"Thank you've made the changes that you need to make in order to win the fight and in truth. The fight doesn't even become close. That's difficult you start to question whether your talent level is good enough whether you're training is good enough whether you can ever get back to the level that you've wants work but what i hear after the ryan span fi is a fighter. That's confident in who. He is a fighter that feels like he's gotten his groove and a fighter that can now look back at the rockets. Find say you know what. I kind of see what i did wrong there. I've correct some things. I think it's time to get that opportunity again. And he knows that. Now we're both to top fighters in his division. Oh and by the way the dude standing at the top of the light heavyweight division is no longer to king is no longer a guy. That's run through everybody. It's no longer a legend. It's a guy who we know through. His career has been very beatable. Here is my chance. And so i love this about fighting that you get to call out who you want and like he said. Hey man merry christmas to me because it seems like alexander rockets wants to fight as well. Yeah he does. Rockets was immediately accepting. Oh anthony smith and that's what you gotta do when you get be in your on a downturn you go back you fix things you get the ship going in the right direction and you head back down the path of chasing down the championship. Now what you don't see very often is a lot of people. Say that last guy that beat me is the one that i want to beat in order to propel myself. That's that's crazy. That seems as though it's crazy right you would seem to want to be away from that guy. Right is what anthony smith is. Listen minutes and og gene. Dues fought over fifty times. And he's not even his mid thirties early thirties. The dude is a savage and he's an og smart. I worked with him at the desk at times. Anthony smith the very smart guy in regards to fighting breaking doll. fighting stomach. factory acts is a very good team. Does this sound familiar.

"I think i got some big decisions to make in my career and figure out where we go from here. You know. it's super frustrating. To to lose to a guy that the that you feel like you can be once. I got inside of the kicking range. I i didn't. I didn't feel like he was boxing. Me the second round on as far as the striking. When i felt fine once i adjusted the range. I got to the clinch. Like i wanted to. You got to his body. Just i wasn't able to finish the a lot of those spots. So i don't know one eighty five still really tough. It's a total lifestyle change in its year round. It's not like one of those things where i can get into camping in. Change change my diet and cut down. It's a complete lifestyle change. Which is i guess. That's one of the options and all the guests. The other options is takes time often in gear bigger. So i don't know got some things decided. You know when you look at anthony smith here right. He's very concerned and he has. A lot of questions are seating. But let me tell you why these questions were going through his head rockets. I'm sorry i called him breakage before. Alexander rockies is a prospect right in when you lose a championship fight and you have a young hot guy on his way up the rankings. They will put you in front of him. Almost as a stepping-stone. So when ashley smith loses this fight he starts to see himself as maybe a bit of a gatekeeper right here. Don't want that in your career but then you lose to work rock edge and then they put you in there against clark another guy who was doing good in time prospect beef now with jimmy crew. Who's supposed to be the man on his way up your beat him then. You put him in that ryan's plan another young garden. You beat him. So anthony smit who may have been thinking of himself as a gay people a year ago has now shut the door on three prospects and that is why he was so emotional because we start to lose two guys john jones. Losing to anymore you lose to a guy like rocket who you don't see as the man at the time you start to question things but he seems to have gotten it all right and when you watch him in there. He's five with more confidence. Never seen that spent fight with no. He's absolutely fighting with more confidence. But you also have to think of where. The time line was at that point. Dc you lose to. John jones you lose to go over to sarah and then now you you lose two rocket. It's you're starting to think to yourself in my evening even a championship contender tool five anymore. And now when you start contemplating life which is what he's doing right. He's concentrated like maybe i need time. All maybe i can't even compete at this weight anymore. That's difficult you know. What are and. I'm glad you said that because that is seeing guys in real time only say how fighting is the most naked. You could be right right most on display. You see that one. Anthony smith right. You've seen in a real time a guy trying to make these decisions because even though you lose a game you're set and you lose a fight. Still stick that cameron you face. Your task wood processing does that. You really can't do an and that's the hard part for me. It's not only that you're vulnerable in the sense that you're there for the world but you just lost you just lost the fight and when i listen to what he was saying after the rockets fight here is what i hear. I actually made the adjustments. I thought i needed to make to win. I was able to get within kicking range. Because if you remember that fight to lay kicks were very heavy early right. The the loan range fighting was going in alexander rockets way very early and he felt like he changed it so to feel like you make adjustments..

"He did it was an old man a man that should not have been in there with detour hats off to veto for going on door when he was supposed to do. I didn't this was never a knock on veto. Always about vander. I just thought vander would get it done. And he didn't. It was sad is very sad that these guys you know. We always talk about our legends on their backs. I feel like that was the most extreme case that i've ever had to see. And i saw larry. Holmes beat on muhammad eileen right. I heard stories about muhammad ali last few training camps where they wouldn't let the cameras at there anymore because sparring partners were beating him up. That was horrible to see holyfield. Go out that way. But when we talk about legends not only do our legends fight longer today. Never have some of them seem to turn back the clock and we saw that last week. In which your boy anderson zillah and we saw that when he beat julio cesar childish and then he goes in knocks tito ortiz would a beautiful hook dude it. The hook bank stepped off. Could cheat a one more time and knocked down. How real is this. How real is this anderson. Silver reboot that we're seeing the octagon because ryan i'm buying. I'm buying all the stock in the end and silva boxing that we see today because he looked phenomenal against tito. Listen i think. I expected anderson silva to look phenomenal against tito ortiz. In a boxing match. I think anderson not even a question was the more skilled striker inside the octagon and having seen him in ring against chavez. You knew you know this guy. And this legend has actual boxing skill. And he just displayed that. I mean you could tell. It was the ole anderson silva when he would lean against the octagon and move his head. Tito stolen babyhood babyhood baby hook anderson duck swan. Yeah hits like. That's who anderson silva is like. I am in no way shocked by that what i'm interested in is. Where does anderson silva take this now because boxing has changed. Boxing is no longer just about the canaveral alvarez. Boxing is no longer just about who can be champion. Whether it's wbo abcd or whatever it is the type of organizations and belts that they have bossing has turned into now people wanting to see guys fight that they're interested in so you could be as good as but crawford is now and understand that he's a trained killer within the ring or you can be anderson silva or you could be jake. Paul at people are actually in tune and want to see this happen so the next step is what who does anderson suva fighting next. Is it another boxer. Who is a little long in. The tooth is it. Someone knows that crosses over from the mixed martial arts world and want to make some more money or why. Not jake paul. That's the do that's fighting. Who is over the hill former. Mma fighters anyway anderson silva is one of the biggest names. You could possibly get so. Do you think that. Jake paul should now take on anderson silver. He seemed to take a step up right been aspirin. I feel like in the boxing match. I could at least last right tyron. Woodley the guy who hasn't not someone out and years hasn't won fight in and wasn't necessarily a true striker. He had power but wasn't necessarily true striker. When you forty listen. I've punch things lately. They don't really move as much as they moved. When i was twenty seven and so now to anderson silva who shown with inside within inside ring he can hold his own. He's one hundred ninety pounds. And i believe the he beats jake paul. And that's the reason jake. Paul doesn't wanna fight him because you can't get beat by dude who people perceived to be that direct.

