Minor league baseball player. Eddie alvarez he said quote just to get the honor to represent the united states to hold the flag the symbol of liberty of freedom. My family came over from cuba to this country. And if it wasn't for them doing that i wouldn't be in the position. I am in now being a first generation. Cuban american my story represents the american dream. That dream is still a reality as long as we are willing to hold it high for the world to see save the cheerleader and save the world one last thing. I'm sure by now you've seen the video of the cat. Falling from the stands at the miami hurricanes game on saturday night. If you haven't you need to find it and watch it. It's been captured by so many angles. A black and white cat dangling above the stands barely hangs on with its claws nearby fans strain to reach the cat before it falls thirty feet to the level below the crowd gasp and screamed when after nearly twenty minutes of that cat struggling it loses its grip but then something happened craig cromer and his wife kimberly they were in the lower level and they held the two corners of an american flag.

"I don't care. And i don't know how you guys can look the other way and say well we're still going to give you on the top spot. It's okay to. It's okay to get disqualified. You still you can still be number what i fight feeling. As if algebra sterling is the best bantamweight world. I don't say that. But i didn't. I didn't feel. I didn't necessarily feel that to john was the best band of wind. Let's also forget. Let's also not forget the rules at play here guys because there's no consistency. This is putting hitting the rule. Just writing off out jemaine. Sterling's win take. this is taking. This is taking the issue with the referees and officials because when this same exact thing happened a couple of years ago and a fight between dustin pori eddie alvarez when eddie alvarez egregiously through two knees and basically knocked out and he couldn't continue they call that a no contest now at the time i said that should have been qualification. He was clearly down. Eddie knew he was throwing the knees and it should have been a disqualification. They said no. It's no contest so now there's a no contest on his record. Instead of a win they ran it back and obviously dustin beat him and the right guy one in this case now. Ever disqualification the inconsistency the rules about. What's the disqualification. What's i'm not saying. It's wrong to be a disqualification. Said there's no there's no consistency in the rules. So one disqualification. Everything's no contest. I don't know who's right. Or who's wrong instance. 'cause nobody knows who's right or who's wrong. In that instance. So particular case i agree with sean d. I test is at that moment. Peter yon was winning. Should he be punished and having this title takeaway from sure but does that make me feel like..

"Absolutely. I am not taking anything from algebra. Algebra will be the first one to tell you. That's not the way he wants to earn it. That's not the way he wants to earn becoming the number one bands wave the world fighters qualification. He wants to go out there and beat peter yawn and when he beats if he beats peter. Young october i'll one hundred percent rank him as the number one benched way in the world. You bring up a good point. Then i think the way it actually out. Now hold on hold on the it actually worked out is a perfect because i agree with everybody in that. This is sort of where the division is right now. The number one number one being tied the way the point systems actually worked out because a few different people had some of these gentlemen number three on their list so the way the point systems worked out as very bizarre but actually worked out really favorably for us but to me comes the whole argument comes back to an idea of we trust our own eyes right because we sort of had this discussion last month internally when it came to corey san hagan versa. Tj dillashaw where. There are several of us on the ricky panels. And i will say myself included. Who still have corey. San hanging ranked above tj dillashaw. Because i trust my own eyes. And i watched that fight and i don't care what the judges said corset. Hagen won that fight. The judge make bad call sometimes. This one isn't necessarily the same situation. Because peter yang that was that was the right call for algebra to get that win but still. I watched that fight and peter. Yon came away from it. Feeling as if peter yawn is the better fighter between the two and to me. That's the spirit of what all of this is about right. When you're watching this how do you how how to instinctively when you're eye test. That fight leaves me coming away from this feeling like periodic. The best number one bantamweight in the world and it would be different if algebra sterling say got some random knockout or some hail. Mary submission and he won then. Sure i'll give him that. And then i would give him that number one spot but the way that ended with so inconclusive in terms of