"So I never got out of shape. But I feel like I'm in some really really good shape right now and find a guy like Martin. WHO's you know I'm planning on fifteen minutes in there but I every time I get into a fight whether I think I'm gonNA knock them on the first round a planned in a train for fifteen minutes and it's by no different. So I'm ready to go in plan on putting them out in the one. Now, I don't want to take attention away from Marlon Vera but the last time we spoke on, you mentioned to me the social media stuff, the interviews you have fun with it. It's never personal for you like jabbing at guys and you mentioned you're already one of the most talked about guys on the roster. You got the champion Peter Yang talking about you, but obviously you're. On social media with Cody Garbrandt and I think that's a fight down the road and everybody would like to see. But it seems like like you do have fun with that and want to ask your opinion on cody after kind of going back and forth and what was your what was your takeaway from that interaction? I don't think he wants to fight me I think I might be a little biased and I'm I. I mean I guess I just said that about Chito too but I don't think cody wants to find me I think he sees that fight. Tall On accurate throw straight punches, he throws hook. He's five, three, six, four. You know what I mean he don't want that fight. It is fun because you you said, you're the mental warfare aspect of it is a big part of it and in a way do you feel like you've already got into his head a little bit? Fit In his head. You know I think he probably watched watch you know my fight against. US and we didn't have any beef back and but I bet you is thinking. From avoid that by then I knock out. Eddie. And he knocked out a sons out but but like I said I think it's a podcast. I respect cody lot. He got knocked out not once not twice not. You know you get knocked out three times in a row then it comes back and fight the co a tough guy, and it's on sale and and he got the job done. and. So they respect their a one hundred percent but I, just think. My skillset versus hills his skill set I beat him. That's just what that's what it comes down to and obviously not afraid to express how I feel about that fight and he just gets hot headed in. You know obviously some talking crap. You're GonNa talk back though it just worked out. Good. You told me. Last that you know you're where you're at in your current now you know you're ready for the cody. GARBRANDT. To the world you ready for those top guys. But you'll because your schedule you want to stay active right now and you want to stay busy and it gets harder once you beat a top five guy because then at that point, you only have so many options front of you but if everything goes well next weekend and you beat Marlon Vera do you WanNa get another fight in this year? Do you feel like you know you do want to start targeting those guys? Are you just GonNa Kinda continue the way you've been going Super Hard to say definitely go out there and put Mon- away first and then kind of depending on the fashion put away. Put them away. Put away the way I think I'm going to nasty knock-out but put him face person canvas I think I think I can pretty much ask for whoever I want Just depends how that plays out. but definitely want fight. Leak one more time this year so. I'm extremely focused in in prepared a happen fight Marlins for fifteen minutes, August fifteenth and I'm not really looking past that date. Yeah. Loving.

We had limited edition, Jersey's one hundred of them For Two hundred dollars, it sold out its thirty nine seconds we auctioned off number four, twenty and sixty nine.

"And let's everybody help generous much. Thanks, thanks everyone. Why hope you all have a better sense? After listening to General Molly Dylan where the Biden campaign seize opportunities from an electoral college standpoint from a demographic standpoint. I thought our conversation about the senior vote of particularly important. How you can help and I really hope all of you that are listening. I'm sure a lot of you are already doing something, but do more or think about another something that you could do to help. Jen and her team helped. Get Joe Biden across the finish line, and you know I thought Jen's point about voting was really important, and it is really tragic to think that this election could come down to them fighting through with your help hopefully. Voters efforts, chaos, efforts, disinflation, and that just puts another burden on the campaign, so the way to think about it is okay. You've registered voter, or you've convinced someone who wasn't GonNa. Vote to vote or swing voters now decided perhaps to vote for Joe. Biden who is torn about their vote, but they get confused, or they're worried about their safety or You know. They told that you know early. Voting is different day than it is whether that's advertising from the trump campaign or from from Vladimir Putin so all of that is tragic, but the campaign has to deal with it. You know they've got organize their way through it, and that's going to require your help so. I'm sure many of you have already been motivated to help Joe. Biden reach out to voters. May contribution share content, but that's something that interest you and I'm sure it interest all of us. There's concrete things you're able to do to make sure people can exercise their franchise a properly and completely, so it's a good reminder that no matter what the polls say and I think Jen was really smart to caution. Caution all of us that these are going to tighten even if Joe Biden heads into the election with a small lead that leads at risk that support that he has doesn't materialize into enough vote in enough places, so we all need to be vigilant, not just to make sure we're helping Joe Biden but to protect our democracy, so thanks for tuning in and look forward to being with you guys next week..

