"And that ply way now coming up to eighty five I'm still going to happen with the business. And my need to have the motto. All right. Here's where I probably may piss people off. I don't know. But what did you think of your champion of your way class losing to the flyweight champion? Like, did did it trickle down to you guys? Like, I heard a lot of flyweights. Hey, Henry win it. And so so that we can keep the flyway division not necessarily because they were Henry fans, but they're fighting for their jobs, but as far as you wouldn't your champion lost to the lighter weight class. Like, did it bug you? Or did you hear any chatter amongst other band and Wayne's like, oh man are champ led us down. I guess. Yeah. I mean, I saw the one interview from. It is. And I heard Jimmy reveres. If you actually probably about an hour ago talking about it. I don't it doesn't necessarily bother me. I look at it. Like this is first time getting down to one twenty five. I don't think he's bus. I don't think he's competed at one twenty five cents college. And I think the fight was stopped a tad bit too early. Okay. And at one twenty five I think, he my personal opinion. He looked a little depleted, even though he said everything went great everyone says that for the cameras, but if us but behind closed doors, that's the only that's the that's the road. True. When you gotta look yourself in the mirror, and I think when he got shoved over like that by by Henry, even though his feet were low cost up that was a telltale sign of this this might get ugly, really quick. And I think once it'd be different. But I don't wanna see that right now. I wanna see TJ fight a band. Wait and get this division moving. Yeah. Me too. And now that I think about it. You're right. It's like he took off his ban on weight jersey and went and became a flyweight thought. Yeah. If he I think it'd be worse had Henry gone up and beat him at the higher class. So maybe take a little bit more. I respect EJ a lot of enjoyed covering them since tough. But yeah, it just didn't go his way, you know, that the fight out at the forum. All right goes do you in sterling our guests who's fighting Jimmy Rivera on ESPN abdomen to win?.

"I think Hulu Caesar. No, no, the guy who just fought pack yield. But now now the guy who just fought, but she say Lucas Batista from Argentina and a guy who knocked him out of few years ago. I'm sorry. He fought five. We'll Mino Marquez is there, and we had a good time there he met the guy from blood in blood out, which is one of Henry's favorite movies. We used to watch it all the time when we had not TV put in this DVD. So he watched the blood in blood out like thirty times in one month because we had no TV and are no cable, and then we met the guy named L meadow metal that Bank that time and even back then he he had personality. Like he said he said, he's a I'm single try rent singled trilingual and ready to mingle from Sunday to from Monday to Domingo's dead. So he's got he's definitely got there. I think he could be the face of the UFC who else has an Olympic gold medal can speak three languages. And and you know, it takes on big challenge. Takes on a huge towns is he'll take on. I could see him even going up to forty five. But. It would be it would have to be like a perfect match up. We don't want a you know to get crazy like the other team was talking about. Yeah, holloway. I'm thinking more like one super fight or something coming up going up there somebody that's a good matchup for him. But I think he could be the face not only for the flyway division. But just for the UFC in general for MMA overall. You know, what I gotta say for the reason why he successful is. Because he's majorly talented the other reasons why he's got great coaching stuff. Man. You can just see it around him. He's got a big change your a big reason for that. So I know you guys don't wanna pay yourselves on the back too much. But I'll do it for you. You guys did a great job getting him ready, again all kinds of him for doing all that work himself, obviously. But it takes a team to get somebody that talented ready for that event and everybody did. So I take my hat off to you guys. Well done. Yeah. Thank you. You know, I was I a. was a. I remember because when I was coaching at Tino Geir, we had Anderson Silva genital Santos. And I remember Handerson used to have an entourage of like thirty guys. And I'd be there at the fights like, wow, man. This is way too much and certain. As we get closer to the last two fights. We're rolling like twenty deep squat learning deep in it. They all have a specific role. Each one of them have a role. One is social media. One is his nutrition one is his strength and conditioning. One is stretching one guy is a everybody has a role, and it's it's awesome to see us as a cohesive unit. Yeah. Yeah. We we even brought in a team leader Dave zone line too. To manage it. Because the last time I it was it was almost too much for me, almost we we got it taken care of. But I was like I need somebody to help me with the stuff that doesn't have to do with fighting. And so he came in and helped out a lot with that we had team meetings every day. It was like the military, man. Monday, Monday morning team meeting Tuesday morning team meeting Friday video video conference video challenged the owner of the gym or the team leader. He was calling from Portugal. You know, we nine hours ahead. He was calling before practice and after getting updates. So it was it was it was probably one of the best cancer. I've ever been apart over was in charge. It was definitely this last camp. And I saw it..

