"curtis blaydes" Discussed on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani

"Let's go right into this thing. Let us discuss the heavyweight division in the ufc because it was on full display last week. It'll be on display this weekend as well and next month with the title on the line but let's focus on ufc vegas nineteen and derek lewis's incredible ferocious and absolutely vicious knockout of curtis blades. In the main event after a really strong opening round from curtis blades lewis delivers one of the nastiest knockout. You will ever see in the second round coming through with the biggest main event upset in the. Us's michael bisbee became. The ufc middleweight champion. A you have c. One ninety nine knocking out. Luke rocco network going to begin with you kind sir. Nice and easy your reaction to a massive win for derek lewis less than a week ago surprise. Surprise i guess is where i would start out. I picked curtis blades. I thought he would be able to at least take down. Derek lewis enough to win the fight and lo and behold. He didn't take him down at all. So that was probably actually the biggest surprise about the fight What wasn't surprising. That derek lewis after being down in the first round after losing that second round blades was doing really well on the feet. And then derek lewis just did what they're glues does. Big are uppercut. Is the fight so relatively shocking shocking result in the sense that derek one. I was fairly confident that blades. Who get it done. But not so not so surprising that derek lewis got another highlight reel nocco assay. We kind of got your instant reaction after the fight on saturday on the post by now you've talked about on the side but now they've had some time to let it all sink in and spoken about it on on different platforms. How big was this win. For derek lewis in the in the grand scheme of things that heavyweight. I mean anytime you win in the top five especially when the heavyweight title is only is within less than a month of your big victory. It's a big thing. I just think. Derek lewis is one of those fighters that he said it himself like the title is great but he's fighting for that paycheck. You got the bonus. You got bulbs paychecks. He's back taxes. Which is obviously still reeling from the massive blizzard. So i'm sure he's going to do great things with that. We saw what he did when the hurricane happened. Driving around saving people so For a normal fighter getting this big win on a big platform so close to not just the title fight probably another a contender fight with jazzy. No rose straight and cyril gone. They're going to be like. Oh this is great for my career. I'm looking at it from the perspective of derek. Lewis wear awesome. I got both of my paychecks and fifty thousand dollars more so yeah massive night for the black beast again. Prize fighters derek lewis through to be one of the most reliable prize fighters on the ufc roster. So yeah ten attempt forms across the board from the heavyweight contender to sort of build upon that jose. Is it time to look at derek. Lewis is not just a fun prizefighter but a serious threat to the title. It's not like he wasn't before but people always view. Derek is this you know fun. Follow on social media this hilarious guy this quote machine who can land knock on at any point of a fight as watch the sport at all outside of his fight weeks doesn't really care about titles but it seems like he's putting together now i know he's added some pieces to his team. You saw lauren. Murphy's husband joe in his corner who's excellent jujitsu coach in practitioner. His own right time to stop looking. Derek lewis as the funny guy with the with the best social media. Game outside of darren taylor. Moore is a legit threat to st bay francis and gado john jones. Whoever is in this division. I would say derek lewis has already the best twitter follow third. Darren tools jason lewis at this point. Because derek lewis is winning fighting and being funny darren till is only doing one of those things. So i i would say derek lows. Of course you have been taken seriously if he touches your jaw you have to take him seriously because you're probably not going to remember when after the referee pulls him off of you so i don't know the answer to this because we haven't seen we don't know we don't know that's like saying oh francis in who is putting together all of these this team to make him a complete fire. All of his fights are like less than two minutes long. So we just don't know for all we know. Derek lewis is the best gogo planet practitioner. It all of the ufc. We're just never going to see it because at the second touches you you die. So if you fight someone like steep bay That is obviously a master game. Planner i think that's better. That's that'll be a better gauge of derek. lewis skills. because we've seen him fight dan mccormick. Who is the definition of a complete mixed martial arts and that wasn't a great night for derek lewis. Yes he took that on like Real short notice to only a month after he got that beatdown he did win. Let's not forget volkov. Put it on their clothes until again. Derek lewis touched his jaw and killed a man on live television. So yeah i don't know. Tb all say. I know that's a cop out. But i don't think anyone knows i think everyone will agree with.

