"Well, the way you laid that out, it almost makes it seem like he's better off. I mean, not obviously losing, but like getting disqualified so he gets and then he could immediately make way more money somewhere else. That's the thing. What if he needs him while he's down, which is a DQ that's an L and then walks away he's out. He's not going to do that. And I looked at the lines, he's plus one 22, when was the last time he lost? The last time he lost was, okay, so he has a loss to Derek Lewis in July of 2018, but it was nothing. Both guys didn't show up like not a single punch was thrown. Legitimately the last time he lost in my opinion was the Stipe fight in Boston in 2000, UFC two, so it was like January of 2018 was the last time you lost. And they honestly, one of the biggest missteps and you see it's like, look, this is what drives me nuts about my relationship with UFC. Did I not sell you on that fight? Do you not want to watch that fight right now? Are you not all in, right? I'm seeing you the fight. I'm doing a better job of promoting the product that they are. However, I will also tell you one of the worst jobs of promotion that they've ever done is what they've done with Francis. This guy is a promoter's dream. He is the closest thing that they've ever had to Mike Tyson. If you can't get this guy on board and make money off this guy, you don't know what you're doing. And so because how much is that COVID related, though? Because I feel like the last two years they've lost their fastball a little bit with the promotion stuff. You want to know what it's really? What is it? Tell us. They want the race. 2016, they sold for 4.25 billion and you usually when you sell for that much, you don't stick around and still write the ship. It's a new owner that comes in. But who's the guy? And they got the ESPN contract too. But I thought they had the new ESPN contract that they were going to try to renegotiate or something. I thought they had incentive.

"Like I agree with Ken. It tastes great. I was sticking some green drinks supplement and it tasted like garbage and I switched over to levy greens and it's made a huge difference. It's great. There it is. I don't think you get a more honest better endorsement than that than people that are living it doing it, drinking it and showing the effects of it. The effects that you live your life that way you run a marathons, obviously it's helping you. It's definitely not hurting you and obviously as a man lost hundred pounds and he believes in this, obviously he has his judgment actually means something in the case that we're talking about or in the areas that we're talking about. So there it is. Go get them. Go get them for Christmas. Well, let's talk UFC now. You are the voice of the MMA world. Everyone's dying to hear your thoughts. This was a quick one, but we're just going to touch on the main event from the UFC Fight Night on Saturday night. Derek Lewis does with Derek Lewis does smashes. Oh my God, I'm spacing on the guy's name. The cop from Philly. Marcus, Doc, a stalker. Former police officer before the fight Derek Lewis, one of the most entertainment and entertaining guys in the sport. He said, I don't want to get in there with the police officer. I don't want to have a Rodney King on my hands. I don't want to be people see a cop beating me up in there, so I'm going to try and get them out of there. And he did just that. He did exactly what you would expect, comes forward, catches him a shot and then just annihilates him and blast car talk us right out of the ring, knocks him out cold in Derek Lewis fashion. How'd you like that fight? Listen, first of all, Louis is a smart guy. Forget about his power. That guy's got a great personality. That guy, the guy can be a superstar, because this guy has a funny person eye. He's not stupid he's smart. He says thanks. He he's got a following already. It could get even bigger. My God if he ever won a title, he's a bit like a caveman in some ways where I said that better be of not. And I admit that I am. So me and Louis could hang out with two cameras. But he he is crude and his approach and in his technique. But I'll tell you what else he is. He is explosive as how damn he's explosive. And he's athletic. He don't have the body that and God you has who's a big monster too and powerful, powerful man. But he is for a big man and a powerful man and he is one of those guys I talk about punches and not made they are born. He's born with power in the right ear and he's the only shave is of the UFC. With right hands that can knock walls down. But I didn't realize how explosive he is. How quick he could get in on you. How quick he closed the gap in. I mean, that's athleticism. That's not just the first. That's the likes. That's the overall package. That's all world genetics of this guy. And he and he knows how to finish, I mean, he's got great instincts. He's got instinct for a guy who's crude. And that's fair whose cruel in a lot of his approach a lot of his technique his instincts is so freaking good that he's got instincts. You think of a guy that's crude, you take only go forward, only throw monsters shots, you know, from all over left field right field center field and all that kind. That's what you think of. But no, this guy, I'm watching him and he had the instinct so all of a sudden troll right hand counter. I was like, wow. Wow. Like the guy came forward. It was the right hand county. He waited for it. And his sting's told him to. That is not crude. That is not primitive. That's advanced. And he's got the capability. He's got the capacities for those things. It's got to be developed more and brought out more, like a gagno. And gagne was very similar to him that he lost his sleepy. The first time, I'm sorry if I'm not pronouncing the names exactly right. I've never pretend to be awesome wells. This is not the Orson Welles show. It's the fight with teddy Atlas and Ken right out. It's not the ones who will. But we may not pronounce name always perfect, but we'll get out what has to be gotten out as close to perfect as possible. And what I want to get out there is that a Ghana was this big, strong guy, you know, his body's a little bit more fit looking, although I thought those look pretty damn good to be honest. But I've seen him look worse. But I will tell you a guy was crude in those areas and he improved. It took him a couple years after he lost his Stipe, but he by the time he got in there for the rematch, he wasn't just a big strong guy. He was. But he was a big strong guy who was better with his technique, who was more advanced, more developed. That's what lose needs somebody to help him develop in those areas the way in God you did. And if he does that, you might have a champion. You might have it more than just a guy who could play out if you cooperate or, you know, and I say it again if you Cooper by accident cooperate and you get it. But he'll get he needs more technique to go with his his natural power. He needs more of a delivery system. But he didn't need it to the other night. And again, explosively, he made his own delivery system. He delivered the paddock package. He was like FedEx. Boom. I mean, right there, you don't stop matter of fact. FedEx doesn't go through your toy. He goes to your door. That's the difference. That's the difference.

