"habib magomedov" Discussed on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani

"Big news dropped earlier today on the website. Our very own damon martin confirm with multiple sources. That the lung rumored and discuss vibe between conor mcgregor and dust emporia as of now it is set for. Ufc two fifty seven on january. Twenty third in las vegas. It'll be mcgregor's first fight since his forty second finish. Donald cerrone at ufc. Two forty six back in january poi- bounce back from his loss to hub even amalgamated off in september. Two thousand nineteen with a decision. Whatever dan hooker and one of the best fights of two thousand twenty back. In june the road to get to the despite was quite interesting especially considering that mcgregor had an retirement earlier this year because he wanted to be very active he wanted to have his quote unquote season and fight at least three times in twenty twenty obviously the world was rocked with the covid nineteen pandemic and he wasn't able to book a fight. He even asked for a fight with diego sanchez in release screenshots of conversation with dana white talks about possibly book in a fight with just engage in july but again the pandemic shut things down and the frustrations only continued poor. Ea was in. Talks to fight tony ferguson. At ufc two fifty four last month but those talks fell through which left pori a bit frustrated in his own right and that led to mcgregor calling for a charity sparring match with poor in ireland. You've seen nixed that idea. Because why not have it in their very own octagon and finally here we are. This is of course a rematch from their first meeting at ufc. One seventy eight back in september. Two thousand fourteen. This is a feather way out and mcgregor stopped portray in just under two minutes in one thing. That's important to note while you have c two fifty. Seven is the plan mcgregor's hoping that the fight can happen a month prior at ufc two fifty six on december twelfth. Now that the originally scheduled main event between a man and nunez and megan anderson has been scrapped so a lot to unpack. Here let us bring in the man who brought this news to the world moments ago from fighting dot com damon. Martin damon big news today. The fight is finally done. Got gotta confirm super early this morning. Huge fight to kick off the twenty twenty one pay per view calendar year so to give the folks a peek behind the curtain. When did you finally get to that final. I or cross that final t in regards to this fight being a done deal it was about. I would say about five. Am eastern time. Last night. i got to the final text message about confirmation a long story short. You know basically both guys that agreed on the fight. It wasn't really a matter of them. Not wanting the fire date or anything. It was really just a matter of getting a deal done on side. Conner had verbally agreed and it had been reported earlier this week. You know basically that was the last hurdle to to to clear so to speak and from my understanding All sides agreed as of last night. The only caveat of course it's connor still wants to fight earlier and obviously it wouldn't be an issue had to fight between amanda nunez and megan anderson not been canceled. You know twenty four hours ago so for my understanding connor would still very much like to fight in december. I don't think the you'll have been don that. I know that the contracts that connor and dustin or she dustin had agreed to was for january twenty third so unless unless this becomes just a a a huge problem for the date which i don't think it will be. We're gonna see conor mcgregor. Pori january twenty third. And it's going to be a big one. A question that i've i've seen a lot is sort of what's at stake here. Of course i mean this is a huge fight a lot of spotlight but her habib magomedov announces his retirement following his win over. Justin gave fifty four dana. White says habib is still the champion still the number one ranked pound for pound fighter in the and then earlier today. Habib's manager ali abdalaziz tweets out simply thirty. No in what that means is anybody's guess at the moment but as of right now there's going to be any kind of championship or interim belts or anything like that attached to this fight right. No nothing i've heard. And i don't think that's really a surprise today. This fight doesn't need a title. I mean i'm sure connor and would love to compete for one but dozens already been an interim champion. And he's gotta know. I mean they both got noted. Even winning here doesn't guarantee they're going to get a b. But i think everyone kind of agrees of habib is coming back for thirty. Know he's probably gonna push really hard for george saint-pierre fight george watson be wants. It seems like that's the no brainer and if it is he'll beams final fight of his career. He can go out in that way with a very big fight. It doesn't really affect anything else but on car. Sure they'd still like to promote him as lightweight champion. So this is just a supervisor should fiber on main event. And that's the other reason why that december twelve car probably wouldn't happen because right now algebra in sterling and peter yonder still on that card and if conner is on that car. He's headlining and it would be. I'll say it just serves us to the title fight but it would be desire to have a title fight behind non title fight in a per view. Even though it is conor mcgregor. So i think ultimately it's going to be january twenty third. It's going to be a non title lightweight fight and obviously the winner will be right there in line for the title shot either against a be which again as i said. I don't think that would happen or against some other fighter to crowning new champion wants hubby is actually gone which could be a long ways away. We got remember. I mean even if a b. store saint-pierre hypothetically that probably wouldn't happen until deep deep deep in the next year so we may not get a clearer picture on the lightweight title until the latter half of twenty twenty one. Yeah it's interesting because of poor wins. I mean you get the connor rub. Which is absolutely massive. And if you're connor you just have so many different options you can do something fifty five. They could create some sort of title for him with the power that he has he can go up to one seventy and do some damage there so i guess like this obviously has a big meaning poor because he's looking to evangelize pluses massive opportunity because the superstardom economy gregor has just blown up since then. Where do you think the winner does go from here in your opinion in this absolutely massive fight because with habib being the champion and like you said he may not fight 'til deep next year. What happens then because connor wants to stay active. I don't know if he can. Yeah there's an interesting question. And i think it really comes down to what else happens in this division between now and then i mean if beep comes back and he fights george saint-pierre two hundred and fifty five pounds and it's for a title. That's a whole other story. But i don't know that's necessarily the case in georgia. Did his interview started doing some interviews last month. He said he would probably prefer like a catch weight fight. I think we both know the size and magnitude of habib versus. Gsp there doesn't need to be a title on the line. Just like with connor and pori. But again i think they'll still wanna promote habib champion going thirty and know But i think it depends on how this week plays out. I think it also depends on other vision. Michael chandler is. I'm sure everyone saw twitter. Is calling for a fight against tony ferguson. It's probably the fight that makes sense raised first. Ufc fight and for tony. Coming back from the justin. Gay chief i but we still h e out there. We got the at hooker out there. We got a big fight this weekend. Now between paul elder hartfield sanyo's which could potentially put another person into that mix. So i think the reality is if conner wants to stay really busy and he whiz then you can easily book him against gauging that it's still a massive fight with or without a toddler on the line and you move forward from there if a b. is going to fight earlier that we expect and maybe he still has the title and he can get through. Gsp fight then maybe o'connor stays outweighs for the title fight. I think a lot of moving parts here really going to determine what happens you know for these guys after january twenty third. I love this fight. And i'm glad this rematch is actually happening. But if if i asked you like july august after poor. Dan hooker if his next fight would be against conor mcgregor. How surprised are you now that this is the direction they went like. I think we saw the developments that were. We're not surprised this point. But if i ask you this question in july maybe early august. Would you think that there's a good chance of this rematch. Happening in both of their next fights not really.

"habib magomedov" Discussed on First Take

"And if you WANNA play that non shootout game the pats are built that way with Cam Newton. So what are the chiefs do exactly they should be favored against the Patriots but I think either way it's becomes a shootout and obviously favors the chiefs but that's not the kind of game they want and the kind of game they do want Belichick specializes in especially with this personnel I think the Patriots if they make the playoffs can be a problem well, I, don't think that's Farfetched considering the fact that the toughest games patch homes has had his career basically against Bill Belichick even though he just lost to the Las Vegas rate is and obviously they needed to run the football last night against the buffalo bills. But in the end I'm looking at it and I don't think the chiefs can be stopped in the AFC because of the potency of this run game. When you look at the fact that they were, you know they rushed for two hundred and forty five yards. Lear had one, hundred, sixty yards, twenty six carries but they rushed for two hundred and forty five yards more importantly did a third worst defense against the run. Yet they pretty much held buffalo and check with every single terry those boys. So I'm looking at it from the standpoint that you're not you can. You can contain them to some degree, but eventually, they're going to explode the tyreek hill to Samuel Some Coal Hartman the travis kills he's of the world. We're Patrick Mahomes, and then you have cloud to lear and then on top of that Oh, you're getting ready to add levy on bell who obviously is that hybrid do this is how he wanted to be paid. He wanted to be paid as a hybrid dude because he did it all for the Pittsburgh steelers before forcing his way out of the steel city and ended up being With the New, York jets and unfortunately got contaminated by gays who doesn't know what the hell he's doing doesn't deserve to be the head coach never deserved to be coaching that franchise and as a result, it's sullied his career to some degree because it left. So many question never gave him a real offensive line never gave him any real receivers but Sam Donald to target so you can take pressure off the running game and people didn't have to load the all day. We had all of that stuff going on. So now he's motivated he's going to be set free he's going to be used sparingly because obviously it's do duties with him and cloud there with the backfield with patch. Football plus you can throw it to your tight end plus you've got wideouts plus you've got. To spread the field and stuff like that, and you have a defense that's top three against the pass, which is the Kansas City chiefs and a top ten defense. They would number seven last year number nine this year in the end I. Think when you look at the multitude of weapons, you must ask yourself this question can check pull something off. That's plausible Tennessee because they're suspect gets run. You Got Derrick Henry the way Tennessee is is rolling. You can't summarily dismiss them, and of course, the steelers are coming but we already saw what they did to the Ravens in the end. I'm still going to say it's the chiefs. Agree, it is the chiefs. You talk about. Well, let me let me get back to the Patriots for a second ballot not scared to play six defensive backs. He'll do it. He just did it. Right so he he really is blanketing the field with speedy guys and that makes it turns it into the kind of game that he knows how to win especially with a guy like. Cam Newton. Now in terms of the run, you talking about the titans and this is a different season and the chiefs defense to meet other look exactly the same as last year. But remember the team that eventually stopped Derrick Henry in the playoffs it was the chiefs run defense surprisingly derrick. Henry, was running everybody till he got to the chiefs and so. I look at the titans the titans are live there couple of other obviously, the steelers are live because because their run defense also and they have rothlisburger I still think it's Bella chick and Cam assuming cameras better than we've seen him recently right that was rushed and he's recovering from cove, and all that stuff assuming cam is what we saw the first couple of weeks of the season. The chiefs should win the super bowl this year if there's someone in the AFC to stop them I'm telling you it's bill village. Did you think the PATS WHEN AFC? East I do I think the Pats win the AFC over the bills I think they I think that there live in the playoffs it all depends on Cam Newton, his health, and his progress through the season and belief is that cam new and needs a full year. I don't think this year is the year that you're going to pick him to knock off the chiefs I just don't see it. He's he's gotta be. I mean he's got a quarterback better than he has recently for bad game wasn't anomaly obviously with the broncos. UFC to four down this weekend headlined by arguably the best pound for pound fighter in the world the lightweight Champ Habib Magomedov who joins us now on I take thank you so much for being with us this morning and I just want to start with that many believe that you are the best in the sport right now what more do you need to be to accomplish to be the best ever? I think I. Need a couple more fights I. think a couple of. Great legs. You think thank you for being on the show when you talk about this next fight versus engaging. This guy seems to be a knockout artist had an impressive resume not as impressive yours. Are you concerned about anything specifically going up against this guy compared to the other fights you've had in your career. Knows Justin is very interesting fighting. Is. Very exciting. Invoke. His last fight. I was very impressed. It was a great performance. You know how to Whistle Hampton Gig to find good experience by the same time. I feel. I'M GONNA make entire them and I'm going to finish this guy. This is in my opinion you know about I'm ready for all rounds. You know all five Ron war by the Michael on this fire. Make, confided and the choke him out. B If you win and your favorite to do. So you've never lost twenty, eight eighteen times inside the distance that's pound for pound fighter in the world trying as you said to be the best ever you need a few more fights. To Cement your legacy you feel if you win and in fact, Conor McGregor fights. And beats him or you interested in that rematch? No I don't like world if if if. Certain to just sleep. You're planning on winning this fight, right? And your favorite to do. So I assume if you need some more fights for your legacy that would include defending your title the logical. Contender would be the winner of McGregor in Puri. So so let me ask it a different way. Would you have any objection to fighting McGregor again if he puts himself in position to challenge for your title? You know about both of them I finished both of them and the. In dominant position, you know dominant with dominant performance and I'm not interesting on both of the these guys because I need something new. I need something new blood new energy now by just engaging, give me new new motivation in Israel deal right now he's interim Chen is very tough guy and if if I think about the both that's an corner, they don't give me go daniel they don't give me motivation fight for what for what for my legacy I already put these guys on my. On my desk now, I ordered the bid them everything finished with these guys..