"curtis blaydes" Discussed on Five Rounds with Brett Okamoto

"Point. We we don't know well. Dc was pushing for you. He said when when you're fell through. He said you should fight john. I didn't think full disclosure. I didn't think that was going to happen. Because i think they're saving john for the title fight because they don't want and then stumble on and you can't capitalize on it. I'm not going on. That would be a hell of a fight article win. I could win a but yeah they will pop of her not to waste on a guy by me Iq said use them for the tower. Where the money's at i in versus me. It's not a lot of money embers. Who has the belt for a lot of money. By the way how many fights left for you on your deal. This is number February eight so two more including this. Okay so things are about to get interesting for you. Also also all right. Will you deserve it. Thank you for the time. I know you're about the head out. I appreciate it. Good luck to you in las vegas this weekend of course on saturday. Thanks as always thank you. I appreciate it as always all right. Great stuff there from curtis razor blades. You know. I do really appreciate when someone is honest about the state of their career. You know he could be like so many others and say it's bs at john. Jones is gonna get a title shot before me. He is not saying matt. I appreciate the fact that he also not saying. Hey i'm gonna try to change my style to be exciting. No it's on my ponant to stop me from what i do best. I loved and also i liked that. He's not walking back. His fighter pay comment so in case you missed it before the alexander. Volkov fight in june you know. He was vocal about fighter pay. He feels like fighters. Don't make enough. I agree with him and after his fight against volkov wasn't all that exciting dana white was very critical. Essentially saying hey. You can't be this vocal about their pay in produced fights like that. I personally don't think one has anything to do with the other. I think the fighter pay structure is the real issue here. But alas i digress. And he could've walked back. He did it and i think it's amazing that he hasn't had a conversation with dana. How's that possible. He's had some big wins. Remember that win over ouster over him. Also ovarian probably at. This point makes five six seven times more than curtis blades. This guy annihilated ouster over in chicago in june of two thousand eighteen. He deserves a lot more. He's on the cusp of being the number one contender at heavyweight big fight against derrick lewis. I'm looking forward to it. And i think this being in a smaller cage very much. Favors curtis blades will see the saturday. Espn plus you know the drill and by the way the full conversation is Is over on the espn mma youtube channel. You can see all our stuff there. Were doing a lot of great stuff over there. I highly suggest you check it out all right so like i said we got another busy week of may coming up. Hey how about. Lfa one hundred shows this friday.

Make the week easy jokes. Like my balls or hot stuff like that. Like i would do that. That's not my hyper v. Personality on i hate on him. That's one of his. Sticks is is not hurting nobody. He's not kobe covington's or have no problem with him I don't think he could end the the work. And i don't think he respects the game the way i do. 'cause i'm standing couple of interviews like he works out once or twice a week. I don't know if that was the back injury. Or just like a preference dame. But i i don't think he couldn't end the the work to be great the lot other guys put into be great. I i know. I'll put it in that work. I see a lot of guys. Elevation is steve. The hype work that needs to be great. I watch i watch. I watch neil magny like i'll think he's working like that. I'm working like that. I don't think he's work book. I was wondering also you know he has said some things about you. He referred to as a crab in a bucket. Have you heard this that you don't wanna see another black man be successful. I mean he's just trying to get under your skin and talk smack or do you feel he believes this. No i thought this is the part of stick. Say something random Stay with that. Goes i what i don't wanna be like the whole like root for by by fires. I root heavily for a lot of black five. I could help me like i do. Wanna see a black hires succeed. Men and women. Are angela hills on tv. I'm rooting my ass off. I i root hard. So that's i don't know where you got okay and does it get your skin me like. Is that like a personal shot or you. Just you just lateral battle. I don't play that game. i don't play the. Let's let's see who get the most click. I don't come not good. it's gonna play a game. I'm not good at it. What about his as a federal. Obviously we know that you have a great wrestling You know a great wrestling foundation. But you're also a very good striker as well. The wrestling has always been a problem for him. Is that something that you feel like. He's gotten better at or do you still feel like he's kind of still at the same level as far as wrestling is concern. Yeah i've got better He's shown spurts of ike of competency down there. Mike spurts of i. Okay athletic that he knows what he's doing but you don't you don't get the wrestling. I have unless you you russell russell from two thousand five to two thousand twelve in high school in collegiately. That's what you really get the wrestling at. Not getting that. So i don't it. It doesn't matter how many how many hours he puts in a sprawling. Or whatever like you're not gonna have a also emory that. I have is taking me over a decade to build up muscle memory that i have so i still believe. He's going to be at a major disadvantage when coach wrestler. Your last fight was a great win. Over alexander volkov dominant win win has aged well over time especially when you see what he did in good. He looked against But you receive criticism. People thought that the fight wasn't very exciting. Did you feel like that was unfair. Did you understand where they came from. I do understand. i didn't. I did not get off the proper ground town to excite fans on us much grappling as i used. I understand you need to be active down there to be people wanna see elbow. They wanna see significant strikes. But i'm happy to credit the the bulk of like. I've told everyone who's asked me about this fight. He is legit. He is not a bomb he is far from. The manage. huge is very strong. It had the under a guard. I his physical like the land of his torso in the land of his eyes and everything. It presents a whole different problem that you don't get to. I've never grappled with anyone that he had never grappling with those proportions so it was just. It was hard to figure out how to get has garden. I couldn't get out of the old guard. And it's i need to get the half and i just had issues and we've worked budgets worked on my past. We will address those issues but he has a great guard. And you gotta give him credit. I get it takes two to tango and he did a great job of non allowing me to do. I wanted to do other going to that. Fight your outspoken. About a lotta things which actually agreed on Afterwards you know those words were used against you because the fight. Maybe wasn't as exciting as some thought. How did you feel about how that was how that went down and do regret like is it almost one of the next time. I'm not going to be outspoken. Because this is annoying. I don't regret it And i i still feel that way. Ena he he took advantage. He's like oh this guy this guy he has a he has people. Don't listen home. He performed at this. Well let me let me smash him in the media so people listening more even though go on like ib. I was under off like legit. Where i don't care how you do it.