"You've got the pandemic you've now got. The emergence of. The importance of the black lives matter movement again. Always important increased now so I. WanNa tip my hat to what you've done under just extraordinary circumstances so one thing I know you're wired this way, which is I think the best campaign managers you know their approaches if we're doing well, why aren't we doing better and if we're up by two? Why up by four right so you're always thinking through what could go wrong? You know even if you're leading optimistically so. When you genuine, you think about If you come up short I mean what? Is it that. Maybe there's five to six percent of voters like last time. Go to third parties is at that trump. I don't think there's any hope of trump. Gaining, any strength at all with traditional swing voters, but he just do such a great job of registration and turn out I'll Bushido, foreign. In Ohio that somehow he's able to pull out a win. really bringing out every. You know Maga- person. Is it that somehow trump convinces people. Yes, he's a complete total asshole, but he's tougher than Joe Biden for this moment. Like what what keeps you I know? There's a lot that keeps you up at night. Organizationally Resource Wise, but when you think about the big things here, what gives you pause? Yeah I mean. I think the number. The list is so long of running, you know. Sort of ignoring the top lines that we have at the moment, and always coming back to the fundamentals and focusing as much on. You know what we need to fix and get better It's how you know I'm I'm certainly wired the thing that I'm probably most concerned about honestly is voting in this country, and I think that if we saw what happened in Wisconsin which is the trump administration and local Republicans doing all they can to so chaos on not just to make it harder to vote which we have always had to deal with, but to create chaos to change.

"That is young people driving that and young. Young people of Color and for us. We're you know we as a campaigner, making sure that we are thinking about how reachable not just like from a tactical standpoint, but also having the conversations about where young people are and we know you know that the young people in particular have had a really tough run right? I mean from an economic standpoint to. Climate to racial stomach issues and violence to to gun safety. I mean you kind of look at those issues. We know how important it is to meet young people where they are, but doing so by driving on the issues that really truly impact their lives, and allowing an empowering them to have a voice and lead and creating an openness to have conversations and to be able to do that. you know from all the areas that were working on, so we really are focused on this. This is something I think very important I, also you know I think that there are a number of things tactically that we are doing as a campaign. You know a series of climate justice roundtables across the country to Thinking about, how do we talk about climate in you know in ways that the vice president did yesterday, which is as much about racial justice, as it is about climate, and all of these issues are so intertwined that young people have been speaking about for a long time, so I think that for us. There's a lot of work to continue to do here. and building ways from an issue based from a coalitions base from a digital in virtual. Virtual space, and then you know making sure that we are on the platforms that young people are on that. We are doing the work of working with our surrogates and giving a helping them help us give voice to who we are in that connection in having those conversations yesterday and we put out this tremendous video of the vice president, speaking to a young staffer in January, on our team about police reform, and and you know something that really. Again was in January, but just that one on one conversation in. The vice president, having a real rich discussion from a perspective that is very different than zone, so those are the types of things that we're going to constantly be looking to do and I. Think is fundamental to our building campaign. So another place where there's uncertainty for you, is whether those going to be debates or not so trump and his campaign or still maintaining, they may not do them. You Know My expectation is. They're just trying to maximize their leverage with moderators, and particularly if he heads into the fall behind you guys there, he's GonNa, WanNa, do, but do you think there will be debates? And if there's not, how would that impact your strategy in the fall? Well as vice president has said he cannot wait to get on the stage with Donald. Trump and. Our belief, and what we want is to be able to debate and we think that the American people are out that and. I think for for us as a campaign we will be prepared to work through. 'em Be ready for debates, and we will do whatever we can to make sure that they happen, and we think that that's a responsibility..

