"Am your host damon martin. And this week i'm joined by. Ufc veteran invicta veteran and be kfc superstar. Pearl gonzalez pearl. Welcome in how are you. I'm amazing how you on for us. Thank you so much for taking the time Obviously with the podcast where we're talking to fires from all over the place and and we're going to talk a lot of boxing stuff this week. Obviously veto bill ford fighting evanger holyfield tito ortiz fighting anderson silva and last time we spoke of course coming up your big win and your care see you actually told me you were thinking about crossing over nebraska's well yes absolutely. I think that right now. Boxing is You know overall it it's just a really it's really popular. It's i mean. It always has been. But i think crash dovers is is a better way to put that crossovers right now. And he's super fights are just so popular right now and i'm having a blast. I would absolutely love to at some point. Have a pro. Boxing fight Obviously trained now is boxing for bare knuckles. So i'd like to test myself professionally as vaccination in and i'm sure many others are the same way. Yeah we're seeing it so much malicious get into it right now. Talk about this because we've seen it so much lately. Just turn woodley crossover and fight jake. Paul i was at that event. It was so much fun. It was a blast. It was just awesome to be there. The crowd was great. I said it. Before the youngest audience i can ever remember seeing a boxing show It was just a lot of fun. Obviously we've got you know You know vitor belfort about to make his. Boxing return actually had a fight years ago. But i'm kind of saying his return this weekend for a vendor holyfield. Get tito ortiz. Fighting anderson silva anderson of course had an incredible performance early this summer. And i think it's i don't know it's weird like all of a sudden is happening all the time and i'm kind of i don't know i'm not sure if it's like there's a there's an interest obviously there's an interest in doing it and i think a lot of fireside interest just like fighters who are wrestlers. They want to win olympic gold in wrestling. And they wanna win golden mma. They also there are people who are interested in boxing. Who loved the challenge of doing. I'm here chris. Lytle did it. Years ago he went over and crossed over and did boxing and have fun with it. But we're seeing it so much more lately. Obviously there's a money factor. We can't deny there's going to be money made some of these big fights but it's also a lot of people are just interesting to do. I don't know what do you think birlik. Why are we seeing so many mixed martial artists suddenly so just the opportunities there like what is it. I believe it's the opportunities that are there. I think that right now especially after going through the pandemic and and having kind of a halt to everything you know. I think us as competitors me as a competitor. Personally i can sneak from. I need competition. I want competition. And if there's an opportunity to present itself in another area of my sport which is press prominently ben. Mma you know. I can work on my striking in my stand up in the opportunity presented itself here with with bare knuckle and so i moved into boxing and i think that there are fighters to that may not be able to grapple. That may not be able to do. I may or just would like a change. A change of and it says the their scales in another way. And that's the beauty of our sport. Mma is there's so many arch. There's so many pieces to the puzzle that you need to get inside of there and compete in mma. Enzo you know taking a portion of that taking one piece to the puzzle and working in focusing on that i think is what to me. Sounds like is intriguing about it I could see celebrities that you know. Just the who are also athletes. I'm sure and competitive. In their own nature can watch test themselves in something like boxing and it is. It is a lot safer in boxing than it is in. Let's say emma may not you don't have to learn the grap laying and and the balance and everything else that comes into it. You can focus on one skill and so. I think that that is why we're seeing more and more of these fights. It's funny you say that because what i'm about to say is going to piss off every boxing on the planet right now and i don't mean this offensively two boxers but the reality is a mixed martial artist who has all the skills striking grappling wrestling all that. It's easier for them unless say easier it's easy. I'm saying it's easier for them to go crossover in the boxing. Because you're already boxing now. Obviously it's a different thing. I'm not saying that you know tire would going over and boxing canal alvarez that would be such incredible mismatch and canal is the one of the best. What i'm saying going over just like boxing. Jake paul or going over and boxing. We're seeing some of these other matchups. vitorino his age. He's boxing evander. Holyfield was gonna box oscar de la. Hoya he's not boxing. Tyson fury But i think it's easier for mixed martial artist to say you know what i'm gonna take out all these other things i'm gonna stop doing the grappling going to start doing the wrassling. I'm just going to focus on boxing. Boxing is something every mixed martial artist does anyways. Maybe not to the level of you know fighting professionally. But they're doing it anyways it's easier to cross over new and there's a reason why you're not seeing the reverse. You don't see boxers. You don't see cannella thing you know what i feel. I going over and fighting in a ufc. Because i really feel like getting choked out next week. That's just it's just not going to have this. It doesn't happen that way because there's so much more to learn it's so much harder to transition from any other sport. I mean you could say wrestlers have the greatest base and i believe wrestlers typically had the best base for mixed martial arts. But there's no guaranteed a success. Ed ruth who is a phenomenal college wrestler. You know he came over. He said several losses in ballots..

