"What up everybody. Welcome to another episode of the corner podcast Cal dansby here. By myself, old men Andreas is calling in. I just, I'm just playing. I just had to teach you guys, he's calling in from the crib. We are on baby watch officially, but the man did not leave me hanging. So he decided to have to set up at the crib. Today we're talking MMA and boxing. We have a guest from the UFC joining us who fights this weekend as well. So there's a jam packed show. They didn't have a show on Sunday, so we got to do everything today. Dre, thank you for calling in. Look at this, man. You're committed. I like this. Yeah, yeah. I'm glad that I could call in. Baby watches in full effect, yeah, you know, I've got to take care of the family, but how could I not talk about MMA and boxing after everything that we just witnessed? A great UFC London card. We got people getting beat up in the streets for living the gimmick. We got to talk about it. Yeah, man. Talking about that, we didn't have a show on Sunday. Mostly because of me, I was in New York for the heger berlanga fight, which we'll talk about. I had like family stuff on my end as well. Grandfather passed away on Saturday. So I'll fly back on Sunday. Could have made it. I had my flight ready to come here, producer cold baby. What it kept the Mike warm, I would have jumped right in the chair. We would have been good, but just everything going on. I was like, you know what? I can take one podcast off. So I was like, we can talk about everything today, not missing too much. This is still going to be kind of a shorter episode, 'cause I do have my grandfather's viewing year to attend up an hour and a half. And we're just streaming. So cool. I get to do all of that. Thank you to technology. Right after this show. So I was like, you know what? Cool. We got an hour and a half. Dope interview. Let's get into it. And I wanted to start in UFC, Dre. I had to start in the UFC. It makes me feel so good. And I need uplifting things this week. It makes me feel so good. To see someone catch the fade in public. Because you don't see that enough anymore. You don't get punched in the face anymore. For stuff that they say, and they think it's cute, they think it's cool. They think it stays there. It's just for a build up where people have Twitter fingers, anything like that. I miss the good old days when people just got punched in the face for saying things. And you never know when it's gonna happen. So Marcel walked up to Kobe Covington at a bar, I think it's called poppy steak. Shout out to my Cubans. In Miami, walked up, it was on site. Literally on site, this man is a man of his word. I like everything about this. I could say that. I feel like I'm not going to get in trouble for that. Dre, what was your thoughts when this happened? Go first things first allegedly, right? Has there been charges? I think the charge is still paying charge. He's been, no, there's a police report, no one has been charged.

You know, I'm welcome to Miami Beach police department any time now and those guys, they showed me the shoe anytime. And they just gave me their time anytime I want it now. I came a couple days ago on the drop of the dime and they're like, yeah, come Kobe and got to shoot M 5s and assault rifles and all these crazy like you pissed on with like crazy silencers and nice scopes and, you know, it's just been a really cool experience just to, you know, be able to hang with them. Wow. Now you left American Top Team. And you kind of formed your own gym. Is that a couple things? Who are you bringing in? That cost me a lot more money because now you got to pay people to train with. You know, no, it's probably going to save me a good amount of money to be honest, you know? At American Top Team, you know, you have your gym fees that you have to pay and you have to and I always paid my individualized coaches. So, you know, now it's just, it's just individualized coaches. I'm not paying the GMP because I'm my own gym. I'm Kobe Covington incorporated now.

Now, are you worried that guys are going to go not going to go a 100% with you? Because they're not going to want to hurt you because you're implying them. No, I'm not worried at all. I think that we train smart at Colby Covington incorporated, but you know, I always believe in giving your all. So, you know, I want them to go hard and, you know, and being the best fighter in the world, you should be able to train with any style and be able to maneuver through, you know, all the all the crazy training and all the reckless people that train like that and be able to, you know, just pretty much be able to stop it and not get hurt. So I'm not really too worried about that. Now listen, I was telling Joe. I'm like, listen, personally, I think American Top Team got you to the point where you got the title shot..

You guys don't know about me. I'm actually a feminist. Don, I think you have a son out there somewhere. He goes, I'll make fun of Christians and they say, show him one day, Jews will come in your life and save you. Come to church and make fun of Muslims and it's straight death threats. Laugh my ass off. Y'all can't we just get along? He goes, Khabib, let's go. I'm open to being friends with violent violent dictators. Criminals, like Khabib, Dennis Robin, when you're done sucking off Kim Jong-un, let them know I'm open to being his buddy. Human rights violations.

"Saw. I question my friend. What is the fast. Ufc fight you remember. What should i. The first time i saw the. Ufc was way back in nineteen ninety six. I worked in a video cassette rental store. This is how people used to buy. I used to rent movies. And we had a whole section for ufc fights and this is pretty fascinating and and promised to be very violent. I watched it. It was one round for twenty five minutes. They're kind of locked up for like the whole time. And i thought well this isn't very violent So side i did become a really die hard fan when i really fell in love with it was when there was all the hype surrounding ronda. Rousey yeah met. Ronda rousey should. She had Her training facility in glendale california and it was attached to the little office where you would go to apply for your Tsa pre check. Which would allow you to get through the airport without taking off your shoes. I was just trying to get my pre check clearance and next thing you know. I'm talking to ronda rousey. And and and i really got it got into it so i wanted to watch all all of her stuff. I and then that wow you know. This is actually really really exciting. So it's it's been five or six years that i've been pretty die hard and i've become such a maniac for it like i watch. I watch every fight. What would you most called. I was watching. I'm your tweet. Came up and then they gave you a saw. I don't know if you if you had two saw but they will us tvos watching. I thought very gus for you but thank you saw mid fight. I appreciate that. Yeah brendan fitzgerald said. Stephen likes what he sees and i did. I don't think there's anything i've been in a shot mid fight. You know the tweet coming up on the screen is good but getting the i. That's that's the next level right question. He's favorite ufc fight overtime man. That's such a tough one. My girl and i are both rabid fans we sit down we watch you know for six hours from the fight. Pass prelims on and there's only one fighter who when this fighter fights we can almost not stand the anxiety because if anything bad happens rose nominee unions. It's going to destroy dog. Rose thug rose. We love her so much that we almost like can't stand the anxiety of watching her fight because we so don't want anything bad to happen to her. When thug rose. I knocked out. You wanna nj check like we were jumping up and down on the sofa like tom. Cruise doing an oprah interview was it was it. I mean she likes her so much was it. Wasn't he love about you. Know i would have to say that it is her humility. You know. I of the belief that it's possible to be a star in the ufc and have humility and respect and integrity in all of this Trash talk and being the villain and being disrespectful of your opponents like it a little bit rubs me the wrong way you know i. I don't care for it as much as fighter with with real class like destined pouria. And i'm speaking with dustin pori a after the last mcgregor fight and i told him i said you know what man not only happy for you. But i'm happy with the idea that we could usher in a new era. Where the stars of the us the you have seen can be like really classy. Have humility be good people. And what dustin said was he said man. That's what i want for the whole world. You know what. I want people in the all the people in the world to be like what a great guy. I understand that the fight game is show business. It's entertainment and so you've gotta get attention you've got to create a story line. You know there is value in being disliked. I mean take kobe. Covington for example. I love watching that guy fight. I feel so invested in disliking colby. Covington that i could almost say he's my favorite fighter. You know so. I understand the you know the dynamics of fight promotion but i also just wish that That there is a real reward for being a classy guy with humility. You know like rob rob whitaker. He was saying. Hey man. I know that. The title shot. I should be talking trash and this and that was. That's just not me and that kind of hurt me in my heart. I want like. I want that for the good guys question. What is your favorite. Yes he fight that you have attended or watched you know. I gotta i gotta say it's a toss up between this last one between dustin and connor because i mean i was sitting right next to donald trump and justin bieber. You know the celebrity firepower at you have to sixty four was really off the charts. Man always mcgregor fight as far as actual fights go being in the very front row watching whitaker romero to in chicago. This happened and June of twenty eighteen and god. It was incredible fight. That hall event was was unbelievable. And si- right up close in person from the front row a love. That was incredibly. You call go room. I mean i mean i. I live in england so we have to stay up to three in the morning to watch the fights. You kinda you kinda like forcing your.

