"Right so that is crazy stuff. I don't know how he's going through it all and honestly. I don't know how he's doing it with a smile great perspective. I'm sure the whole experience would be a lot more tolerable if he was coming off a win. But man i have so much respect for Dan hooker and The way he's doing this. I mean it's it's pretty admirable is sticking about being you know locked away from my kids and being able to see them but not hugging them. I mean that has to be incredibly tough. Plus his internet connection over there is really bad. I mean you can't even you can't even play video games over there. Do you pass the time. I have no idea anyway charlotte. Dan hooker looking forward to his return. And i love his perspective on his career and his record. All that stuff if you want to listen to the entire interview go check out the espn youtube page. dot com. We got everything over there. Uncut unedited that's where you need to be if you wanna watch these interviews. Speaking of espn amaze youtube channel. My full interview with sage north cut is up right now like i said at the top. He's returning to action for the first time in almost two years on april. Twenty eight one on tnt four. that's what they're calling. These events is going to be four of them on april seventh fourteenth. Twenty first twenty. He's a part of the final one against the japanese anime. Legend himself. xinjiang okay. It's taking place at one hundred. Seventy pounds haven't seen sage since his brutal vicious knockout loss to cosmo alexandre back in may of two thousand nineteen of first knockout loss. Lost twenty nine seconds suffered eight facial fractures. I mean the pictures afterwards of him in the hospital. Where absolutely gruesome. What a nice guy. What a lovely young many still. Just twenty four. It's amazing feels like he's been around for a long time but still just twenty four years old. I don't think you rent the car yet anyway. I spoke to him a little bit about his time in the ufc and also dana white comments after that loss where he said. We're dana. white. Said that sage should retire should retire to one knockout loss and was curious What's h thought of that especially considering their once close relationship. Here's a snippet of that conversation when you first signed with you have cr are really big deal to them. Dana white was very invested in your story because you came from the contender series when he said after the fight that he thought that you should retire and gave you props and said he really liked you but just didn't think the sport was for you. How did that make you feel. Well i mean that was only one fight so i mean you gotta look the last fights before that i was on. It was a three fight win. Drink a three or four or five. Nine that i got way class i knocked out by my very last opponent. Ufc along the last two or three weeks before that so I was on a win streak and it was just. It was just one fight. It has happened to be one fight in injury that showed up from everyone. Injury sometimes so For me. I didn't listen to that. Because obviously i'm no longer fine with you have see so i can say whatever they want. A mr watkins say something allocation. They should fight again but that's not the case. There was one flight. It isn't it crazy. I mean you're twenty four now back then were you twenty two or twenty three at that point in may have you know might have been twenty two. Yeah okay so twenty. Two twenty career people already you off after one knockout loss. It's a little breezy. Right i mean the the the willingness to just jump off of someone's bandwagon to your point. You're on a winning streak. I do are you the type that ain't eating a lot of stuff like did you let that get you. Are you able to block it out. No no. I'm actually really good at blocking that kind of stuff out but i do. Sometimes i'll read stuff here there. Here's something i'm like okay. Yeah i says people have good advice. People say something. You're light as you make sense one last week or it was one fight. You could say that about anybody like literally. You watch auto fight conor mcgregor and it gets knocked down five seconds literally. I was the fighting that fight. You could be like. Oh jose were the best of all the time he retired. Never ever fight again or you said about t- dillashaw I mean all these people like they're the best in the world have been beat sometimes their life even beat super-quick and like it doesn't matter if the best in the world or whatever me being younger i had so much room to even get better so for me. It didn't make sense. Someone's it's amazing. You know a as. I was thinking about speaking to for the first time in a while. Your story was so much fun to cover when you came onto the scene in the afc and it's amazing to me that it was six years ago. Twenty fifteen sage. I mean holy smoke. And you're still only twenty four. It's unbelievable how young you were when you came in there when you think back on that time when you took everyone by storm and you were. You're such a big draw. And they were pushing you so hard. What's the difference in your mind between the sage that i'm talking to today in the one from six years ago the only difference right now. Is that my last fight. Didn't goes plan so that's a name but you know that's the past that was. That was my last fight. Now it's onto the next fight so Designed difference if anything. I'm gonna be the better in more fair and Can go out there better. It's like a sound like a more dot hill one loss and by the way it was implying that i thought maybe a little wiser. I've matured a little bit of change that i mean. I'm assuming you've changed a little bit in the last six years right right right. Yeah they wanna definitely yeah. I would agree with satellite The my knowledge and stuff jin gidget go through something like that Like toma last. Go through that and overcome like that. It's a big thing that a lot of people will be too afraid to overcome or too afraid to get back out there worried about something so yeah i just i feel like the also i got married so that kind of that kind of a is a little different to all right so again. If you want to listen to that full conversation go to the. Espn mamane youtube channel right. Now thank you. Very much to sage to max to dan hook to.

