"The pitfalls of maybe a george saint pierre bones jones could tell you a like how isolating it is and just how weird it might be yeah i think it's isolating in some aspects and then not everyone is in business and other aspects i don't know yeah it's interesting to see over the years out of the differ fighters like a marvin hagler who just like disappear like i'm on our phone calls he wouldn't do any of you know what i mean like i'm gone and you couldn't do that today i mean there's too many demands from new organization on you to promote the flight so that that would be very hard but i think people mike tyson have have been through the ups and downs and made terrible mistakes made a good decisions and those were the really interesting guys from media talk to 'em just because they know they've been there they've done the wrong thing they've done the right thing and they have so much wisdom that like a not just in fighting but those those old timers like that out of there that old but yeah that that those guys with me out when they talk i listen i i like to hear what they have to say about the world that we saw mike tyson was a one of the greatest athletes of all time like you know just because he doesn't play basketball people don't think about right like see athleticism and obviously mohammed ali had a ton of athleticism spider does yeah but i always just thought explosiveness speed yeah i mean i would argue that he mike tyson would be much better athlete than most baseball you like if they're just like you have to keep that consistency up over and over and over and over explode explode explode explode explode there's the rest of your team you're gonna walk and rest okay let's do it again there's nothing like that in in fighting it's over and over and over and over and over on wrestlers have that especially that's why a lot of wrestlers make great fighters is you get kind of the idea of punished in their head who were some the biggest a mute and say worked with some of the biggest you know people that just they're just freaks like genetically not necessarily muscular anything like that but just athletically asking do something showing something and they got it and they and they almost master it you know better than you even demonstrated that that we have a lot of those guys those guys really learned extremely well and then we have like john jones when he's in shape just doesn't fade so he's not like incredibly fast fast but do you not like knowing watching the john jones fide goes he's the fastest human on the planet nobody says he just doesn't fate like you'll fight in the fifth round is better than he fought in the first and so there's that he has this weird ability to just constantly put pressure on you and not fade and the people like george could just explode out of nowhere gsp's boom and carlos condit doesn't when he's in shape you doesn't fade either you just keeps going and going and going and going when he's at his best so you you have these different personalities and these different athletes even within fighting some super explosive some of them are just consistent on you get a lot of different a lot of different types of athletes but they're all incredible athlete what do you think makes a champion what makes you know john jones holly home some of these other people that you've trained what makes them different they've got 'em they gotta be trouble that's a big deal they've got a handle all their stuff outside that's a big deal but they also have a crazy work ethic like if the whole team does one thing you wanna do five more reps that's it's one thing that i've noticed is that when everybody else is done they'll go do just a little bit more a and i think that's one of the most important elements as i'm as i'm older and as i've you know as i studied a great minds a around the sport like custom auto these people they're ten million times better trained at all ever be 'em is i study them and and listen to what they say in their experiences and at this point

"Through exemptions with DJ ROY in saucy. Love to hear your takes on the binding against boxing amaze. So I assume he's asking, like how fortunate our enemy fans that we actually get see the best fight the bass as opposed to boxing. We're like how long did it take us? Finally, Manny flying out of the way. I mean either that fight happened. The two thousand nine I think that's an obviously as most bought pave you ever, but the two thousand nine that's a high level boxing match made pack ya'll's still in running through the division level still still unseeded, but two thousand nine I feel like it's a bigger deal in terms of competition, rather than making money. So as I made fans how fortunate are we that we get to see the best fight the best on frequent basis? Oh, yeah. It's very important. You know, especially from the hardcore fans from fighters themselves, they wanna see the best fight fight the best. And, and we wanna fight the best. That's why we get into the sport. You know, obviously, we wanna make money but deep down inside, we want to know that we could be the best. So we wanna fight the best possible guy out there. Who's who's the champion who's on the top who has the most wins? But in boxing, it seems to be corrupted promoters, can't come to an agreement where, you know, their top guys, not gonna fight this top God, and it's unfortunate because people are only in their prime for so long. And we wanna see in, in guys primes, if we wanna see them fight, and that's not always the case. Sometimes these promoters, wait, too late to make the bachelors. And then it's no longer the same scenario at no longer has the Saint heat behind it. But yeah, I, I wish boxing would step up in that aspect that we would see the Joshua's