First you had knee surgery recently tells what happened there and how you're feeling. I had a meniscus problem back in the day. I only other real surgery besides the shin. More deal went through. So a little trim discus and had slipped and somewhere along the line than it was it was are the reason I pulled out of that Chris wideman flight, it was was creating unstability and it was catching. To heal itself or wouldn't wouldn't do it? So we just trimmed up cleaned it up. And so we wouldn't have a problem as we got deeper in training camp run and any issues, and how's it feeling now? And in two weeks. Now, it's still a little stiff, but it's on track. Had a schedule outside. I was thinking Jim July is a more fitting as it gives me more time to get everything. Like, okay. So you are fighting jam block. What's in July? Rachel, I six international fight week. This is this is to be long ways away everything works by. Okay. Why are you moving up to five? Ultimately, why did you make that decision? Because. Eighty five killing me. I'm like I said before I've never felt so drained. Four or five it's getting harder and harder to make the weight and. Man. I felt like absolute hell going into last night. I didn't recovery didn't get my strength back and. Thrown into. I'm gonna wanna make the move for a long time. And now obviously out of the way it makes it. Clear choice for myself. I wanna move up. I don't feel like rate or strengths is an issue would be bigger guys. And so. I'm feel good. I feel fast athletic nothing. My carrying extra weight really two twenty right now. And so you think you're done what eighty-five you'll never fight again. I don't see it. Okay. Not seeing lecture. Yeah. And we've seen a ton of guys move up and look really good. We saw Pettus move up on on Saturday. So I think the days of extremely cutting should come to an end. Let me ask you about Corey Anderson because we had him on the show last week. And he told us that he was offered a fight against you. And he didn't think the fight made sense. It's a step backwards for him. You're not ranked. Yeah. What what do you make of a core? You had to say did you hear any of his comments unless backwards scared to fight? The truth. What's the truest guy as come on? Come on kore-, mowing guys. I mean, I don't know where he has the grounds that he deserves what it needs. You know, I'm I'm number two middle way in the world. Former euro C N strikeforce champion what is Cory done. So I think he should be. They should jump in laboratory. But I don't know what he thinks he really deserves because he's a couple of fights. So be nothing against them. But you know, that's it was a fine UFC wanted if I liked but never will move forward. I got another guy that's ranked ahead of him and on put myself in position. So this is what it is. This is what who would take the fun of the time. And this wanna do so just because you were offered Corey right in and you were down for that fight. He was the one who said no, I think like five times and said no five times really they kept coming back. Wow. Quasi james. There's there's multiple multiple asks. I'd say when they're pardon. Facing his Sobia. Do you like the fight better than the Corey fight or vice versa?.

"It is not like reinventing the wheel. There is a time in a place for everything Corey. Anderson. I've never met him. He's a fellow wrestler. I'm a fan I cheer for him. He's a tough guy. He seems like a perfectly sweet guy to watch Corey Anderson continually stub his toe and skin his knee and not have any idea that he's doing it and not have his managers or his team around him. Grab him and sit him down and tell him all the things that he is doing wrong is not only baffling to me. It is frustrating to me K. Daniel Cormie has made more headlines lately talking about his retirement than anything else that he has done in the cage because he is on top. Because people do not want to see him retire because he has some mega fights out there, and because he has a world championship. He is a nominally. He is in a special place for another fighter to see that. And think they're going to get headlines. And in this case, I'm talking about Corey Anderson coming out and talking about when he wants to retire. It is a suckers. Move on the highest of levels first off most people don't know. You're fighting Ron Rodney Dangerfield did a wonderful and very funny. Bit one time when he said, you know, what I retired and nobody knew and there's a lot of truth to that. There were many guys that will be in this sport. And they will go away. And nobody's going to know the difference. There are guys that will be released from contracts, and nobody will know they were released their guys that might have one is recently is this weekend or have a fight coming up as recently as next week. And nobody's gonna know. So you have to pick your times the last thing a promoter wants is a guy that doesn't want to do it. The last thing a promoter is going to get behind and put money behind a marketing machine behind a favorable fighter two behind and. Yes, there are politics involved in this art is a guy who's about to leave. The last thing that a fan is going to buy a t-shirt of. And follow on social media in building -ticipant for is a guy who was about to leave. The last thing that a sponsor is gonna throw a goddamn dollar. At is a guy who is about to leave. If you fighters are seeing Daniel Cormie get a lot of run out of talking about retirement. It is because he is a star. He is marketable. He's a box office proven draw and it's not time for him to go. That is not a sign to then go copy that recipe. If you want the hardest fights for the lowest pay with no sponsorship come out and tell the world you're about to retire have a great weekend and tell next Wednesday, I'm Chelsea, son. And and you have.