their actual standing in the division that to me. I feel fully justified. Still saying that peterman is the best bantamweight in the world. I think look i. I understand what you're saying there But for the result matters. Now listen jet and i anyone. Who's either read misfits or even listen to jet jet night of have a debate on say between the links or everybody. Just talk on any other. May fighting programming knows we. We love cheating okay. We we've approved. We fully approve of cheating cheating hundred percent absolutely however will. We don't support janet. I think i'm speaking for both of us in the situation. We don't support is getting caught. Don't get caught. Don't cheat in such a way that literally cost you a world title like there has to be consequences if things and in our case again. Sorry keeping free in our case. Those consequences extend beyond not just losing his officially sanctioned. ufc shiny goal belts. The punishment extends to a number one spot and and and the the official global rankings of the world not be an oxymoron. I don't care. And so i don't know how you guys can look the other way and say well we're still to give you on the top spot it's okay. It's okay to get disqualified. You still you can still be number one. I just you come away feeling as if algebra and certainly the best bantamweight in the world i. I don't know if i'll say that. But i didn't. I didn't feel that. I didn't necessarily feel that was the best band and win the wall. Also forget let's also not forget. The rules play here guys because there's no consistency and this is putting this taking getting the rules. You just writing off jemaine. sterling's win. This is this is taking. This is taking the issue with the referees and the officials because when this same exact thing happened a couple years ago in a fight between dustin pori and eddie alvarez when eddie alvarez egregiously through two knees and basically knocked out does support and he couldn't continue they call that a no contest. Now at the time i argued so that should have been a disqualification. He was clearly down. Eddie knew he was throwing the knees and it should have been a disqualification dunno. It's a no contest. now there's no contests on his record set of a win. They ran it back and obviously dustin beat him and and the right guy one in this case now have a disqualification. The the inconsistency the rules about disqualification. What's i'm not saying. It's wrong to be a disqualification. Said there's no there's no consistency in the rules. So wandering qualification. everything's contests. I don't know who's right. Or who's wrong instance. Because nobody knows who's right or who's wrong in that instance so in this particular case. I agree with sean. The eye test is at that moment. Peter yang was winning. Should he be punished. And having this title take it away from sure but does that make you feel like. He's not still the best bands weight of the guys currently competing. No i still think he's there but again four weeks you now. We're going to get our answer five eight weeks you now. We're going to get our answer. We're gonna find out who is truly bent winning the world until you know. Eventually we see guys like tj dillashaw corey san. He can get that makes again but for now those guys will fight and we'll hopefully find out for sure in october. I don't i. I understand i agree. There's always issues with consistency when it comes to officiating. Judging what have you ever may. I just don't see how that's sterling's problem. I don't see why he should be penalized because of the nebulous. A officiating issues. That are ongoing. In this case it was clearly ruled. in a way that was favorable to him Maybe eddie should have who need who in the past terrible who need who in the warriors hours again and i need for you. Maybe four eight didn't milk it enough. Which is another thing..

I got ahead and fill some bills and done what you wanted me to do and highlighted some cards and all this type of stuff. So you know you owe me you owe. You owe me some time off right. So i can be with my family right. Remember mcgregor was saying that shit after he Beat eddie alvarez to get the lightly belt so instead of spending time with a new board what did he do. He started negotiating. A fight with floyd mayweather which them that farce that that bullshit that happened. So they're nothing happened to still keep the belts. I don't know how long mcgregor had the federal way built but You know he held to belts hostage for a long time and because we don't want to piss off color because you know we will want to upset the cash cow. We acquiesce and do what he says. Fuck that bullshit. That would have been like look man. You want to go ahead and take some time off. You want to go ahead and spend time to newborn. You want to go ahead and do all the things fantastic. We'll see you back in six months. If you're not back in six months you're vacating both of those titles you to go ahead and make a couple of hundred million dollars. Fighting floyd mayweather go forward.

