I'm it's fighting so anything can happen. And the alex perez could take the decision but man. How dare you how dare you. We'll get to that card but Over the weekend you had Espn plus fights rda dose angeles. Paul felder Paul felder one of fucking legend man for a guy who was kind of i think basically retired getting ready for a triathlon. Basie reina's bike was riding his bike and was like i'm in shape. I take this fight. Phenomenal his timing. His speed sharp. Chris striking i think if they gave him a different matchup or really. Listen at lightweight. Anyone who was gonna do striking with paul felder what he would have won that night. He looked i you know one of the best performances. He's had a and people forget almost forgot. Rda at fifty. Five a fucking monster. A monster should never went to seventy rda at fifty. Five is an absolute brazilian demon So just a tough match-up for paul felder especially on five days notice shows. You ride a bike liquid achieve. So he's riding a bike decide to go on their fight. When the best in the world went all five rounds did twenty five minutes without really training ideas. Makeweight shut paul for even making wait. Just a legend man might my you know he's mvp of the car. He saved the card. He's also guy who wasn't really in any form of training camp was just riding his bike and running and has that phenomenal must moustache. And just you know put on a good performance but you know. Rda just for full camp. He's getting ready for wrestler. Shot dr j. for taking the fight to but also a bigger step up for da Paul filters number seven. So now's a big feather in the cap for our. Da as you know goals of reaching a title shot you beat number seven to compete in the top ten so much. Better fight friday da. They weren't doing he actually Dodged a bullet with homeboy getting hurt so the judging it just you know. There's no accountability. Forty seven forty eight. What the fuck re listen. We all love paul felder. That's his uncle or a long lost cousin who ever scored that you you to be out of your goddamn mind. Chris lee chris. Lee i just in. There's no like there's no there's nothing do we know there's nothing there is just. He's i go all right moving on next fight you dumb ass like for a lot of these people lose half their pay. He should be paid. You should not be paid if you fuck up that bad there has to be consequences there has to be. I don't get how we can't change this. I don't get it now. Thank god it didn't You know affect the fight where. Rda was were to lose that. But you know he fucked some other fights up but just a just a needy just an idiot. You can't be a judge anymore. You can't dude the funky watching you. We can't have you we can't have you. You're not welcome anymore. I don't get what what it's going to take before someone addresses this and we just quit on. Well that's that's mma scoring or dana. And what the ufc. Brad can't even the hands of the judges yell we can. Yes we can because this is mixed martial arts at the highest level and it's really hard to finish guys and everybody's really really fucking good. Now you guys gotta know what you're watching you gotta score it right or you can't be a judge sia. You can't be a fucking judge. Dude gilbert put fuck these judges. I'm always like for the finish but sometimes it's hard these judges doing a terrible job while please dana white. Wherever can help please. We cannot have our pants be decided. One or two checks by these judges. That's insane. what else he put. Ufc fourteen lessons are won't be five top five we'll see felder warrior and one judges tehran's job agree with Fellers warrior and i think felder proved that he's a top five one fifty five or rda the united st it still out You know because he had such a rough time at seventy but we'll see Call out car. Mcgregor and connor was like. I'll be your huckleberry i'd love to see that that's a great fight. For connor you do and then That rda yup fear connor fan. You are s- foaming at the dick. 'cause there's a route for him to world champion again But shot paul felder shout to rda that judge can eat this dick And then chaos williams. I called it. My buddy who bets on fights. I said my favorite pick of the night is chaos williams under two and a half rounds to get a finnish and sho nuff he starched homeboy. Goddamn tugboat power. Talk about our men. And alison is no punk. No punk at all. He's actually pretty heavily favored to one so You know thirty seconds. We still don't know a ton about chaos will but he's an absolute fucking demon. He looked fantastic. Ashi yoder Verse grainger you know. We'll probably forget that. Fight shot to iota. Forget it done almost finished her if she had two more seconds shooting submission. She's a little beast. Sean strickland brendan allen. Shout to brennan. Alan wish you would have won Also gotta show respect to sean. Strict strickland I just don't think there's respect there. I think brennan al might be the better overall mixed martial artists. But just with lack of respect and upton kat john strictly a bad mamma jamma bad. Ma'am jemma Don't tell me as got it done. Great name fi the night. Rda paul fella. Yeah no shit. No shit i want now. I'm curious. does paul feller go damn. I did this on five days. Notice a so. I wonder if he's like i am. I am pretty fucking good. And maybe doesn't retire. He's a great commentator. Definitely top five that we have but there's this could be still some work left to do for him if he wants if he wants hopefully took care of them financially. I would imagine so he was such a like. It was such a cool story when it came out so everyone wanted to watch after that so they must been really well. Yup bell tower this weekend as well. He had pit bull went in via k. O first round two minutes in the first round And then did anybody see my boy. I keep telling ya. I keep telling you. He's the biggest prospect and mixed martial arts and he's quietly putting together an impressive resume bodies With his body work he is a great lover. Shot ended up starting This vat you know not an easy fight. And he's getting better and better man. He's getting better and better just a matter time for that. Do the world champion. It's just a matter of time. I'm telling you that gets world champion. Written all over him and pego destroyed homeboy and show highlight here. Tastic i could throw it up. Yeah might as well. Yeah and also. It's a great knockout His coaches they notice something before. So that's also breaking news right now breaking news fabrice overdoing signing with pf. l. Kevin actually brought this up a interesting. Who's gonna fight. I don't know well be world championships dominate. So you know he's tailenders career. So that's what you wanna do. Yeah i love her. Do all right here. We go man so he was out of character because he's super super emotional. But those ak talking shit or something. No no i guess. The his coaches is now. He's with the A jackson winkled coaches And now the other guy is just so they just knew that this their coaches would say one four and he would do a certain move so whenever they said pico. When you hear one. Four gopher over handwrite bom. It worked this guy craig. Not some moron. Social great knockout ruined it with poor sportsmanship again. He he apologized the real mother. Fucking deal folded love when he goes doing. Well be up so pico did apologize a lot afterwards. Is our shit happens. Pico emotions motions. It's a fight also. How's that horse. That horse that big ass. She by the way that horses. Good luck man. We go riding. We still gonna real writing. Good fights them dude fights. Yeah this this weekend Uc to five pay per view. Shouldn't be pay per view data. You know this There's ministering fights on their yacht allen job my brother mother model. He's back after a long layoff Jared the night train gooden You know the newcomer. The you know. Dana white's Fight series there on tuesday nights on. Espn plus which huge fan of lot of talent comes out of their man. If i'm a young fighter. I am not going on The ultimate fighter. I'm off that contender series. It's much better. you'll right to the don't have to do all the bullshit you don't have to be on some reality. Show all up in the videos. You don't have to be you know. Create fake drama and deal with all these knuckleheads the best outcomes out of that contender series. Now by far we could the resume. There's some fucking talent that comes out of their man but you're not mad at it. I just think if you're a casual fan. It's hard to pay eighty dollars for this especially when too big favorites in the main event and combing event and also both flyweights. It's a it's a tough sell. i'm into it again. I'm a degenerate. And i will pay every bit of The seventy nine nine nine four it but Shevchenko just has no competition. And this jennifer maya. Who is convicted champion. You look at her style. It's like all this isn't going five rounds. She's in get lit. The fuck up like a brazilian christmas tree Shevchenko's get absolutely destroyed up a poor girl. And i'm there for pay dollars. Watch get fucked up shevchenko You know man or woman might be one of the most talented people in the afc top five. No doubt and she's getting this what's scary. She's getting better own. She lost a newness. Who's way bigger split decision. Swit- decision amena newness. She's a fucking monster getting better so always pay to watch her fight Figueredo alex perez. He's supposed to fight cody garbrandt and cody had to pull out. Which is such a shame. Because that's a fight that fire those would be closer Betting odds You know i'd love to see my cody lousy. My boy cody garbrandt. Destroy figure rio and he has the power and the skill set to do it. I do think cody would have beat him So we're hoping for a fast recovery. From cody garbrandt. Still gotta get your future charis. Let me get your schedule wide open. Let's get it done. So you know. I do think Figuring it will get done. Alex perez again. A guy who came off dana white contender series. real savvy vet lot of fights. A lot of experience has kind of a you know a style that could cause some issues for figure reto And go to the judge's decision you know he was knocked out by Joy in vitas. And you know i'll see joey got starched By figuring out multiple times. It's just a shame. He so talented in. Probably the best guy never get about not name your favor So stuff to see but yeah. This fight will be better than that komeda event. It's a little more competitive. I do think i'll alex. Perez has the tools and the savviness to to make into a decision lose via decision. But that being said figueredo as far as power goes out of any division. About time at flyweight we have a guy can not turn your lights out and that that's the way to bring the vision back. Finally there's a little bit of sparking division gets vigorito starch and dude and make it look easy. And he's bad for the division. Hopefully there's no issues with weight. Cut beacon see why brandon merano and brandon. Roy val are the You know also on the card the main event on the prelims they should definitely be on the main card I that's the best fight of the night by far matchup. Wise this the.

Because he is a knockout artist in. Tim means like the play that game. So we'll see. I'm also not mad at cynthia cavallo. Who got pulled duda krona verse to. Can you remember kaitlyn judkins. She lost just a couple of weeks ago. The long legs. She got bodied up by just gone draws with hang your head about remember she got hit and then turn around bothering falker and then. I'm big on cynthia calvia i think it again. She's another one where she has the mentality. she has a workout ethic. She has the skill set. Champion i'm really high in calvi. I've always been high in her. She's like a female version of diaz. Bros you know. She's she's pretty big favorite my student. here's an interesting one show gun for paul crag they fought before it was a it was a draw. So the running back. How about shoguns lost one. Fight one fight in his last night glass. It'll bring up his fucking stats. No one knows this. I don't think people realize shoguns been doing quietly been doing work. You show gun l. Come on dude retire retire. Excuse me sir. He's lost one fight since two thousand fifteen one fight. anthony smith. How is that that is indeed. Be little dog corey anderson. All right vigliotti. He's no punk anti smithfield loss to tyson. Pedro kayode paul. Craig split decision then just a little dog and split decision. Dude has lost one fight since two thousand fifteen now before that it got pretty dicey got real dicey. There's a lot of red on that wikipedia. There's a lot of rare but dude one fight. What happens if he wins this. What are we going to do on a world title shot. Grover she fucking shogun for the light. Heavyweight title is this two thousand twelve. How nuts would that be Yeah see at number fifteen number fourteen. Paul the jubeir crag fantastic name. I like show gun in this fight. You know it's hard to pick against his power. It's very hard to pick against his power. Let me see the rest of cartesian those. Yeah and so. I think pride the best most competitive fight on the card Either guy could be fighting for the title. is brandon marino verse brandon. Roy val brand roy. Vowel is a denver product so off the bias towards that. But i do think he gets it done. I think he's always looking for the finish Brand marino price should be fighting for atoll shot before this But i like brandon roy vows chances who let me see the stats on that the odds on this one it has me fucking razor ch- close pretty much twenty five plus one sixty. Mike is the dog there because he looks for finishes night goes decision. You'll dicey form. But i like Roy valda again. I'm bias denver products. I root for the kid Here my pick of of the week and I'm really say a lock but the way vegas does odds these oddsmakers do its popularity contest. Basically they don't know what the fuck they're talking about when it comes to fighting with a guy like joaquin buckley who has. The highlight of the year highlighted the past five years and went viral the most watch clip of all time on twitter for the ufc of that spinning heel. Kick that dude out. you can go back jen. You don't have to keep going to the okay. So when he's fighting jordan right. He's a pretty sizable favor. I think he's minus two hundred. Something they don't know shit about jordan right in the odds makers on this th. They're completely off on this. This should be a pick em or ibm say jordan. Rights should be a slight favorite. So if you're looking to make money jordan riot as a as a is a pretty good bet. This kid has fucking skills. Listen i know joaquin. Buckley did that spinning heel kick off on his nuts and he's coming off a high on that that was great phenomenal. That ain't gonna happen against joran. Right i would. I'd better get him out of money. Join right beats him. I think john reid gets it done. He's a savage He's a monster. Then these oddsmakers have no clue when it comes to this so those odds are pretty pretty pretty far and i think it should be a lot. Closer should be a lot closer so again. We're trying to make money join rights. Not a bad at all there again. I know keen buckley all the celebrities tweet and reposted postage. And that's all fine and dandy but that it means ship into your next fight. And i think join right. Gets it done and kills that hype train and joaquin boxes last fights before you know. It's not like you know this kid's undefeated fighter even though that knockout is one of the best we've ever seen e they didn't do him any favors toss him join right after that when you never know though. Maybe maybe that gave him. The spark get his ass in gear and and and take over the world but Jordan right is a very tough fight for for buckley. Don't let that hollywood highlight foyer. This is a tough fight for join. Writes the real deal The most attractive on the card. If you do like women would be shevchenko. Verse lipsky You know shift is beast bed. Let me see the odds of that one chin lipsky were never matt. That's well documented on here Should figure should win that fight. My boy alan jobin slight favorite minus one thirty basic even money bitch seattle Japan feels bad. He said surgeries. He's at a long layoff. So we'll see. Let me see the rest of the card Yeah again great card for hardcore unbelievable card but pay eighty dollars for too heavily favourite main event and komen of in flyweights at that. God damn mind man that being said on my paper fun card really fun card. Yeah but what's that walking buckley. Join right watch. What during right does there Yeah and so then you also have. Bela tor thursday. And this is the again. I'm not thursday night. Fights will watch in the green room in nashville between my two shows. That's henderson jason. Jackson phenomenal fight. Love that fight Your darren caldwell who's a Former champion and delatour ejei mckee. This has been well documented on. Here i think edgy mckee's gonna win the entire featherweight Tournament he's my i guess darkhorse. What's what's the odds on this little Kevin little slice ferguson. As well shout to kimba slice let me see if the odds are there. You go is pretty heavily. Favorite minus two fifteen. Yeah i figured. Benson should be a dog against jason jackson. That's a tough fight for j. j. wilson's fighting yet cartman. Little bird skips in all right. Y'all not matt tough fight for your boy bent henderson. I know jason jackson's mother fucker. Aj mckee will be the next superstar in bell tower. So go ahead and buy jay mckee shirts and showed and this is the semi-final your boy. Oj mckean the finals. And yeah he's gonna work. Missile belt needs new champ. I would he got jin. Also what happened over the weekend. Was terence crawford gilbert and i'll just finishing sequence here. I watched it live has never been the same at triple. He's i think three or four fight win streak. But i love bud there. You go as usual. Huge bud crawford fan. He's a motherfucker not my path round number. One is my number one tonight. You know it's keep yet canals win number one. Hope he comes over to showtime canal. If you're watching go and sign so we can do cool shit together But yeah but crawford yeah tell brook no poke man but it's just you know. Yeah here's a quick one katie taylor. She also fought over the weekend and pretty much destroyed. Miriam gutierrez is like huge right now. Like insanely huge nyland. Katie taylor yeah to her. We're friends here as well. This one. I want to get your opinion on my voice. Legs mcmahon feats fighting this weekend. What a shot to lex mcmahon. He's fighting dominican. We this unpressured. Saturday a lease. I think today's might be on the flight now. Fighting dominican republic. But he said this to me This is his boy who helped him get ready for the fight You might manage them to. I don't know which one guy got knocked out of the hell. No i would. I say that. No definitely the guy who knocked the dude out. Three seconds hold on before he played. What's your problem with this. You don't think it's real no not it's real it's just I guess you have to be ready at all times but especially in the beginning when you just like they start it and you just run in punch. It seemed kind of like. I don't know what not the coolest thing to do. But faina i know but still it's in a way to touch gloves me no to me. That's kinda like you're sort not cheating cheating but kind cheating just to me to me. She wasn't going to look at the student. You tell the sense. I'll just because he went too fast. You'll see i've seen okay. Let me show. Isaac real quick. What do you think has fast knockout every three seconds. Ufc at seven or it might be four. Does does monsoonal healthy fast knocked out. He does duane ludwig for awhile. Show dwayne bangla. Wig and And then there seconds is the fastest five. Ooh homeboy doing three threes. Tough to beat three me fucking tough to beat. Yeah so it's bare knuckle so not as cool as moslem all in the biggest fight the world running across the flying knee against the former world champ as well way bigger deal of course now that you think it's cheating hunt you that it makes it okay not necessarily cheating but you know kinda like there's some sort of weird you know an agreement he has make. There's no agreement so you'd literally. Oh i just run your much. There's no agreement if that's what you wanna do do it did. Yeah there's no there's no cheating they're not emerson not cheating cheating but it's just some sort of no anybody can do this now. At a higher level it's frowned upon. And you're not getting get away with it at the usc loving it fucking taken down or you know the guys going to step out in bare knuckle. I don't know the guy who got knocked down three seconds and it's terrible that that happened though but but You know it happens a bare knuckle at a high level of the speed tough to do. This isn't the highest level boom shoes. On for god's sakes but yeah do just you know you got to be ready man. It's bare knuckle. You see this all time and you know those backyard fights and they just go man they go it again. It's it's not the most professional thing. Maybe that's what you're saying. It's not professional. But you should like you should be fucking ready to go. He goes fight. You better be on your guard of course and that guy was more or less like hunched over for now and then homeboy with his fucking ever last shoes on some grip and just fucking charged them like bart simpson vers lisa. Let me ask you this then. So what about those times where you see people touch gloves but they touch it and immediately hit. Well it's cheap if they if you touch and as your that's cheap okay. That's that's just like it's just unprofessional. This when he's like in fight then it's all. Do you ever be ready to go. Yeah you have to be ready at all times. Yeah just like one. Floyd knocked out a. What's his name after. He gave her tease. Yeah after hug. Yeah all right. Here's a quick one. Austin van vard's is saying that Patrons that will probably go to belt or after her. Fc debut again. We we're supposed to have page on before she got covid I don't get the bare knuckle boo for her. But i mean she did wanna prove people that sh- like fighting her thing her passion she doesn't want to be this pretty face bare knuckle fighting. I mean she don't care about how the thrown that's her own demons like that's her reading comments and like i'm gonna prove it to you. Have nothing to prove page. Do you gotta do what's best for you. I don't know how much they're paying her. And hopefully this is making it. You know worth their time there. You go a quick update on conor mcgregor emporia. I guess even even right now. It's not one hundred percent sign that it was done. That's what i heard as well. But then i guess. Portia wasn't really happy with this contract. Still so this is the last. I heard of it. Is this dana saying that I don't know if he signed yet. Listen i'm not worried about it. Calmer has never said listen. I want to fight gone out of the way that he's gone out talked about it. We got him. His own date cog is going to show up and fight. I'm not worried about his agreement. But i don't know if it's been signed up soon. It has but it was at the other day. When i take the fight was done yet. Yeah i just. I really hope Poor figures it out. I you know. I i know it's a pay per view. Percents thing that he wants stuff like that. It's just if you have a chance to fight the gold green fucking elephant in the afc. You you do it because that boats not gonna come back because there's so many other options for connor once that fucking green ship sales back to ireland. It's going to be tougher to get it back. So i love portray. And i don't know ins and outs of it. But i stick by him. But i just i really hope he knows what he's doing because again it's a connor fight. I love parade. But it's a connor fight and it's going to be all about connor and it doesn't matter if it's doesn't poor a michael chandler or rda whoever it is because now they have other options right. Have chandler's i m have rda goes. I'll fight him. You've tony i. I'll fight him so the afc it's a connor fight so who who wants it. Yeah if dozens being difficult they're going to move on so i just it goes his way. Yeah 'cause dozens a body and i loved Pora but you're just playing with a dangerous game man and you know the chips aren't in your corner either. Unfortunately they're not the you know that's the reality of it so i really hope he knows what he's doing because you have to have connor fighting january then that fight happens that fight gets views and that fight gets money and that fights you know when the biggest fights of the year whether it does important associated with it or not so important. You got a huge opportunity. Could you beat conor. All my guy want dude. You know but if you don't find them all right all right do you. You don't find them. You know just another guy in the division. So you know. There's huge upside to fight. Conor mcgregor you know and sometimes you gotta your look at look at the future more than you know what you want right now. Gb county have more chips. Gosh so i. i don't know who's management. It is or whatever but he knows what he's doing. I just hope that ship doesn't sale on same art. So ali belaziz tweeted this thirty. No obviously probably referring to not probably referring to could be honest november tenth and then also could be posted this that he took asada test. Yeah i know dago. He posted that. This is forty seven times since two hundred fifteen as as doping. Just think about this number all right. So i mean i mean. He's not officially retired then because he's still taking tests and then plus ali posting now. I don't know what they have planned but it seems as though he still think it'd be just be that's cool though. Yeah hope you stick around and this is also really cool. You spoke to michael chandler recently about possibly fighting ferguson. Right yes he said Gates your chiller. I'm sorry h. E. or so i and finally seems to agreed to wanna fight them but generally putz yes for it added to the list. Bish there's all put there's a lot emojis. There's a lot of tags artwork Hashtag my matt champ champ to work though it is cool koi that's dope that'd be great fight Sign me up and if did go down the december card think. This is what this uc to said. This is a real pay per view. There looks like so far Yada yada algae's pin Jd s Gain get one teacher towards angel hill. Kenzi dern jinguang. He's always fun. Tori sousa sterling yawn. Yeah they could use more help on that card. Yes they couldn't w. fight are a couple of fight announcements who. I love this one. Yeah oster over in brazil alexander. Volkov headlining super bowl. Weekend love it. That's february six and we have this this. They've been trying to make this fight for a while but Too old heads. But they're like fun old heads. I ask strikers. he a great fouls con math. Matt brown retired. No i think he may be disc- even carlos condit said he was retired for a little bit too but they just kinda bounced a little bit came back nine in the afc data interesting. Isn't that weird. Yeah very weird. Just a great fight though and does a report kelvin. Gasoline and your boy ian heinisch. They're trying to do that for january. Thirtieth let's great fight to One more i think. So you'll see is targeting. I was in iraq itch and tell the santos phenomenal the march. Sixth phenomenal fate. Yeah fuck great. Fight i write. Let's till sandoz heavy lies the crown and they give him no fucking breaks no. Let's do this year so burns. I guess him and they have had beef for a while. But he's calling them out to a four hundred thousand dollar winner-takes-all grappling match. He puts in two hundred. He wants nate's put into hundred. What do you think some fun to watch. of nate would do that. I'd watch it course your burns you know. I don't know if people notice but world champion jujitsu like straight world. Champion guizhou So i assume he'd be the favourite in that one more sure so where he talked about the for Things so you think that's good You have an issue not paying people right you. I know they had to hold the season. So i know that's one thing. I'm not sure about pain people though But they do the one million dollar tournament thing. I i just don't know who he's gonna fight If you guys want to be a world champion that's probably the easiest route as long as they're paying them you know Looking up who have for heavy. I don't know most of these. Jeb bush potosi she she show he could he. He beats all those guys in one night when goal solve is the monster freeze. Yeah let's see what happens but good for him indeed and then one last one yancy medeiros. I guess Asada came to his place when he was bonin is girl so he knows that they probably waited outside the door and heard everything anyways. Here's his quotas. He was having sex in my living room savage for doing your living room. I don't take my living room and you saw comes pounding on my door pounding Best part him trying to be all professional. Look in the face knowing. This full hurt everything going down face with tears of joy been tested pre and post competition but during is the first. that's funny yemen. That's pretty much. It not a ton of news. All right all right we think questions as some fan questions all you thicky countdown for january first to start getting your mind right. Start getting back in shape. Don't wait don't wait. If are stocked up on supplements be ready to go. Once january first hits everybody starts going on new me new year. Yeah whatever dude listen you start losing weight right. Now get your fat ass in shape. Get your thick asks going with the best products on the planet. Best on the planet. I'm sick a ranting and raving about how god damn good the supplemental are on it dot com slash big brown ten percent off. If you don't know by now you're not a real fan on it dot com slash big brown ten percent off. What do you need. Man multivitamin protein powder. We got alphabrain. You want to be smarter. Who doesn't what are you doing alphabrain. You want coffee like me. You're degenerate need caffeine to get your day going. How about get coffee black rifle on it. The best of the best combined the collab- yet caffeinated crystals in your coffee. Dark rose is my favorite coffee on the planet. They stop senate to me. I think they ran out. Whatever whatever anyways i need more on on it dot com slash break ground. Timpson off fitness scare. It's impossible to get fitness gear right now. Not at honest get kettlebells get frigging sets. Yet clubs maces sandbags battle. Ropes yoga gear jitsu gear. Go to on it dot com slash big brown ten percent off. Welcome would look first. One is from fletch. Grafton bist being said it perfectly one. A fighter goes through camp. He gets beat up every day. Maybe coming in with no camp means he's fresh and quicker. Do you think there are some benefits when you don't have a full camp. Obviously yet. I think Looking back on the way i did fight camps and our entire team to invite cancel. We just we beat each other up. Man i think aka the same thing i think these you know jackson's was doing the same thing. I just think the more that time by the more educated. The coaches in the fighters. Get the more we're gonna realize we're wasting a lot of it in the gym and we're coming into the fight that eighty percent. You know. I look at a lot of my fight i was so overtrained men and there's there has to be you know. Overtraining comes from insecure about your skillset or just you know thinking that if you work harder that you're gonna win the fight and that's just not the how any other professional athlete does things you know. Lebron james doesn't you know play games right before he's gonna play a real game you know where he doesn't go nuts in the gym right before he plays a game or you know tom. Brady's not doing some crazy ship before the game. They come in fully recovered fully rested Ready to perform so again. I just think you know a lot of these fighters from the wrestling days and the grinding or whatever background they have overtraining is the number one culprit of guys not showing up to their full potential. So you know. I think we saw a little bit of paul felder. But we've seen it before with other guys. There's some guys out there figuring it out you know the figuring out in the not going to nuts wasting you know cell's brain cells in the gym anymore. Good question though This one's from coal dot garrett eight four. Can we get paul felder on food truck diaries. That's a great idea. Dan lewis paul felder frock food truck dropping this thursday at nine. Am michael chandler. My challenge drop in and we ate. Was it the putin. No that was with corey. Chandler and i had crabcakes crabcakes tasks. It's a good one though. I love michael channel. Also seeing this week in nashville sweet. The hr ellis show bud for suspense. Let's go let's go set it up. Brennan i guess he just wants bud versus. I'm mad i'm trying. I want canal oversaw. His mother fuckers. I want i want the best of the best of fight each other's the number one problem boxing. That's why the afc took over everything. 'cause we we get who we wanna see fight and box in. It's this promoter as this agenda and this tv network has this guy and they don't wanna criss cross because of money and the contracts and the shit show so give us what we want. Just give us what we fricken. What i need fury joshua. I need frigging canal overseas buddy. I need fricken Bud vir- spence this man. We need all this to go down. We need lopez haney. We need you know. Just give it give us give us the match ups who want to see. Quit bullshit and time learn. How have you not learned learned from it. Men agree the fan. Base is too savvy to it now. If you keep on cupcakes or these fighters we don't know. Just say well. It's bud fighting or it's hurts spence fighting or it's cannella fighting all right. Who cares man. Already coleman nineteen eighty-four. Will you have c two fifty five even break two hundred thousand. No that's pretty one twenty five okay. Emilio bruce underscore who stock rose the most on saturday. Rda or felder both answers. Both i think pulled felder went in. You know win wait unless he got starched in the first thirty seconds of the first three seconds like homeboy from bare knuckle. Just him making weight. Being professional showing up looked fantastic then. Rda cut a fifty five finding completely different opponents. Different skill set They both they both look great and they. They're both their stock went up. There was no losing that fight. Both their stocks went up. Okay blake sinclair nineteen will pico. Be in the afc at some point. Yes yes yup. Do you hate money go. Let go This is from nine. Five four dot damian. Who should filter fight next. Maybe beneath darioush. That's a good fight. That's a really good fight. A war going back to pico. I liked that. Peco is taking his time and learning his skill set and learning. What not to do in bela tor before he were to come over to. Ufc he's on the right path. 'cause if using the oc right now h- you'd be you know especially with his history you know he had those bad losses those knockout losses. He'd be out of the afc they to cut that boy so fucking fast so now he's got that out of the way he's learning he's found the proper camp he's using utilizing his wrestling which is a huge advantage for him. He's learning his distance. He's mixing it up. So you get that skill set. Get the belt delatour and then follow challenge steps maybe not wait. So long come on over to the uc. That's the game plan son. Or just your you. Don't become the superstar needs and be the face of baltimore. There's also that yeah. And they took him as a little kid. Yes groomed him. Yeah they came. You know you. He was young shit when they signed him so stay loyal to belgium. Come the face of bell or they did either. My man The question was four. Paul felder should should be kneeled. Ashby next or what do you think i dare you. Kevin lee I like the company went to dan. Hooker it'd be fun. They've already done it but yeah just be. It's a great matchup. I'd watch every saturday. And your boy charles oliveira two they also re already fought There's some good fights for god. Fifty five is a mother trucker. Jesus christ's okay. I think this is the last one. The new john snow Who's got a better mustache. Felder and older way anik rda or they all have pretty felder felder. Everyone else's bullshit antics. I love you. Antic but fellers thick. Jack fellow guests that magnum p. i read rodney stash. That shit fire and it goes with his face. It looks like should. I must ask you those other guys. It looks like the trying to sneak in an airport like it doesn't look natural for felder. That shit looks around like oh yeah. You should have mustache. That's legit. yeah because without doesn't fast mustache. There's something well. He looks like he looks like stephen king. No he looks identical to stephen king when he shaves her when he has a moustache geese first team. All doug do. I wish my mustache would be that thick. My dad's is thick like that.

"Everyone. Lori one. This is incredible. I don't know what to say. Thank you. Thank you so much for coming. I am blown away by all of this truly. I really can't, thank you. All enough, welcome to the first ever I ever. I want he wrote show. I've been talking about doing this for at least five six years at my previous employer. I tried to get into this, and it just kind of moved a little slow and here, back in February, Elizabeth Daniel, Glenn and the rest of the team at ESPN came to me and said that they wanted to do. Are you kidding? I've been wanting to do this for years. And then they finally actually did it. And did they ever do it look at this guy? This is absurd. I am I'm speechless. I it's hard for me to even put this into words. I am. So I'm so humbled that you guys would actually take some time. I know you could do a lot of things tonight that you would actually pay to come here, this really means the world to me, and it's crazy that it's actually happening this week for multiple reasons I started this show, which of course originally, they want to know what the original name of the show was original ridgeville name for three episodes. Anyone? I don't expect you to know this. It was called fight house radio for three episodes. And then we found out that there was a gym in New York City called, White House so we had to change it. And so, I decided to call it the MA our and at the time it was just so when I saw this how it started I was working for AOL dot com. And I was there in New York City walking in the office, and I saw little room that had the setup with, like a little radio board, and some microphones and security camera and I asked my boss, can I do show here I do podcast this in two thousand nine and I was a big Howard Stern fan and I said I'd love to show like that, and he said, yes. Sure. And they richly said to me, I kid you not they said, all right? You could do a show, but it has to be no longer than fifteen minutes, fifteen minutes, and I was like fifty minutes. That's like my intro fifteen minutes. I need a lot more time. So we ended up calling it the our Iran, obviously, for around nine years. And so the first episode of that was. Believe top my head June. Nineteenth of two thousand nine so we're approaching the ten year anniversary of meat doing the show. Thank you. I wanted the show to be the show of record. I wanted it to be the top show. I don't want I hated the word podcast. I wanted to be the show and mixed martial arts. So I worked my ass off to get all the best names. The biggest guest book every single guest in the history of the show myself. And I'm damn proud of it. I don't. And I love doing it and I keep doing it. And so here's the other crazy thing. A year ago this week. I started at ESPN how crazy is that here? We are doing this. We're celebrating the tenure aaniversary of the show, the one year anniversary of coming over here, and I know everyone was afraid of change and everyone was worried about leaving. But I think it's worked out pretty damn good. I think we've had one of our better years. But here's the craziest part of it. All speaking of anniversaries, because I'm weird when it comes to years and dates yesterday was the three year anniversary that you guys saved my career. And you know what I'm talking about. You guys the people spoke up for me yesterday was the three anniversary of that. And I will never forget that. And that's why for as long as I am covering this court, I will work for you guys. You are all here and that we could celebrate this together. I mean figure that that's unbelievable. If it wasn't for you guys. There is no this I'm done. I'm outta here. You guys actually had my back. And that's that's something that I will forever want to repay you and will forever work to repay because I haven't repaid. I'm sure there are some of you that tweeted and did all that stuff. And so I wanna thank you for saving my career and for being here and for always supporting me because the fans have been the best. And so when they came to me with this idea, I said, all right, what are we going to do? We gotta make the special. This can't just be like your regular old, how show. So I, I thought let's just do an interview, and then we'll do a Q a but then it got a really great response. And people wanted to be a part of it. And so back in two thousand and twelve when I was working for Fox Sports, I did one trivia show for them. It was a UFC tonight's special UFC tonight, trivia, dishing, and four fighters were involved. I think Rashad Evans dominant. Cruise Michael biz ping and Kenny flooring. And it was a lot of fun. And they really liked it, and they got great feedback unfortunate in live in LA, and we couldn't really do more, but I've always felt that a trivia show for you. Have see would be really successful. So once I got a lot of feedback, and people want to be a part of it. I said, you know what? Let's bring back the trivia show. I think this could be fun who wants to see like an old interview you could see that every Monday on the show. Let's do something a little different. And so, I started to call a few of my friends and actually had to turn down some fighters, but the good news is this is not a one off. We're going to do more of these, and this is just the first one, and I'm so happy and excited to do it here. It's going to be amazing. I hope you already and the best part about it is you're going to be involved in this. You don't know this yet, but the audience is actually going to be involved in all of this. I hope you're paying attention to everything. It's going to be tricky great. I love you. Thank you. Thank you guys. Thank you so much. I can't believe is happening. The real. All right. I know for me. You wanna meet the fighters. Let's go. All right. So we've got five of the best fighters in the world, you know, we listen. I I love everyone at east. I love all the shows. I'm a big fan, but the other shows peaches come and they have I bring you the best frigging fighters in the world. It's not about me, because my show has never been about me. It's always been about the fighters. Right. It's all interviews. It's me just sitting there and giving you like ranson and all that. No, it's been about them and their stories. And so. And here's the best part. These guys are really nervous. These are guys who actually fight for living in a cage, and they're super nervous. They're asking the questions. What are we gonna ask me about wonder boys? Trying to get me to change the whole thing. The Harry Potter trivia, back guys like super nervous about all this crazy. They fight in a cage for a living.

I'm not trying to kill my friends. Yeah. Yeah, that's silly. But so what do you think about the fact that so many good people have left the outlet that you came from and are continuing to leave what happens for the idea of independent journalism separate from the UFC obviously, you are ESPN, and you're, you're still being very honest about the things that you say that you want to put out there, what happens for independent journalism now that so many of the big players have left that. Field and went on to work for US PM. What happens journal? Honestly, there's only like three full-time writers that PIN a lot of them went to the athlete. Right. Right. It's still fighting may junkie. There's sure dog there's Yahoo. So I don't get this idea that there's no independent journalism, and we're certainly independent. That's why you know, you see our, our social media handles ESPN MA, our Instagram or Twitter, things like that. We're covering the sport of mixed martial arts. And I think we're doing pretty damn good job of it. So I don't feel like any conflicts or anything like that. I understand the concern. But don't worry about me.

Or at the very least injure jose in such a way that he goes into He goes into his his duel with sean less of a man you think i think i need to be one hundred percent to beat sean. Wow wow come out listen you can say that crap about me era crab shell shabby crap or honesty straight up straight up crap right right off to a great start here. There have been people asking me. Where the hell is phoenix. Bali i have been trying She's been very busy as of late. We're going to try to get her back on. At some point. We have to figure out what to do with the championship here. And we'll figure that out down the road but let's begin this matchup. Let's begin saturday night in las vegas. We had field assange successfully returning to the lightweight. Division defeated a very game. Paul felder via quote unquote split decision. Absolutely ridiculous that. I have to say those words into a live microphone. Rda looked pretty darn good in the fight. We talked all about it on the post fight. Show if you wanna get our specific thoughts on the fight itself. Go back into the archives. Check those out but we'll begin with you this week. You were very high on mr. Rda heading into the fight. He emerges victorious against under before we get into what this all means and we discussed this on the preview. Show a little bit as good as he looked in this fight. Did the impact of the victory mean as much now that you see compared to what it could have been against islam market jeff like despite being ranked five spots hired. Didn't have the sort of impact. Rda would have hoped for. Yeah oh yeah definitely did. That'd be look. Felder is a more well known fighter than Than islambad i mean. That's undeniably just has more exposure of courses in his role broadcaster And he's got a style. That's a little more fan friendly for people so in a way even though at the fight was put together in less than a week they kind of got a more high profile profile flight. Among i guess while casuals and mainstream then mukusyev ardia was of course hardcore is no that macelve- rda's was really a more more Implement stronger implications for the picture but No aside from measurement science just his performance. How good he looked like the timing couldn't be better because again we presumably. We don't know what's gonna be but it sounds like it. Sounds like either he might take a fight you know at at at another way class or we don't know if he's defending the title again and he could stay retired. You know dana white. Of course saying that might not be the case but right now i'm comfortable saying we don't have that. We don't definitively have lightweight champion so the field is wide open. And there're after this win. Their fights head of xanthos does that are. That are very winnable for him. As you mentioned. I was very high in him. The pre show. I picked him up. He felt about decision. I think i would But there was some doubters as to what was left. Because he's got a little bit of a slump beating at one hundred and seventy pounds but lightweight. I've really never felt. He lost that much. I know he lost that app before felder His reason fight. He lost to twenty ferguson. Tony perks that doesn't say anything about a dozen is diminishing skills at his age. He ninety percent eighty percent of his prime. Yeah probably that's still good enough to beat a lot of the division and good enough to beat some who i think he would face. I mentioned this on our african show. Someone who i think he could face an vacant fight Vacant lightweight title fight justin gave. I think half of the dose is that. I think he'd be ends up fighting the winner. Poor regret that he can win that fight. So not just Is he still. I think one of the top five best in the world the opportunity is there in the right. Matchups there for him to become a champion jose. The reason i bring this up because heading into the fight it was. Oh my god. Paul felder legend hero for stepping in to save the day and rda in a in a strange way became kind of an in this fight and again after the fight. He makes headlines getting the win. It's getting mcgregor's attention. But the story became all felder taken the fight without stepping into an emmy jim in four months paul's not retiring all's calling out those pesky wait Wait mrs and it feels like in a in a weird way. Rda's win is kind of lost in the shuffle. That's how i feel. Do you feel the same way. It might be lost in the shuffle in terms of headlines. And what people are talking about again. Paul elders very charismatic individual. He knows how to use his mike. Mike time Perfectly like you give paul felder alive. Mike he's gonna take advantage of it. I'd say to say whatever field assange does hasn't really been the type of person to grab headlines outside of what he says i know. He'll tweet a few things but he doesn't really captivate the audience with his microphone skills. He does that Inside the octagon as he said At media day. He just wants to fight anything's if you're ready to fight you fight. Whoever that's what he did so yes. His big win is lost in the headlines. But let's not forget. He picked up the win. He's in the w column. He gets the second half of his paycheck. So i think that's in the end more important because now we're talking about what are we talking about. We're talking about him facing all these guys in the top five possibly fighting for vacant lightweight title. If you ask. Paul felder i guarantee you. He would probably want that position rather than to dominate the headlines. What he says he wants to be. Who could paul fell to fight for the vacant lightweight title. Who could paul felder fight in the in the top five of the lightweight division. We're not talking about paul felder in that. In that regard we're talking about how failed to sign does in that regard so yes. He is lost in the headlines. I i don't think he really cares. And i think it would rather be an awful designers position. So jose if if he fought mock chef in one or if you find anybody else in one do you feel like we'd be having the same conversation right now if it would depend on how he wins if he squeaks out a narrow decision than probably than. We're probably talking about like. Did he deserve to win. Did he do this. And that It also i think would have to do allow with who how. His fellow fighters responded. Goes out there and knocks out islamic. About thirty seconds. People are going to be calling for him to fight a beep again because of what he did to habib's brother teammate. And all that kind of stuff If he goes out there and squeaks out a controversial decision. I don't think conor mcgregor is going to be tweeting about so Yeah i guess if he wins if he be islam maka chevy probably do more in terms of the dog astana because we all know the dog stand. The audience and fans is one of the most vocal in all of mixed martial arts. Michael chandler himself said the second. He said he wasn't gonna fight islamic. Jim exploded and now everyone adopts. Dan knows michael chandler's probably the same case if failed designers had beaten islamic Regardless of how it is but he didn't. So it's i don't know how i i don't know if he had i don't know because he didn't. You beat paul. If he had beaten conor mcgregor shirt. You'd be the biggest star in the world right now. But he didn't be paul felder and he's in the win column and now we're talking about wasn't extra half eldest son. Here's what do you think aka. I mean i feel like the impact of the win. Just wasn't i don't know. I just feel like it's not there on on monday as your record. You know what. I mean like most of these main events. We're talking about a monday. And tuesday and i don't think it's really fair to rda. I thought he performed pretty well. It's not his fault. That market jeff got hurt and he fought a guy who hadn't trained in four months still. He went out there and had a fun fight. I mean felder wasn't like a wasn't lost out there. He had his moments and he he beat. Rda up a little bit different times in the fight in fact even one judge scored for off elder so at the end of the day should rda beginning a little more of a rub on this monday. Yeah i mean like we like the build up a lot of revolved around felder stepping in. And it's not our fault that are judge christly losses dan mind and scored the high forty forty seven for For felder Maybe maybe fifty forty were bit much. I don't wanna give around to fell. There may be too but Giving him the fight was patently absurd. I think it's fair to say so but you're right but look this is what we're talking about right so it does say a little bit. About how much of an impact. The actual win itself. Had but i think when people when people look back on it and i think anyone who actually watched the final version numbers were like. I said as much as i said. It's his chance of getting another title. Shot or about how the landscape lightweight looks right now. I don't want to discount what he did what he did to win the fight. He he looked again a lot like the old already. I think it was I think it was our our man in the truck. These lied new said he he thought it could look or maybe jose who said it could look like the the pet is fight and it kind of reminded me a little bit of the five round champion win that already had against pets Maybe not as well. No i mean but a lot. So if that's the rda that you saw at you feel like you saw on saturday. Then i mean again. How can you not see him as a factor and seeing has back back near the top of the division. He just turned thirty. Six as that is so you know. I might be a little biased. Is one for the the thirty six years young guys okay. so. I'm i'm rooting for a friday to get it. I can't lie so i mean. Rda shoot for the stars. He calls for connor pretty unlikely to happen anytime soon. But you never know. Ahead of january twenty third. We are in a very strange time in the world but aka when you look at rda and you kind of talked about with the landscape of this division looks like some of the names that are up there but the main reason he wanted to go back to fifty five is that he feels he can be the champion once again. So did that performance did that fight. Did that win. Make you feel like you know what i think he can get back there or do you still need to see some more before making that decision. I think he can't look habib. Is the only guy who i would say as long as around. Let let let's say tomorrow. He's announces that he's not retired. Guess what nobody i. I don't think anybody is getting lightweight title. That's not named. W so it s already. That'd be kinda mcgregor disappointing. Just gave g twenty perks. Anyone you wanna name beat. But he's out of the picture. Rda is is more than just in the mix. I like. I said. I can't imagine it being more than like a like if he's an underdog at all to some of these names more than like a one fifty underdogs pori mcgregor gates. You guys. i just named Maybe ferguson Beat him so i'd understand. If for example was heavily favored. That's about the only name. Otherwise he has the skills just kilowatt to match up with any of these guys of empty five you know. I know the is a big sticking point for some people but just from what we saw saturday it. It didn't look like he'd lost that much of a step. So i'm yeah i really. I don't know if i can say enough that. I think don't be surprised if there's some circumstances where some injuries happened so matchups. You know don't materialize scheduled. Rda slammed into some sort of vacant lightweight title. Fight we in michael chandler. You know in the summer who knows where we just don't know enemies predictable and in a fight against chandler. I i wouldn't. I wouldn't count them out either. So the words half elder sanyo said light. Uc lightweight champion in in the year of our lord. Twenty twenty. one is not that crazy. Jose do you think it does that crazy or do you agree with the only crazy part. I would disagree with would be twenty twenty one. I don't think he's gonna fight for the lightweight championship in the two thousand and twenty one just because there seems to be a lot of fights that need to happen so i don't and i again if he got the title shot based off of like like. We had talked about like being that standby fighter. I think that would be the best case scenario for him to get that lightweight title shot and a hundred percent. I think he could be anyone. Not named habib made off. But i would say the same thing about justin h. E. i would say the same thing about doesn't portray conor mcgregor. Tony ferguson. anyone in the top five at lightweight could be the champion of the world. If habib never made off retires and i would throw designers right in there could be any one of those guys. You do this big round robin this big tournament of everyone fights everyone and then you move forward kind of like the world cup. It would be hard man. There's a lot of fights in there that i think it'd be fifty fifty match ups. Of course i would slightly favor some guys but connor fought does employ. I would slightly favor connor at. That's had no way means doesn't employ can't win that fight because he is a completely different fire from their first rematch. So i would absolutely grew hatfield assigned us into that category. Same is michael chandler. Same as dan hooker. Any of those guys can be any of them on their best day unless they face habib Who's gonna probably retire undefeated. Unless he fights george saint-pierre and other catchweight or go up to one seventy if george drops to one fifty five. I would heavily favored habibur made up. But that's an entirely different conversation. We can have down the road if that ever happened so yeah failed to sign could absolutely be the champion the world. I just don't they ll be happened in two thousand twenty twenty one. The moral of this round ladies and gentleman is put respect on. Rda's name k. Paul felder is a freaking g. For taking that fight just is also a g for accepting it and winning the fight so we will see where he goes from here. The point for around one in this great match goes to alex.

Here's we had to around of compare and contrast because you have c. Had an interesting car. We talked about the main event we had and saying nocco from one. Chaos williams in the co main event some good performances some bad way cuts and the removal of the few fights on fight week and then bella tour a couple of days prior to that thursday night. They had tour fifty two. And i have to say personally speaking. It was a fantastic night for balladur. Patricia pit bull continues. His dominance patriot cavalli menu. Sanchez looked phenomenal. Aaron pico was among a slew of great highlight reel finishes. This was the kind of card. Bela tor needed to get some buzz. And get some positive juju on the way. So jose we're going to begin with you. It's been a little while since we've had a conversation like this but who won the week in your opinion ballatore the ufc. I would probably say ballot or in terms of what what what the better fights because patrizio pit bull like. I've said this a million times anytime you can watch the best at what someone does do what they do. It's a tree and producer. Pit bull is the greatest fighter in the history of ballot tour. And there's this whole argument member a couple of months ago. A who had the rosters. A light heavyweight like Delatour uc who had the better welterweight. ac- we might be looking at the best featherweight in the world of massachusetts pimple. And i think what adds to this is alexander. Volkov ski responded to someone on twitter with i rolling emojis when someone's One hoople said he was the best way in the world. So not only are fans talking about the uc featherweight champion. The world is responding. And he's playing into it. So of course it's ballots or because everyone keeps saying Ballot towards the be leagues. Isn't that which is completely disrespectful. This patricia pit bull is one of the best fighter in the world. But now you see champions are responding and reacting. And they know what's happening so it's of course. Ballots are one this week. Yes paw fell to have the feel-good story as field. Asano's picks up the w in his first fight. Lightweight but patrizio pit bull was supposed to fai pedro combat months ago before the pandemic. He weighed in and stared down and the next day their fight gets cancelled because of the pandemic it they have to. They basically have to weigh in completely all they have to go through their fight 'em again weighing again stood on again all this stuff with the face mask and they find front of no one People put them away in less than three minutes. So of course belts are won this fight because of the face of their organization did what he does best put on the best performance. He could have hoped for us. I would absolutely say the oneplus emmanuel sanchez wins. Beats dan. michael moves on. Aaron pico peaks an ox skull rattling. Knock out in. Every he's one of the most marketable fighters in all of may not just ballots or so. Of course everyone. I think ballatore I don't want to say our hopes they would win the more marketable fighters one arab people participate ball Kerry kerry taylor melendez. So i would say ballots are is bid winner of this weekend and k. Who on the in your opinion. The you have c. Or was it may may for that. I will just add that. That's a good point that's None of their fighters slipped on the proverbial banana peel as it was and one guy. We didn't mention. I do want wanna shut yaroslava a now twenty five and may not easy to do. I don't care where you're fighting. And i think eight of those can belt or so. He's been fighting good competition and he was facing another unbeaten of anyone thinks this guy in very guy logan stories so if anyone thinks amazon is kind of like can crushing i assure you he is not i at ruth. The rickles earned their so. But i'm gonna give the filthy casual perspective here and say that have seen almost wins by default just by keeping this show together after losing its main event. And then and having some blake cancellations on on friday and saturday. So it's almost an unfair question. Because i guess because again as long as the ufc runs they're always going to have more general interest Has to do something. Like the kenneth have a great show. There has to be something absolutely. Insane has to happen for them to win. Win the battle as far as recognition goes So i'm not. I'm not saying which one had the better card necessarily. I think comfortably at the end when he postcards would say belter to but but as far as again what more impact i mean still the guy people were talking about the most over the last week were half sanyo's because he was scheduled to be the main event and paul felder because of his incredible story of coming in on less than a week. So we've talked about them a lot. I won't dwell on that petitio. Pit bull obviously has to be the third star You know has to be again if not number one said. But but he's in this unfortunate no-man's-land where if he blows away in dominance his opponent as he did with a value then then people say oh while he just fighting guys. Who who aren't who aren't high level. You know which is completely untrue is just. He's so good he's just so far ahead of his guys so and if you find someone who people and if it's a competitive pilots he went five rounds kobelco back and forth than the opposite euler saying. Oh well pimples. Not that good. He couldn't even finish covered in around so he really can't win right now. And and i think something should support my argument of why. The usc just kind of wins immediately. After these fights anytime pit bull takes someone out now and it was chandler to for the longest time when he was with bill tours. The i guess. Yeah but how do you do. And you'll see how you doing. See this guy needs to go to. Usc needs to stop fighting belts. Were and. I'm not saying i agree with that. I'm just giving the perspective of of. I think the way a lot of people view these things unfortunately and and again why i think. They objectively speaking One one the week as a word whatever that means i think people were still talking about. Rda and the of see even though already ucf elder even though again that car-free was subpar. I think i wouldn't. I would not call it when the most entertaining cars the year at to be generous. But but i imagine bill tuned in and the takeaways. That they'll they'll take from. It would be the main event the chaos williams ko. And that's really enough to to keep the you've seen the lead a fair or not all right so you kind of alluded to it. Ak we wanted to incorporate one of our favorite segments the three stars into the stopping because we got an even larger pool to choose from since we're talking about two events and you can certainly make the argument that more stars could come from the ufc. More stars could come from. Delatour is really a fun week to look back upon. Kind of looking back at these performances. So who are your three stars coming out of these events. I it seems. Like patricio. pippa is on there. It's pretty wide open here. Who are the other two guys or gals. Yeah i mean. Look i i mentioned cass williams. I don't think it quite quite exploded. As much as the buckley. Ko really no finishes explode like the puck maceio anytime soon unless again. Someone does something crazy. Maybe two-footed Had kicked off getting. I don't know we again. We didn't see the bucket. ko coming. I shouldn't say that these happen because it's literally anything anything happens. So yeah i'm standing by kinda. What i said about the design yeltsin felder being the big the biggest stars. But i'll put a put pit bull over over keswick over anyone else. Who fought on bell tour over anyone else who fought in the afc. And i'll just elaborate a little more this point of of why he's not the number one star. It's it's you know people don't understand how good he is. The recent ones got think kabaya high quality opponent Of course the current bantamweight champion. Michael chandler super lightweight champion and then manual sanchez. Really tough. so. And that's just the last four i mean he's he's had a lot of great wins his career. I'd probably and probably rank them. I probably rank them in the top five. Jose said maybe number one. I would definitely have him just usual insights. Like i think what i'm thinking how other media people might be thinking. I'd rank in behind vulcanology. I'd rank behind holloway and artega. But i'd have my ahead of zombie. Year ends a beat so maybe underrating him a little bit far as the star of the week. maybe he was number one. I'm still comfortable putting him third. I still feel like rda and felt it with talked about and i think the performances didn't let people down ice the build up to their fight. Like i said. I already put together. Really great complete flight reminded people. Why he's back in a world title contention as we've already discussed on the show and felt about so much credit. I mean i mean Credit to michael props to michael being for the united broadcasting partner because if you asked belder was like a one the white have you listened to the To the common jerry love it was such a valiant performance in his eyes and he wasn't far off it it really wasn't impressive performance for someone on five days fighting a world class opponent. Who then later said he hadn't been in the gym. I m major training for for four months so i still have to put them above patricia. Our house as so a ks list is rda felder patrizio. Pit bull would your three-star list. I can't hear you. He just three of the four people in the main events. Like it's not hard. It's like all the number one seeds to go to the final four in march madness. Like and guess what it works. It works a lot. It works a lot. If you wanna go against rock go you wanna make this harder than it has to be have at it. I'm not gonna do it very few times as all four number ones ever made it to the final four all same time. I think it's only happening twice. Maybe three times anyway producing them. At least two of them have made it like ninety percent of the time so it's not a bad strategy short but i'm not in no specific order because i never i don't really rank them like one two three i pursue. Obviously i any time again. Like i said the best at what they do like not only showcases what they do well. But doesn't fatty fashion. You he has to be included. On the list. I really think Our own gamma crews did a phenomenal job covering this event went. Patricia pimple on pedro carvalho. Did that piece where the interviewed each other in any time Gammy does that. I i am. I am starry entertains. But their level of trash-talking was so unique because they both speak the same language. People's obviously from brazil Kavala from portugal. So they both speak portuguese so it was. It was very a fun read. And there was this level of kind of animosity between them and produce people of course Tweeted that brazil is still the king which lutes the healthy rivalry. They have in the soccer world between page mccaw between portugal and brazil so bob participant of course grizz Ultra fight whoever lived doing so as a featherweight lightweight champ. And i honestly think could drop to bantamweight. Because he's not the biggest feather way. You could be a natural bantamweight like frankie edgar and with one archer letter holding that belt producer. Pit bull could be triple champion my mind you could be the lightweight featherweight and bantamweight champion whether or wants to allow him to do that and hold a three divisions because they want to do a bantamweight grand prix you would have to hold up two divisions that at that point. I don't think they want that. So producer people of course authoritarian pico. Pico made the made the media rounds right after the. Tmc's was on instagram. Who's on all this stuff. So aaron pico was on that devastating losing streak of back to back violent knockouts to adam bartsch And henry corrales. When everyone thought aaron pico was the next coming of jesus christ and he was going to be the new doors apiary and he could walk on water a water and a wine and everything and then he goes on this this losing streak to back to back violent knock ups like i said all of a sudden he's a bust never should have been signed should never fight in the main event. How dare you consider him to be the next The next door in fear and now he's quietly rattled off. A few very impressive wins in the way he the way he should be winning against the level of competition he is facing. He should be winning this way. So he's doing what he needs to do. While with him at jackson's human brandon gibson. He is completely new fighter and then he calls out. Who does he call out and corrals and boards not because he hates them because they made him better martial wires to challenge them and get that win back. So i'll throw aaron. Peaking than of course. Shall i'll throw in chaos williams just because he got another knockout and i don't i'm not. I'm not including design assaulted because we've talked about them at nauseam and we don't need to spend more time talking about those two because they're fantastic Chaos williams casing our at his fight in houston when he knocked out marino and it was absolutely devastatingly violent and then he goes in the turns right around and he gets another one in less than a minute. Someone said that he's like he's on some sort of list of like m- most submitted knockouts in like one county or something crazy like that on all the exact step up. There rumbled johnson in terms of that. And then all of a sudden people saying if you get if you turn around and it's one more win and wins the same way again. Why is it. He fighter the outcome. We're not talking about him. Instead of like he he turns around fights on like eleven days notes because another segment and knock out and he gets three like sub minute knockouts of one calendar year nelson keys. Fired the air. We should be promoting him as that of hamas and then i can't remember off top head but apparently he was wearing some sort of pin to bring awareness And it's really gonna bother me. Because i wrote it down at. I can't find my notes. Anyway he wearing pins promote awareness for some sort of cause and he uses platform spectacularly with the best suit. I've seen in years so also casting. It's in my three stars. Three stars of the weekend for autism awareness which now now the investment. I'm embarrassed. I did not give him. A one of those is also chaos williams because he promoted autism awareness and add the rise of the. Yeah it was it was. It was a fun week. It was a great night for balladur. Let's see if they can keep it up this week. Pretty good card on thursday. We mentioned that. The main event benson henderson back against jason jackson kennedy makes his debut against fellow former. Ufc featherweight map Baby slice back kevin. Lee's brother is fighting roffe on stocks. Keithly should be card good match up here on bt outpoint around to those two. Jose young's jose youngest even up the matchup. John get them that went. I mean you you basically. I kept the cats volumes The autism awareness lapel lapel that he was wearing a twelve. Yes so let us move ahead to the next offering for the ultimate fighting championship. You've c two fifty five and we've talked about this quite a bit over the last few weeks on the live preview shows this thing is flying under the radar amongst fans we get to flyweight title fights. Davison figure eight. Oh defending for the first time. It's alex perez give. Valentina shevchenko one of the best fighters on planet earth regardless of gender defends. Her title against jennifer. Maya interesting main card. Prelims have a lot of cool things on it but for some reason this one is just not generating any buzz. So we're going to go ahead and attempt to do the fans baby in some degree that you see a little bit of a solid and try to sell this car. Because i think it's super underrated heading into it. So ak you are the principal after all. You're gonna put your promoter hat on and listen maybe not. Maybe you're gonna take that promoter thrown in the garbage. Maybe you're not into this card as much as i am but either way give us your thoughts on. Ufc two fifty five wide should folks tune in and spend their hard earned sixty five dollars or maybe you feel. They should save their money on this. What do you think. Oh no no. No i look i if i'm gonna throw in the garbage. It's the scheduled lineup for this card. Because first of all. I would have had valentina in the main event. Okay i i look. I'm not saying that. I expect that to be a better fight than than three radio Figaro president is really good but at some point i think you have to realize what you have in shevchenko a. I'm not saying. She's a row level. John jones love mcgregor levels star. I'm not. I'm not saying she's that she's that tier but she's in. The next year of someone. I think is really marketable. Is some people at least. The majority of dedicated may fans will pay their hard earned. Money for and those are the people you want to retain and and and and a ps and some of them will drink a little extra cash interest in. Tell the friends about it. But and that's good so whenever he gets great right so i would have had her as as the main about. I think she's got the kind of personality for it This is her fourth defence of the world title. If we're talk about same weight classes. I would have gone with the fighter who's who's had mortell defenses and ended and really dominant right. So that's that's kind of the i would make. I don't think letting me do about that. I don't think they're going to change that. But again i'm going way back and i'm ben the roseland i would have gone on the fly ways to hear that. That's view poison. You know what i mean. We couldn't they couldn't sell pair. Ruses dimitrius johnson. The greatest fly when all time at the top One hundred who was was doing super fights doing the super fight with dillashaw. That wasn't like a huge drawing event. Right so i get it i get. It sounds crazy but as we said it's under the radar. It's not generating this crazy amount of buzz anyway. So you may as well go all in and go back to the kind of thing. All this is the fastest division sports or tell me what's the most skill tell people it's hot this marketing teams job. Okay you don't have to. You don't have to tell a one hundred percent the truth follow that. Follow your boss. Dana white and really sell this. So i would've. I would've brandon on in obviously would have been in the main card of revolver sobrino maybe not all flights. There's a show gunfight which i think you have to put on their putting that prelims would be crazy at. I don't think anyone would stand for that. But frigging i mean this kind of my third point is going to make was frigging mike. Perry get the get out of here all the way out of here okay. We don't need this guy was the robbie lawler flight. I completely understand it. There's no have been bumped off the being card. But him and ten means with respect with respect to means That could have been the prelims. I would've jumped up when the flyway cards Good for for. Its means taking that fight. But i mean my peres trash and the farther we get him away from a card the better market that can be. That's in my mind so those those are three things that i would have done. The crowd is is erupting to that. Answer jose your thoughts on this card. Should people spend their sixty five bucks on it. Yeah i mean. But i'm also a huge mixed martial arts fans like if you're telling me to sell it to the casual fans they're not they're not gonna listen to me. 'cause those casual fans will tune into watch. John jones conor mcgregor the heavyweight champion of the world. I mean they had. We made up a belt for days in horry mazda doll and that was one of that was like one of if not the highest on pay per views of the year. So i'm not going to try to sell it to them because their opinion doesn't matter so davison figuring overs outs peres bouncing. Schenk overs jennifer. Maya those are two awesome fights. I'm not as like offended by the lao of the card is most people get their arguments. But i don't particularly care because from the amount of fighters that i've talked to. They don't really care when they fight that a lot of fighters For fighting sooner a lot of them prefer fighting on the preliminary cards. I know you're interview brand revolve. He was like people aren't even gonna buy the pave us. this is the actual main event. So if that's the attitude he's taking good good on him for getting the getting the slot he wants. Who are we to argue against it if he got the actual person answering a cage to fistfight human being if he has no complaints. I don't know why we should have any complaints. Because we're not the ones getting side of the cage fist. Fighting another human being Figuring over cody garbrandt would have made sense as Bank cody garbrandt is obviously probably the biggest name of the four between figueredo him bouncing in my which is unfortunate because valentina is could be the best female fighter of all time i know she has the to lost demand news and on talking solely like the tat like how talented she is. People compare to like a female james bond. I'm all for that comparison because he knows like a thousand languages she's always shooting guns throwing knives jumping out of planes. Doing photo shoots within. She goes out there and just get spit crazy. Spinwheel kicks unjust guy. So yes honor percent on favor of of the james bond who cares and so But what would you spend money on it. Hundred percent figueredo is the only thing holding him back from being a abs- not in megastar crossover starbuck from being one of the most interesting fighters in the afc is the fact that he doesn't speak english Some of the like our own camera crews spoke after his big win over jobe on the first fight on car is he was laying out a lot of jobs he had he was a mason. He was a sushi chef. He was a hairdresser. He was a taxi driver. He did all of these weird things. And i am all in favor of davidson figueredo. Going back to his old job with Jobs with his championship bell and just showing us and doing those jobs. Would you watch that. I would if we saw dave figure out making sushi with this big championship belt on giving it giving them to the customers. I'm all in favor of it. He also takes phenomenal photo shoots with all the cows and horses yawns the only thing holding back from being the most interesting man in the afc is a fact he does speak english. Which is unfortunate because he is by far the most violent flyway in the world. If people wanna get sold on the container series outs perez is absolutely phenomenal only person. He's lost his joseph benefits. he's beaten everyone else. Everyone complaining about flyaways not getting stoppage wins out. Spreads has those davidson figueredo. Has those if that doesn't sell you. I'm sorry you're lost cost jose. Let me go back to you. Because as you mentioned we have two very dangerous champions defending their titles right now. Gedo more than three to one favorite. He's around a minus three fifteen in the betting lines. Valentina shevchenko anywhere from a minus twelve fifty to a minus. Eighteen hundred favorite over jennifer. My and i know that for those who are watching you watch the preview shows. They know that you give a one percent chance for anybody to win. Most of these fights in your heart of hearts on a scale of one to ten. How likely will we see an end. New on saturday night One percent one percent that is that's only because like they're obviously some fights like i knew he was going to be connor. I knew ron was gonna be bechke hair. They're just some fights that you are so positive that the other person's gonna when you give him a hundred percent chance. I give denver my a one percent chance because yes she has missed weight. Which is the big knock against her. But she's also like she's being alexa davies roxanne modifiers you just tap joined called wins only lost two people who fight for the title. Who's valentine as both beaten so i would give her a one percent chance. Because she's very on the ground she comes from shoot boxing background side Disrespect any for training camp so one percent chance but that is about a small one percent chance of given any other any fighter in a very long time. I think i am. I'm pretty confident. When i say balancing should get this done inside three rounds perez perez. I'll give a man. That's a tough one twenty five percent. He's awesome fighter. But i just think he got out. Glass by jobe jobe could be the third. The fourth best flyweight in the world behind dimitrios johnson henderson Davison figueredo and. I would still think i still think to two your johnson fly with The second best in figueredo just happens to be the most violent of the three times Be a detriment when you're fighting these guys such high. Iq's fight us leg majors. Johnson henderson doodo. Outside is awesome. I just think davis who radio is a whole nother beast entirely when he hits people their face changes. So i give i give. I'd give out resume. Twenty five percent chance of winning. But i think that is going to be absolutely awesome so he can scale one to ten. Jose's giving it around a one point seven five that we would cnn new. He's given one percent for maya to win a two point five percents for two point five out of ten for. I suck at fraction math. So when i'm going to go there but around one point something by using let's say you what say i think he's giving a point zero one out of ten for for should. Why did we start doing math. Mike you're the host. Let's just supposed to stop these. You're supposed to stop these things so it's one to ten for you. What are the chances that we have one new champion crowned on saturday. Sorry sorry repeat. That might my audio programs on a scale of one to ten. How likely will we see a new champion saturday men. I'm gonna go. I probably like prejudice. Chances a little more even than jose. I wouldn't go past like fifty percent. But so if i'm not going with your present and i don't think shevchenko loses at a ten four of ted and other doesn't sound super exciting but that might be higher than something. I bet you if you most fans are probably going one or two out of ten. They don't see either operato or Losing but i actually really do like ours presence. Chances he's if anything for me I i think the job fight was a sign of kind of how much further he had to go but again that was two years ago. That was the kind of lost at that. He learned a lot. I think he learned a lot from and if they fought again i would if he fought again i would probably favor peres So saying that. I think is much improved fighter and i do like his chances against against staff Figueredo i think we've we've said after the beating after he does the second time. Tell us look like bacon Being maybe one of the next dominant. You've champions but i'm going to need to see this person how he handles his first offense to to really be convinced. So and i'm a petty person. So i actually want to pick up on one thing Jose mentioned earlier. I i like that. He said Shevchenko knows like a million languages. It's such an american thing to say. I think she knows like four. I for americans that's like that's like a million. You know you uncultured swine. That's like a million languages. And i think he's probably like kirghiz russian rush cookies i would assume and then spanish and in english that's four languages. It's very impressive guys. It's not a million. It's a lot of very common in other countries More more cultured countries candidate being one of them of course used to remove very petty. I'm very petty. So yeah but at florida for it. Then i think i think fred does have a really a really solid chancellor math and foreign language just what you wanted to see here on between lengths umbrella continue we're gonna continue on this somewhat in our next segment but i'm telling you i had this. Ufc one ninety nine vibe to this card where people want to skip it ends up being really good and you end up getting upset. You didn't watch it but don't get pissed at me if i'm wrong but as it stands right now. I think it's going to be a lot of fun. But the point for three those two jose young's he takes the lead. Yeah he takes. The lead takes a leader. I love your positively. I sense of robbery review coming. I'm just saying already. I'm already fired up. Good this is perfect. Just just the question that you wanna talk about. 'cause you're excited for this one so i figured i figured rhonda regulation week with one of the big top talking points. Recently the fighter of the year topic i know is briefly mentioned on the show earlier but this year is pretty wide open right now and you can make an argument for a lot of people. In summer champions. Some are not a one who knows maybe more of those options. Potential nominees are competing this saturday. Ufc two fifty five so ableson figueredo has been named out there quite a bit. So jose start. You hear sure. There's still some fights left. But for the most part fighters in the air typically fighters who are champions or who could win champions in figgy goes out there and beats alix perez does so decisively is he. Now the front runner for fighter of the year with to windsor windsor benhamouda's winning and defending the title. Shot the one negative knock him. He does have a weight miss. So where does a win over peres. Put him in this conversation. If he wins on saturday. I would probably put him number one but we have. That's not a locked in a number one because like you said it's usually champions and it's unfortunate is. A lot of the champions have been tied up a lot of the other. Promotions had to take those long pauses like a pit bull had gone on this run in one the featherweight grand prix decisively. We could be talking about him as fighter the but because there was that That that gap in action of everyone outside of the c- we really can only look at the of see. If figueredo wins on saturday. I would probably put number one. But that's not. That's to say like if kevin holland goes out there and beats jacker manson. He goes to five zero in two thousand and twenty and beat jack hermansson. Who is who. Who is one of the best middleweights the world like a legitimate medal. Contender if he had beaten darren so we could be about him. Maybe fighting robert whitaker for a number one. Contender's five kevin holland goes out there and be jack hermansson. We have to talk about him. If hamas shemaya goes three now in the span of like sixty days and then goes and beats leeann keys unranked fighter and also and land landlords who has a legitimate argument to be fighting for the wealth way champs to the world right now i'm probably leeann edwards and then fights the winner of burns. Newsmen i i can see it. I can see common the ufc that Very high on i. He had his own scrum on the second of fight island cardi sat next. Dana white octagon side during the fight. So if honda beats leeann edwards yet him in there so if everyone wins if everyone wins said it's gonna come down to figueredo kevin. Harlan homs shemaya. I've feeling the fans are Because he's the most popular but kevin holland beating jack. Manson you have to really seriously taken into consideration. Because he also cut weight by giles when his allow he's called out he even offered to fight. Ed herman after china giles fell out and at herman was obviously you couldn't reached so kevin han was getting ready to take a short notice opponent. Thirty minutes let alone one day. so yeah you'd have to throw those to end. But if he wins on saturday figueredo for me would be the front runner. And what do you think. Well we all know As i as i mentioned in i think are nearly appearance mike. Tomorrow's mind already by fighter of the year. Pick up really. I have to stick to what kind of anyone who didn't see past few inches. I panicked. I panicked area question and not proud of it. I'm just saying. I'm just saying i know it happened. Fuel can check the tapes and knocking tonight. So obviously it's not it's not as as he would have been there. If if the gilbert burns bite pardon me not been Had not been postponed and he won any bill. Burns also would have been in there if you'd beaten about so which is say the same for this question before i kind of get into my sort of my other possible fischer for the year is i think it peres beats figueredo ned. He kind of in that top for fight of the year. I i was just looking so he also beat this year for me and oh geez. What was the other renova those. Yeah so that's and then. Obviously you put on top of that then in this in this year which importance hit by the pandemic and is prevented a lot of fighting more than once a lot of stars more fighting more than once or twice. Peres's resume would be right up there and again i think since a lot is pretty big upset. That's that adds the story. Lock that it would probably be like a knockout. Something like that. But i think even something convincing a knockout or even lopsided decision. Like if you just out working for five rounds. I think they'll get on the side. I it sounds crazy to say house. Press part of the year but it's not just as kevin holland. I mean kevin holland like we say it could be the fight of the year so For me though just to argue against big radio weddings. Great fighter partic-. Why not he said. I don't think for the two wins over. Benefit is as great as evita's is it's tough. It's like two against the same opponent. The second part shouldn't have even happened because he should wait. You could argue that. He would have gotten another opponent instead of benefit as the inmate that i like a lot of sort of little factors you can take into consideration to say why figaro arkan twenty twenty would have been different and arguably better If you hadn't had to fight benefit us twice but again just with the data we have. I don't know. I don't know if he's the front runner for me for of the year and again it's not his fault people could most of champions could only fight one or two times so i get it i get him get him. Winning three title fights. Even if it's to saint joan. I get wiped out. There would would not be the front of list. I don't think we'll have to see but other names. I'm looking at like blah. Hovis you know two fights yes but when when a title shevchenko maybe too dominant winds. But i i know people. Don't you quality competitions being that high with smart move from holland. He's just missing that signature win. Hermansson of course would be it so i think he takes the lead if he wins and then you have a bunch of other stars who kind of toys i got like calvin cater on their yuan. Shao chris cyborg to title fight. Wins at you know becoming a title to. I don't think a lot of people are going to put on the list. You might make my top five Again whenever people can judge it how they want and One little sleeper carla sparce. Who could go three and be but to answer i. I really can't give my my my fighter the year pick just yet clearly. I'm not qualified to do it. I think we've found that out. But i can say why i don't. But i mean that is margaret for. Why don't think a win. Over breads necessarily makes for greater the front runner for their buyers will not be in that conversation. 'cause she's not fighting Anymore is now fighting. He was fighting show waterson in january now and to do a matchmaking show. It's all good. I will say okay. You made a very good point. You made it very very good point. I wanna to get jose's take on this. What if alex perez. What if he beats davison figure it. Oh is this fight. Potentially for the front runner for fighter of the year because no one saga by alex perez and his resume resume stacks up finishes of jordan espinosa finishes juicier for megan with leg. Kicks so she just gnarly nasty to watch because goes out there and finishes davis and figuring. That is impressive year. Any caps it off on the championship. Is he the front runner if he wins probably but i saw. I don't probably three. You'd be the front runner on saturday. But like i said there would be other fights like the holland the on fighting the fight. Like what if. What if. Jennifer my wins. And she's two and she beads. Joanne calderwood and bounciness or shaneco. Who were supposed to fight in june. Do not solve the one in two fighter in the world back to back fight. So there's a lot of what if we could talk about so yes if outspread winds is probably the front runner on saturday. Same as figueredo. And if maya somehow pulls a horseshoe She's could be. She could be up there too but we have to see a plays out. I all right ak actually a jose. Go back to you on this. Because we mentioned like the non champions could win this award we got hans. You have obviously tons buzz. Three no the headline against leon edwards. There's kevin holland four. No lot of buzz in rada headline against jacker madison on december fifth is also guys like brandon. Roy val if he beats brandon marino. Three very quality wins probably out resumes. Both of those guys are being honest considering rankings and who they're fighting and stuff. His brand is the number to rank in this division and a lot of people's is the number one ranked in this division. The guy that should be fighting for the title on saturday. Is there a chance like whose resume stacks of better. We're talking these three guys of all three of these guys win all three of these guys do so impressively are you giving it to a guy like roy you've given a guy like holland or even it to shemaya of based on resume and what they put together. It's it's very. It's three very different scenarios in my mind because roy wood in three quality opponents back to back to back which is phenomenal and he he would have to be in the conversation on the flipside kevin holland. Whose foreign all right now. What is fighting competition. That is right on his level in terms of where he is in his career. If he beats jack hermansson that is one of the biggest upsets. If not the biggest upsets of two thousand twenty so you have to. You have to take that into account like him fighting up taking a massive step up in competition on short notice to save a card in his first main event you have to missouri than hans fighting liana Leeann supposed to fight woodley. If you had gone that fight. I would've won. He could be fighting for the Not gilbert fronts leeann edwards is is also an actual welterweight. Hasn't let's not forget homs for basically two middleweights and a lightweight that move up to welterweight in recent mckee so it would be his first welterweight Edwards is a is a is a level of competition going from reasonmickie in journal mir chartres solves leeann. Edwards is a huge jump. It's probably the biggest. I've seen in a very long time in the afc in terms of like four fights in in such a short amount of time. So it's it's three different scenarios in if all win they're all in the conversation but we all it also depends on how they wouldn't kevin holland sneaks decision. That's still a win. Over a massive over a massive for whatever reason he goes up there knocks out or if god forbid submits jackson manson the first round. I would put him at the top list of jack. that's jack. Romance is bread and butter doubts in ground game so we have see how they went. I but it's i don't look at the mall in the same scenario all right okay. Let's just say it's the end of the year and were thinking about december. Let's say kevin. Harlan goes in there and finish his jack hermansson in the first or second round the main event. Then all is. Ron sacha maya. Let's just say homs. Sacha my knocks out leeann edwards in the first round. We're talking about like non championship winning fighters of the year. If both of those guys get great finishes who you giving it to hollander samaya taking account all their other fights as well. An impressive win over hermansson would mean a little bit more to me than impressive win over edwards You can't really compare. Because i think hermansson is higher ranked Even kind of the the the stupid thing with the taking out of the rankings temporarily. I think hermansson higher-ranked At middleweight than ever light welterweight. I could be wrong. But either way i take into account the other winds at holland has the other ones that should have. Has i like hans resume a little bit better if he wins in impressive fashion as opposed to if asha my of wins in impressive fashion. Shemaya with a win over. Edwards will be the runaway newcomer slash break-up fighter of the year harvey wanna put it. Sometimes that also make it onto the of their your list Leeann edwards is number. Liane edwards is number three jackson number. Or okay okay so close close but it was still mean more to me i think to see to see hall and get that impressive win if as a competitor my of doing the same thing to edwards Help against chamois will be the front runner. For breakout of the sean. Brady's on their gentleman rigas advice. Really guys again not debuted but yet breakout right. So he'd he'd he'd win that easily it make him. The first of the year i lean towards halt. I think ontiveros newcomer shore. But i think darren stewart buckley and hernandez i think are better than the mckee. Sort of mckeon philip's wins mir. Sherman had the edge over some of those names. But it's it's really really close. But again a few more one more win for holland's i think the quality competition was just a little bit higher and i think the hermansson wind would means lamar so the man he might be the fighter of the year. What a crazy year this is. This is going to be a a long lasting conversation. As we approach december nineteenth and beyond and the awards will be given out. And it's going to be a difficult one to do but As far as this conversation goes it will continue. It will continue. You've tied things up my friend nicely done. I might have to take back what i said. But you know that the phony phony pistols the knocker if incorrectly predicting carla's sparce is gonna fight in a few weeks is not enough to give me the point. Lupton finger gun susan. I mean everybody. Everyone has been kick. I went for speaking don. Nfl has the best of us. I fell but i fell him about two things one. Everybody makes mistakes to everybody watches. The show knows exactly what's going to happen anyways. We're going to the snuck around question. Say tough say terry now no i. This is admiral. No everybody does that howard. As far as as. Far as far as i. And i know the comments below are gonna say. I'm forum. i oh i the shots. I just fired off. We can still monetize after those live rounds. That inspired so. I do apologize for celebration for that obscene celebration and let's let's get back to business. Frankly i want to see more and thank you. And i just wanna hear how aka performs in in the knock around and for those of you who are new to the program. The knockout round will consist of one question. You competitors have no idea what the question is and they will have sixty seconds to answer at once they do. We'll turn it over to the judge. The jury in the executive producer. Casey lied in. You will render the final verdict. Jose you are last week's winner. Would you like to go first or exercise. The winners option. Pass over to the st louis. Mr kelly can go first. Okay i wanted to as people watch the show know mike. I'm at my strongest in five round five comes. I'm a new man. I'm gonna say is that you need to thank the pf l. and for breach chauffeur doom for coming to an agreement. Because had they not you would have hated the question. I was going to go so we have to. We have to go with this. Big news surfaced for risha. Verdun as you may know by now as you're watching this apparently is the freaking. Tom brady of mma. I'm dressed the tomfoolery. From that press release but anyways so for them no longer free agent. He has signed with the professional fighters league and will compete during their twenty twenty one season and there seemed to be a lot of options for doom coming out of his win over alexander. Gus in but the pf l. didn't honestly seem like one of the top ones at least in my mind while talks about balladur maybe having the rematch of fate or one of the pf l. So what are your thoughts on this move and do you feel like this was the way to go for the former. Ufc heavyweight champion of the world. Sixty seconds are going to be on the clock and he matter of seconds. They're they are. Your time starts now. Well first of all. Thank you for Pf l. ceo. Peter murray for so eloquently described summing up of reserve rooms as the tom brady. We've often said you guys are doing. I'm sure you've all the time that tom brady's reproduce of quarterback in football so it goes both ways guys. It goes both ways. But i think it's an incredible move. I love i love anytime a fighter equality wetter goes to develop. That's because it's good for the league. But also i usually give them better than good odds to win it at no no disrespect to some of the town that they've they've grown into some two guys in there. But i cannot lie. I had to look up. who won. The last heavyweight The last few belt heavyweight tournament and and that one million dollars allience for anyone. Who's who's wondering. I did not remember that at all that that's me. That's not on the league and that's not an aside. You know credit to them but for a shot to end his career with winning a million dollars sticks around. Maybe the palmer maybe win an easy two million dollars. How how can you go against that We all want to the fatal fight. But this is a great choice for all right jose. Same question for you. Sixty seconds about to hit the clock forever. Doomed signs with the professional fighters late. Your time starts now I think it's fine. It's fine if he wants to win the million dollars. I'm all for people. Entering the octagon getting paid. What i think is going to be easy. money for. Overdue is easily the favourite to win. You can also have some fun light heavyweight matches. I remember one brian. Lockney jumped over yet. That random fight for who's going to enter the contests like i know. Vinny magalhaes beat for bbc over doom in the two thousand eleven eight. See a tournament finals So if they want to run that back in ma. I'm finding that. But i was really hoping for doomed either hop over the ballot or you can see The fatal rematch. Maybe in a ring on new year's eve show or hop over to one championship Verdun for spader would have been a fun fight but if we're strictly looking at this as doomed wants to an easy paycheck employees calls it a career. That's fine with me all power. He's one of the five greatest. Heavyweights i'd say may history. So do you want to go out with a million dollars. Soviet all rights arusha verdun signs of professional fighters league and now this matchup in terms of the debates have come to an end we turn it over to. Casey lied in the judge to render the file. Decision casey who wins. I'm sorry. i was googling tom brady. I never heard the guy though. One truck always top of things. Oh please spots ball okay. Okay yeah i think all right. Well tally the points up to jose did call the pf. L. cajun octagon alleged. Which i you. I approve of your winner. Mr joseph young man. What a battle. It's probably a bad sign. When i'm when i'm nodding along with some of his His choices for you has off. He's he was saying stuff in question. I i was off camera going like. That's not a good sign. Who was victorious yet again and with that you get thirty seconds to talk about whatever it is you wanna talk about good bad indifferent sport of mixed martial arts maybe a recall out of missile shoddy. Whatever you want say sir well. Let's let's get one thing straight. This three two decision is right. Up there with paul. They're getting one of the judge's scorecard. This is a clean sweep. This was five. Oh we didn't either james brown. I know the comments are going to agree with me because come on. it's five. I aka li like like ibm fan square above all power to stepped up on short notice. Sean i'll shot at decided to once again run away but i guess he gets some sort of past because chris paul's now on the phoenix suns Way thank you so much for everything you did. The city of phoenix. phoenix carnival. I don't wanna call you out. Because i respect the hell out of you and you are one of the few Anime reports who is see eye to eye with comic books and music. But if you want to go because we all know. I won that first time we threw down and i think she does too so either one bring them forth and they can lose. I don't wanna talk about what's his name Ted ned lead. Whatever his name is he's gone. he's out of the picture he's off 'cause planning pinky from arthur. He's out of the equation by aka. Thanks for stepping up and losing once again so so respectful right there. So respectful ak. You're the bad. I appreciate it my friend anytime anytime. You know what these are. Three taylor shots for me. It's all gravy. these are all. I'm like a year riot paper. Giving you frankie edgar me. All the title shot care. Just give it to me. I don't need to earn them. Holly home right allie. Home me all the title shots a lot. Well that's gonna do it for this week's episode of between the lengths. Of course you have.

