"I think the most important thing that came out of. The announcements made over the weekend was Israel out of signing versus Paulo Kosta. Now, kind of has. A A change state but an official date it's UC to fifty three. Now, what appears to be September twenty six not on September nineteenth, which is what we were reporting. Or everybody was reporting. By soon as recently as last week. When I heard that I wasn't having on the nineteenth I went oh, no 'cause I thought somebody got hurt. Basically just moved the date. Jon. Morgan did ask Deena is in. Invasion Dana wouldn't commit to either one. So who else is on the card Mario Against Kevin Vera, Kaikoura Francis Brandon Roy. Remember this is the paper of you call Claudia Gedalya versus Yawn. Gene? Hacking to versus Zebra to Gov. Sarah. Versus Jessica Rose Clark Randy Kosta versus journey newsom Mercedes Beck. Dick. Rutan Edwato. Garrett Gauri. Now, Look Nafta out sign on Costa we need something. I can stomach Kaikoura France versus brandon royal those guys. Okay. I'll take it. Or give me rhinovirus various but don't give me those two and cost not a Sonya like I, need to see some heavy artillery. You know what I mean. You got yourself those great of a main event is you're gonNA delivered anybody two guys that are undefeated in talking shit to each other. Who are just divert their spot, hell yeah. All Day. mccomb on. Let's dress it up a little bit. Let's start off with a solid combing. And need to. I. Need Three more matchups three. Big. Ones I like it, I mean they don't have to be titles what if they paired up with another? Good coping and Woodley. They're actually going to headline the nineteenth event but I would love for them to be here. But just them and you're happy or no I need one more really. Yeah. The pay-per-view i. Nine Bucks and they want you to to become part of ESPN two. You know yet to do that monthly you commit to that. Then only then you can order the pay review. You don't get a satellite transmission you get. You know Internet I, just need one sometimes buffers or whatever and. So yeah, they ask a lot, fuck? Yeah I'M GONNA ask a lot to a fan. I ain't hating but. Just, think when Moore is good. What if it's fight week right and let's say there's no pandemic or let's say you're part of a group that's gotten together and you're in a bubble in your safe. You got the stakes crillon. The Cooler full of beers and everything. And then Thursday night falls off. That thing takes ahead, write that your party just took a hit. That's what I'm saying I I like to see I like it like when Mazal didn't sign up. To, fight I was still okay with that view in your was pretty solid. They had the two, the two title fights at vacant and then the other one. But then when they put it in and it was like fucking Christmas, I loved it. But. The one before that with Felicia Spencer. A man that was. Yeah. No I mean I hear you I. would probably be okay with just one more power fight on their. Or. GimMe two three more solid matchups. Yeah you're like your Jaydee. Struck, that type of our Bolsover Soda Ucf all take that. You know I'll take that are both built his name he's already sold me. I'm an exciting fighter and so it's yourself. So I would take something like that. I don't take something like Oh Molly Vera you know whatever and COVINGTON versus Woodley. But I can't have what we see right now. See that's a match up that's been made. It's an all over tenth though Barbosa versus if it's not the card with gauge versus Hubby by the way, if you're wondering these are all fight nights these are all just filling in on different nights. ALDANA and home they're fighting. One fight one week before so dijk Yourselfer Edson Barboza, and I don't even know if these are main. No. This is a main event I should say it clarifies that. Home result Don I would take home Saldanha on the Kosta now it'd make you that much happier. Well, no, but it's it's star power a little bit and the winner especially with Saldana could be looking at title shots you know. The stakes are high. That's A. Those are two of the match ups that I saw I mentioned. Actually. I guess they haven't really reported COVINGTON and would lead. But what Dana White said was that they both have agreed and it's looking very likely. Like. That's the. Damage. Done I guess. but. The UC's WANNA backfired island. We just don't know win. So we know we don't know where these events are gonNA take place. I imagine the cost Oughta Sonya as a fight island. Don't you? If you look at the card and who's on it, it makes the most sense but why not say it right 'cause one guy from lives in New Zealand. The other guy is in Brazil and then go through the card i. mean I suppose maybe now things are. I wouldn't say loosening up. But it's not like there's not Brazilians you know in the United States and. New. Zealand's a country that's been pretty safe. So might be. Demi Hooker fought over here against employees as so. Maybe, Israel could fight down here but I I could see them wanting to maybe do that one in Yazd Island Vittori says, he thinks he's going to get Chris wideman. I think he deserves it. I liked that fight better than seeing rock golden right Wiedeman. By? Neil. Darioush gets Charles Oliveira goes. Tolbert third. That's home Aldana. I mean. As a good fight, it's a really, really good fight. So yeah. Those are those are some of the ones that. Kind of came through I guess in the last. Four or five days. report says I'll be back. He did. was very thankful to the NFC the to matchmakers and Dana White saying look they went above and beyond but I will make my way back. He got cut about two three weeks ago..

