"Was because with the man was obsessed about hockey that's all he did he ate drank sleep hockey it's not because he cheated because he was an unbelievable talent one of the best skaters ever and probably the best hockey player of all time these guys did cheat Larry Bird didn't cheat Larry Bird was probably not only the best trash talker in the history of the NBA but Larry Bird also was a killer on the court he was all that mattered to Larry Bird in his playing days especially in the eighties was winning basketball games winning all you care about is winning he was obsessed with winning I don't think Barry Bonds obsessed with winning he was obsessed with himself he was obsessed with hitting he was obsessed with hitting home runs I don't think he truly cared how many championships he won he truly cared how many balls hit out of the park same thing with Sammy Sosa and mark Maguire people say they they the they save Major League Baseball after the strike while they're cheaters they cheated to hit balls out of the park that year and and years prior no doubt so no I don't think Barry Bonds should be ever in the same category as some of the other best ever play the game the ones that didn't cheat and going back to this scandal I'm gonna tell you right now they need to Major League Baseball needs to do a serious investigation on some of these players like out too vague because they'll be able to find out I believe if they really want to know the truth I'm not sure of Major League Baseball wants to know the truth because all too there is such a beloved guy you know and and one of the best probably the best you know hit one of the best hitters in baseball do they really want evidence to come forward to show that al to van braked and some of these other guys were wearing electronic devices just like Major League Baseball didn't want the steroid stuff to come out I think they're full of crap I don't think they want to stuff to come out I don't wow how on earth if you are Major League Baseball how on earth do you allow this stuff to happen to not know anything about it how can a team keep this quiet for the entire year and by the way I don't buy the fact that it was only last year I can tell you that I they were probably doing this for several years Cora all these guys they probably were involved with this for a long period of time don't you tell me right now that all to say do you know deserves to be the MVP don't you tell me that now when you have an advantage like that were you know not only the type of pitcher gonna be getting but what part of the plate it's going to be on the location and you're a professional Major League Baseball player for Christ's sake there's a lot of college shooters that could probably get some hits and and and and perform if they know where a a major league pitchers throwing the ball and what kind of picture gonna get no wonder while to be hit a metal part in fact I'm surprised ultimatum it more out of the park in that series or any series in the playoffs it's a joke and it's a show for everyone to say that all too they should be punished at all for this and I believe one hundred percent that he was wearing one of these devices I believe there are other players on the Astros are wearing these devices as well so this is this is indefensible in my opinion Major League Baseball you better do your job you better find out what happened here the store is not going away no and I think they will do their job I think that in again there's there's no guaranteed evidence but there there's definitely some there's some evidence that points to it looks like this is probably the case they should lose their championship in two thousand seventeen like I said and how to be an Bregman anybody warring those buzzer should be banned from baseball for life I agree we are when it comes to politics we deserve it comes to sports I would stay up we usually agree on just about everything right speaking of sports coming up next Marc Ratner vice president of regulatory affairs for the UFC talking McGregor coming up next right here on the Vegas take a road is just a road but at G.

