You know what. That's a great question. But why should i answer it when we can have luke rocco themself answer it less welcome in the former. Ufc champion former strikeforce. Middleweight champion. My man luke rockall rockall. How you doing my friend noelle momentum. Good to see you good to be lack on look listen. What about that question right like you get longer and you've accomplished and you've accomplished with things you've accomplished rockall. People start to question whether or not you still have it. If you can't get past sean. Strickland does this point to the end of your career. Dc you know as well as me like you said you read off. The accomplishments of i've done i've done strikeforce world championships i've done. Uc will championships. And the mindset is never you never let losing any any your brain and so let's not a thought process so i'm not thinking about that. I'm thinking about this kid's ass. I'm thinking about putting myself back. Where where i belong more. I know it can be when you look at. Sean strickland right. There seems to be some tension between you two. And i don't know if it's a personality class i don't know because it doesn't really excite you fight that you are offered before that you kind of said this doesn't really get the juices flowing. Was that fight that he won enough to change that completely. Now you view as illegitimate threaten a guy that can really propel you right back into where you want to be in the middleweight division. I mean who is tough. I seen him in the gym. And the news tough It wasn't a name at all. No one really new of them and it didn't didn't exciting you know. Now he's got he's got a he's got a good ranking and it's madison square garden too. So i mean between the two the card the stage in and obviously taking taking a ranking getting somewhat of a name. They pushed him pretty hard last time. So it gets me up. And this kid just. I really don't like him. I don't like liked way treats people in the german and He's he's just a guy that goes out. There says he wants to kill somebody in the ring it'd be it'd be happy to kill somebody. We're all professionals here. And that tab that thought process is is just the stupidest thing of her. And i just don't like like i said i've seen him in the gym. I've seen i treats people in these. This is not someone. Do you know i wanna see representing the sport. You know when you talk about seeing them in the gym rock. There's a thing about what happens in the gym stays in the gym right. We don't carry that into our competitions. I did you ensure get to train together right. Did y'all get the train together. If so was that anything you could use in the fight. And what. Jim what are you talking about what you saw on strictly. Because i'm confused Sean sean like kid jumps around. He that goes from gym to gym and and he has. It must must build that lifestyle. Must build 'cause like his no new neutral team so he's constantly putting themselves into every other team in just doing battle and trying to hurt. People be rather than working with teammates in john deduce. Thanks so i came down. Ruka chain once You know it's it's something again. Yeah he's kid. Rock leafy when i'm outside of camp go when i'm not camp. Do you a different person i've got. I've got understanding who he is. I don't think he has a true. Who i am why. Okay okay okay. So that wasn't a real luke rocco. Because as i can attest from a friendship point and model lifestyle the hollywood lifestyle luke. Rocco likes to enjoy himself in terms of living life. When he's not prepared for something but as you turn the focus back to prepared for a fight right in god sean. Strickland of the docket. You have been very vocal about a lot of things in regards to your career but when you look at your career and you look at luke. Rocco today opposed to five years ago. What's the ultimate goal because a lot of our contemporaries a lot of guys that we shared. The top of the mountaintop. now are gone. How does luke rocco will work himself back into title contention if that's even something he's still always to do inside the octagon. I think just fighting more present. I think that's been my problem is. I've had so many other distractions. So many things pulled from me over the years and put the pressure on me to where i've been able to fight you presently as as i could be you know with weight on my shoulders in that you kinda rush through things. You don't relax you don't you're not. You're not there so This time is. I've had my time away from the sport and you know. I know that you know my windows closing. I'm still. I still feel like i'm the best at what i do And i want to end it on my own terms. I felt like i my fight against your well was not an setup in all with a lot of things that went on with that fight complications. It wasn't really true to forms. And in on i jumped up and i fought yom block. Woods is now the champion. And i just overshot my water and i didn't generate right so that that age is that age is great right. That fight when you went having bovis becomes a champion right. Beats everybody up in the as we is today so you could take something from that but at middleweight is where you've always been the most dangerous now when you look at the middleweight landscape. A guy with your name a guy. That's accomplished compensating that you got it. Only takes a little bit to put himself back into the conversation. So we're looking sean. Strickland in november. How soon would luke rockwood like to get back in there and just go full full steam ahead to try to re introduce themselves to the upper echelon of the division. I mean. I think i think this is. This is an avoid identify myself. Right now. Depending on how i perform and how i go in there and do my thing. That's that's all it. Is you know what i mean. It doesn't it doesn't take much. This is madison square garden. I have a ranked opponent and so going out there and pornography performance. I think asserts myself and prince myself right where i want to be and you know i'm thirty six. I gotta gotta come out clean and then we can the mcclintock champ one more question for you gotta ask me. I can't let somebody come on here in not get their thoughts on jake paul entire in would last weekend. We little fight weekend. But also the pos fight antics that went on you at tyrant asks for rematch. You had jake. Paul retired unreturned. That logan paul. In their dave chapelle congratulate darn as you want what you take a fight luke. Who did you think it was as close as the judges may have scored it in like. What is your feeling when you watch all these former mixed martial arts champions fighting in these boxing matches and talk to me about tyrant specifically in the fight against jake. Paul.

This weekend should be on the same car as the edison. You whitaker fight against jared cannon. Here that's the fight that should happen. Because if canadair fights brunson say brunson gets through him you will see him after show very improve wrestle which did against gasoline if he has to fight till you see there until it would an opportunity to reintroduce and propel himself into a title shot because i got to say this about their until their until kind of has that thing right there until he's boisterous. He's everything you think of. When you think an english fighter right we go back to ricky hat. We go back to. Prince naseem ahmed right. They're they're kind of arrogant right and you need that. Liane edwards is the best fighter in england right now but he's very reserved very quiet. Leonardo's is a guy that you want to go sit and watch movie with. Hang out there until you wanna hit the public. You wanna go. Party with a darren till but you also want it to go and party with michael bisbee. You want the party. Would ricky hatton you at the party would prince. I seen right. It was the same issue that i think. Lennox lewis had when he was the heavyweight champion of the world he was to reserve. He did not strike. Fear in you and that reserve mentality reserved approach is why i believe that leeann edwards gets overlooked so much but a dare until you have all those things he has all those qualities and i feel like for mixed martial arts in england to state where it is for a long time. It was written it. Rode the back of michael business right. Either you love visiting or you hated bisbee. You always tuned in there until has that same type of ability for english mixed martial arts. That's type of guy that needs to be at the forefront of their fight in there fighting in the united states of america big spot for their until not only in terms of beating a guy. That's tough like derek brunson but also four what english mixed martial arts needs right now in terms of the ufc guys. I have loved this. This has been truly phenomenal but in order to do this we got bills. I got bills to pay. So how do i pay. Bills appealing filled with these ad. Read so even though you may not love. I love.

"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.