Walk about a little freely. It's all about the journey right? Yeah. I'll say so in this case. So you are obviously a man who wears a lot of different hats. You've got to cost them. MD ARENA fights over the last couple of months. What have you sort of made of the experience of watching these fights and these events from that perspective? I think it really showcases These fighters in the. Martial arts right because. The craziness of the crowd is kinda taken away, and they get to work a little more right 'cause nobody's bullying. There's no nonsense so i. think it really as as far as a spectator sport from. You. Know the the audience at home I think it's even that much better. You hear these shots much more. You hear the corners during the fight. It's much more of an interactive experience for for the people at home watching it. Does it. Has Anything changed for you from? Broadcasting Perspective obviously with the. With a large crowd behind you and they're all screaming and rant and Raven I don't even know if you can really hear that with the headsets on, but has has your approach had to change at all? Yeah so when there's a crowd there, obviously especially for like a big main events, big championship fights. We can hear that like through the headphone you know through the headset we can. We can hear that craziness, but. Yet we've had adjust whereas I'm afraid to say certain things. you know I don't WanNa compromise the other fighter who's in a position of icy something in benefits, the guy who's in a winning position or vice versa I. don't want to help a guy escape running like that, so if I'm GonNa say something real technical. Towards the end of the last show that I called, I tried to like. Whisper it almost into my microphone as opposed to. Screaming? I feel like we're getting. Listen to a lot more under these circumstances. You do such a great job with with the color work and give me your insights on everything going on from a from a fighters perspective, but one aspect of you color work. That I've really enjoyed over the last several months. Is You know seeing you on the contender series calling those fights? Commentator perspective. Those events are going to be kicking off next month. Will you be taking part in the contender series at all once it gets back up and running oh? Yeah, yeah! I forget what my schedule is exactly but I'm I think I'm just going back and forth. With building. I think we're sharing pretty much the brunt of the load for this one. so I get home from fight island for maybe maybe a week. Maybe two weeks I'm not really sure, but there are some stretches out in August where I'll be doing a contender series on Tuesday and event on Saturday, and then the following Tuesday I'll be doing contender series again so. It'd be great. A lot of work for you, so you know you're to be a part of the fight island experience first off I have to know. What did you think of against the bill to the announcement and seeing everyone's imagination run wild with the whole thing, and then ultimately finding out. It's going to be an Abu Dhabi. Place that that you're pretty familiar with yeah I think I think everybody had just visions of these tropical beaches, and you know the the octagon on the sand and Tiki torches, and things like that, and it's just. It's not realistic, right? They had to find a place that was able to. This, so I always kind of had a hunch that it was going to be over in Abu Dhabi or somewhere over in the UAE so. I expected that and you know it's a little hotter than I would like. I fought there in September of last year and. It's stifling. Bro, it is like next level wet blanket. Steamy boiling water missed it in your face hot. What's it like in the early morning hours I? Don't know if you were actually up and walked around like three or four in the morning with these fights are going to start, but do you know if there's any kind of a big difference in temperature, aren't you? It'll still be in the nineties at four in the morning. 'cause I was cutting weight. I think at one one in the morning to in the morning, maybe from my Barboza fight and we were out on the balcony. Doing the mummy wraps and things like that after the bath and it was still had to be ninety five degrees, ninety six degrees, and that was, that was cool. which events you're going to be a part of or are you calling all of them all for look at you? The Grand Slam Yeah, man originally was to, and then they needed me and. I agree you know this is one of those situations, or this is maybe never going to happen again hopefully. Hopefully, this doesn't ever have to happen again right hopefully eventually. We get back to. Visiting the world and bringing fights all over the place, but as far as right now is something that I told my producer right away as soon as they announced his file I. Don't know where that's out, but I want to be a part of that. Before we get into the cards and some of the big fights coming up, we just witnessed a huge FCA packs two guys one fifty five one of them. You faced in your last fight dust, emporia versus Dan Hooker, and a lot of people were watching. You react to that fight on twitter I think you came out of retirement like four different times during those five rounds and I mean obviously I'm exaggerating, but when you watch a fight like that between two warriors in your division like what's going through your mind as you're watching it all. Man You know I gotta be honest. I'd say second round I was saying to my girlfriend and some friends are on was like you know what this this excites me to WanNa fight again, but it also makes me think about. The hospital stay. Both of those gentlemen are going to be going through and the pain that they're going to be feeling for the next week or so So I, was having flashbacks as well as just pumped up man fights with was everything people wanted in more. Dan Hawker brings it every time he steps in their man. That guy's an absolute warrior and dust and showed why he is where he is and why he was. A champion and is probably going to get a chance at that again if he wins another one he's. Of the best guys out there man and these are the guys that I want to compete against. You know if I'm coming back, win or lose. It? That's why I want to show. The octagon with is guys like that and work calling those fights wish. I was a part of that, even though they're in my division I wish I was there to a to call that fight. I would have been jumping out of my skin. Would have you made of the because you were an integral part of this by without even really knowing it I didn't know it until probably the day before the Paul felder curse has been floating around one fifty five for a while like if a fighter picks up a win over you, they lose the very next fight. That's crazy. Did you even know that I had no idea? I'm going to forget this guy's name. Again I feel so bad hell. He'll come at me on twitter, but this this. This page posted at tag minute. I responded I was like. Wow, that's crazy. I retweeted it. than the media started getting a hold of it than ESPN was running with it by the by fight night I was like holy crap. You know this is just a funny little stat. And I think it's obviously just coincidence you know I don't think i. take a piece of these guys or any of this craziness, the only thing I hope it helps out with hopefully guys will fight a little less hard against me, maybe A. You know. Get that loss then and then they can win their next fight, so go. If you decide to come back, you've earned yourself some exciting fights. Big spots and five rounders pay per view main events, etc.. And I feel like we look at your social media these days. Some posts are like hell. Yeah, he's back and others were seeing. You know some of your gnarly injuries. And of course you're a dad, which I can attest to, so you know. Maybe he's not coming back, so I might as well just ask you, are we? Are we at least standing up from the bench, taking off the NYLONS, sweats and possibly checking back into the game. Yeah I'm still training all day. You know I trained this morning with the team and eight on my teammate, Sean. Brady is getting ready to fight in August. my ears open. You know I'm waiting. For Sean eventually to come back at us, you know he's been coming at us with events. For this summer, I had agreed to fight al.. In June that fell through within workout. I think al.. Knee worked on. then. They wanted me to fight him again in August in at that point. My mind wasn't. It has nothing against Al? Sure he'll. You know he's not gonna take kindly to me turning it down, but I. I just WanNa. Wait I WANNA wait I want to get through the summer. I. Want things to slow down with this old. Kobe one thousand, nine hundred and. And Yeah then we'll, we'll see what's out there. You know I got knocked down. Out of the out of the top six there to number seven for with a guy that took my spot. I may or may not have knocked him out a while ago, but you know that makes sense so. Well right now you're setting traps for for Sean Brady and these grappling exchanges in the gym so last thing on this day we'll talk some fights true or false sometime in twenty twenty Paul felder fights in the UFC. Still maybe man. Still maybe, but more likely than I'll give you that more likely than not I wanNA fight I just wanted to be at the right time, and you know if I get passed up and pass by. That's fine, too. You know I don't want to hold these guys back from getting big fights and. We'll see. We'll see fight. Island goes and things like that, but. I'm not afraid to to retire from the sport I'm not afraid to walk away was like my post today? You know I'm not. I don't do martial arts just because I. find the UFC I do them. Because it's that's been part of my lifestyle, since I was a little boy, and it always will be, and there's just a lot of other stuff. I WanNa doing with my life and kind of like what dust employ said in one of his interviews I just saw where he doesn't WanNa. Do this to the point where it kills him, and not necessarily literally but you. Can just. Be, so damaging that you may never come back from it. I'm thirty six. Though we'll say. You're young buck. Paul bow whatever you decide to do. I think we all support you, but let's talk some fight island. I'll begins July eleventh fifty one. What a way to kick off the slate here because you've got three title fights, a fascinating car from top to bottom by spoke to John Anik this week and I asked him this question i. want to kind of see if you're on the same page with your broadcast colleague of these three title fights, and they all have great storylines attached to them, which one fascinates you the most from a fan perspective and from a fighter perspective. That's a good question I would say the most interesting ones gotta be gone and and and Josie Aldo Right I. mean this guy wasn't. Getting the winds wasn't even didn't even get a win and his his bantamweight debut, but The boss is loved what they saw. He's a former champion. He's always a drawl and he gets the opportunity and this kid yawn is. A free man I was there a believe in Russia when he made his debut and researching this kid and speaking, he was so composed and confident himself. Day One that I knew that this was going to be special on that he's gone on does done the things he's done? So I think that was the most interesting match up and then second. I would say. Anytime. You have Gilbert Burns, whose just now an absolute savage at one hundred seventy pounds, and gets his title shot against a team teammate. And now he's trying. You Know Who's been strenuous gates you. There's a lot of awesome stuff going on there, too. Yeah, that's interesting. You and John or not on the same page thought you didn't mention which is hilarious, but you mentioned you mentioned Gilbert Burns because. What a story! He's become an I told John Nixon and Despite keep sticking my head, but in August of last year he's fighting. Alexi Concerto on an undercard and then like these months later he jumps up to one seventy stays active jumped on. Some opportunities got some big wins, and now he's about to challenge tomorrow Zeman for the welterweight title on pay per view main event like what an incredible journey is Ben for Guerrino, getting ready to fight. Someone like you said he's very familiar with a guy who's been almost untouchable in the UFC. What are your thoughts on this? This championship headliner to kick off island. I think it's so fascinating. Right because you know we've had guys fight for titles in a and plenty of fights. Guys were teammates. Were they trained together a bit on the Mazzi. Other guys have shared blood, sweat and tears cornered each other friends with each other have been in the same room for years with each other now. Their sparring highlights these guys going out there on Youtube black back when they were the Black Zillions at the gym before Henry who've moved over and took over the spot so? The. Battles that these guys have had on the Mat, and now they get to do a five rounds fight island, a main event championship fight. That this is why you see 'em may so great these stories I mean. You can't write this stuff. Are you could make that up? You wouldn't believe stuff and it's happening. I can't wait for that fight. It's really fascinating, and you know even though they're not training together. The familiarity that Gilbert Burns is going to have with tomorrow is a huge story and you know they can downplayed all they want, but Kamar is going to face somebody that it's been like you said in the room with him training with him, and all these different ways. That's what makes us fight. Really interesting you know with the skill sets on top of. Of It, but before that, we get the featherweight title fight. We've got Volkan off ski. Defending against the man, he thrown Max. Holloway most people I've talked to or seen comment on social media. It seems it's pretty commonplace. All respect to Max one of the best forty five all time but I. don't see this rematch going any differently. Like what do you think? Are they crazy or do you think this one looks a little bit different this time around? No. No, yeah, I think it looks different. I think I think anytime. Max gets a chance to reevaluate something. Go back and look at the footage. Look at the tape. See what he did wrong. You know he was close fight. It was a really good fight. I was in the audience that night and you know from the outside. It was pretty close guys around me. Were all vulcanology teammate supporters so obviously I was kind of sucked into that and. I thought it was for sure volcan Oscars win that night. But. I might have a different opinion on. If I was watching it without them, it was close Max. You know when you watch the highlights. His hands were still there. He's still connects with these flurry of punches and I think he'll go back and fix things, not saying that. Focus, he's not knock to. Retain the title, but I think it'd be a much different more competitive fight from Max I think he knows the things that he's gotta fix, and he's a smart intelligent guy and. He knows how to problem solve in the fight game. Do. You think we see him. Come out with a little bit of a quicker start this time around because that's one thing about Max is. He's a little bit of a slow starter, but once you get into round, three or four and five things really start to pick up and you saw it in the bulk Oscar around four and five I think. At least two of the judges scored both of those rounds from the other one scored at fifty, two forty five. So, do you think it's important for Max? Max To to come out hot in that respect right away. Yeah me, not come out crazier. Reckless say and I'm sure that's not what you mean. Just be more assertive and I do think so I think he's got a tag Marley and let them know you know you took my belt. One backs gotta get get in his face and land, those Combos, and maybe mix up more of his own striking attack us more of his own kicks in this fight and get him worried about the lakes 'cause. Vulcanology, that's what he really started scoring with was these leg kicks and dipping in so I'm sure Max is going to look for a lot of that. When he level changes, these guys like to dip their heads shorter fighters at forty five and throw over the top, and that's what Max is getting caught a lot with so I'm sure he'll make a lot of those adjustments and yeah. I do expect him to come out and. Just have a little more pressure. Hopefully in the fight that fascinates you. The most will have a new bantamweight champion on July Eleven John Takes on Josie Aldo. And you sort of touched on, people could complain about meritocracy. All they want and allegation title shot coming off. A two losses doesn't have a win the division, but man when you look at it on paper purely from a martial arts perspective. This is a really good fight. Fight to crown, a champion, one of the deepest divisions in the. AFC I spoke to Peon a couple of weeks ago. He starting to learn English. I think we got through like three questions where he was speaking in fluent, English understood what was going on? I think that's huge for him. When you look at the match on paper from a stylistic perspective, what really sticks out to you here? I think you know lately. We've seen Josie box right. He's kind of gotten away from his Lakey game and You know his knees. It's really just been his hands that have been impressive. An pure yawns got such good boxing background, such good hands I'm curious to really see. How Yang can deal with somebody that's experienced in the striking department like Josie Aldo. Who's just phenomenal kickboxer and is really invested a lot of time into working on his hands recently, so I mean I just can't wait to see them exchanged. First Flurry of punches is to be insane because. Man. Josie likes to take these young guys and teach him a lesson sometimes and you know. A lot of people thought he won them rice fight The WHO's the other Brazilian? The knocked out with the hit him with the body I. He also did Jeremy Steven so I'm curious to see where the boxing plays out in this match up. Any other fight. You have circle in this car that you just are jacked. The can't wait to see how plays out. I have to look at the car man. There's so many fights in my head. Right out this. Blend into Four cards for me right now, you know. All at once I'd have to look at. Those top three. There was one fight on there though. WHO's the other two fights on the main card? It's on drudge versus Nami Eunice to and then Amanda Cuba's pavements. That's another one. We don't have to look at the prelims. You could look right at that one I mean. For us to come back and have that confidence in hopefully you know. Everything squared away and she's. She's feeling confident to make this trip to Abu Dhabi and get the job on because she was looking really good, and then obviously you get slammed on your head. That's a game changer. So. Where's she at mentally to deal with that I I love that fight. I can't wait to see that one as well. We'll touch on a couple of the other fights on the upcoming July. Fifteenth. Calvin cater versus Danny Gay Headlining Frankie. Edgar makes his bantamweight debut. He's looking all sorts of shredded. You can iron a shirt on his stomach right now ahead of this five page moon knows, but the cater versus e booking a Lotta people by surprise like cater had that emphatic. Finish over Jeremy Stevens. He's in the title mix one forty-five. That's division is crazy right now and e had a tough fight in a win against a former opponent of yours at some Barboza, and a lot of people thought Ed's and actually won that fight, but here we are five rounds on fight island between cater. Cater, E gay. What do you think of this one I? Am A mega fan of both of these guys I and I really really am. You can ask them I've always giving them nothing but praise cater his hands man. I love watching this kids strike. You know there's certain guys that I pick out that I. Think because I'm more of a striker myself and he's a guy that I it's just pretty. His technique is pretty he so calm in the pocket in that elbow that he landed against Stevens was so just smooth. He's punched in the face as he lands that counter elbow. And I liked it. He wants to stay busy. He's a young guy. He's talented. Just racking up wins is just GONNA push. You know. The reasoning for you to get a title shot after a win over Danny and Danny, gay I love watching this guy fight, you know. We share the same management in Sucker Punch and You know so. We've hung out with each other. We've been around each other and justice mentality man. He's that quiet storm that comes into the room and he doesn't say a word that you can read the intensity off any game without him, saying anything love that guy and I think he's. He wants to steal that spot. This huge opportunity really for Danny to come in after that war that he had with and to be able to get Calvin Cater next I love that main event. Yeah I spoke to cater, and he said. You know he feels like all the pressures on him heading in the, but he loves that he's very excited about carrying that extra weight on your shoulders, and when we moved ahead to the eighteenth because I, think this fight on dollars flying under the radar more than probably any other on the island, the fourth title fight for the Flyway Toe get Davidson. Jo Bennett part to hopefully figure eight. Oh, can figure out the way cut get to one twenty-five, but not a lot of people are back in beneficier based on how the first five played out. Not a lot of people talking about this fight Paul, but it's very fascinating is a not and there was some controversy there you know there was a head button to cut that really distracted Joe and took off his game and I'm not saying that things would have gone necessarily differently I. Don't know, but we don't know and I'm glad that this is getting revoked in. This is going to happen and like you said hopefully now Figueredo can go. Sit Out in that Sun for the whole time out, Abu Dhabi and get that weight off, and we have title fight yeah. I love this massive job benefit another guy man that anytime he's on a car and get to call it or to watch him fight. He such good. Martial arts, you know he. He's got powerful punches. His scrambles are absolutely disgusting in a you. Never hold that guy down. More seconds got a beautiful guillotine. And figure it was just a powerhouse in a mean fighter at one hundred and twenty five pounds so as long as he makes that one twenty five man. I think. This is one of them sleeper fights right even though its title fight. Loading under the radar, but I, think come fight week that could be the one that really steals the show. If these guys go into that third fourth and fifth round the way that they swing the way that they scramble, it'll be nonstop. Yeah the gasoline. Her man's on that car too, but I. Think I think that's a crazy. If I do I, think July twenty fifth is the most like fight island card possible because we have Ronald whittaker versus Darren tail until his social media superhero right now. We got a little dogs final fight of his career against Shogun. Ads in Augusta's movie up to heavyweight to fight for breach Overdo this card like is the antithesis of fight island. It screams twenty twenty in the UFC. DOES NOT LEGENDS LEGENDS ON THAT CARD and they're meeting on a beach to battle it out. Cool taste style man I feel like we should all be walking around like blood sport in there. I'm GonNa be doing van Damme splits out on the beach with my headband on and. I'm going to be throwing dust in. People's is just to make sure they're on their toes. Fight is I mean Darren till. I love that guy. He's hilarious. She's promoting himself. He's funny. And the boy can fight, and I love him at one hundred eighty five pounds, whitacre man, you WanNa talk about not only a A. A study human being. And I'm glad to see him. Get back in there and this fight. Darren's going to bring Utah so he's not going to have to find him, so that made events going to be i. don't know how long it's GonNa last, but it's going to be bananas. I'm very excited for all these cards July eleventh to fifty one that we got the fifteenth the eighteenth. And the twenty fifth and the Irish Dragon across the monitor from me is going to be calling all four of these fight cards with a freshly cut hairdo, looking like a million bucks so Paul. Thank you very much for the time in. This is a great stuff. What were you saying? By by July eleventh though so. Maybe I can get somebody. On the crew to to do their best haircut? Imitation when we get there. Well hopefully ten miles of area I'm sure somebody around that that private we will be able to. Bet they. Can sure my beard real? Nice over there? Those guys are. Right! The Pali appreciate the time man. It's all the best to you. Save travels. Re Looking forward to getting your perspective on all these big fights coming up on Friday island man. Thank you man thanks for your patience. Sorry that. I was driving in a car when we first attempt this, it's all good I would. I would wait another hour. You Paul for being honest here. Thanks to care our buddy. You're listening to me long as wearing.

See on nbc sports tonight. Bella tore on cbs sports one championship. You wanna throw them in the loop. Be our live tomorrow morning. Early morning Not at card like two weeks ago but there are a formidable lotion. And you have see on saturday. And that's no disrespect to see the titan cage wars. I haven't even looked. I mean they. They may have. They may not. Lfa of course but what do you think of this type of schedule. I like it. I can do it. Here's the thing though. I can't do it. All live because of the commercials and especially when it's like an internet stream. Sometimes it'll just go on forever so what i have to do is somehow can condense that time so what i've been doing lately is just waiting for the event to finish and what i do is like maybe workout event or something like that that way when i come back on the dvr. And i can just get to the fights. Just the fights the fights fights right i can do it that way but it is kind of a lot and and that's what you're asking from anime fan which most i'm gonna say. Most most of them may at some point where boxing bans or pro wrestling fans or football basketball. They have other interests in life. You know so you throw that in. Like for instance today world cup qualifiers international friendlies two and a half hours of your day that you got you gotta sit in front of the tv or a laptop whatever. Its frequent tough man. It's the thursday night football game you know. There's a lot of things out there. That are competing for your time so the way i figured out how to do this now just seem like i have to sacrifice some live events now last night. accepts see that i was able to just put on while i was on the treadmill and that was cool. You know on birds at ones with one stone. But i have to multitask now to get all the things done. And they're all quality events. Like i can't go the whole weekend without watching boats or i want to know what's going to happen. I'm hoping they have a really good car. Because they really need a good card here and They have some match ups that i think are pretty interesting. So i think it's gonna be fun and then the us's kind of a hard to to miss at any capacity but when you throw in that little wrinkle that little rocky story oh sudden with paul felder just jumping out at the last second and take tie off and getting in the cage rule at that really does make things compelling. That didn't happen. That card would be earned and maybe that would be a card. Where i didn't do it live. I would just come back and watch him. Boom boom boom fight fight fight but but yeah overall. I'm pretty happy very happy Because having the two three tv setup you can always one thing and watch the other and go back and forth and freeze it. You warm up dinner. You can like you said the get a set in on the weights or feed the dog walk. The dog answer a call things like that. So you know it that part you can do and china way walker call on accidentally up So yeah the ability to multitask is definitely something that one has to do. If you wanna get it all in and goes in are not just. Mma man's we watch a lot of sports so when you do get the thursday and you can on the thursday night game which used to be just college now. It's pro football and college. And then it's not going on now but for me highschool. Football's pretty big and a lot of it's televised now. So getting in you know. And then of course saturday i mean. Don't even have to mention that. Saturday and sunday. But wanna go back to dana white contender series. Here are the winners. Danny sabotage defeated taylor moore luna pinero defeated. Stephanie roscoe nicholas multi defeated joe lowery on the. Tom lobby defeated. Shaheen's santana and mario sousa defeated. Mario's oh boy. Did i even go there in shea. Which something went brendan fitzgerald was really showing off. He rehearsed it any nailed. It Are us shipshape wits I think after like the fifth time. I was like okay brandon. We get it you nailed it. You studied it. 'cause he was going out of his way to say n even got this thing to say a lot of times. I'm just gonna go with mary's now seriously. I had a lot of fun. Because i saw good fighters at lost that night. So i'm just bombed that there's not another more few weeks. Identify contenders series. Where they get second chance. That's that's the one thing you get by going on the early episodes Especially this season. Which got stretched out across four months Some of these other ones. They can just kind of like hang back and see how things work out and you could still get the call you can impress and losing Use shinshu sir. Whatever his name was he impressed me. That was jackson jax teller like he impressed. I would call him in a heartbeat and then also shaheen santana same thing. I would call him his law in. He was on the losing end on tuesday night but they took they took three fighters but i think they got their eye on more than three. So good on them. Love love why contender series. We don't have many might have two weeks left. That will one week left. So that's kind of a bummer. I'd be curious to see an update. On how big do you have see. Roster is cause for all these guys that we keep adding. I don't know if it's maybe just not publicize the way it used to. But i haven't seen that. Many people get their pink slayer their their their walking papers right like do we just have a bigger roster now probably i think right now you throw twenty twenty out the window. Don't worry about if traditionally they've carried five hundred or six hundred or four hundred. I bet you there's a lot out there. i bet you contracts are just frozen. I think there's some athletes that just can't go for whatever reason but you know like seeing what i've been seeing like the kind of playing a little bit of a hard ball game just because they're they're rockstar to the wall on liane edwards. I saw you and mike wandering an interview with him. That's probably not a fight that he envisioned taking against hamas should mia. But he is you know and then they just signed. Geoff diehl versus stephen thompson. But it seems like we're getting you know a lot of fighters that wanna find pretty frequently though those retirements hurt. Don't get me wrong. Obeef pseudo army silva come on you know but you got israel ready to fight again for another title versus the whole which you know. And if not him then you got gloria sharing to go so kevin harlan. He's stepping up you. Know he's fighting. The joker hermansson so. I don't think it's never anything. I don't think it's anything you can never predict. It's unpredictable felder taken off the tie. Like a superhero and say. I'm just going to jump in and bite and remember off elder. A few months ago was calling bites and then took off the time and ran. Back in corner jared gordon. You know what i mean. So this is the first time. Paul felder pool the frank trigg franchise the oh gee frank trigg at pride thirty two and thirty three okay. Pride thirty three and you've bought and then came back and call the last seven fights a pretty amazing. What some of these guys and gals can do a really quick last night on. Except see austin bauchi defeated enzo perez. Jazirah boy defeated kurt. Kurt hall about one. Excuse me. I'm just looking at the match. Senior star about kenneth cross defeated giral s group. Ask us Jessica aguilar defeated danielle taylor. And you don't want to wait a minute. Who wants to combined area. Sukhum dial one but it was a split decision and the judge actually had it thirty twenty seven for the other guy. Holy cow just remembered. I took a call from our parents. And i froze it and then when i came back. I think i got distracted. I never i kept seeing highlights. I was like oh that's right. That's right in the kept looking away. And i wanted to get to the beginning and i realized right now that i i only saw some of it while on mute and then frozen but i did see Aguilar versus taylor. Angular started off strong. Taylor came back and finished strong. And then kenneth cross. I'm bringing these to eglin. Came across the recent guests of ours here on junkie radio video video style camera. Krasula good goes. I think dana contender series. Messed up by not keeping him because he looked pretty athletic pretty well rounded like a savage talk. A good game had a great mustache going on So altogether i really enjoyed acce- and i still get to watch the main event now in other result but i still get to watch at least that because i heard it was pretty decent. Kenneth cross actually knocked his I wanna say two. Maybe even three times in that fight. I think where they were. Just flash knockouts any woke the guy back up. He looks phenomenal owning. That sucks z. Mistake you know. And and it's kinda hard to celebrate after something like that but he got the finish and he moves on in the tournament will see how it goes and no doubt and then of course tonight we got belt for fifty. Two pit bulls vs carraro. They're still Still out on zone in case some of you are still don't have. Cbs sports the citizen international. Show here on sports caster people watch it from different parts of the world if you have dissolved and not. Cbs sports. there you go you can still watch it seventy four. Pm pacific an early start in. Its three main card. Emmanuel sanchez versus daniel this is a featherweight tournament. Quarterfinal one bracket is still in the quarterfinals. The other brackets in the semi-finals mckee's brackets in the semifinals. This in the quarterfinals yaroslava imus offers low story. And then you got patricia. Frady defending his belt against pedro vial. And this is simultaneously grand pre quarter-final. So we will have. We will be all caught up now. it's don't get belt or hard time on this. They had an idea for sixteen man for the weight grand prix. They had their champion defend along the way the pandemic donor things up so at least we get to more of those matchups. This week to other big stars gary melendez and erin pico. Are on the undercard. You can watch the card on him and may junkie at four. pm eastern any thoughts on that longest. While i think it's kinda you said something. I think it was on spinning back. Look where you just hear something into disorder clicks in your head. It was the fact that aaron pico could maybe still slip into that. Tournament's should something happen to somebody along the way granite every round. You have less than less those guys To deal with but If aaron peco really truly has turned things around he's one of those guys that could be just about anyone in the world and if he doesn't slip into the tournament then you gotta magin between now and the end the end of the tournament. He can get one. Maybe even two more an which. I don't see why he wouldn't be one of the number one guys waiting. Whoever wins at tournament which you know whether that is a lot of people have pit bull or if you have jay mckee whoever that is that's gonna be a great fight and that's going to be an interesting storyline of its. Aj mckee because as the train together. So When he said that kinda stuck in my head. I'm very curious to see pico Looks like when you hear him speak. I'm very impressed. Just the way. He conducts himself the way he speaks to the media let maron pico has an added you know. He had a of hype coming in and when he came in future did not perform to that level. He had some hiccups but he's answered every one of those questions and he doesn't get two-day when he gets asked it he's very professional and he doesn't always give the same answer and i'm not saying changes his opinion. You just phrases. The different means very interesting guy Mix side anytime you. Somebody like that on a card. You get excited anytime you see fit. Will you get excited if i'm baladora. Bogus paid because fit will aside from just what he does in the cage. Both rose billy. They actually go out there and they cheerleader. Little bit for both. I thought it was kinda cool. What he said about michael chandler who technically was his rival. You know so. I don't know when you see names like this. It's it's must see. Yeah you know. I just wonder if scott coker was like behind the scenes like oh gee you be sad. The dropped out in grade chance for pico because pico about a year ago year and a half ago when all this started was coming off some brutal cao's so i think it was best that he just wasn't thrown into this mix. Even though you know that that that he's a big enough name that they would have wanted that but now he goes a few years removed. He's gotten some wins data. Swag back man. That's my prediction. Is i think at some point. We're gonna see pico pop. In the way we saw daniel karmiel pop in a few years ago at the strikeforce heavyweight bembry he was in the alternate route. One that and then Got in. i believe in the semifinals. I barnett and then Will be the final bigfoot. I think so good for him. You know And if peco can do something similar. I would love to see him because he is really an amazing town just happened gotten caught and when you get caught man that shin can be very very suspect on all good. You are how big you are. If that biden gets touched you can go down. That's unfortunately what's happened to be go a couple of times. You know what question. I ask people. Today i believe today's the anniversary of you'll see one correct could be. Yeah yeah yeah. I'm almost positive it is also areana celestis birthday. How enough because. I just to be on instagram yesterday and i saw her. Maybe he's a new mom and should turn my phone off. Sorry guys anyway. I was looking to see like oh man like she gonna come back you know. I was curious the rage. And when i saw agent on his birthday this like late last night but anyway go ahead anyways. It's the anniversary of. You'll see one. And i like to ask fighters and i'm probably gonna ask sam alvydas. I think you would have done you know if you went into. Ufc one your sam. Alvie right. Would you have won that tournament. You know what. It's sad to say. And some people think i'm voice gracie later on. I love that guy. I love what he did. And i thought what he did was amazing but I don't know. I mean. I think he probably you know. I think there's a lot of those that look at aaron pico or look at we're talking about pit bull. They probably would won. Don't you think i think at some point. They would have had to deal with the whole no time limit like we gotta figure this out. This big review can't go on forever. But i don't think those against submitted and i think it will but if he's matched up in the first round against gerardo or patrick smith can they strike with those guys will just some big dudes. Patrick smith was a good. What six three or so or don't think was about. It was about six five and so if pit bull get them down then yeah i probably submits them but if he can't and he's just kickboxing against those. Who don't see. You're basing it just on when you lock horns with gracie which is true. You know. I guess that's it. We're gonna we're gonna really really revisit the whole event you gotta wonder did they fight gracie i mean. Yeah probably they either get submitted or they start them and he's out of the way or did they meet gracie in the finals. Who meet along the way you know. I think most of them beat our jimmer. Som for sure right. Yeah yeah so depends on who you're asking. I don't think ben evita's against gordo. I dunno engano against gordo probably doesn't garner then get submitted by that. Probably knock them into another dimension. Who in ghana would not gerard dough into another dimension. Indeed yeah no you're right i mean I'm just saying you know. I think they didn't even wear gloves as pretty much bare knuckle and they weren't really doing any cap kicks league i mean is that the new that started because the today yeah. That's what i'm saying. That's that's how much things have changed the level of talent that you have taught me meal. Choose the one that started gas in round two. Does ep gordo. He doesn't finish gordo around london. Vp gordo gordo. Turn things around. Member goes no time limits. I think it'd beat them. Did you remember like just the reaction of when gordo kicked daily to lease to like it was just that like even the fighters themselves admitted like. Whoa okay these are people that signed up for that tournament okay. They knew what was coming and even they were caught by surprise. Like oh my god. This is for real. I think a lot of fighters the would have that same reaction i mean. Francis don is the scary do man terrifying for sure. But don't you think that the name russia they're going to win right. They win you one. Probably most of them were figure it out No time limits is a little tricky and then there's a few guys that i don't think are built for one nighters remember all. This went down in one night as well. So by that i mean i think there's the The adrenaline dump. I think there's some fighters just perform than they. I don't know if they're ready to perform again. You know the the sometimes they get hurt or recruiting remarkably draining. Pretty mentally draining And then the whole. I don't even know who i might fight. The i guess they had the brackets kind of said back then but they had alternates and they had so many things that could pop up a one time. It'd be interesting it would be interesting You know dan severn. If gone fights. Dan severn it has the russell for one round but then makes it to the end or farmers later he wasn't he wasn't one though right true. I guess i'm just talking about the early ones. You know gracie era but hoist figured out a bunch of puzzles. You know what i mean. But let's see dan severn and he takes you At the five minute mark buying get on your feet okay. Great you knock out dance over. What are you gonna look like in the next room. Are you ready to go. What if paul marlins beat somebody ten seconds and he's fresh. You know what. I mean that. That's what was so amazing about what gracie did was all the littler tangible along the way he had an answer for you know all different styles. He was in great shape. He unfortunately wasn't able to go in the herald howard fight herald. Howard looked medicine. Ready look like you're gonna rip choices at off. But i don't know man now. I'm thinking of voice doesn't have that concussion. Or whatever the exhaustion and if he can just give past like a minute or two exotic into it was his hit. Bright as he hip jacked. Up from william f chemo. Make us really. Yeah what crack me up about. Health howard was The little tank top he was wearing didn't even look like it. Was you won all ones in the rotation does those does events early on. Were pretty funny. I would definitely go back and watch them back on. Might even do that today. Go back and watch you see one over one championship. Seven thirty eastern or thirty. Am pacific singapore indoor stadium. That's their home and this is tomorrow.

All felder versus Though sanju we got him back. Goes yes yeah. Would you think of your colleague. Paul felder man on five days. Notice hoffa paul visit gangster just popping up. They need to fight like all right. Here's the thing filters been getting ready for like some five k race or something that so. He's like super skinny. He's really in shape. Is like you know what man fight chance. Why not go do it. You know so yeah. That's big paul. Paul calls a gangster man dude loves to fight do loves to compete in. I'm excited for him to get a chance to fight. A former champion sandra big fight for is it still like the old as an unity presents itself and you could maybe a little bit more money to since stopping a notice biter still do that or is it different now. I mean you know in terms of money. It just depends right. It varies for different guys. You know i you know i gotta pay Before i fly. Derek lewis madison square garden in that just became my fight. I rise like it worked out perfect for me it. Just whatever i mean on have fight became what i just may. Every time i walked into the some. There's room you know that's the one thing about new york see is i. There's always room for a certain types of different money situations but it does vary with different guys. You know business you know. Everybody isn't always treated the exact same. But that's not that way in any business. You see a wanted to ask you something now that your career is over and you know what. It's like to be literally star challengers guy not get paid much early on and make your way through these different stations. These belts finally to the or champ champion. You saw someone like you Go to dana because you have a great relationship with the. Oc a great relation dana. Why and just sit there and go. Hey it's time you need to give us five fifty thousand dollar bonuses. The roster needs Riders can benefit. I don't know just something like fighting for guys around ian. Bj and those guys early on fought for you guys that make millions why. I think it's like it's it's been unspoken right like i will leave that. Everybody started to make more money. When conor mcgregor came mike connors start making so much more so i think as the scored grows and stars like guys like myself in connor jones habib all those meal chits are making seven figures and not only a million dollars before it was like if you can make a million dollars man. You're you're you're gonna me. But now guys are making millions upon millions of dollars. And i believe that as the sport continues to girl in the stars continue to break through the glass ceiling the the the base paid will pay will continue to raise no ultimately on the athlete right. Everybody wants to talk. I always tell people this you know. And i don't know if it comes off as if i'm guided loves the u. of c. Which non-aligned wouldn't. I made a ton of money in my career but i think it when guys become draws in become stars may become champion. They are pain right. So it's like it's a matter of getting to where you are supposed to be athletically. I wasn't in any dressing by the way a union or association. That's obviously a whole other topic. I was just thinking something that someone with the influence like your cell could do. Looks doodo could be so courageous retired. Maybe saluto i could see him walking. Or whatever i don't know about even i don't know about civil but i'm just wondering if maybe rather than look at all association union thing maybe just one little maybe that maybe that's reckon cornerman. Gets his travel paid. You know usually. I think it's an ornament and then you out of your own. Ach especially the international problems. Child guys have to pay out of their warm little. W where you can now say. Hey look this is what. I helped to contribute. You can ask anybody. I only ask these guys. That are super influential. That's why the question comes to you and not like maybe we're going to have some alvie on the show. I wouldn't ask him that. The keeps getting a call or i. I know this guy keeps calling me. I'm not. I'm not answering. Can you guys hear me so here. Here's my thing right. This is my deal right on the why the camera went off. I i don't use this program guys. I'm very uncanny. I'm not savvy when it comes to like anything that needs. But here's what i'm saying right the cornermen situation. I understand what you're saying. george. I do believe that that there there comes a time where maybe you do take care of this guy right. But there are instances in which i like. I don't know maybe maybe it's like i'm to maybe it's too much like corporation I feel like if you and goes go to do something right. And it junkie pays for because you guys are so valuable to the company right. You bring the viewers you bring the listener. People watch because of that. I've always watched at to show because you wanted to show everybody else. I've always watch your show for you. I've always watched areas. You'll for area watch. I know the guys that do the shows so when they fly you guys there wherever you. you know. whatever you're doing it's because you bring value right. Those younger guys start. They have a corner in themselves. You know in they pay for that but then as the guys will older in a growing career. It's hard for a guy to say him. I need more whatever you know. You're not necessarily agreement back all that much in business but like just gates you right. Justin gay cheat was headlining. Abu dhabi filed just as dina. Hey parents have never been. Can they fly on the charter. Would sure whatever it takes all family right but again just engage you bring is to that fight so mean it's almost like as you add value you have more More things come your way. I'm being. I'm being honest man. It's like i think that's how it is in most business most businesses this way so i just don't see many guys stepping outside of themselves to do that as we go forward How does retire mule so far to you is it is fulfilling in the sense that this is what you wanted and you could see yourself doing this for the next five years in iran. My implying a comebacker. Now that you're you're already see that you're going to have to announce a lot or coach a lot like. Is it exactly how you want the perfect coaching announcing in other on in old crazy george's in two thousand eighteen. I fought three times right. I fought them by nineteen only fault. One time. two thousand twenty. I only one time. So it's not like i was very active so all that time away from the octagon i was essentially just living the life that i'm living today right like working. Tv in doing all my outside jobs just to continue to build my future. I wasn't really fighting very often anymore. So it's not like it's much different. The only thing is now. I have that finality to it right. I know that. I'm not gonna be fighting again and i've accepted that. So it's not what difference honestly but it's just knowing that there is no more training camps coming up but you know what would that be inset. It's also sad. You know like the other day one of my friends chain. He's from he's from tree career. I'm sure you guys have seen in my whole career. They sponsored me in the oxygen. Before we saw became break friends. He came to the house. The day dropped off in xbox series x for my son's birthday are for since christmas. Well we're just trying of sit in the garage talking and it was like you know the clips come up with us in training camp. Let's do in these things. It does make you miss it. But that's the only difference. Now opposed to what i was doing the last couple of years. Abc on a scale of one to ten. How much do you. I i like you guys. I think you guys have been so so nice to meet from the very start. My career We've had some great fun times. I think he has great again a lot. Like you guys have bought a seven eight way up there. Let's a hey listen. That's about as much like my wife series zero near the theory. Rarified air go eagles struggling what kind of a question regret goes well now. 'cause i i wanted to make sure that he wouldn't kill me when i asked him. Hey you just back out. And come. I will i will. I'll do that. I'll do that like what is going on here. I answer the a seven grade. I'll take it no. Okay what's your thinking that is the same as Of and say hey man give goes a pat on the back. Thinking needs or something. I remember guys. This is live so We don't usually do recordings. We can kind of take a break and figure the little problems out because it's live. We had to do that. And i know you guys wanna see daniel coordinators face. So that's why we we had him back out here and come back on. What happens is they don't have their phone on. Do not disturb calm and the the whole thing kind of goes caputo so George talk for second while. I do what i need to do with the other guy. I all right sounds good all right so while. Dc comes back lifts. That is morrison here. Think so comfortable. Daniel cormie bobblehead hall nice. It's nice look at that show. It debuted a few weeks ago. And we may bobblehead dot com is where you can get yours and get this. We're getting close to christmas. They also have the ornaments for your tree. I never would have thought that. I would have any of this though using john jones on his christmas tree of me. Yep look at that night search or george. This is why i love you guys so much. Kickbacks you'll dc fighter shirt men. Mike was blocking this whole journey. This whole journey when you guys have been so supportive and i really do appreciate it. I really really do comes in this awesome box. Right here is awesome. Yeah that was after aerodyne workout. I was just finishing working on brian. I am the bay took a picture or maybe it was easy to sandwich. One of those guys took a photo and I just turned out to be a fantastic pitcher so teed menacing look sweat pouring off you look like you mean business. Awesome man yeah. Bobblehead just came out with that. You've gotten yours already at home. Your relatives avenue or decently so the house is to pick them up in the post office after. Go get him. I was gone for the last three weeks so from finally home. Now i can start to get things done in in my life and order. yeah My boxes signed but i want my bobbehead sign so hopefully. Hopefully we see you in vegas your next announcing i work on the twenty first. I work next week or the show on the twenty-first right. When i'm dave davison. Figueredo fights against alex perez. I worked yes a good one. I'm excited about that fight. The i mean davis a trigger radio the type of power. This kid generates at one hundred. Twenty five pounds is insane in alex. Perez has shown over time that he's just approved to be such a dangerous complete mixed martial arts than me. He fences last night with leg. Kicks i mean this. Fight is going to be insane. Great to have those types of fights one hundred twenty five pounds because for a long time detail was so dominant right people kind of started to two now the weight class but the reality is it's a fantastic waco's by the way i wanted to go with something to All this talk about you know you go into dana. Ride on behalf of the fighters came from yesterday. When we're talking to matt scriven. This guy will that year that came off his opponent the other day. That was worldstar. Stevo was saying you should have got a bonus you know and and i started. I've been thinking about this for a while. Why the you seen Wendy of rapid bonus. I've also thought about like the cornermen thing. And then some of the retired fighters like mark coleman seeing what he's doing might wondering. When will they be in bell and get to the Lozo irons no. No i understand like i understand. All this stuff makes sense. I have to believe that for that kid. With the year there will be helped. I mean you've. Ufc will help him to try to help him get back healthy in honesty even though the backside bonuses aren't as prominent as they once were. I'm sure they'll get something kicked in their direction. There was a kid that fog At five dollars just recently and it was like it was as much of a performance bonus. Earning victory that i had seen in but the fight car was so good that i'm sure going back. He'll get a bonus right. It was almost unspoken to talk In the back with the boston. I'll take you and that's pretty much all you can get for. The you'll see does a lot of things that are known to the general public. And i'm not just saying this because i worked for the. I'm telling you this. Because i've seen it happen. I've seen them do things. Look so many times we have our superstars in athletes they duties special things for their communities but then he posted on the internet. That doesn't mean that other people are doing things mean every year. My family and i we try to do stuff in the community before christmas. Kids less fortunate. I don't post it though because it's not for that it's for those kids you don't need to make public but i think ese does a lot of those things too. I remember when the whole bellcore came in scott was paying guys Because the fight got cancelled deck. That's fantastic told us to bob. Cooking boggles do. He has been doing this for years but they just don't not. It's not public. So i think that A lot of these things are done behind closed doors in not really made into big deal there. Nope i wanted to ask you a question. I just wanna tie in a couple of things that are going on in the world today. What's going on with you. And i started thinking. Obviously a lot of people been tuning into this presidential election and one point. Start thinking man. What if this happen but in the ufc at our data your terms up we gotta come up with somebody new. Who would you pick to run for that office. And would you be that guy. Would you want a job man. I speak to dana in the stress. That this dude is under is so tremendous like you don't understand we're on fight will what are you doing all day. He's going eagle. Dc got no idea what it takes to keep this on right now. it The stress of this job is so heavy that i don't know who could do the job outside of him. I mean honestly Scott coker the job that he has to do is so difficult. Has a mike kogan in his life to help him like Hunter helps dana. Is such a hard job that i don't know who could do these jobs. Outside of the men that are doing them right now. So i don't know who i'll pick. I don't know who would be. Who could handle the stress of trying to run the ufc belot or for that matter. The jobs are these hardy jobs in the world. So when guys sign up to the president you got to be out of your frigging mind. Who is the president like. It's so hard it's such a hard job you won't be the president that's what your life like. It's crazy why you were the first name. I thought i think it'd be really good at that. One day lindsay is such a hard job. It's such a hard job. I just hope that dane is doing it for a long time. No obviously i think anyone would ever have an opportunity to do something like that would be an idiot not to try. But it's not guaranteed that even if you were to give a job like that. Roger goodell in frigging adam silver. Like those guys are. Those are hard jobs especially now is the pandemic and then another thing. I wanted to ask you something. That kind of just went on not too long ago. Yesterday was the one year anniversary of the one year anniversary of. Ufc one and You today this morning on. Do you remember when you're first interviews with us. Man bob combing the throw a kick right. You're still kinda limited. Indeed you feel like even that limited daniel cormie with with your your college wrestling experience on that. Could you have gone up. See one wanted. Because i think choice grayson was in. Usc one wasn't he like submitting everybody. But i think you saw guys like myself. Kevin radical men and mark coleman those guys that did striking anyway. We'll take down. Ground him out in when fights so I did okay. Nine to sit here. And say i was going to be racing. Portland did okay. Because you had that background. Because we've seen of my coaches kevin. Jackson he fought. He got submitted right. So you could. You could have done. Well gotten this far as you needed to go without. Absolutely being the best because the cage got he might have won a tournament in any flood frankfurter belt and got submitted. Twenty seconds so you gotta have a rounded out your skillset had to start coming around even back then in order to be successful at the highest level. Now you're giving yourself enough. Credit here ever been matriculation. There's a three digit in the house. Ridable figure out. What's going on. I can on him the whole time. You're gone in the walls. I can't your holy shit. I don't want him to sit in the house. I'm so scared of burger. I'll talk to dc covert rid of this guy's flying anywhere whisper i e c. That's got a lot of breath. I've been chasing his mother. Coronal hey. dc. What do you think of swagger jacker tonight. You know what. I mean or should explain it. I don't know what that means exactly wrote like a lover wing or yawn wins all the ones that have been waiting winning Main events and in the superstars. Like yourself. And i'm not saying you're one but there's a lot of superstars that are out there that it only that congratulations. But only they get in the door and like mimi like a little bit of times john connor. Sometimes it can be so gracious. You see it. You buchan visiting gracious but another times. I feel like they just take that. Shine away from the guy that competed. And i think it's awesome when the superstars like yourself and john connor and everybody else chime in and ready to go retirement. You're the man. This and that but not throw themselves into the conversation on fight night also when i fought when i did this. I did this for anderson recently. I said listen to get into fights. You was one of the greatest nights in my life. I go i remember watching it. You'll see one on one. The first time i've ever fought Or been there. You know. But i i can't. I just wanted to congratulate him. And i try to congratulate these athletes on their big performances. I think i think sometimes you know we as athletes we. We all have eagles right. We all have massive eagles in active competitors They don't like the spotlight to stray too far away from them. I think that's why you get that. At times. i feel like sometimes. It's a great opportunity promoted itself because all eyeballs on the sport. I get that art. And i get so crimes it makes sense you know. Especially let's say on a fight yard or wanna fight not making noise that that night at the same time. I don't know like like you guys are such a great great for thirty. You know at times. And then i think when there's time it compete you. You build up a rivalry in it can get heated and all but it seems like a fight night when everyone's just their own jalen. I'd like to give the guy her get it. Is the guys have their moment. Because guess what. George we have been blessed with so many like we've been blessed with so many moments moments got people are just hoping to have one right. I had a ton ton of them in those moments will continue. Because we're on tv every day and you don't go away right. Your legacy always stays behind. I think that the guys that you talk about we need to really sometimes take a step to aside side understand that it does. It can be about the guy for one night. It doesn't have to be about him the whole time but give him this time especially performances like that You know. I think the biggest case of that recently was when habib was demand in jones. Just lost his mind. It wasn't him so he lost his mind. Like it's okay if everybody this guy just had such a great performance under the circumstances lost his father. Now everybody's discuss the vests. Okay okay for years. People have been saying your best right. It should not offend you to the point that you feel like you have to go on this tangent to aunts Pretty much as every single tweet that was central to answer every tweet since you you have that many follower so just think sometimes you gotta let gordy ego and realized that read the room pick your time in doodles things in those moments. That are necessary. Do you like having the mic. Drop moment yourself or do you like your army comes and says it on your behalf and you can kill you know. Let them speak about how war which is usually what the media and fans do another way but no some people do their own brawlers well. I don't mind arguing people. Sometimes i think that that happened. As i got later in my career i was more open to addressing the badminton. Sadly you're responding to the people that say negative things in all supporters. You just kind of ignore it almost appraise that. They're they're heaping on you so i think we need to really recognize what we have in front of us. We all support Be i prefer my fans and my friends and everybody to fight for me because you do the battle inside the octagon they do all this stuff for you outside fellas. My daughter starting to wake up by daughter chicago. Okay time for me your go you. Good her william pigeon but done this year. You got one more. I got one more less i got. I'll do my daughter starting to wake up. Though in she gets bad boys limitations champion of the world gets up and she starts screaming. She gets mad. That pigeon would be at least. Your words of my daughter gets more. You wanna see abadan more. I went down there. That scare the shit out of okay. So when and ask you this. There's a lot of pound for pound. talk out there. We just talked about one and how much the game is. All george is trying to give us a at this point when you're talking about the greatest of all time nor pound for pound king do. They have to have competed in multiple weight classes. I do have battled in multiple weight classes. Oh multi-car i think folks. I think it helps. I think it helps. I think it helps me classes but you know what men would is are putting on dominant performance at. Somebody's done in their weight classes. You really can't question anything they do. So i don't i don't i don't believe that it's necessary but i do think it helps when you start talking about Where you stand amongst greats of all time you know because of the greatest fighters Have fought in multiple classes. Permit me one more. Okay fast will. I don't know if you saw the footage yesterday earns hagler poking that fight. There's these old rivals even muhammad ali. Joe frazier at some point. They get together and the kind of state now. They have a beer. We've seen that moment. I've asked this before things have gotten older. You're retired now. You get that call from john jones. let's meet up. Have a beer with dinner. Happens you show up. You need to do and just kind of hang out and reminisce idol. No i mean. That's not even something i've thought about. I think that the things that we have done set to each of are so. They're so nasty. It's been with so much bad blood that i don't know if a it can be just easily kind of washed away. I think that I don't know. I actually the only time that i think about. That is when you guys bring it up because i never think about whether or not be friends with jones is going to happen. Sugar ray leonard all the way to panama and finally made a piece of appeasement. Roberto sugary was more of the one that had mentally way on him and he good with thirty years after the fight. And i were at one on one on in a public setting If you bring back up or others she was just showed up to my house old. We now were talking and enjoy your day guys all right all right man.

Helwani Roadshow 1

"Everyone. Lori one. This is incredible. I don't know what to say. Thank you. Thank you so much for coming. I am blown away by all of this truly. I really can't, thank you. All enough, welcome to the first ever I ever. I wanna wrote show, I've been talking about doing this for at least five six years at my previous employer. I tried to get into this, and it just kind of moved a little slow and here, back in February, Elizabeth Daniel, Glenn and the rest of the team at ESPN came to me and said that they wanted to do. Are you kidding? I've been wanting to do this for years. And then they finally actually did it, and did they ever do it look at this guys. This. This is absurd. I am. I'm speechless. I it's hard for me to even put this into words. I am. So I'm so humbled that you guys would actually take some time. I know you could do a lot of things tonight that you would actually pay to come here, this really means the world to me, and it's crazy that it's actually happening this week for multiple reasons I started this show, which of course originally, they want to know what the original name of the show was original middle name for three episodes. Anyone? I don't expect you to know this. It was called fight house radio for three episodes. And then we found out that there was a gym in New York City called, White House so we had to change it. And so, I decided to call it the MA our and at the time it was just so when I saw this how it started I was working for AOL dot com. I was there in New York City walking in the office and I saw it a little room that had the setup with, like a little radio board and some microphones and like a security camera. And I asked my boss, can I do show here I do podcast this in two thousand nine and I was a big Howard Stern fan and I said I'd love to do a show like that. And he said, yes. Sure. And they richly said to me, I kid you not they said, all right? You could do a show, but it has to be no longer than fifteen minutes, fifteen minutes, and I was like fifty minutes. That's like my intro fifteen minutes. I need a lot more time. So we ended up calling it the our Iran, obviously around nine years. And so the first episode of that was. Believe up top my head June. Nineteenth of two thousand nine so we're approaching the ten year anniversary of meat doing the show. Thank you. And I wanted to show to be the show of record. I wanted it to be the top show. I don't want I hated the word podcast. I wanted to be the show and mixed martial arts. So I worked my ass off to get all the best names. The biggest guest booked every single guest in the history of the show myself. And I'm damn proud of it. I don't. I love doing it and I keep doing it. And so here's the other crazy thing. A year ago this week. I started at ESPN how crazy is that here? We are doing this, so we're celebrating the tenure aniversary of the show, the one year anniversary of coming over here, and I know everyone was afraid to change. Everyone was worried about leaving. But I think it's worked out pretty damn good. I think we've had one of our better years. But here's the craziest part of it. All speaking of anniversaries, because I'm weird when it comes to, you know, years and dates yesterday was the three year anniversary that you guys saved my career. And you know what I'm talking about. You guys the people spoke up for me yesterday was the three anniversary of that. And I will never forget that. And that's why for as long as I am covering this court, I will work for you guys. That you are all here and that we could celebrate this together. I mean figure that that's unbelievable. If it wasn't for you guys. There is no this I'm done. I'm outta here. You guys actually had my back. And that's that's something that I will forever want to repay you and will forever work to repay because I haven't repaid. I'm sure there are some of you that tweeted and did all that stuff. And so I wanna thank you for saving my career and for being here and for always supporting me because the fans have been the best. And so when they came to me with this idea, I said, all right, what are we going to do? We gotta make the special. This can't just be like your regular old, Hawaii show. So I, I thought let's just do an interview, and then we'll do a Q a but then it got a really great response. And people wanted to be a part of it. And so back in two thousand and twelve when I was working for Fox Sports, I did one trivia show for them, a UFC tonight's special UFC tonight, trivia, dishing, and four fighters were involved. I think Rashad Evans dominant. Cruise Michael ping and Kenny flooring. And it was a lot of fun. And they really liked it, and they got great feedback unfortunate in live in LA, and we couldn't really do more, but I've always felt that a trivia show for you. Have see would be really successful. So once I got a lot of feedback, and people want to be a part of it. I said, you know what, let's bring back the trivia show. I think this could be fun who wants to see like an old interview, you know, you could see that every Monday on the show. Let's do something a little different. And so, I started to call a few of my friends and actually had to turn down some fighters, but the good news is this is not a one off. We're going to do more of these, and this is just the first one, and I'm so happy and excited to do it here. It's going to be amazing. I hope you already and the best part about it is you're going to be involved in this. You don't know this yet, but the audience is actually going to be involved in all of this. I hope you're paying attention to everything. It's going to be tricky great. I love you. Thank you. You guys. Thank you so much. I can't believe is happening. The real. All right. I know for me. You wanna meet the fighters. Let's go. All right. So we've got five of the best fighters in the world you know, we listen I I love everyone at east. I love all the shows. I'm a big fan, but the other shows they just come and they have I bring you the best freaking fighters in the world. It's not about me, because my show has never been about me. It's always been about the fighters. Right. It's all interviews. It's me just sitting there and giving you like ranson and all that. No, it's been about them and their stories. And so. And here's the best part. These guys are really nervous. These are guys who actually fight for living in a cage, and they're super nervous. They're asking the questions. What are we gonna ask me about wonder boys? Trying to get me to change the whole thing. The Harry Potter trivia, guys like super nervous about all this crazy. They fight in a cage for a living. So this is going to be great. I'm super excited about it. All. All right. So without further ado, let's call them up. First off. Let's say Hello to the pride of Greenville, South Carolina. One of the very best welterweight in the world. The one and only. Wonderboy. Even. There is no right over there at the end right over there. Stephen Thompson, the man right over here.

She doesn't want to fight this, man, Justin gates said, no to this fan, but top lightweights in the world are running away from this man. You know, the span is it's Paul freaking Felder. In the house, and look at that beard, by the way. Look at builders beard beard. Tire. Next up. I got three words for you. The underground. Allege a former Bella Tor champion of former UFC champion and a suit to be one chat chat the pride of. Eddie Alvarez in the house. My man Eddie Alvarez the one and only look at this lineup. So richly they said to me, let's just do four and I said, no, we can't do four we gotta do five. We gotta have the fab five men will go down in history, when they are inducted into the hall of fame on their plaque. It will say that they took part in the first ever, how Lonnie road show. And so we have one more. He has taken the UFC by storm ever since the historic trade late last year he submitted. And yes, I said he submitted ruthless Robbie Lawler. He submitted him. I saw you saw. I thought and you side. And on July seven he's strolling it to Las Vegas to take down game bread fighter. He is the mandate co funky. He is the one and only Ben aspirin. Ben aspirin in the house.