"He went in loss to brock lesbian. So it's going to also be on then took men in the wwe. Take care of gable book him like an absolute monster so that when he does decide to come to the ufc. He has a massive fan base. Yes in the money will represent that. That's why brock did so well. Brock never fought in a ufc for less than seven figures even when he was one in one zero already. He was making seven figures. He was such a massive song but gable needs to insist that he is booked correctly in the wwe because nothing hurts more than seeing him go from the olympic games winning ncwa titles to getting pin. My some random do right in the middle of the www from getting pin by like some guy like me. They're like you can't let me tell you. So there are guys ryan. There are guys that. Wwe that are not even like you there. Two hundred pounds and you remember when the one back in the data one. Two three kids razor. Ramon raise six kids. Like five seven removes the demand right propelled kid but that could kill a guy like sees. Well i'll tell you. What if i ever get into the wwe. I'm bringing back a ravishing rick rude because that was my goal. That was my guy. But we're talking. When you speak a brock lessner you you speak of an icon. You speak with name that when you say this name. People who understand whether it's combat sports who love wrestling. They know that. Nate evander holyfield is another guy that when you say that name people who love boxing you know that name evanger holyfield was one of my first champion it was one of the dudes that my dad look right. The first the first boxer that actually got into was was mike tyson for. I thought mike tyson was was the baddest man to ever walk the face of the earth when he loses to buster douglas. I was like. Oh that's just the blimp. you know he. He had a tough life. He had a tough marriage and he's gonna come back and start bacon. Excuse eight start making excuse. I definitely started making excuses. But then when you watch and fighting vander holyfield and you see that type of skill that type of toughness and the way that the way that he fought. Mike tyson made mike tyson bite his ear and then now to watch evanger holyfield near sixty right to to see him even in training to fight obviously not be where he so post to be to get a fight sanction and then the watch him walk into the ring against veto bill for and get kayode in such a short time in such embarrassing fashion. It was said to me. I'm going to be honest. i have. There's nothing about me that likes this. There's nothing about me that thinks it's ok and in playing football. When cussin' protocol became a huge deal. I remember sitting in. Nfl pa meetings as an executive committee meeting member. And saying i come from a time where we weren't protected like this where we didn't have the information like this where toughness and showing people that you were tough. Were playing through. Injuries playing through dizziness. Or whatever it is. And so. I said to them you are going to have to find people to take care of people like me to make decisions for people like me when i can't make those decisions for myself because i wasn't brought up that way i didn't learn that way. I didn't train that way. We needed somebody to make a decision for vander holyfield that he couldn't make for himself and they did not do it. And that is sad and it pisses me off and it should have never happened. Dc you know what's crazy is i don't care in didn't care how bad event and looked on the pats. I still thought and publicly said it regardless. He'd beads veto bill for the boxing match. Which i think that shows my ignorance in not understanding where vanda holyfield is today I'm still remembering the guy that you remember the guy that would get all beat up and still go forward instill banner battering bruce break you down. I remember that. A van to holyfield. So i was hoping that if i squinted hard enough. That guy would show up on saturday night..

"When you look at it now it becomes reality because you were against it a bit do you. Kind of look back. And and in retrospect go you know what he goes there. He builds his name. Did he gets money wherever he goes after making his www no. I think this is what the new age of name image and likeness is doing for some of these college athletes and we weren't necessarily r. c. r. c. I want to tell you this. I spoke to gables manager. The other day are just randomly talking in this dude said gables in the seven figures too. So when you say. Nfl when you say name image and likeness rc gables. In the seven figures to go back to the university of minnesota. How in the world can you not go and do that. No he's he's in. He's in the best place possible. And i think this is finally a step up from what we're seeing from football players. When guys like coaches like nick sabin can say that his quarterback bryce young even before he'd ever started a football game at alabama was nearing seven figures in money from name image and likeness. And this is. I'm going to say this to this. Is the nc double a.'s. Folk they didn't want to be involved. Not i'm serious. This is what happens when mark emmett who i think runs one of the worst organizations in the history of organizations who never wants to be a part of inish thinking thing that wants to wash his hands of the covy at protocol. I wanna wash my hands of the name image and likeness. So you know what we got. We got the wild wild west and guess what in the wild west gunfighter get shot and so now you got gable stevenson and guess what he has he has the biggest gun dc. He's a guy who's a answer national star right a guy who is a medalist and olympian. Who is also really dane. Good and so now you get an opportunity to make this type of money off of your name off of your image off of your likeness off of your talents that you have earned and have every right to earn and go back to school. This is a no brainer. i remember early on. We were talking about him after the olympics. And you would like go to the wwe goto the wwe my very little brain. That's not a big brain like your brain gets to go on tv. Great things with warrior was like. Yeah but you know he go to the to the ufc. This is such a better decision. You get to go somewhere be protected you get to go back to school and do exactly what you need to do. And you getting pay top dollar gables davison. I was wrong. I was selfish. I wanted you to come to the ufc. So i got to talk about you all the time and watch you rise to champion boy if you don't go where that wwe championship belt and stack your paper and go back to school and get your paper..

"What's up guys gordon. The dc in our seat. We'll get into the weekends. You have ufc card a little bit. But i after teasing a move to gable. Stevenson has made his decision and he signed with the wwe less week. We'll talk about it you know. It's not just all winning right. It's about winning. It's everything right. You can't just win anymore. You said earlier. You've got to win and then you've got to plan the next step. It's not just enough to win fights and get on mike and go or whatever the you have c. says i'm down for it now. You've got to have something extra. You got to have a little bit of something to you. That makes you separate because ryan even for a guy like trevor lawrence a guy that plays football. You gotta helmet on man right. You know you can still hide a little bit in fighting you are as bare to the world as you could be any sport. So every mistake is amplified. Every time you get slept are knocked out in ryan defied because people are so in tune with what you're doing inside the octagon and the guns a great place to live in a great place to try to build a career but our see there are many other ways to try to make a living. Obviously we're talking about football. We're talking about basketball. But for gable stevenson the olympic champion heavy rainfall just in the summer olympic games. Right it was bela tor ufc wwe aws. Imagine in everyone else gables. Decent has made his choice gable. Stevenson is going to the wwe. I said this a while back. I thought that's the move..