Tyson, fury's the Wilders all kind of mix it up and and everyone fight while they're in the top of their game? So, yeah, we're lucky has Emma may fans at fighters to, to. Have that as part of the game right now. I agree with you one hundred percent the only I will play the lab kit, though. And we'd never got to see Angela by George Saint Pierre, which was a to me is the big is one of the biggest missed opportunities in, in Europe. See history where there was a time when they had both cleaned after division, a welterweight middleweight in, if they had just met in the middle or Georgia jumped up twenty five like he did he gets Michael bisbee later later on proven that he could be eyeballing fighter. But that to that just stands out in my mind is like, like tone, do the box. They just find yourself. You guys are clearing. I mean it it still happens in may. It just happens less, and you know not as not as obvious. Not as more frequent, but it still does happen. I feel like as far as promotion goes in general, there's fighters that are being protected due to potential power in the future. They wanna give them the right matchups. I think they do this with showing valley a little bit. And now we're seeing him. Fight Cheeto Veira, I believe this is his first real test against the guy who could potentially beat them while we that's a perfect segue. We actually have a comments about that, that flight. So if you want to expand on that, like sugar, Sean, obviously, he's out with us. You saw at a tainted supplement thing now. He's being fight. I believe his last fight was USC. I wanted to twenty two which I which was max versus. No. It was supposed to be maximum. Frankie being cyborg from this guy in Franken ended up getting knocked out by Brian Ortega, but sugar Sean big test in front of internet, blah. Again, international fight week in other big card, your thoughts on this matchup in your division, correct. Bantamweight. Yeah. Down with. Away. So thoughts on the sugar show and his chances against the Cheeto Veira, it's an intriguing fight on. I like to see that. They're, they're giving him a test. Finally, I'm not not to say anyone. He's fought isn't a good fighter..
"george saint pierre" Discussed on Part of the Problem
"Is pointless first avenue discussion. But to me. In my mind, the refusal to answer the question was evidence enough. And if you look at the comments on YouTube comments on Twitter even Benz acknowledging here and his this was the overwhelming response. And look like I said, I didn't feel like I thought my my performance had a lot of room for improvement. When I when I debated Sam, cedar. But I wouldn't just go out there and be like everybody who saying I did bad as dumb. You're all stupid. You're all the hundred dumbest people on Twitter. I mean to just insult the intelligence of our listeners, I did take a little bit of offense to and I gotta say look. Believe me there. I'm sure if I went through the YouTube comments of any video that Ben Burgess has done. I'd find some comments that I thought were pretty dumb and to be completely honest. I've gone through some comments videos of ours. And thought there were some dumb comments that were in agreement largely with us. But I'm like, this guy is kind of missing point. But to say the dumbest people on the internet. You gotta get out on the internet more, bro. I really take offense to the idea that the people listening to this show are the dumbest people on the internet. There's a hole deep internet out there with some really dumb shit. You're not even scratching the surface. Believe me. Anyway, I thought ultimately what the most powerful part of the debate was was toward the end. When Ben really handed me, what is to me the most convincing. The point or the most convincing argument against his position when he basically said that well, if we just allowed for people to own themselves and have complete control over what they do with themselves. They could there might be the example, he gave the example he gave was that. Someone could be so indebted that they would end up selling themselves into indentured servitude to pay off the debt. And yet. This guy's argument is that if you're indebted to the state they should be able to throw you in jail for it. I I mean that was such a an unbelievable contradiction. That your fear is that someone could be in debt, and this could lead to a real bad situation. Therefore, we should have a state run debtor's prison where the state, and I guess he would say he danced around the question of whether he thought people should be thrown in jail or not for taxes. But he certainly wouldn't give me a no on it. And in the reality of the situation that is what we're talking about. That is the way things are run. So anyway, I appreciate it. Ben coming in. I was as George saint-pierre said about Matt Hughes back in the day. I was not impressed with your performance. But I do appreciate him coming in. And I'd love to do it again with him. I think these type of conversations are interested, and even the people who said they found it frustrating. The listen to your all your all listening. And I know sometimes I know better than you. What you want for yourself? You liked it? I know you liked it. Okay. I would say, and then we're gonna move on and get into the news of the day. I know there was another video that was made about the non aggression principle and part of me wanted to go through it. But I just think it's after the next few minutes. We got a I've spent a lot of on this Ben Burgess fellow on this podcast. And it's we we need a little bit of a me and Ben need to see other people for a little bit. Then Burgess break we that's right. It's not that. We don't still care about each other. We just we both need to see other.

