"Of being close to. We can't leave it to the judge. Exactly let's get a takedown. Let's make sure we win no matter what. And that's going to happen at this level like all these guys get all So you're GonNa have close fights I just. I didn't have the the the experience of being one before I needed somebody with us. So it it You know I kinda learn a little bit from both of them losses you know you learn more from losses. I think you can do to win. One hundred percent that third fight when you're fighting Gregor vaguer was the stress like 'cause just before you show your stories I remember I lost too-narrow lost a Gear Asta Rothwell my manager caused goes you. Yes Sir fight but you you lose this when it you know you me on pry chopping block. Gosh Josh yet man. Then they give me I think Lavar Johnson. This monster monster is remember going. That fight gear. God I got to win this. I felt so much pressure because I felt like if I lost someone like you know I can bounce around these other leagues where you're not doing it are you. But you're not doing it. Yeah yeah so I just. I felt the most pressure felt my entire life was on that fight Definitely that definitely. And that's why they like that fight for you. Then then other things was kind of coming into you know. The president trump has showed up a little bit before the fight. And you know those are like backstage stuff that people. Yeah people don't really see you know when you gotta go through even just the security and during that as the Big Orange Guy Walking through the back it adds to it you know. It's like I got a really show film. I did feel that a little bit but honestly haven't gone sound fucking cliche. Farrah's there in in in listening to his voices choices instead of my own voice. Play is like Oh trump is out here. Oh I got two losses in like oh I got and then I'm just listening to that one voice. Okay Jab you know defend. Is He present yet. Be Present in that moment. But that's why you have him. Yeah Yeah exactly I. It took a lot to pull pool that up Outta me but I feel like I mean the results Kinda spoke for themselves you know excuse phenomenal and now I just want to build on top of that when I go down a to Brazil and twenty thousand people that are all against me and I'm thinking like Oh man if I lose the Olivarez is done deal. You know my my career to be over here like think he's lost two other guys before you know it. These things are going to play into my mind like oh I wanNA fight Islam and Russia WANNA do this. I want to do that or I got such big goals is going to be on me to really focus in and do what I gotTa do and just focus in the moment. Just you know missing his leg. Kicks Tube Jabber no Ross there. Because he's been you're talking you're talking about some of the biggest fights in his history with GSP. You know fighting in his own own hometown in front of fifty five thousand people in August ship crazy. So this is this. Is You want your foxhole. Why a fight like this excite me? You know what I mean like. That's why I fight in in Russia. Excite me when we go into war with Iran and all that Shit. I'm thinking about all that in the back of my head Can I pool when I need to auto myself. You know what I mean those those type things that that Kinda give me up. I don't care about the fans I don't care about the the the fame I don't care I really don't even care too much about the money I do really I motive. That's not yeah. Exactly that's I don't think you can be the NBA that success. You know what I'm saying in fighting I you know I know. There's the Floyd Mayweather and congressman end of the day. There has to be something bigger than the than the paycheck. Roy Pride brought me for some people forget men when Floyd burst on the scene news. A fucking killer doubt putting on pressure fighter and stay stay Scott Higher. Even George. Saint Peter's there's more pressure to be repaid as he's smarter wasn't as exciting before smarter. Yeah there has to be something more than money. I I took because I'm telling right now. Let's say let's do all this and they give you a beep. I'm telling you right now could be BA fighting for money. Yeah Yeah you don't talk about the money. Yeah Yep we'll give Kevin did shop just sign. Yeah and that's the that's what you deal with your guaranteed album. Hey you can fight. You'll Romero yeah no money but it's still the belt yet. Let's do I don't get fucked. Yeah he'll do it. Yeah because because you get something more out of it for me I WANNA see if I if I've made some mistakes stakes in my career already. I know and I WANNA see. If if I'm past that point you know what I'm saying I want to see if I really learned from it and got better. Well that's Komo obscene test. But already you hiring for us is shown you learn from you fighting Greg showing up and knocking this. He's a stuntman. He's go go on. I know he lost that fight. He's go onto the top five guy watch what he's a monster so just by you hire for us do showing up the way. Perform your fight. You've obviously learned that. Yeah Yeah I want to do even more. I wanted to even more. I mean it's it's never enough to be honest. It's always want to do more and once I get the belt didn't that's GonNa be the real It's almost like assemble that you you've done it you've done it on through this journey Bernie Sanders in your corner.

So you'll not lost. No doubt ever you know yeah and and then yeah that'd be great it doesn't Connor. You got the those boys at at the top number five. Are you five. I I mean listen the the the the ranks are they going to be but he should be somewhere I I should. I should be number five on why they don't it's politics it's better but I lost one questionable decision against Al Iaquinta lightwave no other losses so I was talking about just engaging. You've been trying to go after for awhile. KOMO DEJA AIN'T GONNA fight you gotTa give up that spot dynasties turned down a lot of fight. Yeah I yeah I remember you saying yeah and he said No. You don't want it. I don't know you know me you got to fight as long as you and I have been talking going after Gigi and could be the The two top ones. I don't really go out to connor too much. Because he gonNa do what you're GONNA do Yeah Gay could be an Antonio's always there to Tony's really the top guy For a while until he loses to convene or some crazy but let's say that they have the mom. I'm Dana White. You beat you win. In Brazil you win and Russia. Are we close. Who who'd you fight end of the year it'd be pretty high up You know jumping ahead. But I'm just trying to. I was still a Lotta they momentum you know listen that built his mind they're going. They're going to fight for their belt. But yeah yeah but his mind is. That's what's going to happen at the end in twenty twenty one. I'm GONNA be detail. That's that's my only focused all the rest of talks or whatever like the mind so whatever they do or however they shake up as many times as they wanNA flip flop all that That title of mine so so I'M GONNA do. I'm a fight who I gotTA fight in order to get there. I gotTa beat Audience Guys Anyway. Be Some tough guy. That's why I'm not sitting out until Joel I'm GONNA have to fight somebody like Oliver Anyway Anyway. So I I feel like I'm the Timbre not so we might as well get it in. You're going the tough route. Say if you're on the the route because most guys in today's he's business for the most part they're just doing what's going to get the most money. What's can you the most eyeballs and and you know this is fighting Gregor whose undefeated prospect not? I didn't think it was smart. You know don't you start them and then fighting Charles in Brazil I mean all right fucking tough fight all right Islam and Russia Russia. Alright man. It's not it's not like they're these huge names but they're just these monsters going against. Do you think that do you have did did you ever. WHO's managing this? Who Do you talk through this man not sending the wrong way to you? I'm going against. I would say you know he he said you want the biggest fight for the most amount of money and the easiest. I'm kind of going against that. I'm taking a little money. Big fights big risk little reward. Why I couldn't make other people's lives a little bit easier? I just choose. I don't know I just shoes the hero I just. This is really the only option that I got left when I went down and I said I want him for nine hours and tried to make a fight with me. Islam happened happen in Brooklyn said that you sat down with the US. Yeah they didn't you and who else they didn't leave me. No other options you and me and my manager in Vegas. Data's Office for nine nine hours which is terrible for nine hours. Well is is a couple of hours here talking to hunter and they wanted me to. You know at left from narrowly come back. How long? Oh how how the talks go. Because I'll say it got me to sign so I let them I let them kind of have it. Yeah yeah they needed needed They needed a headliner. I'm the Martine fight so they wanted somebody to one nobody else can step up and do it and they take this slight for us and then we'll for you the then we'll give you is on. That was my my main thing. I want to Islam. And it's like Whoa. Why why are you gonNA rushing killer because he has a like a as a pure in the hard cores people love it? The last guy who I know. Who's like you in the same? Fashion would be style bender. He's guy who doesn't want the easy fight doesn't want his name. Let's reason why you'll Romero. He wants whoever come get it. He wants to defend the belt right. I and you're you're the same way but you don't see down a lot these days. Yeah I guess John John You know John just so much better everyone in real yes I do turn and learn from from a lot of people you know what I mean especially people who got respectful and look up to Islam's on I mean Israel is one of those dudes for Out of Sonya I think he approached the game a lot better than than than people even give them credit for like even a couple years ago they not.