What you got. Scale one to ten how nervous are you do? I'm actually kinda nervous. I had no idea what to expect. What kind of trivia, I'm the war like you said, if it's not, Harry Potter trivia, I'm the worst, but you gotta have a loser. You know what I'm saying? I'm here to hang out and have a good time. Here you are sitting next to meal, choose shoes. Very large, fellow and backstage, was telling me that he's gonna whip all your asses is that accurate bullshit. Terrible to say what you're sort of level of knowledge you have trivia dumb is showing comes watch. That's. That's here. Exactly. Someone has to lose scapegoat. Yes. How are you doing? August. Seventeenth coming up, feeling my Bobak. That's called Calder is it true. All the lights in the UFC are running from you is that true. I don't think that's true. Come on mall. Come on. Live it up a little bit. Yeah. Well, you know, I put it out there that anybody above me is, you know, who I want next, obviously, I to just in our Edson and Justin was the winner of that fight. I said that before that fight ever happened. I said that, if that happened, I will call out the winner and when I'm face to face, or that guy. I'm gonna say that to him. So I don't know it got a little blown out of proportion. I wanna fight the guy. I don't think it's that big of a deal where where no. He did. Well, yes, far as I know they've said, heard it, he said, no, he said, no, he said. No. So you have something or not yet not yet. No night. We'll get you something. But I'm talking about. Gets done.

There you have it been asked him. We know you got your busy man to lie six seven not the seventy six and I I've ever had tomorrow. Wrestled together. That's right. That's how the Olympia has got to stick together. Right. I think so. That's fair. That's right. So you think he's gonna win? Yes. Tough fight. But I we were debating antics backstage, you don't like the antics. I know they're giving it his all. Always like this. No. And he said it was bullshit. You know, he's trying he's trying is for him.

Daniel, we'll do the meeting greed in the back. So we've asked you for that. Thank you, Elizabeth. There's Elizabeth one of the unsung heroes of our team puts it all together. We got a lot of unsung heroes here the team in the house. The ESPN MA squad taking over. It's not just end up here. It's the whole squad doing it amazingly. All right. So if you have a question, what are we gonna do near creek? We're gonna go, they're going to go there. All right. If you have a question, come to your all, if you wanna ask something if you don't wanna ask anything, but you just get on with us and go to the back. But if you do I'm here for you for the next fifty minutes. Anything goes, all right? We'll develop a little bit of a Q here and say, Hello. And again, thank you to everyone. I hope you're having fun. I love you. All right, man. What do you got my name Steven Jensen? I'm from Nashville. Tennessee. See what happened to pre back as anyone have any idea that is a great question, pre prebaked man. So if you don't know way back in the day, Creebec was the guy who did he did, what was it imitations on the show? He had an amazing lead Ishmail. Why is that guy keeps saying area like that? Like what do you want what you want? I'm right here. My man. I'm right here. All right. Volleyed yet, all those things. He was he was amazing. He was incredible. I don't know what happened to him. I honestly don't know. I get that question all the time. People ask me all the time. I have no idea where you went he lived in Brooklyn. He moved to San Diego and I've not heard from him since. And I'm sad about that. You're creek get on that, right? Pre bag. I'm on it. All right. Next up say from Brooklyn, no question, bust request stop bringing alley near show, bro. Say it again.

Breathe. Might go bisbee Michael thing, all right? There you go. Thank you, my friend. Grayson from Tennessee. Hello, jason. So big question for you. So obviously you've last name redacted. We could say that whatever you wanna say fighting right? They're going to keep going. I know a lot of people think like oh, they're Dell stuff. No, they've got a great team. They're I'm very happy for everyone there. And I think the more outlets more people covering the sport the better for the sport. So I do not wish. I know all you people think that I'm trying to. I'm not trying to kill my friends. Yeah. Yeah, that's silly. But so what do you think about the fact that so many good people have left the outlet that you came from and are continuing to leave what happens for the idea of independent journalism separate from the UFC obviously, you are ESPN, and you're, you're still being very honest about the things that you say that you want to put out there, what happens for independent journalism now that so many of the big players have left that. Field and went on to work for, yes, PM. What happens journal? Honestly, there's only like three full-time writers that PIN a lot of them went to the athlete. Nick. Right. Right. It's still fighting may junkie. There's sure dog there's Yahoo. So I don't get this idea that there's no independent journalism and were certainly independent. That's why you know, you see our, our social media handles ESPN MMA, our Instagram or Twitter, things like that. We're covering the sport of mixed martial arts. And I think we're doing pretty damn good job of it. So I don't feel like any conflicts or anything like that. I understand the concern. But don't worry about me. My man, I keep at one hundred as the kids like to say. What's on your mind? That's right. I am gain from Chicago. Again. What's up, Danny? So what do you now you're Chicago?

Montreal hasn't had invented four years. Whereas our love, we had great events are.

It was a split decision but he won a fight came into the back room. He started crying because that was see. It's just <hes> <hes> the other day the other day <hes> atlantic city that one kid in the back room was crying. He came. I'm like no the fuck off man. I'm like what are you talking.

The way big cubs held. You tell you know i don't wanna brag bullets. I don't know man. I wanna see what's up with that that that's i want to see about strategy and is he going to try to utilize those those calf kicks but now because he's gonna be i listen that was a deadly kicked nuts but he's also so what are the best kickers in the game edson barboza yeah and just about that james victim like i understand coach. Tell him that you gotta use your jab but when you jab this almost it's the best time to utilize those catholics because you're you're heavy on that front foot and you only thought one attack at a at a time and it makes it super easy for you to step up and other your opponent to this time it and start crashing those kicks even like my full page joe mandak.

No yes glowed loaded lot just in general listen i see in your last fight. I watched this morning. Versus montana de larosa. I was only two months ago. I mean which was wild and it was quite the scrap and you rightfully so got the decision. What did you say afterwards that it was your worst. I fight to watch the fight and i don't think so anymore but okay. It's all in my head. I mean there was a lot going on and i just felt like maybe i didn't <unk> underperformed but now looking back and seeing it. I i especially 'cause you're the deal with adversity you in some tight spots and you put a stamp on it. You'll you ended strong and i think that's what really made the difference and and going into that last round i was like has a really wasn't sure if i have the other two rounds you know i figured maybe close south like at this is to go in all or nothing. He known in lynn good thing you have you go ahead. I'm sorry i just said that's what i did. Yeah well good thing. You have a good corner man in tim. Tim creator peter type kill his last name. I know tim awhile. I loved him yeah yeah how. How long have you been with <hes> with tim. I'm trading him started train with him. September of last year now you're striking is off the hook. You feel it on the floor. You got out of some some rough positions. How much you attack in the ground right well went on when i'm on the ground. I i do tack a lot from those positions but i mostly alike. I like to be able to control my opponent in crowd of counsel. I don't always search force missions when i'm almost around. I like to do damage but i it's not that my grand game not good. It is really good. I just you know i'm a striker at heart. You know i don't wanna be damage. Wait did you. Did you know that this was going to be your path because you're doing so well. I mean all three fights in the u._f._c. You want all three you looking great. When did you say all right. This ain't a hobby. This is what i'm gonna do. They probably after one after my my box will match and twenty ten was actually had not been trained in that long.

I think i match up with him very very well number two and number two band wait this this guy you this guy so what's the problem. I don't see no problem with it. I don't see anybody else who got a better win streak. Who's calling all right. We got jimmy. Jimmy good on skype on the show. You hear this. Do they. Okay hi. I i love it. It looks really good dude. Does it look good jimmy. It looks good yes you do. I look take the separation. Everything looks great and jimmy looks good too jimmy dino jimmy d just roll out of bed al hey you right now. I'm actually i wanted to say hello to al jokes. I'm the one guy he didn't bash on instagram and i just went through the whole thing and <hes> <hes> you know i'll do feels. He has enough friends jimmy nolan. He wants to make some enemies in this business and get paid. I think al i've been saying this for a while. I think you deserve your your title shot and you're right to be caught everybody out. I think you deserve it. I don't see anybody else. Call anybody else. Everyone wants to sit there and twitter that thumbs and who how whoever they put in front of me. Shut the fuck up. No one gives a fuck about that. No one gives a fuck about that. We wanna stop. I came into the sport to make money change my life then ride off into the sunset with my kids kids and my family and maybe like a speedboat and jessica you know your kids are thinking about the future. I want my cellphone these guys. I want to get paid more money but crickets crickets if a tree falls in the woods and no one hears it. What the fuck did it really fall it. It really fall so data say about about dimitrius you know one of the greatest fighters in history yeah but people respected him but he didn't and again not you have to talk to people oh to to want to see you fight but there's a lot of great fighters so if there's a little something real between the guys people are more interested in watching the fight so i think it's smart. Give them something to gravitate <music> i'm willing to i'm willing to put myself out there. I win win great. You know it works. If i don't then you know what we go back to the lab we reinvent ourselves and we pick ourselves does ourselves often we go again. You know that's what life's all about. These guys are so afraid to take a risk and say something because they're scared of public scrutiny who gives a shit easily people behind a keyboard. You probably never see and they don't pay your well. They kinda pay your bills but they're not gonna pay your bills if they don't give a fuck about you know what i'm saying so love me or hate me at the annotated editing. No one can say anything about me. I'm being me if you guys were in the gym where we had to fight. Do we break balls and that's what we do long island man we break balls we have we have a good time and i'll i'll have a beer with you later. I'm i'm i'm okay with that. Were you getting. Were you getting a little frustrated because it seems like this is kind of a new approach where you're getting frustrated with waiting and saying enough is enough. You know definitely frustrated but even even now this. I don't think is necessarily a new approach. I have done this in the past. I've had some success with it and i have stumbled one time with bryan caraway fight and i kind of fell back a little bit you know weights. I could get a little bit more steam and momentum going again and now him back at it again. Man learn so much from that fight soaked so you learn so much from that fate and you've taken out came back from being down to fights taking now undefeated fighters guys the say the parking with a fucking heike pike the pike <hes> and the other one that what the fuck corey stayman stayman korea codey codey codey. I'd say yes man and that really shows a lot. You're right now or peaking not just physically but mentally because of not just the your success in their the hard times in there. You know what i mean so i'm so i mean jimmy. He's right number the number two so what the what what's the problem. Let me ask you. Ooh algebra is because pseudo is talking about. Maybe <hes> fighting it in other ways. I is that what you're a little frustrated with like. He's calling out these other people. Will you know he's being silly calling valentina shevchenko which nobody in my app you deserve a shot so i guess that's getting a little bit irritating. Yeah definitely does he's. The inter gender gender. Champion willie's wants to be fight for the title. I don't know i don't know what that's just about. I do get what he's trying to do is trying to stir the pot. He's getting people to talk and it's working. I don't know if it's necessarily on translate into dollars but if it does great i would love to be the guy who shared octagon with him next and if not you know we'll figure out the next best step so that we can get ourselves there and that's that's the best way i can. I can look at it but i can't see who else he should fight wheels. Gives them the toughest match up. I'm long rangy. I can a strike with him. He's not gonna out russell me. He's definitely not and if if he was going to take me down and do what inside trip in a sitting on my guard i wanna slice fucker out with elbows off my back. It's it's dangerous. Very dangerous guard extremely hard to settle in on the enact guard. It's it's it's very it's people people can be almost like my student who fought over the weekend. James gonzales young's ago. He fought a tough georgian kid who had good <hes> sambo sambo judo strong and strong almost like a mihrab and my my little my by my black belt. James is almost like a little muppet. He doesn't really hit this kid was thrown around but every time he'd throw him down he barely survive in his guard and that's what you said but the difference is algiers got better had a wrestling so they usually get him down there but anytime you see anybody in the top araujo they never doing damage i don't i don't remember you ever taken a punch in the face on the guard ever. I don't know maybe like one sneak down but when i took it was different when i took them down. Fuck you through your chat. I knew i jog my mace windu but you can't kill by the emperor in the fucking thing but yeah but you all my jet i what when you write number two. It's got to be difficult to because then what do you do. Do you fight the next logical step for us of course career not gonna fight for the ball games for unified for but then if so who knows looking at the way that you have seen come you and go hey how about and you saw that derailed frankie and not that you wouldn't win your next fight but you've earned your shot at the title and there's no reason once you've earned the shot to have to do busy work or fight fights that are lateral moves or even five that guys lower than you and then all of a sudden if they have a good night all of a sudden they jump you in the line so i definitely think that number two is tough place to be the number five or six when pick another fight yeah one hundred percent and we've seen a guy who's been a number one contender before even that guy ruffea sunset was number one for a while and he could not get a title fight for the life of him didn't didn't matter who who he beat and they even gave him a rematch against mariah's and we saw how that turned out so i've seen this story before i've learned from other people's mistakes and you're right number two. It was definitely hard but i did hear there is a top level tough guy who's had multiple title shots former champion coming down one thirty five and i'm. I'm just trying to let the world know that one thirty five is just not going to be the answer. It's just not going to be the answer not happy about that. One i like talking talking about jimmy yeah of course and i saw the tweet and i honestly wanted to both the instagram and i know that you your life frankie but hey i need to his class right he. He's coming down to mind so if i want to say because now we are now potential <hes> competitor's potential opponents. I think it's fair game. I would never talk about his family or anything guys a great dude <hes> i would love to have trained with him coming up the ranks but identity unfortunately elite and here we are so that's the next fight. They wanna make whether it's him leon whoever it is. I'm i'm ready as long as it has. It has to be a fight. That's going to put a somewhere somewhere or give us a shot that we work so damn hard for you know. I felt down a letter. I work my ass off to get back here. I don't think anybody else's putting the time. I really don't thank you both so good with fundamental. I don't know jimmy. No other thing is this algiers. Joe is like family to me so i'm i'm definitely in the fox hole with him and the biggest thing is like when he first said to me. I was kind of bummed out you know 'cause i like you know right or wrong. Grab one hundred percent. He's kind of like what you just saw brother. Maybe a brother kakoty for that fight. I go matt. I i cannot be joe. I can't i you know and this it'd be different if algebra ee that's the biggest thing and that's what longo said to me. It was like well you know it was already there. He fought his way up to you know to to number two and it's like you know number two in the world so it's like you know if frankie was not his way way class. It's what you know then. You know. It is what it is. You know i ever doing is this. Though my only thing is and i'll get and listen when i'm in i'm in so i'm not being that guy goes he half n._f._l. No i'll going to warm in the foxhole woodham but you gotta understand jimmy. It's and it's when you're getting ready for these things. I'm thinking about how to take a guy out. I'm thinking about how to hurt a guy when i i hear that and i know it's a game and it's not so easy to do anyway to a guy who the guy is going to be trying to do the same him i know but the initial thing is i don't wanna try to hurt my friend. You know what i mean. I don't want my my little little brothers last nephew. I'm a little bit older so i have to say nephew thirty forty five thirty thirty now know what's weird. I'm like fifteen years older than new in fifteen years old to me. It's like the circle of life anyway jimmy that that's neither here nor there. I miss jimmy admission when i don't see i mean but i feel like what i see my kids on facetime happy. There's no way even on cool. No i like this better. I like seeing you by the way i'm <music>. I'm in switzerland right now in mountain. I'm in. I'm in a beautiful place. Who's currently switz- switzerland our lady in fact yeah. There's there's mountains behind me so today. I'm taking a two hour drive in the swiss mountains and had to pull over and vomit by eight eight eggs and bacon and coffee all too fast so i had to pull over and throw up twice. Could you probably on on a one lane winding road behind fucking cows. What are you eh comedy in switzerland. No no no. I'm not working off from radio. She was going to go to western canada but i'm visiting somebody. I haven't haven't seen in years who moved out here in two thousand ten and i'm like fucking. I'm gonna do it once in my life. Could you bring me back some of the delicious chocolate. Oh yeah aren't they don't for their chocolate. You told me are but i haven't had any such a good workout today on the side of the road chocolate. You swim e. l. but i won't i won't make it through costumes fucking wanna ball. We've got a friend of you all right that. I had irish this question a friendship that bring me back a fucking fucking walkabout. I'm gonna bring you back some. I'll bring you back something and say something right now that i'm a little offended i then he says come on whatever you want. Joe talk to you right now and i and jimmy's listen you know i've been on his his other show at sirius the fucking him samra the jimmy jimbo zero joe. I've been on once in like five years that little fucking bagel got boss sky this on every other week now hanging out with strippers and that's what i wanted. You haven't been fairly lebron but he's a regular. I'll get a seat for that little motherfucker. I was your friend. I and you have this little fucking famous for throwing tantrums. You you know sam loves you too. The reason i don't ask you as i did embarrassed to ask my friends like i figure it's an inconvenience for you because you're all alone. I'll put it this way. The weekly comeback lack any day would love to have you in but i always feel like i'm going to my friend jan. That will be an inconvenience for him because he's rolling in the morning. I feel bad like jimmy. Jimmy jimmy jimmy jimmy. I'm sorry that was my fault. You get your friends but i was like. I see that guy. He's first of all i would. You know little stocky guy. I'm your little stocky for. Not him are only little stock you firm. I'm not the biggest loss. I like him. So let's see we're not. We don't hang out with all text. We do jimmy all right. Well listen so you're coming back next week. I'm not going to abu dhabi man. I try not the fucking to their strangling ghomi now own it always bugging <hes> but yeah man so this week to talk to you wednesday to i'm back and then you're gone so you can call from abu dhabi depending on the time difference. If you have time one hundred percent. We're gonna do the predictions on wednesday show. I know you're gonna. I'm gonna work abib. Yes i knockout insane the for six months have you have you ever witnessed. Peeves comoro can be phenomenal. It's not it's not a disrespected. It's not an issue of question about the comoro. Have you ever seen it yeah. I've seen it thank goodness for whatever ref was there what michael johnson and saved his arm that dan would he would screw that thing off. You understand jimmy. I respect the comoro and so should you. I'm gonna get a little uptight. Jimmy what i'll see you. I'm not picking for you and submit them on picking able to get to them. In the first couple of rounds and again it could be a great fighter and he's a good fighter but i think poured as a better standard fighter. I think poor pori will find a way to hurt him. In that first round i mean connor went for rounds of them and connor. I don't think he's able to defend himself on the ground as poor as it took four around and connor in the third or fourth so i think it will be able to get to and plus again. Sometimes i play the odds twenty seven all i think he is now a twenty eight now to resolve win forever fighting guys on that level. Somebody eventually beat you. It's just the odds of it about how good your fate or lost eventually. Everybody loses eventually. What what about what about ben aspirin. Oh wait a minute number one. You got a loss recently. Eventually somebody somebody lands that right shot. I think landed hard go with like mayweather. Views nationally must've forgot that knee anomaly listen i. I only say that because he talks so much shit i just wanted. I just watched a thing on game bread. Hoy mas i'd just watch the thing on on youtube. It was like <hes> life of a fighter or something and it kind of a two piece thing and it led up to his fight with ben aspirin. It was awesome because i i you know you click on different things. So sometimes you click on it. You know i do that when i'm on the toilet. I'm just sitting there and go. Oh through stuff and kinda like what i'm doing right now. I'm giving you a visual except the seltzer. This is this and the soundboard here is my head and i'm on the throne grown so the visual but anyway i'm just going through stuff and i click on this and sometimes i'll click on something. Just get rid of it. I watched that. I watched the whole fucking. Two part series stomach issues anyway. That's why i was there but there anyway i was there anyway. Timmy had any way to go but it was fun and it ended with the ben aspirin needed but but all all the shit talking of bed asking going well. Oh you know georgie is a volume striker. He doesn't really knock anybody. He's going over all the math that leads up to what is his game plan. You ask him about aspirin. Grin on his game plays the same to everybody else. Champion keep away. No one wants to be niro so so so like you know how. It ends so fucking so you like this. This is so great. This is so fucking great so watch that you if you bought in the fucking alps yeah i will i will be picking for you and i compete myself wednesday. I'll do my pick now. Pour a second round kale. I said to him and i've been saying it. I just have a weird feeling. He's going to get to khabib early. <hes> <hes> and again no disrespect to be who is one of the greatest to ever live. Well could be fourth-round comoro so what i'm selling may submission a little bit. He's fucking dangerous. That could be yeah well. Let's just pick you think funk master <hes>. I feel bad when i pick because i see guys all the time feel. Okay that's fine. That's fine fine fine and co host. What's one possibility that could happen. Possibly could have all these guys to al jovan. I got how can you have kids one day and going to look back and all this to consider algebra for maybe now he's on the fence. You lost the job and somebody calling fucking fucking corey san hagen so you better get your shit together and get off the fence well. I think one possible scenario is that left hand of dust dustin. Portray stunning could be like michael johnson did because he is fast and i do think he does. He hits very hard at that weight compared to forty five so i can see in catching them and i think he's competent enough on the ground not like michael johnson who owns guys on ripped off. There's a complete difference and skill said there. I think he's very competent on the the top position. I think he's he's tough to get back up. We might even see him. Take a deep down. We saw our almost take him down and he let it go for the strikes and could be was shocked. He was shocked. <unk> out grab that you saw is is kind of light up so i wouldn't be surprised if he went there to try to push the issue. Maybe put on his back and we see something. Completely different will let me remind you gentlemen that could could be used to russell bears in eight years old out there. This is true he did bears. Don't have a left leg and you're right. Michael johnson did get to them. I think it was in that first round around and i think that's when he might be slightly vulnerable before he begins to exhaust you like keeping you on the ground and pound and you buy around three guys. He'd probably too tired to stand up there and do too much where those first couple of rounds when guys rush he can be slightly vulnerable and i think i know if i know that kanu it he did shit people thought i love when people point out the michael johnson fight because i was there to watching it in the back and i go. He figured this <music> out his figured it out. He's did a body. He's going upstairs. Mix it up. He's moving. He's moved to the corner. I was getting all up and he notified. Auto fight ended fucking new shoulder okay so let's just ended at that. I don't think jimmy jimmy. I don't think he'd ever hang up on me ever never but we're going to test this because paul felder hold on everybody. Paul failures fighting somebody next week. Do you know who's fighting and was he fighting. Three two more bob was on bob bos and he's are you fucking serious. That's you bet well listen. I know my jimmy bird and we read. We read through.

I'm putting i'm putting this on the record now. I want to go back to the videotape tape. I'm stated here. Don't don't give them a heads up. I guarantee you. He's wearing a blue shirt to go with. His fucking is as i go along with your winky dink. You blew reebok shirt guarantee you. You know what i mean foul again. I gotta make sure i could see this. You watch this auto. We'll make a thing of it guarantee you. He's wearing a blue shirt. Ah guaranteed i even he's not wearing a blue shirt. I got nothing to say the bottom telling you right now. L. joan we're going to be having one is paul felder or calling in gentlemen in five minutes all right. Let's talk about some more news young funk masta yeah amok. Oh what do you think about the whole 'cause mcgregor apologizes on e._s._p._n. For the ball punch i finally yeah find got to wash special. Today's ago aryan awani secretly hates brecqhou he might cause. This is the thing brenna komodos komodos likable dude. He's a likable dude. He's good at his craft. The fight is like them. The brass likes him and doesn't come across like a condescending like indu. She she like ariel does r._e._o. Could be cool but he could also be a little fucking bag. You know what i mean and a little jacket. Older folks would shift so i mean and so he's he's looking at this young brett akimoto like i look everybody likes this. Dude the fuck. This is the new me sarria should be a little nicer. Maybe everybody nope. That's his thing dushi. I like to but now we're a little whatever i felt that way about him and luke thomas to be honest. Bashing luke is why. I like this positively yeah now they say after talking with them and and finally like motion brent akimoto l. a. komodo akimoto is he's coming. He's out everything mcgregor. You know the apologized for the apologized for punch in the old man. That straight left ticket. He said that may deserve to enjoy his time in the pub without having an end in the way it did. He said i tried. I tried to make amends and i made men's back then but it doesn't matter i was in the wrong. That's not the reason i got into martial arts or studying combat sports the reason i got into it was to defend against that type of scenario so listen. The thing is is connor is surrounded by some good people like i you went over there and when you remember you trained over nyland yeah. How did they treat you. Those are great time john avenue the man john calvin or is a martial artist and he's a he's an from what i see is just a really good guy and so it's like. I don't think he'd be associated aid would connor if it wasn't like. I think that he is connor at his core was a bad dude and i'm honest about connor on. I mean whatever i i am. You know what everything would him. It could be definitely more on you could be with that shit. I felt and there's a lot of things i don't. I don't agree with the dude but as coming from a guy with a temper like sometimes in the past like you know. I don't know you don't want to give somebody pass on punching an old man. Sometimes i mean it. Did you know at least it seems like is he upset that that daddy got caught or is he upset that he did. It like you know what i mean yeah he would if he's saying all the right things i guess only time will tell and actions and his actions actions will tell in the future and not to back him up by any means because i saw did an interview and he was talking about that they asked him about that and people he was kind and like you never know what the man said and i'm like this is true. I don't think any shape or form provoked them. I think you pretty much captured well. He was disciplined by not. Ah yeah not having respect you know. When you're that young that much power it could get a little delusional man. It'd be like how dare you disrespect expect me in today. You know we're all human beings man you shouldn't be. I said that back in the day when he was at an m._a. Event is bella tourism in any moisture graph slapped him slapped him who the fuck because because the guy was trying to get the cage where you shouldn't have been on and he's i. I mean that's where i'm like. Wait a minute. You can't just be put hands on people like that yeah so it's like so maybe the so you know. I don't know i mean obviously didn't learn from that these young league. It's his shit together because people told me joe rogan was talking about he's got one hundred million in the bank and dana talks about how smart he is. You know i don't give a fuck about that if he's not not a good person who gives a fuck. I don't know like do i'll tell you right now one hundred million the bank. I'm pretty much doing everything. I'm doing right now. Like is that really. It's about the guys throwing dollars at fucking things would fighters in it and rosen rose. <hes> thug rose was in the first seed could fucking face destroyed. He's mushin officials. He smack in vogue in the an omega punish them and like oh. Will you know he's savino. He made a lot of money for itself and really what does that mean. The fuck does add meets. What about the people that that excuse me. He's a small. What the fuck does that me. What have to do with that being a decent human being yeah. I don't give a fuck if he's a brilliant like i really don't. I don't what what the fuck does that mean what when people say well. He's brilliant so that means. Everybody should be doing this kinda shit to be i mean i don't know that's where i have a problem with all that shit yeah. We're guys are saying shit leg. Oh he's but he's you know he's yeah. He's made all that much wasn't that he's done that. I mean i'm not hating on it but it doesn't give you a certain right to disrespect guys that what they were so. This guy made a two hundred million and you can't smack him because he's what the fuck is going on here. The fuck is everything. I do materialistic bullshit. You know all this shit. Would you agree people dying left and right now. You're not taking any of these. Would you doesn't mean travel. You better be a better human being. You'll feel better about yourself. You think i i mean i don't know dude. If i'm telling you right now i had all the money in the world. I'm still teaching kids place on saturday. I'm still going down to watch you guys spot. I dunno. I what is a good meal. Ray longo has got the right idea. You don't give a fuck. He's living fucking dream. Yeah you know what i mean. Martial-arts fog i if that guy's been doing the the same thing for the last twenty years always wondered me. I hope this doesn't end it does suck you do see that and it kind of reminds me the whole thing like even like tyson like when he was young a young and upcoming he was even younger than connor and he had that type of money. You know just blowing just do most what he went through. Some wild shade created. It's all about that but the difference is. I think think here is that <hes> con has got some like some people around him. I felt bad for tyson at the time he's married truck and robin givens and this one and that you you know the people that were closest laws than yeah. It looks like he has a nice family houses and his kids was that thing on me. I don't like to like guys have <hes>. I tell you right now so start with john jones on instagram that was cute how his daughter was in there and the door with like saver yeah. That was the cutest thing i've i've watched it like five times yeah towards negativity in the world fuck man one hundred percent rate. I just don't think that any point any co. I saw commented on the pitcher too. He was like and on showtime's interview and saying like i know point is ever right for a man then to attack an elderly man and i one hundred percent agree about the guy saying could be but i do understand people can be saying some ridiculous. Sometimes people think they can say god knows whatever and everyone's different who grew up different but to attack a man because he didn't drink your drink is kind of not gone crazy thing is if another u._f._c. fighter much to lose my job here if another u._f._c. fighter smack them did that to an old man. That video came out. They got their jobs. They'll no no no no. You have seen unfiltered. Filtered is sponsored by the u._f._c. official sponsors u._c._s. official podcast. Do i still have a job next next week. If the saying that fucking it's unsettled. Did you fox you want me to fill this shit. We'll lose view is ryan in is wrong so i must say i am saying reason to be some type of draw man. You know why because i've been around around the world. I've been around it all song algebra. It is what's up paulo. I pol fell the colon and now it's not going to be a skype. Don't don't punch people meant no punch. Old people get smack only getting a smack would have in a little easier viral video of lougee. What is this paul fowler. What's up buddy you talking get him at center and also sterling's goes today our heads up man. I'm good man. How are you buddy. You know i'm a little hungry. I'm a little ready to get to freaking abu dhabi and make sweet and do this thing. Have you ever been into the middle east before. I've even abu dhabi i have not know. How allen is the flight for you buddy. I'm going to be there but i'm going to so it's a twelve and a half hour flight from new york look. How is it for you. How long it's <hes> i think thirteen and a half because i got a direct from chicago not as bad as it could be so no no connections shins just straight from chicago to abu dhabi now. How do you feel about first of all fighting over there. I mean that's any different experience yeah yeah. I think that's exactly what is going to be but i'm excited just because they want it so bad over there. You know what i mean. These guys are begging u._f._c. to come over and put on a show so the fact that i get to fight over there in front of those fans and just just get to see this shitty on my. I'm very curious. The issue with this place looks like it's supposed to look real futuristic kind of insane so <hes>. I'm sure you've been there before right. Show show age. I've been there in two thousand one abu dhabi so i mean that was right here man. I i had a good run over there at abu dhabi and i'll tell you paul was a different different time. I told the algebra before like we were like. I don't know how apple dhabi is now. I think it's in the states now whatever but back then it felt like hans tournament mike bruce lia something enter the dragon all this sheikh they up and they want couches and they're playing the the the the music drums and holy crap man. It was really he's such an experience so i'm excited for going back to man not to mention the the phenomenal card. That's your part of now your first fight paul we. We were just watching a very difficult thing to watch i hope i don't know if you've watched it again because you don't want to tell you right now. I didn't wanna watch it if they're a couple times. How bad was that. Was it as bad as what we is. It looked like that groin shot <hes> that illegal shot that hasn't barbosa spitting back each you know dick. How was that yeah man. It was it was it was horrible. You know what i mean. It was one of those <hes> tough shots where i am. I didn't think i was going to be able to continue it. It was like a bolt of lightning out of nowhere and you know how you try to shake things out. You move around but there's no. There's really no shake in spinning hook kick trona from a guy like you know he kicks his shift to begin with and then he kicked in the nuts and it's just it was terrible. Well let me tell you kick pretty hard yourself body. I just watched this morning your last fight with james vick and all i kept hearing you know i like to listen to the corner work to you know and loyd irvin urban was telling his coach james vick was like man. My leg is his leg was you those calf kicks. You were doing was so money and it was so effective and such a tall guy like james vick so smart now and so effective fighting a fighter who's known for his kick like aw bosa now all are we a big game plan. Guy are we to say listen. It worked on james vick or as he listened f. that would ball bozo because he's such a stud kicker well. I think kickings always going to be a part of my game whether it's limited amounts or whole lot like it was against james vika and even in that james vick fight going into you know we were looking for those over hands and the left hooks he kept he's tall so much taller than me. He kept getting away from me. I was trying to do pretty much with dan. Hooker ended up doing them but dan huggers taller than me so he was able to get in with the hands a lot easier than i was so i had to kind of improvise obviously leg kicks. We're gonna be a huge part of that. Last fight. <hes> in the casket wasn't wasn't always necessarily the game plan. We want to attack his ties to but the way it played <music> out. I hit him there. A few times i saw it hurt him and and we went with it and for its and i did a lot of time kick him in the last fight and <hes> you know things will be definitely be different in this. I don't want to give too much away. I'm gonna kick them a lot or not. Kick him but i'll say this. I'm not afraid to exchange <hes> kicks fix. This and you know i'm a bigger guy. I have heavy leg kicks filling my shins or harsh it so if i can check if you return if you that'll hopefully get him a little worried about throwing kicks and i seen that you know his fight with kevin lee. You know where you like. You have so many different tools but but again let's not get too much into game plan book joe basically asking paul felder as old as whole game plan is almost seeming. I feel like this is going to be a straight up. Kickboxing war and i can't wait to watch it to be honest and those catholics man you land two or three good ones and it changes the complexion of the fight which is so crazy how effective that technique really is. It's not man. We weren't doing this a couple of years ago. Now you see it every time you turn on the u._f._c. all over the place. It's like you just <hes>. It's just shows the evolution of this sport and how crazy it is that <hes> one person comes out and it's like nah you know i'm going to start kicking lower and we were always taught not to do that right. 'cause check kicks you hit. The xinyu hurt your own shit. Well not if you get to the cafe i which is a much smaller muscle. You take that out and that's what everybody's supporting themselves on. You can hurt your thyroid algae. You know what i'm saying. You get hurt. You're buying a fight before you can get through connect. Calf cramps man hallway rat is brutal. I'm so happy that didn't get into into the mix one that came into the mix retired. I didn't get i didn't get too many kicks. It is funny things. We've all with like that. You know coming from a guy that i got back fist now. It's every other fucking looking back today. I was literally if you look it up. I guarantee on the first one. That gets stopped by a baptist when i did it. I was only the third ever doing u._f._c. u._f._c. Well then. I'm definitely the first thirty one don't you don't have to bring up that. I beat him in a rematch not about me but i do got a question like for you guys. Do you guys like okay the group give a green light for you. Guys are trained in sparring like utilizing the calf cakes because <music>. I'm having a hard time with that. Where like some guys who have in mix. <hes> responses from guys like wanted to okayed and some guys not want okay. I'm not gonna lie for me. I don't okay with me. You have to take the knee or higher yeah listen. I i kind of feel you there and i'll throw it out there every now and then to some of my sparring sparring partners when <hes> you know i gotta let them know and just play around with them like belong muhammed when he if he starts piece of land some good hand combos. I'll give them a little. Give them a little cafe. It kind of just laughs at me i i. We're the same over here where you gotta watch their first of all you don't wanna ever take your sparring partners knee and it's the kind of kick just second elbow. It's like look we can't really trade these back and forth like we can a lot of other stuff and sparring so you gotta you gotta find other ways to drill or whether it's on the thai bag or you know your coach coach. Kinda put something on his shin to let you practice it but yeah. I don't try to beat up my sparring partners too bad with catholics. 'cause it's just debilitating. Humana can take them out of the rest of the session. I feel like early on in my career. I was accused of just kind of fighting with you know emotion ocean of you know <hes> an instincts and things like that and <hes> i think ever since i switched to start working with duke and the guys have rufus sport and some different coaches she's back in philly even before i come out here i feel like i've really started to implement more of a game plan. <hes> more strategy not that wanted to going gets tough and i got a bite down my mouthguard. I can still do that too but i feel like i go into these fights. A lot more prepared knowing how to expose people how to how to use my attributes to my advantage manages opposed to just going into me and like we're gonna throw down and see what happens. That got me a little bit of notoriety early in my career and that's what i needed to do. You know you need you need to get <hes> some separation from the pack especially in these divisions that are stacked like the lightweight division is and now i've got that number ten <hes> fighting a number seven guys so now now it's now it's really a matter of winning these fights and moving up the ladder for real. You know it's not a it's not about just putting on a show. I feel like my style is always going to lend itself to to being potentially fighting tonight or you know a performance bonus winner but now it's. I'm only fighting still because i want to try to get to the belt and <hes> not just to entertain or make money can be doing well. You guys are going to be talking about fighting how could be sitting back enjoying time in philly eating cheese steaks and drinking beers. Here's my friends and being on the road but i'm not i'm still cutting. All these damn wait you know flying out to milwaukee living <hes> in somebody else's apartment and grind them because i want to try to be the best so <hes> if i'm not going to be the best you know then we'll we'll. We'll go from there but right now. I'm fighting to get to the top. Endgame is always engaged in mine and it's got a feel good though it's got a feel good that you you're so gifted on the mike paul like <hes> you know i've seen can you work the fights you know behind the das- in an interview two guys and you got a gift that you think you're theater stuff and all the the work you did as an acting does that help with the commentary feel yeah yeah hundred percent. I mean you know. I spent a huge part of my life. You know being being in the moment learning how to do things on the fly when things go wrong in his show. You can't stop and be like wait. Hold on let me do that again. I gotta go back and that's how commentating is when you're calling fight live. You can't be like i didn't like how i said that. Hold on shit. Let me let me say that again. You can't rely. You're going <hes> so i've had on experience doing that and things go wrong. All the time. Remember i was in russia with dan hardy john good and and my my earpiece is completely out and we were in a sold out stadium in moscow al doing the standup so they're talking to me and i just see moving mouse.

George of knees always is the devious and dastardly goes, he's co host to my left. It's the fight analyst. Dan, Tom, producing as always Dan Jato sub guys. What's up happy the end of the week. Is it again as a part on there so much to talk about today. Like the end of today show is so much further than any other show. There is a lot to cover for sure. And in fact, it has nothing to do with this and shins and knees and elbows and take downs. It has to do with the nuttiness. That was the UC two Twenty-nine press conference out in New York City with Dana white Habib number made off Conor McGregor and select media. Well, MMA media, they some of them no fans fans showed up, and there was still a circus. Yeah. Was it? Was it fun for you? Was that entertainment or what was it described that you don't know what it was because when it was going on, I was kinda feeling embarrassed a little bit and then there are times where I was entertained, but there were a lot of creamy. Where were you. Where will you cringing. Connor was just a little like he's over the top, but he was a little too over the top, just out of control type and then to some of the questions, man, they're just so many different levels of media that we have. Now that was a little cringe-worthy. So there were moments like that. I will say this the going into the press conference, the fact that there were no people allowed definitely changed the feeling of it, but to me, that's like Connor coming into a fight injured because he plays a lot off of the crowd and to not have those crowds reactions. I was curious to see how he was going to react to that. And I thought he did well making that adjustment, which is something he, he doesn't fight. So I kinda gave him his props in that regards. I enjoyed it. I really thoroughly did. Yeah, I think I like drama though. You're one of those guys, right? I'm in the middle, and I think you kind of don't like it right in like drama. I don't like I'm just not like the, oh my goodness, like a obviously, we talked about a scoreboard and we'll talk about it more here as far as scoreboard for these type of things. I'm okay with giving a winner, but it's not like he wanted to be like, that makes sense. You know what I'm saying? Yeah, I get it and I appreciate it for what it is. I'm not at the naira. I'm not a hater, but it does it. You know, get me excited. No, I'm legitimately excited about this matchup. Did it get you more excited for someone to get their ass kicked or for someone to win the new that for? You know, although I will say I felt the anticipation like many actually had a doctor's appointment at two, which I was pulling Conor McGregor four because I'll house running a bit late for, but I was like a fan. I was to come in queuing up queuing it up on my phone. You know, having having lately my pocket, very rudely Lena playing in the waiting room, but no knows I felt the anti defamation. And again, for the match up, there's not a lot to go off of as far as recent fights for Connor and. Again with Connor, like you guys are saying it's such that goes with. It's such. It's such a part of his game that it makes you pay attention to it. You know, I, it is valid in the sense of it. You know, you look at his past fights and how opponents react to these things. In hindsight, of course guys, right? But they did play little there. There were a little hints right? There were a little hint to go back Alvarez, press conferences and you. You see him. It took them awhile Alvarez, I think played it. Well, I to be but toward the end. And and I'm sure George Owen because you have your own theory but toward the end. Right. It starts to shift. Yeah. I guess there's so many ways to look at it. For one. It was fun for me. I was entertaining to the purpose of it was to make people aware of the upcoming fight and hopefully get them to purchase. And I think for sure that was a success for the sea for Conor McGregor because even though he's not a champion, he gets a pay per view cut and for Habib number gonna made off who is the champion and we'll get people who cut. Yeah. So those three. I sure one, I think the you have c. one MMA junkie one. I, I loved it. I really did. The only thing is if you ask fifty minutes forty, how Hong was the forty fifth, forty, five long. It was that is a lot to ask for for their not to be cringe worthy moments or for their not to be. Subsidiaries and I think that goes for everything. Even the best movie or the best sporting event. There's just times we like, okay, you know that you, you might watch a great football game, but someone will, you know, in the second quarter, nobody nobody scored. Oh, yeah. Okay. Well defense. But anyway. I. It was amazing. It was amazing to me how Connor just could keep up so much energy and keep going. He plugged, his whiskey was hilarious. He got Dana white to toast with him. He ruffled Habib's feathers. He insulted abuse manager, hubby abuse father have Eve's country a real estate agent in Long Island, New York. Even he was on the receiving end the UFC he thought they were bananas for not having fans there, and yet somehow he'll still continue to become more popular. Now that popularity. Also those follows. Some of those are also like, okay, you're character. But I do want you to get your ass. Kicked on onto a fourth, but you think Conor cares. Hell, no, he just wants to. He just wants to keep stack and paper. Yeah, so can ask questions it was one event and then that's it, and we'll talk about it today and then I think it die die off. It's it's like it was a real fight. Think it'll die off and then come fight. We, you know, here we go again. Sure. Where where were balls dropped. Get out. You know what I mean? What could have been better because there's one thing that I thought that I thought other than that. Oh, did you see them? Theory was right when they asked about it, he said, hey, look, man, this guy's on probation. Yeah, we're on denies here with the state of New York, but Athletic Commission didn't want to take a chance and he may have made the right call. He's sure he's, he made the right call. He said, so I'm going to say, I don't know what time square was like. Maybe there was fights out there between Irish and Russians or whatever, but I feel like come on, you know. Man, I've been to Brazil. I've been to Argentina. I've been overseas. I've seen soccer games where they play show up planning to fight. Yeah, and yet they're still able to contain the, I'm sure that could have contained Radio City Music hall, but it kind of adds to it because you all are lucky. You have an expert like me that tells you these things, but for the most part, there's a lot of people are like Dana said, so you know, and. But you know, I think they could have contained it and I think the fans could have got something out of it. But I think more than anything to do with the courts and the commission PO PO. Part of me also thinks that, you know, again, really easy to come at, come out Dana. He's the figurehead for these things and and some some has the way maybe handles himself makes them kind of that target. But in his defense, you know, these decisions are aren't. I had imagined guys aren't just made by him, right? I mean, it was up to him if anything, Dana white pies more on the wild side, you know, other than the conservative side of his sample size shows for anything, but you gotta think that this is kind of the new age, the corporation, they're, they're the Reebok, the u. Sada that image or image and there is kind of a precedence for in this new age to and you think about recent shows with the way they're handling security and they're all the new security outfit that they've kind of instituted where they actually pulled fights because of crowds member that was that. What was his heavyweight in the Europe crowds. Yeah, and actually pulled in remove that fight. Now, granted, they're not gonna pull the Kabaeva Connor fight for, but maybe what they will do is not allow the crowd and because they don't want to disturb this fight. So in even though I don't agree with it and I agree with you guys and the points that are strong on why the crowd should have been there, but in their defense, I think there is a precedence that we should maybe not be so surprised at these kind of decisions going forward. Here's what I think could have been done better k. you've see this all the time in boxing. You see this in movies. I wanna see at a big fight, not only the fighters, but I want either their manager or their head coach to be there as well. I think you need more voices than just the two. And in this particular case, wouldn't it have been fun to have all up there when it up there and then damn exchange barbs. I've just always like, you know, in boxing, like there's some fathers that are like from the Lakers, right? Like Lonzo ball and lavar ball. I think that ad. Adds to the drama a little bit, and I think that would have been fun to have the butters can only exchange so much. You know, I, I'll eat did actually. Pardon us off camera. If I'm trying to keep him away because things can get out of hand with all these sometimes. But it's going to happen anyway. I was talking HBO or in a public setting like that know exactly what they did because like your turn WWE managers or is that the point? That's kind of the point I don't. I don't think that they're not WW managers though, because they all trains. I mean, he gets in there. He has valid points of view saying something. It's not just some wackadoo saying it, right and coach cavenaugh that's coach its head coach. I think you can add more to it tailing onto the point that I just made. If if if the UC to start moving more in this button up way and in some ways, more toward boxing, like what kind of plays into what goes to saying, where I, I would agree with them if they're gonna, go go that route in the future and not do a day us at least you econ of relevant as to the main event by bringing up the coaches, I will say, how do you tire me that would've ugly if it was like, I put it this way if I was John Cavanaugh the opposite. But like go ahead and make fun of my book. I'm okay with you. Making fun of me compared to the good, because let's just say, I'm not going to make you the too much in this guys, but it seems that Konta McGregor has some ammunition Ali, I just put that out there that wouldn't have seemed like a good idea for all aid to go up there yesterday. And I you saying, could we also have had Pederson Ferguson instead of the other to use midget? I wouldn't. I wouldn't do that because then I think especially with those two, it's going to they're going to get lost those guys because everybody wants to know about your loss, the coaches and the hell. No. Do you now all these guys? Right? But what about colorful other colorful fighters? I think any other fighter would get lost in it because the other two are just so powerful to focus on that main event that here's the one thing that you could have been y'all the only because Habib's English is challenged a little bit in a study like that, but you needed somebody to get heated on that side and Habib can only get heated so far. Yeah, I think that would have really, really sold a lot more. Here's what you could have done, but it just doesn't work because Habib doesn't worlds during the job. All this. What I'm saying right after nine. Oh, aside from this, you think the Trump the ball anywhere else? Well, this couldn't happen, but maybe in the future? Yeah. Because that'd be business doesn't drink, but when did have great if he had a vodka sponsor and they're just what I can. You can't do it, but I thought that would have been funny. He brought out his own bottle and then I dunno, simple. I just wish they had the fans there. So yeah. So I was gonna say Marvin yesterday. By the way I was talking about the whiskey specials. Those I do a vodka special for Khabib and then the Russian people that are going to be coming through. I walked to that those kind of what to touch on, uh, point that George made, I will say like, yeah, I don't think you should have anyone else up there like Tony and PETA's because think about it. Meme. You guys remember Glover to sharing Anthony Johnson or Holly home immeditate. Probably not because they were like wallpaper. They were pretty much the UFC to whatever sign in the back. That's what they were. Those press conferences just attorney into fans, laughing and reacting along with us. Maybe if there were any other two fighters maybe. But for those two particular, that's all you wanna hear this. Is that fight? Yes, yes, folks. How did you react to it? Eight. Six, six, five, two, two, two, eight, four, six. What did you think or let us know via the chats? YouTube, we'll check Twitter and see what your thoughts were. There. You wanna use the Mace or combat sports scoring system, ten nine call it a KO, call it a submission for either guy that were battles within the war. Or did you even catch it or or catch highlights? Would you think I'm curious, eight, six, six, five, two, two, two, eight, four, six. We are going to be talking to Paul filter today. He's a spillover from yesterday. Just kinda got tied up at the at the airport, so will airport I thought that they only uses trains. Yeah, not not. He was at the airport. He's flying to l. as part of the Fox Sports coverage for this weekend's, you've see fight night one, thirty, six card out, Sao Paulo, Brazil. So we will. We'll catch up with Paul get his thoughts on the the main fights there, and that's it, man, junky nation, your chance to come through before. Forget tonight too. Big games modern day. The number one team that I'm more high school football team last year, the best high school football team ever. That's right. Then, California, right? George, no. In the in the nation in the nation. Last year we were fifteen and we had the offense player of the year two defensive player of the year and the coach of the year, and we steamrolled everybody including Bishop Gorman, who had lost in five years. We, we put it on them and broke their five year winning streak Bosco and a bunch of other teams, some powerhouses out in California, but California big states with others. There's a team called, I am g coming out of Florida and they wants them. So they're traveling and it's tonight they're rated number one monitor. As number three, they think has lost a couple of players that once they feel like. Like because we lost a few players that that that's it cooked, but you'll see we're going to pull through tonight and the USC Trojans. I think we're going to get back in the wind calm. I think we've taken off, you know, some of the mistakes from earlier earlier in the season. I think we're going to run off about six or seven straight. I want to give props, but I don't know California's a huge St. George, where are these these honor day monarchs. What was the mean streets. Okay. Ask them, did you ever play any of the any of the Hawaiian Hawaiian teams make it over to play. Team. I'm gonna pull up the USA today, sports football, rankings. And I think I've seen a Hawaiian team in there. There's a lot of Texas teams, California teams, Florida, Florida teams. There's always a couple of hios Pennsylvania's, but I have seen Hawaii appreciate this. One of my favorite high school games, I went to a green. I didn't go to green valley Gators also route Skyhawk out here bones to green valley Gators an actually had a pretty decent team as far as for the local, at least the time, right. Las Vegas valley in the Vegas valley teams. And one of the better ones and team from why came over a high school football team to play them and the Hawaii side. Granted, there are a lot of lot of Hawaiians here in Vegas, a lot more local had more people, and they were definitely louder louder contingent. We're talking about press conference for press conference. They had more people on their side of the bleachers in Vegas than the Vegas home team did, and they wash them. It was like fifty, seven, six or something. The Vegas teamer that way into the Hawaiian team, and it was it was just great. Like you just saw a bunch of like three hundred pound plus. Samoan's that were sophomores, like no way that guy's suck Moore's on the field. And just smashing, Gators isn't pretty big athletic dudes too, but it was this news just mashing them and you just out sitting on the green valley Gators I just laughing and just watching people's like attitude get crushed, and people just leaving leaving early leaving the game really. What you must feel watching modern day games Latta that they're doing a lot of the crushing George. We've been doing a lot of crushing is of late, and this is a big game and make no mistake. The number one for reason. In fact, my godson remember last year. Awesome season. Well, I am g academy actually invited him to go out there and all the top eighth graders went out there and played and Logan. Logan. Yeah. While he was out there with an axe. That's the legal, no. So it's just kind of like a tournament and then righted those teams to go out there and boy rooms. Okay. Yeah. But while they were there, hey, you know the the toward it and everything. Supposing it's like seventy five thousand a year, and but it remember this is big business. Now they're probably these kids for high school and then college and then get them to the pro to be making some money. So there's a lot of parents that have money that that wanna make something happen. So he toward it and they told them they'd love to have him there at the academy, but he wanted to stay home in California, but that's how good he is. Aggressive. Yeah, but yeah, but so I know it's going to be on television tonight and I'm going to be watching them and USC kick off at the same time. You know, I told Logan, say, if you want me I am if you want me to go over there, you gotta give me a jersey this as weapon x on the back. I said, well, the next out there he hate me. I, let's see. I'm trying to look and see if I can find this year. Just tell you if I was in fact correct. Should be the top teams in Texas. Scroll down. Let's see here. Let me get market win and I'll find it while he talks. He's you don't pay attention. It's cold anyway. Junkie hotline. Oh, film Waco. Yeah. You don't bet that you talk. What's up. So they picky, but us gist of the Buddha. Will go with a unanimous decision for on on he can dot com deep with his guts, man. Will he go talk. Golden hypothetical, political, miracle, whip. Just like butter, his rights were legit. Yeah. You know what guys is this is him danger. Okay, supposedly Irish mobster that he either had to pay pay off or if you believe all the rumors that are out there. Right? So you know that. I mean, he's come head to head with quite a few fighters now. I mean Cody Garbrandt we know him as a hot head and you saw him step up to him. But I think Cody was he had just enough resistance because he knew he was invited there by your favor. He knew that was cameras. His career hadn't blossomed yet, but he's already had that type of run in remember the words with Woodley remember the words with Habib of ill Brazil. Brazil, then the Irish mobsters story. And now he's getting like Marco, said, political and talking about this country. You shouldn't be doing this and you're done your dad's a coward and props to Habib for one answer that he did have he said the reason he's not saying anything because my father taught me to always be respectful. Even if somebody we've had disagreements with you, owe them that respect. No matter what. And I thought, wow, I wonder if anyone else caught that because that was. That was a pretty strong answer from them. I want you to continue market, but I want you guys to think about it. Like I just think at some point, you know, is the wrong person going to be guess what? I don't got morals, and now also we've got a problem. You know what I mean? Yeah. Anyway, go ahead. Marco. Like other ones they'll C-SPAN basically cohere deadbeat dad and a and a terrorist because going to repair the mineral that shirt of for the Mayweather fight. He goes deeper. He's research. I'll street doesn't need all that though. Guys to sell pay per views. He does. He does. I don't know. I don't know. I think he could have left all that out and everyone would still be buying this. What? What was the line in the Mayweather fight to remember the line? Yeah. What do you mean the betting line. Wasn't very close. Was it. That's why he needs it. We we, we may well, you have one of those like minus four hundred when it closed, didn't it close, treat it treat, treat him in the press conference. Kabibi tried to stonewall smart, and that's the smart approach to call festival. Yeah. And like you said, goes, if the opponents not going to give them those layers within con is gonna create those. Marco. Real quick to more points infidelity a model fixing Beuys. I seen God on a Jew and I usually fibers watched fight best. I'd like Kobe, familial people would watch it on YouTube at one point on enemy, don't they find him everywhere. I love seeing to join Jones news. He's not gonna funding New York. I didn't believe it, but then then white double done on his four center for them to Stephen me. He say during was gonna fight and two thousand eighteen dot. But I smell on. He saw guys. Okay, see, Marco, you on your answering your question. I did mention that yesterday. Sure. I think the best way to figure that out is does Conor McGregor walk alone when he goes out, is he by himself? Usually not. So I would say yes, he is not as manager, but I haven't noticed the security detail or anything like that. His staff yesterday, like a staff of twenty or something like that. Guys running up and giving them whiskey. And I think he, I think he's afraid. He insulted a lot of. I would say he's foolish not to have people around him a few years ago. There was. It may have been the chairman, despite may be the all do fight. But his team invited me to come out because he was actually going to go to the Caesar's palace forum shops, and there was a watchmaker there, then I think had made them want, or they sub that was going on there, you know, and but that little group didn't include security detail, how big? Well, I mean the couple of his teammates, but it looked like, hey, we'd be hanging out with you if you weren't teammates, it could've just been home. Ease. He didn't. I don't know. Maybe things have changed. A couple years have gone by since then. Almost three, but still. Hey, let me finish this, though. We're going to go to break here. I'm going to give you the teams. Let's just can be give you the top five teams. I m d academy Bradenton Florida, Saint John Bosco bellflower California, modern day Santana. California, California means Allen Texas. So the high highschools Allen and the cities also Allen Texas, and then they'll one Saint John's in Washington DC. Now after that, I'm not going to tell you the school. I'm going to tell you the state, Florida, Maryland, Texas, Florida, California, how why? It's called Saint Louis. You ever heard of that highs? Yeah, that's what my family went. My my father, my father's brother. What's the farther farther? Okay. Says centennial corona or sorry, California, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indianapolis, Louisiana, Utah, New Jersey, Georgia, Ohio, Georgia, South Carolina, California, Maryland, Texas, anyway. All right. Let's take this break. You're listening to ever made junkie radio on fight nation. Challenge. Three stay close. We'll be right back.

Just go to serious dot com slash sports today and then click at my calendar. Now the song that's playing right now. It was. This is Carlos Santana. Yeah, Andy. This is the most animated. I have ever seen buffalo in my life. A little drink swaying. I don't know if you had a drink, but he was singing and dancing. He loves us on more animated than one Connor is asking where he was at the end of the press conference, no win when they're screaming at Ali, whereas. Buffalo blue is right. He is trying to say the internet sensation that's getting call them. Yeah. I mean, I got imagine that's kinda was calling, but anyways course coming up. You got more than he bargained for with that or or do you think that was just to take the pressure off be or do you do you think he likes inserting himself into the equation? Yes and no. Dan had pointed to this that if you noticed when he comes on our show, he will apologize like he's the first guy that will say I was out of line if he felt he was out of line, you can talk to them and a lot of times not the guy that's going to say, you're crazy. You're crazy should be like a lot of times they'll say, and sometimes the emotions get the best of me. So I don't know, but I got magin. There's a little bit of it that he probably does like right, can do it. Would you think of this line Dan Habib would be dead right now if he got off the bus speaking about April, meaning he would have killed the beep. And then yet even backs up by saying, and I'd be in a cell is a second though, even though it was, was it powerful? I guess. Remember, Joe lunch pill consumes everything. You and I goes hardcore. Come on. That's not gonna happen, but. By that up, easy to jump on the death thing because you can take it, literally are thick. That's a positive message that's too far and I get that that credible argument for that. But you know what actually bothers me. It's the second line. You said George? It's an hour end up in jail cell because to me that gave it, it takes took off the genus, but it was a bad thing because it up the cheating where it was like, oh, you, you were so trying to be that bad boy in the movie. And that is typical bad boy line, right? I'll end up in jail, so, and that almost bothers me more because it's just like, really, that's going to benefit you that was going to benefit the fight. And I just I just hate that persona and kinda like again, leading to what you just said before the break, George, is he going too far you just laid out these escalations and. There's only up in the anti, you know, there's a good part to it. He scaling his businesses very scalable business with whiskey props to you Mr. McGregor for that working that deal in, but the chambers, right? But the other side's scaling and only going upwards is, like you said, George the behavior and there's a double edge sword, man, you knew that be great question to Frank. MIR. Yeah, but you know, do you remember the times we've dabbled with with progressing and this what I mean by that folks, there'd be times where on Saturday morning goes and I would watch progressive, and then there'd be like five years I'd go, hey, what's up? Man? Watch pro wrestling five years, and then they reeled us back in. I think in the late nineties with the attitude era, we watched via more years more shows anyway, if you think about it, that attitude are made got things real popular, but I clearly remember the undertaker being a big star and he would basically in brace death and they'd have a coffin match. And then he talked about burying you and stealing your soul. And again, if you can get yourself out of reality for just a moment, which is what a lot of these athletes lash entertainers wanna do you can also realize, okay, he says he's painting a picture, but in reality we all know that that's not true. So right again, healthy or not entertainment or. Not. I'm just asking you, do you dig it. Not really. I really don't care. Granted. The attitude era was what twenty years ago. And now we're in the sensitive area. Era where everyone's like. And I, it's just paying attention because the sport is new and you know that's going to happen one day. I would say price stay away from it. All right. But any men, the whole argument about pro wrestling and if you're dumb enough to think this is pro wrestling, I don't wanna talk to you. So it's like, I, I don't really spend much time on that. This is pro wrestling. This is not there to different things. If you can't figure out which is which real quick ice has McGregor lost his mind a little bit. Okay. Did you notice stopped short of saying other stuff down. What what did you think of his demeanor and his the way he was acting. 'cause. I don't want to contribute to contribute to it, but I know that it was out there and a lot of people have have stated. He may have been drunk. He may have been on something or does he just have it in them to just turn it on like that. A lot of people do. I don't know if you guys watch. That's probably a bad example. Okay foot, what's it called? With Bill Maher real talk. Real time. He just had Steve Balmer the owner of the clippers ahead, a bunch of energy damn. The clippers I used to be with my wow, and he did it for fifteen minutes. That's could that just be Carter. And what do you think of all of what people are using them? Damn thing. I mean, I get what you were saying. They're kind of dancing around and I don't want to add to the speculation either. So can I just instead quote the great Rick, James. Oh, cocaine is a hell of a drug, and I don't want to say that he'd lost his mind. I will defend them in that. Although the statement that I just made defend him, but I will say, I think there are other other other things at play that kind of, again, kind of come with this area type in the narrative. And we kind of see this. The. Timeout, this podcast last night as I as I can use outta and John Jones news, right? And we, I was talking about the the John Jones progression. I see. You know, it's the second flight granted, but I've seen for the first time at USC ninety four against Stephan Bonner under that GSP pen to two-car, right? Who's who's this guy doing this flashing moves? And I fell in love with them like everybody else. But around that title one that epic run, he start seeing hints here and there and the from the go, get your fans moment to the car crashes on the evidence. Slowly starts stacking, kinda like George did with with with corner with the time line with Conor McGregor and the same with Connor, you know, we see this martial artists and even when he's doing his mental warfare. He never went past certain line. I would argue with Jose Aldo, right? And I would argue that Jose l. that UC ninety four post fight press conference. I think is the last time we saw that McGregor who had that union the and he had the craziness. He had the vaulted Lee, the wildness brashness, but he also had that martial artists balance respected Diaz. I appreciate it. That was awesome. That was probably one of one of the highlights, but but yeah, so I don't think he's losing his mind, but I guess my long winded things, there's a progression here, right? I'm sure we can look at other superstars in sports or musicians and bands. It's something about that popularity. And essentially, again, you only go upwards so much that double edged sword, especially when other substances or characters you mentioned even the Irish mob. These hanging out with quote, unquote, shady characters. It's kind of. No shock right guys that these quote unquote stereotypes are playing out before I wish onto the best. I don't want any of these negative stereotypes to beat you're to play out but kind of out of shock. Right. I think if it were really him, he would be doing this at WalMart as well. We doesn't right. Walk dials WalMart and say, you'll do not then like that. He's a normal guy, right? Yeah. So we're really him. It'd be doing this in other settings, and he doesn't seem to do that. Wal mart aren't about the final and people at WalMart previously insulted how many times do people get on your tits though when you're out and about in public, right? The key. If he was like that, he would have snapped on someone by now. But. Drugs and alcohol can change a person. I'm not saying that's CONNER, but I think what can change people even more power. Yeah, and he's accumulated a lot of power in short amount of time. We break Paul who's gonna call in. So it's a major radio on Sirius. XM rush, ninety three go to the rumors tab. There on may junkie all along with us. When we talk about UC fight night one, thirty, seven.

Enjoy refreshing content by the common man for the common man on barstool radio on power eighty five and streaming on your phone or at home. On series extent connected devices and speakers. This weekend is you've see fight night one, thirty seven my head to versus Anders and back in l. a. working the desk. We'll be Paul Felder you've see, lightweight slash. Vox sports. Commentator slash c. broadcaster. He'll be working the desk with Dominick Cruz and Karen Anderson on. Let me give you a couple of things here. You need to take note of the prelims obviously fight pass. Has you covered early on six forty, five PM eastern start time. Then we switch over to f s to eight thirty pm eastern start time eight thirty eight bumping it up by thirty minutes. And of course there's a trickle effect to that. The main card over on f s one that's ten thirty PM eastern star time for those fights. And of course joining us. Now on the hotline is Paul Felder Paul where you tracking all that. Attracted all I listen to all that. All right. Paul. It's got to be mentioned. All right. I'm sure you saw yesterday's press conference. Could every card benefit from something like that. I mean, I, it's got me so pumped up for the fights in Las Vegas that for for just a moment just to be, I forgot there. There were fights, but of course I'm a hardcore junkie. I know it all and there's gonna be some great fights tomorrow, but could could you have put up with something like that? You know, you know, last week in Russia and this week in Brazil. What do you think man or does it does? It mean need to remain special with just select individuals that can pull it off. I do think it has to be for certain fights because I just don't think it's going to get the attention and the buzz unless it's a big time. Like, you know, I think it's got to be a special occasion and I think it was kind of genius of the UFC kind of waited. They kinda held off. You didn't get much. You didn't really hear much about the McGregor ABI fight until Bowman out of nowhere. They've got this press conference media only got this buzz going on about it, and I think it really did job. And now everybody is talking about that fight again. I mean, we were all waiting for that by regardless, but they played it. They like slow played it. And I kinda liked that they switch things whereas McGregor had world tours without and all that kind of stuff. And now suddenly it was like nothing, nothing. Nothing. One night. Two guys, onstage all contrast. I thought it was kind of brilliant. The morale had to sought. Those Santus gives me fights, Eric Anders in the main event. I wanted to ask you obviously Santos's at an advantage because he had a full fight camp, but how dangerous is a fighter, who's taking a fight on six to seven day notice. It's like they're playing with house money in a in a way as you know what I mean. So does that make them even more dangerous in a way. Yeah, I think. I think it depends on how they approach it. You know. Sometimes they'll come out and be supergrasses 'cause they know they potentially only have one good round before they start slowing down. So they might come out and just, you know, steamroll their opponent, go right at them and I, but I don't know if that's necessarily Erica enders style, but he's super it. He's always in the gym. I know that kinda guy he's always shaved, didn't have to cut wait to make two five. Any might have a little bit, but you know what I mean in terms of cutting down to two one eighty five. This is probably a breeze form. So yeah, I think he's always dangerous and I think he's doing it because he loves fighting him and wants to get the attention and and get the buzz and get in there. So I think it's a smart move on his part stepping in like this for the US only going to who status with the company, I think. Yeah. And for six to eight to ten weeks, he didn't have to obsess over it. He didn't have the over the way cut. It's not his weight class. So if he goes, oh, and one, no big deal. Deal, but imagine if he goes one to know and he's got another hand to play. So I, I'm really liking this decision by Erik Anders actually. I like it. Man. I liked that guy. I called, I think, two or three of his fights already. This'll be my third or fourth fight on Eric Anderson. He's somebody I'm very familiar with someone he stepped in. It was like, all nice. I, you know, no, no research necessary. I just called his last night. I called the one before that and it main event Leona Machida I called a spite when he called out owed him and see that after his win. So he's, he's the guy become a fan of and very familiar with. Let me send it over to your favorite goes goes Paul. Phil, that's kind of what I wanted to touch on about being near favorite now about this is now probably you're getting to that point where you've done this enough where you're starting to call guys for their second. Third fight. Maybe even fourth fight. That relationship that you have. We all knew you. Paul Felder the fighter and there's some people. Obviously, a lot of people do know us fighter, but a lot of people know you as popular the analysts as well. Have you ever felt like that line is starting to shift a little bit as ever weird when you're talking the fighters? Like do they ever feeling? Maybe I shouldn't tell this guy this. 'cause he's also an analyst. Is that ever happened of lines ever been blurred. No, the only time it's blurred maybe when when I run in the fans and things like that. And sometimes lately, the first thing they say to me is they, you know, I love what you're doing in commentary and in your analysts work. Oh, and I love it when you're fighting engine expert. But a lot of times though it starts guys mentioning me as as a commentator, which that that to me is still a little weird. The pacing of a fight night when you're calling it or when you're at the desk versus when you're actually there fighting, how much different is that for you? Like emotional. Why is it ever get confusing? Sometimes. It's totally different. I mean, it's like doing our would compare it to like doing film work or theater work, you know, as an actor because when you're live, they're calling it. You start, don't stop. There's not much hersal. There's you just go through it and it is what it is at the end and you're just riding that roller coaster, whether you're messing up or not. When you're on the desk, it's a little more setup. There's there's topics are going to talk about. The fights are usually already over. So you know what you're going to talk about your notes. You're talking points are. So in that regard, it's a lot slower. Lot more breaks a lot more. You know, it's just television. It's much more like working on on that thing anchorperson on on the news. Whereas when you're live doing it or stepping in the cage and actually. Interviewing these guys. It's sorta Li in the moment and a lot more grennell involved in a little more exciting for me. What happens more for you? Paul at the end of a night when you fought, do you take what happened that night and feel more excited to talk about it as a broadcaster or at the end of a night broadcasting to you feel more excited to take everything you learned there and apply it towards your personal fight life. I would say I'm more excited to when I call if I. And see what guys do learning from from what these other fighters are going through and doing. It makes me more excited to get back into my own training camp in my own work and get back to the grind little bit. You know, these guys inspire me, especially, you know, I get the call guys that I've looked up to guys. That are legend in the sport and guys might division, maybe maybe some spark me like I just called a mirror back causing moths fight in in in Russia. So you know, he's, he's been killing it on a six fight win streak. So I like that. I'm like, all right. I gotta get back into this. I gotta start training when I'm talking to these guys. So. Makes me hungrier as fire. All right. Let me send it over to Dan, Tom, our fight analyst, Dan, whatever Paul Felder shoe, Paul. I don't want to continue to jump on the train and complement your analysis though. I'm glad to hear that it is, you know, of trickling through your way, well deserve it, but I've talked to you about this before one of the things I really appreciate you aside from, obviously you're fighting style, which you know most of us have come accustomed to. I is, you know you, you have acting background. You did some college acting college. The inter- I got imagine that helps. But on your Twitter about a couple of weeks ago maybe couple of months ago, this point Paul, you posted some old footage maybe from theater project used to do in Philly? Correct me if I'm wrong, are you going to be a tweet out anymore? That stuff that was fun, man. Looking back at that. Yeah, yeah, I, I'm gonna start trying to because I do want to start getting back into that and. You know, maybe pursuing film work and things like that, especially towards the end of when I'm when I'm going to hang up the gloves. It's definitely something that I want very much to get back into. Whenever I see come across old old footage or newspaper clippings reviews and things that I did. It really makes me out miss miss the acting and you know, I'm out here in LA. I've got friends out here still trying to do at one of my friends. Ryan is directing play. You know a play that we. Even worked on and studied in college and he's directing and still silk rining and trying to do it that way. Man, I was hoping it was gonna be open while I was out here. I was going to go tonight still in rehearsal, so I'm not actually able to go in and see show, but the I miss it. So yeah, I'll try to pull up some moral clips and things like that. But since it was theater, there's not. There's not as much out there. You know, it's it's not filmed a lot of the time. So right. I don't have as much. What is like, yeah. Yeah. Paul filters our guest here on MA junkie radio. You'll see him at the FOX desk all weekend long for preempt fi coverage for UC fight night one, thirty seven, the fight seven, eight from Brazil. Sao Paulo, Brazil to be exact with the main event of yoga Santos versus Eric Anders. That main card is on f s one at ten thirty PM eastern start time. The pre them start at eight thirty PM eastern start time. And note it will be on Fox Sports too. And I want to take something from their Paul as we leave you here, Evan done versus Francisco, turn Aldo, Evan done pretty public about the fact that this last fight he's gonna retire. How do you that? When. How do you think his state of mind is you're not there yet, but these fighters that you have been around where they have, you know, called it quits whether you were there live or your back in l. a. or whatever do they have they already? Is there a foot already out the door or do they wanna finish with a bang? What? What have you noticed the trend. Well, I think a lot of times, yeah, I think there for a little out the door even if they are trying to convince themselves that they're not. I don't know how you can help, but but think it's over. You know, this is my last one doesn't matter. So it could go one or two ways. You just go out there and really try to throw down and leave it all in there. But I feel like a lot of times guys who've already decided mentally that this is it. When the going gets tough, what do you? What do you pushing for? Wh-why? Are you in there still way somebody counting you, you're in the bottom position. You're getting Francis Coachman all those stolen bombs on you. What keeps you going? I don't know. I can't speak for having done, but I know that if I already said, hey, I'm done. And that guy's just smashing me. It's it's a tough position to be in really fight through. I think. Think that's a high risk situation of put yourself into. And especially when you're fighting a guy like all all, who's you know, still dangerous, still active still wants to pursue this. It's it's a tough guy in his country to be going again. Paul will close with this. They're already feeling out Toronto Milwaukee soon. It'll be Vegas. The main cards already been set for Vegas at the end of the year, which one of these cars are gonna have your name on it? Walkie. Well, Milwaukee at this point would would be. Be a bit of a miracle. Fortunately, I think I had some really, really good news the doctor yesterday. Or two days ago, but I'm still not cleared for for full sparring yet, and he probably doesn't think he wanted blocking kicks or anything like that on the forum until probably Tober, which would mean I would go right into training camp from being cleared, which is not something I'm gonna do. I'm gonna play smart, and I wanna have at least a couple of weeks to get back into sparring. Save before I started training camp and see all my Armfield. I'm lifting with it. I'm doing every single thing you can do it now accepts for like full, emanate, kickboxing, basically. But I've been cleared to do jitsu having cleared to wrestle hip bags, hip pads, lift heavyweight. But still no sparring. So, and so I get that green light on sparring. I'm not gonna make an official decision yet and obviously, Sean Shelby knocking to give me a fight until medically hundred Saint cleared. So it'll probably be end of end of December or January most likely, but I will be one hundred percent at Milwaukee with my team, and we'll see maybe even calling vikes who knows right on Irish dragon.

