine. Were just talking about the one fight that although fight was probably like one of the dumber fights ever took was begging for a fight was begging for a guy that was higher ranked than me and joe so that the time was like this is the fight. Take it or leave it that it's all you've got you wanna top fifteen guy. Here's your top fifteen guys train. Although in brasilia brazil his hometown. And maybe me. At the time. I took it i wouldn't have taken that ross pearson fight on short notice and i probably would have really focused on my diet and being cleaner athlete year round. It's it's really sucks that you learn some of these lessons you know in your late thirties towards the end of your career. Like if i could be how. I am now but twenty nine. Thirty thirty one. I'd have been such a much better athletes. I'm already a crazy person already. Toughest day calm. I love a fist fight. But if i had added just being disciplined not murdering myself with wake cuts so that all those young fighters out there. My god please. I know it seems cool to be so big in your way class. It's not worth it in the long run you're just messing up your metabolism. You're messing with your body. You're gonna make things more difficult. You're gonna end up moving away class. You probably don't have to move up to but since you weren't disciplined enough early on he screwed yourself up. So that's my big regret is not living a cleaner healthier lifestyle year round. I mean i don't party like i used to. You know. I used to like to drink a lotta beers and be out and stuff still love a beer. Still love a glass of wine but all in moderation. Now you know. I'm not getting. I don't go out and party like i used to. So it's on the flip side though highlight. Is there a fight. Is there a moment. one that sticks out. Yeah there's definitely a couple. i mean. Obviously that dan hooker fight in new zealand with that crew. Having all my coaches living in in this beautiful airbnb we had right across from this park and new zealand. Were there for like two and a half weeks or running outside and the beautiful weather you know. Everybody wanted dan to win. But everybody was also so freaking. Nice to me to like..

"Things. Doing i think my priorities in my life shifted at this point in my life and fighting is not at the top of that and if fighting is not at the top of your list of stuff that matters most it's a dangerous sport to be involved in anymore and it's not it's not commentating now it is finally. I'm more interested in working the big fights for as a commentator. I'm more interested in doing other shows. Podcasts you have see round up doing. I want to do other things. I i would love to do a thing. Where i go to different gyms or take fighters out to eat and get them a cheat day and do do cool stuff like that and have that relationship with different people. Because i've been through it. I've i've known what they've got to work the contender series. Which is another thing. That's awesome because it's the hot young prospects getting getting their shot to do what i've already done to live their dream in fighting. Ufc and chase that title and and then train training is a you know. I do want to get back in the gym. I do want to go. Help sean brady. Who i believe is going to be. You know top ten and top five in the next year so I know he's got a big fight coming up and it's on the mcgregor and portray card. So i'm already trying to figure out a way to to make sure in the crowd that night. He's fighting kevin lee. That is a really interesting fight on paper Often fighting fighters don't have the next steps figured out when it's time to say goodbye. Clearly you do. Does it make it easier to say goodbye to your active fighting career because you're commentator and very entrenched in that world. It's a part of the team so to speak. Does that make it easier for you. All my ami so much easier than most ninety seven percent of the roster right most athletes when it comes time no matter what sport most athletes just have to bake okay. Football as don basketball's done fighting is done Not everybody gets to do what. I'm doing or dc. And mike and dom. I mean this is a real privilege and I don't wanna lose that. And i don't wanna lose my credibility either and if i fight but don't have my heart in. It could get hurt. I could be embarrassed so it was time to just Focus on that but yes so much easier because think about that. Most guys don't get to be in the sport they've either got a coach or find another job and that is much much harder to deal with as a as a fighter to just be done like that For me it was. Seems like a pretty seamless transition. There's other things i want. Do obviously beyond fighting. But this certainly makes giving up fighting a lot easier when you left the cage after the rda fight in november. Did you know in your head that was it. I didn't that that confused me. That confused the whole situation but in hindsight the only thing that got me really excited it was the circumstances around it because you saw. I didn't really care that. I lost that fight. I was excited for what we just did. Because the story in the the the of that whole thing was so much more to me than the actual fight fight was fun me and him went at it. We had a five round fight. I didn't win was not even a split decision. Let's be honest. Lost out fight. But i was competitive in and i made them work and i busted him up a little bit and so much fun in the crazy way cut that almost killed me being it was that bad bad really really really bad dry heaving a bath tub pouring cold water on myself Shaking I was watching these youtube videos of people slamming. Ice cold. sodas all night long. Just like chugging sodas have found this. As rbm of people just drinking ice cold sodas all night long on. I mean hours of me just watching that suck curled up in bed. Have you ever done that before. Not with the sodas. Now that with a whole new a whole new thing house. A new year's. I'm watching things that involves food as well. 