"Let's say hello to one of the best lightweights planet journey. It has been for dan hooker. Of course we last saw action in the mid to late january when he fought michael chandler at you have c two fifty seven. Unfortunately things go his way but what a story he has to tell him. He's kind enough to join us here from his hotel room in new zealand. In auckland to be exact. Are you knockin right now. Dan yeah. I'm an oakland. So i got the i got the exact same quarantine hotel that i got last time. Say luck of the draw. You don't get to pick which one you go to kinda just put it out of the hat when you arrive. So i got off the plane and i got the same one. So it's good it's It's like right next to the the suburbs. That i live. So it's it's a lot easier for people to come down and visit me through the through the fence now dan. You know you posted that picture once again of of you looking at your family through. The fence reminded me of the picture that you posted in june. And say man. I give you so much credit. I see the smile on your face. I see the way you're handling this. It gives me anxiety knowing that people are going through this. You haven't seen your family. I think down forty five days and you have eleven days left right if my math is correct from the picture posted yesterday. How are you handling this. How are you dealing with all this Sign up for it. So it's what i knew. I knew i was taking a risk when i took the fight. And it's just it's just part of the roller coaster a fighting under these times like this strange times. But i'm not. I'm not the kinda guy that passes up. I'm lucky that my wife is is tough as nails. She's she's been handling it real while she's cool. She's she's backing me. One hundred percent so that makes things a whole lot easier. This is like the hot. it's been it's been quite a cool experience up until the quarantine you gone. Overflight island but allen was cou had on an island fi. Obviously go the way But after that. I spent four weeks in dubai and found a cool. Jim came out in dubai With with a lotta guys trained within tiger multi. Because obviously they a lotta guys. Don't wanna do the two week. Quarantine to get into thailand so they they end outgoing to dubai and the uae and flying through this. There's not a friendly faces that guys. I trained to f- tiger multi a lot of good level label fighters brinda long game from pf l. timothy nation can who's fighting for the one. Afc lightweight title A lot of friends. A lot of good fighters I was lucky enough that it had a good time. They had good. I've been on the match racing and doing your with those guys and just exploring the city in. I had a good four weeks has just once i got here. We go here they. It's not good for the soul to be to be cooped up in a room like this into be like there to see especially. I would imagine your daughter she. She's so young and you probably just wanna hugger and swisher writing kiss her. Can you describe what that feeling is like to be so close to your loved ones your wife and daughter but not being able to actually touch them. It was actually a bit surreal. I my daughter's quite quite funny sees i completely uninterested in token to me on the flying. You can talk to her on the finite. She's completely she doesn't like to talk on the phone. Which i guess is a good thing you know. She's not that interested in devices or anything like that but yeah that was that was weird because he helps out with a kind she was just. She was just confused. She said she's at an age now. A wish he understands a lot of things that you can you ask for things in have a station so la than in the fifth time you know the time she was still of asia and really understand what was going on but couldn't couldn't really express a but now she's just she's just abused as as the why Why she can't why she comes through this fancy. Give me a hug but tall. Eleven more days more days candidates is this one of the hardest things you've ever been through stiffly new like a new experience Definitely taken them next time. Let's just say that. I'm taking him time I'm not doing a car. In dina where i go. I'm staying mr say down. I'm not coming back. it's funny man. 'cause you see like You see however announces the world. You see the guys. Some guys on fire island getting flown in on private jets is. I've seen them off like back in their countries and they get qasr and things like that. We can't even get the wifi password. Does i must finish. My citizenship will be up for sale is of course you know. Once you're out life is a lot different over there than it is here. I mean you don't even have to wear masks from what i understand right. Yeah like it's it's just a completely it's just a completely different uprights like everyone. Everyone's doing the best with what they have. you know. we're just lucky that we're a small island in the corner of the world so it's very easy for us to shut it off new zealand's just just starting to go with the nation's strategy so it's like whenever it is one or two cases will just shut down and square them away in wrap it up so you know every every country's just working with it you know doing the best doing the best with what they have and so could you tell us. What is the daily schedule. Because i understand you're allowed to go for a walk outside for an hour in the morning. What are the rules. Were the do's and don'ts while you're in there for two weeks yes. I'm lucky that i'm at a at a pretty cool hotel. Like a when israel calibrate came back there were one of the hotels in the city is no out outdoor space so they had the book and half an hour the thing they were allowed Like half an hour and they don't want people sweating and breathing heavily on each other so they they weren't allowed to No vigorous exercise. So you couldn't run going to do push ups or anything like that but he this like a big open space where i can go out. You just have to book in so broken Just an hour in the morning but you have to any vigorous exercise. You have to do before thirty. Am so he got like a window they look your our and five am seven fifty a m. So you've got to elevate a win. You gotta you gotta get out of it if you wanna. If you wanna go for a run saw you know get out About six o'clock in the morning and and start running and start moving around but yeah after that you can get out and like see friends family and walk around by but you can't Exercise outside after that and then the rest of the day. You're are you lots of go out as much as you want or you can only go out during her blocks of time. Yeah you have to. You have to like bulkin like if it's full then then you can't go out so you just set the book the a book and a time with my wife when she can come down a win friends one visit you just you just book in a time. So yet is is funny but like it's a lot stricter ban nam than it was the first time fish time when i came through it was still compared to this. I thought it was a super tense last time but compared to this it's a it's a whole another level. I think there were a few a few cases. Where whisking getting out through the mount managed facilities through the quarantine facility so now. They've got a running like a real tight ship here now. You know i this forty eight hours you arrive. You have to stay no room until you positives. And then off the day twelve to fourteen. You have to stay in your room as well and and what are you doing in your room to.

"Think that's a great spot. More likely than not more people will see your fight when you're fighting on espn on the prelims. As opposed to the pay per view. How did you take that did you. Did you even care at all. It's like people were offended on your behalf. At least on. Twitter offended on your. How dare they put him on the road. I mean i got. That's nice are nice to people. It is all explained to these people right now. The politics behind that position. That's actually like you said area. Probably the most senior position on the entire fight card. The most is on me. Like i said i've had a pretty decent off so let's give me in front of a lot of is is what i'm thinking of. Excuse me at the same time being in the prelims an ego city. I really am really like. I'm not real attached to my eagle at this point i i know what i am. I know the things that i have accomplished. It doesn't affect me to be seen more. And i will be seen more like more. People will tune into that will carling on right before the meeting card ceremonies watching that one. Because it's the end of the prelims to and it's kind of like the leadoff hitter baseball. I look at it everybody's back that's usually the The fight that people wanna see almost every single time. They put these cards together. I'm excited to be in that position of and to not be on the main card like i said i don't get paid more if london card i get you know. None of us fighters get paid any different. Whether one of the main carter prelims so if people want to stand up for anything stand up for that stand up for it off. The guys on the main card paid in the most money. I guess if that's something to stand for really. I get paid the same regardless of on on the bottom of the prelims the top of the navy bit. I'm on set contract so really what matters is getting in front of the most is and i believe that position gets more is in any other retire fight car. It's logical When you won the bantamweight championship in wc even when you came over to ufc case. Kenny hadn't even debuted yet. You've been doing this since two thousand five. You're at during your sixteen pro year. How much longer do you want to do this for. You still enjoying it as much as as as you did back. Then i do. Enjoy it I don't have an answer. For how much longer do this. I just take it one fight at a time right now. I i like you hear so much at my body feels good. I feel good. I'm over to the practices. Getting through the camps. A three round camp was much easier to get through the fiber. Can't tell you that now like much easier it. It's not even