"curtis blaydes" Discussed on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show

"The planet. He returns to action this saturday. Main event ufc. Fight night in. Las vegas at the apex. He's curtis blades. He's going up against derrick lewis very important in the heavyweight division. Good to talk to curtis thank. You always supposed to be on the show by the way. I see the fresh cut. You got the design in there and stuff like a specific guy that you go to before you head out. Your fight will be going to the been going to the same for the last almost three years now I'm very loyal to my barber. So he's a local guy here. john Anyone who's out here in the denver area should definitely check them out and is it the same design every time or do you switch it up. I'd be using this one. The lies tours. Three fights the Call the I don't know what the exact be is now. But i like to switch up. I've got. I've had a bunch of a bunch of different designs. I like that do you. Do you want them to mean something or did you dislike that. It looks good on. Sometimes they do. Sometimes they don't diversity. I dunno it gives me heavy. It gives me the vibes elected. Greek warrior. I feel like i wanna war and i've he'll bury like this is my last. He's armor out. I'm putting on both walk out there. And once i get the haircut i know is like israel this week. I'm about to go go leave and go fight. Somebody now of course. We thought that we were going to get this fight in november thanksgiving weekend. Unfortunately it had to be cancelled it got cancelled one of those rare main events during this pandemic. ufc has been very lucky. Them and events have have actually happen. Yours unfortunately got cancelled. Because 'cause you got covid what was that like to find out a day before the event main event huge fight for you that you're out because kobe was initially the first hour. I was disappointed. Pretty pissed i had all the family out dinner friends out there on if you remember but that was the weekend for Weekend so it wasn't easy for people to get there was just it was not it was not my ideal weekend so it was rough initially but once i got back home to denver we just assess this situation like the fight had to be cancelled. Guy did have any of the the. Kobe symptoms on friday. But the next day. Like around like eleven. Am hit hard by. There's no would have been able to fight. I had the chills. Headaches in the muscle aches. It came out of the blue. I thought it was fine. I feel like one of those as symptomatic guys but no hit me the day of the fight early that morning. There's no way. I would have been able to fight. Snow along jalan. Did you feel that way for almost a week about six days. Then it started to clear up. Do you lose weight. Yeah alonso eight pounds. 'cause you're not hungry has for sure Any after-effects now. Now the worst of was the lingering fatigue but that went away after like a month. Okay While i'm glad to hear that glad the fight is happening. Very recently Dana white told i believe. Tmz the winner of in ghana me. Oh church is fighting. John jones for the belt Phone did take the wind out of your cell because you can make a case. Is the number one contender. If you already know what i was going to ask. Why lied to. Finally no i expected. It is john jones his his money fight and i if he wants to about yeah he gets the five foot about lab shocked. Do i think it's is the most Fair thing is now but that's not what this is about is not about fair. and whose earned what. 'cause i think grover grover to share light-heavyweight either. He should relax with a. Is you want to bump up. You let izzy bubble up so it works like that for all classes on. Not that i wasn't stocked up. Okay now bother not shot. Have you been allowed. Have you allowed yourself to even think of our like what exactly i mean. Obviously you want to keep winning. You're in that spot but the heavy title doesn't get defended very often as you know almost one a year for the last three four years. Do you think you would stay active or do you think you would wait after this a very strong case that a win over derek lewis. That will be your fifth in a row. You deserve a title shot. Yeah you're right. I i have a great great argument. And that's that's my job. That's minds oguz right now to build bill my argument for why should be next. Even it's john. I saw my job. Do i have to take out derek. If image on end up hiding like beats steep in john being in gondal. And okay.

The one name we didn't discuss and i have to say i loved it. I loved the idea. You versus nathan d as he wants to fight a win seventy he wants a big name. You call them out. I still am holding out. Hope that this could happen. I don't know maybe i'm crazy. Joe field this can happen. Hopefully hopefully but you never know what is going to do. You know what. I mean so that'd be great fight. He's wants compete. lightweight Where where's that drinking Bigwood options the so. I'm assuming you're not holding your breath on that one. Nah is like. I said to the weird weird way advance other noise to know what we're gonna do slim and becomes the to have like you said you to compete at one. Eight says Winners unwanted with the most wins in division problem wasn't While while while more winners could you could engage the On a good to have him step in as can. I just ask leon as we wrap this up You feel like a caged animal at this point like i work. I've been covering the sport a long time. I don't recall a story quite like this and it's not about charity. It's not about feeling it's just the the amount of crap that you have had to deal with over the past year is really mind blowing. You're so close to the title shot at now. You have this situation where it looks like. They're giving you a big fight trying to make you big and the guy involved on the other side doesn't want to like do you feel like your head is gonna explain. How do you handle all of this.