"But Yeah I think I think he do Silvo you do rockall Give him fights with guys with names and and solid for what it is. I'm I think both those are good ideas and Antonio. Carlos. Junior shoe face. Now? So. Much real. Belief in Wiedeman. Wow. After a win Casey he won tonight hundred. That's I. Don't think. I just literally WanNa see the Anderson over fight Yeah Oh as Mike but why? Why why why do you WANNA see why fight? Silva. Three which would do you WanNa see enough I other than it gives a nice paycheck both guys. Because it's a fun fight they both of them. Deserve. Fun Fights that make him a lot of money to get a lot eyeballs on them just really. Benefits both guys if if Chris Wyman goes out there and fight Martin Matori that does nothing for Chris wideman outside of beating someone ranks. Ranked below him getting another paycheck if Margaret Tori beats and that's a big thing from Tori, if he'd be if Chris why aunt Silva that's a win over a bigger name probably more money on a bigger stage I think that's the fight that makes the most sense for Wiedeman and then Anderson Silva needs a guy and they're not gonNA give anyone in the top fifteen especially up coming contender them the only one on the top of. To fight outside of Wiedeman, probably be gasoline because they were booked already in that China card before and civic pulled down business filled in I. Remember one that was like two weeks after being lost GSP. Dowd be the only on the top ten of top fifteen. I would want to find so but Anderson's insisted on finding again I think why are good fight you fight Anthony Pettus which yeah deals whilst. We're just like still like the most of all them actually I still like that's just a freak show by like it like. Why not? Why? Versus Darren tell or anything like that? Like a Matt what if? I watched that. So would I abo- Darren sales like Blues neons like eleven months Casey. Why don't what if they books and versus Luke rockall I wouldn't made that fight either like they never fought they were both champions the simultaneously at one point in their careers. So make that fight and then you could give wiedeman someone at the top fifteen is a will. Do you want me to be the buzzkill here and tell you Mike had to spoil onto a should I save to the next one I want to be the buzzkill here still gonNA listen because here's here's. Here's a and will elaborate more in this. If I go with this, here's a sexy pick for you. Chris Wideman Christoph Jaakko? Choke on that. Got It. Jim. Billion Eight. I'm just saying, I want him to step back. So I if it doesn't get cool phineas Silva. All this trouble costume in the rankings. Christoph Jaakko I also don't hate if you're hall loses to Romero if they do a rematch between Wiedeman, hall is they fought on the regional up in New York I would hate that fight either now that they're both in the this year he beat him is true. He debate you're saying like Bela Nico Montana as a rematch, and that's still sense. So I like I like seeing rematches in the UFC that happened on regional fight I really like those kind of those matchups a lot so I would hate that either. As posed a young's the animated fan wants to see rob format, but you Wiedeman Akzo is it really a rubber match though it's a third fight? Batch it's a fight. We put the order no. Without a rubber match above Anderson Civil Wins Imagine. That was the second fight. Yeah it's a you know. We, we try to will it. Number One, one, A. May Mike don't make sense though makes. Don't make sense but if I was like Jaakko or or Margaret Tori. Renting A and putting banners in the sky going fight me Wiedeman. WHO's the Wiedeman? Guys, it'd be why are elite elite guys so best of the best of the Best Jockeys Romero's you know those guys who beat Wymondham who's Aussies so yeah, I'm Jaakko. Vittoria type yeah, you you go to go to South Carolina you find out where his new home isn't you him because that's the only way. That's the only way that you have see will get behind. You gotTa beat that name so Yeah I mean he's got more options on maybe we thought. Now we're doing we're doing 'cause Wyman post by shows, right What else again Sorry. Martin. Perfect I'd watch it. I don't want to see by Margaret Vittori. Or teen they're both actual contenders. Stuff makes more sense. I don't WanNa. See Chris Widened Fight Martin. Vittori. But you know how do you see works if one guy outside of the rankings beats the number eleven guy guests is the number eleven guy we just jump right up there. So didn't becomes a top eleven guy more than likely come Tuesday morning. Only, think some questions. Future fights. Why not get to fifty two coming up on Saturday we got like the American red. Predictions on GARBRANDT and GAITO. I'm hoping it's not another. TJ. But it's hard not to think that because cody's JEN hasn't held up in the past, let alone cutting another ten pounds. This is kind of a tough one for me to answer because. November is a long way away and. I just I. It's one of those fights where I'm like, yeah, I see it announced You know it's reported and Dana White's told BRAC Komodo and stuff. But unlike until we get there, it tells like Halloween and both these guys are still healthy and ready to go I'm just not sold or bought into it yet but let's say for this for the sake of the question Ak, what do you think Garbrandt Figueredo guys are healthy Garbrandt can make one, twenty, five no problem. All things are well, how do you see this playing out sorry Sandiford I. Think it absolutely is another TJ situation because the thing remember about the dillashaw pseudo is pseudo didn't really have the reputation of. Being. Kind of like this quick strike nocco artists but but he he certainly was rapidly improving had power that people didn't know about Figueredo is a quick straight knockout artist. Everyone knows how deadly this guy's hands are as insanely powerful for for one twenty fiber. So I I don't think takes them to catch cody's gin and put them down. So obvious, I'm leaning towards the champ here. I'm not saying it's it's not it's not you know reasonable match up on paper but I I do think it would end in first or second round knockout and I think Figueredo I think as meeting champion for while he's she's really really good and I think he's exactly the kind of guy that. Honestly. I. Would Keep Our ran away from trying to preserve that Chin but they want the name value they want to save the flyweight division again. So that's I guess that's how it's GonNa. Go but I I would go figure it out by knockout. In Davison as well. But. That's just where I am on August eighth or still three months away from this thing ozone. Would you think the I can't even look past like through weeks 'cause like you talk about that's all the way November this net it's all the way in November in two thousand and twenty in the middle of a pandemic remember when Gilbert Burns is supposed by Kamara who's been. Number, one that fight happened I don't because one of them got covid. So yeah, I'm not. I'm not even gonNA think about fight in November with especially with two fighters. One fires not even fought in that way one fighters missed weight before a million times and they're gonNA pandemic asked me on Halloween and I'll give you an answer. All right fair enough love that fight is going to happen. Korean Zombie. Is GonNa Fight Brian Ortega. Habib Magomedov, will someday fight. Tony. Ferguson. These things will and forgot that Johnnie Walker Nikita crawl was getting into the knockout. Walker Cross going to knock up Derek Lewis gone into will be a classic fighting for the vacant heavyweight title. I decreed all these things will happen and so it shelby..

"For all of us so please do support modell because they support us now like I said at the top. It's been a very busy day here at my home. I started the day interviewing triple H. Paul affects the king of Kings. The Game Executive Vice President of global talent strategy and development of world wrestling entertainment talked about putting on Wrestlemainia. Thirty six this weekend the challenges involved the critics and even what it was like asking Vincent Man if he can marry his daughter to great conversation. He's a great guy. I'm looking forward to sharing that with you. All later in the program after that I spoke to the reigning defending you have see heavyweight champion. He has been in the news as because he is a part time firefighter and he talked to him about working as a first responder during this pandemic and what is life has been like and also how is is is feeling what. It all means for his timeline. So stay tuned for that but I I just wrapped up an exclusive interview with Tony Ferguson. The UFC superstar who was set to fight. Habibur Manga made off on April eighteenth. I it was in Brooklyn of course and then it was moved to parts. Unknown this is the fifth time that they've been booked. We all know the story but earlier today. We got official confirmation from Habib Magomedov that he would not be competing on the card. He is back home in Dagestan Russia and when he did his instagram live on Monday. There was I guess. Some sort of hope that perhaps not be able to get out of Russia. And perhaps he'd be able to do this fight somewhere else baby overseas back here in America. Of course he did his training camp in San Jose. California at the American Kickboxing Academy but Earlier today he posted on his granted. He was out of the fight that he would not be competing. In fact I have the entire statement here. I could read it for you all in case you missed it here. It is courtesy of Habib Dumaguete. He says quote staying home in quarantine and reading the reaction of people to the situation around my fight. It turns out that the whole world should be in quarantine governments of all countries famous people around the world urge people to follow all safety requirements in order to limit the spread of the disease to save people and Habib. He's referring to himself in. The third person is the only one relieved of all obligations and must demonstrate free will and train flying around the world for the sake of the fight question mark. I understand everything and I'm definitely upset more than you cancel the fight probably like all others at many plants after the fight but I can't control it all. The greatest countries in the largest companies of our time are shocked by what is happening every day. The situation changes unpredictably but Habib still has to fight. Is that what you are saying? Take care of yourself and put yourself in my shoes. So there's the confirmation from hubby dramatic made off that he is out that the fight isn't going to happen but it appears as of right now. Tony Ferguson is willing to keep going however he doesn't have an opponent just yet as I reported earlier this week just to gauge. He has been presented to him. But there's no location for this event. Ufc Two forty nine. He is waiting in any event. I spoke to Tony Ferguson. About the whole situation about Habib not being able to fight about the next steps. Here's that conversation Tony. Thank you very much for the time. I really appreciate it. Let's get right into it. What was your reaction when you found out that wouldn't be able to fight a UFC?