"There's also guys out there right more inventory. There's also a paulo kosta nominee matchups ups and he could take in order to further his title contender ship. But i think this one works the absolute best. It's an interesting time for the middleweight. Divisional because now you've got a whole bunch of guys jumping along the top that could potentially challenge gives a question for you. I have a big big fight or question for you though. Is there a fear. If you're taking the brunson winner or you're fighting against cost of tory that you could lose that losing that fight in the same way and losing to robert whitaker puts you out of potential at least didn't have you with that next step to fight for the championship. If i'm jared kenan near should i be worried about that and saying even though the money is good in the money is needed. I rather wait on that championship. Bout because it's more is more money and opportunity to be even richard. And i've ever been if i win. You know the thing about jared cannon near is that he's not afraid right in people kind of wired differently like in football ryan you guys rush out to a your eight and seven you know you gotta go to nine seven to make the layoffs. There's no right not play that team that might be elected tendon five. You know what i'm saying. You gotta go plant. And i think the same thing would finers right. We gotta go in just fight. The fight injured near isn't really worried about his position. Because even in losing to rob whitaker his stock roles he broke his arm. He broke his okay. A battery it was able to go five rounds with the former champion and be competitive in a lot of spots so that one win over. Kelvin gasoline still elevates jared cannon near to a position where he could challenge for title but there until has a great mouthpiece right guy loves to tall. They're brunson's on the best ryan of his entire career so if he wins one more over one of those guys it truly would catapult him into a legit title shot challenger against john in one visual it would be to see the bees that is jared cannon near fighting the tall and he athlete that is israel at assignment. It'd be fantastic to see those guys mixed up in the octagon you know last weekend. Whatever we did the show we.

"You're thinking to yourself i just lose to. Robert whitaker had an opportunity in the number one contenders fight to show that. This is where i go that this is the next step for me. And you're getting a guy who knows how the bank you're getting a guy who gives you an opportunity to show that you're back to show that you're recovered from injury and this is a fight that both of these men needs to win. I think if you're kevin if your gasoline you need to win this fight just to show that you belong in the top tier of your weight class. But if you're a jared ken near you can win this fight a show that you know what maybe i'll get one more fight and i'm mixed up for title especially when you have a champion. That's running through people. The way that the champ is and you know what for canada near in. I'll be calling this fight on saturday. So i gotta be very careful with my analysis but for cannon here. It's very important for him to win in the sense that he can put himself right back entitled contention because yes at you called him. Soul brother jared right. He was looking forward to fighting. Jared jared cananea can do something so impressive in may immediately. Just put him right back on the radar because the champ has not been so gung ho about five rob whitaker four second time. Here's what also plays into this fights gasoline to show that he's still can compete that he's still relevant doppler decision but not on these two fighting next week. Derek brunson is fighting against darren till so it's like you have a bit of a middle way logjam between four very high level competitors fighting very recent when the champion and robert whitaker our kind of waiting for their rematch. Massive stakes in this fight this weekend. Big stakes for gasoline. Because he has to show that he's still belongs. But also for jared cannon near man it really does shorten a path to a championship fight against israel. You know it's crazy. We we get an opportunity to talk about the champ. And i think the champ is route out of sonya is one of the more entertaining fighters inside the octagon but also some of his antiques. Maybe outside and in our great like maybe the greatest taunting ever was after he knocked out following. He knocked out follow coast that cost of and you know he gave them. Let's just say it sound. It looked like two live crew was playing arena at that time right and so now this happens and you know what. Don't they see if israel outta sonya does this in the nfl he's going to get a taunting libro matter of fact he does that. They made no amount of the game because right now they're throwing flags for anything. You can't even get a guy's face or guy's face photo deuce or have a good time but you had a pretty classic rent. Dc about how you felt about the nfl and these new rules. I mean let me tell you some are watch one in preseason games the other day kid. It's a great run right with the help of the linemen which i don't know how in the world that's not cheating. I don't know how it's not cheating where laundry find the running back and keep pushing towards wherever he's wanting to go in and the guy gets an extra seven jorn broke dude get's up excited do gets up excited. Like i don't know what he said to the guy but he's fired up as he should be and then. The referee runs overthrow the flag. What is happening. What is going on in the nfl. Best parts of watching football for me growing up was the celebrations somewhere somewhere classically. bad right. the ki shuffle was not the greatest. When the guy i don't know the guy was you'd run fast. And then you would kind of just his knees together as he celebrated when he was in the zolt classically bet. They're never going to be good. That will never be an explanation of that being a good calibration. But it was fun will sanders would about the score touchdown and even put his hand behind his head. Highest net the prime time that was football's fund. You what are you doing. Nfl there is not a time. You can't get rid of this taunting rule. Fast enough the league's getting too involved in what's happening on the field. Let these dues have fun and get rid of that stupid. Replay rule that extends a basketball game forty times. The time that's left on this get you. Don't get to detail all the rules out of every sport bro. But i will say this about the taunting. It is high quality hot garbage. it is hot garbage. it is trashed reheated. Absolutely stink the the fun in football is the fact that everybody worked to get to this moment and guess what in this moment i was better than you and if i feel like telling you that you have options either. You can accept it or the next time. I'll you can make sure that i'm not better. And that's what i love about the game. i would love when somebody would make a play or receiver. Get a first down a running back. Get a first down. And he like. He's scored a touchdown. You know why because he had so you you've done all that you've done all this dancing you show boating on the field but guess what you got to get the ball again and when you get the ball again i get a chance to put you to sleep. That's what the game was about to me. there's a classic line that i love and it was dion sanders that senate diaz sanders. Said if you don't wanna see dance then keep them out of your paint. And that's how i feel you don't want people to you. You don't want people to celebrate. Then don't let them do good things and i feel that i'm with you dc. They can't get rid of this rule soon enough because i enjoyed watching antoine winfield stand over tyreek hill and give him the deuces like this at the what tyreek hill did him and did them in the first quarter during the regular season he earned it the same way. You say you earn those tears. He earned that opportunity to taunt and the fact that the nfl is trying to take it away is already stands for not for dang long and now they've for shore stand for no funding. I'm going to play with this rule. Do go play soccer. How be he can heartbeat in. This is like how batting thousand whatever you just got a knox he'll be right on the money. Just chases beep right. He goes to play soccer yet. They're they're they're really tripping with the rule with reality is football's back. I can't wait. I'm watching hard knocks. Jerry jones is putting salt on the grill of he and the world's going crazy soda is exciting. Who took solve the big red old jerry. Jones does jerry jones. Does football's back. We got fights this weekend. It is a great time to be alive. Man ryan. Great show love the mental talk. I think certainly from that. And how excited are you like. This has been fun right. This is getting better and better and better getting better and better every week. My guy.

