"So you do have a real something interesting about to happen here. Right. I don't watch any movie. If somebody's spoils it for me and tells me the ending and the same goes with big fights. It's very hard for me to get excited. Unless I can have a level belief that I do not know the outcome of this based on any tangible, you want to bring to me. I will listen, but you better bring me one or you just gonna have a hard time getting me interested. It would seem that for D as petty. Even if we all want to say Pettus is sharper, right now Pettus is better Pettus has been busier you still are left with the fact that pedestals people in Nate Diaz does not have a history of being stuck. You still have something very special to watch. When you look at the other side of the coin, which is Tony, Ferguson versus Donald Sarony good for Donald Cerrone, because it's the next best thing he was told he was going to get the Connor fight. We're looking forward to the Connor fight now. He's got Tony. I he's got the champion of the world who never lost his title, don't ever forget that. Tony Ferguson had it twelve pound gold gold belt around his waist, and never lost. But no longer has that belt. So when I tell you that this is about as big as it can get, I think that you do have to agree with me on that, and it would be nearly impossible to hold that contest. And not put the winner of that either infrared title or in with Connor, it would be nearly be very hard to imagine how do you do that? And where do you go? Then you could get away with, with. Donald because he's going to say, yes, either what he does look into fight somebody on a Saturday night. Tony furred probably not as easy. So I think that there is some resentment where for the whale all of that played out. I don't know that anybody was at fault, but not always somebody has to be at fault for a guy to have a little bit of a ship on his shoulder. And I would think that Tony has it. I would think he hasn't said that. I'm just looking at the situation. I think a lot is going to get resolved based on the winner of that fight..

"If you want to get the one if you want to build something bigger, there's no doubt in my mind that it's max Holloway. It's a great option out there max Holloway, really get you that many more paper views Connors the draw regardless. I think it would mean the max hallway for us like the hard core 's we recognize that as a bigger fight. Selling champion versus former champion still. I don't think Donald Cerrone has the credentials that that max Holloway does just plain simple. I it. It's not it's not a quick. So regardless of the hardcore, which I agree with that that they would wanna see max in their Donald Cerrone. He just doesn't have the juice that max Holloway. Does this though if the fight goes to the canvas I think Conor has a has a would be a little bit more trouble against Sony, then he would be against MAC. So while I don't think the max is is is dynamite on his feet and surly. A grappler thinks aronie would take a whole level certainly have seen Connor. You know, that's one of those things, but he needs to he needs to take on somebody like that who can who you know, when he did when he went to the ground with with with Nate, the as it didn't go as way, certainly when he actually I thought he did pretty well against Habib around for parts of that fight. But in the end all will remember him getting his neck cranked? So, you know, him to the ground against a real top grappling guy like Surani and not just not just doing persevering, and maybe even getting advantage. Maybe even bidding them down there. That'd be a feather in his cap true or false kinda mcgregor's next fight is against someone not named altering or max hallway. I'm gonna say true. I don't think either of them get well, we'll get to don't know some some. But the field taking the field dark horse contender. I just don't see. I don't see the either of those options as being the one that he jumps right back into how Jeff yes funny. I was I'm thinking about this. Because when we were doing. Digital side. We did a thing of, you know, bold predictions for two thousand nineteen I got a lot of heat for for mine, which was kind of he doesn't win a fight in the octagon in two thousand nineteen. And the reason I was reason I said that it was because I thought that that kinda would accept nothing other than the rematch with Habib at the time. It seemed like that was what he was. He was not going to go with anybody else. And I just thought if he went back in there with Habib he wouldn't he wouldn't win that fight or he was going to do another one of was circus things and fight somebody outside of MA. But now, I I kind of think that the Surani thing might might be the way to go. I mean I for him. I think he's I think that he's interested in it. I know that that Twitter is just Twitter and words are just words, but. I could see him. I could see him going there. So I'm going to. I'm not going to the field. I'm going to say it's going to be one of those two guys. And I think it's gonna Sironi. Yeah. I think Surani's atop the leaderboard right now. And I wouldn't be surprised if it happens in the summertime right now max may have gone a little too personal there. We'll see what happens. But I appreciate eventually. They're pass across. Point about those rematches. He's not been keen in the past on rematch. Ing someone who he has already defeated while we right? What he why would he want to go in there? Why would he ever wanted to go in with? Although again after bidding thirty seconds because that's the indelible remembrance that we will always have of that one punch knockout. How could he do better than that guys? We're at a time this has been fun. It's been a pleasure. Yes. Flown by welcome back near Greg. Thank you back to be seen wags brought the heat today. Yeah. Fired up fired. You had a little Jamison. Yes. I like this wish this is good..

