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

"And he's like. For mouthpiece. And then like I didn't touch my pocket about pieces in there. And I have not forgot the mouthpiece since and that was probably two thousand and three and it takes scenarios like that. Where you know. It's just like just like the athlete. Athlete's is all about performance, and you gained from your, and sometimes you don't perform that really helps you out, and, you know, having that performance where I really dug into myself after that fight and it helped me never do that again. But I've got a I've got a laundry list of things that I laugh about what I've done in the corner before so super cool to be able to get out there and do that. But again, it's never vision when it takes ever go out there, and critique people who I learned from you know, what would you say about the state of ever may cornering? I think you would agree. Probably I don't wanna put words in your mouth, certainly. But for the time I've been observing the sport the last decade. And more. It's certainly gotten a lot better. But one of the things I've really noticed is a lot of us don't exist. And by that, I mean number one people who've done cornering in other similar combat force, which is and they have and those other sports like boxing long histories of cornering, and to it's a lot of really young people. It's a lot of teammates who am I also be active fighters cornering, you're seeing a little bit less of that. Now, you're seeing some generational shift to me, that's that's made cornering a little bit better still long way to go. What is your assessment of the state of Emmett cornering? Yeah. It's kinda long Ray. I mean, I come from the boxing world in the boxing world is you know, you have a couple of people in your corner. But there I mean one one time I had to get on the guilty as who was a cut man and very well-known cut, man. And I was wondering manual -pez. And he started like telling them what to do. And I had to jump on the night. I feel like doing vaccine cornering. It was really just you doing the instruction. And at least it was for me. I have a big team a lot of times that the boxing coach works with the boxer all the time. So the two you're listening to I know when I got into the made a lot of coaches that you're working with and that's why felt like a stick putting the wheel where it was very easy to have so many people told me right thing and everybody could be saying there, I think, but it's so much information or so much going into the fighter where it makes cornering very very very tough. And just like, you said a lot of times athlete and athletes. Aren't you? But it's it's almost like wasn't into a a mom yell into her son on the on the wrestling mat? So you know, you hear say squeezed harder going. Well, what does that mean? You know, it's it's definitely come a long way..

"Where we both interviewed each other eight mild wings and then work to super hot ones. Would you wanna do it? I mean, I'm bad with spicy stuff. But I'll give it a shot. Why not give it a shot? Okay. We're talking about two million Scoville level. You do it fro the internet demands your compliance. Are you going to be if enough people until one one do it? I'll do it. If you wanna see me, and Danny do it. Let us know on Twitter. If you don't you don't have to do. But I think it'd be kind of we've got to spice things up around here, no pun intended, my friend, and I would like to try that. I would like to put it on camera. I'll take the day off after this. So I don't have to go to my next job. And we just ruin our day with sports, maybe we can have sound. Off with wings. Yeah. But we have to get through all ten try. No iota. There is no try either do or do not I well, we'll cross that bridge. How about this? Let's plan something we'll come up with the plan. We'll float it to the audience. Would you be forming a plan? All right. And then we'll just throw acid Austin's face because he's stupid. Okay. Thank you. I appreciate a good job today. They're against we are not done here on the show. We have one more interview to get to I spoke to one of the great coaches in may who is now a commentator for ESPN he's doing like cornerman commentary, and then a little bit more Trevor Wittman he had he had a did a phenomenal job in the US's debut on ESPN. So I wanted to talk to him about it. Here's our conversation. And I'm joined now by coach and now commentator Trevor Wittman Trevor how are you, sir? How are you doing quite? Well, if you're making time for us, so it's actually jump right into it. I have to say what a pleasant surprise. That was when we saw you at the the ESPN plus event as this sort of, well, how would you define your role? Right. Because on the one hand you're discussing what's happening in the corners. But you were also talking about some of the action in the cage for the fights that self so you're commentator, but what is your specific role? I don't know they had called me about a week prior. And said, hey, we have this idea of you know, calling how the corners were and that a lot like how FOX was that ESPN is not going to be showing the corners, but pay per view does. So they asked if I can come and be a part of the peon events and do this position that they didn't know how it was gonna work. So I showed up and they put makeup by me. And I realized that make up on me might be doing on camera. And then they tested that out in the beginning. And kinda ran with it. And they would just ask a you're in there. Do you want to jump in? And I think we're just kinda swinging from the hip at the moment will I gotta say you're swinging from the hips looking pretty good. So there was there was no formal triumph for this or anything. No. Wow. That's so unusual television. I'm sure you know, that like just to get your dry run as the live version of it. It's highly unusual. What if? That is. I think they will. They told me that they might go on might not. So I think they tested it on the on the ESPN, plus the prelims prelims. So, you know, I guess it was going well because they kept me on every every part. So now have they discussed since then what their plan is. Yeah. At first they wanted me to do every everyone, and I just said, hey, man, I'm I'm super busy with with onyx and with athletes, and I don't wanna take on too much. And they wanted me to see if I could do everyone just hold on internationally at the moment..