"Wrestling Curtis blazes just a tough tough dude to fight. He so committed to his wrestling and. And I think Alexander Volkov I think can gain a lot from that from that match up. It's just a tough tough match-up for him. So. What are you GonNa do Dana White. was definitely critical, and he said blades at talk some. Talk some Shit. But the title man. wight two blades after win. You look stupid now that that title right there on my old cow. That'd be tough for two friends to say to each other. Let alone an employer and employee right the the the rest of it is. You look stupid after failing. To backup talk in you of SEON ESPN win eleven win, but. Junkie. It just says you look stupid. It had over one hundred thousand shares so that story definitely definitely blew up He said I like Curtis Blades, but curtis blades is the wrong attitude. As far as I'm concerned. I don't have anything against the kid at all. But when you talk shit like he did this week, you'd better come in and whip somebody's ass. When you talk like that when you talk the shit that he did and perform like he did tonight. You look stupid. Yeah, he won. He talked a lot of shit coming in this week. We put the same. The editorial about that anyway. Did. He say something about the promotion do. About fighter pay was any one of those guys that's. I think that's more of what white. pissed about not that he's remember. There was a tweet that said of y'all are thinking that this is GonNa. Blah Blah Blah. Shows that to their credit. You basically said I'm just. GonNa. I'M GONNA. Do what I do, which is take someone down and smash them. You know and he was doing it for a while. He just couldn't. It wasn't beautiful because he was so stuck on dominant positions, but there was no advancement, and that's where Credit Volkov in a couple of times, Dean said all right. We got to stand back up so and also. When you? Imagine being. can I put this. Imagine being the the the model that walks the runway after Giselle Bloomington. Man Let's just say you're really not known for. Your striking looks us have a good body. You know maybe a butter face whatever and you gotta go after her imagine being the quarterback for the Patriots this year. You know that's what these guys were doing. Coming in as Emmett and Burgos were were leaving. Those who are walking and go. How do we top that? You know want to be in that position. Yeah, so. It was a fun night. It was a weird night, but it was fun night. Lonzo happened we did our best there to recap before you guys as I do. With all of these receive. I, can catch goes off. Guard goes real quick. Gate and attendance for Saturday night. Oh easy peasy. Zero which one though where our? The trump rally. Are we talking? It was six zero. They're expecting one nine, zero zero zero. I had to take that. Burn guys. Yeah! zero ten zero gate is what it's at folks. the is Dustin Pedroia versus Dan? Hooker you'll see our picks on the front page of ENEMY JUNKIE DOT COM. You'll know where we stand, but is there anything you want to say on? That card goes Now you have this format on the hooker yet. Either the car the fight itself amendment all the main event. It's awesome. It's GonNa be so good. I can't wait to see that fathom be. Going to be fun, because both guys styles don't allow for it to be a boring fight. It's going to be really really fun and it's GonNa. Come down to a big check for both of those guys. They both have great skills whilst Mike. Parry versus Makiko. That Mickey Gall better get him down quick or something that they definitely can't be exchanging on the feet I agree and then after that folks, we have a week off and all the fights will start taking place at y'all's island in Abu Dhabi including UFC two fifty. What are we had to fifty one The has three title fights Uis. Mon-. Defends Volkogonov ski defense, and then the title left vacant by Henry Saluda will be filled either by Peter Yawn or Josie Aldo unless they pull A. Figueredo Ben Evita's. Remember those guys were supposed to One of them was supposed to become a champ. And figure out a one, but didn't make weight, so they're running it back and they're running back a week later, so we're even creeping up on that one too so.