"Don't really have a problem with that whatsoever. I think honestly in shot out to the referee that was involved in that because he it looked as though he was getting ready to. Just say okay. You know what. I'm not really seeing any signs of life as far as an offense goes from conor. Mcgregor and yeah. You're hearing early on early on there when When mcgregor was doing some of those cakes remember that when he was just doing a little testing doing those kickstarter their support at one point. You kinda hear something a little funny importer. Portia he actually kinda. Hey you know he kinda just. Hey i think something broke. They're like he smell blood and For me personally. This is the third time that these guys have locked up right. third time. they'd these guys have locked up but then when you take a step further and you look at the pass handful of matches that conor mcgregor has had since what two thousand sixteen or whatever i mean. It's it's not frigging impressive. Because he's just been powering up on defeats just piling up on them. You know what. I saw conor mcgregor noble show. What i saw of him over the weekend. I hate to go to rocky reference but for me personally this guy is. I'm not gonna say he's washed up. I don't believe he's washed up. What is thirty three getting ready to turn thirty four later. This week is going to be thirty three later this week at. Nothing's going to be thirty four later this week.

Thirty one points. Even though mckell bridges had a career playoff night with twenty seven points and pretty much everyone on the big sons stepped up to the task for game two Milwaukee came out aggressively on. Set the tone early on in the first quarter and took the lead in the first quarter. boeing by three points and In the second quarter things really got things go in and everything but all in all sons go up to wo- couch fire in game two and game three.

And then let's look at The fights in between the first fight between mcgregor emporia and second fight between mcgregor. Emporia look at those fights and how that went for mcgregor and Talk about a third fight so the first fight Mcgregor won this fight And one route one via tko Mcgregor This was a time. Where mcgregor was the man you know he was the dude and ufc. In hughes's skin started seem like on pouring was sixteen three entering this fight and mcgregor. It's fifteen and two before to fight But blend doesn't was going for lay cakes in this in this first fight and doesn't was In the metality were he was really. You know just kicked the man's legs i no and For in connor as a result of this Kanda responded with you. Know this a plethora accommodation strikes Add with with a dozen rather his movements. Were kind of predictable. It at least a qatar's is there was predictable and Connor was this more alert that him entering that fight and he was gaining momentum but superstar like i said and With this you know. This is the conor. Mcgregor would houses breaking down and everything This was a car mcgregor. We haven't seen in a while and with that Mcgregor easily won on the first fight. Dress i'll know how to say it was. It's an easy fight for him at the end of today but When we when we. When i look at this fight and when i think about mcgregor's peak this was i believe when or around the time. That mcgregor was peeking in the ufc No disrespect poor or anything. He was sixteen three before this fight but he just wasn't the household name. Light mcgregor was when this fight was taking place but after this fight and talk about mcgregor's career in his legacy mcgregor After his fight. I fight after this on fought. Denisova one by tko. After that fought chad menendez won by tko. And by this point it was just it was mcgregor dominance in the ufc. I mean it seemed like pretty much. No one could touch him at this point and then just one you think you know. His career couldn't have skyrocketed any better his fight with jose out. Oh man it's just seemed it just seemed like it seemed like all. Those is so stressed about the moment and everything and connor was this loose as a goose and as a result of this connor. Knock this guy out and it seemed like everyone knew conor mcgregor. Then if you didn't know already and Without amine Mcgregor seemed unbeatable but his next fight. However through that a statement Wrong ed his next fight was to against a very very tough opponent in nate d. as he's fought in the in the last biggio. Ufc main card And he lost in that unfortunately but With this fight. He defeated mcgregor via rear naked choke but then Six months later mcgregor asked for rematch Versa d. as and be some via judge's decision And after his fight he fought. Eddie alvarez where An iconic moment during a press conference where Mcgregor was asked about you. Know who would be the toughest fighter on in the building For the press conference for this fight. And i forget what the guys name laws but it was the notorious you know who the heck are you statements. And as a result of this He defeated eddie alvarez