"Back ab in quantum mountain before the fight he was doing some weird stuff on my number on twitter saying this was trump's number I had one like that Shit so depending on the bill before that you know and now I'm like I'm like I'm thinking wait a minute he did that dumb shit he should run it back punk you got lucky that fight because I gotta drop he which is on his as J. destruction tall so he's got a man to be like oh my fucking bad but the people are people as interested in the rematch. If that didn't happen maybe fans addressed the thing I don't think people are unlike of yeah no one would be like hey let's really want it back but Israel I have a lot of respect for it makes sense I'm not going to be talked about this guy you talk to you but there are a thing where all these fighters so good so what makes you interested in the personalities why do you think Colby is I I I first half hours great second but he was playing these voicemail and he he actually feels good about the condition all he was in takes credit for it or he took credit for it really didn't blame rage of that he was not you know we we look up to I'll even revere frazier's he's just another guy that I punched in the face oh he didn't like him yeah famous who are famous for getting my amazing that second the one fight that Ali did get up either and frazier just quit I like by a few seconds in the one that Ali who's offended fourteen threat was coming up with the fourteenth fifteenth round where frazier just couldn't do it and had taunted him so much and eventually told Marvis frazier that he didn't mean he told his son Joe she would have told me that but anyway the shit talking eight Ali Yeah it looks like I'm on my phone which I am bombing shows we get picked up the posted so they have to leave a little earlier so I'm like what time is a little early if I could be there by two by you guys were getting me I am I going yeah right whereas airport where we're getting me sorry I don't put my fucking bag off the long island railroad ready to that's a big bag for two days stock with blue choose little big yes hi I mean Denver I'll have I'll look colon in the all right good how you doing Kevin I'm in build yeah you got Jim and Matt and also all your riots here I'm not sure if the cameras saw up what's going on but you know all right you only seem at all you say mantra yeah again you want to sit here and move over because all if all these CEO's Matt Yeah All right you got it are so so so Kevin talked to us man how did this fight would gregor get set up it's an interesting choice here Gregor really the the main thing with me I want to date you know I wanted to fight November it was either between Gregor or it was going to be Islam November it was like the next week in Moscow Kinda wanted that fight Islam you know he he butchered around he said he wants more time off so they approached take Gregor it really is not a super fight you know he he's really really dangerous not a lot of people know he's trying to make a name out of out of me so appropriate with the name I I went ahead inside the deal I liked it you know you did say it's funny you said the stupid five I was asked about that you said it was a dumb fight and you did mean you didn't that wasn't a mistake you meant like hey this kind of risky fight to take as dangerous it's dangerous I think any manager would have told me you know let's say somebody like a da Go Sanchez let's you know get somebody on the doubt let's not get this undefeated wrestler who is really hard to even look against in trying to build build up especially coming up in two losses like I'm not somebody like Donald Shy away from you know what I'm what I'm getting myself into so a little bit but that's what I like I like it but no no risk no reward man he doesn't have an L. on his record did you take him out and you do it in style you give him his first you're right back in the mix main yeah that's kind of interests me about the whole thing you know in his style is so hard to deal with he he's the most decorated wrestler at one fifty five so I feel like you know I it's a big challenge so these kind of price that Kinda gets up in the morning is is getting ready to train again like as soon as I hang up you know I I'm constantly in the gym now give me a little bit extra motivation to go out there and but all in front of his people and you jumped up to fight Rda we do you plan maybe staying there for a little while or was it just kind of a test to see how you liked it and then you decided and walk us through what got you up there to begin with you know honestly I was thinking about staying at West Seventy and I really tried to get bigger you know I acids Kinda Kinda played a factor in their fight So you know these last couple months I kinda tried to get a little bit bigger my body just wouldn't you know I it found that that natural state where wanted to be in really it was smaller than when I was down to fifty five so you know things got like really logjam at once seventy you know everybody kind of everybody the top twenty twenty-five we're all booked didn't WANNA fight or or or whatever so the opening fights was at one fifty five that's where all the smoke was so after seeing like how could be is dominated and he doesn't really have a great opponent after he gets through Tony Ferguson I feel like I can go ahead and make waves happen where did you where did you have your camp for this fight I'm up in Montreal so I've been here for four weeks now three more or less than a fight so I'm up here training Tristar with with Rod tell me about that experience man this is new for you and we know he's genius yeah it was crazy it first time I've ever liked gone away from home to do a can't so I it's it's been crazy it's really just came up here just you know I felt like I've been missing that that that God on a push me like I'm pretty sure you're right here you know like you got that guy you got Clayton went when Clayton say something you're gonNA listen to them on you're going to do what he's saying and like I kind of miss that a little bit so Arroz got those is he he's watching me every day like being able to to be in the gym in it a little bit better and like trying to impress them a little bit by noticed these past couple of weeks when you were at one one seven was did you feel a difference I even the RDA had gone up at one point two di- did you feel like this heavier guy or a guy who's used to fighting it that way got to you by the the fourth round with did you feel like your gas tank was different that way you know I think it was I think it was my approach to the fight I don't necessarily think it was it was the owner it was my approach it was my strategy going into it I'm just sometimes I felt like I just kept going for it like a Pumpkin Superhero where I'm like even on running my cell phone read I'm like okay can keep want I can keep doing it where somebody rda he's a former champion is so much experience he used that against me that's why I needed I think that's why I made the switch in Doosan a head coach like virata hobby because he has so much experience and I can really listen to him and he can tell me like aid you know like let's approach with a better strategy lets you don't have to burn yourself out you know you can kind of Dane from his experience who through all his years of Tonia a guy that have a hard time with he's not afraid to be on his back you know before I thought at fight with Dustin I thought Tony was do it which is almost harder everyone knows what his game plan is and he manages to still pull it off you may be yeah I mean I don't know and I remember seeing the video you playing a video game while you're driving your Tesla you shift for that I know all right thanks thanks again Monday via