comparable because those extra to ten minutes of fighting in camp. I mean you actually ends up. Being used to fights ed's being fifteen minutes because you've got to do six rounds. Prepare for five four rounds to prepare three so In that's camp that's in just practicing so I don't have an answer from the song. Do this but i feel really good. My body to this fight healthy with no life. Things no injuries. So that's a i. I got a little baby of my eye. But it's healed and i just want to go out there and do my job you know and find. Nc the truth what would a blessing to be able to see the truth where nobody can cancel anybody because feelings hurt then. What a great thing. That's why we do this. And lastly a. Casey did an interview with may junkie. Recently any talked about how you are calling. One of his early fights don't know if it was his debut but certainly early in his career and you were critical of his wrestling but he did eventually get taken out. He said he gives you props. You called it like you saw it. But he has used that criticism as motivation him. Up against the cage has wrestling you calling fight. And you were saying that he needs to do x y and z from these. Use that as a little motivation to do even remember that a and b. Do you think he has gotten better at that aspect of the game since his early running. Ufc if i'm doing my job until in the troops like zach that's the thing about the sport you tell the truth i if i offended to. That's not my intention. My intention is to tell the truth. This i just like i said the whole time and this is the game. We play this what i love. I told my truth. He didn't go into that. What did he do he took it. Like water off the duck's back. It rolled off. He made adjustments. This guy is on the three fight winning streak. He's made the adjustments in the grappling. He looks great on defense. He looks great grappling. He looks great with a standup mixing. It up he switches dance. Yes i think. Casey can made vast huge improvements in his game. Huge and i believe that as a commentator that's partially our job of card is to keep it real you know one of the things from dc that a lot of downs kind of serious you know. I'm just playing with him and stop. But it's like this isn't a game when you see dc on fight week. He's not this jokey talking about being fat and that it's an advantage. He's not that funny guy. He's dead serious like i am. And i like to pay the same respect to these fighters on fight week in a fight night as if i was fighting myself because their head could get kicked off their shoulders. What happened to forget what could happen. Everybody in it's not a joke to me. It's not a game to me. I studied fights. I pay very close attention to each style because these fighters lives are on the line. And i believe that when you see. Dc by it. He knows his.

This and that but boston is not about power in mean like this is teddy. Saying like boxing is about. Boxing is about angles. I q and setups in and there's so much more things in a lot of people keep saying you can't beat a box you have no power. I'm like i never not a best box in. The world is a guy who's a power puncher ali. Floyd is considering the best box in the world right. He ain't he knockouts but he's not a power puncher is all about says about. It's all hitting angles about this and that it's about iq so i maybe biased. But i don't care. I'm gonna hold it shows otherwise. I would have been disappointed if you did say yourself. That's that's the way you should feel about yourself. And could i just ask last question. I lied will you entertain anything other than a title shot at the next like. Is there anything. Even that is of remote interest compared to that. I mean we see what happens in all said happens. You know i. I'm just as the floor man. In our ida. I not matchmaker matchmaker agent.

"There a for sure for sure. I think at some things. So i end my career around around Fully community five. Or maybe even a fully committed seventy who knows all That's what i see. Always we see what happens in all just commandment my coaches they want commitment. I won't commitment. Usually one commitment. Seems you want commitment. So let me see what he could. Could i ask In if you don't answer totally fine. What do you walk around. Come away right now. I'm in la right now. So i got the a. visor now so i'm in hollywood so hollywood the you don't really say too much tonight is like no scales there in your hotel room. I haven't seen a scale for for months. Well i'm just wondering 'cause once like one fifty five. I understand one. Seventy though is a pretty big jump from where you're at now. Yeah i mean you should happen. You know like i said i. I love food. Decent food muay eating everything that i worked for and And we should happen on. The time will tell all and i'm i'm just loving it right house the cut like this past cut. How was it for you great. I mean super great. I mean we we just keep. I'm not gonna lie it sucks. It's cutting way you know. But we keep finding little tricks and trades that make it make it a little easier. But it's tough. I mean instead of tough cut and I just i feel good man. I i mean the my my strength and conditioning went good nutritional Fiance really got me on the right track with eating right and even offseason eating right so i just everything is firing on all cylinders right now. wanted us to question a. Can you confirm that was in fact you on the skateboard. During that conor mcgregor interview with the fire. is a very funny clip. I'm sure you saw it. He says max was that in fact you on the skateboard. Oh one hundred percent. It was funny. Because i was riding a skateboard end. Then i just happen like We know where. All the usc stuff as. Yeah you know like from the windows and stuff and we had to go. All week allergies telling one animals. Like funny like bombarding someone's interview. I was like because i can stupid riding. My skateboard like Like doing student movements and then of course connors the guy in amount like oh man that blanda a did you actually see him because you were in the same motel. Did you have any interactions with them. Now i didn't run into him at all. I didn't see him no. I wasn't able to see him at all on our ran into his coach at wiz eating dinner. One of the places on his downstairs Cavanaugh then he. John had his baby babies little cute. Little thanks Okay what did you think of his performance against us. What did you think of how that fight played out. I mean when when you see what happened in a dustin winning their did his thing Did all this did you know Dare fuzzy could. He do a certain way of fighting with with dustin Reminded him that zimei Got caught limit mindset boxing. But doesn't it is thing man you can take nothing away from. Yes do you think he needs to. Maybe go back to his old striking style. That was the big talking point after the fight that he was too flat for the to boxing like as opposed to his old ballot on his on his way. He has little more balanced Squatty kick in got some great kick saw i. I don't know what you need to do. To be honest you know i just. I know that he'd be back better than ever like he always does and We see what happens in the next few months what happens. Who do you think wins the trilogy. And don't say the best man win. lose your pick. You know both these guys very well. I i don't know it's one guy shows up. And i mean it's what guy goes up that night you know and Dustin showed up one night One night in phnom. We're gonna find out who shows up on the third in you're vocal about kind of being that guy that may be can bring hubby battle. Retirement is that it had a list of bucket list of the guys. You wanna fight before it's all said and done at the top Kabibi is Is one of them for sure. I mean as i keep telling his legacy fighting. Alan fights that cement my name forever in this sport even long gone. He's one of the guys as up there for sure. He did what he did. A is one pound for pound fighter in the world and he's retired As a lot of men saw i i would. I would love to should guard. I know we're supposed to did that. did Supposed to run at one time. I mean you can call him vice but i think so minded. His press conference was the best press conference you ever saw in his lifetime so i think it was great. Why do you think it was one of the best i mean. Where'd you there. I was there. But i want to know from your allies is crazy man. We had the whole place. Bump dan it was abi would actually Name time. Let me see era name time where we've actually talked to someone in a press conference. This guy was straight calling me. All my shit on what is going on is good fun. You got to see emotion out of kabaeva now and you know like he used it on the league. Now i'm just gonna smash you actually like this actually have having. The tunnel is a with london. I want you to think that regret. I'm saying regret in the way that most people use the word regret like. Oh i wish. I could have done this differently. But the fact that that fight didn't happen in the way it went down a couple of days later. Is that a regret a big regret for you. That's something that you still think about a lot. Main not really. I don't really think about it. You know you live. You let go you know it happens. I believe things happen for a reason. That wasn't the right. Time was on the right place for. I don't know what four but it wasn't. You know if it was made the walk did it. But you know some unfortunate things happen then not going to do on it you know. There's no there's no reason to you know. I have no control over it. You know as time moves on and you got to move on with it okay. And of course delaying the inevitable here but the big question is you're fighting for the belt next right like you're fighting. The winner of vulcan off skier teigen. That's not a question right. Yeah i mean you know then was pretty clear on what was next for me after my fight you know he did the media and this and that and everyone knows that i'm the cloud..