"All the time putting in the work. So i had heard. He said he'd be ready in september. So it'd be okay. I think interesting to see when that fight actually gets booked for an and how you manage not overworking not peaking you know before you have to get into camp and then managing your camp correctly so i do think everybody's just kind of waiting with baited breath to find out. Okay when exactly. Do we get to see this title. Unification bout because derek lewis fight was was so talked about and now we want to keep that going you know and then and then in the balance tanks steep as well like what's will wear see going nex were you know so i think we forget about him sometimes but i think he's waiting for the satisfied to be matchup as well. I think he is saying he wouldn't take it on the fight less in ghana or the champion. Whoever the champion is i believe so but you. I think things can always change depending on the landscape of weight class or family situation. He just had a so. I think he wants some time to be with his family as well. Baby matteo so a lot of moving parts in that division and it all starts with this title unification bout. What do you think about in ghana searle. I would still take francis over. My people. said they would take several. But i think. I think i took derek lewis over gone to think so. Obviously i pick a lot of fights. Wrong but i would take francis over. I think they match up and reach. Don't they match up and reach. I'm not positive. But i mean the thing that is a big storyline is the fact that they were all trading partners and cyril uses francis old camp there in paris and what can be gained from that i think the power of francis and ghana can never be denied and as always that x. factor that will elevate him to a different level. But the match could be very intriguing. Especially cyril cyril doesn't really care about. Maybe having these crazy exciting fights he just cares about the win doing so methodically. And with a game plan and sticking to it. And i think that is a that is a factor when you go against francis and gone out to see well. Can you really have that game. Plan against the guy like francis. I don't know so that's why we'll watch. Yeah i mean. He obviously moves a lot better than rosen's strike. But when you look at francis rosen strike he. They weren't the smoothest. Punches francis is kind of went in throwing bombs. And you just can't take one of those. So i if he lands one you finished and you wonder if he would approach serail the same way or is fast enough left and right to get out of his way. That is why we want to fight that. That would be the fight. I could probably look forward to more than anything. I think that five. Oh interesting okay. Yeah we've got a lot of fun ones coming up so i'm really particularly for this. Msg show me too. I hope i can go to help them. Not doing some shitty gig. Somewhere you know dayton ohio but yeah you're great. Thank you for coming on. I really love your. I know matt does too so fun to watch and thank you so much for coming today. Yeah the best appreciate it jim. Okay we'll talk to you soon right. Yeah all right by everybody.

"Like bantamweight can move like featherweights but also fight with that power. And i'm gonna be straight up with dc. When i think of heavyweights right and we're not think of the baddest men in the world because that's what heavyweights are. You're the heavyweight champ. You were the baddest man into world. There was no way no matter. How good josie aldo was. I was taking him over. Daniel cormack gates no way in the world. No matter how come who's man who's mon- is. I'm not taking him over daniel corny. But we wanna see you guys slow right. That's why we love mark. Because we knew he was going to step in there he was gonna punch people in the face and let people points him in the face. The game has changed now. You have to have that skill. And i think that ciro guard sister do right. He's the dude we need to see. Because when he walks rank us many walks into octagon. It looks like what is supposed to look like right. It's leigh right. it's no body fat. It's two hundred and forty plus pounds and watch him bouncing move in and out and he says the game is to hit derek lewis and not get hit. That's not normally things that we hear from heavyweights as they're walking to the octagon and when you come out with tipping hose right when you hear paul walk and the crowd is going crazy because they derek lewis is coming out. No it's a dude. From france it's doomed from france. That is in your home playing your music. Because he's not scared because he's that high level of an athlete and i think he's gonna forever change with the heavyweight division. Looks like a. My question is who beats this. Do because to me right now. He's the number one heavyweight in the world and that includes the current champion francis in god who he was tremendous right. The whole still tippin in everything was absolutely tremendous. I loved the way that the crowd reacted. It was there in. It really also shows that the fans in the crowd. They're they're not necessarily as in the sport as they think because you would know. Derek has the hiring fighter always walks right. He's walking considered chiro. Plays this trick. It shouldn't have worked. It shouldn't have worked. I knew i was cyril godson mealy pulled out my phone. Because i knew the reaction was going to be fantastic. But here's the thing you know you. And i talked about this off. Air cyril gone looks like an athlete. He's an athlete. And you said to forty nobody fat. Lean physical remember. That is exactly what we said about francis and ghana when he beats ebay now. You have a heavyweight champion. That does not look like. He's walking around the street right. Ron you can see a daniel all right you can honestly see us deep emeals which all over the place debate. looks like. He might be an accountant. Somewhere in your area right with a new haircut in the glasses you don't walking down. The street in louisiana are you. Don't see france zuganov so you have this next level guy but you know what's the best thing about zero is that this dude is just a athlete and now as mixed martial artist start to make more and more money now. The big guys don't feel like they need to run to basketball. They don't need a run football to try to get paid. They get paid inside the account and we have a clip ciro. Gone play basketball when you watch you. Watch the way he moves you watch where. He is active on the basketball court. Abi this student athlete. Look at it.