I am your host for today. alexander. Kaley i am joined by an lustrous panel. It's really the only word you could use i. I'll introduce everyone's favourite. Everyone's favourite curmudgeon. Jose young's why am i imagine li- just own it. You're on your yeah. You're no-one who reads that many comics look you can be a a twenty four hour Twenty four seven cheery person i took. I took a five day vacation. I didn't watch any. Mma for five days. And this is what i come back to detox. Mac talks prove. Prove me wrong. Because we're we're gonna we're gonna have a great show so please prove me wrong over the course of this show and we're joined also by bt l. veteran in. I'm i didn't watch the this week. Are you the reigning champion at gen michou. Dude come on the existing champion though. I don't know if we're gonna be joining. I thought we were talking. Paul woodley didn't husband talking about the card. This is great so no we will. At some point. We're going to be talking about paul. Would leave but that event happens on sunday sunday evening today we will be talking about las vegas thirty five Which will be going out. There's a fourth person y. Oh well i was going to set up. I was gonna say and the man the man who who because we will always say this and then they do. It makes no sense. I was gonna say the man who literally requires no introduction. Casey lied them detroit. But now it's stupid. That i said it because i introduced you also aka i wanna say i also didn't watch between the links this week because it's no longer a video series. Oh true caster podcast. Every yes please. Who anyone if anyone hasn't been keeping an eye on the may fighting a podcast network it is. It is booming right now with all kinds of stuff so please make sure you tune in. Maybe they won't. You won't come see our beautiful faces and muscles you're used to but that's what this preview shows for Again you'll certainly see again. Also when we do the paul widdly preview which again. Jed is not what this so we have guys. We have a full card. It's a busy weekend we've got what. Pf l. tonight invicta tonight. You've see on saturday. And then paul woodley on sunday. We're to a good event guys. It's not look too far ahead a good. You've seen event edson barboza Gaza which i think is a perfect piece of matchmaking Maybe i'm wrong. I'll go to you first. And just what were your initial impressions of this fight when it was. My initial impressions were finally. I'm pretty sure. I've tweeted this four or five times asking for this fight specifically after brian ortega and korean zombie fought. This became my new. I'm just gonna tweet about this until this becomes a reality. I think the first one time i did. It was after giga one. On the first jacksonville card it was one of those first pandemic fights. I can't remember who he fought. I think it was a very last minute. Opponent is like one of the. I think he's a fighter actually went up in weight to fight him news. He was much more short giga kinda clowns on him for fifteen minutes and then immediately like man. I would love to see him fight. Edson barboza was also fighting later that afternoon. I think that was when edson barboza quote unquote lost to dan. Ebay and get jacuzzi had said he wanted to fight edson barboza ever since 'cause if you remember ads barbosa decapitated beneath dare you. She was one of the knockouts of the year. When it happened in giga in benito dare user i think main trading partners like if one of them gets a fight the other one flies in justice specifically trained. So i've been asking for this fight for a little better part of the last eighteen months so i am absolutely ecstatic. That not only that it's happening but it's twenty five twenty five minutes rather fifty minutes. Yes this is a main events worthy fight. I think it'd be really disappointing. This was just Shove dan komen somewhere even on a paper view. I think we'd all rather see it on a main card. It's a great showcase. I think it'd be on. Espn it will be on espn okay. So that's this is a ufc on espn card. Loss of exposure now Our own damon. Martin spoke to giga earlier this week. Recently and one of these was that you know he thinks a barbosa looks great when he's kind of fighting guys who aren't like at his level and strict he's talking about the fight of bits and he's not super impressed with the with everything he seen from barbosa jed truth to that that against a more technical striker like yoga. We might not see. Kind of the freewheeling. Aggressive proposal usually no categorically insane. Esenboga has fought honestly quite arguably the best run of competition of any non champion in the history of the ufc. Like he's looked good in these look. Bad hasn't has not had anything to do with them being quality strikers or not it has everything to do with how they fight at not saying anything mind-blowing whatever edson barboza is the best fighter in the world when he gets to fight at his base in range and when he doesn't he is much less effective and dj. Godsey is a great fighter who has not been anybody anywhere near the quality that it's more bose's competed against and also doesn't really fight in a style that will make our bows uncomfortable. I'm stoked about this. Findings can be awesome with the idea. That barbosa like He's lost a good strikers. No just engaged isn't what you'd call it. Good striker hits yard and declawed him like he's he's fought fine and beaten really quality strikers being quality guys doing everything. He has a clearly defined weakness. Fortunately exploit that. So we're gonna get an awesome display of kicking. It's gonna be great. That definitely is flicking. The giga kick versus. You know whatever Whatever kicks that barbosa chooses to break out. I i do want to sit on it. So i want to say the exact quote because i'm representing gaza properly here because you're right i mean to say he hasn't fought high levels. Striking competition is somewhat insane. I'm like some of the names. Of course he fought. Pol felder just gave g dan hooker and that's just recently. That's just recent anthony prentice. Yeah so a lot of good names. But i guess he gets saying from a technical standpoint. I guess guys who haven't done Excelled like you know traditional marsh Certainly striking martial arts outside of emmy so. Because they said he's done he's done everything against way lower level strikers there levels in this game in the striking especially what has he done in kickboxing or karate. What his accomplishment. I understand that it's beautiful when he's doing spinning beautiful highlight kicks again. Someone that never did any high level striking at a fight. All this for me is nothing casey. Now they've kind of hear that full quote. Does it sound more or less insane kickboxing this weekend. That thing glory that okay but with with the question is it gonna be often fight that we're asking. What are you asking is Questioning the level of striking competition that barbosa has faced supposedly in mma. It's now i mean. I understand what you're trying to say isn't barboza is basically hate saying this. I agree with jed. He said everything right. Okay no barboza when you look at his resume. It's frigging incredible. He's he's on that that that that kind of short list of unbelievably good anime fighters who might never fight for you if the title you know just because davis comic mustafa he's that level clearly incredibly a level talent just the way. The matchmaking works he just loses to that champ right before to get to that championship fight. Losing the guys. I could be before it'd be champions like that Gauging guys who know really good fighters I don't know i just there's barboza. He's looks amazing. Forty five I thought he'd beat dottie. Beat mr felder..