Watch live on the why YouTube stream. On play. All right. We go with the second hour of radio show. I miss spoke at the end of the first hour. I said, we'd be back in a minute as one day. We'll be back at the top of the hour after a one minute break, changing our break structure a little bit. You'll barely notice it, but the the one thing that'll be glaring is. Once we complete the first hour, we begin the second. It's a, it's a quick turnaround super-quick. So that's it. Everything else will pretty much be similar want the count for a little bit of that time that extra ninety seconds on our commercials, but you'll you'll barely notice tonight. John mccaw. Teixeira we'll be facing Antonio, Mckee, junior, AJ, Mckee. Sorry. That'll be on does own an Paramount's. Then they go to just as on for the next card. So this is your last chance to. Exploit what does own does, and that says, hey, thirty days tribes for free. They really want you to do it. We're not trying to pull the wool over anyone's eyes or shortchange anything, but this is a real good chance for you to try out thirty days and get like seven eight events out of it for him, boxing, three or four and Emma may including the two back toback hards for the heavyweight grand prix that includes the beta material and fight and the sun in Malian Inca fight. And of course, that's an October. Then in what's that? It's creeping up on. And then. Vanda leeann rampage on the twenty ninth. Along with ROY and saucy and course Korsakov. I mean, that's gonna be a fun car to that little staredown with Vanderlei stuff. Forget the boxing today. Rambunctious tomorrow, right? Yeah. That's generated a lot of talk about that fight where early on people were like, all right. I mean, I'm kinda in, but I'm not really trying to break it down and figure out, but that little staredown that little thing created a lot of buzz could Connor Habib. Maybe not from cornerside because he is on probation in that state. I guess it'd be doesn't really do that. Maybe not a but could Connor had pointed at his chest having Habib, then shove him or enough people already sold in that in that I didn't need that. Having been the cherry obviously goes, you wanna Sunday, Dan, Tom, because one Sunday or bananas, split you guys go cool. Give me the spoon. Let's get started. But I don't think at any point you'd go usually comes with a cherry, but if I added it, you'd go. Thank you. So that have been the Cherry's that little little did. I think it would have helped. To Connor shows on, perhaps it gets them in trouble. But if each is kind of like somehow touches them in the shoulder or the chess, and that gets a beef to make some sort of a gesture or pushback thereby he in is the one that initiates that Dana obviously gets in between breaks it up, but does that even that hit more shows and create more highlights and hype? I think so. I don't think I don't think so. I don't think I think it's the one situation where it doesn't help because you already have him throwing a chaired at a bus, and you already have the US playing their own cherry on top of it by making their own break. Window graphic with Conor McGregor name is in the chair is like they really. They really sold on like the five or six rations. They have their their their trailer ready. They have like five or six rations of just that scene so they don't need it for that. As far as the push and kind of detracting value, it would get you in more trouble than normal plush or normal. What if some guy sprains his ankle or worse case scenario that you'd face with any guy. By doing that at an older -cation you face it more so because you already have the incident in New York and they are actually in New York yesterday. So you know, again, even Connor was as as crazy as he was saying he cited, he was a, hey, I had this this. They're breathing down my neck here in New York member. He was listening off like he was aware at where he was at. Here's here's what I'm getting at the. Okay, all of that. All those playbacks, all those countdowns everything we've seen your correct. You see has found a way to slip that in there and I'm not hating on them honestly. But what I'm talking about is, is that couple that's walking by whether it's the sports book or that little spot. We have here, you know, it's got some TV's around the corner. What's that call. Will they have the slurpee or the? I don't remember that Tuesday has. That's what it is. It's something else another popular or even bar that maybe has the volume down. But most of the time what I'm talking about is that ESPN voice where you say common after this things got heated in New York. If you just see true, Connor like with his glasses, kind of making that gesture like sunny from Bronx tale, you know, on the other side, data's in the middle. You might just go, I'll ask that Connor McGregor guy, right? But if you're walking by and you see that show of or just that close quarter contact, is that what you tell you girl that you're holding around and you guys are on your way to the pool, you go, hang on a second, and you wait that spot the commercial. He come back and then you let them go through their thing. And you see, just because humans like shit. I think so I'm that type of guy where if I see that like reality TV even if I've never watched the show before, kind of just have to know what happened. So they've gotten me before. That's a good way you pitch to George and say, with the way he pitched it if that's casting net so to speak. And we're reeling it back to your paper view things and how much it's going to add, I would say, and this is me. I'm more on the conservative side. I take four to six percent up. Pay per view buys. Maybe that guy tells the white water six percent hate is in your cousin like fighting to come over barbecue on October the and you never know. It's weird, man. It's weird how that little moment you'd be so key. I would've never seen jersey shore. I actually is so sad that it boiled down it because the guy hit a girl and you see guys coming to the defense of the girl. And then of course, that girl snooky are you getting told me she would have been as popular? She is now if not for that incident, take a look at the jersey shore. People they all got like, I'm gonna throw numbers. One point, seven million one point, two, one point, four s- look. You'll have like five point, five minutes like she stands out now. Granted, she's a jackass and. Our form of entertainment, blah, blah, blah. I think a lot of it was just from that and remember early on, she wasn't cool. She got hit the fans or sorry, roommates rallied behind her, but early on. I remember think chins left. Right? She, she almost she doesn't. She doesn't side a little bit and and didn't work out for her. But then finally, it was finally episode savage or what it was aired MTV was the marketed that perfectly. I haven't seen the new season as good, a new one Vegas. You haven't seen it yet. It's airing already. Yeah. Oh, fucked up. Man. I saw that. She's thought it was a replay of lamb. You know, it's good, skipping and everything. It's. I don't even seen the season finale for the last one. I see that. And then I. Then I figured Dan, Thomas, such contrary in that not only have I never seen an episode. I'll go possitive you that I didn't like that marketing and fat, but I will say this what actually got me interested was the very beginning where I thought they got the marketing right guys was the very beginning. Remember this they went away from this is such a ridiculous show. They marketed it right. They marketed it very seriously like documentary. Remember they're showing like almost like a black and white jersey jersey shore, like the subculture the life that you don't know about it just showing like politics putting his hair together, like a black and white shot at him, the background, and you just seen the close up grabbing the gel the jewelry, like a superhero, getting geared up and like it was really this ring any bell. It was actually really well then trailer because of the contrast for what what we, what we know the show was black was a great. It was a great contrast, and it actually got me interested now once all the other stuff thrown Dan, Tom tuned out. And actually I was a loyal junkie listener, of course, at that time when you and I will admit that those are the time of the show. No, the jersey shore recast. Shut up during the break because he was just so into wanted to talk about it really. So I thought they made it like four or five families for thirty to forty days. My kids will miss. Situations like that might go to jail. Let's go. And the one guy was going to be a dad Ronnie. I'm gonna be dead months later. They got together did another thirty to forty or the town right now gone, holy such great didn't want do start dabbling and may or at least using it to get in shape. Yeah, yeah. I think he just went to a gym and did some. I think Ronnie. Like hit pads and shit like that. But yeah. But if that were to happen now with this whole Logan, Paul, I can only imagine where that could have legs. That. Undefeated out there in fights were open weight, grand prix to the bigger guy. I guess, but his Logan, Paul and he's got the state that what state qualifier. Fourth place I take on Logan, Paul, the size difference, hey, you know, he's he's pretty big. He he, he hit the cut to make. The one eighty did hear. We say, state high school. Yeah. Yeah, was. So I'd still take take take them all fight them or. You're full of a man. I, I'm confident because ashes because he, he, he's physically much better athlete than me and would would would be favored on paper to kick my ass for sure twice. But but no, I, that's not. Got it. Sounds back as the media guy talking right now, but the martial artists Amee and defend defend Japan's honor and the bullshit that he did over there would that alone would would give me the fuel on my twenty years of martial arts training to fuck him up. So. I like that for free for free daily debate. Today's Nick facilitate extreme tour, closed doors and five. Hell no sell out on arena. Mix them loop. That is true. Mandalay bay said that just approve how much how their validity and those words that I said just now to me that. I mean, I don't. I don't care. I'll I'll do it for of the rewards and all the risk. You know how galleys here configuration. Middle while mine mine is really, I think mine is JD from the and he came through again. He says, not like it matters now, but it totally matters. It's called evening. Call the place over here evening. Yeah, right. All right. Well, hey, Dan, I know you're willing to. Or whatever, but I still I still believe that we could fill up the Mandalay bay. Make some money. Yeah, and you can still get your fight. You can still take out your frustrations on them. I do want to take my frustrations at a positive way though. I do. I do want to get back into grappling, coach your mind. Just moved back into town, I'm sure as you guys known. So. Yeah, so that's a fischel. Yep. Yep, yeah. Yeah, I don't wanna. I'll let him say his plans and what he intends undoing because it involves another another person. We've also had on this show, but, but I'll let them do that. But I'm pretty stoked about that old. Dan Thomasson look forward to to get back in shape for one this old second search, or is it extreme where I, I don't know what he's going to do there. But I mean, you know me I- extremes family to me and that that's always a place for me to get back into shape into go back to in all my friends and family there. So, yeah, extreme will always be my corners does call in what about your health, the big mouth. Let's have this fight and he goes December. Are you physically ready to take a fight? Or do you still. I would this pathetic for real. I would still go with. I still go to my follow up surgery, doctor's appointment and see, okay, I got to get this fixed, clue the hernias not healing, but right now I'm the point where I can. You know, I've been shadow-boxing doing light like really light kettle. Bell workouts really light body weight workouts. Yoga stretches real basic ship like that. But you know, ask him what I need to do the corrective surgery, or could I continue to keep getting myself back in shape and even getting something competitive. That will be the first thing. Second thing will be concussion symptoms which actually have been feeling better. I've, I've been. Yeah. Yeah, I've been taking on you. Yeah, that that is the big public just did. That is the big thing they've been manageable and whatnot. And and yeah, I think they've been I I don't know. I probably shouldn't be thinking about that. I shy. I'm thirty three now and again, I know media guy, but I've been throwing punches and kicks and having human beings or punches kicks. It means ninety ninety two for twenty years. So for what that's worth. Yeah, the mileage accumulators I shouldn't be talking about doing that anymore. But if we're talking about a hypothetical, that will be a damn good one, especially there's money involved on the table and I get to. Eight, a pretty boy looking super athlete who has things kind of given to all my God, like the motivation is to so there for Dan, Tom. Oh my gosh. Focus. Oh, got couple. Both those, right. We'll get to. Yeah, let's get right now to go Bryant in Boston. What's up. Dude, I qualifies the bozo. You heard that. I thought I heard my hit my cough button. Sorry, completely sucks. Hey, I wanted to touch on McGregor with the six eight contract. He'll love that guy. Loves personality loves fighting style, everything going on with them, but I don't see him fulfilling a six fight contract either. Ally. Yeah. And here's the reasons why I'll tell you mine. This one quote that stood out to me and it came from Marvel's Marvin Hagler, many moons ago. And he quoted it's tough to get out of bed to do road work five AM when you've been sleeping in silk pajamas, Greg quote, and if you look at it mcgregor's net worth right pal around on the internet, they say he's around. He's worth about eighty five million. He, he's the richest fighter in the history of the cage to go in there. So I don't see him fulfilling six fights. I think he's gonna take the big money fights. And do this stuff. Seven. I'm cool with that as well. Because for the the short amount of time he's gonna be around. I'm gonna join them. But people who get excited over six fights. I don't see. Okay, I I'm pretty similar. Yeah, as well. I think the contract was probably very airtight in some regards, but loose in other regards is what I mean for one, I think they went out of their way to say he's done boxing. He's not going to do that anymore. If he's going to have six forms of combat competitions, they will be in the Arctic on. But the one thing I don't think they did was time down and say, hey, twenty. Throttle number twenty million sign. I think they're gonna take one by one that number gets filled in, but we do know is if you're gonna fight six. Fights of any of any form of combat sports. The will be in the octagon and we'll worry about what the personal be, but we're not gonna take it one at a time like you see in boxing because I, if Dana white saying is true and this fight, maybe just going to hit another stratosphere than Dana, excuse me than Conor McGregor is gonna. Wanna negotiate each and every time you know what I mean, get a live. That's what he wants. That's what keeps him away from boxing that opportunity to do that. I think that's what the six fight contract did was say, okay, you don't need to go over there and make a hundred mil. Let's work on getting you that here now I don't know if he can, but then again, whether it's now forty one and if they did fight, he'd be forty two and like that that's going to be. I don't even know what's marketable as much again, you know, because. The ready did that. But anyway, finish up Brian, that's having actually. Okay. We'll see you go to Joe in Houston. What's up Joe. Joe, I used doing. I wanna say, shut outs. California. This morning, he wants to public, but somewhat fortunate thing could have been happening. And you know, said my prayers and I was up so four m night in the movie, came on field called, heaven can wait. And so I say, you know what? That's a good omen. So let me watch this so has lost the show in honor of moving so glad everything worked out. Yep. For those that don't know Muna from San Francisco, formerly of Seattle publicly did state that his brother was missing. And a lot of people in junky nation shared the post he posted on social media, Facebook, Twitter, he had actually been missing for few days. And honestly, when you read that, you're like, wow, you know a few days. Okay. But he did it for us this morning that his brother is is alive and and has been found. And that was a relief for me. I like moving. I really do. Guys such an awesome guy and I, I can't imagine, you know, Bouza code goes my brother. I wouldn't know what that'd be like either George hippie really rough. Yeah, it would be. But that was great to hear, hey, is that Ronin in the background that a here. Yeah, he's watching cartoons right now to to send to Jim. Yeah. What kind of cartoon for that? Man, he likes cars, so we walked in little booth on YouTube line of cars. That's okay. Joe, and I think that works, but you gotta get him on Bugs Bunny and all that old school stuff. Yeah. Into that man. He's not into that. Make them the street man. He gets paid, it'll do what it was. HOV really wanna sit of cartoons cartoons, bring a lot of after the kids if you really wanna get them laughing tone, the watch a Buffalo Bills game. That's been pretty funny. These last few weeks. I know you're Powell Marquel. Yeah, south through Brown gets for them, want to shut out the Hal for making that happen to. I'm conflicted when you do that because on one side, it's fun to make fun of more so. But on the other side, our bosses a huge fan. So I always have a dome, look on my face, like I wanna smile and that team much. He is. All right. One of one of your may saying before I get out of here, man, you know, I wanna talk about the real golden snits. He lives an Albuquerque, New Mexico. I just don't understand how this guy keeps getting slaps on the wrist. You know, we, we can, you know, fill out, you know, two thousand pages with his done in public, not to speak of stuff that behind closed doors. And this guy just continues and over and over you stuff. I don't understand it. I, the guy is the greatest fighter to ever will I say that, but I don't know how and can still be backing the sky for mistake. Mistake mistake, please helping them center. All right. Thank you for the call. Who are some of the pro athletes that have just been served up Michael Vick by that, and I'm trying to figure out what is that line, right? I mean the Michael Vick Mike Tyson away, right? These are like let the older guy time in one thing. Baseball goes had a guy named Darrell strawberry and a gun how and these guys got rented like nine ten times because and it was actually cocaine was there, was there big demon? I almost got Darrell strawberry in studio up that who sitting right there, but when I go, hey dog we're doing this. We do a show and I said that and big fan can we get you in for? And he was willing to do it, but he had to be up there to start assigning nine thirty and the show just didn't start in enough time. Yeah, but I got him in here. Yes. Had that been a Hispanic that would just said, hey, Doug, talk to you were quick. How would you sit? It was Hispanic, Phil. Nah, I don't think I would have known of ego now because I don't like people do that to get a lot mice. I don't get that. I get a Migo lot. What will they say? Oh, so I lived through an era where there was these long leashes of just suspensions. So there are times when I'm like, holy cow, like there's no way fans would have patience with the scene stuff. I've seen you don't want Joe into this call. He said it, congrats. The Browns, Josh Gordon guy who has the ease talented ABC. He's like on a third or fourth strike. He's already done the strike. We had to sit out a whole year. Now he's backing. He got traded to New England, but I, I don't know. I think John Jones does when he comes back. There's one thing he does right, and that's make fun of himself a little bit. It's usually at a press conference. We'll just go. I don't know. I, I just make mistakes and I think everyone's like pointing like, we're with your dog. We all make them. You know what I mean? So he appeals to people that that that also make mistakes and believe in these second. And third and fourth, fifth, chances, but. Well, just how he keeps getting away with, oh, how. I don't know. I like the way and there's a big big topic for me because I'm one of those people that I kind of again, I was fan of Jones for his ascension, but I always had this little little inkling. I'm like, I don't know something. Clicking guys personality was me being hater looking too much into it. And unfortunately as I do, I hate it when I'm right guy guys. Because you know these facts pop up that Joe said, you can't deny. I don't get is again, I, I'm, this is why of defer being contrarian, but I'm not a red team blue team kind of guy. And this same arguments happening here where it's either John Jones is the greatest. You guys are cry babies and just need to deal with it on one side or you have John Jones is a terrible person through. I'll never give him credit. I will netted and it's either one side or the other went, why can't we have the opinion where, for example, my opinion, the guys, one of the greatest, it gets real fuzzy when you start talking about Asterix and steroids in our sport in general. And this whole thing I think made us all kind of rethink you saw us lash what our sport is to begin with and everything in between and it has become whole nother subject, but as much as we can talk about give credit John Jones. Great. You also have to not deny the facts that he is done these things. Now, at what point? Where's the line? Here's an easy. Three segments you guys can decide in you listeners on the other side of this might Croom whether stand, but here's three segments. There's. Drugs, which I feel are in the nether region. Right? Because they hurt your salary drugs, personal drugs, recreational use drugs, marijuana, cocaine, the never read the nether region right in the middle nether nether region, right in the Middle East is right in the middle, right. It's kind of it's kind of like a purgatory. It's not a hard side because you're affecting yourself. We've seen people be functional. It might not come out to their it using drugs to later in their career, or it comes out in the middle of their career and dissolve, right? Go both ways. Whereas there steroids steroids, not a part of that steroids. I is a more on a hard side that's more on the sports side. Now, no matter how good of a person you are. No matter how much I like you you doing steroids and whether regardless of my thoughts on steroids that conflicts with the sport, that's what we get the Asterix Babe, Ruth. It happens in all sports. Right. Okay. We can agree on that. Now, the other part is here hurting other people t boning, pregnant lady and fleeing the scene rape allegations with Tyson animal rights, Allegheny. Michael Vick. If we're, you know, we're talking about these drawing lines out. This is were really now he's really losing people. Okay. Now we're all this. What people feel about the fighter, regardless of what people feel about the sport. You start going into that third region guys, you're hurting other people or other animals or other things. Now you're really going to get a drop off now. John Jones them rack losers thing here I think Joe's pointing out is John Jones has bits in all three of those categories yet. They're still so much people on board with him, and that is a hypocrisy. Now, in my saying, you should hate John Jones and I saying you love Donald. No, no. In fact, I'm saying have the healthy opinion somewhere in the middle, but I don't see why people either one side of the other. And I think that's what what Joe is trying to say, especially with people on the side of, oh, just deal with it. I just wanna see the greatest fight. Again, there's that opinion what people, but he does this. I just wanna see the greatest fight. Again. I don't know if that's good reason guys. I wanna see him fight again too. I can emit that selfishly, I'm excited the fight again. I can emit that selfishly, I don't think that's just answer or an argument. All right, more people are on. Though, so they'll give him that passed recreational or had my bit and defeated my demons and I'll know over there to root for the guy. Yeah. Okay. I'm gonna jump to the personal one which. Have you noticed that if it's your own friends telling you or social media tone you? It's very common for someone to hit someone and flee the scene now. Yes, that was such a big no-no a long time ago that that was almost like like put an on that guy. How could you do that? You know what I mean? And now it's like hope. Yeah, yeah. So the raiders I mean, it doesn't. It doesn't take you back in what I mean. And as far as steroids, I don't know. I also believe that because our laws are so much lax when it comes to the other two that I think doing steroid just isn't again. Is big of you'll, I guess, science. Started that whole that beyond a shadow of doubt thing or whatever was the OJ Simpson case. Yeah. So I had to play the old man card to give my answers. I think people with steroids, though the problem is they look at it all as one blanket sports, and there's a difference if I'm taking steroids, they hit a ball as far as I can to lot different than if I'm taking steroids to hit somebody in the head harder. And I think that sometimes they look at steroids overall in combat sports, it's way worse than it is in other sports and to add to that point. Another thing that makes it worse as that it's John Jones. Again, it's the reason why when I say suspicions about John's, it's not because I'm a hater or anything like that. It's just because it it doesn't make sense in the sense of, you know, when I say that he's admitted to cheating, does that mean he's a cheater, he's not one of the greatest. You say he's a greatest, and if you're just saying the other day that, oh, he's in michi- my, I'm talking about stuff that he has admitted to as far as infractions of the rules. I polk's and stuff that was he was accused of for years on end. And since subsquent years is omitted to doing the frustrating part is key, doesn't need to the frustrating. Part of any of these steroid test. The reason why I'm a little more forgiving John Jones. What seemed like I would be a hater and jump all over these tests. The reason I'm a little more forgiving because he clearly doesn't need to. I'm of the argument where stairways doesn't teach you how to spin kick. I don't take that argument to the Bank like these other people, but I do agree with that argument. If we just isolate it, you know, John Jones has skills that has nothing to do with whatever steroids he has or hasn't taken. And again, now touching on the, you know, touching on the sorry. Snitching strippers. It runs hitting. But. I think that's part for people is that he's doing and he doesn't. Do you really need to to be doing doing that? You're you're so talented ready already have and with the hit and run with hit and run with compare that to USC. What was it one eleven or not want eleven. Save. Again, save the lady that got mug and not just fleeing the scene, which he writes a typically, maybe the sports that's district, but he returned to the scene and then fleet again, which wipes that statistic, if you were going to put any weight into that, and again, countering with who were dealing with the superman is supposed to be our hero or model citizen the perfect guy, and he's doing this, and I think that's what makes it worse. Why are you doing that now? Why. She took a break though, right? We take a break yet have second first time in the second out we have. Okay. Let's do that while ready halfway through the second hour, you're listening to Evan made junkie radio on Sirius XM's, fight nation Ninety-three stay close and we'll be right back. Good. You still hear the poyser just getting warmed up. Now, the real show begins take it away. Boys. Do the early. So just cruise, the finish line, the Lascaux the week, want all of our guests for this week including Caitlyn. She Kagan Sam Albie, Richard hunter, Tyron Woodley Justin Willis, Joe Warren, Adam peak Alati Douglas Lima. Andy Vargas. Daniel Guerrero and Marvin furrow. Today's guests, Paul Felder on Monday Valentina Shinko will be on our show. And then on Wednesday, we're having a PF l. takeover not only is Carlos Silva their president stopping by. But if you fighters including Lance Palmer, and I believe any goliaths will also stop by they basically taken the month of September off, but in October, they have their playoff. We can now. Discard regular-season talk, and now they're in the playoff and in the playoff. Remember their six divisions starting at featherweight lately while tweet middleweight heavyweight. And anyway, those six divisions, there's eight fighters left now. I'm sure behind the scenes. There's probably some substitutes ready to go. Alternates against Chicago because in that first round for PF l. playoffs. You're gonna fight twice in one night. So after one night, all that's left is the finalists, two finalists that will compete for a million dollars. So that'll be interesting to see who makes it out of that one night and hey, yeah, I'm sure you might crack a rib or knuckle or whatever the point is, can you recover and be healthy enough to fight in December will hell. Can you fight later that night? I, but I'm talking about coming out of that night if you're healthy, can you be ready to fight till December? It'll be interesting to see how strategies are altered or what happens. You also can't tap dance around just the health of it all and getting out of that because that's when you get hurt. We'll cover all that with the athletes with Carlos civil when they come in. So that's a little bit of forecast for next week. The following week of courses, you've see to twenty nine here in Las Vegas. A bunch of our listeners will come out for our seventh junkie gathering. So it's gonna be a lot of fun because it's going to be the biggest fight ever at appears with a beam number could made off and Kana McGregor and not a bad main card Rikers pretty good. Remember back in the day GSP would fight Montreal. And then after that, even on the main card you go, that's the mink. And here we have Volkov versus Derek Lewis. We have Anthony Pettus versus Tony Ferguson. You know that that's a nice one-two-three punch. But if you look the rest of the cards, not challenged competitive, you know what I noticed what the she just passed a storage is that it's very competitive as far as betting lines go. Anna stylistically I sign off. This is not a lot of lines on there. Scratching my head like they're really competitive. It'll be real interesting within the line movement is obviously for the top fights going to have the most line movement, but but going forward you're right, it's there are some quiet gyms if you will. I mean, I think always p raise is a great fight. You important that's old school, but could really, really just keep building on what he started. And he's got this whole von Prut choke gone. And then Dominic Reyes was undefeated and he could. He be part of that next wave of of light heavyweights and then Michelle Waterson versus Felice Harry important for both of them. But it also. Finishes. What started back in two thousand six, two thousand seven. You know they were both on a reality show together and they both put in some time over a decade here. And now the loser really takes a hit. The winner keeps chugging along. You know, they're all chasing down rose. And by the way we didn't talk about it much but Valentina Shinko will defend against Joanna nj check at one hundred twenty well, not defense. All right. They're gonna compete for the vacant. One hundred twenty five pound bout the flyweight division, which means that pulls Yuliana out of. Straight. I think the same time. I think it's defend Scott wins over her well. Okay. But at the same time. They're all chasing rose, but still nothing at rose. Like I thought rose was going to be on that fight card that was roses spot there. For Toronto, and instead they announce this other one what is going to happen with rose, win, win. Do you say, rose, we feel for everything you went through. It happened on our watch while you were at work. It's like she went out there and played basketball and roller ankle or anything like that. She didn't do anything that that breaks her contract, but at the same time. The division needs to move on weight and we're here for you when you get back. But when these start having that talk now she defended in early April. Do you know the date Dan off the top of your head when you went to New York? A Pearl. Seventh. Okay. As of right now that the summer cards are feeling up and I don't see her name on there, but we do know that if she makes it to January seventh, that's nine months. So what do you think the UCLA will do to in regards to that? It was touchy subject that I would say they're going to do whatever she wants to do. It's weird because for as much trauma as she suffered still fought. Right? So she's able to put her put everything aside and getting that mental state that you need to be in to fight, not only fight but win some sure they're going to look at that. But at the same time, I mean, you see what's going on with Michael kiss. Right? Like there's a lot that the UCS to protect in that sense. So I think they're going to be as patient as you can be with her. Did you also hear Conor McGregor say when they asked him about equity in the company? And he said, no, it didn't go my way. Otherwise it would be fans here Bob, blah. It seemed like he gave this answer like within the answer that was. I didn't got get what I wanted. And I came up short. Something happened in the negotiations that came up short. Could that be that? Could that be that little tax at the on them quietly because of what he cost them or that card not being what it could have been on that particular night, if you fighters didn't find executive publicity or anything. There was a little bit. I think that's why he didn't get in Habib's face when he had the opportunity when they got close. I think before Connor would have said, I'm not going to touch him but still touch them. I think now they finally have some sort of this thing in New York then why not? Philly. Why not? Chicago, why not? LA. Why not? Las Vegas again. So many of these missing questions like this, like the crowd, that the seems easy, easy questions when I was a little disappointing, right? That's another thing, but just real quick kind of back to what I said earlier my theory, this is why my theory is much more cooks in the kitchen than before guys, which I think we all kind of know, but maybe different cooks, different kind of cooks in the kitchen than what we're used to. That's why we're seeing these decisions that are making scratch your head right way. You put it to why? Why was that ask your question? The media. There's a lot of big cities on the east coast Washington DC you, I think, could've still, by the way. There were some fans in that building if you wanna count some of those media guys. Yeah, that. Call people on the rug. But jeez, it was cringe-worthy ones. The Irish accent people going to accuse you being a Homer, no matter what you say you'd be polka babe. With that accent, you have accused of being pro or do you really have to act like a fan. And now wherever that gentleman them, my goodness, give me three fighters. Like for this weekend, I'm going to run up there and do a parlay when the show's over. Feel good about my my partly pieces which I again, you're a madman here, but jeeze. If you're if you're. The happier for this. Give me I'm taking a shot on Evan done them, but that's just more of a Homer. So I don't. I don't. I don't recommend you guys jumping off that cliff with me. I'm playing the over for Sherman sky because I think that's going over. They don't have her on here, but there are some. Tempting straight plays. I hadn't brow miss. We don't want to stay away from that one. The main events pretty volatile. Everything's pretty juice to the gills. You guys got to look for props here. I think Sam alvie you know, as much as I love a little saying. I'll via like that matchup for him. I think he's a partly piece with was on. There goes turn Aldo, Charles Oliveira. Hennion, bro. Yeah. Charles. Yeah. What? What can you tell us about Andre e will dams. He's a athletic southpaw. He has some boxing experience. I don't know if pro amateur, but watching it online and the way he fights, he kind of comes off at two you can counter. He kinda has that slow-burn pace looked defendant Tate though really well really long athletic look. So you could do some damage to Barral. But the thing is I I don't like his takedown defense only about Jiu jitsu. So if somebody guys you take him down, I I think he has the right answers there. He gives us back what he's had his back taking my lower level guys Barau. We haven't seen in a while, but the dude is a killer Bhaktapur especially when he was on his ascension. So if he starts looking bad on his feet, I think Barral hit take downs when he needs to. What was it that he finished with the arm triangle? Was that Weiland yet? And then his Mitch, Daniel was the most recent he did differently. He actually had neon belly that, yeah, yeah. Is is you they use their feet the wall. Yet if Latin their bodies start walking the clock, but other guys, they're, they're control positions. Some guys will teach it actually from that with, they'll keep that shit and almost the foot on the guys hip to keep them in place. So some guys, though, you know, they'll bridge out and turtle almost almost give their back to get out of the joke, but that prevents that. So Gary one time represented Brazil in the PanAmerican games box in box here from what you've seen. I know he's older and slower. Can that hold up against alvie sometimes good techniques, good footwork, good fundamentals. Can you know as we've seen carry fighters into their late forties in boxing connect- happen here with alvie or is alvie just like too much with pressure explosion and youth? I was going to say that that's why I was asking how we had him on honest criticism. You know, you lacks volume sometimes and I could see no gara- you know, putting on maybe not hurting out, but if he stays. Busy enough. He's in Brazil doesn't get knocked out. He could get that decision, right? The problem was not only LV us artists, and he really said he's gonna try to address it which is looking for in this light. But the problem is I went and not just no era, his recent fights, but I went like looked at mid-session on his Instagram like recent mid-session work. And let's say. It was friendly edited, which is never a good sign when it's something like at work and even despite the edits, what I saw. It was not. I didn't like it as far as speed reactions yet not good at all. Man. I love him a huge, huge little dog fan. Go, go, go back and watch his federal Shokhin and pride, even even maybe my favorite fight of amazing fight their first fight. And you know, as far as you have seen, you know, Luiz cane that knockout such a beautiful knockout he's had as rations. You know, it's fight with him shot Evans where that big upset that was a big showing, but is not the same guy anymore. That's why said is probably a, even though minus forty is a lot for San alvie know if you're looking for like, okay, we should do one more break on that base down. You listening to junkie radio on Sirius XM's, fight nation channel. Ninety three stay close will be right back to wrap up. Compassionate common says these guys have none of that.

What's up. He says Tony, at least knows English and would have said a lot more than be did. That's what they're getting that what that press conference would have been. Like if Tony was there the human moron stumped by he says, one thing to remember is we are seeing the promotional Connor. He is not like that in real life. He is a humble dude.

Our interview will come back and we'll talk about gauge the gauge McGregor story. And maybe I'll again. What do you think about Phil? Can you hurt your feelings? Perfect wanted to be noise and flowing. Do you want to introduce said the first guest of the evening. I think you know Mr poll yet. Elder cut over Paula. What was it today eight? It's one of the most sought after interviews in the sport at the moment dot F. on tastic for with Don Hoeger where credible almost retired. Yeah may who knows who knows a moderate Paul. Stop Big fight as e-explains here you know might bring a bucket of some. Obviously Dolan is looming large in August. Going to be interesting absolutely take away all was an obscene placards. V necks gas coming off an obsolete war and fight of the year contender against Dan. Hooker in New Zealand. One of the most talked about my in mixed martial arts always a pleasure Paul Fowler. First of all my buddy Donald Eaton this week. That's what I what I have to ask man today so today. Christine and Ashley Got Doughnuts. She was coming over and I was like all right. Go in this place. Yum Yum donuts in Pennsylvania. Said probably about forty five minutes outside of the city. So I don't get too too often but it's up by where she lives in a rationing. Sometimes donuts there dude are. They're big. They're filled. They're delicious. She got me six of them. Couple tell me eat a couple now. I'm going to go a little long. Walk it a little cardio in all these interviews. I had some interviews China. Bang out. Everybody get out there today. You guys are kind of like had my week to recover I three. They went down easy else. I can have another one. Gnashing wanted to try this. Cherry Pie filled one. It was like chocolate frosted with a cherry on top with Cherry Pie filling so no sugar in it at all dod yet so she takes the tiniest bytes. I'm stuck with this. Massive filled number four other guy. Screw it I'm just I'm going for it. I ate that one and I had to more pills and I'll do one more day. One eight all six of those filled donuts in probably about thirty minutes. You're like me with a gain of so I'm just the opposite way around with all I can't. It really is a problem right. I crave dish. I crave it now. You know this you've interviewed me during these way cuts you know that. It's on my mind for eight weeks nine weeks. Maybe even ten weeks for this white where. I really was disciplined for a long long long. So do now that I'm off the chain. The fight was epic. Like I'm proud of myself. Even though he didn't get the win but like I know I put in work. Just can't help help keep saying the next day you're going to be better and I will. One day I woke up. I had three eggs oatmeal. I was like yeah good breakfast. Some coffee as let's go that I just started like crushing candy throughout the day. Stop going to ask you about DOT com. Obviously you know. You mentioned the possibility retirement. Wispy way that in a SEC. I have to ask you to fight first of all. I scored it rains. Two four and five was a lot of people literally majority of people I think even online and the media world scored the fight for you. Just your thoughts. On the fight where we obviously. Obviously you're disappointed. I know you had it scored for yourself. Just your thoughts on the judge's decision. Yeah Man. That's just again another case where let me start with? It was a super close fight right. We all know head. It is set. Competitive is hell. Dan's as tough as they come in congratulations to him. I'm not taking anything away from him. I'M NOT GONNA fight. The decision is not. It's not worth. It was close enough where I can't complain but that being said Dan thinks he won the fight he talked about it on on different interviews. And I feel like I wanNA fight like you said I feel I did enough around to. I think dominated the striking here my back for like a second did nothing with it And then four and five the championship. The later rounds turned it up handed. Better Cardio and I feel like I put a stamp on and actually I lost on one. Judge's scorecards took away round five because of that. Take Down but we talked about current rules a takedown with zero damaging zero positional changes. You know we were scrambling. There was never any real dominant moment and I got back up to my feet now. Granted not an an amazing position but no damage was done so you look at the rest of the round for that. I thought I'd done enough lost lots of money but I got the bonus. I mean that made things a lot better obviously than Jimmy. My show purse but it was still an amazing experience like going go in there. Walk through that crowd in the. Us lazing on the radio. I WANNA ask you about data. Actually the walkway because it is was. Obviously you know. Ground control to Major Tom. Tom Was your dad. Your late father and then went into to born in the USA was not all linked towards your dot. Definitely the space oddity was all for my dad and I just knew that that that would get me in the right head spot you know. I got his ashes like with my team and then I just wanted to come out to something for us for the USA. It's like Bam over in this guy's backyard and all these people are so gung Ho about New Zealand in Auckland and being representing their country. I felt like I was doing mine a disservice dividing come out there and kind of rapid a little bit and it got me pump man to come out to that song which screaming. Kiwis my face. It was like it was raw. It was it was one of those spine tingling moments to one of my favorite songs. You Know I love Bruce Springsteen as well and I have to ask before we moved on a bit and all you feel. I don't know how you feel about this. Maybe you start fights a little bit too slow. Do you feel. It's an issue because you always seem to come into fights in the late second round third. You seem to be at you. Sort of your your peak. Yeah I don't know why right and that's one of the things we really worked on two and I was doing really well in sparring. I was getting my game plan going right away which is to be aggressive as you guys saw which was to get his face closed distance. Try to work the body. Dan Did a really good job of evading. I did a really poor job in the beginning of following him right not yell about two fighters all the time when commentating so I can take myself out of the equation when I wash it and see that I thought I was cutting him off in the moment but I see them. Leaving so much octagon space. Once I started bridging that gap and you can see Duke Genius. He's all over that he's a big steps to your left big steps to your left. He's he's escaping outside by that point. I'd already given up the first around you know and I was like Goddamn and here. We go but I won the second. I gotta I gotTa work on that. You know when I come back when that big fight comes up which Philip. Ufc's going to give something something cool to get me back in there. We'll talk Donna moment and I have a few suggestions to throw your way. You mentioned retirement. Paul said there. You're looking for the big fight. The main events the five rangers is that the only reason our only chance we'll see if you competing in the octagon again. Yeah Man I think so I think at this point. It's gotta be something exciting right. And I'm not saying that maybe deserving of of a million of those but if you're if you're going to get me back I feel like I'm willing to wait around for a little bit. I mean no. Russia took some good damage fighters and five round decisions and so obviously Dublin is not my reach out and said that the Dukes made pretty clear that we'd love that desperately quick turnaround for me but for that for that card. I would love to do it man. I you know to go and find Ireland Would just be so much fun dude. Obviously I'm the Irish Dragon. I've gotTA ancestry going back to them I could. I could sit here and get my uncle mark back on and tell you every lineage in town where we're from and all that kind of nonsense even though some people think. I'm just a we'll do that. We'll do that. Yeah I was GonNa ask you dot Conor McGregor put open instagram post. He said fellers German. You stupid Twat White. Why is Connor McGregor constantly in your ear? Like he said obviously after his fight against Donald cerrone. Now again what? What did you make of that jolly on on Instagram? I just think he's aware of the division you know. I think he's he. He Co he comes after anybody he puts feelers out on on anything you know. He's he's He's a businessman in that way where he wants to be. Alpha dog right. That's his way of Of kind of being the boss right making comments to to anybody and everybody. I don't think it means meant too much. You deleted it afterwards and I didn't realize that. Yeah I didn't jump on that date because it was literally I had just gotten out of the sauna cut like seven pounds. We were close to weigh INS. I was GONNA lay down until we had to go and cut the last half pound so it was like as exciting is that is that. Have you know one of the biggest stars kind of call you a slot on them? I didn't WanNa make the mistake that so many people would have of of addressing that right then and there and taking any respect away from Dan Hooker who obviously deserved every bit of my attention for that definitely not fair enough and I've gotta ask you as well. The injuries of see this long list again. You got pretty badly beaten up and I believe there was an issue. Your I your Shane and your liver as well. You spoke in the base. How SERIOUS WALLS? All that the eye. There's there's a couple little orbital floor fractures which happened quite more often than A lot of the casual fans probably know about anytime. We're breaking windows and stuff a lot of times you get the orbital floor mall bone Seco- under your eye. They're like eggshells. They practice often so the way. Everything's looking right now. It looks like I won't need any kind of plates or surgery. Everything will heal on its own. It's it'll be like an eight week. No contact a type of situation. My ankle is still really sore just because of the calf kicks in and kicking him. My feet always swell after fights and traveling so you know and then you go and eat thousand dollars worth of But other than that. I'm good I had a little crazy scare with some some Rondo. Which is like a kid can be like overexertion to the Kennedys. Thing the kidneys. 'cause it's your your muscles start breaking down and producing this stuff that gets in your blood and your kidneys worked at filtered out loud. How serious that sounds really serious? It can be really serious but luckily it was right after the fight knows in the emergency room so the way you get rid of it as you just you have to hydrate in rest. Like maniacs basically was put on like five bags of IV's throughout the twenty four hours that it was in the hospital do they on e. series implications not had no as long as Mike date. They were checking my kidney function the whole time. They kept taking my blood to see if it was going down. And that's why. They eventually released me because they flushed in enough or my kidneys were operating. I stay hydrated. I've been staying hydrated since I left. The hospital haven't really been drinking too much or anything like that because obviously I was worried about my kidney. So that was the only problem with getting done a huge fight and wanting to drink beers. It was like. Oh wait on that without a knock on affected anywhere else in your body if obviously if you're swelled up after a fight around like Don. Your kidneys aren't functioning. That was there where he was letting me go out there. And having this stuff still affecting kidneys but once I was showing that everything was hitting operational and functioning was my in. My urine was completely clear. By the time I was leaving there and declared up. Some people think that it was during my my weight cut. I didn't have a dorm. I wake out ahead coast fight so from the exertion of the fight in. They were worried that it could have been from my calf getting a compartment syndrome. Which is when you see. The swelling is too much for your body to be able to handle and what happens is if it swells past what it can handle it. Will your body will actually just start strangulating muscles to see swelling in which go kill the muscle Into body so so that could be of your flag while yeah one of the ways they deal with it. Is They actually slice? Open your muscles in giant slices to relieve the tension and then sold them back up when the inflammation goes down. And I didn't want that at all as you can imagine elevating icing at lake crazy. And they didn't they didn't think I had it but they wanted to keep me overnight to to monitor that because any time that you get that that that that stuff going into your kidneys they they were thinking that it could also be from compartment syndrome but it looked like it was more like a a wrapped type just over exertion breakdown my muscles naturally from that as opposed to like one Serious so I didn't end up compartments. Thankfully what I have to ask you this as well. You know had bodies to calm down after week. You know win lose or draw. It's something people don't often think about when they speak to fighters regular basis or you know any sort of funds looking on at the sport it must be very very difficult regardless of the results. Ta It's tough man. You must get this And all the fighters kind of talk to each other. They know how you feel and this is even if you won a Lotta Times over there. Hey Hey hold not. It's so so much and so much raw emotion and relief and stress in excitement. And then it's over writing now about the pay per view this weekend. It's you're kind of Your old news very quickly in the sport of mixed martial art spot second getting pretty good at that and I like I. I love the attention. I love being them on. It's over I go back to to Philly out just outside of the city in my little town house with my daughter in my family. It's like I'm just kicking it on the couch. You know so. I've learned to kind of be really low. Key went up in the spotlight. Obviously you know we hope that doesn't prolong too often does prolong. Sometimes it can like. I've had them where they they really liked. The Mike Perry fight with a broken arm just when you have constant reminders with a long injury with James Vick. Those ones are tougher to overcome. But at least this already like my face is healing up my leg feeling on walking around you know so. I feel like I'm Gonna I'M GONNA move on much quicker from this one and it was. I did my job man. You know like my biggest concern with that was getting this main event having UFC. Finally Trust. Dana White Sean Shelby. Giving me is opportunity to. I've been begging for and then the fear as you get closer and closer to what if I shit the bed you know. What if I go out to Dan? Khokar knocks me out thirty seconds and we see it happened right to the best guys in the world. It's just that's just a reality and that's a wears on you the whole time. No matter how prepared you are no matter how good you are you. Just you don't want to blow it and sometimes we do. You see I tell you what you you certainly didn't that's going to be you know th there's very good You know if if someone knocks offer fight year for me it was an incredible display from both yourself and johnstone like certainly didn't shit the madden not occasion so in that in that regard. I'm happy and I feel like I get enough to win the fight but I left it close enough where way so. I can't really do too much complain about it. You know it's just it sucks I. I would a different position if I'd won that fight but I feel like to win my did enough to prove that you know yet to win and a but I feel like a guaranteed myself at least another chance to have another main event spot from agree too tired Tony Great. And what did they say? The you spoken to him. Or Sean Schaub your mic main art or anyone directly. I am talking directly to Dana yet but I did talk to Sean right after the fight. He's first thing he said is. Don't go retiring on me right. After the fight we talked about the fighting to how much he loved it and I asked him you know before they announced Yeah like the no brainer for that. And then he sent me a really nice text message just you know. I want to any of the details but not pushing me one way or the other just thanking me for what had happened and you know if I decide to be a dad and hang it up than supports me. But that he's got some interesting things that he's GonNa WanNa be calling me about in the future and you pick up. That call said he said we mentioned at USC Dublin. The online trucks will was absolutely huge am loads of Irish a lot of our listeners here in Europe wash the general team and I think ninety percent of the people you've talked about. Ufc Dublin have mentioned one name and more name only to headline that event. And that is you Paul Fowler. What would that mean to you to fight in front of de loudest crowds in the world? Here in Dillon. I feel like that's one of those bucket lists things that I gotta check off now. You know I've I've invaded all these countries where everybody's out to Tammy lose Be Nice to go to one where I feel like. I got a lot of support in a lot of fan base to to go there and rock that house over in Dublin. Man and Maybe rocks green shorts. For that one would be a dream come true for sure. Mandate statistics smell the beer spill. Place would be out of control. 'cause Duke is is so so keen for it to happen due. Be In a group text message. You making sure you're you came on and and did everything possible in your parents to get opposition on the cart. They don't come along every day. We know that we haven't had a UFC and five years. You Sat to book lists moment. Would it be an emotional? Mommy you know could be the one where you you know. Maybe be fighting Dan. Maybe walk away from the sport. Would you look at it as something like that? I don't know I feel like after the energy of fighting in Dublin. It would just make me WanNa keep on fighting especially if I can get another win. Then you know as long as we're moving up the ladder progressing and making money and staying in the top ten the top five you know. That's that's what's keeping me around if I ever feel like I'm becoming a journeyman or I'm I'm fighting the guys on the lower rungs and they're kind of working the out batsman. I'll retire when I feel like I'm not the the marquee you know what I mean when I'm feeling I'm not the guy selling the fight them then it's time to be done. Listen you've changed your no where near by what. You're what you're saying here. I just I just need some donuts and a couple of beers and then get a little fat and start shaming myself and then shaming myself. I start working hard and then I wanNA fight. Nabi counting my manager nonstop to to let me know what's next. That's usually how it works more. I'm always thinking these things after a loss. I you know it was the main event I got to speak after the fights emotional so a lot of stuff came out. That's that's kind of always on my mind anyway as almost thirty six year old athlete. Who's taken some big injuries? I feel like we're all always wondering you know when when is the last one. I don't think you realize hey popular you are in art under is fair to say. Yuck as you say that to me and then you know the only times I really see too much stuff is is whenever connor says something and then get all his and other negativities so I feel like unfortunately the real supporters over there. You get kind of washed away by the haters. Do US favors. Dot Com in Belfast. We're very very gracious with your time with a lot of the founding. A lot of people sort of warmed the imbalance Boston now. I think you're beers for everyone at the bar and Balfaas but listen to me you know. That's something I think everyone here would love to see Paula Fowler and A and a headline event and Dolan definitely. And because we don't have any you know too many names here in the UFC at the moment are GonNa ask it. You know what Christine said. What has the Duke said about? You continue fighting. Do they still do Do they want you to fight on? What's what's their feelings. Everybody in my life at this point is okay with either either way. My mom probably more. Okay with me. Hang it up than anybody else obviously. Obviously my coaches think. I still have a lot left. Duke is more pissed off than anybody. I know about about this fight. He HE'S UPSET. He's he thinks you know we. We pulled it off and we had a great performance as well as I do But that's my coaches job right. He's got my back. They're they're they're getting pissed off for me so I can just kind of let it be what it is but I'd say the majority of people don't don't think that I'm that I'm done. Well do you think that you're doing I know I know you're gonNA say this once? A fighter does start mentioned retirement a lot of times. You sort of go. You know. Maybe maybe he should retire. No Yeah of course but I think it depends on what kind of performances that that athletes putting on right. I feel like the beginning knocked out multiple times in a row. And you're starting to talk about retirement. You should most definitely retire. I mean we're talking. I was coming off a win streak and arguably won the fight in a five round main event. It's like well. It could be a little premature but in the moment I was just upset of disappointed and I miss. I miss my daughter. I wanted to get home and you know I I kinda got caught up in that that limelight. A little bit wore my for my emotions on my sleeve a little too much. I think you know we. We did speak about this off air before we came on. I think people sometimes. It's very easy to forget what you guys go through in the journey before the fight getting there. You know I'm in regular contact with you. Know which way if Dacoit it's it's it's not a three month process. It's a three-month bloody diet. Where you've to eat very very sensibly carefully is that's something. Maybe you feel as though the funds would I maybe media in general. Just take that on board when they're speaking of guys that go through a lot huge for our for our entertainment effectively especially the guys that cut significant weight. You know. It's a is not only do. I have to train needle Most days five days five days a week are trained three times a day event once or twice on on Saturday but It's it's a bit man. It's a whole two two plus month diet where I'm not I'm not cheating and you've seen these meals like every day. It's not like on Saturday. I'm like I I died it really good this week. I'm going to have a couple of cheap meals. It's like no. There's a cheat meal to me would be like if I let myself have a tablespoon Tina butter that I wasn't supposed to have in my macro sat day. I'll be wearing that shit in the morning. You know what I mean. I'll be looking even more muscular in the morning because I went to many carbs before. And it's just. It's it's a science project to do it. Where I feel healthy in this way was miraculously alario state did a great job great but even then the day of Wayans I still cut seven and a half pounds but it was a Friday night way and so I woke up and I had yeah it was like seven a little over seven pounds cut so it wasn't wasn't like oh it's such a good way cutting only cut a couple pounds. It was like I and then I still cut six and a half or whatever it was and then I thought it would float the rest on the way to the winds I still had to get to the sonnet at the hotel and cut half a pound so it was like doesn't in future. I'm going to give you a bit more leeway when you're grumpy is focusing in the buildup to fight. We came because I know I hope it is for you guys and we do appreciate what you guys do. Listen to me just a couple more for allegedly GONNA do appreciate the time as always ball or what is next to it is their name their ally know you've mentioned he's mentioned you and there's a whole host of names and not one hundred and fifty division. I'm assuming you want to get on that. Dublin Card as you said is all. I came to the demand. That is your table. Yeah I liked that fight right. That fight was supposed to happen. I know do go onto rematch. I would like that too but I don't see that happening. I think obviously the way that the US is going to go. Dan Did get the win and it was all square. So I feel like he's GONNA end up fighting. Pouria and a deadly tonner. At and cowboy above me upset fighting cowboy. I don't see Gaijin wanting that fight especially if I'm coming off the law so it really limits what I'm I'm obviously. I want those big names but I don't see myself getting those bigger names. Just because that's to sell the cookie crumbles in the sport and ALCOM right out and said you know He. He wanted to fight and I feel like that's a fight. That gets me excited. Just because that's something the fans of wanted he brings hammer single time. I bring you give us a main event somewhere. We're going to let you mean what do you mean come on? Yeah exactly you you keep pushing for it. I want it. I'll take it but we'll see what happens right Paul. Listen I'm it's always a pleasure to speak to you and I appreciate the time and I know it's a tough week for you and said you know wonderful and if you do decide to call a day I it doesn't seem like you are. It's been an obscene pleasure. I always appreciate the time my friend. Don't thanks for having me man? You Know I. It was time to you bro. Always a pleasure to wear how Paul felder on the show that Gano say yes is that that's how you say yours dragon focusing on talk. That was very impressive. What at night. It's you know. I think we have to sort of mentioned the online traction on weight behind the fans support for Paul Evan. Coming off a loss. I think everyone like did you. See the postpone. Ufc Dolan. I'm Jay trip. Dolan San demand attraction on an Irish found actually comes and I'm not saying we want you to head on the headline we want you to headline. It's just ordering crates against as soon as they see this. Jesus Christ across the road last night for a few jars and even the the Barman. He wouldn't be mild into. Ufc The owner. He's GonNa Fight. It was unbelievable what Paul down. He watches online and legally. I hope but it was. It was an incredible fight. And you know if Paul's CNN retire and listen to me he's had a fantastic career. And these I'll tell you what one hopes. Sonofabitch let's take talk about this APP area Awani reporting last week that McGregor engaged in preliminary talks for Dana. Way Still seems to be keen on the no made off seems weird with them fighting in April right. How do you feel about it? Do you like the gate you know. I think it's a big risk for connor on his stock if he is to go in and fight gay. Ci and lose the voicemail tank. And we're more like C CONNOR. One hundred and seventy pounds on. Taylor rematch are potential rematch against Habib Hopkins? Obviously if Tony Wins. I think they'll do connor. Tony but I just don't see I think there's often to lose if he if he one hundred and fifty even loses you know he's not going to get the title shot if he loses to gauge on seventy commoner was awesome for seventy Arab. Yeah straight after this only for I mean. I don't see the problem with like I mean they're gonNA give him a toilet for when they want to anyway. You know like the gate. You won't Oh no absolutely not board. Am I think? Is it a more winnable in the legs of Mas Vidal who was pushed around a lot in the in the immediate aftermath? Aronie before hunt. I'm here I'm here. Mcgregor saying this is a perfect metro for Connor. I'm here engaged. This is a perfect much. I agree that has me branded. Iran Lop Volkan is less. Just think he's he's Outta stage. Were away I mean in terms of two boys to animals that the toffler dudes who are savage stroker's I mean it would be a tabby fall you put like. I'm just thanking team. Which lose for CONARD air in terms of going forward for a big money fight like let's be honest. I think if obviously if Habibie Tony Ferguson. That's going to be the biggest ever in the amount of people that are going to tune in for. I think that's going to break any records in terms of Abraham says no no have even connor if rematch does happen if they can get over. Tony you know. I think a lot of people are writing off Tony. It's just it's just. It's very bizarre that you can cost. You can understand what people are lake. Favoring their magamatet based on what he's doing he's going to beat him up you and Sean I'll shoddy have been sticking by these for a long time but what I wanted to say was and what did you want to say to me. The M the fact that you're saying like money etc. I think the ceremony for prove that condos reading need to a select few people to make money. I mean if he's making if he's clearing a million pay-per-view is with ESPN thing in place against their own. I think he does a million again. I think there was a difference with with Surani fight. I think even by concerned yeah people wanted to see Connor. Back is is just a controversial book. And I don't know if you're going to get out against you. Know the likes jost engaged or someone like that people just might have passed and casual inch. Astronauts go ahead and purchase the pay per view. If if I wasn't a toilet would be gauged. Look I mean he is Roy. Tara feel yeah no. I agree with you totally. So we beating him like I mean. There's no arguments. Yeah but I still down now. If he's going to you would not be surprised. If we like I-IT's jozy Robinson cotton wool. My whole thing is along the lines and I think if he goes to one. Seventy seven leaves one seventy. There's no stock lost. I won't fifty five right so but the problem is right if they want him fighting in summer. Habib's not gonNA point this summer so I think it's more bandelier timbre. Yeah he's not GonNa fight six times in the year like you said he is anyway. We know that's not gonNA happen. You know what I mean so three times. Yeah so yeah. I think we'd be lucky to get connor into this year. Not Crazy for me not crazy but I think I realistically wants more. Margate G. and then in September October or November. I tell you what's happened. Oestmann is gone very quiet on this whole potential match against Mosleh. No has done not sort of died down Peter yet. Well it gets more holding with. That was Dana White. Said you know what Steph happened in. The summer was like all right. I forgot all just like the more you know. I would not be surprised if connor got wants to go out. There has been fighting the summer really for the talk. Like you think if you think if you think of what I would do for him you know. Connor loves chasing revolver. Said this you know He. He talked about. Donald ceremony. Meant A had kicked Katie. Heiden for him to do this. Thing was the first time ever. Donald was finished not monitor and you believe if he loses to one seventy dollars combined for fifty four exactly. That's one hundred percent my point and I think if you look the void as well as beef there between those two you know connor whole tweets it and I was. He said he stay. Because when you're sitting cage so after Donald and there's a bit of Shit therapy with the agent as well Elliott Says No love there and just think if he was to go in and win that one hundred seventy pounds title. Imagine haunting savvy champion against one hundred fifty champion. It would be some story for the end of the year. Is that what you do? If you're still what I do from the AFC. I think it just adds more stock to walk. Connor is already now. It's interesting. I'm happy over the age group. That is an interesting. Take whatever they talk about those aloe getting dropped in ahead of our book about it and I mean look right. I've talked about this a bit with their Casey Lloyd. Jose Jones or understand the host of the every Wednesday six pm but the thing is your marriage void in Israel out of scientists weekend era has lost two fights but there is no other pairs. Eighty-four where everyone's like he should be fighting for the toil. This ridiculous gentlemen like what? Why isn't this going to toil Yanni Algebra or you just don't feel like more of Talk Radio? I just don't feel like they do it unless they're going to sale on. May in. May you know. Listen I I would like to see Peter Yama Chef. I think he basically decided what he wanted to do. Against Roy Faber ironic given moment. It was like keeps telling what you'RE I. Yeah but I. I didn't really expect it to be in the Monitor. Which had the stomach empowered all right. That was percents. For what what it comes down again as well with the UFC. And maybe you haven't thought about this but I certainly thought about it and you know. Maybe it's the the English language. Maybe that's why they're holding his pushback. He has done very well. We've been knows and he's he's getting better. Yeah sentences in the space of a year when you're also competing four times the UFC. I imagine that it's similar. Would Habib Habib did not get that initial push until he learned the language of English? Like that's I think that's pretty fair to say like he was gradually fucking healy. And then it was like Darrell horror. All these sort. That could definitely be alone at all with the six more months to get a better grasp of the language and and to me that is true. I think Jose County just. He's not he's just not Irish. It does make sense. It was like Anderson. Let me let Suarez talk from because he just called before guitarist awesome quest- questions that's basically listen in fairness to Jose he did beat Martin like I don't know how anyone scored fight from Arima Rice. Joe's I wanNA for me so I'm not totally over to him but I think there's a lot of times while he's Yong is fighting all over to build a bigger fight than point. Henry sued over the belt. Say Yeah it'd be like I mean because he does need floyd again established names although pseudo on a great job of making himself a bigger name. He's an idiot. Oh look look you say it is and then you don't understand don't understand people against I know he's a cat. Get you got a crash. That's go to a man who nobody has really ever describes a dickhead. I'm sure Joseph. Don't WanNA noises man in the world. We have not seen for a long time since last March believe was much. Y- 'EM so we're going to have a word with Joe seems to be the theme of this week's episode is that they're all Wanna get on this stolen guy but very interested in with Joe because he had been in the slop spot before against Dustin Poirier. It seemed like the world was opening up in front of Joseph Dove even foresee that injury. Dan and Noel Talk to Him Mary this week. And we're going to hear from JOE and we'll be back to talk about what happened last weekend. It's been a wireless since I've spoken caught with them all the way there Montreal in Canada and I think the last was this time last year and UFC. Loan are coming up to when he dropped a decision against Marci Casey. It is the wonderful on charming. Mr Joseph Delfi shelves of Harry. My friends Always pays African in Montreal. Believe you're at you're snowed in our Jesus Snow here nine all all other in that second shoveling shoveling lots of Caccia upon a lot of people obviously talking about you this week after the announcements and I think it was by ten days of. Ufc d'hollander they're eager to know. Where Mr Joseph Daul? Fay's what what's being on a kind of JOE NOT A PILOT PILOT. You know Obviously recovering from a prolonged injury. And just trying to get back into the groove of thing you know Starting to feel good. I've been able to put some consistent trend and now and things are clicking back into place so I'm excited to get back. I don't know if you WANNA talk about it but what. What was the injury? What was what was the issues. And I know you've been obviously Notre Gillette a bit and it's been kind of frustrating for you in terms of not being able to to really go out in the gym. Does it had the rib injury that I injured. I think it was. Let me see November twenty twenty eighteen hours men to fight in Australia. And the re put me out and it's just been kind of dragging on since so Like every time If I got help netted it would die. Put back to square one. Rest limousine issue grap limousine issue short movements on that. I just find that like start training. Then we'll get injured star training and I just felt like I was digging myself the whole time you know. I couldn't couldn't get consistent So when to the PI? Heather was walking on me day. You know the. She's one of the Hetero credible incredible She's always she's always great to And she gave me a bit advice. Focus on prolotherapy and on the helped and you'll I'm just trying to trains Martin and Dan and so far so good soya if it keeps going this way great did did it affect you there against Marci Casey. Because I'm going to be honest. You know I thought it was very underwhelming performance from you and on your a long way away probably from your best foot. It was a very underwhelming performance. That's for sure. Like a Daphne boys myself in there like I'm not I'm not somebody who likes to blame yet or lame injuries Like marks game plan was great. You know we came out to eat. Took took my leg away so I think that played a big part too but in terms of camp it it didn't help injured that Maybe five weeks before the fight so I couldn't I couldn't do lifelock. You know wrestling. Or STRIKING SPARRING OR NOTHING. You know is just a kiss. A pod working on condition Unlike said like I'm I'm not blaming us in. That's the reason I lost booker's marked him over to good game plan. But maybe that's why my timers little bit Flick a felt like I was seeing the shots. But like I wasn't reacting. Well Harry Joseph is good now and are you looking to get back in there. Yeah everything's great like said I've been I've been getting some consistent trend than like my weight's good and I'm happy to be back in the gym. Which is which is always a big positive So without like suggesting that Ireland card like my eyes lit up Booker's after After getting pulled from the last one something that's really haunted mean old like Like just WanNa get that that fight on on home soil especially Dublin S it was a landmark event. We'll we'll talk about that more seconds. Got Obviously ask as well. You've become a Dodson stand you Laura. I know your lives changed. Obviously a drastic amount. You've you've been on tax and you you want twenty more. But listen to me does your. Does your perspective change. Once a kid comes into the mix as well is operatives say often speak Paul Fowler and on a lot of the other loud who kids on the teams to sort of matter. The mayor bit in terms of you know they're fighting career Daphne changes Obviously your priorities change too like Like I like pretty much since I was a kid like I remember teenage years fighting. I was obsessed with us. All the Dung was trained. I think Roy too much like Ca. I was just always in the gym and more and more serious as as As I stepped up in level so You'll win when a kid comes on the scene like a a. Kinda fighting no longer becomes your your priority. No which is Which is something. That was strange for me. Definitely Daphne. And she's very cute kit as well very. Maybe she's not. I don't know where she got that. From Joe's I keep an eye on the mailman quantity quality quality. Joseph have to ask you ever see you. You mentioned there yourself and that's haunted you am. I remember speaking to you in Dublin. Literally moments after the announcement was made and you know it was a terrible weekend to see you so upset so sort of listless. I think going around Dublin. The three rain on you know how much fight obviously Mandy at the time told me more about dot is redemption coming back and actually fighting in the three Reno under the. Us's Boehner and writing. Those wrongs that happened. That's part of it because if I did all of the Like MSG or the O. Two like these these can a landmark arenas but but it doesn't doesn't compare you know firefighting on home soil here in the crowd on that night and no-one knew it would have been my main event and under the. Us's banner on the on oversee a quality opponent you know against Dustin Pari. It was filed the people who is excited for a fight. I was excited for so so without Like right them wrongs and and you know I would do anything to get on that card. You know I like I just I wanNA WANNA fight on the UFC in Ireland. And I wanna I just WanNa feel atmosphere because you know Watson from the crowd it was. It was incredible but heartbreaking at the same time because I felt like I should be in the octagon feeling this. You know I feel an analogy knowing you you know considerably over the years and you know Taxdeal quite regularly and we speak quite a loss. I feel as though maybe this is really sort of led a lawyer. Let them smoke. It's really sort of maybe rejuvenated she to appoint the end of this car. That you really just want to go. You just really WANNA blow to get back in. There has lit fire in your belly without a doubt you know just like I said like to right that wrong and I'm just feel atmosphere on something to be excited about like like how can I know be excited about that event that show in Ireland especially after going through fight week thinking I was fighting it and then you know to get the news on the Wednesday night on pretty much Camp IT WAS. It was a very empty feeling on whereas now like like. I kinda got a chance to feel again but actually for it to happen you know. Obviously it's a long way. It's a number months. Yes But I have to ask you this one as well. You're obviously dominant. Samay owner Ali Abdel Aziz his management team. Do you think being rally being his management's puts you in a strong position to get a prominent position on this card. I hope so you know. Ali Ali's incredible like Just if you spend the day with them and you see oh hardy works for his fighters than I think. It would change Gillette opinions so a lot of people's opinion because he really really does work so hard for fighter jets and I'm really despite them regardless win. Lose or draw he's he's in their corner I'm like a soon as I seen an announcement I ali to to try and get on the car and I'm sure he'll do everything in his power to give me on there. Have you heard on the from? Ali is any word from the USCCA. Potentially having you on this car because we know you know obviously we go Pala Conor McGregor. But he's not gonNA fight and Dublin on. I think that's pretty much fair to say. Be a big surprise if he was to fight in Dublin. You know we need guys from this country on this card. In my opinion it's always team with the European shows. Have you heard back from from Dana? White? Sean Shabby the potential on this card. No haven't heard back Obviously like a wheel to care that side of things You know but Like like like I said I contacted him and told them like how. How much really WANNA be on this card? So I'm sure I'm sure he's taking care of that side of things just like I said just seeing them walk in just one day like I can imagine these already been onto them and and they're probably discussing options and so on Josefino. You're onto skates on on. Everyone knows your ability. And how much of a mixed martial artists? Obviously you're supposed to headline and the three arena before. Do you feel like that is a realistic possibility that you may headline even this event. I don't always the truth that that's my answer especially like having lost my last two like whether whether the Allama big enough draw you know. Obviously there's some exciting fights put on that a you know like I feel like I'm an exciting fighter and they put me the put me on the card against against a good exciting name. Then then we'll put on a great show regardless no you're not want to call eight fighters who are those exciting names. You think you'd be you'd be macho well against there's lots of exciting like you look at the light division. How many just exciting strikers there is like there's Indus. I know I know on twitter. A look just from speaking with you. The minded people less dust been saying about me and Paul on Paul Fowler. Yeah and that That well you told me. Yeah it was it was a fight the UFC. We're talking about doing if you got over and against the helmet in on a European card here potentially so. Do you feel as though that's something they could possibly run by? Paul in fairness to Paul hasn't really addressed what he's doing with his career yet he he's told me he's only interested. In taking five rains events on fights that only excite them and I'm sure and UFC doppler main event would excite him. And I think he tweeted something in relation to that as well. Debt like Like I wasn't aware that they were trying to make that fight back then You know so so maybe is to. Maybe maybe this is not. I'm not sure but if something that made sense to Paul something made sense the UFC As a main event obviously the funds you know for mid sense of the funds and of course you know like a step up on on as I'm sure Paul would you know obviously like you said I am honored to fight so I'm a bit down the down. The pecking order. But one thing one thing I can assure is that like outcome to fight and that Then we'll put on a good show. I've gotta ask you and I mentioned names and I know you're doesn't watch an awful lot of mixed martial arts because you're always in the gym yourself but Dino we talk about Irish guy. He's an Irish guy. He's in the car right. And there's there's only you know yourself from connor that are actually signs the UFC from You know the Republic of Ireland at the moment dealers though the the UFC. And I know you know if you guys in this scene here of the being being around for a long time do you feel are the UFC are gonNA make more signings at local signings. I think so I think especially you watching cage wars and see in seeing their pushback back on Ireland to You know there's a couple of guys there who could be signed for sure like Mckee is is flying like is is last performance. You know to to stop a guy pretty much where the job on friend. Marissa's bar res Nullius. Just high level is You know I I definitely think he's ready. He's ready for the UFC. And I think Obviously after aftercare to ours in Belfast. All Damn wild which which. I'm sure we'll be sure that the he'll get the Sharpton and he'll be on that card to you know I don't know what you guys in Tristar in Farrah's in yourself and you guys always get on very well. Have you seen this game you know? How far do you think he can go? Because there's a lot of parents in Ireland at res over the years and I think more obviously now with this sort of spotlight on La Cage Warriors Card ahead of UFC Dolan I'm not sure is the truth like a like. He always had great striking anyway. I witnessed firsthand despite the movie was very good It's actually something I feel. I should of like somebody. I should've tried to bring out for the VIC. Because he had such such good strike in at a nice range. You know he would have been the perfect the perfect sparring partner for for the big fight. just you know seen him you use a professional you know. When he came out there was no there was no mass around like he came to train the news working hard all time as as I'm sure he is not a storm sure. He's made made huge improvements in this game so Joseph Pushes four let you go and I do appreciate the time as always my friends and so you're you're expecting to get on. This car is basically the bottom line and reached out to Ali. Are you a hundred percent? Sure you're GONNA be on this car because all thirty believe that You deserve it on your show Biana. Obviously it's a no-brainer from the point of view. We've seen all the traction on twitter people talking about yourself and Paul and plenty of other fights but the people want you on this card and it. It's a no brainer right. Well I like to think so Obviously like like you said there's not many many of us from Ireland Afc at the minute so I'M NOT GONNA save for sure because I don't make them decisions you know it's up to us up to Sean and Dana them guys who you know what makes sense for the card but the firstly. I think make sense. I'm hoping I can. I can just be on there and be a part of that car then Obviously you know. Keep keep pushing. Irish chairman may forward. Daphne I think in a great place the moment and then you'd be a no brainer in my opinion to have an prominent position on that car. This joe go enjoy the snow. Go enjoy change the NAPIS. It's always a pleasure to speak to and I'm looking forward to hopefully senior hair in August further stolen car on a prominent position on that flight. Appreciate it and there was no flyweight. Champion crowned this weekend because Davis and Figueredo did not make weight am Joseph Benavente as did make ways but unfortunately it did not always way and I felt he's just curse he's never been part of Joseph Benefit as after this for you because he is very well liked it the community. I don't read what. Yeah now he's just a bit rude to one of our colleagues before it immediately. I found that very strange to tell he's just basically said don't call me name is Joseph so when you're acting like that Andrew Call. It was to our good friend from Manchester on. That's all I'll say. Oh sorry. Come on ECON. He doesn't like John. And Joseph of you know he's Fella I think he's been very very man and there's only one noise Joseph in the US. Talk to Joe. Yeah look it seemed like there was a clash of heads at Roy Cross and it was all over and total phone for Joey. Tofu flyweight division more and more. It's a tremendous isn't it to disaster like Figueroa obviously missing way for the first one was Colorado at that was figuring radio missing way for the first time in his career in probably the most biggest deal ever of a Dana Weeping League straightaway this profession. It is you can't say any more than on on days. That was the sort of going shit. You know it's going to happen now. There's no way Jos have benefited as it's going to not fight. The flights are karst. That's that's pretty much for me and the division is on its way. Oh that's the fourth nail in the coffin. Yeah like what? What what what disaster. It's a disaster on. Yeah I just don't see a way back for the flyweights now. I really don't. It's unfortunate but I think that's what Dana is going to be taken as well especially after Friday sleaziest spencer absolutely dominated Zara. Fern am from France. One-sided as gets and people are going to bait and like if there's one forty five toil is still active will be making rankings are Megan. Artists Unbeaten Norm Dumont earlier in the M whatever we cross. Ko She got so he. Would you put in? I'll put him for the easier to be honest. One of the first. I don't like I. I think it's hard to really get invested in this division. Not Know People not enough people in there is not even a ranking on the UFC dot com pages. Just am obviously demanded known as I don't know it's one of these things to shit or get off the pot with the federal way division. It looks more likely to me that they're getting off the pardon avenue because it's it's not happening like it isn't son and I I just this me off because we we constantly go round in circles and sustain with the flyweights as bad as we were saying air like. It's you know. What are you doing eating put together a plan instead of just sort of taken the bear and not do not in a better? It's it's just bonkers. Make it a serious analogies from the series of analogies am focused. Let's talk about Michael Ed Ankle off on on Q. Does it very differing opinions? It's a messy. It's a mess. There's no doubt about it the mess and it's a tricky stoppage. Look you. You don't agree with the stuff because he didn't. He kicked him three times in the head. But he's he's he's blocked every every shadow them. It's SORTA hit his hands on the referees referees job not to to see that like was he hurt. But that's what I what I don't understand you. I know you think it's different because well I think if I'm if I'm putting myself on the referees us there I look like mean. I don't think this is perfect in any way but criticized the referee for looking around Goi. That's as far as he knows. He's like he's rocked. He looks rocked. He's vs he's waddling all over the place and he continues to wobble usually. You're waiting for to regain senses. He he looks as bod from when he gets here or whatever happened. The head kick he starts wobbling he's throws view digs. He's still wobbling. He doesn't look like he's recovered at all looked at stoppage. Could've came earlier. Like if you're just GONNA STOP. It from a fellow wobbling like that. The referee has to has to step in there. If he thinks is they wanNA feed late that he has to protect them. If Cute Alaba did this and that he did say afterwards it was game planets Cetera. Make sure you talk to the right before you go in and you say look mate as soon as I eat shots here. I'm going to put on a front to make this exchange me. There's just so many idiotic as I say to you wait here. Is We've been grappling match number ten of the top then them stop in the foyer. And you're like Oh sorry mate. Don't stop in the fight against your points. Should the Raffray maybe not be more clued in? And what actually seeing where the connection was made. No Y- you're also dealing with split seconds. They're like I'm sure I'm sure the goal is often don't see the punched. Has the fellow followed? Concentrate on don't connection. But like I listen to John McCarthy Big John McCarthy podcast forced time ever today just taken it and he goes. The referee should know he was. I think sorry. I use the focus of Kademi. I use the Hollywood foreign press as referees. All you're going to be dealing with brain damage. That's what you're looking over to say. This should know of acting or not acting. That's way beyond dot dot is a bit wild so that's just what we feel about. Look again again when people are like. Oh I didn't vote to stop and look after. Only on Cubed Alaba saying that yeah it could've he can't say. Get Rid as referees. Never work again look of seeing dickhead sign online. Because he's stopping that he thinks has been rattled by taking me. Last week we're talking about. Caroline being raised the focus of your. Get your take on it. Yeah it's messy though. I'm not trying to say Matthew Watts doing to rematch. What the I guess you have to re much. Sonia Boredom I don. I feel like the referee. I don't think he's got a hell there. I think it's a messy messy messy result but yeah no. You SORTA persuaded me a bit from what you said so. I I can understand that point. Yeah it was massias folk that there's no doubt about. I think we all would have preferred to cleaner finished. You know true. Yeah but as you said you know you've made me think about it there when you mentioned Caroliina last week and Boy You know like we have to have a big win damn unity every week and this was just happened to be this week's we do fucking bitch people convert people's jobs and growth. You bitches for me. Oh he made the beep at Tom. Breeze did not himself on. I was very disappointed and look I think brands very good. There's no doubt about it. Are you see. Tom Breeze When he is at the peak of his powers he looks absolutely unbelievable. Isn't he yeah? That was not Tom Breeze. We've come to the ground wizard. And he's just a couple of years got beaten the life and just didn't seem to have that get open go when when all he'd worn attempt. I think for a of a triangle barely on islanders walked him. You know what's Tom? It's it's it's tough to see all you would sandwich potential. Come nowhere near his best but you know what? I was thinking agree with you but I was thinking maybe need to get this one out away because it's been two years. I've been psalmody questions about what happened. These cards you know. I think I think you need to get in there. I don't and I think he should be commended for that. Given the situation or what we're hearing about the situation and maybe this is something you can build off the fact that you got in there. He's back in there to start as you set on still have until like. That's that's a series regular. Look Look Sane them do yeah yes being when he's being Goldman he's been you know I won't tell him we were probably talking about. Is the world champion. We remembered more before alone cared for 'em I think it might have been the second. Ufc FOR NO. It was after call. It was m not call was the second. Ucla was it. Yeah it thinks he lost Sean Strickland as well yes sorry it was after call when he. Katie Nakimora okay. You'll see at the time I really was still what I may remember. We were doing the preview show at the O two and it was me and Simon Head. All we were talking about was breeze and fucking building was very and on top of that. Guy Joey really. Yeah that's brilliant. This is this is the next guy fifty. G's for breeze and it. It is sometimes used to say you know and he. Yeah it's just it's just disappointing. But at the end of the day if you look at Tom on on you've seen as potential as we've talked about their you know he's not going to be a million miles away as you may be said getting out of the way on you know. Maybe a quick quick turnaround probably better late for loan them but maybe will definitely a look. I mean look. Tom Lost a fight. The renegade they believe is unbelievably. I mean he's the head coach. There is an incredible team teams in Europe. As far as I think. It's a bigger picture for Tom. It's not Joel's he's very passionate as Jujitsu was well. Obviously so I think he'll be disappointed. The most just the ground situation. He's he's usually such a lawyer. Were must we must take our hats off to Brandon. Islands wild observations performance of these dominant a dominant. Dominant stuff. The word you could you could use you know when I never felt he was in a bad spot. Radi Al Maybe. The boy never felt like our. It's not at all and they've done a great job with him down there Anna and Rufus sports to watch definitely. I think he should keep your kid. He's he's a young as well and Meyerson Thirteen. I think he is fourteen. Three three sorry. Am I saying to borrow from Poland? Put on a really workmanlike performance against say spike to Europeans. Going ahead to that. We don't like the domestic slots border as a happier later on where anger and Cudi Laba. It does happen. E E dominant position was great. And that's pretty much everything that happened on them that card. I believe from European. Oh sorry Shawn Brady. Orlands on takes a male and already thought he would look great hair. Radio TATY SAVAGE MONTANI WATCH FOR DOT. Gov He really good. He looked way better than he did in his day. I think he was a little bit nervous. Ishmail SALVAGE LIKE. I think he's really good the Austrian wonderboy and that's a huge skull for him straight off the bat their Brady again all European with Tom. Brady course on town watch for Brady. Montana. This is young lot as well. And we're GONNA NAIL SNEAKY SNEAKY show. He's definitely one to watch the future. No doubt about Roy Church. Tim Show is go for that. Yeah so we. We go onto our third interview of the day no looking onto next weekend. It is Jack. Hiatt Roy Amman. I wanted to ask questions for so long. He shut in to Just better did I was GONNA get to that. He shot into conscious of European may when he showed up at that unplugged show in September last year and starched Scott Malone on Michael Savage to get the toilet just been vacated Jack Shore he the weeks notice own Believer. He was taken heads. Have you ever? He reminds me nails. Air Scares the Shit A. I think I'll be very tariff I told might as well immediately listen to skirt shit here as well. I mean it's a wildcard definitely. Keep the hair though because it's unique. You need something unique. Why not let it definitely what's mine? What's my uniqueness? Pizza towns?