"luke rocco" Discussed on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani

"In the line and it's pretty fraud at this point because he's at the point in his career where he is fighting top guys. He's probably you know even if he might not have all the money leftover. He's he's probably getting paid more and the gist of it is. There are not many easy fights. The higher you get so i had an out of left field suggestion For a fight that i would keep him busy. It'll be fun. yes and that is zak. Cummings oh and why do i say why would i say that. I feel yourself in my matchmaking hot. I don't know if you guys think of it this way but it's like you think of it is like well. Here's the fight he should take. Here's the fight that he will take or the. Here's a fight bit. You know that that seems like a fight that could actually happen like there are fights that are logical that that should happen like till winner till versus bronze net seems logical me in a very competitive from a competitive standpoint. But that doesn't always apply here for a variety of different reasons. So i thought he would take that fight because that's an exciting match up because he thinks it's winnable and because it will basically keep him keep the income The revenue coming in so I didn't you know there are more zak. Cummings out there. In the middleweight. Division was the one that i pull out a short but the gist of it was that the challenge for him is. You're gonna need to find a fight that he feels as winnable and will keep him busy so that was one of the ideas that i have if we're going to keep him busy not having weight because look is versus. Whitaker is not going to take place this year. It could be well into next year. Depending on what. The situation is tobin in everything. Yup and then the winner of till brunson who knows what shape that they're going to be in at at the end of that so there's a lot of variables here. There's a good reason for him to stay busy. And it's a matter of who he stays busy against. Yeah there's about to be a lot of waiting at one eight five. It's great that we have these cool fights coming out. We've got that till brunson as you mentioned the month after that Cost and vittori and then the month after that Sean strickland in luke rocco so we have really cool fights coming up. It's just after those bites are done. I'd be very surprised if we see any of those guys fight again until twenty twenty two unless maybe someone jumps on the kennan near You know contract for his next next offer. So i did. I went a little unrealistic here. I think you're right. It's were privacy sooner rather than later if we take his post by speech at face value. It sounds like he needs to stay busy. It sounds like he's not in the business of waiting right now so i went sort of Magical matchmaker here. Where i'm hoping things work out for kennedy era so he has some some money come in and he can. He can wait in live comfortably. Until then because i want to see him fights the strickland ruckle winner. So that's You'll see to sixty eight november six but that is a long way again. That is three months away still a two and a half months and then they have to wait You know they need to recover. Whoever wins that fight unless they wanted to really quick turnaround. So i'm essentially putting cannon on the shelf until as i said until twenty twenty two which it doesn't sound like is ideal for him does not sound like something he wants to do. That would be my choice. If everything worked out perfectly which again on this show. Sometimes we just wave the magic wand stephen and that's just but Yes you went with the more practical. And what's more likely to happen and i agree. I do think we see him fight. Maybe a amid to someone outside the top ten To stay busy and to keep himself on the winning track which might not be the worst thing. Yeah i don't. I don't i don't mind your idea. I mean that's actually from a more logical standpoint in actually given everything that's in play with the schedule it might end up working out just fine two months as well but three months not that big of a deal All things considered so. I like that idea to and i think you're gonna find us a lot. I'm gonna agree with you. i'm gonna go. Oh that was my idea. Oh yeah that's a better idea. No no no no both see we gotta get all sides of here. You're playing the playing the game perfectly. So far we've got to get all sides of it Because again there's what will happen. So i was likely to happen. And what's in a perfect world of we were the matchmakers and we could take care of everyone properly. What would happen so a little less likely but yeah. I think there's a lot. I would hope there's all people entrances him fight Strictly morocco but And you mentioned like you said that the other thing about fighting someone outside the top ten would also apply to the man who lost calvin gasol. Now we're not gonna formal Go through for him. We'd like to stick with winners. He fought very well. But we like to just stick with winners for the sake of time. But i also would agree. Quiche kisha fight. Someone like zak. Cummings next if he's the assuming the of keeps around go outside the top ten right. That would be the logical. Yeah why move for him. Yeah if we're if we're not talking about schedule all things being equal he. He needs to step down in competition young. He's bought the top of the top. He is and been so close..

"'cause luke. Rocco made a huge mistake going into two. Oh five and get started out by yawn. And i forgot who has knocked them out but I think is a good pfeiffer firm him to come back on me. John strickland's riding a pretty damn good wayne streak and there's a lot of tension between these two so i really do look forward to seeing the matched up John stricklin. I knew he looked like somebody he definitely looks. Like the fucking lead soccer who again euro trip identical right true true. I could've got. Yeah and he is actually east crazy like that too. So that's cool. The and a lot of people were writing high on ihop coming into this fight. Because of what happened you know what his last fight. Even throw a single kicker or punch and yarrow his What's his name. Wiedeman wanted so bad. So he's out another surgery soon to his bones are healing healing. Well so they should just retirees that nothing else to prove. Yeah no he went on. I think you're honest. And you're i hall in his position. Now what is he. Seventeen to ten. Now he was previously. I viewed him as a gatekeeper. At one eighty five. But he's fought all the toughest guys i mean. We probably could continue the low gatekeeper role but when eighty five pretty damn tough division. There's nothing but fucking straight killers at the top and sean strickland has inserted his name into the top dogs. I mean luke rocco is gonna come back and try to steal shine. Possibly you know maybe compete for the title. Love to see luke against some of these top guys eighty five. We know Addison is the king of the jungle and until proven otherwise so really impressive. Sean strict with no even though it was whatever the five round fight that it was Halls is too tough. Bastard is easy to finish initial yup yup and man. He was taking those body shots. We took everything and he just kept going forward. Want dude like standing. Yeah he was. Busted up took a lot of damage That disproves the toughness of your hall and it'll be back up. Being i think dana white has that soft spot for hall and more than likely we'll be back competing for at least a couple more fights on giving his age. Who is fought. I mean there's still some good ups for him out there. My opinion without a doubt definitely is lost in a long time before this will be back. Yep yep yep the name is a name no matter what exactly. He's a name. He's everybody knows who. You're your holidays and You know he's going to do is just to look back at this fight figure out what went wrong and onto the next you know f. That's what happened. History nausea tarzan. That's to do that but This particular uc card. It ended perfectly in line for everybody to see what took place at ballatore last saturday. Where the star that i knew. Aj mckee wise at set times nine. We waited two years to see this. Fight playout goddamn it. My prediction was near dead. On i said. Aj mckee by head kick guys remember that the kick did finish him but it was just a technical submission and manage mckee is a monster million dollar choke unbelievable what a stage i mean didn't get much viewership as far as the you have c. Did but i definitely tuned in. And that's why into the car you ended just before. Aj mickey was walking. And once you heard the dr dre the nothing but a jiefang an throwing money guy had you knew something was bucking about the happen. Some crazy very impressed with the aj. Mickey he's the biggest star belt orbits saying it for a while now dude and then and bella Bella toward played it. Just right mack. Because i watching the card. And the ufc cartwright and while the main event was happening the combing event of bella truecard was going on right when it finished. They were milking the shit out of it to get to the main event so that we bassoon as the main event started. The card is like two or three minutes leaders win the or before when the gift card finished these guys here man. That's definitely care. made right there man. I bet i bet Scott coker said. Hey come on bone please. And speaking of that co main event shipman mad for now look sharp against the toughest shipman guys One tough bastard and he you to lead man yeah deaf guy to himself and i was just super impressed by ads. Were now just going in there. Knowing the game plan that he went in their wits said of talked about a post fight and You know just knowing manual. Santa's is competed for the title Nobody picked mad for now to win this fight but it was a great performance for him. He could find himself fighting for a title in twenty twenty two for at least five at least right. Yeah yeah for sure kaz yucky talking. Gonna be getting our guest on but jared Aj mckee what do you think is next for him. There next who else who else is left in his division testing. Yeah yeah there's nobody does nobody. It's come i'm curious. He's he did what he was supposed to do. I didn't think it'd be that quick but we made it look easy. You know louise next opponent can date. He's been through everybody I would assume they're not going to do Rematch that's thrown out. Really how belto roles quite cyborg. Well scott did say that. Didn't scott scott mentioned or somebody mentioned that they were not wanting to do a rematch. Bella tone ever really does rematch as like that I think it's pretty cool. You know unless that was super close. Yes this was not usually make usually make the fighters back. Go back to the drawing board and work your way up to get that title shot because i mean look what actually langley. So that's why. I'm saying mas- burnell aj Luck at all. Yup that would be. That'd be a fun. Scrap mean somebody's eventually gonna give bay. Jay mckee fight. I would love to see it. I thought it might have been pit bull But then again. Like i said my prediction. Like if you've watched agent mckee's entire career. Think the only time he's actually fought to decision was against the but the houses named jarrett you know he is and he didn't look bad in a dominated the fight. I can't think of his name koran. Pack around oh yeah. Yeah the only time i think. Aj has been to the judges but Man he's just a yeah he's battled towards biggest star and they gotta find somebody to fight him and i'm thinking maybe he might wanna fight before the year's end if not what a performance pit bulls been one of their top dogs for a while and langley bull manso pretty pretty amazing stuff and can't say i was surprised much like you guys would agree and say the same thing we got helling new kinda slanted.