'cause i'm hungry right but this was such a rapid way cut. The hunger never even became a thing. It was so much water was For so long it was horrible. Okay and and perhaps that expedited things in like. Maybe in retrospect yeah. Oh yeah i mean. I never wanna cut weight again right ever ever ever again never ever ever again and which is so funny because right now. I'm so skinny. Yeah i could see it in your face. How much do you right now. I was after the run. I did today. Which is a really hard ron. It was an hour and five minutes and it was like a threshold interval type track workout. I was one sixty nine. Wow the and that's walk around six months removed from your last fight have are like what are you usually. I woke up this morning. just fresh. I wake up. Take a pee way myself. Just normally i was one seventy two and and what are you usually six months it out of a fight back in the day with nothing on the horizon. Two hundred pounds. Wow and why are you so light because of this i've been training for this Half ironman and when's going down. June sixth and do you think that you will keep this up. Post june six yeah. I'm already at a race in. Argun signed up for july twenty fifth one in august in atlantic city and then one in maryland in october. And why are you doing this. Because i'm obsessed obsessed with the and how did that happen. Was that always something. You're into never As a matter of fact. I hate it running. I couldn't swim.

"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. I appreciate people who five stars like danny in buffalo who wrote i was a casual. Ufc fan pre pandemic became a huge fan. Since and in big part to the monday show and wednesday show.

"The olivera fight that he could get. I guess you could also get the poor fight or the winner roy connor. I mean you know. I'm i'm willing to say yes when a lot of guys are saying no. That doesn't make any better or worse or cooler or tougher than anybody but i just know tons of wasted. You know every day. That's going by you know. Every all of us are getting older. All of us are dick and time off the clock. And if you if you don't you don't need to get ready if you stay ready so i'm gonna stay ready between now and and Whenever but i will enjoy my family. I will enjoy a little downtime. And i will enjoy a little bit vacation with with the people that are nearest and dearest to my heart last thing. This time next year are you. Uc champion. yes. I think i think i fight. I fight this summer sometime. I wanna fight three time this year by january summer and fall whether it be next for the ucla title or next for the number one contender spot and Capture the title by the end of the year Then i'm ufc champion by the end of the year. I think i think huckabee will realize that i am. I am the other best lightweight in the entire world. I think the you have c. approaches him. Hey if you want if you want a real challenge if you want if you want a guy who's got every skill possible to be able to Navy cracked the code. That is to be made off. You gotta beat somebody if in your quest for thirty a no so beat chandler if you can So i think i fight could be and i make him twenty nine in chandler by the first fight of twenty twenty two. Is the one and only charles. Do bronx lavera. Who's joining us. From some paulo brazil alongside his translator nando. Charles obi guy though thank you for the time we got it okay. So it's great to talk to you. There's a lot to talk to you about. I let me ask you this. Were you impressed with what dust emporia did to conor mcgregor last saturday which is a much is their an important like you said like he will impress the laker route three Like relegate the fight win four and he could. Were you hoping. Charles that dustin would win. Did you think that there was a better chance for you to kind of move into the title picture with import win. As opposed to a conor mcgregor win. Yeah like he was expecting either one either. One accounts now that he's ready to go since that fight last saturday. Have you or any member of your. Your management team talked to ufc about what they wanna do with you. Next yell they dock the they were expected at. Does i think that he's this his time. And there's nobody else fight solo. He's the guy title right now so to be clear if the have c. Asks you charles what you want next. Who do you want next. You wanna fight dust emporia for the vacant title. Is that what you want. Drain the team. Everybody streaming era you. Friday there's nobody else in in the line saw. Do you think it's time that bieber made off. Let's go of the belt vacates the title if he's not coming back anytime soon. Would you like to see the ufc title away and make the next fight for the vacant title. The undisputed title. She comes on holiday those back on avocado. He's he's he's ready in the fights out by now in Whever gums if he calms quite into in these rating wedding gowns dust. Emporia wants to fight you next. Yeah he's he's a guy that he thinks that's a fair fight for shyness goes never had the title so he's a he's very. He wants to fight. Shots doesn't wants to fight dryden by last week Conner's team said that they won a third fight against us in for the title. Are you at all worried. Because of how popular he is that the ufc's going to do connor verses dustin three for the belt and you'll have to fight someone else in a non title fight like He was he was beaten up. Saw this happen.