Keep your beautiful and Roy. Look we'll get Jack M. We spoke to Jackie about obviously his meteoric. Roy's has force toil defense. How he wants to fight on the Belfast car may thank you very much sewing me up. And of course at toys fury's when he's a very funny lives only ten miles away from us. A train luxury so Very interesting from a Jack Cartwright and we will be back. Shockley a now. We are joined by Amanda. I've been going to speak to a man who shot into our hearts and minds last September when he came in and he took out Scott Malone on Makovich declined the cage warriors bantamweight title for more money. He's the most intimidating champion on all of Cage Warriors. Roster at the moment is none other than Jack Cartwright Jack how are you my friend? I'm good I'm good. From power and Berry both Hunky. Yes I have so many questions I mean before this event back in September cage warriors unplugged event. They had that four minds series for the vacant toil and to be honest you would the least known haired of all those. I'd seen most of these boys for for cage. Warriors toilets before you come in and you put Malone and call savage out in one round to claim the Toyota. How good the Dr Phil and felt very much if not very good lifestyle with Relief nor elite going into the tournament. So sweet and do in which they finished function and just pre- pretty much out to everybody. You didn't already know allows careful not regret the one thing he's straight away like your record said for all but it was like this guy has been fighting a lot longer than even. Oh can you tell me about your background? I just feel like you're such a sophisticated striker you've had to have done. Some story can before you came in there in Dammam and yeah I am in. My Hospital is fine. Nothing kickboxing five. A just just 'cause fitness in like getting jeff and I like others like fighting saw. I'll just to ten now side when I was nine and then we got the compete in Diet. compete and all about competing multiple ten wrestling and then yeah competing nationally when I was an office in nationals on and then wrestle Mike Sixteen and like you just said about boxing gloves so I've always been gobbling notch locks all. I've only had five special fight for a big car. A lot of them March. That is incredible. I can't believe that wrestling would be your dominant skill set. Then right if you've been doing a dot long I'm looking at you like your story because you're just knocking goes dead every time you touch them on the rest of the drive young person fall off. The first book in a martial arts is obviously grew moving box in upstate mocked all the firefighter lightboxes to scrap all the way for a wreck. I like competition my best friend Punishing along the way through Ah It's so rare to see people have that kind of impact on someone when they connect with appointed your weight division specifically and that was one thing that the Malone and culver savage for it so many times I've just torn on that advanced on. What's your two points. I do you feel that because that's what it looks like to me like when you when that Roy comes in. It's just like the lights go off. Yeah I've always been that way all all they might. I've always I've always It's like when I used to obsolete I would never died. I one of the most Real our I won't screwed just online at the job and then you'd see the is wise even from are there with the topic. Look Amazing Right. Well what Dhabi benefit of accident on on the schedule. It's not doing both developed and I grew I I find you sat and I'm actually a book boxin even more you'll see me swing either. But the the madness saw Yeah just kind of People into adult on human trafficking. Follow US all again. I. It's a joy to behold already sold on after that employed event there was a moment and maybe people all don't point at his own it. It was a month later when Moyer face Buluan to be the GOI who face you. Moyer Roy era talk is in the middle of the afterwards and they go to your face and you're just like I can't believe you said but he could read lips and like mine. Jack Heart rate scares the shit out of me being a Man. I just I just get knocked Falko. And then he came kid realize just retired. I had great the way just plan to you in that moment and a look you look so pissed off. It was magic mono swear to God. Whoever that piece of footage was it was absolutely my present day? Were you pissed off because obviously you were there to see who the next would be right. Yeah Yeah I WANNA comply in like. I wanted to find him a night. December time the at the end of last year so hall like my phone because obviously is to be promoted. The kids and I realized the retires. I kind of actually my phone down and wait for the next batch so not doing well my blog me. Look around you'll probably feared being able to find so I didn't mind when I go yours. Yeah we've had a jack show on this show a number of times and he had a teammate on that in that bracket I believe Josh. Read 'em even. He came on the podcast the weekend. After you're crown was like this is absolutely incredible. He's he's aftershock in the whole UK in overseeing with the way performed and he was he expects huge things from you were speaking of Tanya would also expects huge things from you. Obviously both these are the last two leads to hold out belt. You have. I mean you know when you look at your record seven and on the way you hit people the fact that you're telling me you're actually wrestler. That's not your boxing isn't you? Don't WanNa do you. Are you now looking at the? Ufc Are you. Are You thinking? That's right on the horizon right now. Oh well of course about into this bar something. So I'd be lying if I said the end of their boss. I ought to check out of business and in obviously Pods I know the ice or I want to be on your own about over there on put squawking and so I wanted this. This is Nancy. Cvs from like that on staff Disney since well. That's incredibly I'll tell you a lot of Irish people would be really really happy to hear that now just in terms of Manchester Card. You're from Boston. Is that correct yet? So this is a noise this annoys journey for your your supporters. Roy I mean does it feel bigger that you're competing so close to home. Along did not being all female and got in the car and all my all the of the northern dike. Komo TRAVELED ALL. Also adults rather just congested. So obviously doll before Charles Evans. Either GonNa come back and then it's just going to be a perfect veg that everybody together. Manchester's and celery so. I'm glad that I you know I mean nights out on five and seven and all of a sudden I'm driving shorts and unjust sure. Why hops fouls yeah? I know you're SPG Manchester have you. Have you always been under inman or or did you get some toy mccarroll towns while the great times? Well Carlton's well who we heard many people on this podcast praises a pioneer. Have did you work with Carlotta Wall? Positively I was actually endless on this all these song controlling the car and then actually I'm not talking in the night of ask you ask three years for years. And so yeah. I was proud. Mona and much all that in the nine saw undesired remember we spoke to Alex. Owned the boat might and he was like you know might as literally exactly the same coach as early as he so dedicated. Is that how you feel that as well? It's basically passing the torch to an order while their own. He's not supposed to get along without. Give assignments that is all. You gotta go. Korea put that to the side and all the best and we saw insignificant. He's younger. Yeah absolutely alleged or not seen him. Can you tell me? Tell me how you're looking at your apollinaire. I saw that great video k. Twitter's put out where they were showing you striking training and to say you weren't so complimentary of the mind is probably being very nice to but what what kind you see. These said that he's all right but I'm just I had to not only not give a ever since the sport I mean I'm just dropping all the and all that so I I feel. He's a tough guy. I think he's GonNa burn supposed on. I think he's running throws which I think. Is Russian even good enough to compete? When is my doctor's any awesome? I got to say that Yeah I think the poverty on bad news and they don't WanNa be. Usc Roach on the police to be that. I wanted to ask you about the hair. This is a this is the thing that's caught on Loin. A lot of people talking about the hair when they see you. A coin of incumbent's very unique. Look and where does it come from? The rats tail was a big thing in Dublin. As well for for a long time I'm just wondering is this law away to bring back and have you always rocked it like that of all. All all had. The annoying thing is interesting. There's literally no reason are among my whole life. I throw this. Isn't that other. Listen I've said it. Once on one of the seven years I've thought about too a Lotta respect song as we look mine. Unique look goes along way. I'm amazed so I think you should definitely keep it and I don't even. I look like a video on Ivanka. Five the last Jedi can grow in now because everyone will say oh. I'm jacking your story. What I would if I had to say on the street are taken immediately did not saw you share at just a recently on instagram. And I wanted to ask you about this am because where you're from I can tell you the ramifications of toys and fury's win in. Orland is huge. I can only big it is in. Bolton are Manchester Am. What did you take from that? Check so close to your foyer as well. Is this a source of inspiration or motivation for you seeing fury put on this absolute masterclass in Vegas against boiler? Oh along. I'll look awful leased about again. Obviously otherwise you will. He used to be We use the box that are all. So I've I've I've got things is always even style and obviously needs the best anywhere in the world. So that you to see it and go over those rows this for five minutes in a show on there what do you. What do you like most about his style? When you're when you're watching boxing if you don't mind me asking Jack. Because I love to hear Florida's perspective in general of what's fair few voice probably not as many as you. But in general what fury's ability in lab very right maybe if the Games on an alliance with Stanford Lonely. Because they're not in Boston to make opium poppy for me. I'm not ready concession food and that is no Dot Net found on restraint. Shots in Michigan is a buyer. The opening bell can this naked. Roughly put the backing of the wind. So he's got my name in the most. Well I mean it makes you realize I reading this out this guy and Just believing in both things happen. And that's what people in on. I'm just going to keep it rolling and probably allows you to see the pot way clear. Disco is grown. Quite close. You imagine and he's gone on to be as you said the greatest boxer in the world one of only only three am ring champion win twice right like I mean. Does that Kinda hit home for you. That is that it's so close. He's gone it's just been. Yeah but you're right. I mean when I mean as long as those assignments we have all of them. Komo red I mean. So is clear to do the reading gratified Lisa just knowing that you put out our believing that zoo final question Jack Ham. I'm believe me. This conversation has me thinking that we will see more champions from that region in the future. What what's your prediction for. Ability going is going to be another chemical striking performance. Are you gonNA showcase a bit this rap I all overall? I'm willing so much. I always enough to many income just my job at the end of the book on the pets growing and growing to twenty five minutes. I would win. One hundred percent on southbound grinded single-day haas-tom sessions and hot especially WNBA. I'm not going to be doing. I'm GonNa believe that the wind of almost four. I'm GonNa going into the big shot and funding pocket. You won't find me complaining if that's how it goes Jack. It's been an absolute pleasure to speak. German and I cannot wait to see how this unfolds. I haven't we fingers and toes crossed that you'd be over on the Amur loyal. I'll be able to meet you in person my friend all along all on all the Best Jack and we have an action packed weekend ahead of us too much now. It's not an Ecorse Jack. Carry will be on the top of the cage. Warriors won twelve car there and Manchester Force time. They've ever been a Manchester at. Let's take a look at that card shall we? And it is a very nice one very excited. Lots of origin as well for folks back home. Booed 'em start off in that main event minute village a good test for Jack Heart rate. I mean he's a bit of an unknown quantity jackboot. What what really stood out to me in that interview is he's there knocking people dead and he feels like wrestling is a strong skills that he has competed as a scary all over the place. He's competed on Russia. Levy said in the interview. Look I mean 'cause he's just on our literally taken the large heads off this Roy. Buying Look Michael. When he was torturing lads straight away look look what the fuck did I sign up for weight hang on? Does he have hair on the back of his head? It's a very very interesting. An and I love the fact that he's already saying if we win this. I want to Bellevue a double header in Belfast. Now who what does he want to fight every one of the card? I wouldn't put a positive board at definitely looking forward to seeing them back in action. What about this well? The Way Coleman event feels like I don proctor for me is a savage. Each one of Alex's Ordinance. He's a beast and modest remain is. I don't know a lot about them. Boys right up there at the top. Put this away. Toil for happen in. Belfast. I mean it's a no-brainer. It's the winner is fights race. I don't end. That's like rocket science to sort of Work Airport After v McKee would be on week. I think the best thing here for res McKee's that they both law of each other and you know from his point of view and he'll obviously be watching Quesnoy in this one on. Yeah it is. It's probably the fight to make. Ups were a million miles away saying Pull yet it's a fun. I'm very much looking forward to go car to speak on. It's really solid still fanatic yet McCain proctor. Tastier wouldn't it? It wouldn't did. 'em Does a lot going on here as just go between topology and the cage to way the carrots going Martin Stapledon the Yaseen Bell Hodge and will states that's a legend of the UK at this stage Bill Hodge only six to put 'em he's one to watch. Here's and did that's a very what about Andy? Townsend James Webb back in action against mixed on the night talk to Chris feels a bit about this. This is a big because mixed on. It's been run one eighty four since he's moved up and I felt as though standard will be the next person to gotta to avoid the Toyotas. And so I feel like James put himself Roy back in there a big one for James Wealthier who's going to bounce back after after losing title on them. It's a huge huge moment in his career. Absolutely am that's just have a look at the card. Harrigan me Scott alone an atom Wilson Scott. Milan was taken out in the first round by Cairo. That's another man could pull himself in the hot lean gittens from Liverpool they believe against Yoenis megared abandoned appropriate limbs as well. There could be like I think ends is is a future title Challenger doubt. That's interesting to see and Tom Marines. And actually against Stephen Hooper following his at late withdrawal from Baladora. Dublin could not secure M. G. Clearance to say you can lose the weight. Federally ease back a lightweight. Here which is good. Ira McGuire Cork Am. I don't know if he's actually been. Has He been much? Let me just yes against at Jabido Rahmeh too. And so that's annoys forty foreign and very very big stakes day at imagine am and we also James Sheen back. Yeah Andy. Royal Blue Chipper cars. You remember James Sheehan in. Gary had an epic foyt rocker in both of their debut on believable for we were crying about the made me much of the time but Jesus Gross. It was a gray showcase for what we. I don't think so now I don't think he has and so you'll be interested in coming back from that a lot. A lot of damage taken for whatever the doubt and Paul used as well. You can say you know. Look look at the amount of oil rich Florida's here without Elvis carried on like a mean show. He's fighting as well as the week after he's in London. Sorry I got that is ways and bull. Paul Hughes James Gene Am obviously James Webb. We've taken around do a huge huge void there a lot of huge in terms of origin interest. And let's have a look at USC to eight though. That's the Big One is y'all Romero and Israel out of Sonya. I thought the old scaredy man over veal and that's going to happen because he keeps saying like I say y'all Yeah hopefully we'll be speaking about. These things aren't darned trying to get down on him. He's accepted about fifty interviews. We just never got them. I think he agreed to six. What we last week alone doing the show this week as well. I think he's warning us. Israel y'all how interested you in is a little bit Monica call it. I think it's one of those ones where you're just gonNA literally. GimMe a coin flip. It see what's GonNa Happen? It's dangerous dangerous for Izzy and I'm you have to give him credit for this. Really really post for this vice. He's like I'm GonNa have to fight this dude eventually. Not going away like all of that and did you see. We've talked to an awful lot. You ever see a Jose Yanni asked asked donahue he is sorry fellow work with. Okay and he has he has our aim is all about this and the way Muslims pitched it was absolutely unbelievable like he loves Israel and obviously grave friends that y'all and he was like Oh. I just love the fact that this kid wants. He's a he's a nightmare. But the thing of Y'ALL L Roy Utah. Where does he wrestle like? He's an openly pro wrestler. And obviously that's where he's going to have a huge advantage over over styles it's like. Is He actually going to wrestle? This yeah you never know what you're going to get from is from y'all fight like interviewing Hermansson last night he's like I'm a better test of of how good takedown advantage because at least I'll shoot a takedown right across the oil's a better wrestler. But he never really shoots. Yeah you just don't know what you're going to get in. I think this is the only way he wins. This fight has used his wrestling being greedy grind. East oil to your favorite phrase. Yeah that's that's pretty much the way always gone but again he can also explode against Chris wideman without any can Alec. So it's GonNa be interesting to see what approaches he goes in what does is. You'll be more cautious. Am I can see. Just being a fucking wildfire. I think we're GONNA see some before you actually. Yeah it's one of those. Think the calming for Eight Years Zhang Against Johanna. Are we going to? How are we going to have a toilet home? It's a tricky for eight months. Just running. European shopping's Habib. Magomadov is that that is not Jay's cramped Valentina Shevchenko Shit like okay. I'll just shut up on this crazy. Talk Account of all God. Listen Man I love this fight steep miatas from Croatia. Yes that's true. We've got loud the champions. It's just you have to open your mind little. We'd want him any Irish show. This week. All are three hours long. You know knew of the champions 'em I love I love. I think it's great. She's back in there again. Wiley Zhang remember when we had you on the show. And you'd like look at a guns exceeds even like what it's like? She's just impressed me so much She's owned believed I. Have we seen or do anything about and no it's actually been her tenure in the UFC is being near perfection. Our our own. The only thing I will say this. The compensation issue is because of the the move around. They've had the crown of two weeks three weeks ago. Asu Lamb was calling at all. I mean it felt like there was a lot of updates was a lot of shopping and change and look I mean. That's still perfecting. There's no doubt about it like I mean. Obviously she's she's been able to settle in and I believe our coaches did get their visa. Sorte all that stove still sound like a couple of weeks back. It sounds like a bit of a closer on The Leach. I think it's similar problems as well. He's he's talk radio fight yet. That's going to be unsettling but you know she's professional. She's she's she's she's looks like constantly just looks like an absolute savage and. I think this is going to be a very very tough task for you on to go out there and cause an upset on. You don't often say that when you on is fighting that she's going in his own a dog and I think she is this week and I'm just interested you on mindset as well. She seems chilled out a little bit altered. I think you know her. Her Ego took a bit of bashing when she also rose this the thing we always say ability people give ourselves your head but she's so interested in like I mean she she so captivate me and she's one of my favorite fighters to speak to see things more exciting. I mean import. Who who else could you put in one? Fifteen against Roy design. That would make us care this much. Like no absolutely no no way. These needs this more than you wanted us. For for the stock she can build off. You WanNa oh yeah as you said there you intrigue she makes you want to check in and watch your fights because he should send intriguing figure in the car owners. Yeah and she's cool. She says she hopes got criticized for posts about crown virus. But listen mistakes. I don't think it was Reshare Don Mantovani. One understand that it did. Obviously Jeez. The situation has gone beyond belief now with We've got the moment. It's just one of those things and yet at the card. We Have Orleans Sean. O'malley coming back against Jose Eldar. Tokyo wellness salvage look mine relate that they've talked about it if he gets true and Quinonez. Which are you expecting to? Even though he's been offered oil make that for you know. 'cause varies varies matched again. He's point or someone they. I mean. That was to make several times over to verizon. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah. Barron tons of the classical think and don't put to prospects just at the moment. Yeah okay get get would back in the wheel called him? And this is a big task for Sean o'malley for quite some time on and that's the test I think the test is. How can you perform if you Hoffman years? But if you had a much o'malley and he had never had this bottoms off and it just came off. After his last would've happily backed agree. The big differential here is is the time off. Yeah absolutely bouncing back is affected them to see if you can go in there and you know I think for Sean as well because that random it's been put in a performance on. It's not just about winning anymore for Sean. There's a lot of is in this kid. Yeah and like I mean I feel I feel like he's been very hard homeboy ago. You seem to have a whole career out of it. Seemed like it was about the launch of this situation. Ditz listening another guy. That's intriguing people. Want to tune in to fight and we need guys I thought in the AFC. It's very very important. I think we forget sometimes that you know the UFC. Pretend she don't do a great job in promoting a lot of voters and I think John is one of these guys you know. They're obviously clearly gotten behind on. Its its go to see it because we need the AFC to spread the wealth. I think in their with their marketing pro. S and other European Bag suffer off has a big big test on his hands against Rudolph over one of the Great Ju Jitsu players of all time. Because you've got an you scum on me. Silly question him he is. He's now you came off that way and remember put out in his debut. I'm trying really really Oscar but until here on. Am Look Supper. Software OFFERS THEIR EXPECT. Vieira to be able to get through to be completely honest. Sabic is coming down from Voyager. One eight four that I could be a bit interesting boy. Expect the grappling strength of Rudolfo to be on a different completely speaking of grappling strength. We also have Marco Madsen the Great Olympian take on Austin Hobart He'll on his his record on the Loin. And and yeah. It's it's looking good for Mac Os so far and I think he spent a Lotta Time Vegas. The moment am believe is one of managed. Elina was well. Probably who isn't to go point and Darren win returns just after two? There's lost at Darren Stewart against a Gerald. That should be actually a tasty vote there to open the car not a lot of European action but I will end it boy asking you for some predictions. No sign of Your Old Romero. House the end. Who Wins on you? How's IT HAP- Five Ryan more edges? Or does he point wash them now. Is He'll come back strong in the fourth and fifth but ultimately yelled walkway victory and Willoughby thing that everyone's crowing about on the south. We can't go a week where it'll be a split. Oh it decision that Georgia's got it wrong and every scorecard but somehow everyone in the UFC. Yeah that's what we'll be talking about in Sunday's no-doubt it'd be some controversy. I'm going with my boy is. He wouldn't be less than I can I? Actually I'm just doing it interesting. I think he's GonNa stop metrics in the Third Reich. I wouldn't be surprised not either. It's all 'cause he's he's volumes over the eagles and and he seems to be a lot better wrestling defensive people give him credit for even though again. We're going to wondering we'll y'all will actually because it seems. He doesn't seem to transfixed lake down. You'll never does what we expect them to do. He'll do something he'll jump over the cage or something a leap like Blanco. Remember Blanka From Street fighter. He's just wild energy yeah absolutely just lunatic or a comment event. What design versus. Y'All WanNa who wins out to get it done. I think y'all want you eilly finishes Yaw within three. How did you finish grind pen? She'll drop wrote a left hook. She'll attend to submission but then she'll fall off and then she'll just slap her in the face you go put your money on slap to the face and I'm going Johanna decision and our job is going to locate the modal school call. That's what I believe is going to happen when you look at the way. You WanNA fought Jessica drudge. That is a massive class job to face off girls. She did and Bush. He's going to have to avoid that. Power away these but I do feel even though Ziying took care of business against Andrej feel drives the bigger one shop. Our BETWEEN HORNS TAKE. The air of invincibility is gone from you on. And he's GonNa Ramona's all well. Yeah no I would not be surprised but you just. Maybe just don't feel as though she's where she used to be maybe in a career Harsh words for European legend on the greats of all time. She is done. That's that's not in class. Don't get it twisted Europe all day long here by hope am bored am look we have an interview with Chris Fields and here's a retainer. There's a lot of interviews. He has a return bill in April. Eighteenth he's done a few interviews. Oh fire but I feel like we take a bit more out of them today. Maybe has been put out there so far. Of course this whole thing popped up after. Ufc Doberman was announced shortly thereafter Christie's announced for comeback for you call online Zion. Chris feels retirement in the in the three arena. So you call it furnace. Few weeks added to me before. I even hopping thought it was a nice idea but then when I saw the interviews talking about so I was like. Oh maybe he's not gonNA talk about bill or even sorts. They just before I got down here. And he hit me with the Hawks swords Schwartz Schwartz. It's like a little drop of the south side on the north put shit. Don't even don't even try to rush it. Did you hear Doggone Blanco? Look we go to this interview with? Chris feels Gracie sat down. And let me be in his company for fifteen minutes a day or Boston. What a gentleman and we'll be back to talk show it until the Pasta Hans. You've been asking me to get him on on his back once again not in the host round this time though he's a guest. Of course Chris feels the legendary Orsha may F- Former former cage. Warriors Middleweight Champion. Making his long awaited return to the banner on April Eighteenth. This is all comb out of left field to a certain degree but Jesus Christ Reaction Chris that blow you away a bit like I mean You know you're still an active foyer but just the announcement that your quarterback the cage warriors. Everyone em you know huge huge online. He was unwilling traction for did you. Did you expect that and Or you know what I just kind of glide through my life thinking I like point so I'll fight and I don't think people take too much notice And it's GonNa Yeah. I was actually saying to like a few. My maters like to be mad. Isn't that like people actually like watching what you'd like like watching me do what? I do is cool to me but never look at it that way lads Khanna slag me here because I just don't really see it that way when all you hear like I dunno like like Stupa terms like legendary pioneer and all this shit like I. I'm just I'm just some lady like likes kicking. Pungent Aladdin as well. They like here. Yeah it's like we've had this discussion before to me like it's like you're selling your body it's prostitution call him like. I'm selling my body people's entertainment. You know what I mean but I love it. I'm sure most process download. They're all of them. Would I do and Yeah just kind of amazes me that people like seeing me do cool. I like it. La You cage warriors. I mean feel like you've made a like a a big commitment to gauge warriors. As a coach with your goal is James. Of course former middleweight. Champion he's taken mixed on this weekend and of course arena is the talk of the town Orleans You know really is the talk to push 'em what what convinced you go to a feeling that would have been on the table for a long time book. I mean what what prompted at this moment. Well realistically of my my aim was always to kind of have My last four year two way caterers. That was always what I wanted to do. And like I would have felt like home to me. Cage warriors always highs. They've always been very good to me at the yellow glows via Roy from me and and then realistically like Kind of I don't really. I didn't know whether it was going to have this conversation but I'm going to tell people what the plan is. So the plan is basically to avoid April. Get a win and then push for use in August so that was a big one because that was obviously going to be next question because Gulf android APP tweeted this and went crazy as well when he basically the UFC. Double announcement came out. He says wouldn't it? Be Great to have Chris Fields and this guy. Because let's be honest. You wear the guy out of everyone that we everyone thought was really going to be there. You know. Everyone thought that you were going to be in that mix NFL for ages. Needy countdown to a Roy is like every time he fought off. You wins this you know what I mean. It's really felt that you were definitely most prominent name. That didn't get to where the black gloves go to the octagon etc. After your after your journey with twelve but I mean this all came afterwards right this announcement. W W talked to grind. Boylans this is. This is the goal like. I mean that low heavyweight toils vacant. There's a lot of moving parts here. So like my my. I spoke to grammy. I spoke to Graham and I told him when they wanted to do. He was supportive of the whole team. Always has being to be honest. 'em So my plan will be fine. April pusher UC in August. If that's my comment about them fight for the cage warriors title but my overall plan will be fine April pushed. You've seen August if I get it. Then I'm just GONNA leave my clothes in there on on in in August and be done with it like that's it from me is a lot of interest. I mean in terms of when you look at the USC coming to Dublin. You need local storylines. We've always had local stories on these cards. You know even as far back as Tom. Egan defer storage going to fight in the octagon. It was their second one. Obviously is connor debuted. Then you had potty getting route into the the main event last-second last time. This one doesn't seem to have as many available storylines right. The only thing that people are really focus on at the moment is key if he wins the toilet these there whereas if you have this guy that's opponent here this board here without a doubt a former like you know well established name in Europe. He's going in and he could be potentially in his four eight and the gun. I mean that makes a lot of sense right like I mean the that would be. That would be a huge huge attraction for oil rich man's especially. Yeah like I said. I don't really say a great from me. That would be like a kind of noise ends to the story. If it doesn't come about will then it'll be at a cage warriors Thailand. Leave the goes down on 'em like it'd be a fairly special moment for me to be fine in the nineteen ca you know? Get to make it all about meeting. Another draw in the house or chair is this like I mean has claimed as this is a possibility. Obviously Graham has brought ninety-four foreigners to the US's Oh I mean. I'd say you have a good idea if this is something that would west the UFC's appetite. Yeah you know I was Kinda. Hold them with the planet so like this. The first part of the plan is April so like we've said loaded Hans before it's like crystals one you know so I really hope Emma fallen into this trap again would be honest like you know he. He likes storyline. I I think I ruined Kinda likes storyline in the Narrative. That of spoke to to be fair was called idea like him. He messaged me about. He's like dude. You should do that like I'm finish up on that you know I've been Kinda like on the exit for Awhile at trying to figure out how to do it and I felt recently that it was just starting to get away from me as it wasn't going to be in my control. It was just going to happen on Shit. This has been mad. I'M GONNA end up just not having a phone and then it's all over and then I'm going to be fucking weird. Fokker in my forties. So so he just kind of want to do it on my own terms and I just feel like either does situations where where was UC or the the the cage warriors. Thailand is leaving. Goes down and just be dome on my own terms. I think could be it. Kinda put like a nice full stop on it for me and then I think for everyone. Kinda just got started and you know what I mean it sounds me. You're saying only twenty twenty. Is Your last year competition. Whatever way of looking at it like I'm gonNA important years on our like on it. Like on dawn boy September either way so my plan will be like either of those things but it looked to be honest to be looking way team. It's getting harder and harder to balance everything. You've got a a family as well so I'm trying to like Kinda doing a Moi terms It is difficult to north. Put Him lookie the the other side of that with the team that I have literally created my own train partners so sometimes to my own demise but yeah so I have all the guys around me that I need I have you know one of the lexical and I will come in to help me and put a yet to. That's GonNa like it has to in some point. You know what I mean I. I don't I never thought it was going to be the type of guy to actually say I was doing like I feel like if if dot storyline played. I don't think there's any better way to do it. Yeah you know you said to me for a long time. This coach and I can remember when you open this Jim Forrest. You're like Jeez I really like this can really save is being me. Is that what it is like? It's just you know that. Look in Gary as you said James Webb already cage champion like these guys already have names your this. Jim Hasn't been in a long time like I. Is that going to the success that obviously you got great numbers as well as the owners and the review. I need to commit more to to coaching. Yeah you know. It's it's hard to juggle both things neum Roy you know so at like the guys afield allowed. Zana my plan so they know it's like it's not surprising on humanity and so like Debbie willing to Kinda ban the little till that's over. He can't be like economy Putin order on the like on the back burner while you're getting ready for your own fights all the time so they know how this one's GonNa play of time the well. The April card at none of my guys are going to be honest. So it's it's my own thing you know and so he can just go over with my team ongoing fight and concentrating myself and then whatever happens after that then just that like. Just pour me focus into them? I feel like that's what was happening anyway. The last oil. And that's what I'm saying. Standard just get away from me a little bit like you know. I think there's like like you know. Zoom they sometime. You have to call but like I think it has like things to in your own terms. Art Is always touched. That little boy in. It's all look like I'm always GonNa want to foil of foreign or you and I don't. I don't look at it as probably look at sport like a low of the sport if I love campaign and contestant or two people and I get the other side I get the money make inside and I was just never been my big goal in you know never been about. So what's a light? Kevin Lake people talking about Levin. And you'll see. His name is like one of the most. Prominent names is being talked about already. Just three and owners careers over is overwhelming at all. When you think of how quickly everything's we have been. We literally predicted this. When this when this when like you you were telling me this goes pro. It's going to go off into the stratosphere straightaway and it really is. It feels like you're nearly holding going back you know. It's like Jesus on a calm you down here before you take off like I mean. How does that feel to you like the? Is that a realistic goal right now. Or is that something you don't really want the means moin at the moment you know. He's got he's got coming up so he has to deal with them. I I think cam I like for me. You know disclose tests between so. It's not an acting like we haven't had a conversation about. I think it's early very early for him. Like you know this time. Next year like March the London car that do every year that'd be almost ideal you know or even a little bit late in. He's very young. He's fantastic and you know like the the thing is for him. He's not in the same boat with someone like me. He's GonNa be there. I think even concede you know what I mean. Even if he picks up a loss as like at this level like an comes gets a few moments. He's Daphne GonNa beat her. You can see it in the kid. Like he has the Gena Se Qua as they say you know but I just a like. It'd be very early on. I look at people that have done it Roy and the Jack Shores and all these kinds of people and not the road see like you know that's where you seem with the belt and again that promotional power put behind him because like when Jack in Netanya went. Look just for example to the caterers. Usc They were established. Brian's nearly before they went down. Is that the way you see it with him? Yeah and I also think like I don't I don't want them to find you. See He's not again. It's not like me I want him to be. Uc Champion. And I think that's very possible for them so I think that's that's the road for him so I think Putin some Katie. And just because like the name you know when you see to. It could be detrimental. And you've seen it as well amazing fighters maybe pickup loss. Uc clothed them. Just never the same again. You know the the road seems hard to get back in Conway of way so I just think like. I'm going to be smart with that kid and play no. He's grown mind so his decisions or his own white voice would always be like Aaron aside cautiously. You've been saying about Webby as well. You've been sure to be thrown his name in the hat. In every time you see. Even their media goal is talking about who could potentially be. There obviously got great links to this gym. Great links to oil and am he's obviously fought in this weekend against. That's a fight that the expected mixon before a toil. If it wasn't James Do you know what I mean? So is that really what it is? Not Our basie. Notorious Coleman M connolly like to keep James pointing the tree rounders for awhile. He's been uniform. Fronting obey on 'em. It's a lot I he like. He's a crazy hard workers ridiculous. It's humbling sometimes how much he puts in For everyone but I think like like he beats maybe has two or three you could be on the cartoon dolman before Cole Sharona Woodham Look at. It could easily be on the card. You know. 'em He He's it like if it's more but performs now for James. He needs a COUPLA big performances. You know he knows how to go in there. And and that's the way feeling. That's the way he's training so expect like sexy violence at the weekend. So imagine you're going over here and you know obviously the Corner James and you're gonna be seeing Graham Boylan they're on and say there's GonNa be a bit of talk about the potential opponent you can face in six weeks time or whatever it is and we noted Indian is a menu agree on his knees at the best matchmaker in the world to be honest. And when you when you see what he's doing this focused area you can't own paralleled. Bought the thing really. I guess I know you've already fought these guys boy thing. If you're like a James Situation in your ends they always going to want to see oh begins like an established name or get a former U. of C. void or something like that a daily what you'd be looking for here of Indian demise. It Look Arlette Amazon. Some some Bounds of Monroe has a cold be great. Yeah look you know me. Always only find the good guy so whatever they come up with a go under following their lead like a of never really in my whole career. I've never picked opponents. I get offered some say yes generally. Don't even look at them. We just go. Yeah and then figured after I you know. I kind of weirdly. It's it's weird because I'm so different than my own guys like be like. No one of my team is allowed like speak to promoters that country me? Everything comes through me. I study all their opponents before we make any agreements me to send the name. Yep 'cause I look at I still look at it as wherever in the road somewhere. You walked up without me or so. You know it's ridiculous 'cause festival Florida crispy. I know it's hell way I'm like it's weird how I am with Kana controlling. I'm GonNa make whatever the folk let's go look. I think that's part of the phone for me. You know and it's always been part of the phone. The Madness of the whole fucking mad sport by Sport Diab an ideal in your head like Dale opponent for the caterers. And like like I said I. I'm trying to think of the light. Heavyweight is not my take is it like. There's not too many flown about so we'll see who they come up with and we'll just go from there. I'll make sure I promise. I promise if you get the win is there an ideal opponent for UFC? Doberman show? Because I mean oil like calls suggestion of Paul Gray because that is like years got history Paul's as established himself in the UFC. He's even record. I think that's the main issue to Paul establish himself and he was like I don't like like as much as there is history there. I don't really hold a place. We call someone that's fine. You know that long in the promotion. And he's like just taken draw shogun like like on you know me. I'm not one of those guys. Like Shogun Daphne do that for Human Holy God. That'd be a dream. Come True Anderson. A to avoid just the face. It's grab like a movie. Just not. Just keep me in the face please. It's not a full fetish on. Its on the face. Yeah you know. And he the former cage warriors have you which I'm Modesto is just signed. He's fighting and that could be a possible when you know something like that as much as I like calls our idea. I think palm age of pass on unit colonel. Ann I duNno like I'm not GonNa have a bunch of promotion so like you know me man if it was impossibility with deafening doable. Yeah hell happy is going to be all this because You know she's been a rock for you the whole time air like this is as you say you know. This is going to be your last year. Like is that a will be a great sense relief Or will it be? You know emotional moment for you the family when you when you eventually do hanging up or is it GonNa be a classic anime. Retirement is going to be out of retirement later. I don't know yet. 'em To be honest. The lower is more stoked about me trying this than like like. She's she's kind of a Lotta time. She's the driving before she loves like shouldn't let me find she loaves me doom When she would be someone saying to me like you know you need to finish it out in Europe terms and all that kind of stuff could she knows me so she doesn't want some bitter Obasanjo for the rest of our life definitely happened one hundred percent like you know. Just let it run over. Just let it ruin and then like I was like ocean forty-three you can't do this anymore. You know I'd be like fucking pissed off. Midlife crisis grow ponytail like snakes. Going around and Mazda is a Mex- joined to chat up nineteen year. Olds you're not a focused loser. Sorry offended Chris. It's an absolute pleasure and this is a great story. I really hope. I think it's going to be an adventure over a few months here which I which I like it. It's the like the restore in a way where it's going to out a lot of interest in this cage warriors. Show to having you back then. Having that story off the back of it so at a really conway seon hope it goes according to plan because it would be a fitting way to finish off the career. I feel that I think a lot of warriors greet me. Yeah well like it's me. Chancellor gone to plan are pretty fucking slim. Yeah look best laid plans some and all that shit we give it a shot plays out and hopefully kicking some dude in the face in in what we call now is now is it. I can't believe you of all people have said that. The point is really back to articles written for publications. It's not the tree rainy dope so ogm kicking some loud in their faith in the point hitter in August. But if not sure I did it my way. Legris pleasure man. Thank you are you? Are you selling their oil? What you're talking about are you. Are you selling it all? You don't sell anything but I you boy in the fields O K. Yeah what else would we told you need? Local interests me needs great local story and hopefully. Ufc Listen Sean how're you doin'? Shell Hey Mick don't be ringing me DOT LATE START RINGING. Us and all of us. I think some we need. We need more stories we need more narratives daas. I'm what fitting way to John Legend of mixed martial arts to go on a she'll in Dublin on August Fifteenth Credible Story. It's funny with Chris leak. He's always like that announce memorial day when back talking to us as like. Oh I didn't really expect this to happen. We put his name in. Everyone was covering it. Wasn't everyone everyone was running on this Orland. I mean that's a lot of interest generate. He's an established name in as UNLV POPS into off. The ball lands themselves to stuff like that. He was obviously and featured in the Atari documentary stuff like historians intertwined with that initial ruin. He was the if there was one guy that everyone was like he should have got shot in the AFC. It was Chris Joe. Outside of the people who went at that time. I think he was the one that the the most glaring omission yet. Oh Yeah what I do on. Fortunately it did become the story of his grandma because then every so close are we gonna we gonna you know But we'll be wonderful on. Thank you know. We're not really GONNA have a huge amount of fighters in the car and then we can. We can accept that. We've we've mentioned probably two three tops. Maximum including Joseph. Dopey Joe's obviously no brainer. I think JOE IS GONNA get a knock card regardless you'd think so so him you know. Obviously we were talking about if he makes impressive statements and Chris on yet. You know. You can't beat stories like that and I think you know you mentioned that there. The mainstream interest dot says to me that the UFC should really take this seriously on seriously. Consider doing this. If Chris wins his CAGE WARRIORS RETURN. It will be no brainer for me. Detraction has been huge amongst Chris and You know we talked about Paul as well. You know imagine. Imagine having Paul Chris Joe. They're all big names popular. Yeah I mean how important is it? The firm for Indian to pull in mass stroke and get a good apollinaire for Chris on April eighteenth. Yeah of course it is. It's it's volatile. I'm sure I'm sure Chris a crisis one of these guys. I think it's fair to say that. He's never really backed down for money when he's fought the best of the best in Europe. And you know whether it be one hundred and eighty five. Are you know all? You've he'll go in there and give it his all but like I'm sure Chris is sort of in a weird way going folk. I hope they give me someone shit so I can make a statement on an impressive state saying he said to me at the balance. That's not going to happen. I think yeah I felt already booked increase increase. You know he's GonNa WanNa go test there. It's really about making a statement. I think for Chris absolutely absolutely you know everyone should check watch just before. Came out with the timeline. Estrin Casey of put together for USC to forty eight. And it's fantastic. Just basically and loading up the careers of Romero yet. Always a great feature editor big pay per views. And I'm actually really looking forward these folks. I'm on a wedding this weekend whereas when I damn firemen statement good friend Thomas Groin. He is again married to the Liberty Lane. Mcguire you'RE GONNA say you're laying off now you know if we let him away with it. I'm looking forward to a low of stops and you're looking forward way. You're not really actually can't wait for this. Can hate weddings. Do he stopped new jacket. Did you snazzy?

He's funny you got more at a hotel and is both said we've lost. That was great so I just think yeah. But they're imagine if they couldn't make sense to stop holding an open just it's GonNa be a dark day. It's just get over it now.

Usually i find a lot of joy coming into this when both of our teams win on sunday. But you know my team one. And i can find. No joy in winning are six game in a row. Whenever you guys loss on would might have been the most amazing play. I have seen in multiple years in the nfl. And i just feel down. I don't feel like i'm in a celebratory mood. Yeah even though we have now Proven that we are the best team in football and But watching you guys you know watching those hard-luck bills you know the way to the bad luck follows. It really has put me in a somber mood for you. I don't know how you showed up to work. You know under the circumstances okay. Okay and that's already enough. I texted you. I texted you with eleven seconds to go to go ahead. You seem so arrogant incompetent. And i'm very arrogant. I never you were very arrogant enough to eight. The text me the difference. Is you take pride and joy in my team and more importantly myself suffering having about sunday. There's also me sitting here. Sad said fake tears healing for you. I couldn't move my. I can move from my couch i was. I was frozen for forty five minutes. I could not move. I have never experienced that range of emotions like like pure happiness excitement jubilation and then it all turned to heartbreak within a span of two minutes. I've never visit that kind of range in such a short amount of time. That's what happened with daniel in me at the minnesota miracles. But you know what. I felt like whenever that dude god that long a area it was it was it was actually painful. I woke up in the middle of the night at two thirty a m. I opened my phone. I went on twitter. I watched it just to see it was real and i swear to god. I cannot go to sleep for two hours. I'm exhausted right now because of that. I'm exhausted because of that. Play the thing about heartbreak from your team. It's it lives with you. It living with my soul. And then i see everyone on social media saying greatest catch ever literally about an it down then and so down and out because it literally was probably the best play in the nfl in years the promise he cheated he pushed off. Let's just be honest. We call burry smile before he threw. The i mean kyla murray. What a stud. Right in a dual of quarterbacks the guys that are supposed to be the future we saw that kinda murray is the guy in josh allen is just another part of the pack i mean it is about. This is ordinarily i would say to. You know what you're right. You know what. I did have a worse than you as you sit there drinking not sipping. I will make the argument right here now. Though that i actually had a better weekend than you. Despite the fact despite the fact that my team imploded and had their hearts taken out and stop the number one. That's an interesting number one house. Qb ones ribs doing on this monday house. Qb ones ribs doing miss am jamaican number one. So i'd rather have a healthy quarterback a health and having did have jameis winston as your hey aramis arrow yesterday in the morning. I put out an instagram story calling. Tom brady drew brees his son. Yes in i've been is talk about the i. Send a message to dana. And he just sends me to face palm. Because i was like look at drew brees son about to go play. You know we hope you gotta do ended. The day i received a text from the balls. That goes utah. All that expletive and you jake's drew brees the only response could give that save face palm that he gave me bro. i mean. qb ones out. What are we going to do. And i i didn't. I thought i thought it would be fine. But this ain't no teddy bridgewater man we got. We ain't got teddy bridgewater as a backup right now. James look bad taste. Hill can pretty much run the ball so well good. Meanwhile i go on twitter this morning and i see your boy. James harden has asked for a trade. He wants out so that team is so you sit here and you make fun of me. Meanwhile everything's well good. Yeah we lost at the last second. It's all good. It's all good. I don't have a basketball team. That's imploding. i don't have a football team. That's really weird. We're gonna to rebuild trust. I started the new management. Upper management will get the rockets figured out when we will have james harden next year. Yeah yeah where you can have on on poster night when he comes back playing for the nets i mean for real and then on top of all that i see. I was actually going to start the show. Saying if you're in front of me right now. I would give you a hug. I would ask you if everything was okay. I would even give you a big fat wet kiss on your forehead. Don't talk of all your troubles with. Ps five i feel bad for you with your is five troubles and now you know what i take them all back. I don't care about your. Ps five troubled. I hope it never works about that. I hope it never works. Hope you're asking people. You're begging for people to help you out of bed. I'm completely normalize myself. My point that. I'm on twitter talking to people i've given up my number two multiple people that have promised to help me like i've literally spoken on the phone with a lot of fans because they promised to help me but it has all spam you. I hope they all call you. I'm still not able to get my playstation working reality. is this area. I'm probably going to have a new number because at some point one that these people that i've given my number two are going to put it on the internet. They're just randomly calling you yemen. I just i won't say bory. Desperate desperate desperate started responding to direct messages. And any anybody that said they could help me. And i'm talking about thousands of people. I picked off five of them and smart sounding ones and i gave him my phone number for us to try to figure it out and safe to say we have not figured it out and i have made a number of new friends because the fridge economy is bad is bad. I got desperate lost. Someone was filming that you talk to these random people on control the last night like last night somehow control word in one guy added me into a voice group and i'm thinking maybe he can help me so we just got her talk guys like what's your instagram name. Like dc underscore man you got three million followers dudes like hey man you got almost three million followers. I was like yeah. I shouldn't have gotten on this call. Like what am i doing. What will save the same. Both of us had rough weekends for many different reasons. But nevertheless you know who had a great weekend as we try. And by the way before we actually get into these happy Raisin bran data to you yesterday was national raisin bread to the crowd raises today was was national raisin bran day so national raisin bread day you know all this i mean i really wanna know how day we actually celebrate. We made Muffins oh of course. It's good as listen. I'm jewish. I got all kinds of problems. All right so we need raisin bread. My kids used to eat. They don't need it anymore. No raisin bran raisin bran yes very serious raise the red red day said raisin bread anyway raisin bread bread raise british tremendous. I love that. I have every friday night. Let's talk ufc betas this past weekend. Paul felder held those sanchez. What a story where we were. We said goodbye last monday we were is. Rda gonna have an opponent. is it going to be. You know someone like out santa's in the end a couple hours later we found out it was your broadcast partner. Paul felder and the story was that he took the fight on five days. Notice which technically is true but really. He took it on three and a half days. Notice if you ask me because he had three and a half days to drop from low one eighty s to one fifty six. He ended up being the first guy to step on the scale. In the end they fight. It doesn't go his way one crazy. Judge named chris lee scored at forty eight to forty. Seven for paul felder. But i mean i think most sane people had it fifty to forty five for our but you know what you see one of those fight if you ask me no one lost right no lost nobody loss in honestly like i mean a lot. There's lots of made about fell to taking the fight on such short notice in rda accepting to fight. We talked about this last week. We talked about how guys don't generally just stay on the card especially a former champion. rda rda took. the fight ended up getting honesty in terms of rankings. A bigger fight because felt it was in the top ten like twelve right now. Forty fantastic fight looked like himself. I mean big. Strong kicks unbelievably hard. His wrestling was on point. He implemented the greatest he. He fought the fight then he had to fight even if paul had had a full camp. I believe it's a difficult match up with. Rda's on fire. Like he is. And i talked to paul about this. I said hey you know you're a guy that started kind of as cowboys training partner and then your roof sport in. That's pedestals. jim. I go with you fought. Rda either those guys three days notice. I mean that says a lot. You don't if you had more time the russell. I think he the did better but i just believe that. Rda motivated at one. Fifty five is a problem for everybody. He's a real problem so a couple of good pieces of news to come out of this fight. In addition to the fact that fell there showed up and save the day. He announced that he won't be retiring right. There was some talk. Maybe he was done after the dan hooker fight back in february and even going into this fight. Maybe this would be the swan song. And he's like all of a sudden. I feel rejuvenated. It was great for a guy who's never fought for a belt. Who's always kind of been in that mid tier to see the entire enemy community rally around him and show some love this past saturday to fight like that really special and something. That's really unique to our sport. Because even boxing you don't get stories like this right you don't get top guys coming out and saving the day but you know what it was almost symbolic in many respects of rda's career. This guy is one of the most overlooked underrated fighters in the history of the sport. A former champion who has literally fought them. All right like even went up to one seventy he fought tomorrow. He fought leon. He fought called becoming. He fought everyone. Wants seventy one fifty five. And i almost forgot. Dc that this was his return to one fifty five right like none of none of that was discussed all week. Nothing was made the fact that he was coming back after three year. Layoff to one fifty five. I think even though he's thirty six i think. Rda has run left in at one fifty million does he get the way cuts figured out. I think he could be assault player again. Well think about the fight right with felder last week and the way that he wanted to fight. You believe that. A fight with dan hooker. A guy who has the same type of skill set as paul would not look similar. You know in a way that ardeche try to implement that same game plant now. I'm not saying he's gonna beat their hooker. But we saw close. Paul and dan hooker was allowed to fulfill to one fight so there are matchups within the top five of the division that rda matches up really well and getting a win over number seven puts them right back on track to where he wants to be a massive moment. But you're right though man like the focus was on felder as it should have been right because of of of him cutting all the way taking the fight on such short notice but rda showed everybody that listen takes two to tango. And i'm in this fight. That's the better fighter expressly tonight and i'm going to get a job done. I remember watching early in the fight and you saw how almost felt like the show pivoted and it was built around paul and everything that admit to him in terms of what his father meant to him and Him taking the final short notice. And i remember thinking to myself like. Rda's not just here to take part in participate in the paul filled story. These dudes is gonna be here to win this fight. It was very clear very early. That rda was in there to get the job. Done any fought beautiful. Fight man. I i just it just makes me hosmer is in in. I think back to the performance against pets when he won the title in some of the fights that he had on his way to the title. While i was like. Wow this guy's an absolute killer. Any looked like that on saturday night. We forget that his last fight at lightweight. Three years ago was against tony ferguson. Fight he loss to tony ferguson. We know who he is and who. He was three years ago prior to that. It was the eddie alvarez fight so he left very much at the top of the lightweight. Division moved to one seventy clearly. Wasn't the good way class for him. Because i think he's a little too small and him fighting one fifty five now. I wonder if all of us because look we know. Who the the creme de la creme of one fifty five pound division is obviously be is still there sort of and we'll get to him in a bit but there's this there's michael chandler. There's tony ferguson right. You mentioned dan hooker. I wonder if he's like that. Next guy in the mix or because. I think that they were trying to build islam office day. You try to run a back with islam now or has he moved on it someplace. I think i would like it to be him in islam. Still because i believe it's a big fight for islam. But i think by beating he'll he'll hop right into the top ten top seven eight area. He'll be right up there now in i'm sure. Rda and his team will start looking forward right because now him coming back down to one fifty five. It looks exciting to fight islam. But now when you come off with a win like that he'll probably start saying. Why can't i fight. Dan hooker. Who isn't scheduled to fight his e no now like guys like that are scheduled connors fighting dustin poor chandler. Maybe michael chandler. I think that he'll start looking at one of those big time fights now as he gets back into the have lightweight division. I hope it's this long. I really do hope it's still islam. I think it's a good fight. But i just worry that. Rda is now going to start looking forward opposed to a guy that's gonna be behind him in the rankings. Now here's the thing. Though after the fight he said he wanted connor. And i saw some people sort of laugh at that scoff at that lest we forget it was supposed to fight and i always felt bad for rda. It's amazing amazing. I was thinking about this this morning. Think about how history the history of the sport and this company seat would be completely different. If that fight actually happens a ufc one hundred says anywhere the for you. Don't get the two d. s. fights. You don't get the you'll see two five moment at madison square garden with the two belt. Who knows if you even get the mayweather fight right so much so much change as a result it would be nice if they could run back. And you know forgotten of history dc before the brooklyn incident at barclays center. A couple years ago the plan was for. Rda to fight conor for the interim welterweight in brazil in may of that year. A lot of people don't know this report at the time conner did the thing at barclays. They pulled the plug on it. But that was actually real things so actually. He's missed out on to connor fights throughout his career. So i would like for it to happen at some point that seems to open to connor said let me worry. Let me deal with dustin and then you and i can do our thing you know. He's open to it because he views. Rda on that level right because like you said on multiple occasions they were supposed to fight. Not only were they supposed to fight. There's fifa titles titles at welterweight and lightweight. So obviously that's a fight that's going to interest mcgregor. Would you call an audible on on dustin and do rda or giving this vital leave. It alone doesn't matter both of us right doesn't you doesn't matter more than a dozen are open to the gym together louisiana. That's we can't be so mad at each other that we're we're we're gonna open a gym together in our hometown. But listen these sensitive. We are each and every week. We talk about these fighters. We try to help them. We tried to guy bad. Edgewater get mad at a little constructive criticism and boom they turn on you in a second turn on you in a second and then when you try to tell them listen. I'm doing you a favor. They call you saw as i he juice off last week or you get so everybody taking you know what does the toby a couple of weeks ago. He said you get soft these see. I can't even joke. What you know more i was like. Wow you know what he said to me. He said you're getting soft area like your friend. Dc oh my goodness dust to come on my brother. why are you doing. That doesn't listen. Call me soften retirement dopamine on the same level as every come on. They'll do they'll be a could we go back to like in in and dp. Excuse me justin and connor in a second but yet but when in this whole thing right when we give our the as we give him his credit where it seemed like going into the fight. People were overlooking him. Now in hindsight we have to remember. What paul did but listen to this though yesterday. I'm at my house. And i had gotten the call right. When paul fell to took the fight it started a ripple effect michael businesses during the movie. Hats off to. Mike is a fantastic actor. He's going to england. Now do moving so he's off contenders fell. There was dare to call the fights and due to contend series on tuesday. So i get the call fell just fighting. Dc we need you on tuesday. You gotta come like okay. Some ready to go felder fights. In all paulie red stash paulie read stats from philly fights. The fight comes out on sundays laying in bed. I get a call. dc Felder late once lay in bed for a couple of days recover. He's going to work if you don't want to wait what they're like. I was like what alleged bro. So he's gonna do the tuesday contender series tomorrow felder. We paul felt ahead. That paulie red stash villian get takes the final three and a half days notice on thursday. Wait cut is so difficult. I heard from ian laurels. It was one of the hardest. Wade cuts ever. But paulie the gig. Said he is makes the way not only does he make the way. He fights twenty five minutes against the former champion in. Rda showed up. I on the scale. By the way i you said some fights you don't lose. Paul fell doesn't lose. No because on sunday i get the call from felder. He's all up. You know. I go paul. I'll step aside because this is the stuff that legends are made of this right here. This is a moment paul. That does people forget this. The upper brass doesn't forget this. The fans will forgive this when they see you when that visual when the tendency restarts in europe there three days after fight against rda calling the fights your alleged. Paul fell two tags in. I'll do it contenders working tomorrow three days after that fight. He's gonna put back on his suit and he's gonna call those contender series fights. That's paul fell to forty people talk about good guys in the sport right in your almost tempted to believe that it's fake right like all this guys putting on. This is that not an agricultural demand. He's these guy he really is that guy. He's great at his job. He fought his butt off for twenty five minutes. Rda yeah he lost but did he really in on tuesday night when the start. Paul will be sitting at that table. Call those fights that is gangster scars bruises. and all. that's going to do like everyone. I run away when i leave aerial run when i lose i run away. I want to wait for six weeks two months. I'm going because i need to lick my wounds. Paul failed because you know what. I've got a job to do. My job is to be there on tuesday. i'll be able to do it thorough. What a seen that was in the main events of both guys walk winners in in different aspects and then what is seen in the co main event.

And i could tell you. Dc right now. According to my sources that the talks with connor are moving in the right direction but not a done deal just yet so it is worth noting that the talks with are moving in the right direction but not a done deal just yet. This of course for january twenty third so one to congratulate dustin on getting the fight signing the deal making it happen taking our advice to heart and you know coming to his senses. And that's how you take credit for everything grinding everything. This is just what we talked about behind the scenes. I won't get too far into it. But what a what about by the way.

Point is fun. You know they show up you know. Make me still feel like an athlete. I'll say the testing pool. It's fine sometimes. It's fun to just get tested randomly. Why would you wanna get test. He's had forty seven times. Yeah i'm a yeah. I meant like fifty five but i'm trying to break the record. I'm just trying to stay out ahead of everybody. So yeah that's why it's not a big deal. You're still getting tested. Yeah sometimes so. I thought i thought you take yourself out out of the rankings and initially i was gonna get out of decided but then i was like you know what i'm just going. Stay in the us. Why are you serious.

Did you see what yancy medeiros said on twitter about testing. That is You want me to tell you. Want me to tell you an interesting story about me up. Sure go ahead okay. So i would go to take my tests at times. And i'm kind of a despicable person and when you can't if they come right after peed i try to drink a lot of water and coffee while at times that makes my stomach hurt and have to go to the bathroom solid. Go to the smallest bathroom in my house holds the door. Sit sit to number two. That's what i would do. The guy's like oh man so you wanna come to my house and i'm cutting weight. I'll take you in these smallest bathroom in the house. Like you gotta sit there like. That's what i would do guy. Poor guy pouring. Thank you for this information area. I am despicable man.