"Where you know, we have hundreds of thousands to millions of people tuning in and getting our contact you. You can't get that in a rally in the same way. We have figured out how to do. What I think is most core to what we need to do. Is Campaign in organizing which is built community and built connection and I think that that is critical in this moment, because that is what people are missing and lacking, and we say all the time you come for the candidate of the often stay for the experience, the relationships the volunteers the impact that you have so we've been hard at work to think about. About how do we fill that and fill that in ways that were meeting people where they are, and we're meeting them where they are at this moment, both in terms of what we're talking about, so we came out of the last two months we'll. We weren't doing a lot of heavy political work. We were a connecting with people. We were checking in on them. What's going on in their community? How are they feeling? What are they open to? How? What's their comfort level and engaging with the campaigns? What are they think they can do to amplify in their own communities? When we're building on top of that now that amplification we just talked about in that you just talked about that is so important asking our volunteers and our supporters to share content to be able to you know tell people in their own lives why they're supporting the vice president, or what's at stake? and we have seen IM- particular. If you look at the last two weeks are less growth has just been immense. We brought in over a million new people to our list that we are now communicating and communicating in a way that we weren't able to reach the same way previously, because people are finding their way to us, and also because I believe that they look at this campaign as a place to have control and real impact when they see what's happening in our country..

"You know everything from Joe, Biden's travel. You're not you're vice presidential selections. Travel your staff. You know can do a lot on the ground one where unfortunately we're going to be more lockdown, or there may be a blend point bending on the state. Just talk about that's a huge challenge. I imagine because you have to prepare for different scenarios. It sounds like you envision. Digital Versatile and relational organizing mean court, no matter what happens, but how do you? How do you think through a strategy of well if they can if Joe Biden can be on the road. You know six times a day. That's one campaigner can't. Just walk through a little bit of the thinking there, which again I think on the trump side. Maybe they're doing more of it than it appears, but it seems like they're going to almost operate as if the pandemic doesn't exist absolutely Look I think. It's just incredibly reckless. To be honest I mean I. think that you know the vice president believes we have a responsibility to ensure what we are doing is safe and there are ways to do things safe. I mean the vice president is traveling. He is doing events with real people on this campaign is doing the work of voter contact, but we are not putting people in harm's way to do so, and we think that it's as much about role modelling as it is about. Ensuring that our leadership in this moment is a campaign is also a reflection of our leadership as president, and I think that that's something that. You know you're you're seeing a Just an insane way with what trump is doing this weekend and not only that. Are they doing the event? I think their campaign yesterday put out some kind of. Statement suggesting that we're just refusing to do rallies of because we want to hide in the basement, which like you know I for every person I'd said that to me I would like them to look at the pulse, but anyway not that I wanna over torque that, but but still right there is, it's just like a to me. It is such a dangerous thing to do, and it is so confusing when a president is showing up in these communities, and saying come to this rally on my God, we have X. Hundred thousand people that have signed up when every single person. Knows that's not safe. When leaders in those states are pleading with advice for the president, not to do it, so I just think that's dangerous, but more than that. I do not think that we need that to win, and that's fundamental. It is not just that we are in a pandemic that the campaign has to operate differently. This entire country and.

"All the public research if it's accurate, you on attributes. Handling the next pandemic carrying about people like me. Race relations of you know. Biden has a pretty significant edge over trump. The one place where trump still has an edge is people. Trust him more to rebuild the economy. So how do you guys think about approaching that I'm not suggesting that you need to turn up eight point deficit into a twenty point advantage right, but you want to neutralize that as much as possible your point about the recovery. I think most of the people are going to decide this election who aren't registered who are registered who might not turn out that need to be mobilized or true swing voters? They don't know that he led the Recovery Act and you know given that that's the central question in this election who can rebuild the economy? It'll be really important for them to understand that not just that he did it, but what he did with right. But how are you guys thinking about the economic battle? Yeah, absolutely, I, mean look you know it is true to say that trump. You know has had a lifetime of a sense that you know. He's a successful business person complete bullshit, but he's pulled it off. I know right. Into Steph. You're fired I. Mean that certainly was a huge reason why? The American people. Are you know some voted him into office? But you know I think that the the economy was what trump was banking on as his Pass forward here on end. You even saw a you know. What was it two weeks ago where they were talking changed all their advertising to the great American comeback, coming out of the jobs numbers, you know the reality is though because of his lack of leadership. In what this crisis. At this moment he has significantly harmed himself in terms of where his strength has been and done that repeatedly, and also is missed the moment where this country is to suggest that there's great comeback when people are still hurting and..