"Was former ufc champions. I've done it with a lot them. I've been a perennial top. Ten top fifteen guy at my worst. Even when i lost fights even when i had to pull myself back up and dust myself off. Don't use the word. Hasn't the word the phrase hasn't earned it around me now. I just came into your organization. I just came into the top five. Kick down the door. Knock that a guy in two and a half minutes that you couldn't finish twenty five minutes and i think i've cement the myself as the top guy have. I earned it in the afc yet. No but but if that's the case i'm not going to earn. Ufc to his standards for the ten fights. You know the guys got twenty six points in the afc. At what point do i learn it. So i kind of I kinda. I heard it loud and clear right away and then i started thinking about it and thought man. It's a little bit. It definitely a little bit on the. I'm not gonna use the word disrespectful even though i just did is probably gonna make the headline But it just it kind of is it but it doesn't really matter at this point. I have submitted myself inside the top five but finished the finish. The guy that nobody else thought i was gonna be able to finish. Submit the myself in the top five. And we're gonna. We're gonna see some clarity. you know. i've said yes now to every single opportunity. I said yes to three different opponents in october i said yes to numerous opponents in january ended up being on dan hooker. Matter of fact. I even said yes to another opportunity here in the next couple of weeks gets to try to get some some clarity in you'll. Ufc the white lightweight division. I've showed up from outside or inside the dark horse contender within the next the last couple of months. So you think. I earned whether you think i earned it or not as irrelevant. I'm going to win the world title here in twenty twenty one. What's that opportunity in the next couple of weeks. I said yes to an opportunity i was. I had a phone call. Just said hey. Would you be willing to fight in the next couple of weeks. And i said yes There's a big pay per view coming up. I said yes to it. I knew i wasn't. I wasn't didn't have any names being thrown around necessarily but i knew that it would be somebody by process of elimination. Somebody ranked ahead. Is that happening. it's not happening. I had a twenty four. I had a twenty four ounce bone in rib by sitting in front of me at cain. Prime steakhouse my favorite place on earth. By favorite place to eat on earth. I stopped eating it right then and there. I was on a plane to florida. I landed in florida. Forty eight forty eight hours later. Because i said yes to another opportunity i was ready to stay there and training for the next four straight for the next eight days and then hop on a flight vegas It did not come to This opportunity did not come to fruition. Based on the other person saying no but i said yes. I'm trying to get some clarity in this lightweight. division. I'm trying to i'm trying to strike strike while the iron is hot this. Ufc lightweight division needs a mix of a fresh face a fresh leader. And i'm right here to put myself on the leaderboard. Saying you're back home in nashville. You're at your favorite steakhouse. You're eating you get a call to fight. Is this on the february thirteenth. Pay per view. Okay at this point. I didn't know it needed a new at this point. I didn't know it needed a new co main event. Chris wideman and your i hall right it come to find out it turns out that was it but we you know we know that And i said i was asked. Would you be willing to fight february thirteenth. I without hesitation said yes. Wow and then you got on a plane to ford and then the fight fell through in any came back home. What that's all happen last week. Who the opponent. i you know the opponent. You're just not telling me right me too. I know by process of elimination. Who who they who they were probably talking to your oliveira. I don't know. I mean the ufc ufc's big organization great organization. There's no shortage lightweight. There's only a couple of ahead of me so we'll leave that. Wow and are you bummed. It's not happening. Yeah i'm bummed man. I was ready to step back. The gone continue to climb. The ranks continued to climb the ladder. Because all these other guys wanna sit out and jockey for position now. Listen i understand am i. Am i disappointed absolutely. But do i hold it against anybody. Who's not taken the fights against me. No i'm