"Title nicole. Main event just engage versus michael chandler sean strickland versus luke rock hold frankie edgar versus marlin barra. Gdr's back against deniau. Donna an even the return of rage. Now quinta taking on bobby green. These are all official for the promotions return. Msg brian kelleher would begin with you when you saw this card on your television screen or on anime fighting dot com. How did you react to it. I thought it was amazing. You know. I thought they really loaded the deck so far and i hope everything goes smooth it and keeps up But yeah. I was really excited for a lot of these matchups on kobe's obviously given use modest hardest fight so far. I think that that is a highly anticipated rematch. Right there and they'll build the hell out of it too. And i think the you know rose probably should afford a sparce but i'm interested to see how john comes back off of that. Knockout how she faces it mentally. You know and see if this is a different fight or not. And luke rocco been out for quite some time. I'm excited this. Is you know he's fighting. A guy that right now is just a lion in there. Just careless reckless and fun to watch. So that's gonna be awesome. What do you think. Jeff was this. A yea or boo. Or you've see to sixty eight. So many thoughts might have so many of them are positive but they were all overshadow of the very first thing i thought i look at it was damn as a really good fight card and the second thing was damn trevor women's going be coach of the year And the third thing. I thought was damn. Do you see. Did call us barbeque reagan. Dirty man frigging dirty. Like i knew we all saw common. So it's hard to be like mad about the punch you know is being thrown and you just watch a hit you but still like doing the immediate rematch. There's almost nothing. I hate more in this than immediate rematch is even for a long time champions. Like i didn't think anderson should got an immediate rematch against chris. Why because you beat the champ. You should get to have that count. You have to do it twice to stick. Also we've seen that immediate rematch. Don't usually work out. The person lost so i hate. It was subaru unhappy that they were going to do it from a principal standpoint and also just like look at widely zhang's record like just go check it out real quick. I know that she is a champion. Now you to say that. She wasn't observing champion. She absolutely was beat. The hell jessica drudge. Got it other than that. She really only has like a couple of great wins. It's not like she's cleaned out the division amy respect. She got t-shirt torres. Good win just drudge. Split decision with yawny and jj dozer her good wins. And then the loss to rose berry respectable resume. But it's not like well. We just have sheasby everybody. Who else can we put in her her against. You have plenty of options and call. Esparza did everything right. She is doing everything that you want a person do. She has five win since her last loss all of them over good ranked opposition all of them like she yonge non. Who was i think. Number three at the time or whatever and clearly if you on john on at one that fight she gets the title fight because make no mistake. This is just the. Ufc wants chinese champion. That's all it is win. Call it what it is. They would like to at least have the opportunity to chinese champion because of what that means for their growing business in that market one of the richest most interesting markets for any business. If you're not a beaten sponsor she got into the title fight because she lost a sport is doesn't get the title fight now. Why league gets right back. And that's not even mentioning the fact that you're running a huge risk with job like i know that she is super good and all these wins. Her last two fights are fight of the year fight of the decade fight of the ever. would you audio. jj which she took a ton of damaging and then getting cold by rosena unison. Ninety seconds if she gets got again. That's a really bad run for any combat sports athlete. And you should maybe try not to create situations where this very marketable commodity might just be blown up like i horrible matchmaking. In every sense of the word. And i ate it and that took up almost all focus after that the rest of really cool knocking to talk about the main event because kobe covington's a coward. He will not come home between the links and and challenge me. I've challenged in many times. So i hope you get and then maybe you'll have have the stones to step into my arena You michael chandler is just engages best fighter in the world. As far as i'm concerned. I love that man like like my own child So i watch sean. Strickland mu glacken. That's going to be something Probably will hate most of the talk about between them beforehand. But sure frankie edgar. Who doesn't love. Frankie edgar fight cheeto vera wonderful person fighter and rage. Now bob green. That's like a really good fight. Did no one's gonna care about because the rest of the card so stacks. So it's awesome. And i can't wait brian. Would you rate this on a scale of one to ten right now like i said earlier. I think it's like a nine right now. You need to your couple a little bit more flavor through what kind of throw a little boom in their little. All the ed man. I think i got plenty of time. you know. i think it works out. Perfect time wise. I think they'll throw me in there. You know just just put me on the tv prelims. That'll be nice. There you go blasting with boom. Ooh yeah but we already know and we're already kind of know. I've only called him out about five times on. But i've had i've had no luck man. He's not mentioning me. He's you know he's pretty pretty ditsy. He does wanna fight. Unranked guys and i fit the bill as do this. We'll do. I need to start calling them out because i i. I've already given call enough smoke. And he's afraid. I'm happy to throw smoke for other people at any point in time. I have no problem badmouthing fighters through smoke and o'malley. He's gonna he's gonna take the smoke. Yes for sure so fro agenda. I want to hear it. Oh man i don't know because this my verge. I'm not a particular fan of show at. Lisa's my words on personal because i respect his belief that he should not fight anybody good. That's a great idea. Even beat anybody could grow. Have you get all the same money and people are going to treat you like a star cool. I don't get your whole thing. I'm not sure why popular. But i'm not gonna hate on a man making money bef- i'm a boy because you'll get got actually don't fight boom. That's actually why you will lose and do very unfortunate which they get that promo. Brian was beautiful. I think i think you know what my last performance doesn't help me because i wrestled the shit out of that guy and that's probably the last thing valley wants to deal with so that might have hurt me a little bit there but you never know you never know he said i get paid the same the fight whoever so i think i think i'm perfect for the fifth. We we need to just next time. You go out there because it's not going to be against him because he won't do it. Just suck beat all just be terrible and then maybe he'll be like oh i want to do next. I've i've tried that a couple times against some top fifteen guys man. It's not working out but not top. Fifteen guys is a real candidates out there. We'll awful against some garbage like that's my guy so sold let's do a kelleher versus o'malley the regional seen somewhere because they don't be in fact. Yeah are you researching the good name of chris. Patino right now or are you impressed. The hell exam right. He did call the nail. Do fire also prompted him. He's gonna fight again before malley does do is insanely tough. So there you go you have to sixty eight. We will see what will happen. Come november at msg. Hopefully it all goes according to plan but the point for four goes to the.