"We are going to have the same message, but in terms of audiences in terms of program it's it's very complex and very costly, and it's costly from a staff and overheads standpoint. It's costly from an advertising standpoint, and you really gotta look at Okay well if I'm up in Florida. Does that have? Have to close pathways for us because it is so expensive, and that's when you start really trying to think through not just state to state, but market to market. We feel good We feel very good about what we've been able to do. Fundraising wise over the last several months, but we also know that we are at a significant disadvantage to trump so You know the money that we're able to raise is not just to allow us to. Do the work of advertising in having a broader footprint there, but it's also building our programs, and making sure in light of what's happening in this country with covid with the fact that I believe we will probably be organizing virtually and many respects for the entire campaign I think we will have physical traditional organizing taking place as well, but we've got to be realistic. They're going to be people. We can't reach in any way, but virtually, so, what does that mean? In terms of how we've built the campaign. How restructured it? How do you rise up different? Departments of the campaign. How do you think about the on the ground footprint and overhead in the things that we philosophically have believed about localized organizing at the core of success, certainly from our Obama campaigns you know that can't happen in the same way, and so there is an added complexity. You consider what that means, but there also could be some added opportunity where we're able to reach scale with some less cost based on some of the programs that were building or thinking about distributed organizing, thinking about digital organizing. That has some real opportunities, so we're measuring in both ways but. You, know we I always kind of questioned. How do you go all in? What does it take? And then what can we do? What's possible to get as close to their and frankly I don't think any candidate. Including when President Obama ran really went all in in a place like Florida. Because know you would be spending on the order of hundreds of millions to really do the work there at the size and scope of that state, as you would look to other places right. I mean. We were fully funded, but. To your point at a discount. So I think people. You reported really strong fundraising numbers in May. I'm sure supports. Years took great solace in that, but it's important for people to understand that eighty million dollars as great as it was like I'd assume to do Florida in this scenario. Even if you're careful and you get some deficiencies, you're talking forty or fifty million dollars right into minimum, so folks have to understand that if they have the ability to give, they have to keep giving because for you to fully execute Florida. North Carolina Zona and those three Midwestern states is an enormous amount of money. Before.

"So we're also being mindful of that, which is very complicated when we're in a bit more of a virtual operation there we're also looking at the other pieces that are going on in the states. You know there is a lot of work that's taking place in a number of these states whether it is. Our State Parties and You know our local organizations that are just much more organized and earlier built than historically, or you know in Arizona a really incredibly strong. A Senate campaign built off of a previously competitive Senate campaign that just allows foundation of work that you know it might mean for us if you put all of those characteristics together strong organization. MOTIV- motivated base. Real opportunity to work up and down the ticket. you know cost consciousness in terms of of markets. You know real reach in a way that trump's not able to do very strong contrast. You can kind of listed off a localized. Michigan is a great example of that Our numbers are reflected in that high in part because of trump and the way he's address Michigan. As much is our strength. They're so those are all the kind of characteristics in factors that we are working off of, and that's how ultimately we build those unique pass a victory, but I agree with you. We have to be very conscious that the historical pathways don't have to be our pathways. To get two hundred seventy electoral votes and I I'm not really all that interested in how we do it I just want us to do it. No Romance Yeah well I'm glad to hear you make the point about Roi Votes I think something particularly the donor community everybody's driving toward, and we have to understand it's art and science, and some of the factors you talked about aren't really going to be picked up on the science side of things so having a broad battleground map I think is mostly a blessing, but it can be a curse right because it takes an enormous amount of money, an enormous amount of people resources and And I think this is for people listening who are thinking whether they should give another twenty five dollars if they have the ability to do that or do a little more volunteer time. You'RE GONNA. Make decisions on whether you can go into a place like Georgia. Texas or Ohio base, not just in what you're seeing in terms of win ability, but sadly resource constraints right, so let's give people a win so Florida which is probably going to be a core battleground state for you. Let's talk about what it takes to win Florida because it's GonNa take more to win. Texas it's GonNa take a lot to enjoy just the types of money in the types of organization. You need to really contest a state like that. Yeah. No, I think that's such an important point. I mean you know it is as much as you're saying a blessing and a challenge and opportunity and a challenge for us with an expanded map.

