"Gsp those are the only three letters that should be thrown out in front of ebner mark meadows. He earned that. I don't wanna hear that. Conor mcgregor and dust employ both of them Kabaeva has beaten badly. He submitted both of them rear naked. Choke destroy them dominated. Them kabaeva has no need to fight. Either them o'connor wants his vengeance. He wants his rematch. She needs to write another netflix's Bullcrap there's only one reason why conor mcgregor and during want that fight to happen is money could be about. Honor is about respect. He's about the purity of mma and in my opinion. now i'll lose a lotta respect if he does but in my opinion. I don't believe he's gonna fight conor mcgregor again. Because he beat the bully. He beat the guy who is disrespectful. Who was borderline racist who talk crap about. His country is religion and his father. He beat him down. There's no reason to go back down. That bassey wrote conor mcgregor man. The only reason why he'd wanna fight could even rematch obviously used to win and to change that loss to victory. But because the money that would be the high self-identity history the the original fight so two point four million pay per views the rematch. Now completely on the espn platform would be very close to three million pay per view buys. That's the only reason why. Dana white's pushing this narrative my opinion. Gst verse could be the only fight that matters. And i'm not gonna lie. If that were to happen. I would be one of those three million fires. I would violate by that fight. Yeah and i would have to watch you to 'cause then i would have to recap it on your wonderful show. Brother got your show to do tim. That's true that's true. Some big things in the work to some big things. Work any anything that you can tell us or or can keep it a secret. Well just say fighter who resides in the county of nassau is potentially on board with your boy i so we will see if it comes to fruition. I'm trying to will it into existence and if it happens if the A big thanks to your brother. So we'll see what happens. And obviously i'll keep you and your audience and that that is certainly big news and i hope whatever it is does come to fruition if the rumored so big room right..

"Coming for him. Max holloway had every reason in the world to pout not show up for or even on the other side of that just kinda ease his way to victory noman. I don't think we should underestimate the savagery that we saw last night. If fax plus holloway. There's so that he said that was actually very interesting to me that he didn't spark for this fight. You went in terms of his training. Can't where you'd said. And i'm paraphrasing. You got one brain cherish eight. Do you think you're going to see more fighters start doing that. Where they won't leading up to their fights. Yeah it's not the first time. I've heard that tony ferguson has inspired in a couple of years donald cowboys. Rone's stop for a while now if you have the the tools and the skill and you just need to sharp it with a couple of tad work or maybe a light touch and go session with some pads. You don't need to go to war every single week once a week. Just get bloodied up for no reason your head gets all buzzed around from the punching Even though there's headgear and there's thicker gloves and practice. I mean then. Your call was on the broadcast last night he was like i don't necessarily agree with the no sparring maybe I don't know if you just watch the highlights or you're tuned in from the start to the finish but he made a point that oh max's face is getting bruised easy Maybe this is dude. A hand not sparring but quickly dan hardy a former. Ufc title-challenger against george gear who was also on the broadcast side by side with daniel. Corey said no. I if you have the skill is you have the confidence especially like maximally. Maybe you don't need as far. Maybe it's just the skills in there and you just first time you get hit in the fight and you're done it twenty thirty times in your career. Maybe you don't need to waste of miles or waste of waste of miles on your engine before the fight. Save everything up for the fight. So i agree. There should be more fighters practice in this. No spar longevity the keys fighting games in my opinion. That's absolutely true as we're talking with feldman here So one of the big things from yesterday was dana white. Talking with lightweight. Champion could be near maggie made of one of the big quotes. That got me was. Show me something spectacular. Make me fight again. That coming from new magomadov. Do you think he's actually gonna fight again. Fifty fifty fifty fifty. This has been It's annoyed me. It's kinda tease me. It's frustrated me but ultimately still still has my attention be twenty nine zero one of the greatest fighters of all time. I believe he's only lost one round in his career which was to conor mcgregor back. Uc to twenty nine He's undefeated and the ufc. Obviously he's the most dominant fighter in. Ufc history though. He's a wrestler and a grappler and i maybe pooh-poohed wrestlers and grapplers were listened to the show. Because i hinted that max holloway wasn't born because he did not wrestle could be is one of those grapplers who is not borne. You have to tune in to see him fight because you just wanna see how he's going to dominate his opponent and an opponent that i would love to see him fight and maybe dominates. Maybe he doesn't is george saint-pierre..

tony ferguson daniel Corey Max holloway one round george saint-pierre max holloway yesterday twenty thirty times last night twenty ufc first time feldman dana white twenty nine holloway Ufc once a week one

"Toss at this point and so when he does come back to play knowing that management was with with the party do we. Do you think we're gonna see more motivated kyrie or do you think we're gonna using the opposite of that. I think the first step is making sure that you get kyrie irving back now. You know that. That's that's the first question is is he coming back. And when did you come back. But you know if we're going gonna speak on that yet when he comes back. I i don't really know you know. I don't know if we're going to see a motivated. Kyri I don't know if we're gonna see him. You know what his attitude is going to be like because now he's he's the ringo starr of the of the of the bunch right. Now you have kevin durant. You're james harden and kyrie is going to have to take a back seat to that and i don't know if that's going to affect his players he's gonna buy in and again when i mentioned unresolved issues for the this one of them. I mean it looks great. They have the most dominant big three in nba. But you know a large part of that is is how kyri irving react to all of this you know and does the impact can eat. Never been a third star team. He's he's always had the rains whether he was the number. One guy or the number two guy So big thing is going to beat you. What is his attitude like. Is he motivated or is he. You know kind of moping around and and the first step andy again like i mentioned is getting him back in that locker because nobody knows if he's playing or not you know it's very much still a coin toss so we'll see what happens so so with let's say for argument's sake everything's on the level kyri comes back and is playing like the kyri. Everybody expects him to be. Ken durant hardened irving coexist together with their styles of play. Sorry episode a all right so it's assuming that everything's on the level. Kyri comes back and plays to the level that everybody expects them to kevin durant harden irving coexist together with their styles of play..