"And once you begin to understand that. And then you understand the mission failure you begin to be like within wire. We why are we doing this? We're doing it because it benefits you have see in the event of some kind of calamity think that your system fixes though. I think it just absolutely does for a system that the athletes create if there's a disaster there, who's to blame the fighters association ownership commission responsibility. It would spread blame it wouldn't concentrate. It right now, the you have C would bear the brunt of it because they're the ones in control you spread that blame a little bit. And then there could be some reconciliation about it who you blame. It's the same problem though. People are are using. Okay. Then you can agree that we can use this. But we can't use. I'm talking about Lee calamity right in the event of calamity, you'll say God forbid, a death or serious injury happens inside the octagon, but never happens. But let's say that it does if it does now that you have see can say, well, they're one of the ones that control. So therefore, this you saw to deal of insulin. And we did everything we could right. But the I. We are wrapping up. But the idea here is if you spread the blame between a union if such one existed and ownership and commissions, then you could say, well, how do we redefine the system while the kinds of changes could we make, but it wouldn't be on UFC to go super gung ho to protect themselves. And by the okay would remove the cloud from the circus to a certain degree. But it would still be a circus. Moore news at eleven. Yeah. So we we have an interesting conversation. We should have or sometime people bring up the Vitor one. But in the end when you really begin to look at the aggregate product, and you ask yourself is it safer safer? There's no evidence that safer at all zero. So what does there's in any testing being done the subject right out who on on these things like how how fighters performances with or without then, you know, tiling that up over a long period of time. And then seeing any more knockouts, it's a different question. How many knockouts were there? Relative to the amount of fighting time relative to the amount of fighters different ways to measure what extent was there injury before what is their injury. Now, the number has gone up. If anything. All right. We gotta go. We gotta go long discussion. I appreciate the question. You're all you're all wrong. But it's okay. No, I'm teasing. It's discussion to have. And we'll have at some point. We have to go. Appreciate you guys doing this. This is the last one for January. We'll be back again in February. So join us then on at the Super Bowl. Yeah. Joy the Super Bowl. I'm not going to be there. Enjoy the Super Bowl. Enjoy whatever you're going to do. Don't drink and drive. We'll see you guys in February until that hands up chin. Download fly.

"A career, and these narrow windows, and you're importing Olympic testing. Why do you have two and a four year ban? It's to keep you out of rotational world and Olympic systems your importing that over to professional sports. It doesn't fit it is incredibly damaging. It's not good for sport. It's not good for commerce. It's not good for the athletes. Let's find a way to craft a mutual policy and be done with it. And that is the end of it that is what I believe, and the fact that it works so well in the NFL and the NBA and the NHL and to a degree in LB is proof that that's a much better system. Passionate words of passion. Imagine we have it's it is crazy to me. We have price fighting where we like these guys have narrow windows and were banning guys two to four. Years. Like, why would you import in Olympic system into a prize fighting commercial professional sport is utterly nonsensical. But prize fighting the danger of being knocked out by a guy who's on PD's is worse than another sports. Do you believe that you saw has made a difference in show? Okay. Full-on condo. It's the same. As it was during the Matt Hughes Carlos new narrow probably a little bit less right now for less when you look at the product. Does it look any say to you are there is there any proof that you can show me that there are fewer brain concussions that there are fewer injuries that this is a safer sport than it used to be if anything if anything it is more dangerous than ever. So to me when I'm balancing risk. You wanna balance a number of elements, including commission oversight other medical screenings health testing and other kinds of things, but you cannot get rid of drugs. You're going to have to find a way to live with it. If you're talking about balancing risk. It turns out that going zealot. On anti-doping to me. There is no evidence in a safer. You can for example. It's it's hard to make the case as a whole because who knows if actually you sought us is catching everyone. We don't know the percentage of people that are that are on it competing, for example. You can just take a specific case like the b- Belfort case, you don't see him spinning we'll kick somebody into space like he did to Luke Rockwell, right? Like we clearly saw like a change in physique and performance. Right. And what's your question? What you're saying? Is it safer will wasn't safe from twenty thirteen that? And so work to take what you say. Would you say is more dangerous fighter five six seven years ago? Then then he is now I would say that about any fighter. Okay. What? Right. Just because you're taking taking into consideration. Are you asking people respond more favorably to drug use than others? Yes. It's clear that it'll make you a more dangerous fighter for the most for the most at all. Is there needs to be more studies on it? But you you can take certain cases, for example, like the one I just mentioned and make a case like short like this more dangerous fighter on PD's, and or certain substance. Then then without I think that's why they banned TRT though. But anyway, your plan is then essentially to just everyone agrees to what you can use. No, I. Penalization system that somewhat relaxed you could agree to but the kinds of section. Here's the question. How did you feel about it with the PD situation without you saw any like are you okay? With for example, say like Orgainzation like boats were where they do commission testing. Yes. I think that's a far superior model. Yes. Is that ideal ideal ideal because even then that the athletes having say, okay? And by the way, the athletes come up with a policy that's pretty strict, but not as strict as you saw and on some level. I would just live with it. It's like if they had some level, we have done this thing where it's like, well, there's the Reebok deal, and that's the UFC really hammering thing. You saw was introduced as a way for the to benefit themselves for them to mitigate risk in the event of bad PR. It is the exact it is the brother of the Reebok deal, and everyone has convinced themselves that some kind of way to rid the sport of drugs, and it's not and never can be. And it never will be. It is a mechanism of corporate control..