Because do this all no more. No more i'm done. I'll have jumped off the bandwagon until they started doing. Use the dc. it's over. Well let me ask you about this bandwagon. Because tony ferguson has been very active on social media over the last two days Basically begging begging to be added to the last pay per view of the year. You have c two fifty six december twelfth. It's been hit by injuries right. We're supposed to get Versus burns we were supposed to get amanda nunes versus meeting anderson. Both those fights are officer. Were left with just one title fight at least as of right now jamais sterling. Here's tony ferguson. Begging to be added. And i got news for you dc. I don't think he's going to be at it. He wants to. Michael chandler chandler not responding at all. What do you make of this whole situation. Doesn't it seem like a layup. So yes it does my question. Is this the with chandler. What's what's what's the plan for chandler. What's the plan. Or what's the hope for chandler. Not only from the organization but from mike like who they want. I think the most legitimate fight is to take. I mean tony ferguson. That's an insane. Fight that fight if you get past ferguson. Now you no one contender in. Not many people can argue that. Maybe he i don't know i don't know i. I haven't figured out why. I haven't heard anything yet about chandler. Is you have debut. That's i'm very interested about. And i believe that him versus ferguson. Makes all the sense in the world as a media star power to pay per view. Now that has only vocal hausky is vulcanized. Five algebra you need. You need another name to fight card. I'm sure they're working on it behind the scenes but seems like a layup gophers in verses channel on their. He's putting videos very nicely. Produce videos by the way putting out and he's getting no response. I'm told that he's hitting a brick wall like it's not looking good for him to be added. This reminds me of a couple of years ago when there was marla mariah versus. Henry's the who don't chicago and also valentina versus just guy. They needed some beefing up. So they added ferguson. Versus donna tony. Here's tony ferguson. yet again remember. He saved the day back in. May jacksonville trying to save the day. Beef up this card before whatever reason. There are no takers in dc. You know what. I kind of feel like right now. I sort of feel like michael. Chandler is debut this this is shades of kurt. Angle nineteen ninety nine. He's he's he's cleancut. Good looking right. He's got perfect physique. I feel like he's kind of a he'll right now because i he enters the company title fight that no one really thought of sense then. You have already campaigning for him. And he's like not on now. You have tony ferguson. is michael chandler. And he'll is he like perfect. Like the perfectly groomed when they're when they're perfect. It makes you want to not it makes you want to boo the guy right. What's going on here. So michael no cell. Everybody know so. That would be great. If michael chandler ends up in a title fight that would be the ultimate operating in there and just like you know what tony ferguson. You're you're calling me out. It's not for a bill. Rda in mexico you know. He's an interim title fight or even the did the lightweight title white. That would just be the greatest thing in the world because it would make people just dislike him. And if i'm chandler. I'm just steering right into it. I mean if all that hate is often. I'm just turning. My car is hard left as i can't. I'm going right into the hate because like you said. Many e- seems to do on the surface. He seems to do everything right. Tracy hardy looks good. He's physically strong but it almost seems as dole right now coming in in the way that he did. It's almost like the silver platter is getting handed to them. Because how does a guy that's about to make his debut. Have that much say or no say in terms of responding to all these that have been here for years. They can't get a like this. Acknowledge of it's crazy to watch you guys. Put them over like no other on the broadcast. He's there with talk show. He did such a great job. He commanded he commanded the screen. He was very well spoken. He turned to me. He turned to attic. You could see that this guy a tight or through his lifetime. You could see it. He's warner title. He's been in the spotlight. He understands how he needs to behave in front of a camera. Or maybe or maybe as as our producer. Sean is telling me now. Maybe he's john cena early days. John cena he so perfect at everyone turns on the guy. Because i feel it is just so perfect but yet like dc. How do you not respond to ferguson. Ferguson is putting out produced. Video packages like ferguson. Went out and made his own video package and it wasn't just like something on his phone like this was high level stuff mean it might be even better tonight so what. He's putting so much effort it he just too. I'm too big for you. Tony ferguson. that's crazy. I'm just gonna wait here for visual here. Feige be maybe you got. I was just going to be like really. He said you know could be said. He's walking away because he can. Either you come back and be thirty or twenty nine chandler said it could be twenty nine channels to say that i missed that line by nine. Chandler don't like michael chandler just sitting there going. You know what. I'm going back and fighting iraq. I've never seen anything like it. I don't think i've ever seen a guy come into the ufc. It had this approach. It's kind of brilliant in some respects. But i would love to see that fight added to the twelve twelve. Would love museum fight fight somebody alternately. As far as murchison makes sense of the world. it does but as fun as we're as this is so fond and he did he'll he's gonna have to fight someone he ain't gonna just get habib bar mcgregor so we who that person's is going to be and of course with regards to mandate and megan anderson. Perhaps this is a blessing in disguise for the one forty five pound. Division delays things a little bit kayla harrison debut as one forty five or later this week in. What is very packed. Mma scheduled this weekend so we'll see what happens there but as of right now. We don't have a new date for format nunez versus megan anderson. Now that's twelve twelve dc. I gotta talk to you about twelve nineteen because look dc. We got a lot of big fights coming up. We got the big fights to end the year. I don't know honestly. Can i be honest with you right now. I don't know if i've ever been more excited. For a non title fight than i am for leon edwards leon rocky edwards. Harrison's by these to be right now this is going to. Because i talked to leon last week so i wanna report back my feelings. Dc this is the last fight in the last card. The last main event of twenty twenty. What is twenty twenty two thousand twenty the year that kicked everyone in the grind right. Everyone suffered some kind of battle is like oh gosh. I can't wait to get the next year. let's get over. yes what what. it's like. What bad can happen. Next is the question. Yes it's just like one bad thing. After the next year when the pandemic started the first main event the first car. That canceled was leeann edwards versus woodley march. Twenty first i'm going to look at four liens year and who has been screwed time and again in twenty twenty. Could you imagine if the year ends with leon edwards who is the symbol for everyone getting kicked in the groin. This year the year ends with leon edwards getting his hand raise leeann edwards. Who told me last week that he thinks the company is rooting against them. The company failed beating the golden boy. The breakout star the wolf cubs. You can't read a better screen. Visible wishes he had this little. A burnt-out coming out there. That's the last you fade to black. The kurds come down. And it's leon rockies with his hand raise what's better. You can the fact that that's the last fight of this year with leon against hump side. Who's kind of the who's who's been the biggest beneficiary of twenty twenty twenty. Yes as you buy of. Has he's one of the very few people in the world. That two thousand twenty has been good to most people are like one in this year comes out if he could live in two thousand twenty for the rest of his life with the way things have been going from making his debut. Having those two fights in two weeks to knock in gerald being at five dollars and sitting next to dana white in legitimately becoming a star overnight it feels like but now he's got liane edwards if he ll has if he loses fight in the end of the year. Hey hey in listen. Liana was eight fights row. Liane edwards is as good as come. This is a massive step up for homs. Brodus is crazy because if he wins. He'll skyrocket to the moon right. I mean are we looking at. How are you're my winds. Are we looking at a situation where you start going. Old gilbert v gilbert. You waited like this guy comes on for like three years. Carry right like it's like he did everything gilbert did homicide is doing right now. Taking every fight fighting the guys he wins. It's massive. how do you deny liane edwards anything. He's the one that the fight sums at sitting there at the table with dana white leeann edwards. Can't even get a meeting with data geddes incidents vocal as you can take it out of the rags for twenty four hours. Because he didn't accept the dc. I just think if they sell this the right way. Leon edwards represents the every man who has been screwed over and twenty twenty who has seen his hopes and dreams dashed time and again this year. And he's going up against the done leon bad. I'm surprised liane talk to you. There's the he deemed the mixed martial arts on monday h. By monday afternoon. And they promise never talked to you again. I'm surprised liane still talking. It's so funny. Because liens said a air i can't i can't do his accent. I was about to do you and i are cool. I know you're the only one in this. Sport was had my back literally the only one but that guy dc who i trained with rocky of american kickboxing academy who took me under his wing back in the day this would never say that rusty would never say that you go look at the never turn his back on me. Leon leon lease. Leon jimmy my brother because this is nonsense. Don't let this don't let this number one guy gets you. Don't let one listen. This is what he said. This is the part that really stuck with me. He said he added dc. I'm just disappointed. Oh come on what he said. He's reminding friday knows anybody that is in this world. Know that if your parents they're disappointed and use bad rocky didn't say that. Not leon. Leon you did not say that message meal guys job as a wedge between us. I'm the guy remember leon. I was the guy that was trying to give you the nick d. as vita when he gave back with area was trying to put you in in our area might be you know what i was trying to fight for the bubble. We're not going to rehash that one. Because i me in all kinds of trouble nineteen. I can't wait if they need me to fly down to the apex and sell this. I mean is it time for me to make the mid to ask a favor throw throw me to the back and just be like for more on this fight. Let's go to our correspondent area. Hawaii and i will cut a promo on. That used to be that as we dig. Hey hey hey now now is care by in now. Let's go back to area. Who wanna in the locker room with dc after his first law. I'm in there crying and now looking back area hawaii standard with the president. Dana white aid area boy. You just i mean. I have never seen a situation where you went from the pit house. Down to the on zoom. Where where what happened this you would happen. Well tell you about another guy. That i'm very now i'm gonna ask i'm gonna ask it. Hopefully we can get started again. I mean i just hope that the asking doesn't end up with me in the same position. Lacroix when you're when you're there this weekend for ufc two fifty five. I'm john asked. Let's just throw it out. Tweets just the tweets. That's all i want the tweets on the tv. Wait you want your tweet on the tv. Yeah some followers and the boom you know the other day. I actually had you in my tweet. That made it onto the broadcast and it was like wiped out. It was ill. Shooter was mistake all my tag poll fell the rug. I forgot about that wiped out. Let's just hit lead. Delete delete in. Now we're gonna put this up. You still tag them wrong. So i'll help you with your social media. Which is a token. Social media is bad horrible. It's one of the worst social your punctuation your twitter. Don't tag the right. People you start tweets like with a period when it should be a period. It's like you a period. That's the problem you so you started to d- somebody told me that we period are common. The beginning dot com. That's horrible knows. Said you put it in the beginning. Because then he goes to people that aren't following you or something like that a period yet. It's a mess anyway. let's talk about. Ufc two fifty five. That's this weekend. We got two titles and we got the return. I mean leon's by guy no doubt about it but you know you know what i said. I was on the david figueredo bandwagon before everyone. This guy hairstylist. Sushi chef taxi driver. He's a true renaissance. This dude the face figueredo though loving people people knocking this pay per view. I would pay one hundred and sixty dollars. I would love to watch view this whole hair. I cannot have this conversation again with you about david vigorito. I just can't as i we've done it. We've done it. I can't do it anymore. But the fights this weekend. Yes unbelievable davidson figure. Rachel showed power and skills at one twenty five. That makes them so scary. He looks like he'd be a long reigning champion from the first vitas knockout to the second where he literally dominated job from. Start to finish and we have not seen. You'll be dominated like that. I mean dj. The dj even dominated him in the way that davidson. Did i mean deejay did knock him out in like a minute. And but twice right before weiss sagging time wasn't as bad right now the second time naga but the first one was was a little bit better like there was one fight those kind of competitive toronto. Yeah like but like he got dominated by davison figueredo and he just choked him unconscious. He beat him on. You mentioned it never happened if you ask me. He beat him on the feet. Didn't he dominated him on the ground he just really out hustle them but then alex perez aerial. I mean when you watch alex perez from where. He started to where he is today. He's improved leaps and bounds. I think that these guys fighting on saturdays a guarantee good fight and it shows why the great triple c. Champion champion champion. Who really did the whole entire mix mars community a favor by fighting and get the division brought back because this is a talented class. I just can't wait to see what shirt davison wears to the flakes. Remember the last time us wanted that like. I don't know what that was like. I was saddened or some. It was still glass was still velvet. Actually looked like a velvet. You're wearing sunglasses. This is a big deal for contender. Series by the way because Out first contender series product to fight for a belt. So you know. Dana white's excited about that right because this sort of validates to show. I remember when forced griffin fought for the bow. Bacne ultimate fighter. This is sort of the same type of thing but dc. There's there's there's two other flights on the card brandon marino and And royal. There's only twenty two to twenty two flights in the ufc right now under contract. But i feel like the division with davidson figueredo leading. The way isn't a pretty good spot like this is viable and then to have brueghel and any loving big loving marino. Have him in mclovin about the fight this week in that just gives you a clear number one contender to write fighting on the same night raw val looked like an. He's been insane since he made his debut. I called his debut. He beat a kid from Kansas city tim. What's elliott elliott submitted. Him in the final island that he had was just madness against was a guy's name the english guy right. The guy isn't kaikoura. France was kickoff No from australia from australia car france that was a crazy fight hurt him on the feet and submitted them and then we know how good mclovin is for. As long as he's been around you know brandon marino so it gives a clear number one contender all you can really hope for in a division that was essentially on the cutting blocks not very long ago but with davidson figueredo at the head. It does seem like it can be around for a long time in have exciting fights. And of course i don't want the entire country new zealand. Hate me new zealand. I made a mistake zealand. France city kickboxing israel. Your worst cool hats. sorry about that. Can i tell you an unpopular opinion of very unpopular opinion. And people are gonna hate me for this but this is one hundred percent authentic. I genuinely feel this way. I love the fact that the to flyweight divisions are at the top of this bill. I love that. it's deficit. Figueredo and valentina shevchenko the to flyweight champions male female now. We don't know a lot about like i'll be honest. Yes sure their opponents pres- jennifer. My respectively aren't the biggest names. But you know for an organization that has been accused of maybe not paying the same type of attention and love to the flyways. I think it's kinda cool that the to fly with that they group them together to me goes must see. Tv she must see tv. She's the second best female fighter on the planet right behind miracles to amanda jones as an undersized person that she can compete with amanda who has just dominated everybody else i mean nowadays is a killer but more than anything i think. Would this weekend shows right because you say many cases people talk about this guy's deserving of a title fight but he doesn't get it because he doesn't have a big name this weekend. You got two people getting title fights that don't have the biggest names so they're getting it. Based on what they have done not on their twitter following or their social media or their ability to draw people in there getting because they've earned it legitimate earned her title fight and she's getting out forever earned his title fight. He's getting so. I think it just speaks to the state of division and speaks to the fact that if things are done the right way path to a title fight can still be pretty clear. Yeah the wayne's are going to be interesting because we're just one fight removed figueredo missing. Wait so all the number of times. He's done number of tom and jennifer. Maya has miss wait a times. She's a former invicta. See one twenty five champion you've ufc. She's had some trouble in her last fight against join calderwood. That's how she got the title fight with the win over joanne. This summer she has mistake before that fight so the way in semi on friday are gonna be really interesting to see if you make it. I'm trying to tell you though man like when you're going into your first title fight usually will not leave things to chance. I mean i know. I know people going to say ooh would you fought buffalo. You did this this near the bro. These guys are going to step on the scale. i'd wait. i'm pretty confident. Clip this up jedi clip. This on friday this comes to fruition. Got the return of walking buckley. The man who we ask from hill. I mean knock out of the year no doubt about it. Some pressure though right. Don't you feel. There's a bit of pressure on him to top. That if he goes in there with the idea he needs to top what he did that time. He's going to get himself. Beat you gotta go in and just compete to the best of your ability because the reality is joaquin. Buckley did not plan for that kick to happen if he had planned for it. It would've never happened. You gotta just let yourself competing fight in those big moments are presented to you. Take him and you become an overnight superstar like he become an overnight star like he did with the knock on violent. I wonder if he's gonna try to like you. Don't want because his life changed dramatically as since the knockout. If you try too hard to your point usually happen. Yeah shogun face a lot of a lot of names. The card has been maligned to a degree but there are some names. There's something for everyone on this card so you'll be there. You'll be calling me action. You're back yup me. Joe rogan maggie. The eighteen eight teams back. You know we can't wait to call the fights okay. A few other things that we have to get to a what about last week. We talked of course about paul felder in an rda but Patricia pit bull law looked incredible right. What's up with that dude with that. Like what's up with this pit bull like this dude is crazy. Can i tell you i saw. He knocks out. Pedro carvalho he advances. In the bell tower featherweight grand prix. I think people versus volkogonov sqi. The respective one. Forty-five champions is a very very even fight. A lot of people were calling me crazy for saint like putting out a poll. I put it on a pool and volkov ski won by a landslide. I think it's just because people don't know pit bull. I think pimples one of the most underrated fighters in the sport today. And i think that would be a very close fight crazy. I think i think there's a couple of guys over at bella toward a very tough Douglas lima and they don't get the respect. they deserve. No pit bull. But i think what we see is when channel fights because he's another guided lived at the top of the division in bella tour. We see how he competes in. We'll know if those guys really chandler. Not that i'll go. He moved up from one forty dollars. I get it no. I'm saying that i get it. But we'll chandler. Goes and competes wallet and you know pit bull because he beat him right you are. I know it does work always but you know but when you watched guys leave the ufc bella tour. The vast majority of the come champions. So you know that the level. It's relative but i don't know if all these guys compete i do feel like could there's some guys over there. I think he'd beaten you'll see and he's in the same conversation as you because an and fitting that he actually beat volume on what connemara deemed world champ champ day because he is yeah camp. He sent out nice wishes to us well to you. Manda nunez the celebrate in any particular way. Did you Did you pop some bubbly. Did you know i. i don't know. I don't know who created that. I think might have wasn't the that he won his second. That's the day holiday right so the champ jeb days counter. What is that built. You know what i'm saying i. She didn't reply to him. You didn't say thank you. I mean. I just i just i was out. I did take no. And i appreciate it because there was a time that he did not he. I think he might have took a shot at me with my second bill. You know so. I felt like it was a it was almost. I felt like it was a peace offering. Because the last time he tagged you he called you fat fool so this he did he did he did it. Listen that's the thing about mcgregor right. Mcgregor's he'll do. I don't know macgyver shoulder to shoulder and you know shot. He gave that shot to amanda myself. In rian bro. It's difficult to do with all four of us have done hold into titles at one time is not easy and people should be congratulated for that feet into get it from the biggest star in the sport. It means a lot to to not only myself but amanda an henry. Everybody else and pimples. Well who's a beltway. Double champ ryan bater to tag them easy. It was very very nice. Also in that car by the way your Your friend your old friend. I'm not sure because with an pico. Is he bag is an pico for real. What's going on erin. People's always been real like he's always been extremely talented right. It just took him locking everything down and getting an idea what he wanted to do because for awhile. Cheeks cheeks kind of thought that he can go out and just fight on just fight cheeks. That's his name cheeks. Nickname like cheese yellow cheeks. Why he was a kid when he was a kid he kind of had a little bit. I guess wrong phase cheeks. Anyway he thought you could just go fight or reality is because he's boxing right. He wanted to fight with the mexican style. In your face pressure cain velasquez but with those forums loves. You can't do that. And i think that's why he was getting hit and hurt so often but now he seems to have in writing those guys down. The jackson's have really got him locked in and he's looking phenomenal. Good to see because a lot of people jumped off the bandwagon so that he was a never was and i'll hype. That was a phenomenal knockout. And that he's not fighting top tier guys just a little thing right. There's competition here's been a step back competition. And maybe he needed that but eventually he's going to have to go back to that level where all these new tactics he's gonna have to implement them into His approach even His approach with tougher fights speaking of our peak.

Hey shut to your hairline last week you boy did you see that feel. Remember that man. I can't believe you screen grabbing that i've been holding to. Why did you do that. Shit almost seven years january of two thousand fifteen. You call me right. Before ryan beta xanthi johnson s prudential center in newark and. You're like look at this. Look what happened to me. I just went to a random barbershop. Look what they did and of course of course screen grabbed it date. What did they do tell us what they have. This never happened to me in. Newark i to just in newark. And they're cutting my hair. And i can feel the guy like putting these hair. Follicles and aaron like paint. It was almost like paint and he starts building my edge up in i. I'm looking at it. I know i'm kind of looking good. But then i started thinking you people made notice that this is not my real hair line. Started to get a little bit. Worried have the carlos boozer's situation started into my head and i was like you know i don't wanna keep this but if i should probably ask someone for an opinion so i called you thinking i could trust you. Use screen grabbed me. You screen grabbed me. At least seven years was it was it because i got you catfish that one night when for dinner or something i eat fried catfish. And you're like no. I don't know if i can't believe he gave fried catfish. This is the bottom just time to to reveal it and bring back some good. So what did you do. Did you wash it off. Or i was in the bathroom like really scrubbing it. Like having to scrub it out of my hair in what. I went on the show tonight. It's still was there a little bit so if anybody can find the show from that fight night it was still kind of in there like i still one of my greatest shows because i felt like i just looked so much young in vibrio back now now that the island has gone. Good good shave head. It takes five minutes. I literally five minutes from just shave. Been buzzing my head. I love it. You don't have to fade nonsense. All that i mean who needs sitting in the barber chair having to go meet people having to deal with the fact that you just look ridiculous when you get a haircut like. I don't know why i don't know why. Wait so long because honestly i had to say so myself. I'd be remiss. If i didn't say i took i look very good right now. You know. I think the ball head in foods me you said. I said you had a horrible weekend and in many respects you did than we can because the whole has five thing but you did have one. Great thing happened to me. If i'm wrong you were finally. I don't know how this is possible. Twenty years later introduced to the legend. Larry david yeah. Yeah start watching party. What is it called. The called party interruption curfew enthusiasm. Do go down good. that will come down. Yes yes. I watch curb your enthusiasm. It's my favorite show. The world over never saw this show. No it's fantastic. This larry david out of his mind row. He's out of his mind. He really really kind of reminds me of you a little bit. I'll take that as a compliment. I think a lot of people don't have his money so don't be too complicated but like the fact that he acts like he's like neurotic the way he acts. I'm like wow. This is aerial aerial acts like this. He acts like this. I can't believe it took you this long to watch this. Well i i love seinfeld seinfeld that it would be good but it's really good. It's been real good. So you're like binging. And now you're done with the beverly hillbillies you're onto beverly hillbillies for months man. I just it'd be a great show. So i think i do like vpi every day at four o'clock so shut up. I just i got confused in my words. Curb your enthusiasm twenty years later this guy. He's starting watch it all. of course i watched it. It's it's one of the greatest tv shows of all time one of the greatest sitcoms. Not as good seinfeld. I will say nothing will ever be as close the early eighties moves. See what's his name. James moose character a sub. What's his name some black. Oh gosh he's so funny. Beyond leon black layoffs on the old black is the man. He's the man. I love that show. I love it. Well that's warmed my heart when you said that you know i felt like you want to maybe get a little closer to jewish culture. Because i actually started. I asked him i asked. Brad slater go. Hey do those jewish guys act like larry. David does as narrow does he goes aerial. Does seem like you guys. Do you act like that very weird. Dc we've been doing the show for almost an hour actually a little bit over an hour still not as long as it took for nevada to figure out the replay only bill not as long. Can you believe that. did you see that. And then well so one of the issues for me is right and i had to really be careful with the way i talk about these commentators because i said something about sergio mora enjo- tour wants crazy on you. Remember that i remember that l. mad. I'm just trying to tell you the truth. Like if you. I should be telling you i mean i do it. I don't mind criticism but tim bradley. Joe test was so mad they were so mad. And i'm watching it and there were times already. Kinda came together doesn't look like he was the head but that caused the but you knew right. You knew dealing with nevada all these years. There was no way they were going to change that we did. We could have saved thirty minutes because there was no way they were going to change that. It was like everyone's upset but you know that that call wasn't getting in autumn. It didn't get changed and the one that was being unreasonable. Dray right andre ward was guys. Let's just wait till we get a decision right. He can feel it he. He can feel it in his boundary awards so like into a box. Despite he sense might have been like england. Like this ain't get j.j. so we go so far left real look like idiots when they don't take this call so he was kinda trying to bring bradley and tested for little bit in eventually. Call chase. could you imagine your boy. Atlas on there they were never went off. Air said would have been talking to four in the morning. If he was doing it. That would have been amazing. I feel bad for that kid. Maloney but shut to a terence crawford another great performance to get to see him fight. I go space terrorist. Africa terrorist crawford sons fantastic rustler's you will not believe how good is kids are as rustler's they've got a great little club out of omaha. We see them on national scene for our youth t but has some little boys. That are insane. Rustler's listen covered himself was a good little wrestler when he was growing up in. That was another classic tears crawford performance on saturday. The right who didn't look that bad until you watch the slow motion and he just starts killebrew. We're out of time dc. Flies by it really. Does we gotta wait a whole seven days by two. We're getting to the next week. James harden will be a net. Who knows what will be going on now.

I'm your host gorgeous Georgia with his always devious. And dastardly goes our ASE. Co Host goes happy Monday. I'm getting ready to Trent transfer from fights. That just happened in Auckland. New Zealand Bell Torture. I'm Dan rising chimed in to Now this fight week now. It's not a pay per view for a week but I'm really excited about The flyweight division coming back strong benefit versus Figueredo. That's GONNA be Pretty F- pretty great. And then the following week. We have a mini Junkie Reunion. Not like we used to have with our listeners but with our staff plus of course the fights. Ufc Two forty eight. So I'm actually starting fight week one week early. I'm I'm really that pumped and coming off that fury and it was like box on plus you called it. Man Our teams. We have a lot in common. They won this weekend. That's why I'm pretty jazzed. Even though it's early on Monday morning take it. You're jazz does well. Oh you're doing the The buckle so you're right let's do that. We got a bunch of these nuggets. We're going to go through all these cards. That happened blazed through some of them. Because look we gotta be honest. Some cars have it some cards. Don't it's as simple as that so again. Some news some five bookings and of course our experiences from the weekends buckle up two thousand eight. A former football star pulled off a robbery so daring and so strange that it went viral worldwide. It was the perfect crime story. There's just one problem. It wasn't the real story of what happened. The sneak is a new serialized. True crime podcast from four the win and USA Today Sports. You can subscribe now on Apple podcasts or get it anywhere. You get podcasts. On Tuesday January fourteenth last week you'll recall pink started with box. Can't do it again. Love boxing but I can't do it again. Our sports mixed martial arts. Let's start with Dan. Hooker versus Paul. Because that was the better meeting event on Saturday on paper. Fearless is wild. There was it. Don't get me wrong with respect to those guys but hooker versus felder delivered. I scored it for Paul felder. Forty eight forty seven. The call was forty eight forty seven. Two time for Hooker. One's for felder so the judges just had another way three people just one person so I would have been just like that guy that submitted the score for felder I think goes you said the same thing yeah. I ended up having to watch that fifth round again though and I feel pretty good about saying I thought. Puff elder won the fight. So why it was very very close there's two sets of stats stats get put out at during the broadcast. And then there's other significant strikes that I see a get attached to enemy decisions or something like that. I don't know But according to what they were telling me all right going into round five one nine one. Oh one in advantage of felder and felder still out struck by a few strikes in round five and then on top of that goes. I also felt that felder had more impactful shots. So not only did he have more strikes he had the ones that just oh jarred hookers head back a little bit or or may not allowed or noise or whatever you WanNa call or maybe just cut them open. You know there's different ways of defining impact form not always. GonNa go by noise. Obviously but you know what I mean just it looked like it. Impacted damaged the other guy more. Now that said Hooker did have to take downs. One of them which felder actually kind of defended both of fairly. Well except one of them he spent more time on the ground whereas the first one he didn't but yet either way I didn't see hooker damaging felder with what's called significant grappling. There was a scramble towards the end wound up inside control by. I think that's scramble was initiated by Felder who almost got up actually was trying to spin or trying to out-scrambled hooker and get a better position. They landed in in a different position. But I mean I wasn't enough there for for me to say that outweighs what Feld did and felder of course if you even want to fall back to other criteria was definitely more of the aggressor especially around five. I had it to to going in. I'll give you the scores urine set in a second and tell you how they played out but I had it to to go in and around five. That's why I didn't think the calls just. Yeah I think what could have. Maybe not help. Paul filled out was just aesthetically. He didn't look very well right. I mean early on within like the first minute. You could already see a little bit of swelling on that I and and the calf. Yeah so I think maybe that might hurt. Hurt him a little bit just the way he looked damage but the calf well he never wants like you know. There's a lot of fires that will retrieve or switch stances or whatever he's doing he's still kept doing what he was doing like I. It's not like you could go. Could the fight be stopped from kicks? No no one for the no. No no no but I think when you break down the fight. I just thought Paul did a little bit more than I think. He had more steam on his punches. So I was. I felt very comfortable giving him the fight but it didn't go his way and it was a very very close fight and say what you will. I mean I know You know people talk about hometown cooking but when you look at the judges you know. It's not like they're all from New Zealand or anything like that. I think what people more mean is just when hooker does something. The crowd has more pop to it. Makes you feel like more is actually happening happening than it is. There's a little bit of that. You have to contend with sewing. You know when you're going overseas and you're fighting another do thome territory This could happen. Yeah and now. Here's our break down. The scores FELDER did get to tens in round five from two different judges. Now one of them. It got him the fight. He needed that around to win the fight. Because that guy had it to to going in around five except I felt a one round two and that guy didn't write that judges name was berry fully and then there's another one the blue judge right there's red and blue corners but there's also that was the white judges the blue judge the colors. This one had it. This one gave cooker around ten. Had he given around ten to felder than felder would have got the second score. You needed to win. So even though two judges gave them around ten all right. It didn't matter because the one that didn't had two other rounds for Hooker. And that's why he got his forty forty seven and then the Yellow Judge Aside. I was Howard Hughes and then David Bethel be He. He did give a ten to felder the only promise. He gave the first three rounds to hooker now arguably one in three. We're hooker rounds. I thought it was to one hooker going into around four but I thought around to want to filter which if you look at the significant strikes again felder won that round it. So what can you do man? I'm trying to find different ways to figure this damping out but we can't about on the show. I started three thousand episodes ago. I said Hey. Controversy is good for the sport man. It helped it helped stock make soccer thrive. I think it'll help. You may thrive. I still stand by that right. Because these controversies have us talking about this and not talking about others that fought on the card because more people talk about this but yet goes if you think about it we had around rewatch around five and we weren't even there. We were here and they were in. Auckland New Zealand. They had way better seats. You know and those judges we can make whatever Joe Jokes we want. But they're they're trained. I mean they've watched fights before you know what I mean not idiots. I think it's just easy for us to say it. Emory decisions was definitely way more in favor of felder. Kind of sixteen to four. I think I saw something like that. So confusing man. So I fall back on another thing I used to you got overwhelmingly win rounds otherwise if it goes the judges scorecards this can happen. I judge this fight a little differently. The second time around actually used a tool when I was doing it. And I'M GONNA make one for you and I wanNa see if you can watch the fight using that. It was so much easier for me to judge the way the fight was going that I can't wait to put this thing together and watch you and John. Maybe try and watch a fight and see if you guys ended up in this kind of art or that pendulum that we got a little bit of like a pendulum. Sorta thing But I want to see if you guys end up in the same spot. I'm trying to think of almost like a scoring system for that thing but it really helped and I really felt like at the end of the day. I had the right score. Well you know when people talk about the pendulum. You know what I've often thought about think about That clock up there If we took it down right now pulled batteries out and just use the arm of either the hour or the minute and put it on twelve all right the invite starts and then you can move that little arm either towards the one in the two or three. I guess I don't know depending on how much scorn you WanNa give what you WanNa move that thing or you can move it towards eleven ten or nine for the other guy. That's what we mean folks about the pendulum using those little yardsticks each each each Little minute that they represent so twelve while one or eleven fifty nine twelve o two or eleven fifty at you know what I mean Something like that something as simple as that maintenance. That's exactly what I did. I just I registered almost like a point system for the movement of how went right. Now if you're a judge and you have a tool like that sitting in front of you. I don't even know if they would allow you to bring that you know it's almost like you'd be bringing up. Bingo cards or something but And Plus not plus and how do you move it? If you're if you're not looking up at the action you know what I mean that that that so you have to. Kinda keep it in your head. One judge taught us that. His name is Richard Branson Bertrand from Florida. He said he uses the penalty system. And I've used it before and it really really does help. See this yeah. This is a remote control All I did was place. It facing twelve o'clock little by little moving around with it. Mike that I mean you're not allowed to use a cell phone but you can use something like it and just play with it behind. You know how much you like. That's how much you moved it. You know if you're looking up at the fights and you're just kind of moving in with your hand. How do you know that your hand equally moves left and right in terms of Kazakh spaced out? So I used the paper when notches right and the notches represent something. But don't you have to look down at the notches not necessarily know But each one represents something different right. There's smaller one for smaller movement. Bigger one for bigger. And then you just work your way back up and either way you're judged your judge yet to use your to is right right I don't know I don't know what it I don't know if there's actually like we gathered all the judges every weekend. Let's say this mythical we got this super jumbo jet and all the judges every weekend can meet for four hours after every fight and discuss it for six straight weeks until they all finally all right. We're all on same. Page every state every province every country. We got it. We got it. You know I still think you're leaving the interpretation You know back to them in in how they interpret the the the rules and they're still going to be close calls like this. It was a close fight when I watched the second time Hooker did have some significant strikes that I had to give him some respect for but either way still my the impression that had that impression that those guys left me was validated when I watched it the second time and according to the strikes I still thought I still thought that was felled. Us EXCEPT AGAIN. Two of the judges are going. Hey Bitch. We scored a fulfilled her. Is that the one that didn't was one of the ones that decided it. Now I'd be telling those two judges scored over felder. Yeah bitches but you didn't score around to fulfill their you know what I mean. Otherwise we wouldn't have this pickle But that that's how racer close this down. Sport is so you basically almost gone builder to retire. Which by the way is backing up on you. Had A you had flip flopping rounds basically right until the end where felder doubles up right four and five correct man. Yeah Yeah exactly. All have felt around four But again one of them he was. I guess we call drawing. Daddy wouldn't needed the the actual finish or a ten eight and not only would God on guiding him the The draw in so we were. Yeah we would've had a drought because one guy still would've stuck to his guns and then the other one. The other two did score ten already for Paul felder but yeah Oh my God I. I don't Know I. I was gutted for them. I had a few I go. I think I remember telling you goes think he's going to retire because he wanted to. Globes fast that doesn't automatically mean that mean that A lot of fighters can wait till we get to the back ticket off others. Just in disgust. WanNa take it off. But he had this look to them. You know and And again he does well. It seems like with the UFC. But I think I immediately tweeted Paul. You're still one of the top dogs in the yard man. Don't do it don't do it. You know what I mean because I still see a good fighter in you know left in him and I still feel like this. Division is so jumbled up there might be an opportunity now he loses one more than now you're setback becomes a year and a half two years. The champ doesn't offend defend often division And that's why. I say that the setback can sometimes be a couple of years now. I agree hooker. Did the right thing. Though he called out just engaging he was exhausted he barely got it out but he did get a name out Years ago he called up Paul felder. That happened now. We spoke gauges name into existence. Lets you that happens gauging. May We may well be training right now to be the backup in Brooklyn for normal made off and Tony Ferguson. Who knows that's something. I'd like to clarify with his agent. His manager Ali Abilities. We frequently see ad extreme couture. Hey Man he was your guy training as the side. Peace over here. What's going on conor? Mcgregor is always said he. He'll be ready to fill in because he doesn't feel it's almost like he's Jinking Jinxing it. He doesn't feel like that's GonNa make it to his credit. They've made it five times and it hasn't happened But he feels like he might be the guy though who knows because every time you know with with with Conor McGregor. You just don't know that guy's a loose cannon outside of the Octagon as well. I notice that other thing didn't get spoken up about a week ago very much. I think Justin should do that. But if you listen to the way he talks about his actual training camps and it doesn't seem realistic You know he just. He seems like he puts a lot into that. He's eating amount of time piece. Currently yeah fucked right now using a system and so he may just have to like just run. Just go out there and run five miles a day and then just do your normal boxing learn some techniques and then hopefully. If something were to happen he'd get at least a month. Not just sharpen up at that point in not just begun rolling off the couch but yeah I get it. He's always said Gimmie three months. I'm not I'm not that type of guy that just comes off the couch. Yeah All right so folks. The main event Hooker. He defeated felder. Now we're GONNA continue with this card and all sorts switching around. I'm not going to go to boxing. Even that arguably was the biggest main event of the night Tyson fury did get the the big win over deonte wilder right. Jimmy crew defeated Michelle Ola Knicks Chick. That not much happened in that. Fight other than crude. Look great man. I'm excited about that guy. As a stock goes up right hell. Yeah I mean he malden goes. He mauled him. Jimmy crude is only twenty three years of age. He's from Australia and now in the UFC. Ease foreign one. No It'd be throwing contender series. We're not gonNA throwing contenders. He's three and one just as a UFC guy he's eleven and one overall. There's only loss is to meet certain off and I think he mentioned he wants to get that one back. Let me tell you something Jimmy crude when you went to fight like that you can start shooting a shooting for someone else and deal with cirque off at some other point. I don't think you need to go right that wrong. Just yet right now. I don't think so We hear a lot of fighters talk about how these things affect them. But I I would actually say if he's one hundred percent healthy keep that momentum going 'cause it's everybody's head right now. I really think he can make some big waves if he just keeps active. Yeah and so. The theme here goes what I noticed was there was a lot of fighters that I'm excited about now. Even though some of them one by Maulings I still see some talent there. Yonge nine destroy Caroliina Cova. Cue which have you seen Caroliina coach coaches face. Let me ask you this. Have you seen our left? I it's jacked up and that's the good I Yeah we God knows what that right. I all broke a bone. And that's why she was crying at it pretty much the entire fight. It was really sad to see that fight. I was surprised getting it stopped earlier. Because you just didn't seem like somebody that could intelligently defend herself you know it just didn't look very very good on the on paper. I mean you know on on camera so I was surprised that they let that fight. Go as long as they did and then afterwards she had a little kind of an emotional instagram post. Yeah and you know I. It just sucks. It's it's four straight for her. I don't know that you have seen is getting really do much here. I think their hands are tied. I mean it very few people get that fifth shot. Plus didn't she say about a year ago that her boyfriend or partner wanted her to have kids and she was holding off for now because it actually fell like let me just see if I can get on around girl. You're not gonNA run the runs over and you don't show the skills that you once did an honestly I don't even know how she got to those upper echelon fights because she just doesn't have much pod there's not much What's IT called You know when you have only on your own. But there's there's a term for that when you You know the ability to just jump and dunk. What's that called? I'm blanking. How close you get exposure. There's another word it'll hit me But she she just doesn't have enough of that. You know what I mean. Yeah olymp explosion athleticism. She just moves really really slow and She's going to get hurt out there. Let me take some. And plus. Where is the advisement from? Either coaches managers. Some buddy all right. S- people are just putting out tweets putting out apologies. But when I'm getting. Why is this girl doing doing that doing that? Video without sunglasses. I think she just wanted to show everybody just towel. Roller Sport can be you know. This is probably the lowest of moments for her and I think she wanted. Everyone can get away with it. I when you win you can be in the hospital. You can do the hospital shot or whatever when you win but when you loo. I don't know man in this day and age that's out there forever. Maybe I think it's a good reminder. Though for people you know there's a lot of Internet bullies out there. I think it's it's a nice reminder. Remind people just how brutal sport can be what what it does to people. Well beyond Jonah and looks really really good Marcos hosiery dilemma. He looks really really good. He's taken a couple losses but his power against the right guys. You can just tell we got ourselves a fight you know. But obviously he's going to have to shore up some other holes in his game Brad rebel. He looks good. Zubaira to KGOSI. He looks good Jalen Turner. He's had a couple of losses bowman. He's getting better as well. He's turning it around. And as long as it's been a pretty decent fighters Jake Matthews. We've always felt that way about him. Song Kenan. He look good as well. Kaikoura France back in the win column. He lost the Brandon Marino brand. Marino's no joke but he looked good so a lot. A Lot came out of a card like this when in reality it wasn't the sexiest card and we'd been complaining a little bit of two thousand nineteen to start off a little bit Soft I guess in the. I think it's it's I think. It's a matchup problem. Because some of these fighters are really good but the match ups. I just don't get as excited about. I mean look the coming event. Folks was Jimmy Kruger versus Michelle Oleszek and crew. Look good but paper. If you're buying a ticket you're not excited about that. In the event you want a really really good match are I think on on? Tv We had a good night. I thought it was a fun card. I think of you in the audience in attendance that night. You probably had a great night it just. It just seemed like the pacing of the card. It just seemed like a lot of fun and then you know anytime you can end on a main event like that. It's pretty amazing. But it it. It goes back to something that I've been stressing like think about what those extra two rounds did to. Those guys look good their faces at the end of round three and look at the end of round five. It's like this is a brutal sport man. I wouldn't adding them to round. I wouldn't WanNa do it all the time. I would only want to do it because they do. Like the main event fight night cards because all the attention on them. They're on a poster and gives them the experience so when they fight in a title they now can you know they know what those twenty five minutes or like I agree with you know more than one because they they do a lot of I mean. They basically did a fight and two-thirds of another fight. Yeah all right so listen. That was the card out there in Auckland New Zealand. The bonuses went to hooker and filter for fight of the night crew and cash show. Era Priscilla cashew era four performance of the night. One Million Two hundred thirty nine thousand and some change was the total gate. Ten Thousand and twenty. Five souls were inside the spark arena. I did mention everybody else Angela Hill Gotta. Win Many props to her. Like that's six wins in twelve months or something like that she beat a record held by Donald Sarony. Priscilla culture also got. Things started off with a with a punch. I don't know if I mentioned her name before. I mentioned her name is one of the bonuses but she had a really really Nice Punch on Shannon Dobson. Remember we're not often talking about one first round Cao's and women's ever May. Yeah no I mean. Unless you're talking about like Jessica androgen or something like that somebody with a lot of power. It doesn't happen too often so when it does when we jump out of our seats All Right Tyson. Fury versus deontay Wilder Man. This fight was one of the biggest heavyweight fights in the last thirty years Both guys were undefeated. They fought once before to withdraw. Fury showed us in in the first fight that he's an amazing boxer and wilder showed us that he's won every fiber won via Ko because he's got amazing power and that's how they got to draw the can both talk a good game one guys from the UK where their fans travel well and Hell. Hell one could argue. The arena was louder for him than for the American. The fight took place here in the United States in Las Vegas to be exact I mean it. It takes every single box. Goes you know what I mean. In the end we got one sided. Mauling could not believe it. I can't believe like you. Even from the Gecko the walkouts. Were I think they put? Wwe Shame at some point like it was pretty crazy. You could see the atmosphere. They're just how how nuts. Everybody was for the fight. It's something that we talk a lot about in MMA that that's missing a little bit especially ever since the Reebok era back in pride. The walkouts were amazing. Need be fired up for just about every fight here. I think people were excited but I think it was one of those already. Let's just get to the fight when the fight happened. I mean it was. It was a Mauling was one-sided we definitely couldn't do that for every fight and Ma but You know on on on the cards but the main events every once in a while could get that one would argue. That's what you give the corners of the world and the Habib's of the world pay per view. Maybe maybe I don't know Your data both of them. This is your first time tuning in for those two fighters You'll you'll never forget that I mean it'll be easy to describe who the hell you're talking about. That guy that came in with that crazy mask. Oh okay welder. That guy that came in carried. Oh dyson very I mean that. That's how people remember these fighters I agree A ramp production something man. It's what makes it's actually what turns a lot of fighters helps turn a lot of fighters into superstars especially if they followed followed up with a big performance but again you'll see always seems to stifle their athletes and if the guys and gals get there on their own great. Hey we'll promote will make together but those three letters at the forefront UFC. You know what I mean Anyway congratulations to Tyson fury. I imagine him and Anthony Joshua I can already see Wembley Stadium. Ninety thousand people in that stadium in London at some point in the summer. Who KNOWS It's GonNa be massive but Kinda bombed because the American heavyweights you know in boxing That was just something. I grew up with man Muhammad Ali Joe Frazier Larry Holmes Mike. Tyson Holyfield I mean. I'll have a lot of areas man Hopefully we can get get that one back Overbuilt toward let's go through this real fast in Dublin Ireland Brent premiss defeated Chris. Bond Guard This was one of those cards where kind of separated into two. Like one of them was a series. One of them had a European title. So it's going to sound like there was three cards with there was to basically Bec Rawlings Ricky has got wins as well. Bell tore seven Europe. The main event there was the mcchord versus Judith. Ruiz there you go. It's pretty much all we can tell you man George Carr Canyon. Shout out to him. He got a win on that card. you know. We followed that guy for a long time in fact. If I'm not mistaken he may have been on Bell Tower one or something. He was one of the. Oh Jeez Over a bell towards unfortunate he never got the fight once in the AFC. But you won't recognize any of the other names. Keep skipping ahead belt or two thirty nine Ed Ruth Versus Yaroslava off a self defeated Ed Ruth Unanimous Decision Twenty Nine. Twenty eight across the board myles jury defeated Brandon. Gertz Goes Timothy Johnson. Were extreme couture got the win over tyrel fortune. Who was previously undefeated beautiful knockout in round? One yeah that was that was going to be a double knockout. 'cause they both each other pretty hard And it's funny because we did an interview with Timothy Timothy Johnson. He was saying that he kind of understands that as much as he wanted to get. Better at striking is bread and butter is wrestling kind of led us to believe that that where he was going to go but he threw a hell of a haymaker landed too good on him. Valentine Moldova Ski Versus Hobby. A yellow Moldau ski one and kind of blasting them. I've always thought Ho how tough out but I mean I think it was two thousand twenty four hours in a thirty twenty five in the scores. Gaston Bolanos goes we. He's five and three. We can't seem to get that guy going. He's an amazing striker but You know he's still working on the all around game. He lost a split decision. However Keith Lee from extreme couture defeated Sean Bunch who's been around the sport for a long time so huge win for him. That's a great win. Especially in the way he did it you know. He showed different avenues of a victory. Different folds in his game that flying knee was just pinpoint. It was great And Sean Bunches Tough Guy. He's been around for a while now. Yup over in how Hamamatsu Japan Rising F F twenty. One took place they look. They have their fair share of fighters. There that are starting to become recognizable but they didn't have too many of them honestly. This card was almost like they just had to fulfill an obligation whether it was the TV or are just giving fighters fight on their card but man. I was struggling for some of the names On who some of these guys and gals were. I did recognize Victor Henry who's from Kelly in these worked out or one. He's like Josh Barnett. Protege but about man in the main event Mukuru I secure defeated Danielle Solace. I think other than Dan from Morgan. I didn't I didn't know anybody excited about this fight card. Yeah now really especially with everything else that was going on to you. Yeah let's get to that everything else now with the news all right. I don't know where to go with this one man Israel out of Sonya said something unfortunate. He's already apologized. And we're all going to move on from. It has to be said though because snow arguments. Man This these type of things get talked about when somebody just says something. That's rather insensitive now folks. He didn't go racial no folks. He didn't go homophobic or anything he just happened to us. Arguably the greatest tragedy in our country as a reference to what he's GonNa do to. Y'All Romero he's GonNa make him quote crumble like the Twin Towers now since then out of Sonya has already apologized and he said it in a way that I really understood it and he said sometimes your mind in your mouth just aren't in sync. I goofed. I shouldn't have done it but with that said goes and this is a guy. This is me I really respect and like Israel out of Sonya like I can tell you that guy's got a good heart you know what I mean. He's not like A. He seems to be doing a lot of his talk about this in his kicks in his feet or shins. Or whatever you WANNA call it needs and not necessarily having the manufacturer much. He's been able to back it up but his apology just seemed I would have wanted more. Something see. He's a world champion. He's undefeated and he aspires to be. Maybe the greatest mixed martial artists ever. Then you know what everything across the board should be that way. You know what I mean by that I mean goes carve out a press release. Put it out the proper way and also put it on your social media. Don't just do it in passing. And that's it. That's my only criticism. You know what I mean and again he's with a guy in audio Atar in who also represents. Nfl people and has been doing this for a long time. I just think that man just do it right. Do like the like the professional you. Are you know the same way you throughout something that you shouldn't have to guess what shore it up do it right? And then we all move on a dropped the ball and that's what I mean it. There's no way around. It was a terrible thing to say was borderline down but Emma may fighters have just had so many things against them lately that I really do want to. Just move on with this. He did it apologize. But you know you're right. It's it's the manor which was instagram stories. You know it's like something of that. Magnitude deserves more attention. And I like the Guy I really do and ninety nine percent of the stuff he does. I'm all for it. I I think he's great for the sport but he has to realize that he offended a lot. A lot of people on this one and Your apology needs to match. What what you did right and remember. There's a lot of things you could say. There's a lot of hotels crumbled here in Vegas because they've imploded them. They've basically gone out of business. If you WANNA use that you can always go to. I'm going to seek you. Like the titanic. The the last person that was on the titanic wedding was six months old. They passed away like ten years ago like I think the sensitivities over there you know what I mean. The movies have been made and everything. This was this. Tragedy was not even twenty years old. There are still people living that witnessed it may have escaped from it or may have lost loved ones plus again the significance of it. You know one a terrorist attack versus our country. Just and he knows better. I know he knows better again he he. He explained the best in his moment of trying to trash talk as his mind was computing. I'm GonNa make this guy crumble. He after we get that part but just short up is A. You're a champ. You're a top notch guy. Who's done things right in the sport for the very small amount of time that you that you've been in you know what I mean. Take that extra step that before you your fingers get going. Show it to someone. Call your manager. Talk it out take series. If you're serious about putting an apology then take it serious and do it the proper way. Remember what I always say goes less is better. Get that my apologies or get that I am sorry. Get THOSE WORDS OUT. But then the the less you say after that you know the better in that There's just less for people to scrutinize began. 'cause 'cause that's what this that's what we live in now. Is this moment where people just sift through all your letters and words and Oh. He misspelled his apology. Oh we did this. You know you can never get it right. So keep it short and sweet. I don't agree with With giving an explanation as to why you did it or anything I it was just such a wrong thing to say that there really is no defense to it. Just say you're wrong. I mean if it's a mistake then you probably would have realized at the moment right way came out of your mouth. Oh I can't believe I said that I'm sorry. Apologize Right then and there. You know what Michael wants that softer homophobic after the rock hold win it was. It was in the post fight and he goes. Oh I shouldn't have said that I apologize. He said it quick and no one really buried them on that one and trust me man you can. Athletes celebrities can get buried and by the way I want everyone to know. I personally wasn't offended by it. I just knew that this was going to get a lot of grief from it from a lot of people that were offended by it in this country. That's just the way they are so I don't want people to think that because we're spending time on it like Oh my God goes could not get any sleep last night because of it all that. That's not the case. All we're saying is we. We look out for these athletes. And I don't know I. I think a lot of them could do get things done a little bit better here. Here's another thing I wanted to say with that. And then we'll put us to bed. Paulo Costa Rights out assigned your a disgusting piece of Shit. How dare you make a joke? Disrespecting the thousands who died and the hurric- firefighters and police. I will really kill you dirty. Kiwi all right now. Listen I doubt Paulo. Kosta was really offended by. I gotta believe Eric About ASEAN. His coach probably said Hey. This is a good time to poke that. Bear the guy that overlooked you and wanted to go with Romero. And he wouldn't wait. Two more months to you would be healthy. Get you know. Get UNDER HIS SKIN RIGHT. This hell he may. I wrote it for him. You know but that whole how dare you McKay joke I you know I I once again. I think I could have been done a little bit. Better just saw that. It makes it sound that it's coming from someone like that realizes that for another country in which he makes you know. He works for a company based in the country. That you just disrespected Blah Blah Blah. Dirty key whatever he wants to say but he almost made it sound like he was the one offended himself and I can read through that a little bit and if I can trust me others can. I'm curious to see you right. Folks take the time to do it right you at style. Bender fight very few people root against that Guy. Because he's so likable you know. I'm curious to see if this changes anything in that regard. I think I think it will be okay too but I don't know that's such a sensitive subject you never know. Yeah I agree so it real quick so are you? Do you WanNa see Hooker which is versus gauging? Next by the way I mean I mind anything just engaging I really think cagey needs to make money. He's only going to be young so long. I think he needs to take a fight. So this Kinda does make sense. How is I don't think it's going to be the play if we if when we're done recording? We hit refresh on Junkie in. Its as either Habib or Tony's out connors in basically right. I think it depends how much time you know the sooner the better right now. I said if we refresh right now right now. It's February twenty four th and that fights until like the first week of April so they would have six weeks that's connors fight only allow anything else other than that to happen is or is it. Only his tony drops out. I don't know yeah that's a good point too but I don't know that In term at that point right connor versus Ferguson have dropped out connors dealing with pry a lot of personal stuff right now so. I don't know how much that changed the landscape of what's going on here so it's tough to say. Do you think fell the should retire if he hits you up it goes. You know you've gotten to know you give me your advice. Knowing him I would say yeah retire. Yeah Yeah I think I don't think he has to. I don't think it's because his skills aren't there. I just does a very dangerous sport and you have to be all in and I think that guy right now wants to be a dad and fortunately for him. He's done things in his career where he has a backup plan and I back. A plan still allows him to be involved in the sport that he loves so. I would probably say. Yeah but it's I mean challenging her. What's the backup plan? Because he can t just make a living on announcing every three weeks or once a month. That's as that much either. He's one of them is part of the rotation. So does that mean he goes off and does something else. Let's say a lot of fighters for example become firefighters. Maybe that's a poor example my defense but while say was he goes out and gets an eight to five. That doesn't mean he's going to be near his daughter. He's going to be near his daughter in that he gets to see her every day. And that's important big. Yeah it is however right now when he is away on camp he does have the flexibility. When I'm saying is maybe maybe Monday through Thursday and come on Friday through Sunday and then go back. Luckily Philly to Milwaukee's longest flight in the world. But but but when he's with her that's valuable right now on the fights off. Do those two can go off on a little mini vacation for her upcoming spring. Break If it's during the summer they can take a whole month off and they small right now like it does. He want to be in public with his daughter. I don't know coming up because spring break still another month away or whatever but but In the summer they can take a lot of times. You can spend a lot of daddy daughter time when you have no other commitment because you basically not training in fact when she goes to sleep you can go off and get some miles in or get some training in So I think he was just being emotional. I I love where Paul Elders. At right now. I think he's still within some sort of striking distance. He's won his last five. Might we rates. I'm putting the MIC. Perry fight to the side. One of them was Barboza. One of Moore's Vic and one of them was Charles Oliveira Hal even when he beat St rate that that that was. That's nothing you just sleep. Under the rug right. His losses have been the hooker and for Francisco Renaldo. He does have one original one to end Barbosa but talking about like Kinda like the last three years. I still think he has a car to play here. One more card to play in terms of relevancy to be a contender at one hundred five pounds. I love for him to continue. I mean I think he does too. I agree I'm just thinking of the way looked at the end of this fight Injury suffered with Mike Perry his body's going through a lot. He doesn't strike me as one of the guys that has to do this. Because there are no other avenues. You know he's done acting he's lived in that world before and we've seen a lot of crossover with mixed martial artist into that world as well so I would say that if if it's enough to make you break down in front of millions of people that's pretty strong pain and it's something that I probably needs to be addressed. How about the beat? Maga mid Sharifov off he says that at UC to forty nine. And I misspoke earlier. Uc to forty eight to the one. That's coming up here in March. So you'll see to forty nine is headlined by Habib Versus Tony Ferguson. He says he'll be fighting a top five opposition. But it's not set yet. Who who do you think it could be talking about? I looked in the rankings and the only one I think he could be talking about but I'm looking at the USA Today sports rankings. The only ones that matter all right at featherweight. Who's not booked? Is Brian or take a fight. That was supposed to happen like about a year ago. I think used to talked about maybe even a year and a half ago. 'cause VULCANOLOGY VERSUS. Holloway looks all but said and the only other ones icees Aldo who just basically became bantamweight so he. If he's saying top five all I see is Brian Ortega now remember we include belt or fighters in our rankings. Six eighty seven is a Jay McKee. Now he gets a chance on John Frankie Edgar Not Mikenowak Konno's booked Perhaps the Korean Zombie. He doesn't booked but those are the only people that would match right here. Where are they going to be Frankie because Franks coming off losses? He's considering bantamweight and I'll e manages both guys and I just don't see that happening so the only other person can think of is maybe the Korean Zombie if he hasn't been booked Which I don't think as of this moment he has a fight booking. Let me confirm here. I mean there's not very many options so I don't even understand why you don't just come out and say it at that point. Yeah I mean I dunno by Lifelock is exciting. He's he's fun. I want to see him back in the cage. Yeah Do you WANNA see Angela. Hill fight you wanted to take some time off or just keep up this pace girl. I'd like to see her. Take some time off. Yeah Yeah I think this is the time where where you can get better. And if she serious about making a title run. I think that's necessary. Pretty cool she's just turning around saying I'm in you know and in two weeks she's taking home a a Fight Boat or sorry your show money and win bonus you know what I mean. That's that's pretty damn cool. And she's going through her next contract. She has a little bit of leverage is becoming the ceremony of female mixed martial arts you know the UFC loves that. So I think I think she probably bought herself about a good two to four years in the company. I mean she'd have to go over and four at this point you know what I mean for her to to basically get dismissed all right. I just want to finish with one. Last thing. Here goes Submission underground eleven took place might Perry outlasted. I'll Quinta In submission grappling that's cheile son Show up there in Portland Oregon. I think it's cool. That fighters have this avenue to make some extra dough It seems like it seems like they like it and it seems like also treats them very well. They make pretty decent paychecks. I think it's pretty cool. I want grappling the catch on. I mean I had a blast at quintet gun the last two I've really like for this to catch on. They had a tag team of Kyle. Bom and Vinnie. Meghalaya's versus Craig Jones and Nicki Rodriguez bomb and Rodriguez defeated them via escape time Ritchie Martinez by the way defeated Jake Shields Austin Vanda Ford. Better known as page Van. Zandt husband but by the way I don't want to disrespect wonderful forty. I've seen them fighting a couple times once a final fight in over a belt or he's good man he really is and they know it's contenders that's right. Yeah He defeated Mike Break Field and then other than that. Some of the other names he really really wouldn't recognize unless you're hardcore but check it out the the results are there on enemy junkie but some enemy folk were part of this card. So that's why I wanted to give him some love. All right with that goes basically at this point. We'll on Thursday show we'll address Figueredo versus Pretty cool right. Finally a bright light on the flyweights after all they've been through here in the AFC they'll have themselves a champ. This is for the vacant. Uc flyweight title. Out in Norfolk Virginia And then that's followed up by Israel out of signing residual. Ramon it's GONNA get cooking here with that folks. Were out here. Follow us on twitter and instagram. Adam agent George goes after does the radio show is at ever made junkie radio. Thank you very much for your support. Go out there and be a champion.

UF322: Curtis Blaydes, Don Madge, Robbie Fox, UFC 242 Preview

"A mess a mess as my tongue make some noise for the matching welcome confusing unfiltered robbie fox's my guest host or is it barstool robby robby fox okay cool. Thanks for coming in mad is an abu dhabi. He's got someone fighting over there so he's been gone. He's been gone for a long time. Normally guys go three or four days but i think fluid on sunday. I don't know if he wanted to just work out there or if he just wanted to get there early and hang well. I think they're doing looking forward to a fight with dana white. Oh you're looking for a fight. Yes they are actually. I saw davis promo. You're right. I would love love to do what a fun gig. That is. Oh definitely yeah. I mean they fuck around. They do right yeah which is kind of what we do at our still so i can't complain too much but yeah sometimes you look at the will you make a living and you like. It's not bad not bad. This is not an interview fighters. Do radio dumb shit. You know fans would love to do this. It's nice to be a fan of it. Oh definitely yeah. I don't know how anybody goes into sports. Jon anik was a sports guy before you great sports car like he can just about any sport huge boston sports got to yes and anything they talked about they could talk about with authority but do you love fighting or do you love baseball or which you know. I couldn't do it if i didn't have any interest in it. No agreed agreed agreed enemies the only one where i really like really get in and know every character every story line like know everything about it know everything about the game. Have you lost interest in. I love football. I loved baseball and i've kind of lost interest. Since i started watching you have seen i definitely have since i started like especially since i started blogging it where it starts taking taking priority over things but i'm a huge yankee fan huge ranger fan so it's like i go hockey baseball and then everything else. I'm a redskins fan so i don't know don't ask it's been rough and next van which as you know is the same thing so m._m._a. Is now taking pretty much. The main focus i'll come around to hockey and baseball compla- often you know for me. It was like interviewing the fighters we first started talking to these guys in jail brought somebody in i think from in two thousand and five however sexy brought somebody onto open. Anthony had a mild interest in but once you start interviewing the fighters as as time goes on you like i like them more than other athletes like the humble they were really you know it was like ladele and rampage rashad or all those guys from two thousand eight two thousand nine and they were all friendly guys like none of them were dick's and you interview a fucking a basketball player or baseball player that can with their sunglasses on sitting back well. There's gotta be ah humility to being a fighter right in the stakes are so high in that a loss on the court is like era. We'll i'm going to go to bed tonight will wake up. We'll try to get a win tomorrow. In an yeah you get knocked out like that. Is you get knocked out on pay per view. That's way bigger so i think maybe maybe it humbles some people yeah and also they have nothing to prove and also just being in the gym like being in a jujitsu jim and someone tapping you out like rogan talks about all the time. It's very humbling. It's very you know it. It grounds fighters. I guess so yeah it makes them easy and we have easy to talk to her say oh. We have don madge today if we can get a hold of them. I don't know much spoken to him. We also have curtis blades back on what listen i'm curtis was on. I should probably know that instead of asking asking fucking thin air and just do my job. I guess it was march of this year so it was a few months ago was that before or after <hes> his fight over justin willis don't remember because i know he had <hes> he had lost two in ghana. I thought we had talked to him right before then <hes> but he's saying in this promo. Actually we played that. He thinks he deserves the next heavyweight. Title shot obviously a j. D. s. will not be getting it after that terrible loss to to francis cormie ages lost. So what do you think huda steep bay fight next. It's kind of tough. The heavyweight division is kind of like murky waters right now because while we wait for cornea to decide whether or not he's retiring. We don't know what's happening next. If he's not retiring. I would love to see that rematch. I thought that was awesome. We discussed it. It's i would love to see that trilogy that would go down as one of the great heavyweight trip trilogies and <hes> if not though like blades kinda does have a rightful claim the issue for him. He's he's fighting the ranked number ten this weekend and he's ranked number four so it is one of those kind of no win fights where it's like. Can you give guy title shot after he beats number ten but does he have a shot over francis. Rematch and francis did go five around and again it was a domination but he went around and francis recently destroyed curtis artist and also jay and also came and it's like i think he's kinda under rematch yeah yeah he probably has he probably has an i wouldn't be opposed to seeing zinger rematch between francis and blades even though francis did destroy him that was november twenty eighteen. I think <hes> i think a rematch between those two would be very interesting yeah. I mean a third fight. I guess would be. I think francis wouldn't take that and i think he's been saying he wants a shot. I i wanted to see francis. I would love to have seen that fight because daniels smart fighter he would know obviously he's so good with <hes> again. Closing distance see you know he's probably always got although his arms are not sure i thought but he he's good at closing distance against guys like <hes> jones in that second. Do you want it to follow the game plan the game plan that he's straight from in the fight with stay so disappointed in myself so another opportunity ready to go in and listened to his coaches a little more implement. The wrestling i think would be interesting. Steve was fighting a weird fight to. He was really hard himself a salad wait a hard but you're not seeing. You couldn't get going like really against tomorrow's. We just couldn't couldn't get moving. Sometimes a guy like it's like any other day. You know you go to work sluggish and that guy you know. Unfortunately we're fighting. When you're sluggish another guy's kicking the shit idea in front of twenty thousand people and pay per view yes some days you have to be sluggish and and fight for the world championship and daniel cornea has been in that position in the past look at m._s._g. Against <hes> against derrick lewis or where he he blew out his back throughout his back with his knees that morning almost didn't fight you know so it's like the the struggles that fighters go through on entire fight weeks. Even even wait cuts insane. He did to fight anderson the guard democracy but that was vegas u._f._c. two hundred yeah i remember it was replacement fight and i i still to this day. Thing anderson took it easy on sell them with that kick. Nobody remember that kick where he kicked him in the stomach and and cormie started backing up holding his stomach and he just laid on him yeah mostly he's been laying and i always it's like academia could have done more damage on the ground. No one agrees. I i will agree with. You and i'll say i think didn't because the champ at that point so a loss there is like whoa. What does that do person. I think he was just playing it safe and so we took the fight on a couple of days notice and i always thought that he didn't wanna hurt anderson more than he had to and again. I know i'm i'm just being a fucking idealistic idiot. I'll watch it again after everyone has told me. I'm a fool somebody agreed with me and i don't remember who i sucker somebody into agreeing with me. I don't remember remember who it was. The most people complete ask people said that about style bender when he fought a silver. They were like style took it easy on him. He didn't wanna finish him this that the next thing. I don't really think that was the case. I think style guy on his way to a title shot at the time was very much wanting to finish. If you could get one i agree and i think that he had a lot more opposite again. Dan you know was the champion but still i think that i don't think saw the undertook it easy on him at all and i also thought that brunton beat silva in brooklyn. I thought that was terrible decision. <hes> i love anderson but i thought that dr brunson got really fucked in that. I thought that was really unfair. What are we talking about. Losing my mind as i get older we were talking about <hes> getting getting another shot at the heavyweight heavyweight title john jones going to. I don't wanna see them fight again at light heavyweight. Although that's probably what's going to happen now that he's lost. But what do you think cormier can make two. Oh five. It's always been such a rough cut for him now. He's getting a little bit older. He's got the back issues like i dunno. If gourmet wants to make five obviously you've put a certain number in front of him and he'll try but does he wanna make it. Maybe not but again what's his alternative. He's not gonna get a rematch immediately. <hes> they're gonna give it to somebody like <hes>. I think francis isn't the next shot at steep yup because again even though it was a complete mismatch as far as the ability to <hes> terrestrial and steve day was so smart and that fight he did go five rounds with them which nobody thought i jokingly said i. I'm gonna take one of the my decision and of course i couldn't goof. They were shot. There were hints of you know excellence in that first round in terms of like that was one of the most entertaining rounds i've ever seen in my life yeah and he did land on c. Pay a little bit too. I did really the i think it did. Stupid is very tough. I don't know how many how many france shots you take yeah and he wouldn't gwynne too. I wonder what he'd go into a second steepest part light as he was because he came in kind of light against daniel which i guess that was a strategy to fast form. He came in way later than he did last time too. I think both of them looked at it and said i guess speed is what is important here right see. I don't know what's going to happen. I think is gonna fight. Jones light-heavyweight because jones keeps saying wants to come up and he's calling out brockett. I look i get it. It's a huge fight fight in the a._f._c. again. I just don't there's other guys. I would rather rather see who i think have earned the shot again. Money is money though so yeah why that you'd book that fight. That's that's an interesting fight for me. I don't wanna see brock fight for title but a super super fight like that i would i would be interested in also huge wrestling fan. You all can get rock out of the ring. I don't wanna see brock wrestle anymore so if if you could get him out of the ring and put them in the octagon. I would love that if he was only in the octagon. I would be interested but i don't like this. Pop it in every couple of years and you know i just either fight or fight easy for me to say of course but i mean obvious i sit here comfortably eating an become training flight. Don't fight brock fighter. Don't fight. Could you pass the pretzel yeah. I am a dish so i don't know yeah. That's kind of what i want to see and we have a tremendous and i'm so site because i'm in buffalo performing this weekend. I'm doing doing gigs so sometimes have to watch the fight on replay and like an asshole last week. I looked at instagram before i watch on the china card. I didn't know how it happened. I just saw like fuck so i try not to but next week i can watch live because it's going to be on the afternoon two pm on the east coast of maine clarkson career on the east coast so <hes> tremendously interesting fight. What do you think <hes> about obviously start with the main event. <hes> could could be begins dustin poirier this is this is an awesome fight and i've actually been getting some like interesting vibes fight week because i've seen seen a lot of people predict for the upset here. I've seen i think michael bist being predicted. It think chill sonnen predicted it a ton of people that i've time norton predicted jim norton and are you going for. Wow that see. That's super interesting to me but it's like and it's always you know everyone's always they look like the best of all time until they aren't but habib be busy just so next level for me like as on a hell of a run as one of the best runs in light heavyweight or lightweight history and just said you know if i beat habib. I'll be the greatest one fifty five or of all time he could definitely make a claim for it if he beats a beep if he beats him in abu dhabi in enemy territory. I'm excited for the atmosphere that fight more than anything. I think think i think the big fight field it's going to be what do you think that will be at four four thirty something like that in the afternoon so it'll it'll be very interesting to see and i think it's going to be kind of habib's habib's like coming out. Party is a big draw of himself because i've seen that numbers are already projected really high for this day and has already posted about it and i think the the world will be tuning into this yeah but it's one of those things where sometimes that pressure works for you and other times. It becomes a bit overwhelming like again. You know talk about title fights. Eddie alvarez is fighting connor in the garden. I was at that fight. It felt like literally a home fight for connor and in a way for eddie's from philly and sometimes the moment i think can again. I'm not saying it will be for you know. I know it's just like saying could be better. It's more saturday. I go back and forth to hand because i know habib and yet cubby just feels better because the case that's why cursor curses off case but for him i again he handles pressure well but you look at what ally acquainted with zero preparation yeah and again it it could be one fucking fifty forty five but hours to me that much trouble and was incredibly aggressive and he didn't get tangled up on the floor and smothered and beaten he fought a good fight considering had no trauma training for paul felder fucking can when five with with and again i've said it before too so forgive the redundancy but connor going into the fourth round <hes>. I really do think that <hes> has a great shot at landing on on <hes> on him early in the first couple of rounds <hes> stopping him. We'll look at the pressure that forty eight put on holloway. Holloway is is one of the best strikers in the u._f._c. without a doubt. Obviously he came up from one hundred five emporia looked massive in their compared to holloway but the pressure he put on them was so crazy that he is not going to get tired. I think can go five rounds and be completely fine so if he does that also a little x. factor for habib i <hes> i fight with his dad and in his corner. That's really that adds extra pressure for him. Maybe that helps them out a little more. We'll see oh you see and his corner. They always say follow the father plan. That's what they say to him. So it's like his father's always spiritually. They're right at this time. He'll actually be there. It's interesting but but the question is can go five covey browns which means being fucking smother. There's nothing more uncomfortable than watching him on top of somebody somebody when their legs were tied up. I know when they're when they're in between his his legs. I just re watch. The michael johnson fight which you were that was at m._s._g. When he's talking to michael johnson then he's got his legs tied up and he's saying come on give up. You know i have to fight for this. You know this already and he's talking to dana that is the most terrifying thing in the entire world and also the u._f._c. just reposted justed on their youtube channel the full fight conor and habib so i watched that again and they posted some new angles of the brawls some new <hes> close and there's a historical moment. Dana tells them listen. I can't put the title on this gone five do that. People will start throwing garbage in the octagon. People will get hurt and he says brother. I'm ready for this. He just he just wants to do it. A beaver leave everything about him kind of makes me laugh even when he went to the post fight press conference maybe eight minutes after the bronze and why are we still talking about this. The greatest in the world conner most killed people on that bus he he cracks me up yeah. I think i predicted habib with a victory here. I think i think by decision. I think it will last the full five okay either way. I'm really really looking forward to it and another fight and this is a hard one because i like both of these guys so much i love that timber boza and i love paul felder and i think barboza's bose's undoing tends to be guys that put him on the ground <hes> hard time against kevin lee against felder i mean how does anybody not like like paul. Felder enjoy watching this fucking animal and especially after you hear him comedy and you hear the kind of person is how do you not get behind him and root form and every fight going on ford yeah. I'm just looking so i as we talk as parise record and again. I knew he was on a tear after that. Michael johnson loss crazy crazy but when you look at beating a hollow alvarez to me the most impressive to our pederson h. e. just engage finish engaging finishing him. <hes> i mean he is still working on okay why this is how dumb i._m. Fucking this dope they write the note because this were talking will read. It and i read it out loud like it's literally like if we were married. You kicked under the table and i said yeah. Why are you kidding. I'm a stupid asshole and i apologized justin gage. Anything lined up. He may i yeah cowboy cowboy in two weeks goddamn and i love watching him fight remain event and i would by it involved. Is that the main event yes but it say that that one is on t._v. or e._s._p._n. Plus yeah he had lost. Here's tracy lost alvarez emporia okay and then be zik and barboza knocked out both both both guys so i kinda love watching him again even if he loses entertaining or boza no just oh justin yes yeah i love barboza another guy like that though i i really loved what nate diaz said about picking and where he miles per gallon picking anthony pettus as opponents about a thinking back to playing street fighter as a kid being like that guy looks cool as he is the coolest moves. That guy looks the coolest. He is the coolest moves. I want to see them fight. Both of these guys are like that to me. Were edson. Barboza and paul felt like i would watch them fight anybody. You put against each other. I think fighter tonight right here. Yeah it was is like when <hes> when perry punts i'd want to see that fight for so long and then finally they finally did it. You know as far as macedonia fighting thank against nate. I think that's a mistake from astronaut again. I've said this before too. You have to have confidence in yourself but don't derail. Will you first of all. He deserves it. More than nate does even though nate's a bigger name because that liane edwards has looked incredible and the fact of him and fucking mastrodonato got the ball the legitimate hatred of each other and he's ranked higher and he's been he's been more active and he's he's been winning. I think that's a bad fight from astronaut to take too because he's got to be in line for the winter. He has to be in line for the winner of fucking competition who who also be on the line he i guess he does have to be at the same time that that nathan has fight probably makes them more money than that title fight right and at the end of his career it's maybe it's a balance of what he cares about more but that fight is the d._s. Fights their meaning meaning. He fights for the championship if he loses people still want to find an ideas see if ideas true if he wins then he's the champion and maybe e._s. has one more fight and earns a side of the title so maybe it's one more fight for d. as mash vidal kinda weights out because he just fought the fight the winner of of a cutting twos and then fights the winner of that and then if d wins his fight again. I do all this batch. You're making a lot of sense right. Now is wrong but when nate diaz wants to fight. I'm like just get get them in the octagon as quickly as you can get them in the octagon and no no issues like let's book the fight for next week and let them fight next week. I'm afraid that you know they're going to put this off in the navy as we're not going to see him for another the three will give nate the connor trilogy which again is not is not on my radar but if they wanna do it i'd watch it give nate and connor the fight because connors not fighting for a belt <hes> anytime soon <hes> at least. I don't think so well that was i was. I was going to bring up. I don't know if you saw the <hes> the tony ferguson interview yesterday he did with halawani but tony ferguson mentioned that he's promised the winner of this fight completely deserved and he said he thinks that mcgregor is going to be getting the loser of this fight. I look at that. I look at mcgregor not really making any mention of nate and mas val the night they are the night nate you know made the call out and didn't mention mcgregor. He didn't tweet anything about the fights he usually is. I think he he is locked in on getting his title shot back and i think dana has probably told him you know we'll do a little tournament here. Where tony will get the winner. You will get the loser and if you beat the loser you get your next in line for the title. That's that's what i think is going on. There's also the rumors you know coming up here and there that maybe mcgregor wants to fight at m._s._g. See the aldo's coming back into the mix but we'll see about that guy. I'm more focused on chosen more focused on me and i don't think i don't think it would give connor rematch right now. I think that here's maybe connor weights and if if pourri wins even o'connor lost habibie still may get at the show even though ferguson was promised ferguson deserves it connery us anybody's a massive money show the show the highlight of like connor knockin amounts like look knocked the champ out out you know what can you do it again right. How how do you how do you sell it for. Five fans at ferguson's not getting the shot yet sell it. You give him habib and you're like this is the fight that we've tried to book a thousand times. We're finally giving it to you on the undercard or something. Would you take that or no. I don't think so i think i think it'd be so insulting to knock give him the title shot after after all this yeah connor and habib not as a title fight. I don't see that happening at all. No definitely not there's too much unless it's like. They're both like forty forty. They still hate each other and they do the grudge fester stallone and deniro yeah yeah con connor losing to hubby began not for title is zero upside and so. I think that he'll take a nate fight. That's my guess he will fight nate again in the trilogy and i'm not interested in another connor habib fight. I don't know how familiar you are with. How a deep. Mike connor phantom runs or you love him. I love connor. He's my favorite. I've protect protested his court dates. I had i had to go to court. I got a whole summons for unreasonable poise outside his court dates. It's a whole thing connor. I wanna see fight. Guys like edson. Barboza fight guys like paul felder guys like nate diaz anthony pedestal poor. Ya i wanna see interesting. Striking match ups that are gonna be fun fights. I don't wanna see him. Fight these wrestlers that are gonna take him down and try to fight their fight like at this point got nothing else to prove. Go fight some fun fights. Make third the rest of your money and get out of the game yeah i. I have mixed feelings about him. I respect. I don't love connor at all but i i respect him. A lot of fighter and i think people forget how good of a fighter he is because he fell but he's gotta stop with this shit. That's smashing a phone fucking hitting some agreed you starting to fall into that and say john jones lost lost a couple of prime years 'cause nonsense and it's like they still very young and he's got a career ahead of him but it's like what are you doing and you're like you had the biggest. You probably the biggest athlete the sports. It's the path that so many fighters go down so it's tough to watch especially when it's like one of your guys and connors guy that came to superstardom. He rose to superstardom so quickly. It's like it feels like it happened overnight where he's a superstar and then all of a sudden he's going down the path. Yeah oh wow okay we we. We don't have any <hes> <hes>. We don't have any <hes> skype or anything like that. It's blocked all okay don match how you doing. I'm good. How are you doing very well. L. and you're in abu dhabi obviously. How long have you been there. We've been here suicide since yesterday yesterday morning. And what kind of time adjustment is that for where you live. I i'm not sure where you live fulltime. I live in johannesburg south africa. It's actually only two hours ahead so it's pretty much on the same same time line. That's nice okay and what is what does johannesburg like. I've heard that parts of it are beautiful and parts of it are kind of dangerous. I've never spent any time in south africa <hes> south africa's already. It's a beautiful place it. I mean like most countries has ups and downs. We we do struggle with with crime which is a bit of a of a disappointing one but otherwise other than that you know. He's a beautiful place and i. I love to call it my home okay. Have you been to the states yet i have i have a california <hes> california twice since vegas. <hes> <hes> <hes> been out there with <hes> chris is helping camps okay and when you went to vegas for the first time is this some kind of a what is it like to be in las vegas for the first time as an adult yeah it's it was it was a bit of a shock to me now because i i've never been to any place like that before <hes> but i was i was i was there for for business or any day to to party but <hes> i if you look back to. I definitely going back and having a good time in vegas. Yeah i was differ business as well but it didn't stop me. Making phone calls at two o'clock in the morning shouldn't have made and ask you about abu dhabi. Are you doing anything when you're there. I'm always sommes like guys like be because before if i have to work i won't do anything before i do when i get to the town. Do you do anything when you get there to just sit and hotel or do you actually go out and explore. I'm i'm i. I like to just just relax. You know train. I train a lot when i'm back home and i really ever get much time to to just unwind and relax so i use i use fight week as my my downtime and then <hes> obviously on saturday nights i have to. I have to do my job and then i'll explore. I'm here for a couple a couple of days off to the fights so i'm gonna explore so <hes> explore the place a little bit okay. I think everyone's really looking forward to seeing you. Get back in the octagon. You know it's been almost a year since you fought. You took some time off as you mentioned to help. Chris cyborg trained for her bout against a man news. What was that decision like you know taking time off yourself and kind of helping a training partner <hes> well you know i i helped her for her her original with <hes> hardly home in two thousand seventeen and that's actually how i got to know her and <hes> she she she she in part is is a big big reason why i'm in the u._s. You know i think being out there with helping her with that. Camp got exposure for me and helped me get into the u._c.'s so you know i i i'm. I'm always i'm always ready to to help people that have been good to me so often my friends i fly to california pretty much like three days off to optima optima fights and <hes> i was there for two months so i didn't really have time to get into my own training camp and then i had some <hes> some managerial sort of changes in my lifestyle i was kind of on the put on ice for a little while then injuries etc etc so definitely wasn't my choice to wait this long to get a five but now that i'm now avenue. I'm back. I'm different than try and stay more active and the fight with amanda that cyborg had obviously you know look anybody can get caught. I think amanda might hit a little harder than people expect. What what do you think happened in that did did. She underestimate amanda striking a different plant. What do you think happened besides her just getting caught <hes> honestly. If i'm going to be completely honest i i think she just got emotional and <hes> you know as as a emotion is probably your your your could be your biggest tool your biggest weakness i think for her emotional in the fights and <hes> and that's that's what cost you said recently that your opponent would be lucky to make it out of the first round with you on saturday. Eh moe's interested. You've got a short notice opponent. Do you feel more pressure to finish him. Being he is a short notice opponent my opponent's or ah anyone that i'm fighting or whatever scenario that i'm in doesn't appreciate me. I appreciate myself. I prepare myself very soon. Step in there and the reason i say he's left to get out of the first job means because everyone's actually get out of the first round with me if you look at my record most of my finishes in the first round and i come out to finish guys in the first round so <hes> you know if he gets the first round with meeting good good good for him and <hes> you know he been he been praying that i don't <hes> i don't. I don't put him away early. In the second and you took a year off. You never see any kind of injury as you are helping chris or did you took off just a helper something going on with you that you figured hey now that i'm off i can i can help her and and do kill two birds who wants to own <hes> so it straight off to the fight. I didn't have any injuries out there helping her and <hes> you know i'm the i'm the type of guy likes to be prepared for fights i like to i like to put it in a camp and is to be with my team with my courage etcetera so i didn't i wasn't gonna try and sort of do my camp in the states and then take another the fights i wanted to get back and get back into t and then obviously we're not to get back out a couple couple of niggles a few nick injuries etc but <hes> you know it's part of the sports you know no one. No one ever goes five hundred percents. That's part of the game but it's it was it was more. It was more just about <hes> <hes> the changing of management companies and stuff that that kind of put me on ice. I meant to ask your original opponent mog amid mustafay he he dropped out. It wasn't disclosed. Why are you aware while he dropped out of this. I i'm i'm still not a hundred percent sure pioneered some health issues <hes> when when i got the call originally he i was told that i was injured and they and they got back to me and they're like no might be thing and then i was like well okay. Let's see what happened. Often with those contacted and i was told that it was health issue so i'm not i'm not exactly sure i know that he did put out a statement about what had happened to him but the exact details win undisclosed it's written here so i hope that's right now. Do you pay your fingernails. Yes i do okay. Is there the reason behind that or a significance <hes> you know. This is the reason why you know people are asking. You're you're. You're interested runs. Everyone keeps asking me while i'm at why i'm painting. My nails tells you know you know what that does for me and it just brings one into me and my fight okay. We'll call it. Do you paint them black black. Hell yeah sometimes yeah because i paint my nails black when i when when i play bass onstage deal pain goal blue or whatever you know for the fight i like. I like to keep a black now. Has anybody commented on it or try to use it against you or i guess it's like catchy. You sound like you get caught without socks and you tell us a little bit different well. Yeah i mean i've i've had i've had a couple of people that say some comments about as whatever it doesn't matter because they like most of the time if i if i've been opponents and he said something about it you know if you get into the octagon with me that's getting there with me and five and if you call someone like a wuss or whatever because they wearing <hes> nail polish and you get your ass kicked by them more than you know who's really the worst then. I fucking love that yeah. I absolutely loved that whole mentality. You should paint that. If you really want to do it paint them red paint them red. That will really get into somebody's head because they'll be so angry going. I can't lose to him if he's got red nails. Maybe just like the ring finger you paint that one red and we know it's for unfiltered. Yes i'll do that. Pathetic read my radio maria pointing out to us. We deserved now. You said chris too emotional and you're probably right. Do you ever have that problem. <hes> do you ever like i've always talked about all the connor. When you see how somebody is so or angry or so upset about something they come in. They make a mistake <hes>. Do you try to take it in. Somebody's head like that or has anybody ever affected you like that now. I'm in generally no. I'm not really a an emotional type of guy like to. I like to look at everything <hes> from a sort of third person point of view. I try to take myself out of situations and it's the same then when i find when i don't see a person or body anything i i just have a goal and i have a mission to do and that's exactly what i do. And what did you do before you fought. I've only ever four now only job awesome. I am so i when i was <hes>. When i was fourteen i had my first my first moisture fights and i got out of the <hes> works out of the ring. I walked up to my mama. Mama professional fighter and that's all i've ever done from the re- my entire life as soon as i finish as soon as i finish school after china and i was living for four years and as soon as i got back from started wait you flew <hes> from johannesburg to thailand to train. I was actually living in capetown. I'm actually originally from case <hes> i actually i had to arrange first of all i. I've shot in my school career. Did <hes> my lost three years in two years just because i want to get done with school and so i can pursue my my fighting career and <hes> i had to get special authorization to write extra early said i can catch my flight todd had wurley so this is all. This is all i've ever done so as a kid before you're <unk> finding obviously. Is there something that motivated you to train to begin with four. I mean i've always been athletic. I've always always played sports <hes> but i've been doing martial law since oh six dollars you know i i i the first time i stepped into martial arts studio. I was six years old. I started with karachi and judah and <hes> and it just this kind of progression they you know he's been in martial arts and sports so i just kinda followed in everyone's footsteps and and how much did you get to a wrestling. Do you do oh man. That's all i do. That's all i do. I've been <hes> i'm. I'm almost a blackboard managed to <hes>. I've been doing this for ten years. <hes> <hes> i started i started while i was still fighting moi tie but it was more just like a hobby on the side of actually started when i was really young but i've aboard you know when your kids you're not really that interested in like learning techniques just wanna hit things and i did and <hes> but when i was doing my motech we always i was training jujitsu on the side but it was more just a hobby just because i enjoy martial arts in general but then as soon as i came back because started fulltime and i train man i change get two three times sometimes four times a day man. I'm i'm. I'm always on the math. I if you walk in. If you walk into my gym my team you always see me on the map. That's a great point to as a kid. It's much sexier the idea of just knocking somebody out with around how ca- kicker or a fucking punch then arm bar or you're improving proving position you know it's just not something that wants to hear. It's it's it is true. I mean it's it's it's. It's a mentality thing you know. I think i think everyone sort of you've veers towards certain things you know i was. I was a kid. I went to the hit people i went to the hit should onto the on to like get my emotions out. You know sorry you good. I'm choking. Sorry it keeps you take a noise so we know you're alive. I am killed a fighter by talking to them. Fast really would've been a bad bad luck or not. We wouldn't care about get fired this man. It's the first time we've had you on this show.