"Start doing everything right. You can't just go ahead did everything right now and now that I have a wonderful batch of chocolate chip cookies. It's not a recipe unless unless you understand it's designed for lengthen. It takes some time I think of Corey Anderson stays vocal stays winning stays active stays agreeable with the organization stays in front of the media that correspond a pretty good spot. I also don't trust Corey from a historical standpoint to be able to stay focused and not getting his own damn way I see fighters get in their own way constantly and he appears to be one of these guys this far more on the entitled in to the responsible in and know I know that will not get him a title fight that will give the line cut Dominic Reyes will skip in front of him and he'll be a distant conversation however you do bring up Johnny Walker and I do think that fight between Corey Anderson and Johnny Walker has the ability to capture the imagination and even of core gets in his own way the rest of us can look at it and elevate him. Should he get the jump on Johnny Walker walks through Corey Anderson walks over like he has done everybody else. I've talking about the not only the first round the first minute of the I ran a that's going to be a pretty hard to stop Johnny Walker Weird. I'm from Portland. We have bumper stickers. Keep Portland Weird so I don't mean it as the insult is some other people would say but he is weird. He's got a weird weird hairdo. He's got a weird style. He makes weird faces. He says weird things in the microphone. He walks out to weird music. That's perfect. John Charles Walker has the it factor period. People Wanna see Johnny Walker. Five people know who Johnny Walker is. Johnny Walker got hurt in his last fight. The whole world up in arms arms they were so worried and concerned about him because he was going to take away their ability. I supply and demand of Johnny Walker. I mean look Johnny. Walker's got the factor. The dude the dudes goofy he's weird he wins. He's young he's new. He says he can beat John Jones. He's GonNa get a shot that prove it with a win over Corey Anderson you're going to have a two way race between dominant greys and a Johnny Walker and raise his hands full the world champion Chris Wideman by by the way so I think that you bring up Johnny Walker Corey Anderson. I think I think you're looking at the right couple of guys the competition and the NFL and college football scene is continuing continuing to heat up with some huge games this weekend that you're not gonna WanNa Miss on top of that right. Now is a great time to get all the sports parts betting action here this weekend just in college.

"I wanted him to know that he was a guest and that whatever we have does not carry over here. I have a job opt to do and by the way tonight is your night you just succeeded against Nick Diaz not me and I will not have certain myself into this anyway. I wanted him to know that but I don't really have an ability to tell him that or to let them know that that's what I wanted to achieve and he was very gracious. He was very polite. Finally comes to me. I ask him a question. First Time I've talk to them and said anything to him that wasn't mean spirited and he was created answer. The question that we did have a very brief back and forth it was live and it was it was a little uncomfortable it wasn't the time for it but it was a very brief back and forth and he was a gentleman but either way that was his night even if he had come at me and wasn't the gentleman on I've got my ego when I've got my pride but I also have a job to do and it's not that the job is you just did the heavy lifting I'm sitting up here in a suit drink coca cola the Niger Night Hijo from the UK here starting to the style of fighting could challenge Khabib is one with an elite level of wrestling who could prevent is take down and I can't say anyone in the lightweight division could do that so if you get through folks and what do you think about some of the match ups with some of the wrestlers in the World Tour Division for example who who's moon or even esp well sizes one way sizes one way to negate a wrestler eventually. It really doesn't matter how oh good you are versus the guy you're taking on if you weigh enough I've seen guys eat their way into success particularly in the heavyweight division. I've seen guys that weren't very good recipe. Fraud Klezmer klausner would be an example brock was not very good wrestler but he was huge. NC double as he was an undefeated NC double A. Champion what a tremendous honor and recognition right he it was the only guy in the weight class that had to cut to make the weight class the way class span from one hundred ninety eight pounds to two hundred sixty five pounds and Brockway to sixty five in the national and finally took on a guy that way two hundred and twenty pounds forty five pounds smaller than Bra. They went to double overtime now in my life. I've never wrestled a guy that outweighed by forty five thousand not even in the practice room coach. Keep US apart and be no point to do. This is who brock was competing against by the way it was for a national title that isn't meant to diminish brock I offered for it because because it's a name you would recognize with an accomplishment that you would appreciate and it proves the point that at some point in wrestling size would matter and that would just negate compete. How far can he go? I can only tell you practice from stories. Apparently he can go pretty damn far and still get the job done the thing with Khabib and his wrestling now how is it as greatly misrepresented wrestling is done by a sport in the open for example you will never see a cage around a wrestling mat. It's all done in the open so meant to flow and be in the open as soon as you put a cage there you now change the dynamics of wrestling that is not wrestling as we no one as we practiced them whereas that we can test it. It's only wrestling guys grabbing in a form of combat as opposed to strike in a form of combat so the m Emma a enthusiasts through a colloquialism. Andy Conversion of reality will call that wrestling now when a guy does a good job and I'm a former wrestler. I'm happy to sign off on that and take the credit for could be likes to give the credit to Sombo a which is not doing out there but that's what he likes to do. Why point that out is this could be wrestling in the open is not that strong?