"Tuesday morning. I was in here at five o'clock in the coal tubs. And i was straight to the video straight to the film so i could be prepared for wednesday mornings meeting knowing what we head if you can do all those things you were okay but it was. When you didn't that you felt like a failure. That was when. I had to come home and hug my kids. That was when i needed consolation. Because i understood that. I had failed me and i had felt my guys. I feel like for uc fighters in ima may fighters. You always feel like failure. You don't get your hand race and the mental toll and emotional toll that takes on you guys. I couldn't imagine why every single time i fought was was a super bowl right. Every time i fought for it was my super bowl right in when you're dealing with that type of pressure because we're out there for an eighteen thousand fifteen thousand seventeen thousand twenty thousand. I've never had to fight unless it was in those main events so there was a ton of pressure there. But the one thing that you don't want right especially a team sport and this is why ryan when it was time for us to make our decisions. We're leaving high school. I didn't have the best grades rights. I would have to go and do things in judy college. But i really didn't want to rely on anyone else why russell why didn't go play. Football wanted to just be count on myself. Because what does it feel like when you're sticking needles into yourself but your teammates high five guys. Because he had that great game. So it's like it's not everybody is of the same mind frame because ryan every time people laugh at me when i cry when jones beat me in anaheim art cried when steve big at me are at cried after my last fight. Those tears are earned. Those tears are earned. Don't get the crowd enough big. Those tears aren't too hard. Work is because i put so much of myself into everything that dole's tears are earned. So when you see athletes like page. Are you see neo meal soccer. Say i just can't do this. It's so much bigger because so much goes into preparing yourself four in actual competition for something at the professional level. There's a reason that it's called professional. That fifty second guy on nfl roster will smash anybody that you've ever seen a called a great football player that guy. That's number twelve on the bench on the basketball team. He is the best basketball player. You have ever. Late is on in your life. There's a reason. These athletes are professionals. It here's a reason that these people that go inside the man women man woman whoever goes into there are professional fighters because they are different in when there are different and cry in front of you to be judged for the world they have put so much work in those fears are earned in that work so when you see people just rushing to the back saying it's okay is it because they know deep within themselves they don't deserve they have not earn the ability to cry over loss. I think what you just said though was was so profound in this aspect. Dc so many times people see great athletes through their achievements in through their accomplishments in through those achievements and accomplishments gained him right. That the fact that you get fame the fact that you make money into that money and through that success you get more opportunity. People don't understand that for daniel cormier. This started wrestling in lafayette. And when he started doing that it was pure as it could possibly be people. Don't understand that when i lose super bowl. Forty five that the love for that game in the journey to that point started when i was four years old on the west bank mellat park in gretna and all of those things come to a combination. And you've worked so hard and you put you all into that and when you lose it it should matter that much. i think. That's what people miss. And when someone like page benzon comes out and says what she's dealing with. We shouldn't we shouldn't joke about it. We shouldn't laugh about it. What we should do is listen. You should listen and learn that. This is the type of dedication. This is the type of discipline. This is the type of focus that it takes to be an elite level athletes. But it's also the type of toll that it puts on your body your mind in your so and i think now more than ever. We're seeing athletes discuss these things be vulnerable about these things yet. Still come back and fight still. Come back and compete. They'll come back and play. And that's where we are in twenty twenty one and i hope athletes continue to speak up. I hope people like you. Who have done it. At the highest level who now watch it analyze it dissect it at the highest level. Continue to support those going through the same things that you were going through because there are so many lessons to be learned. I think that the 'vulnerability athletes show today is welcoming because for a long time. You know that. Michael jordan charles. Barkley and larry bird on those guys were unattainable. We could never touch them. We could never touch barry sanders we could never get an insight into who barry sanders was. I think when these athletes are open like that in there there their so available we need to use it for the right thing and accepted in the way that they're giving it to you because they're not nearly as guarded as they were before. Now when a guy like lebron james walks from a concert somebody rushes up one of many pushes them away. People wanna judge him negatively but the reality is he's right because he has to be right but now with people are open when they are vulnerable. You judge them as weak. So you gotta really choose what lane you want these people you hold in such high regard to really be in otherwise. You can never really have access to matt ryan. This conversation has been insane. I love they were able to get in some dimensions of your profession my profession but the reality is the see off last weekend that were no fight which is very rare. Today's climate back this weekend with a middleweight banger. Between jared cannon near in kelvin. Gasol now both of these guys have been to the top of the division gasoline on you. In what is in classic an instant classic. The day we left we left the arena. We knew that this was going to stand the test of time Cannon here just got his chances number one contenders fight against rob whitaker both coming off losses. The stakes are massive. How excited are you to see these two top middleweights compete inside the ufc apex dc. I'm fired up because this is a fight with two men who saw themselves at the top of the sport with an opportunity to get belts and now they're fighting to prove that they deserve that opportunity again. You mentioned the gasoline israel out of sonya fight. That was an absolute war and going into the fifth royal israel out of sonya is talking to him so he talked to himself. Say you know what. I'm ready to die for this like. You can't beat me. Because i would they go about that mindset and not the mindset of saying it i don't want you to think about the mindset of saying take about being kevin gasol who is now watch israel out of sign you're going to beat romero and kosta and really show that at his weight class. There's no one for him. Think about the fact that he stood across issue out assign your while. He was on his rise and gave him the toughest fight other than yawn. Beating him when israel moved up the tool five. And now if you're jerry near you're thinking to yourself i just lose to. Robert whitaker had an opportunity in the number one contenders fight to show that. This is where i go that this is the next step for me. And you're getting a guy who.

I've ever been while one of the smartest humans i've ever been around and one of the greatest football players of all the time so to have an opportunity to be there as he received his goal jacket may will be one of the greatest honors of my football career.