"Barely sport cycling. Football tennis, central taking PD's. Can you explain to the uninitiated way? This is a case. And why it's not that misery this question when I put it in her. Can you explain to the uninitiated? Why this is the case why it's not common knowledge. Well, here's what happened. I I K so. How do I want to present? I read into a buddy of mine and two of his friends who are they're not they're my friends as well. But they're not I'm not as tach to them. Both of them are doctors in other surgeons one is a neurosurgeon one heart surgeon. Yeah, I know two idiots, right? And they're married. You guys must be really poor. Anyway, they live here in New York, and they're wonderful people, but we got into a debate. And they were saying that like we were talking about elite athletes whose name I mentioned mention because people will lose their mind. But you know, who they are there's elite athletes just somehow never get injured or have these careers late into their life. Bruce in great numbers. It is my belief that uniform all of them are on something whether it is designer steroids or something else, and they just couldn't comprehend this. They were like, no, no, no, no. It wouldn't ever be this way. And I I was like aren't all went to medical school. Right. And they were trying to make arguments that were just like incredibly knife. But do you into this? Do you rent to people? Who believe that steroid? Use in sports is the exception. Not the rule. Yes, right constantly. So when someone pops. Like, it's like a year. So your the bad apple in the bunch. Right. Why is that perception so common? When you said is probably near ubiquitous when we are seeing combat athletes succeed in their late thirties pushing forty at levels that were never physically forget forget combat athletes. How about any athlete if you play in the NBA and you can play well into your thirties travelling at six foot? I dunno whatever nine whatever you are starting to zero in on the guy you're talking about. There'd be a lot of them in that case. I know or pick your sport, and whatever you want hockey, whatever like these guys are playing it again nutrition's getting better. Okay. Exercise is getting better. That's true. But the games are getting if anything more physical more violent. So how is it possible that you can have these long streaks of productivity at record levels? When your body is supposed to be breaking it is because you are getting help. And it's not I'm not even mad at him for it. It's professional sports. Do what you're supposed to do? What? I find incredible. Is this idea if you like no, no there's like two percent of people using. No, there's at a minimum twenty percent if not much much higher by the close to around forty or fifty based on some of our estimates and probably more than that. What is your perfect quarrel because we this? This question isn't about people that don't believe it's really about you. What is actually your perfect? Where is no perfect world that everybody uses but has to disclose and take. No, it's not what I believe. I believe that basically American sports gets it. Right. So where the two different models. One is the. Olympic model, which is this police state. I think in which is intimately tied to the war on drugs, right, which carries all number of harms. It's a ineffective be Dezelic tree that comes with anti-doping carries reputational arm for those who get caught up in it we've seen that. And so it's incredibly wasteful in terms of resources that simply doesn't work and there are invasions of privacy. You can go on and on about all the harms associated. So I it's it's it's clearly not working, and it's clearly not going to work. It's incapable of working. So then you have to come to a better conclusion, which is that we cannot eliminate these drugs. We have to find a way to live with it. I think that the American professional sports, which don't do with the Olympic side does is the best way ownership and athletes get together and mutually craft the policy that everybody can live with. And you just go about your day after that..

"Like, you know, the head gets cut off by the teen. This is not the world we live. Sometimes you gotta saw right through. You just got call it a day, man. So, and I think everybody I think everyone that's like spoken about this pretty much saying the same thing. Like, it wasn't the best out there. But by no means a bad stoppage. We saw what we saw TJ dillashaw was clearly hurt Henry's who was attacking him perfectly. If I went on for several second lane -able, right? Like from his position when referee like, well, look, here's rock stopped the fight. I mean, it's you don't even have to go beyond. He his very basic to say what happened. It doesn't. The herb dean where he let the guy take a beating for like the last thirty seconds and the like was six months ago and European. Yeah. It was it was CB dollar. Yes. And I mean. Do you know her Dana? We know her what the hell is going on. There are certain times where referee or like, I want to know what the hell they were thinking. But this is not one of those. This is the worst referee. Kevin MacDonald has the he's the best referee in the business. Yeah. I just thought it was very in line with innovating broadcast for both boxing MMA. Is it time to be able to interview judges after the fact or referees on the stoppage? I wanna hear why time referees in boxing. We never get referee interviews in MMA. If you like we see this boxing one after another Regis scorecards lotta times by the same people. What if you just interviewed them on the broadcast that was part of it having to stand up and put your face out there? I feel like that would put enough pressure on you to have to stay in line. I'm not a member of the. I don't know if they're working on this. But one thing that might consider me or consider it would help me consider joining is if they were able to negotiate a way where one member of the media gets to speak to a commission rep about these judges scorecards and a bare minimum like somewhat has to answer for this. I don't know who that is the judges don't wanna do it. But when you dogs on the commission needs to do we don't wanna clown them. But you do want an explanation. Okay. This is the way he scored it. Then why I'm talking about a good faith questioning not a bad faith attack. And that needs to be that that that is sorely sport. All right last one.