"That didn't really give you. All of the pieces of the puzzle, so the way they portray things was roure was like trying to feed him to the Lions and they didn't even mention the part that at the end he did actually stop the fight so in other people's eyes. They're gonNA. Look at it, as will you'll see just wants people out there and get jacked up him I think they have no choice. They have to give him a second fight. It would look really bad. Yeah, well I hope. He hope he gets one to with full camp. Definitely for sure look, you won his first fight. I think he finished them all. and. That's why he had so much height, but Anyway folks. I was just the first fight of the night. Lauren Murphy good for her late resurgence in her career, remember she got. A little pissed on that season of the ultimate fighter, and and since she's done very well for herself, so you gotta give her a shot up just in jeans, also trains extreme tour. He went out there and he just got. He started Landon Hooks on Camacho tough son of a bitch man and he didn't stop the on. You could just see his face. What do we do you like? I'm happy and I'm reacting. And who and he was processing, it seemed like his reaction was like three seconds behind what had already physically happened like he literally was just so intense. Didn't know where to Ron what to say, but he was so excited, but he literally debuted a few days notice and got the win so good for him. We see this guy at extreme couture. All the time to he does his thing and then i. think he trains the kids. We usually see on the way. He's training the kids. he also played on the extreme couture team when we played them junky nation versus extreme couture and flight for bar remember him. Mentioned mackey, Potolo, andbranch bars and Eric Niksic, and Boston Salmon so orioles had our hands full that day, folks. We had elite one nothing all right Jillian. Well, you won't say anything about just ginned. Well I I just thought what was surprising was beat. Camacho. Income Wacho fashion it was. That's what. Probably the game plan. You would say whatever you do. Don't get involved in that type of fight with this guy. And he did, and he came out on the winning end Definitely. Julian Robertson defeated Courtney casing. And so that's the second flyweight fight of the night. Because remember Murphy beat mortar fairy. These are all the ladies that are angling to get to Valentina Shangqiu. Real quick being on that Lauren Murphy is thirty six years of age. And she is one. Four of five so remember. The season didn't go well for her, but she did win in the finale against Bob Haunt tack. Who was considered the number one going into that season? This was back in two thousand seventeen. Then she dropped one, too the. Banks and the now she's one three in a row, including Roxanne a fairy. Andrea Lee and Mara Romero Baramulla, so all decent fighters on the Jillian Robertson side. She's only twenty five years of age she. Since fighting in that finale has gone. Let See. She's one three or four, and she's one five and two since that season so. She's doing right to man Good for both of them. I just wanted to put it a little bit in context. With. What's happening in that division? That division is basically bouncing Shinco and then I think. Most people can name to others Oh. There's Jessica I and Caitlyn Chiquet and the only reason is 'cause. You just think about the last two people that Valentino embarrassed you know and. Anyway Marc Andre Reo got the wind. He should torres boy back to the wall What did they say when they We said she might have a chip on her shoulder member. When the fight was announced, did say what was the opposite of surging or streaking Teasha is like sinking. No, maybe something like that. Seeking Torres gets last. Fine. Remember there was A. On Junkie. Headline what we were like! It wasn't really. What's the word? The word was one of those like where I never read that it'd be like beat. Anyway, she started off ten in one. In now, she was ten and five going into this. she needed that win I. Look, she's popular. She's Brazil's partner. Those two are probably to Dana White's favorites. She's a formidable young lady. Who during her time? As a fighter has actually finished her masters degree like she's very very impressive when you talk to her sweet girl to met her in the studio. But. You can't go and for. Much less Oh and five. But that performance finally fact I said it even before the fight. She just seems to have a repetitive game plan. And the last thing, and she loves the stand, but she doesn't seem to have the big Ko power now. A Ko didn't take place, but she was thrown. Finally goes with some ferocity in like she was landing a few where I think. She Got Bran Van Buren definitely back off. She definitely hurt her She's throwing differently. You know she. She's known for that little I mean that's why they call it a tornado the tornado. Could you just got that little style? But she was thrown a lot of straight punches, and I think it really caught her opponent off guard. she had started off ten in one like I, mentioned her only loss was to nominate Eunice, but she had also beaten ominous, so she was. She was off to a good start. I! Remember. WHAT HER SEASON! I remember thinking. That was Myrlie pick to win the whole thing. Anyway, Bobby Green got the best of Clay Guido to veterans of the sport I don't know if I said it like this, but I really felt like. The loser might. Be Done in the AFC. Bobby Green had a two fight losing streak going into this fight. Prior to that he had a win and a draw, and then prior to that he had three straight losses. But you know as these guys start to make a little bit more money, and if they're not fighting frequently if they're not making their mark sometimes, it's just time for you to go in quake clueless. Klay Guidos spot. He's Uber Popular. He just registered with the fans. He may always have a spot now as long as he wants, but to be fair, he had lost. Two of his last three so now it's three of his last four. If you include the green win. Miller losses so quick. The Jamila was a guillotine choke one minute in the one win sprinkled amongst the three losses. In that four fight run? was the bj Penn on Bj's just not what he was, so that's why there's not too much stock raise. In that win at that point. Then you go to Oliveira. He got submitted their in Chicago. That's his hometown I was in one minute to. That's why I felt like. You Know Hey, once these guys up there and they're making a lot. You know I I. Don't Know How long they keep your home. We'd is thirty eight. So. He's given us some classics back in the day bird anyway. it's another one. What can I say I love that slapped. His brother gives them. Jim Miller yet Jim Miller we just talked about him. He defeated Roosevelt Roberts. The guy just doesn't stop. That's thirty five fights. He's had. That is Kaiser Rony. Every time you want to count that dude out he. It's like an alligator lime disease. He has Thirty six years of.

"Really wanted to pull the trigger lewis said he had a bad back but then against yourself and against a junior and cane he seems to have just kind kind of something clicked for him and maybe it is belief in the right hand. I don't know but i hope that he wouldn't be foolish enough to to not have at least worked on that and that that could happen to him again. Either with a guy like you are steeping keeping up against the cage. I mean i think is it's just hard to teach old dogs new tricks. He's been getting by having bad conditioning for majority of his career was kind of hard just to flip a switch and conditioning heavyweight. Wait is is not very hard. I we're big guys. It's very hard to move our bodies up and down bows and getting up and down and a lot of big guys. Just don't wanna wanna do it. That's why you don't see that many heavyweights i at this level because not allowed to do so. We even have the conditioning of in ghana. I is just most most guys just want to stand in being 'cause it's easier just to swing your arms and it is to like move on the ground and get up and get up and down and all that stuff so that's why i like the best condition heavyweight in the game right now. I i have no problem grinding guys out for if teams twenty five minutes what style sorry what is your least favorite thing to do when you train lifting weight lifting same really now. Why is that. Is it boring or is it just because they're heavy. I mean what i never been immediate. I never been to get in the gym and just i'm one of the guys who i i need a coach to like horse to pick up a weight. I don't like to lift weights. Well this man. It's always good watching you fight.

He can knock out anyone in this division and then he also has the most take downs and heavyweight division history yeah. He's <hes> i was really i. I love in ghana but i was disappointed in that yeah last fight. I wanted to see what would happen if he like had. Francis improved his takedown defense at all. Apparently i mean yeah a booming for a little bit yeah but i i would like to see francis again. I wanted to see him have to deal with with exhibition fights teabag and you know that he's gonna get pressed up against the cage again. <hes> does he have any ability now to to stop that or turn that around sure. He's been working on it and the cardio. Obviously we want to see how long francis can last because his cardio left him very quickly against ebay it did but i also think he admitted this is why i like francis because he admitted he was overconfident.