"It's really good that the combative arts are now. Much more open with each other. There's still some walls there where everything's kind of segmented. But relative to how it was when you were wrestling in the army, it's so much better. Now terms of finding people in having access to the technical experts in verse combative arts of bringing them altogether. Yeah. You gotta have an open mind. That's one of the biggest things I think of being a coach, especially from a traditional combat sport. As we have a lot of us have closed minds in always say that the literal illiterate of the twenty first century aren't people that cannot read as people that can't learn unlearn and relearn is in MMA. You have to lose you have done. Learn the rest of moves that are going to get you choked choked out you have to unlearn the boxing. That's not that's gonna get you knocked out of the ju jitsu that's gonna get you knocked out. It's gotta be catered to anime. So a lot of people don't consider consider his that karate are are karate coach mantle to be like a secret weapon 'cause nobody's training. Really like that. In a person. That's a really enjoys. Karate for 'em may making sure he's studies. How's it going to work in MMA? And that's what that's what he does. So even you know, even Henry just before he fought on Saturday last person who called was Patricia pit bull because he really respects him. And he Patricio gave him told him. You're gonna knock out have confidence in your hands. Go to the body. You're gonna hurt him early hurt him early and soon as TJ switch stances and he hit him to the body. Then he hit him to the head. You know, it was thirty seconds. But you Henry Henry was coming for the kill early. He looks powerful. He looked fast. What do you make of the criticism of the stoppage? I'll tell you candidly up on my cards on the table. I didn't think it was a great stoppage. But I think it's I think it's probably okay. No, I, you know. Obviously anything could have went a little bit longer. But I think the result might have been the same would have been the same. Probably just more damage on them. And Henry was Henry was hurting him. He hit him with the kick. The head kick hit him with the left. Kgo eight one behind the ear. You gotta right straight right over the ear. And there's a YouTube video that's called what really happened with the T J dillashaw versus Henry pseudo. And they break it down perfectly. How how many shots he took? And and how he wasn't maybe defending himself intelligently? His were the wrong hand was up. Henry was over here. But he was looking over here. So now, he explains it perfectly. And I'd rather have that's probably the best video for us to watch. 'cause he breaks it down blow by blow. Do you want? This remiss to happen at one thirty five as a coach. You know, I get the economics of it. I don't know how much I love the idea. Yeah. You know, it's kind of like working against the save in the flyweight division. You know? But it's not that Harry doesn't want to say the flyweight division. It's more for that one match. I'm not so sure how much Henry likes to conquer. He's a conqueror. You know? He conquered the Olympics retired and next day. He conquered the flyway division and yesterday again, and you know, challenges for the the next title. But that doesn't mean he wouldn't go back. I think go out there BT j just to get that bell. And the able to say, you're the double champ champ. Which would put you in one of one meaning Olympic gold flyway gold bantamweight gold in I think that's kind of. That's what he wants for his legacy. He it's not more about that accessory belt..