Mark Jackson is the reason why Mark Jackson isn’t an NBA head coach

Dual Threat with Ryen Russillo

Mark Jackson is the reason why Mark Jackson isn’t an NBA head coach

"Joe. Lake. Up after mark was let go had a bunch of quotes This was one of them that I found co part of it was that he couldn't get along with anybody else in the organization and look you did a great job. I'll always compliment him mini respects but you. Can't have two hundred people in the organization, not like you. Okay. and he said when I say the organizations whole I don't just mean the team just fifteen players that are involved in the coaching staff I mean everybody there's two hundred employees here. So we look at the organization going forward and the kind of coach we want and not just the performance everything else all these factors matter. We took all of that into account. So we have the player part of it. We have the owner part of it. We knew the front office didn't like him when one of the assistance. was busted for recording Jackson in meetings to play for the front office, which again that actually becomes a pro mark Jackson part of it. The Mark Jackson staff was not good enough the ownership in front office told him repeatedly, the staff is good. Enough Mark said we have the best staff going he and scalping apparently got into it and scalloping he was reassigned the front office didn't like that part of it. So we have the players have the staff we have the ownership we have the front office. Let's also talk about some of the other stuff that's just let's face it. Weird Jackson's Amana Faith I. Don't question anyone's faith. I just say to you leave me alone and I'll do my thing That's the way I've always operated and that rubs people wrong way when he was a head coach but also would find time to get to La whenever he had a convenient off day to go and do that. It's tough to tell a man of faith. Hey, you know what don't be that interested in God? That's that's an almost impossible conversation but if I was at ESPN or anywhere and said, Hey, you know what? I can't watch football this weekend. Because I have this higher calling eventually it worked they'd be like, Hey, you know what? Man Like this is all part of the job being availalbe around is very difficult in tough thing to navigate as I'm not even hundred percent comfortable doing it but I'd have to say employer at the time being frustrated by it actually makes a little bit of sense and I think there's other things that just bumped people out when curry had his ankle issues he was brought up in it was kind of a playful thing curry's brought up they put the holy oil on his ankle and. Jackson's wife at the time and Pete Jackson was like look like he had chronic ankle problems and now he doesn't. So you figure it out. That's one of those things where people like wait what Jackson also had some issues off the core where he was caught up extortion deal and I'm not even really getting on his case for that because I think a lot of things happen to people that are public figures that goes on normal people's lives. But the public figure becomes the of jokes on and on and on. He also said when asked about Jason Collins availability years ago. He said not in my locker room. So it came off as if he was a homophobe because there's evidence that he is, and then when he was asked to clear that up, he said look I know Jas I know his family and I'm praying for them right now. Hey, man you save your fucking prayers. Okay. That's the kind of stuff that just doesn't play no matter who you are and I think the. Most important part of all of this because I guess I'm still maybe a little surprised that he doesn't have a job because other people have been on TV and not been great on. TV. I've looked at other coaches that haven't had great runs and there's been plenty of people that have gotten second chances by the way both black and white. So when I see people out raged that he's been blackballed or as. Shannon Sharpe said White Bald or Kendrick Perkins recently, just saying like all of these things that I just going off on the idea that Mark Jackson doesn't have job it really feels like, okay. Are you informed and but yet you've made up your mind decided not to change your mind or are you uninformed and I think so many people screaming about this or like Oh wait that's right. You know maybe either moments you had just now listening to this like Oh, that's right. I've nothing personal against Mark Jackson. He's one of my favorite college basketball players of all time all-time. You guys know how huge of a Saint John's Fan I am and I actually was you know as a little kid be like dude I can't believe he's going this late in the draft is GonNa be awesome and he was awesome in the knicks I felt so vindicated I was. Like and I could refer team right one day I love Mark Jackson and I was right. But when I listened to him on the broadcast Van Gundy I, think him being on the broadcast Van Gundy chances of getting a job because if I was worth a half a billion dollars or more and had the opportunity to own a team or owned a team right now and I'd go. Van Gundy's on all of these little things like, Hey, look at how they blind me Anthony Davis on free throws already have them on the other side of the court. So he can seal for Deepak smaller offender will there be an adjustment. Hey, what's going on with the substitution? Hey, this rule's actually wrong. Why are they doing it? This Way Jeff Van Gundy will say, here's Hey Jason tatum something's wrong with him. He's the first pointed out it happens multiple times every single broadcast Jeff Van Gundy is easily the best NBA analyst in the game right now. Mark doesn't do any of those things and I. Don't know if that's just him not being comfortable in that role but he's a coach. He's a former player and he doesn't do any of those things. He'll say, Hey, this guy's not just a great score. He's a great individual. He's a human being. Okay. So and so doesn't get enough credit for shooting. Okay. In everything is results based. If the shot goes in, it was a great shot at the shot doesn't go in Hey, that's the guy that shouldn't be taking the shot. It's very. It's very minimal depth and when. You have people that make these decisions. You're almost instead of looking at the resume in Golden State which is on its surface again resume. You'd say Yeah. What like six years? Nicholas gives Scott his shot young team garnered play defense that's hard to do. But I think being next to Jeff. When Jeff runs circles around him on the broadcast. It it might remind go wait why why is this one guy way better talking about the game than the other guy so I think the best thing market do would not be on the broadcast with Jeff and who knows what might happen. So I just think the more we look at it and hey man trust me this is not white guy decide to push back on racism segment because I've. Probably done with those the rest of my life. I'm seeing specific to this one because the NCAA numbers are atrocious. The ABC's the head coaching. Diversity that we have in the pro sports leagues still is not what it needs to be I'm not pushing back on any of those things. But when it comes specific to mark Jackson, there are the informed in the uninformed, and hopefully if you've resisted this, you're more informed now.