"Do I have what it takes. I don't think this is strength. I've never thought this. I think this is strength. You're not going to press me. If you're strong here. You will impress me if you're strong here and I've always thought some of those long distance runners. That is an entire battle. Will I put in my tough enough to one foot in front of the other or do I want to just stop with absolutely no repercussion in fact the benefit of which my heart rate slows down. I served grab some water something to eat and I started rest and feel good. I've always respected did them so I guess I'm in I'm trying to think of your thought is you're saying I'm kind of inclined to lean towards something around track and field something that we get your heart rate up because that's very hard to do team sports. That's right. I mean baseball is very talented sport but it's a very lazy man's Game Golf should not be considered. A sport golf should be considered an activity something that you go. Oh Wow you don't get dirty. Oh and by the way you don't even break a sweat that guys that shouldn't be considered sport. You look at basketball. What a great life? That's fun. You're playing indoors. You never out in the rain. You're out in the snow rugby and soccer some of these other team sports that are rough and tumble but as far as tough and team sport art. That's a tough one. That's why you have the teammates at the going gets tough tag one of a man to ask if the commission's precautions for fighters art that legitimate I wanna ask this because I remember Tito saying that he fought with a cracked skull and what the MRI's and ekg's and x x rays that these guys go through on top of heaven doctor check them before they go out and Fi. How does that fly under the commission's radar? Yes the commissioners do a a very good job and there's there's a couple of categories first off. If you're coming over from amateur status to professional status you're GONNA have litany of cast because you've never been licensed before once you get licensed that can lessen a little bit and some of the tests that you've already done can be good for a calendar year. It can also be adopted to sister commissions and and transfer to make your life a little bit easier. It'll be looked at and reviewed and signed off. Maybe request you go do something new like some blood work just by example but for the most part yes it is very thorough. There's also a after they check absolutely everything out that they could think to do from the K. G. M. R. I.'s to a basic physical to your bloodwork. HIV HEP C. antibodies antigens manages after they go and do all of these things they will then ask you under penalty of perjury strata. Is there anything that we haven't covered that you think we should no do you have any ailment or injury that you need to let us know before we sign this up because now they are taking responsibility quite literally. If something happens they are now vulnerable to a lawsuit by example they will do a very thorough job so no whenever you see an athlete come out and say oh I had a broken hand when I went into that well if that were true he would then not have a license as simple as that you lied to the commission who then gets an insurance policy you you won't have a license. They will pull that that would be cheating to the highest levels. It is similar to the knuckleheads you have to deal with it will take a guy like floyd mayweather and say that he carried conor McGregor. It's illegal you can't do that. You have to go out there. Do Your job to the best of your ability and get the other out of there as quickly as you can't. That made me you don't get him. Ah The river at all but you must go out and do your job you cannot carry a guy you cannot throw a fight you can not through a minute of it. You cannot throwing round of a fight why why example but yes the commission to a very good job in any time you hear a guy trying to rework that I was heard I had this I had that he needs to understand right before the way and so twenty hours part of the fight he signed a form under penalty of perjury with a state agency. If you lied you're done with a it's Connor McGregor type A GS pay type or Chelsea southern type would like to know what the fundamental rules and principles that underlie someone who is successful in marketing themselves. My mind is spending because there's there's multiple answers that I'm trying to think of where where to begin but one of the first things into marketing marketing one zero one gay go go pick up any book. They'll tell you the same thing. Make sure you identify who you are before your competition competition does it for you. That's a big one. Also being consistent is a very big one. I mean some people will take to the highest levels like Ben Matlock from the television show matlock where or he wore the same suit each and every day because that was a way of branding and marketing yourself. That's a chapter that conor McGregor largely took but he took that from George saint-pierre even though connor came came out with the bow ties on George saint-pierre was the first one ever to show up in a tailored suit he would show whether it was the weigh ins to media day to a press conference. He's the only guy I looking like a star right. They say to dress for the job that you want not the job that you have saint-pierre showing up looking like an executive now connor grab that from him the mine was a little bit different where mine was largely with word and I never really got into the outfits and it wasn't because I didn't want to be fashionable guy because I'm colorblind. I got a hard time unless that's my wife says my outfit out. I was doing the suits in the patterns and some of this other stuff I was the first guy I actually back before saint-pierre that did show up to everything and suits but once I started doing a guy started cash they all started wearing suits and it got to the point that the company even implemented a new dress code policy in the second that'll happen. I never wore a suit again. Wear a suit to look nice. I wore a suit to stand out so what other guy started looking around go. Whoa this guy showed everything suit and they started copying right? It was like so many other thanks so many things in my time guys would copy now. I mean that's smart thing for them to do something working for. Somebody don't think you have to reinvent the wheel go out and do it find out what he did. steelers idea run with it no problem on that but once they did I gotta stay a step ahead. Now I gotTA show up in a sponsor T-SHIRT GONNA show up at a clear t-shirt with absolutely no sponsor when everybody else assist tap out across their chests. Whatever it is to be different is what I wanted to do? Most marketing experts will agree with me. Most people in marketing and most of them have degrees. They don't know which way is up. They sat in class. Their Dad paid some money every month so they didn't have to go get a real job and they got a marketing group. They're not actually capable of telling you go out and market something which means you stand out from everybody else else in the market. They don't understand that concept to the lowest of levels I well you know I think we'll send mailers to this area code and I think we'll give some t-shirts away over here. you know might be really smart if we put an ad on the radio yeah the same thing that everybody else is doing if you're good at marketing you know how to stand out. That's really what it's about up to you Shane. I'm just wondering what your thoughts are on. Possibly McGregor versus all the way to for the featherweight title gives Connor the title shot. He wants without taking away. Tony got shot that he's earned everybody happy. Let me know what you think. You know what I am not upset with you for asking it. I appreciate you asking and that's why answer it but I sure upset with that question question. It seems like everywhere turn people keep coming to the table and same connor and Max together and it solves all the problems I that's not great business if people keep acting like it's good but that's not that's just not great business second off. Conor McGregor left one hundred and forty five not because he cleaned it out. He left it because he couldn't make the weight class anymore now that we have to observe and respect that very much we don't want to force contract one hundred forty five pounds when he left the division and climb to the very top of one hundred certify pounds. Let's allow him to be more comfortable. He's fat at one hundred seventy pounds more recently than he's fought at one hundred forty five pounds. If you want to get a fresh coat of paint on Carter let's let's at least use our heads a little bit and start making some matches form that are there catchweight or one hundred seventy pounds. We're not going to get him against anybody. At one forty five particularly guy he's already beaten in in particular a guy that not a whole lot of people wanna see fight. Now I do understand before you push-back connors next fights big fight the end but if you wanted to be a really be finally let's say you will see that we already saw oh by the way the first time we thought it was on an undercard. I don't understand where that one comes from. Sometimes I'm so close to the trees. I don't understand that one comes from what is connor get out of it. He gets to grab a belt that he's already had. He gets to fight a guy that he's already beat owned by the way he he gets. The lake make less money than he made before it. I just find that a very weird booking when people try to match make that hey jail love love your podcast. Thanks for all that you do. I can't get it out of my mind that if oddest on your tops whittaker in this upcoming fight that there's a really dynamic by that can be made between Jess Pierre Oughta Sonya what are your thoughts on how their styles matchup and how that might go if it were to happen yeah well. There's there's an interesting one right doing so much talk about. GSP dropping down to one fifty five being the guy to challenge could be the first time and giving Georgia Champ Champ camp champ scenario. That's never been done you bring up an interesting point of Georgia's GonNa Return why the Hell has returned to await class where he was already king. Okay okay. I'll take the bait I like that and when you do look at Georgia's style of getting inside you got tall guy like Oughta. Sonya Oughta seems to fit the bill when you're talking about a guy that's going to be a target target is never going to get within range of signing if he does. He's going to catch elbow or knee. George seems to fit the bill. Those guys would probably agree to that fight right but as far as getting in the media and the fans behind it to push it so that is a fight that was ever made no. I don't think they were probably likely to do that unless you just started something. Hey she'll convert. We're here from Shadow Gospel Ace one thing I've always been curious about you and Anderson had one of the best rivalries in all of Combat Sports. What's IT GONNA die down on? It seemed like I was there. There was really no content that so what is your relationship like now you ever like ran into him at an event just kind of stopped and shot the shit laughed about old the whole time the whole thing. Would you ever consider having him as a guest on your show or anything like that so yeah relationship with Anderson I gotTa Detaille. I've I've gotten so many questions today. The first question I get that has nothing to do with Connor is asked by a guy named conner okay fairplay by you so Anderson then is I've seen Anderson one time since our fight in I was working he came in and sat with it was right after he fought Nick Diaz. Yes Anderson Sat with us at the desk. That's the first time he and I had ever been around each other before sense or even to this present time after we competed and I can tell when he came on the set he felt uncomfortable as though hey that's set shales job jail works there is going to treat me graciously or not and I didn't want him to feel that way..