"How would you compare it to Matt Sarah's upset of George saint-pierre at UC sixty nine bigger on par or not as big start off? Dan as tough I came in right at my peak phantom around this time and US sixty nine shoot out. If I want to say, I mean that almost burns in my head. You don't think of it as UC sixty nine are, you snapping shootout? You think of that is the event where Matt Sarah upset, George Saint Pierre we reference it all the time. It's hard to imagine that beating it, but it is John Jones we're talking about and even starches critics even with the positive test. If you will. And and again, you you could be on the complete opposite end of John Jones. And that way, you gotta give the guy credit. He's one of the best fighters we've ever seen in that cage. And I think a lot of people would be blown away as blown away. I I don't know. I I'll say no I'll vote. No, no, not as big not as big goes. He goes I remember that night. And I remember there was a pride going on in Japan. And I had to break the news to a lot of fighters that that had happened. And none of them believed me, that's how big that was actually end up the phone going your lying. We'll just wait and see tomorrow. So that's pretty big. However, I think this is going to be even bigger because here's the thing up until that point saint-pierre had lost. Okay. John Jones is a loss on his record. So to me, this would be way bigger. This is a guy that has almost no holes in his game. All right at the time. You could maybe say Saint Pierre was good. But you hadn't reached great news opponent b Reshad shogun and Volcan, right? Yeah. Whereas GOP or sorry Manser had gone through a comeback season respect to those veterans, but not ranked fighters so and the odds seemed to be even you know, so so you want to stop this. While you go make that bet. I just enjoy the fight. You know, what I'll put something small with him as part of a parley if they let me do it just because I can't walk in and go here's fourteen hundred hundred on John Jones anything can happen in in the day. I do it is that they'll get stunk for fourteen hundred bucks. So if anything I'll put like ten bucks on Anthony Smith or something with another. It's like a lot of ticket. You know what I mean? Yes, I can hit. He heard a lot of those guys that just mentioned, but. I don't really we'll go ahead finish the last thing. I was going to say is when that happened. There were still people finding out about that the next day from from casual fans, whatever if this upset happens on Saturday night with ESPN behind it with this big as the sport is now, there's not a person walk in this earth. That's not going to find out about that within hours. It's going to be huge. All right, James has a Canadian. I gotta say the Sarah that would be bigger, and I'm going to base it off this as a Canadian George saint-pierre doesn't just represent himself. But he represents an entire country so him losing. There's all this hope, you know, he's the next big Canadian superstar everything like daddy looked unstoppable. And we have to look at how Sarah got that title shot. It was on the ultimate fighter. He beat Chris Lytle. I think if you you could argue that Anthony Smith is a bit of a tougher challenge to get to the title, beating Boca notes to MIR. Chris Lytle, I mean, I love the guy that was a close fight. But Sarah God in there. And I think a lot of people felt like he shouldn't have been and he goes out there and not just defeat saint-pierre. But he finishes him in the first round. I. That's so hard to replicate. And the other thing we got add in all the stuff that's going on outside the cage with John Jones that he's had to deal with you know, at some point something's going to happen. He's gonna falter whereas with Saint Pierre he looked unstoppable. I mean, people were just talking about retirement recently. You look at that second fight with Matt..