"dan hooker" Discussed on THE FIGHT with Teddy Atlas

"You see the way. He's he's fatigued. Hook as fallen in there and what is he doing. Who's got the edge here. The guy coming in or the guy staying back to guy stay back not necessarily the guy beat aggressive that we take for granted because the guy stayed back pori had his feet set and he was able to catch him as he came in he was able to time on the way head with his feet. Set with the other guy was groping. The other guy was reaching at a red. Daddy read that body like which and he stood dating. Go at him and he let him he let hook do some of his work form. Walk into shots that he could time him as he walked in. Yeah and you get the sense here. That hooker definitely wants to fight on the ground. because he's so tired dustin getting the better of on the feet now well how those a little subtle move on the inside. Doesn't let go and let it go. I wonder if he's going to do it again. He's gonna suddenly let go. And then let the punches call. He does that. Well you know. Have you net grip and then you kinda let up a little thick and okay. We're going to have a little break here. And then as you let up out of that grip hit head toward a couple. Short shot satcher. This round is poor. Because i mean not just because we'll will witnessing you know obviously as far as strategically and what he's doing but he just looks a little more control themselves doesn't he. Then then hawker for sure. Yeah i mean it looks to me like hocus trying to buy time in trying to stay busy. That was a smart card hookers. Leaning forward doesn't true an uppercut in there. See i always the toilet guy. The hookers grappling off timed them on the way in. He didn't let him just get a free got him now now. He's looking for that. That that choke. I don't know that hooker is thrown a punch in the last two or three. What's keeping on. I guess hookers keeping his chin low enough. We can't quite get that on the need to on. The he's got is back to the cage so dust and really can't get leverage on. Yeah see now. He's got his own not quite but by just staying down there. He gave up the round. Wow wow he-here's he earned it. I was a hell of heared dad round one it. Yeah i mean and we're going to get the see both guys in action on the twenty-third. Wow i forgot how good that fight was also this lessons to be learned at all times one of the lessons for does centers to offer watching this one time to learn going into the rematch with mcgregor as don't do the things that hook it did that became available for you to take advantage of like reaching in. Yeah you know what. I mean like when reached in that was able to happen. You know where poor was able to time him and that's something that mcgregor does so well as he gets should reach in. And you know it's funny. Everyone to look at mcgregor says go get your guy because the results at the end of the day way scores knockouts in striking. But he's a counterpuncher and look at. Why was i was unbelievable that he was able to take those shots. I mean just a chin on these guys. I mean candies. Are ten ounce gloves on his hand. See these four ounce. I wonder sometimes. I wonder if and four out as the selection of the punches and soul point he was in close. What's he do. He selects An uppercut because he was leaning forward. Yeah see see the. There's a shorter guy out jab in the toilet guy and as the left hand because the taller guy is allowed him into his area and to an area he a taller guy. Theoretically shouldn't let you into. He knew he knew he. I mean you see right here you you could usually see who knows. Oh yeah and. I think that's what he was saying. There were five. The fifth round was to win it for me. I think that's for sure but that's to me. That's what he would have meant five in other words. It wasn't a four round fight. It was a five hour fight. And i took the fifth round. Great fight applauds to both first of all respect. Kudos just admiration to both guys. So both guys yeah. Tremendous looking forward to see him. Both guys in action. That was a lot of fun teddy. Thanks for doing this. And thanks for being with us guys. If you want to see some more fight breakdowns. Please send us a message. Is share the links. Let us know who else.