"Did you feel the same type of pressure that derek lewis felt integrating the cage against zero god. At least enough. To even say. I never want to fighting houston again because to me. It would feel like you know what my family's here my boys are here. The trade truth is out we got. We got everything. Houston rapid has ever live. Millionare's little flip everybody's here to support. Npr out in front my folks but is there a pressure or more pressure on you. When you're fighting close to home you know we're three hours away baton rouge way you live about three and a half hours away from three hours and forty five minutes from used so for me i enjoyed. That's why i did it three times right. I fought in strikeforce twice in a ufc because my family even when you get sonke you don't have enough to take care of the whole family right. So why be driving distance away. It can go and see a kid that they saw growing up. Do something at such a high level you know when you come from certain areas right. It's so abnormal for a guy to be on the stage that i competed on stage that you could beat it on that. It makes it impossible to see. But i wasn't from houston derek lives in houston. Generally people are fighting. They do really well remember. When ron guffawed anaheim any one the tide right in milwaukee. Steve coaches blew the roof. After cleveland jessica androgen in brazil beat the roles and then her first defense. She has to go to china to fight. Someone named way and willie finishes her. So it's like the whole down crowd. In more instances than not will elevate the finer but this was one of those cases. Were absolutely stopped the black these well. That's the thing right. You're talking about the black beast. Getting stuck it seemed like he had a week full of crisis that he was trying to find a way to be pumped up for this fight to be confident for this fight. But when you're in a state of crisis which derek lewis. Was you know. Rise to the level of expectation. Right you don't find a way to to raise up right or be a level higher than what your skill though. Is you fall to the level of your training and you spoke about zero guy. Being athletic zero gone being more than derek lewis so it almost seemed like derek lewis understood that and we've talked about a punchers chance with anytime derek lewis steps into ring. He has a punchers chance but zero. God said that. He said you know what he's not as skilled as other dudes That i fought. He's not as condition as the other guys. That i put dude was so relaxed entering the ring with somebody who i look at the killer when derek lewis punches people they fill it they react different. Cyril gone bro. Is running around the rain laughing at this dude getting in landing his shots landing the jabs getting out derek. Lewis is wiping his face. he's he's all. Go up into ball. He's letting cyril god take advantage of him physically. And so when you watch a dude like derek lewis on the biggest stage in the world in front of his people folded up in the way that he did. It truly showed the difference in the skill level between the two fighters in athleticism between the two fighters and from the beginning of the week from the beginning of training when he said he trained harder than he ever has in his life. I believe derek lewis knew that in view know that stepping into the octagon. And you don't have any faith in yourself. That's the result. That you get an auto know if derek lewis will ever get another opportunity to be on this stage again who is going to be very difficult for him to work his way back to disposition as you said you back to your training because those questions go into your mind when you're not prepared in you kind of fall into the trap of did i. Did i not do enough now. Listen cyril gone is a special fighter. He is phenomenal. He's just different now ryan. We spoke about derek lewis because lewis was on the marquee was was in his whole downtown but ultimately that night belonged to cyril dumb. And i wanna talk about absolutely zero god. His performance in the way that the fight looked in the way at the fight weight out. But i wanna talk about cyril gone as an athlete. I wanna talk about cyril gone in some of the things that he has done now. This cyril gone now. Has seven wins in a ufc heavyweight division. You crazy the dude. Only has three fights outside of the octagon. He's only ten in all brian right. How exciting is for. Cyril gone to look like. He looks to move like he moves but also to be undefeated and now holding a portion of the us championship. I think it's it's more exciting. For this reason. As the ufc continues to elevate at as they continue to be in the forefront of imitate these are the type of fighters you want to see. We're taking this. We're taking octagon fighting to a new level a new level of athleticism where you have athletes. Who can do more than one thing. you can do. More than just fight. Who don't have to fall back on plan b's that don't make sense. This do can play basketball. This guy can run. This guy can move. He's light on his feet. he's able to get in and out. He understands the strategic battle and technical battle of fighting. This is the next level of fighting. This is the next level of intimate to now that we have heavyweights..