See what dan white has to say about it after the coveted fight obviously because first of all using knees to fight coveted i notre or be coveted for its in order to have his next fight made but with that I think that who's been will only be covington. Like i said but will also beat vincent as well but this guy's pretty good at watching that fiber as he definitely turned the tables around really quick. It seemed like as had us emission. Locked in perfectly on a vincent but then Hughes able vincent was able to turn the tables in just have his own submission against jay's it seemed my cheese a how to change the break out of it but Seem the submission seemed to locked in and and up.

So it's possible. It's the issue definitely of the partial. They might also decide while we still only have partial capacity. And that's where we run into the problem with dana white. Who has said. I'm not doing partial capacity to venues. It sold out all the way. So if there's even the slightest chance that there's an extra bit of safety protocol from madison square garden. Or from you know the the From new york city. You're not going to see you see to sixty eight man's gardening so it's just not gonna happen to you so I like suggestion. They're definitely florida. The paradise that dana white has has declared florida to be. It's probably where where where they would habitat for the covington factor sent news on some. I guess enemy territory comes in place in florida right like i mean he's popular still there right. Yeah who's who's miniature. Turn the florida too. And he just knocked hard mazda florida. So i don't think problem with their Florida's numbers are looking horrendous. Though real bad really bad. So i don't know i don't know florida's possible you think. Kobe covington is gonna wanna fight in an arena if people are being forced to be vaccinated is on tells me he's not that was my thought to even if the ufc could make msg work. It would be a kind of a dana moved to just pull out of new york city as protest. You know i could see that's happening. I mean we've already seen a handful of fighters including bantamweight champions tweet about this. Which was alarming. I think a lot of he and he was like i. Don't get people that arguing twitter on general using arguing with a lot of people like ten fifteen dollars. Stop it you. Republicans to the best. It happens to her. I put my. I can't do it. I can't do it anyway. miami vegas or other arizona's possibility doesn't seem like we care about any of this happening over here taxes. Maybe i know he wants to go to texas a bunch. I would assume vegas or texas though vegas. You have to wear masks now from what i hear or yeah you have to at least wear the mask. I don't know how they're handling vaccines and stuff. When i heard because i haven't been back to vegas in a bit is. The media has to wear masks again like even if you are vaccinated you have to wear masks. Even backstays frozen. Can you hear me. Yeah okay video district. Yeah mcdonalds mcdonalds. I can't. I couldn't sell if you're deep in thought. Yeah not other videos pilot choppier. Hopefully values come through anyway. We got a few quite a few comments from the previous question. Let's go if they come up champion's championship clause three fights for aj source. My with mickey. So they go questions. Asks answers received. What does that. what does that mean. What does that mean championship clause like so you might extend your fight three year contracts. So question asks view. Okay okay so it's like starting from when he wanted you're saying that he didn't. He now owes them three fights. Okay hey jimmy. Mckee versus concord mcgregor. Mike donahue is but if you're thinking of conor mcgregor wrong way class unless agent wants to one fifty five which i know he definitely does. Some people are saying there's a lot of people though names out for aj mckee but they're all pretty much what he said like aj versus max age versus this anyway. Moving on tavist mckean give mcgregor this point at this point conchords. A goner concord. Greg gregor does not santa chancing. Just your opinions. What are some of the worst papers. Ds's ever put on this week question this week. Features an interim heavyweight title fight. No one asks for. When we could be receiving john jones versus francis g francis. His first name begins with an an and gone and francis also. Okay that's fair. Also francis and the brain heavyweight champion the world he would get top billing not john john's anyway worse paper views. How's that you can go for it. Yeah this on is a one forty. Nine was at the calgary. One that i was i was there was real bad is a fan. I believe once. I'm also really bad. One forty nine was just decimated by injuries. And like every i think only one fight had its original one main main card fight had its original was the original fight and now a congo versus. I can't even remember in even after chicago is like i was hurt. I should've pulled out because it was. It was a bad fight he just. It was a bad heavyweight fight. I should've pulled out. But he didn't want to because everyone was. How does that stretch of time. Where like everyone got hurt. Your favorite was supposed to fight dominant crews at uc one. Forty eight in like the big rivalry and use one. Forty eight was anderson's delivers jail son. In two which was gonna be the biggest pay per view ever at the time. And they were..
"kobe covington" Discussed on Five Rounds with Brett Okamoto
"That that the that the wrestling plays a huge role or a bigger role in this fight or we get the same type of Exciting stand up matchup. We got in code in kobe. Covington kamar rougemont one. So i think the issue is for covington. He couldn't take oberlin down in the way that he thought he would but he also couldn't use his cardio as a weapon right one thing. That covington does really really well. We've seen this on a number of different occasions is he uses cardio as a weapon because he can go harder than most people by the time that he starts to fatigue guys are completely wiped out. They can't even stand so he just kinda wears them down. He's like an avalanche going downhill but use mine was able to stand up to that. Not only was he able to stand up to that and with standard he was actually able to take it a step further and that is what i think happened in kobe. That's why kobe didn't wrestle. As much as the fight went longer because he thought it wasn't going anywhere kamara. Today is a better fighter. Then he was back when they fought in two thousand eighteen. Two thousand nineteen i. I'm not sure if it was eighteen. Nineteen but we're whatever they thought he's better today and it showed in his performances over gilbert burns over horry mas with all twice right. It's showing that use. Mine is still improving. I think a lot of that is accredited has worked with trevor wittman. It's going to be fantastic fight. It's going to headline would could be madison square garden in new york city which is always a phenomenal car to to to headline. I mean the heavyweight champion with a world. I'm ali joe frazier to everybody fought in madison square garden. Big time that it just means a little bit more. And i know that that's not lost on kamara cushman or kobe covington. I cannot wait for those guys to get locked inside. The octagon but our c. r. c. We have been lucky to have man's gave on board with us from the start but last weekend we saw the return of the viper t. j. dillashaw and you'll look man recaps have been done to death to this point but for me it's about what's next because when a former king a guy that ruled a division makes his return. It's big news on the tip of everybody's tongue so afterward t. j. dillashaw did to the number two ranked bantamweight in the world. Of course very competitive fight. What do you want to see from the former champion because for me. He showed toughness durability he showed that he still the same t. dillashaw from before the suspension. So when you win the fight like that after two years suspension. What's next for the former champion. T. dillashaw well. it's to me. Dc i think tj dillashaw is waiting for the peter. Yon all joe sterling winner to get his shot at the title. I felt like the reason. You put a t. j. dillashaw from his two years of fresh off for two years benching against a guy suspension against a guy like corey san hagan is. Because you wanna see where he is you understand that. He's getting a little long in the tooth. He may not have a ton of fights left but you get the excitement that he brings and he brought that excitement against corey san hagan right. He comes out. He gets his knee injured in the first round he fights through that a nasty gash on his eye. He continues the fight through that. He controls the octagon. He walks corey. San hagan down the entire fight. Even the eagle comes out and says hey we need to see peter. Yon t. j. dillashaw for the belt. But peter yacht has to win the belt i he has to go out and recapture it from all joe sterling. We all know about the legal knee that took his boat away from him. But if peterman all joe sterling win net fight whoever's the champion i believe they face t. j. dillashaw knicks. And that's going to be a hell of a fight for all of us. It's going to be a fantastic fight. And honestly i don't want anything other than that. Cotija dila shell. He showed last weekend that he's still the very elite of the elite. And that's why you see it in the bantamweight rankings. He's the number two ranked bantamweight in the world. Only the fyodor yang. And i gotta be honest with you. If al jemaine sterling wasn't the champion due to that illegal knee t. J. dillashaw would not have entered the rankings. At number two he would have gone right back to number one. If the order young would continue ted fight and one in the way that it was trending fighting rights. No i'm saying that if he would have to fight right. 'cause pure yang was beating jemaine searle. Pure yang was raining out and he seemed to be on his way to win. That fight right then. That would be a little more clarity in the division t. j. dillashaw pizza. Corey san hagan. He wouldn't went right to number got you. He wouldn't be ranked number two. There may site so he would be the number one ring bantamweight in the world and he would be in line for the title shot against the champion but those guys have been scheduled again. Finally right there rescheduled to fight down in abu dhabi. It's gonna give us an idea of what is next for the champion t. j. dillashaw but listen t. J. dillashaw had a ton of injuries. Going into the fight. He spoke about his knees. He spoke about not sparring..