That's actually going through some hard times a little bit different. Of course a little bit pissed. He acting opportunity stay here or he got. He has a chance to be able to come back before the Buddhist close in Russia decided to go back and finish. This guy's not wanNA fight and scared. He title that he was doing his training camp in San Jose. When you heard that he had left San Jose went home. Did you know back then that the fight was offer? Where you're holding out. Hope that there was a way that he'd be able to come back or perhaps that you would be able to go and do this fight overseas. I would say either. Orban a void unless the circumstances are completely different. The five guests could be back. This is the guy just wants to fight this fight. There's no I wanted to do you know. Obviously he's here's back home Dagestan. It is what you gotta do but not in the exact same thing. I grew up. See tool nine. Knew that it wasn't cutting way but instead it already died. He couldn't wait focusing and doing everything else like that. He's running away. Ram what he could do to help. Save this car. He didn't WanNa take any chances of off.

"habib magomedov" Discussed on Five Rounds with Brett Okamoto

"Actually going to happen but for the sake of this conversation how do you how do you justify taking this away from the Annette words? How do you justify that the man earned that spot? How can you say all right? We're sorry you know there was a pandemic but hey we're going to go in. This direction is a bigger fight. How do you do that to the guy so it would be fortunate? Let me look at the rankings. Here as currently standing the UFC rankings. Have Comorros Mattis champion. Tiredly number one Koby Covington number two for him as well number three Liane Edwards number four. Go all the way to five. We have Stephen Thompson. Five Gilbert Burns six. Is it not reasonable to potentially put together a Gilbert Burns versus John Edwards fight as a potential number one contender fight or something along those lines and still book? Colby COVINGTON entire now. Now it's all right if you're not going to give him Tyron Woodley you gotta give him a title shot. The man has done enough eight again and I should clarify is not an indictment on Leon Edwards as a fighter that I believe that Ultimately that fight will not be made again. It's because I think that there's so much heat between Tyron Woodley in Kobe Covington. I just think it's undeniable is a fight that should have been made along ago and now there's an opportunity to to get. This is a reset but certainly I wouldn't argue with you said Liane Edwards is next to fight for the title. I don't have a problem with that. I think he's earned it. He deserves it. I think he's as Guys listed But you cannot pass another opportunity to do call becoming versus Tyron Woodley. You just can't. It's bad business. I think I feel like Covington versus would they will always be there. Although I could be wrong. And and it would be it would be heartbreaking takeaway that opportunity from Leon words especially. I mean if they're if they're looking to do another main event at some point in London Edwards will make all the sense in the world because he he's in England residencies lived there for very long time. You reps England so I if they do want to run back that type of a fight card it should be hours in a prominent fight against Woodley someone like that. I just don't know what what the UFC schedule is. Even GonNa look like you know in a few months but let's be honest really suck if Edwards had that opportunity taken from him because of eight global pandemic and the UFC went another direction. But era I understand what you're saying I it is. It is reasonable. Ufc could do that to put on. The I guess hotter fight between Covington. I would point two things one. How many of those. They'll always be there. Fights just never end up materializing like when you have the opportunity you have to capitalize you have to take the fights and number two. I think we're forgetting that this this whole dance requires two people. It's not a Leon Edward versus. Who Do you WANNA fight situation tire? Woodley himself doesn't open to fight Edwards anymore wants to fight goal becoming did in fact saying that's the only name I wanna hear so at a certain point you have to go with what's reasonable and it seems like all signs are pointing toward tyron. Woodley versus call becoming. If you're asking me what does Leon Edwards deserve? Leeann Edwards deserves to fight for the title. Quite frankly the guy is very very good has beaten a very high level of and I think he deserves to fight for the title. If you're asking me what's going to happen? And what the fight to be made is it's one hundred percent tyron woodley versus call becoming so. This brings up a very interesting topic to discuss. Because I think you're onto something on your that's why I think idea. These cards in fights are being critical. Postponed is somewhat disingenuous. Because I do think if in fact it's going to be a while before these games. These fights resume and these sporting events resume. They are going to shuffle the day because when you consider the amount of income loss momentum laws you're GONNA WANNA come out with a bang and so I think if in fact Abib and Ferguson. Don't fight on April eighteenth. Who's to say that you know the fights don't return until September and then at that point Ramadan's over everything's good. We don't just put together hub even connor because look that does two million pay per views that we need money right away. So you're a hundred percent right. There is a chance that the Lien Edwards is of the world get screwed. There is a chance at the Tony. Ferguson of the world gets screwed because I suspect that when things get back to normal hopefully sooner rather than later but if it isn't a while they're going to try to put together the biggest fights possible and at that point. Everyone's probably healthy. Everyone's probably ready to go. Everyone's probably itching to go. Everyone's GonNa WanNA fight 'cause they're gonNA WANNA make money. There's a good chance that not just Edwards versus Woodley but versus Ferguson gets scrapped in favor of a quote unquote sexier fight. So you're onto something air you out there. Don't you dare do you think I'm wrong on his L. It's exactly the same situation. Where given the opportunity if plans fall apart and I and I think it's important to clarify that. We certainly believe that this fight was intended to go on no matter what this is entirely related to to the corona virus pandemic. It has nothing to do with shuffling the deck just for the sake of it but because of this opportunity because of this reset. I do think that the big fights have to be made. Now I think Tony and Habib is one. I don't know I just can't even talk about that. I can't even put that out there. Eric you know that new area was just applying your own logic to the Nurmamedov Ferguson. Fight and he's not wrong. You're not wrong I could see. Ufc doing that. They could be extremely aggressive going. After the biggest possible fights that will make the most money because everyone is going to be losing money. You know during this period. Downtime I mean everyone not just the the entire country another question is when the UFC gets back and running. Pay Per views will people in this country. Have enough money to even pay for that type of thing. I mean there's so many things that we're not. Even you know considering that that you know so many factors play here outside combat sports. It's I feel like I'm kind of struggling to find the words because that's kind of where my brain is that right now. I'm just Kinda struggling to figure out how this is going to happen and how it could shape the future of sports that we that we love so much. Yeah I do have to say yes. My own logic is being applied there. And I'm scared of the potential outcome of Tony and Habib not happening but the other part of what I said was that there's two people in this dance. Clearly conor McGregor wants fight with Habib Magomedov Habib her Mogomedov and his manager. Elliot Disease Have Long said that unless Conor McGregor faces just He will not fight him. Unless conor McGregor works his way back up he will not fight him. So if Habib and his manager are keeping their word the potential for that Tony Versus Hubby. Fight to me still feels like the one that they will move forward with But there's a I'm sure a boatload of cash that they could throw it Habib to do the connor fight and he'd have to think long and hard about it. You make legitimate point New York Rick Legitimate. So as of right now. Thank you for that mark as of right now Wednesday afternoon. We're recording this They are working on trying to book that flight somewhere else than they do want. That fight happened on April. Eighteenth that's like the number one priority. They're working around the clock to figure that out now on Monday. Usc President Dana White said on sportscenter. That there's a chance that the fight happens. Overseas International Location of course was supposed to happen in Brooklyn on April team. Barclay Center near extent led a commission today ruling that out and we all knew that that was going to happen. It's probably not going to happen in Las Vegas as well so that look at international locations and it seems like the sheriff's bed is an international location a Abubakar's father saying recently that The Middle East could be an option. Abu Dhabi Dubai. Now there's so many questions markets than saying I'll show long. Is it just a one fight card? Is it a pay per view? Is it on television if it's the full card? How are they getting everyone over there? ORNAMENT. How are they getting on the plane? How are they gonNA put the event? Will there be fans in attendance. Where's this going to be? Who's going to host the so many questions to kind of make your head spin but let's just focus on this particular fight and let's focus on the idea of this particular fight happening in the Middle East. Let's just say dob your do by near. If you're Tony Ferguson and I know you're trying to be a good soldier you WANNA get paid. I know you want this to happen. You want to be the champion. You have reservations about fighting Abu Dhabi or Dubai. Let's be honest. Made off is royalty there. He's treated like royalty. We saw how is treated in in September when he finds US Eupohria. Is that unfair for Tony Ferguson? To put it there would you say no. If you're Tony Ferguson. Tony Ferguson. Does dodds strike me as the type of guy to let that influence the decision. I certainly think you campaign for it not to happen there but I think the reality is if that's how you're getting your title shot and I think we have acknowledged that Habib is the champion not Tony if that's how you're getting your title shot and that's the only opportunity to do. They've exploring options in the United States in. It's not going to happen. I think at a certain point you have to relent. Kind of just go. Full steam ahead into that So yeah I mean I think it's a point where you try to try to for whatever the best Homefield advantage. You can is but if that's ultimately what what the reality is. That's what you're left with. I would take it is that your phone is knowing text messages. I can neither confirm nor deny. No one's more annoying to be around in Europe for some reason gets annoying sound every time he gets Any kind of notification horrible mark. I understand that you spoke to have your Mendez at the Co head coach if you will for Habib among medoff ABC's father very much influence on his career. What did he have to say about the training and about the prospects of fighting April again? Another thing that's being discussed is. How are these guys? Get a train for this fight if you wanted to fight if you want them to be at their best we. WanNa see the best of even the best Tony Ferguson. But everything shut down around them. Is that even fair to them to have them fight? On April Eighteenth said so how your Mendez told me earlier today that they're trying to keep a similar schedule? They're trying to stay as normal as they possibly can in very abnormal times so Habib Habib been training every day. Two hours a day as you normally would Aka in San Jose however. He's the only one training there. There's no one else in the gym. The Gym is closed. Twenty two hours a day and.