I mean, he is suiting up for his sixth team in eight years. So if you don't know this guy that's understandable, especially considering he's never hit over 2. 65 never made no star team never played more than 80 games in a season since 2017. I mean, why would you know him, however. Here is why the journeyman ST Louis Cardinals infielder deserves a committed place in your mind. Here's why you should know him. The numbers do not tell the entire story. His nickname, however, does and his nickname is wait for it. Rat. Find me a better handle. Find me a better nickname. Such great loss.

UFC featherweight champ defends title in split decision

"I Will Fight Island was officially christened tonight for the UFC in Abu. Dhabi there was no baptism to be had in the main event of UFC two fifty one. What's going on everybody? Welcome to the official. You have to fifty one post fight. Show here on, May, finding dot com I'm Mike Heck location this week from Boston Massachusetts visiting the parents this weekend. That is Jose Jose. Main Event Kamara, who's been retains a welterweight title against Whore Mazal. Challenger looked pretty darn good in that first round. I'm pretty surprised that judges gave in that first round, but it was the much fresher champion that was able to sort of chip away at the always game, or hey mazda throughout the fire Ab. Fresher champion but Komo. Zeman was basically been in camps since beginning of this year, despite was like Ben Booked and booked in both supposed to fight earlier this by giving burns, and also muzzle steps in, so yes, he's finally fresher because he he's had the full camp and everything but I think Kamara wasn't one hundred percent in that fight, either considering this long extended, Feick at Ala, similar to twenty Ferguson with all these these these fights falling apart, but Kamara who's been one nonetheless, might not have been the most exciting fight. I saw a couple of tweets complaining about the fight and I really take that. I felt it was a lot of fans that were on this very muzzle hype train. He's on the video game cover on this baptism round the resurrection Super Necessary Punches bef tile, and that they were expecting violence, even mice I myself said fight between WHO's minimize well probably has a higher chance of ending in a violent way, but it did not come out who's been one I had them winning all five rounds the first round I guess. Didn't really matter to me. Who won that? I still come who's been what at least four of the rounds comfortably? The people complain about. The foot stopped the wrestling the headbutts. That stuff will come out. Who's been did what he had to do to win. That's exactly why I thought he would. Take, her might as well because all the time Mazal taking this fight on short notice. Kamara also took this fire. On short notice gets an extra a completely different fighter between Gilbert Burns as well. It's completely rechange leftist camp Had his new trevor wittman is corn for the first time fighting the guy all this bad blood is in the air all the pressures on him, and perform a like we ourselves, said all the pressures on who's Madonna not not a whole lot on Mazal, but at the end of the day. Who's been doing what he had to do? I didn't have a problem with the way fought. Might not have been the most exciting, but if I was going to pick up, predict away whose men would pull this off. This is exactly how I thought he would do it. Yeah, when you get a fight like this and you have a guy as hot as MAS. Bat brings in a lot of the casual fan base. Does your watch? As many events as we watch, and some of the hardcore fans watch everything so most people expected this fight to go exactly that way I thought the first row was going to be the most interesting round, obviously, because of Mazda was going to get it done. He's probably going to have to do it in the first five minutes, and this is the fire. We got like Mara. Who's been defends his title. For the second time. It was another classic who's been like performance and he gets a one-sided win and highly anticipated main event so in the end. We like to talk about the overall letter grade, but it felt like just kind of looking at the time slot when we're all said and done. We're getting ready to hit record here. We're just like man this is this is super late like I feel like the card and the whole night in a weird way. Wet Kinda slow did it not. started off really really quickly. Might just. Like I feel like the first few flew by and all of a sudden I had been watching fights for two and a half three hours and I'm like wow, this fight is cars going quickly I like this pace, and then we the main card and Amanda he boss comes in, and just submits patriots immediately i. wish went exactly as I expected, but then there was decision with Rosen on drugs, and then even Yawn Aldo finish, but it was in the fifth round, so there's still basically fought for twenty five minutes, and then we get twenty five minutes, Vulcanology Holloway and then we get twenty five minutes of in Mazda, also of these we've seen. We saw that graphic on the screen like. All the cards are three title fights, and like we used to fourteen had like Woodley Maya in Jones, a cormet and Cyborg Abinger, and then to seventeen to five those had some bangers like like two to seventeen had three epic fights three like violent, like just three of the craziest finishes you'll see. And then, of course to a five, the CONOR McGregor show, and then to seventeen had the DC Jones trilogy, so I think we're a little maybe. We'll. We'll spoiled on these three. These three title fight cars while we're expecting something like that and I loved all all great fights off spectacular fights, but I think a lot of fans are tuning in to see fight island. In the Mazar strain, all these title-fights might have been. A limited. I could see why they might have been little disappointed. I didn't have a problem with it, but probably was the night Dana White wanted in terms of finishes. Yeah, the main event may have disappointed some people but for. The Sake, this is like the best thing that could have happened for the welterweight division like if you're burns. Edwards these guys are pretty happy right now. Especially Gilbert Burns. One hundred percent I mean we. We set it on count after it was on what the heck or or post eyesore produce. All kind of blend together at this point in the summer, but we. We said if Moslem Dole wins. That's going to be a problem for the US's pockets the welterweight division I mean. We were talking about him fighting the bringing the both belts so that the Conor McGregor. The table and all this. Kamara who's been one and it's? It's a no brainer that Gobert burn gets three matches. Suppose he should've been fighting tonight. before covid nineteen October, nineteen. That's applaud the car, so yeah, for all the way division, and the the the martial art fans of the world that don't like quote unquote. Holding divisions I think that's a good thing, but I. Honestly I love chaos at Moscow had one I. Think I, think it would have been fun time in the world of May. And Mazda all. Let's be clear. We all know this. He was the a side heading into this fight. He's the reason. There was a lot of buzz and a lot of fanfare when you had a guy like game bread in the street that he's on. That's what happens, but a lot of people wanNA know where he goes from here. Because despite losing the fight tonight, he still has a ton of options moving forward. Chaos can still rain in some way Jose. Can you say that again? You cut off quick second. Chaos can rain. For horny Mas at all got about it because he's got so many options moving forward despite the loss tonight. Yeah, I mean Hoy Mazdas. All I'm Kamara. WHO's been himself set like he's GonNa. He's like. He's like he's GonNa. Lose all these like excuses. Bill didn't talk the finance days notice flu costs. The country doesn't have was coach in the gym, covert nineteen this and that so like I. Don't think I of course I think Mazda obviously cooled anytime. You lose. You cool a little bit Conor McGregor and Nadir's, and it's such an insane finish that they run it back, and you have another epic fight like that, but for Mazda all you're obviously going to a little bit but he himself said. Let me, get a couple of wins and they'll run back. I'm sure he want. He would love to five full camp but the Colby College. Is there I? Think that is going to drum up a whole lot of interest I. think people might even be more interested in that fight in the dynamic between those two fires, oarsmen and I think that Kobe Covington already Moslems? Fight does not need a title online. That's just two guys. They hate each other I wanNA break brick on each other's faces. WHO'S MCCANN? Fight Gillard.