Making phone calls at two o'clock in the morning shouldn't have made and ask you about abu dhabi. Are you doing anything when you're there. I'm always sommes like guys like be because before if i have to work i won't do anything before i do when i get to the town. Do you do anything when you get there to just sit and hotel or do you actually go out and explore. I'm i'm i. I like to just just relax. You know train. I train a lot when i'm back home and i really ever get much time to to just unwind and relax so i use i use fight week as my my downtime and then <hes> obviously on saturday nights i have to. I have to do my job and then i'll explore. I'm here for a couple a couple of days off to the fights so i'm gonna explore so <hes> explore the place a little bit okay. I think everyone's really looking forward to seeing you. Get back in the octagon. You know it's been almost a year since you fought. You took some time off as you mentioned to help. Chris cyborg trained for her bout against a man news. What was that decision like you know taking time off yourself and kind of helping a training partner <hes> well you know i i helped her for her her original with <hes> hardly home in two thousand seventeen and that's actually how i got to know her and <hes> she she she she in part is is a big big reason why i'm in the u._s. You know i think being out there with helping her with that. Camp got exposure for me and helped me get into the u._c.'s so you know i i i'm. I'm always i'm always ready to to help people that have been good to me so often my friends i fly to california pretty much like three days off to optima optima fights and <hes> i was there for two months so i didn't really have time to get into my own training camp and then i had some <hes> some managerial sort of changes in my lifestyle i was kind of on the put on ice for a little while then injuries etc etc so definitely wasn't my choice to wait this long to get a five but now that i'm now avenue. I'm back. I'm different than try and stay more active and the fight with amanda that cyborg had obviously you know look anybody can get caught. I think amanda might hit a little harder than people expect. What what do you think happened in that did did. She underestimate amanda striking a different plant. What do you think happened besides her just getting caught <hes>.

"That's what i think is going on. There's also the rumors you know coming up here and there that maybe mcgregor wants to fight at m._s._g. See the aldo's coming back into the mix but we'll see about that guy. I'm more focused on chosen more focused on me and i don't think i don't think it would give connor rematch right now. I think that here's maybe connor weights and if if pourri wins even o'connor lost habibie still may get at the show even though ferguson was promised ferguson deserves it connery us anybody's a massive money show the show the highlight of like connor knockin amounts like look knocked the champ out out you know what can you do it again right. How how do you how do you sell it for. Five fans at ferguson's not getting the shot yet sell it. You give him habib and you're like this is the fight that we've tried to book a thousand times. We're finally giving it to you on the undercard or something. Would you take that or no. I don't think so i think i think it'd be so insulting to knock give him the title shot after after all this yeah connor and habib not as a title fight. I don't see that happening at all. No definitely not there's too much unless it's like. They're both like forty forty. They still hate each other and they do the grudge fester stallone and deniro yeah yeah con connor losing to hubby began not for title is zero upside and so. I think that he'll take a nate fight. That's my guess he will fight nate again in the trilogy and i'm not interested in another connor habib fight. I don't know how familiar you are with. How a deep. Mike connor phantom runs or you love him. I love connor. He's my favorite. I've protect protested his court dates. I had i had to go to court. I got a whole summons for unreasonable poise outside his court dates. It's a whole thing connor. I wanna see fight. Guys like edson. Barboza fight guys like paul felder guys like nate diaz anthony pedestal poor. Ya i wanna see interesting. Striking match ups that are gonna be fun fights. I don't wanna see him. Fight these wrestlers that are gonna take him down and try to fight their fight like at this point got nothing else to prove. Go fight some fun fights. Make third the rest of your money and get out of the game yeah i. I have mixed feelings about him. I respect. I don't love connor at all but i i respect him. A lot of fighter and i think people forget how good of a fighter he is because he fell but he's gotta stop with this shit. That's smashing a phone fucking hitting some agreed you starting to fall into that and say john jones lost lost a couple of prime years 'cause nonsense and it's like they still very young and he's got a career ahead of him but it's like what are you doing and you're like you had the biggest. You probably the biggest athlete the sports. It's the path that so many fighters go down so it's tough to watch especially when it's like one of your guys and connors guy that came to superstardom. He rose to superstardom so quickly. It's like it feels like it happened overnight where he's a superstar and then all of a sudden he's going down the path. Yeah oh wow okay we we. We don't have any <hes> <hes>. We don't have any <hes> skype or anything like that. It's blocked all okay don match how you doing. I'm good. How are you doing very well. L. and you're in abu dhabi obviously. How long have you been there. We've been here suicide since yesterday yesterday morning. And what kind of time adjustment is that for where you live. I i'm not sure where you live fulltime. I live in johannesburg south africa. It's actually only two hours ahead so it's pretty much on the same same time line. That's nice okay and what is what does johannesburg like. I've heard that parts of it are beautiful and parts of it are kind of dangerous. I've never spent any time in south africa <hes> south africa's already. It's a beautiful place it. I mean like most countries has ups and downs. We we do struggle with with crime which is a bit of a of a disappointing one but otherwise other than that you know. He's a beautiful place and i. I love to call it my home okay. Have you.