"Let's touch on a couple years from now. We'll get out of here all right. So did you see Max Kellerman interviewing John cajones on. I Take I did and I was actually kind of blown away by John handled himself. Well right yeah. He gave his answers where he still. Oh clown but he didn't go over the top and like punk somebody which he's more than really he can if he wants to because he's already accepted Arab. Have you want to be the bad guy. I'll be the right guy but it seems like he's still wants to be the good guy and honestly he's been on a decent run. Now this Graham thing is GonNa go away because you saw this kind of changed just a little bit of you know the bar that that so. I don't think that's going to be a problem. He hasn't been in any trouble. He's been active title. Defenses have been one after the other had some pretty good fights including that split decision win over the Agua Santos thous- pretty interesting. But when he went on I take take he was asked a little bit about Conrad and Habibur Mogomedov and is answers. Were good I liked them. Basically paraphrase with Conor McGregor. He was asked you know. I think it's the duty of any mainstream media. Just throw Connor's his name out there. Because of the popularity of Conor McGregor but in reality John kept the real. He's something along the lines of look when everyone's sitting around talking in the barbershop. He's it's really not gonNA come up in the goat talk Mo only if you say but what about the gate that he brought the pet the masses of people the pave. Yeah Yeah Okay that is. That's what's he got himself some Cao's over some legends champ champ everything but no title defences been away for a while. He hasn't racked up those numbers that we are quoting earlier. Josie Aldo had seven titled Defenses. George saint-pierre had nine title defences Anderson Silva had ten to meech. Johnson had ten John Jones. I've had eight. All those ink. Consecutive goes the won the title and then defended it that many amounts of times John Jones of course came back and got another two. That's why he's at and Conrad Zach. Had none of that. You know what I mean and barbershop. Talk means expert talk because those are the people that sit around and obsess over sports. You know what I mean so John Jones Jones is not wrong. You know what it reminded me a lot of that. 'cause I thought John did great. I thought his answers were great He still had a little bit of that. Swag with a little. A bit of the laughing and stuff But I thought overall he did great but what it reminded me of when he brought up that barbershop talk and all that was a little bit of pro wrestling. And and you look at guys like Stone Cold Steve Austin and and they took wrestling by storm but nobody really talks about about him being like one of the greatest of all time because his matches weren't really that exciting his energy that he brought in the character. How it kind? Hi change pro wrestling a little bit. But as far as what he did in the ring. You didn't really go. Wow can you believe you know finishing move or or how he put up with this this type of match or anything like that. It kind of reminded me of that. When thinking about Conor McGregor his point and I think that is something where we'll look back and look at his contribution to the sport but I don't know that we'll talk about him? As being one of the greats. I agree I found the exact quote he says it's about being the guy that people are going to be talking about at fifty a hundred about fifty one hundred years from now that's really what gets me out of bed in the morning at the end of the day no disrespect to connor because I love what he's doing for our sport I don't think he's GonNa be in the conversation. People sitting around at a barbershop talking about the greatest martial arts artists in the world He's right the the only thing that will happen is you'll get that one while cargo. Hey Bob out that Conor McGregor man. He sold some paper views. And then everyone another head and fist bump and I five and do whatever because you gotta give give him that. He really really did change the sport in that regard but as far as those statistics all time greats the ticks. He's not there yet now. Connors career is not over over. Maybe he'll get there. I don't know in fact hanging anelle on Habibur Maga made off would be a great start if he can get to that but no disrespect to Habib he's still. Has Tony ahead of them. So we'll see and that's a whole other conversation. The other guy that was addressed was Habib. Magomedov Kellerman was has basically he backtracked a little bit on a statement. Yeah here's basically Here's what went down. Callan was trying to say this is a quote from Columbine. I don't mean who's more accomplished. I'm talking about just the eyeball test. Jones Jones needed more clarification. What do you mean by that? The eyeball test Kellerman says no magomed off in a sport where it seemed early on that the one that the one who's basis the ground game usually has the advantages guy who is best known for striking is the best example. I can think of a guy who's ground game is ridiculous Gillis and then can also stand up. I mean. I didn't believe other than that. Big Punch on McGregor hasn't shown US enough to be part of that sentence. Habib has gotten better for sure cirque with Iaquinta for awhile remember. He doesn't fight frequently correct. You're right he does. And and then toss out that example. You gave him Kellerman alluded to when I just said he just doesn't have much of a history as a striker. So this is what Jones says right. Yeah his standup is really not much to write home about now. This is like after a chuckle. He had to hold back a little bit. I really don't want to insult my fellow martial artists. I don't WanNA insult these guys. I'm happy before everyone like I said some guys are more popular. Some guys make more money. It's always going to be that kind of opinion thing but by the time I leave the sport. I don't think there's is going to be much of an argument. So he did well for himself he had to say something similar to what he said. which might it sound disrespectful to Habib? I really don't think he. His intention was to do anything other than promote the fight. He was just answering the questions and he had the put it that way. There was no way around around I thought he did great I o we give him an a plus on that on that performance for steak. Yeah so kind of interesting. Two Thousand Twenty were two guys that have been bad. Boys in the past are kind of holding their own McGregor An and John Jones now John Jones will see what happens. Going forward. McGregor Still Hill has some stuff to contend with on the other side of the pond but so far in terms of them predicting maybe the can fight three times this year in and be great martial artists so far Soga All right Well that's kind of it man. Look there's a lot of other news on the front front page of our may junkie if you want to check it out. There's used to forty seven pre-event facts. There's a catch up with every single person from the The main card of you've you've seen forty-seven and even some additional Fights fighter. Excuse me that are on the UC to forty seven card Gary Tanin wants a one and by the way title shot. Of course he was mentioned earlier on an episode because he's going to be grappling versus destined. Play it was on the spinning back earlier this week Gaston Bolanos is back in action goes. He had won four in a row member. We got submitted Yet submitted back in September. He's going to be fighting on a card coming up here. Rebel tour to thirty nine in Oklahoma Darren till still says he might be able to fight it to forty eight versus jared cannon here so first Dana White said he's off off. He's still saying that he might be able to to fight. On kinda says he's been nursing the injury for awhile now. My what I would prefer is just get one hundred percent and then make the fight happen. I think so I can wait till May or April but I really liked the match up. I don't want a hurried version of of this. You need did your ankle to get your mileage in to get your strength and conditioning in much less the fight itself. I'm sure you can put up with the pain for fifteen minutes but I'd rather get somebody cleaned up and have them be one hundred percent. Wouldn't you agree. Yeah especially with with a guy like der until his kind of giving us a little insight into what his mind in the way it works and I wouldn't want a guy like that going into a fight hobbled. Yeah I agree about the craziness of Colby Covington wanting to box. Yeah I knew it no me neither no just stick to ever may it was to going into the fifth round which means he's right there. You know with a tweet here there. He can fight for a world title again. I think Amaro knows that he belongs xenos. He belongs covy nosy belongs. You should focus on the main now fifty cents. The opponent right. Yeah so so. If if there's just a ton of money can stop that from happening. You know if there's two million there by paying fighters better if they paid fighters better fires. I just wouldn't be asking for ridiculous things like that breezes and trying to throw a draft Javelin 'cause or a pitch because he's being paid well to do what what he wants to do right. Supposedly got paid five hundred grand. If I'd Comorros Mun but if somebody's in all from two million to five fifty cent. You can't blame them for wanting to fight fifty cents all right a little bit man. Yeah but it should be able to be. I think when you look at overall what the U. of C. cashes in versus what the fighters get. I think that's why they look look at it. And that's the biggest enigma in this sport is your right. What the UC makes they should share with their athletes? Fifty percent rough number. That's what the other leagues do. But the reason they don't folks is they don't have to. It's a simple as that. Um and I can't blame them for that. That's the way says I'll businesses. Yes Shit to get to that point any fighter. They want they just flat out. Don't I don't have to do it the only way they have to do. It is if all of them say well you know what. Then we're not fighting. Well then guess what the probably have like ten cards laid laid out from here on out and they have Debt payments that. They have to make so at that point they would have to collectively negotiate. Maybe for thirty days days maybe cancel a few shows but they would basically at some point after deliver a product. Espn you couldn't just have six hundred people on the sideline and then pull in. What's called SCAB? ABS- gathered people that crossed the picket lines. and Say I'll fight. I'll fight off fight. It's not going to be the AFC product that's the only way they can get to fifty..