"kobe covington" Discussed on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show
"These guys were to in to going in the rory five and got the finish so my question to you. Is this when you have a guy like leeann who has won all these fights in a row and kobe who lost the title fight after one more win would fight. Do you as a fan prefer to see for this guy that seems to warrant a shot art a guy that brings the story with them like colby cuttings. Listen i think. I think we kind of underestimate how great the first fight was if we're just talking about somebody that brings a story dc. This wasn't just a story. I re watched the fight last night. Just because i wanted to see if i missed anything will was me covington. Actually that accurate or did the over here rights affect tomorrow's mine and is immoral who's minds chin made out of steel because he took some of those shots and just kept walking through it going into the fifth round. Somebody i respect the ton. I think his name is like daniel cormet or something like that. Says he says he says it's to to going into the fifth round and he says out of his own mouth a two division championship. Fighter says and these are the two best well to weights in the world. Joe rogan denver applies in the fifth. Round is going to decide that when you have a fight. That is dead exciting. That was that competitive also with the stories that built up to that night. This is something you have to run back and don't get me wrong. Liane edwards is deserving. Right since the kamara camara who's mind loss early on in his career. He's been on a tear. He's been on a street he just he just beat nick. Da's right even though he got clipped into like. We saw all of these things but koby coveting deserve this opportunity. He deserves this chance. Because when you look at kamara who's mon- and his defenses or in his rise to gain no welterweight belt that the fights haven't really been that competitive he's truly dominating. Thank about gilbert burns gilbert. Throw some shots early but then you dominates him in the second round obviously the knockout moscow. This is the fight that people need to see and understand. You notified a perspective. But you can't tell me you weren't excited about kobe. Covington kamara rosemont right away. Right right away. I got excited. Because i remember what the fight was but i also remember this everything that surrounded the fight right how. The crowd was so separated. Either you love coby coby but you do pay attention to we covington one way or the other you pay attention and it felt like tomorrow's mom was fighting for section of fans that wanted to put kobe covington in its place right. Kobe percent guy very vocal with his his opinions and it felt like ooh in fighting for the right to put him in his place but broke so competitive so close. And i'm speaking from experience speaking from talking tomorrow. Who's mon- speaking from knowing. Kobe covington since he was a guy in college when he was choosing what school he wanted to go to oklahoma state oregon state or any other college in the country knowing that those guys are ultimate competitors in himself understands that this is his toughest fight. He knows that i was. You dislike kobe covington. You have to respect him because he's such a dog are absolutely so. Dc in preparing to talk about ufc two sixty four. I met mic meaner. Right who's one of the ufc matchmakers and he was talking to me about the stylistic matchups in fights and that sometimes if you get too great if you get to black belt jujitsu guys that you might get a a stand up in the octagon and we watched kobe covington and camara. Who's mind two guys. Who are excellent greg. Grapplers and wrestlers staying total in the pocket and strike from their feet. And that's what was so exciting about the fight that's why it was so back and forth but it did seem that kobe's kobe strikes didn't have the exact same effect on komo rosemont. Some of the the front kicks to the body some of the uppercuts to the body. The straight right that landed and eventually broke his joe coming into this fight..
"kobe covington" Discussed on Five Rounds with Brett Okamoto
"It didn't seem to work against forty. And i feel like from him. Talking about destin's wife to now have father. He is just taking it way too. Far in when you're when when you're dealing with death in cova and all these other things that we've dealt with over the last year and a half that's all off limits. I mean we talked about wives family and being off limits. but then you're talking about a man's everything right. That was his everything. And you're talking about him being gone today due to something that has been so terrible for our entire world and you use that in a sense to get back in. You know what's probably most disturbing. Rc is that this wasn't done the day after the fight or the say nine because he was done weeks after the fight so it feels like it was. None of it was thought through for canada tweets. Something like that. I get shock value. I get trying to get people to talk. But way too far to the point that i immediately called habib last night and said hey are you. Okay right asking him if he's k. After having to see that specially with no ability to do anything about it again right you know. He spoke to my kids at my wrestling program the other day and said that he was never happier than when he got to fight mcgregor on the day because for so long you wanted to get his hands on connor and beat conor up. And we can't do that no more. Because he's not a prizefighter so now he has to just kind of swallow that so way too far ryan and honesty. When kinda does stuff like that. It's hard to understand how they're still this massive amount of people that support that type of behavior. Yeah there were there you know. We talked about it in in our first show together. How huge of conor mcgregor fan out was and it was some of the trash talk against. You know the josie altos. The as is that. I loved because because it was witty. It was fun it was quick. It wasn't about the personal. It was about the fighter and so now to take it to where you're talking about dustin as wife and even further than that speaking on could be father who could be late father who passed recently and also dealing with kovic something that's touched our entire world in there probably are very few people in the world that have been dealt with it personally or doesn't know someone that has and so as somebody who i'm just going to say it right now as someone who was a former conor mcgregor fan. This is something to me. He can never come back for. This isn't fun. This isn't sports. This is real. Life and conor mcgregor has crossed that line know across the line. And you know. I think when stuff like that is being said. I think it's a cry for help. Right connor has all the money in the world has all the fame but now when you start to dig at that level. It's like somebody needs to get to mcgregor and help him right. Start to kind of reshift his mind in his focus and getting back to a better place in It's unfortunate now ryan. I don't know if you can tell. But before i had two swiss microphone my might just for some reason with on so. I know that we have to acknowledge that. I have a different michael as we go forward you know for. As big of a stars conor mcgregor is and was and what he means to the sport. Obviously the sport continues to move and yesterday got great news that kobe covington is going to get a rematch against kamara. Use mine in. What was one of the greatest fights the welterweight division history. These guys were to into gordon. The rory five and got the finish so my question to you. Is this when you have a guy like leeann who has won all these fights in a row and kobe who lost loose and get the title fight after one more win would fight. Do you as a fan prefer to see for this guy that seems to warrant a shot art a guy that brings the story with them like colby cuttings. Listen i think.