Jim i don't know i don't know the answer i don't want to say yes. Is this the jim newsom was going to and he was trying to facetime of. What's that is. The jim newsom was that when he was trying to face time or something like that. It was his jim. That was the. Yeah jim that was his jim. That's exactly right like everybody. They're like the governor fuck in the biggest people in the nfl just knows everybody all the biggest silicon valley you know. Vc's fucking crazy people deal. Yeah it's just.

He's how long it's gonna last. Yeah especially modern-day segregation. I heard a guy say. I heard say that he was like well. Okay so if you don't get vaccinated but then you catch cova and then you go to the hospital my tax dollars pay for that too. So it's like it's a contentious subject. I don't know. I just know that all of us are going to have to get vaccinated. How about that. Or you're not gonna be able to participate. It's a little bit like fighting. We'll see we'll see. I think this is that. I think the stats yet. Like people are all up in arms. What everybody should just do is just look at the stats the meta data. If you got three and a half billion people took the vaccine where people the vaccine are are deaths down where they don't up. Apparently that's the case people say bullshit. That's i don't know. I'll just listen every time i hear somebody talk. It's not a scientist. I'm just gonna listen to scientist. Yes or no that'd be a different disease control Yeah i promise. I can find scientists to validate whichever argument. You have that the other day go. So what do you do well. Scientists are not immune to political pressure. And the other thing that they were talking about. Is that if you want to grant if you want your grant because you live and die by the amount of money that's given to you from the nih and accidents to health which voucher runs. Sometimes that can be like you. Don't wanna piss off the people that are going to give you a little. I don't know. I don't know i have no idea who knows. We don't know all. I know built for the cold.

"luke rocco" Discussed on You're Welcome! With Chael Sonnen

"What's happening guys happy. Efi friday l. Explain that later and thank you for joining another special episode of your welcome. The interim heavyweight title fight between derek lewis and surreal. Gone takes place tomorrow and later in the show i will give you my official prediction also coming up today. The ufc has signed a teammate. Of israel out of sonya's so mon biles made her return. And i've got an important question about conor mcgregor injury. That's all later but let's begin with some news that came out this week. Okay so apparently luke. Rock hall was offered sean strickland. We were dana. Told someone in the media this. I think it came out through a tweet luke. Rock called got asked about it and he confirmed. Here's what luke said. I think day and is trying harder than it has to be obviously just because of my outspokenness on different things. Rock told submission radio but this kid sean has been offered to me. So they're trying to do something. I haven't heard any dates or anything like that. But that is something they're interested in and yeah let's do it. I mean he doesn't help himself in any way shape or form with his style and his performance on the mike. They offered me sean. Actually a while back rock called said and i wasn't interested just because he's efi nobody and it wasn't the fight that i wanted. It didn't make any sense. No one knew of him. And i didn't give two fs about him and now it's like danish trying to piss me off with it and now he's obviously out there. He'd beat araya hall. He looked decent and he's got a ranking. So there's something to work with now i guess. They offered it to your riot. Your riot show stricklin instead of me. They offer the shemaya fight. Obviously that didn't come to be. I liked it. That was exciting. That kinda got me up. I don't know this is what we have and there were some other fights that kind of messed around with me so this is seemingly going to happen. They've just got to get a good date and somebody. That's ethene sexy and timely. I wanna fight. That's intriguing. I've done my thing. I've been champion of two different divisions. I've taken my time away. I've been through lots of surgeries. I want something that's gonna get me fired up. And i don't want to just keep following through and they're like. Hey sean strickland. I'm like who the f is. Sean strickland what the effort you talking about is that gonna make me a comeback. So i'm sure you better give me something better than that and nothing that i'm gonna come back for and month after month and it's just like they effing gave me a couple of other options and then those two options fell through and everyone's being h about it every obser- options so here we go. This is at all right guys. I'm done. I can't read or there is something about that response. That is compelling to look. Nobody wants to. Fight sean strickland. That's the truth that nobody wants to talk about. Nobody wants to fight luke rockholt. That's another truth. That nobody wants to talk about getting luke rachael the sean strickland together. Wonderful idea i'm all in. How are we going to build. A fight with sean. Strickland sassy question. How are you going to build. A fight with sean strickland. You wanna bring some attention to it at the same time. The guy doesn't leave you a lot of room to tease him. There isn't a blueprint for how to beat sean strict. He's looked pretty damn good. His record is pretty damn good. What do you do. I submit for you rock. Just did it. Just tell the truth and how you feel about it. He said i couldn't get up for it. I didn't know who the f. this kid was. Okay that's probably true. That is probably true. Sean was not known by anybody until recent period of time. Maybe even as early as a week ago when he fought riot hall. One of those things. I share my story with you guys when i met sean. He twenty one years old he was seventeen and king of the king champ. I didn't believe it. I didn't think i didn't think a twenty one year old could have seventeen fights. I was wrong. But i would go in the category of people that just didn't know who. And or what. A sean strickland is in imagine was to come out and deny this. That wanted have been good because plenty of people would and or are going to deny sean strickland but they would have done the typical use. It raked often people don't do. Is i think styles worn and all the ways to get out of a fight dealt with it rock off fight him said i wanted to fight shemaya of again no problem with any of it. I don't know who he is. I don't like his style. Let's go out and find. I'm just a for you. That's a good way to handle. The truth will set you free. Not everything has to be a show. Not everything has to be a static. Not everything has to be a yo mama joke sometimes. There's no jokes at all. I don't know who the guy was. Man he looks pretty damn good. Saw what he did your idea. Let's see if he can do it to me. I'm on board for that fight. I think the luke rocco scott a bad rap. I really have luke rock also former champion of the world. He matters his words matter his place within the sport matters. Kenny beat sean strict. There's only one way to find out that's between the two of them. But i do appreciate luke's efforts here. I look forward to hearing what shauna has to say in this fight gets made. I'm in loughran sean. Stricklin will fight. In november middleweight. The division ran by israel of sonya. And because you probably missed it. I wanna take a moment to tell you about one of the. Us's newest members who is teammate of sonya's city kickboxing kid named blood-diamond just got signed with the ufc. Welterweight let me ask you a question. How many fights is he had. You're getting cast. Of course you're gonna guess. I was asked the same question. My buddy ryan you want her on. My response was eleven throughout out. But okay somebody. You'll see welterweight. Levin fights on the regional seen guys had three. The guys had three fights. So what does that tell us. He's good at something right. he's good at something. There's only a couple of ways in with that view of fights fewest fights i've ever seen was bj penn who debuted in the ufc but that was also a different time in a different era. Pj pen was also a world champion jitsu which represented the first ever american to do so. Bj had some paper behind him. He had some people voucher but he debuted in the afc. cain velasquez. Got to the very quickly. I cannot recall how many fights but that was a simple fact of havi. Mendez told dana white. No one will fight this guy. No one will give him a fight. Then isn't it. Dan can get in fights. Timofey guide him in blood diamond. We're gonna call blood diamond right. He won't ever forget that. Name kid from africa world champion at something. I'm going to guess kickboxing. Oh why am i guessing kickboxing. I left out most report parts of the story. He's from city kickboxing. That's volkan jim. That's dan hookers jim. That's ziada is jim case. So they've got a level of clout city. Kickboxing has just that. I know of just that. I looked up that i know of seven guys in the afc blood diamonds number. That's that i know of. I think they're closer to eleven one time before guys on it..