not listen. Let's just go by. Let's just go down the line real quick for everybody who who doesn't know i signed in september. I said yes to pour a yes to ferguson. In october turns out of said no i turn into the backup for the world title fight then. I wonder if in january names Gets booked against connor Ferguson said no in january keiichi said no in january olivera said no in january. Dan hooker says yes. I fight dan hooker. I'm i'm by no means a yes man. I'm here to stand up for myself. But i'm here to strike while the iron is hot boys. There's you gotta make hay while the sun is shining in the sun is shining on the ufc lightweight division. The most energetic most electrifying. Most shaken up most fun division most deep division in the in the ufc man. and i'm here To have a good time in a said. Yes i'm gonna i'm saying yes while a lot of other guys are saying no but it's It's neither here nor there as i said disappointed. Yes but do i hold it against these guys. Absolutely not so. What are the chances now. This gets moved to the march. Six one the march twenty seven pay per view. There's a few coming up. I is that there is no that and that's not the plant so there's a big difference between saying. Hey listen i'm in shape. I just got done with the training camp. I can leave my family for twelve days. Fourteen days sixteen days go climb. The lightweight ranks go solidify myself as a number one contender. Go make another paycheck. There's a big difference in that and then saying okay. Hey you can fight in march or early april. Now i gotta go leaving for six more weeks listen. I was in training camp back in twenty twenty from march to august than september than from august. October and then from november all the way to january. Man i gotta give my family time my time. My service my love. I want to be right here under this roof here in nashville with them for the next four or five six weeks wanna take some trips. My wife's everything in the world is to travel the world. So we're gonna do some travelling. And i deserve my body deserves a little bit of wrestler but reset But it's going to be a nice fund summer and i will solidify myself either as the world champion of the number one contender in the lightweight. Division tell me crystal-ball honestly what do you think happens for you next and for the title. Who do you think is your next opponent because of what just happened. Because i actually think look. This is the way it works. Sometimes you step up the reward you you don't step up you kind of go a little bit to the back of the line so i can. I could see a scenario where they're gonna even push you even more now because you did this. Yeah i mean. I don't know why i don't know all i know is i'm just. What do you think tokyo Who would you know what you're suggesting. Dust connor versus just a number one contenders. Our you're thinking that would be my favorite. That would that would be my preference. I think i think i think me versus gay. Ci is a fight that everyone wants to see you know. Are you kinda over charles at this point because of this. No i think i mean first of all i never. I never told you whether they offered the fight. Charlie i'm just reading between the lines here. I'll all i know is a name was actually not thrown out to me. All i said was. Yes i would fight on february thirteenth. You said you said yes to anyone anyone on my gosh. They must have like a free shrine built for you bill for me. This is what we do. We're fighters we say yes to fight this what we're supposed to be doing and granted. I realize i'm coming in in a position where i need to say. Yes more than other people and you say yes run. It's all worked out. Well if i had it my way. Yeah it would be. It'll be just. Because i think that's a fight that excites me. I think it's a fight where i match up extremely well against justin gave you a guy who i tangle with a couple of times named eddie alvarez who beat just engage you whenever they whenever they fought for the unofficial title of most violent guy in in mixed martial arts the most violent guy in the ufc. Eddie alvarez won that fight. I think i'm the the new most violent guy in the ufc if she wants to prove that he's going to step into the octagon against me if he wants to wait. There's obviously the olivera fight that he could get. I guess you could also get the poor fight or the winner roy connor. I mean you know. I'm i'm willing to say yes when a lot of guys are saying no..