"kobe covington" Discussed on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani
"The big reveal. That's it okay. I guess. I mean i guess you got your headlines but didn't really do anything didn't make me want to burn all my dustin pori shirts and pour out his hot sauce in the sink. I didn't feel the need to do any of that. What do you think for danda. What what did the video release actually accomplish. Did it accomplish anything. I think it's it's i feel like this is like a bad position because everything has been said but what i see it is. I think there's no way around it like it. Just proved that. Kobe covington lake. Alex said is a fucking idiot by the whole thing. Sorry i ne- i. It's not my podcast. I should not be squaring apology listeners. Rooms and that's that's that's a deduction award the morning. You gotta give a water look ahead. I can win deduction or ears. But the whole thing is that. I feel like it reeks of desperation. Right this is a person who i for me. I think for a group of people like his whole making the whole thing was very transparent from the gecko. I never really thought like covington. Offered something interesting or original. He wanted to be a he'll but he did it in the most obvious and lazy way possible and i can't say that it didn't work Did it got him a fan base but the problem with that kind of thing is that he was never a big ward smith. He was a sharp. Because you had villainy types like bisbee who made a toll turnaround. But i think all of us can remember a time. Except for maybe christine. Cushy is probably very young. she looks very young. I can't wait to hear old fernanda. Thanks i am because it's the age that i'm thinking. I'm walking off dramatically wrong. The twenty four she walks off. It's a one wait. She's not that far off. So i will give her that. I'm saying go ahead. The whole thing is that remember a time when paying was total villain and but he kept it interesting by just being smart and quake in having like cool comebacks and stuff and this has never been covington thing. His whole thing was very prepackaged has always been and he gets old after a while right so i feel like i for again. I have maybe a tough time engaging buzz because at once upon a time i worked for a may junkin. I was in the news all day. So things were a lot more my face than they are now but i don't see him getting engagement attention for his usual shenanigans the way that he used to and so he. Does this attacking ho a guy who is well known for has you know a a humanitarian thing who has his own organization who is known as one of the biggest good guys in mma. And by doing that he can get attention on on himself like it's been established like all of us like everyone said it was bad attention because everybody kind of agreed. I think a lot of people kinda like with the guy like there was no headgear. Whatever or that the celebration was extra but people who this people who know how hard sparring sections are probably weren't that surprised The guy or the video himself on sorry. I forgot his name. His brazilian feted himself like there was nothing out of the ordinary The celebration thing. It was him like hyping himself up during a camp. And that's you know the kind of thing he do. He even said it himself like i personally don't know if i would do it but i don't mind that he did 'cause it's you know his mindset in whatever he needs to do so it was bad attention but we got us talking about for kobe. Covington again in the middle of freaking huge five week that he's not involved so to that extent was he successful. Is this what he wanted to do like his his just to get his name out there that he anticipate may be that people wouldn't even care. I don't know. I don't know if it's smart enough for that. I don't know him personally. I when i say colby competent. Wanna talk about kobe covington. I'm talking about the persona. I'm not talking about the person which i have a whole other argument about. How does it make anything any better. Because if you're doing sheetings things for money doesn't make you any less up. Sorry not chitty badly. I don't i don't know that's the thing right. What did it accomplish. Accomplished us talking about him in a fi week. That had nothing to do with. Maybe that was his go. Well i mean if the plan was to rattle emporia. It didn't seem to rattle him at all. I did reach out to colby to see if he had any reaction to the reaction. And i did not get a response so so take from that what you will but we will move if these guys reaction to my call out because of one of the great things that man's career because he's he's bear jails on it like he has. The right ideas execution is awful. And i think one hour long session catching the business for me between the lengths. He will learn a lot of things. And you better man for it you you are. What has been missing. I think jed from the colby covington formula for for all the flack that we have given him over the past couple of years over the course of this show. It's really like you said one. Good tete-a-tete avec. Jed michou that will that will just turn everything around form. It will win. It'll you know who knows it might even win in khorasan over. I don't know maybe maybe you can do that for him. I sincerely doubt it. But i've seen you. I've seen you two strangers things before. Well we are going to move ahead to the world of bela tor in some big news. That went down a couple of weeks ago but the point for round number three goes to..
"kobe covington" Discussed on The Corner
"All right time for the home stretch. Mma is what we're talking to close out the show had a ufc pay per view a good one. All things considered I was covering the fights. Boroughs able to go back and watch it. So i was like all don't i didn't think i would really have time to sit down and and dig into the card but it seemed like this lasted forever. But that's what happens when you have a five round fight for no reason in the middle of your main car you have a bunch of decisions tough decisions but the fights themselves did seem pretty cool. Law murphy beat drawing board. That's something i think. We both got wrong You pick lorimer. No i picked murphy. Yeah you pick gowda. Would that fight like if anybody watches it. She looked like she wanted. The first thing that they're laura murphy one second. But i saw you gave her the first and that they're a lot of people gave first and third. Yeah boy it's gonna crusher doesn't matter it's yes it's a one way ticket to hell. That's what you're fighting for. But main card light-heavyweight paul craig versus jamal hill. Jesus christ i thought it was going to keep rolling this. He ended up the one place. You don't wanna end up on the ground. And his arm one how he fought after getting locked up his arm is in there. You see it. I break stand. And then he keeps going and goes that he gets stopped shortly after that but may when he gets up the just hanging back swinging to and fro elephant trunk. I was like dish is now a good medic. Somebody nobody came in. He actually did the hand at the end of the free. Yeah is obsolete place again. Lewis like somebody got a notice this anybody but you know the crazy thing is he. Didn't his are just dislocated right. Yeah they said. It was fine full range of motion after the fight. Well after the press conference that's crazy. Oh that still hurts like a mo fool now of course it does it. It looks horrible so he loses. I loss punk craig. Good and it's new. Blood and heavyweight division does not who we thought it was going to be but still. It's a good opener for the card. 'cause that at arm went viral and it was crazy. Oh yeah it was bad. And then rough. Second fight blah muhammed versus damian. Maya by by damian minor so my loses decision to allow muhammed. We talked about you. Know unfortunately hypoc. Dan get to follow through liane edwards in that fight but now comes back continues on his winning ways. And your maya you just. You don't got it anymore. Nominee smith specialist. But if you strike striking anything and you little bit older. It's like what is he forty three. Yeah and you don't got the explosiveness to get people on the ground. Well he never really had the explosiveness but you know he. He knew how to clinch to take down. And now he's fighting. Younger fighters were stronger. Wing falls for your bullshit. My forty three about to be forty four. Yeah is he didn't have much of a chance. No so he is. He is bella. Tour damian meyer. If he wants to continue but he's a good run. I mean forty three so you have see you. You've done well for yourself. I mean fought anderson silva for the middleweight title in absolutely dreadful fight but he fought in it. It might be so yes pretty. Bad defied sucks abu dhabi. That was terrible and then next fight liane edwards was the as five. Rounder and nate. Must bleed. I don't believe more nature. Cody cody bleeding. So may goes in. I mean get swept. The first four rounds leon looks good in all aspects and the nate rocks. Leon would like a minute left in the fight. Points adam labs. Adam can't close it out the leon survives and you close your eyes. You just listen after this. I swear to god you'd think navy has one fight. The as left is a bigger star land. One punch. That rock liane edwards. Dan leon did. I would argue. Nate is one fight away from a championship fight if he wants and leon is probably needing to take another flight before getting entire opportunity to well. I mean kobe. Covington is already next ally so yes leeann take another fight. I can't think of another fighter who is as mediocre in record as ds's that's as big of star. I've never seen anything like this superstar. I've compared him to the emanuel augusta's of mma shut up manual gusts. I just followed him. On a ringside. I g that's long posted a carousel and you'd be surprised how many people don't know about the drunken master drunk but he was entertaining his hell He gave a lot of opponents problems. Floyd has always said it's as tough as he was lobbed in like half his loss. Oh yes yes a really just constantly happen but he came to fight. He was fun to watch but he was. Never like a big star. Nate diaz has thrived mediocrity like. I can't explain this name. Another twenty and thirteen fighter. Who is a bigger story like. He got dominated for four minutes way. Twelve was at twenty nine minutes of the fight again dominated then he lands right hand twenty years. You gave him a sick. Oh yeah my bad my bad. Yeah dig east So he has twenty four minutes. So nate diaz lanza right hand. Right if you bet on this fight. I'm certainly wanna kill me. Because he steps back and points. Leeann was leeann is dead to rights yet. A minute left. Nate s could've finished them off. But he didn't you know what nobody cares people that bet on. Ds nobody cares. He's become a big star. And.