"What people know about him and a reminder that there so a lot we can fill in around the vice president that people don't know. They don't know his leadership during recovery. They don't know. As much of his personal story, as as some of us that know him well, thanks so i. think that the numbers show a real opportunity, but they are inflated. They are also something that we always take with a grain of salt, and we do assume that there is going to be heavy tightening that moves across. The next several months, and and frankly we always talk about the fall being place when people start paying attention more right, the the Labor Day timeframe of of starting to really click in ask, voters are are looking to this choice. We have a much more polarized electorate right now. People have made their decisions a lot of ways, so there is less flex than we saw in sixteen but because of the uncertainty of what's happening with the economy in the country. I think we're going to be looking at that very closely as we get into the fall right, so let's. Let's just talk about seniors for minutes, so those are I think of everything. We're seeing right now. kind of the most surprising numbers and I think if they were to hold. It's almost a checkmate for trump, or really any republican and I agree you know Joe Biden I think has unique appeal to those folks. This is the part of the population that is than most affected and most concerned from a health standpoint. Do you think those numbers can stay where they are today and I guess more importantly? What are you guys planning to do to to try and accomplish that? Well. Look I, you know I again. I! Think is as you and I were just talking about I think. Things will get back to a little bit more closely aligned to their natural state as we move forward but I I think that the numbers the polling. We're seeing an Iowa. That has it closed? Ohio Florida were were ahead I. Mean there's no doubt real impact on the top line numbers because seniors are looking more favorably at vice president. Biden than they are at trump. And You know I think for us. You know this is my philosophy with everything. We've got to do the work to make sure that we maintain these numbers, and we make this not just a one time inflection, but a sustained. Place of strength and to do that I. Think it is. You know it's in some ways it's it's relatively simple. It is driving our message. It is running our game plan we believe this race is a referendum on Donald Trump. And we know that Donald Trump does not want that to be the case at the same time we know we have to make the case for what we're going to do as President we're going to have to tackle the economy and jobs we. Are doing a lot of work on vice president's been laying out his position on. Reopening and he says that you know Donald, trump's plan for reopening is is one point. It's to reopen, and there's not much work to support that I think that there are real. Concerns that Americans have seniors and others about trump. About who's fighting for About the fact that you know there is what I would say is Craft Recovery You know that nobody even knows who got the small business loans..

"Connected Arizona's right up there, though at this in the same breath. As is is North Carolina and as you mentioned Pennsylvania obviously an important state for the vice president of place that we have a long history, but donald trump spent a ton of money there and has spent a Lotta time He did that in sixteen in stayed there, so none of these places. Can we take for granted, but I do think that as you look at our strategy, we have to build a customized approach in each of these places. These states are very different. They require different level. Level work. There's always the question that campaigns have to answer. How do you go all in in a place like Florida or In a Pennsylvania, very significantly large populations and incredibly diverse populations that there's not even one statewide fixed to how you you put those states on the math and keep them on the map and we know that those states in particular are going to be places that trump's going to have to fight it out with us, but you know noticeably some of the recent advertising. That has been doing is is less than those offensive states more on showing a Biwa and Ohio, and so we're very mindful of that as well though I will say to your earlier point. We are not up fifteen. In Michigan. We are not up fourteen you know and I just select prevent as you would say the bedding that is to come when those numbers narrow. An inflated point in terms of what polling picking up and you always have shaped dwelling with a grain of salt, but this is going to be very close race. Everyone needs to understand that it's going to be a close race nationally. It's GonNa. Get tighter. It's GonNa get tighter in these states, and that's what we expect and we'll be prepared for but we are not up forty. So I WANNA. Go back to the states and let's talk about the Poland because. You know. The leads that you have right now are larger than we have in twelve, but as you remember when you were serving as deputy campaign manager for Barack, Obama. You know in September of that year particularly after Romney's forty-seven percent. You Know Gaffe you know we were leading by..

