"He's kind of new to belot or but he was coming in with a pretty good pedigree and of all the outcomes that you could have asked for. I don't think anybody would have called our neiman gracie man. He has been quietly doing it now for a while and delatour. He's starting to become something really interesting right like you saw it tonight. The what they have him doing over there. That coach's name escapes me at the moment. Somebody give it. Give me immigration coach. Farrell cordera cordeiro. That's right that's right. What would they have him doing out there with man like he looks good tonight that uppercut that finishing combo. Look like someone who actually knew how to strike right like. That wasn't some lucky shot that he was landing mixed it up pretty well in there and you combine that with the we already know about him with the ground game the savant on a mat. Like that he's gonna turn into something really surprising that i think none of us quite expected it was really interesting to see. And it's it's always cool. I've said this before but it's always cool when you can sort of see these guys these younger guys coming up and then sort of that. Switch flip in real time on them where they kind of figure out other aspects of the game that you know they've been working on. I think we just did that tonight. And saw that from neiman gracie. Kay he called out to guys after this victory called on. Mvp he's getting ready to fight. Douglas lima very soon. And then he also called the jason jackson. He wants that rematch. He felt like he got hose. And i think other people would agree with him on that but in my opinion he's probably gonna get a title shot against yorislav amazon because that just seems to be the direction. They're going right now. So if you're the or matchmakers how do you book neiman gracie moving forward. Does he waits for one of those two guys at this point or do you just try to keep the guy at the at the center and just keep throwing them out there and trying to knock dudes out. We've got to find a match up enough for k. One neiman right. It's like he's such a the gracie's ever since the glory days of and some of the other guys had a chequered results in mma and actually own may if we're being generous so it's funny. He's always like he's been cut from a different clock cloth kind of ever since he burst onto the scene both even personality weiser's he stands out from the family and i think that's great. I don't know. I would love to see him fight. Mvp i just think that bell tower would is not going to go in that direction. I mean people can bring up all they want the whole. You know everybody's kind of had some favorable matchmaking some of it you know is out of their hands. He's had some ponant fall out. But i do think this matchup they would want to avoid At least at least as far as what's next for neiman gracie maybe sometime next year they across past bending How the results. Their next fights go but this next one they make. I think you're right. I think they They may be just push him into that. Tells shot with with amazon. I think it's a good stylistic match release as far as being theoretically two guys who will who will give some entertaining stuff on the ground I also think that boasts again..

It's way i the ten grand seventy seven thousand dollars in eight hundred seventy seven and eight hundred thousand eight hundred dollars. So almost seventy eight k. Four eight hundred dollar bank on those two men seventy k. I hope someone did that. This missile maybe zero people.

I mean a guy who was coming in here. I think he was undefeated riot like he was making his. He's kind of new to belot or but he was coming in with a pretty good pedigree and of all the outcomes that you could have asked for. I don't think anybody would have called our neiman gracie man.

Amazon is really well rounded. I think lebron show awhile in the people. it's yeah. I think it does have it's scheduled. I think they'll throw throw him in there. Jason jackson that kind of seems like the direction they're going after that card iran. that's not officially at. That's unofficially at now. I see i see. Yeah yeah right. Yes okay. So i would say i would say should wait. Yeah i'm on the neiman gracie. Wait wait to see which see what happens there. Trade casey your thoughts on the main event. I was just. I was just kinda shocked. That's all that was. I like everything she said. That was a that. Wasn't that wasn't that wasn't striking from grappler. That was striking from a very good striker. It wasn't like wasn't like linenger was like waiting for a takedown and he came in over over top or anything like that. It was a straight up good striking good elbow. Good uppercut perfect timing. you know. that's all. I was just like. Wow neiman gracie's much better. He is improving. And it's pretty cool watching fighters improve with such a big spotlight on them. So good job mr racing. That's all. He is a force to be reckoned with I'm not sure how good he is. And a worldwide kind of welsh white rankings. But without a doubt right. Now ambulatory yeah. He's he's tough out for for everyone at the top. I want i want. I want the. I want more. I want to see him by jackson again. I wanted to see if i did. He lima. I hardly yeah okay. Oh yeah he title against roy what time it was a really competitive thaw competitive. Yeah so he'll john fitch right afterwards. So immigration is awesome. And i can't wait to see him back again. The loser of the lima. Mvp fight seems seems like the right way to go to big names. That's the way to go because you feel like if mvp beasley lima his next. It's gonna be for the belga against whoever who it is so Good win for gracie. Nice win for diana bennett. Oh great wait what. She looked really good in the fight. saul rogers workmanlike decision..