"You but is he like at some point. He's he's dirty he's he's dirty so he's just like Oh what are you talking about like it's you know I gotta go to the brakes. That's how it was taught. Well guess what this is. Sport streetfight streetfight going breaks. There's a sport if it breaks because he didn't tap it and yell out screaming we stop the fight. Okay breaks but if he says stopped and you gotTA stop. What is your problem? He just he just will not stop so he's dangerous he's the him himself he's also dangerous opponents but see any any realized that I'm fucking up my career by like Sonata. Because he kept doing it kept noon it three times after once you learn at least three. Yeah you know what I'm saying like one time get caught okay. That's stopped doing to stop having the cage. Stop Game No not stop. You've figured out like stop doing it. Pick pick picking up a range. You keep doing it okay can are we got a problem. Isn't issue. Joan John Jones Spin accused in the past the fingers. You know not accuse we've seen Komo knuckle deep guys eyeball. We have John Jones rule. That's how the row you come out when we in backstage. Hey when you come out you cannot have your fingers thing is extended towards your opponent's face. I don't care extended towards lags crotch or away from him above him around him once your fingers extended towards his face and he'd be an fest or to the ceiling that is offensive and defensive. So remember if you keep your fingers to the ceiling and a guy charges you and you try to take a back step automatically human natural ability the way that our body mechanics work that fingers drop down to his is if he runs into your fingers he caused himself to run into your fingers. It is on you. I'm taking a point. Wh what you mean. It's on him. I told you fist or fingers the ceiling. Your fingers are now straight out. That's how he ran into him. Run into them going straight out. You poked him in the eye on you. I'm telling you I make it a festive time. Super Easy it's not that difficult that is legitimate and the John Jones role. That's how John McCarthy came over that specifically to counter jump and people in the eye Altan yeah and John Asks for him not when John or Jones asked for McCarthy not to be as rough a couple of times when he was when he was reverend for him and he's like a day. It's totally fine. John was like doc toy fine. He doesn't want him to rescue them. It's up to the commission. The commission is like yeah. We kind of we Kinda want McCarthy on the on the John Jones right and so do it anyway. Now to bigger refs FIZZ. Like you know. I'm trying to think of some of the bigger fs when McCarthy was revenue. God God is a guy like like are they assign it our refs assigned like like who would that my fictional and Gano Derek Lewis Fi. So I it's funny. They're not gonNA have used to be that kind of way. You don't want John. McCarthy Ref one hundred twenty five hundred so it looks weird so yeah you put some sense into that like do you want do you want a damage roughing joint. You want your sick at one fifteen carlos far as it does it does look a little weird to have that bigger in there but the reverend has gotten so much better. If you've noticed oldest go go back and look like five years ago and you would see the refs all the time all the time now the rest are Kinda hit. You don't really see us anymore. Couple of things as have happened. One the the directors trucks have gotten better camera angles and keeping the rough side of the way but to always kind of got the Mark Ratner speech whether we got directly from mark. We got it from from third party or Fourth Party. We all Marc Ratner thing and the deal is the referee is not part of the fucking show. We're not part the fight. We have nothing. We're not part of it. We stay the fuck out of the way until we got a call a foul that time. Let's call a step. Otherwise stay the hell out of the way is a lot of guys that will angle themselves the purposely beyond camera in other jurisdictions and I. It still happens and I see it when I watch these fights and other fight fan so I watch right shoulder blades. You see no takes legitimately trying to get on camera. That is what you're doing. You're you're not there for any other reason. Other than being on camera in between being on camera is legit. A quarter step is that a full step is going to be out of position anymore. It's a quarter step quarter step back out of the way and the Never GonNa see the Nagorno you there. That's how we should react is that you shouldn't be in away so it's changed quite a bit about about how the visual aspect goes a referee's but you also know that when you see the rough getting they're getting close either tencent crackers gone off. He's about ready to call time or he saw something coming towards a foul. He knows the fighters get ready to get to a foul. Like if I see on the ground or rolling him and Jake starting to roll around and and I know two other times he's already blown a guys neon blue another guy's ankle out already know this. I am right on top of them. Screw camera angles. I'm not worried about camera anymore. I'm worried about fighter safety. He's getting a lock on on. I'm getting there. I'm getting a tight and I'm getting a close. My hands are getting over. I know it's coming there. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA get right on a moment of Jake yells out the moment fighters to stop. Start Peeling stuff right there. And that's just how you get in the way but you always want to be out of the way and not be a part of it. But yeah if you're if you're roughing these big ass these big ass fighters and it looks weird because a louder with these little strong leads. That might look weird. But you don't really see Dan so it's not that big of a problem anymore. It's really not that big of an issue. I read heavyweights time. And I'm I'm I'm five foot ten in two thousand ten pounds. That's what I am strong. Motherfucker what they also they also know that. I have a com- a commanding performance. When I'm in there was one of the things I really do? Pride myself on there. I stay away. I don't say much I don't do much when I need to. It's important and I get it across the fighters I'm doing something important so it looks like Oh you're super strong big push those big heavyweights. It's often not really the kind of gave up Kinda stopped. They stopped because he knew I was coming in. They knew Toma Stop and they stopped and I was able to push resisting. That's why I'm so strong it's not because Doing also too. I'm very good getting in there. When the fights over and bumping a guy off I never hit straight on an angle ban off their feet? That's I'm trying do do you know when a guy's fake like you know there's Kicks to the Middle Region that are close to the balls. But Not really I you you know like at the high inner thigh. Do you guys faking. Like he's acting like you got kicked and balls sometimes. Yes sometimes no and dangerous. Because you're like is he like You know obviously he's in pain. You always go from the from the from the stance of safety. She always called on a little break or you tell them look I saw. It's good it's good let's go let's go let's go and I mean that mistake like I got clearly got kicked. I told. Hey you're good you're good let's go. Let's go and he was good. He wasn't hurt but he got. He did get kicked in the ball. He's able to keep going but I I missed it. I also thought they got they. Didn't I thought it was a high kick but then replay I was CONC- It if you call time and you're not sure there's no such a protocol neutral corner neutral corner you stand. There was a fighter. No coaching right. No coaching exactly. You stand in the Corner Watch. You're responsible for kicks. It tells you backstage response bounce for you strikes. You're responsible for it landed landed. High just wasn't intentional. Don't worry about it when you go home and have a conversation with them. We'll get by because I can but here I understand. I don't argue with me I know it's unintentional. You're responsible happens again. I'm thinking about taking the point. Okay good okay. Log onto him as I'm walking over him looking outside the cage at the at the head desk at the head the head. That's because the Monitor in front of it jurisdiction California. We all get monitors right. I'll just get maters ars and I'll look at the referee. The next referee coming in. Who's now technically is my second? Where the next guy coming into the cage is my second I look at him? He'll look a mango. NOPE didn't hit them or Yup Yup that hitter but hit them. Okay got hit. Let me know when you're ready to go. I want to get this as fast as possible. I gotta go now ninety time. Do you need not take a look at you. Know I think I'm okay if you if if you need to check and walking into the DOC and you walk out of the cage door and let the doctor take a look at them at the cage door KNOB LA whatever if it's a no okay look didn't hit. I know you good. We've already called star. We get ready to get back to it. Well no no no sorry we saw the replay didn't hit. We're getting back into this fight. You Ready. You ready fight. You don't give them an excuse because I have confirmation from outside and I can see the jumbotron at show's content. You thought there was context. All the happened was a six seven twelve second break. And then we're back into the fighting LESCOE. If there's a real instance I let them take his on us. And how do they get for a ball shot by business to get his blood. How long do they get if the fingers dislocated? I don't know how long they get their toenails dislocated. I've never heard of that before. I don't know right. There's no time on anything but blood but does not shot. It's the only time the only time frame that you have is not shot your ministry cover. That's it everything else. A dislocated finger like use your the Raff you see Thrown to wild names and the bad. What Paul Bundle the head hunter? And that's how big of a job at fighting. I Dunno Rico Rodriguez but Paul gets hand. Cotton the CAGE dislocates finger. You can't stop by what's he doing. He's probably clean our CH- okay. I would be doing so. Can he quit if you raise attention to that to that package. I have to stop the fight. If you you do not halted or you stop it. Live fights over so if I have he says hey my fingers dislocated advice overdone if he brings attention to it feist on Friday safety if he does not bring attention to it and you just see it he keeps going okay. So like Prime example or not want to use that one till getting in trouble. Now I'm trying to think of the fireworks had a disfigured. No say so. Let's go. This goes into this goes into the thought process to guys getting punched in the head. And he's got a cut above his eyebrow around yes wide open cut wide open. Dhaka's looked at it. They have its image. It's already been between rounds verdict. Look at it. We're fighting a wide open cut. They got bass lean in it the bleeding stop. He's fighting bang. Bang Bang Bang is getting hit and getting hit in it. He's not touching it. He's not paying attention to it. It keeps fighting but his eyes closed but he doesn't. He's not rubbing his eyebrow he's not rubbing anything anything he just keeps. Friday keep the going it keeps rubbing it with his hand. He's touching his hand. He's bothering you. Tell US bothering them and bothering them. It's piling okay. Hold on time and the DOC look.

