"Base that they think they can and it's it's like bro nextel miserably. Yeah it's dumb. Do just like jake paul. In their first event they probably wouldn't even made it this far but he left the show time so it's dumbed whatever do whatever if they make deaf deaf jammed the video game come to real life. I'm all in this video. But as far as holyfield and vcr belfort jesus man like meet or belfer went in there for the kill like he was fighting for the bell against luke rock hole. You know but But yeah at least let the fight you know go maybe round or two. May we seen only feel like flashes and moving around like for the old school hardcore fans but he just went in there brought it to the gills. You just heard it the or no. I think the most the most rack. This event was the conclusion the post fight interview and everything that happen there. That's when it was just it. Capped off the shit show. That was veto yelling. Screaming for jake paul and i guess like what the owners of chiller in that calling for the fight jumping there yelling shit show to detour. He he challenged jake. Paul for thirty mil and the challenge challenges bonello for forty million. I think either forty or fifty million saw even ask forty million to do. The fight really wouldn't be trailer card for sure. It would be either showtime or t. gb promotions cannella promotions. It will be one of those. Promotions may even be able to cope Produce this event if it does ever happen So there's there's a lot of a lot of things that's happening in the boxing that we never thought that would happen. And it's just a circus. That's all it is total twilight zone. Like i've been saying and i mean it just keeps happening. I mean they're gonna keep losing money. And i mean. I don't know why people like dana white's take on the whole thing was probably the most Hilarious take The dana white's had in a while. You guys heard it and like if you were fucking stupid enough to buy the pay per view and just completely shitting on chiller like he has been you know. He's keeping a close eye on it because he knew kito. You know us. Happy to see tito get knocked out but i. I don't know the royd detour boxing era. We're gonna continue to talk about it. I mean it's gonna be interesting to see who they match them up with..

"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.

You know here's in years past when you in wrestling. I mean listen we gotta be honest like it was not you know the reason why so. Many wrestlers end up graduating going onto things like in is because wrestling didn't really have a way to provide you with the living.

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 rock" 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.

"Four of those since returning spencer to eighty five. Just book the big fight. It will touch on that in moment but spencer. What did you think sean. Churkin's performance impress. Were you with what he put together over those twenty five minutes. I mean pretty impressed like this is clearly the biggest one of his career. It's kind of a similar performance to what we've seen from him since coming back where it's just that kind of marauding style coming forward sticking the doubt in people's faces and just kind of wearing them out with volume and and a gas tank that he's one of those guys that he doesn't put a a wild on you but it's just so consistent you never really get the chance to catch your breath. There's no breaks and so to me. It's it's a tremendous performance. You said four straight since coming back from the injury and moving back to middleweight shouts brennan fitzgerald for getting that out there early in the broadcast that he started his career at middleweight. My my sticking point that i loved to point it was. It was the kind of wind he needed to get over this stuff. We talked about last week of great. He beat kristoff yacht. Co like your ryan hall and and he said going in your rioters. a gatekeeper. didn't mean it detrimentally. I use the term. A lot. Because i don't i don't look at it with that negative connotation that a lot of people do it just means. You're you're where you are and there's absolutely nothing wrong with being the ninth best. Middleweight in the ufc. For a number of years. I mean to really damn good. And there's a lot of dudes that would like to trade places with you. And sean stricklin showed that he's a little bit ahead of that. He's a little bit better than that. How far better how much better how far he can go. That's kind of the fun part of this right now is just seeing kenny. Do those same things where it's not e- doesn't show necessarily the power to get you out of there. He's not coming with anything. Fancy or flashy. That's gonna like catch you off guard and get you out of there to hurry. But he's also finished brennan allen during this run and so how far can you take this and and we're going to get to find out here later on this year when he when he has that fight with luke rock. Hold which maybe doesn't tell us anything we'll get to that but this this performance last weekend was exactly what he needed. An an impressive to me aka. What did you think like. Did you walk away from vegas thirty three thinking you know. What that sean. Strickland loud fella. Who likes to talk in his fights and say crazy things. This is a legit title contender. They're watching right now. Do you feel like like. I feel like with kevin. Harlan huges winning fights personality shown and people ready to throw him into a title fight like at the end of the year. If you beat schalke thrown into a title fight. Get them right in there with busy do you. Do you have any sort of the same feeling which sean strickland with this run. That he's on right now after. Getting five straight wins. I'm pretty. I think i'm on record and on most of our shows that we've talked about sean. Strickland has an expensive appreciate this. That i was very much On the strickland bandwagon as hall banned by the way at barry hall bandwagon. By the way it was probably why i was so invested in this main event More i against. I think i didn't like people saying this is like a throwaway main events i understood. I understood the criticism. The car during your i still. It turned out to be a really good card. I didn't think on paper was a great card. But the main event i always thought wasn't intriguing event. I didn't understand people saying well. Neither of these guys are ever going to designate. If i if you write off all wins. He continues the best streak of his Stretches your career and absolutely could have contended and strickland wins than he's the real deal again on the prints positively i was. I was just kind of looking at it. You know how could it benefit both guys So yeah. I was not come sunday morning. I wasn't like wow. I can't believe everyone's talking about sean strickland now. I'm like i'm like no. This is the logical outcome especially given his performance. Which again. I think i picked hall. I thought hall had was the stage of his career. Where he's kind of like matured and he could he could Wouldn't fall some of the pitfalls that he's that he's gone into before and it wasn't a case he got he got beat by a better fighter I hope you're hall. I kind of i kind of flippantly tweeted something like you know. Well i've i've. I've been fooled again by the era hall. You know a story but again. That's that's just sort of like saying we've had expectations for him for so long. I think he needs anyone to tell him. But i think when he looks back in his career he's had a very good career. I'm and i hope. I hope he doesn't become the sort of cautionary tale like your house. Someone who has never quite like good enough to to make it to the titles. That's a lot of fighters that's a lot of fighters who spent a wish they could be that successful but focusing on strickland's i'm telling people do not count this guy out as someone who could not only compete for the title like. I think this is recently bias. I think you could really give someone like israel tucson. You're really good fight. I really do. There's there shades. i think. I'm not the first person to make this comparison. There's shades of michael spinks michael being for the longest time got criticized. Oh he's he's a volume guy. He doesn't have that one punch knockout power. He wanted us to see title. He what is he telling. He was a contender for a long time. We'll we'll strickland. Follow that pat. I don't know he's got the mouth as well. He's kind of trash on the building. Sb certainly not afraid of the microphone. So my my big takeaway is if anyone was sleeping on strong strickland before. I don't know why you would be now if especially if you watch that fight and not just saw the result. If you actually watch that fight you should say. This guy has the potential to be a top five Middleweight by the end of the year. So less than a week. After this victory ak sean strickland already has his new opponent. He will face former middleweight. Champion luke recalled in november at usc to sixty eighth fight has been verbally. Agreed to and this fits. If you watch my interview with rock hold from a few weeks ago. This fits essentially all the criteria that rock cold wanted to check off on the old clipboard..