"So partly it was a fact-finding mission. If folks could tell that Josie was good, and this was all unnecessary fine. I don't I understand people's objections. I think sometimes you got to go on a fact-finding mission. And that's what this was. Yeah. And not horrible. But I can I can definitely see concerns. All right. Let's talk about although one more time. Monday dyers Mexican calling from Los Angeles, California. And my question do with Josie, although job with the Rams last two fights looked like a beast like his former self where do you see him going from here because essentially he's an position similar to Joseph entity is your right or is that they're always right now criminal the number one best fighter behind the champion. That's where all though is right now behind Holloway. You seem up to fifty five because matchups possibly trying to way too lightly pouch or do you see him staying forty five? Conrad went on Twitter saying you still so when is the possibility of all Dover, Connor UC to thirty seven to Kurt Tiba in soccer stadium. So that's my question much. Love have take care. Good tell you. I'm just not like, I don't hate it or anything. But like this thing we're like, oh, an event ends and Connor just gives his thoughts on it. And like I've react to it. It's like, I don't not that. I guess to say I don't care. It's not true. But I don't like especially care. You know what I mean? Yeah. A lot of fighters way in I feel like it you feel like I do get where we're where it's coming from. Because in a sense Conor McGregor is very he's not out. There tweeting like twenty four seven like hashtag give four. Oh, what a great right to shares opinion, of course. Yeah. So he might fight Josie. But so any tweets it does feel like oh shit. Like, you know, maybe maybe if he's on something here. So it's like, it's like, oh, you know, like the king has weighed in now in we all have to pay attention. It's also like, well, let's just his opinion. We should all move on with our day. We over we overemphasize. I think the importance of it to a degree that being said. What do we tribute this to without? Okay. Couple of things number one three round fights. I think is an important part yet. He is he doesn't have to conserve his energy. I think he he was conserving his energy a bit in those five around fights. I also got a bit content. I'll be honest with you. I think he got a little content to just win rounds? And and go about things he knows the end is I felt that way when he when he was fighting Frankish, and when he fought chance on John I just didn't really feel any urgency for him did get to finish the sort of. It was a bit of an yes, he did. I mean injury. Yes. To me three around fights number one. You know, here's a thing. He still fighting very good fighters Jeremy Stevens and now in the top. But it's a step down from the super championship caliber. So I'm not going to say it's easy competition. What I'm going to say is relative to the max Holloway's or Conor McGregor on that run. He was on. It is a step down from that. Okay. So there's that. But also do he's got like he's fighting with aggression, man. Like those body shots. He's landing. You saw. Album. He's it's not accidental dude. And he's gotten good at it. And he's just putting stuff behind it. So the thing is it's like I'm so glad this is happening because during that whole Conor McGregor chapter. I'm not saying this because I think in his mind, he knew how good Josie was. But the trash talk, which I get was part of the I don't begrudge him that. But some fans got convinced that like Josie was never fought anybody or wasn't that good. He's literally one of the best fighters ever. And you're finally getting a chance to see that. Maybe he's passed into the point where he can't beat max Holloway. Okay. But bro, he will put the wood to other other guys in this class..