"That is admitted in that is open. By france's team. They used other words. They used words of. We need more time to train. We've been traveling. They used other words but absolutely what those words meant. We're not ready to fight him. Not under these circumstances none of this time not on that date. Not right now. Another guy stepped in those exact same circumstances in stomped derek out. That's now the guy that francis has to face the. Are you guys understanding this knowing what you know now. Who would you rather fight. Derek lewis or surreal. Gone knowing what you know now. Francis could have had the path of least resistance. If he would've just said yes he would have been the one fighting derek. however that fight would have gone. It would've gone but we at least know would have been an easier. Fight than surreal measures basic logic surreal is apparently a lot better than derek. So francis who would night fight derek. Now has to fight a guy much better than derek. Is that going to be a problem for the predator. If you look at it from this perspective you can see how these cards were. Misplayed your job as a fighter everything you work for every interview. Which is a negotiation. If you don't understand what that means right he's not following the class here everything that you do as a negotiation to get to one thing. The biggest paycheck against the easiest opponent. That is what you want to do. At all times surreal gone would not have been championship conversation. They could've used this training partners. Things could've squashed it before it ever got going. Surreal gone only had nine fights. He's only been in mma since two thousand eighteen. This is not his time and we all believed it. He would not have gotten the opportunity. Francis would not be locked in there with surreal. Gone not for at least another eighteen months. This was misplayed in this was mishandled. Francis did not want. Derek is now going to take on a man who destroyed. Derek is a great match. I'm sure as hell not count francis out not at all i'm just speaking to the mindset and leading into it and following the general rule that you want the most money with the easiest opponents that went out the door was that francis decision was that the management decision. Making damn bit of difference here. We are and dana is right. You cannot script this any better. This is the fight. This is amazing. And i have been warning you guys for a period of time. The things go very quickly and why nobody has stepped up. Emerged at heavyweight yet. To replace the enigma in the of john jones versus the heavyweight champion. Why nobody done it yet. They're coming and while surreal. Just did it. I'm telling you there's five more guys they're already signed. They're already know organization not there somewhere in the world in there waiting to be discovered. They're here now. They haven't got recognized.

"Never played wrecks rec league ideas. Were i just love you comparing your athletic experiences in slow pitch softball to what zero gone did tonight one for one. It's one or it's like the same person really yes. I've met him not elaborate on it but no we had to say practices the real game right and at and honestly i think that applies at all levels they give you really love what you're doing and you're really good at it. Like cdl ghana's All the hard work is done is done in the gym. All the hard work done in the training practice everything so when fight comes around. I really believe it when when as mike put it. It's just like this game to him. It's just like he's having fun and there. Everything's everything's off on all cylinders as it was tonight. His confidence probably only growing with every round. Like i'm sure. He was very respectful of derek lewis and his reputation of course for knockouts out of nowhere but otherwise he was a complete control and i bet the fight itself was was. You know easier than he expected it to be. And i say this as a credit to gone nothing to nothing nut. Insults derek lewis. I don't want. I saw a lot of negativity after understand. People were disappointed. That ain't could see. Derek lewis really land anything substantial so it becomes you know the whole. Oh how did he get here. and he's disappointing performance. He can't win the big win all that stuff. But the emphasis should how good seato ghana's and give credit cesena white the postal press conference for essentially saying the same thing. He was asked like where you know. You think derek lewis been off tonight and he's like look this had more to do with. Cdl gone and the level. He's at than any shortcomings of of Urkel so great promotion by dale for once. Let's give credit. He he he. He did a really good job of massaging. The situation promoting gone pro. Running derek lewis. They probably will be back at the toyota center sooner rather than later given the mold deal and dirk will still be there. No reason to To to downgrade the man After what was already a tough night but see gone just just amazing amazing amazing amazing performance. Really can't say enough about it. Let me just add quickly to bad. I just what what impresses me the most about all of this as we sort of sit back and and look on the road that this guy's taken is the timeline of all of it right because when searle gone made his mma debut. Do you know when that was that was literally. Daniel cormack had just not as steep images to win heavyweight title. Like that was like three weeks after that. That's how that's how recent all of this was. He hadn't even made his inmates at the time. Dc was doing that like that is crazy to me man this road that he has been on. How fast we have watched sky really mature from this like mountain of just raw potential. That he was when he came into the ufc. Two now one of the best heavyweights in the world. Who's just doing this so calmly and coolly in front of our eyes and really like these last three fights. It really has culminated over these last three fights over the last seven months. Rosen's struck volkov and louis like all three of those dudes are so obscenely dangerous just in in every regard and they looked like they didn't even belong in the same sport. Esera gone when they were in there with him like it is just crazy what this guy has done in a in three years and i think we have to give credit to his coach ferdinand lopez who has now done this twice with two different men from from the streets a paris. Like a of all the places you find the these incredible heavyweights probably going to go down by the end of their careers as some of the greatest heavyweights. We've seen like to find these dudes in the streets of paris and in in a matter of a