"I'm no expert at keeping my hair as though you still got ways but the target audience i gotta read the case. Oh dc we. We talked a little bit awesome. Strickland your hall off fight night card but another huge story was cheyenne is after her win. Over gloria apollo. Which i open right we. We looked at it and it was okay. This is this is a career defining win but it was more so about what she said after the fight then what she did during. I've been so broke my whole life because of the sport but it's so worth it to me. 'cause i love this sport but to get a fifty thousand dollar paycheck. You know my husband's gonna tell me to put it away. I'm definitely gonna wanna buy some nice stuff. But you know i i like i like the little things for the house and from animals. I really like to spoil but this week. I'm definitely taking my team to go get a nice dinner so it's going to it's life changing for sure but i just got to put the money away. Just go out there and fight again. You know shy and by has a lot of financial difficulties and she was very transparent about that. But as you said. Rc life changing performance. But the money can be life changing also as she took home her first performance of the night bonus but honestly man distrustful of becoming a mixed martial arts is not lost on me because i dealt with a lot of time early in my career. Also these see you had a quote from two thousand fifteen. And i want to read it back to you. We had nothing selena. And i had nothing. We had a seven hundred square foot apartment in san jose california one bedroom and we had no money and my family has no money down in louisiana. We were on welfare. We call my parents. And they don't have much but my mom my dad and my brothers and my sister in law they pulled together whatever they had five hundred and seventy five dollars and they sent it to selena to to hear a story like that c coming from football which is different. It's almost like when you make it. You at least have something. How common is shy. Amb bhai story. And how common is your story for people who fight in the ufc or who will mix martial artists. You know honesty it. It's it's it's very common you know because there is no signing bonus right there's no signing bonus to start fighting these martial arts. She said that hard to live this dream and she's been broke a lot trying to live this dream but i think that when you look at how difficult it is and fight sports because this is not just mixed martial art make no mistake about it. This is not just the you have see. This is across the board in boxing. When you're trying to make your whip unless you're on the libyan that came home with a medal. There are no big contracts. Yes andre ward made money immediately the octave walter made money immediately but there were a number of other guys on that olympic team. That didn't make money immediately. They fought for little money to start. But i truly believe that if you go back as far as even rocky movies rocky living in a small apartment trying to be living in the gym before before you got too big for his britches. Clever lane beat him. Oh come on. Man woman with labrador did every at the big house. I think we all the little. We got a big time. That's why martin hagemann said hard to be motivated when you sleep and all sat rate marvin hagler but it feels like it's the story of the journey and you hope that cheyenne buys with this. Money can now start to focus more on a career. We've seen that right so it's common we've seen people come into the ufc fight. Make some money get a bonus and goal now. I can quit my job right. So it's it's it's very common especially early will what you don't hear very often is established people in the octagon in bela tor in boxing. Saying no same types of well. I think it's part of the journey. And i believe for football players for players and other sports. That's that's what high school is like. Oh that's what college is like when you're living off of of stipends and so there's not necessarily a minor lead to mixed martial arts whereas people can see you going through the ranks and understand that you know are right now. You're going to be a little broke but when you and let's let's keep it honest when you do see a young lady and she saying these type of things you like man. I wish it was better for her. Not really thinking to yourself. This is what the journey is. This is the start. But that's why when we look at the pictures of you. Even we were showing new quotes with the two belts on your shoulders and the small. While you're facing the joy in your eyes is because you can look back to where that journey started and say you know what look how far i've come look we've come through and now you say i've made it and you can honestly go and tell people that i can go buys. I can go tell every single athlete that you see go through that brighter days as you see right now with that bonus in honesty when you go through that and i told us to my guys constantly. The cow crutch. Moore's nick piccinini jacoby smith doron win all the guys that are starting that are under my wing. I tell them embraced his journey. Time at one point when we're involved cooks house. I live there. Cain velasquez davis lived there. Luke rock hold live that. We're all living all champions right. So bob's house has made so many champions. But you gotta go through the journey. You have to go through the journey in order to get to where you want to get in appreciate everything that you ultimately have at your fingertips when it's all said and done but.