"Ten thirty. What am I supposed to do with my night? Now, I have no wonder caller, hang out with I go meet girl fizzy. What do with the rest of my night now that they're done at a reasonable hour. First of all Diego. You're absolutely, Tracy. The ESPN timing was made it was that not being serious about this. I didn't realize how bad it was. Sorry. Collapsed here. I didn't realize I didn't realize how much it was taking out of me. I was literally watching those F S one cards resentful of the sport. I cannot believe I've wasted my stupid life doing this. And now I feel like oh my God. Like, what do you want to do go to the bar read a book do some sit ups? Learn how to cook go to great courses. Plus, I don't know sit there and say fief go to bed early. You got so many options. Those things you can do with your life. Now in Brooklyn, go get some food, man. There's food in Brcko get some Komeda, whatever you gotta do man to me. I was sitting in watching being like, I had no idea. What I was missing. No idea what it felt so much better. It was that F S one cards the way they were doing it was such a tax on our lives. I hate it actually for the media too. Because you know, the fans watch fights when they're over there over right like stick around for the press conference. Right. They're working that night that night. I was watching a fight house tweeting them life, but I was in necessarily working. So after I was I was done with the fights. I was done. Yeah. And man, it was awesome. I I went to celebrate. My friend's birthday saw your Instagram story. Yeah. Shot concerns. I of though, she it's birthday on Tuesday. So we went out to celebrate. And I can't believe all the things that I did on Saturday because like we start at what like six PM usually with the F S one car. It takes up your entire day. I look I'm sure some are going to go late. The paper views are still doing what they are. But this is the best part about it before they had to make every card work for f s one schedule. And so you were having cards in Argentina or in Chile or in Brazil that were ending three or four local time in the morning something absurd now they get to put it back. When you're when you're streaming. It doesn't matter books are gonna catch it live. They're going to catch it after the facts microphones having some issues here. So you can have it end at a reasonable hour in Brazil and not have to worry about it anymore because you're streaming one of the benefits of streaming on the other hand one of the downsides is I'm not sure how many people saw it that was kind of concerned. Yeah. When the fight card actually rolled in. I was like looking at the main car, I'm like oh shit. There's actually a pretty good card like this a solid card. But for some reason it didn't feel like a big event. I wonder if maybe if they would've switched the Coleman. And main of Jose Aldo was featured as the main guy. I wonder if that would have changed anything around because he is a former champ pay per view. You know, he's done so many of us as well. I I can't claim to have watched ESPN on Sunday. So I don't know if they covered it at sportscenter. I don't know what they did. But everything just felt so Super Bowl heavy on Sunday. That kinda drowned out a big weekend for sports. Oh, you know what? I mean. It's like I wanted to see how it goes. By the way, I didn't realize do y'all call the Super Bowl super tests on it super. I believe that's more in Mexico is actually really big in Mexico for folks. I know literal Super Bowl like a bowl of cereal. Yeah. But tests on. Yeah. That's funny. Okay. What's next? All right. The saw about some matchmaking. So about that Kumon event. All right. Jack from New York. So I kind of a, you know, general comment about all of them. What kind of I believe that matches title Beijing by the gifts e? Easy situation for your if all the way, she obviously kind of McConnell shrubbery and Kim I'll kill off one of the greatest concerns in Brazil..

Like, do you think he is going to get the title shot next to you think he's done enough because of the popularity side the wind is not exactly at his back. Yeah. You know, I think it's a it's a weird time, and that, you know. There's there's no there's no consistency. You know? There's no like, oh, you know, he's to this. Then tease your panel shop, or you know, if you rent this high and beat somebody that's rank this high. There's really like, no, consistent consistency. It's the first year was VN. You know, would only what's going to happen. As far as what's going to dictate that if they're gonna bring the big fights to to you know, to favor view and try to sell what paper views or they're gonna do big fight on. You never know what they're doing to me that the biggest the biggest thing that I've noticed since the new ownership took place, just like, you know, you just trying to observe and you know, you wanna win. And if you wanna you wanna be a champion, and and that part, I think there there's been like a little lack of systems like all these super fights. And and you know, Khanna's kinda like attitude that a little. Bit. And and often in a good way. You know, if if they're not see huge fight and all that huge the best fight. The fires fight each other. And I looked at the PG dillashaw with said who the ones very interesting fight for now. What now you have a champion? They just lost somebody on the lower weight class and was that for the entire division. And then do a show one of the best one thirty five years is one of the best thirty five history. So now what you know nearly as far as this, whereas football, I think really good too. And you know, I think that the best position you could be to do everything right with what you have called of you know, like it's like the best guys like decisively, and, you know, violently, you know, like, I think that people looked at him, and you see special fighter that from this new generation of present guys where there aren't many special fires. And then I have to say that I am from your. You know, I see huge huge gap between you know, the generational. You know, Anderson and deep door, and and, you know, Middletown, and even they who's now on the leader in his career. He's never wanna fight over. It's been the most successful is in your history as far as finishes and fights. But you know, I think at the mall is gonna end up being like a superstar. He was doing just because of how good he is. And the more he fights the more people are going to that before in Brazil here, they lack like, you know, someone really look up to now especially out probably like all those lots year. I think is in a great position. And and you know, just gotta keep working patience. And you know, you're going to get where you're supposed to get. If he doesn't get the next title shot. It'll be a crime not saying crimes don't happen. But it would be a crime. If he didn't get it. He looked nominal. I'll just say this. Ricardo congratulations. You guys are doing great things. Over here in New Jersey. And I was just blown away by Marlon? I hope that you have see feels the same as I do because that guy is special. Thank you so much for your time. Thank you so much for having me. And yeah, let's fight against wanna on guys. Find just here. Guys. Like, sometimes I forget how good the art. And the piece got Eddie like at the end of March.