I was a big fan of the u._f._c. decided i wanted to start rolling and the guy listen to joe rogan podcast like crazy stuff like that that's bringing people into this world of martial arts but yeah and they all take mixed martial. I like this very few guys. Just take taekwondo or karate. They take everything now because you oh so you see a guy who's like twenty four twenty five and that's why a lot of the older fighters started having trouble with these fucking young guys because they do everything remember. When roy mcdonald was i like breaking on the scene that was like the big appeal of him. It's like this kid has been training. All of martial arts his entire life. He didn't start with one thing and transfer like he's been training mixed. Martial arts was his last fighting u._s._c. It was wonderboy. Yeah i think it was and it was kind of a boring like yeah and he's <hes>. He left the organization after that too yeah he is. He is with bell tower right now. Okay yeah. I always like to watch it him too. Yeah he's there. He's there welterweight champ. Oh yes all right good for him. I thought gee. I don't watch other organizations at all. I don't know why don't keep up. I mean they're all legit fighters. All you need is not even just legit fighters but you need good matches so we do like with a borstal. We rough and rowdy. It's backwards boxing with rednecks yeah he he contacts with so like you know they're horrible fighters but they're very entertaining fights because they're matched up perfectly that's right and when are they bare knuckle or no no so so it's amateur boxing so it's a sixteen ounce or fourteen ounce gloves and then had gear for some states no headgear for others and i'm sure he's a good because he's such a fuck and he's such a crazy person. I think he's incredible bill burr for me like he's kind of my generation of comedians. You know like all you guys. I think he's the funniest person that's ever walked. The face of the the bill is i think he's so funny and on big fan of his podcast especially even more than a standup. He's my favorite comedian but his podcast it just makes me laugh harder and that's how he he is with rough and rowdy. He sounds like the bill from his podcast. I feel like because he's just he's very chill. He just sits back watches the fights and makes funniest bill burr comments. He's amazing that he can talk that long alone and keep a flow going like it crazy eights week twice a week yeah. There's definitely something wrong with him because he does it well yeah. He's just so funny. He's so nuts occurs plays we have curtis blades run awesome. I really hate to oh. It's blocked. The internet's blocked skype bar. He's got to have one of the best nicknames all the u._f._c. right razor blades yeah. That's they kind of say. I guess it has to marshmallow blades. Farrell curtis happy blades. I would go curtis. Lightsaber blades roadwork well kind of sick man dirty reference where one of those razor blades is good. He's fighting shamila abdulah abdurakhimov. No you nailed that fifty fifty with the long name once you get that you can never not getting the role there and they are of course on the main card very very interesting acting fight curtis in his last three he <hes> t._k._o. Alistair and then lost to francis and then the decision is just all great great. We have our curtis. Hi curtis is here. Oh you're calling him. Oh yeah i was under the impression we got to go. Hello curtis ah curtis an interesting fighter too because he's so well rounded and you know he could knock yeah. He can knock out anyone in this division and then he also has the most take downs and heavyweight division history yeah. He's <hes> i was really i. I love in ghana but i was disappointed in that yeah last fight. I wanted to see what would happen if he like had. Francis improved his takedown defense at all. Apparently i mean yeah a booming for a little bit yeah but i i would like to see francis again. I wanted to see him have to deal with with exhibition fights teabag and you know that he's gonna get pressed up against the cage again. <hes> does he have any ability now to to stop that or turn that around sure. He's been working on it and the cardio. Obviously we want to see how long francis can last because his cardio left him very quickly against ebay it did but i also think he admitted this is why i like francis because he admitted he was overconfident. He underestimated his opponent. Which stay get had fought a very smart fight lay on. I'm just fucking. Put your two hundred and forty five pounds on top of him on his back in no thanks no one's done that to him yet. So i mean it was. It was a smart fight by stephen. I don't i don't know if you'd be able to do that again with francis be ready for that but even if you're ready for who knows and after you know with stanton that war withstanding the war he was in with daniel korea where they were just trading blows back and forth cudi sustain those shots again through even one around who knows yeah yeah well. It's amazing. He's lost three rounds badly and then he starts going to the body and i would love to ask what why were you not. Was there no defense for. I know as soon as he was like a video game you know when when you land something in a video game you start just button mashing thing over and over again every time you hit it. I was like yea even watching the replay at cringe and think about like the time. I got my appendix removed. I'm like that that was worse mind. I think very close. I was thinking i was eight. Yeah remember. I don't remember it'd be very sick ugly scar. I got i got. I got a little scar saw. You do see a younger age. The age doctors really piece me up back in nineteen seventy five open this little deuce band appendix out and that would ripped it out with their bare hands. They really did that. Was i think it was awake and i'm losing my francis ebay. Because we're ben curtis on that left again to me as i would love to ask <hes> steep a why he didn't think to do you that earlier and again i know in a fight it's hard to say but such an obvious weapon once he started you could see the look on his face just like every dreaded yeah and i don't think i didn't throne of kicks. I was surprised that he wasn't going to the legs enough and i would just love to ask korea. What what was going through your mind. Why didn't you shoot for take down or what was made because he was going in like with his hands down at one point like like he had no respect for doing this. Crazy crazy moves steep did knockout of verdun and he was the rain the case another one dot over him. I would love to ask again. What are you asking fighter. Why did you do that sometimes. They say you know it's always twenty twenty twenty for some people sometimes they don't know but yeah. We have a kurdish blades. Hello curtis how you doing man. I'm doing very well. How are you sir. I'm good. I'm good now. I ask everyone we talk to them. How long have you been in abu dhabi. It's been about twenty believe almost all you just got there okay. Some guys went on a little early now. Do you have an adjustment period when you go somewhere or do you like to just kind of relaxed or you person that goes out and sees everything everything. I guess it just depends on a day. I'm not i don't want to have any plans or anything. Just spread the moment uh-huh and i think the last time we talked to you is before i could be incorrect. Oh no was it after the last frejus fine. I just don't remember it might have been after the the fight but you did well against a full against justin willis and now after that lost a francis it was it was it would have been easy for some guys to get kind of disheartened. So what did you do to you kind of. Get yourself ready for this next fight and not allow it to get to you. <hes> i think we did <hes> speak at that. I mean and i got over it like both or i got back back to the states. I mean it just a part of the game <hes> when you're gonna get high level guys and he is a high level so that you can lose you can win or you could lose and he just happened to be the better man at a okay yeah we probably did. This memory sucks so long three the questions. I'm going to ask you in five minutes wanted to abu dhabi on so curtis you beat justin willis you put on a great performance and and then you get offered this fight against shamila. I'm gonna try to pronounce his last name. Odder kamov guys are way better than i am. He's he's ranked number ten in the heavyweight division your ranked number for kind of a risky fight for you right because some people could look at this and say how could you move up from beating the number ten. What was the thought process like like getting off for this flight and then eventually accepting it and do you consider this risky for you now. It's not risky. I'm hey i i saw him. I live in so i need a paycheck can't can't be waiting around for a top four guida. Call me out so they offered me shamila djamil and you kinda indicating that you wanted the next shot at the belt now. You were saying that before this fight you you're saying if you win this fight you would you would like to get the the next shot at the title or do you think that steep is going to get because to me in ghana has looked so good recently after those losses too steep dark lewis. He's looked so good. I don't know who's going to get the title shot next. I don't think they give me an immediate rematch. So are you looking at maybe if they fight the winner of that fight or what's your thought to get a title shot. I have no idea like division right and now here's my brand even think about all the variable all the possibilities that could go. It could go a million ways. I could get a title shot. You can go to any gano go. They could give these these could agree with anthony johnson. I hear on the way back so or john jones who could about a up new possibilities right now you anthony johnson comeback heavyweight i think but i mean he has to at this backed up at tone since he left the giant giant man at this point yeah i but i don't think he has to fight probably twice before even being you just can't there's too many guys up kind of you'd be surprised. The u._f._c. loves the money before they do <hes> but i don't see even rumble as much as he's an exciting fighter. I don't see him coming in and being any more interesting than watching you fight somebody or dark lewis fight somebody our francis for junior who i have no idea derek win could be up there. Yeah oh yeah well. Yes yes especially. This is not the not the champion anymore. What did you think of the. I'm sure you watch other fights. What did you think of st bay and cornea. That was an interesting interesting fight especially how it ended yeah <hes>. I thought i went down. This fight was how it kind of go first time like i said it's suffice. You never really wanna win as how i had predicted. We'd go down when you look at a guy like call me. Who is this corner. Kinda wanted him to to wrestle. They wanted they wanted him to and have you been in those positions where your corner want you to do something that for some reason you're either mentally unable to physically incapable of doing that moment or you. Just it gets honest. He said there's something about punching somebody in the face. That feels good like he wanted. I think i'll in love with it. He fell in love with that. He wanted the knockout have have you fallen fallen into that way your corners telling you something and you find that. You're just feeling something else in the cage. I mean i have sometimes in practice. I can inspire around but no in the octagon during alive. I listened whatever they do. If they strike i'll strike it only put him on the floor. I put him on the floor or if they just leave it up to me. <hes> sometimes they just feel i know what to do this and and <hes> i listened to myself but whatever they if they give me a specific order. I'd do my best to carry out you do okay and even in the moment you'll make those adjustments like you know. I always amazed at fighters can hear the corner and actually make sense of what they're saying. Translate that either because you get everything he's in a millisecond and how well can you really hear the corner when the crowds going would probably be <hes> dorm alison i at the end of the first round we we have in that <hes> he'll look. I haven't been in that situation before. Mainly my ears hurt stuff and i could hear my my jujitsu you coach me <hes> step by step what to do grabbing the hands going both ways to get out and he worked so i always have belief in my coaches did i was never deliberately just ignore them and that's but that's incredible the ability to process it and make it work so fast the other guys hearing it definitely yeah. That's always been amazed brazilian. One guy you know rushing that's fine but when both guys speak english or both guys speak the same language grab his left hand. It's like i'm going to move my left. Hand yeah yeah but if you lose your move hand. That's what i want so then. It creates a scramble it either. He's gonna react and give me an operas opportunity scramble or he's not going to carry out the or my coach okay so you're not you're not necessarily focused on a shot at the title yet. Of course you would take it and you would like one but you but you know i'm not saying that you know shimmy or whatever happens happens but let's just say you do get the win. Is there anybody that you would have your eye on afterwards or would you be a fairly adamant about wanting a winner of ever steeper fights next <hes> honestly i yes it is fight. <hes> all goes well junior junior interesting that fight a lot yeah yeah. I think that's a good call out and then you think maybe if you'd be junior title shot. It'd be a lot more adamant about it. I would've breath like i've truly deserve it and by then a division were critical bit more and you are the heaviest favourite on this card lord. I dunno if you pay attention to odds and stuff like that as a fighter. Do you know you were you even aware that you were the heavy favorite on the card. Look at odds not into abetted all right. I guess fuck it then. We'll move on give. It really isn't gambling thing like i. It's it is very gambling. I was just always curious. I used to see whether or not a special and fighter's his huge underdogs like are they coming in super insulted with a chip on their shoulder like if you're a heavy favourite like fuck better when these people their money like love live era i think old times i've taught in gone so just vegas knows about yeah. I mean it and again. Obviously your plan on a guy francis. When you watch what steve did is to get in and take them down or push them up against the cage but it's obviously easier is your said than done. I mean it's a great strategy but you know there's obviously he's he's not gonna. He's gonna object to that. I mean that's that's how i feel. I need to do we when we do it again. I need to get him on the ground or at least get him on occasion. Gas malkhas with everyone knows is not. I believe secret. He doesn't have the best conditioning in the world. Yeah it'd be interesting to see because if he has improved that at all or has he done anything for that you think i think he believes that right hand hidden and i don't blame them about i think he he just believes in this. She's like what do i do you cardio. I wonder because i just before we talked to you. Spoke he liked about francis was his honesty after the loss which was admitting that he underestimated his opponent own and most guys won't do that. Most guys wouldn't underestimate the fucking you know the reigning champion but i mean the fact that he was honest about that and then when you saw him play dark he louis how people doing because nobody really wanted to pull the trigger lewis said he had a bad back but then against yourself and against a junior and cane he seems to have just kind kind of something clicked for him and maybe it is belief in the right hand. I don't know but i hope that he wouldn't be foolish enough to to not have at least worked on that and that that could happen to him again. Either with a guy like you are steeping keeping up against the cage. I mean i think is it's just hard to teach old dogs new tricks. He's been getting by having bad conditioning for majority of his career was kind of hard just to flip a switch and conditioning heavyweight. Wait is is not very hard. I we're big guys. It's very hard to move our bodies up and down bows and getting up and down and a lot of big guys. Just don't wanna wanna do it. That's why you don't see that many heavyweights i at this level because not allowed to do so. We even have the conditioning of in ghana. I is just most most guys just want to stand in being 'cause it's easier just to swing your arms and it is to like move on the ground and get up and get up and down and all that stuff so that's why i like the best condition heavyweight in the game right now. I i have no problem grinding guys out for if teams twenty five minutes what style sorry what is your least favorite thing to do when you train lifting weight lifting same really now. Why is that. Is it boring or is it just because they're heavy. I mean what i never been immediate. I never been to get in the gym and just i'm one of the guys who i i need a coach to like horse to pick up a weight. I don't like to lift weights. Well this man. It's always good watching you fight. You're on the main card and as robbie said you are the most heavily again not so that means anything to you but good luck. This be interested to see how i would like to see you. Get what you want this this saturday just to see if you get a junior after and then what happens after that you obviously not going anywhere so you're going to be time for a long time. Thank you curtis. It's always good talking to you man and and <hes> and good luck on saturday. I hope you do well. Thank you appreciate that take. Today's episode is brought to you by devour pizza.

Do you think he would paint a fingernail for us. I didn't think to ask them. I didn't i think i would know left-field somebody's already painting the change color but ask around like curtis blades females say probably not yeah nominee would come through this earphone punch me somehow yeah. I've seen him in person once. I've been next to him while he's a giant but they're i mean they're all puglia. We had francis in once and i like a six year old. His fist is the size of my head. I interviewed him and literally made him show the camera. May i said put your fist to my head. He confused the shit out of them. I don't think he likes me for it but we made it happen. Isn't it crazy as a male when you look at that's what the species has to offer god like my genetic competition and the same on the same human were the same organism yeah come on competing if you look at an animal level like you're competing with guys like francis and kane and junior and all these guys are condition. You're not competing. We're not competing. There's not impeding going on the scale of animals like you don't like as far as being human the animal we are in competition to seed and to seek. I i guess so losing the competition. We all have these little things you know what i mean i. I like my glasses. That's why god gives bad eyesight or nature ban eyesight early so so we all know where we stand even it out yeah francis you get the you get the left hook. I get the minus six point seven five vision listen man <hes> so you think it's going to be <hes> habibie taking barbosa fell. Do let's just do the whole car yeah i like. I like your yeah kind of do too. Although i mean he does throw leg kicks <hes> but barbosa. I love watching guys who kick. I love watching guy who ruined guys legs josie aldo. He just hasn't done it like he used to. I don't know why they stop unless they're afraid that the two vulnerable to to be hit after a kick i i don't know the game has has changed a little bit to where and and robin black talked about this too where like joe's aldo was at the top of the world as featherweight champ of the world like m._m._a. Was entering that. What kind of brazilian brazilians were coming in implementing the like leg kick. You like heck may elect kick you then we start to do it. A little exchange like has moved away from that a little bit in that. I think people people are getting way better disrupting the timing of people trying to throw light guy so i think people are getting used to it and you're seeing less of it. I'm sure it will eventually catch up and we'll see more of them and then people will get better. Are you know doing that but you know young sport. Yeah you watch enough also via the people catching leg kicks interest in civil. Wiedeman video probably does not inspire. Are you to throw a no discussing. I love when people could throw the question mark kick anyone. That could throw a question. Mark is like a great fighter in my my. What is who's the last one i wanna. I wanna say it was wonder boys. Last month i mean holly holly could definitely throw well. Yes <hes> she threw it against beth beco- heya knocked her out with it. <hes> uh-huh holly that shevchenko is over. I was just a pretty standard had cac brutal really brutal yeah which by the way we had a we had a title. It'll change over the weekend in straight division. That's right straight divisions one of the best divisions in the a._f._c. I think yeah and i did. I don't think i had the right round but i did pick <hes> john to win that fight even the comb event. You picked out leach. Yeah i again her. I didn't see on drugs getting knocked out in the first round. I might have been second or third <hes> but she's just too. I would love to know what she walks around at because she's so compact she literally has if if there wasn't a female version of henry suharto the build shows like that type of ability i would love to know what is this a a hard cut for her to make or she naturally close to this way and and just you know well-defined because again you mentioned before we start about her against <hes> valentina which would be really interesting really cool yeah but he's not a big jump up for her or is that more close to her natural walk around and also for me. I would love to see that one day right now. I would love to see just like settle things in the hallway visu. Do the title fights when you have like a heavyweight title doc situation going on right now where it's like. Who are we going to give this title shot to or you know the john jones thing where it's like. Maybe he moves up. We got rose nama eunice. We got yana michelle waterson. Jason tatyana swore as you know. I'm sure i'm forgetting tone going back just to like even when you wanna was the reigning champ we thought she was the greatest women's fighter ever you know other other than maybe rowzee or whatever and then rose goes in shocks. The world knocks her out proved that it wasn't a fluke by beaten earn five round decision yeah and then on drudge goes in and and drops rose on her head and rose beating her in that first round annually grandma levels above her. I thought yeah get slammed on her head and now we got a new chant. Now we got another new champion. China that tom brady and the rock or you know given their well wishes to. She's going to be a massive global icon over there so it's <hes> it's an exciting time to be a fan of the sport. I would like to see oregon's rose. <hes> rose you when you expect her to <hes> to go to the ground i mean she stood up. No one expected her to beat you on it with punches a no one. You thought maybe you should get <hes> but i would like to see rose fight her next <hes> i think she deserves it. <hes> you know and then jessica fights may be. I don't know who she writes but you wanna against <hes> widely. Maybe not <hes> well. You wanna has a fight book right now against waterson okay so maybe the winner of that gets the winner. If rose decides i'm rose wants to fight right now for some let me think that she's not young to fight. Rose has been back and forth. She did just post a an instagram recently that like hinted at being in a training camp though so hopefully she's going to be back soon. I love watching flight. She's one of my favorites. I also fucking crazy pat. I know in honor yet the best well listen. Thank you for covering for matt appreciate it <hes>. It was really fun.

We're you now you already in Florida blue now when you went down there a little concerned about about being around other fighters or being camper how you handle this whole thing soon but the Jimmy Dante American Fixed Group for us and we contain several times So my time is like a deadlock in the morning I get doing forty five minutes. Go Out and fight his sin so kind of Good I. I'm sorry Jimmy. How being in quarantined training. That could be a good thing because you don't want to go out anyway. Keeps people from doing so bad things. Going the rest of the restaurants to go to rate how out partying it keeps you. In is how is your. How do you look at it with the Quarantine? Is You look at it quite like dad or for me? There's there's a normal the normal way we do our camp relevant fight gambling. Auditing I do mostly is like maybe go to? The movie is not like boarding or go into restaurants. Gabby it clean. We don't go out. Stay home but though if you wanna go out the going to movies and that's for us like home. How did you feel during the last fight was over him? Which you want. I mean literally with less than ten seconds left. How did you feel going into the fifth round? Because he was ahead he was doing very well. And what was your thoughts going into the fifth round of their fight. GonNa only give me kick India like A? If if we don't want him out GONNA lose the fight so we'll Salata Ziegler would depress undefined undefined opening and And then the ten seconds on the screaming last fifteen seconds in the cloud like Papa so I know is the less than seconds in the pressure. He is down now. Yeah how did you know you know he was Kayode? You did a Yoda Mark Hunt. Walk off where he was done before. The referee jumped in. You walked off and you know that might have won you the fight if that referee was a little hesitant. So what was your what was going through your mind you. This felt he was done no matter what 'cause you've seen as liquid you didn't see his lap or for me. I saw this aisle. So you've been down and away rendell. I don't always five to get well. I think soon as he hit the ground he woke up and any bounce up and if you see in the video also he doesn't come at me. He walked off the side. So I see this is US really down and you've been in the UFC. I guess what were your first. Finding of Albanian February of twenty nine thousand nine so a little over a year and people are already you and Francis saying that this should be some type of an interim heavyweight fight. You've really kind of rocketed up. Are you surprised at how fast things have? Your name has been mentioned. The top five guys. Yes and no. I'm being deficient now and donating. I WanNa do is recited and I want to get to the top no matter what so is going to now is going to be now snuggling up tomorrow and pedantic entitled to have revisionist Stop and I think that. Who deficient need that now. Now being that you you're coming off three stoppages of very good guys. That means you believe in your power but now you fight and Francis who is arguably the most powerful heavyweight ever. Does that change up the game plan or as far as you just believing in your power of knocking him out. Ni- going with a guy that's not everybody out also different strategy for good strategy Islam. I I I'm going to the guy like Francis and I got rid to dance with him. Yeah Yeah I mean because you possess the power obviously to hurt him as well. I'm sure he knows that you're giving up five inches and reach. Does that concern? You know? I don't know why I'm always obsessed with Francis is just so long and it seems that couple inches. It makes it harder for guys to get in. But you've so you're okay with that so As I always big gut bigger eyes than me. I'm like a small every so yeah. I'm doing this almost years and I always find big with your very first martial art. What was it? And how old were you muzzles like Emma myself anything traditional Allama through time was I was seventeen kickboxing and you walk past the gym. Or what got your interest. Alves had trouble with my friends on the fulfilled in these as you WANNA fight. You did it as a gym in and I started talking trash and I say who WanNa fight against me and I got my ask. Ano- saying okay coach and I say I want to be the guy and he say if you really want to do that you go train in this. I would start. When did you realize you had the power you had? Because again certain guys Roy Nelson spent all those years doing Jujitsu and then he just realized he cannot people out with his right. At what point did you realize that you have one punch knockout power? My coach always says to me like you cannot people out with your hands emulate so but the thing is as a young fight that you don't believe that you just do what you told and would you train so you believe in there. I think when I was my food is professional kick books fight NOCCO guile set around also at one point and then I stop believing that we start working and how was your nerves before that very first fight of yours amateur or professional amateur preferably I think goals notice how is it now in the UFC. Very first fighting a UFC. Was there a difference? 'cause a lot of times a lot of guys even if they have a lot of fights in the smaller shows the production of the. Afc would everybody behind your on five. And you're on in four and everybody's running in and the crowd it can get to fighters how was the difference when you've got your first fight Lucy but the electrical engineers was like Only one option decide and yeah the food's it all Will go with a little bit rusty get dominant and then the second goal you'll opening down. You said she was seventeen when you try to kick boxing. When will you I? What did you first get acquainted with the ground like Jujitsu? They'll to those in eleven awhile. And how did that happen? Was a sparring partner of a friend in Aruba Gregory Malone and he had a fight and then he asked me thinking for three weeks with him. Say Okay no problem. I go Iran and they start doing the DIGNAM defense. I also big body and the Guy. My friend used to fight A four kilogram smaller. You so he was using me to do you know and he did something and I guided defend myself and say hey do it again do it again. The show you have to decide that and that's how it go and I rolled in your joy. Did you did you took the kick. Boxing yeah even like MMA more than Gig wealthy more with me or you see a Lotta guys who just hit. Their weakness is getting kicked in the legs. Or if somebody shoots for take down so that you can do all those things and you do have big heavy kicks which. I think is a giant advantage especially the heavyweight division? Be Able to kick like you kick. I do I'm accomplished fighter It can't go anywhere. Maybe not that good at everyone but I can save myself. You have enough weapons. Where no matter what they do? Well you have something that you can counter it with it. They probably don't do as well finding a guy like over and you've coming off some huge knockouts and he's a pro allister's Ford everybody. He sold the former champion. He knows how when he's hurt. He knows how to get somebody up against the cage and get himself breath. So what's going through your mind like in the first round the second round when you're unable to put him away and you know that he's gone long and fights before you got it was. It was a three round fight. There's a three round fight right. So what goes through your mind right when you when you're getting into round three and he's just not going down for me everything that really fast In the fight is like and as wrong for so yeah Most of the files most individuals a little bit of frustration. Because every time I was Kinda have second to show so I was like okay. Let me see okay. Let me let me and of course he ever game plans always easy so I got it. He attack so I have to defend that end goal in full attack in my way. So yeah a little bit confused and then suddenly. I got the bullet against own visit. Am I also keep screaming at me? The openings in his legs so deadly his knees you know he's so good because he's He's so good putting his knees up and if I remember I haven't seen the fight sense of happened but if I remember right he was having some decent success with with with knees and then getting away just finding a really really the fight that you'd expect a veteran to fight against a stronger guy. You was he was. He hurt his knees because he's so powerful with his knees. What was he hurting you and where you prepared for that you had this opening. He had his opening but I was prepared for it and soon as he did something. I it's a fight so I know I know he's GonNa Committees Weapons and I know. Ls Or is therefore. Is there like forever and I know who he is and what he's done for the sport so I wasn't surprised we haven't gone who on Not this last time. But the time before and he was saying that there's no fights he's waiting for a fight waiting for a fight and I guess in the time you kind of I think you you want. Probably two fights in the in that period did you. Have your eye on Francis like a little bit earlier knowing that he's the guy you're gonNA have to get through if you WANNA fight steep may or may so was he a guy you were looking at a little earlier on. If he's in these he's in a position of the perfect spot to get the title shot and I know soon as I get up there is GonNa be there. So is the guy we need to defeat to get the show. And he's on an impressive run he you know. He looked unbeatable then Steep afford a brilliant fight against him and then he had that tough fight with Derek Lewis and then three straight knockout so whatever was going on with him he's back to fighting even think even better than he was fighting before the lost. Yeah I mean he's there to do stand. I'm here to mind so I'm ready to go my nine and I'm put him we had gone. Here's yeah I think everybody's looking this. The third fight there's two championship fights As the main and comb event your fight could be a obviously what's going to be a main event fight. Everybody is looking when you were growing up. You said that you had trouble on. The soccer field was it was in a bad area. You grew up in with their always fights. It's not a bad area. What boys do and dominant guy always wanted? People in soccer is another way to meet people. I'm happy I'm find his way and soon as I stopped much. Lots and lots of things a lot of places Showed me really discipline helped me in life? Also where where are you from originally soon? I'm not even sure where that is close to Brazil. Goes to grant is in the Caribbean. Oh okay so. Is that the first time you really traveled? Our good martial arts took you and Kinda showed you the world as much as well all right. Well listen this is a fight. Everybody's looking forward to you. Look incredible and your four you see fighting even even though Alastair was winning the fight the the fact that you came back and did that ten seconds left you really. There is no relaxing against you and I think that the over eating steak of just let his guard down for one second and you showed dangerous. You are Jimmy. May I add that Some heavyweights powerful heavyweights are very powerful and the very openings of or beginning around to do what you're Zamora just did at the end of the fight with how many seconds left a power to face altering power? Yeah that makes it very intriguing. So I can't wait for this fight. Neither man that must do a lot for your confidence to because no matter how the fight is going. If you're still standing you always know you have a chance but to have not not to have done that to him with that little time left. That's got a boost your confidence a lot like you're never out of a fight through. I feel good. I've always so confident. Memeber Halloween the fight when I have to say always ready to go and then you guys. Good luck may ninth We have loved every fight. You fought has been exciting. And I'm looking forward to Franson Ghana. The third fight on. May the Ninth Enough Florida. So I hope you stay healthy and I'm looking forward to watching you. The Anchorman you guys they say okay. You're talking to you take care. Thank you Buddy. Rose and strike. Yeah really really fun to watch and It's interesting anybody. The heavyweight division can probably knock anybody out when you see a guy who is that devastating with power fighting guy like in Ghana. Who's that devastating power? You know that in Ghana has to worry about him and and yes the worry about him for the full is is is a three of five. It's not free initial three rap. I was that's why I wasn't sure I forgot. The over in was the main event. There's a three round fight and then crews and who's Oh this there's guys that are powerful. But they do they do face. The power feeds just a little bit. He's shown that it doesn't so dangerous from Belva Bell so that's can. I don't know if that's going bell to bell. I don't want jinx it though. I'm just saying I'm knocking. Never know sometimes these fights against Derrick Lewis. Everyone expected to the best. Can I just add that since? Then you seen a different mentality. No matter who he thought and he took out two former champion since then yeah in in a jd US and came and Cain Velasquez so any did with the same metality that before our store over eight before before he looked so you know. I think he's mentality is fantastic. And obviously your Zeno. I'm not killing aimal do it right right. Yeah I think. So he's He's mentalities. He's just put away his last three guy. So man I'm ecstatic. There's no way that fights born. If so point come back. Appointed this is a matter in eighty eight. No I would never but but because I'm also expecting it to be. It's almost like whoever gets all. I like whoever lands the first couple of shots. I you know no matter how good your Chin is. It's going to be hard to take two or three shots from in Ghana and I think it's GonNa be hard to two or three shots from Rosa's strike so whoever whoever gets through I that's why the rich I know I seem obsessed with reach but with a guy like Francis I mean that's five inches is a tremendous amount of ground together but timing is crucial in his ways as a guy five six we used to fight it. Felt that welterweight. There's ways to come in Behind Your J. Double Triple Jab and yeah I this timing the way in where you can strike a guy obviously reached so I wanted to call me as a master of getting in and covering ground because he's usually never the biggest in the ring. I'm always so intrigued of not of what. What these fighters what the first discipline of what they started with right and also y the reasoning. Why like some people got bullied or some of them are like we took a toll frozen and he just wanted to try boxing? They will the McCarthy US I don't think ever through standing up you just fuck it. Takes guys down strangle. So it's just so now he's one of the most dangerous guys with so it's funny when you first see when they start always interesting I find. Yeah no I'm the same and I think that I'm always interested in what they were like. Growing up to draw because so many of them. I think the first time I remember hearing that was from a rampage interviewed years ago. And he was just talking about like you know guys kicking his ass when he was younger might have been someone in the family and these guys all have these these things that so many of us have they want to do something about it and they become fighters. I'm I've been somebody wrote to me. Jimmy I how I think I kept them can hopefully get confusing The whole getting smoke and getting shade and all that kind of notice not fucking older than you. I don't I don't know so so you know now you know what it is. I took a picture. I took a picture of half the things I can't do it. Okay here we go and This is from headquartered. Seventy five this is guy is on Instagram Romi. He goes chaos. Okay so when you and your buddies walking down the street and someone gets into dispute and you tell the other Guy Bro. You definitely don't want that smoke. Got That lead to support your buddy. You don't want that smoke. There's not so much be smoke on you. Oh Shit expression all the street and someone gets in a dispute. You tell the other. Go Bro. You don't want you definitely don't want that smell smoke old saying you don't want this heat you understand. I never said that either headquarters is telling going so. Thank you got no one I would say should front and I would say do me a favor. Sir. Please don't strike me. That's what I would say. It's very clear you don't have it. Not Generational I don't WanNa be. Clearly you don't get it. It goes through transcends. Everybody will know you don't want any. You don't want any heat be smoke. I don't WanNa keep tonight now. Do not might me? I don't want to be beaten up by the way but Okamoto video. He's pretty he's a big guy. I didn't realize that he was a bigger guy. I guess I think I'm the only one who's involved in any peripheral way of the UFC. This completely shut shape and literally took. It just started kickboxing cove. It hits everyone else seems to be in good shape person in this business. They couldn't strangle me including Jon Anik raw genetic. I think he trained Jon. Anik on genetic very fun guy. I'm like the talk him again. Much man living through a quarantine. How you make it how you handle it like mentally. This is something that works totally against your your nature or do you work with you. Oh I would say it goes against me a little bit in on like to be around different people and like my job. I like being on the road. I like doing commentary and traveling. And that's all taken away with this stuff going on right now. You know. I'm sorry it's about like balance right because you love your family but the balance of just going out to my school's back hanging out with Jimmy come. It's like it's it's all about balance it's like guard is that what a stir crazy bowl. I'm a little stir crazy. I just got a dog actually last week. So he's helped out with Kind of keeping me busy keeping me. What taking walks going outside? I have something else other than my. You know my daughter obviously too but this guy almost more of a pain in the butt to take care of then Ben Ben Affleck He. They said he's a Pitt but he looks like he's got might have something else. It's a little bigger. Let me see if I can flip this around here and show you just show you hear. Petey for the little rascals got some spots it looks like a cow on certain parts of the body. He's huge. He's eighty six pounds. Oh my God. He's A. Yeah Yeah I. I rescued him last week. Went and and we went there just to look and he wasn't even that friendly. I kinda like ignore and this is kind of being like a Dick and I'm like all right. Whatever I'm not gonNA save you then you know what I mean. I came here to help you out. And then he sat in his his Crate afterwards you know in in the rescue spot and he just started hitting us with the you know I'm about to cry is screw it. I'll take a risk and soon as we got him home and he was just a big huge baby. I mean he's just just happy to be out of their house around your daughter and everything. And how will you with that? I'm very. I'm like a worry? Wart will make Kia animals and I grew up with dogs always two dogs in the house. So I'm a very admiral person but I don't know man I get really really paranoid. You know as a father how. How do you get that? How do you get them acquainted and stuff? Well she went with me so she you know she was there. The whole time she met he came right up to her before it came up to anybody else. Let Liquor in the face and then just didn't even bother with so I was like okay. He's not and he. You know the place he was before had kids and the kids were great with him but he got into a fight with the dog. That was already. There said there was already an older dog who lived house. They adopted him brought him home. It worked out for a while and then they got into a scuffle over whether it was food or a toy there were both playing with and he didn't start it but he's a big guy so they both got roughed up. He's got scars all over his face. He's got you know marks on his legs and things like that so whatever whatever happened they they got after. That's they're both okay. Both dogs are okay but he got the you know the back end of the stick because he was just a new guy brought in and he's obviously a pit so anybody that sees that's going to be God I gotta go but I'm telling you he. He doesn't care in the world when I see other dogs on the street. Unless it's a big monster who's coming at him then he's like. Yeah I gotTa Watch myself but other little dogs. He doesn't care. Are you a good dog? Only I've never owned a dog before so I think to get an eighty six pound pit bull that's previously all probably. I should like have you had dog your life or you go with them. I've had dogs my whole life. Growing up My my family's always had dogs but this is my first venture into deciding to have one on my own and it's GonNa you know it's it's going with the amount that I travel but right now. That's all slow down that at least I could get him kind of acquainted everything then if things start to pick back up with with commentary and work maybe a fight. That'll be so far down the line he'll be already. You'll be comfortable here and we'll have that all figured out but Yeah just one of the dog. You also don't believe him home at your family when you're gone as a former protection in a way to like if you're on the road and you're not there to help a nobody Even though he's not a you know an aggressive did they don't know that you see in eighty six pound pit. You're going back okay. I'm the next house. Yeah that's out some risking it. You know so yeah it does. It makes me like all right. Nothing's happening to my stuff for my people while while I'm on the road you know if somebody comes in here I trust that. If he didn't trust him he'd be He'd be sinking. Some teeth to be had to do that. Anthony Smith Story. Get you a little bit like that. I mean that that was. That's a scary story craziness. That's not any of the reasons why I picked this guy up but yeah and like you know especially when people are fighting for their lives and that kind of situation imagined in front of your family. That's that's wild man and he had just put guns in a different place or something like that. I don't even have any so I. I don't even have that that option. I don't I don't have a gun but he put placing what couldn't get to it as our today. He said he said he's normally got them ready to go. And like a place that he knows about but I think it just clean them or he was like re he did something different. Had them locked up you know where it would take some time for him to go and get them and that guy was already in the house so he didn't really he said something about his guns but anyway yes scary. Scary Situation Policy Nella. Jimmy was saying earlier about you. Making the total like one eighty after your decision In the in the cage if your last fight and let me tell you because I know what it's like fighting before I had kids and then after I had kids because I had a couple of fights after after I had kids so I know the emotion finds motionless is it is but oh man. Is it different? Especially if you've been away from I knew exactly how you felt. Tell us the feeling 'cause I don't even before but tell us it wasn't like an on the moment decision right there. Mcgary man you do not on the fly or just your gut feeling what the fight ends super close fight really. Yes so for me. It was something I personally had had run through my mind a few times coming up to that fight that if this one doesn't work out I knew somewhere in there that there's a chance depending on how it went if I got knocked out I was done right then and there. I was walking away from the sport. Hooker put me to sleep. I'm done because that was the you know that would have been the the bad fight. I need to stay home with with with my daughter but since it was so close and you know I thought I did enough. But you know it's one of those fights he can't do anything about it. I it still felt like it's slowed down my momentum and I always kept telling myself and tell my family. The only reason I'm still doing this is is to become champion to be the best and when you lose a fight like that you know it's like Oh man while now now what so. I split second. Yeah I thought you know what I can't do this anymore. I can't be away for eight weeks at a time. Not See my daughter not see my family income all the way around the world and then you lose a decision and I'm not arguing. Do I think I won? Yeah of course. I'm a fighter. I'm in there. I always think I want but anybody out there. You know I I. I don't WanNa make it seem like I'm being a baby about it either. Like Hooker did his job. He fought a great fight. That had nothing to do with it. What have to do is like you guys are saying just the stress of being away and then you know that doesn't guarantee you a win. You know what I mean. It could have been worse to. I could have went all the way to New Zealand around. The World Gun. Slept in thirty seconds. Thank God that didn't happen. That's never happened. I mean this is amazing. Thing about you lost five fights three were by split decision. One was by decision and one was a doctor stoppage. Like you've never quit. I mean three split decisions means that you were this close that you could easily only have two losses on your record. That's not being a baby. That's that's that's those are closed fights dam's defects. Yeah Tim's two facts. Yeah I mean those three fights go on my way who knows though right. I mean what position does that. Put Me and let's say I don't lose that Ross Pearson fight than I don't change things that may be needed to be changed so I always look at them as you know things that that needed to happen. The Mike Perry fight. I don't think I won that fight. You know what I mean I. It was a great fight. The fact that I was able to do as well as I did with a broken arm is something I still hang my hat on it and it very proud of but I thought he did enough to to get that win this last one. You know that that was another one. That's in Shit. That could have been another one. That's didn't go my way. I mean I've been in a lot of really tight fights with some guys at the top of this division and You know. In retrospect and looking back I still feel like I've got some fight left. I WANNA win. At this point this kind of slows everything down for all of us But hopefully we can get back to where this is safer to be fighting throughout all this stuff. And I'll wait till then you know I. I don't WanNa rush right back into until the UFC kind of figures out how we're going to do this stuff. But I'm glad we're doing it. I'm glad we're glad we're fighting at least trying to hopefully a couple of weeks away so hopefully may ninth Actually goes down and we have something to watch. That is not prerecorded. Yeah and apparently Anneke is a little anxious to be calling a dominant cruises. Fight against a pseudo. Have you during that at all where you've had to call a fight of somebody really rough so many times? I've called Anthony pedestals. Donald ceremonies fights before now. They're fighting each other. I've called Gerald Mercer Arts Jared Gordon I've seen him You know lose a really tough fight that he was winning. And I've also saw you know he was put into that that What's that what's that movie called Matt? the stretch move the LIBOR. Looking thing that everybody said nowadays I I don't fucking know. Get every all the FUNKY NAMES. But he was talking with these fancy with them. You know but yeah. I've seen a lot of fighters go through a lysine. Anthony Papas rebound. When he's fighting Pori and was all you know. There are both bloody so yeah. I've had to call some teammates and friends fights and it's it's socks man's. It's just hard to walk away when you're just doing so well. I mean this last fight very well. Could you talked about in this? You know the other two studies James Vick and Edson up to I'm thinking of Era Oliver. Yeah and you're not slowing down so it's like it's not like all right man. Well I took a beating this morning and I give you now you said you would have got finished then then you know all right makes done so you're not you're walking out not the skating Mike Stitcher to it. Maybe but you looking good afterwards all right take me a few days but yeah my face up pretty quick but I was. I look like Frankenstein after that. One couldn't cost your brain still there. You Still Gonna be able to do the commentary you know what I mean. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah I'm not Being separated from consciousnesses. They like to say. Oh I'm still I'm just taking some some flesh wounds. Flesh wants got stranger fighter. Like some guys on the stand when sometimes you always need to get to get beat down of the right. I don't have to walk away. It's hard to walk away. Just you're not slow down. You're looking great. And you're one of those guys that gets better as the fight goes on to you adapt. Which is that's very. That's a very good attribute you adapt with within a fight. And You keep coming forward if something is it just your will not to stop and go forward or did you have a very high Threats shoulder pain. I think that might be a collaboration at the two of those a combination because I I've always been that guy even sparring room. If you catch me with something good I just I just want to get you back so bad you know. It's it's been what drives me for a long time even in an argument with a friend a girlfriend. It doesn't matter I feel like I have to. Kinda fight my way back and win and that's just how I am eight feeling like you got me. You know what I mean if you got me I wanNA fucking hurt you even more. Which is something. I've had to slow down. Which is where Duke really came into play for me because I was fighting with just pretty much a lot of balls and toughness for a long time in my career and I did pretty well with it now. I feel like I got a little bit more strategy behind it as well now despite have nothing to do you use right. Oh yeah is that help. Does that help your poker face there or is that the stupidest budget you ever. You have great. Thank you will get hit again. Look like they stepped Alaba. A I'll tell you. Wince what is that man? Is that just stubbornness show that you got hurt? Your fucking hamlet where you don't get the satisfaction. Trust me. There's no there's no acting involved when it comes all the stuff beforehand. Maybe hyping the fight talking about it. The faceoffs you know Media Day acting really comes into play for all that even backstage preparing to go out there and like getting your mind right for what you gotta do that a lot of things. I learned through the years of what I was performing apply. But it's still such a different frigging beast. I mean you you know. We're going look exactly but it doesn't matter. I don't care who you are when you're backstage about now. That is where it helps right the fact that I know. I'm going out to to put on a show even though it's a show of you know athletics violence. It still helps me know that it's all it's all theater. I mean it is theater that's what the UFC is. There's a stage the octagon. There's a crowd. There are people involved directors producers in the. It's all the same thing pull over. There's no fucking script no script but it every play doesn't have a script you those Improv out. There are things that are made up on the fly. There's just a rough even movies and films have been. There's a rough concept is an idea. We know what we're talking about but we don't know how it's going to go down to what's going to be said and that's what that's what fighting is a very loose script you certain things you know. There's certain things you can't do you kind of have to stay within the bounds of a very loose when the lights going to start. You know. It's either over this way or that way and there's GonNa be another fight after we've got a timeframe we've got a schedule you know so the more you look at. It actually helps you if you look at it like that instead of you know the violence that you're about to go into but once you're in there man it's you know it's instincts for you ever think like when you're about to walk out like if I have five to show tonight and I'm feeling fucked up. I look at the clock and I'm like okay in twelve hours. This whole thing will be over in twenty four hours this. Do you ever look at the clock. I'm going to fight an hour so at in ninety minutes no matter what it's over yet and then when it's over it's over. I wish I could wish. I wish I would have lived through that a little more. You know especially once we do finally retire like God. I wish I was just savored. A little more That and that's one thing I feel like I'm pretty good about especially that last fight in New Zealand. I told myself that a lot I was like. Don't just wait for it to be over kind of how you're talking and we. I have definitely been there election fighting in like three hours. Initiate Shit is. It's done win lose all. I don't handle stress about this anyway. No matter what happens and then afterwards you know you're relishing in every moment of what went down. How long did it take before? You're not like whatever feelings you have before you fight like once it starts then you just lock in. Or how long does it take before you go to like all right? This is going to happen to is just the beginning of the fighters on soon as a fight. The fighting soon as the REF looks at you looks at him or vice versa. Whichever way does and you go everything shuts off for me. I. I don't. I'm not nervous anymore now. I'm just I'm fighting. You know and I have a goal I'm trying to. I'm trying to fuck you up. You know what I mean. That's IT and not get taken out and I'm listening to my coaches. There's there's things that are keeping me focused whereas everything beforehand. What if what if what if what if this happens? What if that happens? What if I slip on the first punch I throw and I go to get up and I get choked out you know? There's so many variables that drive you crazy. At least when the fight starts there was nothing else other than respond to. What's going on? What is something you can? You had signed Matt? What is something you've had like one of soul when we were kings with Ali informant where he says like this nightmares here? And it's happening. Is there anything you've had in your career whether it was Barboza's kicks or something that one of the fighters was GONNA do like you? Were dreading a little bit and then once it happened. You're like okay I just hear it is. It hurts as much as I thought. Or it's not. What was something that happened like that for you that you dread it a little bit and then when it happens. You're like okay. This is the nightmare. I was worried about an probably one of the ones I was most worried about. Was Charles Oliveras Jitsu I? I just know he's such a finisher so slick on the ground and almost immediately in that flight we came out. We touched each other a little bit with some punches through a couple of leg kicks and the next thing I know I am not only all my back. He's transitioning he's got my neck and he's looking for for finish and I'm in the dark choke and I'm hearing myself gargle almost a minute into the freaking fight and I'm thinking here we go this. Is it done and I remember saying to myself. You're done and then I remember saying to all right. We'll do this do that the next thing. I know I'm still there. I'm like all right. Well we'll just you know you're going to tap let's tap like this sucks and then you tell yourself no. Don't tap these are. This is all within twenty seconds. Ten seconds yeah the conversations you've had. I thought about my dad. I thought about this. I thought about going to sleep in my gonNA ship my pants here when he puts me to sleep. The next thing I know I'm out of it and I'm L. Bonehead. It's just but that was one of the ones where I was like. God Damn it. This is what I was saying about. And He's good. It's I can't move. He's he's every time I fight this. He's on that transitioning it so that was one of the more intimidating moments. I've been in in the UFC where a guy is in his wheelhouse performing. Well thought date. And it's as bad as I thought. Perseverance Shimmy. That's one of those when you're watching it and now it's done it's over. Always he's gotta get out you jump up. I remember that because then he went from young to a mountain guillotine if I remember correctly yeah under the chain Holy Schipol then He. He had me in that Dr Santa going back and forth with that and in the moment for some reason I think I was going to appeal his leg off. I gave him my leg so now. He's gone my leg annex folding me in half with the choke and he's got these long wiry arms and I remember thinking you idiot like I've finally kicked kicked out of it and I was able to roll out NATO my back the same way he took a man I forget the guy's name but he choked him out with a standing rear naked choke and I was in a standing joke but I was able to pull my his arm over my head and like throw him to the Mat and that was kind of win the tables turned and he was so tired because he put about five chokes on me s in a few minutes. And I'm a big guy in there at fifty five a much bigger than Charles was so I was able to use that to my advantage. Thank God you're last loss to offer. Last loss was to you. Yeah trying to keep it that way. So so you get back tonight you you get to quarantine and then you like all right. Look look at my last fight. What I've been doing. What am I thinking? I got a little emotional. I got a lot of family. Time now. Built up overflowing. Let me get back into clear that what goes through your head a lot of that for sure right because you don't expect you know what I'm thinking retirement. I'm thinking I'm GonNa go back. I'M GONNA start being on the road again. I'm not going to see my family as much. It's going to be stressful enough with just commentary. Which makes me think okay. Well at least if I'm just doing that I'll have time to see. Then everything is shutdown. And it's been you know eight weeks nine weeks where I've pretty much been home the whole time and spending nothing but I'm with the family so now my well I could go away for at least one more. You know what I mean. I put the overtime here at so we'll see though it really depends on timing and how this all plans out because you know I. I'm going to be busy with commentary now once we get going if Dana gets this ball rolling. I'm GonNa be working these shows because I will be in. I'm I'm scheduled to go to Florida if things go down so not for May ninth but the the you know we got two more shows after that they need commentary desk work. So we'll I'll be finding out what's what's going to happen. What do you think happens? You Division is so good And obviously is such a an interesting choice to fight Ferguson? Nobody is disappointed about that to see those to go out. I think that's almost as interesting as as hit against heavy. What what do you think happens in this fighting? I know they're hard to predict now. They're so hard to predict You know I I like. Hp chances are a lot more now that he's had a little more time to prepare. Nine just goes out on his shield so much that I think he's either going to you know like even said he's like I if I don't go in there and and get a knockout her finish him. He doesn't see himself getting his hand race. And you got to appreciate a guy like that. That knows that his style is. You're either taking me out or I'm taking you out. He doesn't want it to be a decision. He's GonNa go at you until you either catch him or he catches you but As far as predictions you know I have no clue. You say that when he came in when he fourteen or fifteen when he came didn't get you go again. I know my style lends itself to be a knocked out. It's probably going to happen eventually. He said something that will happen. Resent he was waiting and he kept saying he's waiting to meet is equal and you know and he found that in the UFC which is why he wanted to come over here and why. He wanted to compete. You know not just in these other organizations. He wanted to come here so that he could do that. And then rise up like he has again. You know what I mean. He took his losses. He found the guys that were just as good as him and he worked on the things he needed to work on. And now he's you know fighting for an interim belt and potentially fighting for the the lightweight title. So you know everybody kind of comes at me. A lot of his fans. Come at me hating on me. Because I've called him out over the years and I've said some things about them but I I always back it up with saying anything I say about Justin or Tony is out of complete respect and you know I recognized their skill so trump people people give me shit but it is what it is guys. I WANNA fight the guys that are the best and those guys are those. Those guys came with Connor. Disabled any of these guys. Of course I WANNA fight them. Say THINGS ABOUT THEM GUYS? What do you? What do you expect us to do if we're all together? I'M NOT GONNA sit back and keep quiet. You know otherwise I might as well just retired fucked atman enough range. You could use some enemies and you're right you're right that's that's a true statement right there as I got. We got enough people in our lives. You don't need. You don't need twitter to love. You do jared below man. That's all you need for a hilarity. At least that's all I need is my roofing for guys is some of the guys. I haven't here philly between them. The text message groups that I'm in on a daily basis. Keep me laughing my ass off on this. I need one other friend. I don't give a shit I by Jimmy Beverly Let me issue after this fight with with Tony Adjusted. I am intrigued. I am intrigued with a fight between everybody talks about Tony Versa. Bieb and obviously I WANNA to see that everybody wants to see that what about Justin versus need. Just fucking pot who keeps guy down down work and relaxing. Its Guard fight once I saw and then he gets back up but he wants who the guy down. He's devastating his power standing up. Endurance is it is top notch. Kicks I would love to see him if he beats Tony. Instead of what would have fight with Abib. How would you see that going? I think that's I think that's even more intriguing because of the wrestling background. That Justin just use it purely for defense right so I know. Habib is an absolute monster when it comes grappling but I wanna see somebody really that is is is as good of a grappler as abib tried to take down. Justin and see if he can if he can neutralize that and keep it on his feet. That's that's a real bad fight for beaming. I'm not saying to all those guys out there. We're GONNA come at us now either. I'm not saying that's going to happen. I'm not saying could be can't take down but that intrigued me. 'cause Justin has such a solid wrestling background that we barely even get to see. Imagine if you really did tap into that imagine if he was taking guys down putting them on their backs and using that power that he has to to ground and pound. We're only seeing a portion of what that guy is actually capable of. That's how mentally crazy to me is that he's like now. I'm here because I like to fight. Now he's wrestled back in college and high school. I don't need to do that anymore. I just want to punch people in the face and kick their legs off well. Connor I mean did better on the ground again to be. The people thought he would. He lasted longer than people. People tap the first round any wound up going into the fourth so I thought that his defense was better than people expected. I feel like he's a better grappler than he gets some credit for you know he's gotten caught by D. as he sat some issues in the past. But if you really watch me. Swept the as at one point in their first or second fighting sets moments of seems like a legit Jitsu guy under cavenaugh but Habib's just a different of relentless animal. You know he would have given up on certain take downs or positions on the ground. He just doesn't stop right. I would have been like all right. Well she had. I can't keep this guy on his back I'm GonNa he's GonNa stay up for Awhile. He's like now. I'm just going to do until I die. Also issue now have power in his hands. I think it'd be heavy hands. He doesn't get better with it. And I said that before that you see's working on his boxing He stood that one round with Connor. And you might not want it but he he did that to prove a point and then was able to get to take down in the round that he wanted so he's a smart guy and he's a very very technical martial artists out there. He doesn't do things that are just for show. He doesn't go out there and try to appease anybody he. He implements his game plan and gets the win and you know he's got a huge following. It's nice to see somebody that doesn't really talk a lot of trash. Just defend himself and does his thing you know and goes out there and fights and MMA fight and people love it. It's nice to see. Well Paul I gotta be really happy that you've changed your mind about retiring really happy. I mean you're a great announcer and I listen to you and qualified great at it. But you know I I would like to see a couple of more Paul felder fighters guys in that division. I still I'll never rest until you and I went to fight. Still fucking heard about that one getting into the right. Now please as a fan this yet. That's just too fucking another guy that you know I have about respect for al knows that too. I've seen them all I see on the road Moment when we were functioning as organization and this stuff wasn't going on is we see each other all the time. We see each other ring a combat she. Fc shows. I mean it's you know to East Coast guys that have very similar mindset so I just wish I was good at selling real estate like he is. That'd be sweet right now. Once this is done people are GonNa WanNa buy stuff. Well it's always good talking to you man and you know again. Congratulations on the dog. And I hope you again soon Buddy Airport. You guys yeah. I'm glad I got this one in. And hopefully you guys stay safe and keep their minds occupied. I know this is Times Yanks. Times man throw will our party. Greg spotting really is great news. His decision to maybe fight again is really happy because he really one of those guys like Justin. You never don't want to watch him fight. His fights never suck. He's always in it until the last second again. Three out of five losses split decisions people about quarantine if it wasn't for the quarantine maybe we would not have seen both. Are I gotta get something good at us? Something horrendous. We'LL LOOK. Here's some good news before we go. It's April twenty-seventh a twelve days. Whatever it is until the fight so a week from this Saturday we got fights so where we got something forward to. I mean we have that we have Bret Okamoto's song fight island is I mean.

But here's what I WANNA do. I wanted to have a conversation with Mrs Sarah and ask you what she really thinks about this. She's not a fan. She's not a fan Jimmy. She's helping the kids in the in the dining room doing the homework or mind getting frustrated. Three kids she goes to their dobra husband is got the. He's got a headset on all leaning out.

You don't like them. I get why you don't like it but if you've never fought tooth and you don't like him you just basically a Dick. Because he's he's great. Listen he's he's a good guy in a is dog. Looks Awesome Man. And he's as tough as they come all those guys. You're talking about Tony or Sabih and Tony Justin Justin versa deed poll felder fight anyone of any connor. I should be said that when we were on air within the making but I think he whatever I'll say it now I thought of that like I literally as police talking. There's nobody in that division again. I say I just because they're both such tough guys that don't quit but there's also of course there's also just engage against Feld. It'd be fucking amazing fight. I would hooters. WanNa see GAIJIN fight. Paul fell to just two guys that don't stop every guy we just mentioned you just match each one of them up and everyone every fight will be phenomenal and we will talk more on Wednesday about these fights. I WANNA go through. How excited I am about this card. I mean literally I looked at the. What is the prelims? Prelims are better than some fucking headed and cowboys of prelims. Let's talk about it on Wednesday. We have a whole lot of ground to cover all buddy real whole dude. It's amazing he's on the feelings. I'm looking at it now. Jimmy I cannot of Bir do I know for BCS doom against ALMANAC. Yeah I before before. I want to say you're right. Hold on I'll tell you the second at the end but I don't have to try to smart.

Alvie is in the early preliminary and he's the first night of the night the day who gamers Nico Price before. This isn't a May do they have not. It's really an amazing.