"habib magomedov" Discussed on Five Rounds with Brett Okamoto

"But it probably won't make a ton of difference but it is. It is curious serious okay so when you hear that all right the reason why he's taking this federal one seventy is to start preparing if he wins if all goes well for the Mazal and ornate fight. I think Muslims probably the front runner because he has that b. m. f. title and he's the win and all that stuff I knew and credit to chill chill was the first one that kind of really smart on me up to this had a feeling when Dana White said Oh Muslims too big for connor that he was really just trying to get under his skin. Poke the bear irritate him. And shortly thereafter Connor tweeted about it and seemed very annoyed and I know he was annoyed by so it seems like he wants to prove everyone wrong are you are you more into it. Once you hear about those plans. Do you still feel kind of like I do that. One has do the other. You could have taken this fight against Rony one and then jumped up to one seventy. Yeah it really to me. It doesn't really matter a whole lot. What way class this fighters and honestly I don't think a lot of people who are watching it will even resonate with them so I think if it's something that he's trying to do to prove Dana White in the UFC? I don't think he needs to do that. Honestly honestly I think that I think the the the proof is in is how much money that flight would make McGregor goes out and knocks out ceremony at any way. Class doesn't matter if it's one fifty five or one on seventy if he looks good in that flight and he cut a promo on on Mazal afterward. That's the fight to make. It doesn't really matter one seventy tool five to sixty fifty five. I mean that that's going to be the fight regardless whether or not he lost her only at welterweight lightweight historically. Let's talk about owning here for a second. Historically I think it's fair to say he has not come big in the big moments right never want the. WC Belt never won the UFC belt and it seems like every time he's he's building and this has happened many times before he's always been like the consummate company guy pro all that stuff you know. He fights anyone he fights down until when it doesn't make any sense for him he'll he'll fight Liane Edwards when it doesn't make any sense for him he has never complained about a matchup but he'll go on these streets and then he'll get a big main event fight or big. You know high profile fight like Ferguson. Like h she and falter. RDA FALTER MAY D as falter so historically it feels like he doesn't come up. This almost feels like his last big fight right. His last chance adds to maybe change that legacy and I don't think he's shown us anything that will suggest otherwise but I like the idea of him getting that one last chance to you'll never fight for about two teams like point but maybe you know he gets the fight for the CONOR McGregor belt if you will which in some people's eyes is bigger so I like that. It's it's not being talked about it and won't be talked talked about as much because this is all about connor but like that story line as well as we prepare for this one hundred percent. This is a great story on both accounts accounts and arguably better story of smaroni pulls off the wind because he kind of exercises that demon of not being able to win the big one and no no. It's not a title fight but like you said in some ways. This is a title fight. If he beat Conor McGregor. It's a much bigger deal to the mainstream in stream audience than even if you beat those on jobs a few years ago for title right. It's much bigger. I mean he he becomes a much bigger star and then I mean he he goes on and probably gets another one or two big money fights after that against someone maybe he reminds maybe he was Moslem. All who knows but it's it's a bigger fight and and if he pulls it off it adds a new layer to his legacy and to me. I mean it's only legacies already set. He has the most wins in. UFC OF CS. He has the most finishes history. He's easy. There's no ballots for the US Hall of fame but if there were aerial he would be a first ballot. UFC Hall of Famer one hundred percent. There's no doubt already so he's almost. I mean I hate to say it but it's almost like he's coming into this fight. You know playing with house money you know even even if he loses he gets them McGregor payday. He's already done outside of winning a title. He's pretty much done everything he needed to do. He's made a good amount of money. He's he's won a ton of bonuses. I believe he's also the leader in bonuses earliest one of the leaders in in fight night bonuses so even if he loses he's he's a hall of Famer his legacy is pretty much said if he wins. That's a whole that's a whole new layer to a whole new. I mean we'll we'll be talking about Donald trump differently in five ten years if you beat McGregor vaguer now than than before. It has been a year to forget for Connor. Twenty nineteen has been just an absolute nightmare. It has been a disaster. He has spent more time in front of judges in courts. He has the gun. He didn't spend a second in the octagon. And like I said it's it's been really hard to watch him. Go through this. It just seemed like every single you know. I don't know two three weeks stretch. Were faced with a new controversy and we were wondering. I think at one point if he'd ever come back and I think we were wondering doing throughout if he has hurt his legacy forever and if he can ever get back to where he wants wasn't if you'd be as popular was now the flight is a done deal and and we've had around a week or so to digested. Does it feel like a big deal. That he's coming back or do you think he has done irreparable harm to his popularity. I think harm has been done but I still think when when the fight gets closer and closer. It'll be a very big deal. I think it will be I mean. It'll it'll certainly be depending on what happens. The rest of the twenty twenty. It'll certainly be one of the biggest fights twenty twenty Amina. I imagine I know his plan is to fight again. But you know the best laid plans us on and so forth but it will certainly be a big fight and it may be a bigger fight than anyone that happened in two thousand nineteen depending on how how it shakes out. I think not has done damage to his his brand. I do think he has done damage to his image and And and it's just it's the small things like the the you know knocking the got cell phone and stomping on it and then you know he punched a an older guy in a bar. Which I you know? It's on video. You can't even claim otherwise. I mean everyone saw it with our with our own is and it just makes him look. It doesn't make him look like the conor McGregor that rose to fame and fortune in the U. of C.. And then of course there's lingering being sexual assault allegations which have been reported by other New York Times and I know that that conner's team has adamantly denied those but they're still out there. You know there are lingering and and it's it's not. It's going to be interesting. To see how he kind of rehabilitate his image. As is this fight approaches is going to be the same guy that comes out guns. A blazing with the trash talk like he did so many times before against all own Eddie Alvarez. NATO's Habib Number MEDOFF. IS HE GONNA be that same guy or is it can take a step back in and show us a different side of him. Since is all these things have happened. I don't know I if I was a betting. Man I'd say he he's GonNa come full out but he's been somewhat respectful to Sironi on social media so far so I don't know but I'm very curious I'm I'm very much looking forward to January eighteenth and the build up to that fight. I think it's going to be. It's going to be really interesting now on Monday. We did a poll on the show and got almost ninety thousand vote. I don't think I've ever done a poll that has garner that much attention and that many votes but the question was a very simple one which main event are more looking forward to connor versus Aronie January. Eighteenth or Habib Magomedov versus Tony Ferguson. which is happening? April eighteenth in Brooklyn New York. Sixty nine percent voted in favor of Habib. Now is this just you know again the Internet and of course You know they're gonNA favorite you know the hardcore fans fight the title fight the true title fight and it's amazing fight. Twelve wins in a row. Oh vs twelve and owned the UFC twenty eight and a dominant champion most dominant champion may be in UC history against the former interim champion. All that stuff you know they booked at four times fifth time to try all those or is that really the better fight. Is that really big. Are you surprised that sixty nine percent of this ninety thousand or so people who voted voted in in favor of hubby versus. Tony Not surprised given given the audiences is going to be mostly people who follow pretty closely. I I do. I mean if you're if you're asking me which I'm which one I'm looking forward to the most I mean I would probably lean be versus Ferguson too. Because that is that is a fight that has been highly anticipated. They've tried to put it together. Four Times it hasn't come to fruition and to me I mean and I think this may be an objective statement. It is between the two best lightweights right now in the UFC and to the best lightweights ever to ever done it. So I I would probably I totally get why people would vote that way. But if we're talking about the mainstream man I mean all respect to have economic and Medoff Tony Ferguson. I think Habib's name over. The last year's is has become it has crossed over into the mainstream it has it has resonated more with the casual fan especially after the McGregor fight and and all that came with that before and after but conor McGregor so conor McGregor he's still the biggest star in the UFC. And I think he still will that by a wide margin so when it when it comes down to it I think that more people will still probably watch McGregor ceremony and the the casual fan base the ones that are not watching pretty much every show anyway are probably going to be more excited about SIRONI versus Versa McGregor in my opinion and again. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe maybe things change between now and April. When that's what happens if Beth fight happens? Hopefully that's what happens but yeah McGregor. Slow McGregor I mean you you you know that I mean it's It's GonNa be hard to say that that won't be the bigger fight when it comes right down to it in terms of the audience I'm not just doing schtick here. It legit makes me uncomfortable. When does the UFC announce fights four and a half months in advance? Connor fight they finalized a month and a half. Why this fight of all fights the one that feels like it's curse? Do we have to know about a four and a half months in now. I know they have this. Press conference coming up The Friday before to forty five next week in in Las Vegas but really did we have to do this. Why why are we tempting? The gods this actually legitimately. I'm not even joking. This is not a steak this makes me uncomfortable. This makes me feel like something bad has to happen between now and April eighteenth with I mean I hope I hope that's not the case but I I get what you're saying but look I think that the UFC is. I applaud them for the first few months of of the New Year of twenty twenty look really good and they haven't lined up very nicely. We don't know what's going to be the march headliner yet yet but January. There's there's McGregor versus cowboy February there's Jones versus race marshes tossup. I know you're ported. That could be out of Sonya versus you. The Valentina I love watching Valentine now that fight could be. Are you saying that it's going to be a bit of a No. I'm just talking about headline all right. Of course I I'm I'm all I'm all aboard the the red headed Valentine trank. Go train the dog. auburn-haired Champ yes and and then April and now now we know it's Beavers Ferguson in Brooklyn and these are the marquee fights men and I don't remember the last time the UFC has has has has had the first quarter plus of.