I is that there is no that and that's not the plant so there's a big difference between saying. Hey listen i'm in shape. I just got done with the training camp. I can leave my family for twelve days. Fourteen days sixteen days go climb. The lightweight ranks go solidify myself as a number one contender. Go make another paycheck. There's a big difference in that and then saying okay. Hey you can fight in march or early april. Now i gotta go leaving for six more weeks listen. I was in training camp back in twenty twenty from march to august than september than from august. October and then from november all the way to january. Man i gotta give my family time my time. My service my love. I want to be right here under this roof here in nashville with them for the next four or five six weeks wanna take some trips. My wife's everything in the world is to travel the world. So we're gonna do some travelling. And i deserve my body deserves a little bit of wrestler but reset But it's going to be a nice fund summer and i will solidify myself either as the world champion of the number one contender in the lightweight. Division tell me crystal-ball honestly what do you think happens for you next and for the title. Who do you think is your next opponent because of what just happened. Because i actually think look. This is the way it works. Sometimes you step up the reward you you don't step up you kind of go a little bit to the back of the line so i can. I could see a scenario where they're gonna even push you even more now because you did this. Yeah i mean. I don't know why i don't know all i know is i'm just. What do you think tokyo Who would you know what you're suggesting. Dust connor versus just a number one contenders. Our you're thinking that would be my favorite. That would that would be my preference. I think i think i think me versus gay. Ci is a fight that everyone wants to see you know. Are you kinda over charles at this point because of this no i think i mean first of all i never. I never told you. They offered the fight charlie. I'm just reading between the lines here. I'll all i know is a name was actually not thrown out to me. All i said was. Yes i would fight on february thirteenth. You said you said yes to anyone anyone on my gosh. They must have like a free shrine built for you built for me. This is what we do. We're fighters we say yes to fight what we're supposed to be doing and granted. I realize i'm coming in in a position where i need to say. Yes more than other people and you say yes run. It's all worked out. Well if i had it my way. Yeah it would be. It'll be just. Because i think that's a fight that excites me. I think it's a fight where i match up extremely well against justin gave you a guy who i tangle with a couple of times named eddie alvarez who beat just engage you whenever they whenever they fought for the unofficial title of most violent guy in in mixed martial arts the most violent guy in the ufc. Eddie alvarez won that fight. I think i'm the the new most violent guy in the ufc if she wants to prove that he's going to step into the octagon against me if he wants to wait..

"To see those two guys fight again. They're one and one each of them with tko So if that happens. I think more than anything. We use clarity in the lightweight division. You know what what is could be doing if he's not coming back. Relinquish the belt. And i'll tell you what things are working out. Perfectly stars are aligning right now with me and another man named just engaging with both of us behind the wheel with our foot on the gas with with all gas no breaks headed towards a collision course inside of the us gone. That would be an awesome fight. That's a fight that i think the stars have aligned perfectly to happen. We're obviously the clear clear number. One contenders me him in all our are all clear number one contenders justin gates coming off of a loss Finish beating. Tony ferguson me. Finish dan hooker man. There's no shortage of great lightweights in this division. No shortage of great names in this division. I'd like for my name to be attached to that you have seen by weight title fight. We'll see what happens. Okay so As a follow up do you think it's time they take the belt off habib respectfully just because he he's very clear i think about what he wants to do and that's not fight again and i think everyone should respect his reason. The next like the next time dust and fights. Do you think that should be for the vacant title regardless of opponent. Do you think he's earned that a side or b side of a title fix. It should be for the vacant title at this point or do you think they should keep the belt on for at least another year to give them a little more time. He has okay so your first question. They should pull. I don't ever want to use the word strip or really. Obviously khabib is. The greatest of all time could be deserves he. He's he's the the lightweight champion but he has made it clear. Yes he's not coming back. It's already been a quarter of a year. It's been going on for months since he said i'm not coming back. They had kind of the teas whether or not he's coming back. Definitely saw something spectacular romy. He saw something spectacular dustin. It still wasn't enough for him to come back. Charleston lavar look spectacular back in december. I mean at some point. He's got he's got to admit i'm not coming back. Dana is going to need to admit to himself that that could be is not coming back and we need to move on with the light division in a as you said. Respectful manner nam. So i think yes. That title should be up for grabs a very soon. As far as poor goes the hard part about four. Eight is at this point. I don't know if they're willing to put a title on the line with A or connor fight. Obviously that's all up to you see but that fights probably going to happen. I mean you can't necessarily fault. Dust emporia for taking the the big time fight against connor. But the problem with that is you're essentially you're essentially conceding that you don't want to fight for the title next if they don't make that for the title which i don't know if they will probably won't so dustin will be conceding. Okay i'm gonna take the big fight. The money fight to connor fight over the title. So maybe it could be me and whoever for the title me and me and Olivera so it's a hard question. And i can't really answer it directly because i can pour you can choose to fight for the title next or he can choose to take the money big site man if he chooses that. Then we keep. We could get some clarity. In the lightweight. Division put a title on. Somebody's waste. And then i can defend it sometime in the fall how you how would you feel if they did poor versus connor for the belt for the vacant title man. This is a. I don't know i'm operating from the standpoint that like i said i'm on borrowed time right now. I'm enjoying all of this. This is so much fun this is a. This is a new time in a new time in my career. A new birth. Of who. I am and what i'm doing so i don't really have time to sit to sit back and let that bother me if they did. Listen who's the biggest name in combat sports conor mcgregor far who is number one lightweight contender and proven himself. Dust emporia has earned the right over the last twenty eight years As long as they've been building this company to make decisions that a lot of people don't like make decisions that maybe it's it's contrary to popular opinion. So if they did. I wouldn't be mad if they if they don't understand why If i don't get the next title shot. I understand why So i'm just kind of taking in in stride. I will be indifferent about that decision. All was about to make myself nuclear number one contender in a car crash. Just to gauge you okay. Did you happen to see dustin response when he was asked about potentially fighting you next and if so what did you make of it i did. It was a little disheartening. You know i mean. Here's what i would say. Say this the most respectful way possible. The this whole like earning it thing. The kid has an jammer has earned it. Michael has earned it earned it. It's like listen man. Yeah i'm new to the ufc. But i'm not new to the sport you know i'm going on thirty fights here. In the next couple of fights. I got twenty seven fights of hand to hand combat mono e mono one on one of the unified unified rules of mixed martial arts. Maybe it wasn't in an octagon. Maybe it wasn't in the same cage that you have fought in twentysomethings times. But i've done it. And i've done it with some of the best of them i've done..