by tko then the next night after this and this is where you know we start seeing you know losses being. I wouldn't say a common thing from for mcgregor but it's something that you know. He's not going to say he's not used to and what i mean by. This was fight and his loss against habib and He lost via net crack. And i'm gonna talk about. I'm gonna bring up Khabib be in this fight In in the later segments here but With this when after he lost a beep. mcgregor fights donald. Turin and this was a mcgregor and man. He came out to fight. Didn't go bald or anything. Had his hair perfect for to fight like he was about to go out on a saturday night. Bar crawl and literally just destroys breaks down surroun- in a matter of seconds. I mean when. I was walking this fight in when i was raking. You know my script down in everything. This fight by surroun- was something that i was like. Oh my god this. This is this is conor mcgregor. If you were to show any fight that would express connors. You know Fighting skills in his visual berkeley. I think this would be the fight to show versus around. I mean obviously the aldo fight. Everyone will talk about but for mcgregor to come out there with his hair. Perfect and everything and to come out without a scratch on his nose without his hair messed up or anything is a summit. I'd take in. I look at them. Like jesus christ like how. Can you just have the mentality of just going out there and doing that. Like it's it's it's something that non lot people can do. I will say that like it takes a lot of skill number one and a lot of heart to do that. I mean it's off to mcgregor for that but It seemed like you know that. Look and and that you know persona by mcgregor is something that we haven't seen in a while. That's something that. I touch sean. You know what's his first fight versus a pori and going into second fight in his second fight was the next fight after The cerrone fight and with this In the second fight is review of this doesn't set the tone he and just destroyed mcgregor's left calf and as a result he ended up winning and winning this match and dropped mcgregor but At at this point in the match when dozen was carrying out his lake hixon mcgregor's left calf portray tries go for takedown. Regret your makes it back to his feet but still mcrae or poor. Still going to those Lake kicks and in the second round going into the second round mcgregor's left calf is very very radley. It's visibly red and Pori clearly is leading up with those lay kicks and with this story continues the onslaught incentives that mcgregor and observes that mcgregor is weakened and just throws a plethora punches adam and finally delivers the final blow with a right hope that just drops mcgregor and with this and going into the third fight. You know congress talk and the law of trash you know..

"Richardson could claim to be the fastest woman in the world right now. She won the 100 M at the U. S track and Field Olympic trials last month in Oregon in her time of 10 point Six seconds made her a gold medal favorite at the Tokyo Olympics. The Olympics begin this month, but Richardson has been suspended for 30 days due to marijuana use. Here's more Several top athletes have rallied behind Shakeri Richardson after she lost her shot at Olympic glory because of a 30 Day ban triggered by a failed marijuana test last month. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes tweeting quote. This is so trash man. Just let her run Former NBA great Dwayne Wade tweeting. The majority of y'all's rule makers smoke and are probably invested in THC companies. Let's stop playing these games. Richardson won that 100 M at the Olympic trials in June. But then her world came crashing to a halt. When reports of the positive test surfaced on Thursday, Richardson put out the tweet. I am human and spoke to the Today show on Friday. I know what I did. I know what I'm supposed to do. Um, No, I'm not. I'm allowed not to do And I still made that decision. She said she had just learned from a reporter that her biological mother had died and turned to marijuana, which is legal in Oregon side of the trials, but remains a banned substance of abuse based on the world Anti Doping Code. We all have our different struggles. We all have different things we did with, But I put on the face to have to go in front of the world and put on my face and hide my pain. Who am I to tell you how to cope? Who am I to tell you? That you're wrong for hurting. The United States Anti Doping agency said The typical punishment for a positive THC test is a three month band, but it was reduced to one month because her use occurred out of competition. And was unrelated to sport performance. Don't judge me. I am human. I'm new. I just happen to run a little faster. Richardson is still eligible to run in the four by 100 relay. That event occurs after her 30 Day suspension ends in late July. The final two members of that relay team have yet to be named, leaving the door ajar for Richardson's possible participation.