"Ever seen particularly as it comes to sport but the more that you do at the better that you get the more you read the faster you get it. Reading more books should go through better. You get a comprehension. Betty gets spelling phonetics better. You get with logistics. I understand the entire at linguistics. I understand the whole thing. This sport is unique. That you don't get better each time you do it. You get worse you will leave a piece of yourself out there each time if you see somebody with a hundred fights that's not good. You should not compliment that person. That's weird. That's a very strange thing to do. And they usually don't have a whole lot left. And i see it in sports all the time i come from amateur essen but i've seen it in our sport. There was a guy named brandon agam. He's now the head coach of the university of minnesota. He was an alternate for the world championships. Behind kale sanderson brandon. Egg did not prepare for the world championships. Pair pair to compete heated up. Study the competition not get as weight under control. He wasn't even going to be there. Because an alternate kale sanderson at the eleventh hour pulls out adam gets on an airplane. Enters makes it all the way to the finals. There's something to being fresh. And i give you those examples until i'm blue in the face. We've even seen it in. Emma mail a great example. That of michael bisbee. This was not prepared to fight for world championship with luke rock. All he gets called on short notice. He accepts he steps. He wasn't panicked. He was fresh. And even luke was prepared and luke knew what he was going into in. Luke knew that that date was looming. And luke was getting his cardio on and his weight on point he was so focused it was called paralysis by analysis was loose. He was fresh. Not just as body but his mind he goes there and beats them. Those examples never run out. We saw a week ago. With the olympic games when simone biles pulls out in the alternate steps in just by example. But i'll never get these will never run out of the person who's got a clear head stepping in and stealing the show and i'm really just trying to share something with you but experience any other field that would lend an observer to believe you're going to have something closer to excellence in this sport. It's just not true. You leave something of yourself out there. That chambers only got so many and once you fire them you're done and i studied athletes my entire life and they a little speak to you just as a coach i think this is the parent in me. Why will have better philosophize and try to think about okay. What does it. i've learned in this life. What does it. I've learned this journey. That i can take from then hand to my son and i will tell you all of the greats of my life. The guys i really looked up to. I'm talking about the. They were undefeated at high school or they were undefeated in college or they won world or olympic titles very early. They all have one thing in common. Which is they're all retired by the time. They're twenty seven they just don't have anything left and they want a whole bunch. They want a lifetime of awards. Might be the deal that you wanna take but either way they were out whether it was mentally or physically there body broken down they only have so much to give. They give all in a condensed area. I mean i'm talking all of them. Track and field stars basketball stars. Baseball stars wrestlers boxers. Right they were all done at twenty seven years old. They didn't have anything left. So when you look at surreal gong. You've got the right to your opinion. Now you're sharing your opinion opposite of the people that actually put money down to back their opinion because they're betting on surreal to win. I'm only sharing with you. The to be the fresh guy or to to have a lack of experience tends to be a very positive thing within sport. It's one of the problems that the commission's run to her sanctioning. Some of these events is they want like records but like records is very deceiving to like skills and this whole belt system by the way you guys know where it came from. Find this very interesting. You've heard of a black belt. You've heard of a white belt. And you got all the belts in between everybody used to wear the key to practise taekwondo. karate jujitsu. Didn't matter what you're disciplined was. They all wore the gita practice and they were all white and these were all white right there made from the same place and printed often sold at the same store and they're made out of cotton. Okay great they're they're white. Well you could walk into gyms and you could see whoever had the darker belt. That belt got dark. Because of the grime and dirt and the sweat of jim of a lifetime of the belt. How many times you washed it over time. It stained a little bit. All of our closed do that. We can relate to that. Would you could walk into a martial arts gym you kind of look around. And whoever had the darker belt meant that he had done it more times. Many got more grime and more dirt and more sweat on that belt. The people that had the cleaner crisper white belt and almost to a man to a day you can look at it and whoever had the darker belt many had more experience met that he was better. And it would be true actually. They came up with the black belt versus the white belt. Which would be on your first day and everything in between so generally in life. I'm well aware that true. I'm just sharing with you. Just reminding you. The.