"Fire already zoo already. So talk about. I feel honestly. Rc like he's like the evolution of mixed martial arts at the heavyweight division. And because i know francis big at francis powerful. We've seen guys like that before. Derek lewis is like that we have not seen a cyril gone. Know a guy that moves away to the moves that can pick you apart that can keep that rage in do the things that he's dog. That's one switch. This fight between derek zero well if you listen to derrick derrick say right i got twenty five minutes to touch him one time because he has that type of knock knock out power then zero gone on the other side saying you know what i don't necessarily think he's the best i- foot you know. This is the guy he can punch but he needs to work on his cardio. He doesn't necessarily have this larger array of skill and in general vets. Not trash talk. But if i'm derek lewis that's how i internalize it. Yeah and we want to come and we wanna see a black beast that is feasting a black beasts that is chasing a black beast that is trying to get that knockout on. I think we see that this fight and the winner of this fight understands what's the next challenge and even though you say to fight was born right you you say you didn't enjoy to fight. I remember a guy who used to play football talking to a former two division champ and saying that he thought another fight was born and all that guy told me was well. He won the fact that derek news derek. Lewis won the fight where you're fighting a guy like for instance and god knew that's what it takes that fights not that boring the next time and i believe what we see. This saturday is what we will get in a fight like that. And so two you. If zero god stands in front of derek lewis and show that a skills will we see that francis and gone new zero gone matchup or will it be derek lewis francis and god. I'm gonna tell you one thing. I can't pick that. This is what i love about. My job called the fights. I don't have to pick pick but guess what you'll learn inviting people hate when you pick against them. The fighters are the most sensitive human beings on the entire planet. But here's the thing for cyril gotten. This is massive because this gives them an opportunity to be in front of a big striker puncher. Like he's going to see in france and gone or not using for one fight josie aldo returns. One of your this is one at a guy. All right tell you that from conversation one you have always liked. And he makes the return on saturday. In the coleman event. How would you do the we see in the return. Because he's got another big step up he's out another big massive fight in front of him. You thank you you go back to watching him against pr guy. And he really just picked them apart Josie auto came out. Aggressive is first time back down at the weight and so now we get to see him against another fight moon. You'll soup needs this fight yet. He both of these guys are necessarily not necessarily gatekeeper. But trying to be back in a situation where it counted as contenders. He and a auto. I told you this a long time ago. When i told you why i liked conor mcgregor. He was the first small individual. I was actually scared of. Can we see that type of explosives explosiveness. Do we see it again. Or does josie aldo. Even if he wins tonight never get an opportunity to contend for a championship. Is he's a guy like anderson silva who we will see fight other dudes who are coming up in the ring so they can say. I fought anderson silver i fought josie aldo. And now the ufc and dana. White gets to say you'd be the legend we can move you up and make you a contend josie aldo still is very viable. The problem is when you've lost it a champion right and you have recreated yourself to get to this weight class. It's hard to envision a time where he becomes that true contender again. Is it not possible. I will not say that. Because i will never pull the curtain back on a guy that wants to fight right. I can't do that. i refused you. But if you look at everything. Pedro munoz jones a algal. It does not look like right. Now is a time. Where does two are going to be contending for championships. Especially when out. Jemaine sterling is fighting against peoria. Yon in tj dillashaw kind of waiting in the queue. But this is a great step in a very fun fight yet. That will lead to something bigger. Especially for pedro munoz. Avian get past joe's aldo. Which will not which will not be easy. Josie still possesses unbelievable power. He's still extremely athletic. In the guy is still motivated to become a champion regardless of what we talking heads. The guy that's still wants to talk here. What's he wants he wants you. Hold that belt. You never lose that desire to become the ufc champion. I know that josie although that's still burns deep inside of him but let's get back to manscaping. We go one more time to our good friends over at manscaping now. I don't know if i grab the same at re twice. I'm not exactly sure but let me pull here pool here. This is what happened when dc our are on site there it is go again right.

"That that the that the wrestling plays a huge role or a bigger role in this fight or we get the same type of Exciting stand up matchup. We got in code in kobe. Covington kamar rougemont one. So i think the issue is for covington. He couldn't take oberlin down in the way that he thought he would but he also couldn't use his cardio as a weapon right one thing. That covington does really really well. We've seen this on a number of different occasions is he uses cardio as a weapon because he can go harder than most people by the time that he starts to fatigue guys are completely wiped out. They can't even stand so he just kinda wears them down. He's like an avalanche going downhill but use mine was able to stand up to that. Not only was he able to stand up to that and with standard he was actually able to take it a step further and that is what i think happened in kobe. That's why kobe didn't wrestle. As much as the fight went longer because he thought it wasn't going anywhere kamara. Today is a better fighter. Then he was back when they fought in two thousand eighteen. Two thousand nineteen i. I'm not sure if it was eighteen. Nineteen but we're whatever they thought he's better today and it showed in his performances over gilbert burns over horry mas with all twice right. It's showing that use. Mine is still improving. I think a lot of that is accredited has worked with trevor wittman. It's going to be fantastic fight. It's going to headline would could be madison square garden in new york city which is always a phenomenal car to to to headline. I mean the heavyweight champion with a world. I'm ali joe frazier to everybody fought in madison square garden. Big time that it just means a little bit more. And i know that that's not lost on kamara cushman or kobe covington. I cannot wait for those guys to get locked inside. The octagon but our c. r. c. We have been lucky to have man's gave on board with us from the start but last weekend we saw the return of the viper t. j. dillashaw and you'll look man recaps have been done to death to this point but for me it's about what's next because when a former king a guy that ruled a division makes his return. It's big news on the tip of everybody's tongue so afterward t. j. dillashaw did to the number two ranked bantamweight in the world. Of course very competitive fight. What do you want to see from the former champion because for me. He showed toughness durability he showed that he still the same t. dillashaw from before the suspension. So when you win the fight like that after two years suspension. What's next for the former champion. T. dillashaw well. it's to me. Dc i think tj dillashaw is waiting for the peter. Yon all joe sterling winner to get his shot at the title. I felt like the reason. You put a t. j. dillashaw from his two years of fresh off for two years benching against a guy suspension against a guy like corey san hagan is. Because you wanna see where he is you understand that. He's getting a little long in the tooth. He may not have a ton of fights left but you get the excitement that he brings and he brought that excitement against corey san hagan right. He comes out. He gets his knee injured in the first round he fights through that a nasty gash on his eye. He continues the fight through that. He controls the octagon. He walks corey. San hagan down the entire fight. Even the eagle comes out and says hey we need to see peter. Yon t. j. dillashaw for the belt. But peter yacht has to win the belt i he has to go out and recapture it from all joe sterling. We all know about the legal knee that took his boat away from him. But if peterman all joe sterling win net fight whoever's the champion i believe they face t. j. dillashaw knicks. And that's going to be a hell of a fight for all of us. It's going to be a fantastic fight. And honestly i don't want anything other than that. Cotija dila shell. He showed last weekend that he's still the very elite of the elite. And that's why you see it in the bantamweight rankings. He's the number two ranked bantamweight in the world. Only the fyodor yang. And i gotta be honest with you. If al jemaine sterling wasn't the champion due to that illegal knee t. J. dillashaw would not have entered the rankings. At number two he would have gone right back to number one. If the order young would continue ted fight and one in the way that it was trending fighting rights. No i'm saying that if he would have to fight right. 'cause pure yang was beating jemaine searle. Pure yang was raining out and he seemed to be on his way to win. That fight right then. That would be a little more clarity in the division t. j. dillashaw pizza. Corey san hagan. He wouldn't went right to number got you. He wouldn't be ranked number two. There may site so he would be the number one ring bantamweight in the world and he would be in line for the title shot against the champion but those guys have been scheduled again. Finally right there rescheduled to fight down in abu dhabi. It's gonna give us an idea of what is next for the champion t. j. dillashaw but listen t. J. dillashaw had a ton of injuries. Going into the fight. He spoke about his knees. He spoke about not sparring..