"Eleven a._m. Pacific including the title fight of habib habib number made offers is the interim champ dustin pedroia so they're looking to unify that lightweight title factors five lightweight match ups goes if you think about it you got diggle. Oh for versus moore back to <hes> and you got islam maka scheffers dhabi ronald koeman event which is edson barboza felder in the only other thing out there. That's not a lightweight. The division fight in the main carte asia meal abdurakhimov versus curtis blazers some heavyweights so you can't really argue about that <hes> that main card right now. I don't think that's the most exciting vision those guys are gonna be going nuts over there. What's even more important and interesting well. Maybe not more but what will really be interesting. Sing is weighing day every single. One of those guys need to weigh in at one fifty five point well at least at least mine while auto the market would fight habib beef didn't make it in dustin had to fight then yeah i would. I would imagine felder barbosa and mauka chef. I don't know about the other guys if they're getting any form of title shot but fell. There already told us he was gonna win. One fifty five and instead he is and i'm glad you brought that up because all that by the way is going on they've already you know those open workouts and press conference all that's happening over there and they're twelve hours in advance so we're waking up to a lot of this type of news including like what we saw it. It'd be j. pen because apparently dana the white went from contender series the last one here straight to china straight to abu dhabi and he's also been filming some stuff there for dana white looking for five as well so check it all out on emi. Junkie are are people out there eclair including hanoun jon morgan and mike bonner hustling all right now with that goes. Give me some predictions. Has anything swayed you differently from more. You've already turned it in to the staff picks <hes> habib versus dustin who you like. I think it's a little silly. I mean it's so hard to pick into ebner mogamat off because he doesn't have very many holes <hes> but i did like an idiot and i took this boy because i know right i took dustin play just because habib has been hit and he has been rattled before and i feel like if dustin can hit them destin's pretty smart you know and i think he's finally balanced everything very wound own his game so i think he could capitalize on it and i think he could go in for the kill against happy but the worst feeling in the world will be of destined. Esten doesn't get his game off early on if dustin just kind of sitting around and waiting for habib even heavy takes them down. He's going to hate himself because that's his moment that's his opportunity to try and land a good shot on habib and get get the fight to go his way but if you never get off then what's the point right and we've seen that happen in so many any title fights. I really hope that game plan wise which we've seen with the american top team guys. They don't get enough credit. Their game. Plans have been pretty solid as of late. I really think that dustin has a good chance. I think it's gonna be a fun. I i don't. I don't think we'll see a be taken him down over and over and over again thing..

"We're would be smart to throw his hat in there when you are the champion at featherweight right now, you finally got a couple of names that are worth fighting that you can make big fights against that. You'd be favored to beat them. All. Let me ask you this. Did you see Poyet's championship material, once he left, one forty five and went up to one fifty five you had to reinvent himself? Max. All we can do the same thing. He's still young. And there is a process. He had to reinvent himself. He said he was in the mix for a title in just out of name value. We have to assume that that's true. That's true. But we're speaking of this as, as, if they were to fight right now still has a fight with Frankie. Edgar again all these guys are in their thirties. This division was going to look a lot different than a year or two from now. So. I'm not here's what I would say. I, I agree with. You just import aid. You guys what he had to say on the food food, drug diaries. I saw part of it, and it was all about the hallway fight when he basically said was he was like he was really happy with the effort. He said he was surprised that, like Bedia reaction afterward. Being strictly about the power. He goes, you know, to me, I won that fight because of smarts, and I found tiny opening accuracy was amazing. And I was like, there's no doubt that dust in his right about that. And on the other hand in fairness to the media reaction. I looked at the numbers. Do you guys realize that numerically max Holloway out struck him? Next Holloway landed. More on Dustin the Jerusalem, a numbers standpoint than the other way around, which is like crazy to think about because max would touch him and what happened. In fact, and then dust, and with touch him and his whole body would in. I mean it was ridiculous. That's why I think they focused on it. So somebody made a point to me if he's going to go back up. Probably take some time like, don't just like do your normal life. And then cut in less pounds bulk up a little bit to To get. get rid of the way class, I would say, you know, to go the distance with him. You know, look Alvarez couldn't do that twice. Gauge you couldn't do that twice. Max did it on the other hand, you got brutally beaten doing it. So I like the idea of a max Holloway versus an ally. Quinta or max hallway versus more, especially an Edson Barboza out of necessity. If it's if it's becomes clear that he hundred percent cannot make this way, consistently, and it's not healthy for him to do so move up if the idea is only on financials near like we can give you a Connor fight. We can give you a Habib fight after a beats the other killers in front of them then marketing wise you're gonna make that fight. But unless he's gonna commit to moving up. And like you said restructuring his body, I think he has a style that against the very elites will lead to him accumulating, a lot of damage..