"What was the question again? My what do you make the stoppage? I thought the stoppage overall was quick. Yes. I don't think it was quick enough for me to you know, sent out tweets, and look he was getting battered the one where his head snap back on that sort of half. Uppercut that's enough for referee to be put in position to make decision. I think when you add in that he's never fought at this way class that he was vicious and now we find afterwards that he has PIN photo essay thing and and seeing that was like. I think that factors into I was fine in the end with a stoppage. I will call slightly early. But there's no so split second. You know, you see something with these things are happening. A lot of times when somebody gets rocked a fight you'll see the referee leap as if they're going to stop it. But those those hesitate one second just to see because they're they're they're having that that conflict with themselves like to stop it or let it go. And you see guys go out take the extra damage or recover. It's like there's never going to be a perfect situation. It's perfect. It's perfectly possible that dillashaw might have recovered. He was saying that he was already going for the single egg zone on this. What I saw rings as a cage side is a guy. What you're saying? He was he was rocked. He was going backwards. It looked like he was going out. So it's hard to fault them. You can't fault them. But I understand though in a fight like that for a guy killed himself. You know, and all that get down to that weight. And I supervise everyone you understand it. What you want it to be more definitive? I think that. It's a really hard thing to to to figure out, but it doesn't help when dillashaw is going up there saying that it was stolen from him. And all that stuff. But I just don't envy the referees in those. I just don't think you can win two. I'm not one of these guys who has any hesitancy about blasting nephews. But I just don't think this is that case did I think it was a great stoppage. No, I didn't think it was a great one. It wasn't super clean. But number one like it's just with people wanna get on me for being like, maybe we should find a way to live with drugs that are never going to go away. And those people are like, oh, you should beat up guys until they're perfectly unconscious and the brands I've been rattled like, I'm the savage one. Okay. I'm sure that's true. Not at all. So that's one part about it is is that the other part is you look, Kevin McDonald? The guy's been wrestling for almost fifteen years now in these men events, lots a little bit less, so okay, but Google any referee. Herb dean, John McCarthy Leon Roberts Marcotte all these guys and you'll find they made some bad stoppages because it's impossible not to make about stoppage Google, Kevin. Donald you can't find one right? And you cannot find was the first time he's ever come under scrutiny for one. And it's not because he's not been resident the UFC level. He has been not the mandate level. Okay. But then you're like dude shouldn't some of these guys who by the way, if you're doing well on all the pre limb, and then main card fights, shouldn't you get a main event slot once in a while, and it was a little early. It was a little early. I'm not gonna sit here and go hardcore, but it's like guys wrestle on instinct, and he doesn't know the difference between nine and all the things you brought up. It's like guys who rock go for single on the they think they're going for a single, but it's on the referee. Yeah. Is anger is more not in a hatred of of TJ conspiracy theory, but more in their ESPN plus debut main event, I don't want this to end in Kane. Guess one in the kind of did actually half the time thirty two versus one hundred and four seconds. That's the point. I never considered. Yeah. Yeah. But but the point they did so much other than I again, I thought the controversy, and it was probably pretty good for it. So probably everyone. Everybody wants cleanliness in terms of the Finnish..

Surprisingly, he he's very cultured in Russian literature actually asked him that exact question feature road. He said he had cried before say why I don't remember him saying why? But he said he I asked him that because I was like, do you ever cry? You know, and he's like, I cry. They these guys. Grad once. You have to really ask him weird question half. Because if you come down the middle with the common he just off ball. He just watches them. All go Pat business wing on any of them. You know, really get out there on them a little bit. I don't know if you guys heard about this a weed commercial during proposal would have tanked the stock market and brought forth. The did you guys hear about this on CBS CBS showing the understanding I did not why would you I'm teasing? So CBS airy with a thing CBS's airing this year's Super Bowl and a company a company known as acreage, which does in this particular case they were trying to get an ad put on television for medical marijuana. It's backed by former speaker of the house and a Republican John bainer and CBS balked at it and people like that was the wrong message. Remember, they're not talking about sort of commercial. We could just go buy rather medicinal, right, which sort of which by the way, such a Trojan horse nonsense portion of the argument, the argument is it's it's my. Body off like, that's that's the real argument. But okay, you got to convince the olds that there's a reason to do it. Anyway, people were surprised by this not me watch sixty minutes anytime recently like in the last five years as the ES show. How is it? I'm the only one that knows what's happening in the like any question. I can ask you guys other than is it raining outside. No one does coupling me with his answer. I have watched the okay, so shuttling forgiving to have you seen any movies? No. Have you read any books? No. I heard about it. Pro wrestling journalist hours per week. You have to do is like jokes to these uncultured goons. Have you not watched sixty minutes? Eddie time in the last five years. Of course. I have okay. Did you not notice how many a ads targeted to the elderly, but more importantly, how many forms suitable ads they took him? So just beat us all that stuff. So again CBS is drenched in money from pharmaceutical companies, but they're not they so they're scuttled the ad it just kind of hilarious that they're going to have, you know, beer commercials through the Oiseaux on this one. So just remember that your Super Bowl commercials are brought to you by the pharmaceutical industry and big alcohol who don't want you anywhere near medical marijuana. I've also that was kind of funny. And apparently, I'm the one who reads the news, I didn't realize this, and it doesn't have TV. He has the internet. That's true. Good enough. All right. It was more moved. If more. Is it morally justified the dinner white would have morally as the word hair would have rather TJ dillashaw go fully unconscious rather than being saved via early stoppage. The more aware I become a CD the harder becomes the support guys going out on their shield. Am I getting soft Brian Campbell? You have not been here to discuss the full depth of the main event from UFC Brooklyn. Did you like crazy for posting that funny conspiracy theory, but this kind of plays into that doesn't know it doesn't can you answer the question in a forthright way?.