"Six seven seven fighters making their pro debuts on this card seven fighters in making their debut. This is is Rancho smoker out in the mid west is bella. tore in california. Who the hell's going on this weekend. What do you think. Jose zir zir. Second a low key banger. Here that that sticks out in your mind. I mean it's always going to be like specific fighters i want to see the actual fight us often Let's not forget. Scott coker is close to his family. Because he lives in san jose and this fight is in san jose so he probably just took a bunch of aka guys and go. We're going to put you on this ballot or card. So that's why this car is so massive because there's a massive gymnast just pull pull from I saw rogers is an interesting name. He was supposed to fly on the ultimate fighter and then he got like a grand theft auto that he lied about so that is infinitely more interesting than anyone else on this card because he lied about a crime thought no one would notice it when and did really well on the ultimate fighter and then use say. Hey man you lied about. Stealing a bunch of cars oop. Sorry so saul. Rogers is always a fun. Guy watch demon gracie i remember interviewing a bunch of fighters Like not in the grand prix but like during that welterweight grand prix in every single one said neiman gracie was the dark horse to win that entire tournament to the point where i started to believe it and then it just didn't happen and then all sudden. Jason jackson is an incredibly talented fighter. So which caught me off guard. So i guess. The immigration saw desert two names. I want to see but not any specific. Mike i guy you now as looking at this i mean i don't watch this at all i know is a holid- gracie because i is that the worst of the gracie's is also on this card. Which is great.

"It's it was a beautiful open. I mean, I've tried to get deep interviews Aurora enough at twenty minutes half an hour before an Rury Rory is on the spectrum in terms of talking really doesn't wanna communicate. He's very closed up. I mean done get me wrong. A feel as close as anyone in the media to him, 'cause I've interviewed him, so many times, I really like seen him grow up a speech, affair asus coach Lauren being around Rory in the UFC him, ballot or a lot of access to him. And I think we have to celebrate moments when someone wants to be utterly honest about what's going on in their soul. And that was the moment that will remove Donald changed as a communicative human being. It was a moment of honesty in which the truth is, it's not good to hurt another human being, and he had a yet an epiphany in many ways, whether he. In training camp on I don't know. But you had it during that fights where he didn't have the wriggling him to get away. When Fitch put him on the grounds and thus what made it close fight in the stand up. I don't buy the fact he didn't wanna hit fetch because he hit me enough times. You know, he did really well in the it was all Ghibli tool, but fit was brilliant. It frankly for forty two year old. I think he is. But when I heard Rory talking like that I genuinely thought that that was the end of him, I now, now, you'll friend and mine. The bad guy aerial, you'll friends Charleston fights some on June. The full teen Madison Square Garden nosy Rory with six weeks. Notice six weeks. He knows fighting sixty announce to fight Neiman Gracie, Madison Square Garden that noise in the semi final of the Balasore, welterweight sonum, having said, two months earlier six weeks earlier. I'm not sure I wanna hurt anyone anymore. I feel about that. I'm i'm. Slightly concerns if he loses that over the end of his career. I think if he wins the tournaments hill, the end of his career because I do feel the what and this is what we do. Also, see with fighters, an I'm old enough to been during this nearly three decades Bing around fighters. The you see people grow up, I mean, I remember token to Randy could sure about how he loved him MA when it came around, because he'd been the alternates, three Olympic Games for being tough guy in the military could do anything that anyone else could take physically great wrestler alternate. Three times the Olympics, and by the time Emma may came around he was going to fulfill himself, as a man, because he was so frustrated, what life brought him. He got that in the end, and he, and he and people change. They mature I love the maturing of fighters. Something leaves them in the end. You know, I'm a grandfather, I'm in my fifties, and, you know, even though people might not look at me. I you know, when I. Played school. I played spore and are really committed an but leaves you Venturi. You go back and try and play it sometimes think my God, I am pasta and that's the only time you find out, and I think, psychologically, sometimes spiritually fighters get pulse, too. And I think that's why Rory MacDonald, his lesson is getting worse. He probably getting seven hundred fifty thousand fights, so his wife, and he or his wife who's small children is gonna sites him. Have a couple more fights. You're being paid brilliantly. You're still good at what you do. But you're not Metairie. You were once look at the fights Robbie Lawler, look what those fights would have done him. The fight with Masasi would have done to him the spirit gets diminished, and we say what we witness it the spirits of fighters gets diminished, and it does happen. And that comes an end and it's there's nothing worse than seeing fighters. Go on. I love BJ. Penn, I love your IRA Faber, you know. Yeah, but why comeback why these guys fighting on? You know why? Well, we know why 'cause I got a good payday..