Did people come through with these suggestions to have fun. Yeah man obviously Put the ap yell going to cleveland with fucks going on a lotta people like nothing and then people there.

So usually there's not but i'm gonna give it a shot so there's a i found some things to do I think me and damon martin from may fighting go to the haunted house restaurant. Goofy shit like that after the press conference As long as i don't have anything to do. Probably go to the indians red sox game with some people from showtime so Yeah i'll i'll find something to get into for the most part. I'm taking my xbox series s with me Cycle nauseous came out. This just came out on will be the show Playing a game called wasteland. I'm gonna be in my room playing video games for the most part that is typical drain. I'm sure will bring the switch for the flight. Yes i have my switched packed. It's ready to go So yeah. I have my switch for the flattening flying first class like judy man should.

I'm gonna take it. Plus is covert so it really makes sense for me fly first class. I wanna be around like regular people sneezing on me so i to. I'm the king of comfort. Plus now we're not not quite first class not with the peasants like you know i. I don't mind like aflac. Southwest especially in the west coast just because it's very convenient to bags free really care that much with covert. I'm like yo he space. I want a bunch of people sitting next me now.

"An enormous breakout. This upcoming all right. Ak's get some decisions to make. We have one argument for jay. Mckee the current tour featherweight champion the grand prix winner and scott coker is is the best fighter in the world regardless of weight class and on the other end the fellow ponytail ian yuri per hashaykeh the wild man the top. Not the guy who's in his next fight. It should be fighting for the light heavyweight title the backup fighter for the upcoming title fight between go over to share and yamba mehovic. It should be the other way around. Ak but i'm trying to build up some drama. We turn it over to you. My friend who got done is a jet michou. The reigning defending champion damon martin the challenger. Those are both outstanding answers. First of all congratulations to both of you. Those excellent i wanna clarify the question. So this is who will be the bigger breakout in the next like four months or saying that four months in a going into like twenty twenty two. Yeah like by the end by the end of this year. Heading into twenty twenty two. Who's like the next guy again. Case cases really strong i think demons was Was very scientific was very on point. I think missing that. He is going to be part of that. That woodley appall broadcast is so huge. is gonna introduce them again to sort of a whole new audience audience that i wish you know had could see him flight He's a fine fine job on the desk is is first time doing it. the shame that it's you know seeing his personality but i still wish they could find a way to pushes his his name more. But i mean yes. It's hard to argue against mckee because the guy is really capitalize on that reason. Performance and You know hopefully belt or help them out. So i think i think david made a good point there I like jets. Jed had me worried because he spent like the first thirty by forty seconds. Investors like what. He's not gonna do which is fine. I mean that's very jet thing to do and i respected And whole the right. Mike embarrassing okay. Well anyway all been so Yeah he there was a lot of preamble. There was a lot of talking about against sort. Aj mckee more almost helped damon and then and then he made some excellent points again about your hospital. And the sort sorta unique situation that he's in to potentially become this big star at two. Oh five which is again kind of one of the divisions are now and it's kind of in need of of that that named a popular name eccentric memorable memorable memorable fighting style so That was a good point by jet. Mark i really typical winner between these two. Yeah that's why you're here. I supposed to help me out. We're best friends. I know. I know this is my first time doing this. I thought i might have done it before. But now i don't know i don't think i've ever had to judge before casey bry you and remember. You were the little dots on the bottom judge. Jen someone else probably. Yeah definitely me. I don't remember who it was ago so long ago. I don't have particular affinity for either fighter. So the so they could kissing kissing either fighters asses was not going to influence. Which would have really helped. Actually i wish i felt one way or another but other guy mike. I think i think the win this week. Just because not. Because i agree with the point but because i do think it kind of made me look at it in a different way i have. I have to give the win to one.

That's on uc fight past man played soccer and by promoter conor mcgregor going on going off on daniel and this is the reason why one of the reasons why i'll show you this video. I saw daniel cormet. This is during conor mcgregor versus poor to and they're doing like a beer chugging contests with laura cinco okay. Dry is the camera and so for sure the camera and needs to relax but I'm confused though. So this was a bit. They did on that. Espn ha show and he says drunk to that what that also because you know how dc had abused back when you're talking about could be father. Were bad tiny. Do you know anybody who had back there. And no i mean no one. I don't think anyone has his back right now. Then like die hard fans and he delayed these streets. I don't think deleting who deletes tweets by the way dare koreans a fatness getting into worse condition by the day. God bless them showed up drunk at me events the the very day before he was in the booth call my fight drunk enemy of at work in the day before being accomplished on the biggest fight in history.