"The greatest guys and gals in the sport. Listen it is much harder to step into hand to hand combat with a person that you were supposed to beat then it is to step inside the the octagon cage with the person that is supposed to be listened when you're an underdog you got nothing to lose. Listen i've i've spent twelve years in this sport. I've made a great living. I've got a wife that loves me. A son that love me family loves me. My god loves me. I am a hole in happy hearted person so winning my ufc debut winning the ufc gold. All that stuff is great. But it's it's not what really makes me tick. But over the last twelve years stepping in the hand to hand combat with people that. I'm supposed to finish in the first round. You know when i was when i'm a perennial top ten lightweight and i'm fighting a guy that maybe no one has heard of and i'm supposed to finish them in the first round in in finishing him not in a dominant fashion or not looking phenomenal is is falling short and people start to wonder if he lost a step those tough. Those are scary scenarios. Those are things you get nervous about me. Step into the octagon. In front of tens of millions of people on a conor mcgregor pay per view co main event against dan hooker. Top five lightweight who everyone has a ton of respect for. It was kind of a win win situation. You know I feel like at this point is a win win. Situation wasn't supposed to be here. You know i was supposed to people's eyes to sail off into the sunset is the best bello. Four fighter ever live and now i got a great contact with a great organization that with a great opportunity ahead of me and it was the easiest. Most calm and confident. I've ever been in my entire life so much so that it was a little bit little bit weird. I was waiting for henry. Hoops or kami by my corn. And be like hey man. Why are you laughing piling. So what you're about to get into a fight in front of millions of people like get serious and i just couldn't. I was serious. But i was a joyful. Happy serious it was just it was phenomenal. I can't wait to go do it again. I i'm ready to do it again. And i have proven that a be honest when you were dreaming of the fight. Envisioning the fight. Did you think it would end that soon. Like were you expecting a first round finish. I always hope for a first round. Finish but i never expected Especially a guy like dan hook. I mean dan hook it takes. It takes dan hookers opponents in average of one hundred twenty two significant strikes to beat him while it took me seventeen and drop them after number. Four or five put them on the ground and then hit him with a couple. He's never been knocked out to the head He's been knocked out to the body but he's never been knocked out to the head. The guys barely ever finish. Never been finished in the first round so to to say that. I expected that to happen. I'd be lying to you. I knew i had a tough tough test in front of me. I knew how. Tall order both figuratively. Everybody kept talking about the height difference. I think it was. I think it was perfect height difference. I looked so short compared to him because he's just such a tall guy. He says he's listening to six foot. I think he's listening to taller than that. So we knew there was. It was tough. It was a tough road ahead of us but Man it it worked out perfectly. I did not expect. But i'm glad it did. I took zero damage ready to go stepping and everything about it was incredible. But can you just do me this one favor please. Can you just stop with the backflip. Just are you are you done with it. I mean i won't ever do that again. I oh my gosh. Just just for the record. I have never in my entire life. Donate backflip off of the top of the cage. I decided to do it first. Time no practice in front of tens of millions of people as the co main event on regardless paper. You could went really really great what you did. Thank god or it could went really really bad so i'll keep it. I'll keep it on. The game is from now on. Okay yeah i mean it was just like everything from the the actual flip to. The landing was somewhat terrifying. You got it now. You could get it out of your system and then what about that. Promise we just talk about that problem. I mean how can you just tell me. So you're just just for my ego. You're listening to dc and i mean the number one showed espn and uc is talking about how your ric flair. You're the champion coming from another organization. And then you what do you do you go. Look at the promo you go find it. And then you try to emulate and you give it your own little spin which i appreciate it because i know you're not a big pro wrestling fan right. Did you even know about this. No i'm not. I didn't and and yeah i mean i. I was watching the greatest. The greatest show on earth in hawaii. You know it just avid avid listener. Sing watching the guys and because it completely made sense..