"In abu dhabi. Of course he's the hangman himself. Dan hooker highly anticipated. Fight against michael chandler fight. That just came together apparently a couple of weeks ago. Dan appreciate the time as you're getting set to go out to abu dhabi. Can i ask. When did you find out that you were fighting. Michael chandler because this kind of came together very recently. I've known i've made about a while night about it. I've been training pretty hard for about six. And a half weeks for micro channels so yeah always appreciate about this a while ago. So i'm i'm a more than really at this point. I would imagine you like the idea of finding chandler. There's a lot of buzz surrounding him. He's a fresh face former champion and bell tower when they offered you this. Was it a no brainer for you. Owe one hundred percent the the whole cod. You know the first I pay view of the economy. Greg todd doesn't poor it's a. It's a huge cat. And he's a big name you know they'd put them in as the backup for the title. That shows how much stock they put behind. The guy. And i put my is one of the first guys to put my hand up in salad. Welcome to see saw. Yeah i was excited. That name came through in all excited about the cat and opportunity and to fight on fight island as well. A guy like chandler. Who made a name for himself from bell. Talk for about a decade former champion a couple times there one fifty five. Are you familiar with him before they offer you him or before he comes to see. Are you a guy that watches bell tower and other organizations definitely. I definitely watch as much flights as i can buy more and more say from the scene down at the local sick down he has. Wasn't i definitely knew who he was. And i'd seen highlights of highlights office fights with any hours on when when he came with the ufc. Oh go back in. Just have a quick little button. I hadn't done any real study on on channel until the fight came through. And i wasn't that a way of his career and his accomplishments going back and having a look at what he's done in ballato and seeing the very early on he was fighting at a high level and bella toy twenty something in that organization. So he's been at the top tier for a long time so i definitely understand going back and watching his korea on the excitement around him coming over to the u. of c. Is definitely warranted. Now that you have done that work that that homework so to speak. Are you impressed with them. Like you consider him a top tier. You have see lightweight based on what you've seen. Yeah i consider him. I consider skill set. And he's accomplished and what he's capable of doing to be the at the elite level but yeah we just we just. I know because he hasn't been in the competed against a lot of a lot of friendly faces. So yeah this. I'm excited as you guys out to see how how he is against the guys on the side so you know when he signed with the ufc though some talk of him fighting. Tony ferguson dust. Emporia those senate come to fruition. Then he was the backup for the title in october when he first sign. I said i think it would be apropos for him to fight a dan hooker. Paul felder like you kind of have to earn your spot in the most stack division in the sport and yet it seemed like he was at one point going to bypass that now he ends up with you. Did you feel the same way like when you heard that he was a backup for a title. Fight a title by the way that you've never fought for. Did it rub you the wrong way. Like i knew he was kind of you know the rumors that he was coming to the day. Hit sign with the u. of c. And i wasn't yeah wasn't too concerned about the whole thing. And then they then they put him as the backup for the title. And i was like well that fight now interests me. That's a fight that i would like you know if you'll putting him in as backup auto. I would like to old like to take that spa. I would like to get in there. Beat them and take take that spa and put myself back in Back in contention. Wanted to just go back if i could prior to the chandler. Fight for a minute there. It seemed like you were in the crosshairs of one nathan d as it like he was targeting. You and then. I kinda just fizzled away. What happened nothing happened. No this easies games. They come a lot of respect for the. You know. I myself the fan of your watch. The what's the diaz brothers seen him compete love. How game they are. I would love to get out there and compete against one of them So yeah i you put my hand up full flight. Whatever weight he would choose the fight it just because that that fight on and then the will which he fights intrigues me a lot. He's gonna come these kinda pace in these. He's gonna bring the fight. So that's that's always got me excited but yeah nothing. Nothing came to fruition permit it. No one called. You know one asked if you're interested nothing at all. Na na no nothing nothing would you have done it at one. Seventy one hundred percent maybe as one eighty whatever he wants to fight it just would would just be good cool very cool for me Very surreal to compete against them. Okay so then let me ask you if you beat. Michael chandler on the twenty third. Would you still be interested in revisiting that or do you feel at that point that you would be past. That point would always I'll be open to there. I'll definitely be open to their fight. You know if they if they seriously he came in approach me about that. It would be at any stage of my career to be very difficult for me to ten that. Fight down that fight you know. I made the point. Now where they really want to fight guys you excite you exciting fights or fights get you get you out of bed so to speak. And that is one of those. So we're talking here you're you're still at. Ck city kickboxing in auckland. You're you're on your way in just a few hours to go to abu dhabi and correct me. If i'm wrong because i read this in a couple of places after the fight next weekend you won't be able to return home for a month you'll have to stay abu dhabi.

"dan hooker" Discussed on Five Rounds with Brett Okamoto

"So like i said. We got a lot to discuss with a lot of interesting people on today's program a little later on in the show my friends. We're going to talk to a man that i actually wanted to talk to last year. Prior to the conor mcgregor versus donald cerrone fight. his name. is phil sutcliffe. He's a two time olympic boxer. He's the current head coach and administrator over at the crumlin boxing club. He is conor mcgregor's first ever boxing coach and he coached connor from around age. Ten to seventeen than they parted ways. Kind of course going down. The may have but they recently reconnected prior to the ceremony fight and he was part of his team for that fight and he's a part of his team once again for this fight against us emporia on january twenty third and i think there's some great symbolism involved there with connor kind of going back to his roots evolving maturing changing in front of our eyes to reconnect with the guy who got him into the fight game I think is a really interesting things. So i wanted to talk to fill last year. Didn't get a chance this time around. We did speak to him. Will air a portion of that conversation later in the program will also talk to dan hooker. Who's fighting the komen event of ufc. Two fifty seven january. Twenty third in abu dhabi. He goes up against michael chandler. Huge fight at one fifty five talk to him about that fight. How came together and whole lot more. Of course he's coming off the loss to dustin pedroia. He's interested things to say about that. Fight back in june. My round of the year you may recall from last week round two in particular was my round of the year will also talk to calvin cater and max hallways so calvin cater max hallway. Of course headlining the c. Showed this saturday in abu dhabi. The very first show on. Abc the very first. You have see cars. The very i m e card on. Abc of course. A emma has aired on cbs on nbc on fox but never on abc and to me. This is the biggest the of the mall of course because of the long and rich history of boxing on. Abc's this is really big deal. It's a really big fight. For calvin cater had a great twenty twenty two wins for him against top level competition. If you win this fight he could very well be next for the one forty five pound title and we suspected that title fight will be vulcan off. Ski alexander volcan off ski to be exact defending against bryner. Tak- may be on march twenty seven. We know about the pay per view on march. Sixth headlined by israel destiny. Ever john hobich. I reported couple of weeks ago. March twenty seventh Is looking like the second pay per view that month. So they're gonna go with two in march that could be where steep a mio cheech and francis in ghana to lands and maybe even Now both fights not official. But that's what's been discussed by the way. We found out earlier on wednesday march thirteenth. It's going to be leon edwards Of the third time that they book it was supposed to happen. Originally december nineteenth that january twentieth. Now they're going to go for a third crack at it on march thirteenth. Hopefully it happens. Wanna see that very much. And oh by the way Dana white telling the mac life on wednesday as well that they're in talks with nathan d as for fight at one fifty five. I've heard the same and he could be returning in march as well. So march shaping up to be a big month for the you have c. But january is a big month as well. Abc on saturday. The january twentieth card headlined by neil. Magny michael kiss and then of course the return of conor mcgregor on january twenty third for now though. Let's kick it off with the man. Who will be headlining the saturday's card the former. Ufc featherweight champion. The pride of why. Hawaii the one and only max blessed holloway enjoy. Let's kick things off today with the man who will be headlining. The very first mixed martial arts event ever broadcast on abc. Yes the american broadcast company will be airing mixed martial arts for the very first time in. Its history other. Hasn't been fighting of any kind on this network since june of two thousand. This is a network by the way which i started airing. Boxing matches back in nineteen forty nine so this is a massive massive deal and that man right over there max. Holloway himself will be one half of the headliner. He's going up against calvin catered this saturday afternoon. Great to talk to him once again. Max how are you. i'm good. I'm good i'm excited. I'm excited to be on abc. I'm excited we got. We got fans back the I can't wait to dan dusing so i'm just curious like when you heard that you were going to be a part of the very first. Ufc on abc card. Did that mean anything to you. Were over time. Have you kind of figured out. How big a deal this is. I mean a lot. You know we see post like like this is what twenty one years the first time they have a combat sports on it in like you said they call you just said that is the first time they having anime ever on abc. So it's i mean it's super huge and it's like no you could be flipping through the channel would see fights on so it's it's crazy. It's it's insane. In is a blessing to be a part of something so big in our sport of the great muhammad ali fought on. Abc either live or tape nineteen times. Abc kind of helped make mohammad-ali household name. And so i'm wondering for you getting this opportunity. Getting the shine does it. Maybe add a little pressure shoulders. You know now that there's gonna be tons more people potentially watching you.