"To receive this belt. So my my road has been I've gone through some terrain ah, you know, to get to where I'm at today. And I think there is a feeling as you face dillashaw this weekend that you were fighting that just for yourself, but maybe for an entire division and entire weight class and UFC can you explain that to our audience? Absolutely. I think of the UFC there possibly thinking about getting rid of my weight division. And I say no, give me the baddest kind of planet and not asked and I says I wanna fight the guy a bubble weight. And he wanted to come down negotiated and I think winning this fight is good. I'm here to make a print. I'm here to make a pronounces for me. But for the whole flyway division. I've heard some quotes from dillashaw on his coach that they're talking about moving up to one forty. Five four their next fight. Now, what is your reaction to the notion that they're talking about his next week before this fight takes place, this this this is what I'm telling you. He's crazy. Did you got you got you got the Olympic champ? You got the use chat right in front of your thinking about max Holloway. You got a date with the messenger. And he ain't playing. What is it? You have for him that you think he's not expecting everything looks point rustling. I got it all you began your career with ten straight wins. Then you lost two in a row before winning three in a row to take the belt. What did those defeats teach? You about yourself. You can go in there too confident. You know, you can't go on their singing and dancing, and I learned my lesson. I got put out in two minutes and thirty six seconds. But you know, what I did I travel the world I fired a bunch of coaches, I brought people into my life, and I was able to defeat the boogeyman that guy that beat me two and a half years ago to about facing your problems about being ruled with your.

We'll see if he turns into that. But I'm not sure if they saw that the US's a weird place in another thing that highlights that is they just shut down the flyweight division. Dimitrius is out there. Like, we don't really like short people. Bringing the money Dominick. Cruz told me that you have to twenty nine Dominick Cruz in there having a conversation. They're gonna shut it down. And I was like, really. Yeah. He was explaining why this made perfect sense. And he was right. Do you make perfect sense? Yeah.

He's like take my ego out of it unless person that BT J dillashaw. Why should I be fighting him for the title? I'm looking so he's like it only tells me that. So who does getting that opportunity because they plan on shutting down the division? He was right. So weird. Right. 'cause now TJ and the reason he took this fight was to try to be dual champion originally. That's why he campaigned for the fun against mighty mouse right to cut weight and become a dual champion. Eliminating division takes that accomplishment away. From like, are you really beating champion when that belt is connected to nothing will. I mean cyborg has built and look at division. There's not even ranking sport. No. But she sells. Yeah. She does. Like the whole the whole point is like the flyway division. No matter what anybody says like all hardcore fan. So you love it. Nobody watches them outside community Johnson. Nobody they don't care. You don't car they give some excited fights. But they do not give exciting fight. This is that the UFC has not put a red cent behind marketing that division because it's been Dimitrius Johnson and everybody else for so many years and guys like just videos, I mean is partially to do the fighters as well guys benefit as pets the couldn't get past a guy like DJ or when they get close they lose. So there's there was no marketing push put behind those guys in the fact that they're not headlining events. They're not household names. Do not like the only in there because of DJ it's only to find out who's gonna fight Dimitri Johnson. This only reason why they existed in. And now it's like. Nobody's going to miss them. Let's be honest. Because who who are you missing added a division whose the fight that you go damn, man. I really want to see if to meet your Johnson, it's a hudas moving up who listen race. Yeah. No. Like everyone else. I wanna see can move up. When we saw tossing dots..