"fight island" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP

"Tonight we are previewing UFC 2 51 I'm excited for the fights tomorrow. I think the spectacle around these fights has been built Mainly because of this concept of fight Island. They go to Abu Dhabi. Have the fights. They're flying there. Then they're quarantining there all the different Kobe 19 tests, it adds to the theatre of what is going on. Whether or not they actually need to go to a fight island to accomplish this, I think is a whole different story. Look, a lot of things were unnecessary. But if you Congar Toe island and have a fight island Why not? I would, would you? Yeah, it's certainly out of the super villain playbook. The first thing you do if you're super villain is you buy an island and then you create a fight Island. I think he's just renting space. I think Dana White is just renting space on this island. But think about it. Like the idea of going to a music festival on an island sounds amazing. Perhaps if you had some good artists coming along, right? Ahh. Yeah, And then like you struck shirt like those those artists were probably a list artist, right? Yeah, they were. Yeah. I mean, a minus sure, like Rule. No, you just organized. I believe Bling 22 Harris chose to play the fire festival is what you're going to. You're saying fight Island's going to be the fire festival. This's so far, people joked. And people, said UFC. I don't know. I don't know if they'll be ableto pull this off and so far Every week. They've been putting on fights with no problems, you positive test, but then they quarantine they isolate the do everything properly and It's been going on, and it's been going on smoothly so far that the show must go on is Dana White has been saying all of our coverage of UFC 2 51 tonight is brought to you by body armor. You can get body armor at 7 11 You could buy.

"Island becomes a reality. Well, I guess it's already a reality. But there will actually be fights there, and it's actually Gosh! Maybe one of the best certainly form in my opinion, the best card they've had since they've come back the UFC But really good card. A lot of big names. And then, of course, the main event of the evening is a fight that Probably should have been on the card anyway. What We ended up plucking out, I suppose. With Moscow it all being put in against Guzman. So I wantto talk a little UFC 2 51 Maybe Look at some of these potential wagers and get Ah Someone who used to frequent this show. It needs to come on on Maura, and that's on me. Scott Kanevsky joins me now, Scott. Good to catch up, man. How are you? I feel like a first time long time been awhile. It has been a long time. And how are you? How's the family? How's everything going doing well, and I appreciate you having me on thinking about me and things were going well, and things are only gonna get better tomorrow night. Yeah, absolutely. Did you laugh at Dana White when he said when he first brought up Fight Island? Yes. And no. Because you know you crazy enough that he was probably speaking the truth. You figured, you know, maybe he has something going and he's crazy enough and has the money the backing toe pull something off like that, And sure enough, here we are. I mentioned at the beginning How good this card in is and it's not just mustered all versus Guzman by it. Man. Did we luck out? Right? I mean, my you know, I feel bad for the dude who had to pull out and it doesn't get a fight Guzman tomorrow but as a card, it's so much better now that master dolls on it, don't you think? Agreed. Gilbert Burn, We'll get another shot at some point. I mean, hopefully next in line for whoever wins tomorrow night. But this is a fight Everybody wanted. You know, already. Mas Vidal inducement aren't exactly the best of friends. They've been talking for a while. They had that the altercation back in the states. It was Super Bowl on radio row. So this is something everyone's been wanting to see. And now with Byrnes Contracting Cove it we're going to get it on. I think that's just made a already really intriguing AA fight cars that much better. Now I got burned by Justin GHT because I was all in on Tony Ferguson in that fight like it's not gonna happen. It's not gonna happen twice, right? I mean hospital is not gonna win. This thing is he Okay. From a mm a standpoint, I have to say no. And I would agree with you. But if you're going to talk, betting going all in and you've seen what's happened over the last 24 36 hours. Money is just money and tickets are pouring in on Mas Vidal. He's he's gone from about a plus 2 25 plus 35 to a plus 1 85 last I saw earlier today. I believe there would be MGM believe put out there that they're taken 81 ticket being booked for Mas Vidal. And you know, you know what they say. You gotta follow the money. So it just Somebody knows something, or is it just It's obviously not just big bets that are coming in on Mas Vidal, but there's no number of that's coming on him. And that just makes you wonder if someone I'll be just like you know where agree like you. It was all set up for Tony Tow. Go in there and handle him and take him to the ground and didn't but You know, maybe he'll learn from that. Now. What's what's mobs but all going to be able to do to be Guzman. That's the big question. You know, he's better on the feet, obviously, but you know who's going to try and take him down and out wrestling? So How? How does Ma's little battle that and managed to Ah, toe? Hold him off? I don't know. I think I'm right there with you. And I just looked at Fanduel and they have mustered all that plus 200 right now. So even though that's a little bit longer odds, then maybe MGM has that still down as you said Scott from 2 25 or something like that just a couple of days ago, and I guess oh, so let me ask you this if we do the betting thing I I have Guzman minus 2 45 or mosque it all plus 200 Or and then of course, you could get into it. Um, I took in my parlay. I took Guzman just straight up because I got enough other stuff in my parlay that I'm going to get pretty good odds out of it. But if you were laying down, Abed, would you would you do it smarter, Would you Dumas fit all Okay, so I would I would wait until about 15 to 30 minutes before fight and see where those odds are because of who's come down to, like, minus 200. I think you jump on him because they're getting more value for him. And firstly, I think he does come through with the wind, and he's just going to grind it out. But if that money starts about bounce backto mas Vidal, you know, I think, and you're looking to take a shot. You're willing, you know, maybe you had a good night on the earlier fight. Maybe maybe you going on and on and you take that shot. Just hope he comes with that flying me. He landed on aspirin