"Know, generally generally have. And then a guys know I'm the same in general. These guys are Olympic athletes at this point back then they were generalists, You know? Okay, a boxing. Okay, jujitsu. I don't think they were. They weren't as rough as Bob Blue was, Um And, um You have to look him up to if you're out there, listening. One outstanding fighter. He thought all the best people in the U. S. C. Um I happened just to study him in and out on tape for that competition. I mean, I literally, uh, the match before him. There was a Olympic wrestler guy from Iran or something like that, that I went against me. He just looked like he was a ball of muscle. So I was actually more worried about that guy had to get through him to go to Bob Blue and then to the next guy. And yes, so I didn't have the luxury when I competed to go against it. You know, people that were at my rank Because I was the first in line We were, you know, kind of the first judicial people in America. And so when I was, you know, just a purple belt that was like a black belt in America. So there you know, nobody else was a permanent. They saw that belt and the room was like, Wow, Let's watch this match. So they would pit me against the Giants to that were also very good at Jiu Jitsu. So generally like a bigger dude would get their purple belt faster because they were just smashing everyone at the gym, you know, and so instead of me going against someone in my weight class, they got to. You know, these promoters got a kick out of putting this little kid against these monsters. And you know, most of the time I came out, I came out on top. So talking about the USC, which is obviously heavily influence through present jujitsu. I've known you for 14 years and I got to meet. You know, Frankie Egger is UFC champion because of you and balanced studios. How many UFC fighters or champions? Have you and balance trained and cornered. It is countless. I mean, yeah, So so So, you know, like, coming through balance training with us and helping corner you know, you would see Eddie Alvarez has been through there. Charlie Brennaman. Um and, uh um, Frank, he's been through there. Obviously. Frankie Edgar 1st 1st couple fights. Uh, Anton Berzin for UFC. You know, like I had court right below me right now. Corey Anderson. USC was training. And so the guys, they use the space we get out there, we corner room and you know, a lot of the guys have come out on top and not just UFC have you know a lot of Belich or fighters and then Question for you. So this is important because especially now these are not like these are current champions. And oh, yeah. Terrific Athletes that you're working with The fight camps are so serious. Why do you feel that These people are choosing you because at this level of publicity and money as a pro sport now that UFC is they could choose any camp to work with that These people are choosing their seeking out the my glorious brothers. Why do you think these Superb athletes want to be trained by you and your brother. A lot of the time. It's because we we only pick Certain for you to do it with right? So we need the most serious. You know, the guys looking for the gold and no BFC, we We don't You know, I don't think they have time for it, nor do we. So these are guys that are the most coachable And, you know, most talented, the most serious about what they're doing. And those are the best partners anyway. To have in any sort of thing. Yes. No, I love this now. So your training UFC athletes UFC champions In addition to the UFC, if I if I'm if I have my information correctly, you trained the FBI, The Marines, the SWAT teams. And you know real serious law enforcement where and you do weapons defenses and things like that. Can you talk about that's serious stuff. This is combat. And this is people's lives. How is is Brazilian jiu jitsu to relevant? For law enforcement and military and high level federal agents. Well, number one. It's self defense to save your life so that you know you get grounded by somebody That is, you know, has a weapon or as bigger, stronger and just, you know. Insane. You need to get up and get out of there and routine your weapons. So the jiu jitsu that that we developed for law enforcement for military is specifically for that first self defense to keep these, you know, officers healthy and alive, and secondly, it is used for apprehending suspects. So, um, and it works. That's the biggest thing. It's not, You know, It's not like it's without truth. So these things work and every at this point, so I started in the nineties early nineties. Doing things with the FBI doing things with SWAT teams in New York City, you name it, the kind of worked with them. You know, Homeland security. I've worked in flexi down in Georgia. Everywhere all over the United States and you know, I've led You know clinics with over 100 people in the room coming out just to just to learn some of those ju jitsu stuff. But like I said, it literally a lifesaver has been proven sort of tall. What's that, like for you? Because for me, there's there's this sport and there's the art again. We talked about earlier before the show martial artists. Sometimes people forget the aid. There's an art to it. There's a passion. But when you're talking about saving a person's life, like these law enforcement officers, they have Children, these soldiers, these SWAT team members, these people are putting their lives in harm's way to serve and protect. Theoretically, right, And so what does that feel like for you and for your team to be able to literally save lives and protect people by your teachings? That's gotta feel good brothers. Well, It is the reason why I still do and teach Ju jitsu today, so not just the law enforcement but to regular people and based off of the letters and conversations I've had with students over the years. They don't just do Jiu jitsu just to be a badass. That's not the idea. So there's so much more to it, you know, like without getting too much into it. This art has kept some of our students on this earth alive. Because they were able to get through difficult things because they had. You know this sort of ju jitsu mindset that teaches you how to relax. Pause. Everything has an end. You know, you'll get through this sort of thing. So that's the idea and for law enforcement. It's a must to stale, you know, to stay alive at your job that you go to every day, so I was going to say something about law enforcement and teaching them. So when I teach a regular student I never get questions like Will that work? Prove it. So with law enforcement. I've never had to choke out so many students to prove that it worked. So law enforcement and military they're like, No, I don't think this stuff works, but I can do it in a kind way. Get a rack it up. Hug him around their neck with a little choke, and they're like, Wow, this works. I've had it multiple times I had approved to law enforcement and the military that you know this stuff works. I'm a you know, I started as a little kid and I took out too. You know, Two of my students in the law enforcement class, too. And I'm like Mary, you need to know this stuff. There's no way it is magic. I got a question on that because I didn't know this. This is hysterical. This is definitely like awesome to hear from you fill. So have you ever trained like a Navy seal or like a combat elite soldier? And tap them out. What was their reaction? As if you're like a Navy seal or a combat soldier, like, Well, here's the other thing, too. So there's a two parter..