"Breakout night officially for the brand new ballatore featherweight champion the new millionaire. Aj mckee after. His first round submission win over patricia. Pit bull but we are here to put the matchmaker hats back on to discuss. The what's next the fallout of ufc. Vegas thirty three. I am i. Thank you for checking out the show and joining me as always is the co host. The cold matchmaker the principal my best friend and yours future grammy award winner. Mr alex kelly. Hello my best friend to kind to kind. What a treat. It was to be a combat sports fan. I just last night. I think in the last couple of weeks we've been spoiled. We've been spoiled with some great. Ufc cards agree belt or car. It became fc usual. Weirdness that you can find on on twitter acrobat. Underscore hitman twitter account. You anything something strange. It's a great time to be a fan and this was a. I'll realize that. This was one of those saturdays. Where i think as as someone who works in the field there was some dread as far as like how much there was to cover and of course overlooking issue of if card but the way the networked everything. I feel like went by so quickly. The pacing the card was amazing As opposed to build tour which was a little more. Try now but again. It's showtime they're doing. This blake more of a boxing style. Show which i understand but yet you'll see so quick entertaining belt or was great. Got the result. They a great time to be a fan great to be involved in industry. Yeah worked out perfect like the like yes. Make a great point because like the afc event when quick by the time. Sean strickland beat your hall. People got to tune into the coleman event of the ballot or car which is amazing on to the air soga and then agent mckee shining moment. So i mean like you said if you are combat sports fan you are spoiled to no end I think it's pretty obvious for. Ag mckee goes from there. I know we have the listeners who've weighed in on the ballot or card. So we'll discuss that a little bit later on but we're going to focus between you and i as we typically do on what happened inside the octagon last night and let us begin with sean strickland. Who is just a madman aka. This guy is not just a madman in the octagon. He's a madman in the gym. He's a madman sitting in his car. Cutting promos on social media. And he's even more of a madman at his post fight. Press conferences following main event victories. I mean the things this guy had to say just unbelievable but he is on a tear now one hundred eighty five pounds dominate hall for twenty five minutes on saturday. He just kept going. He kept pouring it on. The fifth round was actually his best round. According to the numbers he's won five in a row. He's four no since moving back up to one hundred eighty five pounds. Nineteen zero as a middleweight. And he's going to be a top ten fighter probably top seven or eight come tuesday once the new. Ufc rankings. come out. But it'll be interesting to see where he ends up in the most important rankings may may fighting global rankings. But where does mr struggling go from matchmaking perspective after another impressive performance this time in a headline spot yeah as you mentioned the goal rankings number. Thirteen a heading into saturday. Your house number ten. So he's definitely at least take his spot he's definitely jumping the top ten maybe higher. Maybe hired me. I was very conservative with higher rank. Them again to see how that shakes out Later this week. Twenty four and three overall commission in nineteen as a middle as impressive but the even his losses and got a at one seventy twenty four and three. And it's not like i mean you just watch him. He's such an entertaining fighter to this isn't a guy who's like grinding out winds on the regional seen like he's really really pushes the he plays. This tastes that. A lot of one eighty-five hundred just can't keep it so exciting. You said there was too obvious. Names one of them. I know for sure and i think i know the other one but i think but i think mike. I went in another direction from either of those names. I don't wanna see him get The winner of the jared cannon near calvin gasoline flight on august twenty first few weeks definitely gessler definitely gasoline beats kenan near make. Sense invite strickland. That's pretty Pretty obvious tenant it'd be a little bit shakey of kenya got the win. I'm sure there'd be some people campaigning for him to fight the to get a title shot. He has a very strong resume. One eighty five. But i think he's still be one win away and i'd like i'd love to see. Imagine with him a strictly and used to be a great fight so so i went a little conditional here. I don't think i went with the consensus. I know the listeners had a lot of other options but yeah for me either cana near gasoline. I think it'd be good. Good match. Strictly next sean. Strickland is really difficult to match make for because he trains like thirty nine different gyms. So he's any pairs up with like most names that we're going to mention here. I want to see him fight. Luke cold i know they probably trained together at rukh Sean trains all over the place. But lucas a name luke. Quanson interesting fights come back to schantz interesting fight for shore. He's a difficult fight. Luke wants difficult fights. He wants top ten guy. Sean will definitely be a top ten guy. Come tuesday and i think this one makes sense for both guys. That's kind of a caveat. Just because of what i said earlier if if it can happen if they're not like best friends like you and i are aka. This is the fight but if for some reason they are best friends and they made a pact to like never fight each other and they signed a piece of paper and blood or something. Bennett shack hermansson. I liked the Way more there's more sizzle than there is with the hermansson fight in terms of name recognition. Luke's obviously a former champion. I think luke rock hold is the best opportunity for him with what is actually available to him right now because i don't think he's canadair in gasoline is interesting. I like him. Gas omer buddies. It's very possible that they are. I think we've we ran into this before Of strickland's gonna wanna wait that long. I think strickland's going want to stay active and keep this train going and i think rock holds pretty much ready to go. Rock hold at this point is ready to take a short notice. Fight just to get in there and entangled one of these top ten guys so yeah. I'd like to see the rockefeller. If not her manson's fine rock hold would have been such a great call out That's the one thing. Strickland won't do oddly enough. He'll he'll say almost anything he won't call anybody out. He has no interest in that part of the plane that political part of Matchmaking in the afc. We're just find. I i i respect it to a certain degree but i think that would have been the perfect call to make After winning your first you've see main events he he's still recognizable name. You guys were.