You're evil fake. It's just desperation just staying. He's been crazy tweeden ya so he was doing this like question. Answer things with the fans on his twitter. Okay and then. I guess he said like he's gonna take the one seventy belt as well become this. You know multi time champion. Days are overdue and responded. Like you're gonna crack me or you're going to mess me. He's like you got mess up by d. As a bunch of other people don't know those those days are over. He saying so much crap right now so he tried to get. Dc fired not getting fired. But he did say that's a fireball offense to be drinking before offense for commentator so part of this fucking cancelled he's just looking when you do man yeah are moving on this is from damon martin from fighting he said the stop benner versus robert whitaker to is probably pushed back to twenty twenty two because of all the you know the states outside of the country's getting close dacoven australia i think but australia's fucking kick and ask them to even go there to go. There will be a trouble like even right now. To go japan you can even go to japan japan. I'm just looking at. I'm waiting 'til your tour next year. The i definitely now. It's always where people are going to be the fuck the middle pandemic man and it's everywhere. Yeah so it's supposed to be november this year but most likely twenty twenty two. Unfortunately i assume the challenge for the. Us's getting the staff from america over there and just betting on it to risking you know nightmare. Yeah You know this guy gable. Stephen anyone metal per So he was to dana white. And this one. Vince mcmahon hughes tweet net them. Yeah g. lane what. This is what he did he then. Hello dana white. Hello just potentially be a part of their companies you know okay and He's also considering going to the. Nfl of all things listened. What's his name gable stevenson stevenson. Gabriel don't fuck defy game. Go straight the nfl here. I mean if you can do it a wrestler. He's had a trial will. They've they've done it before like there's a guy the guy who beat i forget his name get the guy who beat Brock leser in the finals in college. Neil neil stevens never played football and then was there like. You're big enough good footwork. They became one of the best. Wow in was also the guy who protected brady for many many years interesting. So that's why they do it. 'cause there'd be that big athletic the the nfl's gonna eat it up. They'll give them at least shot do that. I for them workout. Then get the fucking alleys of the final say you said. Nfl is probably one of the if not the hardest most talented athletes. I get all by far by far scott coker assault about this guy's well saying he's already in talks with his team to potentially them in baltimore. I mean you have to. Nfl doesn't work out. And you may route you. You've seen have you fucked and fighting france's the next year so i'd probably pass on that bubba. That's a tough gig.

"September twelfth. what fight will we. Will we be talking about being the more competitive fight. This fight between anderson silva and tito ortiz or jake paul versus tyron woodley wish for which is more competitive which fight will be the more competitive fight man. That's you're really. Put me on the hot seat without one man. You know i'm pro. I'll probably lean towards jake. Paul entire woodley being the more competitive fight. I mean at the end of the day. And i think anyone. That's picking anyone that's thinks jake. Paul is just gonna get dominator decimated by tire. Woodley's either i mean i i really think i. I'm not saying jake's ever going to be a world champion but jake's taken seriously but tyrant is a fricken former four-time champion. He's legit legit power. He's not been asking So i think this'll be a lot better fight than that. But yeah like. I don't know the anderson will knock out tito. I don't know if that will happen. Maybe but i think it could be a pretty lopsided you know couple of ten rounds in their kind of performance and at the end of the day that could be even more lopsided. And here's here's one positive way to look at this fight. Ladies and gentlemen if you enjoyed the smile on anderson silva's face when he took on julio cesar chavez junior imagine how big the smile is going to be come september eleventh when he is in there just marching around and dancing in there with tito ortiz. So get excited. I mean it is what it is. Make some money go ahead. And let's not forget. Like i said they're on this car together. I mean the potential here. Let's say because right now the delahoya belford odds are pretty close. Belfer open is a favorite over de la. Hoya you know what i mean. Let's say bell for goes out there and knocks out oscar de la hoya and anderson styles on tito ortiz. Those are two of the biggest stars ever in brazil to the biggest stars in you have see history easily. Put those two in a boxing match. Tell me that's not a massive massive card. Let's say de la hoya beats bell for but it's close or either. It's a competitive fight for several rounds. They get the better. And then anderson goes out there and styles on tito. Are you telling me they wouldn't potentially book anderson against de la hoya and you're telling me that wouldn't be a massive fight especially with anderson now to know you know in recent boxing matches so in a way. This is a plan for the future as well. And as i said. I've pretty much given up on the whole sanctity. This thing i was like they're healthy and they're not going to get hurt doing it. You know go for you know. I mean you know. I don't know if i'm ready to sign up to us. Chuck ladele do bare knuckle boxing. But if we're gonna see tito. Box anderson sure why not and then the other options we could see tito ortiz. Fight oscar de la. Hoya i mean who if what what a world we. The options are endless damon options. This would be the ultimate payback for golden boy. Mma only going one card alternate promoters revenge when he goes after he goes after it forever. Promoting golden boy. Emma may to so many storylines to get excited about but they haven't staples center in los angeles september eleventh oscar de la hoya versus vitor belfort anderson silva vs tito ortiz trailer. Fight club event. It's happening and honestly. I hope i get the hot tag to go. Cover that event damon. It should be a fun week. In la. La land but damon. Thank you very much for damon. Martin mike cac. Thank you for listening. Who knows what kind of news will be reacting to next. You're listening to the vox media podcast network..