"dan hooker" Discussed on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani

"The new year. Michael chandler will make his highly anticipated octagon debut against dan hooker now as reported on the inside a couple of weeks ago when initial reports. I came out this fight. It would not done. It was not even close to being done. In fact dana white even told the schmo that the original plan was to book. Chandler versus charles oliveira for this card but oliveira per what dana white told schmo wasn't going to be able to make the weight since he thought tony ferguson. A ufc two six so the fight has done a k. And i feel like this is a trend with these first few questions. Boy now we get chandler versus hooker to fifty seven. Was this the right. Fight to me Yeah it's a great fight. Yeah i mean. I know there are other options and other stuff on paper. That looked great. But how could anyone objects to michael chandler. Versus dan hooker. Dead hooker may be the most exciting fighter of twenty twenty. I know on our own and may fighting end of the year list. I believe he had one entering the top five. And then i think another entering the top of our top ten whatever. That may be So i i think he's the one that had that and i'm in this isn't new. Dan hooker anyone who's followed as career. The guy is instant excitement He's he's also one of those guys who's like you know he's in the top ten always kinda look finding Trying to find a way to crack the top five so this fight matters a lot in that sense too. But i mean just as far as is an exciting fight for the fans for any of us in the media anyone watching. It's an amazing fight so so so good Hook desserts big name chan. The deserves a top ten guy. So i mean in a way both fighters getting are getting what they want. It's i mean is a little. Is it a little bit of a drop proper channels you know. He was in talks to act as a replacement for the habib engaged. Fight i guess at that sense if you wanna look at it through that lens Is it a little. Bit of drop off from charles lavera. Yeah maybe a hot oliveira's but really you can't do. You can't do much much better than than dan hooker. Who is again topping rank for a while so the other thing to look at his. You know hogarth Herbert's coming up. That loss two four. That's fine but we've got a little bit to prove channels coming up of but there's that that stink of that pit bull loss. I feel like it's still linked. I think a lot of things like that was his last flight. Because he's on a two five win streak. It's guy like hooker. It's just instant credibility and of course the other good reason for bringing this fight for you'll to thirty seven specifically as maybe if magomedov's completely out of the picture that we get our next lightweight title fight from the winners of this fight and of course the portray burger rematch so kudos uc matchmakers. I'm all in on this. One james ak very pro this fight are you in. The same boat is this. Was this the right fight to make. It's a great fight. It's a fun fight but it was the right fight with everything we now. Yes this is right by to make. But i want to back up a little bit and something that we didn't talk about here and that was michael. Chandler had the opportunity to tony ferguson. And if you look at the way ferguson loss last fight you do wonder if there was a missed opportunity for chandler. Because had he taken on short notice and let's say loss he'd have that excuse in his back pocket that he had to wait for the title fight and he could've come in here because all the honest i mean. This is a great vitamin paper. I'm looking forward to it. No regrets in terms of you know this fight being put together. I think it's amazing. This is a tough fight for michael chandler. And he's fighting is much bigger than him dan. Hooker stands at six feet tall at the seventy five point. Five intrigued chandler's only five eight with a sixty nine inch breech. So it's gonna be a tough fight for his outing whereas like i said if he fought ferguson. You'd have the built in excuse already. That was short notice. You could could've taken it also. I can't remember the last time the ufc sign someone like a marquee signing like this where it was so delayed to see his debut. I mean chandler sign. What in the fall and here. We are talking about a fight here in january. So i think all things considered this the best they could put together. You gotta give chandler. I mean with how highly they thought of him. You have to give them a top five. I think is ranked number sex so You know i. I think it's a good test for chandler to see where he's at and i'll go back even further before the pit bull lost remember. He lost a wheel brooks a couple years ago. That was kind of one of those fights where you remember chandler kind of put the sign up like am done. He got hit you hard. I mean there have been some setbacks and chandler's career so i think it's a bit redemption for him as well to show that he is one of the top lightweights. It's not just You know a case of where you know. He's coming over bell torn. he's not as talented. I'm curious to see how he performs under the bright lights especially on this card where let's say something happens with you. Know knock on wood. Nothing happens between the main event but you have a backup there in case something happened. So yeah great matchmaking. Great fight and i think a good test for both guys especially with hooker because what's the theme with ochre and his career lightweight. It's when he gets that step up. He tends to alter lost. Four bosa lost a dozen. Portia i'll be close. Fights will the. Portia fight much closer. I think a good test for both guys first of all. Let me just preface this next question by saying that. I love this fight. I'm with both of you. It's a great fight. And i think it it actually fit into what i was thinking when chandler signed with the was a guy milas hall felder was at the top of my list but that was the kind of caliber opponent that i was looking for but then he got this promotional push james making him the back of fighter and i thought you know. Maybe they do gay g. Maybe they do olivera. But at this point this is a sort of we have to get chandler on this car no matter what type of scenario hookers in. So that's what it shall be. Did the ufc half to put chandler on this card especially with connor fighting dust and like i understand that its covid stuff and if us connor you're screwed anyways but could they have waited a month maybe two to have this debut baby get engaged. Maybe get him olivera or was this sort of a ticking clock we have to get chandler on this card with connor. I think the longer it goes without him fighting the more that signing sort of loses its luster. You know. here's something. I talked to ben asking a few weeks ago and you know..