"But do you feel that little bit of pressure that may be getting a win and having a stamp on that wind can even bump you up a little bit more? Absolutely. I mean, it's all about performances in UFC. I mean, you guys jump over time. But I think I think that that that stamp on. It is is kinda my trademark, man. I like to, you know, have no doubt in the minds of anyone watching the fight that I won that fight. I like what you said about one in its stuff against Jon Jones wanting that fight but going back a couple of months ago when Daniel Cormet was the champ there, did you feel like that as well? Like, you would have preferred to face a guy like John Jones. Or was it just a matter who who the champion was like back. Then was it. I want pizza Cormie, or did you always want to kind of have this this fight with John jobs? Jones. I started fighting twenty twelve so I mean look at that Jones the guy then and I've been kind of training for me in time. Well, yeah. That's kinda. Yeah. Eight. Yeah. So this is what I said, I think it was yesterday. Or that before I felt like we know Smith got next. He's playing the game. All right. He's playing the John Jones Arcadian I'm going to school here with this reference and Corey Anderson put quarter up there. He says I got the winner. But what I did mention in this before I even knew we were going to book was I go be careful with a guy like Dominic is because if raise wins he make it in front of for Anderson. You know what I mean, coy Anderson? He's sweat his next fight. Now, Corey Anderson is wife's gonna give birth around March all respect there. He doesn't want to rush into a fight or anything. Exactly. But that you know, this is a business. And this is a sport that doesn't wait for anybody. So coriander says X move will have to be very very calculated. He'll have to have a good performance the guy like Dominic Reyes is can come in and snag that. And you know, what I'm starting to get excited about two five again just talking about some of these names out there still is wreckage. We had a great debut from. Johnny walker. So hopefully, two thousand nineteen is the return of light heavyweight. I agree. I hope so I mean, I hope to bring it bring it bring the life back as well, man. I've always looked at light heavyweight in really been like, well guys are pretty powerful. They could use some serious damage and division kinda fell off. And I'm happy to be part of the new riding crop of heavyweight out there ready to put it on the line for you guys. Dominic Ray is our guest here on MA junkie radio. He's facing volcanoes the mirror. You've see fight night.

"Best case scenario, when do they think that you could come back? It's not even a conversation point. Yeah. I mean immediately right away as soon as the fights over like before I even knew that like you have to be so stationary with an injury like the house talking to my coaches, and I was like, okay. Well, we could get on the March second card in. What is it that is that Phoenix or something or even even in January thinking if this thing goes fast, but you know, it just right now it's just so indefinite as far as what it's gonna do. I don't know. I haven't had anything like this ever happening. We were just talking to Corey Anderson news on the card, and he was very frustrated with what happened at two thirty three. I know you are equally as frustrated I would imagine with the with the weekend ending that way. That's just the week that you just wanna forget, right. It was awful. I know that there was like this elephant in the room for all of us. Like every time we all got around each other. Like, I know we wanted to talk about it. But it was kinda like they we realized Kate. You don't fight you don't get paid. But at the same time embarrassing, it was embarrassing to be like blatantly shown that like we actually don't really matter like, John Jones matters, pay per view matters. Like, whatever that you know, it is is rough. It was hard. You know? It's like we put everything into this sport like, including our integrity, and is definitely tested all week long. Just little things that was constantly going wrong. Like, you guys really actually didn't even see the half of it you in, you know, trying to keep your mind, right? Like I felt like I did a good job. I stayed focus. I stayed ready into me that was you know, that was challenge. It was the test does. And I felt like I got through it, you know. So again for. To end the way it did. It was just like seriously like after this will week after this whole camp. But it was tough. It was it was tough not be offended. You know, it was tough to have people not know what to do because they're looking for. Hey, we come to LA. Do you want us to do this that that they you know, wasted money? And and meanwhile, like, I can't help you figure out what to do I need to figure out what I think. Oh, we lost her there for a second. We'll reconnect with cat here in a moment. Appreciate her candor. Also her dog I can relate to that situation. Might be a lot of my dog. Who just never stops? And is always going and being really annoying actually gone to fight with my middle son yesterday 'cause I