"Returns, we'll reconnect with ROY McDonald in a matter moments case, you missed it last week he fought to a majority draw gains, John Fitch and San Jose in bell tower. And he is going to return to action he posted this on social media. I believe it was Tuesday afternoon that he is going to return on June fourteenth, the fight Neiman Gracie in the next round of the Biltmore welterweight grand prix semi finals the other bracket actual play out this Saturday just outside of Chicago as Douglas Lima. The former champion meets Michael venom page. I do believe we have Rory back. Is there there is? Hey, roy. You said something in your previous answer that. I just want to ask you about you said that you felt confused. What did you feel confused about? Well, I felt like I was unsure of. The emotions I was feeling in the flight. So I don't know if you read my statement after the couple of days after the fight. Yup. But you know, for the longest time I fought with. A certain. Anger inside of me. So it was kind of like a release felt good to fight to do damage, and like it made me feel better about myself in some kind of a way. And lately because of my new relationship with Jesus Christ. And I just don't feel that. That hurt my harder that pain that used to drive me. I have I have new life. So. And peace in my heart. And I don't really have that anger that I used to that used to drive me. So finding like it's kind of weird to go into a fight and knuckle through the same emotions that I may have used to used to feeling so I guess I was just I was just caught up thinking about why I'm feeling like this. What am I doing here? So I was just not sure with the make of it. This is something that I feel like you've been feeling for a little bit, right? This isn't a new phenomenon in your life. Nuts. Totally new. But this fight in particular was probably the most dramatic. Okay. I've felt that. Because as I grew closer to God, and my relationship deepens, and the changes are taking place, and progressing. It's becoming more evident as I'm letting go of my old life, and and you know, walk into new life. If I feel the change more did you ever have moments in the play where you were thinking yourself like I don't really want to be here. I'm not really feeling this. I wish this would just end. No, not at all. Like, I wasn't like stressed out. I was just more just thinking in my head about how he was feeling. I I wasn't stressed in all the fights. In fact, I was taking a lot of breaks just kind of thing rather than just worry about what I was doing in the cage. Yeah. I remember when we spoke after this was announced, but before the fight, and obviously after the Masasi fight, and you said that you didn't really feel like yourself in there against saucy, you can pull the trigger where you feeling the same way. Or was this a different kind of feeling? Somewhat but a little different. So in the most AUSSIE fight. I feel like it was due to mostly preparation and focus. Whereas with this fight, I was very prepared very focused, and I worked very hard like I would have any other of my heart training camps. So I don't feel like that was the my lack of fire or anything determination. It was mostly just being caught up with the thinking of the what I was going through in the cage and where I was going to move forward..