"Terms of passing. He is a tremendous pass say one of my favorite LeBron James moments. And it's funny because it ties into the angry AUSSIE coincidence. Probably not. But I was watching this on YouTube, and I just dialed up maybe my favorite search of all time a couple of days ago. Andrew bogut hard fouls. Yeah. Dahlen enjoy enjoy. But there's one where he fouls abroad, pretty hard kind gives them a little shove. Lebron adds a pre traumatic flop to the shove. And then he falls down hits his head on the camera. And he just stays down, dude. Like he's been shot. Like, he's all rolling around all my God. But that whole sequence that's one of my favorite LeBron moment. That is pretty well. Guess what you may get one. Whereas Lakers they done. I think so. No, no, no. I think we know. Yes. They are. Yeah. Hey, buddy. Joe for your head since Murph lex LeBron today, and I don't say this to do you notice? Also in that same clip when you watch that you ever notice how none of his teammates come over to help. I'm just just keep that much. Let the emotions get the best of me and pretty much played the last two games with a broken hand. So. Great. My favorite tell you this. But did the last couple of shows with a a strained oblique? I wasn't going to mention that what I've been dealing. Yes. Speaking of oblique Pablo Sandoval has. He hit a Homer, you Pablo walkabout I won't Pablo when my world again, Murph. I do like you with who is it. Oh such Josh. Yeah. You can't live without him over, bro. I know. For a quick shot at says rejoin with grandmaster flash in the jungle their loved that. I was lucky enough to see Hamilton here at San Francisco. I got gotta always tip by cap. There's a little moment where Lin Manuel Miranda drops a little sometimes I wonder how I keep from going under in the middle of one of the rap battles with Hamilton. And I'm in the crowd going. Yes. Because I'm a big disciple of the grandmaster flash era, which is all school kids old school doubt back when there was a positive message for the kids as opposed to nonsense. They're spewing out there now out like a light slept through the flight, all the other stuff. So anyway, back to the the matter at hand. Sure. And that is I missed this yesterday. But I want to hear it. If I missed it. I imagine one of our listeners did to Charles Barkley and we were talking about yesterday. We went through the whole autopsy of the warriors and Durant and the White Sox had, and why is he knocking Kerr? And all that heard Tolbert say in his say, he said, yeah, he was just being a D. Although he said the word which you have on your do. I like to I like. Speak only do for me. It's just so wrong. It's so strong. Why listen to me do it when you can hear it from the best Sean Penn Tober was saying he goes for Durant. He was just being a d. Okay. All right. There you go. Right. But anyway, we talked about how it was. Maybe this generation is different in this age of anxiety. That Adam silver said that social media has made these kids in their twenties unhappy unhappy, what is happiness polymath. Ponder that in my yard. When I moved to Mendocino, dude, you might find it there. I think it's waiting for me inside the irt, so yours you got. I did I tell you. I told the story about my high school movie theater manager who came out and this guy, Mr Monti and the kid who said he was going to drive the cut I told that story in the Murph, okay based on your description like my every time you talk about this guy. I see sergeant Carter from Gomer Pyle is more like it's more like Bing Crosby looking. But sergeant Carter attitude. Yeah. Mr. Jeremiah's ever rest in peace. Mr Monti was my high school theater. I worked at the movie theater in town. Yeah. Yeah. We're the polyester blazer flipped up there to your left. Upstairs to your left. Shoutout ratner. Marc Ratner another great theater employees. It wasn't a multiplex. What was awesome was? We sold those tickets for like, the seven o'clock show and then chilled for two hours. Did you talk to your co worker and say, I hate working here. All the actions across the street by Sweetwater. Yeah. Pretty much, but I was inside mill valley riffing, I'll tell you. What though I was like Radnor having crushes on girls and not acting. That's my dead. Instead now go very weapon through the pages. There I told you guys I had a guy. I think I told the story on the air the guy who was one of the guys who had graduated from high school's name was John, but he stayed in town was continued to work at the theater when everybody else went off to college. Mr Monti would Santoro during the break for this pipe in his like checked blazer? He was a Canadian Royal Air Force World War, Two federal, wow. Vet, but he would smoke a pipe and come out and just roast us mercilessly. I told you remember fewer the horse bit me. Yeah. This is all stuff. We did on the air. I haven't heard it. Oh, he used to say, why don't you feel where the horse bit me? Boy, your new employees feel he'd reach out grab your testicles. And twist. Oh, wow. I mean, that's that's you know, borderline, you know. Now, I wouldn't recommend you do that. Now or anytime for that matter feel with a horse spit me, boy, that's one older man told him he had a comedy to the highest order a pipe in his mouth while he's doing. Get the visual of all one time he came out. And he said no cove, I wasn't there. Everybody. Boy, he's a John. Boy, what are you still doing here while everybody else's off getting a college education is smoking question Johnson, Mr Monti even thinking about that? And he said I'm thinking about actually saving some money from the theater and taking my car driving across the country to find myself. Nice Mr. money takes a spoke, find yourself boy, look on your driver's license. You're right there. And I was like just brilliant. You know, what I mean just that generation not having it? They're just not having any find yourself. Go blank yourself really work make some money go to college. It's not. So anyway, that leads up to this age of anxiety thing, Mr Monti all over again, Charles Barkley's, like Mr Monti saying find yourself, you're right there on your driver's license move on. So here's Barkley saying that kyri in the rest of this crew is just way too sensitive, coury Irving. I don't know him that way like a good kid, but I've never seen a person so notable to have so much success to have the world in apartment hand. He's gotta make forty fifty million dollars a year for the next ten fifteen years. He's already won a world championship movies. But he's got to be one of the most miserable people I've ever seen. It's been Mr Monti coming before the season. He's like that. Because Cari, wasn't like that before me and we both liked him. And then he. In Cleveland because he wasn't LeBron. Right. Well, he was such a. Still he's a baller. He's incredible to watch I ate like very few. I mean when he goes to the rim. He makes a lot of seemingly impossible shots when he's going up. You're like can't making that. Oh that went like he does that a great player. But yeah, now he's so outward now with it's a lot of this public apology to LeBron. It's just like he's like paving the way for his next move. And I think a lot of people are upset about that. Because they're like, hey, you're focusing on the next step instead of games on the schedule right now that they need to win. So well, I think most people would agree they should be higher than a four or five seed in the east a lot of people thought and still maintain when they play together they should be the number one seat. Yeah. He went on to say to he had more said these guys are making twenty thirty forty million dollars a year. I think that's probably the stupidest thing I've ever heard Adam silver say he said. Listen, he's a great guy. But that's the stupidest thing I've ever heard a Commissioner say these guys are making twenty thirty forty million dollars a year. They work six seven months a year. We stay at the best hotels in the world. They ain't got no problems. That's totally bogus. A person. So yeah, I amid seriously. So anyway, just letting go there, but then you know, what the kids would say that Barclays, you know, he doesn't feel it. He's insensitive the whole deal. Chanting. Good. Low base the low week, Hugh. Distortion.