"Now back to your welcome with jail son in law asking questions height shell dishes Ragu in his most most recent interview Tony Furthest Untold Aerial that unlike any other fighter before him he will be taking down and putting him on his back back you see this happening the UC Tony at division two national champion Actually Pulling this off against Aka trained Samba world champion Indian or would you bet against that a little bit of a tough one and I have to tell you is grappling wrestling base. That's not Sombo what he's out out there doing and there was a couple of guys were proud of the country of Russia. They're just very proud of it and Samba was one of their national sports. It's what the Russian military uses as as a way of tipping their hat and paying patriotic respect they say they're doing samba. SOMBO is very close to not even being a real sport in unfairness is not recognized by any governing body with any level of Reputa- ability it is not has never been and never will be inconsideration and for the Olympic Games. That's how you know what sport is truly real. If you do not have recognition by the International Olympic Committee you're likely in a fake export now. Somebo is very effective when you're wearing a GI and a jacket Ryan minutes. It's kind of like being in a sword fight you you can have a sword fight as long as did you ever sort and the other guy has a sort. How many guys do you run into carrying swords Sambas the same thing but he is from Dagestan any grew up wrestling he grew up in wrestling clean room with world and Olympic champion? We've got very good wrestling base. You must understand that because when you talk about a comparison to a division to wrestling champion and Tony Only Ferguson and you're trying to compare that to a Samba world where the hell Saba world champion we're the world championships held at who I could hold a Samba world championship happy ship right here in front of you guys and there's nobody to come out and say that it wasn't real. There is no recognized body. I I think that's important not for nothing but one of the histories of mixed martial arts was to get all the martial arts together and just find out what's real and what's not so the gym's that are practicing fake. Bs and I'm building kids confidence based on nothing to take their father's money every thirty days electronically gay the recurring business would stop doing it and kids could actually go and learn. I learn something that would work. Should they run into a situation. They need to protect themselves. SOMBO has got to fall into that category. It's garbage at the highest of levels and it's not what could be abuses. You can't do some but without Ajay there's no such thing as no Gi Samba unlike Jujitsu that is key and not just I just have to to clear the air on that but could be wrestling and the things he picked up and learned along the weapons case magnificent. Is that enough to take down. Don't division two national champion well. I'll tell you this Tony does get taken down a lot so I was to base it on previous fights that I've seen I do think that could be would take Tony down he he cannot do it it will he would not do it all night long. He would not do it with several MRS beans slipped in there as well. The great ones will throw five and six things that you just hope that one sticks fix can be a great one so that's okay. I feel that the bigger Tony also by the way doesn't mind being on bottom. Don't forget the night that he won his championship. He did that from the bottom. I'm Tony was born and raised in the Briar Patch. Don't think for a second he's scared about going to the bottom. That's what makes Tony such a problem. He'll fight everywhere. Yeah that's fine. If you told Tony hit you gotta fight could beat tonight. Oh by the way we've got one caveat. You'RE GONNA start it down can be is going to be right on top. That's how we're going to start you. Don't go to your according to a good start the fight down. Do you accept Tony. We've signed here. Tony will sign that walked to the ring right now so before you have any misconception that Tony Ferguson gives a damn about being on the bottom them make sure you understand that I wanNA reverse your question though and I want to tell you this. Do I think could be can take Tony down. That's what you yes I do do. I also think that Tony can take it could be down. Yes I do and for me as a viewer as a fan as some of those followed could be along this journey. That would be very interesting for me. I would very much like to see what happens when could be gets down. What's his style from down there? Is He gonNA look for submission. He secretly has submissions is he get a look for the referee to stand up and just try to stalemate a guy out is he likes to scramble stand up to his feet. I would be very interested. Does He. Strike right from the I don't know the answer to these things. I trust that nobody else does either. It's a position we haven't seen could be been GEL. It's been here. I have have a question for you so conor. McGregor went to classes up to fight a Navy S. How'd you would do if you went to classes up in Israel? I'm Sonya so I would love to see could beam go outside of his weight class and for reasons that have not fully been explained to me. He doesn't give an example beavis. Vivas always been dead set at one fifty five. You must be one fifty five. I'll fight anybody. They gotta come to one fifty five George saint-pierre. You're more than welcome. I respect you. GotTa come to my weight class. Things like this have been set so he's been pretty clear that he wants to fight at one fifty five which does surprise me because his champ champ thing is very real right now and Kabaeva such a big guy incubators even raised his hand. We've talked about not this one sixty five pound weight class so what the Hell's the difference if you go to one seventy particularly when you're could be even he's missed wait a number of times which makes him a welterweight on two separate occasions. He's he's not fought the specified weight class of which makes him a welterweight. I believe he wanted to go up because Islam is at one seventy and that's his teammate and he doesn't want to fight him. I made a video on that quickly. Got Corrected by you know Islam's at one fifty five so I don't know what his reservation about going up to one seventy s what he does not appear here to be interested in that I can tell you in the training room just from stores. He goes with all those guys and way bigger used to train with Ed Ruth on a daily basis. He used to train if spar rounds with Luke Rocco. He's got no problem with these bigger guys. There's something that he is locked in about competing. He wants to do it at one fifty five. I hope it reveals that does I would like to know the answer. As far as I'm going to take it on Israel out of Sonya I would tend to think that that's just a little too much size. I would tend to think I would be compelled to see that fight and I think that you can say as many nice things as you want about can be than you would still probably be short on the praise he deserves it I just feel for the first first time in the history of MMA winokur versus Sonya will fulfill providing us with the answer to the question of who is the best fighter in the sport so many times we will see a very good fighter put on a very good performance and then crown them the best we've seen this from the beginning of time we saw Mike Tyson knocking out tomato cans and declaring him the time after time I think that a very rare occasion you actually have the two best guys and they're not just fighting for King of middleweight and a division Asian and an undisputed title and Pride Nationalistic Pride Finding out who the absolute best in in the world is so if you would ask me how could be would do against the US an unfair question putting him in there without assigning hey temps O'Connor O'Connor versus I know Covey said no and his team is saying no how much power this connor Dina has to actually make this topic aw thanks big fan yeah the the truth is none of those guys have power including beep for some reason you win a championship. You think you're holding the walkaway. Now you will see champions. Always every champion wants to do this as a ploy