"I'm a huge fan of Fiji is the be some of the things on is probably one of my favorite guys to watch like his striking. You don't like in and out very looses. And we have a lot of fools, but I don't see their hand like a super complete guy. And then I can just wait for if you're not gonna threaten everything that was a huge evolution Sughu or in the second fight with with mighty mouse where he was able to threaten the house was able to hit him kick him. And I. That's that's what made him be able to beat the they'll show. I don't like have to worry about these. That's about all these other things. And I think in a fight where you know, more TJ, I think the winner has been the guy that's feeble to be more complete and threaten with different things. You know? And and I think it's a great match up for months out how much of the loss that TJ just suffered. How much of that? Do you attribute to the wake cut? Man. You never know. You know, that's the sports. And like, I said earlier, you know, you think you think the two or three or five guys in each way cloth. And it's literally like a role of the vice that. And a lot of times is what happens on that day. What happens on that we as far as the weight cut? I think that if I if I had to nitpick on on something, I think the weight cut, my might have affected him because we haven't seen, you know, get rock, you know, like that and one twenty five or. Like, he's a guy. And you know, every wrestler is strong hell has good hands. But he's not known for devastating power or anything like that. You know? So it makes me wonder if the wake up was just too much, and and and just from personal experience if I have to say anything at this. Yeah, we definitely affecting the way that doesn't mean that you're gonna be you know, under percent hydrated during the fight. Like, no matter what the no matter what the scare you all the scientists there just certain things in fighting just you know, and then that led to the I won't call. I won't call Marlins post-fight speech hilarious, although certain admissions about his biological condition were a little bit. With Chuck chuckling about in the way that he described them, but in all seriousness, I guess he was sick. Can you tell us how sick he was during the week? And he was so anyone of us 'cause they wanna worry it. You know, we got to you got to do. And like, you know, like the us that he had Celtic. But you know, like, not like the extent, you know. 'cause we got there Friday yet or made wait, I did notice they look whiter than normally does, you know? But he never complained to me never said anything, and as far as speech that Marlin, you know, like sometimes can be emotional, and he's very sincere one hundred percent of the fine. You know, one of the most simple and humble that is and and and his very sincere. You know, like he he wears his heart on his league and everything he does. And he's the guy that you know, what you see is what you get. And if he's gonna talk about. On you know, the whole world always better condition than than the whole gonna have medical condition. But that's just that's This just. is very sincere. Okay. But in the end, he got the he got the WTO. Here's the only thing about this Ricardo that I do think works against him. You know, he's headlining the shows. And that was a great show in Brazil, not really his win. But the vibe was great. And from a spectator's position on, you know, in the United States watching on the ESPN plus app, it looked phenomenal..