"Are told me I guess these last three years what your thoughts have been on the side of era. Well, I think they they've definitely helped the sport they've cleaned it up, but cost us a lot of money because we've lost a lot of main events out of it. But I would rather have a clean sport than than worry about anything else. And I think that. Having excuse me big Jeff being involved with them Novitsky. I think we're much better today than we were four years ago five years ago. So he's gotta keep leading educating people. It was like an investment for the future too. Because I think with the the harsh sanctions that are out there. I think the younger generation just knows you know, the I can't beat this. You You know know what what? I I mean? mean, if you mess around you're gonna get caught. And so I'm I'm I have no problem with your Sada. I just wanted to I want the sport clean. Would you have wanted? You thought it when you were a commission member. Like was it a headache to have to sift through all that? I I don't know when I when I was on the commission may not may not have been You you saw saw. it. But we were testing all the way back as aggressively in randomly ZIM though, not as random because we post people when they fought here. But I remember way back in and I was still at the commission. So it's got to be maybe twenty years ago. Josh Barnett got you know, he I think he lost the title over. Maybe with Randy couture. So yeah, I think it's very necessary. And and you've got to test. It's not deal pry days anymore when you retire. Will you retire with the of see is an MA guy? Or is there have been any thoughts of returning to boxing? I here. Here's the way.

"That's for sure. But it's tough especially in AMA, it's even tougher. So Syracuse pulled off the upset, by the way. Amazed comparison com comparable to what you just. I mean, there's some fights that. I'm trying to think of one where I thought it should have been stopped a little earlier. I remember we had a girls fight in Brazil where the referee. Didn't stop it. Allen t initia- shan't go. Yeah. And it should have been stopped. It's just. It's tough. It's what boxing's hard to referee, but eh may is even harder because there's so many ways that you could win and. Here's what I have found more than anything. We go to all these different states in. Everybody's a great official from the states. You know, I've talked to the commission. They, you know, maybe they've worked before two hundred people all of a sudden, we we come in and there's ten thousand and it's it's a different world. Oh, yeah. And and people are good officials until they're, you know, they're on the on the floor, and it's different. You gotta make split second decision. And it's it's it's tough. Now, we had a show here at the palms where referee made a mistake a great referees names, Eve's LeVine. In a joy been his fight. He went to go in touch the fighters and Benveniste, let us let the whole go. And then he backed off and said fight, and and then Ben vanita choked him out, but things happen. That's. I thought it was a good football referee, and it you miss things. All right and. So I admire these guys it's oh, how about the fact that football. They're great refs. And sometimes they'll make the call though, go back and review it and bring in Mike Pereira. Mike Herria dean blandino, whoever and they'll still mess. The call. You know, what I mean because they're communicating with New York in our quotes, they're going over it. And and that official will still make a call. That's by the rule. Book is interpreted wrong. NFL makes statement it really is difficult to do. I know these guys catch a lot of flack, but we have some really really good quality referees mixed martial arts. It's just that. They're never really going to get that Pat on the back or anything when they make the good. 'cause like that's just you know, we expect of it. But when they make a mistake, they get buried, and I'm like, hey man, can do better have a nice try going back to what you said earlier. That's what John McCarthy. Stress to a C says go if you were to go out there. Let's see what your heart beats like you have to have. You have to be calm, cool and collected in in a scenario. Like that are otherwise, you're you're going to be more prone to making a mistake and herb has at demeanor. Mark Goddard like we said, Dan miracle. Now, there's a lot of lot of good ones. And it takes awhile to get that experience too. But but I've noticed. We're going to go to Wichita Kansas pretty soon. And they told me said you gotta seabees refs there. Great said. Okay. We'll take a look at them. But it's it's I like to see more women get involved. We have a good woman official in Brazil and. We're getting a few more women judges. So just like the NFL takes time. But do you have to be a practitioner to be a good official doesn't hurt? That's for sure. But people would say to me you never played big football. Maybe you'll be a better referee. If you were you know, had played. You got to know the rules. That's the most important part in August of Dan. Did you want to see them? Yeah. I like the you brought up the the Brazilian female ref. And I wish I knew her name right now is upsetting. She does a great job. But speaking of women referees, whatever happened to Kim Winslow..