"kobe covington" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Both of these guys would be entitled contention. Uh, in the top three, but the number one guy in the world right now is Kobe Covington and him and news models. One of the greatest fights you'll ever see to that rematch has to happen. I'm excited about that when we get to use money in just one minute, Nick Diaz and ideas, brother You said the past man that you didn't think that was he was done. We thought he wasn't coming back and recently have seen comments from you saying he could fight before 2021 is over. What went into that and I got to follow up for you on whether or not He's a superstar. Is this a guy who can still draws you name that just because he's a Diaz? He's going to draw. Is he a superstar fighter? Where does that start for him? Come back to the U. F C Yeah. We met down in Jacksonville and you know me. I'm usually very pessimistic when it comes to them fighting. I've been very optimistic since the Jacksonville, uh, meeting so Yes, He's definitely a star. Him and Nate are both stars and and if we can pull that off this year, you know we will. Is it a tough situation and navigate getting a guy back into the ring like that? I'm not talking about a guy who's been a legend for a long time. I mean, he's been out for for years, so I'm wondering you don't want to ease a guy back in. You want to give you an opportunity to fight and show what he's worth and what he can do. But is that a tough decision for you to try to find a good match up for that? I can tell you this history. You know, If you look through history, they didn't fare well, the guys who took a lot of time off. I mean, even Muhammad Ali after 3 3.5 years that he took off Never look the same again, so it's very hard to do. I don't think anybody's ever done it so Yeah. You step away from the ring like that, trying to get back in the fight game. It's tough to catch hands to the face and then turn right back around and and be the same guy. You mentioned Colby Covington against tomorrow. Whose mom, This is what I think everybody wants to see us, man. I mean, like, I don't want to say he's underrated or anything, but I think that that fight at 2 61 really made people aware that this guy's one of the greatest, if not the greatest fighter in this division of all time. Where does this fight take place? When is this going to happen? And I want to get into potentially UFC Africa in 2022 about growing this game international and having a newsman fighter and as you find out that way, Colby and Huisman when does that go down? And then what does the future hold for UFC in Africa? I could not agree with you more. I think that Guzman is one of the best ever. Um and the guy looks better Every time he fights. I'm looking very forward to the rematch with him and Kobe. I don't know when we'll we'll get it on probably the end of the summer early fall. Um And yes, we're looking to go to Africa to We were, uh We're looking at probably, uh, 23. For Africa. Okay, We're looking at it. Are there other places you're looking at me? We're talking about growing the game and growing the fight. Game Global here. Are there other places that you guys need to go? Or that you're saying that's an untapped resource? If we hit that we're gonna get a whole big fan base there. Um, you know, it depends on what happens. Obviously, if we got our first ever Italian middleweight world champion, maybe you do something Italy who knows? I mean, we'll see how this thing plays out. But we're always looking To go into territories that we've never been. You know, we were I was looking at just, you know, Twitter bouncing around stories and stuff things to to bounce off of you. And I saw that you did a video where you were eating. Speaking of Italy. You were eating at that pasta inside of a French roll or some What was that? What was that, man? I'm not I'm not a novelty guy like that. It looked good to me. Then you took a bite. You were like, Holy crap, man. This thing sucks. What are you doing? You're doing food reviews now data. Yeah. So we didn't think called epic Friday. Every Friday. Yeah, and we eat some kind of weird food that we found on the Internet. And yeah, that was one of them.