"Know what it is but it's something but of course as you. Although by now anderson silva returned to the boxing ring not too long ago. He pieces up. Julio cesar chavez junior he looked amazing doing it and tito ortiz hasn't fought since he beat former. Wwe wrestler alberto l. patrol four camacho america. Unless you count his city council meetings but here we are damon martin. Let us bring you in here. Anderson silva has one of those moments that we were all very excited to see the smile on his face. He had the swagger back in that boxing ring. There's talks about him. Maybe fighting logan paul and now he's fighting tito ortiz in the boxing ring. So you'll one of the folks who confirmed this fight. What went over you when you confirm this information. I i was at first. I was a little surprised with that. I was like why am i surprised they. Why why am. I surprised at all that does is happening. I mean this is the day and age. We're in in terms of You know. Boxing and celebrity boxing and even mixed martial arts with a certain extent depending on how deep you want to go on other signings. They've been made over these last few years. But listen a part of me when all these five sorta i coming together. A part of me was like oh. It's ruining the sanctity of the sport. I don't like seeing these kind of freak show fights but it over time. I kind of realized you know what we've always kind of embraced freakshow fights. I mean you could argue that you know the great. The late great kimble slice when he signed on and then was doing fine. You could say well. That was a bit of a gimmick and you obviously see him punk signing. Ufc was again make. And there's all kinds of gimmick fights out there so who am. I going to begrudge two guys getting paid. I'm assuming a boatload of money to go out there and box each other You know anderson. You mentioned it mike. Anderson looked happier than ever in that boxing match. Julio cesar chavez junior like i was and it was a joy to watch a guy. Who's covered anderson for so many years and and and i'm with everybody else. Consider him one of the greatest fighters of all time to see that guy looked so happy and so joyous like doing his thing again Who am i gonna begrudge him going out there and and listen. This is a low risk. Fight tito's not a boxer by any stretch of the imagination. I mean he. He's not that what he's never been a boxer so it's a low risk fighting that regret. I mean he just pieced up as you see peace. The julio cesar chavez junior legit boxing champion over eight rounds again. You know why not why not do it. And and tedo. What i wrote the story i had to kind of remember. He's a three five win streak. He'd be chelsea on any beat ab and obviously. I know alberto l. patrol and chuck ladele of twenty twenty one or whenever they've on twenty twenty nine hundred twenty eighteen. Is it the chocolate l. But still three five win tweets. He can't say the guys on the downturn of his career and he's too old to do this so why not look. I mean i get it. There's an audience for this. People are talking about it. We're talking about it. Chiller wants to low this card up with names. Stella delahoya return totally understandable. Is this victory lap kind of thing for trailer being able to put this fight together and putting it on this card like is this something. They should be celebrating and shouting from the rooftops. We got this thing done. This is a big deal. Yeah i think to a point you after. I mean Air anderson because of what anderson did the child as junior anderson's next boxing match no matter who it's going to be is going to be buzzed about and no one is going to say it shouldn't happen because we saw what he did to. Julio these shabas junior i mean that was a legit boxing match and even though it was rendered a split decision as a joke it was a unanimous decision anderson easily won six. Maybe even seven of the eight rounds No one can say he shouldn't. Yeah there now. I'm not saying you should put them in the ring and say we're going to have the matchup with cannella where we're going to fight you triple g or some crazy like that but tito ortiz. Where's the risk i mean. Where's the risk factor in this. And then you know tito. I mean you know i mean listen again. The guys legitimately on three five win streak. And obviously he's taken an l. Off the huntington beach city council. But that's a whole other kind of thing but I listened to guy tito is still relatively active fighting recently. And we know he's still training and again i don't i know this sounds weird saying this because obviously you can get hurt in any combat sport. You're doing but i feel like this is a far lower risk for these two guys to box each other than if you were going to tell me. Hey we're going to book anderson silva against riot hall in the ufc. And that was. That was tough to watch. Seeing anderson lose that way and his last year of c fight. That was hard to watch man. I i hated seeing that in this particular case. It's it's it's low risk and high reward right now. At least from what. I could find the opening. Odds have anderson silva as a minus five hundred favorite the comeback on tito ortiz. Plus three fifty. I was surprised by this line damon. This line should be much larger for anderson sufficient. It like we should be looking at like minus seven eight close to a thousand range in this case. I mean i understand the tito's on three five winning streak in anime but he just seems like i don't know i. It just doesn't seem not that he doesn't belong but it just seems he seems like the one of these things is not like the other. Tito's like the other in this case like in my crazy. no actually. That's the prizes me i. I don't bet on fives. But i feel like i need to take out a loan right now. The money down on this one because innocent should be a nasa favourite. And that's no offense to tito. It's more recobbled into anderson me anderson. We saw what he just legitimately did to a book too legit boxer and did it very well. I mean you could argue. Maybe the size difference will be a little bit. But i mean you know they're gonna find a catchweight some even though tito will probably come in and have if twenty pounds on him. I don't know doubt really matter in the fight. And i mean let's let's not forget. There was a time years ago when tito to re-sign as uc contract. He made dana white commit to a boxing match against them and then the boxing match fell apart. And data's claim and i know this is dana. White says the data's claim was is he actually put a real legit training in and and went out and worked with real boxers to get ready and tito didn't really want to do that. Because it could potentially be an embarrassing situation petito to lose or to have a close boxing match with his boss from the ufc into never happened. So yeah i have a hard time believing. Tito's going to do well in this fight. I think anderson as i agree with you should be probably i mean. Let's just say let's be hypotheticals. Okay tito has been a size on and maybe a little bit of power. So let's mice eight hundred nine hundred but yeah i mean yeah minus five hundred like i said. I'm taking out a loan to put some money down on that. Because anderson anderson should be a massive favourite in his fight. What a fascinating time. We live in damon. Let let me let me throw this out. There just got feeling whatever comes to your mind come..