"Underway main card at 10 P.m. eastern on ESPN, plus pay per view. And I want to go out now to the Goodyear hotline, because right now we have the privilege to talk to one of the greatest fighters in the history of mixed martial arts and a man who knows Dustin poor economy Gregor and Michael Chandler, better than most. He's the one and only He's the underground king. He's the Prince of Philadelphia. He's Eddie Alvarez. Eddie, my man. How are you? Maximum? What production? That's what we did that already. It's great to talk to you again. Eddie and I miss seeing you fight. We haven't seen you fight since August of 2019 obviously 2020 a little funky, but you're finally coming back in April. Is that true? Yeah. Finally come back now. You probably mean to get in there just colder kept back and things up and in Singapore in Asia, so it just keeps kind of the restrictions. The rules change every other day. So finally, April April set and I will get you able to get back in there. Okay. Well, that is great news. I'm looking forward to that obviously wanted to have you on because you will forever be linked to Michael Chandler. Both of you guys had one of the greatest fights of all time back in November of 2011. He beat you that night. You got one back on him A couple years later, Of course, you fought the support. A twice is one you fought. Connor McGregor as well at Madison Square Garden First show in MSG history for the UFC could ask you about the statement. That I made that you may have heard there at the at the beginning of this segment. I said that I still believe Khanna McGregor is one of the most underrated fighters in the history of this born. I know that sounds crazy initially because people say Whoa, big star, the hoopla, the buzz and all that, but I don't feel like people still give him the respect that he deserves for his skills Skills alone. Do you agree or disagree with that? I could understand what you mean by that. I think. Even I'd I had some difficulty explaining to fans that I believe Connor was a better wrestlers. And Dustin for you and I, and in my eyes, it was really obvious and real statement but to the regular public, they looked at me like I was silly. So yes, I get where you're going out with that with that shape I great So you think he's a better wrestler than just important? Why? Um I like people were telling me well, what if the ostentation Connor down? I'm even think that was an option for Dustin play. I just don't think he's that dominant of a wrestler to be able to enforce that kind of game on comic value, especially Especially when Connor was getting ready for could be for the past. You know, two years or so you got to know that he hadn't having high level wrestlers in his camp and that he's up that part of his game significantly, so Um, to go from training for wrestling like to be to fighting a guy like doesn't points. I sort of downgrade of a grappler. So, um, my eyes if they both put on a single arm wrestle each other, feel economy, Greg would win that wrestling match. So I don't feel like that's a threat to con offer dusty the threat in that manner. I feel like a duck and can win the fight and there is ways For him the win, but I don't think that's it, and I think people are kind of given that more. Of an advantage and what it needs to be. Okay. So you said you see past the victory for Dustin for you. Can you tell us those paths? Yes, I think it's small sprints. I think it's 20 seconds, friends, 30 seconds sprints, and Dustin does he does. He's well, he gets into the flight. He gets his rhythm, and then he begins his little short sprints that he does. Where he like overwhelmed his opponents with volume and I feel like that's his path to create panic in there. Get Connor to make mistakes. If you believe Connor on the outside. Hell be. It'll be flawless. He doesn't make many mistakes. The only way to make him English stage is as if he if he panics. He's got attacked. He's got a great panic. You've got to create sprints, and he's got to get in Connor space. You need to close the distance, and that's that's how dark and gets it done is to make this thing of flight. Make it a ball. Um, Otherwise, I feel like keeping Connor on the outside allows him to get confident allows him to get creative and Connor and that kind of mode. He could be dangerous to anyone. Are gonna Eddie Alvarez, who has fought economy Gregor to support you and Michael Chandler a combined five times. So he knows these guys very, very well. When you say, you know, make it dirty Get in his face. Don't you feel like there's a chance he gets Khatemi Connors the harder punch her right. He's the better boxer. My