"We're going to be able to be on offense the cycle because of the map looking at and that we think it favors vice president. So you know the way I approach that is first of all looking at the pathway that allows us to get to our winning coalition, so you have a handful of states that are states. We need to protect their states. We want an eight and twelve and sixteen. These are states like New Hampshire Colorado Virginia Nevada. Many people have said these are safe states and to be honest with you. I I don't buy that they're. They're only going to be safe if we do the work to ensure that they will, but they have been in our side for the last three presidential than we feel good about that, so if you you know if you look at those states that gets us over about two hundred thirty electoral votes, and then you go to the traditional states we talk about a swing states you know, these are the places that are You know we don't have to all them. we won in two, thousand, eight and twelve. Most of these lost sixteen. The Wisconsin's Michigan's Pennsylvania's Florida's does these are the states that are very polarized electorate They are swing states because they are swing states, and they go back and forth That really allows us to make sure we're contemplating. What's that Tipping Point State? You know what happens. If we're putting two or three of these in play certainly you know, depending on the number of electoral votes allows us to have a difference based on two. We need three. We need four. Do we need to, but then I just add to? This really does feel like a a map that is broader than that. Swing states and states like Arizona in particular, but also Georgia and Texas and certainly if you're looking at recent polling you know, are really in play and Arizona is truly a battleground state for the first time by my way of looking at and it's both from the trends. We've seen that. Go from twelve to now where it is increasingly getting better for Democrats. We saw Maricopa county where Phoenix's go for a federal candidate Democrat for the first time in eighteen, and there's just been an extraordinary amount of foundation with strong candidates, strong Democratic candidates mark, Kelly running this cycle, I that. That I think really gives a significant advantage, so you know looking at that map makes us feel like we have a number of pathways to victory..

"Everybody it's David Puff Welcome to campaign. Hq I'm not going to really do much of an opener at all. Because we're going to talk to somebody who knows a lot more about what's going on than I do so geno molly. Dylan is a veteran of democratic politics progressive causes. She's led campaigns led organizations. I worked very closely with her back in in two thousand and eight. When she joined us, she'd been working for John Edwards to help lead our battleground states effort, and then she served as her deputy campaign manager for President Obama in two thousand twelve managed better works campaign during the primary this year now as Joe. Biden's campaign manager. She's actually was a guest on this podcast a few. Few months ago after she had been better works campaign manager, and was talking to her about the race, and how she saw the primaries, but she signed on to run Joe Biden's campaign a few months ago and has really had to do a heroic job, because it's hard enough to pivot from primary to general into go build a general election campaign particularly when you're facing incumbent president with all the money in the weaponry that trump's built, but to do it in the middle of pandemic where you've got to figure out how to run a campaign, maybe all virtual. Maybe it's a blend, so she's really had to do a really unique job that no one's had do previously so I wanNA talk. Talk about some of that, but really just go deep with Jen on the race. We see all the things happening in the country. The way we've mismanaged the pandemic response stated the American economy trump doing all the wrong things around his response to George Floyd's a murderer in protests around the country He's holding this rally in Tulsa over the weekend, which could be deadly, Israeli in American history. Let's hope that's not the case, but you know the remedies so much of this. It's not going to solve all problems of course, but we have to get this guy out of office, and so how the Biden! Campaign sees the campaign today where they see the electoral college how you all can help. Help what are their biggest concerns I think this is all not just critical to whether the campaign wins or loses, and even for those of you that are living and breathing the campaign. It's really important to the history of the country in the world, and so I'm I'm really to Jen on the program to talk about where she sees the race how she's planning for different scenarios in the fall whether they'll be debates or not, whether there's going to be a lot of in-person campaigning or not, and talk about some of her bigger concerns, and some of the opportunities are seeing there,.