couple years lead both of them to u. of c. title shots. And now you know one of the mardi has gold and one of them kind of has gold but not really but it's about to fight for it like that's crazy man. That is absolutely crazy. It doesn't make sense. It doesn't make sense it's a movie. It's a hollywood script way that this i know. We'll get into it but the way that this is sort of coalesced and culminated into this fight. Now where you have. These narratives of sort of these two teammates trading partners guys who really again came from the streets of paris where no heavyweight. Mma like no heavyweight fighters coming from. Yeah and then derek are. And then i'm sorry francis leaves and it's kind of messy turns and then sort of the under study is now getting this chance to exact vengeance for the gym and for lopez in this whole team. Like you can't write this stuff man. It's incredible we'll get to the aftermath in a moment. I'm still not over ak softball. Algae i mean he's definitely an interim batting champion and the toronto be league Developmental league but i like ak said like four slow pitch softball practice when you're an elite when you're an elite athlete like alexander. Kaley things are done a certain way and you expect the john. Thank you sean. you understand. Thank you aka woke up every day and took five hundred t swings and journey to go is different size bats to use different size bats you Different weights and builds up. Yes speed absolutely casey. Where does derek lewis go from here. I mean tough. I mean this is not a good night for him. i mean again all tests. It goes to zero gonna what he was able to do tonight. And maybe derek listed feel the pressure fighting in houston. But i don't think that made any difference in the result of this by you. Had this fight anywhere. And i think it would have gone the same way. But where does he go now after a loss like this second shot at at u. of c. gold. Whether or not he just it just was not his night in any way shape or form tonight. What do you do now you know. I actually pick their lose to win. And i think all of us were shot that gone one to fight but like just he wanted dominantly and kind of exciting to and i feel i'd just i actually feel bad with their clothes. We got Any guy these paycheck but like that was he lost. He didn't get this show up tonight and it wasn't like it was got a down thirty seconds over. You got the coffee punch but like this. Yeah just like it made. You feel like they're lewis. I guess that's that's that's what's so good made you feel like douglas. Like why was even there tonight. He clearly sucks so where he goes from that. From here He goes to maine of ending. Fight night cards I don't know Taste is gonna it's gonna be it's gonna it's gonna be with us for a while but with jerry lewis and I think that when he got dominated in no absolutely no mauled by dc dc's grappler. You know and you know we knew. Derek lewis had his faults and everything but this is just wild. I mean i mean yeah..

Not so fucking heart but the thing about sarah gone. It's like his his footwork.

"Fire already zoo already. So talk about. I feel honestly. Rc like he's like the evolution of mixed martial arts at the heavyweight division. And because i know francis big at francis powerful. We've seen guys like that before. Derek lewis is like that we have not seen a cyril gone. Know a guy that moves away to the moves that can pick you apart that can keep that rage in do the things that he's dog. That's one switch. This fight between derek zero well if you listen to derrick derrick say right i got twenty five minutes to touch him one time because he has that type of knock knock out power then zero gone on the other side saying you know what i don't necessarily think he's the best i- foot you know. This is the guy he can punch but he needs to work on his cardio. He doesn't necessarily have this larger array of skill and in general vets. Not trash talk. But if i'm derek lewis that's how i internalize it. Yeah and we want to come and we wanna see a black beast that is feasting a black beasts that is chasing a black beast that is trying to get that knockout on. I think we see that this fight and the winner of this fight understands what's the next challenge and even though you say to fight was born right you you say you didn't enjoy to fight. I remember a guy who used to play football talking to a former two division champ and saying that he thought another fight was born and all that guy told me was well. He won the fact that derek news derek. Lewis won the fight where you're fighting a guy like for instance and god knew that's what it takes that fights not that boring the next time and i believe what we see. This saturday is what we will get in a fight like that. And so two you. If zero god stands in front of derek lewis and show that a skills will we see that francis and gone new zero gone matchup or will it be derek lewis francis and god. I'm gonna tell you one thing. I can't pick that. This is what i love about. My job called the fights. I don't have to pick pick but guess what you'll learn inviting people hate when you pick against them. The fighters are the most sensitive human beings on the entire planet. But here's the thing for cyril gotten. This is massive because this gives them an opportunity to be in front of a big striker puncher. Like he's going to see in france and gone or not using for one fight josie aldo returns. One of your this is one at a guy. All right tell you that from conversation one you have always liked. And he makes the return on saturday. In the coleman event. How would you do the we see in the return. Because he's got another big step up he's out another big massive fight in front of him. You thank you you go back to watching him against pr guy. And he really just picked them apart Josie auto came out. Aggressive is first time back down at the weight and so now we get to see him against another fight moon. You'll soup needs this fight yet. He both of these guys are necessarily not necessarily gatekeeper. But trying to be back in a situation where it counted as contenders. He and a auto. I told you this a long time ago. When i told you why i liked conor mcgregor. He was the first small individual. I was actually scared of. Can we see that type of explosives explosiveness. Do we see it again. Or does josie aldo. Even if he wins tonight never get an opportunity to contend for a championship. Is he's a guy like anderson silva who we will see fight other dudes who are coming up in the ring so they can say. I fought anderson silver i fought josie aldo. And now the ufc and dana. White gets to say you'd be the legend we can