"We don't yet. Like he's ever. Really, super flashy is just devastating. And like, you guy, he'll do X is a big thing kick knockout, you know, that was that was devastating also like super flashy, and and more on you know, without flash. But with you know, decisive violence to finish these so always people are gonna think authentic guy gonna think they have that whole Idaho. Or you know, his been some fights. It's finished so quick. They haven't really had too short. A, you know, by the way, have you gone back and watch the fight on video yet. I have. And I just I I was actually at the airport the leading if I left bite after the fight. I went straight to the fourth and I saw the finish. But yeah, just finishing combo where he's lips throws like cut in the hook. And you know, steps back drops in aids the first right hand, and they just the speed. It's another another one to look incredible Stephen pollen that in that. And then to follow up and finish. It was just I had my mouth open at the and all that. How did you just do all that in like two minutes? You know, what's crazy? Okay. Here's one thing. I'm legitimately asking. Because I have no idea, obviously, he won via mounted arm in guillotine. But I went back, and I watched this euro black belt high level one that s on Sal had both his hands free. And then brought them both to the inside to defend. Why did he do that? I think that we're more fun of the squeezing. He pulled guard. He was free. And I think that I think that also the arm down to try to block the as you roll, you know, and moral smart step step, though, the leg on the same side of the chill for the one that you kinda you know, you you want the the guys who you'll be traveling there and like on the role. He was to end up evolving, climbing get the arms phones arms which trap, and then the after pool that on out from the on those stuck into to be finished. You know, so to top three, and I and I couldn't say from the aim of that I were just see Marlin like dropping the hips and having to four arm to tap. I don't I don't know. A lot of the transition guys. Don't don't try to do that. But as you as you will, you know, you end up above the arms couple of finishes. Very Gary have been a couple of things like that. Interesting. Okay. I'll go back and look at it another time because that would kind of confused me was a little weird. But it was devastating all the same. And you get a tap from half L sons how you earn it. And at he certainly did. Now that leads us to the next step. You have got to like his chances against anyone that way class. Tell me how in your mind that you think Marlin matches up with TJ dillashaw. Yeah. The the power and defense all of of mar on, you know, and and I think the the shorts trying to move around and you kind of comment from angles and things like that. And I think on the first style for more. I think do assures weakest spot is wrestling to be honest. I mean, he's not the guy that could you know, Britain with a whole lot of faith down and take down like old is, but it's gotten thanking all along. And I don't think that he has like the down button. I mean, you know, I wanna take this down this dead. So then you're gonna fight bond standing for twenty five minutes. I just I just think it's all, you know, like, not the from from Jamie..

"All right. We go decks to Skype machines assume you stay busy today. Truly one of my favorite people in the sport former fighter himself, and if a nominal coach, I don't think it's nearly enough credit. I wanted to get him on the show today. Even though he's been traveling Ricardo Almaeda. Hey ricardo. Why some people call you Ricardo when we call every other Ricardo in the sport hit Cardo, which which is it. I don't know, man. I guess I've been in the US full too long about too many people think I'm presented anymore. You know, I'm not sure about school both ways from thank you so much for having. Then of course, we're talking to you one of my favorite guys in the sport. First of all, congratulations. Could that have gone any better for Marlin yesterday? Did we lose him? Singles fade. Let's see what's up with that signals you want to put the thumbnail up. We get him back. Let's get them back here. Is he still in Brazil? He must be. That money Brazilian internet. I can't talk too much. I thought that that men signal I is horrible. Also, I forgive me if it's pretty bad. No, you're back. Now. There we go one more time. Let's try it. Again. How was how would you rate that win for Marlin? Man. I think it's a ten out of ten, you know, you know, kill case all his his power speed is timing is a finishings things. You know, I think mall is the guy that you watch pads or you watch him even just warm up, and you're always special, and sometimes it takes many fights for people just to show that in a fight and mall has been shown that you know, every fight centers. I fighting that you have see. So I think it was perfect for him to come back. And and beat the only guy that he had lost two in the fast. I don't know five six years. You know, you know, what it was? I was just watching this fight. There's so many things I liked about what he did. Let me start with one thing. And it's not what he did is who he is. We talk about the best athletes in the UFC for some reason. I don't see Marlins name on that list. Ricardo my God. Marlin is a phenomenal athlete. Why don't why doesn't he get credit for that? Aren't we got this? Let's call him back. Let's put up the phone. Now, we got a call him on the phone because we gotta get this done the right way, I'm dying to have this conversation. Plus get to the sound off dunks. What I'm saying gotta keep this train rolling. But I said it before on the Monday morning analysts like, I'm not saying people don't consider him, a good athlete. That's not my point. But like if you're listing aling all who's a phenomenal athlete. I don't usually see moorlands name banded about it needs to be it needs to be and again, not because he's some raw athletic power. Who does nothing else? No, no, no. I think part of the reason people don't bring it up. And this is just a theory. I don't really know is because he is so technical, right? He s he looks physically strong. But he is so technical. He is so sharpie is so well rounded that he doesn't necessarily need some of the things. So he doesn't like lean on them in such a way where you know, you'll Romero is so athletic, but you know, he got into MA in his late thirties or early forties. And so he has to lean on a little bit more Marlins. Not that way. And so I think folks don't necessarily consider him one of those guys. But Jesus man, he is a ridiculous athlete. It's kind of amazing to watch. Are going to try and get him back here on the on the phone because internet is not money. But I thought that was just I mean how much better of a win could that have possibly been for Marlin? It's hard for me to imagine. It could have gone better. That was just amazing an amazing amazing wind. Number one contender has to be right has to be I spoke to dillashaw. I wanna say..