We've got you. And everything we just need the coverage in you know, that gets into like weird. Territories. I wanna do that one time for promotion that I know is going to tank because I'll take the money then. Right. A terrible story. Just watch him. Go. That's always the risk. I would run as I would just piss them off in the air. So that's where I ended up. Everyone is ends up. Madam e I think, yeah. Those are always the big ones that there's a lot of promotions early. We'll fly you out. And it sounds so innocuous because they offer it. So readily like we'll just we'll always like really word. So no never done that. That's probably about it. Usually the money's not big enough. No one's offering. You know, right. Yeah. Here's fifty grand to do X. Really? It's more. They're just offering you trip out to where they're a lot of times the money is insignificant. It's just they they want you at their event. So yeah, I do wonder like what celebrities might have been offered though journals. We do sell our so for for food. How many times has there been, hey, there's a media gathering to interview this fighter? Right. And how many times do we check the fine print? Go was food. Involve many times you make that decision. Yes. Based on the restaurant that a buddy of mine, I have a buddy of mine, he he doesn't cover boxing anymore. You might remember him to remember gal them to guess. No. You don't remember him? I guarantee you met him because we all did. You cover Peterson versus con I didn't cover there. No, no. No. I can't remember pretty sure you might conned got screwed. There was a man in. Anyway, he had a ruler. He'd never accepted anything more than five dollars from any promoter. In other words. He might eat your meal that you offered but probably not even if you offered like yours in the dumb, drives all the stuff on it. You give them all back. His rule was no more than five dollars from any promoter ever. It's a pretty hard core rule. I'm like, dude, you could eat the mashed potatoes. I don't think you're cool. If you wanna do that. But he was hardcore about it now. So I've seen that too. Anyway. All right. That's about it. Right. Yeah. All the TV opportunities. I've ever had been pretty much above board.

"But I there's no boxes not really known for innovation side of attempts at ref Cam. Which doesn't work we like Refco. Now, you don't like ref Cam. I know gives me seizures. What else does it? Give me. I love I like Refco different perspective on the foot. No. It's also good to to when you wanna question like judges. I mean, like a referee's call because you're seeing you know, their point of view or more or less. So, you know, you get good insight because we we get the benefit cameras like the body Cam footage now on all innovations work when he is being the NBA contract, and they put that camera at below the rim in the floor. So you can look up to became the ball Cam. And I'm not talking about the. The basketball. Yeah. Or how about you? Of course, you would go there. Did you guys? Remember when NHL on FOX had the puck that glowed. I was. I was gonna load across the screen people. Apparently hated that out. But you don't need a major innovation. Okay. You don't need like to really update your broadcast. You don't need some kind of earth, shattering technology. Reimagined a way to present it and three D is washed no-one cares about that. We're gonna watch fights and three d deal gives me a headache. Yeah. Nobody cares glasses and stupid people shooting eight K, but TV's no one has an AK TV TV. So cares. But to me, I think if they really reimagined how we get cameras inside the octagon how we were able to lower inside and maneuver of remember I've talked about it on the Monday morning analyst. Most of the action is outside the two black lines rotating around the fence line. So then something needs to be lowered. And then could rotate, but he would have to have something that could really move fast and the drone a drone do drone. Cam would be sick that kind of camera in the corner posts that they do those. I don't find those that. Eliminating. I don't find those that help move can move up and down the just north of Muslim are pretty fixed. So you me when I could go like that can slide up and down the lens can change. It'd be interesting. Yeah. I don't know. I dunno. Or also think put some kind of chip in the glove to get some kind of information. I don't know how helpful that would be. But I'd be curious to know what we could get from it. That'd be kinda mistake, by the way. You guys are watched anything that comes out of CAS consumer electronic show. Why would it? Why would anybody ever say guest question? I ask on this show. Okay. Because Sumi electrons shows the biggest ratio show in the world. Right everyone except apple goes there. One of the major innovations this year edition, two, laptops, and technology was fitness technology couple years ago. It was wearables, this one was workout stuff. And especially apparently in fights stuff that was told that was one of the bigger ones. So they had boxing gloves. Emma, may gloves and heavy bags that could give you all kinds of data about your activity. The harden. Of the punch all kinds of stuff and they had one with the bag moved. And then