"The high stakes that is does and I think one would say. You convinced me but boy. You Know Peter, Yawn and Al Jemaine sterling are pretty awesome. Yeah, yeah, so then Dana says what he says, okay. Marla Mariah's wins Dana. You said that you know this fight had huge stakes. Mariah's one all the things he did, but morass one now. What well you know we're going to go with. We sued overseas Josie Aldo. Hold on a second, but Mariah's one. Yeah yeah, but guess what they're fighting in Brazil and. You know we we WANNA do this for all. These had a great career and again they're fighting in Brazil and Henry Want Aldo while right. You know starling in Yawn. Maybe they can fight each other. I don't know what whatever? Right cool. although can't fight dominic steps in. You know again I yawn You Know Alderman now. The farm, the wrist fucking. Immigration everything you can hear everything you could possibly here along the way now it's cruising pseudo. Who Wins Pseudo retires all right now. What I mean that should be sterling versus Yawn instead. Sterling has to fight San Hanging. Yawn still fighting Aldo I. mean come on already. It's it's borderline ludicrous. There are so many angles that you could look at it I mean. USA versus Russia so many things that you could tie this fight and the interpreted each other. You have to guys that aren't really. GonNa say much. You know like Peter Janta a younger fighter jet. Zelda veteran like how you really talk trash the Josie, although anyway like. It. makes any sense and you know how crews has been saying. Hey, they stopped at early and he's a legend. We can say he's a legend. And all those legend put the to legends against each other, whoever wins, will then get spoken to about a chance to compete for the title again since who'd gone. But I. Just don't see why it. I I still can't get it through my head man. It's it's the weirdest thing that sterling. Should have been fighting for. The title should have been the number one option for the title, and is only now just been talks in in in the conversation. It's just not fair is really what it is. It is not fair now. Cody garbrandt defeated fail a son sow beautiful walk-off punch, cody Garbrandt, great look. There wasn't too many times. If any that sense, look good in the fight. He was a little bit behind step behind. he was reacting to Garbrandt Garbrandt was leading the dance Garbrandt look good i. mean he just looked in? The Punch was beautiful and that was that. He looked good because he mixed. What he's really good at doing. With patients that I think he learned from Mark Henry. The only one thing I can say about his performance nitpicking. Is that last punch that he threw. He kind of slouched down. Through from his waist, and as devastating punches that was awesome. Sow was throwing one of his own. And had he been accurate, he would have hit cody before cody hit him. And that's the type of blow because cody through it with his left hand down completely just leaving Jal wide open to be hit I don't WanNa. Say He got lucky because that was a hell of a punch that he threw, but that's something that I think when you're watching tape and you go back you. You just can't do that against the Creme de la Creme. I agree. GARBRANDT definitely shoots up. He's not gonna be able to overtake all these other names, and I'm not GonNa go through it. I think y'all can figure it out. It's pretty much genres Aldo I'd say sterling's probably next, and then the next wave will be someone like Garbrandt Garbrandt will have to take a fight sterling probably waiting it out. An exciting division I don't know o'malley. Obviously now he's he's in. He's in the running by be the most exciting and then Amanda. Nunez defeated Felicia Spencer fifty, forty, four across the board I mean it was just the whitewash. She out wrestled her. She out jude her couple tosses she out. Ground impounded her. She out striker I mean. She probably even looked better than the Cardio Department at the enemy she it was a beautiful performance top start to finish. I'm curious to know I'm sure a lot of people trying to figure out what's next next from end and NS. But really and maybe this is just the psychology at that I'm attracted to. What's next for Felicia Spencer if you're her? And you fought the champion and your division. And loss away you lost. How I don't even know as a as a human being I can go back in the gym and just say more camping all I'm ready to go again like man that it literally looks like somebody that's been doing your job years more than you. I mean that wasn't even close I think I can answer for you. For sure. It's demoralizing. It's but I think a man does probably towards the tail end of her career. If you notice her partner Nina. Answer off is carrying their baby. And So, you know she's GonNa. Be Apparent soon and. I think she's proven everything she can so really at the end. It's just about banking some big checks and. Maybe, one more super fight against Valentinus SHANECO. Kind of cleaning out her division. We were talking about earlier at thirty five. There's. Aspen Lad if she beats Sarah McMahon. She'll be ten in one. Irene all Donnas.