How much have you had to interact with them? And what are your thoughts of him compared all the all of the boxing characters? You've the first time. I met him. We were in Sweden, and he was probably the sixth or seventh fight on the card, and he wouldn't fight of the night. So we we knew he was special excuse me. But my dealings with him been very, very good. It makes me laugh. I think way from knowledge just a regular guy just like Tyson's irregular guy.

Well, it was an ask you, you know, when we had Randy Gordon on I got to hear a little bit of his stories some of yours in the past as a Commissioner. I'm sure you had like a reputation or just the way that people viewed you can you speak on how did people view Randy? And then how do you think people you'd you? What was your personality is Commissioner Randy's? Okay. Said he in the beginning. He was against him. And. When I first heard about him. I may I just knew a little bit about in. And and I said I said this on a Larry King TV show with I was on there. With Senator McCain on one side and Ken shamrock into former owner Bob Myra, which we're on the other side.

They're only down one. But there's only three minutes left. And you never know. Also, I'm watching Serena Williams right now, she's representing the United States Davis Cup or anything. It's a it's a a slam. It's called the billion open. But it's one of the top games or sorry. Top tournaments for the tennis players. She's always got a unique outfit on Serena does. So I got thrown off. But have you guys seen that special being Serena enough? Yeah. That was really cool. Very well done that no tremendous athletes. He's probably the best woman's athlete. I don't know maybe back to bake d Dixon or someone way back. But she's unbelievable. The last twenty years. Yeah. Do what she's done and. She went and she had a baby. And now, you know, I guess it'll always be the comeback trail because of that. But you know, she's come back. She's one some more opens. And I think she years tied for the most cups by woman or she already broken. But. Amazing. And she is amazing. Yeah. But that was an incredible story. They went back and showed her and the dad and the sister how much they pushed each other and everything they went to coming off the streets at Compton. Yeah. It's an amazing story. But we were talking about Duke in and qs. I go back to the to the year. When when Duke wins beat UNLV in nineteen Ninety-one and add returning depending champs defending champs UNLV was undefeated going in. And I haven't forgiven chefs since and do came here to t mobile to play Novi. And I believe he ran it up. This is like two years ago. He'd beaten by fifty. Yeah. Did he I think he went seven or eight deep it didn't even go to the bench. Why would he do that? Why would he why would he run it up? I don't know over nineteen Ninety-one make a statement. Oh because when UNLV wanted they wanted by twenty thirty right? I mean, it really. All right time. They already beat in the next year. So, wow, fifty was that was it that bad? You remember when North Carolina keen was a number one like three or four years ago? It was a new orlean. It's the Orleans UNLV beat him. Yeah. That's that. Well, you get a signature win like that and recruiting class. You think you went over you will ever be back like two days, Mark or pretty hard to say the tarp days because this bit nothing like that in ninety percent of the schools, but I think we were discussing crowds and do with the raiders tonight. If you wanna Lovie had a good team, and we're we're winning big. I think you'd see you may not see seventeen eighteen thousand but I think you'd see twelve fifteen thousand. All right. It's the top of the hour break. It's a quick one. We're just going to check in real quick pay some bills, and we'll be right back in about ninety seconds. Don't touch that. Dial..

"Fight alley at the form. So so I broke his jaw. He broke his drive San Diego. Okay. It's the second fight. They ended up. I think at Yankee Stadium in New York for the third fight. But even the second fight I thought that that Norton one but Allie got the decision but going back to the forum. But first of all as everybody knows who is listening. We had planned on being here. We have sold tickets here. Almost six billion dollars for the tickets to the two thirty two card. Okay. True, thirty two cards, so and then. The commission said they needed more time in the couldn't have an emergency meeting. So this for John Jones. So we moved the fight on a Sunday afternoon. Put tickets on sale in LA at the forum on Wednesday, so fourteen thousand tickets in about three days had a two million dollar gate. I don't think any of the promoter in the world could have done that could have saved the show, and and it turned out to be a wonderful show. Besides which and John look good and historical with Amanda and winning. Amanda, she actually stole the show to me. I agree. I just thought she was tremendous. Yeah. I think that's a great rematch. Cyborg. You wouldn't think that would have happened to her? And she was she was buzz. She was knocked out. A couple of times she got hit really hard. And she kept sustained in the fight. I remember tweeting towards Mark Goddard. I thought he did an outstanding job of he was about to interject. But he noticed she still had fight left. And cyborg would you know, you're you're looking for some sort of signals to keep you in there. But because of that Amanda so precise so powerful so fast in the end, she just crumbled, you know, but that fight was amazing in terms of just the electric city the vibe, and I was at home, I wasn't even in the arena. So when John Jones came out with resides Zana gusts, and I thought well, this is the cherry on the Sunday. Like this gravy, whatever happens here. I've already had a great night because it culminated with those ladies, and then John was so masterful that you're right. It was like Amanda like there wasn't that pop. I guess other than him to you know, when when the wave the fight off, but that was something else. And when Amanda one seemed like the whole arena just jumped out of their seats, and it was. Really something. I believe that Mark Goddard has become one of the top referee. I'm real pleased that. We use them all over Europe. And now Bob Bennett from the Commission's using him here. So he's worked in I believe in New Jersey and New York. So he's he's doing great. Yeah. We gotta take one more break. Right. All right.