"But also saying like, you know, what I know. I am gonna find him not gonna retire. Because to me when we're thing. I just wanna add is like I've never fought for you never fought before. But I've been told from any fighters that those moments after fight those like seconds after fight. Those are those your most honest thoughts sorta like when you're drunk, right? There's no filter, and and and that to me was his honest dots. That was him unfiltered. Why are we pushing him to fight in six weeks? It feels a little bit tone deaf to me. What do you think I agree with? That wholeheartedly. But then again, you don't know what the promoter standpoint, maybe they had earmarked for that part of the tournament that the way that they're permanent structure is going to happen. They say healthy and avoid unable to make the bell the walk so to speak. Maybe they were gonna strip strip the title. We don't know what's going on in terms of behind the scenes, but yeah, I think that for him to turn around in six weeks with those very introspective thoughts, and to somehow change of mindset. So he goes back to bite Mona exclusively fight mode is going to be very difficult thing for him to do. Yeah. I feel comfortable about it. All I mean Neiman Gracie isn't a heavy hitter. So to speak, but I do feel like he's a great fighter. He's a dangerous fighter. I didn't love his comments being honest after the fight. I felt that they were a little insensitive like to suggest that ROY was lying that he was saying that he's afraid to fight him. I mean, come on. I get what's going on here. I get it's all alpha male stuff. I get it's Machiko. But I I would love to see fighters kinda back each other up a little more when it comes to these things in the. And he didn't. And that's all well and good. I just don't really understand why it has to happen. So soon that that makes me feel a little funny might my prediction is we'll try to get him to fight the tournament out. There's probably people who are telling him. Look, there's a million dollars on the line here. You know, just just win two more fights. And then you can sell into the sunset. It does seem like the end is near for ROY McDonald? You get that impression as well. I don't necessarily agree with that. Honestly, I think that if he can find a way to get these two divide the Coa coexist, if he can rationalize the idea of being a holy man being a Christian man and having the deep-seated beliefs can coexist with the idea of going into a cage and hurting another man and competing at a at a high level or even thinking, maybe this is what I was put on this earth to do is to become an elite fighter is better than ninety nine point nine percent of the fighters in the world, if he can get those two things he might be better than ever. So I I don't agree with the idea that maybe the end of the year for Rory. I think this could just be a new beginning for that said I would. Be shocked if he says, listen, I can't get two things. The coexist loses even Gracie and calls the day and said, this just isn't gonna work for me on a personal level. I could definitely see that as well. But if he is able to get these things to work in concert together, it could fuel him to be an even better. Martial artists fans. Get a little uncomfortable. When religion is brought up in sports. And I think that that is sort of clouding their their thoughts on this because people just sort of dismissive because oh God is involved..

"Ottawa this Saturday, which is here in the United States on ESPN. Plus, but before we get to Ottawa I wanna talk to you about ROY McDonald, a fellow Canadian who fought on Saturday, and San Jose fought to a majority draw against Jon Fitch. And of course, by now, we've talked on many different platforms about his post fight comments. And then just yesterday, we got his followup statement, which confirmed that he will not be retiring and that he will. In fact, you fighting Neiman Gracie on June fourteenth Madison Square Garden in the next round of that tournament. Now that you've had a few days to digest not just by comments. But we also get the follow up. How do you feel about this all Aaron? Just one of the human stories that we've seen in makes more than some time. Now, the thing about Rory that I think people have trouble wrapping their head around is why all of a sudden is having trouble dueling with this new viewpoint that he has a new religious viewpoint. And I think what people need to take into consideration. Is, you know, fighting Rory's almost muscle memory at this point. He's been doing this for more than half of life in terms of competing in combat sports. So the religious part of his life is still very new. I mean, he's a new father. He's new religion and delving deep into religion. He listens to all kinds of different religious podcasts watching sermons online, really really into it. So these are still training wheels for in terms of that new part of his life, and he's trying to find a way for both of these things to coexist, and that's gonna take time. So I think that when we heard his speech over the weekend. A lot of people were quick to react and say, okay, those guys down. I don't know how we're gonna keep doing this. But I don't think that's only the clothes necessarily. I think it's. Just gonna take time for him on a human level, and as part of his human evolution to be able to get both of those battles of life to coexist in a meaningful bassin. So I agree with you on the reaction to it. I you on like, I think it's very commendable. What he said, you know to come out there and be as honest as he was in front of his promoter in front of the ticket buying fans to wear his his emotions on his sleeve. He has always been talked to him on many occasions, and you really talk to him about his newfound interest in in religion to do all of that is commendable in my respect from actually grew. And there was a part of me that kinda felt bad. When I heard that. And I was thinking like, wow, here's a guy that we've been watching for so many years. He's going to be the second greatest Canadian federal all-time. He's been fighting since he was sixteen. He's been fighting for fourteen years, and he still champion. He's not getting knocked out. But it's clear that he's evolving he's changing in front of our eyes. And it's also clear that you know, the fire inside of a MS is dimming a little bit. And there's nothing wrong with that. And so my immediate thought was like good on. Your mcdonald's. I don't know if you're going to retire, but you should probably take a little break in figure things out and see where you are. Because when you're saying things like I don't wanna hurt another man that's somewhat alarming, and then they come out. And he has the statement that no I am gonna fight on June fourteenth. I'm gonna fight in six weeks time against a rising prospect immigration. I feel a little funny about this. I don't understand why he has to fight on this card and they wanted him to fight on this card. It's MSG needs some big fights. But the card is looking pretty good on its own, right? They just added Horiguchi Caldwell. You feel a little strange about that statement that he put out yesterday essentially explaining his thoughts. But also saying like, you know, what I know. I am gonna find him not gonna retire. Because to me when we're thing. I just wanna add is like I've never fought for you never fought before. But I've been told from any fighters that those moments after fight those like seconds.