"But it probably won't make a ton of difference but it is. It is curious Sirius. Okay so when you hear that all right the reason why he's taking this federal one seventy is to start preparing if he wins if all goes well for the Mazal and ornate fight. I think Muslims probably the front runner because he has that b. m. f. title and he's the win and all that stuff I knew and credit to chill chill was the first one that kind of really smart on me up to this had a feeling when Dana White said Oh Muslims too big for connor that he was really just trying to get under his skin poke the bear irritate him and shortly thereafter. Connor tweeted about it and seemed very annoyed and I know he was annoyed by so it seems like he wants to prove everyone wrong are you are you more into it once. You hear about those plans. Do you still feel kind of like I do that. One has do the other. You could have taken this fight against Rony one and then jumped up to one seventy. Yeah it really to me. It doesn't really matter a whole lot. What way class this flight is and honestly? I don't think a lot of people who are watching. It will even resonate with them so I think if it's something that he's trying to do to prove Dana White in the UFC. I don't think he needs to do that. Honestly honestly I think that I think the the the proof is in is how much money that flight would make McGregor goes out and knocks out ceremony at any way. Class doesn't matter if it's wants to five or one on seventy if he looks good in that flight and cut a promo on on Mazal afterward. That's the fight to make. It doesn't really matter one seventy tool five to sixty fifty five. I mean that that's going to be the fight regardless whether or not he lost her only at welterweight lightweight historically. Let's talk about owning here for a second. Historically I think it's fair to say he has not come big in the big moments right never want the. WC Belt never won the UFC belt and it seems like every time he's he's building and this has happened many times before he's always been like the consummate company guy pro all that stuff you know. He fights anyone he fights down until when it doesn't make any sense for him he'll he'll fight Liane Edwards when it doesn't make any sense for him he has never complained about a matchup but he'll go on these streets and then he'll get a big main event fight or big. You know high profile fight like Ferguson. Like h she and falter. RDA FALTER MAY D as falter so historically it feels like he doesn't come up. This almost feels like his last big fight right. His last chance adds to maybe change that legacy and I don't think he's shown us anything that will suggest otherwise but I like the idea of him getting that one last chance to the you'll never fight for about two teams like point but maybe you know he gets the fight for the CONOR McGregor belt if you will which in some people's eyes is bigger so I like that. It's it's not being talked about it and won't be talked talked about as much because this is all about connor but like that story line as well as we prepare for this one hundred percent. This is a great story on both accounts accounts and arguably better story of Surani pulls off the wind because he kind of exercises that demon of not being able to win the big one and no no. It's not a title fight but like you said in some ways. This is a title fight if he beat Conor McGregor. It's a much bigger deal to the mainstream mainstream audience than even if you beat those on jobs a few years ago for title right. It's much bigger. I mean he he becomes a much bigger star and then I mean he he goes on and probably gets another one or two big money fights after that against someone maybe he reminds maybe he was Moslem. All who knows but it's it's a bigger fight and and if he pulls it off it adds a new layer to his legacy and to me. I mean it's only legacies already set. He has the most wins in. UFC OF CS. He has the most finishes history. He's easy. There's no ballots for the US Hall of fame but if there were aerial he would be a first ballot. UFC Hall of Famer one hundred percent. There's no doubt already so he's almost. I mean I hate to say it but it's almost like he's coming into this fight. You know playing with house money you know even even if he loses he gets them McGregor payday. He's already done outside of winning a title. He's pretty much done everything he needed to do. He's made a good amount of money. He's he's won a ton of bonuses. I believe he's also the leader in bonuses earliest one of the leaders in in fight night bonuses so even if he loses he's he's a hall of Famer his legacy is pretty much said if he wins. That's a whole that's a whole new layer to a whole new. I mean we'll we'll be talking about Donald trump differently in five ten years if you beat McGregor Gregor now than than before it has been a year to forget for Connor. Twenty nineteen has been just an absolute nightmare. It has been a disaster. He has spent more time in front of judges in courts. He has the gun. He didn't spend a second in the octagon. And like I said it's it's been really hard to watch him. Go through this. It just seemed like every single you know. I don't know two three weeks stretch. Were faced with a new controversy and we were wondering. I think at one point if he'd ever come back and I think we were wondering doing throughout if he has hurt his legacy forever and if he can ever get back to where he wants wasn't if you'd be as popular was now the flight is a done deal and and we've had around a week or so to digested. Does it feel like a big deal. That he's coming back or do you think he has done irreparable harm to his popularity. I think harm has been done but I still think when when the fight gets closer and closer. It'll be a very big deal. I think it will be I mean. It'll it'll certainly be depending on what happens. The rest of the twenty twenty. It'll certainly be one of the biggest fights twenty twenty Amina. I imagine I know his plan is to fight again. But you know the best laid plans us on and so forth but it will certainly be a big fight and it may be a bigger fight than anyone that happened in two thousand nineteen depending on how how it shakes out. I think not has done damage to his his brand. I do think he has done damage to his image and And it's just it's the small things like the the you know knocking the got cell phone and stomping on it and then you know he punched a an older guy in a bar. Which I you know? It's on video. You can't even claim otherwise. I mean everyone saw it with our with our own is and it just makes him look. It doesn't make him look like the conor McGregor that rose to fame and fortune in the U. of C.. And then of course. There's the lingering being sexual assault allegations which have been reported by other New York Times and I know that that conner's team has adamantly denied those but they're still out there you know there are lingering and and it's it's not it's going to be interesting to see how he kind of rehabilitate his image. As is this fight approaches is going to be the same guy that comes out guns. A blazing with the trash talk like he did so many times before against all own Eddie Alvarez. NATO's Habib Number MEDOFF. IS HE GONNA be that same guy or is it can take a step back in and show us a different side of him. Since is all these things have happened. I don't know I if I was a betting. Man I'd say he's probably GONNA come full out but he's been somewhat respectful to Sironi on social media so far so I don't know but I'm very curious I'm I'm very much looking forward to January eighteenth and the build up to that fight. I think it's going to be. It's going to be really interesting now on Monday. We did a poll on the show and got almost ninety thousand vote. I don't think I've ever done a poll that has garner that much attention and that many votes but the question was a very simple one which main event are more looking forward to connor versus Aronie January. Eighteenth or Habib Magomedov versus Tony Ferguson. which is happening? April eighteenth in Brooklyn New York. Sixty nine percent voted in favor of Habib. Now is this just you know again the Internet and of course You know they're gonNA favorite you know the hardcore fans fight the title fight the true title fight and it's amazing fight. Twelve wins in a row. Oh vs twelve and owned the UFC twenty eight and a dominant champion most dominant champion may be in UC history against the former interim champion. All that stuff you know they booked at four times fifth time to try all those or is that really the better fight. Is that really big. Are you surprised that sixty nine percent of this ninety thousand or so people who voted voted in in favor of hubby versus. Tony Not surprised given given the audiences is going to be mostly people who follow pretty closely. I I do. I mean if you're if you're asking me which I'm which one I'm looking forward to the most I mean I would probably lean be versus Ferguson too. Because that is that is a fight that has been highly anticipated. They've tried to put it together. Four Times it hasn't come to fruition and to me I mean and I think this may be an objective statement. It is between the two best lightweights right now in the UFC and to the best lightweights ever to ever done it. So I I would probably I totally get why people would vote that way. But if we're talking about the mainstream man I mean all respect to have economic and Medoff Tony Ferguson. I think I think Habib's name over the last year's is has become. It has crossed over into the mainstream. It has it has resonated more with the casual fan especially after the McGregor fight. And and all that came with that before and after but conor McGregor so Conor McGregor he's still the biggest star in the UFC. And I think he still will that by a wide margin so when it when it comes down to it. I think that more people will still probably watch McGregor ceremony and the the casual fan base. The ones that are not watching pretty much every show anyway are probably going to be more excited about SIRONI versus Versa McGregor in my opinion and again. Maybe I'm wrong. Maybe maybe things change between now and April. When that's what happens if Beth fight happens? Hopefully that's what happens but yeah McGregor. Slow McGregor I mean you you you know that I mean it's It's GonNa be hard to say that that won't be the bigger fight when it comes right down to it in terms of the audience I'm not just doing schtick here. It legit makes me uncomfortable. When does the UFC announce fights four and a half months in advance? Connor fight they finalized a month and a half. Why this fight of all fights the one that feels like it's curse? Do we have to know about a four and a half months in now. I know they have this. Press conference coming up The Friday before to forty five next week in in Las Vegas but really did we have to do this. Why why are we tempting? The gods this actually legitimately. I'm not even joking. This is not a steak this makes me uncomfortable. This makes me feel like something bad has to happen between now and April eighteenth with I mean I hope I hope that's not the case but I I get what you're saying but look I think that the UFC is. I applaud them for the first few months of of the New Year of twenty twenty look really good and they haven't lined up very nicely. We don't know what's going to be the march headliner yet yet but January. There's there's McGregor versus cowboy February there's Jones versus race marshes tossup. I know you're ported.