"Any topic is on the table reminder on April fourth which is in two days. We will be moving to channel fifty six. You don't touch your preset at all the move will happen, right? You will be there on Thursday. However, if at some point you lose track or somebody must with your preset remember one fifty six that's where we'll be as of Thursday, April fourth. So today's from now. All right, so Edson Barboza lost to just engage it. But if you'll notice when he did subsequent interviews he had a little bit of redness. Around his right eye. He never used it as an excuse. But. A few of the people from his team like as manager Alex Davis. Good friend of the show. In his coach Anderson franca have posted some pictures of given some comments all right now, if you go to I guess, it's Anderson franca on Instagram or just easier. Good EMMY junkie to one of the top stories. They're shot up to finance practice for that story. You can see kind of what they're talking about. And it looks like in one of those exchanges. Remember, the fight was really quick. They were all over the place. Gauge he did. Poke? It doesn't look intentionally me because I've seen it in the video form at slow speed. And high speed. And but it happened. So it doesn't also look from their camp as if they're saying. Man, we would've won. If it wasn't for the they're not saying that they're not saying gauges that dirty bastard. They're not saying that at all if anything they can graduate him gave him and his team a lot of respect for the fight. There. Just wondering if the fight could have perhaps been different in. I do remember during the fight. It's kinda swiping at it. But when referee doesn't catch it, then I'm on the assumption that could have just been knuckle. You know what I mean? And but he was doing that. And remember they were I mean there. Cavs can't be feeling good. Both of them. The hit each other pretty good Iraq each other pretty good body shots everything. It was quick man. Pretty violent fight. But I understand their point. So normally, I think we go. Hey, man. We just move on. We revisit it down the line. Okay. Great. But remember this is the division with Habib never made off at the top. Does not wanna fight till November when his teammates clear, and they're all clear of the post UC to twenty six post fight. Scuffle that took place 'cause could fight in the summer..

"That. Hi, josh. How are you? How you doing? I'm doing quite. Well, you know, you got a couple of scuff there on the face. But you have a nice clean smile. You must be feeling. Pretty good. Yeah. Feeling great. I have a just a little black eye on a few few little cuts, but nothing major RAM enlist just get this out in the open. How on earth is it possible for knockout like that? You didn't get a bonus. I I'll be honest when you knocked him down. And he went it reminded me of the Edson Barboza knockout of Terry Etem where he went down like a wooden mannequin. I was like he is a guarantee locked to get a bonus. And it didn't happen. What happened man? Man. I thought the exact same thing as soon as I hit him in. It went down like that. I told you Araya Ghanian Joey in the corner was like finally, I'm getting a bonus unite thought, it was a shoe in for sure. And then I'm going back back stage in of course, the you know, the brands fright wind down and he got submitted. But that's okay. And then gay Chee in I figured there'd be some type of bonus in the main event in gates. You gotta you know, nice. He KO or knockout, whatever you wanna call it in. So I'm like Berkshire. I have to get one and all the the UFC staff. Everybody was like you're getting the bone is if you got your bonus yet. And then Danny pulled it up on his phone, and it didn't go to me. I thought he was joking. I was like there's no way. And and that was the case. So I don't know what I have to do. You know, I feel like what more can I do to to get a performance bonus. But I'm just super disappointed with that. That. Let me be honest. That's a little weird that UFC staff would kind of say something like that without knowing right? No, it's a it's just like people that I know, you know, in the back, the they've said it before, you know, like all you're getting the bonus for sure, you know, just kind of some of the people that I'm a little like closer with than in things like that. But but nothing like sentenced stone or anything, you know. Okay. Typically, it's what the matchmakers who decide this. How is your relationship with the matchmakers? I I'm cool with everybody. I don't really have much contact with them. Besides just when I see him fight week or at the way in just kinda of shake their hands say, hi and things like that. But yet, it's usually Dana. Why I wanna say mic Sean in read write in the kind of vote unanimously not that's just what I've thought. So I'm not exactly how it goes down. But. Glad-hand with them. You know, what I mean to lobbying does work, right? No, of course. Yeah. It works for sure. And I I know some of them are you may be a little tighter closer to certain people's managers and things like that. So I know every time there's a great performance or big finishes. I know those managers are in their ears. But from from the knockout like that people were telling me, it's it's one of the best knockout so far this year. And it's, you know, don't get don't get me wrong. It's the like the mass law. Knockout was great the pet is knocked out the gauging knockout. But those they still had a follow up. I landed one punch, and it was just it was like the lawn. This knockout, you know, just one punch I knew it was over just walk off home run when you landed. Did it feel super clean? Yeah. Exactly found it sounded it landed in a I just knew I hit him. And I just fall or saw him falling backwards and was gonna follow up with any more unnecessary blows. I knew he was out as he was falling down. Now. I know you didn't get the bonus which I wanted to circle back to in just a minute. But you have to feel pretty good on one level about the year. You've had coming back. And you know, Michael Johnson is a credentialed well respected opponent. That's about as nice of a land. As you're going to get over a guy like that you have to feel pretty good about that. You..