"neiman gracie" Discussed on Ariel Helwani's MMA Show

"Ottawa this Saturday, which is here in the United States on ESPN. Plus, but before we get to Ottawa I wanna talk to you about ROY McDonald, a fellow Canadian who fought on Saturday, and San Jose fought to a majority draw against Jon Fitch. And of course, by now, we've talked on many different platforms about his post fight comments. And then just yesterday, we got his followup statement, which confirmed that he will not be retiring and that he will. In fact, you fighting Neiman Gracie on June fourteenth Madison Square Garden in the next round of that tournament. Now that you've had a few days to digest not just by comments. But we also get the follow up. How do you feel about this all Aaron? Just one of the human stories that we've seen in makes more than some time. Now, the thing about Rory that I think people have trouble wrapping their head around is why all of a sudden is having trouble dueling with this new viewpoint that he has a new religious viewpoint. And I think what people need to take into consideration. Is, you know, fighting Rory's almost muscle memory at this point. He's been doing this for more than half of life in terms of competing in combat sports. So the religious part of his life is still very new. I mean, he's a new father. He's new religion and delving deep into religion. He listens to all kinds of different religious podcasts watching sermons online, really really into it. So these are still training wheels for in terms of that new part of his life, and he's trying to find a way for both of these things to coexist, and that's gonna take time. So I think that when we heard his speech over the weekend. A lot of people were quick to react and say, okay, those guys down. I don't know how we're gonna keep doing this. But I don't think that's only the clothes necessarily. I think it's. Just gonna take time for him on a human level, and as part of his human evolution to be able to get both of those battles of life to coexist in a meaningful bassin. So I agree with you on the reaction to it. I you on like, I think it's very commendable. What he said, you know to come out there and be as honest as he was in front of his promoter in front of the ticket buying fans to wear his his emotions on his sleeve. He has always been talked to him on many occasions, and you really talk to him about his newfound interest in in religion to do all of that is commendable in my respect from actually grew. And there was a part of me that kinda felt bad. When I heard that. And I was thinking like, wow, here's a guy that we've been watching for so many years. He's going to be the second greatest Canadian federal all-time. He's been fighting since he was sixteen. He's been fighting for fourteen years, and he still champion. He's not getting knocked out. But it's clear that he's evolving he's changing in front of our eyes. And it's also clear that you know, the fire inside of a MS is dimming a little bit. And there's nothing wrong with that. And so my immediate thought was like good on. Your mcdonald's. I don't know if you're going to retire, but you should probably take a little break in figure things out and see where you are.