move you up and make you a contend josie aldo still is very viable. The problem is when you've lost it a champion right and you have recreated yourself to get to this weight class. It's hard to envision a time where he becomes that true contender again. Is it not possible. I will not say that. Because i will never pull the curtain back on a guy that wants to fight right. I can't do that. i refused you. But if you look at everything. Pedro munoz jones a algal. It does not look like right. Now is a time. Where does two are going to be contending for championships. Especially when out. Jemaine sterling is fighting against peoria. Yon in tj dillashaw kind of waiting in the queue. But this is a great step in a very fun fight yet. That will lead to something bigger. Especially for pedro munoz. Avian get past joe's aldo. Which will not which will not be easy. Josie still possesses unbelievable power. He's still extremely athletic. In the guy is still motivated to become a champion regardless of what we talking heads. The guy that's still wants to talk here. What's he wants he wants you. Hold that belt. You never lose that desire to become the ufc champion. I know that josie although that's still burns deep inside of him but let's get back to manscaping. We go one more time to our good friends over at manscaping now.

"Just the pressure of the fight mounting up and his awkward you know social skills against that he thinks he has or whatever honestly people love them the press conferences. You know he would say now He doesn't have to worry about that. No more you know this up have just show up for the fight. And and him as boy. Nate just like on immigration. You've you gotta put him in that list of fighters that walk out there and they're ready to sling so gooding that he's In ready to go. How about greg hardy. Finally pushing back on the black beast basis. Always come at greg hardy. For the not just allegations. He had a conviction back Through an appeal process. I guess everything away. But basically i'm going to do with domestic battery domestic assault whatever. It's called a different labels in different states and So derek has said in his lifetime. He experienced that in his family. And i'm trying to remember what was said on off cam. So that's why. I'd think about it for a second. But i'm told us he's very sensitive to it because of how he experienced growing up and because of that he has actually come at greg. Hardy pretty pretty hard now. Greg hardy was just come through the ranks. Honestly just as just starting off his rear addenda series but now known and he's on his part on saturday versus suivant. His skills gotten better to and starting to push back and call. Derek lewis convert loses said that openly. He did do prison time. James's life around. And but i can already goes. This was going to start to build up already big. And it's gonna to be a big fight at some points along as they both keep winning actually with derek established. He doesn't need to win his next three. He could go wanting to wants to these. The bike bass for crying out. Loud greg hardy. Obviously we need to keep winning to get to that top three level that derek recites at right now. I don't know. I go back and forth on it because greg hardy. I want to say get special treatment. That they definitely nudge them in certain directions right. They help him out a little bit. So maybe that road isn't as far as it seems but right now i've been great. Hardee's the ways speaking. He's speaking as they're on the same level and they just they just. Aren't you know he's back up here. He's somewhere around here so things have to happen for them. The meat but i'm not so sure it's that much especially when you create heat right. I mean that's what sells fights so if the banger of a fight. I just don't know when we'll see it and i hope we see it while they're both still in there in their prime. But greg hardy gets better with every fight. This is the second sport that he picked up. You know he's still learning. And eric isn't like they're still kind of green in a way to. He's still learning things adding things to his repertoire. So think when it when it happens. They both hit so hard that anything can happen. But really if you look at derek lewis's he's i think he's gone away from being the black beast and just i mean the dude is actually added some really good weapons. He has a formidable attack. I think he's a true mixed martial. Artists at lewis keeps winning. It's gonna be hard to make this fight before maybe even three because he has gone ahead. I'm here in a month or so. Then the winner unifies within gone in probably late this year. And then i titled fence would not be greg. hardy greg. Hardy would need to win another three fights but two losses definitely step up. So we'll see but you know. Lose jobs by the one thing. Louis loves to do is fight. Frequently loves to get paid. He almost doesn't care who the name is. And when it's personal. He does not mind putting them big paws on his opponent. So i think it's a lot closer than people think but as as long as they're louis keeps winning then it stretches out for at least two years where we're maybe two years away from that we would need hardy to immonen through all his name's in to eventually get a tight shot because that's where derek lewis would be it'd be the interim than the undisputed and then he'd be an undisputed wants to defend. I don't know but i hope that happens sometime. I think it would be tremendous Mcgregor and why can they break point. Four million pay per view buys. I don't think so Number timbale is mcgregor versus as at one point. Six five million. So that's how special habib connor was it. Shattered by seven hundred. Fifty thousand babe reviews so the next one downs. One point six five million. I think it can be that because in the narrower. Seen some big numbers trilogy. They're both exciting fighters But two point four. Ooh i don't know man. We're going to have to see how this press conference goes. Press conference wins. These are like really valuable days where we think about it the nhl. That's done right. That's one less thing to worry about. You got some soccer going on an mba. but really. i think people will probably be starving for some kind of entertainment on the weekend. So if you can just get that that clip that espn clip. Get shown know. Somebody's shoveling somebody year. Somebody gets in. Somebody's face it might be enough to get people to want to buy it. So it's definitely a possibility will know in the next couple of days here. If that generates even more buzz but right now honestly. No i think on with you i think if big break two million that'll be.