"luke rocco" Discussed on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani

"There i want an exciting guy. Who's on a streak. Who's in the top ten. Who gets me out of bed and it's on a big card right now. We don't know if it's on a big hard. I mean you have to sixty eight pavers. Great we don't know what the world's gonna like. Msg is going to be the spot at this point with everything going on right now but there seems to be some differences of opinion to put it mildly between these two guys and now we have a little bit of a little bit of some some heat going on as the kids like to say so. Was this the fight you would have gone with. Like i know you had your pick on on onto the next one. Maybe a couple of days settled. Maybe heard my glorious answered that the journey i took you on and maybe your mind change. What are your thoughts on this matchmaking. Now that it's made by. I'll give you your flowers on our podcast. This sunday onto the next one every sunday in one But no i. I when when the point was made and some listeners rounded up as well i totally i totally understood it. It made a lot of sense Rock whole rock hold coming back right. Wanted to ranked guy. I think margaret was. I feel like strickland those like beyond that match up. But if i'm if i'm being from a name value standpoint rock whole still has is still a top five name. Even if he's i don't think it's a tough firefighter at one eighty five but he is well known there. There's a level of fame there that strickland would want to benefit from more. So there's a great clash of personalities. Here strickland's i think fancies himself sort of a down to earth. All i wanna do is fight. I want. I don't want to quote him but i would like to inflict some intense violence another human being in the cage. Two extreme point you guys can find the quote quotas very very nasty quote. So he he. He is a fighters fighter. I think that is at least or at least how he fuse himself. High positions themselves as opposed to a luke rock. Hold who i think we view we can all agree. A bit of a glory boy. He's got modeling contracts. He you know he's has this he's always had exuded this this thai school jock confidence that that i would say many of us You know can't can't relate to so there's a great oil and water messia personalities. They're so so. I love that aspect of it. I'm dreading the trash talk a little. I'm not gonna lie. I think the trash talk will just be bad Maybe bad in a funny way but just bad. But that's the matchmaker should worry about all the other aspects of of this matchup being says they've checked correctly so kudos kudos to everyone at the for and and to haul excuse strickland ruckle for getting this done spencer. The snot luke rocco versus darren. Till it's luke rock. Hold versus sean strickland. Was this the right piece of business in your is. It is a terrific stupid fight to me. it is as you said. You know the name brand guy. And in luke rock hold that can elevate sean strickland in terms of that casual audience. That still very much remembers moog. Rock hold still thinks of him. It still carries him in high regard. Despite the fact that when this fight takes place he will be thirty seven. He will be four years or five years removed from his last victory. Like it hasn't been good in if fight that everybody gets really excited for. He's been knocked out in in each of his last two fights in the second round. He hasn't fought in over two years by the time. This takes place. So it's one of those weird wants to me. That is ak said like a kind of feel sean strict. You sean. strickland is beyond this. There are other guys more active guys that make sense. But that's why it's perfect for him like you wanna give me a former champion. Who's coming off the sideline that has had a bunch of injury issues and has had some you know. Maybe the motivation. Isn't there kind of issues over these last couple of years and let me go out there and and put it on this guy to to vault myself really into that top five into that championship. Mix absolutely and for rock hold. It makes sense because as you said everything he mentioned to you of of what he's looking for strickland fits that bill and then we do have aac. It really is the prince of positivity the way he described each of those guys at and the things. They've said about each other. In the way they carry themselves was the most like disney spin version of that. Possibly sean strickland sociopath He is not a blue collar down home. I just wanna fight. He's a lunatic. He wants to live out in the wilderness. Have a truck of guns. Have no one come near him ever and if you do he wants the right to beat the ever loving hallowed view and as he said in his little you know. Hey luke rock hold. I hear you talking smack about me and i'm gonna smack. Yup look rock. Coldest smug i love luke rachael. I have a great relationship with luke rock old. He's a smug dude. That's just how carries himself. It's it's the high school senior star athlete on just absolutely to the highest volume possible like five years removed from graduating high school. And still coming back to tell you how awesome he is. And i get it. I love it. It's why it's why. I set off the top of this. This is a terrific terrible matchup. That i cannot wait for and i like this. Is that chaos ladder. Match up. That i am. I am looking forward to at the end of the year. Because whatever happens to build is going to be just disaster like so cringe-worthy in terms of what these two idiots say to each other. It's going to be amazing. Cannot wait it makes a lot of sense but all the sense of the world it is circled on my calendar already and i just get it to me now. I actually like. I thought for this fight. I thought the winner of your ira hall versus johnson. Who is going to was fighting for the luke rock hole championship like the winner is gonna fight. Luke made all the sense in the world. Because i just look at the racquet like whitaker kosta cannon air vittori brunson till gasoline all. Those guys are booked right now every single one of them. So you only have jack hermansson and you have luke rock hold it. Beating jack hermansson is fine. He's ranked number six. Gets you up. But in terms of how people view you luke rachael. Does the much bigger name. You get much more of a rub beating luke than you do jack hermansson and the eyes of most fans. So that's why. I like the match. That's why about it makes sense. And now you throw in the potential obama's on this big cars you know the going to stack but we'll see what happens. We're going to move mike. I've been so talked into this match up. I think it's because we've had some over the past couple years with all the rock hold various rock hold a comeback talks. We've we've we felt like we had the perfect match for a long time. It was like rock hold. Anthony smith is perfect. They don't like each other. It would have to be a light heavyweight. So maybe not great for luke but at the time we're like whatever that's just wanna cut wait anyway good good match from the comeback and then it was And it was luke rock hold and like wiedeman rematch people out little rock. Hold wiedeman rematch. Like okay that's always. That's always something people are going to be interested in and the time was that okay. Maybe that's a little better than the anti smith rematch. Back at one. Eighty five it's against the rematch of a championship fight. Unanswered questions would have been hadn't slipped but that never materialized either and looking back on now like okay for both guys. Maybe that wasn't the best match now. It feels like we have fallen into the perfect match up. The timing is just right so maybe it's good that luke didn't come back earlier And that this he you know he didn't know all along that's sean strickland was was the man who had to work his way up to this level And get despite. I'm not a believer in destiny or fate or any of that stuff mike but it does feel like this is of those three matchup that just mentioned this is the best one the best possible for the cold. And that's pretty exciting. I can't wait for our friend. Jessica crystal crews crystal guide to victory this fight. And i know as going to put her notifications on come to sixty five week could beat. Msg plans may be changing with new state guidelines. I'm sure you've seen it but we're gonna move to a state where there are very few guidelines we're gonna head to texas with question number three the point around number two ghost to.