"I can do it without getting crazy. I'm the same way as you. And I would rather see at the not because I am a fan too. I want to know what happens three to your point. Sometimes it's people your division. What a great time to scout before at least for me. Sometimes there's performances that inspire you or motivate you or make you think. Okay. Tonight's going to be so bad if they could go through that. I could do it too. Yeah. And actually, so one of the fight something new like two or three fights before me was Neiman gracie's fight against Edward hill. And I was such an incredible flight to watch and afterwards it my locker room with actually joining the Brazilian locker room, which is like on Leinen them, basically all resilient that we're on the card, and they're all Sela. Berating after their fly, you know, with the champagne bottle and everything and I had to us. We were sharing a bathroom zone have to walk through to get to my bathroom, and we so I ran into Neiman, and he was like girl jujitsu, don't forget us usually too. So he is giving me a pep talk before my fight on like. Yeah. I right. And then afterwards we saw each other again right before your guys interview, actually. And he said, I told you girls jujitsu alike. You're right. It does. There are certain bites that do get you really pumped up. So I enjoy watching them. Also, he got on my radar that night. I did not think you know, he was eight known head an oppressive record. But if you look at the opponents, I just didn't think he was ready for this. And he jumped in this tournament would showed a lot of courage, but you're going to have to take that. However, the draw comes and he got dealt from the bottom of the deck and Ruth was the dark horse a lot of people fighters, maybe yourself included. But we thought he could win this whole thing. Oh, sudden name is going to be fighting for a world championship in his very next fight. Should he win that? And win the whole tournament. Then he also is definitive championship. Which is you know is a big deal within the industry and not to mention he wins a million dollars. I don't think there's anybody in Bella tour right now with the contractual opportunity as big as neiman's now. I don't think so either. I mean when I first heard that that prize money, I'm just like and they started flying. And that what about me? Yeah. Yeah. Well, it's funny. You say that I was in a tournament while that was going on. And and we didn't have that that fifty cent and that shampoo will however that whole thing worked that was a part of it. So that is something really cool for the next crop. Speaking of same night that you're going to be fighting Fitch is going to be fighting Rory Fitch could come in spoil this party with his with his style committee. I'm not like a huge, Emma, Maynard or ban. You you talk about how your fan, and I'm like, okay now, I am. But I really I didn't start watching may until I start fighting which was only a couple years ago. So I to be honest. I actually didn't know who Fitch was until he started fighting for Balladur. But I I do from what I understand from what I've seen. He's a veteran of the spore. He's smart. He's a calculated fighter, you know. And he'll I saw his fight against Paul Daley. And I'm just cracking up down. Because Paul whole time was like. Ooh, Hoo to cover it, which I thought was alive. But so I mean, I I guess that's fitches styles. You know, take down here on pound do what you gotta do to win. So I I don't know enough about him to make a good productive. Yeah. And I'll tell you this. I don't know that I wanna make one either other than everything you said for your segment of fitches accurate and an ad that he's also very big. He did a little bit of time at middleweight up at one hundred eighty five pounds. So he slipped back down. He's good with the takedown. He might be able to frustrate ROY. I don't know that I'm picking him, but it's relevant to what we're talking about. Because whoever wins that not only leaves what the championship, but then they draw in immigration..

"Yeah. Like, let's call them. Yeah. Dallas great, very nice guy. He he gets a bit of a bad rap. Oh, I don't know. If he gets a bad rep. I think he gets a fair rap. Okay. He's a competitor. Right. It's gonna compete. He's gonna come out to be nice. I mean, you're the same thing said about Dylan that I do about been aspirin and they both went through. I can't stand this guy and now aspirins over. But he hasn't changed. He's the same guy out there. Ruffling feathers and calling guys out and looking for what's next and trying to build his own brand. They do they're doing the same thing. So don't tell me love and ask Renee. You hate Dylan, Dan, you can't you got all they're doing the same their competitors. Last thing I want to ask you Tron with. I don't see what's wrong with that says he wants to fight somebody a promoter puts a contract he signs it. That's that's the deal breaker though, right there. I mean that is the lemon test. If he comes out of talks all this trash and has and then won't sign the contract with and go ahead and hate him. He's signing the contract and he wants to compete. Gimme a venue and give me an opponent come on. On guys we want. Of course, I don't understand. Why people get so upset with him? It's bizarre to me last ask you just because you are the king at this Connor and Kirby has gone too far. It has right. It's too much. Yeah. Right. Just barely just barely. But it really just we've gone way past the line when I say just barely, you know, whatever it's confined to Twitter and one hundred characters contradict did come out and delete something which I thought was a show of. Okay. Okay. Okay. Yeah. But then he came back the next day with the plot twists. Yes. Yeah. Just yes. I'll leave it at that family. No need right. No. That's what are we building towards here. There's no fight. And that's the other thing. That's a little bit interesting as well. It appears that Connor is is on bookable right now, it appears that he's on -able for whatever reason. So I do wonder what his in game is because he is a bit of a chess player always after something. And I miss this one just a little bit. Because that's when you can real back in it any anytime star. Back up, but if b is out until September. Now, you're telling me that he's already on the books with either max versus Borei, they've even got a venue, and I don't know where Connor fits into this thing. And most important, I don't know when is it early next year? What is getting October November or was he just looking at a little bit of fun of world make too much of it. That's also possible to maybe send out a tweet, and that was the end of it. But to your question and just to be direct. Yes. June fourteenth, Madison Square Garden, New York City. It is chill Sunan versus the Machida. Is this the main event? They haven't announce it. Yes. Okay. Don't Danis against max, Humphry any other fights. Oh, there's Neiman Gracie..