called the dog annoying. And he said, she's not annoying your annoying. I was like what you're siding with the dog over me. I gave you life. Anyhow, fascinating stuff from cats and Gano there as you can see if you're watching you for just listening to it. It listening to the interview she is wearing an eye patch. Over her right eye. And as of right now. No real time table set for when she can return. But that is very scary stuff. I was thinking of Mike winkle, John when it happened who is the coach of John Jones who famously was poked in the eye by a kick. And unfortunately, lost his eye as a result. It doesn't sound like it was as bad for cat, which is tremendous news. But very scary. Unfortunately, as big John McCarthy noted on social media immediately following the fight because you can't will that's weird. Because you can't by the way, if we can't connect on Skype. Yeah. Just to phone. Okay. We believe our phone died. So we're trying to reconnect with their that'd be horrible horrible timing. But because you can't kick closed, right? The pretend this is my foot because you can't kick with closed toes. There's really nothing that you can do..

"I wanna give a shoutout to Capozza absolutely hitman deserves behind the scenes I wrote this to him in public and people thought that I was being facetious. What did you say? Well, he wrote something I think it was about my fight of the year. Now's like, okay. As long as I have your vote of confidence. I feel good or maybe it's my round of the year like. He said I see where you're coming from. You said would occur Romero round three was around. But I see where you're coming from. And I made me feel better his Whitaker around. They go back and watch. No, no. I'm sure that I remember I remember that fight. I don't particularly remember that round. But Ferguson Pettus was conventional wisdom. I feel like okay. Well, let me. Yes. Capozza behind the scenes actually sent him. I picks because that's how much I spent vetted him. I sent him every single one of my pigs. It tell me if I'm crazy about any of these. So I really appreciate I mean, if you don't follow him grab a under score hitman to me. He is just unbelievable joked about him before watches Dubai. He does watch it. But the guys just he is value to the line. Yeah. He's he. Yes. He truly is. Remember that one time that he got taken off Twitter was a disaster. Does has just boy. Lynch, but they rectified it. Rectify this shadow to shadow Tikka Capozza for sure. Yes. So he helped me out. So once he said, I was good. He signed off on the picks fair enough. I'll I'll I'll back down on that. But yeah, I mean, how about Corey Anderson maybe he can get some love next year instead of getting shafted, by Anderson, I always has a bone to pick. And then he tells me that he held back on the on the gifts yak. But what a what an interview today? He's good. He he's a great hair. Yeah. I enjoy him. I like when he comes his calm confidence. Me resonates like he just needs to show you it as a need to to be flashy. I'm talking personality. I'm not talking fight wise. He is he is who he is. And he's very confident in his abilities. He knows where he needs to go. So that came through to me today. All right anything else feel like, you know, the first two weeks of the year. Always very quiet. I think that the major promotions don't put on offense because NFL playoffs are on Saturday night. Hangover a New Year's kinda like you gotta get to speed basically get a two week off season anime. First and second week of January. It's very nice. So there's not much going on this weekend of note next week. And of course, it all ramps up. You have seen ESPN one has their debut event elephant has an event there's just a ton going on. And then of course, the following week there's towards cetera et cetera. But I say enjoy other weekend, go out. Yeah. Fun have a life. Yeah. Have friends have stations. Yeah. Do outdoors. Yeah. I love it. I'm in. All right media. We're going out. No corporate Jake back. They're very nervous. He's like he keeps giving me. The countdown who exactly is worried about this Jake who also. Erika's shine. We cut them off on New Year's Eve, I gave corporate Jake's mom, a shot is that what you're about to say. I was going to say that. But also like we were talking about the awards. We got a highlight the trophy here. I did didn't I do that earlier? You did earlier in the show. I gave her a shot on national television. Mom, mama level. Which was very very. Yes. Did she see it? She did was she watching live. She was at around like ten thirty after dinner, not live. Well, she texted me was like I see him holding up the trophy ten thirty or she was watching. I said rewind and you'll see him say your name. Oh, that's amazing. I love the trophy. I really do. It's it's simple. And by the way, a lot of fighters had asked me for it. So I hope she's ready to produce at least eighteen of these. The match Connor. Standing there. It's amazing. Also wanna give shout out to the PIN social media team who made those pictures? Yeah. For every word because a lot of the fighters have I appreciated them and put them out. So thank you very much everyone.