"There's a kid who could be that. Yes if you're a kid you say you know what i want to get my son in wrestling. Maybe akerson in. Dc's restless school. He learned some of those things one day become. Ufc champion because it is held at that high esteem. if that becomes your champion that clip that quote that presser will be played from now into the indices rain. And they'll say you know what you don't have to be smart. You don't necessarily have to work on your skill. You can be barbaric your nature and become the top of this sport and we're trying to make it a sport. We can't have those type of things in our post fight pressures when really literally somebody actually could you know. That's that's crazy because the reality is when you become a professional Right i know we've seen it for as long as we come not a role model. I'm not this not. This reality is older responsibility to people that see his. Like i said sean. Strickland fought in front of a million people. It peaked at a million people on. Espn last week in watching him. Fight in probably coming away from that fight one. That guy's a warrior. Yes that guy has was like that. I was like this guy fighting spirit right. This guy is willing to go into the fire. In just what activity in his heart in desire he could push himself through against the guy that whole everybody thought was the more traditional skilled fighter and skilled fighter in more traditional martial artists and you talked about traditional martial arts. It's all about it's all about. Respect is so now you're telling me that the guy that says that he has no career path outside at all stings in that he wants to harm. Someone in the octagon qin succeeded a higher level than the guy that lives by the martial arts code. I will say this to sean. Strickland directly i will say this to him directly. Sean strickland. You gotta do better. You gotta do better as a guy that's been there. You hold the responsibility now to our sport sport that we all love for the kids that are watching you perform to hold yourself to a higher standard and you can do it because look at what you have done since you go up in weight classes so get together young man and make it right now. Guess what are see. When i talk about getting together. A godsend for showing strict right at change the conversation. We both know that when you're dealing in a bad cycle all you want is for the patient louis or page. Turn sean strict. he gotta fight announced. He's going into madison square garden in. Now what is going to be. The biggest grew as he takes on the former champion. My buddy rockall. This was gots infrastructure right to get this fight announce right now this is this is perfect for him and this is what happens though you know they say they say winning cures all right in him. Winning this fight got him a five step up in competition a step up in name a step up in venue a step up an opportunity because that's what winning. Ufc fights in the fashion. Nettie did against a person he wanted against. Get you and listen man. And this is the fan of fan boy a little bit right. And i'm sorry dc but when you know a dude has names like machida vitor bill for right. Michael bisbee. Chris wiedeman when those guys are on your record when you have fought against that level of competition that level of greatness in name. That's a big deal. And now if you're on strickland your another dude. That's going to be on that resume. Now this can be a win against the loughran code guy. Now you get to have an opportunity to have another presser and say you know what what i said. Last time i get it. But i've moved on and look at the way i fought tonight against who is truly to lease a fan like me. A legend of this game. You know what's crazy about it. Also is f- sean strickland. He gets a chance to go and make it right but he gets chance to go make on a bigger stage right. This fight card is turning out to be one of the biggest ones of the entire year in madison square. Garden would defy that already announced. Sean strickland can get past luke. Rock hold he truly has an opportunity to do a lot of things and correct a lot of things that he may have dealt with in the past but the reality is this. Luke rocco still difficult for anyone in the world. I know everybody talks about. He doesn't have a chin if you can hit him. You're going to knock him out. Hit he's not is gonna get gotta gotta hit it right. He's been away for a while he hasn't fawzi fought against job holders. But when you look back on the whole fight looks i bet two five gets not bad mehovic. Looks like how do you lose to a guy. That's not that good well. Time where it is now time reveals. All time has allowed for that loss to age beautifully. Absolute because young tanaka corey anderson. Who's doing his thing in bella tour yang out to knock dominic reyes president dont joint so close. Yang beats israel at a saga to show how valuable he is. So that loss has aged really well from rockall absolu- in those are the things that you want to see happen after you lose to a guy like yamba hobeish because that's a situation where it's like. Oh maybe your career is over but you think about the knockout power being able to knock out dominique ribs you say oh. This dude is different. Dominic reyes goes five rows with john jones and if you thought he wanted to fight absolutely now you're knocked out what it was it the second round so now but if you're lugarda code and you know this better than me. Dc you understand. Your back is against the wall. You understand how people are looking at you. You've been away from the sport as you said. And you hear. The question. Marks question marks. Is ken in holed up. Where you're fighting a guy and showing strictly whose whose volume guy not. Just put you to exactly. He's a volume die. So you feel you can devise a plan where you could use your skill user experience to get this win so he has to be excited about this match up to against do whose name is now. A ringing won't be honest with you. When i saw the araya hall. Sean strickland trailer. I got excited my son. Who's who's in mixed martial arts as much as me. He was so excited about the espn plus. He said you know what i like. The strictly guy. He's talking about violence now. He gets another chance to show us that you know. The thing about rocco stricter fight it got offered to him earlier. He told me about it. I doesn't get me excited. I want something that's going to get the juices flowing for former champion. But then now a week after he beats a right hall. That fight gets announced. Because now sean strickland become more valuable sean. Strickland's name has a little bit more mental more momentum and not look rockall can see himself state across the outcome from listen and that's huge dc. But you know you have the promo code now so some reason you get all the so i'll let you give a little holler or low. Shot out to our friends. Our friends over at keeps now guys. Two out of three men will experience some form of hair loss by the time. They're thirty five degrees not really keeps article..