"Why would you get rid of it right now of all the time to get rid of it? This doesn't seem like the right time with DJ the picture you've got fresh fresh whites every this. So get TJ to come down do that fight if you wanted so badly. Now, you're talking about to me, it just seems like this idea that oh we can't make money off the division. Really? There's been one guy who's been champion. It didn't work out for whatever reason it didn't work out, by the way, some of the great the greatest sub in my opinion, Ray board versus DJ. Right. That's that was incredible. I think so who oversees DJ was one of the best fights of the year. Like what you're going to? You're just going to get rid of this. Why you're creating fake belts all the time. Yeah. Right. You're finding reasons to create fake bills. Interim titles for no reason whatsoever. Just to put it on the pay per view champion champion or interim title. You're just going to close this division. That's crazy to me. That makes no sense. I'm Motiur point. That's why I want one hundred sixty five hundred vision because other reasons legit championship belt instead of an interim. I l or something else being stripped away from champion X. So. Yeah. Going about the flyweights. I hope hope you know. And hopefully, Henry Huda comes out and puts his stamp down too. Yeah. I haven't really had him say to. Yeah. He's over in somewhere overseas at some wrestling tournament, and I actually texted him in here back. But yeah, he needs to say something at this point. I know his coach Erica bar scene has been very vocally sending me all these what's up of voice, notes and stuff. We need to see this division. We got juicier for Migo. We got Sergio pedestals now moving up, of course, Joseph Benhamouda's there's flights out there for him. And also, the flyway division isn't as mature as some of the other in the sport. And specifically in the USC. So imagine if you are legit flyway an Amish of trying to make your way up the regional circuit your goal is to get to the goal is to be the champion. And so two who knows what kind of characters and personalities they're out there making their way up. Right. And so the abolishes that division crush so many dreams and hopes out there, which we were we hard as well. I think as the gold standard in the sport. The you have C needs to have every major division in the sport. And so you. You must have the one twenty five. I thought it was very important to have the women's flyweight division. And I would argue and has been a little chatter about this. I would argue adding the women's one five pound division. I feel at the C should have every major way class. Right. And at this point, they're only missing two one five all if they get rid of one twenty five missing to. Like, it just seems so strange to me that you'll skip when not that long ago. They got rid of one fifty five or call now. One fifty five is the glamour division in the UFC. You just have to sort of everything is cyclical to five now. Right. Wants a time the two five so to me, it would be very short-sighted be a very big mistake. I don't think it costs them anymore money to have this vision. And you've got a champion Ken. We to me to shame. It's a real shame. By the way. What was the? We did a fantasy trade thing for us dot com where we have to through another trailer thing. I don't think it's going to be a very common thing. But now that they're thing, and this is a proper trade. It's a real trait. Everyone's sort of, you know, rolling their eyes at that.

"And then more to what you guys are speaking. Where's the end product? I know they have the one apple, which is great and awesome. Glad they did that. But you know, with the way I'm thinking kind of idea floated out early I really would love you know, does own to really get behind and try to pick up. Maybe these more Asian markets to help, you know, help us watch it. So we can wake up the next day. And we we don't have to necessarily watch it live. But they're right there as well. And I'm interested to see if any of those deals come down the pipe the end. Product is something that's very important. What direction are they going because we said multiple times on this show? Sometimes we're just not gonna get up that early to watch these fights because their fighters were not familiar with not gonna have anything to do with our rankings any of that type steps. So if we want to just because you're a hardcore at the time, we just don't have the time. So if the end product now includes a card that has Eddie Alvarez Dimitrius Johnson Athlon a up for that card. So it depends where they want to go at this because you don't just pay out money and just hope he become popular. They've gotta have some kind of plan. Maybe it is some sort of streaming thing with his own or something like that would make sense, but I'd like to hear a little bit more from the bigwigs at one and just kind of give us little direction as the where they're going with all this and one last thing if they go with the thing like designer make those more North American Centric, moose, then I wouldn't be surprised maybe see, you know, them giving other guys a home who maybe want to make commentary to hear Malo commentator. Eddie Alvarez fight or. Organization with soccer kicks with you know, be something enticing, especially for the hardcore not to get to ahead of the conversation. But yeah, right now, they got Michael the voice develo and who's do George. I'm not sure who is broadcast. Jason chambers was. Team at one point. But I think he's there anymore. So I don't know. I'd have to go back and try and kept up with. Okay. Here's the thing is the first time DJ fights the first time Eddie fights. Of course, I'll go and check it out there app is wonderful like, Dan stated, but I just don't know. I mean, it takes two to Tango. And I don't know how exciting the fight can be if they don't have the level of competition out there to to make it exciting. Here are the here's the straw champions. Okay. Remember, they call the straw, the hundred and twenty five pound hundreds out there, we call flyweights on here, but the former straw champions are guy name Amnuay Shikaki Yushi talk, not Naito, Alex Silva Yushi how you she talk NATO. And then Joshua prosciutto is the incumbent. The flyway division, which is a hundred and thirty five pounds. And I'm sure to meet with fight one hundred thirty five out there. I've only heard of Adriana more is the other ones were care at Achmat Akmedov gauge, he used to Keough, and that's it. So it those those bookings other than maybe DJ Adriana mariah's. It's not gonna get give me that excited. Now. This is the beginning of a lot of one competing for certain fighters to come over from North America Europe and South America. Then hey, I think we have to give him a chance see how they stock up those shelves what other fighters are they going to bring over. But it was just these two. I'm just not as excited as everyone else. I'm sorry. But I will always watch their first first fights just to see how they're treated how they're received. I hope the best for them. But I just felt like it was two guys that were doing very well in the UC. And I always felt like if you're a champion in the of see once you start making a little bit of that pay per view money..