"kobe covington" Discussed on You're Welcome! With Chael Sonnen
"And he gave an insult. It was meant as an insult that kamara whose men over the years has fallen in love with his hands. And i realized in the world of insults like that's low fodder however it is leon try to give an assessment of look. I'm understanding uis. Men and who's men is becoming more one dimensional. That is what he was saying by fall up with his hands. And you know what. That's a real thing. I don't know that. I have seen kamara osmond do it. I will look for it now. Now that leon is brought it to my attention. I will look for a little bit. What i have seen with uis man is that he is using his hands a lot to set up his wrestling still. He is a threat of wrestling at all times. He was a major threat to gilbert burns at all times. He had a little bit of hesitation of going to the ground. Strategically stayed on his feet with kobe. Covington he an kobe through wrestling out. They just knew each other and respected each other. So this probably isn't gonna work. Let's go to plan b. They both they both came to the same opinion which we didn't know until the referee said. Are you ready. And it turned into an absolute war on their feet. I bring it to you. Because i'm not. I'm not positive that leon's right even though if you go back and you look at the recent fights the last three to four by uis men. They were very standard heavy. that's true i just. I just think they were done for strategic reasons. I think you're respected gilbert on the ground. I think the same thing with moslem. I think he was getting ready to take down. I think he did. Throw that a out against kobe covington but if you back up before that to the night. He won the championship which was a terribly long ago. It was all ground game. So i don't know that i'm ready to label. Who's been with that yet. But leon most certainly has the right to his opinion and particularly if he's going to be his future opponent that would play right into leon's hand. I don't know if leon would wanna be pointing that out. But the best thing that leon could do is in a put a standup battle with us. Men and whether that works out or not. That's the best thing that he could do. I don't think you want us been coming out there tackling. You're staying on top of your grinding on you. I don't think and that's a golf term fell in love with. It's a guy falls in love with his swing so golf term but it is fear and i've seen it a number times the only guy i've really seen at work out for the duration of his career is my teammate dan henderson. Dan was a two time olympic wrestler. Nobody would have known good hands including himself turns out near the same set of every time he changed pop back up through a right down the middle and it was so hard even call it h. I felt that thing. I couldn't even tell you how many times he was a natural and didn't miss even practice. He just had an accuracy he had a power that was natural hit a time. He had a setup that was natural. Who's changed elevations just like you do wrestling comeback. Everything just fit. It worked out for him. I have seen josh cost. Check would be guilty of fall in love with his right hand. Johny hendricks would fall into that category. Now i'm talking about the best guys in the world so i don't know that there's any kind of an insult here. It is true though that over a period of time you will lend to from a psychological standpoint. Whatever gets you the most oohs and aahs from the crowd. Ooh you will just naturally gravitate in that area. And sometimes you'll convince yourself i'm okay and then you'll go out and have a good performance. I mean i would imagine if i'm an shoes. And i just knocked out mazda. It'll turn him sideways by the way. Never seen that before. Who's been hit. Mazda also square and so clean the muslim who turned sideways for the for the follow of shot that put. I'm just saying. Yeah i yeah. I bet who's been does really believe in his hands shore. I could also see where that would be a problem. I mean that's a shootout game who's been played that game with burns just two fights ago and who's been got hurt twice now. He worked his way through it. He pushed through it. I give him credit. I'm not faulting shared with you. How risky that game is for sure. And i'm not sure if i was who's been opponent or future opponent. I would tip him off to his weaknesses. Used to study guys all the time. And it wasn't me was clayton. Hires but clayton was a master of it. He was a master and he could see everything and he would point things out and he would tell it to me. One time clayton would study my opponents. Call coaches run which is one of the hardest workouts i've ever done. But the coaches run wasn't the coaches runs. Were coach does it with me. So we meet. We go to pace. We talk the entire time. That is the one and only time clayton. I would strategized that was it. That was the talk. Whatever i absorbed in took with me for the next ten weeks. That was the talk and remember nate. Marquardt getting ready to fight. Nate markwort and i was a two and a half to one underdog. And i had trained would nate before mate. Should have been the favourite going in this fight but clayton had notice something and it was real simple but he used to compare nate to a drag car. A drag car will fire up and then it will go one thing that always did and it was an every video and every sequence of every fight that clayton studies before nate would come after you shake i every time never miss. He was a drag. He get warmed up and then boom he would come at you put every time it faking jab throw right it was a fake right. Throw a right fake throw kick. It wasn't these things he would do. Emotion and then he would come at you full sprint. He put a lot of guys down. Just before me put damian my down in like ten seconds but he bill. He did the drag car i he did it. Every single time was a major benefit that i had and i waited for that drag car boom and that's when i went attack i knew i had a beat. I knew that. I had to beat before he could get off. And it's a real thing. I do it too. I don't know what my tendencies are tells are. I don't know. I changed them if i knew. But i can't tell you habits or a real thing when you learn on the midst and then you go to the heavy bag and then you go to the ring. There's things that you develop and you can't get around them. They become absolute habit right. You comb your hair the same every day. Put your dirhams. You brush.
"kobe covington" Discussed on MMA Junkie Radio
"Some joe. I agree with what you're saying. Yeah anyway the careers done. it's over. let's get onto kobe comington. he's interested in finding moslo next. I agree with them there but at some point like to see the fight. I'd like to see dillashaw. Babe ruth although. I don't think that's gonna happen favors He's kind of picking fights here and there if he's gonna do it at all anymore. Who knows i thought. Once he came back can be ricky somoza very respectable bantamweight. He was all right all right. I had to get another another fire in there. But i didn't on now bouncing. But then he went in there and lost against peter yang announcement another at least years since he's fought Dillashaw about five six years younger I love the bad blood. So i would love to see it. That's the same way. I would love to see covington versus is it all biking bring with covington in saying should at the muzzle nascar. Dana white's already said. You're the number one. Contender was willing to give up. Any should be willing to covering the shot. And actually convinces probably pretty payday. I mean unless one's got the belief that gsp our conor mcgregor obese in a comeback. I mean those will always be more lucrative fights with. I don't think walmart so at this point the continent's most lucrative see his point there but i hope he doesn't think that others don't want to see that fight at some point. I think it would be a monster. We're always gonna wanna watch it but it meant so much more a year ago. You know how to happen around that time frame when you think of like the ultimate fighter. That's what you wanna see. You wanna see to like that on their. Gimme gimme a few weeks of that of tuning in and watching those guys go at it and then on top of that. You're gonna sell me a fight. There tailor made for something like that. Kobe covington tyron. Woodley would have been another one good to bring back that show But we're always going to want to tune in to see what happens because there's unfinished business. But the longer we wait the less it really means kinda like floyd manny little bit and look out for that interview on our youtube page. If you wanna the whole thing with mike bond. Who was doing a tour of south florida. Sanford emma american top team anime masters to be begins down there by a few other spots as well go to youtube dot com slash anime junkie video. The all extended press conferences donkey. Radio highlights and interviews that are done by all of our staff youtube on fourth flash may just video. It gets pretty tenths at time. Covington is all in on. Even somebody i mean slings. My left and right i would prefer would stick to the fighter. Themselves models models that is month was But he makes it personal. And i'm like covington lau all still just throwing a lot of personal shade out there. I think he's just at these in a moment. He's in it for the moment. I don't know what he's thinking long term. But you and. I have been around in different instances and He can be a completely different guy. the type of guy where you look at them and go that guy. There's no way he would be capable of saying some of things that you see him say is just in the moment amazon. Trying to give an excuse to say that it's okay. But i think he just figured out. This is what i'm gonna do. If i'm gonna do it all in and you just shove this gypsum in all in and we'll see what comes out of it but i'll tell you what we keep winning bite's gonna matter which say you know we're gonna wanna tune in we'll see you know those mom fight with a little bit of a wakeup call. But at the end of the day mons a beast and kobi's given him the best fight he's had date so even in his loss he kinda looked good. So we'll see what happens here but was a time period where dana. I couldn't wait for him being gone or lose. And now i think you start to get a little hip to. We might have some them. I also noticed. Another thing is deliveries a lot smoother. As he's been a pretty good trash talker but he never read the elite with like the mcgregor's in and some of the others that is really trip up over their words. It's always a smooth. Delivery has always had a pretty good smacktalk but he'll sometimes he gets to appoint were every answers a witty line and it doesn't have to be with point with mike bond and he was slowing so good on him. You know good on him. We need more of those guys I don't know any news about mom versus covington. But i hope that that's one of the fights against gay because of you look out into. The future of champions have been active. We got two title fights coming up with marvin vittoria. In israel out of sonya davis figuring versus brandon marino. Amanda nunez is going to defend about against julianna pena conor mcgregor's Sorry sunday what am i thinking We just had the the coronation of lightweight tile with charles oliveira michael chandler. But we know in. God is defend against somebody are either jones lewis at this point lonzo shares on the books. So i just hoping we see coming. I don't even care if they go. November new york vegas december. Whatever not that. I personally know that those official dates with that was the pattern. The last year's i wouldn't mind that did have a quick turnaround.