opinion as well. Isn't that a recipe for disaster or is that just is only shot. It is a gift to me. It is only shot, so it stays on the outside. He's in worse danger. So like he wants to play the hand that I think is going to be his best hand, and that's is that hand. That's where he has the most advantage. Here's Here's what I'm I watched us and flights today. I watched a few of them, um, just just kind of going over this in my own head. And here's where you get a little a little bit sticky for Dustin. Austin throws a straight left hand and he scores with it a lot against a lot of guys. That's how we start kind of his sprint. He throws a straight left, but where Where can go wrong is he brings his back foot forward with his left hand? I did that on Connor. I shot my right hand. I call it Bart. But I brought my foot up. And when you do that, you're in quicksand. It's very hard to get back on balance and get back, ready to fight and ready to defend against. Dustin does that shoots his his left hand or right hand away does and stepped up his back foot. Their supports him in a really bad compromised position for kind of accounting, and I could see that kind of sequence happened. And Dustin Dustin get the worse for wear in that in that exchange there. I'm The more I watch. It's like from what kind of scene that sequence happening for Connor, where he could take advantage of that. So doesn't got to do a sprint. You gotta do that in order to win, but he needs to keep that back foot back. You can't keep shooting that back foot forward with with that hand the way he normally does the way that it normally works for him. Against Connor won't work for me. Fascinating inside here from Eddie Alvarez. This is great stuff. So ultimately who's your pick? And how I think I think Connor gets it done within within the 10 minute. Mark. Um I don't. I don't see it Get in or third around. I do. It's all for it to get north the ground. Just like any other fan out there to see Connor in 1/4 round would be great because you know everybody wants to see him..

"I'm one of those speaking to the people there at the club Lord Sounds like they were saying that this kind of thing will have Ah, reverberations throughout the community for decades to combat we're talking 30 40 years on top of all that. He gave every child in the football club. The Christmas present other gear bag on a football and with them the night their names are on the football bag. I mean little things like this. I am a huge gestures for his local community and promise that took place. You know, they won't be afraid to tell you how they feel about you over there for them. I can tell you they're very proud of them. I think for a while, they didn't know how to feel about everything going on it. So it's the octagon. Proteins like this worth their weight in gold on you could tell speaking to the people at the club how much it meant to them. Talking pizza. Carol, a man who's been covering Connor McGregor longer than anyone in the M m a media business. What was the first time you saw Connor fight? The first time I saw him fight, I believe was 2000 and 10. I'm not there to go. I called Mike Ward and eight seconds and I can remember I had a no pat on my lap as we do. Am I just wrote Connor McGregor before you were so quick all around with Kana McGregor, UFC, and that was cool, calm and from there, Of course it wasn't well when he was doing that kind of team. Nothing going down there in the regional seems so quickly. He was eventually signed by cage Warriors. He won both world titles. Her cage. Where's in Dublin, Ireland. And from there, we knew he had the potential to go on to be a champion in the UFC, and we followed right the way through, and I think a lot of people told me you were crazy. And remember our friend Gary. Dave Davies, speaking to me directly after the knockout of Michael scrimmage and kind of regretted debut and he said, You think he's gonna go all the way? Don't you know? You said yes. Am I still after him? Every time we've seen for that one. That is amazing. So I actually wanted to ask you about, you know, I think when people hear the stuff that you were talking about the donations and what he's doing in his community. You know, we're programmed to roll our eyes. Sometimes that this stuff right Because of you know what we've seen in the past from other athletes, other celebrities and because of what he was doing in 2018 in 2019 a lot of that stuff that he was caught on camera doing punching the old man in the bar, the dolly all that stuff. You know? It feels to some, like, Oh, this is all just p r. This is disingenuous. I know that this is an