"What do you think <hes> about obviously start with the main event. <hes> could could be begins dustin poirier this is this is an awesome fight and i've actually been getting some like interesting vibes fight week because i've seen seen a lot of people predict for the upset here. I've seen i think michael bist being predicted. It think chill sonnen predicted it a ton of people that i've time norton predicted jim norton and are you going for. Wow that see. That's super interesting to me but it's like and it's always you know everyone's always they look like the best of all time until they aren't but habib be busy just so next level for me like as on a hell of a run as one of the best runs in light heavyweight or lightweight history and just said you know if i beat habib. I'll be the greatest one fifty five or of all time he could definitely make a claim for it if he beats a beep if he beats him in abu dhabi in enemy territory. I'm excited for the atmosphere that fight more than anything. I think think i think the big fight field it's going to be what do you think that will be at four four thirty something like that in the afternoon so it'll it'll be very interesting to see and i think it's going to be kind of habib's habib's like coming out. Party is a big draw of himself because i've seen that numbers are already projected really high for this day and has already posted about it and i think the the world will be tuning into this yeah but it's one of those things where sometimes that pressure works for you and other times. It becomes a bit overwhelming like again. You know talk about title fights. Eddie alvarez is fighting connor in the garden. I was at that fight. It felt like literally a home fight for connor and in a way for eddie's from philly and sometimes the moment i think can again. I'm not saying it will be for you know. I know it's just like saying could be better. It's more saturday. I go back and forth to hand because i know habib and yet cubby just feels better because the case that's why cursor curses off case but for him i again he handles pressure well but you look at what ally acquainted with zero preparation yeah and again it it could be one fucking fifty forty five but hours to me that much trouble and was incredibly aggressive and he didn't get tangled up on the floor and smothered and beaten he fought a good fight considering had no trauma training for paul felder fucking can when five with with and again i've said it before too so forgive the redundancy but connor going into the fourth round <hes>. I really do think that <hes> has a great shot at landing on on <hes> on him early in the first couple of rounds <hes> stopping him. We'll look at the pressure that forty eight put on holloway. Holloway is is one of the best strikers in the u._f._c. without a doubt. Obviously he came up from one hundred five emporia looked massive in their compared to holloway but the pressure he put on them was so crazy that he is not going to get tired. I think can go five rounds and be completely fine so if he does that also a little x. factor for habib i <hes> i fight with his dad and in his corner. That's really that adds extra pressure for him. Maybe that helps them out a little more. We'll see oh you see and his corner. They always say follow the father plan. That's what they say to him. So it's like his father's always spiritually. They're right at this time. He'll actually be there. It's interesting but but the question is can go five covey browns which means being fucking smother. There's nothing more uncomfortable than watching him on top of somebody somebody when their legs were tied up. I know when they're when they're in between his his legs. I just re watch. The michael johnson fight which you were that was at m._s._g. When he's talking to michael johnson then he's got his legs tied up and he's saying come on give up. You know i have to fight for this. You know this already and he's talking to dana that is the most terrifying thing in the entire world and also the u._f._c..

"Who it was. The most people complete ask people said that about style bender when he fought a silver. They were like style took it easy on him. He didn't wanna finish him this that the next thing. I don't really think that was the case. I think style guy on his way to a title shot at the time was very much wanting to finish. If you could get one i agree and i think that he had a lot more opposite again. Dan you know was the champion but still i think that i don't think saw the undertook it easy on him at all and i also thought that brunton beat silva in brooklyn. I thought that was terrible decision. <hes> i love anderson but i thought that dr brunson got really fucked in that. I thought that was really unfair. What are we talking about. Losing my mind as i get older we were talking about <hes> getting getting another shot at the heavyweight heavyweight title john jones going to. I don't wanna see them fight again at light heavyweight. Although that's probably what's going to happen now that he's lost. But what do you think cormier can make two. Oh five. It's always been such a rough cut for him now. He's getting a little bit older. He's got the back issues like i dunno. If gourmet wants to make five obviously you've put a certain number in front of him and he'll try but does he wanna make it. Maybe not but again what's his alternative. He's not gonna get a rematch immediately. <hes> they're gonna give it to somebody like <hes>. I think francis isn't the next shot at steep yup because again even though it was a complete mismatch as far as the ability to <hes> terrestrial and steve day was so smart and that fight he did go five rounds with them which nobody thought i jokingly said i. I'm gonna take one of the my decision and of course i couldn't goof. They were shot. There were hints of you know excellence in that first round in terms of like that was one of the most entertaining rounds i've ever seen in my life yeah and he did land on c. Pay a little bit too. I did really the i think it did. Stupid is very tough. I don't know how many how many france shots you take yeah and he wouldn't gwynne too. I wonder what he'd go into a second steepest part light as he was because he came in kind of light against daniel which i guess that was a strategy to fast form. He came in way later than he did last time too. I think both of them looked at it and said i guess speed is what is important here right see. I don't know what's going to happen. I think is gonna fight. Jones light-heavyweight because jones keeps saying wants to come up and he's calling out brockett. I look i get it. It's a huge fight fight in the a._f._c. again. I just don't there's other guys. I would rather rather see who i think have earned the shot again. Money is money though so yeah why that you'd book that fight. That's that's an interesting fight for me. I don't wanna see brock fight for title but a super super fight like that i would i would be interested in also huge wrestling fan. You all can get rock out of the ring. I don't wanna see brock wrestle anymore so if if you could get him out of the ring and put them in the octagon. I would love that if he was only in the octagon. I would be interested but i don't like this. Pop it in every couple of years and you know i just either fight or fight easy for me to say of course but i mean obvious i sit here comfortably eating an become training flight. Don't fight brock fighter. Don't fight. Could you pass the pretzel yeah. I am a dish so i don't know yeah. That's kind of what i want to see and we have a tremendous and i'm so site because i'm in buffalo performing this weekend. I'm doing doing gigs so sometimes have to watch the fight on replay and like an asshole last week. I looked at instagram before i watch on the china card. I didn't know how it happened. I just saw like fuck so i try not to but next week i can watch.