"But here's the question ak so i've had some pretty interesting conversations this week one of which was with former. Ufc middleweight champion. Luke rock hold. Who is looking to get back inside. The octagon and we had a nice conversation we laughed. We smiled but then we talk about his fighting career and this man is frustrated because he hasn't been able to not only book a fight but book a fight with somebody that even interests him. He's looking for a top ten guy or he's looking for something exciting and bays. Gimme something that's gonna get me out of bed or just let me go. I'm not just taking any fight. So ak if you're the ufc if you are the middleweight matchmaker right now. What is your plan of action to get luke rock old in there with the right opponents that makes everybody happy will attempt to do some problem solving on the show this week with the knock around. Try to help everybody so one minute on the clock. What do we do with luke rockall. That makes everybody happy. Your time starts now. Well my. I don't think there's anything that's gonna make everybody happy and it really two things really suck. I would loved to see another part with jacket. I sousa along with motion. I would love another fighter. Chris wideman chris. Boardman is obviously recovering from injury. So i think the way to go. Is i still think of him. Go up to two. Oh five and i would hope. It's still possible for him to fight anthony smith. I don't maybe the heat from this has gone. But but i haven't given up in that matchup. I think i ever gave up on it. The talk so much crap at each other. There's just something about the personalities that i feel like our oil and water. I don't know if it's where they come from. I don't know is how they were brought up. I just really believe those are two guys if you put them in a room there are just gonna hate each other. They're going to be professional to fight. Night but i think they would. Legit hate each other as lincoln setting style match up. I think it's a. I mean i would favor anthony smith pretty heavily. But i think if you asked. I think casual betting side. I think you'd get a lot of people who believe loophole could win that match up. So i'm not giving up anti semitic. I think that's the way to go all right spencer over to you my friend same question. How do we get luke rock. Hold the right fight. What is the right fight. How do we do it. In a way where looks happy. The opponents happy fans are happy the ufc etc. Everybody's happy one minute on the clock. Your time starts now two words. Darren till we always talk about this guy still being a title contender. He is absolutely going to talk about john. He's got a bunch of people that are interested in him. he's going to come out there and throw shots he's gonna stand in the pocket and trade with luke rock old. And that's i think what luke rockwood watts is a guy that's going to put him right back in the mix. That's what he said darren tells. Hide of in limbo right now. He fell out of another fight. We're not sure where he's out what he's doing. I've been seen some pictures of super puffy phase there until on on area. Hawaii's twitter timeline lately. Gimme that fight. Gimme these dudes just talkin junk in each other for a couple of weeks building up to a co main event spot or even a main event squad on a fight carver get. Potentially five rounds winner gets into that middleweight title. Conversation which is where both want to be. And it's something that doesn't take away from guys that are actually competing lately on their way up. And lastly i always have to show casey's mustache it's just phenomenal. Wow smart play smart play. He's watched the show. Casey he knows that you gotta you gotta plant the seeds gotta gotta talk about the baddest ashen.

"Let's say low to the former. Ufc middleweight champion. Luke rock kind enough to join us. He's part of something pretty cool as far as ways to engage with fans. I believe he even helped. Put some fans in position to to win some money this past saturday. Ufc to sixty four. We'll get that information right now. With mr luke rock hold himself lucar you man good to see you good to see you too well working hard for the no one. No dance partner. Oaks the here all right. Well we'll get into that in a moment but it is great to have you here first off yourself. I know daniel as is involved with this as well as well in the afc teaming up with versus game you're hosting variety of games. I think you may have been doing something during ufc to sixty four is that true and if so what did you do. What is the role that you have in this versus gaming interesting platform. It's got a lot of great people behind it and it's just fun. It's like you give people an opportunity to be right about something. It's you know it's Get it's basically just creating a platform creating different games with engaged. Not just like the fight itself but like you know just fun stuff. In between an outside of fights. It can go any romney sport as cool. It's low interactive way for the fans. The play make some money and have some fun with it and everybody likes to be right and they can get paid and being right. So that's like double edged sword right there and i know like fantasy sports and betting on fights come massive over the last few years and it's growing more and more now on the anime. What like specifically if you can maybe thrown an example or two makes this different like what sort of makes the stick out compared to some of those other sites and makes this more exciting rather than just say. Here's twenty bucks to throw on this fighter to win this fight. I i'd say just the variety. And i think it's it's basically off people. You you liking your spec you wanna play their games. So it's like you know if you wanna play off my platform. I'm gonna create different games of fun few to interactively play with not just some bookie setting the tone and not setting the odds against you. I mean we're setting the odds for you rather than something nods against you play you play. The house played this this gambling game. The odds are always set in their favor. This is why it's interesting because it's just it's just we're we're giving you an opportunity to be right and there's no odds that are stacked against anyway shape or form it's just gonna be you know. Clear straight up opportunity to make your money and have fun of to. The option seemed to be endless and of course all eyes were on dust. Emporia and conor mcgregor this past saturday. The main event the trilogy fight at least it was supposed to be the final chapter between these two guys. Did you watch the fi. Did you watch to sixty four. And if so what what did you think of the whole thing. Yeah did i give give that my bet was the over-under on three rounds Assumed i can't give my exact opinion. But i was. I was assuming it'd be go girl that so like it did I mean no one can predict a frigging connor breaking his ankle. I'm not even sure where it snaps not to angle. They said it was a clean break of his tibia. Tibial right above. Yeah yeah. I mean it was. I was surprised at connor. Would like you know ways that maybe maybe he jumped off the team because he was already like hurt his leg before him and so if something's wrong way went to twin to that angle but in a dustin came in wrestled and then put on his back and In he's gotta learn how to get up so that's the game but you never know he can come back and reset but he didn't and his ankle broke the tibia broken as the fight game. Man people you can't predict anything like that happens as it was just kind of a brutal thing to watch and you know the the. There's all these different angles. I know coach eric. Nikolic put out a video. He said that his mom texted him at seven o'clock monday morning and said hey eric i think i think i know how connor broke his leg like he threw a kick when he got back to speed in the final seconds of the first round and poor a blocked with his elbow and then he stepped back after. They both missed punches. And that's when the ankle broke so it just so weird because we don't really know but there's all these different examples where it could have happened. So i got from that. I think i mean there's no way is is braise. Tibia breaks just from the elbow kick. I saw will blurb of it but obviously it was checked hard and it was ready to go and then it broke through. I mean it's kind of like why i held back on. Mike kicks my first kick with you. Remember fractionally and so my leg was cracked. I knew it was compromised. And i had to work around it. I tried to. i couldn't kick more Knew i knew. I was being affected. My leg was falling apart. I loaned me. I knew something was wrong. But yeah i dunno. I kept trying to kick a little bit. But obviously something happened before with acknowledging that. And i think he checked him really hard. I think it was fractured in the new. Just that that a kick the little thing just put of the top. While i have you here like can i just get your take on the aftermath of the whole situation because there's two sides of the fence there's people who feel like connor was out of line with the things that he's been saying. Then there's like ronda rousey came out and said you know conners. He's being brilliant. He's planting the seeds for the fourth fight. Like he's heard and he breaks his leg but he's on the ground already planting seeds for the next fight. What did you think of the aftermath. The post fight stuff all the comments so forth and so on.