"I wanna give a shoutout to Capozza absolutely hitman deserves behind the scenes I wrote this to him in public and people thought that I was being facetious. What did you say? Well, he wrote something I think it was about my fight of the year. Now's like, okay. As long as I have your vote of confidence. I feel good or maybe it's my round of the year like. He said I see where you're coming from. You said would occur Romero round three was around. But I see where you're coming from. And I made me feel better his Whitaker around. They go back and watch. No, no. I'm sure that I remember I remember that fight. I don't particularly remember that round. But Ferguson Pettus was conventional wisdom. I feel like okay. Well, let me. Yes. Capozza behind the scenes actually sent him. I picks because that's how much I spent vetted him. I sent him every single one of my pigs. It tell me if I'm crazy about any of these. So I really appreciate I mean, if you don't follow him grab a under score hitman to me. He is just unbelievable joked about him before watches Dubai. He does watch it. But the guys just he is value to the line. Yeah. He's he. Yes. He truly is. Remember that one time that he got taken off Twitter was a disaster. Does has just boy. Lynch, but they rectified it. Rectify this shadow to shadow Tikka Capozza for sure. Yes. So he helped me out. So once he said, I was good. He signed off on the picks fair enough. I'll I'll I'll back down on that. But yeah, I mean, how about Corey Anderson maybe he can get some love next year instead of getting shafted, by Anderson, I always has a bone to pick. And then he tells me that he held back on the on the gifts yak. But what a what an interview today? He's good. He he's a great hair. Yeah. I enjoy him. I like when he comes his calm confidence. Me resonates like he just needs to show you it as a need to to be flashy. I'm talking personality. I'm not talking fight wise. He is he is who he is. And he's very confident in his abilities. He knows where he needs to go. So that came through to me today. All right anything else feel like, you know, the first two weeks of the year. Always very quiet. I think that the major promotions don't put on offense because NFL playoffs are on Saturday night. Hangover a New Year's kinda like you gotta get to speed basically get a two week off season anime. First and second week of January. It's very nice. So there's not much going on this weekend of note next week. And of course, it all ramps up. You have seen ESPN one has their debut event elephant has an event there's just a ton going on. And then of course, the following week there's towards cetera et cetera. But I say enjoy other weekend, go out. Yeah. Fun have a life. Yeah. Have friends have stations. Yeah. Do outdoors. Yeah. I love it. I'm in. All right media. We're going out. No corporate Jake back. They're very nervous. He's like he keeps giving me. The countdown who exactly is worried about this Jake who also. Erika's shine. We cut them off on New Year's Eve, I gave corporate Jake's mom, a shot is that what you're about to say. I was going to say that. But also like we were talking about the awards.