"Me you guys always ask I. Oh we had Anthony Walker. Aw Love that guy. We had Mike Heck love that guy two guys with fighting but they're good friends of ours but every single week I get questions. When is pizza coming back when his pizza coming back back? He's back Della. Mr Sister's feet. I believe I jock array would take issue with that right there never heard of them never heard of them never heard you anyway. Happy Birthday my friend God. Yup for a year for hell does that face. I keep getting more pretty. I don't know how you do it. How my word face to face them? Thank my mom's Mexican jeans and my father's Irish Christians. It's the combination of those two. gave me this face and this hair but every week I get questions. WHO's when speeds are coming back? And he is here. I think is the perfect opportunity to get him back back on the show he might even just be on permanently moving forward as long as he's not this is over there. Don't be breaking news now Jose. Ah Ah we just giving him little giving them a little teaser. Pizza Carol might beyond more more and more as we go forward maybe he might even be on in person but who knows you might. I have an ethical and calls it as esther. Lynn calls an extra live side. When we're both in the same room who knows? Maybe we'll maybe something you guys can come hang out but as always pizza what you've been doing the last two weeks since we last saw did some great work your ballot or London Cage Warriors. By other than that. What's been up? It was crazy. I Bell Tower London and cage warriors crazy because there were other sides of London. I'm sure people from screaming at this. Now saying they wear book book it was like an hour and a half away so it was constantly under the underground. And I'm just I'm stupid so just keep on the people in Asmara. I'm here to try and go there. And they're like. How do you not know how this works dickhead? You know what I mean. I don't think they are probably fifteen times in the last four years and I still don't know how it works I can understand. It'll it'll be annoying boy. I mean walking to do you know what I mean should be privileged well. I've never been to London so you'd have to show me around. We we end up in court. We end up in Birmingham and like some like like shady. Allie of Pizza. Where are you taking me? You're just like yeah. This is definitely where we have to go but as always this is not our show this is your show you can ask questions on the fighting dot com page in the comment serves below the ones in green. We'll take priority or you can use hashtags the sat on twitter. I have not read the questions yet but I bet there's a lot to talk about regarding one Irish fighter coming that supposedly has joe's offie. Yeah that's what I hear. Duffy Joe Duffy. I'm from you guys. Are you that this is officially Joe. Duffy Norman Park podcast because those are the two biggest fighters out there. I'm Neil Syria ideal. Oh serious about say deal Siri but for right out of the gate. Oh we as parents. We got a lot of classes on twitter. I was looking at some specific questions for pizza that I haven't looked look that we got another crystal question. But we're GONNA hop right into it on the site from grab seventy seven connor verses cowboy right reactions. Your your reactions thoughts on the match making the way and the winds position in the hundred and seventy slash one hundred and fifty five title pictures. So yes pete for this episode. We're GonNa talk about this especially since you've covered this man probably more than any other journalists out there conor McGregor finally has returned definitely definitely more than everybody sorry go ahead Pete Carroll has there you have it folks pizza. Carol is covered Conor McGregor more than any other journalists out there but conor McGregor finally has his is returned date where he takes on Donald Cowboys. Surani in the main event of I believe. UFC Two forty six in January. It broke Thanksgiving over here in the states. I was at Thanksgiving. Thanks giving dinner and I brought my. I had a hunch. I'm going to bring my computer just in case now sitting there having dinner while I was getting ready to for dinner and then all of a sudden I get these alerts on my phone. I'm like why aren't Thanksgiving wise hawks into did some work in an eight some Turkey but I don't know how they're actually was over on your side of the pond. I'm sure it was. It was a little later in the in the early in the morning. I never know the time differences for you and May as arguably the most famous Irishman in the world. What was the reaction yes you? What is the reaction to the second? Most famous Irishman in the world finally getting his fight and it was it was pretty muted. Like I I mean I did speak to you about this before you know I. I did feel as though and the barn wagon has reached a hall in indefinitely at the moment A- as we all foyer is far more than just a will connor win or lose. I think he's he's really trying to fight back to gain his reputation mutation by again as I said this is the point android of Orland that the height of his career. People are looking up to him. Luggy some type of mythological figure you can only go down from there like even if none of this stuff happened with the phones or hitting the all go in the pool. It is impossible to stay at the top at a nearly like B commissioned. That's what that felt like for a while there were so I think there was only always gonNa have come down boy. I don't think I ever expected to come down to be this hard and mm-hmm for a person that was once Heraldo lifted up at the Irish the youth of Orland as a guy who wants to be used as a representation like this is what we're like where young were fearless and we're passionate all of these teams that did the youth of wanted to see themselves as during a crippling recession. He was or as Moore Moore stew happened. I feel like the people of distance themselves from him. And unless unless people push him forward as an example. Simple of what it is to be so I feel like he has a lot to do here. It's not just about Donaldson Roni. It's not just about one seventy it's not about Las Vegas. It's about it's not only about winning. It's about winning back. Some of his credibility oakville yacht can tell you from this side of the states. A lot of friends who don't even like him and May all text me O'Connor's back conners. Back conners back like they aren't aware of what he's been in the headlines for over the last few months they've heard some rumblings like the the allegations negations over in Dublin. Or they've seen the maybe the video of him punching that old man or smashing the phone and all this stuff but I can tell you there's a lot of excitement amongst my friends that are quote quote unquote casual observers from the outside. So it's interesting to hear that people in Ireland don't really seem to care. I remember that video. You shot out in Dublin. I actually edited up if you're asking all those those those Irishman. I don't know what the what what was it that square in Dublin. Or whatever. And you're asking them about the didn't really like I remember those women those I I always think about those two women you interviewed. They were just. I don't even care about conor McGregor. The only thing I associate Conor McGregor with is Americans coming over to Ireland and asking us. Hey Do you know where conor conor McGregor loose like that. So that's clearly a different vibe between American and Irish fight fans because I can tell you from my from my point of view What people are excited over here? I'm excited I'm excited. That he's GonNa fight but he has to like you know it's it's it's like this is. This isn't the way anybody wants to see the story and right like this isn't a guy at the very of power seemed so untouchable is now in this situation and where he needs to win people support back some situations. I never saw themselve in uneven from when we did that. Video has been all of the bad headlines headline condensed. Then I mean the worst thing conor McGregor Domino put out. That video was traveling on a bus. I mean that was the only thing Conor McGregor doing in the last few years. I don't think we'd be in the situation. We're in Orland with him. You know so Yeah it's it's huge. And I respect the fact that it has broader ramifications Gatien's outside the bubble of the sport and I do feel as though even though. We're all salivating at the Tony Ferguson and Habib Magomedov am for the UFC congress. Return is worth a lot is worth a lot more than that because of the amount of people brings to the sport and maybe maybe with everything that's happened to be even more of an interest. Here this is the way the world is these days you know what I mean. Usually you're in a traffic jam because you know there's been a car crash on the other side. The road and people are all turning their heads to get a good look at it. Like that's the way that's the way we're living these days so it might even make for an even more interesting forgiven. Stituation waist found themselves in himself over the last year or two. Well I can tell you from I. I made a graphic and I post on instagram and it was like what are you what made events last title fight. Are you most looking forward to coming up and it was it even included like Colby tomorrow like John Jones Dominic Reyes Connor Cowboy and and the vast majority where Habib versus Tony Ferguson. And if you look at if you look at our numbers we know how we post the fight announcements on our instagram and twitter and everything. The numbers of likes retweets for Tony and Habibur has Tony Dwarfed Conor McGregor is return. So maybe it's just people are finally excited. That fifth time's The charm arm or maybe they are a little burnt out of Connor. Maybe they're just confused that it's against cowboy. I don't know but I all I know is from looking at social media are Hubby Tony. Numbers dwarfed warped the Conor McGregor numbers. But we we have to appreciate that. We're the biggest website and make smash people come here to get their mixed martial arts news every single a A. It's not like you know we're in the middle of Grafton Street. Asking people are wearing the middle of Trafalgar Square wherever. FOOK PEOPLE GO Times Square asking people. Because I'm pretty sure. The voice in the middle of Times Square now help to signs asking people which woman they prefer that I'll be point. I conor McGregor because they recognize the name. You know you're not wrong but in in terms of the actual fight. Were you surprised dollar owning and not someone like adjust engaging no. I think. It's probably sensible macho. Feel like this is probably the mattress. Gotcha should've came back to fighting with after he went ended up boxing much. Am You know from the from the second that Habib Habib was announced on this show believed Tomo is probably an am or their shows and I said like this is the he's coming back he's GonNa get submitted he's he's GonNa get dominated like I mean it's such a different from a box and fight and his career is taking the biggest blow you know in terms of foyt and since the feeling would have been stupid to bringing them back in and make them beat in his next week after that because first of all it wasn't really a contest you know AH pretty handled their voice and what what's the point and dragging them backing he needs. We need to see that has been some kind of improvement. There needs to be some kind of commitment here here. There was lots of things that came to Lloyd after the last night he wasn't happy with his camp and fellas being critical John Cavanaugh. A lot of times has that I've been worked out. And how he brought in the Roy Buddies for Habib because that was a concern as well although he had brilliant fighters in in his com- none of them none of them. I'm really seemed to be able to replicate while he'll be brings the table. Maybe nobody on earth can replicate while he'll be but you can certainly get better boys in the have good rest and pedigrees and stuff like that you know we. We've seen pictures already of connor training with Ken. Cowley a very rangy. Long striker amaury toy for hitter and go he was returns is that people are making fun of anime record. And he's quite near an even row to believe at the moment book. Cain was a decorated Moi. We talked for it or in Europe or feel like. He's a great person to how there to help prepare for Donald surrounding boredom all together expecting to see a way better mcgregor here are and all the all the things we're hearing from the competencies training two times a day once at eleven. Am once at seven PM. He has has own ruddy back in his comprehend that he was doing on ready. This week. so I feel like there's a lot of a lot of good things a lot a lot of better things I'm I'm hearing about this come because the last time these are new them like ten years they all show shoot off like nobody would talk about what was going on. I think Roddy was the only person that got an interview with over there. for the last night. So feel like the fact that there's a bit more transparency the fact that I'm actually hearing information coming out with a camp. It's all very good things for Conor McGregor on his. Of course. Yeah when I heard it was Donald Cerrone. I said this I was with you. An agreement with you..

I'm going to bring my computer just in case now sitting there having dinner while I was getting ready to for dinner and then all of a sudden I get these alerts on my phone. I'm like why aren't Thanksgiving wise hawks into did some work in an eight some Turkey but I don't know how they're actually was over on your side of the pond. I'm sure it was. It was a little later in the in the early in the morning. I never know the time differences for you and May as arguably the most famous Irishman in the world. What was the reaction yes you? What is the reaction to the second? Most famous Irishman in the world finally getting his fight and it was it was pretty muted. Like I I mean I did speak to you about this before you know I. I did feel as though and the barn wagon has reached a hall in indefinitely at the moment A- as we all foyer is far more than just a will connor win or lose. I think he's he's really trying to fight back to gain his reputation mutation by again as I said this is the point android of Orland that the height of his career. People are looking up to him. Luggy some type of mythological figure you can only go down from there like even if none of this stuff happened with the phones or hitting the all go in the pool. It is impossible to stay at the top at a nearly like B commissioned. That's what that felt like for a while there were so I think there was only always gonNa have come down boy. I don't think I ever expected to come down to be this hard and mm-hmm for a person that was once Heraldo lifted up at the Irish the youth of Orlands Guy who wants to be used as a representation like this is what we're like where young were fearless and we're passionate all of these teams that did the youth of wanted to see themselves as during a crippling recession. He was or as Moore Moore stew happened. I feel like the Irish people up distance themselves from him and unless unless people push him forward as an example simple of what it is to be so. I feel like he has a lot to do here. It's not just about Donaldson Roni. It's not just about one seventy it's not about Las Vegas. It's about it's not only about winning. It's about winning back. Some of his credibility oakville yacht can tell you from this side of the states. A lot of friends who don't even like him and May all text me O'Connor's back conners. Back conners back like they aren't aware of what he's been in the headlines for over the last few months they've heard some rumblings like the allegations negations over in Dublin or they've seen the maybe the video of him punching that old man or smashing the phone and all this stuff but I can tell you. There's a lot of excitement amongst my friends that are quote quote unquote casual observers from the outside. So it's interesting to hear that people in Ireland don't really seem to care. I remember that video. You shot out in Dublin. I actually edited up if you're asking all those those those Irishman. I don't know what the what what was it that square in Dublin. Or whatever. And you're asking them about the didn't really like I remember those women those also. I always think about those two women you interviewed. They were just. I don't even care about conor McGregor. The only thing I associate Conor McGregor with is Americans coming over to Ireland and asking us. Hey Do you know where conor conor McGregor loose like that. So that's clearly a different vibe between American and Irish fight fans because I can tell you from my from my point of view What people are excited over here? I'm excited I'm excited. That he's GonNa fight but he has to like you know it's it's it's like this is. This isn't the way anybody wants to see the story and right like this isn't a guy at the very of power seemed so untouchable is now in this situation and where he needs to win people support back some situations. I never saw themselve in uneven from when we did that. Video has been all of the bad headlines headline condensed. Then I mean the worst thing conor McGregor Domino put out. That video was traveling on a bus. I mean that was the only thing Conor McGregor doing in the last years. I don't think we'd be in the situation. We're in Orland with him. You know so Yeah it's it's huge. And I respect the fact that it has broader ramifications Gatien's outside the bubble of the sport and I do feel as though even though. We're all salivating at the Tony Ferguson and Habib Magomedov am for the UFC congress. Return is worth a lot is a Lord. Were a lot more than that because of the amount of people brings to the sport and maybe maybe with everything that's happened to be even more of an interest here. This is the way the world is these days you know what I mean. Usually you're in a traffic jam because you know there's been a car crash on the other side. The road and people are all turning their heads to get a good look at it. Like that's the way that's the way we're living these days so it might even make for an even more interesting forgiven. Stituation waist found themselves in himself over the last year or two. Well I can tell you from I. I made a graphic and I post on instagram and it was like what are you what made events last title fight. Are you most looking forward to coming up and it was it even included like Colby tomorrow like John Jones Dominic Reyes Connor Cowboy and and the vast majority where Habib versus Tony Ferguson. And if you look at if you look at our numbers we know how we post the fight announcements on our instagram and twitter and everything. The numbers of likes retweets for Tony and Habibur has Tony Dwarfed Conor McGregor is return. So maybe it's just people are finally excited. That fifth time's The charm arm or maybe they are a little burnt out of Connor. Maybe they're just confused that it's against cowboy. I don't know but I all I know is from looking at social media are Hubby Tony. Numbers dwarfed warped the Conor McGregor numbers. But we we have to appreciate that. We're the biggest website and make smash people come here to get their mixed martial arts news every single a A. It's not like you know we're in the middle of Grafton Street. Asking people are wearing the middle of Trafalgar Square wherever. FOOK PEOPLE GO Times Square asking people. Because I'm pretty sure. The voice in the middle of Times Square now help to signs asking people which woman they prefer that I'll be point. I conor McGregor because they recognize the name. You know you're not wrong but in in terms of the actual fight. Were you surprised dollar owning and not someone like adjust engaging no. I think. It's probably sensible macho. Feel like this is probably the mattress. Gotcha should've came back to fighting with after he went ended up boxing much. Am You know from the from the second that Habib Habib was announced on this show believed Tomo is probably an am or their shows and I said like this is the he's coming back. He's going to get submitted he's he's GonNa get dominated like I mean it's such a different from a box and fight and his career is taking the biggest blow you know in terms of foyt and since that's the feeling would have been stupid to bringing them back in and make them beat in his next week after that because first of all it wasn't really a contest you know. Ah Pretty handled their voice and what what's the point and dragging them backing he needs. We need to see that has been some kind of improvement. There needs to be some kind of commitment here here. There was lots of things that came to Lloyd after the last night he wasn't happy with his camp. And you know a fellow us being critical John Cavanaugh. A lot of times has that happen. Worked out and how he brought in the Roy Buddies for Habib because that was a concern as well although he had brilliant fighters in in his com- none of them none of them. I'm really seemed to be able to replicate while he'll be brings the table. Maybe nobody on earth can replicate while he'll be but you can certainly get better boys in the have good rest and pedigrees and stuff like that you know we..