came at you. And see any of that. Would I've been to see us before have you love the school is very cool. I will say that the has kind of started do some stuff. I wanted to see, you know, just having Trevor Wittman or somebody like that kind of explain I always, Doug. That's why I was wanted to hear microphones on corners. They've they've dabbled with that bypass you can actually click something. Yeah. Exactly. You can actually listen on the corner that stuff I like I love hearing out corners interact with their fighters. What's affective? What's not how you know? What? I mean. It's like hearing a coach, you know, like coaching and football. I it'd be like hearing them communicate with a quarterback or something like that. It's to me I love that you know, that that interplay between the corner. So I love stuff like that. If they could enhance any of that. I guess I would thought for an ounce Cam. When you end up seeing the reaction from like anikin Rogan of knock then India that's always face is just blank or Bruce buffer, you know, because those guys getting TJ's. Aw, kind of cool to get through. There you go. You have your welcome. Our next. Boys..

"I do think that the new belt that they have the the sides are better like the rubies being put in for title defences. How about the champion doesn't have to wear. We rebound care and he can wear any trunks wants with dynamic fasteners ads on the back. And you can I'm not sure that's an improvement. I think that the the thing about the old design the bells you'd see them up on a like on on the podium when they're going to do they're they're talks or whatever. And there was some kind of reverence behind just seeing them like back in the day. At least when this is when we're joy saint-peres just couldn't get it away from you. And those belts really meant something. So they kind of kept that feeling of me all the way through it. Even though there was all these interim, belts and everything floating around. They still had some kind of like how there was some kind of difficulty attach Societa to looking at them where you're like. Wow. Man to have that meant something. Yeah. I feel like that's why that belt is so classic looking. I feel like the old UFC Bill. Look kind of cool because it was kind of flat. And just kinda like like large this one with the main one is is like. It doesn't feel like as big I took a picture of Henry's the who to put up on. My did look. Nice and new. Yeah. It didn't look like, I don't know. I gets nice when you just see like giant giant bell? Here's my thing about it. It's like the new belt looks like a robot designed it like imagine. If you took the they're old UC Bill like this. We want something like this and the robot algorithm kind of jacked it up and then came out with something that was sort of right? But not really sort of what it feels like. I don't know. How coke? Yeah. It's like, it's it's it's it's crystal Pepsi Jones taste the same. But it doesn't know what you're talking about. Again, crystal Pepsi now him he's crystal Pepsi had it I saw video somebody drink once. I got ten year old crystal threw up, they they were reselling it. Yeah. Bacchanals? Oh, yeah. Zuma's back. I've never had Zima. That's that's a lot. Any alcoholic beverage of Halley had a dozen times. I'll probably had tell me right now. All right next. Okay. Brian you talk about the overabundance exhaustion caused by UFC's packed schedule. If you weren't paid to cover it, would you still be watching merely all or as I have now just wait for clips and highlights after the fact beyond sleaze beyond honestly, no not much at all. I'm combat sports fan. I love 'em, boxing and pro wrestling, I it's very hard to fill all three and my week as well. But to the point of that question. No, the quality is not enough across the board where I have to see every single card top to bottom. There's some cards. I don't even have to see the main event. Yeah. I would watch one tenth what I was gonna say your Saturday nights at some point you want again, you would love to have some Saturday nights. Or you're not watching all the time. In sounds like a good problem for you know, a lot of people want to have that problem. But I would not be watching. I'd probably may be half. If that watch me, you know, you I'd watch the events, but a lot of the. You know, the Beltre's and fight nights. And I'm sure a lot of those go by the wayside. I've definitely watch all the paper views and probably most if not all like, I guess back then the US you on FOX. Now, you see on ESPN, but the smaller fight nights. I would probably would wouldn't catch them live just post the next day or something like that like on Sunday, I'll do that. And then there's also you got to keep in mind. There's also the we're the weird fight paths shows that are like weird hours because they're taking place like, you know, across the across the world, so those I would never catch left. But I would I would catch him post. Yeah. I would skip a tongue. I mean, it's like people like oh my God not a real fan. Great not a real fan. Then don't care. You know, you. Your tolerance for bad fighting doesn't make you a better fight fan. It makes you a more committed fife fan. I'll give you that. But it doesn't make you better..