"Once again on what you accomplished. Wwe could i ask the last. What is at nine days. Have you ever experienced anything like this. Does this feel different than anything in the past. Even the victory over holloway. You know dude. This victory more people have reached out to me than ever before and Whether that's podcasts. Request interview requests Just good messages. You know people write me emails. Tell me the inspired them or to keep chasing my dreams keep pushing. It's all positive stuff. I'm very thankful for everyone. I know i haven't really addressed everyone on on a big scale like that. But i'm getting all the messages you know. I'm still digesting everything from from this past week and and getting caught up with my home in my life in louisiana. But i see everything and i appreciate the love for sure to everyone who has reached out. Obviously you appreciate it. But i'm just wondering. Is it at all overwhelming like all of a sudden you have this probably like an avalanche of people coming at you. It is but at the same time you know if you let it be. But i i protect my energy man. I don't spread myself too much. And i have to make sure that i continue doing that. Isn't you know Everybody wants you know everybody wants something ran only have so much to give so. I just gotta protect my energy. How many times have you watched the fight. At this point we wash it. You know because. I fought early in the morning. Abu dhabi and i didn't leave till later that night so i had probably twelve hours between the fight and Heading to the airport so we went back to my hotel room with my coaches and we watch we watch it there and then when i got home i re washed it with my brother. So i've seen it a few times. And i mean obviously you've had a tremendous career at this point he benefit you know ended today. It's a hall of fame career. would you say though. That was the greatest moment of your career. Did i think you know beating max. Holloway belt was was stuff to say man this kind of been the travel and the all the people reaching out and stuff. It's kind of just kind of been numb to it. All the max holloway. Think flying back with that belt going through the airport with the belt coming back home to louisiana that that felt bigger to me for some reason okay And and you have this task in front of you. That meant something to six and a half years ago. You talked open. Loss changed your life and your perspective on fighting and whatnot. Did you feel number one. Did you feel more anxious than normal. Considering this is your chance to right this wrong to to put that one to bed you know you have to talk about it for so long. Did you feel like an in the days leading up to the fight. Did it feel at all different than some of your other fights because of what he represented to your life in career. Though i knew i knew what a win would mean to my career and i knew how big of a superstar he is in. All eyes will be on us. But i don't think that added anything. Okay yeah what about the aftermath. I'm sure you've thought about exacting revenge. Did it feel as good. More less than what you had had dreamed about I'm not sure it felt good to to to win for sure that felt good and win in that fashion. You know to knock him out to stop him Nobody's done that. So that felt good. But i honestly haven't looked back at it or bad and go back to the room and think of this whole thing like got you back. I still i still don't think that okay You have been at you and your your corner have been. You know. Applauded for the great game plan. Many different levels like the take down the clench. Obviously the calf cakes were huge. In setting up the finish in the second round was was was the take down and the clinch work especially at the beginning of the fight. Was that part of the plan or was that something that just presented itself early on. You took advantage of it. Well we know. I'm i'm me and my team know i'm dangerous in dirty boxing In the clinch. So i thought i'd be other landed. Shot staring we also thought we'd make him strain and get his arms full of blood and maybe take away some of the pop. When we got back to the middle of the octagon and the take down the plan was to be a mixed martial artists. It what the plan wasn't go out. There kick his leg Get a takedown. It was to do whatever's available to us all my weapons. That was the main thing preached throughout this whole training camp took to kick when i saw an opening to punch when on opening throw elbows to use my take downs to use my trips to just show my full arsenal and try to beat him. Everywhere chip chip chip away until an opportunity presented itself to to end the fight and in this one. It just Present itself a little sooner than i expected. Were you surprised that know that lead leg was as exposed as it was throughout even after those initial kicks like him to adjust.