"But yeah, that's right. So that would be a nice way for pit bull to start to wind down his Greece. But in some time, I'm not trying to show him the door or anything but multiple resign. And I, you know, one of them's a champ already. So it would've been tough for him to get out of his contract different. Your brother in the lightweight division. He's he's he's resigned as well. What's up they need different guys to fight? I think the pit bull brothers that would have been one of the things where if I'm doing that negotiation. I gotta think all right. I'm gonna resign. He's gotta make sure I have people because people show up because they wanna see the pit bull brothers. But it's not always about that one guy like you need, a dance partner, and I'd like to see a couple of different names sprinkled in there for them to fight. In retirement, George saint-pierre, buries a hatchet with UFC president. Dana white you. I really think there was much of one. Did you a little bit? Yeah. I think so. But I remember he was part of that association that they started like that didn't like that very much. That is true. He had this way that thing had legs. Man. I can't believe it was just they were big names. And it was a big announcement. Tim Kennedy came three years ago about news, Donald Sironi, TJ dillashaw, George Saint Pierre and one other gentleman. Who was that v? Jackson, brother. We all know, Marlin, Jackie Tito, Jermaine or whatever which was named off. I but was five wasn't there. Tim Kennedy came. Yeah. He's the one that actually is if there's anything left of etiquettes, he became kind of a figurehead after beyond revenue realized if I'm going to be involved that can't be a public figure head might be behind the scenes figured, but yeah, yeah. I remember. That's okay. I see what you're saying. I guess they're all good. I mean, I just thought they were all good because he allowed him to come back for another world title. But he wants to piss them off again when he when he just took off member, I think he had made a promise to Dana white. Yeah. So maybe that's what it was. But that's good. And I hope I hope because of that there's still that five to ten percent chance of Jeep Joyce NPR. My comeback. Anyway, that article is up by Steven Morocco and Mike bond if you want to check it out, but that was a really really good one. The SPN one salaries came out came Alaska's four hundred fifty he lost. There was no wind books too. That's just what he got member. We heard it wasn't just injury. It was a contract. Hold out. That was keeping them out. I don't know how public that was. But, but I think everyone knew that that was the case so disclose payroll for the car that just took place this past Sunday that included Francis. And Ghana defeating came Alaska's. Was one million eight hundred seventy one thousand dollars the total payroll. Here's how it broke down. Franson gone new.

"It's Brian Campbell here back on the show. Now, we were supposed to be forty, but Chuck mendenhall went to the presser in Montreal to go say goodbye to George saint-pierre. So he was going to be here. I guess they'll be here next week. I don't know. Anyway. All right. Thank you so much for joining us as always we'll get to your tweets and whatnot. At the end of the show keeps sending them using the hashtag the enemy beat. We appreciate all this emissions up to this point. So without further ado, boys and girls, let's get the show. Now, this is a pretty big day in the sport, in my opinion. No, this is up for debate. But I believe that George saint-pierre is the greatest fighter of all time. And again, there's a little bit better on that. I don't think also it's that close of a call. But okay. Some people are married to bad ideas in any event, he called it quits today. Get a press conference in Montreal Danny we saw most of it. Some of it was in French. But we got the gist of it. There's a lot unpack here. I guess I'll start with generally action. What did you make of the press conference? And what he had to say. You know, I I I was wondering if all of this would be negotiation tactic. You know for him to get some leverage. And perhaps, you know, get the fights that he wants because we know he's still interested in fighting. And you know, with this presser just looking him up there and the way he was answering questions he just feels at peace with decision. And I think he said something very important. He's like, you know, I don't always know what I want. But what I do know is that I certainly don't want to stick around longer than I need to win. You know? That's that's a story that we've seen all the time in me. So. I think it's the time. I think he's achieved everything that he's been you know, he could possibly achieve and to me this feels like the I don't really I don't feel like this is some sort of negotiation tactic from George. Well, let's not forget Georgia's an incredible businessman. So everything did feel heartfelt felt real George says, this is the end he doesn't want to end up being washed. It doesn't want to have somebody retire. He wants to retire himself. Then. Wow. All you can do is respect that. There's a shortlist of people. I don't know rocky Marciano Floyd Mayweather Lennox Lewis. We've been able to go out as champion on their own terms. I know he vacated the midway bell. But you get my point there. I think we just have to stop and give them around applause like George. We are impressed by your performance in the legacy for me. I don't mean to skip ahead questions. But it's just it's not even about the nine welterweight title defenses. Or did he crack that top three or your number one of the greatest of all time? I think there's a cheesy side his legacy that we all have to respect and this trash talking crazy era where we're not that far removed from the just bleed infancy of the sport. Here's a guy who did it his own. Way. And I don't mean, you know, I did it. My way like Conor McGregor went out there and said F the world, I mean GSP did it his own way. While always doing things the right way. And I think that really stands out in his commitment to his convictions decision making whether it was walking away in two thousand thirteen on top because he didn't like the drug testing culture because the anxiety was getting too much of him for being the champion because you've got concussed against Hendrix..