"Best case scenario, when do they think that you could come back? It's not even a conversation point. Yeah. I mean immediately right away as soon as the fights over like before I even knew that like you have to be so stationary with an injury like the house talking to my coaches, and I was like, okay. Well, we could get on the March second card in. What is it that is that Phoenix or something or even even in January thinking if this thing goes fast, but you know, it just right now it's just so indefinite as far as what it's gonna do. I don't know. I haven't had anything like this ever happening. We were just talking to Corey Anderson news on the card, and he was very frustrated with what happened at two thirty three. I know you are equally as frustrated I would imagine with the with the weekend ending that way. That's just the week that you just wanna forget, right. It was awful. I know that there was like this elephant in the room for all of us. Like every time we all got around each other. Like, I know we wanted to talk about it. But it was kinda like they we realized Kate. You don't fight you don't get paid. But at the same time embarrassing, it was embarrassing to be like blatantly shown that like we actually don't really matter like, John Jones matters, pay per view matters. Like, whatever that you know, it is is rough. It was hard. You know? It's like we put everything into this sport like, including our integrity, and is definitely tested all week long. Just little things that was constantly going wrong. Like, you guys really actually didn't even see the half of it you in, you know, trying to keep your mind, right? Like I felt like I did a good job. I stayed focus. I stayed ready into me that was you know, that was challenge. It was the test does. And I felt like I got through it, you know. So again for. To end the way it did. It was just like seriously like after this will week after this whole camp. But it was tough. It was it was tough not be offended. You know, it was tough to have people not know what to do because they're looking for. Hey, we come to LA. Do you want us to do this that that they you know, wasted money? And and meanwhile, like, I can't help you figure out what to do I need to figure out what I think. Oh, we lost her there for a second. We'll reconnect with cat here in a moment. Appreciate her candor. Also her dog I can relate to that situation. Might be a lot of my dog. Who just never stops? And is always going and being really annoying actually gone to fight with my middle son yesterday 'cause I called the dog annoying. And he said, she's not annoying your annoying. I was like what you're siding with the dog over me. I gave you life. Anyhow, fascinating stuff from cats and Gano there as you can see if you're watching you for just listening to it. It listening to the interview she is wearing an eye patch. Over her right eye. And as of right now. No real time table set for when she can return. But that is very scary stuff. I was thinking of Mike winkle, John when it happened who is the coach of John Jones who famously was poked in the eye by a kick. And unfortunately, lost his eye as a result. It doesn't sound like it was as bad for cat, which is tremendous news. But very scary. Unfortunately, as big John McCarthy noted on social media immediately following the fight because you can't will that's weird. Because you can't by the way, if we can't connect on Skype. Yeah. Just to phone. Okay. We believe our phone died. So we're trying to reconnect with their that'd be horrible horrible timing. But because you can't kick closed, right? The pretend this is my foot because you can't kick with closed toes. There's really nothing that you can do..

"Yeah. And then he doesn't get the fight. Yeah. And remember when he was stripped, oh when he's ready to come back. He's gonna get. Oh, gosh. I don't know. So I look at that car and everyone's like geeking out about the card, but there's a bit of a cloud for me yet. But at cars, pretty pretty magical. I'm excited about that one. What about the decision to go with Smith over Anders? Yeah. On three fight winning streaks. Both have fought similar competition. Terms of ranking, although the volcanoes Demere win for Anthony Smith, probably gives them the highest rag. If you if you added the three rankings together, but at the had three finishes Cory what I think it comes down to. I think it comes down to Anthony Smith has the momentum on the basis of the names. He's beaten and Corey made a great Corey Anderson made a great point today on talking about look, those names are legends of the sport. But they're not the guys who are in their prime right now. And there is a tendency to equate those winds to something else, but the win over volcanoes. Amir and being able to finish the fight is what I think is significant to me it feels like Anthony Smith has the momentum. He has the wind at a sales. It feels like Hori Anderson doesn't now I think Corey Anderson is right there. I think that with a statement win. There's no doubt he gets into position. And it also seems like John Jones game to give him that opportunity that he's been campaigning for. But to me Smith has the momentum and shot should be his so the three opponents for Corey Anderson. Patrick Cummins to share the TV all solid wins shot Evans shogun who will Demere. Yeah. Comparable to me. It is because of the strength of demure win. Yeah. And this kind of global to me are kind of equal both former title challengers known. I I think. Okay. So then okay. And then we've got shotgun. Latifi? I think it's more that the show gun and the Rashaad winds are lower on the spectrum road out about it too. But to me that used Amir win is the one that puts it above. And also, we said it it's finishes. Anthony Smith is going up to five and finishing fights and making it look good. It's hard to it's hard to argue at style points. When when all things are equal Anthony Smith has thirteen losses on his record. He up until last year when he turned it around was somewhat of a journeyman out all over the world went on it feels like he's the ultimate David going up against Goliath. Like, this is a true rocky story. And it feels like this is almost the way John Jones has to lose. Right. Like, I almost vision. Shocking moments like Anthony Smith just pulled off the greatest upset, you know, the guy who was never in the division and all of a sudden he comes. I mean, his name is just yeah. And he's very sort of middle of the road. Right. It almost seems poetic would definitely be shocking. I believe with let me see I think odds are out on this one..