Hashtag ali does but rights unless it's for a title and then he said diamond man versus olive man. Evan rodriguez to poor versus. Do great scrap winner gets ranked beheaded versus santiago. Puns and abo. Yes like that one's zuma gula for suggest molina that makes sense after the call them out right he called he called the molina and then he said the guy who fought a chinese guy in his ufc debut. So it's got to be jeff presumably jeopardy eric o'malley versus jack shore ak amount of deserves fight ranks. But i just like making fun matchups in this one. sure is. That's a really interesting fire right there. So sorry mike. Mike mike speak for what was what was that. O'malley versus jack shore. Oh wow again probably to. not you know. Well known enough romantic. But yeah i know yeah fun match in stylistically not one. That is aesthetically pleasing for one. Shot o'malley max griffin versus. Tim means each around. Three five streak speaks a lot of sense. Oh we have a check the tapes from evan. I got her laskey. Felipe back when our lasky feature there you go okay all right so ever may heads osa Brennan union or that. Was evan rodriguez. Evan rodriguez and may head swelled up our man aussie underscore data underscore bloke robbie ryan who wished us good afternoon to the podcast kings. Oh hello you have see to sixty four is done. So as conor mcgregor on listened to wow. I didn't even see. This is michelle ahead of versus tony. Ferguson he'd look. I is not a small lightweight. I get it and i know we've been talking about him going up to welterweight for awhile. Panetta's huge he. He looked so much. Bigger than tony. ferguson. I i don't know i feel about that. Yeah i mean it would just be wild i it just the mere thought of that makes me think but yeah versus taking a lot of damage like i know people think peres technical but hannah can can really mess people up like i know. He's become more technical and he hasn't had a knock on his last couple of fights. It's not for lack of trying. He is really. It's super super hard He also likes o'malley versus frankie edgar greg hardy versus some nobody on a fight. Pass undercard Fight mcnugget mate. Three and then he said Drake a suplicy is a problem at one. Eighty five so. I would agree. Our friend. francesco are big fan from italy. he's only gone. Prelims ak griffin versus you by five partying hard getting ready for the world cup. You know he had to go to bed early. You'll get ready for the world cup. He's also smart euro cup. Excuse me that's. I'm sorry i'm such a such a soccer guy. He's also smart because He knows that chances are when his gets read priority. Use a lot of his a lot of the picks Macro versus james krause To poor ya versus danny gay. Yep do plessey versus cummings jennifer my versus andrea lee brats avars versus luke. Rock obe. i like that one Zoom google i molina one and then a price versus daulby fund fight. Oh and carol comes through match me. Very one jerome rivera. Then he used a picture of a pair of scissors That's just being poor jerome rivera. He is getting cut by the way. I that's the reality of it He likes to vice versa. The winner of kevin han versus kyle dacas Even did all the losers offers amis my versus calderwood iverson jillian robertson do placebo versus either kristof jaakko or edmund shabazz ian. Giles buckley to poor caceres hall. Pineda ahead Saleh coffees with you on that one. Price moreno griffin chaos williams is fun Carlos condit vs. Mike perrier k. Come up on previous shows. I have no interest in that whatsoever. But i feel like this come up quite a few times Sean o'malley versus rob font. Makino cantona's aldana durant kusnits. Kyw avila to a vasa harris. Hearty lynn's burns edwards thompson. Mazda doll which i actually don't mind that fight either And then kind of the obvious. Ones mcgregor d. As a charles oliveira what else we got. I'll try to rival through these real quick. Some of you guys like just you drop in matchups wanted a time. I don't do that are they. Are they doing this in your dm's or the after every fight they'll still shoot an idea which is listen. Dude you do. I prefer if you do just like one. Also it's easier. Zuma offers assume dare g loves them off. Love where i like to see that After that great submission win He also chris. This is christian. Lead by the way pronounced bow branch of ours might have the best takedown defense and wanted to five virus. Versity gasoline cananea losers. What he would like to see. Do diplomacy versus eric enders Connor versus whoever comes out of the most hyped hype out of a hypothetical gates versus chandler fight. I would love to mcgregor in case she still. It's such a money fight. I just don't feel like we're so far from it right now. I would agree Matt ravelli want to pour versus danny gay or the loser of chicago versus barboza max griffin put out a hell performance i think max griffin versus miguel by asia would fight that he would like to see but that's not a bad one Jack porter two of us versus blah goi ivanov makino versus no mogomedov.