It's red kool-aid not a flavor is just rate and there's more sugar than there is water and i'm right. We caught him mcgregor man. Who was all you knew at the beginning that you had to explain yourself but then as time went on you went war and more in on a bold prediction that just really didn't make any sense are see. The floor is your and may explained by may told us it. It makes total sense daniel. I didn't necessarily say that dustin had no chance we saw with dusted. Did the last time knocked him out in the second row out. Saying kind of running for conor mcgregor cottam a fighter that brains excitement roselle as he was about to comb out of his locker room. And the okay this is the powder we'd been waiting and we got the ordinary has. This is what we're going to get and then dusted album. The entire and then we see the unfortunate lay bring late in the first round and i was like you know what it kind of doesn't matter because it was clearly winning this fight and daniel corey as an as yet despite we hear her say that does in makes me feel like you know what you saw the right thing and is no longer on poor gays level and i had to accept me that the next how regret your fights whether it's cease months in a year or year and a half a villa. Tuna hell no big easy and get my money again. Because he's the notorious he's exciting and he brings the energy to the fire but doesn't for another to you. I am sorry a ryan clark. Listen i'm just going to somebody's tweets. And i'm looking at people going. Dang dc ryan clark out of his mind. Then these riots are possibly go back to louisiana thank you. There's no way unleaded ryan back home after that little. I don't even know what the call what you did. I mean you went from louisiana model. You went from from from josie all. Do i mean you bounce all over the globe in your little rant of you got your finger up in the air you may as well have some wine from san francisco alydar guys you you live at kelly broke. And here's the thing that all the people from louisiana to understand a dc. And this is what. I've learned from my first week working working the usc. This is what. I love everybody. Who loves the usc. Face that they're daniel and is using. Is our steadying airport every views. Let me answer the Do i'll turn it around and catch another flat. All those people in louisiana eight. You is going to be fine to go. It would be a great time to support does create from here on out because never get to sent me. He's phenomenal absolutely phenomenal. But if all we go back to vegas last week we have to talk about some big new zebra less than eight. Nate robbie lawler again or second time now. I thought was fantastic. Fight in it feels like this fight right is ideal for both guys because robbie lawler is at a point in his career raise not necessarily at the very top in. India hasn't fought for so long last time fought. Yes not not those way back in two thousand that was even before the ultimate fighter right. This was before you have even started to even go to the mainstream wasn't on spike tv. Which is what launched the ultimate fighter. Now here's the thing they were talking about. Nick diaz fighting guys like homs to maya they were talking about the fighting guys like long ahmed. Everybody was calling him up. I feel like this is absolutely the right type of matchup In his return the ufc got this riot. If you go back to the i think he was our for forty seven. You go back to the first fire. It was wanted. Nobody really knew. Nate diaz was but we knew that robbie lawler was one of those expected to climb the charts the climb the rankings and eventually become champion that he was in stalking him talking to him stinks and lawler comes back with wilders. India's finally lands a right. That was one of the best fights of. It's time that was that started the excitement behind the brother. The land khazni and so this is the perfect fight for put him in there against some young becoming guy. You don't get to do. That's going to take it down and try to grappling reporter would get out there. Swain parts fight stand towards zero and do the things that need to do the excitement around despite his mother be crazy than the stalled around. This is going to be amazing. And i can't wait to see. And i think that is what is most important in regards to the matchup right. The inner remind people of how special that these two guys are robbing lawler. Never robbie lawler truly became and the league will love him for the fact of loved the diaz brothers win lou last night. We saw nikki. Mary engine at one point. He just laid down in the middle of he put his hand up. Still eight neck completely out of their mind guys. Listen that is exciting news. But if ryan if you don't talk about las vegas last week in which had the biggest fight field that i felt long time would really be doing ourselves deserves but before we get to that we.

It just adds more chaos to it for me you know. But that's just that's fighting. Yeah that's what that's what it is. Look at your eyes your eyes oh no. Dc qatar counter likes connor. Likes to walk out of the water. He likes that right. I can't even eat. Because i'm conor mcgregor. I'm the notorious shadowboxing these people all out. These people are out waiting for mcgregor as he left dinner. But then you got the poor you on the other end saying kinda wanna do it in an empty arena. The athlete loves the crowd. I mean like you said the raven's game you know the crowd's going crazy. How much did you go in the baltimore knowing that. That's what you wanted. I wanted to walk in embassy stadium and say look. We're here. yeah. I love that right. I wanted somebody to run a slant and it just be me and him in the middle of the field. I like that for for you. You were talking about of the nervous anxious energy head going into the last fight. If i'm conor mcgregor this excites me. What are you thinking about that. I mean come on ice me why why. I don't understand why. I don't understand why it because the crowd has lifted him to a lot of crazy performances. Boy that's not. I don't like that you know the word that stuck out to me chaos Remember early on in the show. You spoke about conor. Mcgregor is life outside of the ring. We got it. Yup right the chaos and so now that's the way conor mcgregor gets that chaos back into the arena back into the fight and he loves it. He plays to it right when when he comes out and he's and he's hair right. Everybody's doing that right over four to fight when he's looking and he's like all those things that feeds who gregor is and so now it's about dustin being able to create right. Dustin wants to create the same atmosphere we had before fans was about normalcy wanted. He wanted normal sparring. Vive verses. you alley fight. Field doesn't know he seems to want a more. It's more intimate right like it's me and you write manoa model dozens from lafayette right. Dustin once that like like you said your industry you not stick off my shoulder. You know my mom twenty minutes with also again. Dustin wants that dust is want. I want you and me. I don't want you to get energy from the crowd. I don't want any of that. What do you got to think about it too conor. Mcgregor i play with that tony. O'brien and people in some things happen toward the end of his pittsburgh career. I felt like i had an issue with him. Here's the issue. I never had with him. I knew he played for fame right. I knew he played for money. I knew he liked the glitz. Glamour the lights but the thing about this made him work harder than any officer player. Ever see and so. I had no issues with them because i knew when the lights were only up young was prepared and i think that's what conor mcgregor fights for that right. Four thousand eight enough Oh you'd think the crowds in june. Yeah yeah he he didn't he didn't bill this legacy of the notorious to fight it for four thousand. He built that to fight in front the largest list of celebrities to fight in front of full arena. And that's what he'll get this dude. His crosser insane. I mean there's beer getting thrown all over the place. It's like. I hated like the very soccer matches. It's like those crazy soccer matches you see in europe would kinda mcgregor fights man. I cannot wait until this weekend. It is going to be a fantastic main event but the fight card itself is going to be tremendous you have to sixty four is one of the biggest paper views that i've seen for a long time. You get conor. Mcgregor versus dustin four for the third time trilogies are the best thing in all of sports. Nothing quite matches it. Make sure you tune in saturday. Ten pm eastern.