"That's all do you remember touring t mobile before it had opened, and they go here here the locker rooms, and we they go those are the basketball locker rooms. And we remember saying kind of big now like we're imagining maybe for UNLV or something, and they kind of gave us a wink lake. They'll be an NBA team here. Eventually, I think that's going to be true. How about those said with the call the dugout, Bob? Boxes of half underneath their bonkers. But. You been in that that's doesn't it no pun intended.

You see Oskar de LA Hoya? Right Felix Trinidad it it's kind of like, they have their bones, and their soul when you walk into a place like t mobile who's cats and pretty big fights as of late and even places like Barclays now are starting to pick it up a little bit do I know they don't probably have that same feel now. But do you anticipate them having that eventually, well, those those arenas that you're talking about are so big, and I don't know if you'll have them for for big big fights. But you lose some of the intimacy now. Now, the Connor fight with with Floyd was that was a real sellout. Big big crowd. I I really like, both Mandalay and MGM Grand Garden just for. It's a different feeling with the fans its closer. And but I can't imagine any arena prettier than than the t mobile and. If you have a good seat. It's one thing to sit in way on top unless you're standing by the bards not watching it the same way. Did you like the forum back in the day the way they had it before? Oh, yeah.

And then we have the LA Rams visiting the New Orleans Saints that will decide who the participants are for the Super Bowl, and that basically will culminate. Football. Because high school was done in December colleges was done last week Clemson upset Alabama. How about that? And then, of course, the Super Bowl will will finish things off with pro football, unless you count the proble. And of course, college basketball has also started the local team here is UNLV and for many years. It was the team. But now, of course, the Vegas Golden Knights. The raiders are gonna show up for the soccer team in town AAA are they triple double Isaka the baseball baseball. Yeah. So I mean, the city's growing, and I'm telling you pretty soon NBA is going to be right around the corner to maybe even baseball. I'm hearing. Obviously when the GM brought a WNBA NBA team in. I think that's pretty. And as a great sports town. But I am I'm looking forward to the raiders Golden Knights or a lot of fun to see a lot of all the weird. That's crazy. Number one. I've never heard of something like that a few years ago like three or four years ago. This is a club called Leicester City in England soccer team. Yeah. Free merely and they were five thousand to one to win the Premier League. And the reason is because it's thirty eight games there's twenty in the Premier League. So he play nineteen teams twice home and away. And to get through all that basically, the men are separated from the boys and they're six teams that have incl- incredible buying power, including Manchester. United Chelsea Manchester City, Liverpool Tottenham's and arsenal. Right. And so nobody gives any of the other teams that shot unless Leicester City did it that was incredible magin cashing that ticket. Well, the Vegas Golden Knights head something pretty similar as well. An amazing run for them to get that far. Just incredible. And they were up one nothing on the capitals. And I still knew people that didn't want to hedge their bet. Oh, yeah. My dad gave it to me as a gift it was like one hundred dollars at five thousand one or whatever the heck it was and I'm like just get your money Becker, just make a grand out of it. Now, they didn't understand it, you know. And then of course, they got swept and but people stood to make anywhere between forty and two hundred thousand. I mean, there were stories all over town. But but that that was crazy. And I was mad. I didn't think of it. Even just ten I can only afford ten or twenty something. Like that. You always get ahead. You make sure you're a winner. Right..

"When the time comes eight divisions. Nobody's ever done in encompass sports what he's done from about one hundred six pounds or so right up through one forty seven. It's amazing what he's done and Adrian Bronner just has a way of pissing people off. He just says. Is the wrong thing at the right time. If you will I suppose, and you know, ever starting with a few years ago, I guess it was on Showtime when right after the fight. He got down on his knees. And you sit all while this is going to be so great. He's going to propose to his girlfriend, and then he got down. And he said rush my hair with. Yeah. From that moment. He just started to make enemies, and he doesn't care. He does not care. And I think it's going to be a terrific fight. I really do.

Maybe may whether in a different capacity, but a lot of new stars came.

But there's really a lot of good talent. In a lot of in a lot of divisions.

And we're gonna find out what kind of shape he's in what kind of heart. He has. And I think we've found out everything we had to know about Kayla plant, and I think last night on FOX television. Another star was born in boxing. And a story was sad. But wonderful. Yeah. With his daughter and everything else yet, just another one of boxing's, many many stories Mark, you know, you you mentioned a few minutes ago. You said one word that really rang true. You said boxing is so resilient over the decades, it really has been resilient. And as you said, Mark, you know, once Allie was gone, and Tyson was gone and Sugar Ray, Leonard was people listening out. There goes boxing boxing out of here. Well, here we are in two thousand nineteen looking and again as you said more may maybe better than it's looked in decades. I think boxing is scorching hot right now. No, I believe that. Yeah. And, you know, this is why become jealous because aside from this pack Yale fight that comes that's coming up here in Vegas. There's one coming up in about two months of I'm not mistaken with the effort mentioned aerospace and Mikey Garcia Dallas Cowboys stadium. When we get the stadium. Mr. Radnor, are we going to have something like that as well? As the you have Siegen, a is the UFC gonna go to the stadium for for the big shows because that's something. I think we need to do a little bit more of an I'm really happy for boxing because those are tremendous shows when they have those stadium shows. Well, it it certainly depends on the match up..