for attention. I'M GONNA do one more fight and then I'm done. I could name them in there. Guys that I even respect tremendous. There's a piece of holding that belt where you want to be begged constantly to stick around. There's also a piece to that identity where you uh nobody ever wants to leave the sport ever there will never be a day where somebody wants to leave the sport. This is not a business like that as much like Hollywood or acting. You're never done with the business but one day you'll wake up and find out the businesses done with you and that's how this works so none of these guys really want to go but there's guys that they just don't WanNa fight. There's guys that they're scared. They they will say you have no ability no power congressman selling his power in this industry from the day. He got here with the great trick that he did is he made you guys. I believe he's still power could be has no power. He could put whoever he wants them to front row. He can make videos with guys around all what's that got to do with the UFC UFC compete thinks he has power connor thinks he has power now. If you're sitting in the middle you've got to deal with these knuckleheads and push comes to shove you. Let them know who has the power and it's not. It's is not going to be one at that point. I'm trying to get you asked me of the civically about the were powered. These guys are fantastic athletes in their fantastic fighters but they need to understand. They are nothing more than that. They are interchangeable with a million other guys out there. Do you want to do this or don't you. Oh and by the way I have you under contract so you're not going to go anywhere else and if I don't WanNa pay you anymore I don't have to lie I law and the Supreme Court Oh back Ma'am how much you want to talk about power. Let's get into it. Connor McGregor versus could be is a fun fight. I would also tell you this. It would be a different fight. I was at the very first one and connor regardless of outcome and regardless of way that story has been rewritten much like his fight with Floyd Mayweather did a very good job in that fight. He did a very good job. He stopped could be burly on with. They don't have wrestling in Ireland. Ireland doesn't rep is it represented the Olympic Games and wrestling Dagestan dominates the Olympic Games in specifically wrestling could be about wrestled him. I get it I saw competed a fantastic job to act as though Connor did not and to act as though could be does not have a unique feel that somebody like connor who stood of the sport the guava and feel one time and regardless of outcome come back and do better the second is false connor could do better the second time now. What does that mean? Does that mean he gets into the fifth round Zamin he makes it to a decision before you go to the judges cartoon dizzy went to rouses win three. There's all sorts of questions where he could do better but you don't get a different outcome but that's one of the reasons that you want to see the match again no to your question question. Neither one of those guys has power those three little letters were still the fastest growing business and sport in the world long before Khabib Abe was showing up long after could be will be here long before connor long after hotter until I'm a big fan as you can tell my question about conor McGregor I think he will return to the cage sometime in the next six to eight months hopefully but my question is do you think he will have that same drive in same same passion that he had in his twenty thirteen to twenty sixteen run when he became a double champion a lot of these guys that are in the same way classes and potential opponents. They've gone a lot better. Has He got better and will he have that same drive alright so connor talk which I find interesting connors doing when something to keep his name out there and I think he must be doing a very good job..

"I don't have to start myself after this. I think is going to be a huge benefit fighting somebody like RDA, it don't matter. I'm showing up on my eight game and not. Don't have to fight the scale before. So in up against him is definitely going to be something. Big for this fight for me is just about getting back to my true, natural fighting style in. It's it's about going out there and showing a best my best performance in kind of putting my last one on one sixty five does that ever happen. I know what Dana says publicly, but does he give you guys any maybe even glimmer of hope behind the scenes, he don't, but I don't give a damn, you know, I'm gonna do. He don't really get to make the rules that you know. I kinda anybody who kind of know me kind of no follow them all rose. A lot of people trying to tell me what to do here and there, and I just kind of go in winning. You're not the other. So even win he's talking about one sixty five my my ideas, still a show up on five week. I'm gonna be prepared to make one sixty five. I'm ex RDA if he's prepared to make it I know he's a big guy. But you know, we might come to a little back room kinda handshake deal on it. If we can make that happen and show that that's where our best come out of where we compete the best at one hundred sixty five pounds if we can make that happen in the back room. I don't see why we can't you know, why we gotta wait on them. I think it's stupid that they even are. I think everybody kind of sees the same thing. It doesn't make sense that they're that. They're kind of wishy washy on it. It makes most sense to add one sixty five pound division. The only reason why they don't is. Because it creates more work for them. It creates more work for eight match. Acres and you put in the work over our health and safety and the longevity at a sport in, you know, to me as it doesn't make sense. And if it don't make sense than in ancient, I think that's very fair. I don't think that could be better said. All right, Kevin. You've got anything else. You wanna get off your chest. I ain't got nothing Mishaan away from the media, and I've been having Manos right to the grinder. I'm getting back to the to me. You know, the old me the Yuna Heidi is coming up and he's wrestling days where nobody give a damn about. You don't give them about who you are what you doing or in. That's what I kind of want to get back to it. And I'm going out there may eighteen he on no end. I'm putting my nose grinder. And I'm I'm gonna get this work done. I can't we'll be watching. I will be cheering. I do not hide my bias nece on team. Kevin Lee, ma'am, best of luck. And I look forward to covering it. When you're done momma to always. All right. Kevin lee.

And you know rolling over there rolling around with Dylan in August. And think that he can roll all of a sudden. But when you do that is like, okay, you you you you kind of killing yourself there. You know, what I mean, if you just stick to what you supposed to do, you know have a little bit more humility, and and go out there, and and fight toe fight then you would have won. But you know in and I'm and I'm saying that in the next I don't find mine. So you know, I'm kind of talking shit. But. That you didn't fight. You fight you fight. But have you ever wanna fight not fighting your fight? I'm not saying that you felt like you got lucky. Yeah. I mean still worked out in in his still NFL work. Pretty good too. I'm trying to think like a great example of ahead. You know, when when I fought you frame Escott, Darryl that was kind of one of those times it first time. I kind of switched in cellphone fight in our really tried to fight on the outside. It's still ended up winning. If I am winning around where I thought, you know, where I was really trying something new. I mean in ain't nothing wrong with trying at the new in a fight. You know, hey, if you want to go out there, and you really feel like you could take a beat down. Then then, you know, do what you do the bowel me. But you know, is like that just wasn't what I was expecting. You know what I'm saying? I know we got maybe a break coming up or so, so maybe this'll be more of a tease, you tell me Georgia wall around the the breakdown talk. I can't remember what you had as far as a Tony could be because I think that a lot especially hard cores people in the now, we all know the history.