"Com luke. Rock cold is a former world. Champion doesn't appear that he complained. So how's mature. Mile is one of the top guys. Finding one seventy and this week. There's a couple other guys at one. Seventy that are worth talking about Wonderboy thompson bless his heart. He really he is such a sweet guy. I mean if fighters had ratings like movies wonderboy wouldn't even be pg. Gee this guy is such a wonderful guy. He looks at the business very different other people. And that's why say as a sweet guy revert. The expression. Nice guys finish last. We'll sure you can imagine in cage fighting. The expression is on steroids right expressions. True in life in general it's injected straight in the ass like it was jailed son in two thousand seven. I mean i'm just. I'm just telling you right now. Here's what he did okay. Let's back up. Do you remember the night that us men beat burns burns and wonderboy put out a tweet and this is off the top of my head. I have not seen this since the night. It came out. But i have a feeling if you go back in the time line i get your ninety nine to one hundred percent there and he said i am the only guy in the top five who has not fought osmond yet period so i guess i'm next period congrats on the performance champ exclamation point and it was just such a sweet. It was such a sincere. He wanted to congratulate kamara one. He wanted everyone to in his logic. Is it that bad. The top five does talk about the top ten all the time but you can break the top down to the top five. He was the only guy in the top five who had not been given the opportunity. His logic wasn't bad. So i guess i'm next i can live with the whole thing. I don't know if i ever remembered it. I don't know that i'd be talking to you about it. If he left out the one syllable to letter word of so. So i guess i next. That's what made it a g. rated statement. I'm next we're gonna totally different conversation knowing again. The top five. That hasn't fought him yet. I'm next good job tonight. Champ totally different. He put the word so in there. That's what a nice guy would say so. I guess i'm next but hold that thought because wonderboy came out today and he was giving some nice kind advice as you would expect to get from wonderboy to nate d. s. and the advice was nature. Go down to one hundred and fifty five pounds. Hold the thought. Why now wonder why would be able to answer that. If he was here right now he would be able to answer that he would support the notion that nature go to one fifty five by looking at the rankings looking at the potential matchups looking at the path that could get me quickest to a championship. I don't accept any of those goal setting one on one. Whatever your goal is that is a dream that is largely a fantasy. That is your ultimate wish. That's realistic right. Not not not. I wake up on mars tomorrow. A real realistic attainable thing. But it is your dream. Then what do you do. You set a whole bunch of little goals to get there. You want to be the world champion. Start at the bottom. Get into a practice room. Get into an environment teammates. Fine coaches show up every day. Get a little extra work going to set your alarm clock a half hour early for school. And you're you're going to get two miles while the rest of the kids are sleeping. I do you see where this goes. You're going to get noticed you're going to get signed. How are you going to do that because you're going to get media you're going to build your social reputation. You have all of these little goals. What nate does so. Well is the little goals k. If you want to be the world champion that's appear you gotta get signed. You gotta work hard. You gotta get attention but everything in this. Sport is a competition everything in if you try to go right to the finals. Which is i'm gonna get a championship match. And i'm gonna beat that guy more rounds and he'd beats me best to five. You're never gonna get there if you show up to a press conference. You have to be ready to compete. You should be keeping track. That guy's got two questions. I've got none yet. He's up to two none. You have to compete for everything. I can remember being at press conference. I generally don't have that problem. I don't say that china wills. Most of the questions came to me. But i wasn't one one time we're saint-pierre was up. There on the same desk is the greatest of all time. He's feeling a lot of questions. I pulled out my phone. I started texting. People in the audience. Asked me this asked me this. Ask until those questions came. But we're competing. You'd think i just cheated but okay fine i did. I don't think it's a cheat. You think i could live with it. I didn't lose. Because i was competing. Then you start looking at pay per view you start looking at live audience you start looking at placement on the card you start looking at rankings. You start looking at. Who's getting the most headline who selling the most t shirts all of these things matter. All of them they all go in line with. Who's going to get the world opportunity. Vince mcmahon will gauge. Who's gonna headline wrestlemainia on. Who sold the most merchandise that year. Did you guys know that. The headline act of wrestlemainia which is guaranteed a million dollars. Guaranteed you can make more than that you if you headline mania you're getting a million dollar bonus it's known within the business and it's been true for over two decades. Whoever sold the most dolls and t shirts and video games and posters whatever merchandise wwf. whoever sold the most. Vince identifies as the most popular in puts in the main event of his biggest show of the year. So all these shales. I'm sharing with you as somebody who is observed more beyond just the punches and kicks what it takes to get there you have to achieve those little goals. You have to get yourself to the press conference again. I'll just personalize it. But a time where. I wasn't getting invited to the press conferences. I figured out whose role that was to decide. Who's coming in both the plane tickets. And i started lighting them up. I started sending him text messages. I want to be up. There deserved to be up there. You give me two minutes on the microphone. I'll make belt drop and they shit was female. Finally a good of the press conference just quit texting me brought me at every single press conference for the rest of my career sex. But that's a little goal and you have to observe that starts somewhere. What nate diaz is a master of is the small stuff natives. Not looking to be champion.