"Is this a legitimate sporting endeavour and missteps getting real. Like no man until i see him. Fight an actual boxer. I'm avs problems. call jake. Paul legitimate so ak we did a reaction podcast to this press conference it was shot all shoddy myself damon martin and we're trying to find the right words to express how we feel heading into this fight and one of the words throughout that was seemed to be. The word of most debate was excited and everyone wrestled with that word. And i'm curious. Ak are you excited for this fight. Like not the circus and not the build in the silliness the actual fight itself. Are you excited to see jake. Paul box tyron woodley. I am a legitimate excited. There's that there's that there's that word again capital capital. I'm legitimately excited guys. It's i thought i thought jake. Paul i am on record on so many of our show saying as i was super intrigued by the jake paul on venus aspirin fight. And i'm even more intrigued by this one. Because yeah i think we view tyron woodley as a little more of a striker for sure. He has highlight. Reel knockouts on his record in mma completely different sport. I understand but the thought of been aspirin landing like a ko. Blow on on Jake jake pox either towards resonating percent. Jake paul it was like a pipe like it's like that's probably not gonna happen the thought of with doing it. It doesn't seem completely unbelievable. We don't know how how Tara is going to look in a in a straight up boxing match but we know he has power. We know he's he's not the kind of guy you know. There's a lot of cracks. Ask a dad bought physique before that fight. That's not going to have a time. When the guy isn't immaculate shape which one about his performances again made me you know maybe maybe the the body in the mine aren't quite as willing to pull the trigger anymore And high lucy fight but but he's certainly still in great athletic shape and that's that's a big big sell for this fight. So it's it's just a basic primal level of Jake paul leveling up competition wise and now facing more Non tired of myself a more. Legitimate opponent woodley. It certainly feels that way. And the only way to find out if it's real or not is to watch the actual flight and that data's the appeal of it. That is what makes it so exciting. Will he be a good fight. I don't know Again how do we define good in the scenario. I think it's going to vary from person to person. But i think as soon as as soon as late night rolls around. I know i'm going to be super into it. And i think a lotta people who who tuned in are not going to regret that they that they invested their time spencer. Something tells me that excited is not one of the words. That's on top of mind when it comes despite so if you could put a word to it in terms of how you're feeling heading in august twenty ninth. What were would you use of why. I'm certainly intrigued. Because like i said i give jake paul credit for the steps. He's taken and the effort. He's committed to building himself as a boxer and trying to develop this. He's certainly much more refined at it and seems like he's put a lot more energy into it. Ben his brother who looked like he was just out there swinging swinging for the fences. And you know throwing throwing ugly punches against floyd mayweather. And i'm i'm intrigued to see what he does against. The guy that you know is is a former ufc champion and is still in great shape and should as we've said be a level up in terms of competition because this is sort of the way you see if there is legitimacy here and if there is something beyond just being spectacle here so i'll certainly pay attention in terms of getting results. Getting some you know replays and highlights through twitter but not like appointment viewing for me. Where i'm i'm planning this out to sit down on my on my couch that night and and take it all in if he goes out and beats tyron woodley. Though like even. I will come back on this show and offer a mayor culpa to aka lead to jake paul to literally everybody for me calling it illegitimate or or thinking questioning the legitimacy of this. Because he goes out there and beach. Tyron woodley then. It's something we need to talk about more and pay more attention to because then it's you know it's it's not beaten as you said. It's not beating ben askar. Who really stood not a lot of chance of going out there and land in a big shot to win that fight but tyron has that potential and he should have that or he should have that potential and we'll find out if he does first of all is nothing more legitimate than a robot being involved in fight promotion as the. They know this during their their their days of fox. And also there's nothing nothing makes fight more legitimate than a tattoo. Bet and that's what we have here. The stakes are high gentlemen. The stakes are high heading inaugural good news. Bad bet now now. Spencer is saying he will he will. He will retract. What he is he will. He will call.

You have to issue an apology via video. But riding around in a motorized cart conor mcgregor. I will find excuses there. There are certainly scooters at several big box stores around. Here i will. I will come endear one. Grab a selfie. Stick and just bomb around wrapping and apologizing to ak league. I've nev- wow i. I just through the aisles of costco. I'll have to do something as well. We'll figure that out. Yeah obviously. I'm going to put all that in. I gotta do something so Bet within a bad. This is a beautiful thing The good news is we have five or so full weeks to build upon this nights. So get your robot costumes. Ready and the buckle up and just like.