"You know, he hit me in the fourth round with a right hand. He actually was a twice. But that was I think it was it was more on on my fault. You know, rushing it with my hands down than anything. Still didn't he still was kind of confused? You still really didn't have an answer. And it was still a very close fight both of them. We got the draw the first fight the second five was controversial. So I don't I don't think he's got my number. You know, my sows very hard to you know, to bring in fighters four, and and to prepare for so, you know, I think it's going to be an exciting finance, and he pedestals he's got some really good striking come from his background, his taekwondo background. So I think he's going to be fun. Now, we're folks to zoom out. They take the macro perspective. They say. I'll Anthony Pettus good striker wonderboy Thompson, good striker. But you're very different kinds of strikers, you kind of alluded to it. But in concrete terms, our audience can understand why are you different? Strikers. It. I think the way. No. He's more of a I'm more of a mover. I think more of an angler when whenever I whatever I fight whenever you seen you fight. I work a lot of angles used to my kicks a lot. I think so more variety of kicks in than than than pedestals. Yeah. He's got some crazy kicks man off. The cage was called the pet is kick. Now that he's in and w w St. Showtime. But I think I don't know. Yeah. The Showtime kid. That's right. It's Showtime kick. But I don't know, man. That's a good question. Like, it's it's kind of it's it's very difficult to break down. Because we all we have some similarities we ask differences. Well, I think he's he uses he's more well rounded like he's submitted. Some really good really good high level grapplers in the past. I mean his last fight at one. It was one fifty five he submitted a Kisa, you know, John thought was going to go the other way around. Yeah. He's submitted. And it was gonna work now guess has moved up to one seventy defeated Carlos Condit. Oh, I think that's another reason why he thinks he's gonna do well in the ones offended division because you got a lot of one fifty five or smooth up. Of course Cowboys thrown he did well as done well in my division. He's moved back down. But yeah, man, it's. I always think under better striker. I I'm definitely a better striker than Pettus. So I've got the reach on them. I'm faster than him. And I'm coming with more power and fair to say, you have just a more unique style. Now, Anthony Pez has a very unique style and take some risks. But is generally I would say some an this is going to sound crazy. But you're right in terms of that moving thing, you do that is much more rare even with that creativity that Anthony pedestal. So it's fair to say, he's probably not fought a lot of louvers like you. And again, I'm not saying you fought Pedersen's clone. That's not what I'm saying. But someone a little bit more in that tradition. Yeah. I agree and your start, but you are starting to see more of that style. And he come see I mean gonna Nelson because from karate background Conor McGregor. When he fought Josie Aldo is movement man was on point. And he uses that movement to really lured his partner in and is opponent in. That's why ended up landing that left hand. And I and I'm, you know, fight the same way Anderson Silva, the notified that way as well. And now you see in Israel donnas doing the same thing. So you're starting to see and one of the best MVP. Venom can amazing. So you're starting to see more and more of it. But a lot of these guys doing this for years. You know, they've been doing this for a very long time. So it's hard for just some Joe blow to pick it up and be able to do it out there in the octagon, you know, in in six weeks, or whatever. So, but you are seeing seeing more and more of that style. What do you make of the wills who had division today? You..