Breaking news out of the world to the USC USC to thirty four tonight in Melbourne Australia on pay per view, Robert Wood. It covers coming gasping for the middleweight title cancelled that flight has been canceled because Robert Whitaker is going under the knife. In a matter of moments in Australia for a hernia certainly wish him the best. I'm curious Ali is Kelvin going to get paid. How's this gonna work because you just went through a training camp? What's the deal? I'm certain UFC has told you what they're gonna do. Can you? Tell us. Yeah. Always come through for me, you know. And he said he was going to kick out. You know, I understand you know, he went to a camp. And and you put a lot of money into it investment. A lot of money into it. And at the end of the day. This is. You know, I'm not worried about him. I know he will be paid. Thanks for doing this Ali very sorry about the news our best to to Kelvin as well. Speak for everyone. Everyone is bummed out about this. We're looking forward to it. I appreciate you coming on for a few minutes. He will take care. He was. And I have no doubt in my mind. Dana white and you'll see them because they're taking care of my guys sounds good. Thank you Ellie. Let's go back to the phone lines. Now talk to more fans. Breaking news again Robert Whitaker out of tonight's made event. Ernie a- surgery scheduled for Madame moments from now in Melbourne devastating news, not only for the UFC. But for Robert Whitaker who continues to get all these freaking bad breaks time. And again, he had shingles. Prior to the last time that they were in Melbourne with him headlining that card was supposed to be against Luke rock hold now. Just hours before the event he has to pull out and is going under the knife Joseph Detroit. How are you? Good. How about you area? I'm doing okay. Good. I just got a few questions for you that I think they should let the winner of tonight. And Calvin fight for the official title Whitaker should be stripped. It's just my opinion. Well, I wanna see how long he's out for this is definitely a bad break. But I typically like to subscribe to the rule that if you don't defend your title or you're not scheduled to fight within a year. Then you should be stripped in this case he last fought in June. So let's see how far he's out. Let's see how long he's out for. I should say let's see how long of a recovery this is needed. And then let's talk about stripping in. But I think right now, it's a little premature to talk about stripping. Because he pulled out last year knee injury. I think it's better for him. You don't have to take some time off. But my second question is not question opinion. True. They're gonna make McGregor verse Copley for the I think it should be Tony Emporia for the interim. Yeah, that's Donald Surani just talking right now from what I'm hearing the interim belt isn't being discussed. I don't think a belt is needed for that kind of fight. I don't think a belt elevates that kind of fight certainly not an interim title. So at this juncture, I think that's just cowboy talking and look he's going to get the fight. It seems like that's the front runner. I don't think you need to push for an interim thing anyone wants it, quite frankly, I think the interim belt would would almost like soil that that fight. I don't think anyone wants to see an interim belt online. I don't think either guys should be fighting for an interim belt when you have guys like Tony dust emporium ally. Doing what they've done as of late. Let's go back to the phone lines and say Hello to Corey in California, Corey how are you? Hey, I'm good. How you doing? I'm doing. Okay. Some some disappointing news, but we still have a car tonight. But yeah, it's it's a bummer. These things happen from time to time in in mixed martial arts and. I mean, this is a big one especially because it's the Australian who's now out of the card. Yeah. Honestly, like you said before man, I don't know how these injuries happened the day of the fight. How much are you actually doing? Such a serious injury. But I don't know it's fight game. And it happens. But. So my original copies I called about it. Now trying to shake up. I was gonna say do you think that Anderson is? His own legacy a little bit by taking these bigger fights with the much younger guys are like the fights with whatever, obviously, they're bigger fights. And he's a big name. And do you think that you have tarnished by throwing them into a fight with Israel, just because if Anderson, but then it turns around and now Anderson is card having a big name for Israel to fight. So do you think that enersen should lay off he's bigger fights? Or do you think he's finer you think his legacy Jenner hurt in the end after all this look if we're talking about tarnishing legacies? The only thing that's maybe tarnished his legacy. So to speak is the fact that he was caught with PD's twice other than that. I mean, I don't think opponents will tarnish anyone's like seeing fact to meet on the elevates your legacy because you're finding the toughest guys even as you're in your swansong so to speak. I like the fact that he's taken this fight. Everyone thought it was a mistake. It's an opponent that he thinks he could beat he's fourteen years older. He feels like maybe he's not as experiences him. Maybe he hasn't fought the kind of competition that he's. So I don't think this is. I mean, imagine he pulls it off great story George Foreman. It's like Randy tour all over again. So I honestly don't think that he's tarnishing his legacy on this one. Let's go to one quick call before we take another break Hamilton, Ohio. What's up man areas? A pleasure speaking with you. I want to go back to the UC days, or so I started hearing your voice. Boy that was handled by the UFC. I am so proud that you've come to where you had with the hard work. You've done to put yourself in today's position. Thank you know, as far as what's happening transplanted melborn sad. And that's the core. So the nature of the game. My question to you is at forty three year old is now put himself in position we he's probably going to be having to save this card. I understand that. There's not a lot of four weeks on your old man at his weight. They can do anything except maybe defend themselves. Does he really have a chance to see wing? And do you see this only in the heavyweight World War forty yours can compete one or two times? This gentleman is not tarnishing his world. It just a building him being allowed to do this because of his name and his past of fighting really realistically can this man really compete at this level with this young kid. I mean that remains to be seen. I don't think it's a bad matchup firm. In fact, I'd say he's too big of an underdog. I'm curious to see if he can turn back the clock tonight. But yeah, it's a great call to great point. The best news is this flight hasn't been canceled. So we're about to find out in a matter of moments in a matter of hours, whether or not Anderson Silva can hang with Israel to Sonya after the break. We're going to be joined by my colleague, my partner shell son. And he's in Melbourne. I want to get his take on things. He knows coming gasoline almost better than anyone. He was the one who drafted him on the ultimate fighter way. Back when devastating news Robert Whittaker's out of tonight's UFC two thirty four main event. And I just got details about how it all went down. I'll tell you about all that and more right after the break. You're listening to Hawaii's may show right here on ESPN radio and ESPN app this