"Happen. I go they can make a one hundred eighty one sixty five one twenty two whatever they want to do when I'm gone they can do. Why is he so adamant goose I have no idea? It's really not shuffling very much. Honestly, we kind did the math yesterday with the fighters. You could say that the fighters that were taking from one fifty five and one seventy two form one sixty five would be a bad ass division. One more. Do you want? All right. He gets a little bit more specific here in cut number six. I think it's a lot of guys who know they can't win at either one seventy one fifty five that would all jumped ship. If you look at right now are one seventy pound division and our fifty five pounds of vision. They're stacked deep so you got you got who's mon- Woodley Covington wonderboy RDA Masbate all aspirin pill, puns anemia. Lawler edwards. Right. There's the one seventy division lightweight at fifty five. He got Habib. Tony Connor Pori? I acquainted Kevin Lee who's moving over to welterweight to make it even better Edson Barboza Keiichi pet. Oh, I forgot to pedestal is over in the welterweight division, which makes it even even better Sironi Felder Gillespie U D S you build a sixty five pound division you completely drain both of those divisions. And that is desert point area happening while I'm here, these divisions are stacked we have tons of great fights. And both the visions. We don't need sixty five pound vision. Well, that's what you did the thirty five and fifteen when you had a twenty five you picked off certain thirty five that were under size and twenty and fifteen hour over size, and we can those divisions that come up with lie way. And guess what? Flyweights pretty interesting right now. Right, and those divisions thirty five fifteen's definitely weren't as stacked as fifty five and one seventy but yet you did it, and then you created forty five for one lady all respect, Chris. I've worked amazing athlete one of the best ever. And you had to feature somehow by think it could have just given her the belt and just had a fuck girls up for the next five years, and nobody would add a problem with it. And guess what you were pulling thirty five up to fight her and making that division weaker. So some thirty five are going up the fight cyborg others going down to help fill out one hundred twenty five and those divisions suffered, but they didn't crumble and these divisions are nowhere near as thick as those other ones. Guess what? Use the word dream guess who else has been drained. Tony ferguson. Habib Kevin Lee a lot. Of those aims making wait two point. You know, what I mean feel one of them almost died. So there's there's not just the reason of all we want another bell. That's not the only reason I think it just makes sense. And a lot of knowledgeable people think this. However, he is the guy that makes the final decision. He doesn't seem anywhere near wanting to make a hundred and sixty five and seventy five and it's kind of disappointing. But whatever talking about that a little bit more. We gotta take a break when we come back. We're going to talk to Jim west the head coach at m may gold that team has definitely risen over the last five years fighters like max Griffin Aspen lad, Marin Renault. Andrea Lee, Anthony Hernandez. They are all part of that Jim, and we wanna talk to him a little bit more. He's got a few fighters that are coming up. And we just wanna learn a little bit more about Jim west and don't touch that dial. We'll be right back back on serious. Morning, man. I'm mad dog sports radio. I love baseball. Because it's.

"And don't get bothered by tough fights got as time goes on and tough. I'd say where and you what's an example of somebody maybe from boxing again, or if it's may let me know. But is there ever been a is there ever an example of just like really solid cornering either stopping a beating from continuing or, you know, energizing a fighter to reach their maximum potential. Is there any moment, you can think of in a corner that was just incredibly pivotal and and just. I forget his name. I'm having a brain farm, but it was a few years ago. I had a great performance. He said, you gotta go in the fire like firefighter, Timothy brand speaking, Timothy what what a great job, I wonder, and you know, I always respected teddy atlas as a the cornermen, and he made a great commentator actually learned a lot about poaching by listening teddy and things in the long for the ended say, but that was a great corner just dicey. And he's you know, he's more full-time commentator slash part-time coats. And it just shows, you know, his long by, you know, it's it's it's it's how do you create energy? How do you create more energy? I mean, he was winning type and he knew that there was momentum. And he was able to build that momentum into a just a fireball. And that's what a corners. There to do is. How do you how do you create momentum or shift momentum? And that's always tough to do is have ship. How did you get into someone? Head and make them believe that they can still win the fight. And that's that's again, I just takes time experience, and again philosophy understanding, how the mind works understanding, how your athletes tell you what cornering now when I have three athletes compared to when I was had a team at grudge that, you know, forty professional athletes. Nine different when I was having too many athletes a lot of things that I did failed. According failed of the poach. For instance, I had a aid guy name Alvin Robertson five eight, and they were I did an interview and asked me about how playmates and I'm like, and I like, I don't think that's the point. I missed his appointment