"I was eating lunch and down the crew sedimentation. And it was just me and him. Everybody else would love I feel like bothered him because he was doing his research. So then Dominic was just like he just introduced himself. And I was like, I know who you are like, I know you. He's like, no I've seen you around. And you know, it just wanted. And so we started talking, and we are having a conversation. And I was asking him about doing recon fights baba so dommage light at a certain point. We had the talk. I was like when you going like when you get back in the case. And he's like, I don't know been lobbying for dillashaw, but they won't give it to me. They are hell bent on giving this fight to pseudo. And he's like tells me only one thing that they're getting rid of the flyweight division. And I was like, you're joking right news. Like, I'm not because he's like think about it the division without DJ champion is really nothing. And if you're going to have who do not defend the title, and you're gonna have like he was like make sense that it is to me. I'm the person who beat dillashaw last. Why wouldn't I get the title shot who was more deserving the meeting title shot? He was like he's like I'm not saying that because I'm selfish. I'm saying because dillashaw who doesn't sell shit, and he's absolutely right. Yes. Who does nothing? So maybe there is some truth to the flyway division. Being shuttered. Maybe he wasn't blowing smoke. Do. They doubt. It's mighty mouse is still champion. No. Because you have one of the greatest fires all time champion, but once you have so who who says I can comfortably move up in weight. I mean, if pseudo didn't fight dillashaw, right and Sergio Pettus just lost. Nobody wants to say. So who'd over is like for me. They'll really there's no value in mighty mouse. 'cause he was never going to move up. So everyone has the now it's like. Yeah. And if I'm Bill tour, I'm like, give them all to me. Yeah. I'll take every last one of them. But for the UFC for Ben aspirin, a guy who is talked trash about everybody negoti. Yeah. We'll take him deciding in ring style, but it doesn't have to be. But it's it's it's a guy who wins fight in a stack division who has been the champion whose undefeated under for coming to see where DJ you can just ship them off in data's not losing any sleep. Because he hasn't pushed mighty mouse. We should have been in the first place does Minnie mouse deserve better. Absolutely. But at this point Dana hasn't care for him. Then he's gonna get more bang for his book. Now is like a Mark Cooper senators acid Dow's we have no use for him anymore. Shook Dave shave I feel like Lisa pari went for first rounder DJ. We asked to DJ was the best fighter of all time. I know it I wouldn't do it me personally. I wouldn't do value easy. But he'd ask it in a prospect. I need I need something player to be named later something that's drain business. But it the question really is like there's what do you have more value in right now if you're away 'cause do J against who if it aids to who'd you gotta feed aspirin to big name right away. Just on the chance. He wins yet. You brought him over to south. Well, it's not going to get. You're right. You're right. But but but that's what I'm saying. But the question is like there's ESPN GSP ready. Do you want to? But that makes all these things for aspirin. He's got opportunities if DJ's not gone who is he fighting in the UFC. Yeah. No. I mean, he's gonna take a number one contender's fight fucking flatly. Does this stuff? He deserves. It media rematch. Right. He'd susan. But if they're not going that route head on Netflix. Exactly. But if. They're not gonna do that. It's time to let them go. Very he's gone. Switch to boxing. Pacu fish Lee with PBC. Two questions. Bruna is his first fight after we had to put it today..