"We thought we'd switch some things up this show because. Planes Right Adam. It's time for fight island UFC debut on Saturday night in the island, and we're able to speak with president. Dana White earlier in the week, which was very cool, but Adam, you were the preeminent expert anime I don't know the difference between an arm bar. Choke chokehold so it's going. Off. Not So. Sure I pretty much just look over you and say what's he doing at? This were on deadline so i. just write whatever they say, so. You could really make me look like an idiot by saying. That's more bay. Take Down, and instead of a choke blabbity and you're like Whoa. Okay, that's awesome bobby. Dobbs? Our good is back in Grade Blob a Blob Peter Song right to the ground. You, so you know this new. You've written a lot about five island by the way you know a little pitchy Adam and I will have a package and Saturday's review journal on the Fight Island with a lot of Dana white stuff, but tell people really quick again. What is fight island? Where is it? And why did they do? This was a mythical location that everybody's very intrigued about and fired up about and I think people pictured like. Just a just a little area cleared out surrounded by pitchforks, and you know Tiki, torches and Tom Hanks and volleyball. Everybody was envisioning. Just a you know lined by palm trees. You could like throw. People off of them are some craziness. With the the locals coming out and There's some craziness. There now. Doing! It's not the case so basically. The is running events with no fans here in Las Vegas at the apex enter. They did a couple in Jacksonville also This is something that they've been doing and they're. They're comfortable doing it, but they've got a lot of international fighters that just can't get into the country right now. For whatever reason so they decided. You know what we need to find a place internationally where we can get is in and out the the vision that anyway talked about back in April was as you said an island somewhere now they founded I. Guess Yas Island Dhabi where they've done fights before. That island, it's not like a new island like an old island the. was. It was much more marketing than anything else in the end. They secure this location once again which they have a deal to every year and I would Dhabi anyway, so not really this. Is Cool I thought it was going to be well? It kind of is if you actually look at the property like it's just a couple of hotels. A couple restaurants surrounded by a formula one racetrack, which everybody posting videos that they can't sleep because the Formula One, cars are just driving around on their driving around all night. It's so weird, and then it's like a hundred and forty degrees. They did build octagon on the beach so lake be cool, but that's not where they're fighting. That's a training. Oh, they're not. Where are they fighting insights a little reema? There's air conditioning. It's a normal venue. So! It's not as crazy in the seems like a High School Gym Barstool at this point I mean I thought it was going to. Exotic like plays with captain, stooping like crazy people from the past on islands and stuff. This isn't happening. No, there's definitely no out of fight with. Her vase villages look. Like he's not fighting. Tattoo to Mr Roy okay now. You're all I knew that I don't even know. It's her village I dunno chase US kind of unlimited. Play I. Don't know much about the show other than that, but yeah, it's not like that the cage on the beaches for practice. Nobody's using it. It's a hundred and thirty degrees out there. It's just for show Texas. No I'm absolutely serious. Because Peter, who played on game of thrones, forget about it. Tyrian Lan- Lancaster. He Played Tattoo a movie and one thing he came with guy got a lot of hot women in the move to spray so. They tied to tell the King. He had a bunch of hot women after the guys like he was a small as me. How could that be? I think her did well from a failure buying into the movie, instead of the actual real life, I'm sure there was a lot of misery and disappointment to. His size out there. A very full life that poor kid. I can, I'll take your word for it. I never saw the movie. We're going to get the Dana White. Is probably a good transition stain in the island theme, so adamant I able to Dana earlier this week, and it was cool talking about five island. Everything's gone wrong with the US and Adam had a great question. You know first of all. How did they pull this off? Why has been able to hold these fights not only here in Las. Vegas and Covid nineteen. Where other sports are struggling, just getting this stuff off the ground. Here's what Dana says. Food. This whole thing from Merida Vegas. Fight Island but It's always onto the next onto the next onto the next. I'm telling you guys the bigger problem that these other sports have. Is Financial. It's it's the financial side of it because. If you look at the NFL as A. Or the NBA. Own Major League Baseball. Television deals are massive right math of deals, but As, you go owner to owner. You know Nokia there. No parking, no concessions and no live gate. Huge it's huge to the voters. So. One Guy makes the decision over here. UC President Dana White talking earlier this week. let me ask you then the they point. They pulled it off. We'll talk about a minute, but to this point I think they pulled out probably a lot better than people thought I mean. I was described white as notre. Dame of the cowboys. There's no middle ground commuter like me. You don't and right when he said they were GonNa do this. Obviously, the people don't like him said you'll never pulled off. You're never GONNA do it. It. There's hundreds of positives. Are You surprised? They've done at least essentially publicly this well with all of this in terms of the testing pulling these things off. No, because I do think you know the bubble concept is the way to have sports right now. They kind of figure that out early, and by the way I've been there through I was in Jacksonville at the fights here in Vegas I'm not over in Abu Dhabi. Obviously but I am talking to enough people that are. Are there like it is getting better every time and plus you've you've got some oversight and Florida. There was none and they did wherever they wanted Nevada. There was a really good some really good oversight. And I thought the process got a lot better than in Abu, Dhabi like the government is helping. Run all of this and it's insane all the protocols that are place there so I'm not surprised able to do it. And as he said he mentioned it there. It's one guy. Guy He says this is what we're doing and they do it in the other sports don't have the luxury Roger. Goodell caters be like here's what we're doing. Because there's a players union, there's owners. There's all these other all these other sides, so they had a massive advantage in terms of the logistics of pulling these things off for sure, because there's no, there's no real fight back, and you can just put these out there and say hey. We're having a card where if I? If you WANNA fight you fight if you don't which is different than the other sports as well and know the NFL, which you know we, we talk about here all the time. They don't have the same like they're trying to put protocols in place trying to do the right thing. They don't have a bubble. So that's different and they've got all these other. You know competing interests, which that's a good thing to get all the feedback and make sure everybody's on the same page and everybody kind of weighs in on what they WanNa, do but you? Have to deal with that, so it's A. It's a much different situation. So atoms not surprised, and this isn't just about filing. Said before Dana. White said his sport would be the first one back. It was the first one back. Atom also ask Dana. Has Anything surprised him along the way as they go we? Knew from day one that we can do it I mean he would do it. And You know I was willing to fight the fight. To make this happen to be honest with you. All surprise me. The amount of negativity from the media. The amount of of media that was Media politicians. All working together to try to stop. Which? I was really blown away by that. these guys who cover the sport. Trying to make them not happen in A..