"Were too busy weekend we had in. Mma this past weekend course. Saturday especially was just full of entertainments. I mean the ufc card vegas thirty-three it seemed like kept falling apart. We're losing fights day after day. Even on the day of the event we we lost one fight. We lost two fights then we got to fight back which never happens and we ended up getting very entertaining card. Capped up sean strickland's dominant decision. Win over your i hall in the main event in one hundred eighty five. I mean sean. Strickland time to start taking this man seriously. i'm not. I'm not ready to throw him into the title picture just yet. But he's getting there man he's he's a guy that's on the cost no doubt about. He's an entertaining. Fighter has headline word the quotes before and after fights and he's just kind of a madman. He's one of those unique fighters where you know exactly where he's going to go. You know exactly what he's gonna do but you can't stop it like no one has been able to stop it over his last five fights. It's just been a remarkable. Just run that. He's been on and his run middle aged just say nineteen and one hundred eighty five. Ponder these one five in a row four of those at one hundred eight hundred one hundred eighty five pounds. And he's off to the races. I would like to see him fight. Luke rachael next. I think that's a good name a good test. I think it does more for him than maybe a jack. Hermansson and jackson a fine fighter by luke has the bigger name. Think you'd get more of a rub fighting luke rockall in getting a win over luke rocco and you would a jacker manson. But we'll see. I'm excited to see what is next for sean stricken interested to see what happens with your hall. I know he posted that he's going to be back. I don't know man. He's in a tough spot right now if you just really enjoys fighting and getting into fights and making some money good on him unfortunately unless he just goes on this biz bing ask save the day kind of tour and get some of these fights steps in last minutes and get some big wins. I don't know. I think the championship door has as close for your.

It's confessed right. Yeah oh yeah yeah. Yes shows getting some traction now Do we have any of the things we're looking at. What are we looking up before we said yes. Diving boards breaking. Yeah too many tortillas. That's what it said. That's great description of the dogs. Just telling you what going to break room any jump okay. But that's like okay so this is just like pro like home diving board. That's probably not put together. That's what i would be telling people. Afterwards the thing was fucking put together right. don't give me shit so yeah. I mean look that check. She has You know she look. It's all right but look the reality. Is you know the pressure of being a high level athlete. That's what it is so no. That is what it is. Why that's why there's not much excuse watch Nba all. I think knows a little bit. I mean like the guy on the sixers. I mean this. The second star of the sixers lost the whole Lost the whole series for them got knocked out of the playoffs because he couldn't hit foul shots. Do you remember. Do you imagine that with like a basketball professional basketball player. He couldn't he three out of every ten. Okay you remembered. Nick anderson yet played for the orlando remember. What happened with him. He blew this dude. So this dude Was the shooting guard for the orlando magic really. Good orlando magic team. That shaquille o'neal hardaway. Yes little and he was excellent. He was like a twenty point a game guy. Excellent shooter excellent player and they go to the nba finals. And i think it was like a two point game or something like that and he gets fouled and he's going to the free throw line and he's there shooter so i think it was a one point game. Would've wanted and so tired. So he goes to the he goes to the free throw line misses. The first shot. Misses the second shot. Get a tip back grabs the ball gets fouled again and they're over the limits going back to the free throw line so everyone's like a we got it. 'cause four four misses all four misses the and the fourth is epic thing they lose the falcon game. They lose the series from being like a twenty point game guy to scoring like six points. Bench never recovered. Until i think he started seeing a sports psychologist and then like six years later started playing good again like it. It destroyed his confidence and he was just like couldn't come. Here became that missing the fourth step. It happens mostly. I think that was like boxing. That happened like once guy just gets exposed. I mean roy. Jones junior was the greatest boxer in the world to fights before he or the fight before he got knocked out. Well there's a physical the physical side of it where once you get When you get your lights turned off. They say it's easier to utilites turned off the civic way to like. It's like if you get when you get really devastatingly knocked out like it's just. I remember that would with chocolate. Shell like where it was just like. He had like an iron chin he just didn't care and then it was like it talked about this as well. You know because he got fucking he's had a couple of really bad knockouts and he's fighting luke rock old. You know what i'm saying like going in there and like sort of having like you know he's fucking with one on here. He's but he's he's fighting a guy who's already beat them beat him in devastating fashion. And it's like you have to like go and face that demon and you're making decisions based off of that you know once you get knocked out a few times you're like you don't wanna get knocked down again. You god damned did i. You know this is everything. That i've worked for the the pressure and then off but i don't wanna lose his thoughts but like the gymnasts is like she's fucking flipping off a thing and that's fine. That's a a certain amount of pressure but then imagine there's a guy who's like one of the toughest people in the world in your way class is literally the toughest fighter in the world. There's not another man that wake us. Who can beat that person. And you're going in. You're trying to challenge that guy. The stakes are so much fucking higher when it comes to fighting and the pressure is so much crazier. It's it's mind boggling. it's absolutely. The injury fears much scarier. Something like that. But i mean the pressure wise though especially for a child the pressure of the olympics for sure. Yeah i mean i i. We don't give a shit that much at all. But i mean like in the world of something like people really give a shit about the olympics. Yeah i'll tell you. I i watched luke rocco move around ruka. I mean he's he's a wild athlete like he just like y- watch i was. I was crazy him investing because they have like a little pissing contest. Going on 'cause thrown able to try to the same place but they They both ended up by grappling on the ground was pretty cool to watch like a little rematch so to say which would just grappling. He had to say fucking around and but yeah that's fucking the u. of c. level guys the the difference between what they can do in the way they move. It's like it's like half people folded to like pressure in yemen may come out and there's just like they fuck i mean. I'm sure folding to that kind like the big stage. Or whatever member oliver mccall. Dave member. Oliver mccall the boxer when he like just started crying in the corner. Yeah nelson yeah. They were trying to get him up. I mean there's there's a debate about it like it was a real controversial thing. Stephen a smith said it about Surani when he fought a connor. But then everyone was given stephen a smith but then surani kinda said a similar thing and he was like. Yeah i just kind of choked like like he really just kind of like it. Was this big fight. And he really didn't like show up. I mean i don't know. I don't know if it was like a mental thing or not. But he kind of said it was.