"That's how I got the word that he was calling me out. So of like, you know, what I I'll take anything in. And I'm not gonna this is this is not a fight that I'm gonna take lightly. He does have some very good striking. He's got a knock. How real so? But you know, I welcome to open arms to one seventy. So here's what I was thinking about tell me if I'm wrong. What I thought was it's obvious. What he gets feed beats you. He beats top-five guy in the division of referring four last it jumps him right to the front of the queue. Plus he'd have a win a third way class all that stuff. So that part I get for you though. Do you mentioned he does have a name, and he is coming up to one seventy you are a natural one hundred seventy founder, you are taller you fit into this the body type that works well in that weight class much more effortlessly, so for you. It's a more manageable fight true or false. I would say true. I would say true. I mean. Yeah, he is coming up into my way. He doesn't have to cut the way, you know, I guess that could be a positive maybe. But you know, I'm not a big welterweight. I'm not amass wealth way like tiring. I don't have to cut a crazy amount of weight, you know, fifteen pounds team pounds. But you know, you hear guys cutting twenty five hundred pounds before fight. And so I'm I'm not strain the next day. You've never seen me step out there after we cut and just except for once when I found that Brown, I was walking around to fifteen so, but you know, I'm not a big welts way. So it's going to be easy. You said that other Walter weights were saying no to opportunities with you. Well, you know, I tried to get the laws pushing law. They're really hard. You know, I was pushing it UFC was saying that it may or may not happen while it was saying it was going to happen. And then I was in New York, hoping Chris widened get, you know, pray for his fighting in South Korea Soza, and then they announced that he was finding asking something. All right. So I tried to fight already. He said he was having surgery you on Edwards. He said, it's I- adequate was acting up and then punch Navio. He just said, no, you know, so. It just wasn't working out for me. So I was just willing to take anything to be honest with you. So for you. It's more important to stay busy than it is to wait for the right opportunity. Yeah. It keeps you in the long like you go you see you see this fighters all the time. If you're not if you're not saying that, you know, you kind of you kind of put on the shelf a little bit. And you know, I I'm still going for that title. I'm not giving up on it. And I think with with some wins a matter who it is going to keep me where on that. Or hopefully, we'll put that in the you put me with a good win over Pettus in the US's mind, take let's push push guy up a little bit. Let's get them a fight with us with another top five guy. You know, there's a lot of guys right now who are like to five what they have coming up. But so it just wasn't working out for me in the one seventy, you know, the past few months, so keeping my things cost and next thing. You know, you know, Anthony PETA is calling me out. So I was like sure out was to it. And I think he thinks he's got my number. You know, all the time and twice. He's got. He's got the same coach coach from his and Rufus thinks she's got my number. So i'm. I'm here to prove them wrong. So you you believe that that Rufus thinks he has your number. No, no. He says that. Yeah. He comes from a karate background, you know, Anthony pedestals from taekwondo background. But you know, I don't you know, parents at different fighter instill. He didn't have an answer for me..

"He's not someone that's easily marketable when it comes to he's on persona. That's that's the hardest part. I think against who. Does a great guy knee means well, but he is a different individual that. He more speaks with his talents. That of you know, his mouth convert version calling all those other guys. But it sounds like what you're playing with your career is, you know, I talked to a lot of guys leave the UFC and they go. Yeah. You know, what I might go back one day? Never know. You're still young. You never know where your life could take you. But when you think about a return to the UFC is that even a real thought. Honestly right now. No, we'll get them twenty six. It was just released. I'm in a new promotion brave. And that's that's the biggest venture. I'm looking at right now. We'll see, you know, time takes me. We'll see we're we're the world takes. But right now when it comes to the U of C, it's more of not money. But it's respect, you know, it's it's not just respected myself. But respecting the fighters in general, and I just don't see for mainly the flyway to the smaller guys again. I've noticed if you're not there. They're number one guy. If you're not the guy that's trying to build up, then, you know, who cares? Even look shortcut save north cut left with a positive record. But he still was released as low and now he's making something big in in one of scene. I think that's amazing for him as well. So in the end is it I don't know if it's good that the UFC got rid of the fly with division. But if you are getting opportunities to make more money to do commentary to do events all over the world on some level. I guess that is kind of good, right? I mean, it's it's amazing. What I have right now. I mean, I'm I'm. Telling you what I what I'm receiving right now from brave is something I expected from the most popular promotion the world, which is you of see. But that's not the case in. I've learned that even though you have seized on this pedestal. It's not the pinnacle of the sport. There's so many other promotions out there that can easily take care of you that much better than for me. Brave is that promotion, and I mean, the only two years that believes they're the force if not third big promotion that have gone the fourteen countries. I think the fights in the Philippines. There's ten fights all ten fighters from different countries. Now, they're extremely global promotion. So they're now just going. Hey, you're American. We're for me in you know, that went to Philippines. Yeah. Their main events Philipino. But there they literally have everyone my guys from London from what I know, you know, so all these countries is literally country versus country in representing their nations as a in a sense of bigger or more professional world championships, or I gotta tell you. I wish you nothing. But the best of luck in your the next chapter of your career March fifteenth right, by the way, how can folks watch. The fight. That one I know brave those have their own online streaming service. I can't remember the actual website. It's like brave dot TV dot something at the end. But overall anyone wants to look up brave themselves just type it in on Google braids CF, and I mean Alder Infos on their website most of the time it's either on YouTube or through a streaming service..