adjustments houses appointment, and they're both like fifty five at the time. And that's a big flag went off where I was wearing too many ads. I had too many athletes another time when those lots of Carlos, and you know, I didn't even talked to about five round fight here. She is three professional fights for we'll coming off field the fighter and seeing how boundary issue on the alternate fighter. Even when I wasn't coaching her all the beginning fan, and she went out there and hit this pace. And after the first round I didn't catch onto it. And afterwards, I seen her start to cave and one hundred percent was that. That night fall as a coach of the co pilot to not catch that and not plan to see that I needed to plant for fighter dead only has three five role titled who so young feel. We should have won that fight. If we would have understood the pace and understand the five around five and understood the only way that Carl could beater, you know, I came out of a fan voice last cheerleader, and those are those are part of the reason why I gave up on and said, hey, you know, I went back to Boston where I coached the athlete, and I don't have too many people. Saying the right things because everybody's saying different philosophies. You got so many coaches, you know, coaching you wear internet mindset, but you're going from one workout, and you got three workouts per day and east coast coach is pushing you to the limit here you are over training. So there's just so many different experiences that you go through. It's just how do you? How do you on it and make sure that it's it's balanced, and and again all about the athletes, and also when you have been alluding to this the entire interview, how different your athletes are certainly take some humility on the part of the coach. But it also takes keen awareness to got just engage. He the most exciting dynamic incredible talents and the division still highly ranked begins Edson Barboza. But I don't think it's any kind of controversial statement to say that that's a high risk Cairo..

"Download that app you'll love, and of course, you can stream not just our channel. But other channels. Well, why would you do that? When fight nation Ninety-three has basically twenty four hours of combat sports covered. I know there's the occasional Super Bowl World Series and other stuff you want to get to but ninety three should be locked in as one of your favorites. Now, they're all. Are there are also options? Remember, we have a long history in the sport and our international international audience. Does catch audio archives? The posted hours later, the I two so there, I think I got it all covered. But anyway goes did you see those matchups? Pau pollock. I love nothing better guys than the go on EMI junkie dot com in. My favorite news is a fight, bulky. That's your favorite is. Well. I'm not saying it's dumb or anything. I'm just asking. I mean other. Maybe if one of the ring card girls is releasing per calendar or something sure I'll glance through those pictures. I like most parts mints data announcements. Now, we're going to blah, blah, blah, right? Yeah. I like that too. Specially so Callen Vegas. We're kind of used to. We know what we're getting. You know, we we're getting an end of the year show and international fight week show. A couple of catch me off guard by love nothing more than the kit. Emma, Mejia dot com, and then all of a sudden bam. There's so fight bookings their Paolo consta- versus y'all remarried. You see that one? Yes. In miami. They're going to Miami. They haven't been there in a few years. And then the other one is saw was Edson Barboza versus Justin gage didn't somebody on this show say that they go to Florida was you or a caller that they go to Florida right around that time, and we all kind of went really now, you don't remember that it's like a couple of weeks ago in April. Who is that? It wasn't. It wasn't me. I think it was a caller call. They always go to Florida at the certain time. We all really know. It wasn't wasn't goes, April April. They also have a FOX show and Moskva doll said, I think he. Again, did that he knew of something coming around that way. But but he also wanted to fight till in London. Right. Yeah. So I wonder if I mean that's done, isn't it? Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So you would imagine it's not like they put a cardigan, then try new, and they just didn't do that. I suppose that if when does he ever get the easy road? If that has you know, we have an outcome in that fight. And he's not hurt. He'll probably wanna fight Miami. As well. Imagine that would be about. Roughly eight week turnaround or he could pull it off. He took almost a year off it'll be more than ear by the time. You actually it's been more than a year as of right now. But it'll it will have been probably close to about sixteen months by time. He fights. You shouldn't be taking time off like that. I I know that he got paid and he did Exelon, and he got shape, and he had a great experience. But right now is this time, you know, what? I mean, a lot of those guys they just need to make that that run towards Tyron Woodley because that is a stack division. It is. It's a it's a wrestler division to kind of like the. Kind of like the not a sidetrack. But you know, I think he's Anthony Anthony Pederson, you know, saying he's excited about Walter way. But also realizing you know, he's got teammates up their affiliations. Whether it's asking her Woodley. But also kind of knowing that hey, you know, guys know what waits at the top of that division. Right. Yeah. For sure especially with the addition of aspirin, and you got Comorros ankle becoming thin.