"I mean, obviously they've got Argentina on the horizon. They're trying to do a few more minutes. I think Mexico comes back on the table next year, but I don't know if they're planning on going to Mexican issue, but they've got a new TV deal next year, which is one of the reasons it was kind of offer a little bit. But the last time there in Monterey they had a hard time selling tickets. So. It's interesting, but you know, keeping that wake that way class around for a couple of so-so markets is tough, but I agree. I, I would hate to see a goal. And again, this is all speculation, but I would hate to see it go, man. I I like the flyway division. I think that the fights are fantastic, but you know, they're thinking about it from a completely different point of view. They're thinking about, you know, marketability in profitability. Yeah, you know, this talk makes me think of kind of more long lines with Dan was saying, as far as I'm hoping these streaming services take on, and the gap is bridge from the other. The other side I think was so easy for us to put the onus on the UFC and therefore they're going to be the brunt of a lot of criticism that some of the just being unfair because they're going to be the big guy in the room. Right? But I think you know, we can look at the other organizations to bridge. Some of these gaps is other possibilities. We should be throwing around these conversations to because my worry is that not just what he said. You know, we saw the, you know, the behind the scenes. There's a lot of things from TV to putting money behind fighters for the Mexican market that we kinda seem fall by the wayside sadly, and the Asian market, which is. Extra sad when you just consider the history to sport the history of martial arts and their population worldwide. I mean, these are undeniable numbers, but yet the market doesn't reflect that kind of like what John said. So it's really sad. And I feel like today, especially with rules and sponsorships and people like not looking like the liking the image of certain shows, I feel like going back to the Japanese anime actually would would help our seen right now, whether we're talking about judging fights by the actual winners, we're talking about the PF l. tournaments and deciding things, or we're talking about not just UFC, but even other other organizations involving more pageantry to kind of get people involved now that the pro wrestling and berries have been lifted as you know for the for for most people so to speak. So yeah, it's a bummer. And I feel like I'm a worry. My worry is that we're going to spread further from that Asian market loot, lose track of it. I feel like we've really kind of went, went away when you go back and look at our history of the sport, we are much more connected to it. We had to be with pride and so on and so forth. And we're moving further and further away and the one twenty five division is a huge. Connecting piece to these international markets. Good way to look at it. I wonder if it's the pull from boxing and pro wrestling, pulls him a main more towards how scoring events just get done in North America because I also liked the pageantry I liked the production. I like how fighter could be more individualized now personify or whatever. You know, I mean, I watched the last risen affair was thinking about skinny Alastair who brought that? Oh, yeah. Would we call it the the mouth, the hammer. I mean, I loved it because time I was say something else to it was completely off though. Did you guys finish your thoughts there? Wise thing. I mean, I saw the risen show, and Dan also talks about these shows a lot there last one, and they are actually running on that a audio issue. So the beginning of the show was messed up and then they had to make up for time. They cut out all their push for interviews that being said with all those issues, the production was ten times better than what I've been used to seeing. It was so refreshing. A guy was introduced to guys that I will. Remember because what George said just from props and certain things in their walkout they didn't even get their interviews because of the things like George set..