impossible question to answer. It's been asked of me. I'll ask it of you. Do you feel like as he puts it? The storm is behind him. Do you feel Like he has figured out how to be famous. How to the economy, Gregor and he will no longer go through the stuff that he went through a couple years ago or Like Is a kind of you know yet to be seen. Has that story not officially been told yet because he's still so young. I think it's yet to be seen a real, but I've never been as confident that he's in a great place, mentally and physically. And, you know, there was a lot of Soylent for many years between me and the camper was very hard for me to speak to them. But I've been speaking to these guys all the way back from the start this company flag off, often speaking to his family. Everyone is so happy where he is a very proud of his mental development as well. I'm really I haven't been this confident Economist magazine's tattoos 16 2040 with Eddie Alvarez because the surrounding point We can't really know what was gonna happen there. We didn't really understand why he was fighting Donald's Ronnie. But it all makes sense to me now because he needed to go through that for you two made a foundation for this. I don't believe if you put those temporary and against economy Gregor last January. I don't think many people would give Connor much of a chance in that voice. He needed to go through this. You needed to grow. I think he has grown exceptionally over the course of the year and I'm really, really come for the contract. You know yourself very. Like I spoke. You have the Mayweather for you ahead of the hoofbeats like, Oh, it was not confident economist regular at all. And this is the most common those bean and my starter is with you misbehave again. I mean, that's too hard to say. But I feel like this is the most confident I can be. In him staying on the right track on staying in the octagon on keep competing on hopefully Hopefully go on to cement a legacy at 1 54. The authority could have because After the Eddie Alvarez for You always thought he could do anything. I thought that was the most. That's one of the great performance I've ever seen in the history of the UFC. It was absolutely phenomenal. And the going isn't outrageous. Florida people forget this viewpoint through that. Just last week on the show with D. C, How underrated The fighter is because of all this order, stupid story the cage. You know, it's like You forget it there, what the going can actually do what he's in peak condition on them. I think that's what he needs to remind people of this guy is a once in a lifetime. I please and I do. Sometimes the headlines. All the craziness gets in the way that you need to just get back to showing people what he does when he's got the gloves on, and that's down the cater another mine. Does he win tonight? I think it's a huge void. But I'm very confident on very constantly one. He reminds me of the economy. Gregor from 11 4012. He used to turning the love with Jonah Nelson back down and became like another risk group. Stay with a few swear words thrown in the mix. You know, he was so focused. And he was he was needed. Speaking like a monk, and even noticed in his interview with you in his press company, so calm and calculated on, he's obsessed with the fight game again. We've seen him bringing guys but he can land from in the postures for you might remember Ito portal, those fantastic movement monster that he learned so much from, but he also used to do that back in 30 days. Taekwondo code code called Johnny Dag. And all those spinning kicks home from those days of Johnny Johnny Garrigan on there, we see Still so, Cliff come in. This is very interesting because he didn't bring in a boxing coach from the messy weather for you. He was just using the girls that were around, which was is absolutely amazing. And then for the surrounding boy he brings in feel something. This is his first coach. Never in combat sports. He forced walked through the doors, equipment boxes, one of the 10 year old and there we have all the goals in common in there all the different cultures. He's zooming in on that he has laser focus on boxing at the moment, and I feel like this is really showing me that he has the hunger back. He wants to prove something. I know a lot of people think that more You have some to do with the money talk you and I might well do For me, the fact that he's obsessed the fact that he wants to continue learning and he shall in such an appetite for it. It's filling me with confidence that you're going to get the job done against Donald. Sorry and Justin Party tonight. Excuse it. Beauty. I love you great stuff.