"I mean, he will still remain at the top like his fall would wouldn't be bad is if I if Gus looses I believe this is his third title shot. And it'll just be such a long road to get back at the top. While John Jones is still big name. I mean, if he loses he can it wouldn't be a crazy idea if he would just go, okay? I'm willing up to heaven and get the title shot. Immediately. Would it be crazy at all? But for us in a little little little rougher. So I think. The consequences of Gus losing are greater than than for John fair enough. I could get I so I'm gonna get Ray in the number leave you with this question. Do it. Prove them wrong. Hey, we'll James from New York as as as impressive as Holloway looked on Saturday. Even though I think we're taking on a hype train because I really didn't like the competition that he fought. Can you? Tell me why I'm wrong in thinking that Holloway cannot be six of the top seven guys on fifty five. I honestly think the only chance he has is against Connor. And I just want you to prove me wrong. So prove me wrong. I don't think that Holloway. Does anything at one fifty five proved me wrong? Thanks, buddy. Great show by it's a interesting question. Prove you're wrong. He can only be Connor in the top seven. Well, let's read out who's in the top seven well top six if you're going to include Habib's. So there's a beep Tony Connor Dustin for now. Kevin Lee Edson Barboza in just engage. He well, you know, look, we have to have a degree of humility about this. I'm not miss Cleo. I don't know exactly how he would do. But here's why there's reasons for optimism number one. He hasn't it appears a pretty good chin and one fifty five it would be only more enabled because the way cut would be that much less number two as I've said before what may. Max holloway. So interesting is he takes what they call the basics. But they don't mean basic like a white girl who orders a pumpkin spice latte in October. That's not what they mean by basic what they mean by basic is foundational he has all the foundational elements of striking that he has a down, Pat. And then has built a modular game around it. In other words, are you a kickboxer who likes to fight it rains or you a boxer lex to fight in close? Are you southpaw or you orthodox which way? Do you circle? Do you like to come forward? Do you like to back up? Do you lead you counter strike max can adjust his game in a modular way? He's like an AR fifteen hit to make a gun comparison. But let's just make it an AR fifteen. What makes it so powerful as a lot of different reasons? One is that it's incredibly modular. You can add a lot of different things to it. Scopes, site posts grips all kinds of. Lights, all kinds of different things. You can add to it or subtract from it on the hand guards to make it do a lot of different things..

"I'll go back. He fought a teammate of mine named Rick story. It was one of the best Cowboys I've ever seen. I don't think he got the credit for it. Because I don't think the Rick stories ever got the credit, but cowboy went off suddenly shooting, double eggs, you guys. Remember, the the Patrick coattail fight. You wanna see too great Saronic fight? Go watch. The RIC story fight go watch the Patrico Tae fight. And these went under the radar. These went under the radar because Patrick coattail, then get the respect that he deserves. And Rick story didn't have the respect that he deserves. It wasn't a huge surprise when cowboy one. But if you go back and watch how he won if you go back and washes dynamic kickboxer, all of a sudden. Breaking out double-leg take downs. Go watch the Edson Barboza fight. You will see what I mean? When I talk about you have one of the most fantastic, and polished and all around fighters from the feet to the wrestling to the on bottom and the garden jitsu game one of the most decorated and all around fighters now he's finally getting that credit and why he didn't have the you have C championship around his waist. He now does have you have see records most wins in UFC history. Possibly most finishes something, right? I mean, he crab like two or three records in one night with that win. And I was very happy for him. I really thought that he deserved. I really thought he dealt with some tremendous amounts of pressure. And he did it against a killer. When you watch Mike Perry. Okay. As much as I am gloating on him because I do enjoy him from multiple perspectives. He has the it factor in he brings a personality along with him that here in the entertainment era is the only way you're going to make a living. He has something special. But he's also. Very fun to fight. He's also very mean. And he's also in there for the duration the other side of it. If I'm being fair is he is very limited in his skills in certain positions. It is very clear that he is a diamond in the rough but still rough he is going to need a couple of years. I like that he is at Jackson, wink, I think he is in very good hands. I think that is an appropriate. Jim for him if his lifestyle outside of the ring is good. I don't have any evidence that it's not just offering for you as long as he's not distracted. And he is using that opportunity in Albuquerque to work on his I really think he's with the right guy because I think he could use some of the most basic things I think some of the harder things you can already check off the box in ability to compete a willingness to take shots a lack of fear to stand in there with anybody. I think he has some of the harder points down. But I think some of the more basic points he's going to need to work on. And I don't think it's just going to be in front of our eyes on television. I think he can work out some of those kinks in the room. I have very high hopes personally for Mike Perry. What I can see that. He is rough around certain edges. Okay. Great. So that turns in to a great fight a major relief for cowboy you could see the relief. You could see the celebration. It was a cool moment. It was a cool moment to get to see for somebody else and Mike Perry in defeat. Not for nothing took it wonderfully cut, some great promos stayed fund and everybody wants to see his next fight. There's an art to that guys. That's not me over here. Trying to complement a guy after the fact there's an art either either earns that or he doesn't he there hangs his head and cries in his beer or he follows the old model of don't ever let them see sweat. And that's what Perry did and it works. We all love a night out..