"Window, ESPN Radio, ESPN two. Resented by progressive insurance, all phone guess join us on the show Pencil performance line. Jason fits in for Trey Wingo with my Garlic Jr and Mike Fight Island. I've said this repeatedly. I no fight Island is actually going to be a controlled environment, a nice arena and everything's gonna be fine. It feels like I've got this Lord of the flies, imagery or, like mad Max or Gladiator. Something like that's just the words. Fight Island When you put this in, and then you add Jorge Mas Vidal, who Has just become this marketing machine and it feels like you've got this must watch event for UFC 2 51 tomorrow, largely because I am a sucker for all things branding and marketing. Yeah, no, I think it fight hearing Fight Island conjures up the image of like, Ah, map from like a fight based video games like Mortal Kombat is taking place in some dungeon or on some beach in all this. But instead we know we're getting a closed environment. But like you said, we know we're getting a great fighting someone that could potentially be that face and we're delighted to join. Be joined now. By Daniel Cormier, ESPN UFC analyst. Obviously a great fighter for such a long time, and Daniel, we appreciate the time this morning is that's what's at stake here is Jorge mascot, all of the guy that might be the next best candidate for face of the sport. I mean, he already is. He may be the face of the sport already. I was very excited about you have to 51 when it was Guzman Burns and everybody else. And no disrespect to Gilbert Burns. But I'm a hard core guy. I'm a UFC guy. I'm in the company. I'm a fan of fighting. But since he's allowed in horror now, in spite God, it has completely blown the roof off the excitement around the hole. Sports world in regards to this fight, and I did not expect it to be this big. I did not expect such a massive reaction when he replaced. Gilbert buns, but I mean, that just shows that maybe even the people on the inside you have under estimated the ability to draw Of war. He Margaret, or its massive everything he does. It's just it's been turning the bowling. Talking to ESPN UFC analyst Daniel Cormier. So massive it all losing. It has been well documented recently, £20 he's trying to do it incredibly quickly. So for all of us out of quarantine, I'm jealous and that how do you just dropped £20 in a couple of days? But realistically, what impact will losing that kind of weight have for him in this fight? It's not really it's not like that. Odd afternoon that much weight the any differences. Usually you're preparing yourself got big late cut. I don't want to fight to five. Every time I left Vegas. I was about £20 early, So I think that most people are around that weight. I've started a week. So he knew his fighting last week, So I started to get the weight down and long convention so I don't anticipate is going to be that mention the problem. You tell me you also have 30 hours to recover. Before you actually tight in the Octagon. Today will be fine. But you know, that's what I was saying He took a picture. He's mine over Abu Dhabi the other day. This plane stops in Rome. They get pizza, tickle pictures. If he's sitting in the project, even peaches and completely blew up the whole sport they're talking about. Very much in keeping him and his race in the title exists. It's a It's a big deal. It's a great fight, but I don't think they can do that much of an issue. DC, you mentioned he gets 30 hours to recover. So when he actually hits the ring about where's his weight typically going to be? About the same right? That's why it did not to be too small because if he was £180 naturally, and he lost the last £10 All his body would allow him to do and get back to 1 80 that it might be a blessing in the skies for for game bread because he needs to be bigger because you're gonna have to spend a lot of take down from from last month. Even I have to be big enough to Deal with the physicality of the champions. So he's gonna be 191 Mind and Sunday in 1 90 about naturally The moment he was killed and you start to drink. And he does. The boom will put that £20 that one in 67 hours. So, with his side of it well documented in the way he's coming out of the way he's going to have to lose on the other side. We've got tomorrow's mom who's coming into the situation now preparing for a different fighter at the last moment. So what is the adjustment that you think's being made from his side to try and counter act at his best he can with that limited time. You know, I thought tomorrow was mine on Saturday when the fight was announced, and he was so excited about the bill are the opportunity to life. Holy mother, because you know, those guys have a lot of bad blood used the original opponent and he feels like this is a great match off because you think you could round them ability to push the high pace and just Tried to tune me out, man, but easier said than done. But the champion very confident in this magic and You know, I believe that We looked at the odds in model was about a 3 to 1 dog, and I understand that people quickly. It's short notice. But if they catch the guy walked with two months ago would be about a 3 to 1 dog anyway. This is a very difficult matchup model, and I believe the champion known that, but he's very focused on on the spinning keeping championship is not taking game red lightly on no means. Talking to Daniel Cormier, ESPN. You have see analyst Golovkin window on ESPN radio. Jason fits in for Trey. And my goal is to sit with my goal of Junior Seau. Dan when you When you look across the board at what Fight Island means I heard, Dana White say it was important that they be international that the brand wants to be international. And this was A of getting international fighters involved. So when you look at the growth of the sport that you're so passionate about that you're involved with that you love how important in your mind wasn't that this international event beheld. This is a big deal, right? Because It was. You know, when you were talking about marketing We were told Fight Island by day in a life and then they gave us no detail. So then your imagination that just one wall, right? And then when you tell the island's been before in the his old environment, as you said, it didn't change it because I love you Just make up like this idea, Tom. And you just You just thought about all the girls in the game. This fight out about the nostril. This is about the guy's all around the world that can't get into the United States so massive. It was not to get these guys opportunities to fight and make money during this pandemic, but It's a big deal. It was usually in the national fighters, and I'll see you guys think you have to fight here because you are a lot of American fighters After a point, you know, so it's ah It's great. It's great scene, if it really is because they know why they're such a mad man able to put these ideas together and then make him come to fruition. To that Dana White was one of the first ones pushing you get new UFC back before any of the rest of the sports. There. He wanted to start giving this back to his stands and really capitalized during this time period. And with some of that we all worried about the risks that would be going along there, but we've seen and it's been documented The testing that's gone into each and every one of these fights. Overall is you've talked to fighters. If you talk to people around the UFC, what's the response been internally from the job they've seen when it comes to testing and safety protocols to go into all of this. Oh, man, That's so, but he kept going on right now. And like what Gilbert burn right. He went to Vegas before he went to Abu Dhabi, and that's when he tested positive border. The Colditz So like you went to Vegas. If you're leaving the United States, you You pointy for days while getting tested there. If you were good, you got on sort of flight out to Abu Dhabi, where Right off the plane you got tested again Went to your room for another 20 wild quarantine until you got to touch back, then tested again on the third day. Had to stay in quantity. One more day to go out. So three negative test before they can have access to the hotel and the safe zone. Abu Dhabi has really stepped up. Don't like a 10 mile radius out there that called it saves on..