"Tampa was just like okay. You were kind of kind of expecting Tom to not not return. Even those who might have held out for thinking he would never leave but gronk going to. That's the issue that that's that's the one thing that Glock comes back and he's going to join Tom there and at the reunion happens. They're not a new England. That's the tough swallowed to to take right there. It is but I think that You know I think that Rob Gronkowski. I really think that he was not thinking about going back in and and playing. I really do think that he was retiring. I I would love to know you know. I talked to find out what the inside story was. I mean The one of the reasons he's gone Tampa and course correct me. If I'm wrong is that they don't think that he's GonNa have to do as much blocking as he was going to have to do. In the in the Patriots offense is that a is that a real reason. You think which I don't think so I just think that He wasn't feeling physically up to it or wasn't physically mentally up for being Going through the you know the the rigors of a season where everybody's aiming for his knees and below or his waist to his knees and go through another Bella check crucible. I don't think he was up for that now that he's feeling a little bit better. He misses the game he sought and TB twelve. Calls him up and says how about you. Come with me down to Florida Like everybody retires. He spent some time in Florida. But you with me and with areas and and and off we go. I think the answer was thousand percent. Yes that's what I. Yeah I we were interested. I'm I'm writing so in addition to acting and I am doing this new show. Snow peers served on Sunday night on. Tnt at at nine o'clock but I'm also writing in running the show. I'd written on shameless for a bunch of years and then Got More into the writing and now I'm running a show that's going to be done in Atlanta the James Harrison. We just cast to former Nfl players in this show. Okay Miles birth and James Harrison. And they're both playing wrestler in the show. It's about an independent wrestling promotion in Atlanta not in Atlanta in Georgia. And the show starring Stephen a Mallon Alexander Ludwig. We're just stoked while here's the thing James Harrison is when when you pay him you need to pay him in cash in an envelope. Will you do that for everybody? I will do that. I listen I was apparently what he's used to on occasion. If you follow Games instagram. You know that he works out quite a bit. I'm not going across. James Harris. No understood understood so so again the manor on occasion. Apparently there's an envelope painting Tim Cash could be. He's got to report it to the. Irs that's all I care about. I just want I want the road to be paved GONNA want the military to be able to be funded. That's all there you go Mike o'malley and before we do turn to Snow Pearson a little bit era Let's linger a little bit more on your writing creating show running abilities and what you did With Lebron James and Maverick Carter. I stars survivor's remorse did you. Did you actually sit down and work with Lebron or vice versa? At any point in time during this process I mean well I mean you say what what what I did for them. It's more what they did for me what you know. So you know. Maverick Carter who? I met Through Tom Warner I. Tom Is of course that one of the red SOx owner Liverpool soccer. May you know made his name producing television shows and I had written some stuff for him. That didn't go when he introduced me to Lebron Maverick and he said would you be interested in in writing and developing this idea. This premise that they have on what it's like to grow up in a place where you're your struggle. You come from nothing in an and then you you have success and yet all the people that you love and you cared about and you grew up in are still stuck in that place so That's where the notion of survivors more came from. Which is you know maverick. Carter is the bronze business partner. He's the one who introduced me to that phrase. I had heard of you know survivor's guilt in in something. That happens when you know a ship. Wrecker Plane Crash Live. Someone else is you. Don't know why but attaching this idea this concept to growing up in the projects and getting out and then feeling obligation to continuously throw life preservers to other people who are still there. What's different about that scenario? Is that those folks They're still there. They haven't perished. You can help them with a car. Payment with a health insurance payment with alone and it never stops and Especially if big hearted like Lebron Maverick are and so they came to me. I I wrote this show. I went down. I flew down to Miami and actually did a table. Read of the show with Agron and Maverick and And Randy on a couple of there. I think his wife's van or read a role it was. It was a real trip to be down there. Reading the script with those guys but What what I loved about working with Ron. Abbott is that they said if it's happening in the world did happen on this show and so on survivor is more than we did. Four Seasons on stars and Lebron was in an episode. Maverick was you know really involve as executive producer You Know Lebron couple times. It was great but they were very very supportive of everyone. And you know to have that kind of support. That wind at your back was a great thing for me. As a as an emerging writer. That's a look man. And obviously maverick Carter and Lebron James or are huge Obviously in their own right in their own worlds and then to to enter with you and yours and it's interesting you got you got to introduce them from by Tom. Werner owner of the Red Sox Often breaking any news to you. The reason why. Mookie Betts is a dodger. Is I think mookie. All of Tom's Roseanne money as every penny of his Roseanne money and all of John. Henry's investment dollars. It's suddenly. He's now a dodger. I think that's what he wants to like. Why are we doing on? He hasn't played. He has played game. Dodger yeah okay. Ever play games the talk..