And that's what I love about you because that's why I'm a huge fan because this means more to you than anything. You know what I mean? But once that's done whether that processes couple days or couple of weeks, I know that you know, how to live life. You know what I mean? And so I'm glad that you know, you're able to have a nice holiday season in two thousand eighteen just a new year. And you got goals, you know, and and maybe this'll be one of them years. You. Can hit three fights or or or two? I don't know. And just get you out there doing your thing. And and regrouping, well, I, you know, I been through this process before too. So it kinda I'm not going to say in a -sarily gets easier. But you just learn how to what matters don't matter. And in the long run I'm really in his game for a long long time in my head. So that's what I kinda keep I try to always just look for regardless. You know, you can look back and be upset about it. And just kinda see what you do right in what you did wrong. But I do that win lose or draw. Really? So for me. It's just the process is the same process is a lot more. You know, we kinda wakes you up in the middle of a little bit more at the end of the day is is kind of like the same thing. So that's kinda beauty about fighting is there's gonna be another fight the games is gonna keep going on. And and that's what I'm doing. I'm just gonna keep getting better at it in you know, that that's really ultimately. That's that's my only goal. I've never even when I started. This say I'm undefeated, or I'm going to be you know, nobody can beat me in an audit. I just always just trying to get my honest opinion about how I'm going to do versus a certain guy or how Phil do. And you know, I try and stay true to that. Yes, it ask a sensitive question. Yeah. We've always seen kind of the coach aside and how they deal with their fighter. Have you ever noticed? What your coaches go through like how they deal with ever seen the expression on on their luck or their process of you ever caught onto it. Yeah. You can definitely feel their energy for sure. And especially as you as you go through, you know, fighting so personally, so like is more personal. I think than than people realize so y'all kind of feel the same things almost in if your energy, I'm kind of feeding off of that. So yeah, I can kinda see it and everybody has their ways of whether a coach of fighter or, you know, your your significant other whatever it is. They've got their own ways of dealing with an and going through their ups and downs..

"He's gonna win. Okay. He's gonna win on Saturday night. How? You don't want. Let me tell you something about this bond burner refined its bubbles, Dan hookah. Let me tell you about it. I'm gonna say he's going to win by second round. Spinning back kick to the head or to KOA TKO in the second round. This apologize for the song. No. That was a great song. No apologies, motherfuckers. I went back and forth on this one a lot Dan hookers on a great run, obviously. But I agree. I don't think our Bose is gonna lose three fights in a row this probably going to be contested standing, which is obviously contented standing on. What you say contest is. I don't know. How what did you say that probably gonna stand up? Okay. Well, it's probably be the fight. It's gonna take place standing you believe this contest will take place on there. Yeah. And so I I get Barboza the edge there. So I take but I'm gonna take Barboza by decisions because they think hookers tough tufted main event time LA Quinta. Kevin Lee got Al tell you afterwards off air what good. Obviously, I've Kevin leave, of course. And I say Kevin Lee by karate kicks in the first sure now, I'm gonna take Al third round knockout. I feel I feel weird for you guys with this because I feel like you almost feel obligated what we do to take out because you're in the corner. However, I wouldn't take I would I wouldn't pay it'd be hard to pick against Al. But I would probably refrain from picking if I was uncomfortable picking L, I would just go, you know, what? But I do think I don't think Allah's gonna lose. Again, menial will lose two fights in a row, but I'm not saying throw out I'm saying forthright. I don't think it will go to a decision because it's a five round fight. I'm gonna say a fourth round to. All right. We'll get your official pick afterwards. Yep. Excited about that though. I really am excited. And I think Kevin Kevin smart like in a sense where he's like, man. I could tell you guys don't really believe it. How do you think he's gonna do it? And. You know, I think trying to convince him. No, no, we believe in Allthough. Why do I think he's gonna see announce face at weigh ins he's in the face in the corner? He's in we have the utmost confidence in the raging one. This dude, let me tell you. He might slay at at someone houses. But is that if anybody belongs in that cage it there's some guys come to? All right. That's that's what he's made. That's what he's really need to do. You know what I mean? The guys I guys like twenty Ferguson guys like could be and I think guys like raging alla Quinta. That's what the fuck. I mean. Let me tell you. I just. Yeah. Yes. Is Alfred of a bar fight? If guy came up to an aboard he'd be nervous. Al how about this L L needs to fight? He he needs it like, I know Joe Rogan kind of jokes around or he doesn't says no houses psychopath. I'm not saying that I'm saying I'm saying he's made for that. I'm saying he's made for it. He's fucking made for it. He fights tooth and nail. What is record? I don't know. Yeah. Let me let me pull it up. But he's a dangerous dangerous as they come issues and. He is thirteen four and one who's the draw will Martinez back in the day. Yeah. Here's the thing about Al very few people would take the fight against can be on days. And they offered it's other people offer the Pez he said, no. Fell to try to.

"I mean, you know, I think in the long run we really just showing the evolution of sport going over to ESPN Huge. huge for the UC. I'm kinda, you know, I'm looking forward to that to you know, I think it's it's it's happened for reason and funks probably, you know, ESPN just as is a bigger, you know, I it's just a another part of growing in the sport. You know, you have to fill out. Oh them with the new, you know, as far as I acquainted was it more about just facing somebody who had beaten you. And and getting that L off your resume or what what brought it to the table that you needed to take that fight nothing against out. But he was coming off a loss. I asked that for that reason. And the fact that you know, I would say that most rankings, you know, you you've overcome that loss in place higher in the rankings. Keep a real it was to be beaten Conard away that he did. And then when you go back and you look at how good outdid again. And and you know, he really showed could be a a lot of whole than it game. That kind of intrigued me more than anything. Yeah. I can get the loss back in in kind of get a little bit at every Dempsey like that that part's fun really like either. So that there's a little fun for me. But really, it's a it's a cleaner paths at tidal in. I'm used to to send that message. You know, could be already knows his team knows. But the rest of the world who saw him against could be on this one that I'm gonna different level. Okay. Okay. I'm seeing what you're saying. You know, a lot of people say that Emma, math, don't work. And I'm saying what I say is you can use that all the time. But ever math does work. And so what you're trying to say is you wanna show the champ? This is what I do to the same people that you faced I and you wanna impress them that way. Yeah. I mean there there there's an you gotta leave it up to the people at the end of the day, the people awesome. It Lee are going to what the fight is. So once they see and they leave it up to them to make comparisons. Then, you know, then I think it my work was speak for so because really I mean could be already knows, you know, he he's seen me around for years and kind of knows where I'm at. This is going to be for the rest of everybody else and say you do get a little bit at every Dempsey which I'm looking forward to. And it was a I think it was one of the best match ups out there funny because I was gonna I was to legal show up for the whole time. And it's going let me put on a damn good fight. Kevin. Do you think if we actually I know I get silly at times? But that that there's some validity to what I'm about to ask you, do you think if we put Habib under one of those lie detectors, and we asked them the question. Hey, who do you think is the most worthy opponent out there for you? You think he would be forced to say, Kevin Lee? Oh, yeah. Absolutely. I mean, and that's not even me without you know, I can get a little bit a of over, you know, over cocky or confident whatever you wanna call it. But in hard party really knows, you know, his people trying with me all the time, you know, easy sent out a couple of Russians over here to of Spar me test me out, and I make sure each time. I touched one of them guys. I I like send back with a message for so he he knows. But at the end of the day like I said, it's it this is a sport is a business to. Yeah. I'm let the people kinda know in let them really decide. I'm not really taking one man..