"Winning needed against A. Bench now including garbrandt talking about Sean o'malley, who's like top five former champion anytime? James starts talking about you is important. Now there people trying to fancy match make that fight, which doesn't make sense, either but the fact that they want that fight is important and then Sugar Sean, just saying all the right things after and then doing what the podcast rounds, and all the major all the major podcasts mavericks after so in terms of the fans I would probably say sugar sean in my mind. Kristin who stock rose the most over this month month and change in Las Vegas. I think I'd give it to Dan. Hooker, even in a loss like I. Don't think that he looked completely terrible. I think a lot of people. Heading into this fight were kind of discrediting him because he was taking on someone like Dustin. Quarry which granted that is a big task for someone like Dan Hooker to take gone, but it's not like he hasn't been beating some good names at lightweight so I think that his stock overall did rise. He looked great at look like you said earlier, it looked like he could have stopped us in area, and I think just engaging I know. He said that he was going to get marked by doesn't work, but even he. He had to admit that. Hey, he deserves a seat at the light weight table. He's definitely gonNA. Be a contender so I think that the next time that we see Dan Hooker it's going to be completely different. I think he's GonNa look like a better fighter over also as far as the stock goes I think it's Dan Hooker I mean he still has the city kickboxing team behind him. I'm pretty sure if he gets another win, he'll burst into title contention again. I'm pretty sure so. Dan Hooker man I feel for him in a loss, but I think it doesn't do too much to to kind of get him out of the top ranks of the lightweight division. Yeah those are all those are all good ones like John Goodwin Gila Burns. Obviously a good one because you know he goes in dominates Woodley comes the number one contender and a loaded division now he's GonNa. Fight for a world title and less than two weeks in a main event against Kamara who's been and I, I look at these things from a different perspective, because I interview fighters all the time and. People reach out and they're like when you know. What are you talking to this guy when you talking to this guy and I think based on his interview, heading into the fight and what we've seen afterwards. I think worthy took a giant step for like because when you interview guy like Coal Kobe, Covington of course like fans want him on every week either to listen to what. What he has to say or just so they could throw shade at him, but over the last couple of weeks. I've had so many people ask me like when Kamo or these. Coming back on and truth be told just interviewed him before I came on this, and it is outstanding, so you'll see that on what the heck, but who's taken one step closer to the beach. Title. That's the real question right now and that person. is going to be. The man with the best mustache immediate Jose. Young's takes a two to one lead, and I can do this for another ten rounds. Cause such a fun match up well, let's head to the final question of regulation, perhaps the final question of the game unless Kristen King can come through here. The UFC is heading to fight island. UFC Two fifty, one going down July eleventh little less than two weeks and right now there's going to be subsequent events in the Fifteenth Eighteenth and the twenty fifth. Every card has. Has a lot of good matchups. There's four title fights and toll on the island. There's a lot of quote. Unquote. Next step matchups lot of solid prospects, lot of the international flavor that we've been missing, but Jose let me start with you. Of course to fifty one has three title fights a huge event. The other headliners, the other rijkaard's a great to a lot of really really good fight, so in your opinion, and you can basis on whatever criteria you choose because there are no wrong answers here. What is the most fascinating fight island matchup? That's set to go down over the next few weeks. fascinating. Like fat, that's tough. 'cause I'm most excited for. It, but I'm super interested in Peter Yonkers Josie Aldo. But I'd say I'd say that one personally for me I know everyone doesn't want that fight but I. think that's why I'm to answer this question. Specifically, that is why I'm so fascinated by this one because people don't want Joe Sales. Have this fight, so I'm interested to see how he. Looks and Our Own Darin Martin is like looking at the rankings and he's. Can someone tell me why Peter is like number to use? Only be Jimmy Rivera in the top ten or something. Something like that, and it's coming over your favorite so I think Peter deserves this fight, but. Given the fact that album owned one and then people are. There's a S-. People are now arguing that Peter Yod doesn't even deserve his ranking spot. I am interested in how they look against each other I'm always interested in watchos album fight. I mean I'm very interested in how it looks at one thirty five. Championship wait so. I get. People don't want that fight and I. Get people hate it and there's I. gave it. Instead of Aldo after his win all power to them, I get why they made this fight, but in terms of to answer the question, what am I most interested in watching? It's John Zelda but the one. I'm most excited for is who's been burns. Chris! What do you think what's that fight that you just got circled on your your file and calendar that you just can't wait to watch. For me, it's going to be page vans and versus a Ribas I think that there are so many different storylines are about to play out with this fight. You have a mandatory bus who is three and in the division? Since she came, she's absolutely perfect. In the in the UFC her biggest win was the Mackenzie dern fight and I don't think a lot of people expected her to go out there and dominate Mackenzie. Dern in the way that she did especially when it came to the standing, a lot of people were surprised by that, and she's been calling for this by She's been wanting page bands and for the longest. Longest time out onto that that she has like one of the most infectious personalities that I think I've ever see in a UFC fighter. She is literally one of the happiest people so I'm sure she's happy to have this moment against page vans, and now we can go over to her. Which is completely different story? You guys remember page vans. Aunt was like all the rage back in twenty, fifteen, twenty, sixteen. She was headlining cards with with another blonde hair blue by killer and sage north cut those two are like touted as the future of the UFC a now lecomte far we've come from. It's completely different. Patriots has been. been talking about her pay, she's been talking about testing free agency finding out her worth. We haven't seen her in a little over a year. Now I think the last performance was Rachel Ostrich by back in UFC Berkley and so we don't know what page bands aunt. We're GONNA. Get is the last night on her UFC contract. I'm sure she's open to exploring different options. Including from Ballatore, which would make the absolute most sense considering that her husband is already there so I mean there are a lot of different ways that this fight could play out, and this is almost like a changing of the guard. You have this new standout. Standout in Amanda Rivas on the old girl that we used to pay so much attention to and who used to be the biggest and brightest star. The UFC was planning out there. It's completely different, so if a matter of gets a win over page, man's aunt..