"It's football's here. What's it mean for the people that are actually putting themselves at risk? And are they comfortable with that risk those air all completely separate conversation? What you just said? Is this the most apt version of this anyone can say, and it's easy to say football's back. We have J. C trader on the Brown Center and the president of the NFLPA yesterday, and he said, it's not just about coming back. Our focus has to be on not just getting back. Anybody can get back. It's about staying back. It's about finishing the season, not finding ourselves in a position that we get back there and then we get shut down midway through early on. That's kind of worst case narrow for everybody. So I think every decision we make needs to be about mitigating as much risk is possible and avoiding that worst case scenario and We know we'll never be able to get rid of all risk, but every decision that we don't make to mitigate as much rest as possible is going to cost us. And I guess the thing that concerns me the most About all of the decisions around mitigating risk seems to be kind of what you talked about. There is all of this just being discussed in a re away for the first time now because you had all this time period part ofwhat was ugly about Major league baseball was all of it took place over such a long time. We thought you could have been first and it's that we have this argument dragged out over months between both sides. While it would have been ugly, I would hope that the players and the league have been having some versions of these conversations a lot sooner than work hearing they should be, but I'm not what they did. We don't know why I hope they did. But would anybody be shocked to find out that the NFL is an overall brand wasn't forward thinking and was wasn't proactive but instead is reactive. I mean, That there is sort of a proof proof is in the pudding for past actions. So I want to believe with you that there is some element of that. I'm just not sure I think just realistically, we got to get used to a world where the players is going to be fighting this end. Importantly, we've got to get used to a world where you may wake up on Sunday and find out that your favorite team team's quarterback is out because of a failed test. Not just for that game, but for the next game, and for the next game. I mean, This is going to be a real part of what effects the season won't be breaking it down. But coming up Buster's been a negative Nellie When it comes to the odds playing baseball is me more positive with his mood today.

I'll tell you about life or you're gonna win ticket out. Lori was training for newsmen for 2 50 once before negotiations got messed up, and then someone had to take on Burns. Burns is a wrestler. So this month camp Was predicated on wrestling. Now it's 54 was a strike. Jorge said in an interview yesterday. If he sees those MMA In the hotel lobby. You're gonna break his face, and I don't know if you guys wanna quit going around. They almost ran into each other at the lobby. I'm happy they didn't. I'm happy and I didn't break his face because I'm pumped for 2 51 here. Yas Island, Fight Island, The cage on the beach, which is just a practice cage looks absolutely beautiful. Look at the ocean is spying on no charade this violate or what is that Probably man made. Looking at water out of ways to look at that. Look at the water out on the other side is beautiful, but I guess it's probably 100 150 degrees out there. They can't fight outside. They're going inside that strictly This is strictly just for pictures and stuff like that. But I'm pumped for USC to 51. I'm a little bit upset. If somebody to relay this message is Dana White. When the World Cup has games during the day. I love it. When the WW has their paper view over in Saudi Arabia that's in the middle of the day. I love it. If they were to have this Saturday, middle of the day, which I get, I think the times it would be awesome. It would be absolutely now granted, that goes against probably what every fight fan is thinking that I'll go get my drink. I'll get my dinner like you might be able to do all that. I like to go to bed with the fights like I can understand that as well. But for me if they have this thing at 3 p.m. It's in the middle of the day and I get a chance to see to do just go at it. I mean that I got my entire evening. After that. I'm here for that. I am absolutely so It's scheduled for 10 p.m. Easter, which isn't terrible. Which is normally later that which is 6 a.m. local time in Abu Dhabi. That's why I'm saying they should just let him do this. But granted, Jorge just went over there, so he's probably transferred times. He's probably just staying on schedule here. Just doing his thing. Couldn't or shouldn't The UFC have atleast tried to maybe built a glass container around you that it's an incredible visual. That's that's my fight island. Yeah, well, that's why they put the picture up there strictly for the Diggs fight Island, But I guess it would be unsafe to fight in that he recorded my sources. The water source is the golf is the Persian Gulf. Oh, By the way, the Persians don't play any game. Then they come in 300 kind of hands in there. Oh, yeah. I mean, they had the numbers. Cirque Caesar see the big answer him. He was Massive that huge. You know, we're we're fighting and only 300 people and you've got a couple 1000. That is problem. But when you're that big in that Hanson was probably gonna add to the Laura little bit. 37 minutes after the hour. We've got to get to a break. Kenny. The jet Smith joins us on the other side. All the way through the end of the hour should be great conversation. He alluded to the fact the front office sports. He's probably leaving inside the NBA on TNT at some point to take a front office gig. Let's talk to him about how do you build a team?.