"He was really hard himself a salad wait a hard but you're not seeing. You couldn't get going like really against tomorrow's. We just couldn't couldn't get moving. Sometimes a guy like it's like any other day. You know you go to work sluggish and that guy you know. Unfortunately we're fighting. When you're sluggish another guy's kicking the shit idea in front of twenty thousand people and pay per view yes some days you have to be sluggish and and fight for the world championship and daniel cornea has been in that position in the past look at m._s._g. Against <hes> against derrick lewis or where he he blew out his back throughout his back with his knees that morning almost didn't fight you know so it's like the the struggles that fighters go through on entire fight weeks. Even even wait cuts insane. He did to fight anderson the guard democracy but that was vegas u._f._c. two hundred yeah i remember it was replacement fight and i i still to this day. Thing anderson took it easy on sell them with that kick. Nobody remember that kick where he kicked him in the stomach and and cormie started backing up holding his stomach and he just laid on him yeah mostly he's been laying and i always it's like academia could have done more damage on the ground. No one agrees. I i will agree with. You and i'll say i think didn't because the champ at that point so a loss there is like whoa. What does that do person. I think he was just playing it safe and so we took the fight on a couple of days notice and i always thought that he didn't wanna hurt anderson more than he had to and again. I know i'm i'm just being a fucking idealistic idiot. I'll watch it again after everyone has told me. I'm a fool somebody agreed with me and i don't remember who i sucker somebody into agreeing with me. I don't remember remember who it was. The most people complete ask people said that about style bender when he fought a silver. They were like style took it easy on him. He didn't wanna finish him this that the next thing..

"Like them more than other athletes like the humble they were really you know it was like ladele and rampage rashad or all those guys from two thousand eight two thousand nine and they were all friendly guys like none of them were dick's and you interview a fucking a basketball player or baseball player that can with their sunglasses on sitting back well. There's gotta be ah humility to being a fighter right in the stakes are so high in that a loss on the court is like era. We'll i'm going to go to bed tonight will wake up. We'll try to get a win tomorrow. In an yeah you get knocked out like that. Is you get knocked out on pay per view. That's way bigger so i think maybe maybe it humbles some people yeah and also they have nothing to prove and also just being in the gym like being in a jujitsu jim and someone tapping you out like rogan talks about all the time. It's very humbling. It's very you know it. It grounds fighters. I guess so yeah it makes them easy and we have easy to talk to her say oh. We have don madge today if we can get a hold of them. I don't know much spoken to him. We also have curtis blades back on what listen i'm curtis was on. I should probably know that instead of asking asking fucking thin air and just do my job. I guess it was march of this year so it was a few months ago was that before or after <hes> his fight over justin willis don't remember because i know he had <hes> he had lost two in ghana. I thought we had talked to him right before then <hes> but he's saying in this promo. Actually we played that. He thinks he deserves the next heavyweight. Title shot obviously a j. D. s. will not be getting it after that terrible loss to to francis cormie ages lost. So what do you think huda steep bay fight next. It's kind of tough. The heavyweight division is kind of like murky waters right now because while we wait for cornea to decide whether or not he's retiring. We don't know what's happening next. If he's not retiring. I would love to see that rematch. I thought that was awesome. We discussed it. It's i would love to see that trilogy that would go down as one of the great heavyweight trip trilogies and <hes> if not though like blades kinda does have a rightful claim the issue for him. He's he's fighting the ranked number ten this weekend and he's ranked number four so it is one of those kind of no win fights where it's like. Can you give guy title shot after he beats number ten but does he have a shot over francis. Rematch and francis did go five around and again it was a domination but he went around and francis recently destroyed curtis artist and also jay and also came and it's like i think he's kinda under rematch yeah yeah he probably has he probably has an i wouldn't be opposed to seeing zinger rematch between francis and blades even though francis did destroy him that was november twenty eighteen. I think <hes> i think a rematch between those two would be very interesting yeah. I mean a third fight. I guess would be. I think francis wouldn't take that and i think he's been saying he wants a shot. I i wanted to see francis. I would love to have seen that fight because daniels smart fighter he would know obviously he's so good with <hes> again. Closing distance see you know he's probably always got although his arms are not sure i thought but he he's good at closing distance against guys like <hes> jones in that second. Do you want it to follow the game plan the game plan that he's straight from in the fight with stay so disappointed in myself so another opportunity ready to go in and listened to his coaches a little more implement. The wrestling i think would be interesting. Steve was fighting a weird fight to..