"All right. Very cool. So. That one also has two title fights. Right. Yeah. That dillashaw fight with the boxing. Amanda, so Arnold on the card as well. Jerry. Raining. I just Andre. I don't know about the other fight. Randy will Amanda Serano be fighting on that card as well. Amanda Serano is on the card. I mean, she is really she's very special. The unfortunate thing about the females as when you're on top. There's just not a lot of competition a through and through. So I mean, they they take what they can. But she really is a very very special fighter. She really is. Yeah. You have Chris L? Jerry goes remember him? Yeah. He's going to be on the card as well. He caught Manny Pacquiao who by the way bites the next day here at the MGM, lots of boxing going on right? Yeah. Chris L, Jerry, former one hundred forty pound champion. He really made a mistake. You know, he he's he admitted that he went after the money he moved up, and he fought the legendary Manny Pacquiao in a fight that he just didn't belong to be in and Manny Pacquiao took him apart. And then later on he fought Errol, Spence another fight that he just shouldn't have been in. But he's back, and I'm told he's looking absolutely tremendous in training, and he's always in one thousand percent shape. Jerry. I can't believe that the one thing about Al, Jerry. I mean, this is a guy who could fight all night and not even breathe hard. But he cannot basically not concerto for hot fudge sundae. Yeah. He's not a big puncher. You're right. Not at all. But he is fighting, and he he's just a he's just a love when when you know him, and you watch how he treats the fans and everything he really is just a a fantastic person. And yeah, so he's going to be on that card at at the garden on Friday night. So isn't it cool? Now Randy I think the tide has changed. Do you? Remember about ten years ago fifteen years ago, there was a division between boxing anime fans. And now what I'm seeing is a lot of crossover whether it's media, whether it's the fans, why do you think that happened was boxing, maybe a little bit threatened by successive enemy, and maybe pushed back or what do you think happened is? I know Jim Lampley a lot of people are very vocal at first. But now, it's the other way round. Boxing, really was I think in the doldrums a little bit. And I'm lucky because I love them both. But yet I'd walk into the gyms where I was training and many people you either m may or you were boxing and the guys could say nothing. Nice about boxers in the boxing fans could say nothing nice about the way. And now, I think because of a lot of crossover fights in the Conor McGregor stuff in the the Mayweather this. And that I think they finally have kind of melted together. And I believe that all the fans many of the fans I see who are MMA fans are now boxing fans and vice versa. And I think that also with the UFC just being so red hot. I think it it basically forced a lot of the fight promoters to step up their game. And I think you you've seen boxing really come on in the last few years. So we're getting the the best. Of both worlds, I'm the happiest combat sports fan in the world. No, I think boxing is doing the best. It's been in the last probably twenty five thirty years. Yes. And so many good fights. Yeah. I'm excited supposed resilient of all sports because they would say once Allie stop fighting. It'll never be the same be LA Hoya. But there's always somebody Ryan. And right now, it's it's really really great. And I'm looking forward to to be in there Friday night. I I every time I want to go to a fight here. I got a fight out of the country, or so I will not be at the pack. He'll fight. But see I wish that I was going to be in Vegas for that one for the Pac yo Brunner fight. That is a fight where so many people, you know, pack, yells, an absolute legend. Here's a guy who's first ballot International Boxing hall of fame.

"That's why the worst place team. I mean, that's this happens in all professional sports with the worst place team gets the benefit of drafting first. And then the schedule is also weighed so that the worst place teams get a softer schedule the following year, the salary cap distributes, you know, makes it fair for all all the teams. And yet somehow they're still there every year. Yeah. It is amazing actually looking at something right now. It's a meement is not everybody loves the same team. But everyone hates Tom Brady, actually agree. I don't really hate Tom Brady there are certain players where he just kind of go. But he's never really been a jackass anything. He's good. But what I rose. I I hope Casey in the Rams played because of what that that special game. We had Monday night game. And I did say and I've had it to here with Tom Brady. I don't hate him. But enough with the one we'll see another team. I love to see the chiefs so lost SuperBowl. Forget about that loss three. Yeah. There's a quarterback out there. Never lost. That's pretty impressive. Well, there's two of them. Terry bradshaw. Won four and lost. None. And Joe Montana won four and lost. None. I mean there. I'm sure there's a bunch of one knows. I think they'll SIMS it's to an old, but he didn't even play Hostetler. Yet was there's chip Kelly. But he's what like two feet from a wide, right. For one of that. When if only he had anonyna- Terry, which by the way, this might be his last season like Forty-six still kicking. Wow. And he missed two. Yeah. That makes me wonder Mark when when you're watching sports as a fan, whether it's like a football basketball. Have you are you able to separate that and be able to enjoy a fan of this part of you may be I don't wanna say your job or stature gets in the way. But you know, for example, I'm bad at football. But I was just like a basketball reverence like a guy like a Rasheed Wallace who has got some character. We'll probably come across your desk. If you were commissioning that sport. Do you get turned off by allow personality at all? Or does that affect how you enjoy the game player when I'm watching the games? I I still think as an official. Listen to the replay guys. I think Mike Pereira has opened up a whole vista o of do things for for officiating. And he's done. Great Scott team blandino with them. The former a former head of officials for the NFL. Now, we have guys in every sport yet might carry does CBS no longer, but he he was doing it for a while former referee. So I think that educates the fans, but I I watch it as a fan a try to watch his a fan the hockey I can do because I I'll never understand all the rules air the blue line and the red line, but. But when I'm watching football. I I think as a line judge or a headlines when sure so if you think about it you've given us a version of Mike per on the broadcasts as well. There's a lot of times they've gone you live to kinda sort things out whether it's an eye poke or kick in the growing or something like that. But a toepoke a token, which we've never had before which had never seen which is legal by the rules. Now, maybe we have to change that. I poke rule to include it a toe in the eye, right? That we're gonna look so remarks alluding to is the Megan Anderson and cats in Ghana fight at UC to thirty two. You think they're going to have to alter the rule..