What's happening guys happy Wednesday? And thank you for joining another special episode of your welcome, you know, send in happy birthday messages because today is the day yours truly celebrating a birthday. I'm glad you could join me for a little talk. Because maybe I got maybe I got an early birthday present yesterday. I see the germy Stevens has decided to call out. Just engaging. I don't know why. I don't know. Why those guys wanna fight? I hear they're not even in the same way class. They wanna fight. I'm on board. They wanna fight I wanna watch. So maybe something happens there. Maybe something does happen there. And I know so many people don't like the changing of the way classes with who cares. Let's start to see it. You get somebody better. You wanna see Germany Stevens fight the annot anybody that wants to fight. Just engage. He come on. Maybe that makes a level of sense gauge, you came out by the way after his fight with Barboza, and he made a comment along the lines of my style. Would give Khabib problems something along those lines. I liked that fight. I like that fight. You know, don't forget the driver seat appears to be open for could be bright. Now, we didn't know one could be was gonna come back. You've got a year suspension or a six months suspension and that I'm going to settle whole year. Something like this something Dana recently came out in an interview with a sports show in Las Vegas. Little local sports show and said, hey, could be will be back in September. So when you start to look at how that can line up somebody needs to be there to face him. And if that person isn't going to be named Conor McGregor if Tony Ferguson is on the sidelines for a little bit. I get that we have poor ya. And max, I get that. I get to that's what we're being told. But I think there's a moving parts of that too. Is max gonna stay up. If he beats Portas max want to go back down to one forty five hundred fend that belt smacks. Just gonna leave forty five and he gets stripped to that belt moves up to fifty five. I don't know that these all about heart of questions to answer. But you have to go in line. You can't answer them right now. Maksim poor have to go out in their fight. If Portia gets the jump on max, then that would add to the fact that okay, max done at one fifty five. I'm gonna go back to one forty five. I would think I would think that that would be an added encourage mel's go back down here. I'm still the world champion nothing to see. But let's see what happens. Let's just see what happens there. I also I'm not predicting for you guys any more that Jeremy Stevenson adjusting gate. You're in a fight that I am that just engage in could be we're gonna fight at least not next. But there does seem to be some things that would point in the support of that if you guys like the idea make your voices her. That's how fights get made. Right fighters, come out. They said we're willing. I'm willing foam, then we'll wait to hear from you guys. You like the idea even get pushed forward, there would be something that would seem to line up there, though gauge is going to have to fight somebody between now and compete is hot and Brighton. Shiniest stars right now it goes fast. This war goes really fast. Just another one fifty five powder fighting. Okay. That's a fight. I wanna see and everybody else gets left behind. So he needs something to do. And I also think of five. Between gate she and Khabib just to share with you guys. Right. There's politics in this sport. Maybe more in this sport than any other sport to share with you guys. They have the same manager. So the managers not going to get in the way, he's not going to say we want something else for Khabib and slide his own protege. Engage. He managed is going to go. Look if I can get two guys a title fight and a main event in the same night. Even if against each other, I have more this exceeded at my job. It's a little back story there but gates you could get that. It's not next. I don't want to hear that in the comments section. But I will also tell you. I'm very interested in that. I am. And that's before you even get into the Xs and os, and who would win and who striking's better who's wrestling's better and who can push harder for five right before you get into any of that. Just engage does make a fair point. When he says, I'm one it's a broad statement. There was nothing arrogant about he said, I'm one of the biggest threats. That's true. That is absolutely true. Just engage is one of the biggest threats you can fill in the name. After that. His statement was two convenient. Magneto you can fill in the blank. He's a top fighter in the world. Joe Rogan came out in the most violent guy in the UFC tremendous compliment. But I don't know about that. Don't forget about the great marketing ploy of two thousand eighteen Eddie Alvarez was getting ready to fight. Just engaging. Eddie Alvarez came out and said this is for the title of UFC's most violent man everybody that caught on. I didn't even know that Eddie's the one that created that hash tag. I thought like the UFC came out and said this is for the title of most violent because it caught on. So well that was out there for like three weeks before I found out that Eddie created Justin got on board with the Justice aren't saying. Yeah, that's what we're fighting for the you have Sieg on the media. Got other fighters got him. I got up board Alvarez beat him Alvarez is the most violent men and before you guys. I don't want any fact checkers out there will you know, he's not in the NFC. He's over at when I got it. I got it MMA broad strokes here, but maybe in his absence. Maybe it does by default, go to gauge. I just think it has to be called ahead of time. That's what I would tell Joe Rogan has to be called ahead of time. Not after the fact because it's a tremendous tremendous title. And there is something very special engaging fights, I'll be curious who was next opponent. As though you don't forget a guy like that the fights that violent if that's the word we're using that ferocious that high pressure that right in your face that secret wrestling weapon that he never pulls out. He always goes to his second best weapon, which is a stand up and he still gets his head raise a Cadillac. That's scary. Who's gonna find him somebody that gets a phone? Call and says, hey, here's the offer. And here's what we want to do. And here's the opportunity. Here's what's on the line. Yeah. I guess I guess we can go out and try to talk a guy into it. I mean, that's kind of the way the sport is played. I will concede that but germy Stevens is a willful participant who raised his hand and raised it before everybody else. I'm on the bandwagon. It's enough to win me over on the bandwagon less. You guys have a better idea. I would love to hear it just got to have two ideas. You gotta tell me who would you rather Stevens fight and. Who would you rather? See gate, you gotta sell both problems. It can't solve a bowl. Let's put together. That's what I'm thinking about. Okay. Guys. I have to tell you amateur wrestling talk. Bonita won the Hodge award well-deserved. And that's who I had went in as well. And it came as probably a little bit awkward because it came down to him and his own teammate Jason off and both were really great arguments. And I don't really like some of the criteria that they're doing for the hajj Wardha now for the hajj award. Now, they have an actual criteria process. That's a bunch of crap that should be thrown out. I know that got put in place to clean it up and make it fair and make it more stylish that is garbage. Everybody knows when they watch a collective body of work known as a season. They know who the best wrestler was and that's who supposed to win the hajj do records. Yes, sure. They do titles matter. Yeah. You bet they do. But pins and tech falls and take downs dominance that's garbage. If one guys in a much tougher way. Then another guy he's not gonna have the same spread between competition. Best guy should get the award. In this case. Best guy got the word for future. That's the way that has to go. If they're all coming forward saying that one hundred thirty three pounds is the toughest wave of the country. In fact, the toughest weight that the country's ever even seen the winter of one thirty three wins, the hajj that's the way that that goes. Set of this was looked at differently wasn't just about into the season. Was it just about results was collective body was about conference tournaments was about showing up for every single match with? There was some parody their nickel moved up a weight class, right? Into a brick wall knows a world team member and column more got it done. Got it done two or three times throughout season. In addition to other Goodwin's, so congratulate snow Bonino congratulations to wrestling to getting it. Right. But in the future that criteria. You're going off of for the Hodges going to bite you in the ass. It's going to bite you get away with that get away from it right now, the award goes to the best wrestler, and he doesn't have to beat everybody by twenty points. He can have overtime matches and close matches and sudden victory matches. If he's in the toughest weight class just dismissed Mark Collins, a he'd they're both national champions in the same weight class. We want to encourage that we wanna courage iron on top of iron one. Encourage those kind of parodies Saturday night finals. ESPN red corner blue corner, let's figure this thing out encourage that what a Hodge trophy up and they put a bunch of criteria that would make guys want to go and find an easy route. So they can get major decisions in Penn, falls and tech, falls and all this other stuff. And that's what that's doing. If you have a criteria. Keep it. Very quiet. Keep it for whoever the criteria committee is we should not know that a war goes to the best wrestler of the season in college. Wrestling, the end showing us how the sausage is made. Don't let us into the weeds. You're ruining it, whatever brainiac. And I know how these things go. Well, you know, we've got to have some criteria. We gotta liver been no, no, you don't you just at the end of the year when you give that trophy out need to put it around the right guy. That's it. That's your job. Nothing else. You're getting in your own way. Mark my words. Okay. Some personal stuff. Submission underground. We'll be showed on UFC fight pass may twelfth. Cardis coming together. Tickets are on sale. I'll tease you guys a little bit. Craig Jones will be in the main of that. I will let you know who is opponent is going to be Frank MIR will be on the car taking on fob Bianco Shurmur, Chris LeBron we'll be on the car against Jake shields. That's an interesting match Jake Ellen Berger and Diego. Sanchez will be on the card in a rematch. Lot more common. I gotta hold a couple of my cards close. But may twelfth is right around the corner. Tickets are on sale, and there's the plug submission underground coming at you. Oh, guys, by the way. I saw a real piece of crap last night. Oh, I saw movie. I can't even tell you the name of it. But I'm going to tell you about it because I think you should see it even though it's a piece of crap I enjoyed every minute of it, Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn K. I mean, that's a great tool. I saw this thing I'm looking at going. I'm a movie guy, this this goes straight to DVD type thing there's no way that was in the theaters and they did immediate tour, and I miss that Vince Vaughn and Mel Gibson come on. I want to heard about that. This movie was garbage. I bet you did go right to DVD. The editing is bad. The direction was bad. The cinematography was. I enjoyed every bit of this movie. It was just fun. I can't give the in a way, but I want to if I gave the Indian away I think that that would help to describe for you guys why I like this. But it did take some interesting twists and turns regardless of the low budget and poor team that put it together the end of the day. They still get some credit. I still gotta give it to thumbs up March madness rolls along with another very exciting week of college basketball as we've gone from sixty four teams down to the final four this Saturday.

So first off ical who won the Hodge award K ESPN main of it if you will last match of the night somewhere, and for some reason, I don't know what in the hell was missed here somewhere. He calls out been aspirin. Well, what's been supposed to do other than except for they going to wrestle? So I get a hold of both go. Let's do it submission underground. We'll do this. We'll go take downs only best to seven. So I one to four. Matches stop raise their hand. Everybody's gonna understand that everybody's going to have fun, right? Instead of trying to explain this to the submission grappling on everybody's going to get the take downs. And everybody wants to see that match. Let's do it. Boom. They're both in on board. Whole thing's locked up bona calls back. He goes look. I didn't look at my calendar. I have the world team trials the next weekend. I can't be out in Portland and an open weight match catch an airplane try to cut wait get down to ninety two. I can't do it. I I screwed this up. Gimme another date. My words goods. Bo timeout. No problem. That's what we'll do find another day and do it in the meanwhile, Craig Jones's opponent falls out for the main event he was supposed to take on Vinnie mog, Lance. So then he ends up getting a fight in professional fight league. Twenty days later can't do it. Okay. Great good. Andre Galvao interested. Couldn't do it. Go to Josh Barnett. Josh Barnett interested has needs to days to get back to me. So two days to get. Back to me. This is Sunday, by the way to get back to me boom on Monday. He goes on aerial show at ten AM signs a contract with belt or a hold of me says everything came together. Can't do the match taken a fight. Instead. Well, that was kind of cool. I don't really know what. Hell Josh up so much, quite frankly. I mean, it always seemed like that's where he was soon as he left left the and he didn't get cut. This was a while ago. And I don't really remember all the circumstances around it, but he didn't get cut. Maybe he'd thought out his contract. Maybe he asked for release a kind of happened quietly, and my memory isn't totally there on what happened. But as soon as it did have at that. Well, he's he'll be coming back over with Coker who used to promote them under the strikeforce banner. And it just didn't happen. Josh that didn't come that. We had a heavyweight tournament coming up thinking. Okay. Josh is gonna get announced. He's gonna jump right into the did it happen. And then there was a little bit of time somewhere along the way we're fade or needed an opponent. My camera. What happened but somewhere along the way fater was looking for an opponent which again ties back to Josh Barnett in. Is back to fight. The people have been wanting to see since the affliction days. I'm one of those people I wanted to see that fight. No, Josh Barnett. So he goes on aerial show. He pulls out a piece of paper doesn't even alert. How Wani is to what he's Aeros. What are you doing? Hey, Josh, we're live. If you're going to work this into my segment, you kinda you gotta bring me on winter you doing so then Josh halted up. It shows airland boom he'd he'd signed Bellcore contract. But one thing that was interesting about it. I can at least with my experience with belts. Or when I signed with Bella tour the day of side of the contract was also the day. I signed a bout agreement. Meaning I knew who my opponent was I knew what the date wasn't new at the weight class was I now have something to tell the world. Not just I signed I signed. And if you would like to see me, Mark this date or show up to this venue. So that's what I was waiting for with. Josh I was waiting for Josh to say, and I will be fighting fill in the blank in this quote. Maybe I've got it maybe fade or does make some sense doesn't it because don't forget what Coker wanted to do Coker wanted to get CRO up and fade or back in there again. And then miracle beats ROY Nelson and retired. Remember, he had that stroke or something where he he got. He said, I'm done. I'm not take any more punches boom. He's gone it appears that there's somebody that needs to fill that seat and Josh Barnett versus fatal at least for me works at least for me that really works. And I don't know what fate or wants to do by the way, you know, he came to the head of heavyweight tournament. He came up with the silver medal. A lot of us thought that either way he was going to ride off into the sunset. But there's been no talk of that. There's also been no talk that he's getting back in the gym. And he's looking to come. And maybe he's going to be standing opposite, Josh Barnett. But I would offer for you guys get your predictions and now because I'm guessing I'll bet you I'm right that Josh sitting on it. I think Josh does have an opponent. I think Josh does have a date loosely. I think it could be with fatal. But there there's other guys in there. There's other guys. So I'm not bullish on that. But I do think the Josh is holding back. And I think that maybe I have inside knowledge by him calling me going. Hey, I can't I can't take on Craig because I got this fight coming up which. Thinking you didn't announce a fight you only announced that you had a contract. So I think Joshua's sitting on something we'll have to wait and see where that goes.

Oh, we had a we had an attorney on here. Clifton Molitor, and we were talking about the college admissions scandal where did that happen? I think it was Harvard USC was brought into that. Maybe HALE was brought in a few different schools who were talking about the ins and outs in the legality. I've just watching this thing play out, and I don't know this gal's name Laurie something Lori Laughlin. I don't know how to say your last name. She was on full house a show. I used to watch. I think she think she played him Becky at any. That's how I know her. Then there's another gal named Felicity Huffman who I am very familiar with. I like her work. She was finding desperate housewives. She was great in three billboards outside ebbing, Missouri as she's married to the guy from shameless. What's that guy's name Nick from shameless? William something William he's very famous. What is it William William Macy? All right. So and I don't think those two women teamed up. I don't think they were together. I think they've just both happen to be. Women and they both just happened to be actresses in Hollywood. I think I've never heard the store where they like win on this together. But either way so they get jammed up and now lorries at least come out and apologized om sorry for doing that. I'm kind of looking around really are you really I mean have a backbone in. This thing have some strengthen this thing you're gonna get one side that saying how wrong this was. But you're going to get other other people are going to come out and he did something to help your kid. I mean, I wanted to get my kid, and so I spent a bunch of money to and I got him into extra clicker thing. So that his resume look good. And you know, I was I was getting tutored, and I was paying good money for that. I was paying a bunch of money to private schools. And I I was you know, donate into two teams to get the coaches to write I spent a bunch of money to you found a way to do it a little bit quicker than I did you're going to have people to say that I I don't want an opinion from you guys to whether that's right or not. That's not the stance. I'm taking what I am taking is for her to come out as a parent and find somebody that's willing to take her money too. Broker a deal. You can come out apologize for that that seems to make level of sense that part of it seems to make a level of sense seems to be what everybody else is doing seems to be the reason that the parents go to the private schools and get the tutors and get on the fancy club and sports teams and try to get their kids. Recruited seems like we're all going in the same direction. They spent their money in other places to build up a resume to get in you found a guy said just give me the money, and I'll get it in. There seems to be something here where I don't think you're gonna have to come out on a big apology tour as much as just tell the story the way that the store happens. Those facts may not be wonderful for you. But those facts are also not as terrible for you. As other people are trying to paint this. There's just not I listened to the DA come out who was the one that was coming down all of it. And he said in his speech. Hey, we realize things like this happen all the time. If somebody donates, this is his words if somebody comes out and donates hundreds of billions of dollars and gets a building on campus put with. Their name on it. Yeah. They're going to have some favors. But this is a little different because it wasn't done as quite out in the open, man. I don't know about that. It sounds like you're saying the same thing. It sounds like you were saying the same thing to me. That sounds the exact same thing to me. I'm well aware of the heartfelt argument that the kids whose parents didn't have those connections got left out. I just think you're missing the argument that those schools at the highest of levels are a business, and as a guy that went to school, and whose dads spent the money, and I gave up the time. And I went and got certified smart. So that I could look down on everybody else. And pretend I was at a higher group than man. What are you guys doing? That's all part of marketing of the schools. It was nothing more than a really God. Damn good time. That was it. We really great degree for me. What do you think they have at Yale? We think they have at Harvard. They got some golden book that I can't go check out at any other library. Do you not see the marketing ploy that these are just a business? You get a bunch of off any punch up uppity. Pricks that didn't want to go out to join the workforce. And they found a way to get out of the workforce for four years and all the while society, raise them up to act as though they were the higher bunch of society or the real members of cited. They're moving the world forward are out working. They just because they wanted to maybe they couldn't get in. Maybe they just didn't see the advantages, but either way to act as though the marketing and act as though the business side of the education, isn't there? And I'm really not seeing the I'm really not seeing this guys. What is the difference? If somebody donates a couple of hundred million dollars in build a school, which is the example that was given not by me. That's the example that was given by the guy was coming after him, and therefore has the right to call him favors and get people that did it have the SAT score didn't have the resume did it of the community service all the things that were different administrations would look at in being able to get them in off of a phone call. We've all heard those stories I could tell you ton of those stories where somebody got to the biggest owner of the school and got a favorite cockatiel ton of those. There's nothing underhanded about that at all. And that's not my that's according to the guy who's. Coming after them. Now, they want to come out and say, oh, I'm really sorry. Did this really sorry? You did this or you really sorry that you got caught doing this because there's a meaningful difference. I do think that as a very weird thing to start with if you asked the pair. Okay. Why do you want your kid to go to one of these? And I off USC not for nothing. I have friends from come on USC is now all of a sudden really good school was some kind of tough admission standards in the same conversation as Yale and Harvard. I'm excuse me. Excuse me parents but not exactly money. Well, spent what was your kids SAT score that you need to cheat? The system to get into USC. What did he have a six eighty is that what happened cheat the system to get into US? I mean, they should be getting a refund on their money. But either way let's take a little closer look as hey parents just tell me this just so I can unpack this whole thing. Why did you try to rig this? Why did you try to get advantages for your kit? Well, I wanted to get a good education. Okay. Great. But tell me why. Because I wanted to get a good job. Okay. But tell me why. Well, because I want him to make good money someday. Okay. Great. Because it sounds like I can just tell you right now. Now, how you're kicking have a whole bunch of money. Sounds like I could just go eight z, and we could leave this criminal act out of it, by the way. This you see who who you gonna press with the USC not I went to the university of Oregon. I'm in the same boat say league save conference. Okay. So before but comes down on me. I'm just a real about it. You should not be in president. I got a degree from the university of Oregon. If you're talking about Harvard and Yale put you associated have to cheat to get yourself into UFC. Just go to what's that online university? Phoenix Phoenix online go there. It's the same thing. Our friends at geiko wanna save you some cash and even better they wanna save you some time you don't even have to leave your house guys. All you have to do is go to Geico dot com and in fifteen minutes, you could be saving fifteen percent or more on car insurance. Extra money in your pocket. It just might be the most rewarding thing you do today. You know, Paul filler took a little bit of heat, Paul feller and Karyn Bryant actually took heat. Let me let me take us. What happened? Let's back up camera. Brian Paul Felder. And Tyron Woodley are on the desk for ESPN. Win gates. You fights proposal. So fights are over Katie gets invited up to do an interview. Now, I have to tell you right out of the gate pole filter and Karyn. Bryant take a little bit of heat somehow tired wouldn't even though he was there. No trouble whatsoever. But I have to say, I don't think Karen feller did anything wrong. Here's what happened before. I bury my lead too much Felder called out gay Chee in a very calm. And a very matter of fact way where he simply said, I really like your style and the fan seemed to also really like my style, and we're in the same way class, and we both these weren't is words. This is what he said, we both know how this works. They're looking to put on really exciting fights. We both qualify is that in the same. What we're gonna have to fight sooner or later, and I will say he didn't have very good. I've actually never seen Paul Felder stub his toe. Never once on TV. And he's done some things that some guys couldn't get away with. But he has a way of being very calm and very sincere when he says to you just respectfully why don't we just move forward together? And call for this fight because they're going to be calling for sooner or later. Why don't we just do it? He has a way of presenting it that is extremely professional. And he did it upset gay Chee in the least. But after the fact Justin push back a little bit goes, man. That was my fifteen minutes. I came up there as a favor, and then I got called out. I'm not crazy about that. I understand. But this is the business. This is simply how the business goes and Justin as soon as you get your hand raised in everything is going great. The only thing you need. It's not a celebration. And it's not two weeks off like fighter sank. The only thing you need is to know. What's next? The second the marketing for one fight ends the marketing for the next fight begins. And if you've got called up there and Felder did it in a respectful way. And I think by Justin's reaction, the Justice would fully agree with me that fell. There was not mean or condescending or aggressive at all as much as just going. Hey, I think maybe we're thank maybe this is our first face off. Even if on intentional. What do you think? Think I think that he's right about that? I also think that it served Justin. I do think it served him. I do not believe that was an ambush by any kind. But that is why you get called up to set you get called up to. That's why they say what's next for you. That's why they bring up the rankings and try to make the cases and the fact that they're now having active and competitive athletes in the booth and doing those type things look these this is going to arise and if you wanna push back, and you stay professionally I in Justin did push back. He said it's one of the time. Look at the rank as you've got a couple of front of you good line by Justin. It was good aggressive line. It did actually make me want to see the fight less. It made me wanna see the fight more. Because now, I know Justin can also stand toe to toe with a microphone with Paul Felder who's pretty damn good at that. But I would just like to offer you my two cents for being on both sides of that. I have been a fighter that has gone up to do a favor and felt that I was outnumbered. And I was ambushed by some kind of a commentating team who Ivan deduced on my own. Must've pre worked that out and decided to make me look a fool as I learn more about the business. No, this whole thing. Just spontaneous. It's just I walked onto your set, and I walk away. And you guys were here before I got here. And you guys are here after I'm going to leave. So it gave me the appearance of a team effort while I was up here. Sore and tired trying to give you guys a spot. I think there was enough move for misinterpretation. But for some reason, I do feel compelled I guess because the respect that I have for is work. And I can't Karen not really sure how she got brought into it. I see why tire and got left out of it. But I gotta tell you. I'm never seen Felder screw up. I really haven't. And this was not a screw up as much as an opportunity that was taken. It was also taken in the spirit of of hail fellow well met there was nothing underhanded about it. Let's take a moment to give a big thank you to truecar for being a loyal sponsor of this podcast.

It can you bring this up. Paulie Mullen Aji, and Artem Lobov's something to do with bare knuckle, boxing, see if you can find that. So these guys got it some kind of a dustup yesterday. I thought they were getting ready to fight each other. I read that Artem and Polly we're going to go box and bare knuckle, boxing, I get it. I get the Connor Tien. I get the whole thing. Policemen wanting to fight with Connor we've already seen from histories pass. If you do something to Artem maybe Connors attention, right? Okay. I kiss him wrong. I guess these guys are not getting ready to fight one another, but they are both signed by the same promotion. So here let me take a look at this. Okay. Well, there was a lot going on there. I mean, I gotta tell you. That's a pretty good line by Polly. That wasn't even an honest slap. That was a bitch slap for a bitch, and quote, not a bad line successful promotion. Yes, sure. Why? Because it was organic, and it was real and it looked organic. And it looked real whether it was or not they still made me believe it. But I would be remiss if I did not tell you. I don't think paulie wants to be slapping 'em eighth fighter in St. style situation. If this was box rules. Yeah. I think paulie got the job. They were getting ready to compete. I don't know that Polly wants to be happy, Artem. But there it is good line by paulie. What do you think that good line by Polly not bad line? What art of say back? I couldn't hear anything. Did he say anything he said nothing, or at least certainly he said something that was trying to throw the kick. Right kick. His all. Could see in that video was his back. And then all of a sudden some kit comes from ten feet away in the Polly returns a punch from four feet away. Let's still something to watch. I'm glad we had it. And speaking had it I've had it with all of you. But I'll see you get on Friday until then I'm chill sudden. And you are well, thanks for listening to your welcome with jail Sunan.

What's up fella's? Good morning morning. Thursday, November eighth getting closer to the weekend. Getting closer some fights. And today's guests will be filled Davis and Paul Felder. We mentioned that on the pre show if you're watching us via video you may be thinking why? Well, I mean, there's an official start to the show and that other stuff were just monkeying around having a good time. Couple minutes every day, but more than anything just to give you a little background. It's just so that we can make sure everything's tightened up over here on the production side. And that we're ready to go that way when we really start. We're not like, hey, wait a minute. So-and-so trip though, record Phil Davison Paul failed. There will be our guess Phil should be calling in pretty soon. He'll be fighting a bell toward nine which takes place on November fifteen so it's right around the Kona. In fact, they're all heading over to Israel for bell Tor two. Oh nine. It's third time there believe so not right. I know one other. But yeah, they may they may be now up to three. Patricio frady. He's the champion. He'll be defending against Emanuel Sanchez. That night. That's your main event. Also, you got Ryan couture featured on the main card Phil Davis feature on the main card fills got a dem- cough. Ryan, I I don't know who is opponent is a high end goes on because all these is name. Cindy, Dan, doors on the card and Correal sedillo cough who was known as baby fade or back in the day. I mean, not named goes back all the way to the affliction days of two thousand seven two thousand eight. Hoist gracie. Son Comrie Gracie is on the show as well or sorry on- not our show, but on on that show. So that goes down next week. But I know the guys are taking off pretty soon, and that's why we're working fill in one week before fight week. And then this week is you've see fight night one thirty nine in Denver, Colorado. If you haven't heard right board is out of his fight versus Joseph Benedetta is. And what that means. We don't know because as of right now, there's only three flyweight flyweight bouts that are booked and in looks like the rumors are true. The they will just dissolve that division and absorbed some fighters into one hundred and thirty five into the bantamweight division and others. Just I think they'll be on their way. And who knows maybe one championship has a bigger grand prix than we thought. Maybe thirty two deeper sixteen deep who knows what we know. Dmitri's is heading that way, he signed as a free agent. V H raid for. Vanass grin and speaking of one championship sorry to just go from topic topic. But. Waiting for Phil. Michel Tate is now the vice president at one championship. Congratulations to her fellow colleague on fight nation. Johnny three in fact yesterday. I was listening to Ryan Makino, let me should take on their show ever made tonight. They do the Wednesday episodes and Ryan was asking me Shohei after the show, you're headed to Singapore. She said, yeah, what's going on over there? She's being a little coy. But what she did say was I'm gonna meet with shot. Trees Sigita on. Who's their CEO? And just see what he's got. You know, maybe it'd be interesting to work with them in some capacity. Well, unless she was on some like, a one of those raptors that we see over there Langley air base. There's no way she could have gotten there and already discussed and signed on to be the vice president this thing was already in the works. Oh, yeah. And I figure she must have just boarded the plane or they must just be flying over LA. When I read the announcement that she is there. There vice president so congrats to her. But I thought that hand could have played been played a little different. I would have said well, Ryan, you know, I love to say it here on the show, but something is in the works with one championship. You'll be hearing something soon. The other one just sounded like, well, you know, just. You know, I just wanna shake his hand. I've always wanted to meet him. See what it's like if you know what I think might have happened. I think maybe in saying that maybe one was like, oh, we want to be the ones that say it, and they just put it out really quick right now the plan was just because I know she would wanna break it on her own show. But the fact that she didn't I just think to anyone listening was I okay, you're already vice president. I mean, you're you're barely on your way. They're just maybe word that little bit different behaviors. It's really not that big the big deal is she's actually moving there. She said, I'm moving to Singapore. So she's a Vegas resident she just had a daughter her boyfriend. They're not married. I guess. No. Okay. Her boyfriend, John news fight still. He just had a fight in Boise, Idaho and trains at extreme tour. So I I don't know. I don't know if that's an official movement. It'd be great to have me on the show soon to just kind of get those details. I I don't see your mother being away from her daughter. She was asked about fighting. She said it would take a lot to give me out. And I just she says I've never fought for the money. I just don't have the desire right now. She said that here before plenty of times, just you know, the food putting their body through all that stuff. And now the head injury separate yourself from the kids. So I I don't know what's going to happen. That would be the house. She does here in Las Vegas. But. Congrats to her, ma'am. So lots of news. In fact, I think some stories from yesterday. Go ahead. Well, I was gonna say and then Johnny going to say Johnny Cochran Johny Hendricks. He's gotten opponent. Now. Let's cut a Cochran. Yes. For w key WB k f f. And. They're the main event Dakota Cochran is filling in for. Hold on to a contract dispute. I didn't want that LeBron brownie fight to get. I thought that's what they going. Do. It's maybe break up that fight. But I kinda liked it. So I'm glad they went that route. That's good. You could fill see Johnny. Obviously Brennan would have been a lot of fun. But it just didn't work out. Yeah. I'm just glad Johnny gets a fight and kudos to Cochran for stepping up and fighting on what today's it was. Yeah. He he wasn't on the car. Right. I think so oh it was. Well, I guess that's even better. We have to train fighters ready to get out. I'm talking to. Bell all right now. And it looks like we'll have to reschedule our guest as of right now they're having connecting. They're having trouble connecting fill in Israel. He's already there. And I understand. International. It's I mean right now, I would imagine there about twelve hours ahead. So it's it could be ten pm right now. And if they're not able to get a hold of them or if they're just having trouble connecting then that's fine. We'll see we can reschedule them in. And we we started the show it's a two hour show. So we may have time off to let them know here when I get a chance to type the the next sixty to seventy five minutes are wide open because we would need at least ten with them before we get the Paul fell to fell. There will be way at the end. So guys if anything, you know, one door closes the other one opens we have our lists for wrestling. When I'm ranked teams it yesterday while I'm a little bit of fun with that Marcel from Houston emailed me his all read his off and the others. You are welcome to call in eight six six five two two two eight four six and share yours. I didn't like this experiment. Danny ochre will give us the criteria. That busted open us. We won't. Apply it to ours. Because I didn't give you that originally. So I wouldn't expect any of you to write to absorb everything Danny says via Dave Greco and Mark Henry. And then the go back out and do the quick homework assignment. So I just want you to blurt out your ten names. And if you feel one of them stands out as that's my guy. That's I'm one of the great. You know, you don't have to do a countdown of ten you can do it alphabetical. You can just how ever you wrote them have fun with it. All right. And I've already seen a couple of this. And I right away. I thought well that's dumb. But I realized don't say that George because that's who enter tain them. Yep. And I didn't give the criteria of. This guy was a box office draw pay per view. I guy on TV. He broke barrier. I didn't say all that. So it wouldn't be fair to to. Critique anyone you know, if you just woke up, and I used to get a kick out of the godfather and his hose, right? Mostly for the hose, it was one dollars one of the I didn't even know I can tell you if you you could shoot a double got trivia. One of those signs Dan tomah held to a wrestling event back in nineteen ninety sales rose. It was I made an admit one ticket. But a big big poster board I made a little like one of those adamant one tickets, and it says to the whole train. Yeah. Hey, you gotta take your shot. Like, if value if you wanna get on TV, do you wanna party with the dudes? I biggest DX what do you want to party with the dudes with the troops, sixty nine shirts. San suck it, and it's a bunch of dudes or the guy with a bunch of chicks. I might need some help. Hey, saying you can add something here. This is a great. This is a great thing you're on as far as your list criteria here, George, you're right. Criteria is important. And I will say that I would argue that I prefer this kind of what I do in my own podcast of the protect podcast, by the way, recording episode one hundred later today. Congratulations. Thank you, not a top five episodes, just just a breakdown one. But but we do a lot of list episodes and the criteria. We always use in general, even though the topics always changed. It's your list. What is your top five? Because Georgia's saying everyone's is going to be different. And that's important because I was looking I didn't hear the episode of busted. Open but just by looking at their list, guys. Just by those two lists. I can already tell that. There was a strong criteria. And it was the criteria. Most people go they go top five or top ten. We'll what is the top ten, and we will those insecure because we're thinking about of all time, right? And we we don't want. We don't wanna look bad. We're gonna pick the best possible options. But when you go that route you end up with kinda the same list, and that for the most part is what I saw with a the Greco whoever ounce did it, and I don't like my personally. I Mark Henry, I don't I don't like when lists are all like if we came up here and hall had similar lists. Even if they were quote, unquote, right list that wouldn't be very entertaining for me. Participating wouldn't be very entertaining for me listening. So yeah. With Georgia's Saint make it your list that make your list, and if you want to say thing or two about each one great, we just every person can't get seven to ten minutes or well, only get two three lists. But the quicker you can go through it. Then the better. Did you make a list Danny offers? Did we assign you Homer to or you just sitting there going to hope? They don't ask. I didn't make a list. I never I I think we were talking about it after the show. I didn't really watch wrestling growing up again. I mean, I know the biggest names, but I wouldn't know how to rank any of them. You know what I mean? The acceptable. Guys, are should we make them do one? Now, if it's going to be dumb. I I was running by some golden era stuff. I think post show yesterday. Right, Dan, you were like, I don't know that guy. I don't know that guy. Like, I don't know if we get a big, no. No, I'm done. Lime dunk, Dan. If you want your list right before hall, feld, you either have to reveal that right before Paul Felder or right after Paul fell to. So you're going to go to the end you're going to hear a lot of names at least thirty no one called. It's thirty nine year. Actually, we may overlap. But so it should be pretty easy to even cheat. If you had on the time of Danny's list, number four, John CENA's left arm. I don't remember where I saw it. I know one was Marcel from Houston his via Email, maybe the other ones were in the chat. And I do want to talk about the chat yesterday's chat. Somebody got put on time out. It was me. Not Dan, Tom, and you have to remember that. I people come to this show, and we can have them over the phone. But instead they come here and not only do they appear live. For for more than usual spots, usually like five minutes, ten minutes twelve fifteen on on most shows. But oftentimes they'll come here and co host not only will we talk everything about what's going on with them. But they'll chime in on different topics the daily debate. That's a lot to ask if someone of their time nowadays, and even though it's not like the old days where we were all in the chat, and they actually have we used to set up a laptop for them. And they could see what was going on. You just never know that if they tweeted something out to their fans. Hey, check it out. I'll be on this show. You know? And and next thing, you know, people are seeing things that are just what I would call inappropriate. What? What was that? What was being asked of us to ask? Brian could have been just worded differently. And actually, he touched on a few of these topics. But I can't be reading that man. I can't be reading that. And then hoping someone else doesn't not that's just not fair to us because we just don't know how they're going to take it. All right. I'll give you an example to Gerald Harris. Good friend of the show. Here tweeted something at MMA junkie. He's gotta a fight coming up at bell tour and then. He didn't tag me or you not even the show. You just said adamant may junkie, and then he re tweeted that. And then finally he put my name on there. But I could see some of the comments, and I saw Gerald say, oh man when they need me. I'm there for them. He's probably joking. But now that I'm trying to get some love, you know. And so I go full tag me. You know, like, I I'm not everywhere. You see what I'm saying? But you see us online that could get misconstrued. I through the LL because you just never know. But that communication social media. You just have to be a little careful, we really value our relationships. What did he say? I haven't gone back to see he might be gone. I don't know. But I told him I'd be in touch 'cause he's right? We have always had maintained a good relationship with him. The wins losses. Retirements to comebacks doesn't matter. I hope you can respect that. All right. So it may have been I'm not to me. I can't go into yesterday's chat. 'cause that'll take me forever. So we really do have a list tweeted at EMI junkie, George Adam Rachel radio and just put your top ten or top ten fighters. Just the ones that entertain you. But to be official to to start this off and be official about it. Danny. Why don't you read us the criteria that David Greco? And Mark Henry used on the busted open show for how they were going to come up with their list. And that's basically the idea that I'm stealing here. I actually don't have to read it to actually have a clip from their show of them better. Cool. Oh, really quick before you start not to interrupt. But again the criteria. We came up with five things entering performance boxoffice influence on the business, Mike work, and like I say. Damn he could've said it. Any faster writing down here? In ring performance influence box office presence and history. Do say it was really quick before you start not to interrupt. But again the criteria. We came up with five things entering performance boxoffice influence on the business. Mike work and legacy. Mike work legacy. And legacy, by the way, I'm sending out a tweet now from at junkie radio follow us, if you're not already and send us your top ten professional wrestlers there, especially you guys live listening to the show I'm going to be checking this periodically. So I'll be ready whenever you calling me for that later. Okay. So that's what they used. You don't have to use that. Oh, I think we just want to say what's your top ten like favorites? You know? So the ones that you just cheered for or booed. But even though you booed 'em. You enjoy doing it. So shall I go first or do you want to lead off goes down or? Optus because I guess this is the list I threw together, I really didn't go back and do any homework. This is a list that I three together. And it happened to be really close to Marquette, re the former pro wrestler and. I won't say bodybuilder. But powerlifter in fact, do we want to do we want to read off their lists? I do that. Let's let's see what they came up with you have that Danny? I do I have another recording. Who do you want first? Mark. Mark. I love your top ten for those who didn't hear it again. I mean, I thought it's fantastic. I open this four wrestlers in your top ten that are not on my top ten at number ten. You have Sean Michaels little little low from at number nine. You have Bruno San Martino at number eight John CENA at number seven zero at number six stone cold Steve Austin at number five whole Cogan number four. Andre the giant as a matter of fact, I might even be more now to look at it. That's not on my list, the undertaker at three at number two gorgeous, George and at number one RIC flair. Undertaker gorgeous Vic where I think I got them all let me count one two three four five six seven eight nine ten, and can you give us days, please? I can't hear you. My top ten ton Ohashi at ten Kurt angle at nine the rocket eight Shawn Michaels at seven dusty at six Terry funk at five stone cold Steve Austin at four Luth as the Hooker at three hole Cogan at number two and RIC flair at one. Can you do to the way you're going to catch this? This. My top ten Tana Ashi at ten Kurt angle at nine the rocket eight Shawn Michaels at seven dusty at six Terry funk at five stone cold Steve Austin at four Luth as the Hooker at three HOGAN at number two and RIC flair at one. Michael's right. All right. So let me just say something about them. Because I I heard there episode they're on at nine AM eastern live. And then they re them at noon. I catch the replay. This is what Mark Kennedy said, you know. And so obviously, some of those paraphrase, John Michael just incredible former any I think he called the Mr. wrestlemainia he said Bruno San Martino, and of course, right away. I was driving on Bruno. I didn't know how old school, and we're gonna go, and but then he had a stat that just blew me away. And I went, oh, I feel you now. Okay. 'cause now I knew they had a criteria out there. And and and I think that's why Dave was really in awe of Mark's lowest. He said Bruno San Martino, it was either one hundred twenty nine or one hundred thirty nine sold out the garden Madison Square Garden, and so if you think about it for the McMahon family who was they were based in the northeast they used to have. Territories. I think the Awa was like in the Minnesota area the. WCW which was NWF before they were along the eastern coast and the south the southeast. And then we had the von Eric's. I forget what there's what's called. Something resting Stanford wrestling or something like that stampede think was Calgary or something like that. So everybody, you know, they had these. Territories the mid south and Vincent man's was before he basically conquered the world, he was the northeast. So imagine what that meant to them. He must have been almost what RT's was to the for Titas and Dana white at one point. Like, this is our guy, you know. And remember Tito Ortiz is like, hey, you got a great fight in March. Can you fight in July? That's I've may is San Martino the garden was probably like every month. Maybe twice a month. Who knows what? And so have you selling it out? I could see the impact that he had seen a-. He went on to say clothing man, the titles that he's one. He was just, you know, the it from like the turn of the millennium the rock he said, he would have put the rock high higher wasn't any part of the nation domination always. Oh, yeah. So I think he was saying like, hey, man. He's my, homey. But this is what I gotta say. He said the rock just didn't have as long over run as a lot of the other fighters, maybe and. Is that what is it? Yeah. That's what he said. He goes, otherwise it would have been higher. But you know, he said, obviously like, I was incredible stone cold Steve Austin. I don't know what he said their hall coming at this point. It was just like do I need to say anything like these are great, great guys. Andre the giant. He said the undertaker he went out of his way to saying that the undertaker now he says the undertaker's good friend, his I know that Mark Henry lives in Austin, Texas and undertake alludes in Houston. I think so I think it was just he's known for such a long time the longevity the wrestlemainia streak until recently got broken. And he said, I think Dave piped-in, but Mark agrees. It's probably the greatest character that the WWE ever came up with like where they gave them something. And the guy ran with it. So last was gorgeous, George, and he said gorgeous, George, you know, how he had pins in his hair. Yeah. If he flicked those pins in the air. People would get them kind of like souvenirs. He said they've gone for seventy thousand the ones that have been authenticated. He goes, this is a guy that actually the he goes this was back in the day of bingo halls and small auditoriums. He goes, this is the first guy ever take us to stadiums and television. So, you know, you're hearing all that. And so even though it's old school, you're going. Okay. I see what he's saying. He he was a he was a a mover and a shaker, you know, for his era he initiated the he'll role of of being booed like you you showed up to see this guy lose. And you sit you've heard Muhammad Ali say I was influenced by that guy. And you heard RIC flair say I was influenced by Mohammed Ali and you've heard. Floyd Mayweather say. I was influenced by RIC flair and you've heard Conor McGregor say basically take the page out of Floyd. You know, the whole the whole money thing. So you see a lineage between pro wrestling boxing to you may, you know, back and forth and all of these guys originated from guy like gorgeous, Georgia and the persona that he had RIC flair being number one. And again, I think nothing needs to be said, then we got the Dave's and he started with Tana hockey. And he started prefacing, you know, like, I know you're gonna hate me, and blah, blah, blah. And and I was thinking, oh, he's not he's not comfortable with his because everyone was blown away by Marx, including myself. But you know, he explained because he actually said, I know you're all thought I was saying no key or some of the current guys. But he gave his explanation for what Tana she's done in Japan. And and all that, I guess I just would have never guessed that guy. But he says it's kept new Japan in the business. There's a historical significance of the contributions of Japanese wrestling. And so that's why he went with that name, then he went to Kurt angle than the rock. Shawn michaels. And then he said dusty and dusty pain Mark Henry because Marquette said thousand mind number eleven because he's a dusty just had so much swag. And they started saying some real cool things that he used to say Chilean, beans, kings, and queens. It was real cool. Kind of reminded me of when he would take the mic dusty Rhodes was pretty damn good. I mean, he grabbed it he could sell you on a fight, right, then and they're all out of shape, but never tired. Always performed was real good one Terry funk. Same thing. I grew up watching him a lot in the movies, but he just had a real tough guy persona Manso. I understood what he was coming from stone cold anyone to lose says, again, all school and know, the modern listeners prying that fool, you know, but I did remember Luth as and I think Luther has held the record for most titles before flair eventually broke it, and I don't know if seen as tight flare or eventually broke that, but I I know Luth as hung in there for having a belong. So it was kind of like an old school shot out. He did mention that told a story about other wrestlers who how excited they would get for being just in one of those. I think it was a Royal rumble type, but they didn't call it that it was that aura like like about a Royal. What was it like to be? It was like he had a persona almost like. If you happen to catch, Jordan, maybe on the tail and you know, and like, hey, what was it like to be on the core with Jordan or something like that whole can Rick flair? They both just were unanimous on RIC flair. And and that was it. So as I'm they had done that on. Yesterday show. I prepared mine on Tuesdays when I heard what they're gonna do. And I wrote them down quick. I wrote Brock lows ner. Rick flair hulk HOGAN, Andre the giant John CENA, the rock Austin. Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, and the undertaker I thought about Randy macho, man savage. But I didn't want to go back because these were the ones that stood out and and savage at that time, I think if I would've pulled over really thought about it. I may have squeezed them in there. And I may not have I don't know. But I'm just gonna if I did I think heart would be the one that takes the fall, but hard I remember winning a lot of titles and just kind of representing that guy that was just serious wind up being a heel heartfelt. So he I loved them as a as a tag team, whereas a singles wrestler. And and I guess macho man passed away now for what fifteen twenty years twenty years. Maybe ten I don't know. But I don't know. It's been twenty. Yeah. Yeah. Amazing character as well. I mean to always be. Talking like heated and just constantly. He had Elizabeth, and I was who she was. But anyway, I guess he would have been my number eleven of anybody said who's your number eleventh? And then after hearing Mark Kennedy, I guess my twelve would be Mamie dusty who knows? But so when I heard Mark sells like that for sure these are going to laugh at mine, I was thinking of calling in, and I couldn't believe it. I matched up on all of them except he had Bruno and he had gorgeous, George, and I had heart and Brock. I kinda still stand by Brock. Fuck r-acton Maki the ones list, he's literally been feeding on like, I think you just if you listen to them in July, and they go next year's wrestlemainia. And they're all they always have Brooke as one of the two, and who are you gonna pin, you know, who you're gonna put up against him. And and I've been hearing that for like three or four years. So I thought for sure like maybe because he just doesn't find as often and isn't speak much. So the Mike work's not there. Well, I guess he's got to be the box office for sure is there. I don't know. But that's fine. Go ahead. Go ahead. What's yours? Oh, no, no. I'll tell you what hold onto yours. All wait. You're listening to MMA junkie radio on Sirius XM's fight nation channel three.

Just go to Sirius XM dot com slash sports today in click add to my count. Paul elders back on the Mike this week. They must be loving him. Because he's getting a lot of these gigs in the come off, a pay per view. You'd think they'd say, hey, you know. Seeing a few months fellow could do your camp or whatever. But he's I like him. He's doing great not that. I disagree decision. It just. Comes very likable. There's there's others in. I don't know if that's a message to the others like pick up your game. This is becoming one of our main cats. You know what I mean? So I'm happy for him. He joins us now on the hotline. What's up Felder? How're you doing? Guys. How are you? Good man how we're gonna have to start. Introducing you more as the U of C. Analyst versus the UCLA. Wait, you're getting a lot of work. Things got switched up. I got to do my first pay per view. I was awesome. It'd be at the garden their New York man, and I had already had Denver books. So quick turnaround. Right back out on the UFC shadow now on the way to the hotel and going right in their fight or meeting. So I so I had to get on early with you guys. But then. Things are going to start slowing down. Obviously my fight but announced. And I've been in training this whole time anyway, but things will start picking up in the next couple of weeks after UFC Denver for sure. Have they told you Paul why they like you? What what what they feel are your strengths? I just know that you're entertaining for me, and you get the job done. But obviously, I'm not a producer behind the scenes the director. But what what did they relate to you? Amazing good, my charm. How I look into my new beard that I've been rock and really has nothing to do with being well-spoken or intelligence about fighting just gotta just get a look. So those guys. I think I'm I think just you know, I I know the game I get in there still currently, and I'm very familiar with the fighters and what they're going through. And I think I speak to the to the process of what these guys and girls are going through to get into the octagon, and and just the pressure and all that. So I really try to chime in on that what what what these athletes have to go through on really can acknowledge what's going on in the moment. Maybe more so than other color commentators. Just because how active I still am. And yeah, it's just been fun, man. And I get along really well with everybody, and I try to be a a somebody that's easy to work with. All right. So we already talked about the good stuff. What kind of feedback? Have they given you in terms of just constructive criticism? Well, you know, just always the one note, I always get is just trying to be more and more prepared and get better at notes and things like that. And having having some outside info on on these athletes, not just their fighting styles, and what they do well in the gone, but who they are as people, and I tried to do a little more of that with Madison Square Garden, and and just you know, I wanted to really step up my game that one, and I you know, I thought it went pretty well. It's so easy to work with Joe, and John, you know, normally I'm with my man, Brendan who's just as easy to work with. But it was so much more fun to mix things up. I like going back and forth and working with new people. Right. Yeah. Poff elders. Our guests here, and I haven't made junkie radio on not only does he call the fights. He always he also fights. And he'll be fighting. He's got to fight that's been booked at UC to thirty two versus James Vick. And that's on December twenty ninth this week, and he'll be calling UFC fighting at one thirty nine in Denver, Colorado. All right goes, would you have for Paul Felder Paul wanted to talk a little bit about preparation for fighting and for broadcasting anytime something new I know like early on in our show we used to just prep a ton. And then after a while you get into Brigham learn new things and things start to change. So for me. My question is what's the biggest difference from what you did preparation wise for your very first fight and your very first broadcasting gig to what you do now. Why as far as the fight? I can I can tell you from my my first amateur fight. I I didn't know what the hell. I was doing. I was still drinking on the weekend hanging out with my friends, and then I would train all week and. Puke. And after my first amateur Pike's ourselves off that I had no idea about dryland Russia's and all that kind of stuff is now, obviously, you know, eight ten weeks out. I don't talk to drop of anything. I eat super clean, and I probably in my first pro profile was over trained trying to prepare for five minute round. And as far as broadcasting the first one which was contender series. I that was I had to do most of my preparation on the flight from Scotland to Vegas because I was in training camp the whole time and bought the Sunday before the contender series which aired on Tuesday. So from Sunday to Tuesday, I had to like cram. And studied these guys. Luckily, it was only five fights, which was doable. Now, you know, these cars that are twelve thirteen fights. You know, I'm starting a couple of weeks out on by preparation and watching and studying notes and things like that. A guy like James Vick. When it comes to per preparing for a guy like him. He's got a unique body frame one that you can you almost can't understand how he could make that weight. I know you come from a great, Jim. I know you guys have tons of guys. But how many guys do you have that can mimic that style? And have that body type that you're going to be working with? We have a couple of moisture I guys train there and come through that are about six two six three good kicks. Good range as Gerald Moore. Chartres? I think six one Mike big erodes sticks. One of these guys are bigger than me, even bigger than Vick, you know, their middleweight. So I just have to work with bigger bodies, and you know, deal with even harder in the long run. Also Brandon Allen who's elevate Cam. He I think he's going to be back in camp. Same time. I am. I hope he is at least maybe I can at least bring him in. He's a great farm part him. And he's good on the ground. He's got good jokes. And I think he's six, but his reach is is ridiculous is reaches actually longer than the taller James Vick. So he's good to work with just 'cause I gotta get inside of that range and try to deal with his long punches. And that's what Nick does really. Well, I've got a really good job. Good Br rear uppercut, good knees. So he he was really helping me when I was preparing for him the first time round. So I'm hoping we can get him back into in the camp for this next one time for the for the fight analyst, Dan, Tom, Dan, what do you ever Paul Felder? Hey, paul. I'm looking at. This fight words located actually kind of interests me the most about this booking because not only should it. Be a fun fight obviously between you two. But you and James I would argue probably have some of the bigger wake cuts. Notably. Maybe in the division. I would say. Obviously people who spent time around you know, that you're a sizable lightweight, but I think that secret is kind of out now, you know, especially with a little scale thing that was posted this last week and have used. Stupid on my part, by the way. Well, let me ask you. But I don't wanna I don't wanna out you hear Paul. But, but, but you know, we've seen the commissions, especially when fights take place in California. You know, drew dober- is a guy that comes to mind in your division who kinda got got got nicked, and a recommended a strong recommendation, if you will to move up in any of these kind of coming into your place far as prep, you know, making sure you wanna be down a loc- when they come sniffing around one hundred percent man that was the first thing that we address before we signed the contract Saugus. Shelby in Jaffna, Vince, Gill everybody just making sure that you know, the fight was even going to be able to take place or they were going to give us a hard time to one thing that made us all confident was at least my opponent is doing the same thing. If not worth you know, what I'm saying? So coming into this. It's not like I'm getting matched up with somebody where I'm going to be forty five pounds heavier than in the cage on fight night. He's James Vick pike cuts even even more weight than I have to. But obviously I'm going to try to be on top. On my my way to Marty trying to watch my diet when I stepped on that scale, and in New York, it was a joke, and I I still have my sweat pants on. And I was also out. Eating the night before I'm down probably about five or six pounds lighter than what it said on that yell normally what I'm trying to during the week. You know what I mean that was a weekend. I was traveling. So that's not true. Description of what I weigh right now. One hundred percent of fluctuations for you guys especially a off season or at the edge of camp. So to speak is is pretty crazy. I think I think he art. Art training camp. I'm training three times a day. I'm not going to be weighing anywhere near what it said on that one hundred percent. But just one more question. I guess in regards to your experience, you know, now fighting at both ways, obviously, you know, you fought welterweight, Mike Perry. And you know, I'm sure you had a lot of lightweight rounds in training camp with Donald Sironi. So in my opinion, that probably makes you one of the most qualified people on the planet to to weigh in on this fight. So, you know, you don't have to give a pick or I'll let that be up to you, Paul. But, but can you give us maybe a little preview of what you see being keys or how you see this fight. Maybe even going down. Yeah. Understand. I give you you know, kind of a breakdown what I think should play out how might play out. But. I'm calling the fight. I don't wanna show any favoritism obviously share the octagon with Perry. And I am still friends with cowboy and and trained with him for years. But I think there's just a a huge discrepancy in the talent on the ground there. I think if cowboy wants to have safe night and go in there in front of his hometown, Denver and get that win get this fight to the ground, and and use your jujitsu, even if you're on your back, triangle applaud arm bars or all ridiculous. Uses kicks on his out at rain. Keep the distance from Pera don't let them get in your grill for Mike. He's got to get past us kicks. Check those kicks and pressure. Cowboys on the opening bell. That's gotta do when the opening bell. You gotta be in Cowboys faced on punches. We've seen up a bit of a first aronie in the past. He knows that he'll come into this fight. And they've had a little bit of time training together. Which doesn't mean anything? I was yelling things are completely different than in the training role. But yeah, I sure am bothering McCurry and Cowboys, you know, he's gotta use his kicks and level change. And try to get the flight to the ground. There you have it and ninety guys check me I introduced Paul as fighting James Vick on December twenty ninth a UC to thirty two in Las Vegas. He's actually fighting a UFC two thirty three in California Hawaii, I didn't get in January. So because when Dan was asking him about the weight, I was like, well, Nevada's not that nosy. And then I looked at oh shit big big old pie in my face. Well, these that gives you an extra month, Paul Felder. Yeah. All right. My man. Well, listen congrats. We really are happy for all the success. You're having as a broadcaster. And I know that you will have to curtail for the next few months as you do your camp. That's fine. Because we've gotten we've gotten you on quite a few shows. And I thought that was huge to have your first pay per view in the garden. Now, he's got to get you to fight in the garden one time. But that would that would be something I wanna do and in the future for sure after experiencing that man that that lasts pay per view that arenas, definitely everything. People say that. Oh, yeah. I agree. Just know they go to New York in November that seems to be pretty consistent. So if you wanna map out your your fight scheduled for next year, maybe January, June and November. There you go. There you go. All right. But thank you so much for stopping by. I know you got to get to work. So we'll let you go. But thanks as always for your time. We appreciate it. I think you guys always love talking to you guys. Thanks so much. You too, buddy. Take care. That's Paul Felder. Follow him on Twitter at Felder ball, the reverse of his name. Let them know you heard him on the m may junkie radio show. We're going to take our last break it's ever made junkie radio on fire nation challenge. Three stay close. Injuries.

Let's let's let's go. Let's go to Kevin in Chicago. He's been waiting whom I mad at him. And then the second hour goes we had the reshuffle because Paul Felder. Well, you Matt Damon yourself. You're the one that told me Paul folder can go. So talk to Kevin Chicago. What's up Kevin? How you doing? What's up guys down at some Shire's? Sump Chicago, Garros, what's to go like in Vegas. It can be heroes. The wreak Greek food. There's one place that we have here that people. Okay. I'm gonna have once and I had it. And actually guided in Amsterdam. Yeah. Pretty good. But I don't remember being that good that I need to have ever in my life. Chicago style. I don't know about. They they mainly got the buffets stuff. Like that. Oh, man a lot. There's food aid great restaurants here houses, galore, what kind of stuff. Do you like? I don't know. I think Vegas, I think alike high-quality casino food. But I think you're gonna got like a lot of local like mama top type shop. Like that. There's fine cuisine in Vegas now. Companion for with with each other the days of the buffet. That's just like people with hangovers that are just trying to shake a headache, and they just want to get food in their belly. So that can must handling four Advil or something like that. But yeah. Okay. Well, I'll get to my point that this conversed Robbie Lawler slight. I hear people kind of talking point is that. Oh, why are you ask refined Lawler because Lalla doesn't talk much much trash? I mean, they made a bunch of other sites. And I hear that from the fans and here even Emma media saying it in my thing is I mean, that's like the best way that they can make got the takedown defense to get one shot knocked out power. So I'm really looking forward to that flight. I mean, I don't really need talking back talk in drama to go with what do you think? I think it all depends on what the UFC ones if they want Ben to succeed. I can think of a lot of other matchups that probably would've worked out better. If they don't then maybe Robbie. Robbie's very tough outing for them to do. I think you can tell what they want based on that that matchup. Yeah. They could've done them favors. Yeah. What about like kind of trash talk? How like oh. There's gonna be no trash talk. So it's not gonna be good rather team face until because be a bunch of drama involved. Any for me? I like in the match. That's that's my side. That's what I like Dan's. Opposite of me goes what are you? I'm in the middle in the middle. But it doesn't make sense because that's one of the main reasons that they brought him in. And then they put him in a position where the guy that's not going to do that. Why leads me to believe that they're not really interested in current succeeding too much? And I was actually arguing on the side on the other side that we should have a that. There should be trash talk. Not because I'm into that per se. But because we need more point was that we need people the headline cards and not just for one time. And then getting beat up when we want some long jeopardy out of these guys. So I don't know if that's the best way to get that from either guy, even though I say that and I know people disagree with it. That's fine. I have no problem with it. But I will say I also look at. The analytics traffic report and just those stories are they click. So I know that's I think the does the same thing. So they appeal to that low. I'm a lower common denominator all admitted man. That's just that's me. You know? But anyway, all right. Kevin thanks for the call. The thought you could have done a lot better by participating in the top ten wrestler thing. But you didn't.

We're starting off the second hour. We're gonna go back to our project for the day. Our homework from yesterday, which was to come up with ten ten of our favorite wrestlers ever. We didn't really give criteria. We just kinda stole the idea from busted open, and I already gave mine rehash mine. And then we'll get goes, Dan and anybody else that wants to call in and participate via social media. Dan's wanna touring that I'm keeping an eye on it to mine were in no particular order, by the way. Brock leser. Ric flair hulk HOGAN, Andre the giant John CENA, the rock Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, and the undertaker, and I would say if somebody would say, how'd you pick those I'd say I went off mostly popularity, but I think the impact and also most of these guys were title holders of Andrei. But you know, what goes does this a lot the old pull someone off the street and ask them have you ever heard of this? I feel like all of mine would be like. Yup. Yup. Heard of him. Uh-huh. Yeah. You see what I'm saying? Like when Dave went the route of Tana Ohashi. I think somebody go. Oh, yeah. Here's more of a hard core thing remember expanded yesterday that Meltzer would love his but the common fan, maybe not the common fan. Probably wouldn't Lou says either or Bruno Sammartino, but maybe burn they had criteria and we didn't. So again, we have one hour to go. You can hit us up at at junkie radio or personally at Dan Tomomi at m e junkie, George at the goes, don't check goes goes rarely goes on Twitter. Maybe not Danny auto or something like that. I think Danny's more of a presence. So goes, I guess we waiting for years along. So go ahead with Sears guy. I did do it based on that criteria. You said yesterday, which is very similar to there's all right? So I went with triple h Shawn Michaels where we don't be like David Greco, no play generation X fan over there. Shawn michaels. Yeah. Roddy piper? Well, he's number eight on. I didn't do no particular order. I was gonna say one. Stone cold. Macho man, Randy savage. Bret hart. Ric flair. Thunderlips? Or hogan. The better career. You could also went with Hollywood HOGAN. Yeah. That's true. And the last one is probably one that I don't think you guys may have I like Jake Roberts. Thought it was interesting. There was a good wrestler in his day. I don't know if you've seen what he's done lightly, but, but, you know, bring in the whole persona with the snake and all that I thought it was pretty crazy. So he was my last one all right? Dan, Tom girl up next Jake the snake Roberts fits one of those where he's classic. I like his story, and he should be on my list. But the fact that I wasn't watching him or have like another connection to him. Good finishing move to a strong connection to him. Yeah. I leave him out. You know, you mentioned the Japanese one here's one that I left left out. And I'm renting my list, real quick. This is the last honorable just Nobuhiko Takada. I mean, he he's guy Hickson Gracie at the first pride event. I mean, he was a new Japan guy. He really helped with the shoot style. Wrestling really open opened up that world as far as, you know, just new Japan pro wrestling, even to shoot style fighting so but again, I don't have a connection that guy that makes martial arts. So here's mine number ten hours. Go hipster pick at the Andy Kaufman because he his his he he wanted to wrestle women. Okay. That was his gimmick. Like who who else has that gimmick and in historical references, you know, he was really he brought to the end of your that southern kind of market with Lawler there. And that little snot actually did a lot for pro wrestling. It really historically it actually brought a lot of attention to it and really took another level to lawler's career to another level who you know, commentator to the golden air. So I stand by the hipster pick. I gotta give love to the Mexican giving up to that either. Lucia doors man who've been to Guerrero, nine cuvee juice who've into Guerrero, who's the WCW Erez one of the more smaller guys. And you know, you gotta give love to the smaller. People shots the flyweights may show. So want to give you know staying in that theme giving to them some of the most fun match ups ever number Ken shamrock man, Ken shamrock. I mean, I knew he was part of the reason why I got into Neubauer MA. I knew about you see her cage fighting which is why when a guy named shamrock came from cage fighting key step down to the WWE. Ooh, this guy's bad as he's one of the real dudes. He's got real submission former internet intercontinental champ. That's right. And the ad one of my favorite moves called the hurricane auto. Yep. Yep. And you know, what you could argue that a lot of people probably among my generation that got drawn to again MA show. Circling back may. Kind of got drawn to the Tito Ortiz and shamrock trilogy. Let's be honest. They were drubbings the what was what was having people by was Tito Ortiz doing his thing. Of course, take away from him. But also shamrock bringing his people stone cold actually edge number seven edge entering to the crowd. I don't know why I really loved it. I had ever followed his character didn't really like where it went. And I think they made him get on the Royds. But I liked when he was just like a slim dude entering through. The crowd was sleek. He'd spear people. It was better than Goldberg speier and Goldberg was the guy getting all the credit for it. So edge stone cold I came with that air. How can you not like a guy who's sending a positive message to children by stone? Call talking himself in the third person drinking and any getting behind the wheels of cars, I can get behind that guy the rock. That's what. Yeah. That's what he did. No. He would say. The rock. Of course, you know, rocky my via, you know, we didn't know what was he Samoan? What does he Hawaiian? What what does he what it didn't matter? He was just awesome. I think he captivated a lot of people Kane. I mean, I can't. The seven foot giants when they would you know, undertaker I feel like he's went from like six nine six ten they jumped up to seven foot when Kane made us thing. Then after that air came about that now, I think undertakes back down to sixteen or something. I don't know where he stands, but it was cool to see a guy that didn't talk being there for live for one of his entrances and feeling the flames like that was cool. And then when he did talk it was like job is my lover or whatever he would say with him in pallbearer, right? I think I think he was his name was Glenn Jacobs. And I think he played basketball to universities. They're gonna see is again, Cam and. If I'm not mistaken call. Yeah. That's right. Yeah. You're right. You're you're right, sir. Number three, Mick Foley. Of course, you know, all his characters that's kind of one where I will say take one guy number two. The first pro ever got involved with shouts amount. Go Paul who got me into it. You know, babysitting me it was his birthday yesterday. Ted Diaz the original. Maybe that's right him. And hacksaw Jim Duggan. We're we're we're we're buck in for that spot, but I gave it to Ted. And of course, number one, a yo razor Ramon the best. One of the best has lies ladder match summer, slam ninety four Shawn Michaels to his his drunk limousine entrance to fight Goldberg WCW that that did was the man. Okay. All right. Let me read Marcel Marcel from Houston. He mailed me his. Great that I just had her here. Ready to go. Do you want me to buy some time with another listener? Let's yeah. Drew jitsu at hip hop since seventy six at us up on Twitter at may junkie radio for those who wanna follow. No particular order the rock stone cold Roddy, piper goes, number one, stone cold Roddy piper. Who I thought was goes was going to be number one. If he had to put a number next of had to. Yeah, he might be. Well, no he'd be number two. Wow. Ric flair would being right Bret the hitman Hart for drew Rick flair. Speaking of the also has triple h like goes giving some undertaker some love he gives HOGAN love. Razor ramon. And and staying there's one thing. Got it. He didn't make my list, but he is within my time era. There's a lot of great ones on. There was some that. I just liked and they are so off the wall. I'd have to come up with a top one hundred and I probably could do other guys list. Yeah. Ours. We're gonna be obvious. Yeah. Like earlier about the godfathers really nothing to his wrestling. Loved his entrance those right? He was Papa Sean go to all that stuff Marcel from Houston. He's in no particular order. Jake, the snake Roberts the million dollar man, who is teddy Bianchi whole Cogan, Bret the hitman Hart the ultimate warrior took awhile to hear that name. Mr perfect. Yeah. I wanted to put him on rowdy Roddy. Piper. The rock the undertaker and stole stone cold Steve Austin. That's a solid list. Mr. perfect is between 'perfect and Jake the snake at that very end. Yeah. And then do you have any more then? Just from the chat. None more from Twitter unless you want to jump over to YouTube, Chad, I know, Don. Kind of back. We're gonna take this call. And then I'll go peep at I thought I did see something in the chance. So this Dan in Oregon what's up, Dan? How you doing? Then you might want to take the YouTube chapters 'cause I'm gonna try and rail this lesson conversation going on here. Colin. Well, not just the will. We can get back to it. Yeah. All right. Well, everyone all the show up to a party. So we'll do and I tried to make martial arts. Go back to the party. But go ahead. What what what's your name? Even call it party. I get lead. We got about flight. Wait, man. It sounds like they're just about done. You know, we got so many months left. And so I think it would only be fit or up to all bring up one of our favorite. Why wait by ever in all start off the conversation? We gotta go all the way back to you. And you were heading to Ireland and is after Conor becomes kinda big like, oh who's going to be the main end. I don't know how it happened. But we ended up with Patti Lynn with the middle at the I thought it was like the day up. The main of the week smoker. The tragedy with the main event. Employees got got next. That's right. October two thousand fifty go ahead. I got I got the wrong though, big time where the week mocha. And I went out there put on what the greatest bites ever if you know anyone who says, oh, I don't like grappling. I just wanna watch em strike by who did go scramble after scramble takedown him choking towns back and forth on the one of my favorite. And so I just gotta show love I know out on the team get from ws tabby has been retired of and yet. So I wanna hear favorite in. Maybe it's a weird observation, but at yield like the the taller of not that UC they you are at feel. Small flyweight in their given the big the fly. Wait the chance to move up. It crazy. Yeah. So both pick on that today. What would you guys violent fight that? He has thanks buddy. When they did that many tournament actually enjoyed McCollum DJ thought that was fun. That would make my list the one Dan would make my list shout. The bronze that are. He just tweeted was your favorite violent yesterday and a lot of good ones came in. But my media one the canon my less man to takes me as John Lineker verse. Louise, Cowden no that was back in twenty twelve thousand one of the first flyweight fights. And it was just a barn burner. Louis scout. No put John Leonard to sleep at the end of it. It was just insane shots and wasn't Alex Davis on this show sharing a story about that John Lennon to re spent his whole per diem that week to buy a PlayStation. He had no money for food and his thinking was why it's cut wait. Anyway. So why don't I spend my food money on PlayStation? And he had no money's like bumming water for Christ's sake going into the fight. And he loses the fight. Right. But they actually got fight of the night bonus. Of course. And that was such a big deal yet to negotiate. You know, really played at the heartstrings because of that bonus was this life changing to Leonard who actually lost that fight. You look we're his career went from there. So right love that fight. So I'm just gonna give you pieces of different fights. I don't I don't have the memory retention to remember like, you know, whole fights. I guess, but there's certain things about a couple of fights at all name for one. When benefit is sponsor Huto, man. I've never heard two guys at that way class crack each other like that. You could see both of their face, especially as a who does after he lost. You know, he thought he won right? But he had a he had a face like he was shook up, you know, they both were smart in fact, so who started to become more of housing having some polish kickboxing game. You know, what I benefit has got the call. But Suharto really really showed me that he had improved so much from where we know coming through wrestling. And then having all those those way cutting failures and all that another one I liked was if I could pick small cage to was I believe it was Ray board and our guy Johnny Herrera all. Yanni have been on our show a little bit. Yeah. There was an even though I think it was thirty twenty seven he may have gotten a twenty nine twenty one judge. I can't remember he just never gave up kind of how I described Jason ninety of the day. Remember Jason I was just getting owned, really. But he was still trying and he made Rinaldi like half the fight one of his best fights scourges wasn't indicative because Jason trion to. He just couldn't get out of that body triangle, you know, and Johnny he hurt Ray with his punching. And but Ray was just too much with the grappling. But it was just interesting to see someone not give up and this kid had been brought to us by gen wink. So we gave him a little bit of love on the show, and I like the coastal here, you you just can't help but start to like them. And then you guys obviously know Ray Bork was the guy that I managed to get to the studios. Well him, and I are Facebook buddies and we've chatted so. I like them both. But at the time, I didn't know Borg as well. Johnny was just a dude they came through here a lot, and he had that story with the sun and the other one was. Was Benedetti's and Elliott like the first round was so funny 'cause Tim Elliott was just pressuring Benedetti's, and they went through many different submission attempts. And I remember Rogan I think it was Rogan his head wanted exploding. Oh my God. I think he's got a banana split on them. You know? And it's true. But you see his legs out there. And he was trying to submit it's actually an actual submission. But I think Rogan was like I can't believe this fight might end with a banana split and benefit has got on it. But I mean, he pushed him, you know, for in that first round, and I really really enjoyed the grappling aspect of it. So it's just different things from these different fights the McCall, you know, member. He was goofing. Yes. Some say that may have cost them. Here's one look before you all go, you're at Benedetto's cheerleader. Of course comes here and doesn't show a lot nicest guy you'll ever meet. But here's a moment that I. That I'll never forget and actually had to do with of losing. I wasn't Sacramento and in this fight because Ben Evita's lost a split decision against DJ. And because Benhamouda's had had such a great run at W C. I think everyone felt benefit is can make some tweaks and he's gonna get DJ in the second fight. Remember that I fight was in Toronto. And I think is like a minus three hundred nobody's addict DJ to win that DJ want. It became one of the greatest ever. So in this fight. Everyone's like, oh my God. It's insanity. It's for the title. I think his teammates had gone like three and one that night. It was team alpha male night. Yeah. And the crowd was just pop in you know, and that was one time. I got to sit on press row. I don't really ask too. They don't really offer it. But because the show I think it was just sparsely-attended baby. Who knows I think it was a big function. I can't remember I remember Dave Schaller. The former communications director for the. When I got my ticket on. I forget what I guess when I first got there, they go. You're on pressure. Only, you know. And when I got those all cool, and I was actually sitting today. So it was a great experience because just tell me a few things about his job. But when I was there, I remember thinking man, this is gonna go one one, and I wonder when the trilogy OB, and then DJ hits them we had an exchange early in the fight. And then of eat is out. And then all you just heard this crowd, wait, which one the second time they fought. Well, he beat them both times. But the second time Vegas now is the second trust me. So as loud as it was when he got knocked out that no net like vortex noise. Like like, it just got they sucked the the noise and the doozy. Izam in the happiness that that little arena had in that mo- in deejay. Did it here's why I'll never forget. Because for one I just saw Ben Evita's out. And I was like oh my God. I it hurt me a little bit. To detail had been getting railed a lot about you just gotta decisions decision and watch DJ the way celebrates it's the same thing. You know, you see that all those spinning, but the see that close like the see the knockout, and then the spinning, and so my is it's like one I was on DJ and just seen his celebration