Fight Island business one of the. Best some would say the best amen. This is one of the all-time great promotion jobs in Dana White's life. The fact that he was able to convince everyone that this is a fight island situation that's exotic with a beach and all this when they were just there in September I, was there in two thousand ten, when Anderson Fired Damian. Maya they've been to as island before. There are no palm, trees or waves, crashing behind the or anything like that he has let everyone's imagination run wild to his credit, selling t shirts and stuff. This is phenomenal work you must admit. The most brilliant thing that Dan did is he was able to identify early on my goodness, there's something he just throughout the term fight. He thought nothing of this. The media ran so wild with it. He only had two options. Let Their imaginations run and reap the rewards I mean John Oliver was doing pieces on Jimmy Kimmel commented on it was a big deal whatever fight you mentioned the merchandising and whatnot. You and I have speculated on it, multiple times. The best thing he did was to see. The imagination is better than the.

"Say that was the peak? was that the peak of like you just being on fire I? Mean you couldn't miss back then. At that time. That was a lot of fun. It was very much a lot of fun and even Rome. You know the true professionally is, but he was stumped at the time like it was a level of ridiculousness. was just so far. It was baffling things in life. Work that way mathematicians. We'll tell you. How coming by at five stones to a pile of seven stones, it's the same as adding seven stones to a pile of firestones, and the answer is just so obvious that it's almost hard to verbalize and I feel like I, had Rome cotton one of those moments I was supposed to be on that segment for forty seconds, and the all time record was set by brock listener for. For any enemy fighter ever do Rome show, and it was two minutes and forty one seconds the reason I. Bring this up. You couldn't get on. Rome show at that time. This was pre the Fox deal. This is well before the worldwide leader stepped in a vsbn so going on Rome was this huge thing. The Pr Wink Pr Gal that drove me to the Senate told me. You're going to be really quick. The longest anyone's got his brock and that was two minutes forty one seconds. I ended up getting over six minutes on Rome show and I was a big hero amongst the PR for that reason. Wow, that's great and that was right before the infamous press conference in San Francisco where I. Think is the greatest pre fight press conference of all time when he's wearing the pink shirt and you're just on fire next Tiago Alvez right. I had a dream about him last night. You're talking about Anderson Silva. I had a dream about him. We had a third fight. And and he. He beat me again. I literally woke up thinking my good. I'm so glad I. Fight Him three time. Glad that didn't actually happen. Just last night last night woke up got up before clock. I've been up since four o'clock. I'm not four o'clock guy much closer to six am Guy Yeah. I got up out of asleep. I had a nightmare Anderson Silva. How do you like that? Does that happen often? No I have I have dreams about it, but not to the point that it wakes up and I can't go back to sleep and because it seems so real. I? Really I had all the emotions. I was in the locker room I was feeling the crowd I mean the whole bit the smell of the Octagon, which is very unique in of itself. No. No, not one like that does not happen very often. Wow, that is amazing driven, but other opponents or just him. No, not not specifically like an opponent or match, you know that I had wished to gun different, or even the positive was for some reason. The positive ones never sleep into my sub cautious. You know it's only the negative thoughts, but no I would say probably just him. That is and do you ever relive the first fight when that happened ten years ago, where approaching the the anniversary in two months? For the first time about six weeks ago I want any five show he's a Jew Hickson gracie black belt out of New York, but he had me on his show and the show. The zoom was that I. Watch the first fight in the I commentated now. This is a relatively small show I. Don't know if anybody wash. It was a favourite Eddie, and but that was the first time I've ever actually watched that match and I I wish I. had it still makes me nervous. My hands still sweat my stomach. Still get sick I swear to goodness. I watched that fight wondering what the outcome was. Hoping it would be different on video that it wasn't person and very weird very very surreal for me. To even leading up to the second, you didn't watch it. I never watched the first one now, but I haven't watched any of my fights again even if they go. Back and rewatch because that and I think that's a flaw. I think I would learn more. I think I could sit down with coaches study. I think that was a missed by me, but it's too hard. You know I get all that the same executives, those same feeling just sitting there Washington even if I know the outcome, and even if the outcome is positive I, don't watch. Did your coaches ever try to get you to watch? And you just said no I'm not feeling this. No, they never did Clayton rewatch them Clayton. Rewatch four or five times and take notes. Bring it to the gym, but I just trusted him. I never did it myself incredible well anyway. He said I. Never Second Guess Clayton Ours Yeah I know you speak very highly by the way wins the. What was the first fight that you work together? Yes. It was Paulo Phelan two. WGC event and how did you link up? He was training a number of guys. Predominantly Ryan the Lion Scholtz and I went to Ryan I said you know. How do I get it with platelets system so I talked to him in California. He was coronary Matt Linlin per somebody and I talked to him. On the way back from the away from the hotel to the airport I say hey, when we get home, you know. Can Can I start up? And he said yes, but I I didn't know if he meant it or not. He did, and he called the first workout on a Sunday morning at six am and the snow outdoor workout, and that was to see if I was serious. Yes I showed up of I. Mean I, don't know. Maybe you're sleeping in. You didn't want to be out in the snow. Shale is not sleep and I go to bed when stark I'd get up when it's dark like a man. All right okay, so these are runners. If you're laying in bed. When the sun's up in the country, you are worthless. I will tell you that I get up when it's dark aerial now, are we? Are we using an alarm to wake up? Are we waking up on her own? I'll always an alarm. I despise the mornings. Every every morning is a struggle for me. Does. I know. She needs no alarm. She gets up at like four thirty and. GETS COFFEE GOES IN. The other room starts watching television shows. Yes, she let the kids get up about six. She's about ninety minutes to herself. And your your big. I I understand when.