"I wasn't. I wasn't even concerned about it or anything like that. You know what I mean? Because imagine the the level of officiating in the NFL is probably the highest of all the sports in terms of the vetting and the experience and everything you need to get through to get to them. And so I imagine, you know, she must have she must have a lot of years under her belt and must be quality official. She worked in different conferences in college. Head to work at least five to ten years in college. And she's been in the NFL her fifty or now, so multiple tough door good for her and so much for defense wins championships. All the offense of powerhouses are in the conference championships. I distributed some odds there because wanna look you have an NFL sheet as well. Let's see here. The Rams, of course, you know. They can score the saints the patriots and the chiefs they kept it. Simple three and fifty seven for both favorites at. Home. The chiefs host the patriots in their minus three and the total Fifty-seven the saints host the Rams three and fifty seven and I'm wondering if people would really love for that. Rams KC rematch. Call. Fifty fifty fifty something to fifty something final. And that would be pretty epic to have them back in the Super Bowl. But that would mean the road team would have to win in New Orleans, and as you can see that's not an easy thing to do. All though, the eagles. Definitely mainly. Yeah. The patriots. They weren't threatened at all by San Diego. No. I was amazed at how good they look the first half. Let thirty five seven right. I four times they score touchdowns with I five times. So yeah. So Brady is still bringing in his forties. Not stopping any a lot of people including myself. He's getting agent. It's just gonna he's gonna fall off. Just like all they all do. They all lose the father time. And I thought this might be the season. He looks so sharp though, that Tony Michelle was running like crazy. He makes a big difference. Yeah. And their receivers even without grat. There say he's not a slowdown, but his blocking is unbelievable. Right. And he opened a lot of those holes. But. Now, it was a fun game fun game. So they lost. Josh Gordon guy earlier in the as well so with gronk, and Gordon somehow they can just plug and play plug and play doesn't matter. The patriots are machine. I don't know if we'll ever see anything like that. Again, man that this is this is a very very competitive league and its league built for parody..

"Like, Mark said, we are going to be talking to Randy, Gordon, and Randy Gordon is also a former athletic Commissioner in the state of New York. Now, he hosts at the fights here on fire nation channel Ninety-three affect you. Probably heard the show prior to ours. He along with Gerry Cooney they've been doing it for a long time. And of course, he actually did the fight club show way back in the day. And now, he's peaking mostly boxing. But but he can talk mixed martial arts or whatever. And I wanna talk some boxing is a big fight here in town this weekend. There's another one coming up at the Cowboys stadium. Pretty soon too. That's going to be pretty epic. And then how about the NFL playoffs? We're down to four UNLV hoops the Vegas Golden Knights. They're on a roll. If I'm not mistaken, the biggest might one e I think seven hundred I think the rebels have won three in a row in two thousand eighteen to. Yeah. So, you know, things are well the Knight's got beat a couple of days ago. They beat the Blackhawks, but they got beat. I believe here in town. But they went seven out of eight or. Okay. Okay. So yeah. Are you have you embraced them? The other teams as well or. Yeah, I've I've been to a couple of games I'm going actually next Monday Martin Luther King's birthday day, three o'clock game. Nice. Yeah. So I'm going to go over there against the Minnesota wild. Do you get to enjoy it as a fan or do you or do they got you working no strictly as a fan many many years ago, the Rangers or no Aves the kings? Maybe they were playing the Rangers came to outside it Caesar's they had a actual outdoor rink. And so it's probably twenty five years ago, and they had a big invasion of grasshoppers got on the on the ice we have stopped again. But I was I was keeping track of penalty minutes. Then. Okay. So tell me about this here. Why did they get an invasion of grasshoppers? Did it have to do with the ice itself or think? So. Yeah, it must have because I've never seen that before. And this was an exhibition or an actual exhibition, but it was definitely the kings that might have been against the Rangers. But it was outdoors at Caesar's where we had all the big fights. Did they have any fights that night? I remember they had a couple of skirmishes, but nothing nothing like, Kuni and home. Snow roughly, do you know, what the attendance would have been for something like that? I would imagine it probably wasn't the twenty five thousand seat arena, probably around fifteen thousand. Okay. I would have been cool too. Let's trivia there. Okay. How about the raiders played here at Cashman field as the Oakland Raiders in an exhibition game the AFL af AFL days. I got a lot of trivia. Are you ready for that one? Are you ready for the raiders to the storm the town, and yeah very much? So have made inquiries about helping them with the chains and the clocks and game operations because we we do that for UNLV. And but that that means you're committing to eight Sundays. Well, I guess you could still do your your UFC duties, maybe you can't oversee Prague and and jump on the Concorde and be back in time. But no. But of obviously wouldn't only be me we have we'd have several people in just like the UNLV Saturday night. They're here at home. And I'll be in in Brooklyn, you know, a few years ago. I think it was the sun bowl was one of your last games. Right. As an official last game was the Cotton Bowl. Cotton Bowl K on the state of Texas. But that might have been it for your that was with Bama and Texas Tech the year before became real Bama now with Nick. But what a big thrill for me to be in the Cotton Bowl, seventy five thousand people. Bama one. I think twelve to ten or something like that. Did you see on Sunday the NFL had their first female Thomas? Yeah. Yeah. Very it's great. Just another official now. She's it don't even talk to her about her as a woman. She said NFL official, you know, other than her other than the p the camera pointing to her a couple times when when it was said, I couldn't have I couldn't have even told..