"The crowd, I do not believe for one second to Connor would have been arrested. I'm I just don't. I believe he would have been brought back to the center of the cage. They would've put the belt on them. I believe he would have been talking to sportscenter on a live hit. I believe he would have come to the to the press conference and believe that is part of why things got the way they were. I, I just don't believe the kind of would have been arrested. How to jumped the fence. I believe he has been given a longer leash than anybody else the sport because he is the star that he is. And I think that's part of the problem here at fortunately know the being you think about what happened back in in Brooklyn. I mean, yes. I mean he did face legal repercussions there he did face issues, but the UFC didn't do anything. They just said, well, we let the let the the legal system do its thing, and that was that. And I think that's what most people are frustrated about right now is they're saying, hey, listen, you know, why are you going to take issue with what he did if you didn't take issue with what Connor did is that the line John as that the worst we will ever see Connor do we have to figure out where that line is because the more money makes the more power he's gonna. Have my question is, is that the line God, I hope so, man because I will say, I mean, I know that it's it's it's six months ago Runamuck every time right through that day, that day in Brooklyn felt so awful. Man. I just remember thinking, good Lord. This is the biggest star in our sport. This is the one that everybody pays attention to, and he's acting like it's just a calm. In hoodlum. You know what in the f. is going on. I remember I, I mean, and now it's just it just ended up being, you know, fight from one more thing about coach, Tony, because he say, listen every day. So hopefully you're watching right now next call. If you do not blow a whistle at the end of your call, I will beat out fat, and I've heard that should be your thing that's to that's caller Kevin in Chicago, what's up Kevin. So I was listening to interview with Jordan Johnson. I don't know if you're familiar with him. He's going off to impress win and Russia against the Chechen undefeated Chechen. And it sounds like US's not too keen on bringing them back. It sounds like they're not really. They don't want to give him. The money is worked and there's there are right with leading them go. I think this is kinda the problem. They hate to harp on the wrestling issue, but it just keeps coming back in coming back and bringing it itself is he's a wrestler and that you have you don't want to get behind rush lers. So they're just perfectly fine with letting them go. But with guy like Dan Hooker, he was ranked like fifteenth and all of a sudden he's gonna jump up to the number six on face Edson Barboza you can see the, you'll see giving him a big push. Whereas Gregor Gillespie, he's undefeated and he's like four or five. And on the u. of c. worse, his big push UFC's just don't want to get behind the rush lers. And for the I'm a may. Journalists who don't want to say anything. He always Senator tain -ment. The fans, they wanna see excitement. You're never going to be respected as a real sport. If you keep that attitude up, you can start treating as a real sport and look at it as a check of sport, not.

"RDA at UFC on FOX eleven. So that's failed jobs. Michael Johnson at UFC two. Oh five. That's in New York few years. Edson Barboza at u. of c. to nineteen. Also New York a few years ago or last year or Al Iaquinta also New York, but not the city. It was in Brooklyn UFC two, twenty three. So those four choices for the most impressive victory for Habib number made off Dan, Tom leadoff I gotta say for me, it's Barbosa. I like the hot file does on Joost win. I think that I haven't seen the poll results. I got imagine that going to do really well, but that's like almost five years old four and a half years old somewhere around that neighborhood. And I would argue the different version of both men whereas up better. Yeah, and Barbosa. Yeah, he may have lost this fight out for that. The Kevin Lebed. It was another tough stylistic matchup in Barbosa showed in both those fights hitting spin kicks late in the fight that you know, he's not no easy pushover just because he hasn't doesn't have a UFC belt under his resume, but I'll go with ED's and Barbosa. All right. How about you goes, you know, early on, I, I had leaned actually towards Aliquippa Quinta just because of everything that went on before. For that and just being able to get through it and still be him right. But I think I'm going to end up at RDA just because it was a pretty pretty good and complete solid fighter that he just dismantled. You almost change my mind. I also liked Barboza, but you know, I quit. I use this term a lot because we're in a Campbell in town. We're in Las Vegas house money. Let me define what that means verse. When when you hear people say including me and others, it's basically when you're winning and you're up and it's like you can have more fun because the house page, they paid you some money. So hey, things you normally wouldn't do you do? I feel like I was kind of playing with house money because he's on like fulltime into the sport. You know, he's got the the real estate thing going on. And yeah, he bickered with the obscene, but he got it. The money that he wanted. Then he goes out there and is is Sanchez a few years ago comes back and I feel like he's got nothing to lose. So he was so relaxed going in your right Habib went in there thinking, I Tony, then max, then I guess they gave him a bunch of names. Felder was thrown in. There says he has a case for why it should have been him or could have been him had he not been cut, you know, and then the come out there and still. Perform well against. I acquit to while having a bunch of other things on his mind including Conor McGregor. And that was pretty damn impressive with with Barbosa. I love I are. love are both. Probably the highest ranked name, I guess, because RDA's seventy now, but Barboza had success towards the end. He wasn't many battles while losing the war. So I was going to save our both that I think I'm gonna go with Iaquinta because he just went through so much and he did capture the title and what sucked is he didn't get the beat the prior champion, which was Connor because it was basically a vacant title. Even the interim was out of the picture at that point. So I'm gonna side with that, but goes you and iron the big time minority. And I didn't understand that the results came. They agreed with Dan, Tom. And also I did met RDA. He came in second Barbosa at fifty, seven percent for UFC two nineteen. Dan, Tom RDA who'd you hear about those Burgos. Okay. You threw me off, you know, because he, he had said he imagined RDA. It was like the last couple of days have been really made us think we did have to think a little bit here. So RDA came in second place at twenty eight percent. Okay. You've seen on FOX eleven kudos to the fans for remembering that one, Michael Johnson at twelve percent, Michael Johnson hurdle. He heard a man. He you know, he's speed. Keep that in mind this weekend, and he came in at twelve percent. You've see to five I to at three percent..