"luke rocco" Discussed on Skip and Shannon: Undisputed

"This is the hardest. Give the reason why you do this. If nobody who you can quit doing it did this out of necessity. How you know what bad i think growing up. You know what the only thing. I ever want to be an nba fighter. Really if i got choices to make a make the frame counter money doing something else. I'm not choosing that. Get that level of money immediately. So abi concludes. He'll still sell. And i think you believe that. Because i know that he has still sell yes. If a year from now they announce connor. portia four. The some people will buy this you or will buy yes. I'll buy it you'll buy you could argue. We have to buy because comment right. But but i love. I love him as an entertainer because he's he's entertaining a performer in sports. That i've ever seen but all of a sudden what was so entertaining became just disturbing in repulsive after the fi. I think he's crossed the line. Remember before the pour unified the second one. January connor was on his best. Behavior is like a new man had grown up and he had nothing but nice things to say about poor and then here we go again. Yeah i agree with could be. I don't see how you kick the same anderson silver broken leg kicking chris. Wideman i think luke rocco just broke his leg wiedeman. How how do you. How do you kick the same knowing man. And i didn't even really kick him back har in. It snapped like a tweet. I'm not using that leg anything but welcome bit if require me. You do anything i can nobody with that. You got that kind of money for what you first of all your you have any volve. You wanna mention of fighter. So that's working against you. You gotta have layoff again you. That one day conor mcgregor will look back at his career and regret that he box floyd at that point here because i'm not so sure that he would have had the money to invest in proper twelve. He wouldn't have so go. That's the beginning of the end because to your point that's going to accelerate your exit from the sport. That's okay that's fine but it also accelerated my wealth. It also accelerated generational wealth that my kids are going to be able to enjoy. Because that's what i mean. Why why you do this if it's not to make money and secure your family for an extended period of time. Why the hell are you doing. Okay unless you just love to compete compete. Play cards cashew dive as you day within. I gotta get kicked in my face to compete. You will not play table tennis. I should be going to the right now that you didn't know that you called me the final table tennis. I was grateful that they really are you for real right now. Yeah you about me. The bama state at savannah. It'll stay long time. We played we had a table. Who will taper tennis shoe. Pooping pinball machines only table tater but now joke joke. I wanna see shed delivered. I'll bring go miller table. Did you have a phone pal. I had no skip by. They have the right handed out on people beating those offensive. Linemen office lama better than you thanksgiving into. Scale the i that was easy mazzi. We're gonna get to the cowboys in just a second. But first shohei otani will be the showman of the all star game. The angels sensation will be starting on the mound. And we'll lead leadoff for the american league squad as they battled the national league at seven pm eastern tonight on. Fox's shannon is he going to revolutionize believe nominally scale. Not because i think the thing is the team will force you to choose any going to be a pitcher. You got hundred mile fastball. You're gonna pay. You're not going to be hitting stimulating stance when you went out position player than you have to come to the bat you know. Come to the plate here or interview great at hitting and batting in control places. Play the position. You're going to have to g. Probably going to have to choose. But i think he was a very unique situation and i think him being a foreign player he said the only way. I'm coming in that you'll allow me to do both. And so they were caught between a rock and a hard place because somebody if angel didn't do it someone else was going to allow him to do it and he's shown because you pitch every day and he's a. Da hit play basically every day. You know how much would that zapped him. And so. But i don't think you go to see all the sudden these guys popping up wanting to be shohei ohtani unbelievable skip the mere fact that like he's the mere fact that we're missing him babe. Ruth killed you. Just how special this young man He has power freakish that we have long time. You're talking about for a japanese more player. He's already the single season leader and with the midway point. Yeah dickey mess lewis regular face a decade thirty one thirty two and he's already at thirty three so but i think there's a little nominally i don't think we're gonna see a rising up sprayed guys saying you know what i want to bat and i want to pitch in the major leagues. I don't believe that's going to happen. Okay i believe it should not be under nominally. Did you play high school baseball. Don't remember okay. So i did. I was pretty good. I made all area after my senior year. But what i always saw in my years in high school baseball was the pitchers we faced were often the best hitters that we have to get out because they were the athletes on the field. They chose to throw because they had the best arm but they also had an many times the most power. So that's not an anomaly. Right and then. When i went to vanderbilt we won the sec. All four years. I was there but our archrival was university of tennessee in the best hitter in the. Sec does four years. i was a kid named rick. Honeycutt was also one of the best pitchers. Yeah so he goes on to. The big leagues makes two all star teams in the e h champ in nineteen eighty-three because he could really pitch as dodgers. Tha rangers for a year. But he became the dodgers pitching coach for many years up through two thousand nineteen. But my point is key. He could have done this. He wasn't up what you call a power hitter but man he could hit for average right. He was sec batting jam senior year. So my point is when you get to the big leagues are thinking is so prehistorian. They say you have to choose in japan at eighteen. He decided to play baseball in japan for a few years right away. They're more open minded and they're like okay. We don't have these conventional wisdom you know that we've dug in on it and they said sure because because he's a big he's almost six four and he has natural gifted power and he can throw one hundred miles an hour. Why not but it on in. Mlb they think. No you're going to shortchange yourself one way or the other. What happened to babe ruth. He was great for the boston. Red sox and then when he got traded the yankees. They're like you got to stop this well one year as the best pitcher in baseball and then he became the best hitter of all time up to that point right. Because the yankee said no our box office says we need you to hit the ball out of art correct. Which is what he did. I'm just hoping the floodgates reopen for a lot of kids out there who at the high school level are dominating as hitters and pitchers. And i don't know why they can't keep on keep giving if you think about it. Think about football. The best athletes used to play office quarterback db or they were something they got play. It'd be able to choose one defense. Thanks with the. dr could play both. I like you know what the we really need you. All the other side of the ball. We'll give you reverse it. You pay us. But i think that's going to be the case you look at tampa skewed. That'll be the pitcher pants datings and used to be pinterest. Two hundred fifty hundred and.