"I don't need to see a tubby biting him. I don't want no tool. Five is he was was too small ending. Wanna see this. You wanna see that tool five at this point because this is a bee's man he's super strong and i don't know at just i like is he a one eighty five i. I don't know we'll see what happens when he gets a little bit older. Maybe his his muscle mass will more. But that's out of the sun. Yeah on the flip side. We have martin vittori who goes. The distance took a ton of punishment. I think he thought he legitimately won the fight which is insane no but also smart and if he really feels that way he needs to go all in on this he should be putting out. Marvin vittori dot com and selling t shirts. He should be screaming to and from the rooftops. Sell the crap out of this gimmick. It won't get them back to a title at anytime soon. But at least it keeps his name out there. And in my opinion. I know a cliche adjective describing some of these fights over the last year. Eighteen months was a crossroads fight. And it's like a tony ferguson. This like a legit crossfire from tori either. His life was going to change and he was going to be the champion or he was going to drop way back in the rankings and unfortunately for him it is the ladder. So you mentioned this fight. Earlier i think the best case scenario he gets the winner of your iowa versus sean strict on july thirty first but he might even have to go back further than that. I think honestly hall. Strict winter is the best case scenario for him. What do you think. I wanna see him. Fight paulo costa. Wanna see him by apollo kosta now. Of course baccini gno is currently. Embroiled is the latest fighter to become embroiled in a contract dispute with the ufc. So i understand. He may become he may end up on the onto the next one band lists soon. You know it could be this. Depending how i anyway i mean. He has already responded demands. How much further. This war of words escalates. I think at some point business will be done. I think You know cost us somewhat of a reasonable complaint. Of course saying look. If i'm gonna main event a card i want more money. He's not the first fighter to say he won't be last. I'm sure But at some point. I do think he's going to bite the bullet and take a fight. I i just love to see him play batori. I think there's a lot of attitude there. I think it's sort of the The israel i assigned a championship fight. Runner-up battle i think it does. It keeps both guys in the title. Picture definitely Do you know like you said batory fell far. He cost keeps them in there. I i'm not sure how eager the ufc will be to build up a third batori fight. Should he beat cost. And it'd be somebody else As you said but hey happy if he leans into this conspiracy theory thing questions. The judges does. It doesn't appeal. How could how to fifty forty five. I want at least. I would at least two of those rounds which i would disagree with then then. It's a possibility but either way for me not even just ignoring contenders stakes. I think it's a fun fight. I just it's a fun filled with some very enjoyable occasionally awkward trash talk. I think guys would probably try a little too hard at some point. Go way too far and regardless of what happens. It would be hilarious for us. So i'll go pretoria and costume. Yeah maybe i don't know. I think i think victoria's like completely out of the title. You're more likely he if anyone falls out of one of these upcoming fights you mentioned hall. Strickland's kennedy gas lump jumps in. I think either jumps in. I don't think he was. I be surprised if he was too badly hurt from this fight. I don't think we're seeing a six month suspension. So i think. I think he stays ready. I actually think he'll be he does want to help. I want to fight again. Real soon and fingers crossed. Nothing happens to those fights but if it does i think batori in. Yeah i i think is like a great deal. A tremendous yo. I like tony walked out to the The montello theme. I know it's not the majority channel all said. Yeah i know. I said that for a reason by gun. You'll okay fine i i. Of course i know who would name. What do you call it. I'm just over pronouncing now. Of course who is a all those classes. Spaghetti westerns I'm not. I'm not like a deep into his music but i know all the most the big ones i if you're a ufc fighter and you come out to a song that's been used as the modelo theme for commercials featuring uc fighters. We're gonna make modell jokes all right. We're gonna make jokes. That's not on us are a lot of us in the media. Did it a lot of other these cool all these cool guys. Mma make findings damon. Martin took the the italian name of the song And then saying oh and by the way. This song's called whatever field goal fields whatever And you know trying to make us all feel about. Okay guys you guys are cool. You guys are cool. guess what. It's the maddelo song the medella song. I'm sorry we all know it has now So of course. Respect the great anti-american but so and this isn't listen. I understand you wanna take. Hipster stands and be like i knew you actual song but anyone who said that's the madonna song was not wrong. Nobody was incorrect. You're all right in your own different ways. You want to show off your musical knowledge in such a vast variety. Good for you but it's still a modell theme and by the way. I'm glad you mentioned that. Let me just say one thing to you centrum. Vitamins pick another song. Pick another song. I'm sitting there doing some work watching the broadcast and espn plus and all of a sudden like that song sounds very familiar in the background of the centrum. Gummy vitamin commercial. It's the onto the next one theme song in the background like gimmick infringement gimmick infringement central. Listen i just want to say. I am in canada. We did not get that out of here. This is strictly between you and mike mike. Don't get me involved in this. I promise centrum. I did not see commercial. I'm glad you're defending the honor. Our show but i definitely don't get me involved this. Please don't be mad centrum. Don't be sitting in the corner. You in that peanut butter jelly d- don't be jelly of onto the next one trying to steal our themes on trying to try trying to build upon the hard work the sacrifices the dedication that we put into this show each and every week. How dare you all right mike. Settle down said come. I'll kidding aside. Let's okay all right. i'm getting. I'm getting a little riled up getting a little of that models duty. Back to the positivity yes and support for this episode comes from locker room the app. That's changing the way we talk. Sports locker room is a sports fans. Dream come true. It's a live audio.