"Then once he gets the cage, you have chains and if you can defend those chains, remember Michael Johnson was able to defend some after he got taken down and beat up. Edson Barboza was able to defend some. We all remember all he was beaten Barbosa. So bad look at if you look at that third round, but both actually made a good account for himself. You Actually Defense to take down solitaire start around, and I dare say Conor may have as good take down defense of our Bosa. And I will say that I think Conor has better take down to fence Michael Johnson, which. Sounds crazy because Michael Johnson always athletes and all this stuff, which is true, or do you get that from the. I just I was I was out for us is fight. And then also just looking at Michael Johnson's last night which I watched yesterday on Elkins. But where do you like to take down the fence of Gruber against against did have somebody Alvarez Alvarez makes money off. Mendez taken down easy. But then again, there was rumors that he was hurt. So yeah, the question for Ford whose calls dragging on by the way. This guy just won't. Ford. I know you love your kids. Faira was the boy's name again. I always crock. Okay year sitting next to this crazy man, and he put the gun to your head when you left home, you gotta you gotta take it. All right. Somebody scored a ticket and when you lived home, you rub Brock on the head and said, hey, boy, I'll be back and he told fair, keep an eye. And you know, he said, I'll be home after the fights. When you get to the fight, somebody pulls the hood over your head and drives you somewhere else. These some maniac. He just comes up with shit like that thing, Dennis hopper and speed just crazy. And then he puts the gun to your head and says, do you wanna see rock and fair again, will this main events about the start? Tell me who wins you go home, you get it wrong, you lose, don't fuck in life or tell the truth. All day long. Nothing. We'll sit. I'm talking to. They go away. I'm telling you, see now picture now picture on Ford fighting Dennis hopper top train over this answer hopefully does better than counter REEs because again, Dennis hopper another one of those old guys with ridiculous strengthen the move. How is he holding up with the lead? You know, kinda like Tom Cruise mission, impossible. Another top of the train fight seeing how are these guys so strong when they get to the top of moving trains. Sorry. There's one thing in that breakdown hold, very valuable didn't here. It's just the mental warfare Connors, not gonna play that game. I mean, he's not gonna. Pay came, Tony Ferguson would get caught up in that. That's. Connors is getting people well frazzled, and it's just not going to work on. And I think when it doesn't work, it's when it frazzled Connor. Well, we'll see. Luckily, this fights less than two months away. Knock on wood. We get there because this fight card cannot. I'm sorry to say it, but it cannot sustain. Something happening to the main event. It's not deeper, went over this with my man, Sean Lennon from the fight Lee report yesterday. I was a guest on his show. And yeah, we got some Derek Lewis and Volkov and a few other car fights on the card that that are actually fly. But I'm telling you the UC would have been better served to have Dustin versus. Nate Diaz on this card. And the reason is because of God forbid, something happened to be Connor in NATO, poi- here's here's some money. We'll see in a couple of months kid, but these two got to settle the trilogy and it's still fights. Everyone's happy people that paid twenty five hundred or whatever the people at home that are gonna pay for this paper view because you're getting Nate. He's calling for three. And if something happens to the other party which is McGregor, you'll poi- you deserved it anyway. Step aside, boy, here's some money. You go in there and the could write those checks to those guys even without fighting because this is the thing sold out. It's going to be a huge at the gate on the paper us, but I love that insurance policy for these fans, and it sounded like Nate wanted to be a part of that. It's, yeah..