UFC featherweight champ defends title in split decision
"I Will Fight Island was officially christened tonight for the UFC in Abu. Dhabi there was no baptism to be had in the main event of UFC two fifty one. What's going on everybody? Welcome to the official. You have to fifty one post fight. Show here on, May, finding dot com I'm Mike Heck location this week from Boston Massachusetts visiting the parents this weekend. That is Jose Jose. Main Event Kamara, who's been retains a welterweight title against Whore Mazal. Challenger looked pretty darn good in that first round. I'm pretty surprised that judges gave in that first round, but it was the much fresher champion that was able to sort of chip away at the always game, or hey mazda throughout the fire Ab. Fresher champion but Komo. Zeman was basically been in camps since beginning of this year, despite was like Ben Booked and booked in both supposed to fight earlier this by giving burns, and also muzzle steps in, so yes, he's finally fresher because he he's had the full camp and everything but I think Kamara wasn't one hundred percent in that fight, either considering this long extended, Feick at Ala, similar to twenty Ferguson with all these these these fights falling apart, but Kamara who's been one nonetheless, might not have been the most exciting fight. I saw a couple of tweets complaining about the fight and I really take that. I felt it was a lot of fans that were on this very muzzle hype train. He's on the video game cover on this baptism round the resurrection Super Necessary Punches bef tile, and that they were expecting violence, even mice I myself said fight between WHO's minimize well probably has a higher chance of ending in a violent way, but it did not come out who's been one I had them winning all five rounds the first round I guess. Didn't really matter to me. Who won that? I still come who's been what at least four of the rounds comfortably? The people complain about. The foot stopped the wrestling the headbutts. That stuff will come out. Who's been did what he had to do to win. That's exactly why I thought he would. Take, her might as well because all the time Mazal taking this fight on short notice. Kamara also took this fire. On short notice gets an extra a completely different fighter between Gilbert Burns as well. It's completely rechange leftist camp Had his new trevor wittman is corn for the first time fighting the guy all this bad blood is in the air all the pressures on him, and perform a like we ourselves, said all the pressures on who's Madonna not not a whole lot on Mazal, but at the end of the day. Who's been doing what he had to do? I didn't have a problem with the way fought. Might not have been the most exciting, but if I was going to pick up, predict away whose men would pull this off. This is exactly how I thought he would do it. Yeah, when you get a fight like this and you have a guy as hot as MAS. Bat brings in a lot of the casual fan base. Does your watch? As many events as we watch, and some of the hardcore fans watch everything so most people expected this fight to go exactly that way I thought the first row was going to be the most interesting round, obviously, because of Mazda was going to get it done. He's probably going to have to do it in the first five minutes, and this is the fire. We got like Mara. Who's been defends his title. For the second time. It was another classic who's been like performance and he gets a one-sided win and highly anticipated main event so in the end. We like to talk about the overall letter grade, but it felt like just kind of looking at the time slot when we're all said and done. We're getting ready to hit record here. We're just like man this is this is super late like I feel like the card and the whole night in a weird way. Wet Kinda slow did it not. started off really really quickly. Might just. Like I feel like the first few flew by and all of a sudden I had been watching fights for two and a half three hours and I'm like wow, this fight is cars going quickly I like this pace, and then we the main card and Amanda he boss comes in, and just submits patriots immediately i. wish went exactly as I expected, but then there was decision with Rosen on drugs, and then even Yawn Aldo finish, but it was in the fifth round, so there's still basically fought for twenty five minutes, and then we get twenty five minutes, Vulcanology Holloway and then we get twenty five minutes of in Mazda, also of these we've seen. We saw that graphic on the screen like. All the cards are three title fights, and like we used to fourteen had like Woodley Maya in Jones, a cormet and Cyborg Abinger, and then to seventeen to five those had some bangers like like two to seventeen had three epic fights three like violent, like just three of the craziest finishes you'll see. And then, of course to a five, the CONOR McGregor show, and then to seventeen had the DC Jones trilogy, so I think we're a little maybe. We'll. We'll spoiled on these three. These three title fight cars while we're expecting something like that and I loved all all great fights off spectacular fights, but I think a lot of fans are tuning in to see fight island. In the Mazar strain, all these title-fights might have been. A limited. I could see why they might have been little disappointed. I didn't have a problem with it, but probably was the night Dana White wanted in terms of finishes. Yeah, the main event may have disappointed some people but for. The Sake, this is like the best thing that could have happened for the welterweight division like if you're burns. Edwards these guys are pretty happy right now. Especially Gilbert Burns. One hundred percent I mean we. We set it on count after it was on what the heck or or post eyesore produce. All kind of blend together at this point in the summer, but we. We said if Moslem Dole wins. That's going to be a problem for the US's pockets the welterweight division I mean. We were talking about him fighting the bringing the both belts so that the Conor McGregor. The table and all this. Kamara who's been one and it's? It's a no brainer that Gobert burn gets three matches. Suppose he should've been fighting tonight. before covid nineteen October, nineteen. That's applaud the car, so yeah, for all the way division, and the the the martial art fans of the world that don't like quote unquote. Holding divisions I think that's a good thing, but I. Honestly I love chaos at Moscow had one I. Think I, think it would have been fun time in the world of May. And Mazda all. Let's be clear. We all know this. He was the a side heading into this fight. He's the reason. There was a lot of buzz and a lot of fanfare when you had a guy like game bread in the street that he's on. That's what happens, but a lot of people wanNA know where he goes from here. Because despite losing the fight tonight, he still has a ton of options moving forward. Chaos can still rain in some way Jose. Can you say that again? You cut off quick second. Chaos can rain. For horny Mas at all got about it because he's got so many options moving forward despite the loss tonight. Yeah, I mean Hoy Mazdas. All I'm Kamara. WHO's been himself set like he's GonNa. He's like. He's like he's GonNa. Lose all these like excuses. Bill didn't talk the finance days notice flu costs. The country doesn't have was coach in the gym, covert nineteen this and that so like I. Don't think I of course I think Mazda obviously cooled anytime. You lose. You cool a little bit Conor McGregor and Nadir's, and it's such an insane finish that they run it back, and you have another epic fight like that, but for Mazda all you're obviously going to a little bit but he himself said. Let me, get a couple of wins and they'll run back. I'm sure he want. He would love to five full camp but the Colby College. Is there I? Think that is going to drum up a whole lot of interest I. think people might even be more interested in that fight in the dynamic between those two fires, oarsmen and I think that Kobe Covington already Moslems? Fight does not need a title online. That's just two guys. They hate each other I wanNA break brick on each other's faces. WHO'S MCCANN? Fight Gillard. Leeann, Edwards of course out there, wonder boy thompsons, working his way up Santana, positive I think has covered to so he somewhere out there, so the welterweight division will move, but for now Mazda all. Of course cooled, but he's still I think still the hottest commodity hundred seventy pounds.