Ten years after Fukushima, Japan remembers 'man-made' nuclear disaster

"Japan then caused a nuclear power plant in Fukushima to go into meltdown. It was a traumatizing event, one that left the Japanese public and the world wanting guarantees that a nuclear disaster like that would never happen again. But can Japan make that promise? Some of Japan's most prominent earthquake, experts say. Not really the world's Patrick win has more. Okumura. Koji is a paleo seismologist. That means he studies earthquakes, old earthquakes that may have shaken the earth. When wooly mammoths were still around. It's like archaeology off course Quake. Archaeology of earthquakes. Sounds really nish on Lee. It's not. It's actually a matter of life and death because if they fault erupted even 10,000 years ago, that's a sign that it might erupt again in our lifetime, and you really shouldn't build a nuclear reactor anywhere near it. Because this could happen. In 2011 tsunami created by an undersea earthquake that squeaking noise, those air buildings crumbling in a torrent of water. And at the Fukushima nuclear plant. Waves pounded the power plant, causing a meltdown. It happened on March 11 and Japanese people still call it 3 11 shorthand for catastrophe now, Okumura. He is one of the top earthquake experts in Japan. And before 3 11. He was on a government safety panel as a caveat. He wants to say this. Nobody knew and nobody could have predicted kid. What he means is no one could have predicted this earthquake at this specific time. But Okumura and a few others were warning the nuclear industry that some of their reactors were sitting on potentially shaky ground. In those days, nuclear companies were almost regulating themselves. But after 3 11, Japan started over what they knew nuclear watchdog agency one with an unofficial motto, the new nuclear regulatory regime in Japan must be the world's strictest, which tracks with an acknowledgement that seismic risk in Japan is among the world's worst. Drew Richard is an author whose new book, Every Human Intention follows Scientists struggling to figure out how to prevent another Fukushima because that's what people want to hear. Alice that this will never happen again. Okamura, the seismologist says. That's almost an impossible request. We cannot tell when underwear a big Oscar eco cars, he can tell you this, like it or not. No nuclear problem. These profit pretty save Every nuclear power plant, he says, comes with risk, especially in Japan. Here's the deal. Japan just doesn't have much oil or gas. So starting in the 19 sixties, with lots of American help, it went heavy on nuclear to power, one of the world's biggest economies. And they did this. Knowing Japan as a lot of earthquakes again. Here's Drew Richard nearly all of Japan in nearly all the sites where nuclear reactors are built, our seismically hazardous. It's a nation that faces a level of seismic risk that's almost uniformly comparable to Seismically active areas of California on Lee, California has one nuclear plant. Japan was running 50 Woz after 3 11 that nuclear watchdog shut down all of them. It has since allowed only five to reopen. Watchdog is so strict that even experts who were advising the government before the disaster are effectively not allowed to join. That includes scientists like Okumura, Koji. And others who were warning the government, Okumura says. They just scrap the whole system for them, or the system was useless and I'm used to, and I'm useless to, he says. Other Japanese seismologists, who could join the watchdog agency won't because well, scientists don't want the spotlight the immense political pressure Okumura says. Right now, the agency actually does not have a solid team of earthquake specialist say Don't Tall, you know, professional scientists. Yes, it's a big laws. Drew Richard says. Most earthquake experts agree seismic safety is a real blind spot in a real weak spot for the current regulatory agency. And that's glaring because the Fukushima disaster was a seismic event. That's bad, Richard says. The current top seismic safety regulator isn't really an earthquake expert. He's more of a geologist, so it's a little bit like asking an influential kidney doctor to operate on your heart. Richard says most officials mean well, yet they face a traumatized public. Still looking to scientist for peace of mind the expertise of these earthquakes, scientists has been applied to Ah, fundamentally impossible question that question. Are any of those dozens of reactor sites absolutely safe from earthquakes. And as it turns out on the basis of the limits of human knowledge At this time, the answer is maybe we don't know. At this point half of all Japanese people just don't want nuclear power at all. Nuclear companies are pushing to reopen their reactors, but keep getting denied. Try again, Regulators say, Make it safer. Meanwhile, with most nuclear plants closed, Japan has had to import way more coal, dirty polluting coal warming the whole planet and people aren't happy with that, either. Just listen to these protesters. Follows at US. I'll call, you know, Call Japan. They're chanting, Okamoto says. There are no easy solutions here. He knows the public. Just want scientist to tell them their energy source is safe. What science can never be published again. It's the nature or not. You're Hauser. I admit he also admits that actually, he wants more nuclear plants to open up. That's coming from the scientist who foresaw Lay Fukushima like nuclear nightmare. Look, some of Japan's plans should clearly never open again, He says. They're just too close to fault lines. For others. The odds of another earthquake seem low enough that Japan should take the risk. He says. The country needs power. Yes, I'm afraid people against nuclear power may be hungry after me. Just try not to be too angry at me, Okumura says. He's just a guy who wanted to study prehistoric earthquakes, never imagining that pursuit could affect the fate of his country. And the entire planet. For the world. I'm Patrick Quinn.

Landmark Court Ruling In Japan Holds Government Accountable For 2011 Nuclear Meltdown

"The Japanese government and a nuclear power plant operator have appealed a landmark court ruling. The ruling holds them responsible for the country's worst ever nuclear accident. The 2011 Fukushima meltdown was triggered by a huge earthquake and tsunami. But as NPR's Anthony Koon reports from Seoul plaintiffs are concerned that justice is being delayed once again. Cheering broke out outside the high court in the city of Sendai, about 60 miles north of the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant last month. Too many people surprise the court's ruling held the central government and the Tokyo Electric Power Company, or TEPCO, which runs the plant equally responsible for the accident. Plaintiffs argued that scientists had warned the government in 2000 to that a major tsunami could hit the area. The court said in its caving verdict that the government failed to take actions. She'll sort of Colonel when you go Oh, God. The government. Despite its position is regulator just let TEPCO do Is it pleased and let it put off safety measures? It was gross negligence, and it was an attitude Unbefitting, a regulatory agency. That was Takashi Nakajima, paraphrasing the court's verdict. He's a leader among the nearly 3600 plaintiffs in the case. Sendai Court or did the government and TEPCO to pay them $9.6 million in compensation double with a lower court had ruled three years ago. Many people in Nakajima's community near Fukushima fled their homes. He says he filed the lawsuit. Basically, just to say, Give me back my former life Rising. Ah need. Imagine how you would feel says if suddenly you get into a situation where you can never go back to your hometown because there's a risk of radiation. Nakajima runs a supermarket. He says that fears about radiation and waters near Fukushima make it impossible to sell the local fish in which he used to take such pride even more. Fishermen eat him because they've been eating them for a long time, he says. And they're tasty. But their sons and daughters in law tell them that their grandchildren should not eat them. This is a situation which divides many families. Judges in the Sendai verdict appear to have been especially sympathetic to such hardships. The Osaka, a law professor at Tokyo University in Tokyo, explains hunk. It doesn't mean you can t the Sendai High Court judges actually visited the area and issuing the Trial before the decision was made. It's very unusual that judges truly understand going hardships the victims are experiencing some plaintiffs in similar lawsuits have not been. His fortunate is Nakajima and have lost Professor Masafumi Okamoto, professor of environmental policy at Osaka City University, says the Sendai verdict could change that in, you know, taking any next? Of course, this's the first time a decision recognizing the government's full responsibilities they made at the high court level, he says, although it was partly recognized by a lower court. It's very significant and it'll clearly influence future decisions. That's why many observers were not surprised when the government and TEPCO appealed the verdict on Tuesday. Plaintiff, Takashi Nakajima hopes that the Sendai Court ruling will eventually pave the way for the shutdown of all dangerous nuclear power plants in Japan. But whether or not the ruling stands will now be up to Japan's Supreme Court to decide. Anthony Kun. NPR news soul