"habib magomedov" Discussed on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show

"Doing a wonderful thing. My man honestly you know. Let's be honest the fighters they don't get paid in my opinion what they deserve in. It's people like you in large part. Who help help them be able to fight? And continue chasing this dream of being you know one of the top fighters as far as earners are concerned. and You keep that dream alive and I know how you know the fighters writers feel about you in the managers feel about June. It's amazing to develop that reputation in this particular sports. So congratulations on all your success and everything that you've done in the main continued to do you and it was great to learn more about your history about about where you came from and how you bill talk this. It's really impressive. I appreciate that man and I appreciate everything you do for the sports awards here without people like you. It's it's very hard for a lot of people to get this great information and hear all these great things about how industry shaping up so how you're doing amazing job to you my friend. Thank you Hans. I appreciate it. We'll talk to you soon. Thank you all right there. He is Hans Mon Camp Director of Combat Sports for Monster Energy and as he mentioned an outline he's been involved in the fight game for quite some time and One of the very important figures in this game that maybe you don't know But without him the fighters aren't making all that much money especially the ones who are trying to make a name for themselves. I mean obviously the McGregor's of the world are you know doing just fine without wither without sponsors but the sponsors help in between McConnell hasn't fought right. He hasn't fought since October of last year. And I'm pinpointing him but every manager fighter will tell you if you don't have sponsors you're struggling And that means that the people aren't connecting with you that means you're not getting big fights the spotlight on you. It's a very important part of this game. And I and it was scary for a lot of fighters when the reebok deal was brought in and I talk a lot about the reebok deal as far as like stripping away their personality but the truth of the matter is forget about the personality it took away their income When you took away those sponsors the banners all that stuff not only in the more things that media day a post fight press conference center and it's been loosened up a little bit but still it took a while for the fighters start to get back on that same track and I think social media helped them out a lot and so? I think that that's something that people aren't recognizing I heard obviously patriots and it was on my show and she told me about that and that created a big. You know a a big stir but A lot of players are doing well as a result of social media joked recently that were Moskva dolls. Instagram reminds me of that scene. Wayne's world where you know they're hawking in all these different products and of course I'm joking. I'm happy for them. I want the fighters get paid as much as possible. They all deserve more From the top all the way to the bottom they all do so great to hear Honda Hanta Story and a lot of fun doing this particular episode focusing on the business side of I don't consider myself a business person per se but I do love the business side of the fight game and so it was cool to hear those three different perspectives before we go a couple of news and notes actually while we were doing this. PODCAST Bell tour dropped a pretty big one on us Announcing that the bantamweight champion for their organization Kyoji. Her Gucci has relinquished their title. This is the press release. It's pretty short after suffering a severe injury that forced him to undergo surgery bell tour bantamweight champion Kyoji. Her Gucci has relinquished the title. He won last June a belt or two twenty two with the championship. Now vacant Will move to book a one hundred and thirty five pounds title bout in the coming months There is a quote in this story from Scott Coker Creveld President and the main part is after fully healing. We plan to give Kyoji an immediate title shot. Of course he's also the rise in champion as well. So that's That's a pretty big piece of news. The other big story. That's been percolating this week. has been twenty ferguson versus Habib Magomedov. ESPN reporting putting on Monday. That the U of C is targeting it for April eighteenth in Brooklyn New York and that is accurate. That is what they want. Habib himself saying recently that he wants to to fight in April and that Brooklyn was the front runner But something weird happened. And I don't know weird is the right word but something that happens sometimes when these big fights are being negotiated happened Monday night where you see Habib side start to flaunt the fact that they have a assigned `bout agreement. Let's go Tony. Here's our agreement. Now it's on you and you and you don't hear much from Tony. Tony emerged Tuesday tonight and said that on twitter. He wrote that you know time to play Games are over. I'm open for business and it was a bit of a mixed message. I think that if you did did not really know what was going on. You would think that he was confirming that the fight was done deal The video would certainly suggest that but what he was saying was like let's talk. Let's talk business you. You want this fight. I want this fight. Let's talk. It's something that's happened over the past few years in the AFC as we all know about the rise of the The money fight the mega fight in large part because of Conor McGregor success and popularity and over the last year so the UCS tried to you know. Stop a lot of that money. Fight talk and get things back on track for them. It was almost like the inmates. were running the asylum was starting to become a lot like boxing where Pfizer being negotiated every single time. It didn't matter if he had a four fight deal ideal ideal. You were renegotiating every single time. They don't want this and so they have started to put their foot down a lot more and just said like take it or leave it and often the fighters taking it because at the end of the day the UFC has to leverage their the promotion. They're the ones with the belts. You have to fight for them and we saw this with mine and Covington and early in the toxic remember. This fight is what four and a half months away. We're starting to see the same thing here Tony. I hope that they're able to talk. I hope that they are able to give Tonia deal. That is fair and is something something that he you know. I think has earned an end in his worth and that it's not just okay. Habib is the Big Star. He is the side. Let's get him done and Tony. You're just GONNA take AAC whatever it is you fought Donald Twenty four because in my opinion what he fought Surani for has nothing to do with what he's fighting for this title. Fight this a main event. The whole show is going to be built around this fight different circumstance so different fight can't just take the same thing and so in the Post Sufa old old regime era now the WMA endeavor era a new people have been brought in and they're trying to put their foot down and say look. You WanNa negotiate go elsewhere because it's not happening here and that's created some friction and that's created some some really tense times between fighter slash manager and promoter So I'm really curious to see how this story plays out but this particular story is not done. This fight is not done. We know the day we know what they want. But Tony side isn't finalize. And I just want to caution everyone that whenever you see someone flaunting signed contract because take it from me as someone who tries to find out information from people. For whatever reason reason fighters managers they're very afraid to talk about fights before the promoter and it doesn't matter if it's your belt or anyone else before the promoter makes it official. They're very afraid. So all of a sudden and those few times when you see someone to actually flawed a sign bowed agreement. You know that the green light is given to put pressure on the other side. Let's not be silly. Let's not be foolish this year. We know exactly what's going on all of a sudden we're seeing. We're seeing assigned bathrooms. We saw that with men. COMINGTON last year You remember that club Ebner Mogomedov. UFC to a five Story that he got mad at me about. Why aren't you talking about my son? Contract is because they're trying to put pressure on Alvarez to take the connor fight so that happens and it's a part of the game it's part of the the business side of this game. I'm not saying it's dirty or anything like that. It's just what makes the fight game and interesting sport to cover In boxing you kind of see how the sausage edges made a little more in our sport. Things are kind of kept under wraps but as the sport continues to grow and social media continues to grow. You're starting to see a little more of this. Come out and We're seeing hanging out with the Tony Ferguson situation. So just keep a locked here. We'll keep Rian. We'll tell you how it really is T- Did you learn a thing or two about the business side Eh may today did you enjoy it. I really enjoyed the me being the young person. I am the comments from instagram and ever since Page said that under Monday show I've been really interested the net and diving into the numbers about good stuff. Thank you and what about Gina Krahn. I mean you just learn you know you were. You're would it be fair to say that. This is the first time that you were exposed to the magic. That is Gina Carano. Yeah I mean pretty much every week that you bring someone on. We had a conversation before the show last week. I was like yeah. Yeah who's randy couture couture. Yes and you're like. Oh he's only like the greatest fighter one of the greatest fighters ever. I really haven't heard of the person until you've had them on their show on your show which you had not had randy on since I've been working on your show so I now know who Gina Carano is. She's awesome makes me want to watch the man to Laurie. And not even a star wars guy right and she was awesome. She was a lot of fun. She's very smiley.