"The show all right well. It has been quite the week for this man. This past saturday came through a dominant performance against alexander. Volkoff in the nfc vegas thirty. We were wondering where he would go from there. And it turns out less than forty eight hours later. We found out he's heading the houston texas on august. Seventh you two sixty five's unified derek. Lewis for the interim ufc heavyweight championship. Zero gone joins us right now. Sarah how are you sir momentum. I'm good on you. i'm good. This has been quite a few days for you sir. Let me just start off with this. You win the fight on saturday. When were you approached with this. Derek lewis fi. Like how quickly did this happen momentum. Little bit tired. Before we knew that because uc santa message to out a best and final best do tonight and maybe after after after this one out of the good news in. I understand the what's happening. Ishai ishani the fighting and the win just arrived in france on monday. We vadym is atta. Yeah outside of the ucla year now are so you knew this before the fight itself like this is already on the table yes is well not exactly clear but But yes yes but but we can talk about that but when you don't have the contract is not official so but when you that i was a stay really focused on the fight against because we miss to win the fight fall for how the chance to fight I was really focused and we did it so on monday. When you find out this news that it's official. How did you react to it like how. How did you react to finding out that. It's a done deal. Your next fight is for an interim title on some. I was really happy with the ib because for me for me in some things some things i mean young guy just a write in and i'm a hundred headline after just threes in the hand inmates. All that's really crazy. I've been up here clearly. You're not gonna turn down an opportunity like this but obviously came as a shock to everybody. Especially since this whole thing. Started with the idea of francis and ghana fighting john jones and it went to francis getting ready to fight derek lewis. And now it's you fighting derek lewis for the title. I knew you know about it. Like i know you knew about it right before the fight with volchkov but were you surprised that this opportunity came your way yesterday because because we knew no mattie would be of hans against a directly with but the i have the fans are not come on free fighting. This chose me do you do you kind of feel for francis in the situation. Because from all accounts he would have been ready to fight and september against derrick lewis. He just won the belt three months ago. Do you kind of feel bad for him in this situation because he or the rest of his team. They apparently didn't seem to have any clue that this was happening. No no no. No no. But i can understand i can understand but no because For me you just you just. It's a it's a an only in english. you just enter data so trump. John's steelers conscious saw notaries. Okay this is just an interim daito saul so for me if i was Is nothing for me. Okay so if you are in francis issues just like these guys are fighting for an interim title. It effectively could be my next opponents. But it's still the world champion actor so you're now in this spot but i do want to go back to how you got there because you beat alexander volkov. I thought you did a fantastic job mixing things up. You kept him guessing. You stayed out of his range just enough where it seemed that not only was it effective but it seems like you are frustrating. Him throughout the fight as well a key. He just couldn't get to you as effectively as he wanted to. How would you grade your performance. Over on saturday Maybe maybe all for me was really good performance Because we knew we knew like to to make a pressure on a is a on the formula site. Make a pressure destroy. the man. and i've decided i'm exhibition and without them. Yeah i thought it was a fantastic performance so with with that win. You're in this crazy position. Almost three years to the day you make your professional debut. You're fighting for for a ufc title. Has this whole ride just been like a whirlwind for you. Have you been able to smell the roses and all because it really is incredible to see how quickly you've put yourself in this position. Naturally you should know. I'm ed my gym so we go by already At work so we don't have time to do to do time all fall from happy that by the let's get you can do that after your career right like is there's no resting at all for you right now. So now. derek lewis is the man who stands in front of you. He's won four straight. Got back to back. Pretty ferocious nocco. It's it's not always pretty when derek fights a boys that effective because he only needs that one shot. What do you think of the matchup and think of derek as an opponent suits guy with a dangerous and we know that like jazz like jokes when the one that wanted this guy that you just one nine you down. And that's very that's very dangerous. All i think got imagine that jim and you never threatening. I think we're going to do that. I think i think i have some skits to them. Have you been impressed with what he has done. As of late because he seems to be evolving a little bit more. There is a little more technique to his craziness if you will most civic the knockout. He had against curtis blades. Have you been impressed with what he's been able to do. As of late..