UFC featherweight GOAT debate intensifies following Max Holloway's dominant UFC 231 win

"It was a bit of a debate online. But who's the goat at featherweight and some people think it's still Josie. Although some people think it's max Holloway. I'll save that debate for another time. I don't really want to get into it. Because no one's going to win every side just going to pick who they think is the right answer. But here's one thing. I can say there is a real possibility that max Holloway can become the featherweight GSP only the more modern risk taking version. Here's what I mean. What may GS PG? Well, first of all again, these are things that could happen. I don't know if it's going to happen. But one probability, you should probably consider is that like if you think about what may GS piece of special, right? It's probably a combination of things is an incredible skill. He was a national icon. He defended his title a number of times all those things would have put together this larger package, but when he fought what did he do especially in that later stage of his career? He used basically his skills to define the terms of the fight over and over in a very controlling stifling way. Didn't take a lot of damage at the end there the Hendrix fight or a couple of others notwithstanding. And that was you could make an argument that some of that was a little risk averse, but the point being smart you kept his title, and he did legendary things, but the key. There is a he was able to impose a very dominant. Encompassing fight defining way of managing his opponent. He took a fight that is normally a very chaotic thing. And then controlled for it. We had Gracie on last week. And I asked him what defines the jujitsu of Brian Otake. Everyone's got their own style. Right. Like like gosh. I mean, Andre Calvo's Jiu jitsu is not the same. As Keenan Cornelius is not the same as the Mendez brothers is not the same as I mean, you pick it right? Goes on and on everyone's got their own little style. But his was that in the middle of chaos. He can find a neck, you can find an arm. He can he can bring something. To bear down upon it. Which is true. If I was really smart observation, and by the way, Brennan will take it. We'll be back. He will make he will make a reappearance in remind you of why he was so highly valued as a potential threat to max Holloway's crown down the line after heels and everything, but here's the point that ability to control the chaos, max Holloway does the same thing. He takes everything away by making the fight on his terms through distance through use of the jab all the things I mentioned in the hour if he can cut the weight enough and stay for the wait long enough people keep saying oh shit. If I next Nate or Tony or Habib or Connor it is not that. I don't wanna see those contests. But I'm telling you, we are missing something if we deny him the opportunity at being the sentinel at the guard for one Forty-five because he can be the exact same kind of thing. Doesn't matter. What skill you bring? Are you a high? Octane jujitsu specialist. Who's got a ridiculous chin who can has developing striking. He has an answer for that. Are you the potentially the guy who was the guy the best ever not division? He's got an answer for that. Or are you a wrestle boxer? He's got an answer for that. Are you whatever he's got an answer for all those things if you look at his rise with you want to compare it to Aldo's or not look at the different kinds of fighters. He has faced has faced all the different kinds. He could face potentially at one forty five. No, which is why some kind of a rain there is necessary. But he has fought a lot of different types already guys who are wrestling threat guys who are power threat guys who are volume threat guys who are striking threat guys who have veteran experienced guys who have who are a little bit undeterred by experience and just sort of go for broke..

"And he can circle this way. So he can literally go like that. Right. Not a lot of guys can do that. It's not about which way to see stay. It's about which way. Does he stand and circle at the same time that'll be a number four here in just a minute. But the point being is here he starts out doing that. And then that quickly goes away when he realizes he can just get Brian Ortega back up one of the reasons why he wanted to jam was number one to do that. And number two is to jam the space, which you're going to see is whether he standing in the orthodox or the southpaw stance. He wants to get inside the punching range by moving into Brian Ortega constantly that pushes Brian were take a back, and it gets them with the punches or whipping around the back of his head. He doesn't have to worry about just sort of being at the end of them. He's inside of them. That's number one. Number two, get the defensive shell up, and you're going to see Brian Ortega has an interesting defensive show. Whether he's orthodox or southpaw the rear hand is kind of tucked here. And then he's got this elbow out here. In fact, Kevin Lee uses the same show in the first quantified actually went back, and I watched it's like this, and partly you understand it. He likes to throw it into the elbows. That's a little bit more slashing over the top. But it's a it's an interesting thing what he wants is four either Ortega to do that or to extend he wants Ortega to extend once Ortega extends he can either come over the top. He can come inside or he can use the other hand to then attack at an angle. So getting that open rather than here. Let's say at a distance opening or open is what he's looking for at all times. Number three lead with the half beat or the jab otherwise counter, how does max Holloway land? One. Whole just jab is way inside again, orthodox or lefty doesn't matter kind did opposite here orthodox or no excuse me left. The left-hander then orthodox that's one way to get inside another way he likes to get our Lee. His offense is on the half beat. So remember if I'm standing this way one two three four that's the beat. But rather than trying to fire on the one two three four you fire in between the one in the two. So the beat is like this. You fire inbetween before you can hit that final snappy. That's when you want to get it and the timing on that just takes skill and work on the half beats a whole jab is way open pushing back jamming inside getting taking to move back, and he'll do it with a happy someone with a half beat. He won't jab. He'll do it from the from the power handhold just pop, but it's the timing on it it catches Ortega dead space or again with the jab otherwise he's countering Conor McGregor. Does what he pushes into guys gift them to react slips it and it hits a shot. Remember, the Ivan is a buck injure but booking or whatever. It is the fight. He won. In cage words, I got him launched all the way to the you have see the guy throws. What was it? A right hook Conor leans and then cracks in with the left over the top. Max does a lot of same stuff not the same shots..