He wanna ready? His first round match on the other side. It is Fitch versus ROY McDonald and Neiman Gracie comfortably yet, you think ROY takes you both those guys. Yeah. I think even though he got beat up pretty bad by gig ARD. I think he's mine wasn't in the game. When I watched the fight you can almost see it. It was kind of something missing. I could see that even before he did the post into Yuki. I dunno FIS intuition. But you can kinda kinda got the sense that something was missing mentally for him in that fight. But, you know, Rory I rate very highly as one of the top guys, you know, I've been in there with him. I've experienced it. I didn't do. Well, a mentally. I was well because because I'm a massive admire of him. And I know what it's capable of. It was a good experience for me. Thing. Roy takes quite comfortable. Okay. Do you think in think he'd beats Neiman Gracie? I think we're always in the final. Yeah. I think rose in the final. I think a rematch remain. Doug, slim is very interesting. I feel like I made mistakes and that fight namely star into fast and getting dropped in the first thirty seconds and playing catch up by Phil like looking back there with changes that I can make in this probably changes at Douglas could make that he feels the fire easy for him. But I feel like that that's going to be a good fight. And then okay. So then you get the rematch against ROY what a story book ending that. Is you win the and the million dollar? You would be Roy's a tough guy. You know? It'd be very very tough fight at half the train a lot more smarter intelligently than I did for the first fight. Why what did you do wrong? The. I just I don't know. I didn't take it. Seriously, not took extremely seriously. But I just didn't. Sometimes you go to be in there and. Yeah. Sometimes you go to be in the and also prior to the fire. Just I just felt my mind wasn't right. Really? But I met these things and I admit and I'd learn right before you walk down. I moved dry before. I walk. How I would just maybe to emotional. Wow. Maybe to motion and you just didn't feel like yourself remind myself. I felt a lot myself. I just felt like I was. I felt like I don't even know the feeling I was never really never. Well. I know I just laid out. I was a slight. I'm fine. Roy McDonald fires. I respect to lot. Sometimes he's what he I write him highly without being about kissing too much. He's one of the few fires. I would put in a category of people perhaps watched prior to the fi and admired. Okay. It was maybe one of those occasions. So are you relishing the opportunity to fight him again, or you dreading it? No, I didn't get up in the fog got choke town. But he's a tough guy that didn't seem there was much many openings in the short time not spent indicate with him. But there are no they're things I could have done in preparation better. That would have may be created more openings for myself. Do you like the fact that there's a million dollars online? Like does that do feel that motivates you a little more kind of the money because I've never been been. The recipient of such money. It's just a number to me at the moment does not spending. It does feel real light. It doesn't feel real art. From for me that the tournament begins. With Michael page. February sixteenth and victory there. And I'm looking no further than that. I just have to dispel allusion not list guy out. And then we'll talk again after the decision not feel quite right? Like you have to knock him out for this. No, I don't have to come out after knock him out. But I just believe I will. I just believe I watch just.