"derek lewis" Discussed on You're Welcome! With Chael Sonnen

"We all want to see that. Sure we do backup. There's a story here. How did we get here. I know you're thinking that remnants seems to be like the elephant in the room. How we got here is very simple. So let's enjoy the the drama along the way which is the back and forth going on right now between the manager of engano and dana so surreal fights over the weekend. Right quick timeline. No you know what let's back up. Even further and ghana wins the championship over steep. A and gano goes to the press conference and donald says. The only thing i want is to stay busy. Where does that statement come from. And ghana was named the number one contender after. He defeated rosen stroke. Dc and steep a are already signed. But they're in the future. Now we at this point in the sport have never had a number one. Contender identified that gives to sit out and wait win. The championship match is further out. This has never happened so that forced engano to wait until the championship match. Let these to get it settled. Then you've got the recovery period for in this case was steep bay and ghana's got away then you got to have a little negotiation period and god got away. Then you have the sign in the training camp. And ghana's got away so. I fully got one in ghana was talking about. He was rewarded for his good work with the number one contender ship inadvertently. He saw it as a punishment he didn't go to go to work. No problem learning lesson. But when donald says i want to stay busy i took him at his word. I took him in his word. Because of what i just stated so starts to be some quick dialogue about john jones versus in gano. John doesn't want to do it. Okay derek lewis. Who's the top contender. Had that win. Beat a come back from behind over curtis blades or not. Derek lewis had also defeated and ghana makes all the sense right. There was a major respect being shown to john jones. Even though we'd never fought in that vision look dude. You're really good at if you wanna come up here. We'll give you the opportunity but absent that falls to derrick. Oh makes perfect sense. I've stated for you. The obvious just reminding you how we got here. Something comes out from in ghana side. That he doesn't wanna fight derrick. He's not afraid he's not scared. It's not one of those little childhood playground moments. He what he wants to john. Jones fight can't get you john jones. Don't have john jones. Have derek lewis giving you derek lewis. We don't ever get a real clear answer from the champ. Timeout in ghana. But we do hear some rumblings that he's still going to do what he can do to try to hold on and get a different match that he doesn't want derek. We're hearing that. He was going to fight derek in july. And i know what you're thinking. July's upon us. Yeah right. i'm thinking that to which tells us that didn't get done and we know that derek was at the table. I spoke to derrick. I can tell you for sure. Derek was at the table. We heard dana. Who spoke publicly. Said that's the fight to make us fight. We're going to make so we know dana is at the table. But we don't have the fight so that tells us by default that it's on francis site. I have to lay out that order or on being wrong. It wouldn't be right for me to tell you. That francis didn't want fight derek. Because i don't have evidence of that and francis has never come out and say that. And that wasn't even speculated. We got to that interpretation by default of derek's at the table dana table. We don't have a fight okay. Dana comes out and announces. It's going to be surreal versus derek. Interim championship team. Engano throws her hands up. How did we get here. And now they've they're the offended party. By the way they are the aggrieved party which is a wildly interesting. Take wildly interesting francis. Stay with me guys. It seems like everybody got what they wanted. Except now everybody's pissed right. Welcome to the world of francis doesn't wanna fight on certain dates that's true. He's admitted to that. I don't wanna fight until september. Okay this fight is going to happen sooner than september so it sounds as though you can't be in the fight we're going to hold the fight. You don't wanna fight until september. You don't have to no problem. You can have what you want i now. This is dana. I want a heavyweight title fight prior to then i am going to go get it. I'm going to go do it with these guys. It seems as though everybody's getting what they want. And the one thing that francis i believe is missing is whatever. He does next against gong or derek. Lewis is going to be much bigger. It's much bigger now now. None of this was meant to be a reward to francis but none of it was meant to be a punishment either. Dana has a job to do which is to book fights on certain dates. It is his job. Had anybody else. Done what dana did. They would view themselves as organized and they do. Dana did but for some reason. Dana coke at the garden party. Put it in this perspective k. Fighter fighter doesn't have a boss fight runs his own schedule. A disciplined fighter will write that down and honor it whether he feels like it or not. That is how he will stay. Organized fighters going to work at at three o'clock on friday fighter calls his coach now fighter lined up fighter. Wrote this down fighter plan to do it but he went a little out of order. He hasn't yet told the coach so he calls the coach on a wednesday he says. Hey three o'clock on friday. Meet me at the gym. Do emit workout coaches can't do it. For whatever reason it does not matter. i'm hurt. i'm sick. I'm taking the wife out. It's my kid's graduation. Whatever the excuse like or not if he can't show up fighter still has to do the minute workout at three o'clock on friday so he does what he calls somebody else and maybe it wasn't his first pick but he calls somebody else and he will continue making calls all the way down to a teammate. Who isn't even very good at holding minutes but he will make it happen because at three o'clock on friday that's what he has to do. It's the exact scenario that dana had to go through.

UFC Fight Night: Derrick Lewis demolishes Curtis Blaydes

"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.