"So you're not champion out there, you know, Brian Ortega guy that they're really trying to promote them, then say, you're just, you know, meet to the wolves euro. So for me, that's what I was again, forty five days to fights. I lose twenty six and twenty eighth didn't tear. It was either you fight or that was my my contract for sports you'll fight now in twenty eight time, you're probably not going to fight again until next year. It's like that's more than four to six months. And I don't know when next year is I don't know if you're saying early next year mid next year with the end, so we're going to hold me for, you know, my my my basic contract all along gonna last me. You know, I still have to pay my Bill this up to do different things. I have the now since being adult. So it's it was a struggle. But with brave I had no what's Logan. I know and being taken care of it. Well, I have to ask one question about this just have to do my due diligence. It does sound like they cared deeply for you in. This is going to be a great deal. It is tied to the butter any government, which does have some human rights issues any concern about being in business with them. As a consequence. I'm honestly, no. Because I'm not a very political person. I don't know much about that, you know, from what I see I do talk to the shank. I do talk to Mohamed shy hidden. I do talk to everyone involved in brazen cage. But for me, that's never come into my light. That's never come into my life. I'm not saying it's not a problem. But for me, this is not what folks folks in. I'm fighting building my croon. That's just what's in front of me. And it concerns not concerns. Exactly. But like you're going to be fighting in Manila, you'll probably fighting in buffering to publicly fighting places outside of the US any concern about that. In terms of building a brand as a US entity. For me. And this is something brave is doing as well as the US markets detect, you know, everyone's really trying to get guaranteed opportunities. Very very little, but there's not many stars outside of the country. I mean, I went to Saudi Arabian, we're we're in the mall in Saudi Arabia just hanging out doing over workouts in people Reno my name before I'm even science the promotion or even publicly signed to the to the promotion. So it's it's a huge thing to finally in a sense nail. Why why can for example, Manny Pacquiao from the Philippines, be huge star in the US? But we can't be huge star for pains. So for me, it gives us a different market of. I don't want to just be known around USO want to be known around the world mainly for being a two time. I'm fro- champion. Now, Senate time Tennessee defending champion. I wanna be another champion Nefer me as a hopefully to division Bernie champion. That's around the world is global promotion. That's the market. I'm looking at. I don't know what your views were on fighter unions before have they changed as a consequence of this process. I wouldn't say they changed completely because I do believe there should be something more for fighters. The union is obviously very hard. Because fighters are expendable we come and go to our injuries constantly in. It's it's insurance wise and Bill and all that stuff. It gets extremely complicated. But I do believe fighters easily should be paid more. Because again, I thought once you know, defending trying to win another ball for Tennessee broke, my hands for my CFO, saying the fight for another six or seven months, and what happens just in case if that fight ends up backing out if that fighter ends up getting injured than I have to wait possibly a few more months. So, you know, the pay is very low for someone else's entertainment. What did you make by the way of how TJ dill show looked at one twenty five he made the cut but the fight ended a little bit early..

"And you have to ask what is the appropriate role of the commission. The commission is not there to pick up where law enforcement didn't that's not their job. If they want to sanction a fighter they can. And they should. But there should be appropriate limits on that the state of California only allows a twenty five hundred dollar fine for any kind of infraction, and they can double that. If it's against the spirit of the sport or something to take five hundred thousand dollars from him is unconscionable. It's irrational, and frankly, psychotic.