"And then you have this situation where they can't get her to fight and then she misses weight. And so then I'll go to my tweet saying, let's get this division on track, and there's only one person to do it because you want as a pro you want as a draw you want as a former champion, you want someone who successfully defended her belt multiple times and they've already talked about going to twenty five with all due respect all the people who are attacking me, you're not draws yet. Yeah, you're not selling paper, views. You wanna versa. Valentina is a pay per view headliner in my opinion, and there's a history there and they fought three times in tight said I was trying to knock any of them. I don't know what it is with me and the fly with they'll come all come after me very quickly. It also stands to reason based on that logic that this would only help if you'll on is the champion of that division. As you mentioned, she's a draw. She's a name. She somebody that if they then got that opportunity to fight, it means a heck of a lot more than if they were to get the opportunity to fight for this. Now. Now if they capture the belt and you wanna becomes a challenge. That's another story altogether, but I do think that this division has been off track a little bit and it does need a fight that people care about, and there will be some steaks magnitude to it. And you wanna definitely provides you book versus. Yeah, it's a new brainer. It's unfortunate for the people who are in the flyweight line. And I think I wouldn't have said I would not have the same answer had Nico and Valentina fought. I would not have said the next fight is Yulon versus Valentina would have said the next challenger in line for flyweight. But I think this division needed at this point is why I'm with ULA. It's it's it's a no brainer. She's a big name. She's a draw and let's not forget. Valentinas one knows of flyway division with a rich history, and let's not forget as I told jar Eubanks Frankie, Edgar. Got a title fight at one forty, five after losing two straight? Yeah. At one fifty five. What's the difference in this case, the differences you wanna wanna fight after losing the back in July. So to meet to say like she has earned. It's no, I think you wanna should go to twenty five and I think she should stay there because she's not getting a title fight as long as Roseanne rightness is champion. Now, just on drudge, turn wins and maybe things change. But to me to fresh co pain on her career, it's a, it's a boost to that division. She's a pro people care about her. She's a draw. I mean, just from a business standpoint, if they're all being honest, they all agree. This is the fight to make. Absolutely. Yeah, I have no disagreement there and Nico, you know, going back on Instagram and going on with the ranch and everything that it's just to me. It's not a good look. You know, I don't feel I hear what she's saying about being disrespected by not being told about yellow to hear what she's saying bullied by Valentina. I just I just think at this point after everything that happened and you didn't show up. It's tough to come back from that. It really is. But that's why I think the statement is so important and I think that's why her keeping her voice out there, regardless of whether you agree or disagree is important because this is Hurrell averts. Her relevance was being that champion. That was what she had that belt meant everything to her career, and now she needs to remain in that conversation. So I completely understand it. And I completely agree with her that the fact of her being structured have been found out on social media that should have been a conversation that was had behind closed doors. Absolutely. You should be notified and should be told whether it's maybe you can't speak on the phone..

"So to close out the the second half of two thousand eighteen is nice spotlight on the flyway division, including what recently happened with Henry pseudo beating Dmitri's Johnson. Now, all that said, guys, what do you think is going to happen? We talked about what we think might have some matches the possibilities that are out there. Dmitri's has said I didn't bring my foot, but he does have a knee injury, so good. He be long enough out long enough and could who don't want to fight quick enough. That's who takes another match before they do that trilogy or and I think we can all establish that pseudo vers still shop. Probably won't happen either. Even though it's been talked about dillashaw got capable contenders in mariah's, sons out and even cruise. So I think he needs to sort that out and I think so who needs a sort out flyweight. So now that we have a little bit of Intel, what do you guys think happens? He said it best what should happen, doesn't always happen. So really I think it makes the most sense that Dimitris Johnson's held onto the belt forever. I mean, he kinda deserves it, but if you're the USC and that's not what you want. All you gotta do tell him, hey, maybe you want fight a little sooner and that kind of goes out the window and you don't look as bad. All got a little bit of that. Defended for a long time and he had to actually go get a fight before he was able to get title fights, so they can work around that and look at Cody. Cody one had never defended. And then they waited out these injuries and said now versus dillashaw which kind of pissed off like wait a minute. When I lost. I had to go down the road of trying to become a contender again. Now going back to three hundred k. a lot of people are saying it was three hundred k. but it's because Garbrandt was the star on that car. He's the one that I guess just moves the needle out of the four. I don't think that's wrong. I mean, yeah, I can about it. Yeah. So that's probably why he got the media titled it could be. Yeah, but interesting times here at one thirty five and one hundred twenty good. Yeah, it's right. You guys excited. Oh yeah. Yeah, it's gonna be cool. Yeah, I'm excited. So who do you think do gets? I'm of the opinion that they speed it up. Okay. And they ask him or you take a fight sooner so that they can avoid that rematch. Okay. And then it plays out with whoever wins these fights that are coming up? Yeah. Okay. What do you think really happens? You think they they book Johnson, pseudo or do you think Bill pseudo take another matchup at five? I don't know how long DJ supposed to be out, but I think they speed it up and honestly give him something else just to let the division kind of marinate in it's new life or they kinda, you know, go back right to it. That's what I think they would do..