No, I'm just I'm making the point he's getting favorable matchmaking. But I don't have a strong opinion one way or the other. I just wanna see. And so, you know, but the thing about he came for WWE great. But what's nothing for is? This endgame, Bobby Lashley. What's his n game? I don't know. We'll say let's see how good he is. Maybe he's actually going to contend for title. Right. Because he did he did wrestle collegiately thousand JIMBO get in the gym don't ochre does. Well with the small picture something about big business. Small Fisher stuff Coker's game to his he'll just book something just to have it on a specific event with no real idea of what's going to happen beyond that. Yeah. All right. Let's transition. If we can't let's talk about the latest McGregor Khabib news. First of all. I just find it hilarious that what was it to twenty nine UC to twenty nine was October six mistaken. So let's see November six December six January six we're now what almost ten to eleven twelve weeks passed that quite twelve but certainly ten or eleven weeks past the point where that happened, and we still don't have any disciplinary finality about this reviewing the tape. Yeah. My guy we wait the closer. We all going to be grandfathered any. Retroactive retroactive. So won't matter. I understand. But if you knew what the punch was gonna be a while ago, you could at least begin to think about what you're going to be for match-making a more serious way. So it's I find it so annoying that these Shinsho commissions. We have to really consider the evidence just give stop lying all right event. So there's that that's coming up what next week if I'm not mistaken so kind of resolution about that pretty close anyway. So I don't want to talk about we'll make one brief comment. We're not even gonna discuss on the show. I'm gonna say one thing there are rumors floating out. There about Conor McGregor being involved in an alleged incident. I get Email after Email after Email asking me why no one is discussing. This is all I'm going to say right now, I have no affiliation with that team.

"Like losing the having an lose or Arab people and all of them are like, Erin PICO. That's because they thought that was a slam dunk. And I think that you know, they're not we're going to mitt that. But I think that the thought was he's going to kick off his reign then got set back, but I feel like we're firmly. And now he's got a veteran guys face. I think is the perfect match for him this point in time hinder Carl's, right? He's won four or five dollars one like four or five fights in Rohe's tough, dude. I think that it'd be if he showcases well, I feel like we're going to be entering into that space a little bit because they do get this nice no competition weekend. I feel like people paying attention to the fight. And he's going. I if if he does what he's been doing he takes Houston Ford. And I think he has that potential to be their guy. I mean, they're guy at the very top of the Jimmy ask you bear to question for a second. If peco becomes who we think he can be and want him to be how does Bill to keep them long-term on ships. Take what do they do? Do get into own swim with that money. What do they do to keep him? I'm not sure signed people to bring them over. Let them do boxing matches. Let him go for do some kind of or amateur wrestling for money or some unlimited picograms, whatever you wanna do the he should have his last name B R nicknamed grams. I'm sure it's gonna every idiot on Twitter. But I'm not sure that's a that's a challenge that Scott Coker gonna have. That's I don't have to worry about that right now. Because I think even he recognized that still waiting to have the win at your back in terms of your matchmaker. Because Henry Corrales is interesting choice because he's the best of that division has to offer and came up short against the better ones. However to your point he is a pretty formidable striker bites down the mouthpiece kinda guy to when he needs to be so peco's, not careful Corrales is not the guy to play too many games, and he can sleep people too. So he's got a lot of knockouts wreck. He's he's a very very interesting test PICO if you fight up to his potential should win this, no problem. But he's got to fight up. There's potential that's sort of the he's been more reckless against lesser competition. But I feel he had any lakes to stand on to be reckless that all coming off of that. I think it was the aggression that he went after Leandra ego with I was like, you know, I couldn't you would think you would think a knockout like in his debut like. Had it will pull him back a little bit. But no Alaska rookie Ben day Haas who who is very I like James, James Gallaher. I've met James gal her in person. He actually is the sweetest kid people. Don't think that because all you see on TV is this like over the top brash guy. But in person, it's the total opposite. So in any event, he got his come up four getting in day Haase's face bend. They of course, had legendary when he's back in action against the very challenging one or Gillette, so three five on that car definitely pay attention to. It's actually pretty good card in the arms making his debut on that car on the freedoms though. Right. Yeah. Right. Jack Jack slack. We're just not gonna Jake because this is why the coke is like coca card because back in the Herschel Walker a bible lash, you always had that guy was getting his chance. I have no strong in one way or the other before I condemn or before I praise I would like to see how he looks to me. It's interesting. These fighting the guy puts the cheese inside the hotdogs in my local gas. They gotta be, you know, it's probably a pretty full diet..