"george saint pierre" Discussed on Five Rounds with Brett Okamoto
"Was remember him being in Montreal? And saying that George saint-pierre was the most popular Canadian athlete on earth. Meaning you go to anywhere on this planet, and you know, you give people a list of famous Canadian athletes G P is the most popular one, right? The one that everyone recognizes a knows this time when when Merrill amuses still I'm not sure whistling rescue still around the had retarded both retired actually. But this created such a stir on Canadian sports talk radio. Remember, like TSN sports, all of them were talking about it saying how crazy GOP was three. Even people said, Bret Hart was more popular Canadian and more successful Canadian. I mean, there was an equated such a debate that I thought it was brilliant on Danish part because it put GOP over. And put him into that conversation. Right. Right. It may not be true. And it probably Gretzky Gretzky Gretzky Lemieux Islamia, and I would even argue bread hardest bread heart. But that was such a smart move. So, you know, I talk about how the relationship clearly deteriorated. I thought that him doing that really put GS p in that stratosphere, and they did a great job back then to push him like they put him in every opportunity possible every big card possible to make him into a star. So I think you'll see deserves a lot of credit as to when you talk about. Jeez. Legacy and how popular yeah. They'd promote at the hell out of him until until the until until things kind of deteriorate. You're right. They're they I remembered that I remember thinking, even I was as a as a fan of the sport was like was he crazy? And, you know, not even thinking about the fact this is Dana being promoted. That's what he's supposed to do is opposed to build up his guys. And but I remember thinking guys insane. That's biggest biggest piece of wash ever. But of course, what is what is talk radio. Uh-huh. All about is like somebody making some outlandish statement, and then trying to support it. And then somebody else trying to to refute it. That's what makes makes for that debate. Let's give a shout out to our sit with a stand for. That's an information stats information group Zafy at the end, right? Thank you Daniel. Sid combat. So the stats and information group hideous peon. Here's some interesting stats as far as GOP goes in just approved as how great he was. He is the most wins and title fights in UC history. That's thirteen if in fact, it is the end, which it will be the end come tomorrow, he would finish his career with thirteen straight wins and overall fights tied for the third longest streak in UFC history. How about this one towards saint-pierre win twelve known fights that went to a decision tied for the most wins by decision UC history with Diego Sanchez, and by far the most wins from decision without a loss and UC history. And that's also twelve the next closest would be Ryan Bater who went nine. No no with decision victories. Most takedown lands blinded in UFC history. Ninety GOP number one number twos. Glazed Tibo, eighty four two meters. Johnson seventy four G P is the only fighter seawall.

But on your way to the octagon how your nerves nerves always been so good. Yeah. They actually have which is kind of a little weird to me.

You know, because you shouldn't have nerves and you shouldn't be nervous. If you're you're giving everything you have, you know, that's that's first of all it's an excellent outlook. I mean, I've been in the locker room with many warriors that would that don't shed his philosophy or else that is not as as. Cool as a cucumber as you were. I mean, I've been what guys that you would never you would never know it, even George Saint Pierre. And is the one of the things that that stuck with me Macy when I was on the the ultimate fighter. They'd bring him back before you were born, but it was really tough four. And I remember George saint-pierre was talking to rain to tour, and we were we were all sitting around talking if the practice, and he was saying he was asking Randy about the nerves, you know. And Randy was reading was given an answer pretty much the way your give an answer. Like, no, I'm pretty good. You know, Georgia was a very honest guy was going in the locker room. I'm always like why can't I have a regular job? Why do this? And then he walks out the tunnel. Once he gets out there. He says it leaves him and he's good and he's happy snarling..