"Thin air it paid benefits for for be suber and he no. He became a champion. That's why there's a level Ever heard the joke sea level. Cain or cain you know. I think that's the joke is see. The will cain has the most amazing cardio basically and The one on sea level is it kind of he just completely disappeared Like not not an interview to easing hand. Think i'd actually do good against this guy. Anything like that. He did his little pro wrestling thing and then he just completed. I don't know that he really loved mixed martial arts. I think for him. It was the job. Yeah i mean. God who was just got thumped. Slow i bet you that was. Just let me see. It's still got it. Any gone in gets watson. I think he like i thought i ain't got it. You know he had shoulder. Problems knows what other injuries guide. But i think what happened to was the gym. Kinda ran its course. I'm sure aka have some good fighters but the all planets lined up that time where they had contenders infringe cost. Second swick and welsh Dowels always fun. Because it's those three alone. I should fight each other. We don't wanna fight. You know in trying to get a piece of gsp in all of them coming up short swift number. Got to him but still You had that had the rise. Luke rocco who became a strikeforce annual. See middle aged. Did he see you. Strike force and you'll see champ and came alaska's who at that time was basically the ufc All of having at one time you could show up and work with your best buddies. You know that was fun. But then cain start getting. These injuries swing open agenda in thailand. Contract left the gym a little bit older. He moved the biggest for a little while they started to go on a little bit of different directions. Habib brought a little bit of back for them or whatever. But yeah i mean they. I don't know i guess for canaan was injuries. Answer that question and then you just wonder if jim's got a second wave or what's going to happen but habib retired. I think a little bit early earlier than they anticipated. And i think it was gonna be like dc passing baton on hubby even That you know that was short lived so knows man with with an what he's up to or whatever but hopefully it was able to make money while he was here. I think i think he did pretty well for himself. But hey really quick just for people who are listen to our show via podcast. I know you guys always hear us talk about sports. Caster how you could see the video feed on sportscaster. Things have changed a little bit. Sports caster has merged and become a different company called panda. And so what's happening now. If you're wondering how come. I can't find your show on sports caster anymore. What's happening now. Is that same company They've created a system. Where now if you want to see the video portion of our show you would go to a junkie dot com and you would look at the the radio preview and in there you'll find the video The video podcasts. for him. And it's pretty cool because those of you who have Done the watch alongs with us. It's basically the same thing you know. You'll have better. Mgm odds there that you can look at. There's a chat room. there's twitter so Able to Kind of enjoy our our show the way you would a sports caster watch along a bit so if you guys are wondering where all that went you can now go in there and chat every day. There's really cool chat room so Yeah i would definitely do that. All right Long night on. Saturday we have you'll see on. Espn twenty five headlined by the korean zombie versus dan so any thoughts on while courtship dots. Give me your thoughts on that. Main event goes of chan sung jong vs. danny this is a pivotal fight for guys in the featherweight division. I'm not saying it's the number one contender fight but lever wins is in a really good spot in terms of being within that group of five fighters you got Data that set alloway has got to be next as long as he's around. He's probably ought to be next especially for more wins because he's got to win overtaken but because he's onto Ascii and Setback cove it. And then they put us coaches of the season holloway. Wanted to d which by the way if you haven't heard he's now out of his fight. Receiver rodriguez but if holiday one you. He protects that and so who comes after hallway. That's what we're we're trying to get to here could beaten hallway. That would have been tremendous for him because he wouldn't jokes that ladder even dude even though he's been actively position. But that's one of these two guys can knock on that door as well Billion that next way. And that's why this is really important. So it's sort of a one contender fucking but it's a really really important fight but because of the depth at featherweight if you lose this can be eighteen months to two years setback. What that means is he probably got about two or three months so that we can say we just said about you right now say it all over again the winner this like copying a spot to win a title or to compete for a time but you gotta go out and win two or three fight so big big.

UFC Fight Night: Derrick Lewis demolishes Curtis Blaydes

"Let's go right into this thing. Let us discuss the heavyweight division in the ufc because it was on full display last week. It'll be on display this weekend as well and next month with the title on the line but let's focus on ufc vegas nineteen and derek lewis's incredible ferocious and absolutely vicious knockout of curtis blades. In the main event after a really strong opening round from curtis blades lewis delivers one of the nastiest knockout. You will ever see in the second round coming through with the biggest main event upset in the. Us's michael bisbee became. The ufc middleweight champion. A you have c. One ninety nine knocking out. Luke rocco network going to begin with you kind sir. Nice and easy your reaction to a massive win for derek lewis less than a week ago surprise. Surprise i guess is where i would start out. I picked curtis blades. I thought he would be able to at least take down. Derek lewis enough to win the fight and lo and behold. He didn't take him down at all. So that was probably actually the biggest surprise about the fight What wasn't surprising. That derek lewis after being down in the first round after losing that second round blades was doing really well on the feet. And then derek lewis just did what they're glues does. Big are uppercut. Is the fight so relatively shocking shocking result in the sense that derek one. I was fairly confident that blades. Who get it done. But not so not so surprising that derek lewis got another highlight reel nocco assay. We kind of got your instant reaction after the fight on saturday on the post by now you've talked about on the side but now they've had some time to let it all sink in and spoken about it on on different platforms. How big was this win. For derek lewis in the in the grand scheme of things that heavyweight. I mean anytime you win in the top five especially when the heavyweight title is only is within less than a month of your big victory. It's a big thing. I just think. Derek lewis is one of those fighters that he said it himself like the title is great but he's fighting for that paycheck. You got the bonus. You got bulbs paychecks. He's back taxes. Which is obviously still reeling from the massive blizzard. So i'm sure he's going to do great things with that. We saw what he did when the hurricane happened. Driving around saving people so For a normal fighter getting this big win on a big platform so close to not just the title fight probably another a contender fight with jazzy. No rose straight and cyril gone. They're going to be like. Oh this is great for my career. I'm looking at it from the perspective of derek. Lewis wear awesome. I got both of my paychecks and fifty thousand dollars more so yeah massive night for the black beast again. Prize fighters derek lewis through to be one of the most reliable prize fighters on the ufc roster. So yeah ten attempt forms across the board from the heavyweight contender to sort of build upon that jose. Is it time to look at derek. Lewis is not just a fun prizefighter but a serious threat to the title. It's not like he wasn't before but people always view. Derek is this you know fun. Follow on social media this hilarious guy this quote machine who can land knock on at any point of a fight as watch the sport at all outside of his fight weeks doesn't really care about titles but it seems like he's putting together now i know he's added some pieces to his team. You saw lauren. Murphy's husband joe in his corner who's excellent jujitsu coach in practitioner. His own right time to stop looking. Derek lewis as the funny guy with the with the best social media. Game outside of darren taylor. Moore is a legit threat to st bay francis and gado john jones. Whoever is in this division. I would say derek lewis has already the best twitter follow third. Darren tools jason lewis at this point. Because derek lewis is winning fighting and being funny darren till is only doing one of those things. So i i would say derek lows. Of course you have been taken seriously if he touches your jaw you have to take him seriously because you're probably not going to remember when after the referee pulls him off of you so i don't know the answer to this because we haven't seen we don't know we don't know that's like saying oh francis in who is putting together all of these this team to make him a complete fire. All of his fights are like less than two minutes long. So we just don't know for all we know. Derek lewis is the best gogo planet practitioner. It all of the ufc. We're just never going to see it because at the second touches you you die. So if you fight someone like steep bay That is obviously a master game. Planner i think that's better. That's that'll be a better gauge of derek. lewis skills. because we've seen him fight dan mccormick. Who is the definition of a complete mixed martial arts and that wasn't a great night for derek lewis. Yes he took that on like Real short notice to only a month after he got that beatdown he did win. Let's not forget volkov. Put it on their clothes until again. Derek lewis touched his jaw and killed a man on live television. So yeah i don't know. Tb all say. I know that's a cop out. But i don't think anyone knows i think everyone will agree with.