"dan hooker" Discussed on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani

"In the truck, Casey Liden to set the table for this interim title bout. So. Let's go to the truck and play that clip right now if we could. Thank you so much for having me. On between four sign that forms I'm excited to be back. I will admit that I'm kind of nervous. I'm taking up the reigning champion right now. Games land. I thought I was going to have easy work with Jose but I'm ready to fight here. Man, those are fighting words right there I swear to God Kristen King joins us. She does great work over my may news. She was recent a recent guests on the side. Live chat although I'm not sure if another invaluable becoming her way that, but and welcome back I. Appreciate Your Flexibility. How are you? I'm good. Thanks for having me back. I love between lanes is one of my favorite shows I'm happy to going up against a good brand in Jose, but I met every single one of those words, so I am hoping to give your second straight loss on in between the links today. I love it in her opponent. The former between the links champion. He had a great run, but he's back this week to potentially earn some redemption against James Lynch and add an interim title to his collection, the man with the best mustache and all of them may media the host, the aside live chat from emanate fighting dot com Mr Jose Young. So how are you, sir? Well? I would respond to whatever Christian said, but I couldn't hear anything on unit on my end played I couldn't hear it either, but I remembered it I watched the clip again last night, so she had some things to say. She talked a little trash in. Between the links Zala Basel Kristen. Let us begin with you. You won the toss. We saw this last week a little bit after the Josh Emmett versus Shane Burgos fight as good as that fight was i. don't think anyone would saying that. It was like the. Do we officially have a new clubhouse leader so to speak, if so, why and if not? Why not? Yeah I. Don't think that we do I think it's very close. It's like definitely second place, but that's why I said. This is fight of the year contender. Don't think that it's fight of the year. Just yet mean. The year isn't over number. One and number. Two had to be reminded that you on. UELI actually took place this year, and that was an insane to watch, too, because that was one of the. The most like unexpected performances from both women I was not expecting both of them to just go out there and pretty much hammer each other like that, but with the Dan Hooker fight and the dozen bite I kind of figured that, either go twenty five minutes and be a full blown war like it was or somebody was going to sleep, I'm glad that we got a war between the two, but. Going to jump out of the ship and say that you WANNA versus Waleed has been dethroned us by the year. I think that still pretty clear. Frontrunner with Korea versus hooker. Being second I think a lot will come into. This is recently buyers who were saying the same exact thing about the Emmett versus Burgos fight I think a lot of people had their pumping, and they were just so excited to see if I go down like that this is pretty much the same thing with Hooker vs warriors so fight of the year contender. Yes, fight of the year definitively not yet. Jose. Recently bias is a huge thing and MMA. What have you done for me lately? And this fight delivered in a big way, but did you deliver big enough to to thrown the front runner for fight of the year and twenty twenty between John, Wiley and you on NJ check. Not. And it's it's. It's sitting comfortably at number two, which is nothing to be ashamed of considering I think Jane, widely versus you wanted, and Jj is the best title fight I've ever seen not named. Robbie lawler versus word. McDonald like that is going to go down as one of the great fights of all time, not just this year, so everyone is for the rest of the year for all of these vices going to be battling for number two. We get absolute insanity soon I don't th-. The coker verse. Hooking was amazing. It's everything that lived up to be but I think there's a few factors that play into. Jane Wiley versus you want to of take the place to take playbook out of my former coworker Dave meltzer. It's like the crowd was there. It was for a title Komen Events. Slot underneath a highly. They stole the show like Israel had to sign in versus you. All Romero supposed to be this big epic war, and obviously wasn't in. Everyone was talking about James Lebron. James so anytime a coma van a straw women's title fight. is now as outshining the main event of a Middleweight Championship undefeated, Mentally Champs of the world. In in March. I think I. Think it's January Leon. JJ IS GONNA go down as one of the greatest fights ever, and it's not gonNA. Get thrown anytime soon. I will say there's a kristen knows is already but personally speaking I watched both fights yesterday back to back in preparation for the show, and they're both fantastic. Both really incredible fights, both have arguments for being the best of the year and I don't know if it's recency, bias or whatnot, but right now on this day I think poor versus hooker is the front runner and to sort of piggyback off of what James said yesterday. which have you got to hear? I didn't think there was any point in the Jong Lee versus Yana, J. Check fight where I felt like any woman was in jeopardy of being finished in that fight exact his fight in particular I, think there are points where both guys thought were on the verge being finished, and both were able to come back, and we got a great fight, but tomorrow that could change I could watch them both again and be like you know what. Maybe, it is your way. Lever, Shana but to kind of transition here. One thing we do in the sport a lot because of how it shaped up as we immediately talk about the what's next like we don't allow these guys to savor the flavor for too long, and for me, I have to answer all these questions as as part of my job, but one thing that. That kind of stuck on social media over the weekend was area from ESPN tweets the poor. You should fight Tony Ferguson next which I agree is the fight before a responded with Damn, let me let me rest. SPRY and I'll say first off. Clearly aerial didn't mean let's line. These guys up for a fight in. August clearly deserves and time off after that Ferguson deserves time. Time off after the fight with just engage you, but Jose. We've talked about this on the preview show and on the PO show now that we've had a couple of days to let it breathe a little bit. Is Ferguson the next fight for Dustin down the road whenever he's finished recuperating, or is there something else perhaps a fight with Conor McGregor Nate Diaz or do we? We wait to see how Habib versus plays up before we can even have this conversation because as we discussed last week. If Gates Wins Poor, already get a win over him and we gotTA story already lined up for us over talking about what makes most logical sense, which is of course, not allowed in mixed martial arts. It's Tony Ferguson just based off of the rankings. Tony Ferguson has like Lucas I remember who posted, but it was like people were putting. All of these are resumes next to each other like dust employers, all of these former champions, and then Tony Ferguson all these champions and former champions, being in neither of them have ever been the undisputed lightweight champion of the world. I think it just makes sense the stories they're the rankings there. Make sense, but again you can throw an anomaly as Conor McGregor ideas so I don't really categorize. The quote makes sense fight, and they can fight whatever they want. Because fans will watch them fight wherever they want. Fight the Nadir's. It's supposed to at UC to thirty. Thirty lightweight. If they want to run that back great, they want to run back to convert fight of one seventy great, but I'm not counting those because I'm trying to make sense so Tony Ferguson makes the most sense, but if they want to turn around and say hey, we want to give you a Paul. Feld Charlie or Charles Oliveira like cool, but if you want to wait for Steve Justin Gates, you beats bieb I would imagine they want to give the media rematch. A because I know how the UFC.