"So let's clear out the rosters, and let's start over again with guys that want to do this so that the rest of us can enjoy it and then we'll set up the hierarchy and we'll set up the rankings and we'll set up a championship so he could be recognized for his achievements, a guy. In a gal because get what I'm saying and let let's start over and then the good old day you used to be able to pressure a guy into it. Right. That was far to fight promotion. I call this guy offered him. He said, no, all of a sudden he'd have to come back. Oh, no, no, you misunderstood me, I'll I'll do it, although it that was the good old that now the fans have letting these guys off the hook. I guess you can say, I don't have enough time. I don't understand that at all at all because you talk to a veteran guys. Go talk to a military person. Just ask them eight a real life situation. Have you ever been over there confronted by the enemy and told him that time out, I need more time. Have you ever done that? I mean, for heaven's sake we're putting guys on scales now. I mean good for us. We're doing it the right way. Come on guy MRs weight by a few pounds, all hell breaks loose. And when I started this sport, I never even saw scale. We did not even weigh in. We were doing it wrong. It's better the way it is now don't get mistaken in my message I'm talking about, but the tough guys still showed. It up the guys that wanted to do. It still showed up. So who in the hell had their phone ring and said, no, that's the real question here. And before anybody pisses on Eubanks and the bullet or or pisses on Dana white or the promotion or and anybody involved in this, you're looking at the wrong way you need. Hey, thank you. Congratulations Eubanks for stepping into a main event at MSG, didn't see that coming. Congratulations to the bullet who's done everything right. Just had her dreams taken from she. She got the main event. She'd got the title fight. She was promised. Congratulations to that. But now let's look a little bit closer whose phone rang it who chickened out because that matters. This is a retail product. You're buying something with the level expectation of a fan, and it's not enough for the people that are selling this to us to just say it's entertainment anymore. No, it's not. It's more than that. You're cutting interviews, those interviews are promises and then as fans are partying time, not only with our time but with our money to purchase it. So you got to tell the truth. So who coward out of the fight so that when I see his neck sales pitch known as an interview, and I hear him talk about how tough he is and how bad he wants it, and always willing to sacrifice and go through anything and just needs an opportunity that I can know who the liar is. I would really, really like to know that and I feel it's my feel it is my business. So Bill made some asthma, your business, and I think that it is. I do think that it is because I haven't seen a fighter come out and give an interview and tell the truth, which is apparently if everything in the world is blowing in my direction, I'll make that walk. And if anything is not, I won't the only guy that I've ever seen tell the truth in a negative way. I have seen some legitimate tough guys. Ben aspirin comes to mind. I have seen some actual tough guys come out, tell it the way it is, but then behind closed doors, they walk the walk. I have seen that. I've never seen anybody aside from George Saint Pierre come out just tell you the truth, which isn't always great for him to fight that guy, but he seems like he's a little bit too big..

"No, to gave it to him, but that was that was the only fight I can remember going into or in a wash it. I don't care what this looks like. I don't care what happens. I said, I'm just gonna. I'm gonna do it had to do to win because there was so much riding on me at tide is not a lot of money. A lot of things. I mean, that was the one fight where I was like, I'm just going to come out there and try win this fight no matter what. And I could tell that has the same plan. You know it was just his. His was pushing me against transfer mind with stopping and take down. I'm winning. You know, I in at the end of the day after I lost first of all, I lost my title shot on that was very pressing for then I said, and I didn't even have felt like I told myself out and now that I feel myself out, I didn't even get pail you know. So I was like, man, I'm never going to do this again because I feel good about me even if I had a one, I think I wouldn't have felt that good about how I had like sell out to do it, but then the I didn't even win the stuff. He was just like it was the worst of everything. I got nothing positive on it. Very, he was deaf is a low point in my my citing career is like, man, I know I'm, I'm not doing this anymore. Fight of this anymore. I'm not gonna. I'm not gonna continue in the sport because it doesn't make me feel good about myself. So it was actually the first time I fought Matt, sir, and I didn't even get to win. So we only have one minute left and now this spawned yet. Another question when Matt did go on and then fight George saint-pierre. He knocked them out. Did you get more caught up in like man that could have been me, or will you have you for Matt because I know it seemed to us like you are very cool with Matt. You know, through the season through the fight to do you remember how you felt when that happened? You know what I was so happy for Matt. It took me remember. I was I was at a town bribes driving back. It was there that night before I put two together and said that what could have been me. But I mean, that's one of my favorite guys in the sport if has ever hung out with these. He's a great guy. So you know, I was so happy for, especially nobody thought he could do it and everybody thought chance of eating this guy number. So nannies. He's got some power. You. Is it gonna?