T.J. Dillashaw gives up UFC title after failed drug test

"Have to talk about what everyone is talking about on this Wednesday morning. And that is the news that was broken by T J dillashaw himself, very early this morning at around eight o'clock, a m eastern time he posted this on his Instagram and Twitter to all my fans. I wanted to be the first one to let you know that you sat up and the New York. State Athletic Commission. Have informed me of an adverse finding a test taken for my last flight while words can begin to express. How disappointed I am at this time. Please know that I'm working with my team to understand what has occurred and how to resolve the situation as quickly as possible out of fairness respect to the rest of my division. I've informed you have see that. I'll be voluntarily relinquishing my title while I deal with this matter I want to thank all of you in advance for the support. So that was the big news that broke shortly thereafter, I found out that the New York State Athletic Commission has suspended TJ dillashaw for a year retroactive to that January nineteenth date, and they've also fined him ten thousand dollars. They have not said what he has tested positive for and just moments ago. I received this statement from you Sada in light of Mr. dillashaw social media post this morning. We can't confirm that an in competition. Test conducted by you Saad on January eighteenth. Thousand nineteen. So just note. This is my note that was the day before the Henry pseudo fight in Brooklyn, which he lost in just thirty two seconds. The first round resulted this back to the statement resulted in an adverse analytical finding in. This instance, we are able to confirm the finding to Mr. Dilshad public statement. The presumption of innocence under the rules vital part of an effective anti-doping programme ended his only fair that Mr. dillashaw be allowed due process before any conclusions are

Panthers owner David Tepper told reporters that quarterback Cam Newton sitting out the entire 2019 season could be an option

"The other item. I want to get into his Cam Newton. Now, David Tepper Ono for the Carolina Panthers. Basically alluded to Cam Newton maybe possibly having the sit out the next season. Just so they could prioritize getting him one hundred percent healthy. I love Cam Newton. Cam Newton is a star athlete stud athlete. But one could argue Cam Newton. They really learn how to throw the football until the season. When north Turner was his office coordinator because he's complete six sixty seven percent of his passes this year, whereas throughout his first seven years in the National Football League, he never completed better than sixty percent of his passes. And even that was only one time at sixty percent. So I'm not talking about moving off from Cam Newton in terms of all my Lord. He's finished he's done, etc. Etc. I'm talking about a plan b. You know, it was Cam Newton wanted to run the football when he got popped by TJ watts on over eighty I believe it was against Pittsburgh. All right. And he got hitting that show. It wasn't the same sense. An appearance was six two at that time. When all of those things happen to Cam Newton. We saw that. But it was Cam Newton that insisted on running for boy was Cam Newton didn't wanna take the capable of superman. It was Cam Newton had a problem with coach Ron Rivera for wanting to streamline and dissipate. Those running plays for his star quarterback. It was Cam Newton for that. So is the way you wanna play. But the reality is is that. One could argue. They Cam Newton. Just as a great pocket passer. He's never he never has been career. Why? It eight say ESPN, it's inundate seven to nine three seven seven six about a way, you know, what next year? I mean think about the quarterbacks that are going to be mentioned, Nick foles. You don't want him because he's getting a long term deal. He's gonna have his pick of the litter. I'd say go to Jacksonville, you consider it. You got teddy Bridgewater. You got Joe flacco. One year. Gotta get Ryan Fitzpatrick why Fitzpatrick going to Carolina for the year and do damage. That's okay gets back. What? He was looking pretty damn good until cutter decided to put in James Winston.

The origins of Ryan 'Darth' Bader's nickname

"Heavyweight, grand prix fish announced last week that he will meet Fyodor only Netco on January twenty six at the forum in Inglewood California, and be final to see who will become the Bill, our heavyweight champion. If he wins that fight, he will then become Bill tours. I ever double champion, light heavyweight champion in built or he is Ryan Darth Vader Ryan. How're you doing great. What about you? I'm doing really well. Thanks for doing this Ryan. By the way, when you had your intro before the Mitchell fight, two Fridays ago, they had a little like Star Wars thing in there. Was that the first time that you've done that before? They, they kind of like a little something gonna be account down show. I didn't get to see also getting. Yet. Remember you doing that, so you didn't. You don't even hear the music when you're about to walk out. Well, like they've always in the music. I hear the music. I like the the dog in the beginning, China children that song between the back, whatever, but other, no, they get. We shine a little something. We're in Andhra with the head kind of I dunno. TV behind me when I'm walking out at all. What's fascinating is the fact that you're like the complete antithesis of of Darth Vader rarely, just such like happy guy, you know, kind of nice guy. You know what I mean? Is that why you got the nickname to begin with. Thing. You know, it was kinda from Brooklyn breslin days on this guy called me, and I went to went to another. I went to this call mcgarth also kinda stopped on down there. So what was when you signed up for this tournament? And I hate to to use the word easy, but it does feel like it has been relatively easy for you. Did you think it would go this way like that it would be such a walk in the park for you? I fight, you know, obviously you never go into any fifteen seconds. This punch three and knocking out more than spied Novick. Yet. Heavyweight date day can't towns which putting given to turn the hat winning. The whole thing was a favorite and they're the best, you know, heck weights. And right now you don't go out there and in kicking on, grinding them out. You'll be out of the. I saw myself walk through so many different matchups in the kitchen, not in in day the different styles. Really that I was going to have to fight finish investigator hands. You can, you know, update for big heavy, you heavyweight news in the, I always thought I was going to turn in of Trinite. But yeah, I mean, nobody predicted knockout. I. I was gonna handle that differently on the ground, and that's what I did. And you know, I'm, I'm join us so far considering how well it's going for you indicate, and I'm sure not having to wait cut for the first time in a very long time is a pleasure as well. Is there any chance that you just stay at heavyweight pass the tournament? You know, I don't know. Originally. When is two bucks and drop down the same. They lie. Heavyweight and descend the heavyweight on. You know. But who knows when that actually happens? I go out there and win this. I win this fight. There might be more intriguing matchup at heavyweight or Bill tour might want me to say or miss more sense to take a heavyweight title five. So right now I I want to, I want to different bowl 'cause they fire to me is not that really difficult. At the same time. We'll see when we get there. Like, what do you walk around at. About thirty five right now. Okay. Well, so I mean probably dating back to when you were a kid like the last time you probably didn't have to cut weight, so to speak quote unquote, probably like a decade or two decades ago, right? I mean, even, you know? Yeah. I was in high speed, Tony, Jimmy page, always walking around two twenty down to one ninety. One ninety seven. Get down to the lower than that.