"I thought that was a really good number. And if their subscription, I'm guessing subscriptions are documented legit, but six hundred thousand you're right. It's it's the whole point of that would be that would be more than five pass. Exactly. And I think that's the whole point of this. And if that's the actual number and that was all caused from one UFC event, that's a slam dunk, man. So good for guys like I used to work at ESPN during a time. When may was not getting a push, and it was very held to see that come full circle guys, like Anthony, more mile care importantly, where champions behind John attic mentioned down the broadcast come around. It did feel good to see the sports that oughta people scaffolding there really are full stamp of legitimization. Not that it's you know, it's. Into to a truck with saying that article that you know, they've Meltzer road fighting dot com. I believe the percentage of for males. I think the demographic was from eighteen to thirty four like sixty nine percent that we're watching the basketball game the college basketball game stuck around to stick to watch the same thing with the female. I think it was like sixty six percent. So part of the reason why the us he wants to be on ESPN. It's the catch all the sports fans. Right. That props not exposed to the UCLA that much. Well, you got your answer there. If people are just watching basketball sports fans, right? They let it competition popping up which is fighting and they're sticking around. And it's it's a success. Something I mentioned last time one of the things about SPN is completely different from FOX and everything. It's just an idle station. People put on the spin and just leave it there. They don't even they don't even it doesn't matter. What surrounds bars if exactly they will just leave it on their in their homes people a lot of just put on ESPN, whatever's on ESPN is what they're watching. That's that's a complete difference between FOX's I felt like, you know, their programming. So very so different. You never knew. And I'm talking about the main FOX. But of course, Fox Sports one was starting out. I don't think that people are idling as much on the on the channel. But he has PM has that Bilton where people will just leave it on like, you mention any any bar any public place, but a lot of people their living rooms, I've been tons of people's homes where they have it on ESPN, then they're not really changing. So that's that's another benefit for this whole, you know, more eyeballs on UFC. Let's go down the line that I would generally agree. I think as a little high because we've couple things that went wrong from success factor. A could I critique certain elements of the broadcast? I certainly like the pacing. I like the creative idea of having a coach as a broadcaster on the air. I don't know if I love that you just copy and paste your Fox Broadcasting not that anything against any of those members. They're all really good. But you're starting a new era and to start a new era with the same old pieces. Have that there would be a production? Refresh. And there wasn't an again, I've mentioned this before one of my colleagues who worked at FOX was like well, yes. Use producing right. Okay. So I expect some. Nudie? But it's also ESPN. It's new it's the first one you've had in seven years. I I don't know. I kinda thought it would be what did you? What would you have changed? Is there some element? I think I would have rotated just grandfathering in all the talent. Yeah. That was a little weird. I wouldn't do graphics package. Certainly brought back face the pain. I mean, I don't know. I I can't. You guys think it's a joke. It's truly the most indefensible broadcast. I didn't even ask yourself. What is the least defensible broadcast decision in.

"You'll get four fights there including Donald ceremony and Alexander, Hernandez, kind of been acting. Well, it's. Been portrayed almost like the combing event. They're technically aren't and we'll get to that. And just a second. But it's a high profile fight. It's old school versus new school. It's bad blood. You know this couple little. Little subplots. They're happening between these two guys. But they'll be on big ESPN and those fights start at eight PM eastern finishing up at ten pm eastern when they go back to. Yes, PM. Plus, why does that sound a bit bizarre that the title fight is on ESPN? Plus, we'll guess what they want you to sign up for ESPN. Plus, so they're going to put it on ESPN. Some prelims fights with marquee fight. Like, Donald Cerrone vs. Alexander Fernandez to get you to sign up for ESPN. Plus, so that's the strategy. I'll think going forward it would be like that. But that's their strategy now. Greg hardy and Allen Crowder is the Komeda vent. Their Henry Suharto defending his flyweight title versus the bantamweight champion T J dillashaw dropped to one twenty five pounds. That's that's your main of it. Now, why did they kind of push Surani verses hardy or Hernandez because Hardee's had the issues. In the past. If you've always NFL career he's had these allegations of domestic abuse. And I think just from a PR standpoint, it probably wasn't. The. That along with Rachel ostrich. I think they just wanted to shy away take a little bit of the spotlight away. Now on the same token there not shying away from putting him on in the of features. So I'm on I'm a bit confused. But I that's what I just think that was no reason to have them there when they can have the other two there. But that's a big spotlight for Greg hardy in the event of this. I I caught on ESPN definitely. And I don't want to derail the conversation. But I do want to touch back on something. Get your opinion. Something I forgot to see when we're talking about great Cardi. We talked about we already covered his response to in a way the company's response, and and you know, talking about the the layout here, but you guys were at the contender series that he fought on. Correct. Both you guys I wasn't at the George was that that one game that season. I just was doing my right of sorts easier for me to cover from home. So I didn't go to go to those. But the one thing I noticed, and we talked about how how well he's he handles himself. And you guys were kind of nodding to that saying, you know, the NFL guys it's a different breed. Right. And for sure and I. Gave him credit for that fairly. But what was kind of what was worry me as we see a bunch of guys, whether they're they're they're they're they're pumped up for real or they're turning it on everything in between their wacky after fight fight. It takes them want to come to earth. Y'all got you gotta give them a little bit of pass. You can't condemn guy for how he is. Of course. We love it when they show respect and check on their opponent.