"george saint pierre" Discussed on You're Welcome! With Chael Sonnen
"And for that, you're welcome. What's happening guys, happy Friday, and thank you for joining another special episode of your welcome. You know, last couple of days I it's been like forty, eight hours of call outs. Let's start with your Saint Pierre. George Saint Pierre says he'd like to fight the winner of could even Connor. Now. That's interesting for a couple of reasons. I often tastic course huge fight. Yeah, of course. I think it'd be huger should Connor win, and it was a Connor George. Saint Pierre title fight. I also think that that's likely the only scenario where this fight happens. I think that George, I'm guessing here. I think that George likes that match better. I think he also understands the magnitude and I think he understands the legacy. Here's the resistance to offer you the other side of this on I on first glance you're looking at go, well, yeah, of course. If you're Dana white sign that fight, but there's a couple of moving parts because you are also understand that if if George was to come down to one fifty five for a title fight, he's going to grab the belt and he's gonna walk away. Way. I don't have a big problem with that. I just know that some people do and I think that that bothers the UFC I think for a fight of that magnitude and somebody is upfront and open his George saint-pierre to say, look, here's what might goal is whether I cheated or not. This is what I'm going to try to do. I don't have a problem with it. I liked the disclosure as a fan. It doesn't piss me off as a fan sometimes when I get blindsided by that or surprised, I feel a little bit duped and I can be irritated by that with George saint-pierre. He did that with bist ping. Dana insisted George would defend budget. George was a little more straight up about it soon as he won the belt. It was within two weeks. He handed it back. Nobody else would ever hand about back ever. It's never happened. You wait until your strip, you run that you run the promos. You're run yourself with a bell that helps your sponsorship money. It helps with attention George saint-pierre handed it back..
"george saint pierre" Discussed on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani
"He's better than the way remember. And that's not the same thing as functional strength. But other thing, if you're wrestling somebody in your bigger than them, I can say this 'cause I'm bigger than most people I often have a up tune to train within a training environment. The major problem I often have with the smaller guys as their speed, they're able to get in on my hips and legs. Now have some control there when I'm stronger and bigger, but the speed can give me a problem. Maybe maybe till is bigger. A bet you at least early woodley's a lot faster. Yeah. Yeah, I think so too. All right. Any moral, how many, how much time do we have more minutes? Okay, one or two question. Let's see. Let's see how this Okay, cool. cool. They what's going on new condemn. This is Dylan from New Jersey question about who does win over Dimitrius Johnston on on Saturday night. I mean, it seems to me that wrestling is probably the most important arts, a really master. You could see that was arresting dominant victory and you look at all these great champions George Saint Pierre perfecting his wrestling. John Jones wasn't the national champion in in college. He was very good wrestler, so it seems like wrestling is probably the best art form to to master to be an elite fighter. What do you think about this? Thanks. Love the show. So Daniel core MIR and hudo, right? George in peer, you know, all a lot of the greats have been really great at wrestling is wrestling the most dominant. The most important martial art intimate. It depends on one's perspective. I defer to my as he often calls us my brother from another mother, dean, Thomas, we are not related, but. He had made a point on Twitter, I think yesterday or two days ago, whatever it was saying that, well, he didn't know if wrestling by itself was the best skill set and there's some debate about that bomb, but the guys who come from wrestling right? And you've got an, we're talking about relatively elite or outright elite invites, you know, Olympic caliber division one or division. Two even guys are just were grinding out in wrestling rooms for their adolescent and teenage years. They just come out different. They can be trained quickly. They have really worked on their bodies to make it very adaptable to training different kinds and varieties. That again, you also have these takedown skills which are important. You can learn jitsu, but quicker you're more teachable your coach -able. You're ready for a hard training. You just have a certain mentality and physicality, and there's just a certain degree of carryover that comes from. That that jujitsu, you know, this man, sometimes you get rooms and it can be lazy is not the right word, but relaxed have some fun. Everyone's fist-bump in and high five and doing the shock and all that bullshit. Right. And in wrestling rooms, man, you know, it's a great point to me about wrestling one time, right? As I went to watch, I saw the big match years ago. I went in college when they were in college, and I saw David Taylor versus Kyle Dake, and that was like in college at the time. And that was, you know, that was Jordan versus LeBron or something. Right? And and he, I noticed something when the match was over, they shook hands, but like super reluctantly, like, you know, like you had to just by virtue of the rules, but there was no custom to it. Okay. And he goes, you ever noticed that the end of wrestling matches these guys barely shake hands and acknowledge each other. And the end of a really tough fight guys are high five and hugging, there's a certain degree of spirituality Yellen college. Sling, they don't have none of that. They don't do any of that. Dog are warriors their warriors out there. So you take somebody from that environment. You've already got carry over skills which by way on its own Danny might be argument to make that they're the best, but you got all the other attributes as well that come over where these guys are hard nosed as we say in the Marine Corps, hard chargers, man. Yeah, I didn't. I didn't know. I haven't heard of dean Thomas state take, but that's being Thomas by the way, an underrated follow, but I will follow him now after the show. But yeah, that's something that that I had in my mind..