"Or even the telephone for them. Why is it a different timeframe? As like, I don't know. History of our sports says for the title, we go five, I don't know what. But I don't know why the main of take a lot for boxing. Sometimes how we score it. In title fights, have two more rounds opposed to the ten. I'm not too. Sure why it is. I think maybe more action. I think there's a lot of times you see three Brown fights. And you're like if we needed to more on that we need to more. I think it was a Jake Allen burger versus debut Santa's this sound familiar. Yeah. I think a long time ago it was like a three or and then after that the every everything's going to be five five minute rounds after there was a a main event that was three rows. And I said Almeida will be that just so it can be concluded a little bit more. It has worked out those out of Baltimore vent in Hawaii, which you are calling. And I believe it was Ed Ruth versus Neiman Gracie. Yes. Right. And since it's one hundred seventy pound tournament for the title or the champions in their Royal McDonald's. So he has to fight for his title every round of the tournament. So his matches are five five minute rounds. So everybody in the tournament has to do five five minute rounds because the champ is doing it to make a fair in that case fight was really close at route kind of ended up on the top and even had some near submissions and three rounds or over and went to the fourth. I think Neiman Gracie got the submission in the fourth round. It was concluded then, but it was so close to being concluded in the first three rounds. But we went to the scorecards it maybe could have went either way maybe hadn't even just because he had this emission tests. But someone could've seen differently. But in that case, I'm kind of happy it concluded, you know, kind of happy that went to the fourth round to see it conclude, by the way, did you name? It was that good. My goodness. I didn't respect. Oh my gosh. Transitions were amazing and the transition. I mean, the sport has comes full circle every time, I did you jitsu guy, then as the wrestler, and then as a striker learns the sprawl and brawl, and then there's guys everything but certain strengths come back. We see wrestling coming back again, you know, with with the meal church taking that and gone to call me back in there could be right now getting the down. But now we're seeing the come back to the jitsu guy. Someone who is taken down knows how to fight off his back and some of those. We're seeing now were amazing and the late locks are back in the sport as well. And Honey, y'all fighting on the card is S three submissions and three fights. Yeah. I did not. I look at Neiman differently. I you know, he was Gracie. And he was this. Okay. There's something special. I didn't know about about him. I didn't know he was that durable. Our minds of that fight of reminiscent to take downs on Ruth as well. Yes, you see the technique where Neiman was on his back so ED's in his car in Neiman took both of ED's legs. And then figure for them and use that to sweep. Yes. Never seen that in my life. Yeah. Do you know that I feel like I've seen some of the sore? You know, but I can't, you know, Jake's maybe done it to me that way where I felt trapped, but I've seen something like that. But it's one of those news words, you know, you're trapped in it. And you have your balance it's like a slow tip over. But you have no no base. You have no kick stand to help you out right there. I was watching from the outside going. Okay. I never thought to do that. Oh my gosh. Why would you not do that? And he turned him over. Like a child like you said nice and slow was just nothing. Ed could do in Nepal. Yes. Legs away. Trap..

"Or any grand prix has been when they make the announcement. And then you see maybe the pairings, and then they bring all the athletes I show, but Dan, of course, it kind of you know, these these guys can't fight. It's not like football where you can fight the following week or anything like that. So it just kind of slows down. That's the one part. I always like, you know, I wanna I wanna get through it. And crowned the champion are belt the champion. But they announce it when they all come out. I love it. And sure enough now we're at the finals itself all be pumped up on Saturday night. But it takes time. Yeah. One thing. I did like about bell tours. They didn't call him grand prix. They just call them tournaments was do you? Remember when they would do it in a month later that we're back quarter-final semi-final final. You know, what I mean that when you was kinda easier to keep up with these things kinda take a year. And that's the part where I'm like come on finish line. Yeah. Yeah. That's a little bit. I feel like I feel like ROY versus are the the Douglas McArthur fight and Neiman Gracie. Ed Ruth the first one Douglas mccarthur Cup. It just feels like it was six months ago. And we're not even done with the quarterfinal.

But the grabbed great names, and how about the Neiman Gracie story, nobody gave him a chance, and he's right there a million dollars from from fifty cent pretty cool. So. We're trying stuff. It's working. We'll see. But I think they could tighten up the schedule little bit better. Josh you got a point to bring up here on this whole thing. What what do you think? Yes. So fater today. The open matchup are open workouts told reporters, including MMA junkie. I'm reading the sun. I may chunky dot com. You said that he he's focusing where else. Yeah. Exactly. Right..