"Right now cool forty degrees in Calabasas from NPR news this is All Things Considered I'm also Chang and I'm ari Shapiro Saudi Arabia has sentenced five men to death and three to prison for the killing of Washington post columnist Jamal Khashoggi the CIA concluded the construction was killed at the orders of the Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman the crown prince denies that and he has not been held accountable joining us now is hollow although sorry she's a Saudi human rights activist and fellow at the MIT center for International Studies welcome hi it tells a little bit about how the Saudi justice system worked in this case was it what people in the west would consider of free and fair trial I don't think it's really up to any kinds of international standards of due process the Saudi justice system is very much like shrouded in secrecy and it's especially in this high profile cases where there's some kind of political influence we haven't seen the evidence we haven't seen the testimony we don't even know the names of the people sentenced to death exactly is there likely to be any future accountability or is this the end of it well very much dependent on how the action to this kind of the no verdict so far we've seen a continuous attempts to support and cover up the whole thing by the US administration by other entities who largely failed to all those involved in the killing specially in the leadership to account several lawmakers in the United States and international leaders have condemned what they called a sham trial at the same time here in the U. S. a state department official speaking anonymously yesterday told reporters that the verdicts were quote an important step in holding those responsible for the terrible crime accountable I don't think that's true at all and everyone knows that these people were actually following orders from their superiors of their officials it's really incomprehensible that those people would be able to board planes owned by haven't been sent man himself or by the state coordinate with the consulate now with the foreign minister in order to execute this kind of high profile getting you're describing some of the evidence that's been uncovered by third parties including do you and the CIA and the Turks that suggest a very different narrative from what the royal family's pull forward yes that's correct and these are all evidence that has not been checked or collaborated with in the process of the trial I know that although you're here in the US you've been speaking with people in Saudi Arabia how are Saudis reacting to this it's very difficult for many people especially those was honored as what are the rights advocates who are people very much concerned about the due process and the execution of justice what's the reaction been like among ordinary Saudis were not involved in activism but they seem very where this go to judge the sentiment of the public in Saudi Arabia because of the lack of spaces where people feel you know safe enough to express their opinions unless the provided spaces where you know what you know always on big disappointment basically there was a strange split screen quality to Saudi Arabia over the weekend where there was this huge music festival with famous DJs an Instagram influencers posting on social media about how great it was to be in Riyadh clearly part of a PR push by the royal family how do you square that festival with the convictions that were released just a day later well you can truly dismissing the timing the timing has been very much like crucial and all the other cases where a political email address nice have been detained it took more than two years for the case to even to reach courts and you get to see this case which is within a year has had to you know a verdict the first verdict and on the back the job of this kind of you know all the facts yup I think it's very much like part of the P. R. that has been employed from the beginning by the leadership to the service the image hello elder Surrey is a Saudi human rights activist and fellow at the MIT center for International Studies thanks for speaking with us today sure New York City has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country but second amendment activists hope that the conservative majority on the US Supreme Court will sooner or later make it easier to legally have a gun in America's biggest city and here's Martin Costi has more this is one of the few places in New York City where it's legal to shoot a gun it's the west side rifle and pistol range on west twentieth it's about as cramped as any sublet the owner operator Derren long calls it a New York oddity or pride the last commercial range in Manhattan if you have a gun license in Manhattan this is where you practice but he says having a legal gun here is really hard very very difficult to obtain a license very costly he says the city has a reputation for denying gun license applications and even gun licenses from other parts of New York state are not valid here in the city they're even strict rules for how to transport guns and weapons unloaded in a lock box with a triple a kind of a lock on that box the emission imagine would have to be separate from that box they don't want you have the ability to use farm in this situation as a result guns are just scarcer here in everyday life you see it in the stats despite an up tick this year at new York's murder rate is still much lower than other big cities and the share of murders committed with guns that slower to just fifty four percent compared to an average of eighty percent you get a sense of the city's attitude toward guns here at the NYPD seventy fifth precinct a bunker of a building in Brooklyn upstairs as the field intelligence office run by sergeant Damon Martin office isn't that big but we've pretty much covered all four walls with pictures of our gun seizures each picture is tagged with the legal basis for the seizure sometimes it's S. W. for search warrant but often it just says consent that's a big one here for these field Intel officers because that's what they do they talk to people have just been arrested and then they get written consent to go find their guns I feel like I'm doing a tremendous job and I feel pretty good about it because I have great results you see the results they hear there on the wall but here's the question this kind of police work this intense nonstop search for guns does it depend on having strict gun laws does it depend on legal guns being so hard to license with sergeant Martin can say is right now it's pretty easy for him to know when a gun is illegal you have to be licensed to license division and if you don't you're legally carrying a firearm the bottom line is they're unlicensed Kerry file no law is going to keep a criminal from getting a gun or committing a crime with a firearm that's Tom Kean the executive director of the New York state rifle and pistol association that's the group that brought the current case the Supreme Court against the city that case was specifically about the rules for transporting guns but he thinks in this age of greater judicial sympathy for second amendment rights the city's barriers to legal gun ownership in general are unsustainable and unfair if.
